Rejuvenate & Renew Without Surgery
Dermal facial fillers are used for lines caused by repetitive muscle movements. This repetitive use of facial muscles results in dynamic wrinkles–wrinkles that become static and more evident over time as we age.
Renaissance Plastic Surgery offers several different types of dermal fillers in St. Peters, MO to smooth out and plump these types of facial wrinkles. These dermal fillers work by boosting your skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid (HA) to add volume and diminish wrinkles, resulting in a revitalized and more youthful appearance.

Radiesse works by helping your body work for its own benefit. When you get injected with Radiesse, the calcium hydroxylapatite ingredient sends cues to your body to produce more natural collagen at the injection site, resulting in natural volume increases and reducing wrinkles as a result of the added volume.
One of the areas that is most impacted by the aging process is the mouth. Vertical lines form on and around the lips, the lips lose volume, and you’re left with a look that maybe doesn’t quite feel like you when you look in the mirror.

Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and cheeks can be treated with Juvederm Vollure. This filler is most effective when used to improve the appearance of marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
Dermal Filler FAQs:
What Areas of the Face Can Dermal Fillers Be Applied To?
While different types of dermal fillers are used to target different areas of the face, in general, dermal fillers can be applied to the forehead, cheeks, undereye, nose, area around the mouth, lips, chin, and jaw. Dermal fillers are used to add volume, plumpness, and improved shape to the face. Doing this can also eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, making it a procedure that leaves patients looking younger, more radiant, and fresh.
How Long Will My Dermal Fillers Last?
Depending on the type of material that is used in your selected dermal filler, the lifespan of your filler can vary, but most dermal fillers last at least three to four months. Dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid can last between six to twelve months.
To help keep your dermal fillers looking full and lasting longer, some patients implement the following into their lifestyles:
- Reducing time outside and exposure to the sun
- Wear sunscreen daily
- Stay hydrated
- Eat a balanced diet
- Avoid over-exercising
- Incorporating retinol into their skin routine
- Being gentle with the area that has dermal filler
It is recommended that patients revisit their doctors at Renaissance Plastic Surgery for refills and restorations for dermal fillers that have dissolved in order to maintain their desired appearance. The frequency at which you will need to get dermal fillers depends on your aesthetic goals, but for most patients, this is typically every four to six months.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are recommended for patients looking to improve the appearance of their face, restore volume, or eliminate early signs of aging. The ideal candidate for dermal fillers are patients who are in overall good health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the appearance of their results.
While we recommend fillers for patients above 18 years old, children who may need dermal fillers can do so with parental consent. If you suffer from bleeding disorders, fungal or bacterial infections, or are allergic to the materials used in dermal fillers, this procedure may not be right for you.
Are There Any Risks With Dermal Fillers?
Just like any other facial treatment procedure, dermal fillers can come with a few side effects and risks. These include:
- Filler migration
However, under the supervision and guidance of our highly experienced staff, these side effects can be easily managed and even avoided completely. Complications with dermal fillers are typically avoided as our staff places a high priority on precision, quality, and patient comfort during each treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
From restoring volume to the face to achieve a more youthful, plump look to providing more structure in the chin and jaw area, the benefits of dermal fillers can lead to an increase in patient confidence as it helps them achieve their aesthetic goals. As the top non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation, dermal fillers allow patients to look how they want without the pain, recovery time, or complications that come from surgery. Not only does it help balance, improve, and rejuvenate the appearance of their face, but it can also lead patients to higher self-esteem.
