Get a Liquid Facelift In Time for the Holidays!

 Fillers Chester Township, NJFine lines and wrinkles may be indicative of the places you’ve been and the things you’ve seen (mainly the sun), but they can also make you feel self-conscious and like you never want to have your picture taken— let alone have it plastered on your holiday family card. Luckily, Dr. Larry Weinstein has a variety of options— both surgical and non-invasive— that can work to correct these facial concerns and get you camera ready in no time. However, because the holidays are just around the corner, non-invasive options like a liquid facelift may be the best way to go.

If there’s one thing that Juvederm, Belotero, Radiesse, and Voluma all have in common, it’s that they’re all dermal fillers. Each one of these fillers has pros and cons to them. For instance, Belotero can be applied in just a few minutes, but it only lasts for a couple of months. Whereas, Juvederm and Radiesse take a little longer to apply but last the upwards of 6 to 15 months depending on the patient. During a liquid facelift, Dr. Larry Weinstein will strategically inject facial fillers across your face to help temporarily soften fine lines and wrinkles, add more volume to your skin, and give you an overall more youthful appearance.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein, he will determine whether or not dermal fillers are the right option for you. Depending on your skin and the areas of concerns that you would like to target, Dr. Larry Weinstein will comprise a plan that is catered to your skin and your skin’s specific needs.

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.

3 Desk Exercises to Try for Hand Pain

Hand Surgery Chester, New JerseyWhether you have arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, hand pain can make everyday tasks like typing, writing, or even opening and close a door to become painful. To help you ease that pain, we encourage our patients to try some hand exercises. By strengthening the joints in hand and taking pressure off of your tendons, hand exercises can give you almost instant relief— plus you can do them from the comfort of your desk at work. Read on to learn more about three exercises you can try on your own.

Stress Ball

They may have handed them out at your last work conference, and you threw it away thinking you’d never use it again, but stress balls do serve a purpose (other than swag). Using either a stress ball or a small, soft ball, wrap your fingers around it and make a fist. Then, slowly pulse the ball using the muscles in your hand. You may notice that your hand is sore at first but after a few days of repeating this exercise, you should find some relief.

Wrist Roll

You may not realize it, but a lot of the tension in your hands may be coming from your wrists. To help ease the tension in your wrists, rotate them from side-to-side and then in a complete circular motion— this will help loosen up stiff joints and break up any lactic acid in the process.

Finger Pulls

Taking one hand, grab the fingers on your other hand and gently pull them back toward your wrist. If you feel a lot of pain or tension when you do this exercise, try to ease a little deeper into it every time.

Repeating these exercises a few times a day, every day can help give you a lot of relief from hand pain or joint discomfort. If you would like to learn more about hand pain or surgery, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein today to schedule an appointment!
