Minimally Invasive Procedures
Effective cosmetic enhancement doesn’t necessarily mean patients must undergo invasive surgery and extended recovery periods. For those who would like to reduce signs of age such as wrinkles and fine lines in the face, a quick injectable treatment like Dysport® can offer great results that give your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance. Plus, injectable dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Juvéderm® and Radiesse® can not only address creases and deep wrinkles, but they can also add volume to facial features such as the lips or cheeks. In addition, Dr. Zapiach and Dr. Cozzone, offer a full array of facial and skin rejuvenation procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, fat grafting, chemical peels, and Latisse® eyelash growth that can help you meet your needs.
A range of non-surgical aesthetic enhancement options are available from Drs. John T. Cozzone and Luis A. Zapiach at Art Plastic Surgery. If you would like more information on Dysport® and injectable fillers available at our Paramus, New Jersey-area practice, please follow the links. Below, you will also find information on many of our other non-surgical enhancement procedures. Please contact us today at 201-251-6622 for more information.
Dysport & Xeomin®
As some of the few plastic surgeons in the area to offer this innovative treatment, Drs. Zapiach and Cozzone, perform Ultherapy® ultrasonic skin tightening here at our New Jersey practice. This non-surgical procedure is approved by the FDA to lift sinking brows. Ultherapy® works by using ultrasound technology to generate heat deep into the skin – stimulating the growth of the body’s own collagen. This new collagen can create the appearance of smoother, tighter skin over the brows, improving hooded lids and rejuvenating fine lines around the eyes. In some cases, results have been known to last a full year.
Dysport® is very similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic and can be used as an alternative to that popular cosmetic injectable treatment. Designed to temporarily improve the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles, creases, and furrows between the eyebrows, Dysport® works by preventing facial muscles from contracting in the areas targeted for treatment. This can result in a more youthful, smoother appearance to facial skin. The entire Dysport® procedure lasts about 15 minutes, and there is typically no downtime after treatment. Although there may be some redness and swelling after the procedure, this should fade within a few days. Results from Dysport® often last three to four months, and can be maintained with occasional “touch-up” treatments.
Dysport® has been approved for use as a wrinkle treatment by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
As an alternative to more invasive procedures such as facelift surgery, men and women have long relied on cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. While these more traditional methods of addressing common signs of aging can be effective for the right individuals, Art Plastic Surgery now offers an exciting, innovative alternative known as the Silhouette InstaLift™. Performed right here in our office, this FDA-approved procedure can immediately reduce the appearance of wrinkles, tighten sagging tissues, and restore lost facial volume—all with little to no downtime.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Facial rejuvenation of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring can be achieved with state-of-the-art laser skin resurfacing. We utilize some of the most state-of-the-art laser technologies available, including the Alma Pixel CO2 Laser. This fractionated CO2 laser works to improve skin tone, reduce signs of damage and/or aging, and enhance the overall quality of the skin. Laser skin resurfacing can also improve the appearance of scarring caused by acne, trauma, or previous surgical procedures.
Our practice offers a variety of facial chemical peels that can be very effective in combination with facial rejuvenation surgery. A TCA (trichloracetic acid) peel can give you optimal exfoliation and eliminate outer layers of dead skin cells, bringing forth the healthier skin underneath. Plus, a Phenol Croton Oil peel can help renew the skin for patients with deep wrinkles and fine lines, as well as improve areas of brown spots and certain types of acne-scarring.
Cleared by the FDA, ThermiRF™ is an advanced system designed to smooth and tighten skin in various regions of the face and body via thermal-regulated radiofrequency (RF) energy. This unique technology can also be utilized to significantly reduce excessive underarm sweating for individuals suffering from axillary hyperhidrosis. At our practice, our doctors offer ThermiTight™, ThermiSmooth™, and ThermiVa™, all of which use ThermiRF™ to nonsurgically address a wide range of concerns with exceptional outcomes.
Latisse®™ for Eyelash Growth
Latisse®™ is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for eyelash growth. Designed as a topical prescription at-home treatment, Latisse®™ is a solution that you apply to eyelashes to make them grow longer, darker, and thicker. Often prescribed for those who suffer from hypotrichosis (inadequate growth of eyelashes), Latisse®™ is a once-a-day treatment that you apply yourself, as instructed by Dr. Zapiach and Dr. Cozzone. Results can often be seen after four to eight weeks of use, after which the solution can be applied less frequently. Many patients experience optimal results after about 16 weeks. With Latisse®™, you may no longer have to rely on mascara and eyelash curlers to achieve thick, long, beautiful eyelashes.
