Thanks to new technology, patients today have more choices than ever when it comes to facial rejuvenation. We still see plenty of women and men for facelift and other cosmetic surgery procedures. But our Brooklyn and Staten Island patients are also embracing nonsurgical options like BOTOX®, fillers, and lasers. We take pride in finding the best combination of procedures to suit each unique patient. From traditional surgery to noninvasive procedures, here are 4 popular options for achieving a more youthful appearance.
The facelift is one of the best surgical solutions for facial rejuvenation. It has the power to create dramatic results that many other treatments cannot achieve on their own. A facelift transforms your appearance by adjusting both the skin and the underlying tissues, carefully reshaping and contouring the lower half of the face. It can remove sagging skin and excess fat, reduce jowls, and improve wrinkles around the mouth and nose.
Our practice specializes in creating flattering, natural-looking facelift results. Depending on the techniques used, patients can expect to see results after a few weeks of recovery.
BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in America for a reason. It is a trusted, cost-effective way to fade the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The key ingredient in BOTOX relaxes facial muscles, preventing the repeated contractions that form wrinkles in the first place. BOTOX injections can minimize fine lines, deep forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and the vertical lines between your eyebrows.
Treatment takes less than an hour and requires no downtime afterward. Results generally last 3 to 6 months, with patients returning for touch-up sessions as needed.
While occasionally confused with BOTOX, dermal fillers are a separate category of injectables. Fillers are mainly used to restore lost facial volume. They can plump up thin lips, fill in hollowed cheeks, and treat fine lines and wrinkles. A few popular options include JUVÉDERM and RADIESSE.
Treatment sessions are short, but the specific length depends on the number of areas being addressed. You can expect to enjoy your new, refreshed look for between 6 months and 2 years.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing uses high-intensity lasers to stimulate collagen production and cell turnover. This treatment harnesses your body’s own healing process in order to naturally improve skin texture and fine lines. Laser skin resurfacing can fix many signs of aging, including wrinkles, sun spots, and old scars.
Skin resurfacing can even help long-term skin issues (like folds or sagging) caused by sun exposure. With consistent treatment, your skin becomes noticeably smoother and more evenly textured.
