Dermal fillers are injected to smooth wrinkles, lines, and folds or enhance your features. Many of the latest generation of dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based. HA is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that attracts and retains moisture. HA fillers add moisture and delicate, natural volume to aging skin.

What are dermal fillers?

Many dermal fillers are synthesized hyaluronic acid (collagen), a component found naturally in the body. Under a microscope, hyaluronic acid looks like water. After age 25, you lose 1 tablespoon of collagen a year.

What are the types of dermal fillers?

The Juvéderm line includes Ultra, Ultra T, Voluma and Volbella, hyaluronic acid-based fillers of various viscosity, meant for different areas of the face. These fillers typically last 18 months to 2 years. These fillers are hydrophilic, drawing moisture to the injected areas, which helps the skin. Even after the filler has dissolved, you will have a more rejuvenated appearance due to the hydrophilic effect.

What should I expect with dermal filler treatment?

This procedure takes approximately 20 minutes, depending on the areas to be treated. The filler of choice is injected just below the skin to enhance volume or fill in lines and wrinkles. Dr. Ostad uses microcannulas rather than needles to inject facial fillers in NYC. Microcannulas are blunt instruments, requiring only one insertion, which significantly reduces bruising, bleeding, and swelling.

Fillers are injected for lip enhancement, to smooth under-eye troughs, and to smooth away nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Microcannulas are an advanced technique that not all practices offer, as they require great skill, injection technique, and meticulous attention to detail.

Why choose Dr. Ostad for dermal fillers in NYC?

What is the recovery like after dermal filler injections?

There is little to no downtime after receiving dermal fillers in NYC. You may resume most normal activities right away. Avoid intense or strenuous physical activities for 24–48 hours after treatment to help minimize swelling and bruising. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, or lumps at the injection sites. Most symptoms can be alleviated with massage and cold compresses and will improve or resolve in a matter of hours or days.
