Dermal Fillers in Palo Alto, San Jose, and the Bay Area

It’s because these advanced products have the ability to non-surgically improve nearly any area of the face, delivering subtle yet significant results — with almost no downtime at all. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers (also called facial fillers) are a quick, convenient, and relatively painless way to make changes to the areas of your face that bother you. This includes the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and hollow areas. For many patients, dermal fillers can take 5 to 10 years off the face, providing a “liquid facelift”. All of our dermal fillers are FDA approved, and are very safe when administered by Dr. Jill Hessler.

How dermal fillers work

Injectable facial fillers are made of a soft-tissue substance that, when injected, address the skin changes that occur with aging. These changes include decreased collagen, elastin, and hyaluron — which causes the skin to lose its firmness, elasticity, strength, and hydration. Dermal fillers contain specially formulated ingredients that restore these elements to the skin. Although results from facial fillers are beautiful, they are also temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body.

Dermal fillers available at Hessler Plastic Surgery

Restylane® Refyne/Defyne

Used for nasolabial folds and marionette lines
Laughing is a beautiful thing, but for many people, their laugh lines around the mouth bother them. Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are used to soften laugh lines without removing the natural movement of your face — so you still look like yourself, only better. Results can last up to one year.  

Restylane Silk

Used for plumping lips and smoothing lip lines
Restylane Silk is the very first FDA approved lip filler. It is used to plump lips and also smooth out vertical lines around the mouth. Results from Restylane Silk last about six months. 

Restylane Lyft

Used for sagging cheeks and moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles
With age, the volume of our cheeks begins to decrease, which can result in visible signs of aging such as loose facial skin, lines, and folds in the skin. Restylane Lyft addresses these concerns, providing a subtle yet effective lift to sagging cheeks, as well as softening lines and facial folds in a natural-looking way. Restylane Lyft results last 6 to 9 months. 

Restylane Kysse 

Used for plumping lips and smoothing upper lip lines
The newest addition to the Restylane family, Kysse is a lip filler that provides plumper lips and softened lip lines, without changing the way you laugh, smile, and kiss. The new filler technology molds to your tissue to change what you want changed, but to keep what you want to keep. Restylane Kysse both looks and feels natural, with long-lasting results up to one year.  


Used to restore facial volume and collagen production
Sculptra is the only FDA approved facial injectable that has the ability to stimulate collagen production. It is used to improve sunken cheeks and temples, as well as deep lines, creases, and folds. Sculptra results are very long-lasting, with some lasting up to two years.

Juvéderm® Ultra

Used for lip plumping, mild wrinkles, and moderate volume
Juvéderm Ultra is the dermal filler most commonly used for what is known as a “liquid facelift” because of its ability to plump the skin and lift the face. Juvéderm Ultra is also an excellent choice for lip plumping that looks beautifully natural. Results usually last 6 to 9 months.

Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC

Used for moderate facial lines and jaw contouring
Made of a thicker gel than Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus achieves significant results for deeper wrinkles. It also provides volume for the cheeks or jaw. Results usually last 9 to 12 months.

Juvéderm Vollure

Used for under the eyes, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds
Juvéderm Vollure is made of medium thick gel, and is ideal for correcting marionette lines and nasolabial folds at the mouth. It is also a good option for softening deep wrinkles. Results from Vollure last up to 18 months.

Juvéderm Volbella 

Used for fine lines, under the eyes, and lip contouring
Juvéderm Volbella is made with a thin gel which makes it perfect for improving more superficial lines of the face. Volbella is also a lip filler that can help contour the lips in a very soft, subtle, natural way. Results typically last up to 18 months.

Juvéderm Voluma

Used for cheeks and chin
Juvéderm Voluma is the first FDA approved dermal filler specifically designed to correct sunken facial skin and add volume to the mid-face, define a weak chin, and contour the cheeks. Voluma is made of the thickest and most effective gel from the Juvéderm line family of products. Results can last up to two years.
