Your face has a thin layer of fat under the skin that serves a good purpose: It adds just enough volume to lift skin away from underlying muscles and bones, while providing a cushion that makes you look healthy and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. As you get older, the fat thins out. At the same time, aging makes your skin lose some of its natural strength and elasticity. The combined impact may make the cheeks look sunken or hollow, lips look thin, and wrinkles more noticeable. When you need to replace lost fat, plump up skin, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers can do the job.
Dermal fillers are injected under the skin to correct lost volume. Dr. Lebowitz offers the following dermal fillers:
Juvederm: The Juvederm dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural part of your skin. Hyaluronic acid keeps skin hydrated, soft, and resilient by holding in moisture. When injected, it boosts volume, enlarges lips, and diminishes line and wrinkles around your nose and mouth.
Voluma® XC: This is also a Juvederm product that’s specifically designed to be injected into the cheek and midface area. It helps lift the skin and contour cheeks by adding volume that’s lost over the years. The effect of Voluma XC may last up to 2 years.
Before injecting a dermal filler, Dr. Lebowitz spends time talking with you about your expectations. He wants to understand the outcome you want to achieve, since your goals direct how he injects a dermal filler. You can have confidence that the results will be natural and artistic because Dr. Lebowitz has years of experience injecting dermal fillers. He knows the subtleties related to certain dosages and precisely where to inject it to get the look you desire.
After the procedure is over, you won’t need any downtime — you can get right back to your normal routine. You’ll look younger, yet people who don’t know you had the procedure probably won’t be able to put their finger on what’s different. That’s the natural improvement Dr. Lebowitz achieves.
