Dermal fillers have become popular among patients looking for injectables to improve their appearance
by enhancing facial features or restoring loss volume to different areas. If you have never undergone
treatment with a dermal filler before, it may be overwhelming to try to determine which one is right for you.
However, when you trust an experienced injector to administer your treatment, you’ll achieve your desired
results without any guesswork and enjoy long-lasting results.

Exploring the Different Types of Dermal Fillers in West Melbourne and Their Uses

Fillers are cosmetic injectables that restore lost volume to different areas of the face to reverse the aging
process and also enhance facial features. There are several different types of fillers, and we only use the
most effective at our West Melbourne and Indian Harbor Beach locations. Our goal is to design a
customized treatment plan for each patient with one or more filters to help each safely address aging-
related or cosmetic concerns.

Hyaluronic Acid-Based Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers use different hyaluronic acid compounds to plump the dermal tissue and
encourage long-term collagen production. These fillers deliver an immediate volumizing effect upon
injection into the desired treatment area. After treatment, the skin will appear smoother and younger, and
any fine lines and wrinkles will disappear.

These fillers can augment the lips, enhance facial features, smooth lines and wrinkles around the mouth
that have formed due to volume loss, and help patients naturally achieve their desired appearance while
also delivering immediate and long-lasting results. The HA particles in these fillers are very similar to what
the body produces naturally, so they are well received by the body after the treatment.

The JUVÉDERM Collection

The JUVÉDERM Collections is a popular line of dermal fillers made by the company that created BOTOX.
These fillers target aging and cosmetic concerns in multiple facial areas. We design treatment plans with
the JUVÉDERM fillers to augment the cheeks, correct cheek flattening as a result of age-related midfacial
volume loss, and smooth nasolabial folds, marionette lines around the mouth, and wrinkles above the lip
(also known as perioral lines).

We also use fillers to augment the lips, chin, and smooth lines around the nose and mouth. We offer the
following dermal fillers from the JUVÉDERM collection:

The Restylane Collection

The Restylane Collection is another popular line of fillers that use hyaluronic acid particles in a gel
formula to add volume to different facial areas. These versatile fillers will restore lost facial volume,
smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and even reverse the signs of aging on hands. We use them to correct sunken cheeks, thinning lips, lines and wrinkles, and more. We offer the following fillers from the
Restylane Collection:
• Restylane-L
• Restylane Lyft
• Restylane Silk
• Restylane Kysse
• Restylane Refyne
• Restylane Defyne

Collagen-Stimulating Fillers

Collagen-stimulating fillers are different from hyaluronic acid-based fillers because they contain an active
ingredient that stimulates natural collagen production. The body responds to the active ingredient once it
enters the tissue and produces more collagen and elastin, a process that naturally results in smoother,
firmer, and fuller skin.

These fillers provide an effective solution for patients who want to combat aging naturally and reverse
age-related volume loss while increasing natural skin volume to achieve their ideal appearance.


Sculptra is a collagen-stimulating filler with an active ingredient called poly-L-lactic acid that restores
volume in facial areas and smooths lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic
material that has been safely used in the medical world since the 1970s. Upon injection into the middle
and lower half of the face, this active ingredient stimulates natural collagen production to promote skin
health and restore a youthful appearance.

It lifts and supports the skin, fills in wrinkles and folds, and can effectively treat smile lines, hollow areas,
and facial wrinkles and folds on the lower and middle half of the face. We are even able to use it to
improve the appearance of scars, and it also has off-label uses, including adding natural volume to the


RADIESSE is another collagen-stimulating dermal filler that uses an active ingredient called CaHA to
reverse volume loss and smooth lines and wrinkles. After treatment, the material in the dermal filler
integrates into the tissue to trigger collagen production. The CaHA is held in a gel matrix that adds natural
volume to the injection site to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nose, chin,
and jaw.

We also use RADIESSE to restore volume to the backs of the hands to hide bones, tendons, and veins
and promote a youthful appearance. This injectable not only reverses aging but also creates a structural
support system on which the body produces new collagen and elastin. This new and strong network lifts
and strengthens the skin, and as the body breaks down and removes the filler from the system, collagen
will replace it, resulting in younger-looking skin.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

Fillers have been studied and proven to be effective treatment options for patients in good health with
healthy skin that’s free of any infection in the planned treatment area. When you trust the injectors at our
Indian Harbor Beach and West Melbourne locations to administer your dermal fillers, you’ll experience a comfortable, safe, and effective treatment that helps you achieve your ideal appearance while still
ensuring that you look like yourself, not a different person.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for dermal fillers are patients who want a long-lasting solution to enhance their
features or reverse aging-related volume loss. These fillers will last six months to two years, depending
on the formula we use, the injection site, the mobility of the treatment area, and how quickly your body
metabolizes the product. Ideal candidates should also have realistic expectations about the treatment and
the outcome.

Additionally, patients should not have any allergies to any of the ingredients in their chosen filler. Patients
must schedule follow-up treatments to maintain their results long-term since these fillers only provide a
temporary solution for aging-related and cosmetic concerns. An initial consultation is the best way to
confirm whether one or more of these fillers is right for you. We’ll also make other treatment
recommendations at this time so you achieve the most comprehensive results.
