Having smooth, supple skin around the facial area is a sure sign of youth and energy. However, as we age, the skin on your face can start to sag and the fatty tissue beneath your skin can break down. This leaves you with more wrinkles than you’re used to seeing and detracting from a youthful glow. Dermal fillers are able to give back the smooth wrinkle-free look we associate with youth and provide a non-surgical solution for navigating the effects of aging.
Dermal fillers refer to a variety of different products that can be used to fill in deep lines in the skin and add fullness to the face, and definition to the lips and cheeks. For clients in the Miami area seeking a professional solution for smooth skin, LifeGaines Med Spa Boca Raton is your premier option for all of your aesthetic needs.

Types of Dermal Fillers
There are several types of dermal fillers trusted by Dr. Gaines and our team of medical professionals. Each type of filler offers different overall benefits and lasts for varying amounts of time so we are able to cater to your specific needs and areas of concern.
Juvederm is a brand name used to reference a variety of dermal fillers that uses hyaluronic acid to plump and refill the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the soft connective tissues of your body. In its natural state, the body uses hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm is used the same way, providing the skin with a healthy, well-hydrated look and feel, with results that can last up to a year.
Your doctor can inject Juvederm into the face along with the help of anesthetic lidocaine to help reduce any discomfort associated with the injection.
Restylane is perfect for vegan or environmentally-conscious individuals as it is free from any animal products. Restylane filler is also hyaluronic acid-based. Like Juvederm, Restylane filler is hyaluronic acid-based and works with the body by using a substance already found in the skin. This filler plumps areas of the skin that have collapsed or sagged and has also been known to decrease wrinkles.
Restylane requires no allergy testing and is safe for allergy-prone skin, and the effects of Restylane can last up to 6 months.
Radiesse Dermal Filler
Radiesse is a dermal filler that uses calcium instead of hyaluronic acid. Because Radiesse uses calcium to plump and reforms the skin, it also provides another layer of protection to keep wrinkles away. This dermal filler encourages your skin’s own collagen to fill the area of application. This treatment is so effective, it is even safe to use on the hands!
Treatment results with this type of filler are immediately visible and get even better over time. As your skin reacts to the calcium in this dermal filler, it continues producing collagen for several months and can extend results up to one year creating healthy, youthful-looking skin that lasts.

The Dermal Filler Process
- First, we clean the injection area and apply an anesthetic agent to help reduce any discomfort.
- Then, the injections are applied. This process itself usually only takes a few moments on each area you want to see improved.
- Once you and your doctor are happy with the results, you’ll be ready to leave the office. You might experience some minor swelling and discomfort immediately after the procedure. However, you can alleviate side effects with the use of an ice pack.
