Injectable Treatments Boston
Easy Solutions to Aging and Wrinkles
Dr. Arnold S. Lee understands that while many people would like to make changes to their appearance, there are patients who shy away from surgical procedures. For those patients, Dr. Lee offers several injectable treatments at his Norwood and Boston, Massachusetts practice. These are less invasive solutions that effectively reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles, folds, and smile lines.
Collagen is a protein that is naturally produced by the body, and is responsible for connecting tissues including skin, bone, and cartilage. As we age, our bodies begin to produce less of this protein, which can cause our skin to appear saggy and less voluminous. Sculptra® Aesthetic is an injectable treatment that works to replace collagen over time. Dr. Lee is a Sculptra® Trained Physician with extensive experienced in administering this treatment. This anti-aging treatment is different from similar products because, although it does not promise instant results, it does deliver longevity. Patients who undergo Sculptra® treatment receive multiple injections over several months, gradually eliminating deep folds and wrinkles. Because the changes happen steadily, patients experience natural-looking results that can last up to two years and beyond.
Restylane® Injectable Treatments
Restylane® is a clear gel that can be used to reduce the appearance of laugh lines, marionette lines, and other facial wrinkles. Composed of hyaluronic acid, Restylane® is injected underneath the skin to add volume and define the contours of the face. Dr. Lee is able to conveniently administer this treatment to his patients in Norwood or Boston, Massachusetts in less than one hour. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, Restylane® is easily received and is non-toxic. The results of this injectable treatment are seen almost immediately and can last up to 12 months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is another injectable treatment option that Dr. Lee offers to his patients who would like to ease the signs of aging. This differs from other anti-aging regimens because it is injected directly into the muscle, as opposed to settling under the skin. BOTOX® injections work by reducing the number of muscle contractions at the injection site, thus effectively decreasing wrinkles. Dr. Lee often provides this injectable treatment to patients in the Boston or Norwood area who wish to get rid of “crow’s feet,” lines between the brows, and laugh lines.
Juvéderm® is also an option for patients who wish to restore volume to their skin. Juvéderm® is similar to Restylane® in that it is partially composed of hyaluronic acid. This injectable gel treatment has a specific formula that makes it especially useful when it comes to treating fine lines and delicate areas, such as the lips. Juvéderm® is a minimally invasive treatment that Dr. Lee offers to patients who wish to smooth away wrinkles. This can last up to 12 months.
