As we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumizers and moisturizers such as hyaluronic acid (HA) diminish, leaving lines and wrinkles where our skin was once youthful, even and radiant. Belotero Balance® is an HA dermal filler, made of the same volumizing and moisturizing component of your skin, so it is the natural choice for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
When injected, it instantly plumps and adds volume to the areas where it has been lost. Even the finest lines can be treated with confidence with Belotero®, offered in Portland by premier plastic surgeon Dr. Magilke.
Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas.* From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
Portland Face Doctor offers Juvéderm Volbella®, a smaller syringe dermal filler providing more affordable, subtle volume to the lips and softening the appearance of fine lines around the mouth while providing longer lasting results than other dermal fillers.

If your face has lost significant volume, either due to aging or weight loss, replacing that volume with a long-lasting filler can make a big difference. Adding volume to your cheeks can also improve a youthful contour. When you are looking for this type of improvement, Radiesse® is a great choice.
Radiesse® contains hydroxyappetite, a chemical naturally found in your body. It has been reproduced in a laboratory. No animal products are used, so allergic reactions are not a concern. Dr. Magilke offers Radiesse® to Portland patients, which provides a scaffold for your own collagen in-growth. The result is a natural appearing volume enhancement for deep lines around the mouth and lower face, as well augmentation of the cheeks.
Dr. Magilke offers Restylane® to his Portland clientele. The Restylane® family of products includes Restylane® and Restylane-L®. These products can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). They may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.
Dermal Filler FAQs
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable skin treatments that can be used to lift and sculpt the face to improve skin texture and provide patients with a smoother complexion. Dermal fillers are designed to closely resemble the natural collagen produced by the body that tends to diminish as we age.
Which Areas Can Be Treated with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are commonly used to enhance the shape and fullness of the lips, smooth away the lines between the corner of the mouth and the nose, and revitalize the appearance of the cheeks.
How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost in Portland?
Dermal filler cost varies from patient to patient. Dermal fillers are priced per syringe, so the cost of a treatment depends on the product used and the extent of the procedure. The cost of products like Restylane and Juvederm ranges from approximately $500 to $700 per syringe, with facial treatments typically requiring two syringes. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Magilke for a personal dermal filler cost quote.

Dermal filler effects are not permanent but are long-lasting. Depending on the product used, the treatment area, and the patients’ current skin condition, dermal filler results will typically last anywhere from six months to two years.

- Post-treatment swelling (24-72 hours)

Dermal Fillers vs. Botox
Dermal fillers and Botox are both minimally-invasive cosmetic skin treatments but are vastly different in terms of their methods and results. Botox is used to paralyze muscle movement to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and from lines that have been caused by repeated facial expressions. Results typically last for three to four months. Dermal fillers are used to add fullness to the facial features, typically in the cheeks, lips, as well as the nasal labial folds and marionette line. Results last up to two years.
