FILLERS

 

“Dr. Grodberg helped me make the best choices for my facial needs, so I have VolumaTM in my cheeks, a little Sculptra® in my temples and a little Juvederm® in the inner corners of the hollows below my eyes. But the work is so skillful that no one would ever know that I had anything done.”
—MM, Franklin Lakes

“Because there are a variety of injectable substances that are used to “fill-in” lines and wrinkles, and to restore volume to facial structures, it is crucial for patients to get expert advice on which products and treatments best suit his or her individual needs. The proper injection of these products is critical and requires a thorough understanding of each product’s characteristics and the details of each patient’s facial structure. I was an early adopter of all the modern filler products and in many cases have years of experience with them. My expertise in selecting and injecting these products is widely recognized, including by the product manufacturers. The fillers available today offer exciting options that could not even be contemplated just a few years ago and I find it is very gratifying for me to work with my patients to identify and achieve the best solutions for them using these highly versatile new products.”
—Dr. Michele Grodberg

Juvéderm® Treatment

If you’re considering fillers, here are Dr. Grodberg’s answers to a few frequently asked questions:

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FILLERS?

Fillers are categorized by the nature of the substance used as filler, which in turn dictates the look, feel, onset of action and longevity of the filler. Some examples of popular categories of fillers include Hyaluronic Acid (Juvederm® Ultra, Juvederm® Ultra Plus, Juvederm® Voluma TM, Belotero®, Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, Restylane Lyft®), Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse®) and Poly-L-Lactic Acid (Sculptra®).”

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH FILLER IS BEST FOR ME?

“I carefully examine the patient’s facial characteristics and structure, explain and discuss each option with the patient and then make my recommendation. There are many factors to be considered in this analysis, including the patient’s individual bone structure volume loss and skin elasticity, the nature of the desired correction, the likely longevity of the results achieved, and careful consideration of the benefits and limitations of the different products available.”

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR THE TREATMENT?

“No special preparation is required other than avoiding intake of products that may increase your susceptibility to bruising such as Aspirin, Advil®, Motrin®, Vitamin E and certain supplements. Make sure to check with me if you have questions about any medications or supplements you take regularly. Usually a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin prior to treatment so you may be asked to arrive in advance of your scheduled appointment to allow time for numbing to be achieved.”
