Dermal Fillers

Take your look to a whole new level of stunning with JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and other dermal fillers. At our Ankeny dermatology clinic and spa near Des Moines, IA, we use these helpful gels to restore lost volume, smooth away signs of aging, and create a refined and elevated appearance.

At Revive, you’re in exceptional hands. Dr. Stefanie Gatica is the only Allergan® trainer in the state of Iowa, and our medical spa is in the top 1% of JUVÉDERM providers nationwide.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers work by adding volume below the skin to contour the area and smooth away lines and shadows. They are fantastic for:

  • Lip injections
  • Cheek augmentation
  • Chin augmentation
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Hollow tear troughs
  • Static lines and wrinkles

Some types of lines, such as frown lines and other lines caused by repeated movements, are better treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic. This product relaxes muscles to smooth away dynamic wrinkles. To achieve the best results, many people choose to have both BOTOX and fillers injected in the same appointment.

Which Dermal Filler Is Best for Me?

At Revive, we offer a range of different filler options for different treatment areas and concerns. Your experienced provider will recommend the best product for your unique goals.


This family of smooth gel hyaluronic acid fillers includes:

  • JUVÉDERM: Fills in various lines and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds.
  • JUVÉDERM Ultra: For delicate areas like around the mouth and eyes.
  • JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®: Adds sturdy volume to the cheeks and jawline.
  • JUVÉDERM VOLLURE®: Smooths away smile lines.
  • JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA™: Adds soft volume to lips and minimizes lip lines.


Another popular line of hyaluronic acid fillers, this family features:

  • Restylane: Fills in various wrinkles, lines, and hollow areas.
  • Restylane Lyft: Adds natural-looking volume to the mid-face.
  • Restylane Refyne: Softens moderate lines and wrinkles.
  • Restylane Defyne: Smooth away deeper lines and folds.


RADIESSE is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. We use this filler for liquid butt lifts and larger areas that need a more significant volume boost, such as the neck, décollete, abdomen, elbows, and knees.


Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which serves as a scaffolding for collagen production. Along with RADIESSE, we use a hyper-dilute form of this filler to treat larger areas of the body.

What Is It Like To Have Dermal Fillers Injected?

Dermal filler appointments are quick and minimally invasive, making them a favorite of our clients on the go. When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll take you back to a comfortable treatment room and have an in-depth conversation about the results you’re looking to achieve.

After designing a custom treatment plan, your injector will cleanse your skin and apply a topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable. Next, we administer a few quick injections to place the filler in carefully selected areas and create a gorgeous, natural-looking result. The whole process typically takes less than an hour.

What Is Recovery Like After Dermal Filler Injections?

While you’ll be free to return to your usual routine right away, it’s normal to experience some swelling and bruising for a few days following your injections. You can take acetaminophen (Tylenol) to manage any discomfort and gently apply ice to keep swelling to a minimum.

To minimize bruising and make the recovery process as speedy as possible, we recommend avoiding alcohol and blood-thinning supplements for 48 hours before your appointment.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Dermal fillers typically last between 6 and 18 months, depending on the formulation.

How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost?

The cost of dermal fillers at our Des Moines-area clinic depends on the amount and type of filler injected. We’ll discuss pricing during your consultation and provide you with a personalized estimate.

Where Do I Start?

What a wonderful place! Love coming here where I know the care and treatments are great and staff is well trained! Run don’t walk!

Love this place for many aesthetic services & dermatology. The customer service is amazing! Stef always treats me like family and does a great job! Stef has caught skin cancer early and I’m forever grateful. Jayden, the manager, is so friendly and has helped me get the best prices with Allē. Jayden even went above and beyond to help out a friend with saving money also! 5 stars!

Always enjoy going to Revive. The atmosphere and employees always make me feel welcomed and continue to produce results that make it the best med spa/clinic I've been to.

I love how much time this staff takes to answer questions. They are kind and very knowledgeable. I absolutely love working with Maria. She shows that she cares and always helps me with a smile on her face. She is just a genuinely nice gal who I trust and I know she always does her best to help me find what I need. She is not salesy and I appreciate that. I highly recommend Maria for your skincare needs.

Relaxed atmosphere with caring and hospitable staff. Procedures virtually painless with great results.

Tawnya was able to see me regarding some moles causing me concern. She removed the moles and sent them to the lab. As soon as my results were posted, she contacted me immediately with the news that everything was ok. I will be seeing her for regular checkups.

Dr Stef was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to help our daughter out with some skin issues. I can’t recommend this place enough!
