What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a cosmetic dermatology treatment that provides a safe, non-surgical approach to smoothing facial lines, filling out wrinkles, and addressing facial scarring using a natural, non-toxic substance.
Dermal Fillers FAQs
Learn more about dermal fillers by reviewing our board-certified dermatologists’ answers to the most common questions regarding dermal fillers in Lebanon, Tennessee.
Dermal fillers are made of non-toxic substances, the most common being hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and polyalkylimide. At Cumberland Skin, we primarily use hyaluronic acid as a filler substance. It is non-toxic, hydrating, and already naturally found in the skin, reducing the risk of an adverse reaction.
As we age, collagen and elastin fibers naturally deplete and weaken. Additionally, years of smiling, frowning, laughing, and squinting can further weaken these supportive fibers. This results in sagging skin, superficial facial lines, and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers work by injecting a non-toxic substance to replace lost volume and smooth out the skin by filling out superficial lines and deep folds.
No. While both are injectable treatments, Botox and dermal fillers are very different. Botox works by freezing the muscles to prevent the formation of age signs, while dermal fillers replace lost volume and “fill out” fine lines and wrinkles. Both, however, reduce signs of aging and help clients achieve a more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are used to help clients achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance by smoothing out fine lines, correcting deep wrinkles, adding volume to certain facial features (such as the cheekbones or lips), or filling out acne scars.
The most common locations dermal fillers are used include:
- Jaw Area
- Around the Mouth

Furthermore, many dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid as a filler substance. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body, which reduces the risk of any adverse effects.
The effects of dermal fillers can last anywhere from three months to several years. However, results depend on the type of dermal filler substance used, the individual’s rate of metabolization, and where the dermal fillers are placed.
For example, dermal fillers administered into the lips won’t last as long as dermal fillers placed in the neck.
At Cumberland Skin, our providers use Restylane® and Juvederm®. Both are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers and provide long-lasting, smooth, natural-looking results.
