Injectable Fillers in Long Island
The Ophthalmic Center team believes in offering our patients a choice in their cosmetic treatment. We know that everyone ages differently and has a unique identity, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
To help accommodate a diverse group of needs, we offer versatile products called injectable fillers. These products are great for minimizing signs of aging and restoring a youthful quality to the facial structures. Upon consultation, we can recommend the filler that is best for your specific anti-aging needs.
All of our fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally found in your skin and other tissues. It gives elasticity to the joints, shape to your eyes and volume to your skin. Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm gels add volume where your body’s own supply of hyaluronic acid has been depleted. Once hyaluronic acid-based gels are injected into the treatment area, they quickly smooth out, and the skin appears rejuvenated.
Fillers are popular because they provide rapid results with little downtime and minimal side effects. A treatment can be conveniently scheduled on your lunch break, and you can immediately return to work. The results are almost immediately noticeable and last for several months. Touch-up treatments prolong the longevity of the results.
Restylane is a cosmetic injectable designed to add volume and fullness to the skin. It is ideal for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth. It can also be used to plump up the lips or fill in the tear troughs. When injected into strategic points around the face, Restylane provides a natural cushion to support the facial structures. Results with Restylane are temporary and usually last about six months. Repeat treatment is recommended to maintain the effects.
Perlane is a member of the Restylane family and similar in formula. Also made from hyaluronic acid, Perlane is designed to add volume and fullness to the skin and correct moderate to severe wrinkles. Perlane is often used to smooth deep nasolabial folds and add shape to thin or small lips.
Juvederm is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, thinning lips and loosening skin. It can also “plump up” the lips, sculpt the cheeks and restore a youthful oval shape to the face. Because it is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed. Juvederm comes in three formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Results last about six to nine months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
How Long is an Injectable Filler Procedure?
Our fast and easy filler treatment is often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure.” The appointment itself can be as short as 15-30 minutes, which is enough time to fit in a busy schedule. The results are noticeable almost immediately without any discomfort or swelling, and there is no recovery period required. Patients are allowed to return to their normal activities right after they leave our facility.
