Dermal Filler Options
With so many fillers on the market today, you may be wondering how to decide which one is right for you. We offer a hand-selected lineup of fillers, each with particular benefits for certain aesthetic needs and goals.
For many of our patients, they are happy with the results of a particular filler and choose to stick with that filler for their ongoing injections. Others are eager to try newer options, and still others are fine leaving the decision entirely to our medical expertise.
Let’s take a closer look at the injectable dermal fillers offered at our office in Plymouth:
Juvéderm® – A smooth gel filler designed to smooth away wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The Juvéderm family of products is available in a variety of formulations depending on the area of the face being treated. Voluma is formulated to maximize volume increase and can be a great choice for the mid-face/cheeks. Juvéderm Volbella is designed specifically for the lips and undereyes.
Restylane®– Restylane fills fine lines and wrinkles in the face, around the nose and mouth, and can even add volume and contouring to the lips. Results in lips last about 6 months, and skin results last between 6 and 12 months. Like all fillers, Restylane® treatments can be repeated as needed. Restylane and Juvéderm are close competitors and often the decision on which to use comes down to patient preference.
Perlane® – Adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct wrinkles and lines, especially in the face. Compared to Restylane, Perlane is designed to correct more severe wrinkling and deep lines, and can be an excellent choice for people with thicker skin, sun damage, and more.
Radiesse® – Replenishes the lost volume in the skin, filling wrinkles and lines. Radiesse is used primarily in the face. It is a close competitor to Restylane and Juvéderm.
Fat Grafting/Transfer – Fat removed during a patient’s liposuction is refined and then injected as a filler to reduce wrinkles and/or add volume. The benefit of using your own fat cells is that this can achieve longer-lasting volume enhancement and wrinkle reduction. Many of the fat cells that are injected will die off and be reabsorbed by your body, but the ones that remain can continue to provide a more youthful look.

Dermal filler treatments are an investment in your appearance. When it comes to the overall cost of dermal filler treatments, it depends on the amount of filler syringes needed to achieve your desired results. In addition, the more experienced the surgeon is with the use of dermal fillers, as well as their ability to understand facial contours can increase the overall price.
How do I find the best cosmetic surgeon for dermal fillers near me?
While the use of dermal fillers may seem like a simple procedure, the truth is that optimal dermal filler treatment requires specialized training and a deep understanding of facial anatomy. When considering a dermal filler provider, you want to find someone with extensive experience that can provide you with before and after photos, allowing you to see the results and get a clear picture of what you can expect from your treatment.
Do dermal filler treatments hurt?
While topical anesthetics are often applied before dermal filler injections, you may still experience minor discomfort, such as with a vaccine or a blood draw. Once the filler is injected into the skin, it can cause stretching, which may feel uncomfortable. This discomfort will diminish with time.
How long do dermal filler treatments take?
Dermal filler treatments are typically a quick in-office procedure that lasts less than an hour, meaning you can schedule a quick lunchtime appointment and be back to your regular daily routine within an hour.
Do dermal fillers require any downtime?
Dermal fillers do not require any downtime and most people are able to resume normal activities immediately after your treatments.
How long do dermal filler results last?
How long your results will last depend on the type of dermal filler used and the location of your injections. Most dermal filler results will last for several months to over a year or more.
Are there any risks involved with dermal fillers?
Risks or complications with dermal fillers are uncommon but they can still happen. Specific risks depend on the type of dermal filler used, as well as the location of your injections. Possible dermal filler complications can include:
Skin irritation or rash
Injection site infection
Bruising and/or bleeding
Lumps or acne-like skin eruptions
