BOTOX and Dermal Fillers
Manhattan facial plastic surgeon Jon B. Turk has devoted his career to providing his patients with the most comprehensive range of effective, advanced aesthetic treatments possible, encompassing both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Whatever the needs and goals of his patients, he strives to come up with individualized solutions that produce precisely the results they desire.
For patients who wish to rejuvenate their facial skin without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure, injectable treatments offer a potentially ideal solution. At Dr. Turk’s plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, and many other popular injectable treatments are available to patients seeking an alternative to facial plastic surgery. These minimally invasive treatments help to refine and smooth the facial skin, effectively turning back the clock without scars or downtime.
There is a reason that injectable treatments such as BOTOX® have become as popular as they are: they are safe, subtle, and remarkably effective. For further information about injectable treatments at our Manhattan facial plastic surgery practice, please contact Dr. Jon B. Turk today.
Perhaps the best known of all injectable treatments, BOTOX® Cosmetic reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by relaxing the muscles responsible for these signs of aging. BOTOX® Cosmetic is especially effective at improving the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. At our plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can be repeated every four to six months to ensure the continuation of the remarkable rejuvenating effects of the treatment.
Dermal Filler Treatments
At our facial plastic surgery center in Manhattan, injectables come in one of two basic forms: the muscle relaxant BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers such as Selphyl® and Restylane®. Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers actually remain under the skin for various lengths of time, where they replenish lost volume by taking the place of substances responsible for making skin supple and plump.
At the plastic surgery practice of Dr. Jon B. Turk, we offer the following dermal fillers:
- Selphyl® - This all-natural filler is made from the patient’s own platelets, which are rich in nutrients and help to promote the growth of new collagen
- Restylane® - This time-tested gel is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a protein found naturally in the human body; it restores volume to the facial skin for up to a year
- JUVÉDERM™ - Like Restylane®, JUVÉDERM uses hyaluronic acid to add volume to the skin, effectively reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and folds
- Radiesse® - This dermal filler uses calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally occurring substance in the human body, to add volume to the skin and promote the formation of new collagen
As with BOTOX® Cosmetic, the results of treatment with dermal fillers are consistently outstanding, although permanent. As the effects of these dermal fillers subside, treatments can be repeated.
Dr. Turk can administer dermal fillers by themselves or combine them with other treatments as part of a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation plan at his Manhattan office.
