As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Diktaban also takes into account his patients who prefer to undergo non–surgical solutions to enhance their beauty. Procedures such as wrinkle fillers, volumizers, injectables which relax frown muscles provide a smooth, natural, rejuvenated look to the face.
The variety of face-perfecting procedures Dr. Diktaban administers includes:
Wrinkle Relaxers: Botox, Dysport, & Xeomin
Fillers and Volumizers: Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Belotero, Voluma, Radiesse & Sculptra.
How Injectables are administered in Dr. Diktaban’s Manhattan Plastic Surgery Office:
If you are familiar with these injectables, you are aware that achieving a great result is all about the technique and placement of the product. Dr. Diktaban is an excellent injector specializing in realistic and natural-looking results. He has been a dedicated trainer and teacher to other physicians in these techniques that are proven to be both safe and effective. Injectables are a safe, fast, easy and convenient way to reduce the appearance and signs of aging.
About Botox and Wrinkle Relaxers:
Botulinum toxins, such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, are designed to relax the muscles into which they are injected. Both Botox and Dysport are made from purified forms of these proteins, which interfere with the muscles’ ability to contract and produce wrinkles. If you keep a regular schedule of use, you will find an on-going reduction in both fine lines and wrinkles. These products can be used to relax lines between the eyebrows, on the forehead and around the eyes for “crow’s feet.” All of the above relaxants can be administered with a fine gauge needle, keeping the treatment virtually pain-free.Results typically last from 3-6 months. To achieve maximum anti-aging effects, treatments should be scheduled on an on-going basis.
About Fillers and Volumizers:
Based on the areas that you wish to treat, Dr. Diktaban creates a customized treatment plan for each of his patients. Different fillers have different textures, and features which make them suitable for different areas of the face. For instance, a “softer” texture filler would be ideal for soft tissue such as the lips and underneath the eyes, while a “firmer” filler might be chosen to enhance the cheek bones. Dr. Diktaban determines which filler, or combination of fillers is suitable for you during your cosmetic consultation. All of the above fillers are mixed or pre-mixed with a numbing agent and can be administered with a fine gauge needle, keeping the treatment virtually pain-free.Depending on the filler chosen and the area being injected, results of filler injection can last:4-9 months
(Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm and Belotero)
9-12 months (Radiesse) or
Up to 2 years (Sculptra, Voluma)
To achieve maximum anti-aging effects, treatments should be scheduled on an on-going basis.
Recovery from Fillers and Injectables:
Some swelling might appear surrounding the injection site(s). This can be minimized by the application of cold compress or cold gel packs. This reaction may last a few hours or a few days. Slight bruising might develop and will dissipate over time. Make-up can be applied immediately after the treatment and can be used to cover up any bruising or irritation that develops. Over all you will find these office treatments to be rather comfortable and rarely, should you encounter any real discomfort after your injections.
Dr. Diktaban recommends that you do not lie down for the first 4 hours, and limit exercise for the first 24 hours after injectables are administered. These precautions are to minimize any swelling. Routine injections create optimal results if maintained on a regular basis. Individual results vary according to your age, product, skin condition/skin type, as well as environmental factors. All of these products offer safe and effective treatment for people who want to restore youthfulness to their face, enhance contours and soften facial creases and wrinkles. They offer benefits without any downtime. Certain fillers/ injectables can be used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments. If you are interested in how fillers can enhance your look, schedule your comprehensive cosmetic consultation with Dr. Diktaban.
