From Supple Skin to a Shapely Silhouette

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are minimally invasive injectables that can be used to smooth out the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as build volume and enhance contours in areas like the face, lips, hands, and body. They are administered in a simple treatment that often comes with little to no downtime, providing results that last several months to a year or more. They work by stimulating natural processes in the body, such as drawing moisture to the area or helping boost collagen production. We work with a complete range of dermal fillers to provide treatments meticulously tailored to your goals.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs in the human body, where it plays a lubricating role in areas like the joints. Formulated with synthetic hyaluronic acid, HA fillers are clear gel-like injectable substances that come in various consistencies for specific treatment areas and concerns. By drawing moisture to the areas where they are injected, HA fillers build volume, refine contours, and fill in lines, deep creases, and hollows that can show up with aging.

  • Treatment areas: Face, lips, hands
  • Brand names: Juvederm (Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm UPXC, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Volbella), Restylane (Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Contour), Revance/RHA (RHA 2, RHA 3, RHA 4, RHA Redensity).
  • Duration of results: 6 to 18 months (depending on treatment area and filler type)

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) Fillers

Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers like Radiesse are an excellent choice for body contouring, particularly for enhancing the buttocks and smoothing out the appearance of dimples and cellulite on the thighs. Radiesse contains CaHA microspheres suspended in a gel carrier, which immediately adds volume. Beyond the immediate volume correction, Radiesse also continues to stimulate collagen production. The CaHA acts like a scaffold to build collagen for longer-lasting results.

  • Treatment areas: Face, neck, chest, hands, buttocks, thighs
  • Brand names: Radiesse
  • Duration of results: A year or more

Poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA)

Poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) dermal fillers, such as Sculptra, work by stimulating the body's natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and support to the skin, keeping it firm and elastic. PLLA fillers are known for providing natural-looking results. The gradual stimulation of collagen mimics the body's natural processes, avoiding an abrupt change in appearance.

  • Treatment areas: Face, buttocks, thighs
  • Brand names: Sculptra
  • Duration of results: Up to two years or longer

Allograft Adipose Matrix

Renuva, composed of an allograft adipose matrix, is an innovative dermal filler that is highly effective for body contouring. What sets this filler apart is that it prompts the production of your own fat cells, providing results similar to fat grafting. However, unlike fat grafting, Renuva cuts out the initial step of liposuction to collect donor fat. This means a less invasive treatment and less downtime.

  • Treatment areas: Face, buttocks, thighs, breasts
  • Brand names: Renuva
  • Duration of results: Up to ten years

A Little Polish Goes a Long Way

What are the benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Our Pittsburgh Dermal filler treatments are administered via minimally invasive injections and come with little to no downtime. They have a broad range of uses for different areas of the face and body.


Hyaluronic acid fillers are most commonly used for facial rejuvenation. These fillers come in many consistencies that can be used for smoothing out fine lines and deep creases, rebuilding volume, and creating more defined contours. 

  • Cheeks: Rebuild depleted volume and create more graceful, lifted contours.
  • Temples: Smooth out age-related hollowing.
  • Under-eyes: Fill in tear troughs for a more youthful, rested look.
  • Nasolabial folds: Correct deep creases running from the nose to the outer corners of the mouth.
  • Marionette lines: Smooth out lines running from the outer corners of the mouth to the chin.
  • Perioral lines (“smoker’s lines”): Diminish the appearance of fine lines radiating out from the lips.
  • Chin and jawline: Define and enhance the jawline, improve the appearance of a double chin or weak chin, or balance out asymmetries.


Dermal fillers are a popular method for adding volume, shapeliness, and balance to the lips for a beautiful enhancement. HA fillers come in special formulations for the lips, providing a natural look and feel. The results can range from subtle to more dramatic, depending on individual preferences. We focus on contouring artful results that complement and elevate your natural features. Learn more about Lip Fillers


The backs of the hands are a common place for diminishing fat and skin elasticity to show up, emphasizing the appearance of veins and bones and contributing to a more aged appearance. We use HA fillers to smooth out these hollows, giving the hands a refreshed, smooth appearance.


Did you know that fillers can also be used for body sculpting? Radiesse, Sculptra, and Renuva are excellent options for sculpting and enhancing the buttocks and thighs. The focus is typically on providing volume and lift for a more balanced appearance. Dimples and divots caused by cellulite and loss of elasticity can also be visibly smoothed out, improving both the contours and the tone of this area of the body. These biostimulatory dermal fillers provide a non-surgical alternative to the Brazilian Butt Lift.

Artistry Meets Technique

Your Dermal Fillers Procedure

Dermal fillers are carefully injected into targeted areas to smooth out fine lines and deep creases, add volume, or enhance contours. A numbering cream can be applied beforehand to ensure maximum comfort. The length of treatment will depend on the treatment areas, but most dermal filler procedures take between fifteen minutes and an hour. Injections are placed in precise quantities and at precise depths to create the desired outcome. Your aesthetic specialist will follow the roadmap you created together during the consultation stage to sculpt, smooth, and enhance the treatment area, creating natural-looking results.

Dermal Fillers Results

After receiving dermal filler Pittsburgh patients can expect the timeline for results to vary, depending on the type of filler used. HA and CaHA-based fillers provide some immediate improvements, but results continue to refine themselves over the next couple of weeks as the filler goes to work in the treatment area. PLLA fillers like Sculptra tend to work more gradually by stimulating collagen production, and visible results may become apparent over several weeks to months. The results from Renuva might take up to three months to fully develop. Improvements in texture, volume, and shape last anywhere from several months to several years, according to the type of filler. Overall, dermal fillers provide extended rejuvenation targeted to your goals with minimal invasiveness or downtime.

Refreshingly Simple

Dermal Fillers Recovery and Aftercare

We will provide you with aftercare instructions specific to your procedure. Recovery time after dermal fillers is typically minimal, with an immediate return to most routine activities. You may need to avoid strenuous exercise or pressure on the treatment area for a certain amount of time. Aftercare also involves gentle skin care and avoiding excessive sun exposure. We prioritize ongoing support after your appointment and are always available to answer questions and provide guidance, ensuring you achieve the beautiful results you are seeking.

Dermal Fillers Frequently Asked Questions

Dermal fillers come in many formulations. The active ingredient in most fillers has a biostimulatory effect on the tissues where they are injected, helping to add volume under the skin. For example, hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers pull moisture to the treatment area for a targeted plumping effect. Other fillers work by stimulating collagen production or the production of new fat cells.

Different types of dermal fillers can be used on the face, lips, the backs of the hands, or to enhance the contours of the buttocks. Dermal fillers are useful for smoothing out hollows, wrinkles, and creases, as well as adding shape and volume for facial or body contouring.

It is normal to experience some tenderness, redness, bruising, or swelling around the injection sites. These side effects typically clear up within a few days. Serious complications are rare but can include infection or allergic reactions.

Dermal fillers work by building volume under the skin to smooth out lines and enhance contours. On the other hand, neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport reduce dynamic wrinkles by temporarily pausing muscle contractions that cause creases to form, allowing the skin to relax and smooth out. Both treatments are minimally invasive injectables that can improve the appearance of your skin.

Yes, dermal fillers can make a good complement to other minimally invasive rejuvenation methods like injectable neuromodulators or laser therapy. We work alongside you to assess your needs and goals and create the best treatment plan for you.
