Non-surgical Procedure

Dermal Fillers NJ

While aging is a natural process and you can’t do anything about it, there are many things you can choose to have to hide your age or at least not make it too obvious. Here’s where it will help to learn more about dermal fillers NJ. Our conservative approach aims to enhance your natural facial features while emphasizing your proportional beauty by using the fillers to correct asymmetry and effects of aging.

Noninvasive Dermal Fillers – Your Age Doesn’t Have to Be Obvious

There are two essential factors why a person looks youthful – elastin and collagen. They make the skin elastic and supple, two characteristics that you gradually lose as you age because your body starts producing less of them. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines become visible on your face. You will also notice the sudden volume loss in the middle part of your face, which results in other problems, such as sagging jowls, hollowed eyes, and deep nasolabial between your mouth and nose.

Noticeable hollows in the skin, volume loss, creases, and lines – all these problems have one solution, the noninvasive derma fillers. Aside from enhancing your lips’ shape and volume, derma fillers can also help make the appearance of your hands, chest, and neck more youthful and vibrant.

Trusted Physicians with Years of Experience

To ensure your safety, you must only get it done by competent physicians from a reputable clinic. We’ve got all these covered. Our licensed clinic is proud of our double board certified surgeon who is equipped with skills, experience and has undergone rigorous training to earn his spot as the best in the field. Using only the latest innovations and leading-edge injection techniques, including the non-needle cannula, you are assured of your comfort and results that look more than your money’s worth.

Dermal Fillers for Folds Around the Eyes and Face, Creases, and Lines

You can have dermal fillers done to address the problematic areas of your face, which include the following:

  • Minimize the crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Increase volume under the eyes to get rid of the hollowed-out appearance
  • Make the tear troughs smoother
  • Fill in the spaces made visible by fine lines
  • Address issues with nasolabial folds, including smile lines
  • Lift your sagging jowls and boost the volume of your cheeks
  • Eliminate creases around the mouth

Our experienced surgeon always put your safety first above anything else. There are many dermal fillers in the market, and each of them addresses different areas of concern. Dr. Gartner will look into your condition before giving their recommendations on which one is best for you.

This is among the most popular dermal filler in the US mainly due to its long-lasting effects, efficacy, and, most of all, safety. It delivers results fast. You will instantly see wrinkles and lines become less visible, making it a perfect solution for tear trough lines and nasolabial folds. It also enhances the natural features of your cheeks and lips. You will enjoy longer results with repeated visits or about 9 to 12 months for one session.
Another factor that makes this filler popular is its hyaluronic acid content, which has many similarities to the same substance that naturally occurs in the body. Doctors also use hyaluronidase, a substance injected to dissolve the acid.

Juvederm Voluma

This dermal filler has a unique formula that addresses the lost volume in the cheek area that can make one look older than his/her age. It can also lift and brighten up the hollows under the eyes, sagging jowls, and lines around the mouth. Using the innovative VYCROSS™ technology, you can be assured that the effects of the procedure will last up to two years.

Juvederm Ultra™ and Juvederm Ultra Plus™a

Juvederm is available in these two formulations – Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus. Both types contain a smooth gel that shows instant results once injected. They quickly make facial folds and wrinkles smooth and less visible. Ultra Plus has a more potent formula intended for deeper wrinkles and folds. Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid that boosts the body’s supply of the substance. One session can last up to a year, and repeated treatments mean longer effects.

Belotero Balance®

This dermal filler is injectable and shows fast results that will last from 9 to 12 months. It helps in making the skin smoother and softer, especially in the tear troughs, around the eyes and mouth, and other visible fine lines.


This is considered a leading edge in fillers intended for correcting facial folds, wrinkles, and lines. It is also effective in enhancing the cheeks’ volume and facial contouring. The body naturally produces a building block that helps maintain youthful skin, known as collagen. Radiesse stimulates the body to produce collagen. This FDA-approved dermal filler lasts longer than the types containing hyaluronic acid. The results last for a year, and you will see instant changes after your first treatment.


This FDA-approved dermal filler is collagen-based and works best in minimizing the scarring indentations left by acne. It also gives the face a softer and natural-looking skin that will last up to 5 years.


It consists of a synthetic material that will result in younger-looking, smoother, and fuller skin once injected on the skin’s surface. In addition, this filler gradually makes the skin thicker to address problems with sunken areas of the face and the appearance of folds and wrinkles. A series of 3-month treatments can last for years.

Dermal Fillers for Fuller Lips

A trip to our Medical Spa in NJ can be more fulfilling than what you’d hope for. We also have long years of successful experience in doing lip augmentation. Dr. Gartner always ensures the results will look good but not overdone. Your lips will still look natural but more enhanced and aesthetically pleasing. You can try the service to remodel your flattened or thin lips to make them sexier and younger-looking.
Two of the most renowned dermal fillers intended to enhance and restore the shape and volume of the lips are Juvederm and Restylane. Our skilled doctor always aim to deliver pleasing results and a short recovery period.

Fillers are usually premixed with a bit of lidocaine to make you feel comfortable throughout the process. While the process only lasts for 15 minutes, you will still be consulted about the size and appearance of your lips from start to finish. While being attended to by a doctor, they will hand you a mirror to let you decide whether you are already contented with the size, or you want more fuller lips.

Are You A Candidate For Dermal Filler?

When deciding whether or not an individual is a good candidate for dermal fillers, there are a few factors that play a role. Injections of neuromodulators have been made available to men and women of a wide range of ages for the aim of facial rejuvenation. These injections may be of great benefit to the recipients and provide them with temporary benefits that they can enjoy for the months to come. There are a lot of individuals who would rather put off undergoing any kind of surgical procedure until they are older, and this is the greatest treatment choice for them.

Even though there are a lot of different dermal fillers available on the market today, individuals receiving any of them need to have the same fundamental qualities. To begin, a person must be in generally excellent health in order to be a candidate for dermal filler injections. This would include having skin that is in a generally healthy condition, not having any infections in the region that is going to be treated, and not having any allergies to the components that are included inside the dermal filler. In the same way as with any other kind of medical or cosmetic treatment, the better your health is going into the service, the better outcomes you will have when the process is over.

Lip Areas You Can Choose to Enhance


The most important region to look into in enhancing the lips is the vermilion border. It is the junction between the red and white areas of your lips. This is where the dermal fillers will be injected since it makes it easier to define your lip borders. For a pouty look, the fillers will be injected into the red area of the lips. Your doctor will recommend a 40/60 size of your upper and lower lip to make the result prominent. You can also request your preferred ratio of augmented lips. For example, in Latin America, patients prefer a more natural lip profile with a 1:1 ratio.

Happy appeal

You can have the procedure done to turn your natural frowns into a more positive and happy vibe. This can be done by filling your oral commissures in your mouth’s corner. This will push your lips’ corners upwards or horizontally to wipe away the frown caused by sagging skin.

Curve and shape

There is an area in your face, a double ridgeline that connects your nose and upper lip, called the philtrum. Enhancing the philtrum will make your lips look more sensual and give your upper lip more shape.

Upper lip

The V-shaped point in the middle of your upper lip, called the cupid’s bow, can be enhanced along with the philtrum. The result will be a more appealing and sexier shape of your upper lip.

Dos And Don’ts After Receiving Cosmetic Fillers: Recommendations For Aftercare Of Dermal Fillers 

Can I Take Painkillers Before Or After Receiving Injections Of Dermal Filler? 

As anti-inflammatory medicines may thin the blood and increase the risk of redness, swelling, bleeding, and bruising, we advise avoiding them both before and after the treatment. 

The two most well-known anti-inflammatory medications are ibuprofen and aspirin. However, it’s crucial that you inform us of any medications you’re taking at your appointment so we can discuss any potential situations in which you should avoid taking your medication. That said, all of the details will be discussed during your one-on-one consultation with your medical professional. 

After Receiving Injections Of Dermal Fillers, Can I Exercise? 

Before engaging in any rigorous activity following dermal fillers, we advise waiting at least a week to reduce the risk of infection. 

Not only should you avoid yoga at that period, but we also advise against any activity such as hot yoga or other strenuous exercise. This is due to the possibility that inverted poses like headstands might raise your risk of swelling and bruising. 

How Soon After Getting Dermal Filler Injections May I Consume Alcohol? 

Although consuming alcohol won’t change the effects of dermal fillers over time, it might worsen bruising and swelling. It’s advised to refrain from drinking alcohol for at least two days following the service. 

How Soon Can I Travel After Getting Dermal Fillers? 

After receiving dermal fillers, flying shouldn’t pose any problems. There is no proof that the fluctuating air pressure in the plane’s interior has any impact, despite some worries in this regard. That said, make sure to run by your experts any concerns you may have and they will be able to go over the precautions to take if you are considering flying after your treatment.

How Soon Can I Go Swimming After Getting Cosmetic Fillers? 

For a week after treatment, stay away from the sun, sunbeds, and places with extreme heat such as saunas and Turkish baths. If you do go outside in the sun, always use sunscreen. 

Additionally, you shouldn’t expose your skin to very cold temperatures for a week after treatment. 

How Soon May I Touch My Face After Getting Dermal Fillers? 

For at least six hours after treatment, avoid touching or rubbing the treated area. You may then lightly clean the area and use little makeup. 

After Having Dermal Fillers, May I Smoke? 

You may smoke right after getting fillers including lip fillers. Smoking, however, is very bad for your health and, although it won’t have a direct impact on the treatment’s outcomes, it will continue to age and dry up your skin. 

The blood vessels in your skin’s surface layers become more thin when you smoke. Because of the reduced blood flow, your skin doesn’t get as much oxygen or nutrition. Smoking over time may result in age spots, sagging, discoloration, and wrinkles. 

Is There A Special Aftercare Guideline For Cheek Fillers? 

It’s recommended to abide by the typical cheek filler aftercare instructions. Other than avoiding makeup for the first six hours after treatment, there is no special aftercare advice for cheeks. 

Is There A Special Aftercare Guideline For Tear Through Filler? 

You should adhere to the normal aftercare instructions for face fillers if you have dermal fillers placed in your tear troughs. 

Apply concealer beneath your eyes if necessary to hide any bruises until the region heals. That said, for the first six hours after treatment, you should refrain from using any eye makeup. 

How Long Do Face Fillers Take To Settle? 

The settling of face fillers might take up to two weeks depending on the person and skin type.

Dermal Fillers for the Hands

Your hands are usually overworked but less pampered, resulting in their poor and old-looking appearance. In addition, your hands are frequently subjected to inclement weather, harsh chemicals, and sun damage, so you need to take care of them too. As you age, your hands also lose volume resulting in the tendons at the backs of your hands becoming a stand-out.
One of the best dermal fillers to revive the youthful look of your hands is Radiesse. Your specialist will inject it gently in the area between the protruding tendons. Once done, they will massage your hands until your skin becomes smoother and fuller. This treatment can also be done for those who want to eliminate freckles and fine lines brought about by laser treatment or sun exposure.

Dermal Fillers for the Chest

Your chest also gets exposed to the harmful UV rays next to your face and hands. It may come as a result of frequent swimming or wearing low-cut tops. You will start seeing visible signs of UV damage at age 30 to 35. They include craggy lines and sunspots on your skin that can worsen by the age of 50 if you don’t have it cosmetically enhanced.
Belotero Balance is the dermal filler of choice for the little crevices and lines in the chest. Its ultrafine structure makes it ideal for this condition. You can also have the filler along with laser treatments to deal with texture and pigment issues.

Dermal Filler for Sunken Scars

Aside from the unpleasant appearance, there are times when sunken scars also bring back unpleasant memories of what caused the marks. Whether your scars are caused by accidents, health problems, or acne, your doctor can apply the right amount of filler to address your concern.
The process is typically done immediately after undergoing Subcision, which breaks the tethered scar tissue holding the deep scars to the fascia underneath with the use of a blunt-tipped tool. The procedure releases the skin, making it easier for your doctor to use the dermal filler as support from below. Only a small amount of the filler is needed to stimulate collagen formation that lifts and adds volume to the surrounding skin. Your doctor can suggest laser treatments to make redness less visible and help the skin resurface to get a flawless result.
Bellafill is the most commonly used for this kind of skin issue. However, your doctor can recommend other fillers depending on your skin type and how the scar looks. You will always be given an option to choose the kind of filler most suited for your health needs and lifestyle.

Dermal Fillers NJ – Most Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know that I'm getting the services of the right facility?

First, take note that in New Jersey, it is illegal to inject dermal fillers if you are a non-physician, including nurses with advanced training. Our clinic is proud of our licensed physicians qualified to perform the service and have long years of experience using dermal fillers in different areas of the body. This is not a matter of who offers the service at a lower price. Never compromise your safety, especially when it involves injection, which can make your problem better or worse.

Why is it important to go to a licensed physician?

Never settle for any less if you want a safe procedure, shorter recovery period, and long-lasting results.

How do I know what the best dermal filler for me is?

Each patient has different goals when it comes to the results they want from the dermal filler. Even if two patients would have something done in the same area, they won’t likely have similar goals. Each person is unique, and in this case, every patient has something different going on under their skin. Dr. Gartner will assess the condition before choosing the type or types of filler they can use to give you a more natural-looking result.

What do I need to prepare for during treatment?

Your physician will explain the process as they go about it. This will make you feel at ease and comfortable knowing what’s going on and what to expect. The dermal fillers are injected into the skin using a smooth-tipped cannula or an ultra-fine needle. Once the needle is in, your doctor will gently massage the area before continuing the injection towards the length of the fold or wrinkle until the problem area has been filled. To reduce bruising, our physicians premix the fillers with lidocaine to make the experience comfortable and safe for all our patients.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers are categorized based on the substance they contain. Our licensed physicians always use branded and FDA-approved fillers for efficiency and your safety.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

HA fillers keep the skin hydrated and make it plump. It makes the skin softer as the filler’s molecules attract and combine water molecules in your skin. As a result, it boosts the production of the skin’s collagen. Through time, your body will metabolize and absorb the injected acid. It increases the skin volume underneath, leading to the restoration of a youthful and smoother appearance.
HA fillers contain hyaluronidase that acts as an antidote. They come in handy when patients consult physicians to do something about the unpleasant results they’ve gotten from another practice.
Some of the known brand names of HA fillers include the following:

  • The RHA collection
  • Revanesse Versa
  • Belotero Balance
  • Restylane products
  • Juvederm products
Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

CaHA is another naturally occurring substance in the bones. As a filler, the calcium particles are so tiny and contained in a smooth gel. The most popular FDA-approved brand of this type is Radiesse.

Poly-L-lactic Acid

It’s safe to use Poly-L-lactic acid in the body since it is biocompatible. This acid has been utilized in many medical tools for the past years, including dissolvable stitches. The fillers work by smoothing out fine lines and rebuilding the natural collagen of your skin. An FDA-approved brand of this type includes Sculptra.
Both CaHA and Poly-L-lactic acid fillers are injected beneath the skin to stimulate collagen. They have many uses, including butt augmentation, making the skin tighter, firmer, and smoother, and contouring the bony areas of your body.

How much fillers will you inject on me?

The answer will depend on what you want to achieve and the condition of your problem areas. However, you will only know the exact amount or the type of filler to be used upon consultation with Dr. Gartner.
In general, here are some notions that will give you an idea about how much filler you will require:

  • Nasolabial folds or smile lines – 1 syringe will typically improve the appearance. For those with heavy and sagging cheeks, it is recommended to fix this problem first to maximize the effects of the fillers.
  • Under eyes – 1 to 2 syringes for the skin around the eyes, but you will need more if your cheeks need injections too.
  • Cheeks – You will see noticeable results with 1 to 2 syringes, but patients over 45 years old typically require up to 5 syringes for best results.
  • Lips – 1 syringe is enough, but it depends on the patient. Those who want plumper lips go for 2 to 3 syringes.
Does the process hurt?

Your trusted physicians from our clinic premix the fillers with lidocaine, a numbing agent that will make the injection more bearable and comfortable.
