Dermal Fillers Procedure in Oakdale, NY
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections used to restore facial harmony by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions and superficial lines, enhancing certain features and replacing soft-tissue volume loss. They are used in conjunction with neuromodulators like Botox to contour the jawline/lower face, correct volume loss in the midface/cheek areas and treat depressions caused by scars and wrinkles. Facial fillers may also be used to help balance out asymmetry and deformities caused by medical conditions such as Bells Palsy.
Dermal Fillers FAQ
Which Dermal Filler Is Right For Me?
The dermal fillers we use are not permanent, but do stimulate collagen over time, thereby changing your aging path starting with your first treatment. Various types of fillers are available; each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction or lip augmentation. The professionals at Kasten Aesthetics can help you determine which type of injections and what injectable filler treatments are right for you. Many of the natural fillers we use are composed of Hyaluronic ac, a substance that is naturally produced in our bodies. Some of the hyaluronic acid fillers we use include: Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma and Belotero. Radiesse, a type of filler made of calcium hydroxyapatite is generally used for more severe volume correction and lifting needs. Radiesse is a longer-lasting filler because the body forms collagen around the microspheres, adding bulk to the injected areas.
