Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a cosmetic treatment that your provider injects below or within the surface of your skin. These gel-like solutions smooth out lines and wrinkles, replace lost volume, and enhance your facial contours. Fillers commonly contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that your body produces less of as you age.

Apex Dermatology offers several fillers so you can get a customized treatment based on your needs. Hyaluronic fillers, like the Juvéderm® collection, have specific fillers for each area of your face, including lips, cheeks, and the areas around your nose and mouth. Volbella or Belotero Balance® is another hyaluronic acid filler that smoothes lines around your mouth or under the eyelids.

Additionally, Radiesse® is a different filler that contains calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) particles suspended in a smooth gel. CaHA is also a naturally occurring substance that may help stimulate natural collagen production in areas with deep lines and wrinkles.

What types of Juvéderm fillers are available?

Juvéderm makes different fillers for different areas of your face, including two different fillers for your lips. When you want to add fullness and plumpness to your lips, Juvéderm Ultra XC may be the ideal solution. Or, you may decide Juvéderm Volbella® XC is a more subtle way to add volume to your lips while smoothing out vertical lip lines that come with age.

For your sagging skin and lost volume, your provider at Apex Dermatology may recommend Juvéderm Voluma® XC or Restylane Lyft to restore volume, lift, and contour the cheek, chin, or jawline area. For reducing lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose, known as nasolabial folds or marionette’s, there’s Juvéderm XC, Juvederm Plus XC, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne. Finally, Juvéderm Vollure™ XC can add volume to the area around your mouth and nose for up to 18 months.

Your aesthetic specialist can help you decide which types of Juvéderm or Restylane helps you achieve your goals and customizes a treatment for your individual needs.

What does Belotero Balance do?

Belotero Balance works like other fillers, but it’s formulated for more subtle nasolabial folds and etched wrinkles. This injectable filler instantly fills in the skin to erase etched lines and wrinkles. Belotero Balance also works on smile lines and vertical lip lines.

Belotero Balance gives you a natural appearance that can last six months or longer.
