Facial Fillers

Dermal fillers, also known as ‘facial fillers’ are used to help ease this aging process and sustain one’s youth. Dermal fillers provide temporary to long-lasting solutions administered through a few tiny injections on specific areas of the face. Injectable fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, or improve the appearance of recessed scars.

Various types of facial fillers are available in the United States. Your doctor at the Lombardi Plastic Surgery Center in NJwill work with you to determine which facial filler will provide you with optimal and rejuvenating results.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Restylane® / Perlane
A non-animal, biodegradable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, Restylane® is a soft tissue filler that adds volume to the skin through tiny injections; smoothing facial folds and wrinkles in areas around the mouth and eyes.

Fat
This injectable is harvested from the patient’s own body. Autologous fat transfer involves taking fat from one part of the patient’s body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, and re-injecting it beneath the facial skin.
