Dermal Filler Services at New Star Med Spa

A full facial contour is considered an enviable symbol of youth. Here at New Star Med Spa, we can do absolutely amazing things with fillers in restoring the contours and natural volume of an aging face. Your facial features need adequate volume to avoid that drawn and sunken appearance. Our goal is to help you achieve a much younger look, in the most natural way possible.

What Makes Dermal Fillers Great

  • Long-lasting - most filler injections can last up to 6 months to a year, or even more.
  • Completely natural - hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body
  • Quick application - the injection takes only five to thirty minutes, depending on the area where the fillers will be placed.
  • Pain-free - most patients barely notice the injection and experience only minor discomfort, along with mild swelling or bruising.
  • Quick results - you can see the changes immediately, with complete results seen less than a week after the injection, when the mild swelling dissipates.
Filler treatment

Over the years, we have learned that it's not really about filling lines - it's about lifting and re-inflating the face to make it look younger. Evidence is spot on about the placement of fillers' role in stimulating collagen production, which extends a filler's anti-aging abilities long after it's gone.

We offer a variety of dermal fillers to combat the effects of aging and give you the supple skin that you naturally had in your youth. See what we can do for you; get in touch with us and experience dramatic results.

The Lowdown on Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are often referred to as the "liquid facelift" as it fills out the face and helps restore lost collagen at the same time. They are designed for contouring and balancing your face's profile by smoothing out smile lines and wrinkles, augmenting your cheeks, and adding volume to your lips. This results in an overall beauty enhancement.

New Star Med Spa uses hyaluronic acid-based fillers. This primary ingredient naturally occurs in the joins and the skin. Our aestheticians use Juvederm and Restylane fillers, both of which have been FDA-approved and are guaranteed safe. Your doctor will help you decide which type of filler is best for your needs and expectations.

By injecting fillers on your face, you will experience a wide range of benefits in terms of facial rejuvenation. The youthful "triangle" of your facial shape and the fullness of your cheeks, lips, and mouth area will be restored. The hollows under your eyes, the drooping corners of your mouth, the deep lines and wrinkles - all these will disappear. In some cases, dermal fillers can be used to give you the appearance of an altered nose or a more projected chin, which will save you from having to go through surgical procedures.

After treatment, you will see reduced wrinkles and increased volume almost immediately. The complete results will be seen usually less than a week after injection when any mild swelling dissipates. New Star Med Spa will work with you in developing a treatment plan, as well as schedule follow-up sessions to maintain results.

Enhancing Your Appearance With the "Magic" of Dermal Fillers: Why Get Fillers

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles - your skin produces less collagen and elastin due to aging. Injections are targeted to tackle fine and deep-set lines to make your face look more revitalized. Putting dermal fillers into your cheeks, lips, chin, and the flesh surrounding your eyes will remove frown lines and other wrinkles on a temporary basis.
  • Fills in facial folds - fillers "plump" the area of your skin so that wrinkles and folds will appear smoother. As you age, you lose that skin-plumping protein naturally and fillers help in stimulating the collagen needed to restore the lost facial volume, especially around the mouth area.
  • Plumps up the lips - the gel in the filler shapes and supports the tissues of your lips. There is better control in how much lip volume is applied and injections can be given gradually for a better pace of treatment.
  • Restores lost volume in hollow cheeks and under the eyes - fillers plump up the sunken areas and bring back the facial contours beneath the eyes and upper cheeks. The hyaluronic acid in the filler behaves like a sponge when injected into the skin and expands to fill in the folds. The filler can be dissolved or reduced if you prefer a less pronounced look.
  • Boosts collagen production - injections trigger new collagen growth by stretching fibroblasts, which are cells responsible for secreting collagen proteins. Dermal fillers stimulate fibroblasts to produce more collagen and slow its breakdown. Robust production of collagen results in a smoother contour of the face.

Dermal Fillers VS Botox: Know the Difference

Both dermal fillers and Botulinum toxin are simple procedures done by injection to the target area usually done without anesthesia (or just a local one, if needed).

Botox works by blocking the nerve signals from the targeted muscle, which paralyzes the muscle and then freezes it. When this happens, the wrinkles are reduced and in some cases, completely disappear. Because of this effect on the muscles, Botox is generally used to smooth expression lines, which are dynamic wrinkles. Commonly treated areas include forehead creases, the line between the eyes, crow's feet, and wrinkles formed due to facial expressions, such as smiling.


Dermal fillers do not have the same effect on the muscles that Botox has. Fillers are used to treating static wrinkles, which include those around the mouth and cheeks. These can be used to make lips look fuller and enhance the symmetry of the face. Instead of freezing lines, patients achieve a younger look by getting gaps and lines filled in. 

Most fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and some are proven to stimulate the formation of collagen as well. Botox effects usually last between four to six months, while dermal fillers can last from 6 to 18 months, depending on the composition of the filter used.

Good Candidates for Dermal Fillers

There are no age or gender restrictions when it comes to getting soft tissue fillers, but there are factors that make someone a good candidate for the treatment. Non-smokers are ideal because their bodies can heal faster and they do not make the sucking and squinting motions that smokers do which exacerbate wrinkles and fine lines, which can make the results last longer.

Those with moderate to severe folds or wrinkles will definitely benefit greatly from the injectables, especially those who don't want to undergo plastic surgery. This will target specific problem areas that do not extend to the rest of the face. These problems include sunken cheeks, under-eye circles, and nasolabial folds.


Lastly, those who are in good general health and do not have a history of extreme allergies will have no problem with dermal fillers. Your doctor will go through your medical and allergen history to make sure that the injectable dermal filler is safe for you.

As with any cosmetic treatment, you should have realistic expectations when it comes to results especially if you are close to pr already in middle age. Younger skin will naturally show better results compared to mature skin. This also depends on the severity of your problem areas before treatment.

Popular Facial Areas For Dermal Filler Treatment

Lips - lip enhancement is one of the most popular uses for dermal fillers today, thanks to celebrities who have made bee-stung lips even more attractive. Lip fillers can be controlled and customized to subtly enhance the lips from their natural shape and even out the texture by filling in the lines.

Cheeks - volume loss due to aging is very evident in the cheeks, especially for those who engage in high-impact exercises. Injecting fillers can make the face look energized and restore the volume of your cheeks without the "frozen" look often associated with Botox. It's a facelift minus the traditional surgery.

Forehead lines - by filling in the lines in your face with hyaluronic acid, the static lines are reduced and look smooth even when your face is at rest. This is also another difference with Botox, which paralyzes the muscles temporarily to eliminate wrinkle-causing movements.

Chin - filler treatments can improve your facial side profile and reduce the appearance of a sagging neck, also referred to as "turkey neck." This makes it a non-surgical option to reshape areas in the face not just your chin, but the nose and jawline as well.

Careful Pre-treatment Care

What To Do Before Getting Your Dermal Filler Injection

Two days prior to getting your injectable dermal filler, avoid topical anti-aging products such as Tretinoin, Retinol, Glycolic acid, and Retinoids. Also avoid tweezing, waxing, bleaching, or using hair removal cream on the area to be treated. You can take pain killers by this time, as long as it's approved by your doctor.

Do not take alcoholic beverages and avoid caffeine, foods with high sugar and sodium, spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before your injections.

Let your doctor know if you're pregnant or breastfeeding. Your doctor will have to opt out of giving you treatment since women under these conditions should not be getting injectable filler. You should also come clean about any allergies or if you are suffering from a neurological disorder.

If you are getting lip augmentation, you should avoid taking blood-thinning medications such as aspirin and Ibuprofen one week prior to your appointment. You also have to set aside supplements such as Vitamin E, Gingko Biloba, ginseng, primrose oil, garlic, and St. John's Wort.

Do not schedule invasive procedures two weeks before and after your treatment. These procedures include dental work, tattooing, permanent makeup, and internal device placement.

Safe and Flawless Treatment Procedure: What To Expect

Facial assessment and mapping - your doctor or a specially trained nurse will examine the areas of your face to evaluate your facial appearance and skin tone. She may mark strategic points in your face where augmentation is needed and where injections will go in.

Cleaning and anesthetizing - the areas to be injected on will be cleansed using an antibacterial agent and a cold instrument may be used to chill your skin. She will apply anesthetic ointment or inject local anesthesia to make the skin numb.

Injecting the fillers - the whole process will take as short as 15 minutes or for as long as an hour depending on the number of areas to be treated. It only takes a few moments to inject per site and your doctor will evaluate to see if more fillers have to be added. The procedure is quick and relatively pain-free.

Cleanup and recovery - once the doctor is finished with the injections, your face will be cleansed to remove the markings. At most, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, and some discomfort, which should go away after less than a week. Any redness and swelling will go away usually after 24 hours.

Within the hour after getting your fillers, you can apply an ice pack or painkillers to reduce possible bruises. The doctor will advise you not to scratch, massage, or pick the treated area.

Expert After-treatment Care

  • Mild swelling, bruising, or redness is normal after your procedure. These should disappear after 24-48 hours.
  • While your face is in recovery, avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours and don't move or massage the treated area, unless you get your doctor's approval to do so.
  • Avoid the sun or extensive heat for 72 hours
  • Stay away from too much salty food and alcoholic beverages in order to avoid excessive swelling. You can apply a cold compress on the swollen area for 15 minutes each hour.
  • Taking Tylenol or Arnica to ease discomfort and bruising.
  • If you have lip injections, avoid intense heat on the treated areas until the swelling and redness go away. Avoid tanning, sunbathing, going into hot tubs, or getting a hot wax.
  • Your doctor may prescribe an antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Claritin for you to take during the day, and Benadryl at night.
  • Avoid using topical products such as Retinols, Vitamin C, and AHA on the treated areas for 24 hours. Stay away from oil-based makeup as well.
  • Side effects are rare, but if you ever see blanching on the treated areas, discolored patches on untreated areas, or if you experience fever, chills, and increasing pain, contact us immediately.

We Use Only the Best Dermal Filler Products in the Market

New Star Med Spa uses only FDA-approved dermal fillers for our patients. We will help you choose the best type of filler for your skin problem and guide you on the expected results. Fillers are categorized according to the substance they contain.

  • Hyaluronic acid - this naturally-occurring substance in the body helps cells in retaining moisture to make your skin look more hydrated, plump, and younger. It has antioxidant properties that shield the skin against pollution and other free radicals. This soft and gel-type filler is great for any skin type, even for those with acne-prone or sensitive skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers include Juvéderm, Restylane, and Belotero Balance.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite - this is another natural substance and can be found in our bones. It has a thicker consistency than hyaluronic acid fillers, which makes them last longer (typically for 12 months). It also stimulates natural collagen production, which is responsible for our skin's structure and firmness. Calcium Hydroxylapatite is best used on moderate to severe facial lines and folds. The most popular filler of this type is Radiesse.
  • Poly-L-Lactic Acid - this may be a synthetic substance, but it's biocompatible and biodegradable. The products under this filler type are considered collagen stimulators, which stimulate the body to produce its own collagen. This filler is typically used for intense facial wrinkles and for correcting volume loss. Results can last for two years. Sculptra is one of the FDA-approved Poly-L-lactic acid fillers.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How Will I Know Which Dermal Filler Is Right for Me?

It can be tricky to choose the best option given that there are so many facial filler options in the market. This is why your doctor will help you decide which type of dermal filler is right for your needs and desired results. This heavily depends on the area you need to fix.

For instance, nasolabial folds are best treated with Belotero, Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvederm dermal filler. Smoothing lines under the eyes and tear troughs are treated better with Juvéderm, Restylane, and fat injections. Lifting and enhancing the cheeks is a job for Restylane, Lyft, and Voluma. These are just common examples though - you should still seek the guidance of your doctor before you decide.

2. Will I Look Natural?

A good doctor is a must in order to get natural-looking results from your dermal fillers. Expertise in placing the filler is key. Sensible dermatologists will always recommend going easy in the fillers and not overdo them. Gradual results over time are preferred, especially when it comes to lip fillers. A conservative approach to fillers will yield a more natural-looking face.

3. How Long Will the Results Last?

How well your facial filler will hold up depends on a handful of factors, such as the area of treatment and the type of filler used. In general, the denser the composition of the filler and the deeper the injection is, the longer it will last. First-time patients are often recommended to try hyaluronic acid fillers because they tend to be the most temporary, which is around 6 to 18 months.

A lip filler will wear out faster than fillers on nasolabial folds. Longer-lasting fillers such as the synthetic ones are more apt for patients who are more committed to the results and should be done by a more experienced doctor.

4. Can Dermal Fillers Be Used With Other Treatments?

Fillers can be combined with Botox and laser treatments such as Fraxel and Thermage for a more enhanced facial rejuvenation. Dermal fillers are commonly used after Botox injections to prolong the effects of both treatments.

5. Can Dermal Fillers Be Removed?

Hyaluronic acid fillers can dissolve quickly with the use of an enzyme known as hyaluronidase. It disperses the hyaluronic acid and makes the natural breakdown of the dermal filler quicker.

6. What is the difference between Restylane and Juvederm dermal filler?

Both fillers are FDA-approved and use hyaluronic acid gels as bases. Juvederm has a smooth, gel-like texture while Restylane is a bit more granular. Results will vary depending on where these fillers are injected. Juvederm is labeled as lasting from 9 to 12 months while Restylane typically holds up from between 6 to 9 months.

7. Is it Painful?

As long as you have an experienced doctor doing the injectable treatment, you don't have to worry about pain during the procedure. The filler itself contains a local anesthetic and injections take only 15-30 minutes. The results are immediate and you can go straight back to work after application. At the most, you will only experience mild discomfort, which should go away quickly.

8. How Much Will Facial Fillers Cost Me?

How much you have to spend will depend on the rates of your doctor, the number of facial fillers needed for your session, and areas that need to be treated. You will need more than one session in order to maintain the results, so you need to factor that in as well. New Star Med Spa will formulate a treatment plan for you and advise you on the costs, honest and straightforward. We offer competitive prices and the treatments will be carried out by trusted professionals.

9. Is There Anything I Should Avoid After Fillers?

Avoid touching the treated areas right after your treatment, because constant touching can lead to infections or interfere with the filler placement. Stay away from heat and alcohol for the first couple of days and wait until a week or two before getting other aesthetic treatment.

10. Are Patients Typically Satisfied With the Results?

Yes, as long as they are not expecting results that are similar to a surgical procedure. Facial fillers are an example of non-surgical treatment for the face and can't replace plastic surgery. But it is proven to improve your appearance with the right maintenance. Fillers last for a year at most (depending on the kind of fillers used) and in order to maintain the effects, you need to have more injections at a gradual pace.

11. What Happens to Fillers as They Break Down Within the Body?

We use facial fillers that are biocompatible, which means they will not harm your body in any way. Popular fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane, and Belotero Balance are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid, which mimics a naturally occurring substance in your body. These ingredients will break down gradually and get eliminated from your body within several months, which is part of the normal metabolic process.

12. Are There Any After-Care Instructions?

After injecting your face with fillers, your doctor will go through the after-care needed in order to maximize the effects and avoid side effects, even if they are just remote possibilities. You can resume your normal activities after your appointment - you can return to work or drive yourself home with no problem.

Don't panic if you see slight redness on your face - this is normal and you can just put light makeup on it if you want to cover it up. Remember that what you see right after are not the full results. Your face will gradually improve for the next two weeks and then you will see the final result.

Avoid extreme heat, such as sunbathing and sunbeds, for two weeks after treatment, as well as intense cold.

13. How Do I Find the Best Doctor for the Job?

Make sure that the one who will do the injections is qualified and experienced. Some areas allow nurses to do the injection and some allow them only with the direct supervision of a doctor. Your doctor should also have the knowledge to spot signs of complications and know what action to take when it happens. Your doctor should be patient in explaining how the process works and is honest and straightforward about the costs and results.
