Dermal fillers are becoming increasingly targeted toward specific uses, and the results have never been better.
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 XC®
- An 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 it 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®
- Another member of the hyaluronic acid family of facial fillers, Juvederm Voluma® is designed to add tissue volume to facial areas that have sunken or become hollow due to aging or substantial weight loss. 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 that 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.
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.
