What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers, sometimes called injectable implants, soft tissue fillers or wrinkle fillers, are designed to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face. Dermal fillers are used to treat midface contour deficiencies and target the area known as the nasolabial folds near your nose and mouth, as well as the cheeks, chin, lips and back of the hands to restore volume loss. Volume loss occurs as a result of aging.

Dermal fillers can contain a variety of substances, including naturally occurring and synthetic compounds. One of the most common ingredients used in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA). This naturally occurring substance is found in the skin and plays a critical role in keeping your skin hydrated and plump.

Over time, the body absorbs many dermal fillers, so individuals choosing injectables will need maintenance visits to maintain results. Dermal fillers can last six months to a year or more, depending on what type of filler you choose.


What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

They have immediate results. After your filler injection, the improvement in your facial contours becomes evident immediately. Unlike other, more invasive procedures, you don’t have to wait to enjoy their benefits.

There’s no downtime. Depending on the number of injections you get, a dermal filler treatment can be as quick as 10 minutes. So you literally can have the procedure done during your lunch break then get back to your routine.

They’re non-invasive. As dermal fillers are injections, they don’t require surgery, scarring or a long healing period. Your risk of complications, including risk of infection, are low.

What Is Restylane Contour? 

Restylane Contour is a unique product that blends viscosity and flexibility to achieve cheek contours without a sharp or “alien” look. Using Restylane Contour means adding shape to your face, but with a very soft and natural-looking final result. With Restylane Contour, you do not have to worry about looking fake or “done.” You will be able to make dynamic expressions while correcting midface contour deficiencies.

Restylane Contour was FDA-approved in the United States in June 2021 for cheek augmentation and the correction of midface contour deficiencies. Restylane Contour is approved for use in adults over the age of 21.

Restylane Contour joins the Restylane family that uses proprietary technology known as XpresHAn Technology™ to allow for a natural look while maintaining your ability to make dynamic expressions.

How Long Does Restylane Contour Last?

In clinical trials, Restylane Contour was shown to last for at least one year after treatment.

Individuals who choose Restylane Contour also needed less injectable to achieve ideal aesthetic results compared to other products. Note: Individual results may vary, and the exact volume to be used can only be determined at the time of application.

Can Restylane Contour Be Combined With Other Dermal Fillers? 

Yes. Restylane Contour can be combined with other dermal fillers and injectables for the correction of midface issues. Dr. Peterson is highly skilled and comfortable applying injectables and can discuss what options are available to you.

Does Restylane Contour Work?

Yes, Restylane Contour was tested in 15 clinical centers around the U.S. and Europe and has been injected more than 1.5 million times to date.

Are Restylane Contour Injections Painful? 

No. The needles used for the injectable are optimized to reduce discomfort. The area is also treated with lidocaine before the injection to keep you comfortable.

How Is Restylane Contour Different From Restylane Lyft? 

The primary difference is that Restylane Lyft is meant to lift and hold its shape. In contrast, Restylane Contour lifts contours and is flexible, allowing for natural facial expression and a softer final cheek contour.

How Is Restylane Contour Different From Juvederm Voluma?

The popular injectable Juvederm Voluma lifts and holds its shape. As mentioned above, Restylane Contour raises, contours, and is flexible, giving you more natural facial expressions and a softer look for your cheeks.

Are There Side Effects to Restylane Contour? 

Rarely, some individuals have experienced bruising, redness, pain, swelling, tenderness and itching at the injection site. For more information, visit
