dermal fillers

Dermal fillers have become the solution for millions of people looking for non-surgical skin treatments for areas of concern. Aesthetic Artistry’s NYC medical spas offer a full line of Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers to fill out the skin. Though not permanent, results last several months to a year using injections of Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in skin that helps promote elasticity. High concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid are found in soft connective tissues, in the fluid surrounding the eyes, in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as in skin tissue.

Hyaluronic Acid injectable fillers are a safe, effective way to enhance your skin’s radiance. Also known as soft tissue fillers or wrinkle fillers, dermal fillers are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to improve the contour of the skin.

Dermal fillers can be used to fill depressions in skin due to scarring or wrinkles, but are not limited to just these problemed areas. Lip injections, aka lip fillers, are becoming extremely popular to attain full, beautiful lips. Under eye fillers are also a popular choice to reduce the appearance of puffy, loose skin under the eyes. Cheek fillers work to plump the cheeks, resulting in a radiant, youthful look. Hands can even benefit from dermal fillers as the skin of the hands often can become weathered over time.

At Aesthetic Artistry, we also specialize in vaginal rejuvenation using dermal fillers as well as male enhancement to enlarge the penis. We offer consultations at our NYC-based medical spas to determine the best treatment for you to attain the results you want.

How do Dermal Fillers work?

Before the treatment, you will have a complete consultation with one of our experienced NYC-based professionals to determine the most effective dermal filler for you. After a mild anesthetic is massaged onto the skin, injections of the chosen dermal fillers are inserted by a doctor or nurse through a tiny needle into the targeted areas of skin while you relax comfortably.

The exact amount of Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler used depends on the depth of the wrinkle, severity of the sagging area and your skin type. After the Hyaluronic Acid injection, skin is gently massaged to smooth the Hyaluronic Acid Fillers. This ensures the most natural-looking results. The entire process takes about 20 - 40 minutes and the results are immediate.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-based treatments that are injected into the skin using tiny needles. At Aesthetic Artistry, a medical doctor or nurse administers Hyaluronic Acid injections, which we consider the best wrinkle filler on the market because Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance already present in the body. Specifically designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin and scarring, dermal fillers boost skin, adding volume and smoothing the area instantly.

Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers have become the mainstay of biocompatible products. Smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines, plumping lips and cheeks, and working to correct a multitude of problem areas, dermal fillers yield dramatic results, such as:

  1. Create full, accentuated lips.
  2. Add lift to cheeks.
  3. Increase volume of cheeks.
  4. Fill nasolabial folds (aka smile lines).
  5. Soften smile lines.
  6. Enhance jaw region.
  7. Reduce the appearance of under eye sagging.
  8. Smooth the skin of the hands.
  9. Rejuvenate the vaginal area.
  10. Male enhancement.

    Most results last four months to a year. Unlike Botox injections, which relax the muscle under a wrinkle, dermal fillers fill in the wrinkle with a substance already present in the body. Each dermal filler is unique in its own way, but all dermal fillers work to plump and gently lift skin while restoring collagen loss due to the normal aging process. 

Dermal fillers can be used to treat the following:

  • Forehead lines
  • Lines between the eyebrows
  • Smile Lines, aka nasolabial fold - run from the corners of the mouth to the nose
  • Crow’s Feet - lines around the eyes
  • Thin lips (lip augmentation)
  • Wrinkles above the top lip
  • Sagging cheeks (cheek fillers)
  • Marionette lines - run vertically down the chin from the edges of the mouth
  • Acne scars
  • Cheek depressions
  • Redefining lip border
  • Smoker's lines - vertical lines on the mouth
  • Under eye sagging or “bags”
  • Hands
  • Vaginal Rejuvenation
  • Male Enhancement (enlarging the penis)

Types of Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers:

There are several different types of dermal fillers available today and our NYC-based aestheticians offer a consultation to determine the right choice for you, depending on your skin type, the location of the area that you are looking to rejuvenate and/or the depth of the wrinkle/scar to be filled.

The difference in Hyaluronic Acid injections is the size of their particles. For instance, areas needing larger volume, like the cheeks, need a larger sized particle such as Juvederm Voluma XC or Restylane Lyft. For areas where less volume is needed, like the lips, a smaller particle product such as Restylane Silk or Juvederm Volbella XC would be used.

Aesthetic Artistry’s NYC-based medical spas carry a full line of brand named Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers including:

  • Belotero Balance
  • Juvederm Voluma XC
  • Juvederm XC
  • Juvederm Ultra XC
  • Juvederm Volbella XC
  • HylaForm
  • Prevelle Silk
  • Restylane
  • Restylane-L
  • Restylane-Lift
  • Restylane Silk
  • Restylane Refyne
  • Restylane Defyne

a Word on Botox

Botox is a substance injected into muscle that prevents the muscle from contracting and causes wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most effective on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. During your initial consultation, we will decide a detailed plan of treatment so you can attain the look you want. Aesthetic Artistry works in conjunction with several NYC-based dermatologists and plastic surgeons at the top of their field. We consult with you to determine the best treatment plan for you, which may include referring you to one of our medical associates to administer Botox injections, if desired.
