Skin Procedures

As we all know, aging, gravity, sun damage, and other factors can wreak havoc on the skin. Underlying tissues that work hard to keep your skin looking young and alive, start to break down as we grow older. Laugh lines and smile lines which used to disappear, start to become permanent. Crow’s feet and other facial lines and wrinkles start to appear permanently in areas where facial muscles do the most work. This can all make one look tired and old.

Hope is not lost however. Through the use injectable fillers your Dr Volpe or our nurse injector Emylee Wood can fill in these unsightly lines, and creases to help you have younger, smoother looking skin. When injected by an expert, these fillers can add fullness to the lips and cheeks, and reduce or erase those unsightly lines and wrinkles.

Restylane®

Restylane® is a clear, biodegradable gel used to diminish facial lines and wrinkles that commonly develop around the corners of the mouth, around the lips, and the “marionette lines” from the nose to the corners of your mouth. It is also a very effective lip plumper. Made from a substance naturally found in the body, Restylane® does not contain any animal proteins, and is safe and gentle to your skin. Both Restylane and Juvederm injectables come in different forms and we will help guide you in choosing the best to accomplish your goals. The Restylane injectable family of fillers include Restylane-L, Resylane Silk, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Contour, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne.

Juvéderm™

The Juvederm family of fillers are also hyaluronic gel based and include Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus, Voluma, Juvederm Vellour and Juvederm Volbella. Similar to Restylane, the Juvederm family of fillers offer safe, reliable treatment of fine to deep wrinkle, facial and nasal contouring and volume enhancement.

Composed of hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm™ is made from a natural substance found in all living cells and one of the major components of the skin’s connective tissue. Its water-loving makeup attracts and binds water molecules to help restore volume and fullness to the skin, smoothing lines wrinkles.

In addition to Restylane and Juvederm, New England Plastic Surgical also offers Sculptra treatments for mid cheek volume enhancement, Radiesse injections for specific indications, Renuva injections for face and body enhancements, in addition to fat injections using your own natural fat.
