Dermal fillers and under eye fillers are products that integrate with your own body’s collagen and are used to boost volume, lift, soften a fold, and contour the overall face and jawline. They work by replacing lost volume and fullness of the skin and restoring youthful contours. Recent studies show they may also induce neocollagenesis or new collagen by activating certain cells in the skin when injected. Most commonly treated areas with fillers include:
More specialized areas of treatment include:
There are numerous fillers available, each with its own unique texture and characteristic. Dr. Chiu will guide you in choosing the most effective dermal filler or combination of dermal fillers. The goal is to restore lost volume that occurs over time, to smooth wrinkles, soften folds, and achieve the most natural, youthful, and balanced appearance.

Do Dermal Fillers hurt?
There are typically numbing agents premixed into the filler, and we also use a topical numbing cream, making injectables very well tolerated procedures. Even under eye fillers have little or now pain involved.
Can I go out right after a Dermal Filler treatment?
There may be swelling or bruising for 2-7 days after the procedure. Redness in the areas treated can last a few hours on the first day. Tinted moisturizer or light cover-up can typically cover any minor redness.
How long do Dermal Fillers last?
Duration of results depends on the type of filler being used, but it ranges from 4 months to 2 years.
Are Dermal Fillers reversible?
Very, very rarely are patients unhappy with their filler treatment. However, at The Derm Institute, we are the experts in dermal fillers and sometimes need to help patients who come in to see us after a filler is injected poorly or too superficially by an outside clinic with inexperienced practitioners. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvederm can easily be corrected and dissolved in 24-48 hours, and your skin will return to baseline. Radiesse and Sculptra are not reversible, but we can help evaluate problematic cases and work with you to find the best solution.
How much do Dermal fillers cost?
Under eye fillers and other dermal fillers varies in cost from patient to patient, and a complete consultation is needed to determine pricing. Typically, longer lasting fillers will be more costly than fillers that last a shorter time. Most commonly, pricing starts at $450.
What happens if I don’t get retreated?
Gradually, your body will reabsorb the filler (with the exception of Sculptra), and your wrinkles and folds will return to baseline. It does not worsen any wrinkles with use.
