Injectable Wrinkle Treatments
Dermal Fillers and Botulinum Toxin Injectables in New Windsor
Lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but for many, they are a source of embarrassment or self-consciousness. For men and women wanting to restore a more youthful appearance, Dr. Jonathan R. Fugo offers a variety of injectables and dermal fillers at his plastic surgery practice in New Windsor.
With each expression you make—from a smile to a frown—the muscles within your face are pulling and folding your skin. These repeated muscle contractions gradually leave behind lines and wrinkles as you age. Our injectables are designed to provide a solution for these dynamic wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin injectables like Botox have become a clear favorite for men and women wanting to put a stop to lines and wrinkles, with more than 6 million treatments administered each year. They work by relaxing the underlying facial muscle to soften your expressions and prevent the formation of various signs of aging, such as crow’s feet and frown lines.
We offer the following injectables at our New Windsor plastic surgery practice:
You will notice results within 5 days of treatment and will continue to see improvements in lines and wrinkles for up to 4-6 months. Patients will often undergo 2-3 treatments each year to maintain their youthful appearance moving forward.
Aside from aesthetic purposes, Botox can also be used for medical concerns such as excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the underarms, hands and feet.
Our dermal filler treatments include a series of products proven to help restore facial volume and minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines, and folds. This is done by adding volume beneath the skin to provide new foundation and smooth out the skin’s surface.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in abundance in youthful skin. It’s what gives your skin that firm, full appearance that is often associated with youth and beauty. As you get older, in addition to gradual, natural loss of facial bone volume, your skin gradually loses hyaluronic acid, resulting in a loss of volume and the formation of various signs of aging. Our hyaluronic acid based fillers are designed to replenish your skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid for an instant correction of several signs of aging, including nasolabial folds. Each hyaluronic acid filler is slightly different in its own way and Dr. Fugo will help to find the right one for you during your consultation. Hyaluronic acid fillers provide patients with immediate, lasting results and no downtime.
We offer the following hyaluronic acid filler treatments at our New Windsor practice:
- Restylane: One of the most popular fillers, Restylane is a clear hyaluronic acid gel filler that works to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production.
- Juvéderm: Another popular filler, Juvéderm is used in a similar way as Restylane.
- Belotero: Belotero is a slightly thinner hyaluronic acid filler, making it a great choice for precise correction of very fine lines and superficial wrinkles.
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid based filler that provides patients with a gradual improvement of their signs of aging over time. Throughout a series of 2-3 deep volume treatments, Sculptra helps to replace lost collagen and treat common concerns, including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Facial depressions
- Sagging jawline
Sculptra is a great option for patients looking for a more subtle, natural change in their appearance that happens over the course of a few months. With optimal treatment, results can last up to two full years.
Radiesse is another deep volumizing filler like Sculptra, but is made with a natural substance called calcium hydroxylapatite. When injected beneath the skin, calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres react with water to replenish volume and rehydrate your skin. Radiesse is effective for treating more severe wrinkles or furrows and can be used to fill in gaunt or hollow cheeks. Results have been proven to last for up to a year.
