What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a cornerstone in aesthetic medicine, offering a non-surgical solution to restore volume and smoothness to the skin. Containing biocompatible materials, injectable fillers fill wrinkles, add volume and hydration to soft tissues, and can boost your own natural collagen over time.

Dermal Fillers We Provide

Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers are renowned for their hydrating properties, as hyaluronic acid naturally attracts water molecules, promoting a plump and hydrated appearance. These fillers are ideal for smoothing wrinkles, enhancing lip  volume, and restoring facial fullness with natural-looking results. They are also reversible, offering peace of mind for those new to dermal fillers.


Sculptra stands out for its unique ability to stimulate collagen production, an essential protein in maintaining skin elasticity and strength. Rather than just filling in lines, Sculptra gradually restores facial volume and smooths wrinkles by rejuvenating the skin’s inner structure. This treatment is perfect for those seeking long-lasting, natural enhancement.

Sculptra is a biostimulator and works differently from our hyaluronic acid dermal fillers because it contains an active ingredient called poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates your body to produce new collagen at the injection sites. Sculptra is a natural approach for a full facial rejuvenation plan targeted at treating volume loss in the temples, mid face, and lower face. Sculptra’s collagen stimulation action restores volume, tightens tissues, and rebalances facial contours in a way no other product can. As a favorite anti-aging product among our clients, Sculptra creates a face-lift effect by causing your skin to produce more of its own collagen, and results provide 25+ months of longevity.


Radiesse is recognized for its dual-action benefits. Not only does it provide immediate volume correction, but it also encourages natural collagen production for long-term improvement. Composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, Radiesse is particularly effective for contouring and defining areas such as the cheeks and jawline while smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.

A newer and highly effective use for Radiesse is the technique of hypderdilution. When diluted and injected superficially, Radiesse acts as a collagen stimulating agent. The Hyperdilute Radiesse technique combines the filler with saline and lidocaine, thinning the consistency and increasing the volume of product. The Hyperdilute Radiesse is then injected into the desired superficial areas through a thin cannula. Common treatment areas include the cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, back of hands, and the neck. This treatment is a favorable alternative to surgical intervention such as a face lift or neck lift.

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a safe, effective, and natural alternative to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. A sample of blood is taken and the nutrient rich plasma is separated and injected into certain facial areas to improve skin texture and quality. This can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The most common injection areas include tear troughs, lower face, and fine lines around the mouth. The PRF process results in a different preparation than PRP, resulting in a higher concentration of platelets and a stronger release of growth factors. PRF contains fibrin, a protein that helps support tissue repair and regeneration. PRF injections are typically used to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin and work to stimulate your body’s production of collagen.
