Find out which dermal fillers will best meet your cosmetic goals.

The idea of aging isn’t fun for anyone, especially when it’s clearly visible on your face. Did you know that one reason aging is so visible is Fillersbecause of volume loss? As we get older, our skin thins out and cheeks begin to hollow. Our bodies also don’t produce as much collagen and elastin, which keeps skin taut and firm. Luckily our Charleston, SC, cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Joseph Myers, Jr. offers different dermal fillers to address and reduce these signs of aging.


Here are the different injectable fillers we offer here in Charleston, SC.


If you are dealing with moderate-to-severe creases and folds, or want to improve the shape and contour of your cheeks and face then Radiesse might be right for you. Unlike other dermal fillers, Radiesse is not used to plump up lips.

Results: Lasts up to one year or more


Belotero Balance

Another hyaluronic acid filler, Belotero Balance is also designed to improve facial volume and structure while targeting lines around the mouth, as well as moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth (also known as nasolabial folds).

Results: Lasts anywhere from six to 12 months


Juvederm XC

Juvederm XC is a series of fillers that are designed to improve the contours of your cheeks and boost volume, as well as plump up thinning lips and reduce the appearance of those vertical lip lines (“smoker’s lines”).

Results: Lasts anywhere from six to 18 months



Restylane is another series of dermal fillers that are designed to smooth away lines, wrinkles and folds while also improving volume and plumping up lips. Those with more severe folds and wrinkles (e.g. nasolabial folds) as well as those dealing with a loss of cheek volume may benefit from Restylane Lyft, which is a thicker solution.

Results: Lasts anywhere from six months to 18 months, depending on where it is administered
