Juvéderm Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, and Voluma XC are injected by expert plastic surgeon Dr. Morin. Lidocaine, an injectable anesthetic has recently been added to Juvéderm® in order to numb the treatment area and minimize any potential discomfort. The results of this filler are visible right away and can last up to a year.

FAQs

How are dermal fillers injected?

Dermal fillers are FDA-approved and safe for use by most patients. Many of the fillers are made from substances found naturally in the body, or synthetically made to mimic natural substances. Fillers are generally injected into or just beneath the skin of the targeted area in order to restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At Dr. Morin’s office, we use a combination of Botox and several different dermal fillers in order to provide the best possible results based on an individual’s needs.

How should I prepare for my facial injections?

Dermal fillers are a fairly quick procedure and require little to no preparation. However, for optimal results, we recommend patients refrain from smoking and drinking alcohol 2 weeks prior to treatment. Dr. Morin will offer a list of medications to avoid at your consultation prior to the procedure.

What are the results of dermal fillers?

The results of injectable fillers typically last from a few months to up to a year. However, this is contingent upon the type of filler used and the area of your face that's addressed. Facial filler injections at our NYC area offices fill hollowed areas of the face, lines and wrinkles in less than an hour. They plump thin lips, fade scars and enhance facial symmetry while allowing patients to return almost immediately to their normal schedule.
