Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment where material is injected into the skin to fill and smooth facial wrinkles and folds.* Fillers can also be used for volume replacement, bringing back a more youthful appearance of the aging face and even hands.*
Clients should be counseled by their physician regarding how much filler should be used to fully correct their treatment areas. Like with all dermal fillers, some clients may need more than one syringe to achieve great satisfactory result they are looking for.*

BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is an injectable filler that quickly integrates into your skin filling in facial wrinkles.
While Belotero is made of the same material, hyaluronic acid, as some other dermal fillers, Belotero has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction.
The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth) as well as more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
Belotero lasts about 6 months.
Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC are types of injected dermal fillers. Juvéderm is made with a smooth gel hyaluronic acid, a component found in our own skin. Because of this, pre-treatment allergy testing is not necessary with hyaluronic fillers.
Juvéderm is the only dermal hyaluronic acid filler on the market FDA approved to last up to one year from the time of initial treatment.*
Juvéderm XC indicates that the local anesthetic lidocaine has been added to the gel to numb the treatment area within seconds, for client comfort during the injections.*
Juvéderm Ultra XC is indicated for filling moderate lines and wrinkles while the Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC is utilized for volumizing facial areas and filling deeper folds.*
Clients should be counseled by their physician regarding how much Juvéderm should be used to fully correct their treatment areas. Like with all dermal fillers, some clients may need more than one syringe of Juvéderm to achieve the absolute best and satisfactory result they are looking for.*

RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is made of calcium hydroxylapatite. Therefore, it is different from most of the other fillers which are made of hyaluronic acid.
It is the only filler to both immediately replenish lost volume and stimulate the production of your own natural collagen. Radiesse is truly unique in its ability to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing lift and stimulating the production of your own natural collagen.
It is a perfect filler if you have significant volume loss and are looking for immediate volumizing with long-term results. In fact, when filled to optimal correction, you can expect Radiesse to last up to a year. And over time, as the Radiesse helps to stimulate your own collagen, you will notice that the Radiesse lasts longer and longer between injections.*
Sculptra Aesthetic is made with a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material called poly-L lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by the a trained specialist.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years. By injecting this filler into the desired areas, Dr. Nichols is able to help you restore facial volume and fullness to wrinkles and folds on the face.
Juvéderm Voluma XC —Voluma for short—is the first filler approved by the FDA to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. Voluma is a high-density hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that has been approved and used in 72 other countries for years.
It works particularly well at restoring volume to cheeks. Volume loss in this part of the face results in hollowing of the cheek area and a sagging appearance. It is one of the earliest signs of aging.
The great thing about Voluma is that not only is it dense enough to adequately fill these large hollows, but it also lasts longer than any other HA filler on the market. 2 years! This is great for clients that dislike returning for frequent refills and the needle-sticks that come with it.*
Like Juvederm and some of the other fillers, VolumaXC contains lidocaine, which significantly minimizes any discomfort with injection.
