Dermal fillers are minimally invasive, convenient, and long lasting. They are best known for anti-aging treatment, filling in wrinkles, folds, and replacing lost facial volume. At our New York office, we use a variety of dermal fillers to turn back the clock, as well as sculpt and enhance facial contours.
Dr. Ostad uses microcannulas to inject his patients with dermal fillers, rather than needles. Microcannulas can be used for the lips, under eyes, nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Microcannulas are blunt instruments, requiring only one insertion into the patient, and significantly reduces patient bruising, bleeding & swelling. Microcannulas are an advanced technique that not all practices offer. It takes great skill, technique, and time from the physician.

All fillers used in our office have been tested for safety and efficacy, and approved by the FDA. Many can be used off-label to treat additional areas of the face and body. The best choice depends on a wide variety of factors, including severity of volume loss, the area to be treated, your ultimate goals, and more.
Dr. Ostad will conduct a comprehensive examination and consultation before recommending the best solution to your concerns. Often, a customized treatment plan includes different fillers used in different areas to achieve the best possible results.
