Fillers & Injectables

cosmetic fillers long island | Dr. Elliot Duboys

Everyone wants to look youthful, but not everyone is willing or requires surgery.

Facial expression is an important part of defining our personality. Without facial movements, we could not laugh, smile, frown, or show any number of emotions. Over time, however, these natural movements, with the help of gravity and aging create permanent lines and wrinkles, which may deepen into furrows and ridges which can age your face disproportionately to the way you feel. Wrinkles and lines are most common around the eyes and mouth, forehead, and between the eyebrows, making you look older than you feel!

Many people desire a more youthful, rested appearance and hope to remove these signs of age, but prefer to do so through non-surgical means. Fortunately, there are a number of cosmetic procedures that do not involve surgery and are highly effective in improving the appearance quickly and easily. The most common of these are Dermal Fillers and Injectables. Injectable Dermal Fillers help soften facial wrinkles and lines, and can prevent natural face movements from further deepening these lines. With just one treatment of Fillers/Injectables, you will look refreshed and younger with minimal downtime.

Many injectable Fillers are made from substances found naturally in the body. Others are made of a synthetic composition that behaves in an identical manner as these natural substances, stimulating natural collagen production. They are all FDA-approved and considered safe for most patients. Fillers/ Injectables are injected directly into the lined, wrinkled area of the skin. They immediately restore volume, soften and lift lines and grooves, and create a smoother, more attractive facial contour.

Injectable Fillers are also used to add definition and volume to the lips.

Popular Dermal Fillers include Restylane® and Perlane®, which are both made of hyaluronic acid, a natural body substance. JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel is also made of hyaluronic acid, but is a more easily injected, smooth gel that may last longer. Radiesse® is an injectable synthesized from bone minerals. These Injectable Fillers work immediately to reduce the lines and marks of age, giving the face a more youthful, refreshed appearance that lasts for months.

All filler treatments are performed by Dr. Duboys.

Other wrinkles such as forehead furrows, those annoying lines between the eyebrows and crows feet may benefit from BOTOX® Cosmetic, a medication that selectively paralyzes the offending muscles causing these wrinkles. BOTOX Cosmetic has been used in millions of patients worldwide, and has a known success rate with minimal complications.
