As we age, our faces lose soft tissue volume in our cheeks and our lips, and signs of aging like wrinkles and lines can appear. While it may seem like this is inevitable, you don’t have to settle for aging skin. Dermal filler treatments at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz can help you restore youth and volume to your face once more.
Dermal fillers are made with various components, the most common of which is hyaluronic acid, a compound found naturally in the body that allows your skin to be elastic and full. Oftentimes, signs of aging occur when the amount of hyaluronic acid is too low. When injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid acts quickly to restore facial volume. Depending on the treatment used, it can improve volume in your cheeks, lips, or decrease the appearance of lines.
The most common areas where dermal fillers are used include:
Because hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, nearly anyone with aging concerns is a candidate for dermal fillers. Dr. Schwartz and the Premier Vein team will work with you to determine which dermal filler is best for you.

We offer a number of dermal filler injections to keep you looking younger without extensive surgery or downtime! Click any of the below to learn more about one of these injectables:
BELOTERO BALANCE®: BELOTERO BALANCE® is one of the lighter, more delicate dermal fillers available and is used to minimize fine lines around the lips, corner of the mouth, nasolabial folds, under the eyes and minor marionette lines (lines from the corners of your mouth down toward your jawline). Its lower density makes it an ideal option for filling the finest of lines and wrinkles.
RADIESSE®: RADIESSE® was the first dermal filler FDA-approved for use both in the face and hands. This injectable smooths moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds with long lasting results. It uses calcium-based microspheres, which are suspended in a water-based, gel-like solution, and stimulate your body to produce collagen, which is a protein that occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for skin’s strength and elasticity.
Restylane®: Restylane® is an FDA-approved cosmetic dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to help restore volume to facial features for long-lasting results. It can help smooth laugh lines (nasolabial folds), add volume to the cheeks and plump the lips. It’s also a popular treatment to address dark under-eye circles.
Versa™: Versa™ is one of the newest FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that can be used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds with remarkable results. Not all dermal fillers are created equal, but Versa’s remarkably homogeneous filler is due to advanced technology and a proprietary formula, which means that its particles are uniquely spherical and uniform, providing the perfect balance between smoothness and volume.
Patients can expect to see a notable improvement in their facial volume or in the appearance of their facial lines, with full results noticeable after any swelling subsides – usually within a week. Results will be dependent upon which filler treatment they receive with most lasting between 6-12 months,, and the amount of volume replaced.
Dermal filler treatments do not require any downtime, although many of them may include some swelling or bruising at the injection site or irregularities in the filling (eg – firmness of your skin).
