Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are formulated from hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s naturally found in the collagen produced by your body. Collagen gives your face a plump, youthful appearance. As you age, your collagen levels decrease, and fine lines, wrinkles, and folds begin to appear.

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances which Dr. Helen Rastamloo and her team inject beneath the surface of your skin to smooth wrinkles, increase fullness, and correct contouring. There are many types of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, including different formulations.

Can dermal fillers improve the appearance of lines around my eyes and lips?

Plumping the area around your eyes and lips requires a dermal filler with very small particles. RestylaneⓇ and JUVÉDERM® both offer formulations suited for these treatment areas. Because the skin around your eyes and mouth constantly moves, it’s important to use a dermal filler that can smooth those lines while also maintaining a degree of elasticity.

Can dermal fillers restore lost volume in my cheeks?

A full, plump face is one of the most recognizable signs of youth and vitality. As you age, a portion of that fullness is lost. That can cause your skin to sag and gather near your jawline.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is formulated specifically for your cheek area. Injections are precisely placed where you’ve lost facial fullness. Because the product is so smooth and malleable, the result is better contouring and tighter skin, without the drastic or pulled-back look stereotypically associated with a facelift.

Can dermal fillers add volume to my lips?

Increased volume of your lips enhances the overall balance of your face. At Elation MedSpa & Laser Center, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, and RestylaneⓇ Silk are used to enhance lip fullness and correct lines in the skin around your mouth.

Lip enhancement takes a skilled hand. The Elation MedSpa & Laser Center team has the training and experience to know precisely how much filler to use and where to place the injections for the best results.

Can dermal fillers smooth my smile lines?

If you want to smooth the smile lines that run along the side of your nose to the corners of your mouth and increase fullness, Elation MedSpa & Laser Center offers the following options:

  • Restylane
  • Restylane-LⓇ
  • RestylaneⓇ Refyne
  • RestylaneⓇ Defyne

Dr. Rastamloo and her team can help you decide which product offers the best outcomes for your specific needs.
