With options like JUVÉDERM® and Voluma, the women and men who visit our Englewood, NJ practice have discovered that wrinkle treatments are easier than ever before. Unlike many other plastic surgery and medical spa practices, Dr. D’Amico personally performs all injectable treatments instead of having them done by an aesthetician or other office staff member. In many cases, Dr. D’Amico combines dermal fillers with BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. BOTOX relaxes facial muscles while fillers fill in the creases. In general, BOTOX is used to address wrinkles and lines on the upper portion of the face while dermal fillers improve the appearance of lines on the cheeks and around the mouth.
Another injectable offered is Kybella for Double Chin Reduction. This is a non-invasive procedure administered under the chin for fat reduction. Although it is not intended to fill wrinkles, it can be used with our dermal fillers to achieve maximum results and provide you with a renewed, youthful appearance.
JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is a soft gel made of hyaluronic acid. It is manufactured by the same company that makes BOTOX Cosmetic, and it is used to restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth. It’s also been found extremely effective for plumping lips. It can last up to about 12 months*.
JUVÉDERM® Voluma can be used for volume loss in the face.
How It’s Done
The injections themselves take only about 15 minutes to half an hour, and the results of fillers appear immediately*.
You might have a slight redness around the injection site for the first two hours. It will be obvious to you when you should come in for another treatment, as the wrinkles will begin to reappear. Because our office is very busy, we suggest that you make the appointment for your next treatment when you have each treatment.
Whatever products are used, injectables are very effective in reducing lines and wrinkles and adding volume to your face. Dr. D’Amico will review your skin’s condition to establish the best treatment for your needs. The first step in achieving your cosmetic goals is to request a consultation with him. Serving the New York metro area Dr. D’Amico enjoys spending time with you one-on-one to understand your objectives and give his professional opinion about the procedures that are best for you. You will never feel pressured to choose surgery and you will even have a second consultation visit (included with your fee) to bring along family or loved ones and ask follow-up questions. The consultation fee is applied toward any surgical procedure you choose. We are also happy to schedule appointments by phone.
