As people age, sun damage, pollution, and other factors can cause wrinkles and lines to appear around the mouth, eyes, and forehead. For some people, these visible signs of aging can rob them of confidence and cause feelings of self-consciousness. Although facial cosmetic surgery procedures, such as a facelift, reduce wrinkles and tighten skin, some people are not comfortable undergoing invasive surgery. Professional skin care treatments may also improve the texture of the skin, but they must be maintained on a daily basis over a long period of time, which can be expensive.
As part of The Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery Center, Inc., Dr. Jonathan Pontell gives his patients easy access to exceptional skin treatments such as Botox Cosmetic, Restylane, Resylane Lyft and Juvederm and Voluma. At our Wayne, Pennsylvania cosmetic surgery office near Delaware and South New Jersey, we want our patients to have all the available options for enhancing their appearance. To learn more about these injectable treatments, contact our plastic surgery offices today by calling (610) 688-7100.
A single BOTOX® Cosmetic injection treatment at our office – located in Wayne, Pennsylvania near the Philadelphia Main Line suburbs and Delaware – will improve wrinkles and lines around the face in two to four days. Derived from a purified form of botulinum toxin, BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used for years by facial plastic surgeons to relax facial muscles that cause deep lines in the forehead and around the mouth. The effects of oneBOTOX® Cosmetic injection treatment last about 4 months.
Before your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, Dr. Pontell will examine your face and skin. Muscles in the forehead and brow area can cause deep furrows and lines both on the forehead and between the brows. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily relaxes those muscles so that wrinkles are smoothed and even erased. ABOTOX® Cosmetic treatment can be performed in a very short appointment, or even during a lunch break. After Dr. Pontell has administered your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, you are free to leave the office with no downtime. You will see significant improvement in lines and wrinkles, and improvement should continue for some time after the treatment. Results should last for approximately four months, but the treatment can be repeated periodically to maintain the desired effect.

RESTYLANE® AND JUVÉDERM®
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® are composed of synthetic hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Therefore allergic skin testing is not necessary. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® have been known to produce some of the most consistent and beautiful results in facial injections, and have been widely used for facial enhancement. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® are versatile injectables that can be used for both wrinkle reduction and lip enhancement.
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® injections administered by Dr. Jonathan Pontell, serving the Philadelphia Main Line suburbs, can restore volume and fullness to the face and lips while hiding wrinkles. Injections in the nasolabial folds, around the eyes, or in the cheeks can also eliminate deep furrows and restore vitality to the face. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid that is identical to the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the body. Water molecules bind to the hyaluronic acid molecules to prolong the effects of the treatment for longer-lasting results. Over time, fewer injections will be needed to maintain the effect. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® have been used in more than 4 million treatments in 70 countries, and injections at our Wayne, Pennsylvania office near Delaware can help patients smooth wrinkles and improve the overall aesthetics of the face.
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® are two of the few injectables that have proven effective and safe for lasting lip augmentation. Dr. Pontell can inject Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® into the lips to give you full, pouty lips with results that will last for several months.
CHEEK AND JAWLINE VOLUME REPLACEMENT
Voluma and Restylane® Lyft are both hyaluronic acid fillers that are meant for deeper volume replacement in the cheeks and along the jawline. A fuller cheek is more youthful then a flatter cheek that is seen with aging. By filling in the pre jowl sulcus (the area in front of the jowl), the jawline will appear tightened and lifted. These filers can make dramatic improvements in rejuvenating faces with minimal downtime.
