New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Loeb offers Juvederm and other facial rejuvenation treatments at his private office suite on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
With age, the fullness of youth and the soft, voluminous transitions between facial features make way for sharper angles. As the soft tissues of the face slowly lose volume, the spaces between the features – the nasolabial (smile lines), melolabial (laugh lines), and nasojugal (tear trough) folds, as well as the marionette line – become more pronounced. Shadows appear, cheeks lose their prominence, and lips thin and begin to wrinkle. These are all common and unavoidable signs of aging, but the good news is that the effects may be minimized without surgery. Biodegradable, non-animal based injectable facial fillers, including Juvederm™ and Restylane©, pump volume back into the face, restoring the beauty and soft lines of youth.
During a private consultation at his Fifth Avenue office, top Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Loeb will explain the differences and benefits of Juvederm™, Restylane, and other injectable dermal fillers. Together, you will create a personal treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and desired outcome. Treatments are quick with minimal pain and virtually no down time.
Juvederm™ is comprised of injectable hyaluronic acid in gel form. It is injected directly into the facial tissue, especially around the mouth and nose, to smooth wrinkles and add volume to the skin. The Juvederm™ procedure takes about 30 minutes, and Dr. Loeb will administer a local anesthetic to reduce any pain or discomfort associated with the injection.
Notably, Juvederm™ injections contain slightly less water than Restylane©, so they may hold desired contours better in the short run. However, after a few days, there is little to no difference between the final results of either product. Juvederm™ injections, including Juvederm Voluma to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks, provide results for six months to one year or longer.
Like Juvederm™, Restylane© injections are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring acid that provides resilience and volume to your skin. This natural and biodegradable injectable is not derived from animal products, and provides instantaneous and long-lasting results. Restylane© is ideal for lip augmentation and as filler for frown lines, smile lines, crows feet, and other facial imperfections. The procedure itself takes approximately 30 minutes, and is administered with local anesthetic to reduce any discomfort. During the procedure, crystal-clear gel that is injected in small amounts under the skin. It is considered safe and gentle, and there is little to no risk of an allergic reaction with Restylane© injections, so no prior skin test is required. Results are visible immediately, and typically last six months to one year or longer.
Both Juvederm™ and Restylane© can be combined with other anti aging skin treatments, including Fractora™, BOTOX® or laser resurfacing, to improve results and further restore youth.
