Facial Injectables and Fillers for Your Cosmetic Enhancement

Facial plastic surgery is not always the answer for acquiring a more youthful appearance. Facial injectables and fillers provide excellent options when you desire to cosmetically enhance your facial features without surgery. Results are usually immediate, and the cost is far lower than that of a traditional facelift.

Facial and dermal fillers can smooth out wrinkles, erase lines and add volume to soft tissue areas that have lost that full, healthy look. Whether you desire to enhance features you feel are lacking in substance or rejuvenate your appearance, the options for making a positive difference in the way you look are numerous.

Several Options for Ultimate Results

At Creative Facial Aesthetics located in NYC, we find the best options for your unique situation. You can say goodbye to your trouble spots as we make a determination about the most effective method of treatment. With a wide variety of products and techniques available to choose from, we can provide you with results that are lasting and effective.

Having several options available also means that your treatment will be less likely to cause an allergic reaction. This is one of the risks that can occur with facial and dermal fillers.

Dr. Khosh and Michele Rivard, PA, have extensive knowledge and experience working with these fillers, so you need not worry about their expertise in delivering results. It is important to choose the correct procedure for the job. Injectables and facial fillers are often designed to treat a specific problem area and are not necessarily interchangeable.

Choosing the Most Effective Treatment

Dr. Khosh is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, and Michele Rivard, PA, has specialized training in facial filler injections, neurotoxin injections, skin care and lasers. Both have extensive experience working with facial fillers and injectables and are well qualified to determine the best treatment to effectively address your specific concerns.

There are several factors to take under consideration when choosing a facial filler or injectable. Preference and cost are certainly involved but also the condition of your skin is a determining factor. Sun damage and skin tone are important considerations. Not every procedure or product works for everyone. Your doctor will advise you regarding the best options for optimal outcomes.

Fillers vs. Neurotoxins

Confusion over the different types of treatments is common. Dermal fillers are injected into the problem areas, as are neurotoxins; however, they work very differently. Fillers plump up, fill and enhance targeted areas. Injectables like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are wrinkle relaxers. These products do not fill in or plump up areas. Rather, they temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause wrinkles. They can be used in conjunction with fillers, but on their own, they work on the muscles that lead to crow’s feet around the eyes, forehead furrows and the lines between the eyebrows.

Fillers usually contain natural ingredients that are already manufactured by the body. These include calcium hydroxylapatite, (an ingredient in Radiesse), hyaluronic acid (Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero) and autologous fat, which is harvested from another area in the patient’s body and used as a filler.

Poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic compound ingredient used in Sculptra®. This filler encourages the production of new collagen, the fibrous matrix in the dermis. This gives skin its firmness. Sculptra is used to add volume to cheeks and fill in the sunken hollows of the face. It can also be used to thicken skin, so facial folds and lines are less noticeable.

The effects of most procedures using injectables are not totally permanent. Some may last up to a year or longer, while others may need repeat treatment after several months. Your doctor will advise you on the lifespan of the various options available for your particular problem areas.

Stephen P.

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.

Robin M.

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.

Scott S.

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!

Melodie D.

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!

Jackie C.

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!
