An abundance of healthy collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple, youthful appearance. Natural collagen begins to break down as you age, causing skin laxity, wrinkles and a loss in facial volume, which can make your skin look and feel old. Dermal Cosmetic Fillers are replacements for your own lost collagen. Derived from natural human collagen, these fillers stimulate production of your own natural collagen with results that are both immediate and long lasting.
Dr. Kayal will consult with you to determine your goals, evaluate your medical history, discuss risks and benefits of treatment and formulate a treatment plan targeted to your needs. For facial features such as the fine lines around the lips, cupids bow, H-Lines (Glabella) and Bunny lines, he may suggest a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler which last 9-12 months. Dr. Kayal uses a variety of HA’s such as Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Voluma and Belotero. For deeper lines such as the nasal labial folds, marionette lines, and to build up lost volume to the cheeks, a Calicim Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse) filler may be recommended that can last up to two years in many patients. An alternative for this area is Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid-based treatment. Once injected, it begins working deep within the skin to stimulate collagen production, reinforcing the skin’s inner structure and restoring its volume.

Other uses for Dermal Cosmetic Fillers include treating Acne Scars. For that we offer Bellafill a new level of filler correction. In addition to immediately adding volume to the skin to lift acne scars, Bellafill helps your skin re-create it’s own firmer structure for a smoother appearance and lasting results.
