The wonderful people of New York City are full of energy, remaining socially active and vital in the workplace for decades longer than in the past. Most would like to keep some of their high school appearance to go along with that physical and cerebral vigor. Today we have terrific non-surgical, and non- or minimally invasive techniques to restore youthfulness.
Dermal fillers require only brief treatment visits with little or no downtime. These injectable fillers rejuvenate appearance in three ways:
- Immediate volume. They add fullness right away, to plump lips; soften lines, wrinkles, and deep folds; and eliminate hollows. Juvederm, one of the products we use, is particularly effective for nasolabial folds from nose to mouth, and to bring up sad mouth corners. We also use it for lip enhancement and facial hollows at temples and cheeks.
- Continued improvement. Dermal fillers stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen, the fibrous protein that gives skin a firm, smooth base. In addition, Juvederm’s clear gel hyaluronic acid formulation grabs and holds many times its own weight in water. That hydrates skin with youthful plumpness.
- Combination treatment. Juvederm and other dermal fillers are an integral part of a combined program of non-surgical rejuvenation. We safely use fillers in conjunction with neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and skin tightening techniques such as Pellevé.
Our hallmark is to employ safe, FDA approved techniques, devices, and products in a customized rejuvenation plan that works with your skin type, lifestyle, budget, and time constraints. Most importantly, it meets your goals of a refreshed youthful complexion that doesn’t look “done.” Dr. Ron Shelton has more than 27 years of experience with fillers. We use Juvederm, Belotero, Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptra, (Voluma will be added once FDA-approved), other dermal fillers, and additional anti-aging techniques to skillfully erase the years for outcomes that look natural – not frozen or artificial.
