The Fast Track to Fabulous
Dermal fillers are an outpatient procedure with little to no downtime. Results are usually noticeable within 24 hours, depending on the type of dermal filler you choose for your lip enhancement.
Non-surgical dermal fillers are an excellent way to enhance facial contours or features, reverse the signs of aging, and correct scars.
At Ethos Spa, we put you first. We will always take the time to talk with you honestly and in detail, to make sure we understand what you want to achieve. We want you to have an exceptional experience at Ethos Spa, and we work hard to make that happen. Our relationship with you always begins with a free consultation. During this time, you should be prepared to discuss your goals with your physician, so they can personalize a treatment plan to get the results you want.
It depends on the type of dermal filler that was used. During your initial consultation, talk with your physician about the different options and how long it takes each of them to produce optimal results.
The benefits of dermal fillers can be enhanced by using skin care products containing Vitamin-C or Tretinoin.
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment option for people who want to add fullness to the face or a particular region of the face. They are very popular because they have many of the same goals as plastic surgery, but are minimally invasive, much safer, and less costly.
Lip fillers are the most commonly used method of lip enhancement. Dermal fillers are also used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars.

Yes, although dermal fillers will not eliminate them forever. Wrinkles occur because, as the body ages, fat deposits in the face break down and disappear. This causes skin to sag and form lines and wrinkles.
When dermal fillers are strategically injected into the facial skin, they fill in the areas that the fat deposits have abandoned. By restoring the volume beneath the skin, wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed away. Results last from six months to a year, and when combined with other skin care treatments – such as Botox – they are highly effective at reducing the signs of age.
Dermal fillers are very effective at reducing the appearance of depressed scars like those caused by acne. The dermal injection raises the scarred skin, which makes it look even with the rest of the skin.
Some lip fillers are temporary, while others are permanent. Depending on the type of filler used, the results can last anywhere from six months to a lifetime.
For non-permanent lip fillers, how long they last depends on various factors. For example, with hyaluronic acid, the body will eventually absorb the injected material. The rate of absorption is different for each person. Other factors that influence the duration of results include how much filler was used and the location where the filler was injected.
If you seek a great alternative to plastic surgery for your lip enhancement, lip fillers are the best choice.
Ethos Spa in New Jersey uses several different types of dermal fillers. Each type has unique benefits and uses. For example, Juvéderm™ and Restylane™ are two brands of dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most widely used dermal filler for lips. It is a gel-like substance that occurs naturally in the skin. Because it can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, it is naturally a very hydrating and plumping substance.
The results of HA are noticeable within 24 hours and last six months to a year. Another popular dermal filler brand is Sculpta. Sculpta contains polylactic acid, which is a synthetic material that stimulates your own body’s production of collagen.
Polylactic acid tends to work particularly well on the lower half of the face. It can plump lips and fill in laughter lines and nasolabial folds. Because it’s a stimulator, polylactic acid does not produce immediate results. Rather, it stimulates a reaction in your collagen, so results appear in four to six weeks. Plus, these results are considered semi-permanent, needing only occasional routine maintenance.
There are many other types of dermal fillers. When you meet with your Ethos Spa physician, be prepared to discuss in detail the type of results you’re looking for. This will help determine the dermal filler that’s right for you.
Most of the potential side effects of dermal fillers are mild and temporary. These include swelling and bruising, which usually disappear within two weeks.
In cases where the patient is not pleased with the end results, it is possible to undo the effect – if hyaluronic acid was the type of dermal filler used. In this situation, an enzyme called hyaluronidase can be used to break down the hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid will then be absorbed into the body.
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin using small needles, so there will be some discomfort.
However, there are several pre-injection numbing solutions, like a local anesthetic, that can be used to help minimize pain. Be sure to discuss this with your physician during your initial consultation.

Immediately following your treatment, you may notice:
These are normal reactions, so don’t be alarmed. You might also notice some minor bruises or
lumps in the area that was injected. These should disappear in about two weeks. To better prevent swelling, you should avoid heavy physical activity for 3-4 days after your injections.
In addition, keep your face elevated for several hours immediately following the injections. You can apply cold compresses to keep swelling down. And again, swelling and bruising should disappear in about two weeks.
Any healthy adult who wants to feel more confident about their appearance! Fillers are great for patients looking for an alternative to plastic surgery and a convenient way to fight early signs of aging.

Yes, absolutely. One of the best ways to communicate your desired results is by showing your physician a photo of what you’d like your end results to be. So, do your homework. Scour magazines and the Internet for the ideal set of lips. This also gives you the opportunity to discuss what’s realistic. At Ethos Spa, our physicians want to communicate with you honestly and respectfully. They don’t want you to leave disappointed due to unrealistic expectations. Together, you and your physician will analyze your ideal lip, then discuss each treatment option (lip augmentation, lip enhancement) and its realistic results.
Possibly. Talk with your Ethos Spa physician during your initial consultation.
Breast augmentation and Brazilian butt lifts are often accomplished through fat transfer. Fat transfer can also be used for lip augmentation. Talk to your Ethos Spa physician about the benefits of fat transfer compared to other types of dermal fillers. Together, you can select a treatment that will provide you the optimal results you’re looking for in lip augmentation.
Dr. Soni did a great job in explaining the procedure and making sure all my questions and concerns were answered. I had my first session on the first day and I was very impressed with how fast everything went and I also saw a difference in the tattoo once it began to heal. Every time I went in for a session the staff was very nice and I never had to wait a long time. Totally loved this place!
Extremely impressed with the physicians, lovely and welcoming staff...and the results!!! I have been coming here for 4 years, and highly recommend this entire team. They are meticulous in their approach, and both warm and professional. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would!
Wow. Very impressed with the quality of work they do. So far I’ve been coming here for over 4 months and they are just phenomenal. I love coming here. Thanks ethos for your assistance with my tattoo removal.
