Dermal Fillers Q&A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that plump, hydrate, and rejuvenate your appearance to restore facial volume, youthfulness, and facial harmony. 

At Advantage Dermatology, a combination of dermal filler treatments can give you the effects of a facelift without surgery, incisions, or downtime. 

As you get older, your body produces less collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These compounds provide your skin with youthful strength, elasticity, and hydration. Gravity combined with a reduction in these skin-strengthening compounds means you have skin that is pulled downward, accentuating nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jowls, and creases around your mouth. 

Dermal fillers can replenish some of these lost compounds to fill in lines and wrinkles, especially in the mid and low face. They also improve your look by:

  • Lifting sunken cheeks
  • Augmenting your lips
  • Filling in dark or puffy under-eye hollows
  • Erasing acne scars

You receive a customized plan for facial rejuvenation to meet your specific needs and goals. Dr. Perez uses his artistic eye and dermal fillers to create subtle changes that refresh your look.

What are the types of dermal fillers offered?

Dr. Perez provides a number of different fillers, including these from Juvéderm®:

Juvéderm Ultra XC 

Juvéderm Ultra can reduce the look of superficial lines on your face, around your eyes, lips, and cheeks. The results last 6-9 months.

Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC

Ultra Plus corrects deep lines and folds, fills in nasolabial folds, plumps your cheeks, and reduces the look of marionette lines. The results last 9-12 months.

Juvéderm Voluma™ XC

Voluma corrects mid-face volume loss and fills in hollow temples. You get a more rounded and lifted cheek area to exude youthfulness. Results last six months or longer.

All of the Juvéderm products contain synthetic hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that your body already produces, to smooth, plump, and hydrate your skin. All contain lidocaine to reduce discomfort during treatment. You can get retreatments to maintain your look.

Can dermal fillers be combined with neuromodulators like Botox?

Neuromodulators, like Botox® and Jeuveau®, are purified proteins that, when injected, block nerve impulses to muscles in your face that create lines and wrinkles when you make expressions. 

Neuromodulator treatments make moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines appear smoother and more relaxed. As a result, you look refreshed and renewed. Results last 3-4 months, after which you can get retreatments to maintain your look. 

Dr. Perez artfully combines dermal fillers with Botox and/or Jeuveau injections to give you a comprehensively more youthful look.
