Here at JSpa Medical Day Spa we offer the following dermal fillers:
With dramatic improvements over the traditional sharp tip needle, the microcannula is becoming increasingly popular with many non-surgical dermal filler procedures. The flexible design and blunt tip allow for more invasive procedures to be safely performed with less downtime and no bruising.
Belotero is a dermal filler used to visibly reduce the signs of aging by smoothing out fine lines and deep wrinkles. Belotero® is also used by Dr. Jacono to help with adding volume to lips, to plump or add volume to the cheeks and the temples, and to give definition and contouring to the chin, and in some cases, Belotero® is used for non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures.
Juvederm® Ultra XC is a popular dermal filler in Long Island that is used to fill deep facial wrinkles and lines. Juvederm® Ultra XC is in fact one of the most popular dermal fillers in the entire US and generally one of the most stable injectable fillers.
Voluma™ is another popular Long Island facial filler that is part of the Juvederm family of hyaluronic acid fillers. It was designed to restore lost volume to areas of the face such as your cheeks, cheekbones, and your chin.
Sometimes called Radiance or even the “Lunch Hour Lift”, Radiesse is a safe injectable filler that is used to help reduce or even eliminate deep facial wrinkles and folds.
Restylane® is a dermal filler that has been used by Dr. Jacono and his staff since it was introduced into the market. So what is Restylane® exactly? It is a hyaluronic acid (a sugar molecule) that is FDA-approved to help treat face wrinkles and fine lines.
Sculptra® is an injectable made from a non-harmful synthetic material that is used to treat areas of facial fat loss by restoring volume.
What is the difference between neuromodulators and dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers help to combat static wrinkles and lines that are the result of aging. They can help fill in depressions and plump areas plagued by volume loss. Many dermal fillers, including Juvederm and Restylane, are formulated with naturally derived hyaluronic acid, which helps to hydrate the skin, giving it a more youthful glow.
Neuromodulators such as BOTOX and Dysport function in a different way. They address dynamic wrinkles that form as a result of repeated muscle contractions. Facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, or squinting leave deep trenches over time, but BOTOX can reverse these creases, making you appear more refreshed and relaxed. Neuromodulators are made with a medically safe form of botulinum toxin type A and work by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that allow the tiny facial muscles to contract.
Are there any risks with dermal fillers?
Serious complications after dermal filler injections are rare, but there are some potential risks. These include the following:
- Skin eruptions
- Skin rash
- Poor cosmetic result
What can I expect in terms of downtime?
Dermal fillers are non-invasive and non-surgical, so there is no lengthy recovery period to deal with. You will be able to return to work or school immediately after your session. Some minor side effects may include swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the injection site, but these symptoms tend to fade quite rapidly, usually by the end of the day at most. Many clients simply use makeup to mask any temporary discoloration.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Results with dermal fillers are not permanent, but they can last as long as 2 years, depending on the formulation. Results with Restylane, Juvederm Vollure XC, and Juvederm XC can last up to 18 months, while Voluma XC and Sculptra results can last as long as 2 years. Results with Restylane Silk for the lips typically last about 6 months.
