As we age, our bodies produce less of the proteins and fibers that retain moisture in the skin and provide volume and structure. This depletion results in wrinkles and hollows. While this occurs naturally, some factors like sun exposure or smoking accelerate the aging process, especially in the face.
Dermal fillers can be a great option for patients seeking to replace lost volume, fill in wrinkle lines, or restore youthful facial contours. These fillers are FDA-approved compounds that are injected by our dermatology professionals beneath the surface of the skin. Fillers are a safe way to achieve the youthful look you’ve always wanted. Better yet, they are a great alternative to more invasive cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift.
Dermal Fillers Treatments
Dermal fillers typically come in three types: those made from natural materials (hyaluronic acid), animal-derived substances (collagen), or synthetic materials. Our board-certified dermatologists can best determine which product is best suited to achieve your specific cosmetic goals.

Fillers last from several months to several years, depending on the compound and use.

At Derick Dermatology, we personalize the dermal fillers experience to each patient. Before administering any injections, we thoughtfully evaluate your face in order to map out a precise plan of treatment. This in-depth process ensures a natural-looking outcome.
However, our process doesn’t end there. Our standard of care features a “pan-facial volumization” technique, meaning that fillers are injected in such a way as to create natural-appearing volume in the face. You won’t look like you’ve had work done; you’ll simply look terrific!
