Located in central New Jersey Dr. Mark Glasgold and Dr. Robert Glasgold are acknowledged as world experts in volumetric rejuvenation and have authored textbooks, chapters and lectured throughout the United States on this topic. Each of them has performed thousands of filler treatments and believes it is an important part of the facial rejuvenation process. Injectable fillers are much more than smoothing lines and their sophisticated understanding enables dramatic results often with just a few syringes of filler. They can treat lower and upper eyes, temples, cheeks, and jawline in addition to the more standard lines.
There are other advantages to having experienced doctors perform these treatments. Cannulas are used in most of their treatments and allow much greater artistic freedom. The cannula injection is significantly less painful, has a much lower incidence of bruising and virtually eliminates the possibility of the devastating complications of injectables, an intravascular injection.
Primarily only Hyaluronic acid products are used for injections. They offer the benefit of long term results with some treatments lasting for years and the safety of a material which can be easily dissolved in case of a complication, infection or result that is unsatisfactory. They offer all of the hyaluronic acid products available, Juvederm, Voluma, Belotero, Restylane and Perlane and will recommend which is best for you based on the special properties of each one.
With a thin consistency, Belotero is different from similar dermal fillers composed of Hyaluronic Acid. Its makeup is perfect to treat the delicate areas around the eyes and mouth. As Belotero bonds with existing cells, tissues are quickly plumped to a healthy, youthful appearance. Smile lines, vertical lip lines, and Marionette Lines can see marked improvement with Belotero.
Belotero injections are not considered painful, taking than half an hour to complete. The results can be seen right away, and will remain for six to twelve months. The side effects of Belotero can include mild redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site.
Botox is the most popular noninvasive treatment performed today. Composed of Botulinum Toxin, Botox will paralyze targeted muscles, eliminating dynamic wrinkles (caused by repetitive muscle movement). These include Forehead Lines, Frown Lines, and Crow’s Feet. When Botox is paired with a dermal filler, optimal facial rejuvenation can be seen.
Botox is administered with a very small needle, and a treatment will take less than 15 minutes in our New Jersey office. The results from Botox will begin to show after several days, but will take two to three weeks to become fully visible. After three to four months, a repeat Botox treatment will be necessary to maintain results.
Made from Botulinum Toxin, Dysport can be used to correct the facial lines that are due to repetitive muscle movements. After it is injected, Dysport fans out easily across the tissues, making it extremely effective in treating spidery wrinkles, such as Crow’s Feet at the corners of the eyes.
Dysport temporarily freezes muscles in the desired area, reducing wrinkles for up to four months. Results are not immediate, but can be fully appreciated after two to three weeks. Dysport should only be administered by an experienced provider, so as to avoid drooping of the eyelid or eyebrow
The go-to dermal filler, Juvederm is a smooth gel composed of Hyaluronic Acid. As the tissues of the face age, volume and elasticity is lost. Juvederm can successfully address these changes by improving the appearance of Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines, as well as replacing shape and volume in the cheeks and along the jawline.
For patient comfort, Juvederm is pre-mixed with Lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Each session will take less than half an hour to complete. The results from a Juvederm treatment can be seen immediately. After any initial swelling and redness subsides, the full benefits will be apparent, and can last from nine to twelve months.
Perlane is a dermal filler, comprised of Hyaluronic Acid. Triggering the body’s natural production of Collagen, a building block of healthy skin, Perlane can effectively improve the look of moderate creases in the skin. Lost facial volume can be replaced with Perlane, as well, restoring healthy contours to the cheeks and jawline.
A Perlane session will take less than an hour. The treatment is not considered painful, although a local anesthetic may be used to maximize patient comfort. The benefits from Perlane can be seen immediately and can last up to one year. No downtime is necessary after treatment; patients are free to return to their normal activities the same afternoon.
Restylane is a dermal filler, designed to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds. The clear gel formula means a smooth, consistent plumping of deep creases. Restylane can improve the appearance of scars from acne or trauma, as well as replace lost facial volume.
While there is no downtime necessary after the injections, Restylane will remain malleable under the skin for the first 72 hours after treatment. It is vital that patients do not rub the treatment area during this time. The results from Restylane will last around nine months, after which time, a repeat treatment will be needed.
Sculptra is a unique dermal filler, specially designed to improve the look of the shallow wrinkles and lines that result from diminishing facial volume. Made from Poly-L-Lactic Acid, Sculptra will plump facial tissues by replacing lost Collagen stores. The filler can be used to improve Nasolabial Folds, sunken temples, hollow cheeks, and a thin chin/jawline.
Injections from Sculptra are not considered painful, as the filler is premixed with Lidocaine. The results will gradually take three or four weeks to develop, as the body’s Collagen supply is naturally replaced. Normally, three Sculptra treatments are necessary for optimal results. These should be spaced approximately four weeks apart. The results from Sculptra can last two years or longer.
Juvederm Voluma XC is the first dermal filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to replace lost facial volume throughout the cheeks and the jawline. The filler can safely restore healthy, attractive facial contours. Comprised of Hyaluronic Acid, Voluma will encourage the body’s own production of Collagen, further improving the appearance.
A Voluma treatment will take from 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Results can be seen immediately after treatment. These will continue to further improve over the next several months, as the body begins to naturally replace its Collagen. Premixed with an anesthetic, Voluma injections are not considered painful.
The newest member of the Botulinum Toxin family; Xeomin was approved by the FDA in 2011. This injectable can reduce lines and wrinkles due to repetitive muscle movements. Improving the look of Crow’s Feet, Forehead Lines, and Frown Lines, both deep and shallow creases can benefit from Xeomin .
Created without the use of any additives, Xeomin has a smaller chance for an allergic reaction than other similar products. Injections with Xeomin only take a couple minutes in the office. The results will begin to show in a couple weeks, and can last between three and four months.
