About Collagen Injections
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 and her assistant Jessica are the absolute best ! I have been a patient of hers for about 3 years , and she always delivers consistent and amazing results and her demeanor is always welcoming .She makes her patients feel super comfortable, as well as being a competent and trustworthy dentist ! I started my Invisalign treatment in Jan 2017 and I qualified for an express case. Fast forward to September 2017 and I have a beautiful straight and white smile! I love that Dr. veytsman gave me options in order to correct a bite issue that I had, and I chose to go with Invisalign. I love my results and I'm so happy I did it. Look no further when searching for a dentist, Dr Veytsman and her staff are phenomenal ! No other dentist compares in my book!"- M.E. / Yelp / Sep 11, 2017
"A friend recommended me to Dr. Veytsman and it's been the best recommendation I have ever gotten! I have had terrible fear of dentists/ dental work/ dental offices since bad experiences as a kid, but at the same time I really wanted to maintain gorgeous teeth. I basically swapped dentists for years, hoping to find anyone I could bear to visit. Then I found Dr. Veytsman. Going to see Dr. Veytsman is a pleasure and she is hands down the best dentist I have ever countered by a very wide margin. What she does also doesn't hurt, she is incredibly gentle with her work. She is also fun, kind, understanding and such a joy to just be around. I have recommended her to everyone I know; my husband is a huge fan too:-)"- A.D. / Facebook / Sep 05, 2017

"Great experience! (and I have never said this before about a dentist as I have a general phobia of dental procedures). She totally put me at ease."- I.L. / Facebook / Jun 07, 2017
"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
What to Expect
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.
Plan Your Procedure
Frame Your Smile
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.
