What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a safe, non-surgical solution to facial aging around the eyes, nose, mouth and jawline. These temporary injectables consist of a gel-like substance, which contains ingredients that plump the skin. Each suspension is perfectly formulated with a specific texture and density to target specific areas. One of the biggest advantages of using injectable fillers is that it is a non-invasive approach. Usually, you can see immediate results, and there is no downtime.

What are the benefits of dermal fillers?

  • Safe, non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Plumps depleted facial contours
  • Replenishes lost facial volume
  • Smooths away wrinkles and fine lines
  • Helps hydrate the skin
  • Improves facial symmetry
  • Provides a more youthful, inviting appearance
  • Helps boost self-confidence

What are some different types of fillers and wrinkle reducing treatments?

Dr. Poulos uses Volbella, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne and Defyne, Radiesse, and Sculptra.

BOTOX and Dysport:

Safe botulinum-based injections, which weaken the contracting muscles under the skin to create a smooth, firm appearance.

Restylane family of products:

Made with hyaluronic acid, Restylane products are used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and are FDA approved for use in lip enhancements.


Made with Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA). Since Radiesse stimulates the production of collagen, it provides both immediate and long-term results.


Made from poly-L-lactic acid, which does not provide immediate results. Instead, Sculptra stimulates collagen production and results appear gradually. After three-five treatments, results can last two years or more, with annual maintenance treatments possible.

This is my second cosmetic procedure with Dr. Poulos and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of both procedures. I made my decisions to proceed with confidence because I knew the risks, knew what the best options were for me and I knew that I was in good hands. Six stars!

Who is a good candidate for dermal fillers in Northborough?

Injectables are ideal for people on the go, who don’t have the time to take off for a long recovery. When possible, Dr. Poulos uses a cannula, a very thin tool that minimizes entry points and therefore facilitates less pain and bruising. 

You should consider injectables if you are struggling with an aspect of your appearance, but you aren’t ready to undergo a surgical procedure. There a number of areas that injectable fillers can help treat, such as:

  • Lines around nose and mouth (also called marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses)
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Thin or sunken lips
  • Hollow or weak cheekbones
  • Chin creases
  • Aging hands
