What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injections that can treat many cosmetic concerns — without stitches or downtime. They’re made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occuring substance in your body, which can restore any lost volume in your skin and rejuvenate its appearance.
When injected into the skin, it can help fill in deep wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, or even redefine lips and restore sunken cheeks.
What are the different types of dermal fillers available?
Align Body & Wellness offers a wide range of dermal fillers from both Galderma™ and Allergan™, including Restylane®️ and Juvéderm®️ products. These products help enhance different areas of your face and achieve a more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers can add instant volume to static wrinkles to fill them in. In addition, it can help increase cheek fullness, reshape your lips, and more.
Bellafill is a type of filler that consists of tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres in a collagen gel-based form.
This filler works by boosting collagen production and gradually reducing your acne scars or frown lines. Bellafill treatments can provide you with smoother skin and results that last for five years*.
Lip fillers are also made of hyaluronic acid (HA) to give you fuller, natural-looking lips.

- Static wrinkles
- Dynamic wrinkles

- Crow’s feet

- Flat or thin lips

Depending on your aesthetic goals, your provider at Align Body & Wellness can recommend the type of dermal filler that best suits your needs.
How can dermal fillers help with static and dynamic wrinkles?
Static wrinkles are deeper facial folds that occur because of collagen loss as you age. Types of static wrinkles include nasolabial folds, which frame your nose and mouth, or lip wrinkles. These types of wrinkles show when your face is at rest. On the other hand, dynamic wrinkles smooth out after you make a facial expression.
Many people have a combination of static and dynamic wrinkles as they age. Whether you have static or dynamic wrinkles, dermal fillers can help you restore age-related volume loss. Your provider at Align Body & Wellness can give you a liquid face-lift, which combines Dysport or Botox and dermal fillers to help you address both wrinkle types at once.
What is the process for getting dermal fillers?
When you come in for dermal fillers, your provider at Align Body & Wellness examines your skin health and provides you with detailed instructions on what to expect with dermal filler treatment.
After you determine the type of filler you’ll proceed with, your provider injects the specific filler into your areas of concern. Typically the size of the treatment area will determine the number of filler injections you’ll receive.
You may have some swelling, redness, tenderness, or mild bruising at the injection sites, but this is temporary for most people, and you can return to your normal activities when you leave the office.
How long do dermal fillers last?
For most people, dermal fillers often provide immediate results*. After your provider injects the filler, you can often see the change before and after. However, with all dermal fillers, the results gradually fade because your body absorbs the hyaluronic acid.
Most fillers last about 1 year*, but Bellafill may last up to 5 years*. To maintain your results, you can schedule follow-up maintenance treatments with your provider at Align Body & Wellness.
