Fillers Q & A

What do fillers do?

Fillers are injectable gel-textured substances that replace the missing volume in your face, lips, or hands. With age, your skin loses some of its fullness. This makes you look older and can even leave you more vulnerable to developing wrinkles and lines. 

To limit these signs of aging, dermal fillers physically restore volume and can even contain substances to help your skin hold hydration.

At Parkland Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, you can get fillers to:

  • Plump your cheeks
  • Diminish scars
  • Diminish lines or wrinkles
  • Plump your lips
  • Correct sunken eyes
  • Mildly lift your brows
  • Make your hands look younger
  • Improve facial symmetry

If you have other needs that Dr. Stephens deems appropriate for fillers, she’ll let you know during your consultation. Most fillers are a quick enough fix that you don’t need downtime and can enjoy the results immediately.

What types of fillers are available?

Parkland Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery boasts a menu of some of the most effective fillers available today. Dr. Stephens selects the best one for you based on your most pressing issues. You can choose from:

Revanesse® Versa™ 

Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid-based filler, meaning it helps your skin retain water to stay hydrated and plump. It’s particularly effective in treating lines and wrinkles for up to a year.


Restylane is a filler with hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient. You can select a filler from Restylane’s line to volumize your lips, hands, or cheeks while keeping a natural look.


Juvederm’s line of fillers uses hyaluronic acid to subtly lift or contour your face while alleviating some wrinkles and folds.

Am I a good candidate for fillers?

In order for Dr. Stephens to approve you for injectable fillers, she must review your medical history and assess your expectations of the treatment. You might be a candidate for dermal fillers if you:

  • Are 21 or older
  • Don’t smoke
  • Are in generally good health
  • Can commit to preparation and aftercare routines
  • Don’t scar easily

Some patients use fillers to test a new look before committing to a more permanent cosmetic surgery. Dr. Stephens is trained to make your results look as natural yet noticeable as possible.

To find out if you’re a candidate for a revamped look with hyaluronic acid fillers, call Parkland Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery or book your appointment online today.
