Are Dermal Fillers Right for You?

If you’re looking to temporarily replenish volume loss or add a touch of fullness to specific areas of your face, dermal fillers are a fantastic option. As you age, your skin experiences a natural loss of volume, primarily due to age-related structural rearrangements and collagen loss. Fine lines and wrinkles also make an appearance as early as your 20s. Fortunately, minimally invasive dermal fillers quickly and safely add volume to the face, giving the appearance of full, smooth, youthful skin.

At Derma Dolce, we only use FDA-approved, hyaluronic acid-based gel fillers by Juvederm. Because the body naturally produces hyaluronic acid to help the skin retain moisture and fullness, Juvederm fillers are highly effective. We’ve chosen to use these products exclusively, as they are widely considered the most results-based and safest of all fillers. In addition to the Juvederm collections of fillers, we also offer Kybella to reduce excess tissue beneath the chin. Contact our team to learn more.

Which Filler is Best for You?

Each product in our collection of dermal fillers is specifically designed to add volume to different target areas of the face. Depending on your unique protocol, dermal filler costs can vary; however, at Derma Dolce, we strive to provide top-notch treatments at a cost that’s accessible to everyone. Whether you’re looking to add volume, enhance your lips, or smooth out creases, our specialists will develop a treatment protocol that fits your budget and unique aesthetic goals.


Over time, fat distribution beneath the cheeks changes, giving the appearance of a hollow, sunken face. Voluma is designed specifically to correct age-related volume loss throughout the cheek area to give a full, smooth appearance. When Voluma is injected deep under the skin, it works to lift, contour, and define the cheeks, cheekbones, and jawline. Following treatment with Voluma, many patients find they appear up to five years younger, and maintain their results for up to two years.


As you age, lines and wrinkles are inevitable. As your skin loses elasticity, it no longer remains firm and taught, even if you practice proper skin care. Vollure is the first FDA-approved dermal filler designed to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and smile lines (nasolabial folds).

This next-generation, hyaluronic acid-based filler utilizes Vycross technology, blending varying molecular weights of HA to deliver a long-lasting, firm, yet pliable gel that allows for facial movements and expressions. Patients often see instant results with Vollure treatments and continued improvements over a three to six month period. Results last up to 18 months.


Volbella works to add subtle volume to the lips while gently smoothing fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. With age, your lips begin to thin as your body’s production of hyaluronic acid declines. And if you were dealt the genetic thin-lip card, you may even notice this phenomenon as early as your 20s. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers work by attracting and retaining water within the skin, giving the appearance, of full, defined lips. Results can last up to one year.


Kybella is the first treatment of its kind, designed to specifically target extra tissue beneath the chin. Extra adipose tissue beneath the chin can not only make you look heavier than you are, but can also add years to your face. Kybella utilizes a naturally-occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid, which works to break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected beneath the chin, Kybella dissolves excess fat, reducing fullness in the area and adding definition to your profile.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

During our younger years, fat beneath the skin is evenly distributed, smoothing and plumping the forehead, cheeks, temples, and the areas around the mouth and eyes. As we get older, however, that fat distribution changes, giving the appearance of loose, sagging skin. Our lips can also become thinner as a result of diminishing collagen and hyaluronic acid production. But with dermal fillers, just a few minutes is all it takes to see dramatic results. And with our highly trained aesthetic specialists, there’s no need to worry about looking “overdone” or unnatural.

What You Can Expect With Dermal Fillers

Most patients experience immediate results with Juvederm dermal fillers and see continued improvement over a two-week period. You should expect slight swelling after the procedure, as well as slight discomfort for a short period. Juvederm contains the local anesthetic, Lidocaine to help alleviate discomfort during the injection process.

Following the procedure, we recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and exposure to excessive heat or sun for at least 24 hours. Results from dermal fillers are temporary, requiring repeated treatments to maintain your desired look. Most dermal fillers last anywhere from 12-24 months.

Who is a Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Almost anyone looking to subtly enhance certain areas of the face is a good candidate for dermal fillers. Similarly, those with moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles can also benefit greatly from this minimally invasive treatment. Dermal fillers are safe for all ages and skin types, but those with a history of severe allergic reactions should avoid these treatments. If you are allergic to lidocaine, you should not receive treatment with Juvederm dermal fillers.

Our highly trained clinical aestheticians can give you the beautiful definition and smooth, timeless skin you’ve always wanted.
