Fillers Q & A

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers are made of clinical-grade ingredients that are designed to fill in areas where you’ve lost volume, which occurs naturally with age. One of the most common components of dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid. This naturally occurring substance attracts water molecules, giving you fuller, smoother-looking skin.

Hyaluronic acid, the primary ingredient in top-selling fillers like Juvéderm, also boosts collagen production. While the substance fills in your skin, it simultaneously creates more firming connective tissue, providing longer-lasting results.

Are dermal fillers permanent?

Depending on which type of dermal filler you get and the severity of your volume loss, your custom dermal filler package can last up to 18-24 months, or more.

Plus, once your fillers start wearing off, you can safely have the treatment repeated. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gould and Dr. Jacobson can let you know how long you can expect your specific line of fillers to last.

What areas can dermal fillers treat?

Because Dr. Gould and Dr. Jacobson have extensive training with injectable treatments and anti-aging skin care, you can feel confident that they’re going to customize an effective filler package that’s best suited for your needs, which could include:

  • Juvéderm Ultra XC to plump up the lips
  • Juvéderm Voluma® XC for sagging cheeks
  • Juvéderm Vollure™ XC or Juvéderm Volbella® XC to treat deepening folds around the nose and mouth

Dermal filler injections are also beneficial for minimizing the appearance of acne scars. If you have wrinkles or sagging areas that you want to volumize, dermal fillers can be beneficial.  

Dr. Gould and Dr. Jacobson sometimes pair dermal fillers with Botox® injections to further minimize the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and imperfections. The team at Gould-Jacobson Dermatology strive to offer the latest in filler treatments, and they’re continuously adding to their product line, so every client gets the best results.
