What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Most people would consider any kind of acid to be detrimental to your skin, especially facial skin; however, hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body. The highest concentration of this substance can be found in the eyes and joints. Skin cells make hyaluronic aid in order to maintain moisture levels. It has an incredible ability to hold water, and it regulates moisture within cells, so that the cells do not become waterlogged.

Used as a facial filler, hyaluronic acid in the form of Juvéderm® or Restylane®, is injected underneath the folds in the skin or at the site of wrinkles and fine lines. The volume once missing in the area is replenished. This increase in volume smooths out wrinkles, fills in sagging skin and helps you look years younger.

Types of Injectable Hyaluronic Acid

At Creative Facial Aesthetic, we use Juvéderm® and Restylane® products for hyaluronic acid injections. Even though they both contain hyaluronic acid as a main ingredient, there ar still subtle differences between the two. Juvéderm® provides a smoother consistency due to its higher content of hyaluronic acid. Five products are part of the Juvéderm® family, Juvéderm Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus, Vollure, Volbella and Voluma. Each has its’ own special characteristics to target specific needs and give a soft natural look. Restylane and Restylane Lyft, while slightly stiffer also offer long-lasting results that are natural.

Thinning lips can be made to look naturally voluptuous and more appealing with hyaluronic acid injections from both the Juvederm and Restylane products. Find out more about the procedure by contacting Creative Facial Aesthetics in NYC. Schedule an appointment for a consultation and let us help you look and feel refreshed.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
