Dermal fillers are an injectable, minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that offer patients instant anti-aging results. They help add volume to sunken areas of the face, soften facial creases, and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.
They can also plump thin lips and significantly improve the appearance of recessed scars. Dr. Anthony Farole runs a full-time facial cosmetic surgery center in Bala Cynwyd, PA, where he offers clients a range of dermal filler treatments that address their cosmetic concerns.
Types of Dermal Fillers and How They Work
Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic treatments that boost the production of collagen and help to rejuvenate the skin. They get applied to treatment areas by Dr. Farole via an ultra-fine needle.
They work by adding volume to targeted areas of facial skin that have sunken or lost volume. Dermal fillers stimulate the production of collagen, the connective tissue that plumps the skin.
At your initial consultation, Dr. Farole will conduct a complete analysis of your face and discuss your cosmetic goals. He will then suggest a dermal filler that will offer the best outcome for your requirements. Two of the best dermal fillers include:
Juvederm® Family of Fillers
One of the most popular family of dermal fillers used by Dr. Farole is Juvederm®. They contain a hyaluronic acid base which helps your skin to retain moisture and add volume simultaneously.
Juvederm® dermal fillers are also lidocaine-enhanced to reduce discomfort during each cosmetic treatment. Dr. Farole will recommend a Juvederm® filler based on your specific requirements. The results from Juvederm® injectables last around 12 to 18 months.
Another effective dermal filler is BellaFill®. It’s an injectable made-up of small polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) ‘microspheres’ suspended in a smooth collagen gel base. BellaFill® is ideal for correcting skin damage caused by wrinkles or acne scars.
The microspheres in BellaFill® create a base that offers structural support to the skin, while the collagen provides instant volume and helps keep the skin moist and hydrated.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments that alleviate common facial skin concerns such as scarring, wrinkles, and lips that have lost volume. There is no surgery involved, and patients opting for dermal fillers will see instant results.
Another benefit of dermal fillers is patients don’t have to worry about downtime. You might feel slight soreness, tingling, or swelling at the injection sites. However, the effects are minimal and easy to manage, and they don’t last very long.
Each dermal filler session only takes around 30 minutes and gets performed as an outpatient procedure.
Am I a Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
If you wish to address sunken facial volume, wrinkles, and fine lines, or scar damage caused by acne, for example, you might be a good candidate for dermal fillers. Additionally, you should be physically healthy and ideally a non-smoker.
Candidates for dermal fillers should also have realistic expectations in mind and be committed to maintaining good skin health.
