In today’s world of cosmetic enhancements, dermal fillers have garnered substantial popularity. They provide immediate and long-lasting results for various areas of the face.
The FDA has granted approval for a range of dermal fillers. Your options encompass:
Dermal fillers operate in diverse ways, primarily depending on their unique compositions. Hyaluronic acid fillers possess the remarkable ability to attract and retain water and improve fine lines and wrinkles. When injected into soft tissues, they enhance areas with volume loss, diminish depressed scars and plump up wrinkles.
Fillers like Sculptra, Radiesse, or Bellafil fall into the category of collagen-stimulating fillers. These fillers make the body produce more collagen, which makes the skin look better and more elastic over time.
Lip enhancement is one of the most common applications of dermal fillers. At Dermatology Circle PLLC we use FDA-approved lip fillers (Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Volbella XC, and Restylane Kysse). These fillers achieve fuller lips, improve lip contour, correct asymmetry, and add volume.
Temple hollow treatment represents an advanced and refined dermal filler approach. This procedure is crucial for achieving a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. It helps restore the face’s natural shape and gives a slight lift to the upper face and eyebrows.
Nasolabial fold treatment is popular for people who want dermal filler treatments. There are two ways to enhance these facial features: direct and indirect. In the direct method, a needle or cannula injects fillers into the fold. The indirect method lifts the upper face, cheeks, and temples to improve the fold.
In our practice, we employ a specialized technique to combat perioral wrinkles. By injecting fillers to the skin’s surface, we create a smoother, more youthful look. Some refer to this as the “blanching” or “fern technique”. Dermal fillers also allow to slightly elevate the corners of the mouth.
It is important to note that not everyone is a candidate for dark circles treatment with fillers. This is because there are numerous factors contributing to the presence of dark circles, including eye bags and puffiness. An initial in-person consultation is of paramount importance when a patient is considering this type of treatment.
You can address under-eye darkness through two distinct approaches. Direct treatment injects filler into hollow areas, while indirect treatment improves cheek structure to support the under-eye area. We use different fillers, including Restylane Enlight, an FDA-approved filler made for this area.
With the increase in screen usage, individuals are becoming aware of horizontal lines appearing on their necks. To address this concern, one effective approach is the superficial injection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. We particularly favor Belotero Balance filler because of its precise injection technique and its ability to yield rapid enhancements.
A well-defined chin plays a vital role in achieving a natural and harmonious facial appearance. Chin enhancement with fillers is a versatile solution for women who want a softer chin. It is also beneficial for men who desire a square and masculine contour. We use special fillers such as Juvederm Voluma XC and Restylane Defyne.
A lot of individuals aspire to have a sleek and well-defined jawline. Men, in particular, usually prefer a square and sculpted jawline to enhance their masculine appearance. In our clinic, we utilize specific dermal fillers such as Juvederm Volux and Radiesse.
Cheek fillers are another popular option for those looking to enhance their facial features. By adding volume to the cheeks, we can create a more youthful and lifted appearance. At our practice, we offer a range of cheek fillers such as Restylane Lyft, Restylane Contour, and Juvéderm Voluma.
People often overlook the issue of losing volume on the back of their hands. To solve this, we use Restylane Lyft and Radiesse fillers, chosen for their ability to give the best results.
Biostimulatory fillers have proven to be highly effective for various body areas. Injecting fillers like Radiesse and Sculptra in various body areas boosts the body’s collagen production. This process not only enhances skin texture but also contributes to a noticeable improvement in skin tightness.
Hip dips are small curves or depressions on the outer sides of the hips. Injections of biostimulatory filler Sculptra can achieve improvement of hip dips. You may need 10 to 20 vials of Sculptra to achieve the best results and lessen those depressions on your hips. This same treatment is an effective treatment for localized areas of cellulite.
Certain dermal fillers provide optimal skin hydration through subcutaneous injection. These specialized fillers, known as “skin boosters,” have gained immense popularity worldwide, particularly in Europe and Asia. In recent developments, one such skin booster, Juvederm Skinvive, has secured approval in the United States.
We administer Skinvive to the very superficial layers of the skin, focusing on enhancing hydration without creating additional volume. The effects are remarkable, resulting in increased skin hydration, a radiant complexion, improved texture, and a reduction in small wrinkles.
This versatile treatment is suitable for all skin types and ages, with results lasting for up to 6 months. Typically, you need 2-4 syringes to achieve the desired result.
Dermal fillers play a pivotal role in the treatment of atrophic acne scars. By injecting them beneath the surface of depressed scars, they work to elevate and smoothen the scar tissue. For addressing atrophic acne scars, we often turn to Sculptra and Radiesse, recognized for their effectiveness in this context.
Non-surgical nose job uses injections to enhance the shape of the nose, without the need for surgery. This injection treatment can lift a droopy nose tip, straighten a curved nose, or lower the nostrils without surgery. Non-surgical nose jobs are effective but complex, so only a certified doctor should do them.
The liquid facelift uses dermal fillers to inject the face and fix hollows, wrinkles, and folds. This procedure is perfect for people who aren’t ready for a complete surgical facelift and want to avoid surgical procedures.
The amount of filler needed for a liquid facelift can vary based on the patient’s condition, treatment areas, and desired outcome. Even with multiple syringes, the results still look natural and avoid appearing overfilled or fake.
Dermal fillers are both safe and highly effective when administered by licensed and trained professionals. Injecting dermal fillers requires an extensive understanding of anatomy, knowledge of your medical history, expertise, and a keen artistic eye. Choosing a board-certified dermatologist means you get an FDA-approved product, ensuring good results with few problems.
Dermal fillers can cause potential side effects like swelling, bruising, changes in skin color, or lumps and bumps. The most common side effects of dermal fillers are temporary with short recovery time. If the filler enters a blood vessel, it can cause serious problems. These problems include skin ulcers, tissue death, and very rarely, vision problems.
When considering which dermal filler has the longest-lasting effects, there isn’t a universal answer. Most hyaluronic acid fillers last up to 12 months. Sculptra and Radiesse have demonstrated prolonged efficacy. The duration of filler results relies on a variety of elements, and influencing this outcome remains a complicated task.
Injection of dermal fillers is typically a painless procedure. Most filler formulations contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Furthermore, we take extra steps to maximize your comfort by applying a topical numbing cream before the procedure. To feel better, take acetaminophen before and after the procedure to ease any slight discomfort that might occur. Any slight swelling, tenderness, or discomfort after treatment is usually temporary and lasts only a few days.
Dermal filler treatments are cosmetic procedures and are usually not covered by insurance, even for face defects. To get a clearer understanding of the associated costs, we recommend referring to our price list. However, it’s important to note that the pricing can vary based on the specific procedure and the type of filler utilized. We may offer discounts in instances where a liquid facelift requires multiple syringes.
In NYC, dermal fillers cost around $650 to $1200 per syringe, depending on the type of filler chosen. It’s crucial to exercise caution when encountering significantly lower prices, as they may be too good to be true. Extremely low prices may indicate the use of non-genuine products or a provider with less experience in injecting dermal fillers.
The quantity of filler required varies based on specific concerns and the targeted treatment area. Usually, a syringe of filler has 1 ml, like a big blueberry.
If a patient adheres to regular maintenance, it’s possible to achieve noticeable improvements with as little as one syringe. However, the approximate quantities required for various areas are as follows:
We suggest patients start with one or two syringes of dermal fillers and gradually increase if necessary. It’s important to understand that dermal fillers require a few weeks to fully settle. They may attract water, and the final result becomes evident after some time. This progressive approach ensures fewer complications, and heightened satisfaction, and allows the patient to become accustomed to their enhanced appearance.
