Dermal Fillers

At My Skin, we understand that aging gracefully involves embracing your natural beauty while addressing the subtle changes that come with time. Dermal fillers, also known as injectable fillers, are a versatile cosmetic procedure that can effectively restore lost volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance facial features like the lips and cheeks.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Beyond just plumping pouts, Kysse is a versatile hyaluronic acid (HA) filler designed for natural-looking enhancements across your face. Think of it as your artistic sculptor, not just for lips, but for subtle tweaks and refinements!

Radiesse stands out from the hyaluronic acid filler crowd with its unique calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microsphere formula. Imagine a two-in-one beauty boost: immediate lift and smoothing from the CaHA microspheres filling in wrinkles like nasolabial folds and marionette lines, plus long-term collagen production as your body embraces the CaHA and starts building its own collagen for lasting volume (up to a year or more!).

Bellafill stands apart from the crowd with its collagen-infused, PMMA microsphere combo. Imagine a long-lasting duo: instant wrinkle filling from the collagen and PMMA microspheres, plus continuous collagen stimulation for up to 5 years! This unique blend tackles deep wrinkles like nasolabial folds and even treats certain acne scars, making it a versatile choice.

Sculptra takes a different approach, acting as your skin's secret collagen coach. Imagine a biocompatible poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) gel injected subtly beneath your skin, stimulating your own collagen production over time. Think of it as planting tiny seeds that gradually sprout into natural volume and smoother texture.

Versa dermal fillers are like your skin's personal sculpting tools, offering a versatile mix of hyaluronic acid (HA) magic for natural-looking enhancements across your face. Imagine a range of smooth, cross-linked HA gels designed to

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are made of a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally found in the body. HA binds to water and attracts moisture, which helps to plump and hydrate the skin. When injected into the skin, dermal fillers work by filling in the spaces between collagen and elastin fibers, providing support and volume to the skin.

If you’re looking to restore volume and smoothen out your skin, you may want to consider dermal fillers. It can be overwhelming when you’re making your choice in a filler because there are so many that you can choose from. It’s important to understand what each filler can offer so that you can get the results that you’re looking for.
