Signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, and loss of facial volume are common changes that can occur over time. As these signs become more noticeable, many people seek non-invasive treatments that can improve the appearance of their skin. Dermal fillers can provide contouring for the face, fill in lines, and add volume where desired for a smooth and natural-looking result.
At Avanti Medical Center in Lehi, UT, we specialize in customized dermal filler treatments. We carry a full range of products so that we can provide you with the most personalized services possible. Whether you want to add volume to your lips or treat your nasolabial folds, we can find the right filler for you.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a category of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments designed to enhance facial contours, restore volume, and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. They work by injecting a gel-like substance into the skin to counteract signs of aging that are visible on the face.
Dermal fillers offer a non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures, providing immediate results with minimal recovery time. We use two different types of cosmetic fillers at our medical center, hyaluronic acid fillers and Radiesse®, a unique CaHA biostimulator and dermal filler.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
The duration of results from dermal fillers can vary significantly depending on the type of filler used, the area of application, and individual factors such as metabolism, lifestyle, and skin condition. Generally, dermal fillers can last anywhere from a few months to over a year or more.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, for example, can last anywhere between six months to a year or longer. Radiesse, a filler that also stimulates collagen production, may provide results that last a year or more.

Radiesse® Dermal Filler and Biostimulator
Radiesse is a unique type of cosmetic filler that stands apart because of its dual-action performance. Not only is it a good volumizing filler, but it also works as a biostimulator, promoting the natural production of collagen within the skin.
As a dermal filler, Radiesse provides immediate volume and correction upon injection. Made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, Radiesse works well to treat moderate to severe wrinkles, folds, and areas of volume loss. Its robust formulation makes it ideal for contouring and shaping facial features and restoring volume.
However, the benefits of Radiesse extend beyond instant correction. As a biostimulator, Radiesse initiates collagen synthesis, helping the body to produce its own natural collagen around the CaHA microspheres. This results in prolonged cosmetic improvement as the body gradually metabolizes the CaHA particles, leaving behind natural collagen and promoting more youthful-looking skin in the process.
