What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments designed to add volume and smooth out wrinkles and folds in the skin. These fillers are typically composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps retain moisture and provide structure. By replenishing lost hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers can restore volume and improve skin elasticity.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

  • Immediate Results: Dermal fillers provide instant improvements in facial volume and wrinkle reduction.
  • Non-Surgical: The procedure is minimally invasive, requiring no surgery or significant downtime.
  • Versatile: Fillers can be used to address various areas of the face, including lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and under-eye hollows.
  • Natural-Looking: Results are subtle and natural-looking, enhancing the patient’s features without looking overdone.
  • Long-Lasting: Depending on the type of filler used, results can last from six months to two years.

Common Areas Treated with Dermal Fillers

  • Lips: Enhance volume and definition, creating a fuller, more youthful appearance.
  • Cheeks: Restore lost volume and lift sagging skin to improve facial contours.
  • Nasolabial Folds: Smooth out deep lines running from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
  • Marionette Lines: Reduce lines running from the corners of the mouth to the chin.
  • Under-Eye Hollows: Address dark circles and hollows under the eyes for a refreshed look.
  • Jawline and Chin: Enhance definition and contour for a more balanced facial profile.

How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers are injected into specific areas of the face using a fine needle. The hyaluronic acid in the fillers attracts and retains water, adding volume and smoothing out wrinkles. The procedure is relatively quick, often taking less than 30 minutes, and discomfort is minimal. Topical anesthetics or numbing agents can be used to enhance patient comfort.

Types of Dermal Fillers Available

Dr. Jennifer Levine offers a variety of dermal fillers to address different aesthetic needs:

  • Juvederm: A popular hyaluronic acid filler with formulations like Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus for smoothing moderate to severe wrinkles and adding volume to the lips and cheeks.
  • Restylane: Another hyaluronic acid filler with several formulations for different facial concerns. Restylane-L is commonly used for lip enhancement, while Restylane Lyft is great for cheek augmentation and mid-face volume loss.
  • RHA Collection: Resilient hyaluronic acid fillers designed to adapt to facial dynamics, ideal for treating dynamic wrinkles and folds around the mouth and eyes.

Dermal Fillers vs. Biostimulatory Fillers

While both dermal and biostimulatory fillers are used to enhance facial aesthetics, they work in different ways. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, and RHA, provide immediate volume and wrinkle reduction by directly filling in areas of concern. In contrast, biostimulatory fillers, like Radiesse and Sculptra, stimulate the body’s natural collagen production to improve skin quality over time.

Complementary Treatments

Dermal fillers are often combined with other treatments to enhance overall facial rejuvenation:

  • Laser Skin Resurfacing: Improve skin texture and tone by targeting the outer layers, reducing fine lines, sun damage, and acne scars.
  • Botox / Wrinkle Relaxers: Relax the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, to complement the effects of dermal fillers.
  • Microneedling with PRP / PRFM: Stimulate collagen production and enhance healing and rejuvenation, improving skin texture, tone, and overall quality.
  • PDO Threads: Lift and tighten sagging skin using dissolvable threads, providing both lift and volume.
  • Emface: Uses synchronized radiofrequency and HIFES technologies to tighten and lift the skin while enhancing muscle tone.
  • Facelift: Combine with dermal fillers to address both deep tissue sagging and surface-level volume loss for comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
