What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a safe, non-surgical, and non-invasive solution for facial aging, plumping, or contouring. They can help increase definition in the skin’s contours, such as lifting the cheekbones or defining the jawline, eradicating wrinkles and creases, and providing a more radiant, youthful appearance. Many facial fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a compound that binds with water molecules to soften, plump, and rejuvenate the complexion. By carefully injecting filler into precise, predetermined points in the face, your innate attractive qualities can be beautifully defined.

Facial Filler Options at the Maercks Institute


Sculptra is actually a volumizer, although it is most often referred to as a facial filler. Made from synthetic poly-L-lactic acid, which is naturally produced by the body, Sculptra is designed to stimulate and increase collagen production over a longer period of time. Sculptra diminishes facial creases and gauntness through a series of three treatment sessions that are targeted to trigger higher and higher levels of collagen production. This restores volume to the face and leaves your skin looking younger, fuller, and smoother. Sculptra is particularly long-lasting, with results that can last up to two years.


Restylane is a family of facial fillers similar to Juvederm, made from a gel-like substance based on hyaluronic acid. This injectable is ideal for filling in the stubborn or deeper lines around the nose and mouth and providing volume to sunken cheeks or hollows. Restylane leaves you looking rejuvenated and refreshed, all with a single short treatment.


Radiesse is made with tiny spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, which helps to stimulate the body’s production of collagen. Collagen is the protein that gives youthful skin its supple luminosity and volume. Radiesse is used to plump the face and add volume to hollows, reduce lines, wrinkles, and folds, and build an underlying structure for the skin that allows you to look more radiant and youthful. Radiesse can last longer than dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid, with results often lasting up to 12 months.
