Dermal Fillers

Some of the earliest signs of aging occur when our faces begin losing volume, creating lines and creases. Injectable fillers such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and other wrinkle removal treatments offered at our Rochester, NY, practice produce long-lasting results that look natural and require little to no downtime.

Expertise Makes a Difference

Our board-certified dermatologists and certified nurse practitioners have the expertise to know which products are best suited for specific areas of the face and the needs of our patients.

Your Options

We offer a wide range of injectable fillers, giving our providers the versatility to address each patient’s unique concerns. We can tailor your treatment based on your cosmetic goals, and our injectors use their expertise to recommend the best filler for you. Fillers are made with substances that are found naturally in the body. They’re not permanent, and the body safely absorbs them. Most fillers, such as JUVÉDERM and Restylane products, are made using hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that’s able to retain moisture, which helps the skin look more youthful.

Here are the fillers offered at Dermatology Associates of Rochester (virtually all fillers are pre-mixed with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the actual injections):


The JUVÉDERM family of products includes:

  • Ultra XC: One of the most popular options for lip fillers. Adds volume to lips, including when your lips have thinned with age. Results last up to a year.
  • VOLUMA® XC: Approved by the FDA to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks. It’s injected deeper than most other fillers and produces results that can last up to 2 years.
  • VOLLURE™ XC: The most recent addition to the JUVÉDERM family. VOLLURE creates a smoother appearance by softening moderate to severe wrinkles, including “parentheses” around the mouth. Results can last up to 18 months.
  • VOLBELLA® XC: Specifically formulated to enhance lip volume and smooth the fine lines around the mouth. Results last up to a year.

  • Lyft: Addresses age-related volume loss in the mid-face area, especially the cheeks. Lyft can also boost nasolabial folds and other moderate to severe facial folds. Results last up to 12 months.
  • Silk: This smooth gel filler enhances lips and smooths lines around the mouth. It’s injected with an ultrafine needle to ensure precision treatments. Results last between 6 and 12 months.
  • Refyne™: This “next generation” filler softens nasolabial folds and marionette lines — often called “laugh lines” — to restore a more youthful appearance that still looks natural. Approved by the FDA in 2016, Refyne results can last up to 12 months.
  • Defyne™: Deeper lines require a filler that’s specifically created to address these concerns. Defyne works without limiting your range of facial emotions. Results last up to 12 months.


This is another hyaluronic acid filler, but it uses a slightly different formula to restore volume in most areas of the face. Its versatility enables injectors to use it for concerns ranging from nasolabial folds to tiny lip lines that require a soft, cohesive gel. Results can last 6 months or more.

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Even though Sculptra is often called a filler, it restores volume by gradually stimulating the production of new collagen. It’s formulated using poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), and patients usually require 2 or 3 treatments scheduled over about 4 months to get the best outcome. PLLA microparticles are absorbed and trigger new collagen. Results can last 2 years.

Sculptra is unique among injectable fillers because it can be used to safely augment the buttocks. Sometimes referred to as a “nonsurgical butt lift,” this approach doesn’t require any anesthesia or downtime, making it a great choice for busy women and men who want a shapelier derriere without invasive butt lift surgery.

Good candidates for this procedure are people who would like a relatively subtle improvement in the lift or shape of the buttocks. Although this approach is much less invasive than surgery, you should still be in good overall health and able to commit to multiple treatment sessions, because the results of the Sculptra butt lift are gradual.

Your dermatologist uses lidocaine to keep you comfortable during the procedure and marks the areas where the product will be administered. Your doctor then carefully adds the product using a needle or microcannula. The entire treatment takes about an hour, and full results can be achieved after a series of 2 to 3 appointments. After each treatment, you’ll be able to safely return to the majority of your normal activities immediately. Your results can last for years.

Fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic?

The answer is often both. BOTOX injections (along with XEOMIN® and Dysport® treatments) address different types of wrinkles than those corrected by fillers. We use fillers for wrinkles that result from volume loss and sun exposure. BOTOX, on the other hand, smooths wrinkles caused by a lifetime of changing facial expressions (called dynamic wrinkles) by temporarily immobilizing the muscles that control those movements.

Combining the injectable treatments during a single appointment produces more comprehensive results.

Women and men looking for injectable wrinkle removal treatments come from Brighton, Irondequoit, Henrietta, and throughout the Rochester, NY, metropolitan area for dermal filler injections at Dermatology Associates of Rochester.
