Filler and Botox Injections

One of the most exciting innovations in modern cosmetic dermatology are injectables, which encompass dermal fillers, Botox injections, other neurotoxins and Kybella for fat. When it comes to rejuvenating the skin without going under the knife, Botox and fillers offer a minimally invasive alternative to plastic surgery. Our New York cosmetic dermatologists at Schweiger Dermatology have earned many years of experience in treating patients with dermal fillers and Botox to treat fine lines and wrinkles that detract from their looks. Botox injections help our cosmetic patients feel the way they look, which is very important for self-esteem.

 

Benefits of dermal filler treatments

dermal-fillers-injectionsDermal fillers, including Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra and many others. When we think of erasing wrinkles on the lower face and restoring volume we look to dermal fillers to help solve these issues. They help treat the smile lines around the mouth as well as wrinkles, dark circles and hollowness around the eyes. One of the newest fillers to hit the market is Voluma, which is considered a game-changer for non-surgical rejuvenation treatments. Voluma consists of a very malleable hyaluronic acid (HA) gel specifically designed to replace lost volume in the cheek area. Dermal fillers have the ability to do the following for the face and skin:

  • Restore lost volume to the cheek area
  • Minimize dark circles under the eye
  • Add a natural fullness to the lips
  • Reduce the smile and laugh lines around the mouth
  • Help give a youthful shape to the face
  • Restore lost volume in the hands, making them appear younger

What to expect from Botox injections and dermal fillers

One of the number one questions we get from patients is “Do Botox injections hurt?” The answer is no. Thanks to a very tiny needle, Botox injections feel like nothing more than a tiny prick. The most common side effects from Botox injections are swelling and bruising at the injection sites, which typically resolve in 24 hours. As long as you are receiving your Botox injections and dermal fillers from a dermatologist of licensed dermatology physician’s assistant, you are in safe hands. It’s essential to receive treatment from an experienced injector. Botox can last up to 4 months and dermal fillers can last from 6 months and up to two years. Botox and dermal fillers vary in price.
