Pre Wedding Skin Treatments: Fillers and Skin Tightening in New York by Dr Marc Epstein, MD

pre-wedding BrideI’m getting married in August and I want to look fantastic. How far in advance of my wedding should I plan to get cosmetic injections? Susan of Larchmont

Thanks for your question Susan and congratulations on your upcoming wedding. For optimal results using cosmetic injections such as Botulinum toxin or dermal fillers we recommend planning an appointment three to four weeks in advance of your wedding date. The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, known by brand names Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®, are popular non-surgical injections that temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, lines around the eyes and bands in the neck. You may notice results within a few days, but it can take up to a week to see the full effect. The results typically last about three to five months before the wrinkles reappear and a new treatment is required. There is no recovery time however sometimes there can be slight bruising at the injection site so planning ahead is a good idea. Dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Radiesse®, Perlane® and Juvederm® can be good choices for reducing deeper facial wrinkles, lines and for facial sculpting and contouring. Most dermal fillers are natural substances found in the body and works by acting like a cushion to lift and support the facial foundation. The results are instantaneous, however, some patients may experience slight bruising or swelling at the injection site so we advise planning ahead. One of the most exciting treatments we offer today is the all-natural, non-invasive micro focused ultrasound Ultherapy. This non-surgical treatment helps your own body regenerate lost collagen, which helps lift, tighten and tone sagging skin on the face and neck. This is an in-office treatment with no downtime or damage to the surface of the skin. Patients typically see some immediate tightening but the full results usually take around three months.
