Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a category of facial enhancement treatment that comes in the form of injections. They typically consist of thick substances containing proteins, fat, or other ingredients that your body can safely and easily absorb. 

As you age, you lose much of the volume in your cheeks and lips that kept you looking young at one point in your life. Specifically, your skin stops producing collagen and elastin fibers that keep your skin tight, hydrated, and supple. Dermal fillers counter these changes by adding volume and often stimulating further production of your own proteins.

How can dermal fillers enhance my appearance?

There are many changes you can make using dermal fillers, especially if you’re going for a more youthful but natural result. Your physician at South Florida Preventive Care Group can help you choose the right filler to:

  • Make your lips plump
  • Add volume to thinning skin and shallow facial contours
  • Make your face appear more symmetrical
  • Soften wrinkles and fine lines
  • Minimize scars from injuries or acne

With increasingly drastic and long-lasting results, dermal fillers are a great alternative to cosmetic surgery. You can get them alone or as part of a larger treatment plan including Botox®, microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and other aesthetic treatments.

What kinds of dermal fillers are available?

South Florida Preventive Care Group provides several top dermal filler brands to meet your needs. They contain different ingredients for varied effects. You can opt for:


Dermal fillers by Juvederm are made of a smooth hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin hold water to stay plump and gorgeous for nine months to a year. Many Juvederm products also contain lidocaine for a numbing effect. 


Restylane is a filler with a hyaluronic acid base that’s derived from bacteria, not animals. It’s especially effective and safe for patients who have allergies or sensitivities to a variety of foods, medications, or other substances. You’ll enjoy your results from Restylane injections for about six months.

If you’d like to make some slight but notable adjustments to the shape and contours of your face, book your consultation for dermal fillers by phone or online at South Florida Preventive Care Group today.
