Dermal Fillers In Reno, NV

The older we get, the more people are seeking to restore youthful energy and radiance to their faces. Whether this involves eliminating the appearance of wrinkles or restoring volume to the face, the injection of dermal fillers can help you achieve the new look you’ve been desiring.


Many people think that the only way to achieve a more youthful look is to freeze the facial muscles to get rid of wrinkles through the use of injectables like BOTOXⓇ. However, BOTOX may not be for everyone. That’s where dermal facial fillers come. Because each filler serves a purpose and can be injected into almost any area of the face to achieve a specific goal, dermal fillers are great for minimizing the appearance of aging, eliminating fine lines, or adding volume to the face for additional plumpness.

Facial Filler Treatment Options

Dr. Phillip Dahan and his team understand the importance of looking and feeling great in your own skin, especially as you age. That’s why we are proud to offer three different facial filler treatments for all our patients.

Juvéderm® is an FDA-approved popular dermal filler brand made with hyaluronic acid to provide buffering in the joints, moisture in the skin, and lubrication in the eyes. Because hyaluronic acid gets absorbed by the body as time goes on, it makes sense to use this ingredient to fill in lines and wrinkles and restore volume in areas of the face that appear sunken in. JUVÉDERM is used to treat patients seeking a youthful restoration of the face, providing a natural, more radiant appearance.

Restylane is an injectable gel filler made of hyaluronic acid that is best used to fill in areas of the face that have lost volume such as the cheeks or the chin. One of the biggest specificities of Restylane is that its texture is more granular than JUVÉDERM’s smoothness, making it ideal for facial contouring and redefining angles and overall face shape.


At our office, we offer the following Restylane products:

  • Restylane Kysse: Lip filler that adds volume, smooths upper lip lines for up to one year, and enhances lip color
  • Restylane Lyft: Creates volume in the mid-face and the cheeks
  • Restylane Refyne: Fills in fine to moderate laugh and smile wrinkles

Sculptra® Aesthetic injectables are one of the best facial fillers for restoring fat loss that occur due to the natural process of aging. As we age, skin can sag, sink, or deplete. Sculptra restores collagen to the face, filling out sunken areas and giving the appearance of a fuller, youthful, plumper facial structure. This filler is recommended for older patients who are looking to add volume to their skin in an easy, natural-looking way.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Facial Fillers?

Ideal candidates are those who are in overall good health, have reached and can maintain their ideal body weight, and do not have underlying health conditions. Facial fillers may not be right for you if you have a sensitivity to numbing treatments or lidocaine, which is often found in hyaluronic acid formulas used in the injections. It’s also important to keep a positive and realistic outlook regarding the results of your treatment.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Results will vary from patient to patient and are dependent on the type of filler you are treated with; however, most facial filler results can last anywhere from two months to five years. With the proper care, maintenance, and treatment, filler results can last several years.

What Is the Recovery Process Like?

Depending on the type of filler you get, most facial fillers have a recovery time of two days. While some patients may experience soreness at the injection site, most can return to their normal lifestyles after this time. Some filler procedures are so quick and simple that they are called “lunchtime hour fillers” because patients can get them done in as little as thirty minutes with little to no downtime.

What Are the Risks of Facial Fillers?

Facial fillers, just as with any other type of injections, do come with some risks and side effects. These can include bruising, redness, soreness, swelling, itching, rashes, stretching of the skin, and weakness in the muscles over time. Dr. Dahan prioritizes patient safety and education and informs all potential candidates about the risks of filler before beginning any procedure. With proper care, these side effects can be managed and avoided.

What Are the Benefits of Facial Fillers?

Getting facial fillers allows patients the luxury of leaving their facial care in the hands of professionals who understand the importance of feeling good in your own skin. In addition to eliminating wrinkles, smoothing fine lines, and achieving a more youthful look, patients often say that getting facial fillers allows them to achieve the cosmetic look they’ve always desired, resulting in newfound confidence and improved self-image!
