Dermal Fillers

The gradual loss of hyaluronic acid and elastin is the primary reason for the onset of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. Abbott Aesthetics offers cutting-edge hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, to help you achieve and maintain youthful skin.

Hyaluronic Acid: The Secret To Youth

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is often referred to as the “key to youth.” It’s responsible for keeping your skin smooth, hydrated, and supple. When you’re young, your body produces ample amounts of this powerful humectant— a sugar molecule that binds to water, leading to an increase in skin hydration. But as you age, your hyaluronic acid levels start to decrease, which leads to a decrease in moisture and an overall lack of firmness and elasticity.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar that makes your skin look soft and supple. When injected into targeted facial tissues, dermal fillers restore your skin’s depleting hyaluronic acid reserves to reverse the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, creases, gaunt cheeks, etc. Each dermal filler has a unique formulation suitable for different treatment areas and goals, so your treatment must be personalized to your skin.

Your Dermal Filler Options


Juvéderm is a family of dermal fillers created by Allergan, the same company that makes Botox. Juvéderm comprises a range of products that treat wrinkles and facial volume loss. Juvéderm products include Juvéderm XC, Voluma XC, Volbella XC, Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, and Vollure XC. Each filler has a unique consistency suitable for different goals and treatment areas, such as the nasolabial folds, hollow cheeks, chin, lips, or fine lines.


Restylane is a family of dermal fillers designed to restore facial volume, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and plump thin lips. The patented XpresHAn Technology used to produce Restylane helps create long-lasting, natural-looking results. With various fillers available, you can customize your results to fit your individual needs. Whether you’re looking to reduce laugh lines or add definition to your lips and cheeks, Restylane is a trusted, safe, and effective choice.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Facial creases and folds
  • Nasolabial folds around the nose
  • Marionette lines around the mouth

Sculpt Your Facial Contours

Dermal fillers are excellent anti-aging tools, but they can also help with facial contouring. Carefully injecting strategic doses of hyaluronic acid-based fillers into the lips, chin, and cheeks allows us to elevate your natural facial contours. If you’re concerned about a recessed chin or an insufficiently prominent jawline, we can use hyaluronic acid fillers to help you achieve your desired aesthetics. Fillers can be used for chin and cheek augmentation, lip enhancement, and other contouring purposes.

The Dermal Filler Treatment

Your dermal filler treatment starts with a thorough consultation. Our medical providers carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, measure the degree of volume loss, and curate a personalized treatment plan. They discuss your options and select the appropriate fillers for your specific needs. The chosen fillers are carefully and strategically injected into targeted facial tissues using ultrafine needles, usually after applying a numbing gel for comfort. The number of injections and treatment areas depends on your goals.

The Dermal Filler Recovery

After the treatment, you can expect mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites. These side effects usually dissipate within a few days. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment, but avoid saunas, hot showers, direct sunlight, and workouts for a day or two. The filler will settle into your facial tissues within a few days, revealing soft, beautiful results.

Dermal Fillers FAQs

Which dermal filler is right for me?

Choosing the right dermal filler depends a lot on your individual aesthetic needs. Your medical provider will assess your skin type, condition, and anatomy to determine which filler product from the Juvéderm or Restylane family is right for you.

Can I use dermal fillers to achieve a sharper jawline?

Yes, you can use dermal fillers to achieve a sharper jawline! Dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to subtly sculpt and contour the jawline by adding volume and definition to the softening edges of your chin and jawline. This non-surgical procedure can help you to achieve a sharper and more angular chin and jawline without surgery — your medical provider will select the appropriate filler for this treatment.

Will dermal fillers make me look fake or “plastic”?

We believe in helping you look like the most natural version of yourself. Our medical providers will calibrate the treatment and select the appropriate filler to ensure soft, naturalized results. You don’t have to worry about frozen expressions or looking fake.

When will I see the results from dermal fillers?

You will see the results of your treatment immediately. But you’ll truly appreciate the results once the side effects dissipate and the hyaluronic acid settles into your facial tissues.

How long do the results usually last?

The results of dermal fillers usually last 6 to 18 months. But the specific longevity depends on the filler used, the treatment area, dosage, lifestyle, and other factors.
