As we age, we lose volume in the face and start to develop wrinkles around the mouth, forehead, eyes, and other areas.
Facial fillers are an excellent way to restore this volume loss with minimal to no bruising and no downtime! Certain fillers are available “off the shelf” in Miami's ARC Plastic Surgery office, and many of these contain numbing medication.
In addition to the medication within the filler, Dr. Jeremy White uses a specially compounded numbing cream to make your experience comfortable and relaxing. These facial fillers are ideal for softening wrinkles that are present when facial muscles are not activated, which makes them excellent tools to use alone or in conjunction with Botox / Dysport / Xeomin.
Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance that, when injected beneath the skin's surface, are used to make the skin look smoother, fuller, or both. At ARC Plastic Surgery, our team uses multiple different types of fillers to give you the best, natural-looking results. Each one has its own specialty and purpose. Dr. White will discuss all of your options and create a plan that works best for your needs.
Restylane, Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, Vollure, Volbella, & Belotero: These are off-the-shelf hyaluronic acid compounds, which means that they are made of some of the same components that are present in your skin. Each product is of a different consistency, which means that different ones are helpful to treat different wrinkle areas. The products last approximately 6 to 12 months, depending on where they are injected. They also have the advantage that they can be dissolved or reversed with hyaluronidase enzyme if there is a product-related problem.
This product is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres and is much firmer than the hyaluronic acid compounds. As such, Dr. White thinks that it is most powerful to build up weak cheekbones and a sagging jawline (off label). This product is FDA approved to treat smile lines, marionette lines, corners of the mouth, pre-jowl sulcus, and chin wrinkles. This product is also unique in that it can be used to plump and rejuvenate the hands, which is often something that is overlooked at most consultations. Radiesse has the added benefit of helping to build collagen in your skin.
This product is made of poly-L-lactic acid, the same material that is used in many absorbable sutures. This filler is different because it attempts to help your body build new collagen in depleted areas. This happens slowly over months and often requires multiple treatments. The results can last for more than two years after your last treatment, but this can vary from person to person.
Fat graft injection is a surgical procedure that is performed in the operating room. Dr. White performs liposuction, isolates the densest and purest fat cells, and then injects them into the face to restore facial volume. This procedure requires a donor area for fat and may necessitate multiple injections, but the surviving fat is permanent! Dr. White has written a book chapter on the topic of fat injection to enhance lips in “Autologous Fat Transfer.”
Most fillers contain a natural skin component that benefits the skin, which significantly helps individuals considering filler injections. Fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring element in the skin. As a result, when they are injected, they will feel completely natural beneath your skin. You'll also appreciate how subtle and natural the results are. If you're like most patients, that's exactly what you want. After all, who wants to look like a completely different person after treatment than they did before? Simply said, you want to be the best version of yourself. The majority of people should not even notice you had dermal fillers. It's one more reason to cherish your skin.
You are an excellent candidate for facial fillers if you want to appear your best and remove years from your face. You are ideal for facial fillers if you want smoother, younger-looking skin. The truth is that facial fillers are suitable for almost everybody who wishes to appear their best.
Being a good candidate for facial filler therapy does not necessitate a lot of effort. Otherwise, healthy nonsmokers may receive the best outcomes. Fillers are intended to temporarily fill superficial tissue and are therefore an excellent choice for persons willing to repeat treatments as needed to maintain effects. Many of today's fillers can last up to two years. However, longevity can be affected by factors like lifestyle, heredity, sun habits, and the region treated.
Dr. White will thoroughly analyze your facial appearance and skin tone before starting your procedure. Strategic places on your face may be indicated as suitable injection sites for the filler. An antibacterial agent will be used to clean the injection sites. If you have any pain at the injection site, a cold instrument or ice pack will help your skin, as would anesthetic ointment, to numb the treated area.
The injection itself just takes a few seconds per treated area. Dr. Jeremy will inject, massage, and evaluate the region being treated. If necessary, an additional filler may be used to ensure that you are satisfied with the results and that they satisfy your expectations. Depending on your particular treatment, the process can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes. This process is often described as painless, and the injections are easy for your medical expert to manage. If you do feel pain, please notify Dr. White so that it can be relieved as soon as possible.
Depending on what area you want addressed – and rejuvenated – make sure you choose the facial filler that best meets your aesthetic needs. With a thorough consultation from the ARC Plastic Surgery Miami staff and Dr. Jeremy White, your skin will thank you for choosing to refresh and renew!
Recovery time varies depending on the filler used in a specific region. In most cases, you can resume your normal daily activities right away. Avoid strenuous physical activity for the first 24 to 48 hours to reduce swelling and bruising. Dr. White will go over the specifics of your recuperation time with you.
The effects of hyaluronic acid fillers are transitory, lasting anywhere from six months to two years before being absorbed by the body. Keep in mind that receiving optimal results with a single procedure may not be attainable. Dr. White will determine how many syringes of filler will be required to achieve your objectives during your consultation. Soft tissue fillers produce immediate results.

Dr. White was fantastic!! I went in to “fix” the wrinkles in my forehead but after he sat with me for a few minutes he recommended a little “something “ under my eyes and literally in seconds I looked 10 years younger!! He fixed what was really bothering me but I didn’t know it!! Dr. White was personable, friendly and kind - he’s got the true bedside manner! The office staff was super great as well, I can’t tell you the last I felt so welcomed at a doctors office! I will definitely be back soon!
I went to see Dr. Jeremy White for botox and fillers and I couldn't be happier with my experience. He was very attentive to my needs and concerns and delivered very natural results. The ladies working at his office are very friendly and made me feel comfortable. I will definitely be back!

Relatively painless, facial fillers are a quick way to rejuvenate your look. There is a possibility of bruising and swelling. Dr. White will detail how to manage any pain during your recovery.
It is unusual for serious symptoms or complications to arise as a result of having dermal fillers. The risks differ depending on the type of filler used. Swelling, redness, or bruising may occur if a patient does have side effects.
If you’re considering plastic surgery, choosing the right plastic surgeon could not be more important.
