Dermal Fillers

The search for the ideal 'filler' of skin defects continues to evolve. We search for products that are safe to use, natural in appearance and feel and long lasting. We offer several types of Wrinkle Fillers including Juvederm, Jessner, Radiesse, Collagen, Restylane, Zyderm and Sculptra.

Soft Tissue fillers can be used to achieve the following:

The Zimmerman Center offers the following products: Zyderm or Zyplast:
These are injectable collagens, derived from bovine (cow) collagen, where it is purified, treated and processed into an injectable form. This remained the gold standard for years, until the production of injectable hyaluronic acids, called Restylane and Juvaderm.

Restylane and Juvaderm:
These products inject very smoothly with little discomfort, swelling or bruising so there is minimal post treatment recovery needed, and are excellent for filling fine lines and plumping up lips. One can expect about three to six months of improvement, and occasionally longer depending on how fast one body dissolves away the foreign material.

For areas requiring more diffuse volume, Sculptra, which promotes the body to produce more of its own collagen, is used. Often two injection sessions are performed about four weeks apart, with correction lasting well up to a year or more. Fat Injection is another alternative to provide fullness to facial areas as well as sculpt other areas of the body. Harvested from areas of excess, the fat is purified and re-injected into areas of need, with long-term correction achieved.

(formerly Radiance) Radiesse is the latest injectable wrinkle filler used to create fuller lips and to fill deep wrinkles and lines. Radiesse is long-lasting; recent studies have shown that a single Radiesse treatment can last a year or longer. Radiesse is made of microscopic calcium crystals suspended in a gel, and it has already proven safe in several other medical applications. Unlike collagen, no skin testing is required and allergic reactions are uncommon. Results are visible immediately following the treatment and Radiesse is popular among patients because it contains no animal products, is very compatible with the body, and lasts much longer than other injectable fillers.

Wrinkle fillers are especially effective on deep lines or wrinkles - the ones you can see even when your face is fully relaxed. They can also be used on any indentation in your skin, such as scars.

Serious complications from wrinkle fillers are rare. Swelling, redness and tenderness might occur, but minimize over a few days.

There is no pain after the injection. Immediately after the treatment, you can expect slight redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears within a few days.
