What are fillers?
Dermal fillers injectables that are designed to rejuvenate and enhance the face and body. There are different types of fillers, but each is composed of material that is compatible with the body and will slowly begin to break down over time. The common categories of fillers include the most popular hyaluronic acid fillers, based on a substance that hydrates, smooths, and plumps the skin, or synthetic fillers that are used to restore lost volume, reduce wrinkles and creases, and trigger the production of collagen to create a beautifully enhanced, youthful appearance that lasts between three months to five years, depending on the type of filler used.
Dermal fillers are injected precisely into various parts of the face or body. This treatment provides contoured facial lines and defined features, plump lips, smoothed wrinkles and creases, and youthful volume. Fillers are safe, highly effective, and minimally invasive, requiring no downtime.

Before and After
Your filler options
At Kaado MD, we provide a wide range of dermal fillers in Virginia Beach that can treat a number of concerns.
The Juvederm Collection
Juvederm softens deep folds and reduces wrinkles. It is based on hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance natural to the body that absorbs water, plumps and hydrates the skin. Juvederm rejuvenates the skin by restoring volume and hydration, enhancing the features and smoothing wrinkles.
- Volbella XC Volbella XC is designed for the lips and the skin around the mouth. It smooths the lines around the mouth and plumps the lips attractively, lasting for up to one year.
- Vollure XC Vollure XC softens and smooths deeper wrinkles, including nasolabial folds (smile lines). Results last for up to 18 months.
- Ultra Plus XC The Ultra XC filler is typically used to fill the lips. It can also be used on the face to smooth wrinkles, laugh lines, and folds. Results last up to one year.
- Voluma XC Voluma XC is thicker in order to restore lost volume in the cheeks and other hollow areas, which helps to smooth wrinkles and create a youthfully plumper appearance. Results last up to two years.
The Restylane Collection
The Restylane Collection is also based on HA and is designed to enhance the features and address a number of facial aging issues.
- Restylane and Restylane-L These dermal fillers can smoothe and correct severe folds and facial wrinkles, including smile lines (nasolabial folds), and it can be used to attractively plump the lips.
- Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine This product is injected more deeply into the skin structure to treat severe wrinkles and folds and to augment cheek volume, smooth deep wrinkles, lift the cheeks, and fill and smooth aging hands.
- Restylane Silk Restylane Silk is designed to increase lip volume and smooth lines around the lips (perioral wrinkles).
- Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne These dermal fillers correct moderate to deep smile lines and folds. Defyne can also help sculpt and project the chin. Refyne helps allow you to keep natural movement in your face and expressions.
The RHA Collection
The substance used in the RHA Collection of fillers is the closest to the natural hyaluronic acid already created in the body, allowing them to treat deep wrinkles without causing the face to appear stiff or unnatural. Because they provide a better range of motion, RHA fillers are the only FDA-approved fillers to treat wrinkles in the areas of the face that move dynamically, such as smile lines.
Sculptra is made from synthetic poly-L-lactic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body. Sculptra provides volume to fill hollows and diminish facial creases, and triggers a significant boost in the production of collagen. Collagen uses three treatment sessions to help the skin create more and more collagen. Sculptra can be used to augment breast volume and tighten the belly button, as well. Results last up to two years.
Radiesse is made with spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally-occurring substance in the body. Radiesse stimulates the production of collagen to plump deflated facial contours, smooth wrinkles, and fill deep folds.
Bellafill is a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) collagen filler. Bellafill provides volume and lift immediately with the first treatment. The substance continues to boost collagen to rebuild the structure of the skin. Bellafill reduces and smooths acne scarring, facial wrinkles, lines and creases. Results last for up to five years.
