Cosmetic Injections and Fillers - Dr. Elan Singer Upper West Side, NYC

Cosmetic Injections such as Wrinkle Relaxers, Facial Fillers and Sculptra are non-surgical, temporary to long-lasting injectable solutions, used to combat wrinkles and restore volume to the face and other parts of your body.

Wrinkle Relaxers

As we age, skin loses its elasticity, and dynamic wrinkles begin to form. Fine lines can make us look older than we are, or can ruin healthy-looking skin. Wrinkle Injections are the most effective rejuvenating treatment for subtly tackling the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. It also prevents new lines forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements. Wrinkle Relaxing Injections consist of small amounts of high quality toxins, administered as a muscle relaxing injection for the treatment of wrinkles. After injecting, lines and wrinkles will be smoothed out and you’ll be left with a youthful, glowing appearance. All of our injectable treatments are carried out by our Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Elan B. Singer. He has extensive training in Facial Injections.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are products such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyl apatite that rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through facial injections. As skin ages, it loses its elasticity and becomes less supple resulting in lips losing their fullness, lines appearing around the mouth and nose area, and cheeks looking sunken and hollow. Dermal Fillers are a non-surgical, temporary to long-lasting solution that make it possible to restore volume to hollowed areas, to contour your face and to tackle fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal Fillers can add definition to your face and are particularly effective in filling in lines, creating more prominent cheeks and fuller lips.

Lip Augmentation Fillers

For those who are unhappy with the shape or size of their lips, temporary Dermal Fillers can provide an effective volume enhancing solution that keeps them feeling soft and natural. A common complaint by many of our patients is that they dislike how thin their lips look. Instead of lining the lips and creating a distorted result, we enhance your lips’ natural pattern to give them an overall pleasing and full appearance.

Tear Trough Fillers

By injecting Dermal Fillers into the tear trough - which extends from your eye to divide your cheek from your lower eyelid - the area can be made to look less hollow while subtly easing dark circles under the eyes. Tear Trough procedures treatments are very specialized and require an experienced hand to perform them, especially since the treatment may not be suitable for everyone. The area under the eyes is assessed before treatment and your nurse or doctor will advise you on whether this is an effective treatment for your case. Those who are eligible will benefit from a fuller and brighter expression that will leave your face looking fresh and rejuvenated.

Collagen Builders

Sculptra is a collagen stimulator. It works differently from traditional fillers by gradually and subtly reduceing lines, wrinkles and folds by reinforcing your skin’s structure and replenishing collagen. It works in the lower layers of the skin stimulating your own collagen producing cells to restore volume and enhance facial contours. It is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that helps to replace lost collagen by stimulating your skin to produce more. It does not produce instant results like fillers, but gives long lasting results, up to 2 years, following a course of treatments. Radiesse is a synthetic dermal filler made of calcium hydroxyapatite is utilized for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. This injectable is a longer-lasting filler because the body forms collagen around the microspheres; adding bulk to the injected areas.

Dermal Fillers are a HA (Hyaluronic Acid) injectable substances used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, lines and folds and also used to restore or enhance fullness to the lips. Additionally, dermal fillers are used to create a soft and natural correction to the tear trough area under the eyes. Dermal fillers boost the skin’s hydration naturally by restoring youthful volume. The amount of dermal filler injected will vary depending on what type of correction or enhancement is needed. The cost associated with injections will be discussed at your complimentary consultation.

Types of Dermal Fillers

As the face starts to lack volume and ages, deeper nasolabial folds, unaesthetic marionette lines, a deeper mentalis fold start to appear. Additionally, the lips start to thin which results in turning down the corners of the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane, Voluma, Radiesse and Juvederm are injected extraorally underneath these folds to replace the volume lost and fills in unwanted wrinkles.


Restylane® was the first cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA, or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is biodegradable and completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid


Juvéderm® ULTRA is a new generation of dermal filler from ALLERGAN, a world leader in surgical and non-surgical aesthetic products. It’s a natural, biodegradable gel that flows easily into your skin, instantly filling out those troublesome lines leaving a smooth and natural look and feel. So, you’ll notice an immediate difference after just one treatment.
