A dermal filler injection is a pharmaceutical grade liquid or gel material injected beneath the skin to get rid of laugh lines and nasolabial folds, fill deep frown lines, erase crow’s feet, raise drooping eyebrows, eliminate deep forehead creases, plump thin lips, correct facial asymmetries, and more. 

Nurse practitioners, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, nurses and medical aestheticians provide these services and should be highly trained and certified in the field of cosmetic injectables. In general, Botox is used for the top half of the face, and dermal fillers are used for the bottom half. The main areas where dermal fillers are injected are the nasolabial folds, around the mouth, and marionette lines.
