Benefits of Dermal Fillers Like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® , and Sculptra® for New York-Area Patients
New York plastic surgeon Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh administers JUVEDERM® and other dermal fillers for NYC-area residents who wish to revitalize their appearance without surgery. Once a treatment requested by only a select few, injectable dermal fillers have become so common that they are often asked for by product name at Cosmoplastic Surgery.
Although each year the variety of products and indications for use increase, all dermal fillers share these common, rapidly visible benefits: replenished volume, diminished deep lines and wrinkles, smoothed creases, and a rejuvenated, refreshed facial aesthetic.

A standard in the world of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, JUVEDERM® XC is intended for treating nasolabial folds and other moderate to severe facial wrinkles, with results that can last for up to a year.* The "XC" in this and the names of other JUVEDERM® products made by Allergan indicates that the injectable contains a small amount of lidocaine to make the process more comfortable.
This member of the JUVEDERM® facial filler focuses on the mouth, with two primary applications: smoothing out fine lines around the lips and adding volume to the lips themselves to make them appear fuller.*
Also intended for increasing lip volume and filling in perioral lines, the effects of this member of the "next generation" of JUVEDERM® products can last for a year under ideal conditions.*
Another injectable that focuses on moderate to severe facial lines, JUVEDERM VOLLURE® XC is made to last longer in the skin: up to 18 months with optimal treatment.*
As with all of the injectables in the JUVEDERM® line, VOLUMA® XC is a hyaluronic acid-based facial filler. Moisture-holding hyaluronic acid molecules are common in youthful, healthy skin. Unlink the other fillers, JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC is not made to address wrinkles, but to add volume to what is known as the "apple" of the cheeks, creating rounder, younger-looking contours and providing a subtle, nonsurgical lift that impacts the lower half of the face.*
Thin lips and vertical lip lines are the target of this hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler from maker Galderma. The formula us ideal for fine corrections and subtle changes to lip size and shape.
Also from Galderma, Lyft serves the dual purpose of addressing smile lines and other moderate to severe lines on the face, and augmenting the cheeks to change mid-face contours.
Targeting the laugh lines made from nasolabial folds and lip lines, Refyne is made with a proprietary XpresHAn Technology™ designed to provide natural-looking results.
Also made with XpresHAn Technology™, this filler focuses on the nasolabial folds and marionette lines that cause deep laugh lines.
Unlike the other, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers on this list, Sculptra® is made from poly-L lactic acid, which not only serves to provide volume in the place of lost collagen, but stimulates the growth of new collagen for a long-lasting rejuvenated effect on the face.* Dr. Alizadeh has used Sculptra over 15 years on hundreds of patients and is considered a national expert having trained other physicians in its use.
Made by Merz, Radiesse® Plus also differs from the hyaluronic acid-based fillers, as its gel base is full of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, which serve to stimulate collagen production. This addresses nasolabial and other moderate to severe facial folds just after injection, as well as provides a longer-term benefit.
In addition to serving as a dermal filler for the face, Radiesse® can also be used to correct volume loss in hands that have wrinkles, as well as highly visible veins and tendons.
These dermal fillers may be used individually, in combination, or as part of a Liquid Facelift that may also include BOTOX® Cosmetic injections for smoothing dynamic wrinkles, Kybella® for addressing a double chin, and more.
Numerous medical practices and medi-spas offer JUVEDERM® and dermal fillers, but board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh is one of a select few who administers all injections himself and guarantees a pain-free injection for patients who choose sedation. He has served as an international expert in the field and is sought for his involvement in advisory boards and clinical trials with new injectable technology and has served as a national trainer for many doctors. In fact, Dr. Alizadeh has such extensive training and experience injecting dermal fillers that he has perfected his own specialized technique, called the NaturaFill™ Injectable Dermal Filler treatment to optimize outcomes.
The NaturaFill™ Injectable Dermal Filler approach guarantees pain free soft tissue fill with concurrent use of anesthetic sedation, minimizes post-treatment bruising through the use of supplements and on-site calming strategies, and emphasizes natural-looking final results. Dr. Alizadeh's goal is safe, subtle aesthetic enhancement, so he will take every precaution to ensure that you can still make your normal facial expressions following treatment with JUVEDERM® or other dermal fillers.
For patients who would like longer-lasting results, Dr. Alizadeh may recommend NaturaGlow™ Fat Transfer or a facial cosmetic surgery procedure such as NaturaLine™ Neck Lift, NaturaLook™ Eyelid Surgery, or a NaturaBrow™ Brow Lift. During your consultation, you will be able to describe and identify your areas of dissatisfaction and, together with Dr. Alizadeh, create a treatment plan and timeline that address your needs, fit within your budget, and help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
