Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular aesthetic remedy to smooth fine lines and deep wrinkles, restore lost volume, and improve facial symmetry. These temporary, gel-like substances deliver a natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance when injected beneath the skin’s surface. Women and men alike can bring in the benefits of dermal fillers by plumping the lips, raising the cheekbones, improving the balance of the nose, or creating a more defined jawline.

The expert practitioners at Spa26 provide natural results and holistic correction of facial concerns. Our specialists will provide guidance in choosing the proper filler and recommend combination therapies to achieve your cosmetic goals.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that restore lost volume, smooth wrinkles, and improve facial contours without surgical intervention or downtime. An experienced practitioner strategically injects the chosen filler into the areas of concern to produce subtle, natural-looking results.

Advancements in aesthetic medicine delivered seemingly countless variations of dermal fillers. These injectable substances can provide either temporary or permanent results based on the elements they contain. The categories of dermal fillers include:

    • Hyaluronic Acid (HA): HA is naturally evident within each individual’s skin. These soft fillers help keep the skin plump and hydrated for 6-12 months before the body naturally metabolizes them. Popular HA fillers include Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero Balance, Revanesse Versa, and the RHA collection.
    • Poly-L-lactic Acid: This biodegradable, biocompatible synthetic substance helps to smooth wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating natural collagen production in the skin. These “collagen stimulators” are indicated for deeper facial wrinkles and deliver results that last more than two years. FDA-approved Poly-L-lactic Acid fillers include Sculptra Aesthetic. 
    • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA): These thicker fillers contain microscopic calcium particles to smooth deeper lines and wrinkles and stimulate natural collagen production. Results typically last 12 months. Radiesse is a standard FDA-approved CaHa filler.
    • Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA): These fillers contain tiny microspheres of PMMA that, once injected, remain beneath the skin indefinitely to assist with retaining structure and enhancing firmness. These fillers also contain collagen to provide continued support to the skin. FDA-approved PMMA fillers include Bellafill.
    • Renuva: This injectable adipose allograft matrix contains growth factors, collagen, and proteins. It is a filler alternative that restores volume to the face and neck, smooths wrinkles, and improves skin tone and texture, with results lasting 5-10 years. Effects develop gradually over three months as the injections provide a guide for the body to create natural volume through a process known as remodeling.
