All About Injectable Fillers

Nobody likes to see the first signs of aging popping up on their face. Maybe you’ve noticed some pesky forehead lines, or deep wrinkles, or perhaps your cheeks are looking a bit sunken. Injectable dermal fillers, Botox, and Kybella are great injectable filler options for those who wish to improve their deeper wrinkles without going under the knife. Read on to learn more about Heartland Plastic’s treatment options and what they can do for you.


Injectable fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma can help to address common signs of aging, including loss of youthful facial volume, lines, and wrinkles. Both of these types of dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that attracts and binds water under the skin to restore volume. Dermal filler procedures are relatively the same, but while Juvederm is often used to treat smile lines and add volume to the lips, Voluma is formulated to restore lost volume in the mid-face and cheek area. Hyaluronic acid filler is long-lasting– Juvederm results last for about one year, and results from Voluma can last up to two years in the cheek area.


Botox is an injectable treatment that is used to soften the appearance of lines and facial wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, and at the corners of the eyes. Unlike dermal filler injections, Botox is made up of Botulinum toxin type A, which works by temporarily blocking nerve signals that cause facial muscles to contract. Results from Botox can last from 3-6 months before a repeat treatment is needed– the Botox formula can smooth wrinkles but cannot restore volume.


Kybella is an injectable treatment that is used to eliminate a double chin. It is made up of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Unlike a dermal filler procedure, when Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys fat cells, resulting in a slimmer chin and neck profile. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they cannot return, so the results are long-lasting. Usually, two or more treatments a month apart are needed for a more youthful appearance.
