What are fillers?

Fillers are cosmetic injectables that can add volume to various areas that lose it with age. As you age, you lose subdermal fat. This fat loss causes certain features to appear thinner, flatter, or bonier. With fillers, you can add just the right amount of volume to retain a more youthful look.

The experts at Clear Skin Dermatology place filler injections very carefully according to your goals and expectations. They inject just a small amount at a time to keep your facial proportions natural and realistic.

Clear Skin Dermatology offers two high-end brands of fillers:


Juvéderm® fillers have a hyaluronic acid base. Some Juvéderm® products contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, to make the injection more comfortable.


Radiesse® contains a gel base and microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite. The calcium hydroxylapatite stimulates new collagen production within your skin, causing your results to outlast the gel component of the filler.

Which areas can I target using fillers?

Fillers can make alterations to your face, lips, or hands. The experts at Clear Skin Dermatology help you define clear goals for treatment with one or more targeted areas.

Specific changes you can make with fillers include:

  • Plumper cheeks
  • Plumper lips
  • More defined lips
  • More volume in your temples
  • More volume in your hands
  • Less noticeable scars
  • Fewer wrinkles around your mouth and nose

Radiesse® and Juvéderm® both yield highly defined results. Using dermal fillers can help you avoid the costs and inconvenience of cosmetic surgery. Plus, the results aren’t permanent so there isn’t as much of a commitment.

How long do fillers last?

Both Juvéderm® and Radiesse® have high-quality formulas that allow you to enjoy your results for a long time before they fade away. While each patient is different, Juvéderm® products generally last one to two years, and Radiesse® products last 18 months or longer.

Once your results fade and your original features reappear, you can book a follow-up appointment at Clear Skin Dermatology for another set of filler injections.

Cosmetic treatments are on the rise in popularity, and dermal fillers are some of the most popular nonsurgical options. To find out if you’re a candidate for Juvéderm® or Radiesse® injections, call Clear Skin Dermatology or request an appointment online today.
