Facial Fillers: Which Are Right for Me?
Thinking about getting facial fillers to restore the youthful look of your skin? Learn more about how facial fillers work and which injectable brands may be right for you.

If you’re not ready for a facelift or other invasive surgery but still want solutions to address age-related skin flaws, facial fillers may be the answer you’re looking for.

At Island Aesthetics & Dermatology, our skin experts Shannon Tumblin, ARPN, and Kristy Anderson, ARPN, specialize in treatments using high-quality facial fillers. We provide comprehensive skin evaluations and customize a care plan using a range of popular fillers that give you long-lasting, natural-looking results.

What facial fillers can do for you

Facial fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and other medical-grade substances that our providers inject into specific areas of your face.

The fillers we use can restore volume in your cheeks and lips, smooth out wrinkles and lines, and enhance the overall symmetry of your face. You may also be a candidate for facial fillers if you want your skin to look and feel tighter.

Treatments with facial fillers are typically quick and comfortable. We can provide a topical anesthetic over your skin to prevent pain at the injection site before your injections.

After your treatment, you can go back to your usual activities without any downtime or recovery. Many people schedule filler appointments on their lunch break because they can return to work without any limitations.

Evaluating your facial filler options

Determining which facial fillers are right for you involves a comprehensive skin evaluation. Our providers also spend time discussing your expectations for results, so they can help choose the fillers that work best for your goals.

At Island Aesthetics & Dermatology, we offer the latest advancements in facial fillers, including:


Radiesse targets wrinkles in your face and can restore lost volume in your face and hands. Injections of Radiesse also offer the added benefit of stimulating your body’s natural collagen production to further enhance your results.

Juvéderm Ultra® and Ultra Plus XC®

Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus XC are FDA-approved gel fillers that improve the natural contours of your face, especially between your brows and around your nose and mouth. The gel fillers can last up to a year before you need additional injections.

Juvéderm Volbella®

Volbella is an injectable lip filler. The filler can enhance the volume in your lips and smooth out vertical lip lines with results that can last up to a year. We can also use Volbella to improve the area under your eyes.

Juvéderm Voluma XC®

Juvéderm Voluma XC is a gel filler that immediately adds volume to your cheeks and gives the midface area a subtle lift, so you can look younger. Results of Voluma XC can provide natural-looking results that last up to two years.

In addition to administering your initial facial fillers, we provide maintenance injections at a later time, so you can retain your results for many more years to come.

Island Aesthetics & Dermatology also offers comprehensive dermatology and skin care services to protect the long-term health of your skin. In addition to facial fillers, we may recommend treatments like chemical peels, microneedling, and facials to keep your skin vibrant and youthful.
