What are Dermal Fillers?
As we age, our face naturally starts to lose subcutaneous fat. As our facial tissues begin to thin out, certain areas of our face including around the nose, mouth, and cheeks appear thinner. Although smile lines and crow’s feet are more noticeable and apparent, dermal fillers can combat this natural phenomenon. Dermal fillers can replace the lost volume in the face, leaving you with smooth wrinkles, plumper lips, and a more youthful appearance.
What Can Dermal Fillers Help Restore?
- Plump the lips
- Add volume to shallow contours
- Reduce facial creases and wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of recessed scars
Who Is a good candidate for dermal fillers?
If you are concerned about your skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers could be right for you. You may be a good candidate if you relate to any of the following:
- Good physical health
- Don’t smoke
- Realistic goals in desiring to improve your appearance
- Currently maintaining a good skin care regiment

Which Filler do I need?
Since there are so many fillers on the market, it is best to come in for a consultation so that Dr. Serekrakian can assess your skin and choose the right filler for your needs and desires. Each product is uniquely formulated to target specific areas, focusing on the right texture, density, and injection depth for optimal results. Provided below is a list of the dermal fillers we offer in office.
JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is a U.S. FDA-approved dermal filler that is designed to temporarily treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, in people older than 21. Results can last 6 to 9 months, and, in some cases, up to year. The Juvederm family includes many different fillers specific to different areas of the face. These fillers include the following:
- Juvéderm XC
- Voluma XC
- Juvéderm Vollure XC
Restylane® is an FDA-approved cosmetic “filler” that adds volume and elasticity to the skin. This is the trade name for a specific formulation of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance that is found in the body. As the body ages, HA levels decrease, resulting in loose skin and wrinkling. Just as Juvéderm injectables, Restylane® is a family of dermal fillers targeting different areas as well. These fillers include the following:
- Restylane Lyft®
- Restylane Silk®
RADIESSE® is a safe and effective dermal filler that is used to fill and correct smile lines, nasolabial folds, and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
