Fillers are the ideal, non-surgical method to achieve wrinkle alleviation and improved facial contours. Many general statements are made about fillers but to understand them better you should consider them in two categories: deep and dermal. Dermal fillers can instantly reduce wrinkles where as deep fillers restore facial contours, lost volume and softly lift facial features.

Dermal Fillers include Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane® and Belotero®. Dermal fillers are the best treatment option for patients who wish to minimize the appearance of an individual wrinkle.

Deep Fillers include Radiesse® and Sculptra®. Deep fillers are the antidote for the lost facial volume and facial droopiness that occurs with age.

Each filler in has it’s own unique attributes that work in it’s own way. Choosing the right filler for optimal results is just one of the reasons why patients trust experienced, board certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Julia Sabetta to create a treatment plan that will give them their desired outcomes.

Fillers are ideal for contouring, volumizing and smoothing:

  • Wrinkles, lines, and furrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Brow droops
  • Smile/laugh lines known as Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Sagging cheeks
  • Granny hands
  • Thinning lips
  • Lipstick lines
  • Dark under eye circles

As we age, we lose volume and fullness in our skin and underlying tissues. The results are folds, wrinkles and sagging in our skin. Fillers, as their name would suggest, fill areas in which we have lost volume to counteract the aging process, reduce or eliminate wrinkles and replace soft-tissue loss, resulting in the revolumizing and rejuvenation of your face.

Understanding More About Fillers

Dermal Fillers
Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane® and Belotero® are dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide skin fullness and resiliency. Hyaluronic acid fillers restore and support and also attract water to the treated area. Together these actions culminate in wrinkle improvement for up to six months.

Juvederm®, Restylane® & Perlane® are standard treatments for medium depth marionette lines, smile lines, dark under eye circles and depressed scars. Belotero® is especially useful for those pesky fine lines like crow’s feet and lipstick lines.

Deep Fillers
Deep fillers are used differently than dermal fillers in most instances. Deep fillers are the antidote for the lost facial volume and facial droopiness that occurs with age. Deep fillers replace the lost volume and help to lift for a more youthful look. By replacing the lost volume deep fillers can be your personal anti-gravity solution.

Radiesse® is a calcium-based filler that provides patients with immediately noticeable results. Radiesse® is versatile; for example, it can be used as a deep dermal filler for severe smile and marionette lines, or as a deep filler to re-create diminished cheekbones.

Sculptra® is a biostimulatory deep filler that stimulates the skin’s production of its own collagen, to add long lasting volume over time. Unlike the other fillers that provide more instant results, Sculptra® results build over time.

Sculptra® is a biostimulatory deep filler and it is the treatment of choice for patients who require pan-facial re-volumizing because of sunken facial appearance.

Sculptra® stimulates the body’s gradual production of collagen to create volume. For this reason Sculptra® is performed in several treatment sessions in order for Dr. Sabetta to monitor that you are developing the natural look you desire. Sculptra® requires, on the part of the injector, a thorough understanding of the three dimensional aesthetics of the face.

Deep fillers are excellent for treating severe nasolabial folds, brow droops, dramatic sunken cheeks, and “Granny hands,” but cannot be used on the lips.
