Replenish your natural beauty with dermal fillers in Los Gatos

Youthful skin is supported by a host of natural compounds, including collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which give the complexion its suppleness, firmness, and youthful glow. With the aging process, these vital ingredients are produced in lesser amounts, causing sagging, wrinkles, and volume loss in the skin. Many dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and the RHA Collection, are made with a biocompatible form of HA that boosts skin hydration and radiance. Other fillers, such as Radiesse, are called “biostimulators” because they stimulate the body to generate new collagen stores, strengthening the skin’s underlying structures from within.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected into the skin to accomplish a variety of aesthetic goals, including plumping depleted contours in the lips, cheeks, and temples, and smoothing away lines, creases, and folds that make patients look older than they feel. For patients who don’t wish to undergo invasive plastic surgery that comes with higher costs, longer downtimes, and greater risks, facial fillers may be an ideal solution. Treatment is typically painless with fillers, and patients can go home immediately after their sessions. 

What are the benefits of dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers come with a wide array of advantages that make them a leading choice for discerning patients. They can be combined with almost any other cosmetic treatment to enhance and expand your results. Benefits include:

  • Non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Corrects static lines, creases, and folds
  • Replenishes lost facial volume
  • Creates more youthful-looking contours
  • Can be used as part of a liquid facelift or rhinoplasty
  • No downtime or discomfort
  • Enhances self-confidence
  • Results last 6-18 months on average

Dermal filler options at SVIA Medspa


The Juvederm family of fillers is an expanding line of injectables, each engineered to address a unique aesthetic concern. Some Juvederm products combat thinning lips while others are designed to pinpoint volume loss in the midface. All Juvederm products are made with naturally derived hyaluronic acid, making them a safe choice for almost everyone.

RHA Collection

RHA fillers represent a leap forward in filler technology, as they are engineered with longer molecule chains to more closely resemble the HA found in human skin. RHA fillers are highly flexible and malleable, and they help to preserve spontaneity even while the face is in motion.


Radiesse is formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a compound that stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, a youth-enhancing protein. Radiesse provides outstanding support for rejuvenating the cheeks, chin, and jawline, with results lasting as long as 14 months.


Like Juvederm, Belotero is made with hyaluronic acid for silky, smooth skin. However, Belotero has a thinner texture and is injected more superficially than Juvederm, making it ideal for addressing more delicate cosmetic concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

What can I expect from my San Mateo dermal filler session?

While many dermal fillers contain a built-in topical anesthetic to make treatment more comfortable, our team will ensure that your session is stress-free by working with additional skin-numbing agents if needed. The needles used to inject facial fillers are typically ultra-thin and do not cause pain. Once your skin has been cleansed and numbed, your provider will select the strategic points in your treatment zones and mark them with a surgical pen. Your choice of filler is then injected in a matter of minutes. After your session, you can immediately resume your normal schedule. For this reason, many patients choose to undergo fillers over their lunch breaks.


Is there any recovery or downtime?

Patients can return right away to their normal schedules after a dermal filler session in Los Gatos or San Mateo. Minor swelling, bruising, and tenderness may be present at the injection sites, but these side effects typically fade within a few hours or by the end of the day. While there are no real restrictions, it is generally recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and direct sun for at least 24 hours.
