You may notice results shortly after getting facial fillers, although mild swelling, bruising and redness are common side effects directly after your appointment, which can hide your final result. It can take up to two weeks for your final outcome to develop, so we recommend scheduling your appointment at least this far in advance of an important event.

Facial fillers generally last anywhere from 6 to 24 months, depending on the type and brand of filler used. Fillers are not permanent, so touch-up treatments will be required to maintain your results.

How Fillers Work


Hyaluronic acid fillers work by temporarily plumping the skin, which smooths lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a brighter and more youthful look and feel. Because HA molecules are able to retain 1,000 times their weight in water, hyaluronic acid fillers are also excellent choices for adding volume to the face and lips.

What are dermal fillers? 


Dermal fillers are a mainstay of non-surgical aesthetic medicine. While Botox® helps prevent wrinkles by softening muscle contraction, dermal filler are injectable volumizing gels can restore lift and youthfulness to your face. 

Dermal fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid which is a substance that naturally exists in your body. Hyaluronic acid is an important component of youthful, supple, elastic skin.  It hydrates the skin by holding water and acts as a cushion and lubricant to reduce damage to the skin.  Hyaluronic acid is also involved in the transport of essential nutrients to the skin’s viable cells. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide long-lasting results (and to increase face volume naturally).


By adding the Hyaluronic acid fillers, the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid levels are restored, re-creating that youthful appearance by minimizing facial lines and restoring facial volume.

There are a number of fillers available on the market, and new dermal fillers are on their way!


The choice of nonsurgical filler used depends on the anatomy of the patient, the area being treated and the desired effect. For example,  


  • Restylane® Contour improves “midface fullness.” In other words, sunken cheeks.  It creates a flexible, smooth gel that integrates with the skin and soft tissue to lift and volumize the cheeks in a very natural way.  As we age, the declining collagen production particularly shows in our cheeks. They flatten and sink. The buccal fat pad that supports the cheeks in our youth can thin and descend.

  • Restylane® Kysse™ is designed to enhance lip volume and minimize the appearance of fine lines above the mouth, leaving you with a natural look and feel. It has also been shown to improve lip texture and color.


Are dermal fillers safe?


The fillers listed here are FDA approved and are considered safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Each filler is biosynthetic and of non-animal origin, and has been proven to be safe and effective for skin of all types and colors for facial volume restoration and facial contouring. Depending on the depth of the lines and wrinkles to be treated, a combination of fillers may be appropriate for use in just one treatment session.

Lip contouring, chin contouring, or cheek augmentation need careful evaluation and the best facial fillers for those depends on the exact overall anatomy and bone structure of the patient. The medical practitioners at Ithaca Medical Aesthetics, specialize in the use of nonsurgical fillers for natural facial volume restoration, facial contouring and eliminating facial lines.
