Even though volume loss, skin depressions, folds, and fine lines naturally develop as you age, you don’t have to accept them. Dermal fillers allow you to reduce the signs of aging without surgery. At South Jersey Aesthetics in Gibbsboro and Cape May Court House, NJ, we offer several types of dermal fillers and can help you choose the filler you need to get the results you desire.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a favored anti-aging solution for individuals looking for significant results without committing to the expense and downtime required for procedures such as brow, eye, or face lifts. The facial fillers used by South Jersey Aesthetics are made from various FDA-approved ingredients and are a gel-like substance injected beneath the skin. Fillers can be used to fill wrinkles and folds, enhance specific areas of your face, and restore lost volume.
There are many types of fillers composed of various ingredients, and some of the most popular are hyaluronic acid-based formulas. Calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) fillers are also a common choice for patients looking for a long-lasting filler that stimulates their body’s natural collagen production.
Many people are unaware of the versatility of dermal fillers. Although fillers are touted as an excellent option for filling wrinkles, there are numerous benefits to this cosmetic treatment beyond wrinkle removal.
- Restore volume to cheeks and temples
- Enhance lips
- Eliminate vertical lip lines
- Soften a chin crease
- Improve facial symmetry
- Increase collagen production
- Minimize the appearance of scars
- Long-lasting results
- Minimally invasive
SOUTH JERSEY AESTHETICS: FILLER OPTIONS
We offer numerous dermal fillers, ensuring a perfect filler for every patient’s needs. Keep reading for a brief rundown of our treatment options, but don’t worry if you aren’t sure which treatment is perfect for you; one of our healthcare professionals will help you find the best choice for your needs.
The main ingredient in the JUVÉDERM® collection of facial fillers is a modified form of hyaluronic acid. The popular JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC formula addresses volume loss in the cheeks and gives you an instant cheek lift as it fills fine lines and dynamic wrinkles. All fillers in the JUVÉDERM® collection are FDA-approved and have been put through rigorous clinical tests.
Results can last as long as one to two years, depending on which formula of JUVÉDERM® is used and the area being treated. At South Jersey Aesthetics, your hyaluronic acid-based filler can be administered in many places via a microcannula, which causes minimal tissue damage and helps prevent swelling and redness.
The Restylane® Collection
Restylane® offers an assortment of FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based fillers designed to address nearly every facial symptom of aging. Restylane® Kysse is their filler crafted specifically for creating fuller lips without sacrificing movement. Patients looking to improve the structure of their cheeks will want to look into Restylane® Lyft or Contour, depending on their desired outcome. Fine lines around the mouth can be minimized with Restylane® Refyne.
If defining your chin or softening severe laugh lines are on your aesthetic wishlist, Restylane® Defyne is a filler you’ll want to learn more about. Finally, the original Restylane® filler has been a favorite for treating fine facial lines for over 26 years, proving you can never go wrong with a classic.
The RHA® Collection
The RHA® Collection consists of hyaluronic acid fillers that are manufactured to mirror the natural hyaluronic acid your body creates. This collection is FDA-approved and offers four formulations created to fix dynamic wrinkles and creases.
RHA Redensity™ is designed to fill fine lipstick lines, and RHA® 2 and RHA® 3 smoothes wrinkles and folds naturally, allowing your face to maintain its softness. RHA® 4 adds volume to fill deep dynamic folds and wrinkles.
This CaHA filler temporarily adds volume to deep wrinkles and folds in the lower portion of your face and stimulates collagen production. RADIESSE® is the only CaHA filler approved by the FDA to remedy volume loss in hands. As you age, the backs of your hand lose their volume, causing loose skin and prominent veins. A filler can restore youthful fullness to your hands.
The average patient’s results will last up to a year, and the positive effects of the treatment will be visible immediately following the injection. Receiving RADIESSE® injections is a quick process, and any side effects are typically minor.
This multi-use filler is FDA-approved and hyaluronic acid-based. Manufactured using advanced techniques, Revanesse® Versa™+ is prehydrated, allowing it to be effortlessly accepted by your body. This formula minimizes swelling after injection, and the components break down slowly over time, increasing the filler’s longevity.
Moderate to severe wrinkles and creases can be treated, and the hyaluronic acid in this filler will add a natural fullness to your face. Laugh lines and other wrinkles can be improved for up to 12 months. Revanesse® Versa™+ provides the patient with immediate results, and optimal results will be revealed within three to four weeks following injection.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP dermal fillers are made by taking a small amount of blood from the patient, then centrifuging and filtering it. The result is plasma with a high concentration of growth factors, cytokines, and platelets that encourage your body to increase collagen and soft tissue production. This all-natural treatment stimulates your body to repair itself and has long-lasting effects.
PRP can be administered to the patient with or without a hyaluronic acid filler. Patients with allergies and sensitivities have a reduced risk of irritation or adverse effects with this type of filler, and it is an organic alternative to other manufactured products. PRP filler can be used to treat facial wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage. It can also improve your skin’s overall appearance on your hands, neck, face, and chest.
PDO Thread Lift With PRP Filler
Patients with aging skin that has begun to drop and sag may find that combining PRP filler with a PDO thread lift offers them the best results. South Jersey Aesthetics uses absorbable PDO threads that can stimulate collagen production, lift your face, and restore volume to depressions.
When paired with PRP filler, your medical professional will add PRP as they insert the threads and may inject PRP in other areas to improve minor lines and wrinkles. Combining these treatments can lead to better results for patients, and the effects typically last for 18 to 24 months as the PRP injections and PDO threads stimulate collagen production.
LET DERMAL FILLERS TRANSFORM YOUR FACE
While only you can decide when the time is right for you to get fillers, most patients wish they’d begun at the first signs of aging. You can maintain your skin’s volume and suppleness by stimulating collagen production and increasing hyaluronic acid production as you age. The sooner you begin treatment, the sooner you’ll feel confident in your skin.
At South Jersey Aesthetics, we use a wide range of injectable dermal facial fillers to achieve the best possible result based on the clients’ needs. We offer Hyaluronic Acid filler treatment (i.e., Versa, Restylane, Juvederm), Calcium Hydroxyapatite acid filler treatments (Radiesse), and poly-L-lactic acid filler treatments (Sculptra). The most popular and versatile for all areas of the face are the Hyaluronic Acid facial fillers for your face and smile lines. These fillers typically last for 12-18 months in the face and 6-9 months in the lips. Dr. Francis prefers to use Versa unless the patient requests another filler.

Finding the treatment option that works best for your skin and your body is made easier with an experienced doctor by your side every step of the way.
