Using soft tissue fillers for facial rejuvenation and aging
Soft tissue fillers, commonly called dermal fillers, are cosmetic injectables available at many dermatological practices in Washington, DC, and Annapolis, Maryland. Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery is a Board-Certified professional who can assist patients in enhancing their skin with injections such as dermal fillers and neuromodulators. These can be used together to create the ultimate “liquid facelift” and can provide results for several months.
What brands of fillers are available?
At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, we offer our patients a wide selection of quality dermal fillers, most being hyaluronic acid fillers that add volume right where needed for noticeable facial rejuvenation. Some of the brands available include:
- Juvederm Ultra®
- Juvederm Voluma®
- Prollenium Revanesse – Versa+
Which soft tissue filler injectable is right for me?
Each injectable dermal filler brand has its pros and cons, and Dr. Cheryl Burgess can work with patients to determine the most appropriate one for their specific concerns. Some are better for filling fine lines, while others are better suited for moderate to severe folds of the face. Some may be best for adding volume to larger areas, such as the cheeks, as they can provide added volume to the treatment area and help stimulate collagen production for long-term results. Most are made with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the skin and assists in attracting water directly to the injection point.
What can I expect from my dermal filler appointment?
Injections are done by our Board-Certified dermatologist, allowing patients to feel at ease with their treatment. Our team works closely with patients to show them where the injections will be made and what to expect immediately after their treatment. These gel-like injections fill deep lines, wrinkles, and folds to achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin in a single visit, with results lasting several months before reinjection may be required to maintain the results.
Aftercare instructions are minor, and patients are only urged to take care of their skin with a proper skin care regimen to enjoy the long-term results of these injectables.

FAQs / Questions asked by patients on the Filler procedure
Dr. Cheryl Burgess describes dermal fillers as biostimulators of collagen and hyaluronic acid injectable gels designed to add volume where needed, mostly in areas where fine lines, wrinkles, and folds have developed.
Patients with mild to moderate signs of aging on the face may be considered for dermal filler injectables.
Most dermal fillers available at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery will last 6 months to a year before reinjection is needed. This can vary from patient to patient, especially when taking into consideration the actual severity of the wrinkles and folds being treated and the rate at which the body absorbs the hyaluronic acid gel.
All cosmetic injectables available with Dr. Cheryl Burgess are approved by the FDA for esthetic use.
