Wrinkle Treatment “Lunch Time Laser Treatment” in Manhattan
The ThermaScan™ system uses an infrared laser system to rejuvenate the skin. This laser targets the papillary dermis which is just below the surface so that it can treat facial wrinkles, as well as acne scarring. Because it is a non-ablative system, it can also treat the neck. This is much safer on the neck than using chemical peels.
A cooling system is employed to protect the outer layers of the skin so that the laser light can penetrate to the deeper levels to stimulate collagen growth. Some consider this a “Lunchtime Laser” treatment because it is quick and easy with virtually no side effects. The skin may stay red for a short time after treatment and may feel a bit tighter.
Treatment can be performed every four to six weeks. Multiple treatments are usually recommended to achieve the desired effect. “Touch-up” treatments are also recommended to sustain the continued growth of collagen.
Restylane – Restylane Lyft – Juvederm Restylane™, Restylane Lyft, and Juvederm™ Injectable Gel are Hyaluronic acid-based products that are great facial line fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body. Although Restylane, Restylane Lyft and Juvederm were approved for injection to the nasolabial folds, off-label use of these products has revolutionized facial rejuvenation.

The peri-oral facial aging can be improved with injectable fillers.
Lip augmentation by filling the white roll or injecting the lip muscle can augment it nicely. Filling the white roll of the lip can improve vertical lip lines that occur with age, sun exposure, and smoking. Injecting the vertical lines directly can improve them as well. This can also be combined with neuromodulator injections and laser peels.
Treating the marionette lines that run on the side of the mouth to the chin can be improved as well.
The peri-oral region can be filled to improve the downward appearance of the corners of the mouth that occurs with age.
The eye region is often the first area that shows facial aging, and hyaluronic acid injectable filler products can be used with great success in this region.
If the upper eyelids appear hollow from aging or after a blepharoplasty, injectable fillers can be used in this region to give a more youthful upper eyelid contour. Often Restylane™ is the preferred hyaluronic acid in this area because of its small particle size. This can be combined with neuromodulators like Botox™ and Dysport to enhance the appearance.
The lower eyelid and especially the tear trough region at the nasojugal groove, and the area between the lid-cheek junction are great areas to treat with filler product. Restylane™ is a great product to treat this delicate area because of the small particle size. This area is prone to bruise more than other regions because the tissues are thin and the area is very vascular. Treatment can also compliment the results of a lower lid blepharoplasty. Neuromodulators like Botox™ and Dysport can be used to treat the crow’s feet along the lateral eyelid as well.
Eyebrow and Corrugator Region
The eyebrow region can be treated to provide more fullness and lift the sagging brows and lateral hooding that commonly appear in the upper eyelid region with age. Neuromodulators like Botox™ and Dysport can help raise the lateral brow as well. Areas such as the “11” lines that are produced by overactive corrugator muscles are often best treated by the neuromodulators. However, with repeated motion lines can appear “etched” and injectable fillers can fill these lines to soften them.
Some patients develop temporal hollowing with age. This area can also be treated with facial injectable fillers.
Liquid Face Lift
The liquid facelift is a marketing phrase that refers to a non-surgical procedure incorporating both facial filler material such as Restylane™,Restylane Lyft™, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Sculptra along with using the neuromodulators, Botox™ or Dysport. As our knowledge of facial aging has evolved, these products have become more important. The filler materials can be used to fill the depressed cheeks that as a side benefit may improve the nasolabial folds (creases along the sides of the nose and mouth) indirectly. The nasolabial folds can be injected directly as well. Facial wasting along the sides of the mouth can also be treated by filler injections to treat the marionette lines. Jowling can be camouflaged to some extent with filler injections, and jaw line deformities can be improved as well. Areas around the eyes such as the tear trough can be filled to soften the “double-bubble” deformity of the lower lid -cheek attachments that appear with increasing age. In addition, cheek hollows and lines of the upper face can be filled. Temporal hollowing can also be treated in a similar manner. Even brow elevation can be accomplished with fillers. In addition, the neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport can treat overactive frontalis muscle that causes transverse forehead lines, overactive corrugators that lead to “11” lines, and lateral crow’s feet lines that are caused by the overactive orbicularis muscle. Treating the lateral brow with neuromodulators can create lateral brow elevation. In addition, the neuromodulators can treat some neck bands due to overactive platysma muscles. Lip lines, chin puckering, and overactive depressor anguli oris muscles of the lower lip region can also be treated. The key in using these products for facial rejuvenation is to not over do it. Some patients are over treated by their injector possibly because the injector has not been trained properly in aesthetic rejuvenation or the injector does not offer other procedures such as face lifting, brow lifting, or eyelid lifting procedures. Inevitably, some patients look “puffy” or like marshmallows. Too much product can make someone look as unnatural as someone who has had too much surgery.
