What are dermal fillers?

As we age, the skin slowly loses its supply of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acids. These compounds are what give youthful complexions their resilience, suppleness, and radiant glow. Once they are depleted, the facial contours may appear hollow, and wrinkles may form as the underlying structural support for the skin begins to weaken.

Dermal fillers can help combat the signs of aging, including a loss of definition in the jawline, lines and creases around the nose and mouth, bags and dark circles under the eyes, thinning lips, and diminishing fat volume in the cheeks and temples. With cosmetic fillers in NYC, there is no recovery period. Patients can simply return to their normal schedules directly after their sessions.

What cosmetic fillers are offered in NYC at Alinea Medical Spa?


Juvederm is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a compound that binds with water molecules to plump, hydrate, and revive the complexion. Juvederm products can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic issues, from deflated lips to midface volume loss.


Restylane products contain a form of HA that mimics the hyaluronic acid found naturally in the skin. Once injected, Restylane helps improve the appearance of lines, folds, and wrinkles, restoring a firm, attractive complexion. Restylane sessions take less than 30 minutes, and results are typically visible right away.

Liquid facelift

A liquid facelift is performed using a combination of dermal fillers and injectables to provide many of the same improvements achieved with a surgical procedure, minus the incisions, anesthesia risks, scarring, and lengthy recovery time. The procedure can be customized to your unique needs and goals.

Lip augmentation

Lip fillers can help combat age-related volume loss, correct lip asymmetry, smooth vertical lip lines, and restore a youthful and engaging smile. While it’s common to be concerned about over-filling, our experienced practitioners provide subtle, natural-looking changes that boost your confidence rather than undermining it.

    Who makes a good candidate for dermal filler treatment?

    Most dermal fillers have little risk of allergic reaction, so almost everyone is a good candidate, provided they are healthy, and they have realistic expectations for their results. We will meet with you for a private consultation to determine the best approach for achieving your cosmetic goals. Our team can create a customized treatment plan using dermal fillers in New York that address your unique trouble spots.

    What happens after my dermal filler session?

    With dermal fillers, there is no downtime or recovery period to contend with. You will be able to return to school, work, or leisure right away. For this reason, dermal fillers are often considered “lunchtime” procedures since they take less than 30 minutes to perform. Minor swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site is common side effects, but these are no cause for alarm. Symptoms typically disappear within a matter of hours or by the next day. You can wear makeup to camouflage any discoloration.
