What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants or facial fillers, are injected to smooth wrinkles, add volume or soften features without the need for surgery. These products use active ingredients that occur naturally in the body, such as hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite. After injections, the results safely reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Facial Fillers with Dr. Flaharty
Types of Dermal Fillers
Here at Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa we offer a range of dermal fillers. Our lineup covers all facial areas and can be used in conjunction with other non-surgical treatments for best results. Learn how they can restore a smooth, youthful, and vital appearance to your face.
Juvéderm® is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that helps maintain skin volume and hydration. Juvéderm is available in modified versions that are useful for facial wrinkles and folds. It also binds with collagen and elastin, transporting essential nutrients to the fibers that make up much of the support structure of the skin.
Radiesse® is made from calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, rather than hyaluronic acid. Radiesse stimulates collagen production and tissue regeneration. As a result, it produces both immediate and extended results. Most commonly, Radiesse is used to smooth nasolabial folds and marionette lines, cheek augmentation, and plump up sunken areas below the eyes.

Restylane® is also made from hyaluronic acid, but it is used mostly for moderate facial lines and wrinkles as opposed to lifting and contouring purposes. Restylane is often used in conjunction with Botox and Dysport to enhance and extend the life of results.
We are pleased to offer Sculptra, a “bio-stimulatory” filler that takes facial fillers to a new level. Sculptra’s main ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid, is long-lasting, biocompatible, and biodegradable. Sculptra restores tissue loss by replacing lost volume with your body’s own collagen. The injections are often done in a series of treatments and Dr. Flaharty can develop a custom plan with you in order to achieve your goals.
Dermal Fillers Treatment
When administered on their own, most dermal filler treatments are quick and simple. These outpatient sessions typically last for about 30 minutes, allowing patients to pop in for a boost and return to their normal activities soon afterward.
Prior to the procedure, a member of our aesthetic team first cleanses the area to be treated and marks the skin. The injections themselves take only seconds, and discomfort is managed with topical anesthetics or ice. These fillers can be combined with other services such as Botox or facial plastic surgery.
The Dermal Filler Process
Dermal Filler Results
Following a treatment, we recommend a cold compress to minimize swelling. Temporary and mild side effects can occur including bruising, redness, numbness, or itching at the injection sites. Depending on the product used and the patient’s anatomy, results are visible immediately and usually last for many months.
