Injectable fillers have developed and improved greatly since they were initially discovered. They provide a minimally-invasive alternative to surgical procedures such as facelifts, while still providing a great anti-aging and rejuvenating effect. There is a wide range of dermal fillers available that target specific concerns.
As a well known New York cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank offers one of the widest ranges of the newest dermal fillers. He has extensive experience with dermal fillers and can help each patient determine which solution is right for them. Please contact us for a consultation at our Manhattan office in NYC if you would like to learn more about any of these injectable fillers.
Asclera® is a simple and minimally invasive treatment for these leg veins by using the body’s own natural methods of healing. The treatment works by damaging the problematic blood vessels, which causes the veins to clot and eventually healthy tissue forms.
The botulinum toxin is injected in miniscule amounts to freeze the muscles and reduce the signs of aging. Botox® is used for reducing wrinkles, laugh lines, crow’s feet, and more. Botox® can even be used as a treatment for hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating.
Dysport is an injectable treatment for wrinkles, very similar to Botox, and in many cases may be a superior alternative. The active ingredient in Dysport is the same botulinum toxin in Botox, but the formulation makes Dysport more friendly to those who have had allergic reactions to Botox.
Juvéderm™ is the latest and greatest FDA-approved formulation of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin and provides moisture and volume that is eventually lost in the aging process. Juvederm is used for many areas of the face including the lips and under-eye areas.
Kybella – Double Chin Removal
Kybella, a promising new non-invasive treatment that addresses moderate-to-severe double chins. When injected, Kybella attacks fat cells, which are then naturally reduced from the body, resulting in a more sculpted chin. If you want reduce fat deposits under the chin, you may be the ideal candidate for Kybella injections.
Microdroplet Silicone Injections
Microdroplet silicone injectable fillers have been safely used for decades to rebuild tissue in the treatment site. This procedure is thus suitable to helping fill in not only wrinkles, but scars, lips, and facial contours by spurring the body’s natural collagen production.
Perlane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, and part of the Restylane family of products. Like Restylane, Perlane® works by replenishing the hyaluronic acid that is naturally produced by the body, helping to keep the skin smooth and voluminous.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler composed of a water-based gel in which small calcium microspheres are suspended. Radiesse® is FDA-approved and bio-compatible, which makes it more suitable for patients who may have allergic reactions to other dermal fillers.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler, a substance naturally found in the skin that keeps it plump and hydrated. Restylane® works by not only immediately filling out lost volume and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, but also by spurring the body’s production of collagen.
Sculptra™ is an injectable filler that spurs the body’s natural collagen production to help provide natural, gradual anti-aging results without the surgical commitment of a facelift. Made from poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra™ is biodegradable and biocompatible.
As natural hyaluronic acid production decreases with age, one of the most apparent effects is the natural hollowing of the cheeks. Voluma XC is the only hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA exclusively for use in the cheeks.
Like Botox, the active ingredient in Xeomin is the botulinum toxin. Xeomin differs from Botox because the toxin is then put through an intensive purification process, in which the complex proteins are reduced.
