Dermal Fillers in NYC

For New Yorkers looking to combat the emergence of wrinkles, skin creases and volume loss that accompany the aging process, a wide array of dermal fillers are available. Lip injections and facial fillers like Juvederm offer patients the ability to achieve a youthful firmness almost immediately, while softening lines and wrinkles dramatically. Even better, these impressive results can be obtained at a fraction of the cost of a conventional facelift procedure.

Just about everyone wishes they could discover the fountain of youth. While the passage of time does play a significant role in such dreaded changes in appearance, factors such as sun exposure, gravity, repeated facial expressions and genetic disposition can all cause us to look older much faster than we would like.

Juvederm®

Juvederm XC®

logo_juvederm 2An extremely popular choice for facial enhancement, Juvederm XC ® is a hyaluronic acid wrinkle filler. Taking the form of a smooth gel, this filler also incorporates lidocaine to make treatment itself much more comfortable. Juvederm® is ideal for addressing lines surrounding the mouth and nose and also for plumping the lips. It is possible to achieve results that last from multiple months to well over a year. Recent research has suggested that repeat treatments of fillers such as Juvederm® may actually prompt the body to produce more of its own natural collagen, an added benefit sure to please patients of every age.

Juvederm VOLBELLA® XC

This advanced injectable gel can give you natural-looking results for up to one year. Juvederm Volbella ® XC adds subtle volume to the lips and also works to soften the appearance of vertical lip lines (also known as perioral lines) that can be caused by exposure to the sun, repeated muscle movements or other factors. A great choice for increasing lip fullness and diminishing lip lines without looking like you’ve had work done.

Juvederm Voluma®

This injectable filler brings renewed volume to areas including the chin, cheeks and cheekbones themselves. A unique feature of Juvederm Voluma® is its ability to expand after injection, restoring facial contours which have grown less pronounced over time.

Injections of this particular filler tend to last roughly 18 months, but in some cases, as long as two full years. With a typical injection procedure lasting between 15 and 30 minutes, use of this filler can provide dramatic results while remaining extremely convenient and cost-effective.

Radiesse®

radiesse_logoRadiesse® is a temporary facial filler with the ability to rapidly rejuvenate areas of the face suffering from diminished tissue volume and elasticity. Comprised of calcium-based microspheres, it helps fill unsightly folds and wrinkles in the face, while boosting the body’s production of collagen for months.

The positive effects of Radiesse®  injections are noticeable immediately and have impressive longevity, often upwards of a full year. Side effects of this treatment are rare, but when they do occur, they are very mild and short-lived.

Belotero Balance®

Belotero GraphicBelotero Balance® is an FDA-approved for moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. Dr. Preminger uses the hyaluronic acid based dermal filler for etched-in wrinkles like vertical lip lines, smile lines, smoker’s lines, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and chin wrinkles. It’s not the best product on the market in terms of adding volume and lift, but it is a superior choice in smoothing out superficial lines in hard-to-treat areas in a natural-looking way.

be the solution!

Unlike other dermal fillers, the Belotero Balance gel is elastic and cohesive, which allows an even spread across the target area — without lumps, bumps, or blue discoloration that are sometimes seen with Juvederm and Restylane. Belotero injections offer immediate results that last six to 12 months. If you’re looking for a firmer, more youthful, but natural look without going under the knife, Belotero may

While side effects are extremely rare, this product should not be used by patients with a history of allergies and anaphylaxis. Special precautions should be taken for patients with cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, or hives. A little swelling, bruising, and redness may occur following the injection, but should resolve without treatment within one week.

Lip Injections

A full, pouty lip is something coveted by virtually everyone. Luckily, it is also something that is easily achievable with the help of Dr. Preminger and an array of non-surgical lip enhancement options.

Several types of biological and synthetic dermal fillers including Restylane, Juvederm and others are regularly used to provide patients with enhanced volume and definition in their lips. The procedure is quick, lasting roughly 30 minutes, and the results can be enjoyed for up to six months. Discomfort during and after the injection is minimal, as a topical anesthetic is used to numb the area in advance, making lip injections an ideal way to get the glamorous appearance you have always desired.

 

 

Autologous fat transfer / microlipoinjection

If you are interested in regaining a youthful facial appearance but are reluctant to undergo a facelift or other surgical procedure, another worthwhile option to consider is that of facial fat injections. Also known as autologous fat transfer or microlipoinjection, this is a procedure in which your own fat is taken from another area of the body and injected into facial areas in need of added volume. Excess fat taken from the thighs, abdomen or buttocks can be used in this way to provide contouring to the chin, cheeks and even the lips. This process can be perfect for patients who may be allergic to, or particularly sensitive to, traditional filler products, but desire the results they can produce.

"Dermal fillers have never been more advanced, or the results more natural."

- B. Aviva Preminger, MD

Why choose dermal fillers?

Everyone deserves to look as young and vital as they truly feel, and by choosing injectable dermal fillers such as those described above, that goal is within easy reach. Facial fillers offer a convenient and effective way to achieve dramatic results without the high cost, risk of complications and potentially lengthy recovery time of a traditional facelift. Though it is certainly true that the results produced by dermal fillers are temporary in nature and maintenance injections will be necessary, their transformational effects make them worthwhile to so many.

If lines, wrinkles, folds and hollows in your face have begun to take a toll on your self-confidence, you owe it to yourself to take action. Dr. Preminger is committed to working collaboratively with each patient to determine which type of dermal filler best suits their needs and aesthetic objectives. There simply is no need to postpone feeling and looking your best.
