Injectable Fillers

Get rid of fine lines, creases, and wrinkles without the surgery

Do you know that you can diminish the fine lines, creases, and wrinkles from your face without surgery, in about an hour? Do you know that it only takes one office visit to have fuller and plumper lips? You can also reduce or remove your unsightly scars without surgery or downtime.

Today’s injectable facial fillers at the New York Group for Plastic Surgery are a convenient, effective, and non-surgical solution to improve your overall facial appearance.

Hyaluronic Acid-Based Facial Fillers

Restylane®, Radiesse®, and JUVÉDERM® are the most effective hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. However, to understand how they work, you must understand hyaluronic acid and its benefits. HA is a naturally-occurring and biocompatible component readily available in the human body — it’s a lubricating fluid in your joints, keeps your skin supple, and has various other uses. Hyaluronic acid’s most unique feature is its ability to hold up to 1,000x its own weight in water.

Youthful skin is rich in HA, which is why your skin appears smooth, supple, and voluminous when you’re young. However, as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid gradually diminishes, leading to tired-looking, dry, and wrinkled skin. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers restore your skin’s HA components to enhance your youthfulness, giving you a fuller and supple appearance. It’s also injected into lips and cheeks to enhance their contours.

Hyaluronic acid is also biodegradable, and your body metabolizes it within 6 to 12 months, depending on the formulation, treatment area, and your body’s natural metabolism rate. Furthermore, each hyaluronic acid-based filler is unique — they have unique formulations designed to address different parts of your face. Your cosmetic provider will carefully assess your skin and discuss your goals to recommend the ideal filler for your chosen treatment areas.

Menu Of Injectable Fillers In Our New York Medical Spa

Our medical spa offers a variety of injectables that improve your facial appearance and increase your self-image. At the New York Group for Plastic Surgery, these treatments are administered by a highly trained and skilled plastic surgeon, ensuring optimal precision and patient safety. These treatments provide a temporary alternative to plastic surgeries, such as a facelift and eyelid surgery, when the creasing is minimal.

Restylane®, Radiesse®, and JUVÉDERM® fill in frown lines and marionette lines around the mouth, as well as other common facial wrinkles. These products, made with a natural substance found in the body called hyaluronic acid, also produce fuller lips. The improvements can last from 6 to 18 months.

Sculptra® improves facial contours by encouraging the body to increase collagen production, gradually increasing skin thickness. It restores facial volume around hollowed cheeks, sunken eyes, and marionette lines. Sculptra is made from a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is similar to the substance produced by the body during strenuous exercises. Optimal results are usually attained after 3 to 6 initial treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. These improvements usually last about 2 years.

At your personalized consultation, your surgeon will explain the various facial treatment options to help you choose the one that’s best suited for you. He might even suggest alternatives to injectable fillers that might be more appropriate for your specific condition. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, for example, improve wrinkles caused by facial muscle movements. If you have advanced signs of aging, you might achieve better results with a facial surgery procedure, such as a brow lift or a facelift.

Collagen-Production Facial Fillers

Sculptra® is the most effective collagen-production facial filler available. While hyaluronic acid-based fillers provide immediate results by enhancing your skin’s natural HA quantity, collagen fillers increase your body’s ability to produce collagen. However, to understand the unique benefits of these fillers, you must understand collagen and its characteristics. Collagen is an essential structural component of the skin — it gives your skin its youthful firmness and elasticity. It also holds your skin in an upright position, defying the force of gravity.

When you’re young, your body produces vast quantities of collagen to ensure youthfulness and optimal structure. However, as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen gradually diminishes, leading to gaunt and hollowed skin with wrinkles and creases.

Injectables like Sculptra carry components that activate or catalyze your body’s innate collagen-production capabilities. Over time, your body produces more collagen, and the increased collagen reserves increase facial volume, minimizing the visible wrinkles and lines.

Since Sculptra relies on your body’s natural collagen production capabilities, you have to wait for several months to see optimal results. However, the final results are completely natural, show no signs of cosmetic manipulation, and last a lot longer than hyaluronic acid fillers. Your cosmetic surgeon will discuss your unique goals to determine if you’ll benefit more from hyaluronic acid fillers or Sculptra.
