Dermal Fillers & Cosmetic Injectables

Dermal fillers in Atlanta can smooth wrinkles and add natural-looking volume to facial features without the downtime and recovery associated with traditional facial surgery. Some patients aren’t able to take extended downtime required after undergoing facial rejuvenation surgery. Cosmetic injections have become one of the most popular aesthetic treatments due to their quickness and convenience. Astra Plastic Surgery offers a variety of cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers in Atlanta to restore a youthful-looking facial profile.

What Are Dermal Fillers & Cosmetic Injectables?

Dermal fillers are one of the fastest growing cosmetic treatments in facial rejuvenation. In the past, if you wanted to get rid of facial wrinkles and sagging skin, facial surgery was the only solution. Today, there are a variety of dermal fillers and injectables that can restore youthfulness to your face without invasive surgery or long recovery times. By definition, a dermal filler is a product that is injected or placed into the dermis. Our cosmetic patients are satisfied to have an immediate correction of wrinkles or scars as a result of cosmetic fillers. Injectables work under the skin to replace elasticity and add volume.

What Are The Benefits of Dermal Fillers & Cosmetic Injectables?

Dermal fillers in Atlanta are highly customizable to meet the unique goals of each patient. As we age, our skin loses volume and elasticity that causes us to look older than we feel. Dermal fillers provide benefits that allow patients to regain a youthful appearance and combat signs of aging. Dermal fillers are a non-invasive approach to facial rejuvenation.

Cosmetic Injectable Options

What Are My Dermal Filler & Cosmetic Injectable Options?

The choice of dermal filler is very important depending on the area that needs to be corrected. The results from most cosmetic injections and fillers are temporary – commonly lasting from a few months to a year depending on the type of facial filler or injectable used. A dermal filler or injectable treatment entails a series of tiny injections under the skin’s surface and the amount administered depends on the depth and size of the skin imperfection or wrinkle. In most cases, additional treatment sessions are encouraged for optimal results.

At Astra Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, we offer numerous cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers, including:

  • Lip Fillers:

    Lip fillers are a minimally invasive alternative to lip augmentation. Lip fillers are a form of cosmetic fillers that are injected to give the lips more volume and definition. Lip fillers are a highly customizable solution to address thinning or poorly defined lips.

    Lip Fillers

  • Botox® Cosmetic:

    Botox® is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic injectables. When injected, Botox® treats what are called “dynamic” wrinkles (wrinkles caused by repetitive movement) by blocking the impulses from specific nerves to specific muscles. Wrinkles form when nerve cells within the muscles release a chemical known as acetylcholine that triggers a muscle contraction. Botox® disrupts the release of acetylcholine, thus paralyzing the muscle and preventing the wrinkles from forming.

    Botox® Cosmetic

  • Dysport®:

    Dysport® is used to limit muscle movement to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. Specifically, Dysport® is used to treat the area between the eyebrows, otherwise known as the glabellar or frown lines. Like Botox®, Dysport® is a type of neurotoxin that relaxes the muscles under the skin. The results of Dysport® are natural-looking.


  • Juvéderm® Voluma®:

    Voluma® is a specially formulated dermal filler that adds fullness to the cheek area for a refreshed and youthful appearance. This hyaluronic acid-based filler uses the Juvéderm® formula to add natural-looking volume to the midface. Voluma® can sculpt fuller, rounder cheeks and improve hollowing without the need for surgery or extended downtime.

    Juvéderm® Voluma®

  • Juvéderm® Volbella®:

    Volbella® utilizes the effective Juvéderm® formula consisting of hyaluronic acid to increase volume in the lips and improve their shape. Its smooth consistency allows for results that are stunningly natural-looking, while providing a versatile treatment that enables patients to achieve the personalized results they are looking for. As an added benefit, Juvéderm® Volbella® can soften the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, providing an additional boost of youthfulness to your profile.

    Juvéderm® Volbella®

  • Juvéderm® Vollure®:

    Vollure® also uses the Juvéderm® formula consisting of hyaluronic acid to treat mild-to-moderate wrinkles and folds in the lower face. This injectable gel is best for treating nasolabial folds and marionette lines, which are wrinkles that commonly form around the mouth and nose. This treatment can help the skin retain moisture and provide youthful-looking volume to your appearance.

    Juvéderm® Vollure®

  • Juvéderm® Ultra:

    Thanks to Juvéderm® Ultra, you can plump and fill out your lips, adding fullness by correcting age-related volume loss. Juvéderm® Ultra is an injectable gel that can address moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. This dermal filler is also injected deep into the lips and perioral area, augmenting the appearance of your lips for a sense of fullness, proportion, balance, and plumpness lasting for up to a year.

    Juvéderm® Ultra

  • Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC:

    Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC uses a smooth consistency gel containing hyaluronic acid and lidocaine, which helps to numb the skin upon injection and reduce any discomfort. During your Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC treatment, the Juvéderm® injectable gel is placed under your skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC can treat marionette lines around your mouth and under your eyes, nasolabial folds, and wrinkles around your lips, while also adding natural-looking fullness to the cheeks.

    Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC

  • Juvéderm® Volux® XC:

    Juvéderm® Volux® XC is specially formulated to target the jawline and provide a more sculpted and chiseled appearance. Because it is intended for use in the jaw area, it has been formulated to have a thicker consistency, providing more prominent, lifted results. If you are displeased with the appearance of your jawline due to slight jowling or loss of volume, Juvéderm® Volux® XC may be right for you.

  • Skinvive™:

    Skinvive™ by Juvéderm® combats dry, dull skin and promotes overall skin health and hydration using hyaluronic acid microdroplets. When injected below the surface of the skin, Skinvive™ by Juvéderm® targets common skin imperfections from their source. Ideal for the cheeks, Skinvive™ by Juvéderm® helps skin to appear glowing and refreshed.


  • Sculptra™:

    Sculptra™ is a dermal filler used to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles. In addition to filling wrinkles and fine lines, Sculptra™ also encourages the production of collagen, allowing patients to achieve a more youthful looking appearance over time. By stimulating collagen production, overall skin quality is improved, and the skin will naturally renew itself over time.


  • Restylane®:

    Restylane® is a dermal filler used to treat moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles. Restylane® is made of hyaluronic acid, a chemical found naturally in the body that works to maintain skin hydration and improves skin elasticity. Restylane® can be used to restore volume to the face, neck, hands, and more.


  • Kybella®:

    Kybella® is an innovative, non-surgical solution to treat double chin. This series of injections can target unwanted fat cells around the chin and neck (known as submental fat). Kybella® is made from deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that assists with the breakdown and absorption of fat. Kybella® can help achieve a slimmer, more youthful jawline and neckline.


Getting Started With Injectables

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Dermal Fillers?

Currently, several dermal fillers are available for use in the United States, in addition to subdermal fillers, or those that are placed underneath the dermis in the subcutis. If you struggle with signs of aging including, but not limited to, sunken cheeks, thinning lips, deep lines around the nose, mouth, or forehead, dermal fillers may be right for you. Candidates for dermal fillers should be in good general health, nonsmokers, and have realistic expectations when it comes to the results that dermal fillers can provide.
