Dermal fillers are aesthetic gel based treatments injected into the skin. They are specifically designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour the face and create volume. Some dermal fillers are also used to hydrate and revitalise your skin.
Dermal fillers are based on a substance that occurs naturally in your body – a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. Its normal function is to bind water so it acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body, such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin. By boosting your skin with this naturally occurring substance, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the area instantly.
About Dermal Fillers
Why Use Dermal Fillers?
As you age, your skin naturally starts losing its texture, elasticity, and strength. The smile lines, the crow’s feet and even the frown lines become evident as the years pass. Dermal fillers can be one of the effective solutions for your aging skin. When they are injected, they increase the volume of the face adding more strength to the skin.
Dermal fillers can plump your thin lips, enhance the face contour, reduce wrinkles and fine lines and improve the total appearance of the skin. The maximum benefits of these fillers can be obtained by people with the early signs of aging.

Bellaﬁll® for Acne Scars
How It Works?
Bellaﬁll® is an injectable ﬁller that’s FDA approved to treat certain types of acne scars. Bellaﬁll® yields instant smoothness that you can appreciate as soon as you leave the ofﬁce — and it’s been clinically proven to last through twelve months.
Bellaﬁll® is approved for use on men and women who are 21 and older. It works on distensible and atrophic acne scars on the cheeks. Distensible scars smooth out when you tug on them; atrophic scars are pitted or depressed in the skin.
Bellaﬁll® is safe on all skin types, textures, and colors, but patients require an allergy test before treatment.
Both the collagen gel and PMMA in Bellaﬁll® have established safety records. PMMA has long been used in other areas of medicine, such as orthopedic surgery, dentistry, and ophthalmology.
The Patient Experience
Bellaﬁll® for acne is an outpatient procedure. Treatment begins by cleansing your skin and preparing it for treatment. A series of carefully placed injections then add volume to smooth away acne scars. Your treatment is relatively brief, and there is no downtime, so you may return to your normal activities as soon as you leave the treatment session.
Although signiﬁcant side effects are uncommon, you may experience localized sensations, such as itching, bruising, swelling, redness, discoloration, bumps, or increased sensitivity. These effects are typically temporary and will go away on their own.
Bellaﬁll® is a smooth, collagen gel-based dermal ﬁller that contains tiny PMMA microspheres. The collagen gel in Bellaﬁll® provides immediate volume and lift to correct lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for instant results. Even as the collagen is absorbed by your body, the PMMA microspheres remain in place, creating a "scaffold" that triggers and supports your own natural collagen production. Because your own collagen replaces the collagen gel from the initial injections, results last seamlessly through ﬁve years.
Yes. Bellaﬁll® is FDA approved and has been proven safe and effective in rigorous clinical studies. Bellaﬁll® performed very well in the largest and longest safety study ever conducted on dermal ﬁllers. At the study's completion, 83% of patients were still satisﬁed with their results 5 years after treatment.
As with many injectable ﬁllers, you may experience bruising, itching, pain, swelling, redness, discoloration, lumpiness, bumps, acne, or increased sensitivity at the treatment site. These side effects usually resolve themselves quickly.
Bellaﬁll® creates a lasting improvement in your skin by smoothing out the lines around the nasolabial folds. There's no required downtime after your treatment with Bellaﬁll®. You can return to your normal routine immediately.
What is Juvederm xc?
JUVEDERM® XC is the first and only FDA-approved HA filler that lasts up to 1 year with 1 treatment. Innovative HYLACROSS™ technology makes JUVEDERM® XC the first smooth-consistency gel that flows easily and consistently into the skin. Patients can expect smooth, natural-looking results with the improved comfort they want.
How Does Juvederm XC Work?
By injecting Juvederm XC injectable gel into your skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines” and “marionette lines.” Juvederm temporarily adds volume to the skin and gives the appearance of a smoother surface. Results can last for up to one year!
Where is Juvederm XC Used?
Juvederm XC can be used in many areas of the face. Most common areas are the lips, nasal labial folds, and cheeks. You will have minimal to no bruising with Juvederm XC. The treatment only takes about 30 minutes and the results are instant! No downtime!
What Makes Juvederm XC Different?
Juvederm XC is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to one year. Its unique manufacturing process provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. It also works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. All other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels. And, Juvederm XC is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.
A solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume. RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler works immediately so the results are instant. Once injected, RADIESSE Volumizing Filler adds the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. What makes RADIESSE truly unique is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. The production of natural collagen continues for several months, which extends beyond the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results.
Introducing BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler. A dermal filler as unique as you are. Specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around all areas of the face and neck such as fine lines in the cheeks, forehead lines, crows feet and vertical lip lines for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you.
BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.
