What are dermal fillers? 

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that insert gel-like substances into various parts of the face, chest, or hands. Each dermal filler is designed with a unique formulation that immediately adds facial volume, fills up wrinkles, or contours the lips, cheeks, or chin. Treatments with dermal fillers in Fairfield CT can replace the lost collagen, elastin, and proteins to rejuvenate your skin.

You must choose the ideal dermal filler for specific treatment areas and cosmetic goals. Gabrielle has a verifiably flawless track record when it comes to delivering fillers.

What are the benefits of dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers come with many unique advantages. Firstly, they come with very little downtime, so clients can quickly get back to the flow of their day, returning to work or school immediately. Secondly, dermal fillers are typically painless and come with very few side effects. Many fillers are made with naturally-derived hyaluronic acid and do not require allergy testing. Lastly, dermal fillers are versatile. They can combat age-related volume loss, correct lines, wrinkles, and folds, and augment depleted lip contours. Treatment is always personalized so that your results appear tasteful and sophisticated, never obvious or overdone. 

Am I a candidate for cosmetic injections?

For many patients, there comes a point at which topical creams, lotions, and serums are no longer sufficient methods of fighting the signs of aging. These clients may wish to improve their appearances, but they are unwilling to undergo an invasive surgery that will require anesthesia risks, scarring, and a lengthy recovery period. In these cases, injections with dermal fillers are the perfect middle ground solution to help revitalize the countenance and boost self-confidence. 

As with any cosmetic procedure, patients should be physically and emotionally healthy, non-smoking, and realistic in their expectations.

Restylane is a family of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that smoothen wrinkles, enhance lip volume, minimize fine lines around the mouth, restore facial volume to the cheeks, and reduce dark circles. Restylane works by infusing the naturally-occurring and biocompatible HA components underneath the skin to plump it up and fill out the fine lines. Hyaluronic acid clings to your skin and increases its water-retention capacity, making you look voluminous, dewy, and fresh.

Versa is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler by Revanesse. Like other HA-based dermal fillers, it provides an immediate lift to your skin tissues, plumping up your skin and filling out the wrinkles. Versa is different from other HA fillers because it’s specifically designed to last longer — the molecules break down slower, making the results last longer than most fillers. Furthermore, the HA formulation is extremely gentle and smooth, providing natural-looking results.

Sculptra is a long-lasting dermal filler classified as a collagen stimulator because it encourages your body to produce collagen fibers. Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a naturally-occurring component that facilitates your body’s natural collagen production capacity. As such, Sculptra produces immediate results like all other fillers, but its true benefit is that it makes your body produce natural collagen fibers that last long after the poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is metabolized by your body.

  • Type: Collagen Stimulator
  • Onset: Immediate results with continued improvements
  • Longevity: 9 to 18 months with optimal treatment

Radiesse is a dermal filler that plumps the facial lines and wrinkles caused by age and the loss of collagen. Radiesse is a collagen stimulator that produces immediate results but primarily focuses on restoring your body’s natural collagen reserves. It’s made of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA), gel microspheres that work immediately but also make your body produce its own fillers. As such, the results last long after the CaHA components are metabolized by your body.

Filler Reversal

  • Type: HA Filler Reversal
  • Onset: Within 24 hours
  • Longevity: Permanent

Filler reversal is a procedure wherein our providers carefully deliver injections of an enzyme called hyaluronidase to dissolve the hyaluronic acid components. When injected carefully, this injection makes your body metabolize the HA components in your skin to restore your pre-filler skin and appearance. This is the perfect treatment for those who are unhappy with their filler results or want to reverse an over-filled appearance. The filler removal injections are delivered strategically to prevent lumpiness.
