Restore facial volume with injectable fillers in Kirkland, WA
Time is an insidious thief, stealing away facial volume year after year. First you notice just a few fine lines on your face, then wrinkles and folds make an appearance. Maybe you aren’t ready for surgery, but you certainly aren’t ready to see an aged face in the mirror. What can you do? Talk to Dr. Mark Tseng about injectable fillers, which are available at his Auburn and Kirkland, WA offices.
The benefits of dermal filler treatment
Injectables are sometimes erroneously described as a “liquid facelift” treatment. In truth, they do not accomplish the same results as surgery, and they are not designed to. Cosmetic surgery involves removal of excess skin and fat, tightening muscles, and repositioning tissue. Dermal fillers have one very specific purpose, which is to add temporary volume. This is a great option for mature adults who want to address the early signs of aging, but do not yet need surgery.
Dermal fillers may be used to:
- Add fullness to the lips
- Reduce the appearance of depressed scars
- Raise shallow facial contours
- Plump up thin or hollow cheeks
- Improve fine lines around the eyes
- Lessen or erase facial lines and wrinkles
- Restore youthful fullness and plumpness to facial features
About the procedure
One of the great benefits of dermal fillers is the minimally invasive nature of the procedure. It typically takes less than an hour with no downtime. The key to natural-looking results is a deep understanding of facial anatomy. We begin with a comprehensive aesthetic evaluation in order to choose the best type of filler, optimal injection sites, and dosage amounts. Once this has been determined, the actual procedure consists of a few gentle injections using a very fine needle.
Types of dermal fillers
We use several different fillers, each of which has unique benefits. The best choice for the most natural looking, longest lasting dermal filler will depend on the treatment area and degree of correction that is needed. Dr. Tseng may recommend one or more of the following:
- Juvéderm XC – This hyaluronic acid-based gel treats moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth area. It is a great smile line filler.
- Juvéderm Voluma XC – A unique formula designed specifically for deep injections to restore volume in the cheek area.
- Radiesse Volumizing Filler – Formulated with microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, this unique filler instantly volumizes while supporting collagen remodeling for lasting results.
- Restylane – Lips are especially delicate, requiring an ultra-smooth filler for natural results. Restylane delivers beautiful, natural results.
- Sculptra Aesthetic – Formulated with poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra stimulates collagen formation for natural, gradual, long lasting facial volume.
Before today gets away from me in these very chaotic times I thought I’d let you know that I am truly thankful that Graham had suggested that I meet with you before making any plans for surgery on my hands.
I greatly appreciate the care you’ve given me, the extraordinary skills you have and the sincere concern you show for me as a person not just “an appointment” on your busy calendar. Again, I am so thankful that Graham directed me to you!
Thanks for all you do and the personal concern you show!
Dr. Tseng is absolutely amazing. He helped me when I was badly burned in a firework accident a few years back. Half of my face was burned off and I had 3rd and 2nd degree burns on my hand, my wrist, and up my arm and my neck. If it wasn’t for him I don’t think things would have turned out as well as they did. I barely have any scars now which is shocking considering what damage was done initially. He was an excellent provider, has seriously remarkable skills and I would highly recommend him to anyone that I care about.
Thanks again Dr. Tseng!!

I wouldn’t let anyone else do my surgery, only Dr Tseng.
I suffered from carpel tunnel syndrome and tendinitis in my right hand. Meeting and working with Dr. Tseng has been the best experience ever. He is patient, kind, pays attention to detail, explains the process to you thoroughly and in a language that you understand. If you’re looking for a medical professional and has an excellent bedside manner and that does quality work this is who you want to get connected with. Although I am two weeks post-op, I can say that this is the best experience I’ve ever had .
I had a pinched nerve, with problems with my insurance. The lady at the front desk and this doctor went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of as fast as possible to save the feeling in my fingers and hand. Surgery went great, Its been about 8/9 months and I have probably regained 95% of my feeling. I never write reviews. But this doctor and his very nice front desk lady are amazing.
The best at what he does. Friendly, includes you everything that has to be done. Answer’s all your questions. Dr Mark is the best
