Injectable Dermal Fillers, Sculptra®, and Kybella®
Learn about injectable dermal fillers
Did you know that volume loss is responsible for most of tell-tale aging signs like wrinkles, thinning lips and sagging? As the skin and tissue thins, lines become more pronounced making them more noticeable around the nose, mouth and eyes. Cheeks begin to look a hollow, jowls appear, and eyelids begin to droop.
Dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm® products can help replace lost volume, smoothing wrinkles, plumping lips, and restoring a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

While dermal fillers are casually known as “wrinkle fillers,” they can do much more than just smooth out wrinkles, although they are excellent at this too! Here are a few of the common issues dermal fillers can help address:
- Smooth out lines around nose and mouth (a.k.a. marionette lines, smile lines-nasolabial folds, and parentheses)
- Enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples
- Diminish vertical lip lines
- Plump & enhance the lips
- Smooth out chin creases and add volume to the chin
- Improve symmetry among facial features including the jawline
- Help to reestablish facial structure
- Improve the appearance of jowls
- Improve the appearance of undereye hollows
Over the years, your face loses fullness due to the natural breakdown of collagen as you get older. For men and women who want to fill in lost facial volume to attain a more youthful appearance, injectable dermal fillers are a popular nonsurgical option. The expert team at Summers Aesthetics is pleased to offer a lineup of customizable dermal fillers from both the Juvederm® and Restylane® line. During your consultation, we can recommend the right products to meet your specific goals. Contact our medspa in Louisville, Kentucky at 502-305-5056 to book a consultation with our team.
When selecting a provider for injectable treatments, give your decision the same level of care and scrutiny that you would for a surgical procedure. Non-surgical dermal filler treatment is a medical procedure that requires specific training, knowledge and skill to ensure safe treatment and natural-looking results. Choose a provider with an extensive knowledge of facial anatomy that offers evidence-based treatments that align with your aesthetic goals.
With so many dermal filler products on the market, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you without an experienced provider’s guidance. Each product is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density, and injection depth, which means that certain fillers work better for certain areas of concern. While your provider will determine what product is best for you, the following diagram illustrates in general where cosmetic surgeons tend to apply certain products:
How long the effects of dermal fillers will last depends on the product, the area of treatment, and the patient. Generally speaking, the denser the product is and the more deeply it is injected, the longer it will last, although this is not a hard and fast rule. To maintain your results, your provider will simply repeat treatment as needed, adjusting the amount and techniques necessary to ensure optimal results.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers tend to be the most temporary and commonly utilized option, and therefore are often recommended for patients. These will typically last from 12-24 months depending on the product used. Injections to the lips will typically have less longevity than those to the nasolabial folds, jawline and cheeks. Certain HA fillers, such as Juvederm Voluma®, are formulated to last longer, but are usually limited to certain areas, such as the cheeks.
