Not everyone looking to refresh and rejuvenate their appearance is ready for the stress or commitment of a surgical procedure. Plastic Surgery Associates has a safe, fast, and effective option for noninvasive facial rejuvenation: injectable dermal fillers. By eliminating the fine lines, deep wrinkles, and loss of facial volume that comes with the aging process, injectable fillers can restore a youthful appearance in minutes. Patients in Santa Rosa and Novato can now choose from the latest dermal fillers, for long-lasting results, without the hassle of a surgical procedure.
Cutting-Edge Dermal Fillers
Plastic Surgery Associates brings patients a variety of injectable fillers, all approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a safe and trusted method for temporarily easing wrinkles and erasing fine lines. Made from Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance found in healthy skin, fillers like Juvederm, Voluma XC, Volbella, and Restylane are both safe and effective. As the HA pulls in moisture from surrounding tissues, the injectable fillers naturally boost the production of collagen along the targeted area. With little chance for complications, the plumping benefits from HA fillers can be seen immediately, and can last for six months to over a year.
Injectable Fillers Can:
- Improve fine lines
- Smooth deep creases
- Restore volume under the eyes, along the cheeks, and across the jaw
- Contour facial features
- Plump lips
- Ease lip lines
- Create defined lip borders
- Add fullness to lax neck tissue
Your Filler Options in Napa Valley
The aesthetic professionals at Plastic Surgery Associates understand that not every filler is right for every patient. Each filler is created using a unique formula, with a certain molecule size and composition, to treat a specific set of issues. The best filler will depend on the target area, skin condition, patient’s health, and desired results. Prior to treatment, a complimentary consultation will be scheduled with Plastic Surgery Associates’ Dr. Francisco Canales or Dr. Heather Furnas. At this time, the right filler for the individual situation will be determined, and a personalized treatment plan will be created.
Injectable Fillers Include:
Juvederm– One of today’s most popular dermal fillers, Juvederm is made for treating mild to moderate static wrinkles, resulting from loss of tissue elasticity. Juvederm can restore volume under the eyes, shape the cheekbones, and create natural, healthy facial contours. The HA filler is excellent for improving Nasolabial Folds (running from the nose to the lips) and Marionette Lines (from the edges of the lips to the chin). Juvederm consistently provides results that will last from six to twelve months.
Juvederm Voluma XC – Voluma XC was the first dermal filler approved by the FDA as a safe and effective method for restoring facial volume along the cheeks and jawline. Strategically placed, Voluma XC is a ‘heavy duty’ HA filler that works well at restoring shape to the features. Premixed with lidocaine, Voluma XC injections are not considered painful. A long-lasting HA filler, the results from Voluma XC will last for up to two years. Click Here to Learn More.
Juvederm Volbella – The newest member of the Juvederm family, Volbella is made for restoring volume to delicate areas of the face, especially the lips and perioral area. One session with Volbella will create full, contoured lips that last up to 12 months. Unlike traditional fillers, Volbella is made from a low concentration HA, meaning less unexpected swelling. For patient comfort, Volbella is premixed with lidocaine. Click Here to Learn More.
Juvederm Vollure – Juvederm Vollure XC is one of the most anticipated, second-generation soft tissue fillers now available from Allegro MedSpa. Using Juvederm’s trusted Vycross technology, Vollure blends together a unique variety of hyaluronic acid molecules, of different sizes and weights, creating a smooth, malleable gel. This Vycross cross-linking gives Vollure XC the unmatched ability to smooth deep facial lines, such as Nasolabial Folds, for months longer than any other dermal filler. Vollure is the first and only FDA-approved filler with the ability to ease Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines for 15 to 18 months. Click Here to Learn More.
Restylane – Restylane was the first dermal filler created from HA. With smooth, consistently sized particles of HA, Restylane works well on moderate to severe facial lines. Restylane is great for improving the appearance of acne scars and deep facial lines, like Nasolabial Folds. The results from Restylane will last for six to nine months. Restylane is premixed with lidocaine for patient comfort.
Restylane Silk – Designed for plump, smooth, shapely lips with natural-looking contours, Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved injectable created solely for sculpting the lips and mouth. Restylane Silk utilizes small particles of hyaluronic acid for consistent results across delicate tissues. One treatment can also eliminate lip lines for six months or longer.

Restylane Refyne – One of the Restylane newest, next-generation fillers, Refyne is made for moderate to deep facial lines. Refyne is designed to be very flexible, offering patients subtle tissue support and results that last up to a year.
Restylane’s Defyne – Created using Restylane’s cutting-edge XpresHA Technology, Defyne is more flexible than its sister product, Refyne. Defyne has the ability to give tissues additional support, when needed, better contouring deep lines like nasolabial folds and smile lines. Restylane Refyne is shown to keep tissues smooth, and plump severe facial lines, for up to 12 months.
Filler Treatments in Marin & Sonoma County
Each injectable session is performed in one of Plastic Surgery Associates’ private treatment rooms and will take less than half an hour. Many fillers are premixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, for a comfortable experience. For those patients needing additional comfort, other local or topical anesthetics can be requested.
The results from dermal filler injections can be seen right away. Depending on the specific filler, and the area being treated, benefits will last from six to twelve months, sometimes longer. Once the results begin to fade, a quick, repeat session will maintain the smooth, youthful results.
Side-effects of fillers are normally mild. These can include redness, minor swelling, bruising, and pinpoint bleeding. Itching and tenderness are also common. More serious complications are rare, but in some instances infection, nodules, and permanent nerve damage can occur. For the most satisfying results, patients are always encouraged to seek out the advice of an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas.
