Rejuvenate Your Facial Skin without Surgery – Injectable Treatments
For most people, the face is the first area of the body to show signs of aging. Prolonged exposure to the sun and other environmental elements, heredity, gravity, nicotine use, and simply the passing of time can all contribute to the diminishing of a youthful facial aesthetic. In addition, repetitive facial expressions such as laughing, frowning, and squinting can result in the formation of deep grooves and lines. At his Florham Park, New Jersey office, Dr. Joseph Fodero offers non-invasive treatment options to help patients regain the smoother, fuller skin of their youth.
When looking to correct facial aging, surgical procedures can yield dramatic results. However, such a degree of invasive surgery usually requires a significant amount of recovery time to heal. In addition, surgical corrections tend to cost quite a bit relative to non-surgical options, like Restylane®, or any of the other injectables.
These downsides to surgery often prevent many patients from considering the option altogether. Turning down the potential to surgically reverse the unwanted signs of aging is understandable, but it doesn’t mean you’re left without any options.
Restylane® is a safe, long-lasting injectable solution that restores volume to sunken areas of the face while correcting moderate wrinkles, scars, and creases. Millions of people have already been treated in over 70 countries. Some of the more common areas of the face where this treatment is utilized are around the mouth and cheeks.
The Restylane® dermal filler is composed of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, which is commonly found in our own skin. The hyaluronic acid used in Restylane® is a biodegradable gel that is completely compatible with the human body. The treatment typically lasts for about six months, or longer in some cases. For the best results, patients should receive their injections roughly every six months.
The Restylane® injection process is done in the doctor’s office and is quick and easy, typically taking less than 15 minutes. Dr. Fodero uses an ultrafine needle, which minimizes any discomfort. If needed, a topical anesthetic can be applied beforehand. The results are nearly immediate, and best of all, it requires absolutely no recovery or downtime, just like all the injectable options we offer.
Getting older can mean your skin starts to develop signs of aging, such as wrinkles and creases. Around the mouth, aging can also mean that the lips lose definition and get thinner. Creases and lines may develop along the upper lip. For those who are concerned about the concave, hollow appearance of their face and lips, there are volumizing solutions like Restylane® injections. Specifically for the lips, there is Restylane® Silk.
Restylane® Silk is another tool in the Restylane® volumizing filler family. This is an injectable treatment that is made of hyaluronic acid. The improvements last for about six months after a treatment session and are great for creating full, pouty lips. Most patients will continue to see improvement and fullness of the lips for more than six months. The treatment is a simple injection process, but it requires the expertise of a trained professional to achieve the most natural improvement.
Restylane® Silk is a hyaluronic acid volumizing filler made up of the same sugar naturally present in your skin. This makes fillers like Restylane® Silk ideal, since it lowers the risk of complication and readily bonds with skin structures. Hyaluronic acid is also an excellent volumizer because it is known to hold up to 1,000 times its volume in water.
Restylane® Silk is an FDA-approved volumizing injection that can be helpful for patients who are at least 21 years of age. To learn more about Restylane® Silk, consult with Dr. Fodero.
WHAT IS Restylane® Lyft?
Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane® Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane® Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane® Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).
WHAT IS Restylane® Refyne?
As skin loses elasticity with age, the lines that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) appear more noticeable. Restylane® Refyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler made with XpresHAn Technology™ that helps correct these lines for a more natural look to your face.3† The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane® Refyne is also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling, frowning and even puckering up.
WHAT IS Restylane® Defyne?
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and the lines that run from the sides of the nose toward the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) become more pronounced. Restylane® Defyne is crafted with XpresHAn Technology™ to correct these deepened lines.3† The unique cross-linking of the gel in Restylane® Defyne is also designed to help support your facial expressions—for natural-looking results that help maintain your natural movement.
Sculptra is FDA-approved dermal filler that is a great tool for reducing the signs of aging. It is one of the newest and longest lasting dermal fillers available. For patients who have lost facial volume, Sculptra can be an ideal choice for rejuvenating their appearance. The filler is effective for treating nasolabial folds, deep wrinkles, and facial fat loss caused by aging or HIV-related lipoatrophy.
Often, the signs of aging are a result of the skin’s natural tendency to lose volume. Aged skin also loses elasticity, which is a central cause of wrinkling and creasing. Sculptra treats many deep lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid. When Sculptra is injected into the skin, the poly-l-lactic acid bonds with the skin’s support structures through a process called collagen neo-synthesis. Collagen is a central part of what gives skin a fuller, more voluminous appearance. Sculptra is bio-absorbable and bio-compatible, meaning it is effective at bonding with the skin.
The improvements from Sculptra typically last thirteen months. Each treatment session is relatively quick and convenient, taking as little as half an hour depending on the size of the area being treated.
For the most natural and satisfying results, it’s best for patients to consult with Dr. Fodero. During the consultation, you can discuss your personal goals and the results that can be achieved with Sculptra.
Dysport® Cosmetic injections can be an excellent way to improve the appearance of wrinkles, lines, creases, and crow’s feet. Dysport® Cosmetic does not act as a dermal filler; rather, it uses a safe, purified derivation of botulinum toxin type A to relax the underlying muscles. By temporarily paralyzing these muscles, Dysport® Cosmetic is designed to address the appearance of wrinkles and lines.*
The Dysport® Cosmetic treatment, performed at our Florham Park, New Jersey office, is harmless and relatively painless. Patients may begin to notice their results after the treatment session.*
