Our Botox and fillers in NYC effectively address wrinkles and restore fullness to the face, lips, and hands. The skin loses its youthfulness as a result of the aging process. Fillers and neuromodulators like Botox are excellent injectables for smoothing the skin and creating a more youthful look.

What Are the Benefits of Fillers?

Botox Injectable Fillers NYCOne of the major benefits of fillers in NYC is that they provide immediate results. Around the two-week point, the majority of people see their complete outcomes.

Most fillers also increase collagen and elastin production. As you become older, your collagen and elastin production naturally slows down. Hyaluronic acid, one of the key ingredients in many fillers, is known to boost collagen and elastin levels. Your skin will look and feel younger if you have more hyaluronic acid in your body.

Fillers are also favored by most patients because they can be combined with other procedures and have a low chance of causing complications. Most patients find filler treatments quite convenient, and they create subtle and long-lasting results.

Patients like that most fillers require little to no recovery time, allowing them to resume normal activities right away. They also appreciate the fact that they can receive this treatment during a single office visit (though some fillers do necessitate multiple sessions).

How Does Botox Work?

Depending on the types of wrinkles you have and where they’re located, Botox might be the better choice over fillers. For instance, patients presenting with forehead lines, “elevens” (the two parallel lines in between the eyebrows), and “crow’s feet” (the lines around the outer eyes) are usually excellent candidates for Botox.

These dynamic lines form due to constant scrunching and tension from the muscles underneath during repeated facial expressions. Over time, the skin in these areas can lose its elasticity and smoothness. Injecting a neuromodulator like Botox into these muscles temporarily stops them from contracting, allowing the skin above them to finally relax.

Who Are the Ideal Candidates for Injectables?

Candidates for Botox and filler therapy in NYC should be at least 21 years old and generally healthy. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an active skin infection in the treatment area, you may be ineligible for the therapy. Patients whose skin is prone to scarring are also not optimal candidates for filler treatment.

If you wish to plump up your thinning lips and volumize hollow areas, fillers are an excellent solution. Patients who want to diminish certain scars, reduce signs of aging, rejuvenate hands, or address deep creases can also benefit from the procedure. For those looking for a smoother upper third of the face and a reduction in frown lines and similar wrinkles, Botox might be the better fit. Either way, candidates should have a positive outlook and realistic expectations when it comes to injection therapy.

Different Types of Fillers

Collagen Fillers: Collagen fillers were the first filler products to be approved by the FDA. Collagen filler can be used to replace the natural collagen in your skin. They had the drawback of necessitating a skin test before the injection, as well as a one-month delay before the injection session. They are much less popular than newer types of fillers.

Collagen fillers are used to treat wrinkles in specific areas of the face. Collagen is significantly responsible for the skin’s suppleness; as a result, the skin appears more youthful. Collagen is also great for plumping your skin and improving the appearance of hollow scars. FDA-approved collagen fillers include Bellafill and Evolence.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers: Hyaluronic acid is found in large amounts in the eyes, joints, and skin. It is distributed naturally throughout the body. Hyaluronic acid attracts water to the skin, making it more moisturized.

Injectable hyaluronic acid produces instant results, and skin testing is not required. The FDA authorized these products as the first of the new generation of fillers.

Hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvederm reduce the appearance of moderate and harsh lines and wrinkles. They also give the face and lips structure and volume.

Fillers with Microscopic Beads: Microscopic beads are a low-cost filler ingredient that can be utilized as a bulking agent, a shelf-life extender, or for the controlled release of active substances. Radiesse and Artefill are included in this category.

Radiesse is a water-based gel that incorporates CaHA microspheres. These microspheres give a new structure to the skin tissues. Skin testing is not required.

In Artefill, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) synthetic microspheres are suspended in a bovine collagen gel, which also includes lidocaine. A skin test is required, and the injection must be delayed for at least one month after the skin test. Because the synthetic PMMA microspheres are not reabsorbed by the body, the effect lasts longer.

The Treatment Process

Prior to your injections, Dr. Moreano may administer a topical anesthetic cream, as well as local anesthetic injections. In some cases, there is no need to numb the injection site, since fillers like Juvederm already include the local anesthetic lidocaine.

A series of injections with the appropriate formula(s) will then be made into each treatment area in a careful, strategic pattern as needed for your desired results. The session could take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area and the number of sessions required.

When Will I See Results After Receiving Fillers?

Fillers produce instant results that are expected to last many months, if not a year or more. The treatment’s effectiveness and duration can be aided by a consistent skin-care program and a healthy lifestyle.

How Long Do the Effects of Botox Last?

Your body will gradually metabolize the Botox formula, causing the treated muscles to slowly regain their ability to contract. To continue enjoying the effects of Botox, patients typically schedule maintenance appointments every three to four months.

What Happens After Receiving Fillers or Botox?

Following dermal filler or Botox injections in NYC, patients can usually resume their normal activities right away. Dr. Moreano discourages strenuous activity for the first 24 to 48 hours to decrease swelling and bruising.

Mild redness and numbness are to be expected after the treatment, but these will fade in a few hours or days; applying ice or conducting a light massage can help.

How Much Do Injectables Cost?

The overall price is determined based on the type of injectable used and the number of treatments the patient requires. The cost of fillers and Botox is not covered by health insurance.
