Dermal fillers a Nonsurgical enhancement for residents in Orchard Park, New York
Dr. Peter Accetta, a Board-certified dermatologist in Orchard Park, NY, suggests dermal fillers as a minimally invasive, no-downtime alternative to cosmetic surgery.
How wrinkle and lip fillers work
Fillers are gel formulations injected into skin. Their benefit is three-fold:
- The product adds immediate volume.
- Some fillers bind with water, for additional plumping after treatment.
- Introducing filler into skin stimulates your body’s production of collagen for healthier, firmer, skin with more internal hydration.
Face fillers generally have moderate to heavy viscosity. Thicker fillers are placed in deep skin layers, typically on the upper half of the face. They replace volume that is lost as we age, thus recontouring youthful facial features. Medium products are ideal for filling lines and wrinkles and softening deep folds.
Lip injections are administered with thinner, silky-smooth fillers. These products can be used to augment lips, define the shape of the mouth, and smooth fine perioral lines that radiate from lips.
Many options in dermal fillers in Orchard Park, NY
Hyaluronic acid or HA fillers are very popular. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that occurs naturally in the human body. Because each molecule of HA grabs and holds many times its own weight in water, it helps to lubricate joints and keep skin plump with hydration. The HA in these FDA-approved fillers is not animal sourced, so there is low risk of reaction, and results last up to 24 months (depending on the formulation used).
Another type of long-lasting filler contains tiny particles made of calcium hydroxylapatite. We use this filler to replace lost volume on the backs of the hands. After the face, it is the loss of fat and collagen in our hands that reveal our true age. Fortunately, this volume is easily replaced with filler – and with zero down time.

Watch Dr. Accetta use Vobella, a lip filler on this patient at Orchard Park Dermatology!
Vobella – Lip Filler
This is a short video demonstrating the use of Vobella for lip injection. Vobella is a very soft hyaluronic acid product and it is an ideal choice for someone who has never had filler before or has some apprehension about having a filler done. Because it is so soft it is not really a lip plumper it is more of a lip enhancer, and in this case our patient was concerned with a very thin upper lip, but in order to keep things in balance we need to add some filler to the lower lip and we do that first and once we are sure that it is nice and smooth and balanced, then we move to the upper lip – and our goal is to create just a bit more red show without really altering the size or the appearance of her lips.
So our patient is numbed up with some cream and some ice before this, and the Vobella itself as some local anesthetic – built into it so it is not a very uncomfortable procedure, and here are some before and after’s that is just a subtle improvement. Everyone will notice but no one will know!
