How wrinkle fillers from Glendale can help you look younger
If you are getting older, that doesn’t mean you have to look older. Thanks to modern, state-of-the-art dermatology treatments, you can take back what the years have done to your skin. One of the most effective tools in the arsenal against aging is wrinkle fillers. Dr. Ted Brezel at Glendale Dermatology in Glendale, NY, wants to share the facts about how wrinkle fillers can help you.
As you age, several things happen to your skin. It loses elasticity and volume, resulting in a loss of facial contouring and fullness that makes you look young. Another change that happens is your skin doesn’t snap back from facial expressions as quickly as when you were young. All of the smiling and laughing and other facial expressions create lines and wrinkles in your face, and guess what? The lines and wrinkles aren’t going away!
Wrinkle fillers work by “plumping up” your skin and filling in the wrinkles and fine lines. The result is smoother, younger looking skin and renewed fullness and youthful contours. Some of the problems wrinkle fillers can help are:
- Frown lines in your forehead, known as furrows
- Smile and laugh lines around your mouth and nose
- Lines between your eyebrows, known as glabella
- Loss of volume in cheeks and lips
Dr. Brezel can treat you with these wrinkle fillers:
- Restylane; uses hyaluronic acid to smooth wrinkles and fine lines
- Perlane; used to smooth deeper lines and wrinkles
- Juvederm; used to plump lips and smooth lip lines, lift and contour cheeks, and smooth wrinkles
- Radiesse; to restore lost volume
Dr. Brezel uses a tiny needle to inject small amounts of filler material into the treatment area. Treatment is easily tolerated, and you can request a numbing cream before treatment. Individual treatment amounts vary based on your individual characteristics and the areas treated.
If you don’t like what aging has done to your face, it’s time to fight off the early signs of aging with wrinkle fillers. For more information about wrinkle fillers and other cosmetic treatments call Dr. Brezel at Glendale Dermatology in Glendale, NY, today!
Rejuvenating your tired facial skin to look more youthful may seem like a far-off wish fraught with surgeries and invasive procedures. However, skin tightening treatments available from your dermatological surgeon can achieve just that, without the need for long, drawn-out or complex procedures. Learn more about skin tightening treatments like Ultherapy with Dr. Ted Brezel at Glendale Dermatology in Glendale, NY serving the Queens Borough and Glendale areas.
What is skin tightening with Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a noninvasive, non-surgical way to lift the skin and provide a more youthful appearance. Ultherapy targets the skin on the neck, chin and eyebrows. Ultherapy uses ultrasound to boost collagen production in the skin, allowing doctors to visually see exactly where they are directing the treatment. This procedure is FDA-approved, safe and effective in tightening the skin to provide a younger appearance.
What can I expect at a skin tightening appointment?
Your doctor will discuss with you realistic expectations for your results, what to expect during your procedure and answer any questions you may have at a consultation. This consultation will also determine whether you are an ideal candidate for Ultherapy treatment. During the treatment itself, your doctor will cleanse your skin and determine which areas to treat. Ultrasound gel applied to the skin allows the treatment to work correctly. The procedure uses a transducer placed against the skin which provides the ultrasound therapy itself. The transducer also allows your doctor to use the ultrasound’s imaging technique to see exactly where to apply the therapy.

After your treatment, you can go back to work or school and return to all your daily activities. You may experience some redness which should resolve itself within a few hours of your treatment.

Botox is one of the most popular skin care treatments offered at dermatologist offices across the country. It’s estimated that over 14 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are performed each year, with Botox topping the list. It is a treatment offered at Glendale Dermatology in Glendale and Queens Borough, NY, that may help you revive your youth and feel better about the appearance of your skin.
Common Skin Concerns
Common skin concerns that dermatologists treat include wrinkles and lines that appear irreversible. These lines develop after years of making expressions that activate tiny muscles in your face (laughing, frowning, crying), and also from exposure to the sun. Now many skin doctors offer a treatment called Botox that can rejuvenate the appearance and feel of the face.
Reviving Your Youth with Botox
Botox is an injectable formula made of a natural material (botulinum toxin) that relaxes or “freezes” the muscles that cause deep lines and wrinkles in your skin. Once injected at specific areas, the muscles no longer have the impulse to contract or move. Many patients find that they are able to revive their youthful appearance by 10 years or more after just one or two treatments.
Your Botox Visit
Going to your Glendale and Queens Borough dermatologist for a Botox treatment is quick and simple. You can probably get it done on your lunch hour and still have time to do a little light shopping before going back to work. A small needle is carefully injected into your areas of concern, whether it is crow’s feet around the eyes or laugh lines in the forehead. Anesthesia isn’t necessary during the appointment and you can return to most normal activities right afterward. It will likely take a couple of days to see the effects and the results can last for up to six months.

Are you ready to get firmer more youthful-looking skin right now?
It’s unfair that aging has to take its toll on our appearance. As we get older, we start to notice lines and wrinkles setting in. Your once vibrant skin is now a bit saggy and less firm than it used to be. Of course, our Glendale, NY, dermatologist Dr. Ted Brezel offers a non-surgical way to revitalize and tighten up the skin on the neck, chin, brows and chest.
What is Ultherapy?
This FDA-approved cosmetic procedure is a safe and non-invasive way to tighten facial skin through the use of ultrasound. This ultrasound treatment is directed over the area or areas to be treated to help facilitate the production of new collagen, which is known for promoting skin elasticity and firmness.
What should I expect from this nonsurgical cosmetic procedure?
The procedure will only take about one hour to complete and there is no downtime after your procedure. Treatment also doesn’t require anesthesia, sedation or numbing gels. Some patients may notice when the ultrasound is being emitted over their skin but the majority of patients do not experience much discomfort from this treatment.
How many treatment sessions are necessary?
In many cases, one treatment session is all that’s needed to get the results that you want. Of course, how loose the skin is will determine whether you might benefit from more than one session.
How long will my skin-tightening results last?
A lot of people will still notice results from their Ultherapy treatment for up to one year. Of course, skin is always aging, so you may choose to get maintenance treatments to keep your results for longer.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
If you are faced with drooping, sagging or loose skin near the neck, chin, chest or brows then you could possibly benefit from getting Ultherapy in Glendale, NY. While this nonsurgical procedure won’t provide the same results as other surgical treatments like a facelift it can be a great option for someone who wants to make changes to their appearance but isn’t fully ready to commit to cosmetic surgery.
