Dermal Filler Procedures

Dermal fillers are designed to safely and reliably add volume to the face while they soften wrinkles, smooth lines, and improve facial contours. Adding volume with strategic care to certain areas of the face can be accomplished with a variety of dermal filler procedures. 

When Are Dermal Fillers Needed?

During our youth, our body produces enough elastin and collagen to keep our skin moist, supple, elastic, and wrinkle-free. Over time, this production naturally slows down, causing the skin to become less elastic and allowing fine lines, folds, and wrinkles to develop. 

Shadows can develop in the temples, chin, and cheeks as the volume of youthful skin decreases. Around the nose and mouth, marionette lines can form, and lip volume can decrease, caused by the cupid’s bow area flattening over time. 

Dermal fillers can do more than just fill in areas of the skin; they can also re-establish and promote increased collagen and elastin production, leading to a more lasting youthful appearance.

Dermal Fillers Procedure 

If you’re interested in dermal fillers, you’ll start with a consultation so that we can evaluate your concerns and devise a plan for treatment for you. There are many different FDA-approved products that are available, so your customized treatment plan will include the best ones to address your concerns.

The procedures for treatments are convenient, quick, and simple. Oftentimes, dermal filler results are almost instantaneous. There is little to no downtime or recovery time required afterward, which means you can leave our office and go about your daily business, resuming strenuous activities the very next day.

We use a local anesthetic for the dermal fillers procedure and an advanced technique to ensure that you are comfortable. Sessions usually take between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on your customized treatment plan.

Dermal fillers results often show immediate improvement to the area(s) of the face that received the treatment. Results vary from patient to patient and also depend on whether you choose to do one treatment type at a time or more than one per session. Many results last up to one year, two years, or longer.

Dermal Fillers Cost

The dermal fillers cost is dependent on many factors, including the areas of the face that will be treated and how many treatments will be carried out. Since the costs can vary so greatly, they will be clearly outlined in your customized treatment plan.

Types of Dermal Fillers for the Face

There are several different brands of dermal fillers available, and under each brand, various specific products can be used. The best brands, all of which are available at Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center, include:

  • Juvéderm

  • Restylane

  • Radiesse

  • Sculptra Aesthetic

With such a wide variety of brands and products available, the possibilities are truly endless and also exciting. Rest assured that we will personalize a treatment plan for you that includes using the best products to address your aesthetic concerns and desires.


Juvéderm is an FDA-approved dermal filler treatment that includes a variety of specific products. These include Juvéderm Vollure XC, Vobella XC, Voluma XC, Ultra XC, and Ultra Plus XC.

The Juvéderm line of products is very successful at improving the look of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, vertical fine lines, and lines around the mouth. The products also are used to add contour to many different areas of the face, including adding volume to the lips. 

Some of the products contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally in the skin that adds volume and hydration.


Restylane is also an FDA-approved dermal filler that provides correction for moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. It is especially effective on marionette lines, tear troughs, the nasolabial folds, and the lips. The Restylane line of products includes Refyne, Defyne, Lyft, and Silk.

While Refyne is an excellent choice for areas that require a natural look during facial animations, Lyft is much more robust and is used on a deeper level to provide natural lift and volume. 

Defyne is a popular choice for deeper wrinkles and lines that require more structure and lift, and Silk is used in and around the lips to enhance their smoothness and full appearance.


This popular FDA-approved treatment improves the appearance of wrinkles and folds, and it also is effective at providing lift to areas of the face that have suffered a loss of volume. The results with Radiesse are immediate, and this dermal filler also stimulates the body’s own collagen production.

It’s often used to improve folds, lines, and wrinkles around the mouth and nose and can also be used with other fillers.

Sculptra Aesthetic

This is a series of injections that stimulate your body’s ability to produce its own collagen to improve the overall volume of the face while it improves contours. Lost collagen is gradually replaced while Sculptra provides a structure for that collagen, which allows results to develop more discreetly and naturally. 

Noticeable results gradually emerge and can last for up to 25 months.
