Dermal Fillers

Conveniently Located to serve Rutherford, Verona, Bergen and Essex Counties

As we age, our skin loses its youthful fullness. Fillers offered by Geria Dermatology help to restore volume to the face, lips, and hands.

Fillers are popular for several reasons. Patients like that they can return to everyday activities immediately after getting most fillers. They like the immediate results that many types of fillers deliver. Patients also like that they can get this treatment during a quick office visit.


Fillers are extremely popular. To help you decide whether this treatment is right for you and to have the treatment performed safely, the American Academy of Dermatology provides the following tips:

If you decide that fillers are right for you, it is important to know that injecting a filler is a medical procedure.

Having a filler injected in a non-medical setting can be very dangerous. To protect your health, you should never get a filler injected at a:

  • Non-medical spa.
  • Party.
  • Salon.
  • Someone’s home.

The results you see depend largely on the experience of the person performing this procedure. A dermatologist has the knowledge and experience required to inject fillers safely and effectively.



Everything from patient sign up to checkout was handled smoothly. Dr Geria is very knowledgeable and experienced doctor. I’d definitely recommend him.

After spending many years going to different doctors , I can finally say that I have found a dermatologist who really cares for his patients and takes time to answer your concerns. He is truly an expert in his field and both he and his staff do a remarkable job.

With a number of fillers now available, we can diminish signs of aging that appear on the face, lips, and hands. Fillers can effectively:

  • Restore fullness to cheeks, hollow areas under the eyes, and deep creases.
  • Diminish scars.
  • Erase fine lines.
  • Plump lips.
  • Lift a downturned mouth.
  • Rejuvenate hands.


Restylane – Restylane is a hyaluronic-acid-based injectable and is more of a generalized filler, meaning it can be used for a variety of purposes. It can smooth away facial wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore facial contours.
Lyft – Lyft is a filler in the Restylane range of products. It’s recommended for people with age-related volume loss in the backs of the hands, the cheeks, and other parts of the midface.
Defyne – Restylane Defyne is an effective treatment for deeper wrinkles around the mouth and nose. It is also specialized for correction of a mildly or moderately recessed chin.
Refyne – Restylane Refyne is a recommended filler product for treating softer nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It is designed to move well with your tissues for very natural results.
Silk – Restylane Silk was the first lip augmentation filler approved by the Food & Drug Administration. It is also an ideal treatment for perioral lip lines, also called lipstick lines or smoker’s lines.
Juvederm – Juvederm, similar to Restylane, is another hyaluronic acid-based generalized dermal filler meant for improving signs of aging, restoring facial contours, and augmenting the lips. It was approved by the FDA in 2006.
Voluma – Juvederm Voluma is a filler from Allergan’s VyCross range of products. As part of the aging process, the cheeks often become gaunt and hollow. This dense gel is specifically designed to restore volume to gaunt cheeks.
Vollure – Juvederm Vollure, another volume filler from Allergan’s VyCross line, is less dense than Voluma. It can be placed deeply or superficially depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals. It is often used for treating harsh age lines like the nasolabial folds.
Volbella – Juvederm Volbella is a popular lip filler used to restore shape and volume to thin lips, creating an appealing pout. This lip-enhancing dermal filler can also smooth away perioral lip lines.
Juvederm XC – Similar to Restylane-L and Restylane, Juvederm XC addresses the same issues as basic Juvederm but also contains lidocaine for numbing.
Belotero – Belotero is an injectable HA filler that reduces the appearance of moderate and deep facial folds and wrinkles like parentheses lines, marionette lines, and the nasolabial folds. This gel filler is made using a Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM), which allows it to be very smooth and flexible.
Radiesse – Radiesse is a dermal filler used to restore volume to hollow regions of the face like the temples and jawline, smooth away age lines, and rejuvenate the backs of the hands. It is composed of CaHA (calcium hydroxylapatite) microspheres suspended in a carboxymethylcellulose gel solution. The microspheres create immediate structure in the skin tissues, and new tissues grow between them for improved volume.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

The best candidates for a dermal filler treatment are individuals who prefer non-surgical treatments for signs and symptoms of skin aging. Patients with facial volume loss and moderate or harsh wrinkles are excellent candidates for fillers.

Active infections on or near the injection sites must be fully treated before undergoing a dermal filler treatment. To learn more about possible hypersensitivity to the product, it is best to schedule a consultation.

Which Dermal Filler Is Right for Me?

Each dermal filler product is based on a variety of products. Some are based on hyaluronic acid, while others are based on calcium hydroxylapatite. Before a dermal filler brand can be recommended to you, it will be necessary to discuss your appearance goals during a consultation.

The types of age lines and wrinkles present will be identified during the consultation. You will also be asked about your complete medical history to ensure that the treatment will be effective and safe for your overall health.

We will then give you an overview of the treatment plan process and provide special instructions to help you prepare for your appointment.

How to Prepare for a Dermal Filler Treatment:

Before your dermal filler treatment, you will be asked to stop taking anti-inflammatory medications and certain herbal supplements at least a week before your appointment; these may risk excessive swelling or bruising.

It is important to avoid smoking before your dermal filler treatment. You must also stop drinking alcohol at least two days before the session. This will help the dermal filler work its full benefits on a realistic timeline.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when I get a filler?

The procedure varies with the filler your dermatologist will use, the part of the body to be treated, and your medical history. Here are some general guidelines about what you can expect:

Most filler treatments take between 15 and 30 minutes and require one office visit. Before getting the injections, you may need an anesthetic cream applied to the area to be treated

Your dermatologist will inject the filler into the area, often giving you several injections to produce the best results.

You may feel a stinging or burning sensation as the filler is injected.

When will I see results after getting a filler?

This also varies with the filler. Most fillers fill the skin, so they produce immediate — or close to immediate — results. A filler also can stimulate your body to produce collagen, but this takes time.

Most fillers offer immediate results

Will I look natural?

To get natural-looking results, the person injecting the filler must have expertise in placing the filler.

Dermatologists recommend not overdoing fillers. Your results will look more natural with a conservative approach. For example, patients who have very thin lips should not get dramatically fuller lips. Creating fuller lips in these patients could be extremely unflattering because the lips might start to resemble a duck’s bill.

How long do fillers last?

Most fillers offer temporary results and require repeat treatments to maintain the results. Temporary fillers offer one key advantage. These can be injected as needed to replace lost fullness. This is advantageous because no matter what we do, our skin continues to age.

What are the possible side effects?

After receiving filler injections, some patients have minor, temporary side effects where they were injected. You may have:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Bruising (occasionally)

These side effects tend to clear within 7 to 14 days — if not earlier.

Serious side effects are more likely when the person injecting the filler does not have adequate medical training and experience. To protect your health, you should never get filler injections in a non-medical setting, such as non-medical spa, salon, or someone’s home.

When fillers are injected in a non-medical setting or by an inexperienced provider, reports of more serious side effects increase dramatically. These side effects include:

  • Lumps.
  • Ridges.
  • Over-filled areas.
  • Allergic reaction.
  • Skin discoloration.
  • Infection.
  • Severe swelling.

✨ @drgeria was recently featured in the article by @livestrong_com where he shared his opinion on the use of dry shampoo.

👎Dry shampoo can be a convenient hair care product, its frequent and improper use may have some potential drawbacks.

🫧It should not replace regular hair washing entirely, as it doesn`t cleanse the scalp as effectively as traditional shampoo and water.

👉Overuse of dry shampoo can lead to product buildup, clogged hair follicles, and a dry scalp.

❗️Dr. Geria recommends using dry shampoo sparingly and recommends washing your hair regularly to maintain scalp health and prevent potential issues.

✨Strengthens existing hair.

❓Did you know?

👉Consuming a diet that is rich in sugar and heavily processed foods can potentially have a significant impact on skin health and lead to the development of skin inflammation.

👎Processed foods often contain high levels of refined sugars, which can cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels. This triggers the release of insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar, but can also have pro-inflammatory effects.

🙅‍♀️Chronic consumption of excessive sugars and processed carbohydrates may contribute to a state of chronic inflammation, which is believed to be a contributing factor to the exacerbation of skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

🥦In contrast, opting for a diet rich in whole, nutrient-dense foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats, provides the body with the necessary building blocks for healthy skin.

👍These foods supply essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can support the skin`s natural defense mechanisms and minimize the risk of inflammation-related skin issues.

✨Therefore, making mindful dietary choices can contribute to maintaining clear, vibrant, and healthy skin.
