Smile lines are an inevitable part of the aging process. The dynamic wrinkles around the nose and mouth are caused by years of repetitive facial expressions. While it’s normal for both men and women to get these lines, many patients are bothered by them. If you find that your smile lines make you appear older on the outside than you feel on the inside, you’re in luck!
Derma-Tech Medical Spa proudly offers a variety of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to treat your individual needs. With a wide range of FDA-approved injectables, we’re able to help you safely and effectively meet your short and long-term goals.
Why We Love Soft Tissue Fillers
Soft tissue fillers are administered with a short in-office procedure. Hyaluronic acid injectables (HA) are quick, easy, and virtually pain-free (most are even lidocaine-enhanced). Patients can get almost instant results with little to no downtime. HA is a naturally-occurring substance found within the body making it safe and effective for all skin types and tones. HA fillers are also very versatile in that they can be dissolved with a simple subsequent injection. This is a relief to patients who may be reluctant to try dermal fillers for the first time. so there is no worry
HA-based dermal fillers can be done alone or combined with other fillers throughout the face to maximize results. Each formula has unique properties that allow us to treat everything from vertical lip lines to deep lines around the mouth.

Juvederm is a well-known HA-based collection of fillers. Juvederm Voluma, in particular, is ideal for addressing lines and wrinkles in the mid-facial region. The FDA-approved injectable gel is designed to help combat deep dynamic wrinkles and is one of the longest-lasting HA fillers currently on the market. In clinical trials, the injectable had a high patient satisfaction rate even after 2+ years.
*Individual results may vary
Restylane offers different formulas that are perfect for everything from subtle lip plumping to deep wrinkle correction.
