Dermal Fillers smooth away wrinkles, enhance your facial features and hydrate the skin from within.
Dermal Fillers is a technique in which the filler substance is injected into the skin to restore the volume and fullness of the skin. When soft -tissue fillers first became available, aesthetic physicians had only an animal form of collagen available, called zyderm and zyplast. Skin tests were required to minimize the risk of treating anyone who might be allergic to the substance, and the product typically lasted about 3 months. These were used as fillers, mostly around the mouth to actually fill in lines and creases.
The exciting news is that over the past ten years there has been an impressive array of new FDA- approved products that have become available that not only fill lines and wrinkles, but actually help re-contour, rejuvenate, volumize and restore the face, and even other areas of the body such as the hands, to a natural more youthful appearance without going under the knife.
The dermal fillers we use in JSC are a crystal-clear biodegradable gel, based on a natural, non-animal substance. They are the ‘ground’ substance or gel in which the proteins (collagen and elastin) lie. They are not a protein, but are made up of long chains of sugar molecules called Polysaccharides and as such allergic reactions are rare. This element can be found throughout the human body and along with promoting hydration can help to restore volume to the skin. These products can also return body and fullness to your lips, giving you the lips you’ve always wanted in one simple step.
It can also be used for non surgical breast and buttock augmentation. Correction of depressed scars and hand rejuvenation can also be done with fillers The results are instant; however the initial redness and injection marks will decrease in less than 6 hours. Maximum results are seen in 2 weeks.
How do they work?
Dermal Fillers replenish volume under the skin to restore youthful contours and minimize lines and wrinkles.
As we age, collagen – the protein scaffolding that maintains skin firmness – gradually disappears and the dermis loses moisture. Today’s remarkable products can take years off of your appearance by restoring the volume that time has taken away. As youthful cheeks begin to flatten and sag, wrinkles, lines, and indentations appear.
What areas can be treated?
Lines & wrinkles
This treatment provides volume by supporting the skin’s structure. Treatment benefits can be seen immediately and are long lasting but not permanent. The process works from beneath the skin to lift and smooth away lines and restore your skin’s appearance.

Cheeks & Chin
Rediscover your cheekbones! While there is no such thing as the perfectly shaped face, we do know that better definition of the central triangle formed by the eyes and lips enhances the perception of beauty. With this treatment, you can draw attention back to your cheekbones. By replacing lost natural volume in the skin, fillers can create fuller cheeks, lifting the skin over your cheekbones to restore shape to the upper part of your face, or add emphasis to your chin to improve your profile.
