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.

Thank you so much for your kind review! We can't wait to see you again!

My fiancé and I are new to the Ankeny Iowa area and I needed to see a dermatologist. First and foremost, it is a fantastic environment. Not cluttered, clean, professional and polite. I saw Nikki Roetman the first visit. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Very well versed outside of normal dermatology. The second visit I was blessed with the help of Dr Stef Gatica, she was very fun to work with. We were able to joke and have a good laugh. With the help of Aubrey I have had nothing but pleasant professional visits. Highly recommended to go hear and get taken care of the right way

Business Owner replied on Feb 9, 2022:

Thank you very much! It was a pleasure meeting both of you!

I saw Nikki at the clinic and she was so thorough and sweet! She makes you feel comfortable and goes over everything with you in detail. Highly recommend!

Hi, Megan. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive experience. We truly appreciate it!

I’m an NP that recently did a Botox training with Dr. Stef. She is very knowledgeable and skilled-an excellent resource for all things skin! I learned so much. I appreciated the 1:1 training. The day was fast paced which allowed for several opportunities for me to inject but also personalized enough for me to gain the skills to inject independently. I highly recommend.

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

Thank you Katie! I had a lot of fun with you and you did a great job! Can't wait to watch you grow in your skills!

Thank you Dr Stef for coming to our office to share your wealth of knowledge and skills. Your years of experience and technique methods that you offered during our training was amazing.

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

Thank you Melanie! It was so nice to meet all of you!

I had such a great day training with Stephanie on jawline and chin filler. It was my first time using cannula’s as well and she did an amazing job teaching and training. What a fun Friday

Thank you Lizzie! You have been a lot of fun to work with! - Dr. Stef

A friend with glowing skin recommended me to Revive to see skincare specialist Stephenie Ganske. I went in for my consultation, and began my skincare prescription. Within days my skin was already beginning to glow! Friends and family were commenting on my skin, asking me if I had on makeup ( I did not) what I was using! I coined the term "GanskeGlow" to describe my results. Stephenie is a guru, and I can not thank her enough for my renewed skin and of course that "GanskeGlow" 😉

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

Vivette, thank you for your kind words! We love the term "GanskeGlow" that you came up with! Can't wait to see you soon!

I had a great experience at Revive! Dr Stef is very thorough and so easy to talk to about your skin health concerns. I am a permanent clinical Dermatology patient for sure!

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:
