Injectable Fillers


Injectable fillers are non-invasive treatments that restore youthfulness to the face. Dermal fillers add volume, smooth wrinkles and creases, and rejuvenate your facial contours. Dr. Wald offers three types of facial fillers: JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and RADIESSE®.

What Are the Benefits of Injectable Fillers?

Reduced Wrinkles

Injectable fillers can provide you with a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. These fillers target and smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and creases (such as nasolabial folds).

Enhanced Volume

Aging and sun damage result in the gradual loss of facial volume and plumpness. Injectable fillers can restore volume to the cheeks, lips, and tear troughs.

Non-surgical Rejuvenation

Injectable fillers offer a non-surgical way to rejuvenate your facial appearance. These treatments can boost your self-confidence without the scars and recovery of surgery.

What Are the Different Types of Dermal Fillers?

Dr. Wald offers fillers that are FDA approved and provide the skin with additional volume and smoothness. These fillers target different parts of the face to give you the best results possible.

JUVÉDERM®

JUVÉDERM® is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occuring substance in the body that keeps the skin hydrated and plump.

JUVÉDERM® can:

  • Reduce wrinkles under the eyes
  • Restore cheek volume
  • Plump thin lips
  • Minimize smile lines
  • Increase jawline definition

Restylane®

Restylane® is also a hyaluronic acid filler that restores volume by attracting and maintaining moisture.

Restylane® can:

  • Fill nasolabial folds
  • Minimize creases around the mouth
  • Increase volume in the cheeks

RADIESSE®

RADIESSE® is made from calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a natural material found in your body that can improve the elasticity of your skin.

RADIESSE® can:

  • Smooth smile lines
  • Reduce marionette lines
  • Restore cheek volume
  • Add definition to the jawline
  • Correct depressions on the nose

Concerns

Immediately After

You can continue your daily routines right after the treatment. Your face may look a bit overfilled for a few hours until the injected material settles. Some patients develop temporary bruising, numbness, and redness. Any negative response to filler treatment can generally be alleviated in just a couple hours with some icing and massaging.

1 Day After

You can resume vigorous exercise after 24 to 48 hours.

1 to 2 Weeks After

Your redness and swelling will disappear, and your final results will show. Injectable fillers usually last between 6 and 18 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate for injectable fillers?

Candidates for injectable dermal fillers are over 18 years old and have no severe allergies or medical issues. Candidates for this non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure should be in good physical health, have realistic goals, and not smoke.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

Dermal fillers are priced per unit. Therefore, the cost of your treatment will depend on the volume of the injections and number of areas treated.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Injectable fillers provide temporary fullness. Depending on the dermal filler chosen, your results may last anywhere from six months to a year and a half. You can undergo repeat treatments to maintain your facial volume.

Are dermal fillers safe?

While severe complications are uncommon after using fillers, it is important to discuss the risks and any concerns you have with your doctor. Temporary side effects, such as acne-like skin eruptions, asymmetry, bruising, bleeding, skin rash, and skin redness may occur but generally resolve within a couple days.

What can injectable fillers not treat?

While injectable treatments restore volume and minimize fine lines, they cannot address significant tissue laxity. If you display moderate to severe signs of facial aging, injectable fillers may not be the treatment for you.

Surgical procedures, such as a brow lift, facelift, or eyelid surgery, may be recommended for a more comprehensive correction.
