Dermal Fillers Injections in Fremont, CA

DERMAL FILLERS at Ariba med spa

Dermal fillers have risen in popularity because of their versatility and ability to achieve multiple outcomes. Repetitive muscle movements, environmental factors, and natural aging cause our skin to lose volume and elasticity over time. At Ariba Med Spa, we use dermal fillers to replenish youthful suppleness and improve facial contours to reach individual aesthetic goals.


We use dermal fillers to treat the following areas

Using the line of Juvéderm® and Restylane® dermal fillers, Dr. Tariq Mirza and his trained staff at Ariba Medical Spa in Fremont, California, add smooth, natural-looking volume to your face in just one quick treatment. Schedule an appointment online or call our office to get started!

Pre-Treatment Instructions

  • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John's wort, Omega 3/fish oil supplements, ibuprofen, motrin, advil, aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
  • Schedule you dermal fillers and botox appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a vacation. Results from the Dermal Filler & Botox injections will take approximately 4 to 7 days to appear. Also, bruising and swelling may be apparent in that time period. Sculptra does take longer to see results, so plan accordingly.
  • Discontinue Retin-A 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.
  • Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sor or blemish on the area.
  • If you have a history of cold sores, pleas let us know.

Juvéderm® and Restylane® dermal fillers are made with a hyaluronic acid (HA) base. Injectable HA is a replica of the naturally occurring molecule found in the body. Best known for its incredible ability to carry 1,000 times its weight in water, HA provides deep hydration to skin tissues.

Dermal filler is a soft, gel-like substance that improves volume while deeply hydrating tissues. Your Ariba injector will strategically administer the dermal filler under the skin to achieve specific outcomes. Dermal filler results are semi-permanent, lasting approximately twelve months.

Your Ariba injector will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area before injection. The injections feel like a pinch and can cause discomfort, which dissipates quickly. After your treatment, you can anticipate swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the treatment site.
