3 Benefits of a Liquid Facelift

Facial Fillers Chester, NJYou may think that in order for you to get a facelift that you have to go under the knife, but Dr. Weinstein has a secret for you: you don’t. With a liquid facelift, Dr. Weinstein can give you a similar look without the surgery. By using a combination of fillers and Botox, Dr. Weinstein will make strategic injections across your face to help you get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, and add more volume to any lax skin. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of this procedure

No Recovery Time

One of the things that deters a lot of patients from a traditional surgical facelift is the fact that they have to spend time recovering. If you live a busy life either raising a family or working, the last thing that you have time to do is lay in bed for a few weeks recovering. With a liquid facelift, there is no real recovery required. The only thing we will ask you to do is not to exercise for 24 hours afterwards so that everything settles just fine.

Real Results

Our patients keep coming back to Botox and fillers for a variety of reasons, but the biggest one is that they give people real results every time. Even though you won’t see the results from Botox for about 3-5 days after your injections, you will see results from your fillers almost immediately.

You Have More Control

The fun thing about a liquid facelift is that Dr. Weinstein can start out small, see how you like it, and then add more fillers as he goes on; that way you have more control over your results. This kind of control, helps our patients feel more confident.

Here at Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office, he believes that it’s never too late to feel confident about the skin that you are in. Let’s take a closer look at a few reasons why it’s not too late for you to try facial fillers.

There’s No Need to Wait

One of the biggest things to know about these anti-aging fillers is that there’s no need to wait. Unless you have some allergic reaction to fillers or if you have health issues, there is no better time than now to jump on this bandwagon.

3 Things You Never Knew About Fillers

Facial Fillers Chester NJBefore Kylie Jenner came out in public sporting a new set of lips, you may not have been that familiar with lip fillers. As one of the most popular non- invasive procedures out there, fillers can be used for a variety of different things including adding volume to your lips and cheeks and helping soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, unless you’ve had fillers, you may not know much about them. Let’s take a closer look at three things you may not know about fillers.

Location Changes As You Age

As you age, your skin starts to lose collagen and elastin which can lead to sagginess, fine lines, and wrinkles. When this happens, Dr. Larry Weinstein will have to be a little more strategic when injecting fillers into your skin to really help both fill in fine lines and wrinkles and add more volume to certain parts of the skin. So, even though he can inject most 20-year-olds one way, if you are in your 50’s, he will have to use a few different techniques to help give you the best results.

Everybody Is Different

Just like with any procedure that Dr. Larry Weinstein does, it’s important to remember that everybody is different. And because everybody is different, that means that the type of filler we use on you, may not be good to use on your friend. It also means that everyone will get slightly different results including how long your fillers last for; for some patients, their fillers will last an entire year whereas others will need to have touch ups done a lot sooner.

They’re Not the Same As Botox

One thing that you may be surprised to learn is that Botox is not a filler, but it’s an injectable. Fillers work to actually fill in fine lines and wrinkles, whereas Botox works on a deeper level to stop your facial muscles from contracting which helps to soften them in the process.

Now that you know a little bit more about fillers, it’s time to schedule your consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein at our Chester office today. Call us at 908-879-2222.

Is a Liquid Facelift Actually Worth It?

Facial Fillers  Chester NJWhen you start to notice signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of collagen and volume in your skin, it can seem like it’s all you think about. And although there are small fixes that we can make, you may want to consider a liquid facelift. But because liquid facelifts are temporary, it has a lot of people wondering if they’re worth it. Let’s take a closer look.

It Doesn’t Require Surgery

A lot of patients choose to undergo a liquid facelift instead of a traditional one because it doesn’t require any surgery or downtime. And, if you live a busy life and have a full schedule, the last thing you have time to do is lay in bed for a couple of weeks. With a liquid facelift, you can come into our office on your lunch break and then go right back to work.

It Works

If it’s results you are looking for, then you can get them with a liquid facelift. Depending on how severe your fine lines and wrinkles are will help us determine just how good of results you will get. But, Dr. Larry Weinstein will ensure that you get the best results possible. Even if it means that you have to come back in for a few touch-ups.

It’s Affordable

Although Botox and fillers aren’t exactly cheap, they are a lot more affordable than a surgical facelift. Plus, depending on how much you get and what types of fillers you get, a liquid facelift can last the upwards of a year which means that you don’t have to spend too much money very often.

Having a more youthful looking complexion doesn’t always require surgery. If you want to learn more about a liquid facelift and whether or not it’s right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein at our Chester office today and call us at 908-879-2222.

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. If you are interested in learning more about dermal fillers, schedule a consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein at our Chester office today and call: 908-879-2222.

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.

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 Juvederm Myths

JuvedermYou fill up your car, you fill up your water bottle, you fill your plate full of food, and you can even fill in your fine lines and wrinkles around your face. As one of the most popular dermal fillers on the market, Juvederm is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on your face and in your lips. However, just like with anything that you are putting into your body, it’s nice to know fact from fiction. This article will discuss three common myths associated with Juvederm to help you feel more informed. Read on to learn more.

  1. It Takes a While to Recover

One of the things that Dr. Larry Weinstein can say for sure about Juvederm is that as long as you aren’t having any adverse reaction to it, you shouldn’t have any recovery time. In fact, although your skin may be a little inflamed in some areas for a day or two, everything else should be as good as new.

  1. It Can Be Used Around Your Whole Face

A common misconception that people have is that dermal fillers like Juvederm and injectables like Botox can be used to your entire face. However, that’s not the case. In fact, Juvederm is only approved to help fill in fine lines and wrinkles from the nose down— including your lips, nasolabial folds, and cheeks. Additionally, Botox is only approved to treat the fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes.

  1. It’s Harmful

If you are on an organic kick just like everyone else in the country, you are rightfully concerned about what you’re putting into your body and any harm that it can cause. However, Juvederm is a filler that is made up of an ingredient that is found naturally in our bodies: hyaluronic acid. So unlike other treatments that involve silicone, with Juvederm, you know that you are getting a natural treatment 100% of the time.

Now that you are aware of some of the myths associated with Juvederm, you can feel more informed before you get injections. To learn more about Juvederm and other fillers that we offer, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Larry Weinstein, contact our office today!

 

 

The R’s of the Filler World: Restylane Vs. Radiesse

facial fillersWhen it comes to dermal fillers, there are a variety of different options for you to choose from. Derived from the same concept of filling in the fine lines and wrinkles on your face, however, what is the difference between fillers? As two of the most popular fillers that Dr. Larry Weinstein offers, both Restylane and Radiesse provide unique benefits to help you look and feel younger. Read on to learn more.

Restylane
As a substance that is naturally found in the body, hyaluronic acid is something that is replicated in dermal fillers such as Restylane. By adding collagen and elasticity to your skin, hyaluronic acid is something that fades as you age. Luckily, with dermal fillers like Restylane, you can help to give your body back its collagen and elasticity to give you a more youthful-looking glow. By injecting Restylane directly into the fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose, you can get rid of smile lines and help restore elasticity to your face.

Radiesse
Composed of calcium hydroxylapatite, Radiesse is a filler that is injected below the surface of the skin. By adding immediate volume to your skin, you can leave Dr. Weinstein’s office with results that are worth showing off to your friends and family. Radiesse is primarily used to treat nasolabial folds and fill in the cheeks and around the mouth. As one of the best benefits of all, Radiesse can last a year or longer depending on the patient and their skin type.

The great thing about both Restylane and Radiesse is that they are both FDA approved— meaning that you have nothing to worry about in regards to your health and safety. And, as two fillers that are each unique and useful in their ways, you can rest assured that you are going to get the best results possible. If you would like to schedule an appointment to get one of these fillers or if you would simply like to learn more, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein today!
