What are Facial Fillers at Troy Laser Center?
Facial fillers are yet another type of non-surgical cosmetic procedure with a minimum downtime, addressing facial conditions due to natural aging process.
As we age, our faces naturally lose the underlying fat and the skin starts to stretch out, resulting in not just deeper wrinkles and folds, but sunken and hollow appearance. FDA-approved dermal fillers injected into the cheeks , smiling lines, or marionette lines help to diminish facial lines and folds and restore volume and fullness to the face. Facial fillers can also be used as lip injections to plump thin lips and smooth away vertical lip lines. Results from facial fillers vary, depending on the type of filler used, the facial area to be treated, and, of course, the skill of the injecting physician.
Dermal fillers at Troy Laser Center are administered exclusively by board-certified physician Dr. Kenneth Wolok, who comes with 15 years of hands-on experience in injecting a wide-range of facial fillers, to include the whole portfolio of Juvederm- Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Vollure.

What it treats
Fillers treat and temporarily smooth away:
- Juvederm Ultra Plus for the correction of moderate to severe smiling lines (aka parenthesis), marionette lines, and fuller and plumper lips
- Juvederm Voluma for the correction of sunken and hollow cheeks (aka non-surgical cheek lift) and chin volume
- Juvederm Vollure for the correction of moderate to severe smiling lines (aka parenthesis) and marionette lines
- Juvederm Volbella for the correction of vertical lip lines (aka pucker lines) and subtle lip volume
The filler is administered by injection into the specific facial areas. Prior to the actual filler injection, a topical and an injectable numbing solution is used for additional patient comfort. Depending on the facial areas being treated and the amount of filler required for an optimum outcome, the procedure itself can take anywhere from 20-30 minutes.
Recovery time & side effects
The Juvederm family of injectable facial fillers comes with minimal recovery. The most common and temporary side effects are swelling and bruising at the injection side, lasting, on average, 3 to 4 days, with the possibility of lasting up to 7 days. Certain medications and health conditions can possibly worsen the swelling and/or bruising; our aesthetician will discuss any of the pre-existing conditions and provide pre- and post-treatment recommendations during the initial complimentary cosmetic consultation.
Results from injectable fillers vary depending on the actual depth of the facial lines and folds, the amount of filler injected,and the patient’s age among other factors. Results from injectable fillers are instant; the Juvederm family of fillers does not get better with time, however, Troy Laser Center recommends for patients to wait full 2 weeks for a final assessment . The longevity of the filler also will very per individual case and the type of a filler being injected: Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Volbella provide correction lasting up to 1 year, while Juvederm Vollure offers correction lasting up to 18 months, and finally the long-lasting Juvederm Voluma provides up to 2 years of correction.
Here’s how your facial filler treatment will work.
How do Facial Fillers Work and What To Expect During My Visit at Troy Laser Center?
The Juvederm family of fillers is based on an injectable hyaluronic acid gel ( a sugar molecule naturally occuring in human skin) approved by the FDA to temporarily volumize cheeks, fill in and smooth away smiling and marionette lines, smooth away vertical lip lines, volumize and plump up lips, and add volume to sunken and hollow cheeks.
During the initial complimentary cosmetic consultation, our cosmetic physician evaluates the patient's facial anatomy and structure as well as patient's expectations and desires. Based on the outcome, recommendations are made for the filler that will produce the best aesthetic results.
Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring substance, the Juvederm fillers are suitable for just about any patient. Once injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid fills in plumps up wrinkles and folds and volumizes sunken areas. Depending on the areas being injected and the amount of filler needed, the injections take about 20-30 min.
The longevity of the filler also will very per individual case and the type of a filler being injected: Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Volbella provide correction lasting up to 1 year, while Juvederm Vollure offers correction lasting up to 18 months, and finally the long-lasting Juvederm Voluma provides up to 2 years of correction.
