Dermal fillers can be injected to smooth wrinkles, lines, and folds, increase cheek and lip volume, or resolve other facial issues. Dr. Pontell provides a range of some of the best dermal fillers Philadelphia has to offer for facial enhancement, and can assist you to appear younger, more attractive, and create a more appealing facial balance with the appropriate filler, injected to create a very natural look.
Beauty isn’t only skin deep, but having healthy, radiant skin can help you feel more confident and youthful. Sun exposure, pollution, smoking, poor diet, and the natural aging process all wreak havoc on your complexion, which can leave it dull and damaged. These, in turn, can cause you to unintentionally show your age through facial wrinkles, fine lines, and hollows. Injectable facial rejuvenation techniques can be utilized to erase these signs of aging and restore a bright and vibrant complexion.
Facial Rejuvenation With Dermal Fillers
As people age, sun damage, pollution, and other factors can cause wrinkles and lines to appear around the mouth, eyes, and forehead. For some people, these visible signs of aging can rob them of confidence and cause feelings of self-consciousness.
Although facial cosmetic surgery procedures—such as a facelift—reduce wrinkles and tighten skin, some people are not comfortable undergoing invasive surgery. Professional skin care treatments may also improve the texture of the skin, but they must be maintained on a daily basis over a long period of time, which can be expensive.
At the Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery Center, Inc., Dr. Jonathan Pontell gives his patients easy access to exceptional skin treatments such as our facial fillers in Main Line: Restylane, Restylane Lyft and Juvederm and Voluma. At our Wayne, Pennsylvania cosmetic surgery office near Delaware and South New Jersey, we want our patients to have all the available options for enhancing their appearance.

Benefits of Injectable Facial Rejuvenation
Injectable facial rejuvenation offers a quick and effective method of achieving a refreshed appearance. They are able to restore volume, minimize wrinkles, and reinvigorate thinning lips. Some products, like BOTOX® Cosmetic, can even help prevent fine lines and wrinkles on the face. In some cases, injectables may also be used to increase the prominence of the cheeks and lips.
Fast Results With No Downtime
Since injectable facial rejuvenation requires no surgery, there is no significant pain or recovery period. Many of the injectables can provide dramatic results that last up to 24 months. Since there is no surgery, there are no anesthesia risks and the likelihood of infection is extremely low.
Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, and other dermal fillers in Philadelphia administered by Dr. Jonathan Pontell can restore volume and fullness to the face and lips while hiding wrinkles. Injections in the nasolabial folds, around the eyes, or in the cheeks can also reduce deep furrows and restore vitality to the face. Such dermal fillers are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid that is identical to the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the body. Water molecules bind to the hyaluronic acid molecules to prolong the effects of the treatment for longer-lasting results.
Over time, fewer injections may be needed to maintain the effect. Dermal fillers have been used in more than 4 million treatments in 70 countries, and injections at our Wayne, Pennsylvania office near Delaware can help patients smooth wrinkles and improve the overall aesthetics of the face.
Cheek And Jawline Volume Replacement
Voluma and Restylane® Lyft are both hyaluronic acid fillers that are meant for deeper volume replacement in the cheeks and along the jawline. A fuller cheek is more youthful then a flatter cheek that is seen with aging. By filling in the pre-jowl sulcus (the area in front of the jowl), the jawline will appear tightened and lifted. These fillers can make dramatic improvements in rejuvenating faces with minimal downtime.
During your consultation for facial fillers in Main Line, Dr. Pontell will speak with you about your aesthetic goals and make a recommendation regarding which treatments are best for your specific conditions and needs.
Since the procedures are done entirely through injectable methods, there is no scarring in the treated area, which means that you get to enjoy the benefits of a more youthful appearance without any of the downtime needed after surgical options.
There is minimal recovery after a dermal filler procedure, which means there is no need for pain medications, time off work, or a disturbance of other routine activities. However, it is common to experience some mild redness as well as black and blue or swelling at the injection site following the procedure, but this should resolve quickly. Black and blue can be minimized by avoiding aspirin, Motrin, Alleve and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory type medications for 12 days before the procedure.
Compared to surgical methods of facial rejuvenation, the pain associated with injectable options is inconsequential. The peak of the pain is the when the treatment is being injected into the skin, but the majority of patients have little to no reaction to the pain level. Numbing ointment is used for injectable treatment.
