Never have there been more options for skin rejuvenation than there are today as the latest technology produces more effective products than ever before to help prevent and reverse the signs of aging. New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas W. Loeb offers all of the latest injectables, wrinkle fillers, lasers, and other skin treatments at his Fifth Avenue office on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
In private consultation, Dr. Loeb will thoroughly review each of these skincare options and recommend the most appropriate combination of treatments that will work best for you.
While plastic surgery can be used to alter the body contours and facial features, anti-aging skin care treatments also offer patients the chance to change their outward appearance without “going under the knife.” Unlike surgical procedures, these skin treatments are considered non-invasive and require little to no downtime.
Skin care treatments address common concerns such as:
Skin treatments may be performed alone or in conjunction with other surgical or non-surgical procedures for a more dramatic effect. For example, Dr. Loeb may recommend Botox as a compliment to eyelid surgery for more pronounced improvement around the eyes.
Among the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments today are injectable options specifically designed to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These procedures, ranging from Botox to dermal fillers, produce smoother, younger looking skin. Most treatments take just a few minutes to complete, depending on the size of the area and the depth of the wrinkles to be corrected. Injectables are delivered with a mild topical anesthetic, and most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately afterward.
Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers (“wrinkle fillers”), such as Restylane and Juvederm, offer a safe, natural-looking way to smooth skin from the inside out. Other fillers like Sculptra (poly-L-lactic acid) and Radiesse promise even longer-lasting results. Botox, the most established of the injectable skin treatments, works by relaxing muscles of the face that lead to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Fractional and laser skin resurfacing as well as dermabrasion are all effective means of achieving skin rejuvenation. Dr. Loeb provides Ultherapy, Fractora and photo facials to minimize the appearance of fine lines and pigment changes caused by aging, rosacea or sun damage. These treatments work both at and beneath the skin’s surface, stimulating the body’s own production of collagen for a softer, smoother complexion over the long term. Like injectable treatments, these types of non-invasive procedures allow patients to return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Laser resurfacing and dermabrasion procedures work a little deeper into the skin, removing the outer layer of skin cells to reveal smoother, younger looking skin underneath. Laser resurfacing primarily works on fine lines and shallow scarring, while dermabrasion can eliminate the appearance of deeper wrinkles, uneven skin tone and age spots. Though considered a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, patients who undergo dermabrasion can expect some mild burning and itching as the skin heals to reveal a beautifully restored complexion.
Dr. Loeb performs all of these procedures at his private Manhattan surgical suite on Fifth Avenue. Procedure times vary based on the size of the treatment area.
