If you’re interested in improving your appearance through dermal fillers, don’t hesitate to contact the Advanced Dermatology and Laser Institute of Seattle today at 206-402-4797 to schedule your appointment.

What Can Dermal Fillers Do for You?

Dermal fillers are excellent for achieving a variety of results, including:

  • Plumping and shaping thin lips
  • Adding volume to the cheekbones or temples
  • Enhancing the chin
  • Smoothing nasolabial folds and lip lines
  • Reducing the appearance of dark circles under the eyes

Strategic use of fillers can help to create more youthful, harmonious facial features. Dr. Greene and our estheticians have extensive experience creating beautiful, natural results. We aim to enhance your natural features, not make you over into someone else.

We take particular care not to “overfill” any targeted area, and we work very closely with you to make sure you are happy with your results.

Types of Dermal Fillers We Offer

We offer many different types of fillers in order to target specific areas in the best way possible. Not all fillers are the same, so we take care to choose the ones that are best suited for your desired results. A softer, more malleable filler will be better for delicate, precise work such as filling under eye circles, while a firmer filler will be better for lifting the cheeks or sharpening the chin.

Dermal fillers that we offer include:

  • Juvederm
  • Restylane
  • Belotero Balance
  • Radiesse
  • Sculptra
  • Voluma

Each of these has their own benefits, and we will be happy to discuss which ones are best for you during your consultation.

What Is a Dermal Filler Procedure Like?

Dermal filler injections are not painful. You may experience some minor discomfort, but most patients find the procedure very tolerable. Depending on how many areas you are having treated, a dermal filler treatment can take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes.

You may experience some minor side effects following treatment, such as:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness

These do not last long, though. Typically, any side effects clear up within a day or two. Lip injections may result in a longer period of swelling, but you can manage it with ice and keeping your head elevated. Any noticeable bruising can be covered with makeup.

Combining Dermal Fillers with Other Cosmetic Treatments

Dermal fillers can be combined with other treatments for a “liquid facelift” that turns the clock back on your appearance with no need for incisions or anesthesia. Popular procedures that patients like to combine with fillers include:

We’ll discuss your concerns in detail during your consultation, and come up with the best treatment plan to reach your goals.

Skin Cancer in Skin of Color

Skin cancer in skin of color
There’s a common myth that people with darker skin aren’t susceptible to skin cancer, but that falsehood puts many people at risk. A study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found that 63 percent of black Americans reported never using sunscreen.

While it’s true that black-and-brown-skinned people are at a lower risk for skin cancers associated with ultraviolet radiation, they’re not invulnerable. In fact, certain forms of skin cancer are more common in that demographic. Skin cancers in Asian, black, and Latino people are also more likely to be diagnosed at a later stage, and consequently have a higher mortality rate. More »

Ask the Expert: Can You Get Skin Cancer “Where the Sun Doesn’t Shine?” Should You Remove All Clothing for a Skin Exam?

Yes, and yes again! While skin cancers are less commonly diagnosed in areas that are normally shielded from the sun, they can and do develop there. There are a number of factors that play a role in the development of skin cancer — including genetics and environmental pollution — that have nothing to do with the sun’s rays. One of the reasons why a complete skin exam is so valuable is that your dermatologist will be able to notice changes that may be normally hidden under clothing. This way, any suspected skin cancers can be diagnosed and treated promptly. Don’t worry, your doctor will respect your modesty with an exam gown and/or cloth draping.
