Which Dermal Filler is Right For Me?

Maybe you always wanted softer, fuller lips. Perhaps you want to plump and smooth deep lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers enhance volume and lift wrinkles from underneath. Made of bio-safe materials that can stay in the body for months, dermal fillers offer a convenient way to achieve a more youthful look without recovery or invasive procedures. 

What are Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to add volume or soften lines and wrinkles. They come in many materials, although the most popular dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid. You may have dermal fillers to provide shaping, contouring, and line-smoothing or to add volume to areas like the lips and cheeks. Fillers suitable for one place may not work well for others, so we offer a range of fillers to meet your needs.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers work in several ways depending on the type of dermal filler. We offer a few brands of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. These safe, effective fillers come in various formulas to address different concerns. Some dermal fillers stimulate collagen production, which takes weeks to months, while hyaluronic acid fillers provide immediate results. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin, where it attracts and binds moisture to maintain hydration and youthful plumpness. 

Which Dermal Filler is Right For Me?

We offer hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Juvederm, Belotero® and Restylane®. The latter is a family of fillers working on different face areas. All work similarly, so we can choose any combination that we feel will work best for you. 

Restylane® Family of Fillers

Members of the Restylane® family can be used for hollow areas under the eyes, defining and firming the jaws, restoring volume and fullness to the cheeks, and plumping the lips. They also excel at treating lines and wrinkles around the mouth and in other areas. Formulas like Restylane® may contain lidocaine, an injectable numbing agent, to make each injection more comfortable. 


Belotero® is often the preferred filler for deep wrinkles and creases. It has a soft gel formula that maintains a natural appearance while holding up to the stresses of these difficult locations. It works well on nasolabial wrinkles, marionette lines, and other deep, hard-to-treat areas. 

Should I Have a Facelift or Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers can do a remarkable job of smoothing and softening lines and wrinkles. However, it can only do so much to address skin laxity, sagging, or drooping. If you have deep lines and wrinkles caused by loose skin, dermal fillers may not provide the desired results. A facelift can tighten the skin and underlying structures. It also requires surgery and several weeks of recovery. Dermal fillers take only a few minutes to inject and usually require no downtime, but results are temporary.

Is There Any Downtime With Dermal Fillers?

Most people do not require any downtime after dermal fillers. You can typically return to work after your injections. Some may notice minor bruising, swelling, or redness around the injection area. This usually fades within a few days. Reactions to hyaluronic acid are uncommon and typically mild. Unlike many anti-aging treatments, you can have dermal fillers on your lunch break and immediately return to your usual activities. 

What Results Will I See With Dermal Fillers?

Results from hyaluronic acid fillers become visible immediately. You will see increased volume over the next few days as the hyaluronic acid attracts more skin-plumping moisture. Your results can last from six to twelve months or even longer. Fillers in highly mobile areas like the lips may not last as long as more resilient fillers that are made for shaping the cheeks. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

We offer hyaluronic acid dermal fillers because they work so well, but also because they are safe for almost everyone. Good candidates for dermal fillers want to add volume or smooth lines and wrinkles. If you have had a reaction to this type of filler in the past, you might not be a good candidate. We do not recommend dermal fillers for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
