Dermal Fillers are non-invasive, injectable treatments that can be administered to restore lost volume and soften wrinkles and skin folds in the face, neck, and hands. Dermal fillers are used to plump lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, eliminate wrinkles and improve the appearance of scars.
Dermal fillers can effectively treat:
- Nasolabial folds (laugh lines from the nose to the mouth)
- Marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin)
- Contour shallows (Hollowness around the eyes, cheeks, temples)
- Atrophic acne scars
- Thin lips
- Vertical lip lines
- Oral commissures (corners of the mouth; frowning mouth)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Non-surgical augmentations of chin, nose, and cheeks
- Hand rejuvenation
What is the downtime for dermal fillers?
After your filler treatment, you may return to normal activities immediately. You may experience mild tenderness, swelling, redness, bruising, lumps/bumps, itching, and discoloration at the treatment site. These side effects are usually transient and typically resolve within 1-7 days.
Are fillers safe?
All dermal fillers that we use at Sofia’s Med Spa are bought directly from each company that makes them, and all of our fillers we use are FDA approved for cosmetic treatments.
At Sofia’s Med Spa, all of our injectables are administered by master injector and physician, Dr. Sophie Simeakis. Dr. Simeakis is an expert on cosmetic fillers and offers a wide range of different fillers to achieve the best result for each patient.
The Juvederm® collection of fillers are injectable gels made from modified hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. Every type of filler in our Juvederm® collection contains an anesthetic to help reduce discomfort during your treatment.
Juvederm® Ultra XC and Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC are fillers in the collection that are used to treatment a range of areas including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, oral commissures, thin lips, and vertical lip lines.
Q: How long does Juvederm® last?
A: Both Juvederm® Ultra XC and Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC are FDA approved to last up to one year.
Juvederm®Voluma XC is specifically designed to add volume to gently lift and contour the cheek area. As we age, our cheeks flatten and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by loss of fullness or what esthetic professionals refer to as “age-related midface volume loss.”
Q: How long does Voluma last?
A: Juvederm®Voluma XC is the first and only filler proven to last up to 2 years.

Bellafill Acne Scar Correction
Q: What is the physical and emotional impact of acne scars?
A: Acne is the most common skin disorder in the U.S., affecting up to 40–50 million Americans. A significant number of acne sufferers go on to develop devastating scarring. Physician and patient market research shows relatively low satisfaction with many treatments, and patients having to make trade-offs between efficacy, longevity, safety, downtime, and cost.
Scars are more than skin deep, and have been shown to cause high levels of anxiety and self-consciousness.
In an independent study 92% of people said if their acne scars were healed, it would restore or improve their self-confidence.
Now with Bellafill®, acne scar sufferers have a new treatment choice approved by the FDA that is proven to be safe and effective with minimal to no downtime.
