Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia and South Jersey, Dr. Paul M. Glat, MD, FACS, performs treatments with Botox® Cosmetic/injectable fillers for patients desiring skin rejuvenation.
Smooth Away Laugh Lines and Wrinkles with Cosmetic Fillers
If you are interested in turning back the clock and rejuvenating your appearance, our Philadelphia-area practice offers some of the most popular injectable fillers on the market. Safe, effective, and practically painless, injectable fillers provide a temporary solution to wrinkles, laugh lines, age lines, and skin pockets and are a wonderful option for men or women who would like to improve their image but are hesitant to undergo cosmetic surgery. At our Bala Cynwyd practice, our team – led by Dr. Paul Glat – can discuss your goals and recommend the injectable best suited to meet your needs. We invite you to contact Dr. Glat today if you would like to schedule a consultation or an appointment for injectable fillers. We proudly serve Greater Philadelphia and would be honored to work with you.
An injectable agent designed to relax the underlying muscles, Botox® Cosmetic is not a cosmetic filler in the traditional sense. Rather than artificially enhancing the skin with filler material, Botox® injections – which are derived from botulinum toxin type A – temporarily paralyze the nerves controlling superficial muscle movement beneath the surface, greatly reducing the appearance of lines. Because the injections are placed just below the skin, normal muscle movement is unaffected. Botox® Cosmetic is fully approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for smoothing frown lines and the treatment of eye muscle disorders.
Because injectable fillers are harmlessly absorbed into the body after roughly 3 to 6 months, the effects diminish over time. Radiesse® continues to work however, making it a unique choice in the marketplace. Comprised of gel-like filler with calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres (a substance found naturally in the body and thus one that is safely assimilated), Radiesse® acts like a normal cosmetic filler up until the point that it is absorbed by the body. At that point, the microspheres stimulate natural collagen production, thus promoting new tissue development. This property allows Radiesse® to provide visible results that can last up to two years.
Infused with lidocaine (a local anesthetic) for increased comfort during the treatment process, Juvéderm™ is a smooth gel filler that is designed to reduce the appearance of lines on the face for up to one year. Containing hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body, these injectable fillers supplement the HA found in the skin (or replace that which is missing) and provide increased structure and volume. By filling in wrinkle lines, laugh lines, natural folds, or hollow areas beneath the skin, Juvéderm™ produces a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Sculptra®, an injectable filler containing polylactic acid, is approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles, laugh lines, age lines, crow’s feet, and facial lipoatrophy (a slow deterioration of facial fats). A synthetic substance that can be harmlessly absorbed into the body, polylactic acid is designed to act as a lactic acid, like the type naturally developed by the muscles. This acid promotes collagen growth, which serves to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines by increasing facial volume. Sculptra® is so effective that it is sometimes referred to as a “liquid facelift” because the polylactic acid produces results (albeit temporary) not unlike those achieved with a facelift.
Restylane® and Perlane®
Injectable fillers offer a quick and easy solution for patients to decrease severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® and Perlane® are fillers that can increase the volume and fullness of the skin. With these fillers, the skin and lips can be enhanced to achieve your desired volume and contour. After the initial treatment, follow-up appointments are recommended every 6 to 12 months to ensure that your facial features are always at their best. During your first visit, Dr. Paul Glat will review which fillers and injectables would work best for you and answer any questions that you have about the injectable process.
