A patient with any fine lines, wrinkles or creases may benefit from a facial filler or multiple fillers, depending on their facial anatomy, bone structure and personal desires. A facial filler is an injectable treatment and is non-surgical in nature. A filler is essentially used to repair the folllowing facial features: crevices and depressions in the skin, fine lines and loss of facial volume. Depending on the area of the face and the nature of the crease or crevice, there is an appropriate and matching filler to be selected with the help of Dr. Robert Schwarcz, a highly esteemed oculoplastic cosmetic surgeon in NYC. Fillers are especially effective in creating the appearance of fullness and volume in areas where there is a loss of muscle or tissue. Facial fillers are most commonly used in the lips, cheeks, lower eyelids and asolabial folds (otherwise known as laugh lines and smile lines found between the nose and corners of the mouth).
Common Facial Fillers:
- Restylane Silk
Most popular lip enhancement facial filler.
Minimizes facial lines, wrinkles and light creases and smooths out your skin.
A denser facial filler used to treat deeper creases and folds on the face.

Sculptra offers full facial rejuvenation, creates volume and improves your skin's texture.
A volumizing implant filler used to shape, contour and treat the nasolabial folds and wrinkles at the corners of the mouth.
Soft-tissue fillers, such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Sculptra or Radiesse can help fill in these facial lines and creases while creating a more aesthetically balanced and harmonious appearance. They are most commonly used in the cheeks as well as the lips. Dr. Schwarcz is one of the few surgeons who specialize in placing fillers in the lower eyelids. Facial fillers can be used alone or simultaneous with Botox for optimal results. If you are seeking overall more dramatic results, you may also want to consider the benefits of facial fillers with a facelift.
Improving Your Skin Texture with Facial Fillers
Facial fillers, or injectable fillers, are primarily used to improve the appearance of the skin's texture. In other words, they are used to create smoother, healthier looking skin while filling in crevices, wrinkles, creases, depressions, and furrows in the skin. Many of our New York patients enjoy the use of fillers in the lips to create plumper, fuller looking lips while accentuating the lines around the lips.

What You Can Expect
While injectable fillers are highly effective in creating smoother, younger, fuller looking skin where it is applied, the results are temporary. The body eventually metabolizes injected material. If you seek somthing more permanent, explore the option of a facial implant with Dr. Schwarcz today. Generally, results last a few months. Your age, texure of your skin, and environment may influence the effectiveness of facial fillers. Facial fillers are highly effective but can be utilized in conjunction with a chemical peel for the development of refreshed, new skin.
