Aesthetic Medical Spa located in Ridgefield, CT & Wallingford, CT

Over the years, your body’s natural hyaluronic acid, the substance that helps your collagen and elastin fibers stay nourished and hydrated, decreases steadily. This leaves you without enough facial support under your skin and causes lines, folds, loose skin, and changing facial contours. Fortunately, Zina Boutaeva, MD, at Novo Medical Aesthetics can restore your facial volume using natural-looking cosmetic dermal fillers. Call the Ridgefield or Wallingford, Connecticut, office, or book your fillers consultation online now.


What are the different types of fillers?

Novo Medical Aesthetics offers a wide range of FDA-approved dermal fillers that can treat facial volume loss where you notice it most:

Lower-face lines and wrinkles

Dermal fillers like Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Restylane Refyne™, and Restylane Defyne™ add volume in lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds around your mouth and nose and marionette lines drooping at mouth corners. 


Restylane Lyft™ and Juvéderm Voluma® are for the mid-face. These fillers are heavier and thicker, with larger molecule sizes than fillers for your lips and wrinkles. 


Restylane and Juvéderm are both great choices for lips, as they have smooth and thin formulas with small molecule sizes. Depending on your needs, these fillers add anything from subtle volume to significant reshaping. Lip fillers can also smooth out smoker’s lines in and around your lips.

Every dermal filler has unique nuances and advantages, and Novo Medical Aesthetics can tailor your filler treatment for your particular needs and goals. If you need volume or enhancement anywhere in your face, from under-eye circles to lips, dermal fillers are a great fit. 

What does dermal filler treatment feel like?

The experienced and trained injection specialists at Novo Medical Aesthetics use the most advanced precision techniques to ensure your comfort. Additionally, you typically get topical numbing cream before the injections. The needles are very thin, and most filler formulas include lidocaine that numbs as it corrects volume. 

When will I see results after my fillers treatment?

Dermal fillers provide instant benefits. In one short appointment at Novo Medical Aesthetics, you can look years younger, more refreshed, and newly revitalized.

How long do fillers last?

Fillers usually last six to 12 months but can last even longer, depending on the formula and the treatment area. 

Are there any side effects of dermal filler treatment?

All injections have certain risks, including minor bruising and swelling. You may also have pinpoint bleeding at the injection sites. Symptoms resolve rapidly. After your filler treatment, you apply ice to minimize swelling, and you can continue that at home. 

Novo Medical Aesthetics recommends that you discontinue blood thinners such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, fish oil, and alcohol in the week prior to your appointment to reduce bruising.
