Non-Surgical Procedures

Non-Surgical Procedures

The Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Temple Health Ft. Washington also offers a number of non-surgical procedures to enhance our patients’ appearance. Trained, skilled aestheticians can provide the following services:

  • Botox® Cosmetic: This prescription medicine is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
  • Dysport®: This prescription injection can temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in patients below the age of 65.
  • Collagen: Collagen is a protein that is plentiful in your skin when you are young and it makes your skin appear taunt and smooth when you are young. As we age collagen production declines, resulting in looser, uneven skin. Though the popularity of collagen injections has been superseded by some of the other treatments listed below, they still can be effective treatment options for furrowed brows, crow’s feet and smile lines, and can make lips appear fuller.
  • Bellafill®: Formerly called Artefill, this injectable gel, which includes collagen, is useful in correcting both smile lines and moderate to severe acne scars in patients at least 21 years of age.
  • Perlane® and Restylane®: Various versions of these products are all clear gel formulations of hyaluronic acid—an acid naturally found in the body. They can add volume and fullness to your skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds—including lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. For patients over 21 years of age, several versions of Restylane can enhance lips and Restylane Silk can treat lip lines. Perlane products are a good choice for more for more severe facial wrinkles that benefit from deeper skin injections.
  • Sculptra® Aesthetic: This injectable poly-L-lactic acid is used to correct shallow to deep) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a single regimen for the correction of shallow to deep corner-of-the-mouth folds and other facial wrinkles. JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC are both injectable gels. The XC version can temporarily add volume to the skin to temporarily improve severe facial wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. The Voluma XC version is used for deep injections in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21.
