Cosmetic injectables like Botox and dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and restore lost volume in the face. The results are smoother, plumper and younger looking skin.
Dr. Preminger uses hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers such as Belotero Balance, Juvederm XC and Restylane-L –which can add fullness to the “parentheses” lines that frame the nose and mouth, enhance the lips, fill deep furrows between the brows, correct vertical lip lines, or restore a youthful look to other facial features. This non-surgical “lunchtime” treatment is well-tolerated by patients and can be performed with nothing more than local anesthesia. The results are virtually immediate, and depending on the filler used and area treated, can last from six to twelve months.
When wrinkles, creases and lines on the face are caused by repeated muscle contractions, Botox® can relax those muscles, helping to smooth out crow’s feet around the eyes, or “11’s” between the eyebrows. In addition, Dr. Preminger may recommend Botox® injections to address neck bands or fine lines around the mouth. A numbing cream can decrease sensitivity to this anti-aging treatment, which is performed in less than 25 minutes. The majority of patients find they need touch-up injections after 3-4 months, and if the treatment is maintained consistently, this time frame can lengthen to upwards of six months.
