Dermal Fillers

Add Volume to Minimize Wrinkles in Nashville


Youthful skin is known for its resilience and elasticity, its smooth texture and ability to “snap back” after being stretched or pulled out of place. Unfortunately, both internal and external factors impact the skin over time, leading to the formation of creases, sagging, the development of hollows, and more. All of these can be addressed with dermal fillers at Nashville Plastic Surgery Institute.


Facial fillers—also sometimes called soft tissue fillers or dermal fillers—are convenient and affordable treatments that provide effective and long-lasting results. Patients who choose these injectables typically enjoy a more naturally rejuvenated appearance without the need for any incisions or anesthesia. There is no scarring or lengthy recovery period—just new volume that creates a more youthful look.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

As the pages of time turn, our skin undergoes a natural evolution. Vital components such as elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid—which once flourished within our skin, giving it a firm, plump, and radiant appearance— begin to wane in production.

Collagen and elastin, the foundational proteins woven into our skin’s deeper layers, provide essential support and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid, a critical hydrating molecule, draws moisture to the skin, ensuring suppleness and volume. These elements work in harmony to maintain the youthful vitality of our skin.

However, as we journey through life, the reduced synthesis of these nourishing substances gradually impacts the skin’s texture and appearance. This natural decrease can lead to a lessening of skin elasticity and firmness, culminating in the onset of static wrinkles and sagging. Such changes are often accompanied by the appearance of hollowed areas across the face, contributing to a look that may seem prematurely aged or weary.

Dermal fillers are designed to correct these signs of aging without the need for more invasive and costly surgical techniques. Injectable dermal fillers work by addressing soft-tissue volume loss and filling out thinned and hollowed areas of the face.

As nonsurgical treatments, dermal fillers are made up of synthetic or naturally derived substances and injected to the area below the skin to reduce the depth of wrinkles, lines, and creases, as well as to sculpt more youthful contours. They can also be used to fill in scars and depressions from acne. Moreover, many of the fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is often included in topical products to moisturize the skin.

A Tailored Approach to Dermal Filler Treatments

Your transformative treatment at Nashville Plastic Surgery Institute starts with a thoughtful consultation. Dr. Jacob Unger or Tracy Jensen will conduct a detailed evaluation of your facial structure, skin quality, and aesthetic goals. This personalized approach helps to create a dermal filler experience that is as unique as you are.

The injection process does not take long, commonly ranging from just a few minutes to 15 minutes. The number of sessions depends on the individual treatment plan. A topical anesthetic can be employed to maximize comfort, and impressive results can be seen practically right away, lasting anywhere from half a year to over two years, depending on the dermal filler chosen.

The Nashville Plastic Surgery Institute team offers an extensive range of advanced wrinkle treatments, including dermal fillers.

Nashville-area women and men who want to find the most effective method for achieving smoother, younger looking skin can schedule a consultation with our skin care specialists today or call 615.932.7700.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Many of the most well-known dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid as their key ingredient. This is a natural sugar that is found in all living organisms, though synthetic forms of hyaluronic acid have been created and used for a variety of purposes over the last several decades. High concentrations of this clear, gel- like substance are found in soft connective tissue, cartilage, joints, and skin, where it provides cushioning and moisture. The dermal fillers that are comprised of hyaluronic acid are JUVEDERM® Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC, JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC, Restylane®, and RHA®.

Ultra and Ultra Plus

The difference between Ultra XC and Ultra Plus is mostly the viscosity and consistency. Ultra Plus is a thicker and more robust formulation, which helps it last longer as it reduces medium-depth creases and enhances the lips.


VOLUMA® XC is an FDA-approved injectable that adds volume to the midface, providing a subtle lift and helping restore a younger profile. The entire JUVEDERM®  family of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers provide a smooth correction of wrinkles that has been known to last for more than a year from the initial treatment.


Restylane® is another collection of FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Each of the fillers in this collection is designed to treat different areas of the face, from around the mouth to below the eyes.


The RHA® collection of dermal fillers from Revance® focuses on wrinkles that appear in high-motion areas on the face. Frequent muscle activity tends to break down fillers more quickly, but these options are designed to hold out against routine motion, whether they are addressing nasolabial folds (RHA® 2), more severe creases (RHA® 3), or volume loss that alters facial contours (RHA® 4).
