Dermal Fillers

Are you’re unhappy with the signs of aging on your face? If so, dermal fillers may be the answer. They work to lessen lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume where it’s needed most.

Dermal fillers

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that restore lost volume, fill wrinkles, smooth lines, and enhance facial shape. They work to create a smoother appearance and reduce the signs of aging.

Minimize the signs of aging

As we age, our bodies change, wrinkles appear, and the subcutaneous fat that supports our skin is gradually lost. This is completely normal and a part of aging, but that does not mean that we can’t fight it. Although most fillers are temporary (they eventually get absorbed by the body) they’re also a great solution to increase lost volume. Each type of dermal filler is different in terms of longevity and texture. However, they all serve the same purpose – achieve a naturally younger look.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Belotero Balance are invaluable in restoring your skin’s youthful glow. They work to not only smooth away unwanted wrinkles, but can also help to replenish lost facial volume, thinning lips and sunken cheeks. Additionally, dermal fillers can help to contour the lower face, tightening the jowls and slimming the upper neck.


Juvederm is used to help add volume to volume-deficient areas of the face such as the lips, under the eyes, in the cheeks, jawline, or around the nose.

Belotero Balance®

Belotero Balance erases wrinkles, lines and creases around the mouth and nose. It looks completely natural and allows normal facial movement and expressions.

Cost of treatment

Dermal fillers are priced per syringe and not per units, as is the case with neuromodulators. The actual number of syringes required varies depending on the treatment area and the desired outcome.
