"Bye-Bye Nasolabial Folds - Florham Park, NJ - Top-notch plastic surgeon! I've been going to Dr. Colon for 15+ years. I wouldn't go to any other cosmetic surgeon for surgery or injectables. He's *very* well-credentialed, highly experienced and gifted; importantly, he's a scientist at heart, not a money-hungry marketer of every beauty fad that comes along. I trust him. - - I recently had my second Juvederm treatment in nearly 4 years. It works wonders on my nasolabial folds. I love that the results are immediate and long-lasting. My doctor also injected my "jowls" and they improved immediately, as well. I'm happy that I can periodically have these treatments to help restore a more youthful appearance to my face. It really makes a difference and lifts my spirits, too."- D. / RealSelf / Jul 29, 2015
