About Collagen Injections@headingTag>
Collagen is a naturally-occurring substance that makes up 80% of the skin. Collagen helps to support the skin – maintaining health, strength, and elasticity – but the body's natural supply of collagen decreases with age. As collagen levels are depleted, the skin develops more lines and wrinkles making the face appear tired and slack. Collagen injections help to strengthen the skin and fill in lines and wrinkles like the nasolabial folds (commonly known as smile lines). Collagen injections can also be used to add natural-looking volume to the lips, whether the patient has naturally thin lips or their lips have lost shape with age. Cosmetic and general dentist Dr. Victoria Veytsman performs collagen injections to improve the appearance of wrinkles and enhance the lips at her office in Manhattan.

"Dr. Veytsman, is a fantastic dentist and a great human being. Super kind, gentle and knowledgeable. She's not pushy, like some other dr's, I've had and I appreciate that (accept for some stuff that really needs immediate attention of course). I had some work done on my teeth overseas and she actually complimented the work, super cool. Oh and did I mention that she is drop dead gorgeous tall beautiful young lady?!!! Love her assistant as well, super kind and very sweet. We can chat for forever."- A.O. / Facebook / May 25, 2017
"Victoria is one of the most competent and kindest dentists that I know. She has taken care of so many patients I have sent her way- from celebrities to supermodels to busy corporate moguls to Moms Dads and kids. Her kind nature and caring touch suits everyone. Conveniently based in midtown Manhattan- she is centrally located for us busy New Yorkers constantly on the go. I always recommend Vicky to everyone... she is truly one of my favorite people on the planet- plus she is stunningly beautiful!"- M.A. / Facebook / May 11, 2017

What to Expect@headingTag>
Once Dr. Veytsman and the patient have created a custom treatment plan based on the patient's needs, concerns, and cosmetic goals, the injections can be performed. Dr. Veytsman will begin by cleansing the face and marking the injections sites. Most treatments take less than one hour as Dr. Veytsman carefully applies the ideal amount of collagen injections in the needed areas of the face.
After their collagen injections, patients can resume their regular day, but they are encouraged to stay out of the sun. Some patients may notice swelling, bruising, and redness for the first 1 – 2 days after their treatment. Some results will be visible immediately after the treatment, but patients should see their best results one week after their injections. The results of collagen injections typically last 3 – 4 months and can be repeated as needed to maintain the patient's appearance.

Frame Your Smile@headingTag>
Instead of thin, wrinkled lips around your beautiful smile, you can have full, plump, youthful lips framing your smile with collagen injections. Schedule a consultation to learn more about collagen injections or ask Dr. Veytsman about dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers during your dental treatment.
