Dermal Fillers and Volumizers
Dermal fillers and volumizers are used to gently restore volume to the face and hands to help lift, contour, smooth and plump.
Our very own, Dr. Josie Tenore, has performed over 4,000 dermal filler treatments, utilizing a wide range of filler products to create a custom, natural-looking result for each patient. Her artistry provides her with an innate ability to beautifully enhance existing facial features and restore a youthful appearance for patients.
“As an aesthetic restoration artist, I believe that everyone deserves to look better, as long as they look like themselves and not some Hollywood distortion of who they were.” Josie Tenore, M.D. (Dr. Josie)
Each dermal filler product has a specific composition that is suited for select areas of the face and hands. An experienced provider may use one or multiple products to create the end result, based on the patient’s goals.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Many dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring component of skin, and is an ingredient found in many skincare products. HA fillers provide instant results and typically last 12-24 months, depending on the product used and treatment area. Treatment areas include: lips, vertical lines around the mouth, cheeks, temples, undereyes, chin and hands.

Collagen-Based Dermal Fillers
Collagen-based fillers essentially create a support structure or foundation onto which your own natural collagen can develop. The following collagen-based fillers provide instant results and continue to build volume over time.
- Radiesse – FDA approved to provide results lasting for a year or more. Treatment areas: moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, and volume loss on the back of hands.
- Bellafill is the only dermal filler FDA-approved to last 5 years. Treatment areas: Smile lines, and acne scars.
Poly-L-lactic Acid Dermal Volumizer
This treatment is provided in a series of visits, usually 1-3 sessions. The injectable is comprised of poly-l-lactic acid that essentially stimulates your body to produce it’s own collagen. Volume gradually occurs over the course of several months.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable used to gradually replace lost collagen, for results that last up to 2 years. Treatment areas include: smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles and temples.
