Facial Fillers are also referred to as “Non-Surgical” Face Lift. Most of these Facial Fillers last up to a year, and are ideal for people who are not yet ready for a Face Lift Surgery. And the result is immediate, making it quite convenient. Facial Fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® XC, Radiesse®, Belotero® and Restylane®, are products that are designed to fill certain areas on the face to smooth out folds and creases. Some Facial Fillers are designed to be injected in the thinning lips which would give the “Youthful” looking appearance. Facial Fillers by Dr. Gregory Diehl can make you look younger by smoothing out the lines around the mouth and around nose, and as well as plumping up the thinning lips that also indicate an aging face.
At your consultation Dr. Gregory Diehl, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Port Jefferson Station, Long Island, New York, will discuss all aspects of Facial Fillers with you. Dr. Diehl will also determine whether you are a good candidate for the Facial Filler Treatment.
JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that Dr. Gregory Diehl uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. JUVÉDERM® XC is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With JUVÉDERM® XC you get the smooth results. Everyone’s skin ages differently and JUVÉDERM® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds. Made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, Radiesse® is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure giving you immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and providing long-lasting and beautiful results. In many patients, the effects of Radiesse® may last a year or more. Radiesse® is a convenient treatment that stimulates the body to produce new collagen — often with just one or two office visits.
Belotero® is a dermal filler that has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).
Restylane® is one of popular soft tissue filler today. Both Radiesse® and Restylane® work well for lip augmentation, and to smooth out small wrinkles around the mouth and lips. Skin is made up of a combination of collagen proteins, elastic fibers, and a substrate called hyaluronic acid. These unfortunately decline as we age, and the skin loses its fullness. The injectable fillers such as Restylane® are designed to replace the components that we lose as we age.
To reduce the risk of adverse side effects, it is important that your Juvederm®, Radiesse®, Belotero® and Restylane® Facial Filler Injections are administered by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has extensive experience. Dr. Diehl has treated many patients with Facial Filler Injections and has given them a good reason to SMILE!
