Dermal Fillers

in Phoenix, AZ


Dermal fillers offer immediate wrinkle reduction and volume enhancement to areas of the face that may appear lax or hollow due to aging. In one, short, minimally invasive treatment at Sculpt AZ Medical Aesthetics in Phoenix Dermal Fillers can produce results that last as long as two years.


Dermal fillers are injectable, gel-like solutions that produce instant volume enhancement in areas that have been affected by aging. Aging causes natural collagen production within the body to decline, leading to increased skin laxity, facial volume loss, fine lines and wrinkles, and an overall tired, sunken appearance.

Dermal filler injections directly into areas of the face that show signs of aging fill out hollow spots and smooth overlying wrinkles. Dermal fillers may contain various naturally occurring or synthetic ingredients to improve the skin condition, increase hydration, boost natural collagen production, and increase skin elasticity over time. Dermal fillers are formulated with varying viscosities to mimic natural and youthful facial tissues in specific areas of the face. For example, the ideal filler for volume enhancement in the cheeks is a thicker solution than one designed for more delicate areas such as the eyes or lips.


Phoenix Dermal Filler injections at Sculpt AZ Medical Aesthetics offer facial rejuvenation that is both immediate and progressive for long-lasting and natural-looking results.

In addition, Dermal Filler injections take only a few minutes and involve no downtime, so you can schedule your treatment over your lunch break and return to your normal activities immediately. Sculpt AZ Medical Aesthetics strives to offer the best Dermal Fillers Phoenix has to offer. Thanks to technologies that allow Dermal Fillers to mimic natural tissues and the skilled application by our team of experienced professionals, your treatment results will be supple and flexible.


Most healthy adults who would like to treat signs of aging in the face are candidates for Dermal Fillers. However, patients who smoke, take certain medications or have underlying health issues that may hinder healing should not receive Dermal Filler injections. With any treatment, you should have realistic expectations for your results and treatment.


The Dermal Filler injection process is straightforward. When you arrive at Sculpt AZ Medical Aesthetics for your appointment, a member of our team will invite you into one of our private treatment areas. One of our treatment specialists will prep your skin by cleaning it and applying a topical anesthetic if needed. As soon as your skin is ready for treatment, the injection process will begin. The number of Dermal Filler injections you need will depend on the area or areas you would like to treat. Your appointment should take less than an hour from start to finish.


Dermal fillers involve minimal recovery and no downtime. In most cases, you can return to work immediately after your treatment. However, it is best to avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours to minimize any bruising or swelling near injection sites. If these conditions do occur, they usually resolve within a week to 10 days.


Dermal Fillers deliver immediate volume, so you will notice a difference in your skin right after your treatment. As your filler settles and swelling and bruising subside, you will realize your full results. Depending on the specific solution used and the speed at which your body processes it, your Dermal Filler results may last six months up to two years, or even longer! You can maintain your results with follow-up treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do dermal filler injections hurt?

Your treatment injections will feel comparable to other injections you might receive from your physician. You will experience a slight pinch with each injection, but you can minimize any discomfort with numbing cream applied at the beginning of your appointment. Some Dermal Fillers also contain lidocaine to reduce pain.

Does insurance cover dermal fillers?

Insurance does not cover dermal fillers since it is a cosmetic treatment and not medically necessary.

What are the risks associated with dermal fillers?

After treatment, the most common side effects to occur after treatment are swelling, redness, bruising, pain, or itching around injection sites. Occasionally, fillers can cause lumps, infection, or discoloration in the treated skin. Rarely, serious side effects may occur, including changes in vision, scarring, or allergic reaction. You can minimize the risks of any treatment by choosing a trusted and experienced provider.

What are some related treatments?

Other non-surgical treatments that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore your skin’s elasticity are neuromodulator injections like Botox, and Exilis Ultra 360 treatment. Some patients combine these treatments for all-over facial rejuvenation.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

Depending on the specific filler used, the price of this treatment typically falls between $500 and $700 per syringe.

What is the difference between dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox?

While both of these injectable facial rejuvenation treatments improve the appearance of wrinkles and skin laxity, specific criteria may make one treatment more suitable for different areas of the face. Dermal fillers increase volume and smooth static wrinkles, or wrinkles that appear due to gravity and volume depletion. Neuromodulators such as Botox are specifically designed to treat dynamic wrinkles or wrinkles caused by repeated facial movements. Examples of dynamic wrinkles include frown lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines. The combined use of dermal fillers and neuromodulators allow you to treat fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face without surgery.
