Dermal Fillers: The Ultimate Guide to Understanding the Types & Benefits

Can Dermal Fillers Fix Small Lips?Revive Wellness Group is thrilled to provide cosmetic fillers to address our patients’ aesthetic concerns. These revolutionary FDA-approved treatments take advantage of materials produced naturally within the body to enhance lip volume, smooth lip lines, fill out areas under the eyes, and much more.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Also called cosmetic fillers, the term “dermal fillers” refers to a diverse array of substances injected beneath the skin to add volume and smooth out lines and wrinkles. Many of the most popular modern cosmetic fillers contain a material called hyaluronic acid. This substance hydrates skin when injected into target areas, making it look younger and healthier.

The Science Behind Hyaluronic Acid  

Your body produces hyaluronic acid naturally and uses it to cushion and lubricate your joints. It also hydrates connective tissue and helps it maintain its elasticity. Connective tissues maintain a taut, youthful appearance in the skin, but their strength can weaken with age. Hyaluronic acid injections have two effects on the target area:

  • Physically fill the space under wrinkles, smoothing them
  • Attract and bind to water molecules, hydrating the skin and creating a healthier appearance.

This potent combination of properties allows this natural material to produce powerful results soon after treatment.

More Injectable Cosmetic Solutions

In addition to hyaluronic acid fillers, we offer the following cosmetic injectables:


Neuromodulator injections, which include Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, encourage your facial muscles to relax. They block facial muscle contractions, which are involuntary movements that can cause wrinkles over time. When neuromodulators reduce these contractions, the wrinkles begin to smooth out.


Kybella is a non-surgical FDA treatment that reduces fat underneath the chin. It uses a chemical called deoxycholic acid, which the body produces to help digest the fats you eat. When injected into a double chin, Kybella targets and destroys fat cells to help shrink the area.

Treatment Areas for Dermal Fillers: Lip, Eye, and More 

We offer cosmetic injectables to fill in wrinkles and smooth skin in many areas of the face. But for many types of dermal fillers, under eyes and around the lips are the most popular treatment areas.

Smile Lines 

Dermal fillers are versatile and can treat a variety of aesthetic concerns in and around the lips. When injected around the corners of the mouth, fillers can smooth perioral lines. Also called lipstick lines or smile lines, these wrinkles on either side of the mouth appear with age, activity, and sun exposure.

Lip Volume 

If your lips have thinned over the years, dermal fillers lip injections can enhance their size and create a younger appearance. They can also smooth asymmetries and creases in the lips to create a more uniform look.

Under-Eye Treatments 

Hyaluronic acid injected underneath hollow or sunken under-eye areas can help reduce or eliminate eye bags. While hyaluronic acid contains no pigment, it adds more volume to tear troughs and enhances under-eye volume.

Facial Rejuvenation

While dermal fillers under eyes and around the mouth are very popular, these injectables can also plump cheeks, fill wrinkles in the forehead, reduce scarring, and even reshape the chin and nose.

When Can I Expect Results From Fillers?

Both minimally invasive injectables and invasive surgeries can achieve satisfying, long-term results. However, some surgeries require an extensive recovery period.

Cosmetic fillers have a much faster turnaround time. These injectables require only a local anesthetic rather than general anesthesia. Our clients often see noticeable results immediately after their dermal filler treatment. You can expect to enjoy your new look and return to your routine with little or no downtime.

How Fast Do Results Appear, and How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last? 

Most patients see initial dermal filler results right away. Over a few weeks, the filler settles, and you can see your skin continue to improve.

How long do dermal fillers last? The results of fillers typically last between six and 12 months, but this timeline will vary based on the area or areas treated, the dermal filler you use, and lifestyle factors like your activity level. You can maintain your results over longer periods with regular follow-up treatments.
