Dermal Fillers & Lip Injections
Cosmetic Filler Treatments
As we age, the production of our skin’s natural support structures diminish. Over time, those structures such as collagen and hyaluronic acid begin to disappear, resulting in wrinkles. Despite claims by both popular and luxury brands, no wrinkle cream on the market can even come close to lifting, filling or plumping wrinkles the way an injectable dermal filler can.
Naturally derived or synthetic dermal fillers instantly fill in and plump frown lines, nasolabial folds, and lines around your eyes so that the depression, or wrinkle, disappears. Depending on the filler used and the variables of your own personal aging process, you can enjoy the time-erasing effects for as long as two years using face fillers, cheek fillers, wrinkle fillers, and under eye fillers. And if you’re looking for more than just “touching up” those small wrinkles and lines, ask your doctor about combining a dermal filler with a botulinum toxin A injectable, like Botox®, Dysport® or Xeomin® for truly dramatic results.

Juvederm® Dermal Filler
Juvederm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan — a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. The treatment takes only about 15 minutes and results are instant, and last up to a year. There is minimal recovery and no downtime. You can step into our office for dermal filler treatment during your lunch break and go right back to work.
Restylane® Dermal Filler
This is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. It is composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the human body and is fully biocompatible. In fact, Restylane® maintains its shape using the patient’s body’s own moisture. As hyaluronan gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronan.
Belotero Balance® Dermal Filler
With Belotero Balance®, you can replace lost hyaluronic acid caused by the natural aging process. Once injected, it instantly fills in the skin and smoothes out wrinkles on your face. While Belotero Balance® is made of the same material (HA) as some other dermal fillers, it has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds, as well as more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line) using lip injections and lip fillers.
In a clinical study, many patients saw results that lasted about six months or more. Treatment is a safe, simple 30-minute procedure performed in our office at Greater Miami Skin and Laser Center.
Radiesse® Dermal Filler
This is the only filler that can do both: immediately replenish lost volume and stimulate the production of your own natural collagen by acting as a scaffold under the skin to provide lift and stimulation. Many patients claim that they can see folds and wrinkles vanish after just one treatment, and these amazing results can last up to one year.
Sculptra® Dermal Filler
Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. Sculptra® Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles and replaced lost collagen to provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last more than two years. This cosmetic filler works in a series of treatments over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person.
Juvederm Voluma™ Dermal Filler
Juvederm Voluma™ XC injectable gel is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift. After 24 hours of treatment with Juvederm Voluma™ XC, you should be able to resume your normal activities. Side effects are moderate and generally last two to four weeks.
