Why should I choose Dr. Stella for filler treatments?

Dr. Stella Desyatnikova is skilled and experienced at performing soft tissue filler injections and has a great artistic eye for giving you the best results. She has advanced training in facial plastic surgery and is board certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. She is also on the teaching faculty for Allergan, Medicis, and Palette aesthetic courses and has been training other doctors and nurses how to administer fillers for years, serving as an authority on the best and most effective ways to improve facial appearance.

Which fillers do you offer?

Dr. Stella offers the following fillers, each with unique benefits and made without animal products:

  • JUVÉDREM® Ultra XC & JUVÉDREM® Ultra Plus XC contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural substance in the body that gives the skin volume and fullness. This versatile filler is used for fine lines, deeper facial folds, and the lips. Results can last up to 1 year.
  • JUVÉDREM VOLUMA XC is an HA filler that restores volume to the entire cheek area for a natural-looking lift of the midface and can be used for creating better balanced cheekbones, chin, and jawline. It contains lidocaine for enhanced comfort during treatments. Results can last up to 2 years.
  • JUVÉDREM VOLLURE XC is a great option for superficial and deep lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, especially the nasolabial folds (sometimes called the "parentheses"), and for lip augmentation. Its results can last for up to 18 months.
  • JUVÉDREM VOLBELLA XC is intended for the correction of superficial lines and adding subtle volume and definition to the lips, to add fullness and smooth the lines that can develop around them. Formulated to add subtle and natural-looking changes, VOLBELLA is a soft HA filler that creates very natural-looking results for attractive, younger-looking, and well-defined lips.
  • Restylane® is an HA filler that can be used for correction of dark circles and hollowness under the eyes and is commonly used for nonsurgical rhinoplasty.
  • Restylane® Lyft, formerly known as Perlane®, uses larger particles of hyaluronic acid for more dramatic improvement of deep lines and creases. It's also appropriate for adding volume to areas such as the chin and cheeks, and its results can last for up to 1 year.
  • Restylane® Silk adds volume and shape to the lips. It's FDA-approved for patients 21 and older. Its smooth, soft formulation also makes it a good choice for small, fine lines around the mouth.
  • RADIESSE can be used to lift the midface, add volume to the cheeks and chin area, and correct deeper smile lines and marionette lines. It differs from HA fillers because it contains tiny particles of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a substance found in the teeth and bones, which help increase the production of a patient's own collagen over time. Results can last up to 1 year.

During your consultation, Dr. Stella will ask you to describe the changes you'd like to make and develop a personalized treatment plan that will give you the most satisfying results. She may suggest a combination of filler treatments, another non-surgical option, or facial plastic surgery. Visit Dr. Stella's Injectable Fillers FAQ for more information.

What are filler treatments like?

Injectable filler treatments are performed in our office and are usually complete in 30 minutes. For enhanced comfort, patients can choose to have a topical anesthetic applied before the treatment begins. Dr. Stella then uses a fine needle to inject the filler beneath the area being addressed. Because the results are immediate, Dr. Stella will talk with you throughout the treatment to ensure you attain the look you want.

Can filler treatments be used instead of surgery?

Many people are not ready for surgery but still want to look younger or improve their facial features. Dr. Stella can provide results that are similar to many cosmetic surgery procedures, such as in nonsurgical rhinoplasty, with injectable fillers. She has extensive experience using fillers to take the place of a variety of surgical procedures including those listed in the table below.

Instead of: Dr. Stella Can Use Fillers to:
Rhinoplasty Define the bridge of the nose to make it look narrower or even out a hump or bump
Sculpt the tip of the nose to make nostrils look smaller or smooth an overly upturned nose
Lower eyelid surgery Fill out sunken tear troughs and reduce under-eye bags
Cheek lift Make the cheeks look rounder and more youthful and give a slight lift to sagging jowls
Lip implants Sculpt and plump up thin or flattened lips
