Voluma, Radiesse or both? Morristown, New Jersey. Voluma is the new filler on the market and it is made to enhance the cheek volume and fullness. I am using several fillers in my practice in Morristown New Jersey and this is a welcome addition to our armamentarium. I generally use Restylane for the lips, eyelids, tear through and to fill larger wrinkles. I use Belotero for the fine lines like the vertical lines in the upper lip. Radiesse and Perlane are used in the nasolabial folds and to volumize the cheeks. Radiesse was my go to filler for restoring volume [...]

BOTOX – NECK BANDS NEW JERSEY

2017-01-22T19:44:18+00:00August 22nd, 2013|Categories: Facial rejuvenation., News, Restylane, Juvederm, Botox (fillers and neuromodulators)|

Giving yourself a smooth neck can make you look years younger. Neck bands and wrinkles are an unfortunate part of aging, but they don’t have to stay with you forever. In order to fight these using Botox and other methods, you’ll first need to learn more about them.  The vertical bands of muscle that form on the neck are called neck bands or platysmal bands. As we age, our platysma muscles – large muscles that go from the jaw area down to the top of the chest – loosen and separate. With repeated use, they become permanently tensed, forming corded neck bands. [...]

GUMMY SMILE – BOTOX VS. SURGICAL CORRECTION NEW JERSEY

2017-01-22T19:44:18+00:00August 16th, 2013|Categories: News, Restylane, Juvederm, Botox (fillers and neuromodulators)|

Before correcting a gummy smile – the term for a smile where too much of the gums show – plastic surgeons must decide which procedure they will use. If you’re getting your gummy smile corrected, it’s best to know your options and be an active participant in the process.  A Botox gummy smile reduction procedure is very quick and convenient, often taking as little as ten minutes. The area above the lip is numbed, followed by an injection of Botox. There is no recovery period needed, and any side effects are minimal, so this procedure is ideal for those patients who are [...]

CROW’S FEET – BOTOX NEW JERSEY

2017-01-22T19:44:19+00:00August 10th, 2013|Categories: Facial rejuvenation., News, Restylane, Juvederm, Botox (fillers and neuromodulators)|

Along with frown lines and horizontal forehead creases, crow’s feet are one of the most commonly Botox-treated facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet are small wrinkles that project from the outside corners of the eyes. They make the face look older and constantly exhausted; erasing them withBotox makes you look years younger.  Many people get crow’s feet. The skin in the area around the eyes is not very thick, so it’s more prone to wrinkling than other parts of the face. Laughing, squinting, and smiling are all activities that cause the orbicularis oculi muscles to twitch, and repeated twitching of these muscles forms [...]

FILLERS BELOW EYES. HOW TO DO IT SAFELY.

2017-01-22T19:44:19+00:00March 3rd, 2013|Categories: News, Restylane, Juvederm, Botox (fillers and neuromodulators)|

I received a question on my facebook page from a prospective: Do you do filler injection under the eyes? I would like to answer this question by this post to make everyone aware of the issues in this particular anatomic location and how this should be done safely and effectively with no bruising and little to now discomfort and recovery time. For years I was doing filler injections to lips, nasolabial folds and cheeks, but not to the area around the eyes because of concern about intravascular injection that could potentially lead to blindness. I was looking for a safe [...]

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin. Full face treatment New jersey.

2012-06-12T22:48:21+00:00June 12th, 2012|Categories: News, Restylane, Juvederm, Botox (fillers and neuromodulators)|

How Botox works in the entire face. Dr Rafizadeh explains from Morristown NJ Neuromodulator like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are all effective and approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in the glabellar area, the area between the eyebrows. These drugs all work by eliminating the function of small muscles that actively create wrinkles. We have been using these products in other areas of the face like the crow’s feet, forehead, bunny line and the neck platisma bands, with great success. There are other muscles that pull the corners of the mouth down (depressor anguli oris). These muscles can be [...]

Can Botox or Dysport improve depression. Dr Rafizadeh answers from New Jersey.

Botox to impove depression New Jersey There has been multiple claims that treating the frown lines could affect the mood and treat depression, but the most conclusive evidence comes from a study designed by Dr Kruger from Germany.  In fact he conducted the study with a colleague Dr. Wollmer at the University of Basel Switzerland the town of the famous Roger Federer. The study is scientifically designed with a control (placebo) group and demonstrated an 80% positive response in the treated group versus 20% response in the placebo group. The mechanism through which this beneficial effect is obtained is not [...]

Where to go for Botox or Dysport in New Jersey.

2012-03-21T05:10:38+00:00March 21st, 2012|Categories: News, Restylane, Juvederm, Botox (fillers and neuromodulators)|

Botox and Dysport are two different brands of botulinum toxin A  that have similar effect on facial muscles with minute differences. Both these compounds are effective in reducing active lines and produce a relaxed, rested and wrinkleless appearance to the face. The procedure of injecting Botox seems relatively simple and many non plastic surgeons in New Jersey have learned to do the injection, most of them after a short course on how to do the procedure. Despite the simplicity of this procedure I see patients who come to my office with less than perfect results on a weekly basis. I [...]

Painless and bruiseless filler injection.

2011-12-26T21:17:31+00:00December 26th, 2011|Categories: News, Restylane, Juvederm, Botox (fillers and neuromodulators)|

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone  a great holiday season. We continue to have a great experience with the blunt cannula technique of injecting all fillers. There is definitely less pain on injection and less bruising. In many cases, there is no bruising whatsoever. I don't promise no bruising because it could happen with any technique but I am impressed to see that so many patients have shown no bruising after injection. the comfort level of patients undergoing this procedure is another amazing finding. This technique is different than the sharp needle injection and experience is [...]

  10/10/2011 Here in Morristown New Jersey we offer a complete gamut of injectable services in addition to the surgical procedures. I believe that a plastic surgeon who is familiar with the anatomy of the facial muscles and their function, is best positioned to provide these services. Botox will paralyze about a half-inch segment of any facial muscle where it is injected. It is therefore extremely important to know which muscle to treat and for what purpose. The facial muscles are there to give us expression. Some expressions are very important and should not be changed. For example smiling. Asymmetry [...]
