What are dermal fillers?

 

Dermal fillers are used to fill skin that has lost tissue volume, improving the shape and contour of the face and facial structures.

Brands of dermal fillers include:

  • Juvéderm®

  • Voluma®

  • Volbella®

  • Vollure™

Our providers will conduct a thorough consultation to help you decide which filler best suits your needs.  Fillers can last 6-18 months and will depend on the filler selected and targeted area.

Common areas where filler is used are:

  • Nasal labial folds — the lines from the corners of your nose to the corners of your mouth

  • Marionette lines — lines from the corners of your mouth that run toward your chin

  • Lips

  • Facial wrinkles or creases

  • Vertical lip lines

  • Corners of the mouth

The results will be immediately ​noticeable after the procedure.  Swelling is a common occurrence after filler application.
