Time and age can cause the face to lose fatty tissues and, as a result, to lose facial volume. You may notice this almost anywhere on the face, from hollowness around the cheeks and eyes to thinner lips and deeper nasolabial folds. At Levy Dermatology, we offer a wide variety of dermal fillers to restore this lost volume and give you back a more youthful appearance.

What Causes Facial Volume Loss?

Losing facial volume due to age happens to most people. The skin’s support network of fat and collagen breaks down with age, leaving the skin with less fullness and less support. This can lead to skin that looks loose and areas of the face that look hollow or less full than they used to. 

How Do Dermal Fillers Work for Facial Volume Loss?

Dermal fillers act by plumping and lifting the areas of lost facial volume. While some act immediately, others can take several weeks to start seeing results. 

Juvederm® Family of Fillers

These fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a molecule that bonds with moisture and pulls it into the skin, adding volume and hydration. The family has a filler for almost every area of the face, from the lips and chin to around the eyes. 

Restylane® Family of Fillers

These hyaluronic acid fillers also offer a variety of formulas so your provider can find the one that will work best for you. While they are similar to Juvederm®, many providers prefer one over the other depending on the application. 


This formula consists of microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite, a material already found in the body and a powerful collagen stimulator. Instead of seeing results right away, you will need to wait several weeks, but results can last up to two years. 


This hyaluronic acid filler specializes in nasolabial folds, the deep creases that run from the corners of the nose to the edges of the mouth. Its special texture makes it well-suited for this particular application. 

How are Dermal Fillers Different From Botox®?

Both Botox® and dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but they work differently. Botox® interferes with signals between nerves and muscles, so the muscles causing expression lines and wrinkles can relax. Dermal fillers treat lines and wrinkles by filling in the lost facial volume beneath the skin, lifting it, and filling the wrinkles from beneath. Both work well for different types of lines and wrinkles.

Recovery and Results from Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers require no downtime. Results of hyaluronic acid fillers will appear almost right away, but other types of fillers may require a wait before you can see your full results. 


You will see fuller, more lifted features that have all the facial volume you thought had been lost forever. Depending on the area of treatment, you will see increased volume and plumpness. Your results can last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the type of filler.
