About Dermal Fillers
Sagging skin, hollow cheeks, facial lines, and wrinkles are common signs of aging caused by the gradual loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid from your skin. Dermal fillers in New Jersey, also known as facial fillers, restore your skin’s depleting collagen and hyaluronic acid reserves to reverse the signs of aging.
What are they?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that enhance your facial features and reverse the signs of aging. They consist of various cosmetic injectables that restore your skin’s naturally depleting reserves of collagen and hyaluronic acid. In some cases, they can also enhance your genetically inherited traits, allowing you to augment your cheeks, jawline, or lips.
Until recently, the benefits offered by dermal fillers could only be achieved through complex surgeries that entailed a high risk of complications and downtime. Facial fillers provide similar benefits, such as smooth and taut skin with restored facial volume but with subtler and more relaxed results. The results usually appear immediately and last several months.
Dermal Fillers at Work
Who is it for?
Dermal fillers are suitable for anyone feeling self-conscious because of facial wrinkles, furrows, grooves, loss of facial volume, sagging skin, or thin lips. Whether you want to reverse the signs of aging or elevate your natural facial features (such as a small chin or thin lips), dermal fillers can help you achieve the desired results.
How do they work?
Dermal fillers come in various forms with different active ingredients, but the most effective dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring and biocompatible component that increases your skin’s moisture retention capacity. It helps your skin hold moisture, making it look dewy, voluminous, and firm.
As we grow older, our skin’s hyaluronic acid reserves are gradually depleted, leading to sagging skin, facial hollows, and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers restore your skin’s dwindling HA reserves, thus reversing the signs of aging. They can also make your cheeks and lips appear full, voluminous, and luscious.
We also provide collagen induction fillers, such as Sculptra and Radiesse. These fillers are made of ingredients that activate your body’s collagen production capabilities. Your body responds to these fillers by producing new collagen fibers that naturally enhance your facial volume and reverse the signs of aging.
The benefits of dermal fillers include:
- Non-surgical treatment for dynamic wrinkles
- Quick in-and-out treatment
- Cost-effective treatment
- Works quickly
- Reverses the signs of aging

Dermal fillers are simple cosmetic injectables that cause no pain or discomfort. Your cosmetic provider will inject the chosen dermal filler into the targeted facial tissues to produce the desired results.

You might experience minor redness and irritation, but you can resume your daily activities immediately. The results usually appear immediately, but their longevity depends on the formulation used and your body’s natural metabolic rate.
