Also called fillers, soft tissue fillers, or soft tissue augmentation, dermal fillers restore our skin’s youthful fullness that is lost as we age. Dr. Corey Hartman, who is a Board Certified Dermatologist, and his team at Skin Wellness Dermatology, offer a number of different hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to reduce aging signs on the face, lips, and hands without the need for plastic surgery. With our wide selection, we can perform the following dermal filler procedures:
- Rejuvenate facial contours by restoring volume to the cheeks, hollows under the eyes, and deep folds.
- Reduce the appearance of scars.
- Eliminate fine lines such as crow’s feet and increase facial volume.
- Add fullness to the lips and restore volume.
- Lift a downturned mouth or lift the brows.
- Restore a more youthful appearance to the hands.
Restylane and Juvéderm dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body. It is found in high concentrations in our joints and connective tissues, acting as a network to carry nutrients to our skin cells. When injected, the gel adds volume to the tissues and facial structures and draws water to the skin’s surface, keeping it looking supple and fresh.
What is the Difference Between Dermal and Injectable Fillers
Dermal filler treatments are delivered via an injection, which is why they are sometimes referred to as injectable fillers. However, injectable and dermal fillers are one and the same.
Replace lost volume, fill out thin lips and smooth lines, and reduce many signs of aging without any plastic surgery or surgical procedure with a dermal filler injectable treatment by a Board Certified Dermatologist at Skin Wellness Center.
Types of Dermal Fillers, or Soft Tissue Fillers, We Offer
There are several hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, or HA fillers, on the market and available in our clinic. Restore volume and reduce smile lines and wrinkles with any one of the following injectable filler treatments.

Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face and hands. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks, midface area, and the back of the hands to help complete your aesthetic look — for face and hands.

Restylane® Defyne – Crafted with XpresHAn Technology™, Restylane® Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) and reduce signs of aging. Using innovative cross-linking technology, Restylane Defyne is a dermal filler that is able to help restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain your natural expressions. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and the lines that run from the sides of the nose toward the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) 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 support your facial expressions—for natural-looking results that help maintain your natural movement.
