Injectable Filler (Juvederm/Restylane/RHA)

Dermal Filler Specialist in the San Francisco Bay Area

At PotozkinMD Skin Care and Laser Center, our board-certified dermatologists are experts in cosmetic injectable treatments that restore lost volume and enhance facial features.

What are Dermal Fillers (Juvederm/Restylane/RHA) used for?

We all experience fine lines, wrinkles, lost volume, and lost facial definition as we age. Gravity tends to start pulling our face downwards and issues with skin laxity begin. There are an array of safe and effective dermal fillers that can be used to treat these signs of aging.

Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like substances used to treat a wide range of cosmetic concerns. Each brand of filler has a unique formula that can be used to treat specific issues in different targeted areas of the face.

Dermal fillers can lift, contour, and reshape areas of concern that you are looking to improve and help you gain your confidence back. 

It’s extremely important to find a board-certified dermatologist for your injections. Dr. Potozkin and Dr. Ellis specialize in minimally-to-non-invasive procedures and are both able to help you achieve ideal results with the perfect blend of art, science, and care. The way everyone carries their signs of aging is different. We take a conservative, individualized approach on every patient we see. 

Dermal fillers are primarily used to rejuvenate the appearance by restoring structure and balance to various areas of the face. Depending on which filler is used and where it’s used, results usually last between 9 and 24 months. On average, treatment time is 45-60 minutes.

The primary uses for dermal fillers include:

  • Plumping lips
  • Enhancing or filling in shadowed areas of the face such as flattened cheeks and hollow temples
  • Improving overall symmetry and definition of facial features
  • Diminishing or removing under-eye shadowsFilling in recessed scars
  • Softening static lines around the mouth and nose due to loss of collagen and elasticity

More information about the RHA® collection of dermal filler

The RHA® collection is a group of designer hyaluronic acid fillers that are FDA-approved to treat dynamic wrinkles and folds. Because we are repetitively making micro-movements with our face, such as squinting or laughing, it creates these dynamic areas that are harder to treat with dermal filler. Dermal filler traditionally would’ve made these areas appear too stiff or unnatural when the face is moving. 

The RHA® collection was created and designed to adapt comfortably for your facial movement. These fillers look more natural both when your face is moving and at rest.

Some of the key benefits to RHA® filler are:

  • Designed to be more natural looking through dynamic movements
  • Intentionally made to be more like the natural hyaluronic acid in your skin
  • It is the latest advancement in HA filler technology
  • Results are immediate and can last for up to 15 months 

RHA® filler can be used for:

  • Lips
  • Under-eyes
  • Jowls
  • Nose creases
  • Lip creases
  • Cheeks and more 

RHA2 is used for anyone looking to have a natural lip plump. It can also be used to fill and smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the face.

RHA3 is used if you feel that an area of your face needs a lift. This filler can target deeper wrinkles and folds– around the nasolabial area, lip corners, and jowls. 

RHA4 is used to target deep wrinkles specifically in the cheeks and jowls. It brings volume to those areas and can be used to contour the cheeks and jawline.

 The RHA® collection can only be found in select practices that have been chosen based on reputation for having the best patient outcomes. We are proud to be able to offer this brand to our patients at PotozkinMD. 

At your initial consultation, we will review and discuss all of your areas of concern and develop a customized treatment plan to help you get the look you desire. 

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
