Injectable FillersAt Horwitz Dermatology, we offer a wide array of injectable fillers to treat wrinkles, lines, and add fullness to the face and other parts of the body.
Restylane has been used in millions of treatments worldwide and is approved in the U.S. for use in the treatment of facial folds and wrinkles.
The ingredient that sets Restylane apart from other fillers is hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already present in the human body, that plays an important role in giving shape to the eyes, firmness to the skin, and lubrication to the joints. Not only does hyaluronic acid have the capability to attract and bind to water molecules to help maintain volume, it is also fully biocompatible, and with no need to test for allergies, treatments can be carried out immediately.
During treatment, crystal-clear Restylane gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The gel produces volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted and smoothed. When enhancing lips or facial contours, Restylane adds volume and shape to the treated area.
A treatment generally takes 30 minutes, although the time varies depending on the correction you wish to have performed.Back to top ^
Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane) is an FDA approved injectable treatment to increase volume in the cheek area. As we age, we can begin to experience facial volume loss and accumulate more wrinkles in the face. Restylane Lyft can be used to treat facial wrinkles, filling and smoothing the skin to a natural, youthful appearance. A recent study found that 95.2% of patients who were treated with Restylane Lyft were satisfied 2 months after treatment.* Adverse affects of Restylane Lyft are normally confined to the treatment area, and can include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, headache, tenderness, and itching.

Everyone has their own idea of their perfect lip shape, but often genetics, age, and other factors that one can't change get in the way.

The result is smoother and natural looking results for your lips, and the realization of your ideal lip shape.
Restylane Silk is specifically designed to provide you with natural results by smoothing out lines around the mouth and adding desired fullness to your lips.

Whether you’re looking to address a health problem that might otherwise require invasive treatment or reverse the common signs of aging, Radiesse could be just the solution. Developed with longevity and safety in mind, Radiesse is a revolutionary injectable filler that offers superior adaptability for both reconstructive and cosmetic use without surgery. What sets Radiesse apart from other dermal fillers is its ability to provide immediate visual improvement as well as long-lasting results. This is because Radiesse is made of microscopic, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. The microspheres form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows, producing the desired long-term effect.
No matter what procedure you’re considering, Radiesse offers unmatched flexibility backed by years of extensive research and testing to prove its effectiveness and safety. Any form of facial contouring with Radiesse is non-surgical and minimally invasive, guaranteeing nominal recovery time. Results are immediate and only require a few long-lasting treatments—saving you time and money. And while treatment results may vary, compared to other fillers, results typically last months longer with Radiesse!Back to top ^

Fat Transfer & Fat Implants
Fat transfer is an alternative to injectable fillers for treating wrinkles and filling out hollow or sunken parts of the face. The procedure is performed by taking fat from one part of the body (where an excess exists, such as the belly or thighs) and transferring it to regions of the face. Because a large percentage of the transferred fat is re-absorbed into the body, the amount of fat transferred during the procecure is significantly greater than the amount of fat that will remain in the face. As a result, the face will be a bit swollen for about one week immediately following the procedure, after which a portion of the fat will have been reabsorbed, leaving only the smoothed results.Back to top ^
