Ageing is a natural process that affects all of us, and one of the most visible signs of ageing is the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face as well as loss of volume around the face. While there’s no way to turn back the clock, there are many cosmetic treatments available that can help us look and feel our best at any age. One such treatment is dermal fillers. In this article, we’ll explore what dermal fillers are, the different types available, and how they can benefit you. Whether you’re looking to add volume to your cheeks, enhance your lips, or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dermal fillers may be just the solution you’re looking for.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic treatment used to add volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on the face. These filters are made up of various materials that are injected into the skin to improve its appearance. At Aesthetics by Bonnie, we offer several types of dermal fillers, each with its own unique benefits.

Types of fillers

  • Hyaluronic Acid:

One of the most common types of dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps keep our skin hydrated and plump. As we age, our bodies produce less HA, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. HA fillers can be used to add volume to areas like the cheeks, lips, and nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth). The results of HA fillers can last anywhere from six months to a year, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s body chemistry.

  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite:

Another type of dermal filler is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) filler. These fillers are made of tiny particles of calcium suspended in a gel-like substance. CaHA fillers are particularly good at treating deeper wrinkles and creases, such as marionette lines (lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin). The results of CaHA fillers can last up to a year or more.

  • Poly-L-lactic Acid:

Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) fillers are another type of dermal filler that are used to treat deeper wrinkles and add volume to the face. PLLA stimulates the production of collagen, which is the protein in the skin that gives it its structure and elasticity. The results of PLLA fillers are gradual, and it may take several months to see the full effects. However, the results can last up to two years.


Before undergoing any type of dermal filler treatment, it’s important to schedule a consultation with a licensed and experienced provider. At Aesthetics by Bonnie, we will work with you to determine which type of filler is best for your individual needs and goals. We pride ourselves on providing safe, effective, and natural-looking results.

Dermal fillers have become increasingly popular in recent years as a non-surgical option for restoring a more youthful appearance. They work by injecting various materials into the skin, which can help to add volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. The materials used in dermal fillers can range from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to keep skin hydrated and plump, to calcium hydroxylapatite, a gel-like substance made up of tiny particles of calcium that are particularly effective in treating deeper wrinkles and creases. At Aesthetics by Bonnie, we offer a range of dermal fillers to address a variety of concerns.
