Introduction to Dermal Fillers

At our boutique practice in Lake Mary, just north of Orlando, dermal fillers are our most popular non-surgical treatment. Injectable fillers for the face, also known as dermal fillers, are formulated to address common signs of aging, such as wrinkles, folds, and areas that appear to be sunken. They produce a fuller, softer, more attractive appearance that can last for several months.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are yet another type of non-surgical cosmetic procedure with a minimum downtime, addressing facial conditions due to the natural aging process. As we age, our faces naturally lose the underlying fat and the skin starts to stretch out, resulting in not just deeper wrinkles and folds, but a sunken and hollow appearance. FDA-approved dermal fillers injected into the cheeks and other areas aid in diminishing facial lines and folds and restoring volume and fullness to the face. Dermal fillers can also be used as lip injections to plump thin lips. Results from facial fillers vary, depending on the type of filler used, the facial area to be treated, and, of course, the skill of the injecting physician.

Facial fillers may be used to treat:

  • Hollowed areas of the face, such as sunken cheeks
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds (deep wrinkles from the corners of the nose to the mouth) parentheses/smile lines
  • Thin lips and Vertical Lip Lines (aka smoker’s lines or pucker lines)
  • Under-eye circles
  • Volume loss in the chin and jaw area

What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Our Dermal Filler patients in the Orlando area have been able to enjoy the following benefits from their treatments:

  • Customizable and combinable with other treatments
  • It has almost no recovery time
  • Immediate results
  • Improved collagen and elastin production
  • Little risks involved
  • Long-lasting results
  • Scar appearance can be reduced
  • Subtle effects

What Dermal Fillers Are Available at Soma Plastic Surgery?

There are a variety of brands and different formulations of dermal fillers and lip injections on the market. At Soma Plastic Surgery, we offer multiple types of facial fillers. These are some of our most popular fillers:

Juvederm Ultra Plus

Often called the “natural filler” since it is made up of hyaluronic acid, a natural component of human skin, Juvederm Ultra Plus replaces volume, fills in, and smooths facial wrinkles and folds. It can effectively correct smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles, and is also used as a lip injection for thin lips. Approved by FDA to last up to 1 year.

Juvederm Voluma XC

The first FDA-approved dermal filler to treat volume loss in the cheek area and the only filler proven to last up to 2 years, Juvederm Voluma XC is a non-surgical and long-lasting cheek lift, resulting in enhanced contour and a fuller, youthful face with minimal downtime.

Juvederm Vollure XC

The first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds that is proven to last up to 18 months. Essentially, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, but with long-lasting results.

Juvederm Volbella XC

Exclusively designed for the treatment of thin lips and vertical lip lines; the first and only dermal filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to 1 year. The Juvederm lip injection produces instant and natural-looking results.


Radiesse is a calcium-based long-term dermal filler that can last up to a year. Calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel are injected into the skin. Once injected, Radiesse works below the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen, which not only fills in wrinkles and folds but replenishes lost volume due to aging. It is recommended for moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles such as smile lines, marionette lines, and sunken cheeks.

These dermal fillers are sometimes used in conjunction with Botox to achieve optimal rejuvenation results. See below for more information on this technique, which is known as the “liquid facelift” procedure.

Who are the Best Candidates for the Dermal Fillers procedure?

You could be a great candidate for Dermal Fillers if you have the following characteristics:

  • In good general health
  • Keep a positive attitude throughout treatment and recovery
  • Looking to re-contour your lower facial region
  • Maintain realistic expectations from the results
  • You want to add volume to and smooth out the back of your hands
  • You want to reduce deep folds and creases such as Marionette lines or Nasolabial folds (aka parentheses lines)

Although appropriate for all skin types and ethnicities, this injectable should be avoided if you have active skin problems such as cysts, rashes, cold sores, or pimples. You may need to reconsider this treatment if you have a history of allergic responses, particularly gram-positive bacterial protein allergies.

What’s the First Step?

If you are in the Lake Mary or Orlando area and are interested in Dermal Fillers, your first step is to schedule a consultation at Soma Plastic Surgery. When you come in, you will meet with either Dr. Papanicolaou or one of our talented Injectors, your face and lips will be assessed, and you’ll be presented with a number of options and cosmetic treatment solutions to help you look your best.

Your provider will answer any questions and address any concerns you may have about the treatment, as well as ask you questions regarding your medical history and lifestyle. Please be open and honest when having this discussion because not only will it produce the best results, but will also help prevent any unnecessary risks.

After the two of you have discussed every aspect of your Dermal Filler treatment, a customized treatment plan will be made for you. If you choose, your fillers can be performed immediately after your consultation, however, if you’d like to reschedule for any reason, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you select the best day and time for you.

What to Expect on the Day of Dermal Fillers

On the day of your Lip Filler treatment at Soma Plastic Surgery, you can expect a comfortable and straightforward experience. After being made comfortable in our reclining treatment chair, your injector will clean your skin with an antiseptic solution to ensure you are free from bacteria and contaminants. A topical numbing cream may also be applied to minimize discomfort during the injection process. Next, the chosen Filler will be injected using a very fine needle, assessed, and more is added when necessary. Your provider will lightly massage the filler around so that it’s evenly distributed.

The entire process typically takes about 30 – 60 minutes to complete and you will be able to see significant results instantly.

Dermal Fillers Recovery

There is almost no downtime required after this procedure and there are no known long-term side effects. You may experience bruising and minor swelling. Results are not permanent but can last up to 9 months. Additional treatments can be repeated when necessary but should be evident as your facial features begin losing volume.
