BOTOX® and Fillers
New Jersey Skin Treatments by the Best Plastic Surgeons
Unwanted lines and wrinkles in your face can make you look older, appear unapproachable, and can make you uncomfortable in your own skin. There are several different FDA-approved treatments for these conditions which include BOTOX® and injectable NJ face fillers like Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane and Perlane, all of which are offered at our New Jersey office.
BOTOX® is medically-purified from of a natural bacterial protein called Botulinum Toxin. It has been used for centuries to produce muscle paralysis and, recently, to temporarily eliminate wrinkle lines through the aforementioned muscle paralysis. BOTOX® works by binding the nerve endings of targeted spots. This prevents chemical transmitters that activates muscles and stops them from contracting. The NJ BOTOX® procedure is perfectly safe and virtually painless. The injections of BOTOX® are made using ultra-fine needles placed directly into the muscles that are causing the unwanted wrinkles or lines.
Juvederm is a dermal filler gel made of hyaluronic acid. The acid is smooth and light for easy injections and quick results. Radiesse is a synthetic filler that stimulates the natural production of collagen in skin. It is made up calcium and hydroxylapatite microspheres in a water-based gel composed of minerals similar to that found in your bones.
Restylane is a naturally occurring biodegradable polysaccharide that resembles collagen and has been used in the US for nearly a decade. The material is longer lasting than its competitors and causes less hypersensitivity reactions. Restylane is a hyaluronic acid produced by fermentation and metabolized by the body. Perlane contains purified hyaluronic acid, a sugar naturally found in your body that works with collagen to keep skin smooth. Unlike collagen, however, Perlane can bind with water, allowing it to perform up to 60% longer.
