What to do about wrinkles? Many people live with them, many people hate them. Newly developed treatments can help minimize wrinkles, often without the use of surgery and with minimal down time. With most treatments, you do not have to miss work at all.
Many people benefit the most from a combination of treatments. Botox® can be used in connection with Restylane®, Juvederm® Voluma®, Juvederm Ultra® , Juvederm Ultra Plus®, Belotero® Balance, Radiesse®, Volbella®, Vollure™ or Sculptra®. All procedures may be performed on the same day. Our office will design a regimen to fit your specific skin needs.
For facial wrinkles in the upper half of the face, including those around the eyes, the vertical line between the eyebrows and the horizontal lines across the forehead, Botox® has been very helpful. Botox® has been used for medical reasons such as certain nerve and eye conditions for about 20 years. The Botox® injections generally are minimally uncomfortable. Restylane® is a crystal-clear, biodegradable NASHA (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid) gel, which is injected into the dermis in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous, produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, and is gentle and safe to the skin. Restylane® does not require allergy testing so these treatments can often be performed on the same day as your consultation
Radiesse® is another filler meaning that it can be used where you have wrinkles, scars and furrows. It is also used to treat the lines that go from the corners of the nose to the lips, to outline the lips, for facial wasting and lipodystrophy (lipoatrophy) and for other areas as well. Radiesse™ also does not require allergy testing so treatments can often be performed on the same day as your consultation. Our dermatologist has written papers about Radiesse™ that were published in the dermatology literature. He is one of the first physicians in the New York area to use Radiesse™.
Many fillers, including Restylane® can also help certain acne scars.
