Facial Rejuvenation

Dermal Fillers Ithaca, New York

Dermal fillers are an excellent choice for patients who want to use more than just anti-aging skincare to target the signs of aging. If you’re ready to add a dermal filler to your anti-aging routine, we can help you choose the right one. At Ferrer & Monaghan Vein and Aesthetic Center, located in Horseheads and Ithaca, NY, we can use these specially formulated fillers to address your problem areas and help you achieve subtle yet noticeable results.

Dermal Fillers

Facial Rejuvenation
When it comes to dermal fillers, variety is key. For that reason, we offer several different dermal filler collections and formulas with unique ingredients to meet the needs of our patients. Our hyaluronic acid-based fillers will inject immediate volume into different areas of the face. We only use as much filler as you need to address hollow areas, lines, and wrinkles of different severity and areas that need added volume for feature enhancement or to combat aging. Our collagen-stimulating fillers, also known as biostimulators, are unique in that, unlike hyaluronic acid-based fillers, they don’t inject immediate volume into the skin but instead stimulate natural collagen production.

The Treatment Process

At your consultation, the physician will discuss your goals and expectations.  After an assessment, she will devise a personalized treatment plan for you with a thorough discussion of the recommended filler.  The treatment typically takes 30 – 60 minutes.  The area that is being treated will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent.  The physician will make a series of marks and apply numbing as needed.  The number of injections will depend on the area being treated and the amount of filler being used.  When the treatment is complete, all the marks will be removed, ointment will be applied, and the application of ice will be used if necessary.  There is typically minimal downtime with filler injections. Further discharge instructions will be provided at the time of treatment.

The Juvederm Collection

The Juvederm collection is a popular choice for patients who want a versatile approach to aging. These fillers can target volume loss on several different areas of the face, and the results are immediate and long-lasting and look completely natural.

Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler designed to add volume to the cheeks. With the aging process comes the inevitable flattening of the cheeks, but with Voluma, we can re-inject volume into the area, and the results will last approximately two years. We can also use Voluma to improve the appearance of the chin profile; post-treatment, results will last up to one year.


Juvederm Ultra is a lip filler that can restore volume to the lips that the aging process has stolen or augment the lips of those who want to improve their aesthetic appearance. Results last up to one year.


Volbella is another popular lip filler from this collection that can restore or add volume to the lips for aging or aesthetic purposes and smooth lines around the mouth. Post-treatment results last up to one year.

The Restylane Collection

Like the Juvederm collection, the Restylane Collection is versatile and includes different fillers that can target aging on different face areas.

Kysse is a popular lip filler from this family of fillers. It uses XpresHAn technology to add natural volume to lips while helping patients maintain flexibility and the ability to express themselves normally. It also improves the color and texture of the lips and lasts up to one year.


Silk is a filler from this product line that also improves the appearance of the lips. It adds volume to thinning lips as well as naturally thinner lips. It also can be used to smooth vertical lip lines around the mouth. Results will last six to 12 months post-treatment.


Refyne is a hyaluronic acid formula designed to smooth laugh lines. Injections into areas around the mouth can smooth laugh lines while helping patients maintain natural flexibility and movement. Results can last a year or longer.


Defyne is designed to treat deeper, more severe laugh lines, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Patients with more advanced signs of aging can use this filler to restore youth to their face and enjoy results for over one year.


Lyft is a filler from this collection that can treat the face and the hands. It can add volume to the cheeks to address sagging, drooping, and general volume loss. It can also be injected into the hands to create a more youthful-looking appearance. Results can last six months in the hands and 12 months in the cheeks.


Restylane is the original filler from this collection that treats facial wrinkles, folds, and lines around the mouth of different severities, including nasolabial folds. We can also inject it into the lips to add natural volume; the results can last 18 months or longer.


Contour is a cheek filler from this collection that can add or restore definition to the cheats. It delivers natural-looking results and contours the entire face, and results can last a year or longer.

Biostimulators: Collagen-Stimulating Injectables

Biostimulators are unique dermal fillers that stimulate natural collagen production in the treatment area. They contain active ingredients that help create a stronger foundation in the deeper layers by increasing collagen and elastin growth when injected into the skin. As your body produces increased amounts of collagen and elastin, lines and wrinkles will soften, facial folds will become smoother, and hollow areas will have increased volume. Results take several weeks to become noticeable, but once they appear, they can last for several years. Follow-up treatments with bio-stimulators will continue to promote increased collagen and elastin production and help you combat aging long-term.

Radiesse is a biostimulator that contains calcium hydroxyapatite, also known as CaHA microspheres. When this gel formula is injected into the skin, the microspheres create a scaffolding for new collagen growth. The body responds to the treatment by growing new collagen and elastin. Radiesse treats some of the most common signs of aging on the face, including smile lines, nasolabial folds, and other facial lines and folds on the lower half of the face.

We can also contour the jawline and add volume to the back of the hands with Radiesse to hide some common signs of aging, including visible tendons, veins, and bones. You will see some immediate and gradual results as your body produces more collagen, and your results can last up to one year or longer.


Sculptra is also a biostimulator. Like Radiesse, it promotes increased collagen and elastin growth in the deeper layers of the skin. Its active ingredient, L-poly-lactic acid, targets some of the most common signs of aging, including chin wrinkles, smile lines, and marionette lines. Results can last over two years.
