QUICK BOTOX IN NYCYou might have thought about a facelift, but you’re not ready for surgery. You want something quick, easy, cost-effective, and with immediate results. Botox® is a simple, non-surgical cosmetic procedure to smooth the deep, persistent wrinkles that are caused by muscle activity. Botox® is a relatively short cosmetic treatment involving a series of tiny injections that provide you with a rejuvenated look. Botox® can smooth crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck. Although individual results may vary, Botox® treatments relax the muscles that cause age lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to four months after each injection. Botox® treatments are FDA-approved and have been extensively tested, and the benefits of Botox® have been widely covered by the media. It’s no surprise that Botox® is the most popular cosmetic procedure in NYC and one of Aristocrat Plastic Surgery’s most requested services!
How long does a Botox treatment take?Unlike more invasive plastic surgery procedures, Botox® is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, and has other health benefits as well. Apart from wrinkle removal, Botox® may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms. The procedure itself can take only minutes, depending on what you need, which enables even the busiest New Yorker to get in, get out, and get back to their day!

DYSPORT PROCEDURES IN NEW YORK:Dysport is an FDA-approved injection treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your face that are caused by over-activity of certain facial muscles. It’s similar to Botox® and Xeomin® and is injected directly into the site where wrinkles appear to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. The difference between Dysport and Botox,® however, is that Dysport can diffuse muscles a bit more than Botox® from the injection point, allowing for results that reach deeper into facial areas with just a single injection. It is usually used on forehead wrinkles and around the eyes and mouth. Dysport is made from a protein from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, the same protein used in Botox.® This protein was originally used to control motor disorders and involuntary muscle spasms by immobilizing the targeted muscles. After a Dysport injection, you’ll notice your facial muscles gradually relaxing over the next few days as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles disappear. With repeated Dysport treatments, results may last up to 13 months and eventually require less and less re-treatment because the facial muscles become trained to avoid contracting*. Visit our photo gallery to see how Dysport treatments can improve appearances: In addition to treating wrinkles and fine lines, Dysport can also be used to relieve excessive underarm sweating and tackle the symptoms of cervical dystonia, such as neck pain and abnormal head position. It could very well be the miracle you’re looking for! Both men and women can benefit from the Dysport treatment, and many will feel better and more confident about their appearance after undergoing a Dysport treatment at either our Manhattan or Long Island medspa locations.
BELLAFILL (formerly Artefill) PROCEDURES IN NEW YORK:Bellafill (formerly called Artefill) is a non-absorbable wrinkle filler used for smile correction. Bellafill is the only FDA-approved injectable smile correction treatment of its kind. It has a dual-acting formula consisting of a combination of 20% Bellafill Precision-Filtered Microspheres and 80% Bellafill Purified Bovine Collagen. The result is the immediate visible smile correction of facial wrinkles and folds in as few as one or two treatment sessions with no downtime. The most exciting thing about Bellafill is that the results can last for years! Research has shown that patients choose Bellafill because it achieves a long lasting smile correction, it is more economical over time, and that it is more convenient due to the decreased number of injections required to maintain the look that they desire. Patients are very satisfied with Bellafill, with 91% saying that they were very likely or extremely likely to recommend it to a friend of family member. We’re sure you’ll be very satisfied with it too!
Is Bellafill Right for Me?If you’re a man or woman of any age, you could be a candidate for a Bellafill treatment at our Manhattan or Long Island offices. Typically, good candidates have already tried temporary injections and are injection- and credit card-fatigued. You’re now looking for natural-looking, immediate results with a treatment that lasts. Bellafill treatments are not performed on people with allergies to bovine collagen, or with chronic skin infections. *Individual results and experiences may vary. Bellafill treatments are typically performed 3-6 weeks apart. Before receiving Bellafill, you may first try a temporary filler to confirm your desired result. The results will continue to improve over a period of months due to the production of more collagen.

RADIESSE® PROCEDURES IN NEW YORK:If you have poorly defined cheekbones, wrinkles, creases, and depressed scars, Radiesse is a synthetic cosmetic injectable that reduces the look of those imperfections and oral commissures by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply. It can also soften the lines of the nasolabial folds, or the smile lines that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth. Radiesse is composed of calcium-based microspheres in a biocompatible gel, and it is made from the same minerals that are found in our bones and teeth, which means there’s little risk of an allergic reaction and therefore no need for your skin to be tested before it’s treated. The advantages of Radiesse® include:
- Immediate and long-term results due to its ability to stimulate collagen production
- Radiesse® requires very little downtime
- Natural-looking results
- Budget-friendly cosmetic injectable
- Improved facial symmetry which has been shown to improve attractiveness
- Radiesse® does not dissolve in the body
- Little to no risk of allergic reaction with minimal side effects (swelling and bruising)
How long does a Radiesse® treatment take?A Radiesse® treatment generally takes only about 15-30 minutes to perform and is a simple outpatient procedure. Side effects such as swelling or bruising are minimal and should fade within a few days. Results are visible immediately after the Radiesse® injection and can last for months on up to 2-5 years, making it more long lasting than most other cosmetic injectables. Results will differ from patient to patient. Learn more about how Radiesse® can benefit you: https://www.aristocratps.com/non-surgical/radiesse-new-york/
RESTYLANE® PROCEDURES IN NEW YORK:Treating facial lines and wrinkles, thin lips, and the look of areas beneath the eyes only takes about 30 minutes with Restylane®. Restylane® is a wonderful alternative to animal-based injectables because it’s made up of non-animal Hyaluronic Acid, or HA. This natural substance already exists in your body, and is a hydrophilic, or “water loving” substance. It has an ability to bind to water which makes its results so long-lasting. Restylane® can create the look of fullness in your face and increase your skin’s elasticity. The 30-minute outpatient treatment is injected into the skin below the wrinkles by a fine needle, lifting the wrinkle to the desired position. When lip enhancements are made, Restylane® is injected directly into and around the lip. Topical or local anesthetic is usually used to ensure the patient’s comfort, but anesthesia is not necessary. Restylane® already contains the local anesthetic Lidocaine, so injections are not painful. Once injected, the gel integrates into the dermis and binds water. The results of a Restylane® treatment are immediate and clearly visible. The benefits of Restylane® include:
- Requires no downtime
- Minimal risk of allergies and minimally invasive
- Reduces moderate to severe wrinkles and folds
- Immediate, natural looking, and long-lasting results (maintenance appointments can help results last for years)
- Low risk of side effects
JUVÉDERM® PROCEDURES IN NEW YORKJuvéderm® is the most recent cosmetic injectable to gain FDA approval, and has become extremely popular with American consumers due to its combination of immediate and lasting results with no downtime. While it’s relatively new to the U.S., Juvéderm has been used in Europe since 2005 and is currently used in 72 countries worldwide.
What is Juvéderm®?This widely used injectable gel consists of HA (hyaluronic acid), which naturally occurs in the body and works with collagen and elastin to give volume to sagging skin. You will immediately notice gently smoothed wrinkles and a more youthful volume and appearance to your face. It’s also particularly effective on nasolabial folds, or the smile lines that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth. There are three types of Juvéderm® injections you can benefit from:
- Juvéderm® Ultra, which is used to fill medium deep facial wrinkles and to add fullness to the lips
- Juvéderm®XC, which is helpful for improving the appearance of much deeper facial folds due to its denser formulation
- Juvéderm® Voluma XC, which is injected deep in the cheek to correct age-related volume loss in adults 21+
- Plump up folds and reduce wrinkles that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Reduce or reduce the so-called parentheses, or the downturned creases at the corner of the mouth
- Augment thin or aging lips
- Fill in the prominent vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows
- Augment the hollows under the eyes
- Correct scars
