Dermal fillers are injectable water-based gels that treat deep facial lines and folds. They help “fill in” and “smooth out” the face. In addition, they can be used to “plump” thin or deflated areas such as the lips and brow. They can be used almost anywhere on the face as a nonsurgical alternative for facial rejuvenation.
Popular treatment areas for rejuvenation include:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Lower lid grooves (tear trough)
- Cheek augmentation
- Lip augmentation
Brow augmentation with dermal filler can help re-inflate a sagging brow and slightly elevate droopy eyelid skin. Combining treatment areas can achieve a liquid face lift or liquid eye lift.
Inland Aesthetic Institute and Dr. Vidor are proud to offer the following brands of dermal fillers:

The procedure typically takes about 15 minutes. Pain is kept to a minimum with numbing cream or local anesthesia. Some fillers contain numbing medicine so local anesthesia is not needed. Patients may return to most normal activity immediately with few restrictions. The effect lasts from 6 to more than 18 months.
Sculptra Aesthetic® is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment with age-defying results! Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness to deep facial wrinkles and folds that have been depleted over time. The result? A refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last up to two years.
Radiesse is a gel-matrix volumizing filler that uses calcium microspheres to stimulate your own natural collagen formation, replenishing volume to smooth moderate-to-severe wrinkles and plump sagging cheeks. Results are immediate, and most patients report that the injected areas look and feel very natural. Radiesse results can last up to one year for many patients.
