Dermal Fillers Philadelphia

Facial and hand fillers for the Havertown, Main Line, PA, Delaware Valley, and greater Philadelphia Area

Dermal Fillers & Injectibles Philadelphia: Mind Your Skin draws from multiple communities (Havertown, Broomall, West Chester, Media, and Springfield; the Main Line towns of Bryn Mawr, Ardmore, Wynnewood and Narberth).

Wrinkles and folds are among the most obvious signs of aging. A multitude of reasons cause these unwanted lines to form on the face and elsewhere. The loss of collagen and other vital skin elements is a primary cause as time goes by. Mind Your Skin offers dermal fillers for Philadelphia and Havertown-area patients who want to address this gradual depletion. Norbertus Robben, MD restores a youthful smoothness, structure, and contour to the skin. He adds the filler where it is best deployed. Treatment sessions last a mere 20 to 30 minutes, but can yield results that last all the way up to 18 months, depending on the area and the filler used.

We carry three families of hyaluronic dermal fillers—Juvéderm® , Restylane® and Teosyal®—each with multiple sub-formulas for specific treatment areas and results. We also offer Radiesse® for heavier folds and contouring. Dr. Robben brings years of experience and skill to each injection session, working to administer the ideal version and amount of dermal fillers in the targeted area to produce beautiful and natural-looking results.

What Are the Basics of Dermal Fillers?

First, it is important to understand that youthful skin gets its texture and resilience mainly from three molecules. These are collagen, fat, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Collagen is what gives skin its strength, structure, and flexibility. Hyaluronic acid fills that collagen-built structure with moisture as it binds to water molecules. Elastin ensures that skin pulled out of shape will not stay stretched out, but will return to its resting state.

Young people have these three molecules in abundance in their skin. But ultraviolet solar radiation, environmental damage, and age-related degradation cause their levels to drop throughout a person’s 20s, 30s, and beyond. Without sufficient amounts of these vital elements, skin loses volume and grows lax, leading to wrinkles and sagging. In addition, underlying fat pads shrink and even the bony skeleton changes shape. Because of all of this, there is generally a deepening, downward turning, and descent of important features.

Purposeful use of the various Dermal Fillers & Injectibles

Collagen and hyaluronic acid and fat loss typically lead to the formation of:

    • nasolabial folds from the nose to mouth
    • “parentheses” that frame the mouth even on relatively young faces
    • downturns and marionette lines between the mouth and chin
    • teartroughs
    • earlobe creases
    • prejowl fold
    • flat cheeks
    • cheek crease; chin crease
    • shallow temples
    • vein/tendon showing on hands

Dermal fillers counter that loss by replenishing water content and/or volume. Mind Your Skin’s dermal fillers are gels of hyaluronic acid, with the formulas made especially to bring more youthful levels of hydration back into the skin. Radiesse®, which has a calcium-based formula, is available as well.

In addition, we now have SkinVive by Juvéderm. Though made of hyaluronic acid as well, it is a pure hydrator, nòt a volumizer. It is also injected differently, using a microdroplet technique. You can learn more about in on our new SkinVive page

Juvéderm® XC (Extra Comfort)  Dermal Fillers

Juvederm® XC reduces the appearance of these lines. The latest additions to this family are Vollure® and Volux®

Juvéderm Volux® XC (“Juvéderm Jawline”)


JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC is an injectable gel designed to improve jawline definition in patients with moderate to severe loss of jawline definition. Adding volume to improve the shape and structure of the lower face helps provide smooth, long-lasting definition in the jawline for adults over 21 years of age.

How long does JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC last?

JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC lasts up to 1 year, with optimal treatment.

What are the potential side effects of JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC?

Most side effects were mild or moderate in nature with duration of 14 days or less—35% of side effects lasted up to 30 days. The most common side effects were temporary reactions at the treatment site, such as tenderness, lumps/bumps, pain, swelling, firmness, bruising, redness, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.

How does JUVÉDERM® VOLUX®XC work?

JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC is a crystal-clear gel that is injected into the jaw to improve jawline definition. It temporarily adds volume to augment the shape and structure of the lower face and results in improved jawline definition in adults over the age of 21. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain.

Juvéderm Vollure® XC

Due to its ability to stretch and recoil with normal expression movement in the area, this dermal filler excels at addressing nasolabial folds. In addition, Juvéderm Vollure® XC has a formulation that lasts longer than most hyaluronic acid fillers in the skin.

JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE XC injectable gel is indicated for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds) in adults over the age of 21.

Juvéderm® Ultra/UltraPlus XC

You may have had thin lips since birth.  Ordinarily, a gradual reduction in volume happens over time as collagen breaks down faster than it is replaced. Patients who want a fuller, plumper look can choose the Ultra version of this dermal filler to add noticeable volume to their smile; UltraPlus is more resilient and better deployed at downturns, marionette’s lines and areas of volume loss.

Juvederm UltraXC_left facing_RGB_2000pxJuvederm UltraPlusXC_left facing_RGB_2000px

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® UltraPlus XC injectable gels are indicated for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).

Juvéderm Volbella® XC

Sometimes lips need a more subtle boost, as opposed to an obvious increase in fullness. This dermal filler provides just that! Juvederm Volbella® XC reduces the severity of vertical lip (“smoker’s”) lines as well, and also other lines on the face that are of an ‘etched-in’ nature.

This link takes you to a representative treatment example with Volbella

Juvederm VolbellaXC_left facing_2x55_RGB_2000px

JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA XC injectable gel is indicated for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral rhytids in adults over the age of 21.

Juvéderm Voluma® XC

Unique among the Juvederm® family of dermal fillers, Voluma®focuses on midfacial contours. Volume—and thereby roundness—to the “apple” of the cheek, corrects for loss of collagen and fat that can lead to a flat or hollow look. Since volume loss in the midface also causes sagging, this filler can serve to provide a “liquid facial lift”. Vycross® crosslinking technology extends the longevity of this filler’s results (after full correction) up to 18 months.

Juvederm VolumaXC_left facing_RGB_2000px

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC injectable gel is indicated for deep (subcutaneous and/or supraperiosteal) injection for cheek augmentation to correct age-related volume deficit in the mid-face in adults over the age of 21.

Teosyal® RHA Collection by Revance

This family of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers has FDA approval for treatment of dynamic facial wrinkles and folds. These types of issues occur over time in areas of the face where there is repetitive motion, such as around the eyes, lower cheeks and the mouth. Teosyal® RHA is designed to adapt to your facial movements and preserve a natural look both at rest and expression.

Teosyal® RHA developed in Switzerland uses a gentle manufacturing process with few chemical modifications. This helps preserve the natural structure of the HA by integrating within the skin and mimicking the natural HA found in your skin. This is different from other HA fillers, that use a high heat manufacturing process.

The unique properties of each product (simple going by numbers 2, 3 and 4), enable us to address specific and varying needs.

The RHA family of hyaluronic acid fillers combines  stretch and resilience. This means they are designed to maintain their integrity after stretching, bending, and being compressed.

RHA 2, 3 and 4 contain lidocaine for enhanced injection treatment comfort. Bruising is possible with all injectables. As with other HA products, Teosyal® RHA fillers can be reversed if the need arises.

Revanesse® Versa Dermal Filler

Revanesse® VersaTM is another hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds.

In clinical trials more patients treated with a comparative product experienced swelling than patients who were treated with Revanesse® Versa™.

A Revanesse® Versa™ treatment is minimally invasive and provides immediate results. Take control of the signs of aging and ask your healthcare provider if Revanesse® Versa™ is right for you.

Revanesse® Versa™ can improve  nasolabial folds (laugh lines) for up to 12 months with optimal correction.

The Revanesse® Versa™ formula is well-studied, with no serious adverse events reported.


Revanesse® Versa™ is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler in the US available in a 1.2mL syringe size.

Whether you require more product to be brought to full correction or are seeking a more cost-effective treatment option; 20% more product in the syringe is another example of the Revanesse® difference providing patients the best possible results.

Radiesse® Dermal Filler

This filler is useful to reduce the appearance of deeper facial wrinkles and folds. It is well suited for facial contouring and addresses volume or bony deficits. Radiesse® is also adds volume to the backside of the hands. There it creates a more youthful look pushing back against an excessively crêpey and or veiny appearance.

What is a Dermal Fillers Session Like?

To begin with, Dr. Robben leads a complimentary consultation so patients can explain the cosmetic issues they want to be addressed. He then works with him to decide on the ideal treatment strategy.  The actual injection session can be as brief as 10 to 15 minutes. Specifics depend on the dermal fillers being used and which area(s) of the face is/are treated.

There is a slight pinching sensation from the tiny needle when a dermal filler is administered. Subsequently, this can at times be followed by swelling, redness, discomfort, or bruising—all expected to be minimal. Afterward, any such side effects should fade within days, if not hours after a session.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Results Last?

Generally, the volume-adding nature of dermal fillers causes results to be visible right away. Full integration though takes a week or two, as the hydrating benefits of hyaluronic acid take hold.

Dermal fillers gradually dissipate over time. Some last six months or so, and others up to 18, before re-treatment becomes needed. Mind Your Skin offers a long-term Maintenance Program. This especially suits patients who want to ensure their youthful look lasts as long as they want it to.

Fillers have different characteristics. Hence no single answer is apropos as to how long dermal fillers are going to last.


COVID-19 update. Delayed dermal filler inflammatory events very rarely occur with both hyaluronic acid and non-hyaluronic acid fillers. Evidence suggests these reactions can be immunologically triggered by viral and bacterial illness, vaccinations such as the influenza vaccine, and dental procedures. These rare adverse events are temporary and respond to treatments such as oral corticosteroids and hyaluronidase, and often resolve without treatment. Given currently available data, patients already treated with dermal fillers should not be discouraged or precluded from receiving vaccines of any kind. Similarly, patients who have had vaccines should not be precluded from receiving dermal fillers in the future. Specifically, with regard to the Moderna mRNA-1273 trial, there were a total of 3 reactions possibly related to dermal fillers out of 15,184 vaccine recipients. It is unknown how many subjects in the trial had previous treatment with dermal fillers.
