Dermal Fillers

What Do Dermal Fillers Do?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected into and under the skin for cosmetic enhancements. Dermal fillers are one of the most popular and effective treatments to improve signs of aging, correct skin and tissue irregularities, and improve facial contours.  

What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Deep folds
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Weak or undefined features
  • Facial disproportion
  • Volume loss
  • Scars and tissue deformities

Why Dermal Fillers?

  • Fully reversible treatment option (for hyaluronic acid fillers)
  • Safe and effective for all skin types
  • Minimally invasive
  • Little to no downtime
  • Immediate results

Whether the goal is achieving a more rejuvenated and rested appearance or simply improving facial balance and harmony, dermal fillers are one of the most popular and effective options available. These injectables can help correct the volume loss that almost always occurs with aging and help reduce the appearance of folds, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Additionally, when there is a facial disproportion, such as a weak chin or cheekbones that do not project well, injectable fillers can make major aesthetic improvements and greatly improve facial harmony. Patients can also choose to have dermal filler carefully added to targeted areas of the nose in order to make it appear straighter and more symmetrical. This treatment is often referred to as non-surgical rhinoplasty or liquid rhinoplasty. 

The vast majority of dermal fillers we use at Coolspa are made of hyaluronic acid, also known as HA. HA fillers have the advantage of being truly reversible with hyaluronidase. Dermal fillers are available in various unique formulations, each addressing specific concerns. For instance, some dermal fillers are specifically formulated to add volume to the lips, while others are designed to reduce the appearance of superficial wrinkles. Others are meant to be placed deeper in the face to help improve its structure.

Coolspa aims to offer comprehensive solutions for clients who wish to look and feel their very best. Injectables provide a safe, non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation and youthfulness among both women and men.

Learn More About Dermal Fillers

As we age, our skin begins to lose collagen. This protein is responsible for keeping the skin firm and elastic. Without collagen, the skin becomes thin and wrinkled. Dermal fillers help to replenish the collagen that has been lost over time. These injectables contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally produced by the body and helps with water retention.

Hyaluronic acid boosts hydration and improves collagen production, which can lead to firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Additionally, it helps to add volume to the face and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

The dermal fillers that Coolspa offers include but are not limited to:

Juvederm® Family of Fillers:

Juvederm® is a collection of HA gel fillers that address different cosmetic concerns, such as volume loss and contour deformities. Juvederm® Voluma™ XC is one type of filler in this line often used for injections to the high cheek, chin, or jawline to increase volume and definition. Juvederm® Vollure® XC, Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC, and Juvederm® Ultra XC are other types of filler among this brand, often used to correct moderate skin laxity and wrinkles.

Juvederm® Ultra XC and Juvederm® Vollure® XC are sometimes selected for natural volume enhancement to lips and peri-oral area. Juvederm® Volbella™ XC is one of the softest types of filler in the collection and may be used in delicate areas of the face like the under eye and tear trough area. Volbella™ may also be used around the mouth for light lip augmentation, vertical smoker lines, and tech neck.

Restylane® Family of Fillers:

The Restylane® collection of fillers is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler line that we use to add contour and/or volume to areas of the face, as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Restylane® Kysse is a lip filler that improves your expression, the color of your lips, and their overall plumpness, while Restylane® Silk works to smooth the wrinkles found around the mouth. 

Restylane® Contour is an injectable HA gel that adds fullness to the cheeks for a natural, youthful look. Restylane® Lyft treats volume loss in wrinkled hands and sunken cheeks. Restylane® Refyne and Defyne utilize XpresHAn Technology™ to support natural expression and movement in your face. 


Revanesse® Pure™ is a moisturizing hyaluronic acid gel that restores lost HA in the face, creating a younger-looking you. The original Revanesse® addresses fine lines and wrinkles, adding volume to areas of the face that need it. Revanesse® Kiss™ is used primarily for lip augmentation. 

Revanesse® Ultra™ is a contouring HA gel that addresses deeper wrinkles, and Revanesse® Contour™ treats large-volume areas of the face. Revanesse® Shape™ is the highest viscosity HA gel treatment that Revanesse® offers, shaping and volumizing deep tissue areas. 

Revanesse® Versa™

Revanesse® Versa™ is a specific hyaluronic acid treatment option that decreases the appearance of laugh lines with immediate results. Versa™ uses a new 1.2mL syringe that delivers 20% more product and is the only dermal filler in the US that currently offers this advantage. 

Belotero Balance®

Belotero Balance® is a prescription injection by MERZ that improves the complexion of those with moderate to severe laugh lines and wrinkles in the lower face. It works quickly upon injection.

RHA® Collection of Fillers

RHA® is a Resilient Hyaluronic Acid serum that, upon multiple uses, can lift your skin and reduce wrinkles. RHA® is a proprietary blend of vitamin B6, zinc, copper, and a mixture of amino acids.


Radiesse® is excellent for filling in lost volume in the hands, at the temples, and around the jaw. Radiesse® works to restore depleted levels of collagen. It is also being used to improve the signs of severe fat loss in the faces of patients under long-term treatment for HIV.

Skin Boosters

From the popular Juvederm® brand now comes a unique injectable: SKINVIVE™, a hyaluronic acid skin booster. Instead of adding volume, SKINVIVE™ is designed to improve your skin’s health and hydration. HA’s hydrating benefits are often utilized in skincare products and moisturizers but are even more effective when injected. 

SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm® is FDA-approved to improve skin smoothness in the cheek area. After this convenient treatment, patients enjoy softer, smoother, more radiant skin for approximately six months. 

Before your treatment, you will meet with your Coolspa injection specialist to discuss your goals and concerns. They will also perform a brief physical examination to ensure that you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. They will thoroughly assess your anatomy and make recommendations for improvement at that time.

In select cases, board-certified surgeon Dr. Rapaport will perform dermal filler injections himself as part of a full facial rejuvenation treatment plan. If you are interested in having Dr. Rapaport perform your injections, speak to a Coolspa staff member to apply. Dr. Rapaport will then assess whether a dermal filler treatment plan is right for you.

Most injectable sessions can last between 20-30 minutes, although some visits may take as long as an hour if multiple injectables are used or other modalities are incorporated into your treatment. Throughout your treatment, your provider will check in with you and ensure that you are comfortable. Patients who are extremely sensitive to small injections may request the use of numbing cream. For patients with anxiety regarding needles, our expert injectors can use a variety of techniques to minimize discomfort.

Ice packs may be used after treatment to help with the small amount of swelling that may occur. With any injection, there is a possibility of bruising, and this can take up to several days to resolve. The likelihood of bruising is minimized thanks to our providers’ advanced injectable techniques.

Dermal fillers are minimally invasive, and downtime is typically minimal. You may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, but this should dissipate within a few days. If you are concerned about the appearance of bruising, you can apply makeup over the area while it is healing. We understand that bruising may occur and offer complimentary laser treatments to help fade the bruise 24-48 hours after injections.

You will be able to see the results of your filler treatment immediately. However, the full effects generally take a few days to two weeks for the filler to fully integrate with your natural tissue and for any residual swelling to subside. Results from dermal fillers typically last several months or longer, although this often varies depending on the type of filler used and the area injected.

Dermal fillers offer several benefits, including the following:

  • A more rested, rejuvenated appearance
  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
  • Increased collagen production
  • Improved facial harmony 
  • Additional definition and structure
  • More symmetrical appearance
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Customizable treatment options

Dermal fillers are an excellent option for anyone looking to improve facial harmony or achieve a rejuvenated appearance and for those who want to add structure and definition to specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, or chin.
