Fillers and Injectables
Dermal filler treatments at Hazen Plastic Surgery are FDA-approved anti-aging solutions that can replace lost facial volume while simultaneously reducing fine lines and wrinkles. With dermal fillers in Princeton, patients can achieve desired anti-aging results without surgery or downtime, and continue to see optimal results when used in a series of treatments. The knowledgeable staff at Hazen Plastic Surgery will guide patients on which option is best to suit their individual needs.
Wrinkles are caused by muscle activity around the eyes, nose, and mouth. In addition to these overactive muscles, the production of collagen in the skin begins to slow down as we age. With less collagen to keep the skin tight and smooth, we can see more wrinkles or a loss in facial volume, leading to a thinned or frail appearance. Dermal fillers reverse these unwanted signs of aging by replenishing lost facial volume with hyaluronic acid to restore a smooth and even facial contour. Dermal fillers are safe and effective for use around the nose, mouth, cheeks, and lips, and require no downtime following treatment.

Juvéderm is an FDA-approved dermal filler that increases facial volume within the cheeks and treats wrinkles around the lips, nose, and mouth. With Juvéderm, patients can reduce smile lines and smoker’s lines for a more youthful facial appearance. Some patients may be able to achieve lip augmentation with Juvéderm treatments as well.
Voluma treatments at Hazen Plastic Surgery can restore volume to the cheeks for a natural-looking fullness that resists signs of aging. Results last up to two years and require no downtime.
Restylane injections use hyaluronic acid—a substance found naturally in the body—to add plumpness and fullness to the lips while filling in lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Additionally, Restylane can treat laugh lines, marionette lines, and smoker’s lines.
Restylane Lyft utilizes hyaluronic acid to fill in lines and wrinkles deep within the skin for dramatic results. Restylane Lyft is FDA-approved to treat lines around the nose and mouth with no downtime.
Restylane Silk is FDA-approved to augment the lips for a fuller shape. Restylane Silk uses hyaluronic acid to provide fullness without downtime.
Restylane Refyne is a hyaluronic acid-based filler designed to minimize visible nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It is formulated with special XpresHAn technology, which softens the creases and lines while preserving natural facial expressions.
Restylane Defyne is similar to Refyne; it is intended for lines around the corners of the nose, mouth and chin. Like Refyne, Defyne contains XpresHAn technology which prevents it from impeding natural facial expressions. The principal difference between the two fillers is that Defyne is slightly firmer. The thickness of the gel makes it a good option for deeper facial folds and lines.
Sculptra treatments at Hazen Plastic Surgery provide long-lasting results by increasing the levels of collagen in the skin. With Sculptra, patients can reduce deep facial wrinkles and improve overall volume with no downtime. Sculptra provides optimal results with a series of treatments.
Belotero Balance in Princeton is FDA-approved to reduce fine lines around the nose and mouth, known as smile lines or smoker’s lines. Belotero Balance requires no downtime for patients, and results last for up to six months.
For some patients, dermal fillers may not suffice for achieving desired results. To increase facial volume and deliver long-lasting results, Hazen Plastic Surgery offers fat transfer treatments. During a fat transfer excess fat is removed from another area of the body, like the abdomen or thighs, then it is refined and injected into the face to provide a natural augmentation. Fat transfers require minimal downtime and results are long-lasting for patients in Princeton.
Allofill is a naturally occurring allograft fat tissue used as an alternative to traditional fat grafting. Instead of having your own fat harvested from another area of your body, which can be expensive, time-consuming and uncomfortable, we can use Allofill to fill in areas that need natural-looking volume and support. When injected under the skin Allofill helps to reverse the effects of fat loss. It acts as a natural scaffold that is gradually filled with your own cells and blood vessels.
