Dermal fillers are products used to restore volume loss in the face, neck, and body.
Most dermal fillers on the market use a hyaluronic acid (HA) base to mimic the body’s natural version of HA. Each version has slightly different properties giving it a unique ability to restore volume in your face and body. These properties determine how soft the product is, how easy it is to mold into an area, and how long a product will last.  
At Personal MD Wellness & Aesthetics, we offer a variety of dermal fillers, including Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvaderm Ultra XC Plus, Volluma, Vollure, and Vobella. There are many uses for dermal filler products. However, they are most commonly used to restore cheek volume, soften the shadows under the eyes, soften smile lines around the nose and mouth, soften marionette lines under the mouth, restore and enhance lip volume, and remold the chin and jawline.  
Dr. Simmons is our lead injector and listens to your concerns, evaluates your aesthetic needs, and recommends a custom treatment plan unique to you. He does not believe that one treatment plan or product is suitable for everyone. We encourage you to trust in his twenty years of medical experience, skill, and the constant pursuit of the latest cosmetic advances to achieve your natural beauty

FAQs about Toxins

Filler injections can help adult patients improve their appearance.  Fillers help give a more youthful fascial structure and alleviate an overly tired appearance. The areas treated most commonly are those where you lose facial volume, such as nasal labial folds (a.k.a. "smile lines"), shadows under the eyes, restoring cheek volume, and improving the appearance of the lips, including reducing "smoker's lines." There are many other "off-label" areas that fillers are used. If you are wondering if fillers are the correct product to reach your aesthetic goal, schedule a consult today.

Each filler is unique and used to enhance different areas of the face and body.  Some attract more water giving a more plump look to enhance areas such as lips and nasolabial folds.  Others tend to be more firm to enhance areas such as the cheek, chin, and jawline.  The difference between the fillers lies in their formulation, which influences how much water is absorbed and how long it will last under the skin. 

Which product and how much product to use is a decision your injector will discuss with you.  We feel knowing the nuances of the different products highlights the importance of having a skilled injector as one of your top priority when deciding to use fillers.

Dr. Simmons has been using dermal fillers for over 15 years and can help you decide which product is best to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

Physical downtime from the procedure: none.  Social downtime from the procedure: 1 week of downtime is typical due to bruising.  Dermal fillers are given deeper than Botox injections and often result in mild to moderate bruising.  In most cases, bruising can be covered with makeup but never get a filler less than two weeks before an important event.

We ask our patients to sleep on their backs for a few days when they get their filler.

With rare exceptions, most people are a candidate to try a filler.  These HA products have been extensively studied and are very natural.  Your doctor will review your medical history to ensure there is no apparent reasons you should avoid getting a filler treatment.

Yes.  The Hylaruandase enzyme can melt the filler.  This particular enzyme is most commonly used in the first 24 hours after injection in case of an unexpected complication from your procedure.  Your injector should always have an ample amount of Hylaruandase on hand in case of emergencies.  

Your cost includes the price of the product and the skill and expertise of your injector.  We recommend choosing an injector that is certified and experienced with dermal fillers.

Dr. Simmons has over fifteen years of injection experience, is certified by Allergan and Galderma, and teaches new injectors techniques he has learned over the years.
