Dermal Fillers in Portland
Replace Lost Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid With Juvéderm® and More
The smooth texture and rounded contours of a youthful face are due to healthy levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin, well-distributed facial fat, plenty of elastin, and other elements. Faces take on an aged appearance as collagen and elastin concentrations are depleted, leading to less elastic skin and the formation of wrinkles. Collagen and fat loss can also cause the structure of the face to change, deflating full areas and leading to sagging lower down. While surgery is one solution, patients seeking a nonsurgical option can find it in dermal fillers at Portland’s Waldorf Center for Plastic Surgery.
There are several types of dermal fillers available, with each one offering unique benefits. All are made from elements that add volume where injected for a temporary improvement, and then are safely processed by the body. The duration of the effects depends on the specific dermal filler chosen, as well as the skill and technique of the injector.

Your Consultation For Dermal Fillers
No matter who you choose to administer your dermal fillers, you will have a consultation that will allow you to ask any questions you have about the injectable, the process, and the results. The consultation will also allow your injector to examine your face and determine which of the available dermal fillers would be best to treat your wrinkles or other signs of aging. Be sure to explain the desired end result, so your injector can assess your face as it is now and develop a plan to address the issues you want addressed.

Types of Dermal Fillers
One of the most well-known dermal fillers, Juvéderm® XC is intended for temporarily smoothing out moderate to severe facial lines, especially nasolabial folds.
This hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler is formulated for adding volume to the apple of the cheeks, rounding out hollow or sunken areas and lifting sagging tissue that causes drooping lower on the face. Learn more about Voluma® here.
Similar to Juvéderm®, Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid-based filler also used to smooth out nasolabial folds and other lines. Restylane Lyft® is also used to add midface volume.
Unlike the other dermal fillers listed here, the active ingredient in Radiesse® is calcium hydroxylapatite, which, when coupled with the suspension gel, adds immediate volume, but also stimulates new collagen production to provide ongoing improvement in the look of the skin where it is injected.
Another hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler especially suited for addressing nasolabial folds, Belotero Balance® is a smooth gel that adds volume where injected.
Recovering from Dermal Fillers
Every dermal filler has its own specific aftercare instructions, but because the injectables are nonsurgical, they all offer patients results with no down time to speak of.
What Do Dermal Fillers Cost in Portland?
Cost can be discussed at the consultation, when the specific dermal filler and how much of it to be used will be determined based on each patient’s skin, facial structure, and goals.
What Treatments Complement Dermal Fillers at the Waldorf Center?
Since dermal fillers add volume, they work best on static wrinkles, which develop as collagen and hyaluronic acid diminish. Dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repetitive muscle movements, can be temporarily smoothed by BOTOX® Cosmetic, which relaxes the muscles and reduces the appearance of the lines— primarily forehead lines and crow’s feet.
Patients seeking results that will last longer than several months to two years, depending on the dermal filler, may want to explore the results possible with a brow lift or eyelid surgery, which can be performed separately or together to change upper facial contours.
