Choosing the Right Combination of Cosmetic Injectables for Your Face

The idea of trading a surgical knife for easy to tolerate injectables sounds like a great way to completely rejuvenate and lift your face. You want to look better, but you want to look better now — not a year from now. You’ve decided on a liquid facelift, but you’re a little confused about what combination of cosmetic injectables will get you the look you want.

Gene Meisenberg, MD, FACS, and our team of aestheticians at Columbus Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery are experts at nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Below are just a few of the choices you have at our Brooklyn, New York, office.

Smooth away upper-face wrinkles

Aestheticians have used Botox® for more than three decades to erase finely or deeply etched lines caused by dynamic muscles on your forehead and around your eyes. Botox is a neuromodulator that stops the nerves in your muscles from getting the signal to contract, which is what causes those pesky lines and wrinkles. At Columbus Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery, we inject Botox to erase:

Botox usually takes a few days to up to two weeks to completely relax your dynamic muscles. Once they block the nerve signals, your skin smooths out to look satiny and young. The right touch of Botox means that you stop making grimaces that cause wrinkles, while still being able to express yourself naturally and beautifully.  

Lift, smooth, and tone your mid-face and jawline

Sagging, wrinkled, and creased skin makes your face look noticeably older. Dr. Meisenberg and our team select from several Juvéderm® dermal fillers to instantly add volume, lift, and smoothness to your trouble areas, such as:

All of the Juvéderm products are made of a gel containing hyaluronic acid (HA), which instantly fills in areas of volume loss. We offer the full line of Juvéderm in all its consistencies to instantly restore volume to gaunt cheeks, build-up cheekbones to create a more lifted look, or create sexy, pouty lips. 

During your consultation, feel free to bring in photos of your ideal rejuvenation and our team will discuss the best injectable therapies to create the look you want. We can even combine Botox with fillers for a liquid facelift and neck lift.

But at Columbus Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetic Surgery, you don’t have to stop at injectable treatments. We also offer a brand-new, nonsurgical treatment called a Y-LIFT®.

Why a Y-lift?

A youthful face mimics the shape of a “Y,” in two areas: In the first, the top branches represent high, lifted cheeks while the bottom stroke accentuates a well-defined and pointed chin. The second “Y” represents a straight, lifted well-defined jaw area, with the stroke also defining the chin. As you age, your “Y”s widen and flatten. That’s why your cheeks look lower than they used to (they are!) and you begin to develop jowls and softness around your jawline and chin.

Dr. Meisenberg creates the patented Y-LIFT® — also known as a Closed Facelift® — under local anesthetic. He inserts a blunt titanium cannula under your skin and muscles in the treatment area, lifting them to a more youthful position.

While the area is lifted, he fills and supports it with Juvéderm, which maintains the elevated position of your muscles and skin. He adds the finishing touches by sculpting your face by hand, creating flattering contours that look younger and lift your entire face upward. The dramatic results can last two to four years without a touch-up.

Still not sure which combination of Botox and fillers is right for you? That’s why we’re here: our experts do that for you. Just tell us what areas of your face you’d like to improve and the overall effect you’d like to create, and we’ll make your dreams cosmetic come true.
