How Botox and dermal fillers can help you achieve a more youthful appearance

Cosmetic injectables are increasingly popular non-surgical treatments that can restore lost volume to the face, smooth lines, and wrinkles, soften creases and enhance facial contours. Here is some more information about injectables that help rejuvenate and enhance your natural beauty.

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin

There are two different types of wrinkles – dynamic and static. Static is continuously visible wrinkles that are treated with dermal fillers. Dynamic wrinkles form due to muscle contractions under the skin caused by facial movements such as smiling, furrowing the brow and squinting and are best treated with injectables including Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. All three are biological toxins that have been transformed into therapeutic agents used to treat crow’s feet, anger lines, lip lines and more. It takes about three days to fully work, with results lasting three to six months.

Radiesse

FDA-approved to treat moderate-to-severe static wrinkles, folds, and creases around the nose and mouth, Radiesse is a go-to treatment Dr. Weinstein has been using for more than 25 years. Composed of microspheres made of calcium hydroxylapatite in a water-based gel, Radiesse stimulates the production of collagen when it’s injected into lines and wrinkles to add volume. The treatment only takes about 15 minutes to perform, with immediate results lasting up to a year.

Restylane

Using a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin, Restylane is an FDA-approved treatment used to add volume and fullness to the face to correct facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds. It’s also effective in improving lipstick lines, which is the area below the nose and above the upper lip, the outer corners of the mouth and marionette lines, which is the area that extends from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.

Juvederm, Bolotero, and Voluma

Also using hyaluronic acid, fillers such as Juvederm are injected around the mouth to reduce wrinkles and soften deep folds, restoring facial contours for a more youthful appearance. Juvederm Voluma is great for adding volume to the cheek area. Juvederm and Bolotero can also be used to restore fuller lips.

Dermal fillers can be used in combination with Botox to help you achieve the youthful appearance you desire. If you’d like to learn about all the non-surgical ways to improve your appearance, call (908) 879-2222 today for a consultation.

7 things you need to know about buttock and outer-thigh lifts

Aging, significant weight loss, and even genetics can cause the buttocks and thighs to sag. Often a healthy diet and exercise program can’t tighten, firm and contour this area as well as lift procedures. Here are seven things you should know about buttock and outer-thigh lifts.

Ideal candidates are in good health. You should also avoid smoking and have realistic expectations about outcomes from the procedure.

A buttock lift and outer-thigh lift are often performed together. Although the procedures can be done separately, patients often find the buttocks and thighs have the same issues.

The incisions are made in places that scars can be easily hidden. The buttock lift incision is made across the top of the buttocks from one hip bone to the other, low enough to be concealed by underwear or a bikini. For the outer-thigh lift, the incision is made in the groin area. Though they will be visible, the scars will fade over time.

Liposuction may be performed. During the procedures, excess skin and fat are removed. Support sutures are placed deep within the underlying tissue, while skin is then redraped around the new contours. Incisions are closed with sutures. Patients are usually required to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and speed up the healing process.

The lift procedures are typically performed on an outpatient basis. The lift is done under general anesthesia. Most patients can leave after the effects of the anesthesia have worn off, while some patients may have to stay overnight.

Swelling, soreness and bruising can last for up to a month. This is typical for recovery, but pain can be controlled with medication. Most people can return to work and regular, non-strenuous activities after about two weeks, but must avoid strenuous activities for four weeks or longer.

They are not weight-loss procedures. This is performed only on those who are not significantly overweight. After the procedures, the buttocks and outer thighs have trimmer contours, and the skin is tighter and smoother. Surgical results are long-lasting.
