Facial Fillers

Facial fillers, also known as “facial injectables,” are a non­invasive solution to treating lines, wrinkles, and creases. Dr. Douglas Taranow, a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, offers multiple types of fillers at his New York City practice.

Types of Fillers


JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a non-animal, biodegradable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the skin. This is the ideal treatment for patients looking to restore lost volume in the cheeks. By lifting and contouring the midface, you can achieve age-reversing results that are proven to last one to two years. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC builds upon itself, and patients require less product during repeat treatments.

Juvéderm® ­

Rejuvenating the facial skin and lifting the underlying tissues, Juvéderm is also made of a non­-animal biodegradable gel composed of hyaluronic acid. It is effective in smoothing out creases on the cheeks and around the mouth (“marionette lines”) as well as plumping the lips. The effects of Juvéderm usually last six to nine months. Juvéderm is also offered with a numbing agent (Lidocaine) added into the material to decrease discomfort during injection.

Radiesse® ­

This volumizing filler is made of calcium­based microspheres (a naturally occurring substance in the body). The filler acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own collagen to grow. This natural collagen continues to grow for several months, which extends the effect of the injection. In many patients, the filler lasts for a year or more.

*Facial fillers are often combined with Botox® injections to provide lasting and beneficial results.

The Procedure

After Dr. Taranow assesses your facial appearance to determine which areas would most benefit from facial filler treatment, the injection site will be cleaned and a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the area. The injections are administered in just a few minutes.


The results of facial fillers are noticeable immediately, and no downtime is required. Some swelling and bruising may be apparent but should resolve within a few days. Most patients achieve their desired look after just one treatment, and touch­-up treatments are recommended to maintain your rejuvenated appearance. Although complications from fillers are rare, patients should be advised that there are certain risks associated with facial fillers, including: acne, bruising, itching, infection, redness, skin rash, and temporary numbness. It is best to follow Dr. Taranow’s instructions to ensure the most beneficial results.
