The Medical Day Spa at Bodian Dermatology is pleased to offer several injectable, non-surgical treatments for smoother, more youthful-looking skin. These treatments are safe, painless, and require virtually no downtime. We offer Restylane®, JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel, Radiesse®, Sculptra® , and Evolence at our practice serving Long Island, Manhattan, Queens.
Restylane® is an injectable dermal filler that is designed to restore a youthful-looking glow by filling in lines and wrinkles. The main ingredient in Restylane® is hyaluronic acid, a substance found in the body that keeps skin nourished and well-hydrated. As part of the normal aging process, the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid begins to diminish over time. Restylane® filler injections help to slow down and reverse the signs of aging by increasing the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid. The extra hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules that provide support to skin that has begun to droop or sag. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed away and the skin appears supple and smooth.
Restylane® treatment can be completed in less than an hour. No downtime is required; patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. Results are natural-looking and typically last for about six months. BOTOX® Cosmetic is another popular non-surgical treatment at our practice that can smooth away wrinkles for a more youthful-looking appearance.
JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is offered at our practice to smooth away lines and wrinkles and to restore a youthful-looking glow. This injectable filler is composed of hyaluronic acid just like Restylane®; however, the hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is biosynthesized unlike with bovine or avian tissues. As a result, JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel is safe for individuals who otherwise might be allergic to other injectables. Patients are not required to take an allergy test prior to receiving treatment with JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel.
The benefits of JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel can be noticed almost immediately and can last for months or even years to come. Results with this injectable are typically longer than the results that can be expected with other types of dermal fillers. We invite you to schedule an appointment to discuss JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel with our skincare professionals and to determine if this injectable is the most appropriate choice for your individual needs.
Radiesse® is an injectable skin filler that is composed of a gel-like solution containing tiny particles called microspheres. The microspheres in Radiesse® contain calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. These microspheres help reduce or eliminate the signs of aging in two ways.
First, when injected into the targeted treatment areas, they provide volume to the skin so that lines and wrinkles are filled out and smoothed away. Then, approximately three months after treatment, the microspheres begin to stimulate the production of new collagen, the protein that gives skin its shape and elasticity. This protein is vital for youthful-looking skin, but collagen production decreases as part of the normal aging process. Radiesse® can slow down or reverse this process by providing the body with the collagen it needs for smooth, supple skin.
Radiesse® can help smooth away even deep lines and wrinkles, such as the ones that run from the corners of the nose to the edges of the mouth.
Sometimes referred to as a "liquid facelift", Sculptra® is a highly effective non-surgical treatment for facial rejuvenation. This treatment was approved by the Federal Drug Administration in 2004 for individuals who have lost facial fat, often due to HIV or AIDS. Sculptra® is widely used on patients without these conditions to reverse or eliminate some of the most prominent signs of aging, including deep facial wrinkles and fine lines.
Sculptra® treatments take approximately thirty minutes to complete. Once the injections are administered, polyactic acid, the main ingredient in Sculptra®, begins to stimulate the production of new collagen in the targeted areas. Wrinkles begin to disappear as new collagen is produced and facial volume is added. Results often continue to improve for up to six weeks after treatment and typically last two or more years.
For more information about Sculptra® and to determine if it is the injectable treatment most appropriate for your needs, please schedule an appointment at our dermatology practice.
Evolence® is an advanced new dermal filler that reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles and restores skin to more youthful-looking contours. Evolence® treatment offers immediate results that can last for up to one year. The dermal filler is made of natural collagen that is used to replace the collagen that has been lost as part of the normal aging process. Evolence® is an effective treatment to smooth away the "smile lines" that run from the nose to the mouth.
