Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers, a breakthrough in the cosmetic industry, are injectable substances used to plump up skin, fill in lines and wrinkles, help correct recessed scars, and rejuvenate the face. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Sony Truong, regain your youthful glow without invasive surgery.

Benefits of Using Dermal Fillers

  • Instant Results: The effects of dermal fillers can be seen immediately after the procedure.
  • Non-invasive: No surgical intervention means minimal discomfort and downtime.
  • Long-lasting Effects: Depending on the type of filler used, results can last from 6 months to 2 years.
  • Boosts Confidence: By enhancing your natural features and reducing signs of aging, dermal fillers can boost your self-esteem.
  • What Can Dermal Fillers Address?

    Dermal fillers are a versatile treatment that can address a variety of cosmetic concerns. Here are some of the issues that dermal fillers can help with:

    • Smoothing of Deep Under-Eye Circles: Fillers can be used to fill in the hollows under the eyes, reducing the appearance of dark circles and giving a more refreshed look.
    • Lifting of Cheekbones: As we age, we tend to lose volume in the face, especially in the cheek area. Dermal fillers can restore this lost volume, giving a lift to the cheekbones and creating a more youthful appearance.
    • Volumization of the Lips: Fillers can be used to enhance the size and shape of the lips, giving them a fuller and plumper look.
    • Addressing Facial Wrinkles and Folds: Dermal fillers can smooth out lines and wrinkles on the face, such as nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth), marionette lines (lines running from the corners of the mouth down to the chin), and crow's feet.

    Ideal Candidates for Dermal Fillers

    Ideal candidates for dermal fillers are typically those who:

    • Are in good general health: This is important as the procedure involves injections which require the individual to be healthy.
    • Do not smoke: Smoking can affect the healing process post-procedure.
    • Have realistic expectations: Dermal fillers can enhance one's appearance but they are not a solution for severe wrinkles or sagging skin.
    • Have moderate to severe folds or wrinkles, or other problem areas that they want to correct.
    • Are 18 years or older: This is a basic requirement for patients who wish to undergo treatment with dermal fillers.

    It's also worth noting that while most individuals can be good candidates for dermal fillers, those needing minimal permanent work done are considered ideal. Patients with a history of extreme allergies might not be suitable candidates for certain types of injectable fillers due to potential allergic reactions.


    During your consultation, Dr. Truong will discuss your aesthetic goals, assess your facial structure, and recommend the most suitable type of dermal filler for you. He will guide you through the entire process, ensuring you feel comfortable and confident about your decision.

    Treatment Options

    We use a variety of different dermal fillers that suit the individual's needs. Brands such as Belotero, Juvederm Voluma XC, Radiesse, Bellafill, Sculptra, and Restylane are used. Dr. Sony Truong will provide the best option suited to your needs.

    What happens during The Procedure?

    The procedure involves injecting small amounts of filler into targeted areas of the face. You might feel a slight pinch during the injection, but discomfort is typically minimal. Post-procedure, you may experience minor swelling or bruising which should subside within a few days.


    Recovery is usually quick, with any minor side-effects resolving within a couple of days. You can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.

    Post-Operative Care

    After the procedure, avoid strenuous exercise, exposure to sun and heat, and consumption of alcohol for at least 24 hours. These precautions help minimize swelling and bruising.

    List of Dermal Fillers We Use



    Belotero is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found within your skin that diminishes with age. It's known for seamlessly blending with your skin, enhancing its natural movement and appearance. This versatile filler is used to reduce nasolabial folds and other pronounced wrinkles, and it is particularly effective in areas where the skin is thin. One of the key benefits of Belotero Balance® is its lower density compared to other fillers like Juvéderm®, making it ideal for delivering a natural-looking smoothness. Additionally, it provides rich hydration and stimulates collagen production, helping to soften facial wrinkles, lines, and folds.


    Juvederm Voluma XC

    Juvederm Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler specifically designed to restore volume in areas of the face where it has been lost due to aging or other factors. Primarily used in the cheek area, Voluma works by adding plumpness and contour, effectively reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The unique formulation lifts and sculpts the facial features, providing a youthful and rejuvenated look. One of its benefits is its longevity, with results lasting up to two years in some cases. Furthermore, being FDA-approved, Juvederm Voluma XC is considered safe and effective. It's also known for its immediate results, as the injected hyaluronic acid attracts water, enhancing facial fullness right away.



    Radiesse is a dermal filler that is commonly used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It works by stimulating the body's natural collagen production, which in turn helps fill in wrinkles and aids skin in developing new collagen. Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, a substance that naturally stimulates collagen production. This not only provides immediate volume and correction but continues to improve the skin's texture over time. One of the greatest benefits of Radiesse is its dual action: it provides immediate filling and smoothing effects, while also enhancing your skin's natural collagen production for long-lasting results.



    Bellafill is a unique, FDA-approved dermal filler known for its longevity and versatility. It's primarily composed of a collagen gel base and tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. The collagen provides immediate volume and lift to correct wrinkles and acne scars while the PMMA microspheres remain beneath the skin's surface to create a matrix that supports the production of your body's own collagen over time. This stimulation of natural collagen growth contributes to Bellafill's long-lasting results, which can maintain a youthful appearance for up to five years. Apart from treating wrinkles, particularly nasolabial folds or smile lines, Bellafill is also approved for the treatment of acne scars.



    Sculptra is a unique type of dermal filler that stimulates your body's natural collagen production to restore facial volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Unlike other fillers that immediately plump up areas of the skin, Sculptra works gradually over time, delivering more subtle and natural-looking results. The main active ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible substance that has been safely used in medical applications for decades. The benefits of Sculptra include its ability to treat deep lines, creases, and folds, adding volume to hollowed areas, and enhancing facial contours. It's particularly beneficial for those seeking long-term improvement, as it can last up to two years or more, making it a cost-effective option for sustained youthfulness.



    Restylane is a popular dermal filler that uses a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in the body, to rejuvenate and add volume to the skin. It's primarily used to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, especially around the mouth and eyes, as well as enhancing lips and shaping facial contours. One of the main benefits of Restylane is its ability to attract and retain moisture, which helps maintain skin hydration and contributes to a youthful appearance. Furthermore, it enhances collagen production, vital for skin health, elasticity, and hydration. Restylane fillers are known for their natural-looking results and can last up to 18 months, depending on the specific product used and the area treated.

    Addressing Mild To Moderate Issues

    Dermal fillers are a popular non-surgical treatment option for addressing a variety of mild to moderate cosmetic concerns. Here are some specific issues that dermal fillers can help with:

    • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Dermal fillers can smooth out early signs of aging by filling in fine lines and wrinkles, including crow's feet, forehead lines, and smile lines.
    • Volume Loss in Cheeks: As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat, leading to a loss of volume and fullness. Dermal fillers can be used to enhance the fullness of the cheeks and restore a more youthful appearance.
    • Thin Lips: Some people naturally have thin lips, or they may become thinner over time due to aging. Dermal fillers can be used to augment the lips, providing increased volume and definition.
    • Mild to Moderate Nasolabial Folds: These are the lines or folds that go from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth. Dermal fillers can soften these folds, giving the face a smoother look.
    • Marionette Lines: These lines run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin. Dermal fillers can help reduce the appearance of these lines, providing a more youthful and refreshed look.
    • Under-Eye Hollows and Dark Circles: Dermal fillers can be used to add volume under the eyes, reducing the appearance of hollows and dark circles.
