 Indications for Facial Fillers

Facial Filler Indications MA

 All natural cosmetic dermal fillers are designed to restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the lines from the outside of the nose to the mouth.) 

 Fillers are used most commonly for Cosmetic Procedures involving:

  • Naso-Labial Folds-the lines from the nose to the corners of the lips

  • Cheeks 

  • Mouth and Lower Face-"marionette" lines from the corners of the mouth toward the chin.

  • Lip Enhancement -> learn more

Other areas include: Earlobes, Tear troughs,  to correct deformities in the Bridge of the Nose, Jaw Line  and Hands.

 Types of Fillers

There are several types and brands of facial fillers.   During your consultation you and the physician can decide which filler is right for you, depending on the area being treated and your particular anatomy.

 Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers

These are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful fullness and contours to the skin. Fillers are injected to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). These fillers are smooth- consistency gels made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin. These fillers provide a smooth natural look and feel.

They are made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin.

Studies have shown that the average treatment lasts six months or even longer. They contain a unique technology that helps to maintain the effect until the injected material is almost gone.  Additional studies have shown that the effect can last up to 18 months following a specific protocal. 

Restylane and Juvederm are the two most widely used fillers and are appropriate for most indications.

Calcium-Based Fillers

Calcium-based microspheres is another type of filler. This category of filler can last upwards of twelve months, and is best suited for deep dermal injections and may require administration of some local anesthetic prior to treatment. 

Radiesse MA


Radiesse is made of calcium-based micro spheres suspended in a water based gel. It is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure giving you immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and providing long-lasting and beautiful results.


"There are so many choices.  How do I decide which filler is best for me?"

There is no need to decide which filler you prefer before your appointment. During your consultation, you and your clinician will decide which filler is right for you depending on factors such as the location of the area to be treated, the depth of the wrinkles, your age and other factors.
