As your skin ages, its essential building blocks such as collagen and elastin decrease in production, leading to visible lines, wrinkles, and creases. At Carolina Plastic Surgery, we offer multiple solutions to improving your appearance, including non-surgical dermal fillers to restore volume to aging skin.
What are Dermal Fillers?Unlike BOTOX and Dysport, which are administered into facial muscles, dermal fillers are injected underneath the skin with a fine needle. These treatments are typically derived from substances that are found naturally in the body, including hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps to keep your skin hydrated. A filler that has a base of hyaluronic acid will provide a natural glow to your skin as well as be metabolized in a healthy way by your body. Substances like hyaluronic acid begin working immediately to plump volume-deficient areas and restore a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can target multiple signs of aging, including:
- Smile lines
- Corner lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Marionette lines
- Thin lips
- Sunken cheeks
JuvedermDeveloped to target parentheses lines and nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth, Juvederm contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market and can create results that last for up to a year with optimal treatment. Dr. Saini uses this dermal filler mixed with lidocaine for increased patient comfort.
Juvederm VolumaAs part of the aging process, it is also common for the cheeks to develop a sunken, hollow look as the skin loses shape and volume. Part of the Juvederm family of fillers, Voluma helps restore more youthful shape and volume to the midface for results that can last for up to two years with optimal treatment.
Juvederm VollureIntroducing Juvederm Vollure, the newest addition to the Juvederm family! Juvederm Vollure is FDA-approved to treat moderate and severe facial folds and wrinkles in adults over 21 years of age. The advanced VYCROSS® technology allows for subtle yet transformative results.

The Benefits Of Dermal FillersThe wide variety of dermal fillers offered at Dr. Saini’s office helps to address and improve many different areas on a patient’s body. Most dermal fillers are applied to the face, however, dermal fillers can also be used in other areas to improve imperfections such as scarring. Dermal fillers often improve a patient’s:
- Midfacial region
- Wrinkles, lines, and creases
- Facial definition
After a dermal filler procedure, you will enjoy younger, smoother skin. Patients often express more confidence because of the improvement in their appearance. You can enjoy these benefits too!
