Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume underneath targeted facial tissues to reverse the signs of aging. Each dermal filler has a unique formulation suitable for different parts of the face, such as facial wrinkles, nasolabial folds, hollow cheeks, lips, or jawline. Your cosmetic provider injects the ideal dermal fillers into targeted areas to fill out the fine lines and wrinkles, restore facial volume, and elevate the facial contours. We provide a comprehensive range of dermal fillers, including Juvéderm, Radiesse, Restylane, RHA Fillers, and Sculptra.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers are made of a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring gel that binds 1,000x its one weight in water, making your skin look supple. The loss of hyaluronic acid due to age leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and the loss of facial volume. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, restore hyaluronic acid reserves to reverse the signs of aging. They produce instant results that last for 6 to 18 months, depending on the filler.

Collagen Fillers

Collagen fillers encourage your body to produce its natural filler material — collagen. Dermal fillers like Radiesse and Sculptra are made of naturally-occurring materials that can trigger natural collagen production within your skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and voluminous, and the loss of collagen leads to facial sagging and wrinkles. Collagen-induction fillers don’t provide instant results, but they trigger natural collagen production, thus encouraging your body to heal itself over an extended period.

Your Dermal Filler Options


Juvéderm is one of the world’s leading collections of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Juvéderm fillers can fill out facial wrinkles, reduce nasolabial folds and creases, enhance midface volume, and elevate the contours of your cheeks, jawline, and lips.


Radiesse is a collagen-inducing filler made of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a gel carrier. When injected into targeted areas on the skin, Radiesse stimulates natural collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, restore facial volume, and enhance contours.


Restylane is a broad collection of hyaluronic acid-based fillers made using a proprietary XpresHAn technology that ensures natural results. When injected into targeted areas, Restylane fillers enhance facial volume without causing stiffness or unnatural results.

RHA Fillers

RHA fillers are specialized hyaluronic acid fillers made using a proprietary technique that retains the purity of HA — no fillers or additional chemicals. Consequently, RHA fillers can also correct dynamic facial wrinkles, such as frown lines, without freezing your facial expressions.


Sculptra is a collagen-inducing filler made of poly-l-lactic acid, a naturally occurring component that stimulates collagen production under the skin. When injected into targeted areas, Sculptra fills out fine lines and wrinkles, restores facial volume, and elevates your contours.

Your Dermal Fillers Experience

Dr. Michael Chiodo’s office specializes in personalized dermal fillers. Our cosmetic providers will carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your goals and concerns, identify the signs of aging on your skin, and review your medical history. After a thorough evaluation, our cosmetic providers will select the ideal collection of filler for you — Juvéderm, Radiesse, Restylane, RHA, or Sculptra. They will also select the appropriate dosage to ensure natural results.

During your dermal filler treatment, the cosmetic provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The appropriate units of the chosen dermal fillers are carefully injected into the targeted treatment areas on your face using ultrafine needles. You might experience a pinch, but there’s no pain. The number of injections depends on your specific goals and concerns. The treatment concludes within 30 minutes.

Recovery After Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers involve minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites for a few days. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts and physical activities for a day or two.

Dermal Fillers: Results & Longevity

The results of dermal fillers depend on the chosen fillers and treatment areas. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm, RHA, and Restylane, produce instant results that last for 6 to 18 months. Collagen-inducing fillers, such as Radiesse and Sculptra, may offer mild improvements after the treatment, but the final results appear gradually over several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers. The final results may last for several years.
