As we age, our face changes shape and starts to lack its natural volume. Dermal fillers in Westchester by Dr. Joshua Fink can help restore your youthful contours and appearance. Fillers such as Juvederm, Juvederm XC, Restylane®, Perlane, Belotero and Radiesse are used to improve the volume of the face. The use of cosmetic and dermal fillers can soften the nasolabial fold (smile lines), improve the volume of the lips, and help lift the lower two-thirds of the face.
A majority of dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Juvederm XC, Restylane®, Perlane and Belotero, are derived from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a substance naturally found in your body. HA fillers are not permanent, and they tend to disappear gradually over 6-12 months. Radiesse is a different type of filler and is not derived from Hyaluronic Acid.
With any injection, there can be certain side effects including bruising, swelling, and small nodules that may sometimes be felt under the skin. Bruising and swelling typically subsides within a week and most nodules tend to resolve themselves over time. In our experience, the swelling from Radiesse may last slightly longer and proper candidate selection is crucial.
The appropriate choice of filler will be determined based several factors, such as our clinical recommendation, your expectations, the area being treated, and the results desired. Dr. Joshua Fink will help you determine which treatment or combination of treatments is best suited for you. Learn more about the dermal fillers our Westchester office provides below.
