Let’s Fill You In On Fillers

Fillers  Morristown, NJWhen it comes to the world of injections, all of them are created equal, right? Luckily for you, that’s not the case. In fact, there are two main types of injections that we offer here at Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office: neurotoxins (Botox and Dysport) and fillers. Neurotoxins work by temporarily relaxing your facial muscles whereas fillers work by temporarily filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Let’s take a closer look at the three types of fillers that we offer at our office and what they are best used for.

Juvederm, Belotero, and Voluma

These three fillers are made from a substance called hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance found in the skin. As you age, however, your body produces less hyaluronic acid which contributes to fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of volume in your skin. With Juvederm, Belotero, and Voluma injections, however, we can help fill in fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth to help reduce wrinkles and soften deep folds. Additionally, Juvederm and Belotero can be used to help add more volume and contour to the lips.

Restylane

Restylane is also made from hyaluronic acid but is mostly used to add more volume to the face— specifically the cheeks. It can also be used, however, to treat fine lines and wrinkles as well.

Radiesse

Unlike the fillers that we have already discussed in this article, Radiesse isn’t made of hyaluronic acid. In fact, it’s made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite. Once it is injected into the skin, it helps restore volume and decrease fine lines and wrinkles. After it has worn off, Radiesse encourages your skin’s natural production of collagen so that it lasts a little longer.

All of these fillers that we offer at our office are a great and temporary way to soften fine lines and wrinkles and add more volume to your face.

Is it Too Late to Get Breast Implants Before Swimsuit Season?

Breast Augmentation  Chester NJWith summer just around the corner, it’s safe to say that you’re either eager to get into a bikini or you’re dreading it. If you’re feeling like the ladder due to sagging, drooping, or small breasts, then you may be considering getting a breast augmentation or breast lift from Dr. Larry Weinstein. But because a breast augmentation takes a little while to recover from, some of our patients want to know if there is still enough time to get this surgery before summer?

It Only Takes a Few Weeks to Recover

On average, patients get rid of swelling and see the full results from their breast augmentation after just a couple of weeks. And because summer is still over a month away, that gives you plenty of time to recover. Even if you decide you want to get a breast augmentation in the middle of July, it should only take you a couple of weeks until you can be in your swimsuit and the water showing off your newest additions.

Take Advantage of Recovery Time

One of the best ways to speed up your recovery so that you can get in your bikini with your new breasts is to really baby yourself during recovery. The more you rest, relax, and avoid things like heavy lifting or strenuous workouts, the more likely you are to have a fast recovery.

It’s never too late to get breast implants— especially from Dr. Larry Weinstein. If you are worried about not having enough recovery time before summer, schedule your breast consultation as soon as possible at our Chester office: 908-879-2222.
