One of the most common treatments among our patients at New York Plastic Surgical Group is cosmetic injectables. This non-surgical method of facial rejuvenation can be highly effective for many individuals who wish to turn back the clock. Signs of facial aging – such as fine line, wrinkles, and volume loss – can be dramatically reduced, if not completely disappear, with the advanced injectable formulas available today.
Our team offers injectables that range from neurotoxins to fillers to volumizers. Each type is designed for a specific purpose. Neurotoxins, for example, are meant for patients with overactive facial muscles that leave permanent lines, such as on the forehead. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are meant to smooth areas where collagen and fatty tissue may have been lost with time, causing wrinkles to develop. Volumizers are also meant to enhance areas of the face, but they provide more of an augmentation to accomplish goals like restoring definition in the cheeks or plumping the lips.
When you come in for your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will perform a physical exam to determine the most beneficial treatment(s) for your needs. Although candidates will vary for each type of injectable, the best results are typically achieved on those who are in generally good health, who wish to diminish signs of aging, and who are seeking a non-surgical method of facial rejuvenation.
