Dermal Fillers

In Long Island


Dermal Fillers

As we age, we naturally lose suppleness to our skin as a result of the loss of collagen and elastin. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Seeing an increase in wrinkles and sagging skin can affect our confidence, but it doesn’t have to! By opting for a Dermal Filler treatment, you can give yourself a much-needed boost with a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure. If you are considering Dermal Fillers come and see Dr. Jason Cohn, DO, FACS, at Cohn Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Cohn routinely sees dermal filler patients from all over Nassau County, Suffolk County, Long Island, and even from Manhattan. His boutique office is located in Smithtown, New York, making it a convenient destination for any facial filler patients on the North Shore.

Facial Filler Basics

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.

Made from FDA-approved Hyaluronic Acid (HA), these fillers can be used to help create a smoother and fuller facial appearance, including areas like nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, lips, and even the back of the hands. More than 1 million men and women annually choose this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime.

With a number of dermal filler products to choose from, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you without an experienced cosmetic surgeon’s guidance. Each product is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density, and injection depth, which means that certain fillers work better for certain areas of concern. 

The following is a list of Dermal Filler options Dr. Cohn can provide at our clinic. He will guide you through the process of which one to choose:


Juvederm® is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and facial wrinkles, crow’s feet, thinning lips, and loosening skin. This anti-aging treatment can also “plump up” the lips, sculpt the cheeks and restore a youthful oval shape to the face. It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Because it is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed. Results generally last for two years and can be made to last even longer with follow-up and supplemental treatments.


Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved calcium hydroxylapatite injectable treatment available in the US. As a dermal filler with a viscose consistency that imitates the firmness of connective tissue, Radiesse brings youth back to your features. Recommended for the lower face and back of hands, this firming injectable can last for up to 18 months or even longer in some cases. With immediate results and little downtime required, this treatment helps to stimulate your natural production of elastin and collagen.


Restylane®  is injected deep into the tissue via a fine needle which also contains lidocaine to help you manage any discomfort. This is so that it successfully adds volume to the area to support and smooth the overlying skin. A small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is included in the filler to minimize discomfort during the procedure. The volumizing effects of Restylane last between 6 to 12 months depending on the location of the injection.


Sculptra® is designed to perform subtly and gradually over time, to revitalize your skin and give you a smooth, youthful appearance. In contrast to other fillers, Sculptra works to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. Utilizing poly-L-lactic acid, we work to address the underlying issues of aging skin. Sculptra treatments rebuild lost collagen and give you a more youthful appearance that can last up to two years. Our treatments are fast, safe, and designed to work with most budgets, meaning that you can enjoy the benefits of renewed collagen and revitalize skin for years to come. By increasing collagen production, we can help restore your skin’s inner structure and increase facial volume that has diminished from aging.

What’s the first step?

The first step to getting Dermal Fillers in Long Island is to book a consultation with Dr. Cohn. Our patient coordinators are ready to help you and get you started on your journey. By scheduling a consultation, you will get to meet Dr. Cohn, learn more about what Dermal Fillers involve, and decide whether this is the right procedure for you. 

What to expect on the day of a Dermal Filler treatment

When you are ready for your procedure, a numbing medication will be applied to the treated area to help reduce or eliminate any discomfort from the treatment. Some patients can expect mild discomfort if they are anxious about needles. Your provider will make some strategic marks to help plot your injection points for the filler.

Next, the injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. Pain at the injection site can be tempered by the use of a very cold instrument to chill the skin, anesthetic ointment to numb the skin, or injection of local anesthesia. The injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result is performed, and additional filler is added as needed.

Once the two of you are satisfied, any markings will be cleaned off. You may be offered an ice pack to reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort. Dr. Cohn will have you stick around for 10 – 20 minutes so he can ensure you don’t have any negative reactions to the filler.

Dermal Fillers recovery

The Dermal Filler treatment is very quick and mostly pain-free. There is no downtime needed after you receive the treatment, which means you can resume normal activities right after your appointment. Dr. Cohn recommends his dermal filler patients to avoid strenuous activities within the first 24-48 hours, such as sports or other forms of vigorous exercise, which will minimize swelling and give the filler a chance to set properly. Be sure to discuss your specific recovery plan with Dr. Cohn before scheduling your injections.
