Dermal fillers are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments, but we’re all familiar with celebrities getting flack for looking too “done.” There’s nothing wrong with wanting to enhance your appearance, but no one wants to look fake. You might be wondering if there are fillers that can enhance your natural beauty without exaggerating your features.
Achieving a natural look with dermal fillers is as much about the injector you see as it is about what type of filler you’re using. However, there are some fillers that provide a more natural-looking result by default.
Injections of fillers that use hyaluronic acid and Sculptra are examples of natural fillers that we offer at Entre Nous Aesthetics in Menlo Park. They’re some of our favorite noninvasive facial treatments because they’re a quick treatment with stunning results.
What makes a filler natural?
The most common facial fillers are made using hyaluronic acid—a substance that already naturally occurs in your body.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a slippery substance found around your eyes, joints, and skin. It helps your body retain moisture and keep things smooth and flexible.
As we age, our body produces less hyaluronic acid over time, and is one of the reasons our skin becomes less elastic and flexible. When our skin is less elastic, it leads to things like wrinkles and sagging.
How do HA fillers work?
HA fillers replace the volume lost in your skin. They’re formulated to mimic your body’s natural HA. When injected, the hyaluronic acid immediately fills in wrinkles. More than that, the filler helps your skin retain moisture and improves your skin’s health and appearance over time.
There’s evidence that hyaluronic acid also boosts your body’s production of collagen slowly over time. This means you’ll need fewer maintenance treatments with natural fillers in Menlo Park.
Available Natural Fillers in Menlo Park
Like a painter with a palette of colors, we have many fillers to choose from. After a consultation with one of our expert providers, we will recommend specific formulas to achieve your desired results.
Juvéderm is one of the most popular brands of filler because of its proven reputation. There are several formulas that are designed to specifically target wrinkles in various areas of the face. Juvéderm fillers are FDA-approved and have been widely studied in patients of all skin types and tones.
Restylane is an incredibly versatile product, but the most popular application for this filler is addressing under-eye circles and bags. Dark circles under your eyes are often the result of fat bulging in the lower eyelid that’s exaggerated by an area called the “tear trough.” Placing Restylane here can leave you looking refreshed and more awake.
The RHA collection is another brand of natural filler we offer in our Menlo Park office. RHA fillers are designed to closely mimic your body’s natural hyaluronic acid, making them more responsive to how your face moves normally. Results with RHA can last up to 15 months in some patients!
Sculptra: The Most Natural Filler in Menlo Park
Sculptra® is arguably the most natural filler because it stimulates your body’s own collagen production to fill in lost volume. Collagen is basically your body’s built-in natural filler.
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra works differently than most other fillers. This is because Sculptra is formulated using poly-L lactic acid. When injected into the skin, it stimulates your body’s natural collagen production.
Sculptra Results Improve Over Time
Results from Sculptra take longer to see compared to HA filler, but they also last longer. For 2 to 4 years in some patients!

A Noninvasive, Nonsurgical Treatment
Fillers are a non-surgical solution to signs of aging like wrinkles and facial volume loss. There’s no downtime or required recovery time after your treatment.
Results from your dermal filler injections can last up to 12 months. They can last even longer if you’re using Sculptra!
Great for Subtle Enhancements
Fillers provide natural-looking enhancements to your facial contours. With an expert injector, you can achieve subtle enhancements that will leave you looking refreshed without anyone being able to tell why!
Dermal fillers, especially natural fillers like Sculptra, are completely customizable to your facial anatomy. How much filler we use is determined by your desired results, you’re still completely in control of your aesthetic!
Combine With Other Injectables
Not only is it possible for us to combine different filler formulas, but we can also combine fillers and neuromodulators like Daxxify to achieve your desired results. Dermal fillers also combine really well with other skin rejuvenation treatments too.
Improve Your Skin’s Health
Both Sculptra and HA fillers can improve your skin’s appearance over time by promoting the growth of new collagen and elastin. These two proteins are responsible for keeping your skin refreshed.
HA Fillers Are Reversible
If for any reason you’re not happy with your results, HA fillers can be dissolved to reverse their effects.
Looking Natural With Fillers Requires an Expert Injector
When you’re wanting to achieve natural filler results, it’s important to visit a provider you can trust and who has the expertise you need. You should always look for a med spa overseen by a licensed plastic surgeon and medical staff.
How We Use Natural Fillers at Entre Nous
We perform cheekbone contouring with the use of dermal fillers like Sculptra® or those from the Juvederm and Galderma families. With strategic injections, we can refresh your natural contours and replace lost volume.
Whether you want the ultra-chiseled look or just a subtle enhancement, we can help you define your jawline with HA dermal fillers.
Similar to the jawline and cheekbone contour, we can help you achieve a more balanced profile with dermal fillers for the chin.
Lip augmentation is the process by which one of our expert injectors adds volume to your lips with dermal fillers. Fillers are a great way to perfect your pout and address thinning lips.
How To Get the Most Out of Your Dermal Fillers
Take Care of Your Skin
The best thing you can do to achieve long-lasting fillers is to take care of your skin by using medical-grade skincare products and following a regular skincare routine. Keeping your skin cleansed, moisturized, and protected from the sun are crucial steps to prolonging your dermal filler results.
Eat Healthily and Stay Hydrated
Your diet is one of the most important parts of your skincare routine because of how much it affects your body. Eating a diet with plenty of vitamins and minerals is crucial to maintaining your general health, as well as your skin. Plus, staying hydrated is important because your skin is mostly made up of water.
Schedule Maintenance Treatments
Dermal filler results are long-lasting but they aren’t permanent, so it’s important to schedule your regular touch-ups to maintain your results.
