All You Need to Know About Dermal Fillers

As we continue to age, dermal fillers can be a powerful weapon in the fight against potential signs of aging. Dermal fillers provide an effective but temporary cosmetic treatment that helps restore plumpness and shape to areas that have become hollow or have lost volume over time.

At ReVive RX Med Spa in Kansas City, MO, we specialize in dermal filler treatments, and our qualified experts can help you select the right dermal filler for your individual needs. With dermal filler treatments becoming increasingly popular in recent years, many individuals can not only slow down aging effects but actively combat them using this professional medical intervention.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables designed to help smooth out wrinkles and give your skin a youthful appearance. These soft-tissue fillers typically contain hyaluronic acid (HA) as their main ingredient, but other types of dermal fillers use collagen or calcium hydroxyapatite. The HA in these products binds with water molecules in the skin and helps it stay hydrated while adding volume where needed.

How Can Dermal Fillers Help Your Skin?

Dermal fillers can be used in various ways on different parts of the face. They can be injected into lips to plump them up, into cheeks for extra fullness, and around the eyes for a smoother appearance. They can also be used on other body areas where the skin is thinning due to aging or sun damage. In general, dermal filler injections can make you look younger by improving the overall structure of your facial features and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles or hollows beneath them. 

What Are the Different Types of Dermal Fillers We Provide? 

Dermal fillers have become increasingly popular for their non-invasive capacity to give natural-looking results that enhance facial features instantly. But before delving into why people are considering this approach, it is essential to understand what precisely dermal fillers are and how their effectiveness differs when using different types of substances:  


Belafill is a revolutionary product that allows users to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, also known as laugh lines or smile lines. Furthermore, this useful treatment may also help improve scarring from acne, which affects people of all ages. 


Belotero usually smooths the appearance of wrinkles in the mid-face, even nasolabial folds.


Radiesse works for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (i.e., nasolabial folds) and the back of your hands.


Restylane can add volume to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. 

Revanesse Versa

Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (laugh lines).

Revanesse Versa+ and Lips+

Revanesse Versa+ is specifically formulated for facial contouring and can help reduce eye trough area under the eyes, replenish cheek volume loss, diminish laugh lines (nasolabial folds), and soften marionette lines. Revanesse Lips+ is made to augment thin lips and smooth lipstick lines (perioral) while restoring a natural-looking lip shape.

RHA Collection        

Revance and Teoxane have collaborated to create the RHA Collection, a remarkable line of dermal fillers carefully crafted to mimic our body’s natural hyaluronic acid production. The collection includes RHA 2 for enhancing lips or smoothening small lines; RHA 3, which reduces deep wrinkles such as nasolabial folds; and the highly potent RHA 4 explicitly designed for rejuvenating the lower face by targeting even deeper wrinkles.


Sculptra is most commonly injected to reduce the appearance of smile lines, marionette lines, and wrinkles around the chin.

What Is the Treatment Process Like for Dermal Fillers?

If dermal fillers are on your agenda, the first step is to come in for a consultation. We will assess your areas of concern and decide which type of filler would most benefit you. 

We understand that injections can cause discomfort, so we offer a topical numbing solution before treatment. It ensures patients have a painless and easy experience. Afterward, one can resume daily activities reasonably quickly with no lingering effects; dermal fillers take a few minutes to administer.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last? 

The longevity of dermal filler results depends mostly on which type was used during treatment; some last 6 months, while others may last up to 2 years, depending on your unique situation—generally speaking. However, most people will need routine touch-up sessions every few months to maintain their desired long-term effects—so bear this in mind when deciding if this is an option for you.

What Makes You a Candidate for Dermal Fillers? 

Dermal fillers are a revolutionary, long-lasting solution for those looking to restore volume and increase fullness in the skin. The decision to pursue dermal filler treatment should be made only after being able to consult with a professional who can guide and provide advice on what is best for the individual. 

It is important to remember that dermal fillers are not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers, nor are they ideal for people with a known sensitivity or allergy to one of its ingredients.
