Reduce Signs of Aging with Dermal Filler Injections in Pittsburgh
Have you been thinking about getting a dermal filler to help improve the signs of aging in your skin? Are you wondering what type of wrinkle reducers or injection is right for you? If your answer to either of those questions is “yes,” then we’re here to help! At Cosmetic Laser Centers, we offer many treatments to help improve the condition and appearance of your skin, including dermal fillers.
As we get older and our skin begins to show signs of aging, we all see a loss in volume in our skin. Most of this volume loss can be seen in the face, specifically by the nasolabial folds, which are the fold lines leading from the nose to the mouth. This volume loss can also be seen through the appearance of hollow cheeks and the thinning of the lips. Additionally, aging skin and volume loss can be seen in the tops of our hands. Volume loss in this area can negatively impact the appearance of hands, causing them to look bony and thin. So what can be done to help correct this natural aging of our skin? Dermal fillers!
Dermal fillers work by helping to improve this volume loss, which instantly softens the wrinkles in the skin by temporarily filling them in. If these wrinkle reducers sound appealing, then let us tell you more about your options for facial wrinkle fillers at Cosmetic Laser Centers.
The Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Injectable dermal fillers like Restylane® and Juvederm® are used to give the face a more youthful appearance around the eyes, mouth, and forehead. Dermal fillers are a facial wrinkle filler that specifically target folds, grooves, wrinkles, and overall volume loss in facial skin and hands.
- It improves the look of folds, grooves, and wrinkles
Wrinkle reducers like dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid (HA) work by being injected directly into the fold or wrinkle in the skin, filling the space and reducing the appearance of the wrinkle or fold. The most common use of dermal fillers is to treat nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth), marionette lines (lines from the corner of the lip to the chin), tear troughs under the eyes (sunken under eyes or dark circles), pucker lines, and the lips. A different type of dermal filler will be used depending on which area you are looking to improve the appearance of. This is because some HA dermal fillers are more volumizing than others, so one product may be preferable to another depending on the treatment area. Our medical staff at Cosmetic Laser Centers will work with you to determine which treatment option is best for you based on your personal needs and aesthetic goals.
- It improves overall skin volume in the face
Dermal fillers work to improve the common side effects that come with aging like volume loss to the mid-face, lack of definition along the jawline, and sunken or hollow cheeks. Both Restylane® and Juvederm® are two of the more volumizing fillers that can help solve this problem.
- It helps rejuvenate skin on the hands
Hands are often forgotten when it comes to anti-aging procedures. But just because hands are often overlooked, doesn’t mean that their appearance doesn’t matter. Our hands can undoubtedly reveal our age if we don’t take good care of them, and if they appear bony and thin, they can make us look much older than we really are. Lotion just isn’t enough. HA dermal fillers like Restylane® and Juvederm® can improve the appearance of the skin on our hands by making them smoother and more youthful looking.
Which Dermal Filler is Right for Me?
We offer two main types of dermal fillers for you to choose from, Restylane® and Juvederm®, which are both described below. Ultimately, the choice between using Restylane® or Juvederm® injections to correct your volume loss should be a decision made based on your skin needs, as well as a recommended treatment plan by our professionals after a consultation.

Restylane® Dermal FIller
You can fight the signs of facial aging and reveal a younger looking you with Restylane®! Restylane® is a clear gel formula with hyaluronic acid that works by acting like the hyaluronic acid that your body naturally produces, which tends to diminish as we age. For over 10 years Restylane® has been used safely in more than 65 countries. When used as a facial wrinkle filler, it helps to visibly improve moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds by adding volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane® can also be used to enhance and add volume to the lips in patients over 21 years old. Since the HA in Restylane® is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, no allergy testing is needed before use.
Juvederm® Dermal FIller
Juvederm® is similar to Restylane®. It is a facial wrinkle filler gel made from hyaluronic acid, but it’s manufactured by a different company. The collection of Juvederm® products is currently number one in the world and can be used to add volume to your lips, smooth lines, folds, and wrinkles, as well as to lift and contour cheeks. Since the hyaluronic acid in Juvederm® is long-lasting, it makes a great non-surgical option to add volume to your face. The patented Hylacross™ technology in Juvederm® helps it spread smoothly in the treatment area to achieve the results you are looking for. This technology also results in excellent durability, leading you to potentially need fewer treatments over time. On average, the treatment can last from six months to two years depending on your particular skin and treatment plan.
