What it is:
Fillers and injectables are an appealing option for patients with early to moderate signs of aging who are not quite ready for surgery. They also serve as adjuvant procedures in some cosmetic surgeries, particularly facelift and eyelid procedures.
Botox® and Dysport®
Botox® and Dysport® are best suited for patients who do not want surgery, but desire reduction or elimination of fine lines and wrinkles in certain areas.
Injectable fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, Perlane®, Radiesse®, Belotero® and Sculptra® are best suited for patients who do not want surgery, but desire reduction or flattening of wrinkles or replacement of lost volume in certain areas.
PermaLip™ Lip Implantation
PermaLip™ is a revolutionary method of enhancing lips in a single safe procedure that does not require repeated treatments. Once the procedure is performed, a person can enjoy full, youthful lips for many years to come.
Where it helps:
Botox® and Dysport®
We use Botox® and Dysport® to treat the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, the lateral eyes (“crow’s feet”), the upper lip, and the top of the nose (“bunny lines”). Botox® and Dysport® can also be used to slightly raise the eyebrows and the corners of the mouth. In addition, Dr. Wise utilizes Botox® and Dysport® to smooth out wrinkles and creases in the banding of the neck.
Injectable fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, Perlane®, Radiesse®, Belotero® and Sculptra® work well in softening wrinkles, smile lines, the nasolabial folds, and filling in lip lines. Dr. Wise also uses fillers to restore volume in the jaw line, to fill in the hollows or circles under the lower eyelids, and to improve sunken cheeks.
Some patients with complaints about their nasal appearance may also benefit from filler injections.
PermaLip™ Lip Implantation
Dr. Wise is pleased to offer his patients a more permanent result for lip augmentation with PermaLip™ Lip Implantation. This revolutionary procedure can help address the effects of the sun, stress and aging, which cause lips to sag and lose their natural￼￼￼￼￼plumpness. In addition, with PermaLip™ Lip Implantation, Dr. Wise can give those patients desiring fuller lips a more permanent, cost-effective solution.
What it entails:
Dr. Wise will consult with you to find the injectable treatment that is right for you.
Wrinkles that are created by muscle movement are improved with Botox® and Dysport®. These wrinkles are referred to as “dynamic” and are usually not prominent when the muscles are relaxed. In contrast, a “static” wrinkle is present even when the face is completely relaxed. This type of wrinkle is usually not improved with Botox® and Dysport®, and will likely respond to an injectable filler.
PermaLip™ Lip Implantation
Dr. Wise uses PermaLip™ Lip Implantation to create fuller lips for his patients, while maintaining the natural contours of the lips and mouth. The PermaLip™ Lip Implant is silicon-based, meaning it is both soft and flexible, allowing it to adapt to the shape and natural movement of the patient’s mouth without the risk of rupture or deflation over time.
What to expect:
Botox® and Dysport® and injectable fillers are extremely safe. If otherwise medically permissible, Dr. Wise recommends patients should avoid blood-thinning medications around the time of the injection to reduce potential bruising and swelling. In the event a patient does experience bruising or swelling, is should resolve quickly.
A procedure involving Botox®, Dysport® and injectable fillers involves very little pain with proper injection technique. Dr. Wise uses a customized topical anesthetic allowing minimal discomfort. In addition, Dr. Wise utilizes DermaSculpt® Microcannula, a technology that has revolutionized the way fillers are administered. This “no needles” approach minimizes pain and bruising for the patient.
For Botox® and Dysport® the results may be seen anywhere from 24 hours to 2 weeks after treatment. However, the effects of injectable fillers are seen immediately, so the process can be stopped when you are happy with the result.
The effects of Botox®, Dysport® and injectable fillers are temporary, and the duration of each treatment varies from patient to patient. For Botox® and Dysport® a single session every 3 to 4 months will accomplish optimal results. For injectable fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, Perlane®, Radiesse®, a single session spaced 6 months to 1 year apart, depending on the area injected and particular filler injected, will produce excellent results. For Sculptra®, a series of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart will accomplish optimal results.
Since the effects of Botox®, Dysport® and injectable fillers are temporary, patients may eventually want to consider surgical procedures that can have a longer effect on wrinkle reduction and soft tissue enhancement. Also, surgical lifting of soft tissue(through face and neck lifting and brow lifting) is often the best way to restore a more youthful position of the face, as injectable fillers are not capable of lifting tissue.
PermaLip™ Lip Implantation
PermaLip™ Lip Implantation is a groundbreaking, surgical treatment for a more permanent lip augmentation. You will collaborate with Dr. Wise and develop a customized plan for your lips, as these implants are available in different lengths and projections.
Dr. Wise recommends his patients stop any blood-thinning medications one week prior to the procedure, if medically permissible. In addition, to prepare for this procedure, Dr. Wise recommends, but does not mandate, that his smoking patients stop one week prior to and one week following the procedure.
For the procedure, the patient can expect it to take less than an hour for both upper and lower lips. The procedure itself has minimal pain and discomfort for the patient.
After the procedure, the patient may experience some swelling and bruising. The pain associated with this procedure is generally minimal, but can be managed with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Wise.
You can expect results that are smooth and symmetric. PermaLip™ Lip Implantation with Dr. Wise leaves you with no visible scarring and natural-looking, beautiful lips.
Please read on to see how some of Dr. Wise’s patients felt about their experience and results . . .
I have been a patient of Dr. Wises’ for the past 5 years and have always had an amazing experience, so much so that I have referred multiple friends and even trusted my daughter’s face to him prior to her wedding. The office staff is welcoming, friendly, discreet, and professional. The offices themselves are state of the art. I have had procedures from Botox, filler, to a lift, to rhinoplasty, and each time receive exemplary care from the consults to the post op follow up. Dr. Wise and his staff listen to me and have always given me the results that I have asked for—natural, refreshed, and real—me, just better!
Patient from Cornwall on Hudson, NY
Due to an old injury resulting in over-sized scarring to my lower lip, my upper lip had tended to fall just inside the lower on one side. This resulted in oral discomfort as the perception was that my mouth closed only when my teeth closed, which tends to be painful when it ocurs chronically.
I saw Dr. Wise as he is a face-only specialist in cosmetic surgery. He recommended a two-step procedure. The first step was to perform a reduction to the lower lip on the “over-sized side”. The second step was the enhancement to the upper lip on the same side. Inteded to make the enhanced lip sit better on its opposite number below. Initially, Dr. Wise performed temporary enhancement using an injectable product, and this was useful in determining the appropriate size and fit of the permanent work. This permanent filler was a silicone “sliver”, which Dr. Wise introduced, by means of a surgical incision, into the lip corner. The surgery was performed with local aneasthetic and came off without a hitch, and without discomfort beyond a few hours.
At this time, about one month post-surgery, the enhancement is a complete success. It is quite a comfort be be able to hve that sensation that my mouth closes normally, and not to be bothered by “double-takes” with my lips or teeth, which used to overwork to compensate for my long-time discrepancy. The enhancement is also an aestehtic success as the lower lip looks more symmetrical now.

Today for the first time I saw my before pictures in Dr. Wise’s office. I cried. I knew he was good – I didn’t know he was a wizard. When I went to see him for a consult, he suggested I do my neck and chin line. We also decided on a laser treatment for my skin. The results are just not to be believed. I will be 65 this January. I look 50….maybe. So we know he’s a great surgeon – now for the really good part – he’s a great and compassionate man with an equally amazing and compassionate staff. To say the least, I am high-maintenance. He and his staff held my hand every step of the way before, during and after the procedure. Two people I especially have to mention are Betty and Maggie. I was able to text and phone them any time day or night. They never acted like I was a bother. They both were supportive, understanding and encouraging. Dr. Wise himself allowed me to text him whenever I was feeling unsure or worried. Im sure I texted him more then any other patient he’s ever had. I was nervous about the procedure, he was there for me. During and after the surgery I had a million questions and concerns. He never complained, just responded as quickly as possible. There is someone on staff to help you every step of the way, including after your procedure to show you what steps to take to protect your investment. Dr. Wise was willing to see me as often as I wanted to come in, encouraging me and letting me know everything was just as it should be. He has a million tricks up his sleeve for every concern. One reason I chose Dr. Wise was that he concentrates on the face. His expertise is from the neck up, which is exactly what I wanted. I have since had filler and Botox expertly done by Dr. Wise. I’m so grateful that he is younger then I, because I plan on living a long life. With his help it will be a long BEAUTIFUL life!

Patient from Haskell, NJ
Dr. Wise and his staff are amazing. Every step of my procedure was explained to me in great detail. I felt extremely comfortable. I felt as if I were surrounded by family in the office. My procedure was painless and the results were truly amazing. I was able to see results immediately and was thrilled. My results looked so natural and exceeded way beyond expectations. I can’t thank Dr. Wise and his staff enough for my new natural look.
Patient from Wayne, NJ
I think Dr. Wise is a compassionate, kind man. He was extremely attentive and offered suggestions that were sincere and helpful. I am 55 years old. I had Restylane injected around my mouth and Botox and Restylane on my forehead. He was very gentle. By the time I left his office I looked 10 years younger and felt great. I WOULD NOT HESITATE RECOMMENDING HIM!

Patient from Manalapan, New Jersey
Dr. Wise has been my doctor for my aesthetic needs for quite a while. I was referred to him by a dear friend who said she would never recommend anyone other than Dr. Wise, and I feel the same way. He has an eye for beauty and takes the time to really understand what his patients are hoping to achieve in their appearance. His results never fall short of completely sensational and I recommend him to everyone I know! Thank you, Dr. Wise!
Patient from Freehold, New Jersey
I’m writing because I’d like to thank you, although I can hardly express my appreciation. I had always been unhappy with the way my lips looked, and it was something that bothered me every time I looked in the mirror. I never did anything about it because I didn’t have a doctor I could trust, especially with my face. Plus, I work in the public eye and could not take any risks.
I met several people who had various procedures done by you and it quickly became evident that I had found a doctor I could trust. You were so patient with my questions and the fact that you took so much time to listen and understand my concerns was incredible.
Beyond that, your work is magnificent. You truly possess an artistic gift that far surpasses any other. I know that you will make sure to give me your honest opinion and always create a beautiful, natural result. I can’t thank you enough.
Patient from Wall Township, New Jersey
With special thanks to all of you! I cannot express in words the positive impact you have made in my life. Your compassion and skill have deeply affected me. Thank you so much!
Patient from Monroe Township, New Jersey
Thanks again!!! The treatment was the best. As always, Dr. Wise was great. I am a happy camper once again about the way my face turned out! Thanks again!
Patient from Englewood, New Jersey
Dr. Wise, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything! Your demeanor, given my anxiety, was truly characteristic of an excellent physician, as well as a person with great character! Thank you for caring!
Patient from Hillsborough, New Jersey
Just a quick note of thanks for your professionalism in treating me a few weeks back. Your staff is WONDERFUL- warm, engaging, and the new office is beautiful. I love the results and have not been shy about speaking highly of my experience with you and your office. Thank you again.
Patient from Wayne, New Jersey
I had an ideal experience in Wayne, NJ. Why would you go anywhere else? I wouldn’t trust anyone else with injections in my face. I received Botox and Juvederm and Dr. Wise melted 5 years from my 34-year-old face in 15 minutes. I feel much more confident now going back to school and being in classrooms with younger people. You have to trust your doctor, and you can trust someone who graduated from Yale, Cornell, Penn, and NYU.
Patient from New York, New York
I was always looking drawn and tired. No matter how well I applied makeup, my look never had that cheerful look I was known for most of my life. Now people say I look great, happy, rested and vibrant. Nobody has asked if I had any kind of procedure. What a blessing this has been in my life. Dr. Wise and staff from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
Patient from Wanaque, NJ
