What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers have been called “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.
Our cosmetic dermal fillers are injected into the skin to improve texture, volume and appearance. They can also smooth wrinkles caused by the natural aging process. Treatments can last anywhere from 4 to 18 months, depending on the type of dermal filler used and the severity of the wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are safe and generally well-tolerated. Be sure to inform your doctor of any and all allergies, especially to lidocaine, before treatment. Side effects, although rare, appear most often at the site of injection and may include:

Is Collagen a dermal filler?
Although collagen may the most well known for filling facial wrinkles, and the original solution for treatment, anti aging medicine has progressed forwards and doctors have far more superior methods doctors can use.
What Is Collagen?
Collagen forms a network of fibers within your skin, its the main component in connective tissues that gives it strength. In youth collagen keeps skin remains moisturized and elastic. However, as we age collagen decreases and our tissue weakens and the skin loses its elasticity.
Science has advanced forward in the aesthetics field where dermal fillers or PRP treatments are preferred over collagen treatments. The older forms of collagen do not last as long as the newer formulations of hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm and Resylane. Collagen works by plumping in the skin while the dermal fillers work by not only plumping the skin but also trapping water in the large molecules.
