Cosmetic Injectables in Princeton, New Jersey
Cosmetic injectables are a safe, non-invasive way to make subtle yet significant improvements to those areas of the face, chin, and/or neck that are bothering you. Injectables have a wide range of abilities. They can both smooth and prevent wrinkles, plump thin lips, lift sagging cheeks, and more.
Why choose cosmetic injectables?
No one is exempt from the signs of aging. Wrinkles form because of muscle activity around the eyes, nose, and mouth. In addition to these muscle movements, our collagen production within the skin begins to slow down as we age. With less collagen to keep the skin tight and smooth, wrinkles and the lack of facial volume become more visible. This leads to a thinned-out, often frail appearance. Cosmetic injectables can reverse these unwanted signs of aging by using hyaluronic acid to restore a smooth and even facial contour, which will replenish lost facial volume.
What cosmetic injectables can do
Injectables are FDA-approved, anti-aging treatments that can replace lost facial volume while simultaneously reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Patients can get the results they want without surgery or downtime, and will continue to see optimal results when used in a series of treatments. See important safety information
Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau

Restylane Defyne is similar to Refyne. It’s intended for lines around the corners of the nose, mouth, and chin. Like Refyne, Defyne contains XpresHAn Technology which prevents it from impeding natural facial expressions. The principal difference between the two fillers is that Defyne is slightly firmer. The thickness of the gel makes it a good option for deeper facial folds and lines.
