Which Injectable is Right for You?

If the signs of aging are everywhere on your face and bringing you down, it may be time to consider a versatile menu of noninvasive treatments that address a multitude of problems — injectables.

Since each treats specific problems, it’s important to speak first with your doctor about which ones are best for you and will truly meet your goals.

Folks throughout Central New Jersey, trust Dr. Sharon Gertzman to help them look younger, fresher, and more natural. Her expertise, experience, and warmth make her a doctor who truly connects with you about restoring the youthful glow and smoothness to your skin so you can feel confident again. 

Lines, furrows, and folds…oh my!

Deciding which injectable treatment suits you requires an in-depth look into what signs of aging are particularly bothering you. Whether you want to smooth fine lines, tackle deeper ones, tighten nasolabial folds that emerge between your nostrils and the corners of your mouth, or facial hollows that contribute to a “sunken” look, Dr. Gertzman has specific recommendations on which injectable is best.

Types of injectables and problems they resolve

The two major types of popular injectables are neurotoxins and dermal fillers. 

Neurotoxins are best for wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements, like crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, and the vertical lines that develop between your brows due to squinting and frowning. 

Fortunately, Dr. Gertzman offers several neurotoxin treatments such as  Dysport and Daxxify® to soften and minimize facial wrinkles by preventing wrinkle-causing muscle contractions. The safe treatment requires just a brief visit to our office — you’re in and out in under half an hour! The effects of Dysport® last up to six months and Daxxify® up to nine months. There’s no post-treatment downtime, either, so you’re free to return to your normal activities after leaving the office.

Dermal fillers help with problems caused by static wrinkles, which develop when collagen and elastin production decreases over the years. These proteins keep your skin plump, firm, and resilient. 

Fillers are volume-enhancers that revitalize thinned lips, fill in your upper cheeks, plump up those nasolabial folds, and address marionette lines that extend from the edges of your mouth downward. 

We offer a wide range of dermal fillers because they treat specific areas of your face. The Restylane family of fillers works wonders for many and the RHA family of filler are truly amazing as well. 

Restylane and RHA® smooth nasolabial folds and marionette lines and supports your skin. They can address deeper nasolabial and marionette lines and define your chin. These treatments contain hyaluronic acid, known to enhance skin elasticity and last up to a year. 

Additionally the RHA® products have a tremendous amount of elasticity, allowing them to look extremely natural in your skin due to their ability to move freely with your facial movements

The results from these treatments last from 12-15 months, depending on which you receive. This collection consists of:

Radiesse contains calcium microspheres in a water-based gel that helps you with mid-face volume loss. It stimulates collagen production so your skin becomes stronger. Over time, your body absorbs the gel and microspheres, but the all-important collagen keeps working for about a year. 

Talk to Dr. Gertzman about this treatment if you’re concerned with your jowls, nasolabial folds, and smile lines. 

Sculptracontains poly-L-lactic acid, which spurs collagen production and replaces lost volume in the middle area of your face. With Sculptra, Dr. Gertzman administers a series of injections over several months, but once you start treatment, you can expect the results to be quite long-lasting — up to two years. This is a great product for someone who needs volume all over their face, sometimes called a liquid face lift!

Don’t go another day feeling down about deepening lines, loss of facial volume, or thin lips. Schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Gertzman so you can get started on looking your best with the help of injectable treatments ASAP!
