Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can improve signs of aging in subtle, natural-looking ways. For more dramatic results, Dr. Kam can adjust dosage and placement to help each patient achieve the look they desire. Cosmetic fillers offer a long list of benefits, including:

  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Accentuate features and improve facial contour
  • Reduce wrinkles
  • Improve depressed scars
  • Plump lips
  • Reduce the appearance of lip lines or a cleft chin
  • Target individual wrinkles
  • Raise the cheeks
  • Augment a small chin, and improve the jawline
  • Hydrate and soften skin

Three Key Benefits to Injectable Filler in Voorhees, NJ

  1. Lunch Break Treatment: Dermal filler provides immediate results with no downtime. Many patients come on their lunch break and return to work.
  1. Stimulate Collagen: Some dermal fillers can stimulate the production of collagen, which encourages tighter, smoother, and more youthful skin. Dr. Kam Matches the dermal filler to the patient’s goals. 
  1. Long Lasting 6-12+ Months: Juvederm and Restylane (hyaluronic acid fillers) typically last between 6 to 12 months. Radiesse, a calcium hydroxylapatite (CAHA) injectable, lasts 12 months or longer to minimize deep wrinkles and lines while stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. Each option is an FDA-approved injectable that improves specific concerns and enhances certain facial features.

Facial volume plays a vital role in healthy, youthful skin. With age, the skin begins to lose volume, which causes it to sag. Lines appear, the cheeks hollow, tear troughs appear sunken, and lips start to thin. Dermal fillers replace lost fat and provide long-lasting, volumizing results with minimal downtime.

What is a Cosmetic Filler?

Cosmetic filler, also called dermal filler, is an injectable treatment appropriate for most skin types and many signs of aging. Dr. Kam uses several safe, FDA-approved dermal fillers, including Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra to efface folds and wrinkles, improve facial contours and fill hollows. She bases her selection on the patient’s skin texture, the area being filled and the patient’s desired appearance.

Dr. Kam has a natural sense for the youthful aesthetic and utilizes techniques that provide outstanding, natural-looking results.

Types of Cosmetic Filler

  • Hyaluronic Acid (Juvederm and Restylane products): The skin’s natural connective tissue is composed of hyaluronic acid.
  • Poly-L-lactic Acid (Sculptra): Originally designed to address severe facial wasting.
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse): The inorganic component of bone. Treats deep skin folds and wrinkles.
  • Fat: A patient’s natural fat is harvested from the body using liposuction. The harvested fat is cleaned and injected into areas that need more volume. 

Other Injectables Offered at Kam Facial Plastic surgery

  • Deoxycholic Acid (Kybella) is a natural digestive aid injected under the chin to dissolve fat.
  • Botulinum toxin (Botox): Temporarily reduces the “11” lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, forehead creases, and neck bands.

The recovery time after cosmetic filler varies depending on the filler and the treated area. Patients who are having maintenance injections may have less bruising and swelling. Most patients can resume routine activity immediately but should avoid intense physical activity for 24 hours to reduce the risk of swelling and bruising. Contact Dr. Kam or the Kam Facial Plastic surgery staff with dermal filler questions or concerns.

Dermal Filler Cost

Dermal filler is custom designed to match the patient’s goals, and the price varies depending on the type of filler, the number of syringes needed, and the area treated.

While it provides longer-lasting, significant results, it is not considered necessary and, as such, is not covered by medical insurance. Kam Facial Plastic surgery Offers payment options through Care Credit or My Medical Funding.

Common Cosmetic Filler Questions

Am I a candidate for cosmetic injections in Voorhees, NJ?

If you want to reduce the appearance of folds around your mouth or hollows under your eyes, lift your cheeks, or plump your lips, you may be a candidate for dermal injections. Dermal filler reverses the effects of volume loss by restoring precise volume in specific areas.

There are different dermal fillers, and Dr. Kam will review your medical history and examine your skin to determine which dermal filler is best for you. Kam Facial Plastic surgery also offers other non-surgical treatments to improve the appearance of your skin, including Botox, laser skin resurfacing, and suggestions for topical therapy.

How do I know which filler is best?

Dr. Kam will explain the different products that she offers during the consultation. She offers a variety of products that are suited to different facial areas. For example, a more hydrophilic filler, one that draws in a lot of water from the surrounding tissues to create a “plump” appearance, may be desirable in the lips, but not suitable for the under eyes, where it could cause excess “eye bags”. Her expert experience will help you make an educated decision.

What are the benefits and possible risks associated with dermal filler?

The FDA has approved injectable dermal fillers for specific uses in adults age 21 or older. Dr. Kam explains the benefits and risks during the consultation. 
 
The benefits of dermal filler may include:
– Filling moderate to severe skin folds and wrinkles.
– Increasing the volume under the eyes.
– Adding volume to the lips, cheeks, chin, jawline, and back of the hands.
 
There are risks with any medical procedure. Most side effects reported during clinical trials occurred immediately after injection and went away within a few weeks. Rarer side effects may emerge later. Dermal filler risks include localized pain, bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness, a rash, and itching. One serious complication could arise from unintended injection into blood vessels, which could cause damage to the facial skin.
 
Having filler with an experienced surgeon like Dr. Kam dramatically reduces the risks associated with dermal filler.

How long will my dermal filler results last?

The longevity of the result depends on the filler used and the area treated. Some cosmetic fillers last between 6 to 12 months, and others can last years. With touch-ups and maintenance treatments, many patients experience longer-lasting benefits from their dermal filler.
Dr. Kam will review the timeline for popular brands of dermal filler during consultation.
