what are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal filler injections (or simply fillers) are often injected to replenish lost facial volume. The face can lack volume for a number of reasons, but age and significant weight loss are major contributors. This treatment works by incorporating a liquid (the dermal filler) under the surface of the skin to fill in areas lacking volume or shape. Injectable dermal fillers are a promising, minimally invasive option for Plainview, NY women and men wanting to smooth sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines in order to create a younger-looking facial appearance. Dermal fillers can also be added to other aesthetic procedures to achieve the results of a traditional facelift without the need for surgery, surgical scars, and the associated downtime that follows. Many different types of fillers may help meet the requests and desires of each individual. To find out which products are recommended for you, we invite you to visit Rejuvenation Wellness Center, where Dr. Natalia Levinskaya and her experienced team can help you learn more.

How does a dermal filler treatment work?
First, the areas to be treated will be cleaned with an antiseptic then a topical local anesthetic is applied. The most commonly treated areas include nasolabial folds (the smile lines), marionette lines (by the jowls), lips, and cheeks. For cheek treatments, an injectable local anesthetic can be used to provide better pain relief as these are deeper injections and are a bit more uncomfortable. It takes around 30 minutes to complete most dermal filler treatments. Most patients will see almost immediate results.
As soon as you're done, you can resume your daily activities. Some patients may experience mild redness, bruising, and minor swelling for a few days, but serious side effects are rare. Should you experience persistent side effects and/or pain, contact Rejuvenation Wellness Center and we will be more than happy to help you.
Dermal Fillers FAQ
How much do injectable fillers cost?

How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
The injectable filler chosen on you will be based on the area being treated and your wanted outcome. Based on if you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines or are wanting to get fuller lips, your injector will understand your goals before determining the correct filler for you. Now that there are so many brands of fillers, it may be overwhelming to choose which one is ideal for your needs, which is why we work hard to make sure you experience results you are happy with.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
A wrinkle relaxer, such as BOTOX, addresses fine lines and wrinkles (mostly on the brow and in the corners of the eyes) by limiting the movement of facial muscles. Injectable fillers add volume to your face to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and depressions. Dermal fillers may also be used to add more volume to your lips and cheeks and reduce the appearance of aging on the hands.
How long will the results last?
The longevity of your results will be based on which filler is used and where it is placed. In some people, improvements may last as long as two years, while others might need a repeat treatment after about six months. Touch-up injections can be performed at our office in order to maintain your results.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Wrinkle fillers can address signs of aging in your face by either adding volume or smoothing static lines. Dermal fillers can be used on parentheses, marionette, as well as corner lines near your mouth and nose. They can also add volume to your lips and cheeks.
