Who is a candidate for wrinkle injections in NY?

Wrinkle Injection Procedures From Dr. Edmund Kwan

A youthful appearance is just an injection away!

At Dr. Edmund Kwan MD Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in NY, patients can undergo surgical procedures and non-invasive treatments to improve their appearance. When wrinkles, lines, and folds are the problem, wrinkle injections can be the solution!

Dr. Edmund Kwan offers a wide variety of injections, including dermal fillers and neuromodulators to smooth the texture of the face and provide a way for patients to turn back the hands of time. Botox is used to target muscles on the face to keep them from contracting. When these contractions are reduced, the lines and wrinkles are reduced as well.

Dermal fillers are used to “fill” the lines and wrinkles to keep the face smooth and allow it to look much more youthful. Fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane, and Radiesse can provide amazing benefits to patients of all ages. Many fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (Radiesse contains calcium hydroxyapatite or CaHA microspheres) and can be injected into locations such as around the mouth, between the eyebrows, on the cheeks, and even on the hands! Dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with Botox for an all-around “liquid facelift.”

Candidates for wrinkle injections are adults who are struggling with unwanted lines and folds on the face. Alternative treatments may not have worked, such as microdermabrasion and other spa solutions, and patients considering wrinkle injections are often not ready for surgical intervention. Botox and dermal fillers are the perfect alternatives for patients who have concerns about the signs of aging that are not severe enough to consider surgery. Patients must be of good overall health and have a desire to look youthful and improve their self-confidence.

Not every dermal filler and wrinkle injection is right for every patient. Dr. Edmund Kwan is adamant about ensuring patients receive the proper treatment for their specific concerns. Each injectable has its own advantages and it should be used correctly to provide natural, beautiful results. Visiting a qualified plastic surgeon who has the artistic ability to improve a patient’s appearance is a key element to a successful treatment.
