UNDERSTANDING DERMAL FILLERS
Dr. Downie, a Board-certified dermatologist, has helped thousands (including herself) turn back the hands of time with dermal fillers. She has more than 19 years of experience with fillers.
Many patients who feel invasive facelift surgery is their only solution just need to add volume to look years younger. Dr. Downie often recommends Restylane Lyft, an injectable dermal filler. She uses fillers regularly on her own face to enjoy a natural-looking, revitalized appearance. She was involved in the original clinical trials as an investigator for several products and has included them in her practice since their FDA approval.
Restylane Lyft can be used on forehead, temples, ears, cheeks, under the eyes, nose, jawline – and on the hands. The product can also improve the appearance of a less-than-ideal rhinoplasty (nose job) outcome.
Dr. Downie begins by gently cleansing your face to remove all traces of make-up. She listens to your goals as you indicate areas of concern. She is adept at analyzing facial animation while you talk so she knows precisely where to use fillers.
One of Dr. Downie’s favorite areas to treat is under the eyes, to address hollows and dark circles. Both male and female patients look rejuvenated. This is one of the most popular procedures performed at image Dermatology ® P.C..
Depending on the number of syringes used, a session usually takes about 15 minutes.
Actual Patient Results
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE TREATMENT
Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L, is an injectable hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA to add volume and lift the cheeks, to smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds). This synthetic, non-animal substance replicates chemical compounds that already exist in the body, so there is little risk of allergic reaction. Side effects may include mild bruising and swelling at injection sites, but it is minor and resolves quickly. As with any medical procedure, depending on your unique physiology, there is the possibility of more serious complications like persistent bruising, secondary infection, or migration of filler. These side effects are rare, and we take every precaution to ensure your wellbeing.
PATIENTS OFTEN ASK . . .
The injections may pinch a little but the procedure is very tolerable. A typical treatment begins with application of a topical numbing agent to maintain patient comfort.
None! You may return to normal activities right after treatment.
Results are seen immediately, and last approximately six months (up to ten months in some areas such as under the eyes).
Not unless you tell them. Dr. Downie provides amazing results with a light touch. Not too much, and never overdone or artificial. Others will, however, notice that you look refreshed, rejuvenated, and terrific.

From NBC news this is Today! Thank you Al, this morning on Forever Young trying to stay forever young is a growing interest in anti-ageing product which is any indication looking your age is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Do you think I look 40? If Samantha’s past 4 birthdays taught me anything it was that there is only one answer to a question like that—you don’t look a day over 35. In an age conscious society getting older doesn’t have to mean looking older. With the help of dermatologist, Dr. Jeanine Downie we found 4 women in 4 different ages all getting anti-ageing treatment to enhance their looks. 54 year old carol suffers from rosacea so she routinely gets laser treatments. I also got it because it builds collagen which I thought was immoral for a woman my age. I am not trying to hide every wrinkle or every grey hair. For me it is really just about looking as good as I can. At 43 years old terry is also concerned about how she looks, so she usually gets chemical peels, but today it was a soap peel. I decided I would like to try something different, just to see if I could look any better. I am not so worried about looking older I just want to keep looking good. In fact new trends in cosmetic dermatology show more younger patients are addressing more fine lines before they become deep lines. Like 35-year-old Francis. I just went to get Restalyne because the line around the folds around my nose and my mouth really bother me, and that is where I felt that showed age and even 31-yearl-old Ciara, she is getting Botox for the very first time. I decided to get Botox more as the preemptive measure. I am getting married in the fall and I really wanted to makes sure that I look my best come my big day. Dr. Jeanine Downie is a board certified dermatologist in New Jersey who helped those ladies out, she joins us this morning nice to have you. Thank you Natalie. So why are we all into anti-ageing treatments? Well basically it is a means to measure attractiveness. You think of romantic viability you think of professional competitiveness and social status. So basically all of those things. So let’s take a look once again at carol, hates to tell her age but we saw her in the piece before. There she is before the laser treatment as we saw and take a look at Carol now and doctor Downie tell me what has improved and how often she has to continue to go through these laser treatments. Well carol does the Ora and the Lyra combination of two lasers together. She does them about once a month and now she is doing I for about a year, and now she is doing it about once every 3 months, and now carol you said that you were looking for something that was not invasive so as you start ageing some people are looking for the noninvasive and it is a good solution with Rosacea—it decreases redness it decreases the broken blood vessels and it helps to build collagen. So therefore it is why you liked it, and you liked the improvements right you have seen? I do love the improvements, it makes a big difference. It eliminates some of the fine lines and wrinkles and that is what I am going for. That is great, but it is not only women carols age, we are talking about it is also for younger women. I mean how young are you seeing people coming in for preventative measure? 25 right 25 so starting at that age – so that is sort of a new normal in a way. Exactly and is it really a preventative measure that Botox and some of the laser treatments – some of the other treatments out there – will it help? Prevent some of the ageing? It actually does if you can’t make the line then you are not getting furrows – you can avoid looking like your grandma or whoever it is, and then you don’t want the lines because you get the furrows. Let’s take a look at Francis – 35 years old and she is one who is already addressing the lines around her mouth she had the Restalyne filler is that right? Restalyn filler and take a look this is before and now here she is – live after so a he improvement around the mouth area as you can see it is very visible doctor Downie is this something that you recommend for a lot of people in that age? I do – Restyle is very very popular – it is hyaluronic acid filler and we put it in between the lines here between the nose and mouth sometimes you put it in between the lips. Francis already had great lips and what we do it actually helps to build collagen as well as the fact at the lines would not get too deep and that is your concern. And what do you think Francis? I love this and really it is great for prevention. Yeah there are also some products on the market as well Dr. Downie that you like to work with – to help with prevention, right. As well as anti-ageing and the first thing that I want to say Natalie is sun screen X3 a must! You want broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. High SPF, UVA filter which you see in the tropic product you see in the ocean potion anti-ageing sunscreen and you also see it in this sunscreen here so these are 2 over the counter and one dermatology reliant so that is first an foremost. And there is a great new line of Viviatae and what it does is that it exfoliates and hydrates and protects with a high amount of glycolic acid – antioxidants it has pomegranate in it has this super oxide, these are things that help to fight through radical damage in terms of pollution and stress in the ozone depletion form the environment so they actually exfoliate, they hydrate and they protect and this is a great new line and it is kind of a 4 in 1 system with a cleanser with a day cream and night cream and an eye cream so. And if you are not getting the treatment Restalyne, Botox or Laser there are things you can do in your daily life beyond the sunscreen which is you know diet, proper diet, balance diet and exercise a lot of people say – that I would never anti age myself. Hey, I Botox myself! And a lot of people whiten their teeth and there are anti-ageing methods that people are not thinking about as anti-ageing measures that are truly anti-ageing! Well Dr. Jeanine Downie, Francis and carol; – ladies thank you so much for volunteering to be here as well.
