New York City and Manhattan, NY
When you hear the term facelift, you probably imagine extensive surgery that involves a lengthy recovery. While that sounds about right, for a traditional surgical facelift, Manhattan dermatologists at NY Skin RX offers non-surgical techniques that provide fabulous results. Find out how board-certified dermatologists, Drs. Debra Wattenberg and Ilyse Lefkowicz can tighten and tone your facial skin while smoothing those unwanted fine lines and wrinkles, all without a single incision and zero downtime.
Neurotoxins and injectable dermal fillers are a quick and easy way to smooth fine lines and unwanted wrinkles. There is a difference between a neurotoxin and dermal fillers, and their uses may vary.
Botox® is one of the most well-known neurotoxins, and has been used for decades. It actually gets its name from Botulinum A, a purified protein that causes temporary paralysis. That may sound a bit scary, but used correctly and injected by an experienced physician, Botox® can provide natural results without creating that infamous frozen look. Results should be noticeable within about a week or two and may last up to four months before touch up injections are needed. From the forehead down to the neck, Botox® injections can provide you with a youthful look without undergoing any surgery or downtime.
Dermal fillers, also referred to as soft tissue fillers, aim to add more fullness to areas where wrinkles and fine lines exist on the face. These injectables will smooth these unwanted signs of aging, creating a youthful look. NY Skin RX offers a variety of injectable soft tissue fillers, and each one has a specific use. Results can be expected to last between six months and a year, depending on each case.
Laser Therapy Treatments
Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to tone, tighten, and lift sagging skin on the brow area and around the eyes, cheeks, jawline, and neck. Ultherapy works by targeting the foundational layer of your skin and stimulating collagen production, which is the fountain of youth. While it may take a few months to see noticeable results, it is well worth the wait considering it does not involve any surgery and has zero downtime. Just as with most any other cosmetic treatment, you may require follow-up treatments to maintain your results.
Clear + Brilliant is another ground-breaking technology that we use to turn back the hands of time. If you want to erase the signs of aging, Clear + Brilliant is a laser resurfacing treatment that exfoliates your facial skin via pulsating laser beams, although this treatment is non-invasive. As those outer layers of skin are removed, it stimulates collagen, resulting in a clearer, smoother complexion that makes aging less noticeable. A single treatment takes only about 15-20 minutes, so you could be well on your way to a youthful glow while on your lunch break. And it is quite convenient that you can resume your routine after you leave our office. Clear + Brilliant, also called “Baby Fraxel,” is similar to Fraxel, although not as intense.
GentleWaves LED is known as our most gentle laser treatment option available, although it still can produce dramatic results. Its LED light stimulates cellular growth, collagen production, and elastin, the building blocks of youthful skin. Not only will your facial skin be firmer and toned with fewer wrinkles, but the LED technology also reduces pore size and improves skin texture. In some cases, we recommend following up a laser resurfacing treatment with the GentleWaves LED because it also helps reduce redness and inflammation associated with more intensive procedures.
