Advances in technology have made it possible for Dr. Arnold Breitbart to provide effective wrinkle treatment and other cosmetic procedures without performing surgery. Patients are now able to experience improvements in their overall appearance without incurring the risks or the amount of recovery time associated with some surgeries. At his Long Island and Manhattan offices, Dr. Breitbart uses BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel, Voluma® injections, Vollure, Volubella, Restylane®, and other non-surgical treatments to help patients achieve smoother and younger-looking skin and lips without surgery.
Injectable dermal fillers can be used for wrinkle treatment and lip augmentation with excellent results. Dr. Arnold Breitbart offers many non-invasive treatments at his Manhattan and Long Island practice, including, JUVÉDERM™, Voluma, Vollure, Volubella and Restylane injections, to help patients achieve their aesthetic ideals without undergoing surgery.
Advances in dermal filler technologly has led to the development of longer lasting fillers. Juvederm and Restylane generally last 6-12 months. The newer generation of hylaluronic acid fillers such as Voluma, Vollure, and Volubella, however, can last even longer, up to 1-2 years.
JUVÉDERM™, Voluma, Vollure, Volubella and Restylane® are safe and effective gels made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the human body. Free of animal byproducts, these fillers pose minimal risk of allergic reactions. Dr. Breitbart may use Vollure, Volubella, JUVÉDERM™ or Restylane® to increase the fullness of lips. These fillers are especially effective at treating wrinkles and deep nasolabial folds, the creases between the outer nose and sides of the lips, thus rejuvenating the face with a smoother appearance.
JUVÉDERM™, Voluma, Vollure, Volubella, and Restylane® treatments offer immediate results. Wrinkles around the eyes, nose, and mouth are diminished to produce a younger-looking complexion, with hardly any recovery time and little risk. As a lip-enhancing filler, these treatments add fullness and shape to the patient’s lips for a sensual and long-lasting look. Results of Restylane® and JUVÉDERM™ treatment can last six to twelve months, after which patients can request additional treatment. The newer fillers, Voluma, Vollure, and Volubella can last even longer, up to 1-2 years.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to achieve a non-invasive facelift, also know as Y Lift. By selectively using different fillers, facial rejuvenation can be performed to give the face a more lifted, fuller look. For example, Voluma can be used to enhance the upper cheek to give more fullness to the cheekbone area and give a lifting effect. Juvederm and Vollure can be used to enhance the lips and soften the nasolabial folds between the outer nose and sides of the lips. Volubella can be used to fill under eye hollowness (tear trough) and reduce fine wrinkles of the lips around the mouth. The effect of these fillers can last up to 1-2 years.
Lip augmentation, or lip enhancement, can help patients achieve fuller and more defined lips, creating an attractive and sensual look. Using injectable fillers of Juvederm, Vollure, or Restylane, Dr. Arnold Breitbart is able to enhance the shape and size of the patients’ lips in just a few minutes without the need for surgery. The results are plump and luscious lips that can maintain their improved appearance for up to 1-2 years. The patient can choose to have additional injections as desired to prolong the effects. Lip augmentation can also be performed with fat injections, using fat removed through Liposuction. This fat is purified and then injected to give enhanced lip fullness.
Patients can return to normal activities within one day and the recovery time period is generally a few days or less. Lip augmentation has grown in popularity over the years and is appealing to many people who want to take off years from their face by adding fullness to their lips and reducing wrinkles. Lip augmentation can address laugh lines near the outer mouth, lipstick lines by the edge of the lip, as well as the inner lip.
