What are “dermal fillers?”
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that help diminish wrinkles and lines. They can also restore or accentuate bone structure and facial shape/features for a more youthful appeal.
Why would I want a dermal filler?
The natural effects of aging are the most prevalent reasons for seeking dermal fillers.
Aging causes a reduction in the subcutaneous fat in your face. When you lose that subcutaneous fat, your skin rests more closely on your facial muscles, allowing marionette lines (laugh lines) and crow’s feet show up more clearly. So it’s this extra plumpness that helps your face look fuller and smoother.
The loss of subcutaneous fat in your face also makes that skin sag and stretch some. This can make your face appear gaunt and less youthful.
You might also seek dermal fillers near me in Wayzata to combat environmental or hereditary factors, including sun exposure, lifestyle choices, and your inherited genes.

Different dermal fillers for different results
Dermal fillers in Wayzata come in various formulations, different brands, and different applications.
You can implement different, specific products and techniques to achieve different goals. For example, you might be targeting your lips for fullness. For your jawline, you can use other dermal filler formulations to define your bone structure. And the same goes for filling in your under-eye hollows, or smoothing out your brow wrinkles.
Dermal filler choices at Vively Body Science
The minimally-invasive injectables at Vively Body Science provide the ideal way to get the subtle-yet-wowing look you’ve always wanted. Whether you’re looking for a wrinkle-free smile or a youthful lift for aging skin, our dermal fillers may be the perfect fit.
Through dedicated research on the safety and efficacy of our products, Vively is proud to offer the following choices.
Our Revanesse dermal fillers are FDA-approved, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a sugar naturally produced by your body.
HA can hold 1000 times its weight in water, with most HA found within the body and present within the skin. As we age, HA amounts decrease in the skin, causing fine lines and wrinkles.
By injecting HA dermal fillers into the skin, you can restore that volume loss for a more youthful appearance. Revanesse manufactures their line of dermal fillers from the highest quality HA, for results that should last 6 to 12 months.
Revanesse Versa+ treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds, in patients 22 or older. You’ll get immediate results in reducing or removing those facial wrinkles and folds. It’s also a terrific remedy for tear troughs, which makes it a Vively staff favorite.
We use Revanesse Lips+ for submucosal implantation for lip augmentation in patients 22 or older. You’ll enjoy fuller, more defined lips.
The JUVÉDERM brand offers 5 different dermal fillers near me in Wayzata. Your Vively aesthetician can discuss the applications for your cheeks, chin, lines, and lips. Our Favorite?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel is for deep injection in the cheek area. Voluma can help correct volume loss from aging, and it can also augment your chin region to improve your chin line and profile. This treatment is for adults over 21.
The Restylane (pronounced “Rest-uh-lin”) family of products is a comprehensive collection of fillers designed to address specific concerns for your face and hands. Restylane is terrific at helping Vively clients achieve natural-looking volume and a smoother, fuller appearance.
Sculptra brand injectables activate your skin’s natural regenerative process by helping to replenish lost facial collagen. This FDA-approved product has a more subtle approach, gradually restoring your facial volume.
Allergan, now part of AbbVie, brings multiple brands to Vively’s selections. This selection includes a wrinkler eraser that’s not exactly a dermal filler.
Did you know BOTOX isn’t the name of a treatment? It’s actually a brand of injectable involving onabotulinumtoxinA. This injection temporarily prevents specific muscles at the injection site(s) from moving.
Those repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause the formation of facial lines. FDA-approved BOTOX temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe forehead lines (glabellar lines) and crow’s feet.
BOTOX vs dermal fillers
There’s a major difference between BOTOX and dermal fillers. BOTOX doesn’t fill in the wrinkles and lines like dermal fillers do. BOTOX relaxes muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It works better on the upper ⅓ of your face, whereas fillers work their magic on the rest.

Age limits—or not—for dermal fillers near me in Wayzata
You have to be at least 22 years old for Vively to consider dermal fillers as part of your aesthetic regimen. After that? Let’s talk!
Getting older happens
The signs usually start in earnest during our late 30s and early 40s. Frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet crop up—growing more noticeable with age. Plus, that’s when subcutaneous fat begins to disappear in our faces, a significant factor as we hit our 50s and 60s.
Dermal fillers truly shine at this time, providing revived volume and restoring that inverted triangle shape to your face. Men like dermal fillers, too, for the very same reasons.
Younger candidates can certainly benefit from dermal fillers, but for different reasons. You may not have earned your laugh lines or crow’s feet yet. Instead, you might be looking to emulate the look of celebrities and influencers who inspire you.
Another reason younger people might want dermal fillers in Wayzata is to improve your bone structure. Your cheeks and jaw might lack fullness, not because of your age but because of your genetics. Dermal fillers can provide a non-surgical, minimally-invasive way to address your concerns.
