My wife and I went into Dr. Roger Koreen's office to get our skin checked and a few problem areas treated. We did not have any skin doctor and others we tried had appointments that were over 6 months away. We were pleased to get an appointment not too far in advance. When we got there the office was pleasant and the people nice. Dr Koreen was very friendly and took his time in caring for us. Later, I came back for further treatment and again it was a pleasant experience. I thanked him for his knowledge and ability to help me out. Thanks Dr. Koreen!Marianne WMore reviews
Unfortunately, I have had many experiences with doctors. My father had recommended me to Dr. Koreen about 15 years ago. First you will be greeted by very friendly and warm receptionists. The waiting room is extremely clean and comfortable with plenty of seating, magazines and TV’s. The wait time is always reasonable (10-15mins) considering Dr. Koreen always spends quality time for exam and questions (never rushed). He always educates you on the most modern treatments and offering the best options. Dr. Koreen now treats my teenage kids after many years of superior treatment and second to none care. I strongly trust and highly recommend Dr. Koreen and his staff.Thomas MMore reviews

Take years off your face with Belotero injectable treatment for wrinkles in Huntington, NY
By Dr. Roger Koreen
As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin. What once was a youthful appearance, may now begin to look older or unhappy. In addition to the changes in skin laxity, other issues such as fluctuations in weight, genetics, environmental pollution, and even stress can make wrinkles more pronounced.
While there are many products available at drug stores claiming to erase lines and wrinkles, most individuals end up unhappy with the results.
Luckily, having smoother, more youthful appearing skin may be easier than you realize. Did you know that fine lines and wrinkles can be treated non-surgically with injectable fillers? Dermal fillers can minimize the signs of aging on the face, allowing you to look years younger without ever having to go under the knife.
Belotero is a type of dermal filler that was approved by the FDA in 2003. It’s been used for over a decade to successfully reduce the physical signs of aging on the face for both men and women. At our Huntington area office, we believe Belotero injections are an excellent choice for many of our patients who wish to have smoother, younger looking skin.
Like other dermal fillers, Belotero is formulated with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a chemical substance that is responsible for hydrating the skin and hair. In fact, nearly half the body’s hyaluronic acid is in the collagen of the skin. This helps keep the skin smooth, soft, and moisturized. As we get older, our body produces less hyaluronic acid. By the time we reach our mid-40s, our bodies are producing approximately half of the hyaluronic acid needed. The difference with Belotero is that it’s formulated from non-animal sources, which means it requires no allergy testing and is absorbed more naturally by the body.
What is Belotero used for?
Belotero is most commonly used for treating deep nasolabial folds that form between the mouth and the nose. The filler is absorbed well by the body, allowing it to blend easily for an extremely natural and subtle look. For many patients, Belotero injections may be used in combination with neuromodulators such as Botox, which are successful at reducing the contraction of facial muscles. The result is a complete “liquid facelift.”

Following Belotero treatment, patients are free to resume their normally scheduled activities. Side effects are generally mild and may include minor swelling or temporary bruising and redness at the injection site. Side effects should resolve within a week and can usually be covered with makeup.
For most patients, results from Belotero injections will be seen after about two to three weeks and will continue to improve as the body naturally produces more collagen. Results typically last six months or longer. After that, maintenance sessions can be scheduled to maintain long term results. Our team will work with you to determine an injection schedule to keep your skin looking youthful and radiant.
Candidates for Belotero
Ideal candidates for Belotero are those who are concerned with wrinkles or fine lines around the eyes or mouth, hollow areas underneath the eyes or cheeks, or loss of mid-face volume. Belotero is safe on all different skin types.
As with any cosmetic treatment, it’s important that patients are in good health and have reasonable expectations about the results after treatment. Patients currently undergoing treatment for acne, hives, or other serious skin conditions should wait for injectables such as dermal fillers until after treatment is complete.
Benefits of Belotero
Belotero can make a dramatic difference in the beauty and youthfulness of the skin, making you feel more confident. The benefits of Belotero include:
No lengthy recovery periods
Instantly integrates into the tissue below the skin
Excellent at treating delicate areas of the face
Smooth consistency that is less likely than other fillers to cause lumpiness or discoloration
