Injectable Skin Treatments
Injectable skin treatments are a quick, simple, and affordable way to reduce signs of aging. Dr. Fredric Newman offers several types of injectable skin treatments at our Darien, CT, plastic surgery practice. These minimally invasive options can soften lines, reduce wrinkles, and restore youthful skin volume. They can even be used as an alternative to rhinoplasty to correct imperfections on the nose. Most injectable solutions involve little to no downtime, and application is virtually painless. Dr. Newman is highly experienced in the use of injectables, and was among the first doctors in the United States to offer collagen injections.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®
The repeated movement of facial muscles can lead to deep lines and wrinkles. These signs of aging can become especially prominent between the eyes, around the lips, and on the forehead. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport™ are injectable treatments approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause lines. This treatment can result in a more relaxed expression and youthful-looking appearance.
Over time, the treatment can not only address existing wrinkles but also prevent the formation of new wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport™ injections can be administered in just 15 minutes, and require little to no downtime. The injection is performed using a very fine needle and a topical anesthetic, eliminating discomfort. Results can also last as long as three months, and are easily maintained with periodic follow-up treatments.
If you would like to minimize signs of aging, such as a loss of volume in the face, but are not ready for facial cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift, consider dermal fillers. We offer a full range of injectable fillers, including Radiesse®, Sculptra® Aesthetic, JUVÉDERM®, and BELOTERO BALANCE®. Unlike BOTOX Cosmetic® and Dysport™, which immobilize the muscles that cause wrinkles, dermal fillers add volume to fill lines or enhance facial contours, creating a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Radiesse® is a filler made of an organic compound mixed with a water-based gel. This injectable is especially effective for filling in nasolabial folds or smile lines. The effects of Radiesse® are long-lasting and provide natural-looking results.
An injectable made of poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra® Aesthetic promotes collagen growth for fuller, smoother skin. Sculptra® Aesthetic is used to add volume to areas that have become sunken or hollowed over time, such as the cheeks, chin, and temples. Although optimal results typically take between three to four sessions to achieve, patients can expect the effects of their treatment to last for up to two years.
With injectable treatments, achieving a refreshed appearance is quick and easy.
The JUVÉDERM® family of products can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns. JUVÉDERM® XC is recommended for moderate and severe facial wrinkles, such as the nasolabial folds. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC is a type of gel designed specifically to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks. For patients who would like a more voluptuous pout, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC can augment the lips.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is an injectable filler containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that plays a key role in keeping skin hydrated and looking youthful. BELOTERO BALANCE® is often used to treat laugh lines. Additional treatment areas include chin wrinkles and vertical lip lines that can develop around the mouth with age.
