As we age, our faces begin to portray those years, causing smile lines, wrinkles, and other creases to appear. Fortunately, here at Delaware Valley Dermatology Group LLC in Wilmington, DE, Dr. Michael Saruk can use dermal fillers to help diminish those wrinkles and lines, restoring a more youthful look.

What Are Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are gel-like, injectable substances that are injected beneath the skin. They are able to restore volume, reduce wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. They are considered a safe and cost-effective way to look younger without the downtime that surgery can bring.

What You Can Expect During Treatment

Dermal filler injections are easy to administer, with the entire process resembling these two steps:

  • Pre-Treatment Consultation: During this visit to our Wilmington office, you will discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals, and review your medical history with Dr. Michael Saruk. These actions ensure that you will be satisfied with your treatment options.
  • Injectable Filler Treatment: The injection are will first be cleaned and numbed using a local anesthetic. Depending on the type of filler used and the area that is being treated, results should begin to show immediately. However, full effects won't be achieved until a few days later

What Dermal Fillers Can Do

  • Enhance facial contours
  • Soften wrinkles and creases
  • Bring back facial symmetry
  • Create the appearance of fuller lips

If the body had it's own personal fountain of youth, collagen and elastin production would be it. From helping to speed up the healing Fillersprocess for wounds, cuts, burns, sun damage, and acne scarring, young and fresh looking skin is all about the collagen. Along with a healthy lifestyle and a good skincare routine, a clear and youthful complexion needs collagen production to maintain its firmness and glow. But as we age, collagen and elastin production begin to slow down, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles and sagging, brittle skin. Cosmetic (also known as dermal) fillers help to keep your skin looking firm and youthful against the aging process. Dr. Michael Saruk, the dermatologist at Delaware Valley Dermatology Group LLC and the dermatology team provide a number of cosmetic and medical dermatology services in Wilmington, DE.

Look Younger with Dermal Fillers in Wilmington, DE

Fillers work a little differently than Botox, which temporarily paralyzes muscle movements in strategic areas to minimize the formation of lines and wrinkles. Fillers are also an injectable, but they add volume around the mouth and cheeks to "fill out" hollow or sagging skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Fillers use hyaluronic acid, which like collagen is produced by the body and plays an important role in everything from wound healing to that youthful volume in the face.

Like collagen, the body's natural production of hyaluronic acid begins to slow down as part of the aging process. Fillers restore that lost volume, giving your skin an instant "boost" that can last for months at a time.

Some of the benefits of fillers include:

  • Younger, plumper looking skin and lips
  • Hydrated skin, a key to slowing down the appearance of wrinkles
  • Can be preventive
  • Look natural (when applied by a licensed professional and applied in moderation)
  • Results from individual treatments can last for months

When used in conjunction with a good skincare routine, healthy diet and lifestyle, and protection from sun damage, fillers from your dermatologist can make you look and feel your best at any age.

How your dermatologist in Wilmington, Delaware can help you look your best

Youthful SkinYou have probably heard a lot about dermal fillers. You may even know someone who has had dermal filler treatment. Now, you may be wondering if you are a good candidate for them. What can dermal fillers do for you? The truth is they can help you look younger by smoothing out the early signs of aging, ie fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Michael Saruk at Delaware Valley Dermatology Group in Wilmington, Delaware offers dermal fillers and many other services to help you look your best.

Why Dermal Fillers?

You are an excellent candidate for dermal fillers if you both have fine lines and wrinkles and want to look younger. As you age, your skin loses moisture and elasticity, meaning when you show facial expressions like laughing or frowning, your skin won’t “snap back” as it did when you were younger. That’s how fine lines and wrinkles form. You may find them:

  • At the corners of your eyes, where they are known as crow’s feet
  • Running across your forehead, where they are known as furrows
  • Between your eyebrows, where they are known as glabella
  • At the corners of your mouth, where they are known as marionette lines

Dermal fillers work by plumping your skin, essentially filling in the fine lines and wrinkles in the process. During treatment, the liquid filler material is injected into your skin. The number of injections will vary depending on the area treated and your individual characteristics. Your skin will appear dramatically smoother after treatment.

Dermal filler treatment is very popular because it is:

  • Quick, taking only a few minutes
  • Long-lasting, with results that remain for 6 to 18 months
  • Inexpensive, often costing less than other cosmetic services

If you want to look your best and take years off of your face, you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. If you want smooth, younger-looking skin, you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. The truth is just about everyone who wants to look their best is a good candidate for dermal fillers!

Smooth away fine lines and wrinkles and take years off your skin.dermal fillers

We think everyone would love to turn on the news and hear that someone has discovered the Foundation of Youth. Of course, while this scenario may be far from possible, there are more practical and realistic ways to improve the youthfulness of your skin. Our Wilmington, DE, dermatologist Dr. Michael Saruk offers a variety of dermal fillers, a simple treatment that can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and have you feeling younger in minutes.

What are dermal fillers?

This simple facial rejuvenation treatment is a great way to freshen the skin and to painlessly eliminate early signs of aging. Dermal fillers are a special injectable that when administered into the skin smooths away lines and wrinkles and increases skin’s firmness and fullness, as loss of skin’s volume occurs as we age. In some cases, dermal fillers may even be used to achieve fullness in the lips.

A major benefit to getting dermal fillers is that there is no downtime. We know that keeping your skin looking youthful and healthy is important but that there are a lot of people who don’t want to turn to more invasive measures to do it. In this case, dermal fillers may be right for you. It only takes a couple of minutes to administer these thin needles into the skin and you can go right back to your routine immediately after.

Which dermal filler is right for me?

Here in Wilmington, DE, our skin doctor offers a variety of dermal fillers to meet everyone’s individual and unique needs. We will first sit down with you to discuss your treatment goals and what issues you are looking to fix. From there, we will create your custom dermal filler treatment plan. In some cases, dermal fillers may be used in conjunction with other treatment options to achieve the results you want.

The dermal fillers we offer include:

  • Restylane®
  • Juvederm®
  • Juvederm Voluma®
  • Restylane Lyft®
  • Restylane Silk®

While these fillers offer a lot of the same benefits, some will last longer than others. Restylane is also the only dermal filler that can plump up lips. Restylane and Juvederm are both made up of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring within the body and helps gives skin its fullness. As we get older our bodies do not produce as much hyaluronic acid, causing our skin to hollow and cave in certain areas. These dermal fillers can help fill out these hollow areas and plump up the skin.

If you want to refresh your appearance and don’t want to turn to more aggressive cosmetic treatment, then dermal fillers may be just what you need to get younger results quickly. Call Delaware Valley Dermatology Group in Wilmington, DE, to learn more about how dermal fillers can help you.

Dermatologists help people maintain good skin health, but at Delaware Valley Dermatology Group in Wilmington, DE, Dr.Hair Removal, Botox, Dermal Fillers Michael Saruk and staff also help people achieve their best look! Below are a few of the cosmetic procedures that our patients use to keep their skin not only healthy but beautiful as well.

Hair removal

Shaving to remove unwanted body hair is time-consuming, inaccurate and temporary, not to mention all the various nicks and cuts that inevitably go along with it. With laser hair removal from your Wilmington dermatologist, the distracting hairs that grow under your arms, on your legs, on your stomach or anywhere else can be removed permanently. Using a specialized laser that targets the hair while leaving the surrounding skin untouched, we can make smooth, clear skin a reality!


Wrinkles are formed by repeated muscle movement after many years. Since the muscles around the eyes and between the forehead are constantly used when smiling, frowning, talking and squinting, deep, noticeable wrinkles can form in these areas. To combat these unwanted signs of aging, your Wilmington cosmetic dermatologist can inject Botox from a tiny, precise needle to these muscles, causing them to stop moving for a few months, allowing your skin to smooth out and leave a much more refreshed and youthful appearance behind.

Dermal fillers

Like Botox, dermal fillers are an injectable, minimally-invasive way to rejuvenate your facial features. However, fillers from your cosmetic dermatologist in Wilmington are used for different purposes in different areas of the face. When the skin ages and the fat beneath it starts to dissipate, it can leave you with unwanted contours, lines and hollow spaces. Fillers "plump" these areas up - most often the lips, lower eyelids, and lines that form between the corners of the nose and mouth - to give you a firmer and more youthful appearance.
