Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Injectable dermal fillers are used to plump the creases between your nose and lips (nasolabial folds or laugh lines) and between your lips and chin (labiomandibular folds or drool lines).
As we age, fat volume diminishes in our face and cheeks being to droop. This increases the prominence of nasolabial folds and drool lines and makes you look aged.
Like BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers are a quick and painless way to restore youth and beauty to your face. We use a variety of fillers in our office, and we can select the right one to help with your wrinkle reduction.
Juvederm®, Bellatero®, Restylane®, Voluma®, Bellafil®, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the skin, these products can add plumpness to both nasolabial folds and labiomandibular folds. They can decrease the appearance of wrinkles in other parts of your face too, such as around the lips and under the eye in the tear trough.
Results last from six to eight months.
Made from calcium hydroxyapatite, this substance adds volume to nasolabial folds and labiomandibular folds as well as augmenting your cheeks.
It provides fuller results than Juvederm® and can last up to a year.
Made from Poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra® penetrates deep into the skin and replenishes lost collagen. It is best used to fill nasolabial folds, sunken cheeks, and hollow temporal regions.
Results can last for two years after a few injections to build the ideal look.
Unlike other dermal fillers, silicone is permanent. It is useful to enhance lips and decrease the appearance of nasolabial folds and labiomandibular folds, but only in small quantities. It is also ideal for filling in "smoker's lines" on the upper lip.
Our microinjection technique allows patients to build their desired level of enhancement gradually until the permanent result is achieved.
Fat harvested from unwanted places on your own body, such as love handles or abdomen, can be processed for injection to improve your appearance in other areas. Fat injections can be used like any other dermal filler to correct nasolabial folds, labiomandibular folds, hollow cheeks, thin lips, or sunken tear troughs.
Any remaining fat can be frozen and stored for future injections.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Can you achieve a healthy, youthful glow to your skin with a firmer and lifted appearance, without any chemicals, drugs or surgery?
The answer is yes, using your own blood sample.
Platelet rich plasma, or “ PRP “ is a simple solution that uses your own blood to extract the platelet portion. This part of your blood contains the energy and growth factors to repair damage and stimulate new collagen growth in any part of the body, and works especially well on your skin!
The process is simple and takes about 15 minutes . A tiny micro needle is used to place the PRP to the neck, jowls, cheek, forehead, and around the eyes.
Three sessions separated by 2 weeks are recommended.
To maintain the lifting and tightening results, twice a year treatments are performed.
Suture Cheek Lift, Mini Cheek Lift, Thread Lift
During a suture cheek lift, we use local anesthesia and thin sutures to reposition cheeks and jowls for a more flattering, more youthful appearance.
Are you interested in how dermal fillers can rejuvenate your look? Call (212) 661-2563 today to schedule your free consultation. We welcome patients throughout the Manhattan, New York City, and Long Island areas.
One of our NYC plastic surgeons will discuss the available options to achieve the look you want, and many of these procedures can be performed the same day as your consultation. We use a numbing injection to minimize any discomfort you might feel with your dermal filler injection. Swelling and bruising can occur, but will likely subside within 24 hours or be easily covered with makeup.
