Line and Wrinkle Fillers
At Associates in Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Golosow offers the following contour and wrinkle fillers: Restylane, Hylaform, Radiance, Zyplast and Cosmoplast.
What are injectable fillers?
Sometimes called soft tissue augmentation, injectable fillers reduce the signs of facial aging. They can be used to restore facial contours, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases, plump thin lips and improve the appearance of some recessed scars.
What are the differences between fillers?
As we age, our skin loses collagen and facial lines and depressions can occur. Collagen fillers can, temporarily help replace this lost collagen.
Cosmetic Collagen Fillers – The FDA approved cosmetic collagen fillers that are used by Dr. Golosow at Associates in Cosmetic surgery are Zyplast and Cosmoplast. These cosmetic fillers can last 3 – 6 months. Zyplast is derived from cow protein and requires a skin test prior to treatment. Cosmoplast is derived from natural human collage, so a skin test prior to treatment is not necessary. Collagen fillers may be used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, around the lips and sides of the mouth, acne scars, and as lip fillers.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers – Hylaform and Restylane are products made from Hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar found in all living cells. These fillers attract and find water, hydrating your skin and giving it volume. Hylaform and Restylane immediately help smooth out wrinkles and last approximately 6 months. These fillers are often used to treat nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, frown lines and to add fullness to thin lips.
Radiance – Is a long lasting non-surgical wrinkle treatment that provides immediate results. At Associates in Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Golosow finds that Radiance is best suited for deep, well defined wrinkles or creases. Radiance can be highly effective for nasolabial folds.
Which Injectable Filler is Right for Me?
A personal consultation with Dr. Lorraine Golosow will determine which filler is best suited to meet your needs. The cost of your treatment is based on the type of filler as well as the amount needed.
Botox Cosmetic – Botox, performed by Dr. Lorraine Golosow, is an excellent non-surgical option for those with facial fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox injections can temporarily smooth out forehead lines, lines between the eyebrows (frown lines) and crows feet. The Botox solution safely relaxes specific muscles in the face that causes wrinkles. A Botox injection usually lasts 3 – 4 months and can be repeated as necessary when wrinkles reappear. No anesthetic is required and the procedure is usually performed in less than 10 minutes. To find out if you are a candidate for Botox cosmetic, contact Dr. Lorraine Golosow for your personal consultation.
