Fillers Bend Oregon
It’s natural as people age for the body’s existing collagen and collagen production to decrease. As we age you will also find it’s normal to see a reduction in bone density/volume and a reduction in the fat pads, both bone and fat working together to contour our facial anatomy. The side affect to this natural aging cycle leads to loose skin on the face and body, and increased lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are extremely effective at restoring collagen levels and addressing volume loss giving the patient rejuvenated skin and more youthful definition.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers, also known as fillers, often contain either poly-L-lactic acid or hyaluronic acid. The exact type used will depend on the areas of your body that need treatment.
Poly-L-lactic acid fillers work as collagen stimulators, which essentially kickstarts the body’s production of collagen when injected.
Hyaluronic acid fillers work by replenishing areas of the body with hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule with hydrating and boosting properties that occurs naturally in the body.
Treatment is administered through a series of injections, providing elasticity and firmness to the skin, as well as volume to the face and diminishing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
Filler treatments typically require multiple sessions over the course of several weeks or months. The exact number of sessions will depend on your specific needs.
Areas Treated with Dermal Fillers
- Lines around the nose and mouth (including frown lines, smile lines, lip lines, and facial folds)
- Upper neck
Cost For Dermal Filler Treatment
The rule of thumb for Poly-L-Lactic Acid (collagen inducing filler) is one vial per decade of age, however, not everyone’s skin has aged at the rate of time.
When referring to HA filler it depends on your unique needs, which is why we keep consultations complimentary. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on the number of vials you need. For an estimate, please contact us at (541) 203-0508.

During Your Dermal Filler Bend Appointment

Plan to spend one hour during your appointment.
After Your Dermal Filler Bend Appointment
You will need several injections over the course of multiple weeks before you begin to notice results. This is because polly-l-lactic acid dermal fillers work by naturally boosting your collagen production. Once the desired results are achieved, they can last between 6 months to 2 years (depending on the exact dermal filler treatment that was used). In the case if HA filler, patients can be mildly swollen for up to a few weeks.
After every session, apply sunscreen when going outside to protect the areas that were injected. Your Dermal Filler Specialist at AHM will provide you with post-care instructions.
