Dermal Fillers

When Dr. Shatkin started in practice in 1989, most patients knew little about facial injections and even plastic surgeons had minimal use of products to add volume or augment the facial features. Original injectable materials were in the form of collagen injections. Most of these injections required skin testing and 2-4 weeks to see the effect prior to injecting larger volumes.

New products have evolved and currently, we perform a multitude of different fillers to accommodate the needs of the patient. At the Aesthetic Associates Centre, we utilize only FDA approved injectables.

The cost will vary depending on what areas are treated and how much product is used.

What You Should Know About Dermal Fillers

Lip Fillers in Buffalo, NY

Lip filler popularity has increased in recent years as a non-surgical way to enhance the appearance of the lips. Lip fillers are a type of dermal filler that are injected into the lips to add volume and shape. They can also be used to improve symmetry, enhance the cupid’s bow, and add definition to the border of the lips.

Popular types of lip fillers include hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. These fillers are made of a natural substance found in the body and are biocompatible, meaning they are less likely to cause an allergic reaction.

The procedure is usually quick and relatively painless, with most people reporting only mild discomfort during the injection. The results are immediate, although some swelling and redness can occur in the first 24-48 hours after treatment.

The popularity of lip fillers is driven by the desire for a more youthful and attractive appearance. It has also become more accessible, with many practitioners offering the treatment at a relatively affordable price. Additionally, the results are temporary, meaning that the patient can choose to repeat the treatment or not, as desired.

However, it is important to note that lip fillers should be done by a licensed professional, with a good reputation, as there are risks of complications if the procedure is not performed correctly.
