What are dermal fillers?

Youthful boost to your look.

Age, lifestyle, and environmental factors change the skin over time. Dermal fillers can help you battle some of these changes. Dermal fillers are natural or synthetic fluid materials that are injected into the skin to plump and smooth the area of injection. It can be used to:

  • Create volume in hollow areas of the face or lips
  • Fill in, lift, and smooth lines and wrinkles of the face
  • Enhance facial balance
  • Improve the smoothness and elasticity appearance for a radiant skin
  • Increase volume at the back of the hand

Dermal fillers can be used to treat a specific area, but the treatment approach always considers the full face for more natural results.

How it works

Balanced and natural.

The fillers act as a support layer beneath the skin. Each brand has a range of fillers specific for the areas of treatment.

Restylane® has a safety profile established for over 20 years and 30 million treatments. It is the world’s first stabilized non-animal hyaluronic acid filler with patented technology. They possess a portfolio of dermal fillers with a broad range of hyaluronic acid gels. They can restore a youthful appearance by filling in lines and wrinkles. It can also create volume and improve the overall smoothness and elasticity of your skin.

Juvederm®

Juvederm® uses a unique VYCROSS® technology that gives your skin a smooth, natural- looking appearance. Juvederm® also contains lidocaine, a pain reliever that will help you be more comfortable during and after the treatment. Each Juvederm® product serves a unique purpose. It can be used to smooth wrinkles, restore volume for a lifting effect, or redefine the lips. It blends with the tissue under the skin to keep your look more natural.

Radiesse®

Radiesse® dermal fillers are FDA-approved to smoothen moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles. It is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) suspended in a gel. It is mixed with lidocaine to reduce pain related to the injection. Radiesse® provides immediate volume after the injection. The long-term results are due to the stimulation of collagen production. These results last up to a year or more. The CaHA gets absorbed by the body over time.

Belotero® offers hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid has an innate ability to hold onto water. As a dermal filler, this can help maintain the elasticity, smoothness and volume of skin. Belotero® integrates evenly for a refreshed and natural look. Each of the Belotero® products offers different levels of lifting. This will allow for treatment customization based on your needs, whether your goal is to smooth out fine lines or restore elasticity to large areas of the skin. Most formulas are available with lidocaine to bring you additional comfort during and after the procedure.
