Our Refined Techniques

Our treatment philosophy at Destin Plastic Surgery is to enhance your facial features without creating an “overdone” appearance. This conservative approach ensures we use just enough filler to get the desired results. All too often we are asked to correct an issue that was created by other injectors who overdid the treatment.

Even though we cannot guarantee an absolutely painless procedure, we use local anesthetics to numb areas for injection to minimize discomfort. Dr. Burden has developed advanced techniques for numbing injection sites. Both Dr. Burden and Bill Edelman are very experienced with the advanced numbing techniques they use for injectable treatments. Taking the extra effort brings back happy patients!

What Are Dermal Fillers?

There are several different types of fillers, but they all share a common goal—to enhance a specific area of the face by creating additional volume. We use dermal fillers that are formulated using hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a material that’s produced naturally by the body, so allergic reactions are virtually unheard of.


vollure xc packaging

Each filler in the JUVÉDERM product line of HA fillers is specialized for specific facial features.

VOLUMA XC is designed to add volume to your cheeks, giving you a smoother, natural-looking contour and a more youthful look. It is the longest-lasting HA filler available and can last up to 2 years.

VOLLURE XC is designed for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It is the longest-lasting HA filler for this area, lasting up to 18 months.

ULTRA XC and VOLBELLA XC are both designed for lip augmentation. ULTRA XC injections result in plump, natural-looking lips, or they can enhance the fullness of the lips. VOLBELLA XC adds volume for a subtle enhancement and can soften the appearance of lip lines. They can last up to 1 year, longer than any other HA fillers for the lips.

VOLUX™ XC enhances and sculpts your jawline, adding attractive volume to improve facial symmetry and shape. It is the first and only HA filler approved by the FDA to restore definition to the lower face. Results are highly customizable and can last up to a year.

SKINVIVE™ is a unique HA microdroplet injectable that improves the natural moisture and soft texture of the cheeks for supple-looking, hydrated skin. It is the first injectable of its kind to be approved by the FDA. Results last for up to 6 months.

Do You Offer Other Types Of Fillers?

Yes, we offer the following additional HA fillers:

  • Restalyne® Refyne
  • Restalyne® Defyne
  • Restylane® Kysse
  • RHA® 2
  • RHA® 3
  • RHA® 4

The right filler for you depends on your individual needs and cosmetic concerns. Our injectors will recommend the product best suited for your needs.

Can Fillers Be Combined With Other Treatments?

In addition to providing wrinkle-reducing skin care and lip injections for our patients from Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Valparaiso, and beyond, dermal fillers can be combined with BOTOX Cosmetic for a liquid facelift and with other med spa treatments to create remarkable transformations for patients without undergoing surgery.

How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost?

At Destin Plastic Surgery, the cost of dermal fillers is about $600 to $800 per vial. Some areas may require more filler than others, so prices can vary. The following information can be used as a general guideline for average cost per area:

  • $650 to $675 for folds around the mouth
  • $650 to $675 for the lips (may require more at a later date, depending on desired fullness)
  • $650 for under the eyes
  • $825 to $850 for the cheek or jawline contour, or chin sculpting

Costs vary from patient to patient, and we will provide a specific price quote before your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Is A Candidate For Dermal Fillers?

The best candidates for filler injections are patients who wish to:

  • Diminish or eliminate lines around the mouth, eyes, or other areas of the face
  • Add volume to their upper and lower lips
  • Smooth lines and indentations under the eyes
  • Enhance the cheekbone area
  • Improve lost definition in the jawline

Some patients want to address multiple areas during a single treatment session.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Fillers?

Filler injections create a more youthful, healthy appearance by adding volume to the areas of the face that have become lax or droopy.

How Long Do Dermal Filler Results Last?

When used to treat lines or indentations around the eyes and other areas of the face, results are usually maintained for 6 to 9 months, although some patients may see results last as long as a year. When used to add volume to the lips, results last about 5 to 9 months. SKINVIVE typically leaves the skin looking hydrated for up to 6 months. JUVEDERM VOLUX XC can last up to a year, while JUVEDERM VOLLURE XC results can last up to 18 months, and the results of JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC injections can last up to 24 months.

How Long Does A Treatment Session Take?

In most cases, a procedure takes 45 minutes or less.

Do Dermal Filler Injections Hurt?

Sensitivity varies among patients, and some areas of the face are naturally more sensitive than others. However, ice and numbing creams can be used to ensure that treatments are administered quickly with relatively little pain. The lips can be numbed completely prior to treatment, if preferred, using several tiny injections. Also worth noting is that the fillers themselves are pre-mixed with lidocaine, a numbing agent, to minimize discomfort.

When Can I Schedule A Dermal Filler Appointment?

Appointments are available 5 days a week for your convenience.
