Dermal Fillers

In Queens and the Bronx, our ophthalmology practice helps you see better and look better. We offer nonsurgical anti-aging treatments such as dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and create a more youthful-looking appearance. Fillers such as the JUVÉDERM® product family restore volume to the cheeks and areas around the mouth and create fuller, more sensuous lips.

Benefits of Fillers

Injectable fillers can improve facial contours and reverse signs of aging that develop as the skin loses collagen. Some of the benefits of fillers include:

  • Immediate results
  • Minimal treatment time
  • No downtime

Fillers can be used in virtually any area of the face, but are especially useful for restoring volume in flattened or sunken cheeks or lips that have thinned with age.


Injectors at our offices in the Bronx, Jamaica, and Jackson Heights use JUVÉDERM fillers. These fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that keeps skin hydrated and gives it volume. Sun exposure and the natural aging process cause hyaluronic acid to break down. Because it occurs naturally in the body, allergic reactions are extremely rare.

Different JUVÉDERM products are formulated for specific concerns. They include:

  • JUVÉDERM® Ultra: The smooth consistency is good for enhancing the lips and soft facial contours.
  • JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™: Both fillers can correct moderate to deep facial folds, such as the smile lines that run along the outer corners of the mouth. Results from Ultra Plus last about 1 year; VOLLURE lasts about 18 months.
  • JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®: This is among the longest lasting filler available and it’s used to restore volume to the cheeks (mid face area). Results can last up to 2 years.
  • JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®: Whether you have naturally thin lips, or your lips are thinning with age, VOLBELLA provides subtle, natural-looking lip augmentation and correction of lip lines for about 1 year.

Results & Recovery

One of the benefits of fillers is you’ll see the results immediately. Depending on the filler used and the area of the face that’s treated, the results can last from 9 months to 2 years. There is no downtime associated with filler treatments, but you may experience some temporary bruising, redness, or swelling at the injection sites.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do dermal filler treatments cost?

The cost of JUVÉDERM treatments varies depending on the patient’s specific concerns and the filler or fillers used. During your consultation, we’ll discuss the concerns you have and determine the optimal placement and amount of filler needed to get the desired results.

What’s the difference between BOTOX® Cosmetic and fillers?

Because both are injectable treatments designed to address signs of aging, BOTOX and fillers are sometimes confused. They’re actually very different. The active ingredient in BOTOX is a purified form of the botulinum toxin that works by temporarily relaxing muscles that cause “dynamic” wrinkles. These are sometimes called “expression lines” because they develop when you smile, frown, squint, appear surprised, or make any other facial expression. Crow’s feet, worry lines between the eyes, and horizontal forehead lines are the most common dynamic wrinkles treated with BOTOX. Fillers restore volume to lines and creases that develop with age. Combining fillers with BOTOX is common and creates an overall rejuvenated appearance.

Can filler treatments be reversed?

Even though the vast majority of patients are happy with the results of filler injections, some patients aren’t satisfied with the outcomes. Fillers using hyaluronic acid, such as JUVÉDERM, can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase.
