As you get older, your age starts to show on your skin. Everyone goes through this process, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. However, dry, dull, wrinkled skin does not have to be your reality forever.
Dermal fillers are anti-aging injectables that smooth wrinkles and firm your skin to give you a more youthful appearance. Here’s how they work and why you need these injectables in your skincare schedule.
How Fillers Boost Collagen Production
Your body produces less collagen and elastin as you age. These two compounds are responsible for your skin’s ability to “bounce back” and stay firm in your youth. Dermal fillers restore collagen and elastin production using hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that helps your body make more collagen. Each filler option contains plenty of hyaluronic acid to stimulate collagen production long after your injections. Dermal filler ingredients mimic your body’s natural hyaluronic acid to give your skin youthful elasticity.
With more collagen, your body can make more elastin and create a younger-looking complexion. Your skin will be smoother, softer, and more lifted after getting dermal fillers.
Dermal Fillers for Wrinkle Smoothing
Fine lines and wrinkles are some of the most obvious signs of aging skin. If you want to smooth your wrinkles and fill in creases on your face, fillers can help. Wrinkles typically form because of sun exposure, dry skin, and facial expressions. You can reverse some of these damaging skin factors with dermal fillers.
Dermal filler injectables have a firm but flexible consistency that adds volume under your skin. We inject filler into areas where you have a lot of wrinkles and creases so the filler can literally “fill in” your fine lines. This gives your skin powerful anti-aging results while reducing the appearance of pesky face lines.
Common areas for filler injections include the cheeks, lips, forehead, and jawline. These areas tend to form wrinkles faster than other parts of your body. Once we inject the filler, it gets to work filling in your wrinkles and fine lines in these treatment areas.
Youthful Skin Volume
Everyone wants supple, youthful skin. Dermal filler injectables add volume to your skin to make you look healthier and less aged.
You may think added volume will make you look bloated when it comes to your face, but with proper injection techniques, this does not happen. Dr. Karol Gutowski is an expert injector with many years of experience in cosmetic medicine.
The hyaluronic acid in fillers plumps your skin to add volume and appealing texture to your complexion. Hyaluronic acid is hydrating and fills your skin cells with moisture to make your complexion more supple. Nothing says ageless beauty like hydrated, voluminous skin.
Some fillers add volume to acne scars to reduce their appearance. This evens out your skin tone and keeps your complexion free of imperfections.
Filler Injectables in Glenview, IL
At Karol Gutowski, MD’s office in Glenview, IL, we offer a few different types of dermal fillers. Each brand of filler addresses different skin concerns and areas of your face.
Depending on the condition of your skin and how much it has aged, Dr. Gutowski may recommend one type of filler over another. He will discuss this with you during your initial consultation.
Bellafill is a brand of permanent filler injectables that treat acne scars. These injectables contain microspheres mixed with collagen and a numbing agent. This treatment is one of the most recommended for addressing old acne scars.
This type of filler remains in your skin for two to five years to correct the appearance of acne scars. Whether your scars are old or relatively fresh, Bellafill can even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of the scars. You don’t need to be reminded of your past breakouts anymore.
Belotero dermal fillers address laugh and smile lines around your mouth. This type of filler can also add volume to sunken-in under-eye areas and smooth moderate to severe wrinkles.
If your face needs an anti-aging boost with more volume and suppleness, Belotero fillers are perfect for you.

Juvéderm Voluma XC
Do you struggle with sallow-looking or sunken cheeks? This can happen with age as your skin loses volume and collagen. Juvéderm Voluma XC boosts your cheeks’ volume to create a rounder, younger-looking appearance.
Your mid-face is most noticeable when you look in the mirror, so correcting this volume loss can rejuvenate your facial appearance. Juvéderm Voluma XC results can last as long as two years if you maintain a nourishing skincare routine.
Patients choose Restylane for multiple areas of their faces. These dermal fillers can add volume to your lips and cheeks and correct deep wrinkles.
