Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetics that add volume just underneath the skin. As a result, lines and wrinkles smooth out to restore or create balance in your natural features.

At Skin Shop medSpa, Dr. Su uses dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of:

  • Lines and creases
  • Recessed acne scars
  • Shallow contours
  • Under-eye shadows
  • Facial deformities

Different formulas of dermal fillers are available and Dr. Su creates a customized plan based on your unique features, concerns, and beauty goals.

How can permanent makeup be combined with dermal fillers?

Skin Shop medSpa offers a unique service package that combines dermal filler lip treatment with lip tinting. The dermal fillers give your lips an enviable plump and smooth pout while the permanent makeup gives your new lips a natural pinky-peach hue.

This ombre lip shading service, widely popular in the Los Angeles area, is now available in Houston. You benefit from having defined lips that don’t require lipstick. You can just apply a little gloss to make your smile stand out.

What are common types of dermal fillers?

At Skin Shop medSpa. Dr. Su offers a wide variety of dermal fillers to provide you with the absolute best results. Fillers come in a variety of formulas and thickness levels.

Thinner fillers, like Juvéderm Ultra XC® and Restylane Silk®, are usually used for surface areas like your lips and under-eye areas. Thicker fillers, like Juvéderm Voluma®, are appropriate for the cheeks, chin, jawline, and temples.

Among the well-known brands offered at Skin Shop medSpa are:


Juvéderm is one of several brands of dermal fillers that contain a high concentration of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a compound your body produces naturally and plentifully in your youth to plump skin and smooth out lines. As you age, your production of hyaluronic acid tapers off, leaving you with wrinkles and lines.

The Juvéderm family of products restores your hyaluronic acid levels through formulas that are specialized for each area of your face.


Restylane is another brand of dermal fillers that contains hyaluronic acid. Dr. Su uses Restylane and Restylane Lyft® to replace lost volume and restore your youthful contours.


Radiesse is a different kind of filler that contains calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel. These microspheres fill in lost volume and lift mildly sagging skin. They create the ideal foundation for your skin and encourage the natural development of collagen, a skin-strengthening compound, so your results persist.

Belotero Balance®

Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid filler with unique properties that allow it to adapt within your skin for soft, even correction.

Revanesse Versa®

Revanesse Versa is one of the newer hyaluronic acid fillers on the market. It’s water based, making it unique and more adaptable to multiple treatment areas.

How long do the effects of dermal fillers last?

The effects of the dermal fillers offered at Skin Shop medSpa last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the area treated and the type of filler used. Retreatments of dermal fillers are recommended when your results start to wear off.
