What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected into target areas to smooth out wrinkles, plump up the skin, or add volume. Filler injections are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures, as patients enjoy effective results with many added benefits.
Dermal fillers can:
- Fill in lines and creases
- Restore or add volume to facial features
- Create more attractive facial contours
- Reduce the appearance of scars, including acne scars
- Provide a more even-looking skin texture
Depending on your needs and desired outcome, we’ll create a dermal filler treatment plan to have you loving the skin you’re in.
Areas to Treat with Fillers
Fillers can be injected into multiple areas to deliver more impressive results. Some of the areas we can target include:
- Forehead area
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Lines around the lips
Whether you need to fill, plump, or smooth, we can use fillers strategically to give you a stunning outcome.
How Do Fillers Work?
Fillers generally include substances similar to those naturally found in the body, including hyaluronic acid and collagen. They are injected through a thin needle into the middle layer of skin, plumping up the area to create the preferred look.
You can expect to enjoy the results of filler injections for several months before your body begins to break down the product naturally. If you enjoy your new look, you can continue getting filler injections regularly to maintain your results.
Dermal Fillers We Offer
Fillers are not all one-size-fits-all treatments. That’s why we offer both Juvéderm and Bellafill fillers.
Juvéderm is one of the most popular brands of fillers currently on the market. These products are primarily made out of hyaluronic acid, a substance the body produces that supports skin hydration and smoothness.
The Juvéderm collection includes multiple fillers that each target specific concerns. We often recommend these fillers to patients who wish to improve facial smoothness, volume, and contours.
Bellafill is a unique type of filler with distinct benefits. These injections contain tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) beads that contribute to filling and plumping the skin, but the injectable also includes collagen.
Collagen is a critical protein that strengthens, firms, and smooths the skin. It is primarily responsible for keeping the skin looking healthy and youthful and preventing wrinkles and sagging. As you age, collagen production slows, resulting in lines, creases, and dull-looking skin.
Bellafill not only fills in treatment areas but also adds collagen to the area. The injections prompt the body to produce more collagen to give patients longer-lasting results.

- Quick and easy treatment
- Non-surgical option
- Natural-looking, long-lasting results

What to Expect During Your Filler Appointment
When you arrive on the day of your appointment, we’ll start by discussing your skin concerns and desired results. We can then use this information to tailor our approach and create your treatment plan.
For your comfort, we might apply a numbing cream to the treatment areas. Once the skin is sufficiently numbed, we can begin your filler treatment.
During your treatment, we’ll slowly and carefully inject the filler into the target areas to give you the best results. Most fillers contain lidocaine, which helps make treatment even more comfortable.
After we’ve completed the injections, we will provide some aftercare instructions and send you on your way.
Frequently Asked Questions About Fillers
Below, we’ve answered some of the questions our patients most commonly ask about injectable fillers and expectations for treatment.
Is There Downtime After Getting Fillers?
No, fillers don’t typically require any downtime. We generally instruct patients to avoid exercise or strenuous activity for 24 to 48 hours to help the product settle in nicely and begin the healing process.
When Will I See Results from Fillers?
You should see results soon after your filler appointment. Once we’ve completed your treatment, you’ll notice lines filled in, fuller facial features, and more facial volume. However, you must give the product some time to settle in. Final results can be expected about a week or so after your appointment.
How Long Do Fillers Last?
How long your fillers will last depends on which filler was used, where the filler was placed, and how your body reacts to the product. Everyone metabolizes the filler product differently and at different rates.
Filler products can last anywhere from 9 to 24 months. Some fillers, like Bellafill, are designed to last even longer, about two to five years.
How Often Can I Get Fillers?
When you notice a loss of volume in the treatment areas or your facial features return to their pre-treatment appearance, you can schedule an appointment for a touch-up.
