Dermatology, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in New York City (NYC) and Manhattan
As we age, our faces naturally lose volume. The body begins to store fat in other places, causing our face to change. The result can be sunken cheeks, hollows under the eyes, deep nasolabial facial folds, and hanging sagging skin. Injectable fillers, also called dermal fillers or facial fillers, are synthetic compounds (hyaluronic acid) that can restore facial volume to give you a more youthful, fresher appearance.
There are many injectable filler options. This page contains some basic information, but the best way to learn whether they are right for you is with a personal consultation. Please call (888) 610-3133 or email us today to schedule a consultation at Juva Skin and Laser Center in central Manhattan.
What can you treat with injectable fillers?
Injectable fillers are designed to replace volume lost by your face, resulting in a prematurely aged appearance. The fillers can correct many signs of aging caused by a loss of volume, including:
- Hollows under the eye
- Sunken cheeks
- Deep laugh lines - Nasolabial folds (sometimes called parenthesis lines around the mouth)
Injectable fillers can also be used for lip augmentation, depressed scars, deep lines around the mouth, thin lips due to aging or genetics and sagging skin on the hands. Facial wrinkles will see great improvement with BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport , Xeomin or Laser skin tightening.
Injectable Fillers We Offer
The first injectable filler popularly used was collagen, generally obtained from cows. Collagen gave great results, but required allergy testing and the results were sadly short-lived. In response, there have been many developments in injectable filler technology to improve the safety, effectiveness, and longevity of injectable fillers. We are always evaluating newly developed fillers and offer all the ones we believe give good results. The fillers we currently use are:
- Restylane and Restylane Lyft
- Silicone (for acne and other atrophic scar treatment)
The right filler for you depends on your aesthetic goals. There are even time where we will combine certain injectables together in order to offer you a liquid facelift.
Why Choose Juva Skin and Laser Center
Injectable fillers are safe, with few risks other than the slight risk of an allergic reaction, but that doesn't mean that you should trust just anyone to perform your filler injections. When poorly performed, injectable fillers can look unnatural, not provide enough correction, or not last as long. In particular, lip augmentation and the filler Sculptra require a deft hand to give optimal results.
At Juva Skin and Laser Center, our injectors are all highly trained and experienced in working with injectable fillers, and we utilize microcannulas that allow for smaller, more precise injections and less bruising. Our facility is recognized worldwide, and other doctors come from around the world to learn how to perform injections at our facility.
