Injectables Q & A

Shoreline Medical Spa

What are injectables?

Injectables, also called dermal fillers, are carefully formulated substances injected into your soft tissues to restore lost volume or enhance your facial contours. There are many different excellent options to choose from, each with a distinct set of pros and cons.

During your initial visit, Dr. Goldblatt takes the time to discuss your treatment goals and educate you on the available options. You’ll work in partnership to determine the best course of action for your needs and goals.

Can a dermal filler plump or define my lips?

If you’d like to enhance the volume in your lips, JuvedermⓇ Ultra XC and Juvederm VolbellaⓇ XC can help. Both products offer subtle plumping and can restore lost volume or simply make your lips look lusher. These fillers can also help smooth vertical lip lines, which grow deeper as you age.  

Can dermal fillers restore overall cheek volume?

If you’ve lost volume in your cheeks, Juvederm VolumaⓇ XC might be a great option. This filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin that provides a cushioning effect. When injected into your cheeks, Juvederm Voluma XC can enhance the contours of your face, tightening skin and in some cases even improving the appearance of mild jowls.

What can be done about smile lines?

The lines that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth are among the first places to show age. JuvedermⓇ XC can help fill in those areas of lost volume, smoothing lines and reducing the appearance of skin folds.  

Can dermal fillers create new collagen?

RadiesseⓇ is a dermal filler created from calcium-based microspheres. Once the filler is in place, it prompts your body to create new collagen. As the microspheres are slowly absorbed and processed by your body, a new layer of collagen remains, making this filler an option that delivers even after the filler itself is long gone.

SculptraⓇ Aesthetic is another type of dermal filler that stimulates collagen production. Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid, which triggers your body to create new collagen in the deeper dermal layers. Like Radiesse, Sculptra is slowly absorbed over time and leaves behind a layer of renewed collagen. Sculptra is usually delivered in as many as three separate injections spaced over a period of time.   

Can dermal fillers treat acne scars?

If you have acne scarring with a pitted appearance, a dermal filler called BellafillⓇ can help by enhancing the volume beneath your scars and giving your skin a smoother overall appearance. Bellafill is made of microspheres of polymethyl methacrylate, and results last for around one year. Bellafill can also be used to smooth nasolabial folds.

A combination of fillers, with or without Botox, is known as a “liquid facelift” and can create impressive results.

What is platelet rich fibrin therapy?

PRF Therapy is an 100% natural approach, which allows the body's own natural resource to support cellular regeneration and repair.

PRF, platelet rich fibrin matrix, obtained during your service, is made up of growth factors and stem cells, from your own blood. The fibrin forms into a soft gel, which is then injected into areas such as the tear troughs (under eyes), fine lines around lips, acne scars, nasal labial folds, and marionette lines.  In addition, it supports hair restoration for both men and women.

Once PRF is injected, it stays in the skin for several days, working to build your own collagen, yielding the best anti-aging result from the cellular level.
