As we age, folds and wrinkles begin to appear in certain areas, while other places lose youthful volume, creating a worn, aged appearance. Through the use of cosmetic fillers, also known as dermal fillers, Urban Skin Solutions has helped thousands of our Charlotte patients achieve healthy, natural-looking and beautiful results.
If diminished facial volume or facial wrinkles are making you look older than you feel, dermal fillers may be the solution you’ve been waiting for. Schedule your personal consultation today to learn if dermal fillers are right for you by completing the form on this page or calling (704) 971-9191. Skin care expert Rachel Roff helps clients of every complexion, especially those with black skin, brown skin, and every shade of ethnic skin between.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are an effective, nonsurgical way to combat the effects of time by adding volume and reducing wrinkles. They use injectable materials which consist of biologically-derived, completely biocompatible substances. These quick and convenient cosmetic solutions are used to:
- Accentuate cheek bones
- Augment a receding or small chin
- Plump thin, flat lips
- Fill hollows beneath the eyes
- Reduce lines around the mouth
Dermal fillers can produce long-lasting effects, but they are not permanent solutions. For many, the semi-temporary nature of fillers is another benefit, allowing individuals to explore their aesthetic options without the risk of permanent change. It is important to discuss your goals and options with one of our highly-trained aestheticians. We will evaluate your unique situation and recommend solutions that are best for you.
At Urban Skin Solutions, we offer several types of fillers to match any need, budget and lifestyle.
Juvederm is a smooth injectable gel, designed to soften the appearance of aging by smoothing facial lines and restoring lost facial volume under the eyes and around the cheeks. Juvederm harnesses the power of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the human body and an essential building block for healthy tissue. In addition to plumping areas of depleted facial volume and acting as a source of internal skin hydration, Juvederm has been approved by the FDA to treat:
- Nasolabial folds (between the nose and mouth)
- Marionette lines (between the the nose and mouth)
- Vertical lip lines
Juvederm provides immediate, beautiful results that last between six and nine months.

Juvederm Voluma is the only FDA-approved injectable filler to address age-related volume-loss in the cheeks for patients over the age of 21. As you get older, your cheeks are among the first areas from where fat will descend downward, creating facial hollows and a less youthful facial appearance.
Because of its unique hyaluronic acid based formulation, Voluma tends to last longer than many other types of injectable fillers. Many of our Charlotte patients enjoy their results for up to two years.

Juvederm Volbella is a soft, smooth, hyaluronic acid-based filler that provides natural looking lip enhancement and wrinkle relaxation. It is ideal for addressing lip lines and imperfections under the eyes. Results last for up to one year.
Volbella also contains lidocaine, a numbing agent that greatly reduces any discomfort you may otherwise experience from this already comfortable treatment. Patients may feel a slight pinching sensation from the injections, but overall, this is a pain-free experience.
Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite molecules, which are naturally found in the body. These injections encourage the body’s natural production of collagen and instantly produce a plump, supple and smooth appearance. At Urban Skin Solutions, we use Radiesse to treat cheeks, smile lines and jowls.
Radiesse injections produce gorgeous, natural-looking results that last between 6-12 months. Unlike our other dermal filler options, the Radiesse formula must diminish naturally and cannot be prematurely dissolved.
- 1.5cc syringe: $699
- 0.8cc syringe: $499
Acne can be a challenging condition to treat, especially when cysts and nodules develop in the deeper layers of your skin. These uncomfortable bumps can last for months and, left untreated, can cause significant scarring.
Kenalog injections can successfully treat cystic acne and keloid nodules in the skin. The medication is injected directly into the targeted area, reducing inflammation and redness while flattening out the lesion. Healing begins almost immediately.

Dermal Filler Dissolve
Surgical solutions to facial rejuvenation can be painful, and the results are permanent. One of the many benefits of dermal filler injections is that the results gradually fade over time, unlike lip implants, for example. Left alone, many fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years. If you would like to dissolve a hyaluronic acid based filler before it naturally dissipates, we can help with a treatment of hyaluronidase.
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that promotes the depletion of hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronidase does not work on fillers such as Radiesse, which is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite.
