Overview of Nonsurgical Services
Plastic surgeons offer surgical and nonsurgical treatment options. Nonsurgical treatments are employed to enhance appearance and self esteem.
Dermal Fillers are suitable to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. Hyaluronic acid(HA) fillers are a popular choice because they are compatible with the body, and can be adjusted easily. HA fillers are used to support facial structures that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. HA fillers bring water to the surface of the skin, to keep it fresh and plumped.
Dr. Waltzman prefers these Non-HA fillers Radiesse® and Sculptra®.
- Radiesse works by stimulating your body to make new collagen, and is used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth).
- Sculptra is an anti-aging facial injection that provides subtle results over time. It works by replacing lost collagen, and is useful to correct shallow to deep wrinkles and folds like smile lines, marionette lines and chin wrinkles.
Dysport® and Botox®
Dysport and Botox are neuromodulators. These injectables work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles when the muscles are used- the muscles of expression. When these muscles are relaxed, contraction-induced wrinkles are diminished.
Kybella is the newest approach to reducing your double chin. It is an injectable that contains a fat dissolving substance, which non-surgically destroys fat cells. Because it has affinity for fat cells only, it does not harm the surrounding tissues. Ask us about this ground breaking treatment.
Autologous fillers are also called fat injections, fat transfer, or fat grafting. These fillers are created out of your own fat that is harvested during liposuction. They are used to fill out facial lines and creases, to restore attractive contours to your cheeks, chin, and under-eye area. They are also perfect to add volume to your lips, as well as to fill hollow areas of the face, acne scars, to add volume where it has been lost.
Your hands can giveaway your age. Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved product for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the hands. Radiesse restores volume to the hands providing smooth, natural-looking results that can be seen immediately and can last up to 1 year.
