What is a Dermal Filler?

Dermal fillers are a cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a gel-like substance mostly composed of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance within your body. The filler is injected under the skin to restore volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Each dermal filler has unique advantages and offers subtle differences in feeling, thickness, and use. As a result, choosing the best filler for you will depend on your individual anatomy and desired treatment area.

  • Hyaluronic acid fillers — The most commonly used fillers with name brands such as Juvederm, Restylane, Versa, Vollure, Volbella, Voluma, and many others.
  • Radiesse — Commonly used to augment cheekbones and jawlines, Radiesse is made of calcium-based microspheres that help to stimulate collagen production.
  • Sculptra — Made of poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra addresses facial volume loss caused by significant weight loss or aging and boasts long-lasting results of two to three years.

During your consultation, your doctor will evaluate your facial concerns and discuss your options. Your treatment plan includes how much filler is needed to reach your desired result and the cost of your procedure.
