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

Fillers can give patients in Huntington, NY non-surgical cheek augmentation
Posted By Dr. Roger Koreen
If you want to change the contours of your face, you have two options: surgical or non-surgical treatment. At the Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, NY, we offer patients the option minimally invasive dermal fillers that can provide stunning cheek augmentations. Fillers can restore lost volume to the cheeks without having major incisions or healing time.
Why patients seek cheek augmentation
Augmenting the cheeks gives the face a more sculpted, fuller look. Many individuals with smaller cheek bones want to create the illusion of more definition, making the face look more angular. Other individuals simply want to look younger and reverse the sunken cheeks that can be common as they age.
What are cheek fillers?
Cheek fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that can be found naturally in the body. As we age, our body produces less hyaluronic acid along with collagen and elastin, causing the mid-area of the face to appear hollow or sunken. When injected in the apple area of the cheeks, they can improve volume in the cheeks.
Injectable fillers vs. permanent implants
When choosing implants versus fillers, it’s important to identify the key difference. Fillers are injected with a small needle into the desired treatment area. The procedure is quick, relatively painless and has no downtime. Implants require incisions and an extended recovery period. During healing, a brace needs to be worn to keep the implant from moving.
Dermal fillers can be an excellent way to take years off your appearance and restore volume and definition to the cheeks. We also offer other injectables such as Botox and Belotero for patients who wish to treat multiple areas of the face.
