Get to the Heart of the Issue with a Z-Lift

Z-LIFT Chester, NJAging can make you feel like your body and face are transforming right before your eyes, because well, they are. As you age, your skin starts to lose collagen and elastin which makes it sag and look deflated. Specifically, people start to suffer from sagging around their jowls and jawline— making them look a lot older than they care to admit. Luckily, with a procedure called the Z-lift, Dr. Larry Weinstein can restore your jawlines natural heart shape and make you feel more confident in the process.

Why a Z-Lift?

Dr. Larry Weinstein has been using the Z-lift facelift procedure for over 20 years and finds that it gives patients great results with minimal downtime. Unlike a traditional facelift, the z-lift facelift uses standby anesthesia—- valium and a few injections— which means that it can be done in an outpatient clinic and allows the patient to go home just four to five hours later. Additionally, Dr. Larry Weinstein typically prefers the z-lift facelift because patients can get back to work after around four to five days and can start traveling after just one week— something you could never do with a traditional facelift.

What Are the Benefits?

If you look around and it looks like everyone is aging gracefully, they are but not without the help of doctors like Larry Weinstein. Sometimes, your skin needs a little plumping, lifting, and tucking to help you look and feel your best. With a Z-lift, patients experience a variety of exciting results including a more chiseled neckline and the reduced appearance of nasolabial folds.

If your jawline no longer resembles a heart due to a loss of elasticity in your skin, you may want to consider getting a z-lift facelift from Dr. Larry Weinstein. Schedule your z-lift facelift consultation with our Chester office today!

How to Combat Signs of Aging With Radiesse

 Radiesse Chester, NJAlthough you make wake up one day, look in the mirror, and notice more fine lines and wrinkles than you care to admit, aging doesn’t just happen overnight. Aging skin is a combination of factors including environmental factors, loss of facial volume, loss of elasticity, and repetitive muscle usage. When we expose our skin to the sun and other harmful factors every day, it will certainly show for it— that’s where fillers like Radiesse come into play.

What Is Radiesse?

Dr. Larry Weinstein has been using Radiesse to help cosmetically treat patients for more than 25 years— meaning that he’s practically a Radiesse expert. As a volumizing filler, Radiesse can be used on various parts of the face and body including the chin, hands, cheeks, around the mouth, and the jowls.

How Does It Differ from Other Fillers?

One common thread that Radiesse and other fillers share is that they are all dermal fillers that are designed to give patients temporary relief from fine lines and wrinkles.

One of the main distinctions between Radiesse and popular fillers like Juvederm and Restylane is that they are comprised different ingredients. For instance, Restylane and Juvederm are made of an ingredient called hyaluronic acid. Radiesse, however, is made up of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres.

Rather than simply filling in the skin, Radiesse works a bit differently than other fillers. Once it has been injected into your skin, calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres give patients immediate volume and encourage the natural stimulation of collagen in the skin. After the microspheres have metabolized over time, they leave behind only your natural collagen.

Does It Hurt?

If you are worried about experiencing pain during your injections, Radiesse has been approved by the FDA to be mixed with pain relievers like lidocaine to help lessen the pain.

Why Is It Popular?

Radiesse is popular for a variety of reasons including the immediacy of how fast it works, its versatility to treat both the face and body and its ability to last the upwards of a year or more.
