Facial Fillers (Philadelphia)SEE Before & After Filler Photos
Hyaluronic acid fillers (or dermal fillers) are an effective solution for patients looking for a fuller, wrinkle-free face. They are one of the greatest and most dramatic in-office procedures we offer, but they’re not a one-size-fits-all solution.
Dr. Allan Wulc of Philadelphia is particularly skilled in facial filler techniques and corrects unideal filler injections from other providers on a routine basis. He’ll work with you to determine the best combination of injections to achieve your aesthetic goals. Leave looking younger, refreshed, and natural.
WHAT ARE HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component of the skin. It’s what makes skin look smooth, plump, and youthful. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases, which causes fine lines, wrinkles, and possibly a hollow look.
Hyaluronic acid fillers — commonly known as “fillers” — are derived from the same hyaluronic acid naturally found in the skin. These fillers are injected into problem areas to rejuvenate your face by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and adding plumpness. Results from facial fillers are immediate.
What can facial fillers achieve?
- Correct hollows in the nasolabial folds and the marionette lines
- Conceal the jowls
- Build a more proportional and structured chin
- Enhance the jawline
- Augment and beautify the lips
- Fill smokers’ lines and bar codes
- Obscure wrinkles in the face and neck
- Improve the appearance of scars, both from acne and injuries
- Treat bags under the eyes
- Correct nasal imperfections
“Fillers allow a surgeon with a sculptural sense to create highlights and to conceal the weaknesses from within. It is the surgeon’s chance to be a makeup artist, only it’s not makeup: it lasts longer and allows makeup to look even more amazing when it is applied over the fillers.”
– Allan Wulc, MD
Are there different types of facial fillers?
There are different types of facial filler products, and Dr. Wulc will work with you to determine which one is best suited to your body and your needs. Here are the types of hyaluronic facial filler we offer here at W Cosmetic Surgery:
The Restylane® family of products are some of the most widely used and versatile injectable fillers used in the world. We are proud to have been one of the first practices in the Philadelphia area to introduce Restylane® Defyne, and Restylane® Refyne to our area. All these products shape and sculpt the face. Newly introduced products include Restylane Kysse, and Restylane Contour, all of which have specific locations and indications for use, and all of which we have.
The Juvederm® line of products can lift and contour your cheeks, plump your lips, and smooth out lines and wrinkles on the face. You’ll love the natural looking and long lasting results. This line of products includes Juvederm® XC, Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Voluma® XC, or Juvederm Volbella® XC, and newly introduced Juvederm Volux for contouring the jawline.
TEOSYALⓇ – Redensity, RHAⓇ 2,3, and 4
These products, newly offered in the U.S., are highly sophisticated hyaluronic acid products that have slightly more elasticity and seem to move better with facial expression. Scientifically formulated in Switzerland, we especially like Redensity for under eye treatments and for fine lines and wrinkles.

FACIAL FILLERS UNDER THE EYES
We are experts at injecting filler under the eyes. As an oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Wulc deal’s with the delicate anatomy of the undereye area and knows exactly where to add volume to create a beautiful result.
Not all patients will benefit from this procedure, but it can be a long lasting procedure that allows a patient to avoid cosmetic lower eyelid surgery for years. It’s also useful in patients who have had overly aggressive upper and lower eyelid surgery to restore a natural contour to the area around the eyes.

Which dermal filler is right for me?
There are different options when it comes to the types and placement of facial fillers. Often our patients have a preference based on their experience which we are happy to honor. However, in general, most fillers have a specifically designed set of biologic properties designed to best deal with certain facial problems.
Here are examples of areas of injection and how they achieve certain results:
1. Eyelid and Midfacial Injections
We’ve developed a technique for eyelid and midfacial injection that has been presented nationally. Eyelid and midfacial injections help to create an overall replenished, lifted look, so patients don’t have to rely on makeup every day. Instead, they see natural-looking results and are happy in their own skin.
2. Voluma Cheek Lift
If you rely on makeup to provide a fuller, more youthful look, the Voluma Cheek Lift may be a good option for you. Facial fillers can be used to achieve that desired look, removing wrinkles and creating a fuller-looking face. See how it worked for our patient Liz, as seen in this video.
Fillers in the cheek last at least a year, and some last up to two years. The results truly do speak for themselves and there is almost no downtime with this procedure. That makes it one of the best and most popular procedures we offer at W Cosmetic Surgery.
3. Chin Augmentation
Hyaluronic acid fillers are also a great option for chin augmentation — another method of rejuvenating the face. It involves injecting filler into areas of lost volume to create a more sculpted look, while also smoothing wrinkles and sagging.
4. Lip Fillers
Dr. Wulc recommends JuvedermⓇ XC for a natural-looking enhancement for your lips. If you’d like to plump your lips without looking overdone, this is a great option for you. We often use RestylaneⓇ is used to produce precise changes in contour and to adjust symmetry.
5. Wrinkles and Scars
Specific fillers, such as RestylaneⓇ Silk, RefyneⓇ, and RedensityⓇ all work beautifully to fill lines.
