Dermal Fillers & Skinboosters
Skin boosting dermal fillers such as Restylane® give a quick and safe option for smoothing facial wrinkles, restoring youthful contours, and plumping thin lips. Although many different dermal fillers are available, Dr. Cory Goldberg knows how to select the right product, or combination of products, to help you achieve the results you want.
Our clinic offers many of the safest and most advanced skin boosters and dermal fillers available:
- Restylane Fine Lines
What are dermal fillers?
If you would like to freshen your appearance without surgery, dermal fillers can give you just the “lift” you need. As we age, we naturally begin to lose collagen and fat, some of which shifts downward. Injectable fillers can restore that lost volume, while creating a firmer skin surface, so wrinkles look less noticeable and our natural contours appear fuller and more youthful.
Benefits of dermal fillers
At what age do adult men and women typically begin using dermal fillers such as Restylane? Treatments begin at the first signs of aging, typically in the 30s to early 50s, though some younger patients can also benefit.
Dermal fillers might be right for you if you would like to experience any or all of the following benefits:
- Smoothed facial wrinkles around the nose and mouth
- Softened creases on the forehead or between the brows
- Restored volume in hollow areas around the eyes
- Renewed firmness on sagging areas of the face
- Augmented facial features such as cheeks, chin, or lips
Results are instantly visible. Each treatment takes less than an hour and involves no downtime.
How do dermal fillers work?
To begin each treatment session, Dr. Goldberg administers anesthesia (either topical creams or small injections) to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Next, he smoothly glides the tiny needle under the skin, precisely injecting the filler until he has achieved the desired results. You may feel mild discomfort when the product is administered, but it will quickly subside.
Following treatment, you can reduce any residual pain with a cold compress. Shortly after, you can safely apply makeup and resume your typical skincare routine, but remember not to rub the treated areas for a day or two. You may experience minor swelling or bruising, which should fade in a few days.
For optimal results, you may need up to 3 treatments. The product Dr. Goldberg will help you select, based on your individual goals and facial characteristics, will determine how long the effects will last and how often you should return to maintain results. Dermal fillers such as Restylane generally last from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the product used.
Dermal fillers: Safety & Risks
Dermal fillers have been safely used in millions of patients worldwide, and side effects are extremely rare. Dr. Goldberg will discuss potential complications during your consultation and explain how to address them if they do arise.
Dermal fillers perform well alone or when combined with Botox treatments to help you look and feel your best. During your consultation for dermal fillers or Restylane Dr. Goldberg will recommend a personalized approach to meet your aesthetic goals.
