Facial Fillers / Restylane®
Restylane is a natural treatment that beautifully restores youthful volume to areas affected by age and gravity. Dr. Kolker provides Restylane in New York.
I travel to New York frequently for business and one of the appointments I ALWAYS make time for is to see Dr. Kolker... He makes sure that I look very natural and that we don't over do it. I really appreciate that and I tend to get a lot of compliments after my visits, but people never think that I've had facial fillers like Juvederm or Restylane!RD
As we age, we lose volume, particularly in the "transition areas" of our faces. Imagine a baby, brimming with youth, and the full features and soft transitions of the face. As time and gravity exert their effects, these transitions become more pronounced as soft tissue volume slowly dissipates. The transition from face to lip (the nasolabial fold or melolabial fold), the junction of the lower eyelid and cheek (the nasojugal fold, or "tear trough"), and the progression of the jowl to the chin (the marionette line), all tend to become accentuated by shadow as we age.
Elsewhere on the face, full cheeks may lose their prominence, and lips may seem to thin and wrinkle. Restoring volume to smooth these transition zones and to refill areas where fullness has been lost can be achieved without surgery with injectable fillers such as Restylane© and Juvederm©, minimizing the effects of age, and restoring youth and beauty.

Restylane© and Juvederm© are crystal-clear gels that are injected into and beneath the skin, producing long-lasting correction of lines, folds and wrinkles. Restylane© and Juvederm© are made up of hyaluronic acid, which is an abundant natural substance that provides support and volume to tissues. Restylane© and Juvederm© are non-animal derived, biodegradable, and natural. Restylane© or Juvederm© are injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle, filling out lips, facial wrinkles and facial folds. For the treatment of lines, wrinkles, and folds, Restylane© or Juvederm© gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts producing a natural volume "foundation" that lifts and smoothes the skin contour. Restylane© and Juvederm© can also used to create fuller and more youthful lips by accentuating pouting and fullness, and may be injected along the lip margins to enhance the contour and to prevent lipstick "bleed." After a thorough discussion of your desires with Dr. Kolker, a treatment plan with Restylane© or Juvederm© will be developed specifically to achieve your goals.
Restylane© or Juvederm© is injected into or beneath the dermis, and provides volume where the concentration of the body's own hyaluronic acid has decreased. One Restylane© or Juvederm© treatment session takes about 30 minutes, and is performed with topical or local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. There is little or no "down-time" following the procedure. The results are visible immediately, and may last from six months to one year or longer.
