About Dermal Fillers

Most facial fillers consist of injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. HA is naturally found within the human body, so HA-based fillers carry almost no risk of allergic reaction or other unwanted side effects. When injected into the skin, dermal fillers bind with HA that’s already present; this amplifies the volume of the skin around the injection site. Injecting HA also increases the production of collagen, a protein that keeps the skin strong, supple, and hydrated. Gradual improvements in skin condition, therefore, follow the immediate contouring effects of fillers.

We also use Radiesse®, which is a type of dermal filler that utilizes calcium hydroxylapatite to plump and smooth the skin. This active ingredient also helps the body produce more of its own natural collagen, similar to hyaluronic acid, so your results and natural-looking and long-lasting.

How Are Dermal Fillers Used?

Dermal fillers are frequently used to correct signs of age-related volume loss. They can fill in deep wrinkles (like smile lines) and smooth out hollows around the eyes and cheeks, for example, giving the face a fuller, more youthful look. The collagen-boosting effects of HA may even make the skin more resistant to further creasing and stretching.

Dermal fillers are also excellent sculpting compounds. Adults of all ages can use dermal fillers to accentuate certain features or create balanced, symmetrical facial proportions. At Art Plastic Surgery, we use fillers to perform non-surgical chin augmentation, jaw augmentation, lip augmentation, and rhinoplasty. We can also use fillers to correct blemishes, such as acne scars.

The Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Not only are dermal fillers safe, but they’re also generally painless. Most patients can return to all their normal activities immediately after having fillers injected. There’s no need to take time off work to rest.

Dermal filler appointments usually take between 15 minutes to an hour, and you won’t have to be sedated during your appointment. We’ll numb your skin with a local anesthetic to prevent discomfort. We can also provide ProNox™, a sedative medication that is inhaled and helps patients feel greatly relaxed during their time in our office.

The duration of the effects created by dermal fillers depend on the filler used and the location of the injection, but can last from six to 18 months, so that you won’t need frequent top-up injections. If you want to maintain your results, we recommend seeing us once every six months.

HA-based fillers are available in a variety of different consistencies that are designed to treat specific issues. Thicker fillers are ideal for adding volume, filling hollows, and reshaping the chin, jaw, or nose. Thinner fillers, on the other hand, are excellent for filling in the lines of softer, thinner tissue, like the eyelids or lips. At Art Plastic Surgery, we provide our patients with the full suite of both Allergan and Galderma fillers, including Restylane®, Restylane® Lift®, Bellafill®, and Juvéderm®. We also use Merz products, like Radiesse®.

When you visit us for a consultation, we’ll review your cosmetic goals and choose the right fillers to meet your needs. Dr. Cozzone and Dr. Zapiach often use more than one type of filler during treatment to create flawlessly natural, personalized results.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dermal Fillers

Yes. Dr. Cozzone and Dr. Zapiach perform non-surgical facelifts that consist of dermal filler injections, neuromodulator (e.g., Dysport®) injections, and non-invasive skin tightening. We use Ultherapy® or ThermiTight® to firm the skin of the lower face and neck and laser skin resurfacing. Our non-surgical facelifts are comprehensive procedures designed to eliminate wrinkles, restore facial contours, fill facial hollows, and create a pleasing overall facial shape.

When you choose a board-certified plastic surgeon to inject your fillers, you’ll be receiving a safe, legal product. Untrained, unqualified injectors have been linked to numerous reports of serious side effects because they often use unregulated products and poor injection techniques. Furthermore, our surgeons have an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy that allows them to choose the right injectables for every patient and every purpose. You won’t end up with an “overfilled” look when you visit our experienced plastic surgeons.

Most patients don’t experience any discomfort after having this treatment. However, patients sometimes notice mild tenderness or bruising around their injection sites. In rare cases, they also experience feelings of tightness while their fillers “settle.” These symptoms are temporary and generally wear off on their own within a few days.
