A healthy glow and positive outlook go a long way toward making you feel good about yourself. At Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness in Midtown Manhattan, you can get facial treatments that rejuvenate your skin. When you face the day, you’ll know that your face looks youthful, wrinkle-free and confident. When you feel self-confident, there’s nothing you can’t do. Feeling good about yourself involves:
- Treating yourself right
- Eating a healthy, balanced diet
- Getting enough exercise
- Caring for your skin
As you age, though, sometimes you need a little help. No matter how well you take care of your skin, your genetics or past sun exposure makes you look older than you really are. At times like these, you can do with an aesthetic boost that comes from natural injectables. It’s not cheating nature; it’s making up for nature’s deficiencies.
In NYC, wrinkles and worry lines can damage more than your ego. They can make you look tired. The longer you let them go, the more defined they get. Any previous sun damage may amplify your wrinkles. Dermal fillers or cosmetic fillers, when applied by a trained expert like Dr. Natalya Fazylova, make your wrinkles disappear. There are several varieties of dermal cosmetic fillers, each with its own advantages:
You can get one of these injectables — you can’t mix them — when you visit the Radiance spa in NYC. Let Dr. Fazylova the best aesthetic specialist in NYC and her team of experienced aestheticians help you decide which dermal filler works best on your skin type and for your wrinkles. Learn more about each of these products below.
Juvederm is a suite of dermal fillers made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid gel. This substance naturally occurs in your skin. It’s perfectly safe if administered appropriately, and it has few side effects. Once expertly injected, it adds moisture, nutrients and fullness beneath the epidermal layer, which essentially softens your wrinkles to the point that they nearly vanish.
Although it’s not a permanent solution, the effects from Juvederm cosmetic filler products last up to one year. You may repeat the injections as needed with no risk, as long as you have a trained medical professional perform the injections. The Juvederm cost depends on how much of it you need. It’s less expensive to focus on one area of your face, such as your nasolabial lines, which run from your nose to the edge of your mouth.
Types of Juvederm
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006, Juvederm cosmetic fillers are specially designed for different areas of your face:
- Juvederm® XC was the original product, and it’s still perfect for eliminating mid-to-serious wrinkles around your nose and mouth. Seeing Juvederm before and after photos showcases the dramatic results possible.
- Juvederm Voluma® XC is perfect for plumping your cheeks to compensate for age-related thinning. It not only adds volume, but it also makes your skin smoother.
- Juvederm® Ultra XC creates fuller lips for a more balanced face. Lip augmentation is an increasingly popular choice, and Juvederm lips are considered perfect examples.
Every Juvederm dermal filler contains a little lidocaine, which makes the small injections much more manageable. Most people tolerate the procedure easily. You’ll see immediate results with Juvederm filler, although you have to avoid exertion, sunlight and alcohol for the first day. You also shouldn’t rub the cosmetic fillers treatment sites.
Another wrinkle-filler cosmetic filler made from hyaluronic acid, Restylance was one of the first such products approved by the FDA in 2003. It’s since become one of the more popular brands, meaning it has a long history of successful applications. Although it’s a different modification of hyaluronic acid, it works similarly to Juvaderm dermal fillers to introduce fullness and softness to your facial skin.
Restylane filler has different varieties for different applications:
- Restylane® makes your facial wrinkles disappear. It’s designed to work on your smile lines and the other wrinkles around your mouth and nose.
- Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine creates fuller cheeks and smooths out deeper facial folds. The lidocaine temporarily deadens the pain from the injections, so the process is easier on you.
- Restylane® Silk is a special formula for lip augmentation. It also works on wrinkles above your upper lip. One cosmetic treatment can make you look years younger.
- Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are new dermal filler products to treat moderate to deep facial wrinkles, especially your nasolabial lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth.
Restylane products deliver immediate results and last for up to one year, but you should be careful for 24 hours after your treatment. You also shouldn’t get a glycolic acid peel within one or two weeks of treatment. If you want a laser facial treatment, get it done before your Restylane filler procedure.
This cosmetic filler has been approved both for the wrinkles on your face, as well as for the back of your hands. Two products —Radiesse® and Radiesse®+ — deliver two kinds of dermal filler, one for fine lines and the other for fuller volume. Both are effective, show immediate results and last up to a year or longer. On your face, Radiesse smooths out facial wrinkles:
- On your chin
- At the corners of your mouth
- Beneath your mouth, like marionette and jowl lines
- Smile lines
On the back of your hands, Radiesse filler restores the volume beneath your skin lost due to aging or any other condition. After a treatment in NYC by the aesthetic specialists at Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness, the tendons and veins on the back of your hands are minimized and your skin looks younger and fuller.
Approved by the FDA back in 1999, Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid filler that promotes collagen growth. Collagen is produced by your body to rejuvenate your skin. As you age, collagen production slows. This cosmetic filler makes your facial wrinkles disappear while adding fullness to your cheeks.
Unlike the immediate results of other dermal fillers, Sculptra is designed to provide gradual results. You can get up to four sessions, once every three weeks. The gradual treatment melts away the years from your face, so people notice how healthy you look, but not the reason why.
Since this dermal filler product is administered in a different way, you need specially trained hands to inject it. The experts at Radiance spa in NYC have that training and the experience to handle the anti-aging injections comfortably for you. Sculptra is not for lip augmentation.
