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?

After your treatment, you will need to refrain from alcohol use and any strenuous activities. Avoid travelling for at least 24 hours and make sure to get plenty of rest. You should also avoid makeup or any harsh skin care products as it may irritate your skin. 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 12 and 24 months, depending on the type and placement for the filler.

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. Dr. Stef specializes in full face rejuvenation and her team of talented injectors can provide a roadmap to get your goals obtained.

I’ve been going to Revive for several years. I’ve always had a great experience with everyone from the front desk staff to the dermatologists to the estheticians. The VIP program is amazing! Highly recommended!

Thank you so much Alyssa! We appreciate the review!

Revive is the best dermatology clinic I have ever been to! After suffering from trial and error at the last clinic I went to, I was very hesitant to go to Revive. Right away, everyone was so caring and accommodating. I have never received such amazing service from any clinic I have been to, but Revive is leaps and bounds greater than your ordinary dermatology clinic. I received the hydra-facial from Maria, and I did not want to leave! The experience was amazing and the service was outstanding. The facial itself was incredibly relaxing and Maria walked me through the steps in the facial process since I had never received one before. Carissa at the front was so friendly and welcoming as well. I was seen right away and felt like everyone truly cared about my overall experience at the clinic. I would recommend Revive to anyone who is looking for dermatology services! I will be back!

Business Owner replied on Dec 29, 2022:

Thank you Natalie, we appreciate your trust with us and the kind words! We love Maria!

I called several dermatology clinics and was unable to see anyone soon. Revive was able to do a Tele health visit the same day with me! Tawnya was kind and knowledgeable. I would recommend this clinic and return if needed!
