Botox is probably the most common injectable used by cosmetic surgeons today for treatment of unwanted wrinkles. It has been used for years by millions of patients world wide. It is especially helpful for wrinkles between the eyebrows, the forehead, crows feet around the eyes and “smokers lines” around the mouth. It decreases the muscles which cause wrinkle formation from moving, in these areas and lasts several months. There is no down time and minimal pain. The procedure takes just minutes.
Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are injected directly into deep lines and wrinkles primarily in the lower facial area such as the lips, nasolabial folds ( the “parentheses” lines on the sides of the nose separating the nose from the cheek), as well as the lower mesolabial lines ( sometimes called the marionette lines), which form in the cheek/chin area with aging. The filler is made of a natural protein called hyaluronic acid, which is a gel like substance that lasts for several months and in some cases years. There are numerous variations of fillers, depending upon the area to be treated. There are even fillers now to augment the cheek bones and give fullness and lift to the mid face area that comes with aging. The experts at Authentic Plastic Surgery will help guide you to the various options available to you.

“Dr. P is terrific as are all of his associates. They are friendly, very patient and helped make me feel at total ease, without pressuring me.
