Dermal Fillers in Princeton, New Jersey

Dermal fillers (facial fillers) are injectable anti-aging treatments that have the ability to rejuvenate your facial appearance. They are very popular in the Princeton, NJ area for safely and effectively increasing facial volume, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and plumping up areas of lost volume in a quick, convenient, non-surgical way, with minimal downtime.

How do facial fillers work?

Dermal fillers work by adding natural hyaluronic acid to the face, cheeks, or lips. This causes an increase in volume and fullness while also reducing wrinkles and other signs of aging on the face. As we get older, the collagen in our skin begins to deplete, leading to a hollow or thinned facial appearance. With facial fillers, this lost collagen is augmented by natural hyaluronic acid for revolutionary skin rejuvenation results. 

What dermal fillers can do

Dermal fillers can address nearly any facial concern, filling the dermis from under the skin to create a radiant, youthful plumpness. Dermal fillers are FDA-approved to:

  • Correct age-related loss of volume
  • Fill in lines and wrinkles
  • Improve sagging skin in the cheek area
  • Add plumpness and fullness to the lips  
  • Treat laugh lines, marionette lines, and smoker’s lines
  • Correct folds and creases around the nose, mouth, and chin
  • Restore volume on the backs of the hands
  • Increase collagen in the skin
  • Improve sunken cheeks and temples

Dermal fillers offered at Hazen Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa

Juvéderm

Juvéderm® products are FDA-approved to improve facial volume, especially within the cheeks. Juvéderm fills in lines and wrinkles around the lips, nose, and mouth (known as smile lines, marionette lines, and smoker’s lines) for a younger appearance. Juvéderm can also plump lips for a more voluptuous look.

Juvéderm Voluma

Juvéderm Voluma is specifically intended to correct age-related loss of volume and skin sagging in the cheek area. When injected into the cheeks, Voluma lifts and contours the area. The results can last up to two years.

Sculptra

Sculptra® is a unique dermal filler that provides extended results over an 18- to 24-month period. Sculptra is best used over multiple sessions to increase collagen in the skin and fill in deep facial wrinkles, as well as sunken cheeks and temples.

Radiesse

As a volumizing dermal filler, Radiesse® plumps the skin from underneath, stimulating the body’s own natural collagen production process to improve loose facial skin and lessen the appearance of wrinkles.

Revanesse Versa

Revanesse® Versa™ is intended to lessen swelling and maintain equilibrium with the water content of the surrounding skin tissue. Because Revanesse Versa neither increases nor diminishes the water in the skin, natural-looking results in the treatment area are ensured. The raw materials in Versa have been analyzed with rigorous standards in small groups, under very stringent rules and regulations at their North America manufacturing facility. Versa is free of animal products and is compatible with the human body. It biodegrades gradually and organically over many months. Dr. Hazen will be able to evaluate whether you meet the criteria for having this treatment.

Restylane

Restylane® injections use hyaluronic acid — a substance 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 Refyne

Refyne is a Restylane product designed specifically for folds and creases around the nose, mouth, and chin. When injected into the skin, this hyaluronic acid-based filler minimizes the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. The filler almost immediately plumps and smooths the skin, drawing moisture to the area and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Refyne is specially formulated to help maintain natural facial expression like smiling, frowning, and puckering the lips. The proprietary XpresHAn Technology™ makes the filler very flexible, so it’s able to produce smooth results that do not impede natural facial expressions.

Restylane Defyne

Like Refyne, Defyne is a hyaluronic acid-based Restylane product intended to smooth out nasolabial folds and marionette lines. However, Defyne has a slightly firmer and less flexible formulation and is designed for the correction of deeper, more severe lines and creases. It’s an excellent option for facial folds and wrinkles that are too deep to be effectively treated by Refyne or other fillers. Once injected into the desired area, Defyne can be molded as needed to achieve the desired results. Despite its thicker consistency, Defyne still allows for visible results without sacrificing natural-looking facial expressions such as smiling and frowning.

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is another hyaluronic acid-based filler intended to correct volume loss and wrinkles in specific areas of the face and hands. It’s commonly used to add volume to the cheeks and mid-face area, as well as the back of the hands. Results can last from six to 12 months, depending on the area treated.

Fat injections

For patients who have experienced significant loss of facial volume, dermal fillers may not provide the desired results. Instead, all-natural fat injections can provide long-lasting and dramatic facial rejuvenation. With fat injections, excess fat from the abdomen or thighs is repurposed and injected to add volume to the face, without any additives and only minimal downtime.

Finding the right dermal filler

There is such a wide variety of facial fillers that it can be easy to become overwhelmed when figuring out which one is right for you. 

This is why Dr. Jill Hazen meets with her New Jersey patients before treatment. During your consultation, she will go over your specific trouble spots and your personal aesthetic goals to determine which dermal filler best matches your needs and medical specifications. 

Treatment details

Before your treatment begins, your face will be cleansed and prepped, and a topical anesthesia may be administered. Your injections will be administered carefully, gently, and skillfully using a very fine needle. Treatment time usually takes approximately 15 minutes.

Recovery

Dermal fillers are a “no downtime” treatment, making them one of the most convenient rejuvenation treatments in the Princeton, NJ area. You may resume regular activities immediately afterward. Side effects with dermal fillers are mild, if they occur at all. Some patients experience mild bruising, redness, itching, and/or swelling at the injection sites, but these side effects will subside within hours to a couple of days.
