About the treatment and how Dermal Fillers Work

Unlike BOTOX Cosmetic injections, dermal filler treatments can take 30 to 45 minutes.  Swelling in the treatment area(s) may occur, but will dissipate in 24 to 72 hours.  Most clients return to their normal daily activities post-treatment.  The fillers are naturally metabolized by the body and additional injections will be required to maintain the volume in the skin under the wrinkles or increase the volume of the lips.  Dermal fillers are, however, long lasting – typically lasting six to twelve months!   LaserMEDICA™  uses Juvederm™  Ultra and Juvederm™ Ultra Plus for Hyaluronic acid dermal filler corrections .  Your skin is made of two layers, with supporting columns holding them apart. The area in-between includes the clear-jelly like substance Hyaluronic Acid. While young, the Hyaluronic acid is in abundance. As you grow older, the acid between these layers diminishes, and the skin somewhat caves, causing a wrinkle along the line. The wrinkle would be gone if you filled that area back up with the Hyaluronic Acid jelly-like substance. That’s where Dermal fillers come in.

The fillers are injected into the skin with a very thin needle. It is injected into the area, and restores the natural volumes underneath the wrinkle. The wrinkle is now lifted up and smoothed out. All of this takes about 30 to 45 minutes, leaves no marks or scars, and the results can be seen immediately.   Time between injections is typically 6 to 12 months.

Facial lines and features that can be corrected using these hyaluronic acid fillers are:

  • Smoker’s lines which are vertical lines on the mouth (perioral lines)
  • Marionette lines at the corner of the mouth (oral commisures)
  • Deep smile lines that run from side of the nose to corners of the mouth  (nasolabial furrows)
  • Cheek depressions
  • Redefining lip border
  • Acne scars
  • Some facial scars

Juvederm Voluma™ XC

We are Very excited to add Allergan’s JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™XC to our list of dermal fillers.

On October 23, 2013, the FDA approved the first and only filler made to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC.  VOLUMA™ XC injectable offers a more youthful appearance that will last up to two years! A few things that make JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC different than other fillers include:

  • JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC adds volume using Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume.
  • JUVÉDERM® XC (not VOLUMA) is a Hyaluronic Acid that softens moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, on the other hand, adds volume to the cheek area.
  • Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (usually no more than 7 days). Some of the most common side effects include temporary injection-site reactions such as: discoloration, itching, firmness, lumps/bumps, pain/tenderness, and swelling/bruising.

According to the 2013 American Society for Dermatological Surgery (ASDS) Consumer Survey, one of the top reasons people choose to undergo a cosmetic procedure is because they want to look as young as they feel, and sagging facial skin was a top concern. Individuals also voiced concern about lost volume and sagging skin on their face, but not so significant that it requires surgery. The great news is that now there’s a solution to address this concern. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler and non-surgical treatment that requires little to no downtime. It creates a more youthful appearance in patients 21 years of age and older. The gel is injected into the cheek area (with fine needles) to gently lift the skin and temporarily correct age-related volume loss.

If you think that you might be a candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC please contact us at 201-672-2820 to schedule a consultation.


Radiesse® Wrinkle Filler is a dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth wrinkles and folds that are moderate to severe.   The most common wrinkles and folds in both women and men are the nasolabial folds (these are the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth).  The other most common use of Radiesse® is for Cheek Augmentation and Marionette lines.

Radiesse® is made from Calcium Hydroxylapatite , a tiny calcium microsphere that is made of similar components to those found in your body naturally.  The dermal filler is injected under the skin with a fine needle and immediately adds volume to the areas of concern thereby instantly reducing the signs of creases and unwanted wrinkles.

The benefits of Radiesse® continue over time as it stimulates the production of your body’s own natural collagen in the injected area, thereby providing the volumizing effects to last to up to a year in many patients.  This has been an ever-growing treatment among men as well as women.

Most common areas:

  • Nasolabial folds (creases from nose to corners of mouth)
  • Chin Augmentation
  • Oral Commissure (corners of the mouth)
  • Jawline (pre-jowl area)
  • Cheek Augmentation

Radiesse® Hands

RADIESSE® is the first and only FDA-approved product for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the hands. RADIESSE restores volume to the hands while providing smooth, natural-looking results1 that can be seen immediately and can last up to 1 year.
