Injectable Dermal Fillers
What are Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Restylane® Silk and Voluma?
As we age, we lose our youthful face shape and start to see sagging, hallowing, wrinkles and furrows. Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Restylane® Silk and Voluma, are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. Injectable fillers put youthful shape back into your face.

When it comes to injectables, experience and technique matters. Dr. Douglas Key has traveled the world to study the most advanced injection techniques. Dr. Key’s extensive research and study demonstrated that the best results are found when the smallest needles are used – microcannulas or needleless needles. Key Laser has led the way in adopting microcannulas for injecting dermal fillers and was among the first selected to offer Restylane® Silk – specially formulated for the tiniest lines.

A microcannula is as small as a needle but has no sharpness at the tip. The rounded tip is gentler to delicate facial tissue, resulting in less discomfort, less bruising and less swelling, and most importantly far greater safety than using a regular sharp-tipped needle.

Dermal Fillers in Portland, Oregon: Frequently Asked Questions
You don’t always have to sacrifice comfort to look your best. Our filler treatments are very well tolerated, with most patients reporting little to no pain. Most of our fillers contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, in their formulation. Additionally, we use microcannulas, not needles, in a unique approach that is gentler to the skin and reduces discomfort. We can also use a topical numbing cream before your injections if needed.
Most of our dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid (HA) based. This substance is naturally found in the skin, eyes, and joints. HA is biocompatible and very gentle on the skin. Allergic reactions are virtually nonexistent, and pre-treatment allergy testing is not needed.
We’ll help you choose a suitable lip filler before your treatment. Restylane Silk is a popular option for the lips, as it features a small particle size and smooth gel formulation. It is specifically formulated for use on the delicate lip tissues.
Treatment costs depend on several factors, including the filler used and the amount of product needed. We’ll provide a customized estimate for your treatment before we get started. Overall, injectable fillers are much more affordable than their surgical alternatives. Non-surgical treatments, like those offered at Key Laser, are very effective and typically much less expensive and risky than surgical treatments.
We use fillers to treat almost every area of the face. Popular treatment areas include the brows, around the eyes, the cheeks, and lips.
We carry many top fillers, and our skincare experts will help you choose effective treatment options for your problem areas. Each filler is formulated differently and designed to work well on specific facial zones. Be sure to ask about Sculptra, Voluma, Restylane, and Juvéderm in Portland, OR.
