What Are Dermal Fillers in NYC?

Dermal fillers are injectable gels used to restore lost facial volume. They are comprised of substances that naturally occur in the body, such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, or poly-L-lactic acid. Fillers are typically used to fill in lines and wrinkles that occur with aging; however, they are also used to enhance facial contours, including those of the lips, cheeks, and jawline, and address depressed scars.

As a minimally invasive treatment that offers limited downtime, fillers are typically quick and easy, with most treatments taking approximately 15 to 30 minutes. During your consultation, your provider will assess your facial anatomy and determine injection points, creating a natural look.

How Do Fillers Work in Manhattan?

Aging is a complex process that can involve the loss of volume, facial fat and shifting of underlying connective tissue on the face. This can great a hollow and even gaunt appearance in addition to the presence of fine lines and wrinkles. The quality of your skin can also change with time due to the loss and under production of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin.

Filler formulas vary in their components and textures. Each formula is designed for a specific purpose, from lip augmentation to addressing wrinkles and volume loss in various areas of the face. The most common dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which adds volume and retains moisture in the treated area. Other fillers, like Radiesse® or Sculptra®, provide volume while stimulating natural collagen production. These fillers may take time to present their full results while still creating dramatic initial results.

What Can Dermal Fillers Treat In NYC?

Every year, more than a million people choose dermal fillers to look their best and feel self-assured. Both men and women choose fillers as a fast, effective, and minimally invasive option for slowing the signs of aging. Often, fillers eliminate or delay expensive surgeries that have lengthy downtimes and risks of serious side effects.

Areas commonly treated with dermal fillers include:

  • Undereye Bags
  • Sunken Cheeks
  • Marionette Lines/Chin
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Thin Lips
  • Smile Lines
  • Nose
  • Neck
  • Temples

With so many filler options available these days, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. Depending on your concerns, preferences, and the treatment area, we will work closely with you to explain the differences and help you make the best choice. 

Juvéderm® is a line of hyaluronic acid fillers that instantly add volume, redefine contours, and provide lift. They address wrinkles and folds in multiple facial areas with results that last 6 to 12 months after your initial treatment and up to 12 to 18 months after successive treatments. 

  • Juvéderm Ultra®
  • Juvéderm Ultra +®
  • Juvéderm Vollure®
  • Juvéderm Voluma® 
  • Juvéderm Volux®
  • Juvéderm Volbella®

Revance Therapeutics’ RHA® resilient hyaluronic acid (RHA) filler collection addresses the signs of aging, including dynamic wrinkles. These fillers adapt to facial areas that are in frequent motion. As constant activity quickly breaks down fillers, RHA fillers move in the same manner as natural tissue. 

  • RHA Redensity®
  • RHA 2®
  • RHA 3®
  • RHA 4®

Sculptra® is a biostimulatory filler that encourages collagen production, restoring lost volume over time. As the body ages, natural collagen and elastin production slow down, leading to thinner and less resilient skin. Sculptra® contains poly-L-lactic acid that works deep in the underlying structures of the skin, encouraging skin to create volume for subtle, long-lasting results that look natural.

As a versatile treatment, Sculptra® rejuvenates and restores multiple facial areas, including:

  • Smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles
  • Hollowed cheeks and sunken temples
  • Jawline definition

Radiesse® is a versatile synthetic dermal filler comprised of calcium hydroxyapatite, another substance naturally found in the body. It provides immediate volume while stimulating collagen production. With long-lasting results of six months to three years, Radiesse® adds volume and contour to the jawline and cheeks and addresses deep skin folds and wrinkles. It’s also effective for jawline definition, temple augmentation, and the hands. When “hyperdiluted,” it is also used for skin laxity and overall texture of the skin.

Manhattan Dermal Filler Procedure Overview

On the day of your filler procedure, we ask you to come to our office with clean, moisturized skin. We will review the details of your filler procedure and answer any final questions you have.

Many of our dermal fillers contain lidocaine to reduce discomfort. However, it’s important to address your pain concerns before beginning your filler treatment.

Dermal fillers will be strategically administered in the targeted areas. Depending on the location and number of treatment areas, fillers typically take 15 to 30 minutes.

As injectable fillers require virtually no downtime, patients can resume most normal activities immediately. Side effects may include redness, swelling, or bruising; however, these effects should resolve without intervention within 48 hours. Cold packs may help alleviate these symptoms.

When Will I See My NYC Injectable Filler Results?

Depending on the filler used, many patients notice some results immediately following treatment. Hyaluronic acid fillers not only instantly add volume to the area but will continue to improve your youthful look by attracting moisture to the area.

Some injectable treatments, such as Sculptra® and Radiesse®, gradually develop subtle, natural-looking results over several weeks. These fillers also act as collagen-stimulating treatments, encouraging your body to produce more collagen to continue improving your skin’s overall appearance.

Dermal Filler FAQs in NYC

Dermal fillers refer to a type of cosmetic injectable used by dermatologists for facial rejuvenation. When injected, dermal fillers create volume and soften fine lines, improving bone structure, skin laxity, and textural concerns. Botox®, on the other hand, is a neurotoxin used to diminish fine lines and wrinkles by minimizing muscle contraction. When these muscles are no longer able to fully contract, the lines created with muscle movement are diminished.

Most dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid molecules, a naturally occurring sugar found in our skin. These particles are humectants and therefore allow your skin to remain hydrated and healthy.

During your cosmetic consultation, we will help pick the best filler(s) to address your facial concerns and bone structure. There are many different types of fillers with different unique properties, allowing each to be used best for different cosmetic concerns. In general fillers can provide volume/structure, correct asymmetry, diminish fine lines and wrinkles and improve the shape/appearance of lips and tear trough areas.

Dermal fillers are most often used for the face; however, they can be used all over the body if used properly and injected by an experienced dermatologist. Within the face, the most common locations include the lips, under eyes, cheeks, jawline, temples, nose, ear lobe and neck. Other common areas we inject at Park Ave Derm are the backs of the hands.

The length of time that your filler will last can vary greatly. However, most fillers can last between 8 months to 2.5 years depending on the type of fillers and how much filler was injected.

There is a small amount of pain during filler injection. Most patients tolerated the procedure just fine since fillers often contain numbing medicine in the product, which lessens pain as the procedure moves forward. Some areas like the lips can be more painful however.

There can be some downtime after filler treatment. Most often there is about 2-3 days of swelling and slight soreness. However, it is possible to sustain a significant bruise from the needles used to inject the filler. If a bruise occurs then the downtime will be more significant.

Results of filler injection are highly dependent on the quality of your injector and their overall aesthetic. The more experience and expertise your injector has the better results you can experience. At Park Ave Derm, our goal is to provide the most natural yet impactful results by appreciating each patient’s unique anatomy and specific goals. We strive to make our patients look more youthful, well rested, and satisfied.

While all dermal fillers offer temporary results, you may be surprised at how long some fillers last. Most of our filler options can last from six to 12 months. Lip fillers often last for one to two years.

The longevity of your results may depend on your skincare regimen and sun avoidance techniques, metabolic response, the treated area, and the filler used. To maintain your radiant, youthful results, the expert injectors at Park Ave Derm will help you set up a schedule for touch-up treatments.

New York City filler costs will vary by patient, depending on your individual needs and goals, the treatment areas, the filler used, the number of units required, and the expertise of your injector. During your consultation, our experts will determine the scope of your procedure and estimate your injectable filler cost.
