POSTED ON TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2013 AT 5:55 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

School classrooms have begun to empty and families begin to plan and pack for long-awaited summer vacations. Before you head to the beach or out with the family on an adventure-packed journey, prepare your look with some of our quick, non-invasive skin rejuvenators! At the office of NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Darrick Antell, we offer several options to help you look younger, without undergoing invasive cosmetic surgery, including, BOTOX Cosmetic, Juvederm, and Restylane!

BOTOX Cosmetic Manhattan:  Don’t sweat it as you head out this summer! BOTOX Cosmetic is not only used to treat facial wrinkles and lines, it can treat excessive sweating of the hands, underarms, and feet. In addition, BOTOX has been proven effective in treating migraines and is widely sought to help decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. Botox uses botulinum toxin, temporarily halting muscle contractions that cause wrinkles, so patients can maintain a youthful and confident appearance.  Learn more about New York City BOTOX® treatments.

(The above video disccusses the differences between "fillers" and "BOTOX". Many people do not understand that they do different things. Please watch & listen to this short video).

Juvederm NYC: Look younger and feel confident with Juvederm in NYC! Juvederm is injected under the skin, instantly restoring skin’s volume and smoothing away facial lines. While Juvederm is used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles, it can also add plumpness to the lips! Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid. Naturally occurring in the skin, hyaluronic acid is long lasting & hydrates and delivers nutrients to the skin.  Learn more about Juvederm in NYC.


Restylane NY: Smile with fuller lips and restore lost facial volume with Restylane in NY! Similar to Juvederm, Restylane uses the body’s natural hyaluronic acid, to aid in smoothing out facial wrinkles, as well as volumizing lips, and shaping facial contours. Learn more about Restylane in NY.

Kissable Lips this Valentine's Day with Collagen Injections in NYC

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2013 AT 6:33 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Collagen injectionsThis Valentine’s Day, evenings will fill with candles, roses, and heart shaped boxes of chocolates. As you cuddle up next to your sweetheart during this love filled holiday, speak I love you with kissable lips!

Although many of us may have relied on our favorite lip-gloss with lip plumping tingling solutions in the past to keep lips shimmering, lips that lack volume can cause you to appear older and can even cause facial proportions to seem uneven or imbalanced.

While many people are born with small or thin lips, the most common cause of thinning lips is due to the breakdown of collagen. Other factors that can contribute to thin lips include family genetics, repeated pursing or puckering, dehydration, overexposure to the sun, and smoking.

In addition to thinning lips, patients may also experience facial wrinkles and lines as consequences similar to those that can lead to thinning lips. For example, as we age, gravity, sun exposure, and repetitive movements of the facial muscles can cause underlying muscles to break down. This can account for a loss of skin elasticity, leading to facial wrinkles and folds. At the office of Dr. Antell, we provide Juvederm®, fat injections, and other injectables in NYC to plump your lips and fill facial wrinkles, keeping skin looking young and beautiful.

While fat injections are reliable and safe, patients may choose one of the other approved products for lip plumping, such as Juvederm depending on their individual preferences and skin sensitivity. For patients who prefer not to use fat injections, there are pre-packaged fillers that can be injected, in-office with no recovery.

Fat injections require extraction of your natural fat cells from the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. This fat is cleaned and placed using a syringe.  This is a time consuming process and most people prefer the pre- packaged fillers.  An exception would be if a patient is having a face or neck lift, at which time Dr. Antell may inject fat to further enhance the cheeks.

After treatment of wrinkles or thinning lips using fat injections at our NYC office, patients may experience mild redness, bruising, and/or swelling. In most cases, these side effects rest within 48 hours, so you can quickly proceed to enjoying your rejuvenated look of youth!  Pre-packaged fillers, such as Juvederm, however, have a minimal recovery and patients return to work the next day, or even that afternoon.

Achieve kissable lips this Valentine’s Day, and re-discover your look of youth and facial rejuvenation. Dr. Antell and his staff welcome any questions you may have about lip fillers, including Juvederm® in NYC! Contact our New York City office at 212.988.4040, or request an appointment online for your personal consultation.

Surgery-Free, Sexy Summer Skin with Juvederm & Botox in NYC

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 25, 2012 AT 2:40 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Juvederm and Botox

Summer is here once again, which means time to hit the beach and show off some confident skin. If you are insecure with your skin you don’t have to hide inside during the beautiful summer days any longer. Stop lending your trust to expensive creams that only offer minimal change. With Dr. Darrick Antell’s non-invasive treatments, you can look younger, without going under the knife.

If those deep wrinkles are preventing you from enjoying your time at the beach, consider JUVEDERM® in NYC. JUVEDERM® in NYC is an injectable gel made of Hyaluronic Acid used to correct facial lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid, a natural sugar that retains water, is found in all living organisms, making it perfectly safe and biocompatible. JUVEDERM® utilizes crossed linked gel, resulting in a natural, smoother, longer lasting look. Pump up the volume, and your confidence, by adding life to your drooping facial folds and wrinkles!         

If the winter blues have left you with deep frown lines, consider BOTOX® Cosmetic in NY. Stop covering up those wrinkles with make-up that will just wash off in the pool and run into fine lines, making you appear older. BOTOX®, a diluted and purified bacterium that works to relax neurotoxins in the skin, works best on the upper third of the face, on frown lines between the eyes, crow’s feet, and horizontal lines in the forehead. Get your treatments in before the sun does any more damage to your skin. Skin shows signs of aging from sun-exposure, laughing, squinting, and even smiling; creating deep-set wrinkles, but there is no reason why that should stop you from looking your best this summer.

Rediscover your youth with these safe, healthy treatments during this Summer of Non-Invasive Treatments! Dr. Darrick Antell M.D, F.A.C.S and his staff welcome any questions or concerns you may have, and would love to go over treatment options that meet your needs, be it JUVEDERM® in NYC or BOTOX® Cosmetic in NY. Contact his office at 212.988.4040 or request an appointment online to schedule your personal consultation. Why wait any longer?

Why Dr. Antell is the best choice for Juvederm in NYC

POSTED ON FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2012 AT 2:47 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell


A person’s reputation is typically developed from past actions, accomplishments, or failures. Others make decisions based on that reputation, whether to become friends, business partners, or in the case of plastic surgeons, a patient. Previous results and what people say about those results have a huge impact on whether others want to make the same commitment, which is why patients constantly return to Dr. Antell as repeat patients. Dr. Antell provides a wide spectrum of facial procedures, breast enhancements, body contourings, and cosmetic treatments, including Juvederm® in New York City, and he receives beautiful, grateful positive feedback in every category.

Dr. Darrick Antell provides cosmetic fillers like Juvederm® in NY to smooth facial wrinkles, provide volume to facial features, such as the fold from the corner of the nose to the corner of the lip, and to plump the lips. One of the benefits of Juvederm® in NYC compared to other cosmetic fillers is that Juvederm® is completely biocompatible and comprised of non-animal-sourced hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found in all living organisms, and because Juvederm® in New York contains no animal products, an allergy test is not required before the treatment. Although the results from Juvederm® are not permanent, a noticeable difference can be seen immediately after the injection. The treatment itself only takes about ten to fifteen minutes. Maintenance treatments are commonly needed after approximately 4 to 6 months depending on the facial area; the results for some facial areas last longer or shorter than others.  Results also vary on a patient to patient basis.  Once treatment is complete, the patient will begin to enjoy its rejuvenating effects, adding volume to the skin’s surface, restoring lost volume due to aging, and the smoothing of facial folds and wrinkles.
