Aesthetic Facial Injectables
At Drs.

We have several types of dermal fillers available to enhance your cheeks, soften the appearance of wrinkles or even plump your lips. In addition, we also offer Xeomin for BOTOX to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and treat TMJ pain. Our patients can leave our Staten Island office with a healthy smile and a more youthful complexion.
Restylane-L is a dermal filler used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, folds and fine lines. The most common wrinkles and folds fixed with this treatment include the lines around the nose and corners of the mouth. It can also be used to enhance the fullness of lips. Restylane-L contains lidocaine to make the injections less painful and cause less discomfort than the original Restylane product.
The natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate with age. As a result, skin begins to sag and cause more prominent wrinkles and loss of volume in the face. Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler that is used to replenish the volume loss in the face and to treat wrinkles. This product is specifically designed to add volume to the midface and cheeks for a natural, youthful complexion.
Another dermal filler, RADIESSE is injected to add volume over the skin to reduce wrinkles near the eyes and around the mouth. When RADIESSE is injected, it not only provides immediate results, but stimulates the body to produce its own collagen. After time, the body absorbs the gel and is safety metabolized, however, your results stay due to the natural collagen that has formed. Results can last from one to several years.
Neuromodulator: Xeomin® for BOTOX®
Xeomin is an injection similar to BOTOX that helps reduce the visibility of moderate to severe facial wrinkles including frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. Xeomin causes a temporary reduction in muscle activity which makes it not only effective for treating wrinkles, but for also relieving TMJ pain. The drug is injected to specific areas in the jaw to relax the muscles, resulting in TMJ pain relief. Results generally last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. The main difference between Xeomin and BOTOX is that Xeomin is made with just one ingredient (botulinum) while Botox is manufactured differently and contains additives. Since there are no additives in Xeomin, the body is less likely to become resistant to the drug which commonly happens with Botox patients.
