They’re a visible sign of the aging process that’s happening underneath the skin. And they can be reversed without the cost and risks associated with a facelift.

Facial Fillers FAQs
A dermal filler relies on an injection of a gel-like substance into the soft tissue under the skin. As a result, it works to literally fill in areas of volume loss, which have caused wrinkles, fine lines, creases, folds, sagging skin and/or sunken hollows on the face. By providing replenished support for the face, a filler will diminish or reverse these aging concerns. Additionally, some fillers actively stimulate collagen and elastin production, in order to promote a natural process of skin repair.
We tend to think of aging as wrinkly, sagging skin on the superficial layers of the face. However, these outward signs of aging are a sign of what’s happening in the deeper, layers of the skin. As we age, our collagen and elastin become depleted. Further, cellular turnover slows down. Additionally, we lose fat in our face and our skin becomes thinner. As a result, our skin begins to sag, wrinkle and appear less youthful. While these processes happen gradually, they eventually cause a cascading effect on the face. A dermal filler can keep these processes in check.
Cosmetic fillers have efficacy for many areas of the face, including:
- Improving skin texture on all areas of the face
- Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles on all areas of the face
- Reversing laugh lines around the eyes and mouth
- Reducing eye bags under the eyes in the tear trough area
- Reducing crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
- Diminishing a hooded eyebrow
- Cheek augmentation, in order to restore sunken hollows
- Restoring the jawline or saggy jowls
- Minimizing nasolabial folds and marionette lines around the nose and mouth
- Lip augmentation, including plumping the lips and reversing vertical wrinkles
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers
Many of the best dermal fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid. These include:
- Juvederm (Allergan)
- Restylane (Galderma)
- Belotero (Merz)
They all make use of Hyaluronic Acid, a molecule that the body naturally produces under the skin. The function of HA is to keep the skin plump, firm and hydrated. As we age, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) production diminishes. These fillers work to replenish lost HA. Each HA filler differs in its proprietary blend of ingredients, as well as the molecular weight of its HA. Therefore, each one is suited to a particular aging concern.
Calcium Hydorxylapatite Fillers
Radiesse also makes use of a naturally-occuring molecule. Called Calcium hydroxylapatite, it’s shares similarities to bones. As a result, Radiesse is designed to stay in place, hold its shape, withstand force and provide for less migration of product from the treatment area. All of these attributes translate into superior lifting power.
In general, fillers are highly effective for adding volume to the face. However, they differ by viscosity and weight. Therefore, each formulation offers a unique balance of the three essential properties of a cosmetic filler: elasticity, cohesity and plasticity. For example, you may have heard of a “softer filler”. Basically, this refers to a filler of thinner weight and viscosity. As a result, a softer filler will be better at correcting a superficial aging concern, such as fine lines. On the other hand, a filler with more weight and viscosity will provide a sturdier structure for the face, such as restoring volume to the cheek area.

It’s extremely important to find the best doctor for dermal fillers. With the arsenal of specialized fillers available today, the choices can be overwhelming. A physician with experience administering fillers on many patients has the medical expertise to guide you. He or she can create a personalized treatment plan based on your particular aging concerns and individual skincare needs. Specifically, we recommend coming in to see Smooth Synergy’s Medical Director, Dr. George Liakeas. He administers all cosmetic injectables on site. With a proven track record, a wealth of medical experience, as well as a keen eye for aesthetics, you are in good hands with him for your injectable procedure.
Fillers are instantly effective at restoring volume and smoothing out lines and wrinkles. How long they last depends on the formulation. Generally speaking, a filler lasts between 6-12 months; however, the longest lasting fillers work for up to 18 months. They are not permanent and require a maintenance regime. The time between treatment depends on each individual’s skincare concern and treatment goals.
How many syringes of fillers depends on the area treated, as well as the correction desired. For example, a filler for lips will be a different price than filler for cheeks. In general, we suggest that you come in for a complimentary consultation to determine the cost of treatment.
