Dermal Filler Options
We offer a variety of dermal fillers for instant improvements. Choices include:
These fillers can be combined with injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic, which our New Jersey locations also offer.
In many cases, the best way to treat wrinkles and facial lines is to fill them, giving the skin a smoother texture. Restylane is an injectable dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid gel, a biodegradable substance is naturally present in the human body, making it safe for almost any patient. Unlike some injectables, Restylane is not animal-based, so it is safe for most patients who are allergic to other products.
Restylane works in 2 stages. Immediately after being administered by one of our skin care experts, the gel fills lines and wrinkles for smoother skin that lasts up to 6 months. Eventually, Restylane is absorbed and processed by the body. During this process, the hyaluronic acid in the gel moisturizes the skin for even longer-lasting benefits.
Depending on the area to be treated, Restylane injections typically take between 10 minutes and an hour to complete. The process is essentially painless, and patients can return to their daily routine immediately after being treated. Restylane is also an excellent alternative for temporary lip augmentation.
JUVÉDERM XC Injectable Gel is a hyaluronic acid filler similar in composition to Restylane. However, JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is more highly concentrated than Restylane so its benefits last longer – typically more than 6 months, and sometimes significantly longer. JUVÉDERM XC is specially formulated with lidocaine for increased patient comfort during and following treatment. Many patients also feel that JUVÉDERM XC Injectable Gel produces more natural-looking results than those possible with Restylane.
The active ingredient in Sculptra is polylactic acid, and it is an ideal long-lasting wrinkle filler. It is also the best filler available for improving facial volume lost due to lipoatrophy, the loss of facial fat. As Sculptra is absorbed by the body, it encourages the skin to grow new collagen fibers, which improve the skin's firmness and elasticity. Aesthetic improvements from Sculptra often last as long as 2 years.
Perlane, like Restylane, is a hyaluronic-acid-based dermal filler. It contains a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid, making it ideal for larger folds and wrinkles. It can also be used to soften acne scars, augment the lips or other facial features, and fill hollows under the eyes and in the cheeks. In many cases, Perlane results can be maintained using Restylane.
RADIESSE is a gel filler containing tiny microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite. This substance occurs naturally in the human body, making it safe for almost any patient. As these microspheres are absorbed, they stimulate collagen growth for results that may last up to 2 years. In addition to filling wrinkles, RADIESSE is also popular for treating oral and maxillofacial defects and vocal cord deficiencies.
