Dr. Giyaur performing dermal filler injections on patient

Dermal fillers in Brooklyn

Gone are the days of overfilled “pillow faces” and “ape-like” upper lips. Most of our patients today want their friends and family to not notice the filler in their faces, but to simply recognize that they look overall more youthful, attractive, and refreshed. Dr. Julia Giyaur brings over a decade of extensive experience in facial aesthetics to every patient she works with.

What are dermal fillers?

After the age of 30, collagen production significantly decreases and continues to slow due to the aging of collagen-producing cells. Dermal fillers (also called facial fillers) are cosmetic injections that plump the skin from underneath, working to hide lack of volume in areas such as the eyes and jawline, as well as hiding the appearance of wrinkles and folds which develop as the face begins to sag with age.

What can facial fillers do?

  • Erase fine lines of the face
  • Smooth moderate to deep creases
  • Replace lost facial volume 
  • Lift tissues (cheeks, nasal tip, jawline, etc.)
  • Sculpt and contour features 
  • Define lip borders 
  • Volumize/plump lips 
  • Erase lip lines (“smoker’s lines”)
  • Correct overly stretched earlobes

How to self-test for collagen loss

SNAP TEST: Pinch your skin lightly away from your lower eyelid, and then let it go. Does it snap back into place right away, or does it return sluggishly? If so, you have collagen loss.

PINCH TEST: Pinch your cheek and notice what happens in the area around it. Are there fine lines that formed? If so, you have collagen loss.

Before & After Dermal Fillers

Am I a candidate for dermal fillers?

If you would like to address age-related concerns such as wrinkles, folds, lines, and creases, along with volume loss in the cheeks, lips, and temples, but you are not yet ready for an invasive surgical procedure, dermal fillers are the perfect solution. These products are typically made with biocompatible hyaluronic acid that works to create supple, hydrated contours that are more youthful and inviting. Dermal fillers come with no downtime or discomfort, and treatment can be performed in less than 30 minutes on average.

Popular procedures that involve dermal fillers

Cosmetic injections play a big role in many of our signature procedures, including the liquid facelift, our Total Face ReJunoVation treatment, and aesthetic facial balancing. While dermal fillers are quite effective on their own, these procedures often combine them to achieve enhanced results in a pre-determined, multi-pronged approach. 

What are the different types of dermal fillers?

At our Brooklyn medi-spa, we use only FDA-approved facial fillers. The list continues to expand as more and more options become available.

Hyaluronic acid fillers

  • Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most commonly used type of facial fillers. They are made of hyaluronic acid which is naturally present in our bodies but is lost with age
  • Can be used safely anywhere on the face
  • Can also be used on the backs of hands
  • Results lasts from 3 months to 2 years
  • We mix and match to achieve the best results
  • Many options available 

Calcium hydroxyapatite fillers

  • Used for deep facial wrinkles and hands
  • Lasts approximately two years
  • Lifts and volumizes
  • Works by stimulating collagen production

Poly-L-lactic acid fillers

  • Works by stimulating the body’s own collagen production
  • Plumps tissues and restores volume
  • Improves skin texture
  • Results appear gradually and last over two years
  • Between 1 and 3 treatments may be needed  

What types of fillers do you offer?

Radiesse – Radiesse is made with tiny calcium hydroxyapatite spheres suspended in gel. Once injected, Radiesse helps the body to regenerate collagen reserves, smoothing the skin and providing a stronger, more stable scaffolding for the complexion. 

Sculptra – Formulated with biocompatible poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra is often used as a component of a non-surgical facelift or rhinoplasty. It is FDA-approved to address the signs of facial aging, such as volume loss, wrinkles, and folds.

Juvederm – Juvederm is engineered with naturally occurring hyaluronic acid that helps to smooth aging skin and plump depleted facial contours. Juvederm products can be used to add volume to deflated lips, correct nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and give the cheeks a natural lift.

Restylane – Like Juvederm, Restylane products are made with HA. Restylane can be used to improve definition in the lips, reverse the downturned corners of the mouth, combat dark under-eye circles, and can achieve many other important cosmetic goals.

Kybella – Kybella, made with deoxycholic acid, is able to painlessly reduce the stubborn fat that accumulates beneath the chin, slimming your profile and boosting your self-confidence. Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable for sculpting the upper neck and is clinically proven to reduce fat cells. 

What can I expect with my dermal fillers treatment?

Because dermal fillers are cosmetic injections, your face may be numbed before treatment with a topical agent. Some of the products also include lidocaine to help with any discomfort. After your face is cleansed (and perhaps numbed), the injections will be administered over the course of several minutes. 

Most patients find this process very tolerable. Downtime is very minimal, and with most dermal fillers, patients can resume work, school, and other activities immediately. Dr. Giyaur will be sure to go over any recovery time or special instructions during your consultation. Depending on the specific facial fillers used in your treatment, results can last from a few months to up to two years. This can also be discussed during your consultation.

FAQ

How do I know which facial filler is right for me?

There is a very wide variety of dermal fillers, each with their own ingredients, specialty, thickness, and dosage. Because of this, it can be difficult to choose the right one for your needs. This is exactly why Dr. Giyaur meets with you before your treatment in a consultation. This gives her (and you) the opportunity to go over everything she needs to know in order to determine the right dermal filler(s) for your unique aesthetic goals and medical history.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

Dermal fillers are priced per syringe but the number of syringes required varies from patient to patient depending on their exact concerns and goals as well as what area is to be treated. We provide a number of filler options that our aesthetic professionals will help you choose from for the most cost-efficient treatment and longest-lasting results possible. In a personal consultation done before your dermal fillers treatment, we can provide you an exact cost for your procedure.

How soon will I see results after my dermal fillers treatment?

You can expect to see most of your results immediately after treatment, and your final results to appear within 24 to 48 hours after most fillers. The exact “settling time” varies from filler to filler, but unlike neuromodulators (which require some time to do their work), dermal fillers are considered instant and noticeable results are seen immediately after injection.

How long does it take to get dermal fillers?

Most dermal filler treatments can be completed in 15-25 minutes, with the longest of procedures usually taking no more than an hour.
