Dermal fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers or just fillers, add volume to areas of the face to restore our skin to a youthful fullness that we once had. These products can be highly beneficial to those that have had extreme fat loss or those with some depression underneath the eyes. Dr. Corey Hartman, who is a Board Certified Dermatologist, and his team at Skin Wellness Dermatology, offer a number of different fillers to reduce aging signs on the face, lips, and hands. For years his team has been serving the Birmingham AL community and providing professional dermal filler injections.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DERMAL AND INJECTABLE FILLERS
A common misconception is that Dermal and Injectable fillers are different types of fillers but the truth is that dermal filler treatments are delivered through injection. So in fact, they are one and the same.
TYPES OF DERMAL FILLERS WE OFFER
Restylane – Restores fullness and volume to the skin to get rid of some of those moderate to deep facial folds and wrinkles
Restylane Lyft– Restylane Lyft is an injectable gel used to treat wrinkles in the face. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane Defyne– As we get older, our skin isn’t as firm as it once was and it loses a bit of its elasticity. This causes the lines that run from the side of the nose toward the corners of the mouth to become more pronounced. Restylane Defyne is crafted with XpresHAn TechnologyTM to correct these deepened lines. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Defyne is also designed to help you achieve natural looking facial expressions and results that help maintain your natural movement.
Restylane Refyne- Restylane Refyne is a specifically formulated dermal filler made with XpresHAn TechnologyTM that helps correct line in the face and give a more natural look to your face. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane Refyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning and even puckering up.
Juvéderm – Juvéderm is great for restoring multiple problem areas in the face, such as vertical lip lines, smile lines, and wrinkles. It is the only HA (hyaluronic acid) dermal filler that has received FDA approval as lasting up to a year.
Voluma -Juvéderm Voluma XC is an FDA approved injection filler that restores the youthful fullness of the cheeks instantly. Voluma XC lasts up to two years and there is no downtime for natural looking results.
Volbella – Juvéderm Volbella XC is used in the lips to correct the wrinkles around the mouth. It leaves a smooth, natural look and achieves symmetry all in one comfortable treatment.
Vollure- Juvéderm Vollure XC softens parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth to produce subtle and long-lasting results for up to 18 months.
Belotero – Like other HA fillers, Belotero treats facial wrinkles and folds, but it is formulated for use closer to the surface of the skin. It is excellent for superficial fine lines where the skin is thin, such as around the eyes and mouth.
There is no single right solution for every patient, the area to be treated, age and skin condition affect the choice of which product, or combination of products would be the best choice. In addition to our hyaluronic acid based fillers, we also offer Radiesse and Sculptra.
Radiesse – This water-based gel contains minuscule calcium microspheres, which are similar to naturally occurring minerals in our body. Radiesse adds fullness immediately, and stimulates the natural production of collagen, providing results lasting a year or more for many patients.
Sculptra – The main ingredient in this subtle treatment for shallow to deep facial folds and wrinkles is biocompatible poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra provides subtle results that develop over time, rejuvenating your appearance gradually by helping replace lost collagen. Others will not know you have had an enhancement; they will just notice you are looking more youthful.
