Types of Dermal FillersTypes of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers have revolutionized the field of facial aesthetic enhancement and facial anti-aging. Some of the leading injectable fillers are approved by the FDA for cosmetic reduction of wrinkles and lines, and replenishing facial volume. Any dermal filler procedure should only be received at a medical spa that is fully equipped to provide such treatments.

Sky Balance Med Spa, led by Dr. Sameer Naseeruddin and Dr. Alison Egeland, provides proven and advanced dermal fillers. The experts at the med spa will recommend the most appropriate fillers according to the patient’s needs. Sky Balance receives patients from Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and surrounding communities.

Juvederm XC

Juvederm XC is an FDA approved, hyaluronic acid based facial filler to address fine lines to deep folds on the face. It is available in three different concentrations to suit the needs of different patients. Hard to treat areas around the nose and mouth can be smoothed instantly with Juvederm injections. It reduces age lines, enhances lips, and both preserves and restores younger looking skin. Results with Juvederm can last for up to 12 months.

Juvederm Voluma XC

Juvederm Voluma is the first and only non-surgical injectable procedure to have been approved by the FDA for cheek volumizing. The injections are designed to add volume to the cheeks and other depleted facial areas. Patients seeking fuller and rounder facial contours can benefit from Juvederm Voluma treatment. Voluma gel is based on hyaluronic acid and is injected deep into the targeted areas. Results can last for 18 to 24 months.


Restylane is one of the most popular medical spa dermal fillers to treat facial lines, wrinkles and creases. Effects of Restylane injections can last for around six to eight months. The procedure is usually preceded by anesthetizing with a topical cream. Following the treatment, mild side effects such as bruising, redness and mild discomfort may be experienced for a day or two.


Perlane belongs to the Restylane family of dermal fillers. It is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. The size of particles in Perlane is different from that of Restylane. Therefore, the depth of injections also differs. In case of more pronounced wrinkles, the med spa treatment provider may inject Perlane into the deeper skin layers. Sky Balance receives patients from Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and nearby areas for this treatment.


FDA approved Sculptra Aesthetic is an advanced, poly-L-lactic acid based dermal filler that can replenish the lost collagen. As the filler is injected into the targeted areas of the skin, it induces fresh production of collagen. This will help improve varying degree of wrinkles and creases on the face. Sculptra is made from the same substance used in dissolvable sutures and several soft tissue implants.


Radiesse is an advanced dermal filler that can restore lost facial volume and stimulate the production of collagen in the body. Natural looking results with Radiesse will last for about a year or even more in many patients. Radiesse has been approved by the FDA to mix with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize injection related pain.
