in Smithtown, NY
As you age, common signs of aging like wrinkles, deep creases, and loss volume develop across your face. While some women and men turn to facial surgery to address these changes, others benefit from non-surgical injectable treatments.
Injectable treatments are available in a wide variety of formulations, all of which address different signs of aging. Dermal fillers physically restore volume to your face, neuromodulators smooth lines and wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements, and KYBELLA® injections eliminate stubborn submental fat pockets.
Pincus Plastic Surgery offers a wide range of injectable dermal fillers in Smithtown, New York.
Am I a Candidate for Injectables?
Cosmetic injectable procedures are non-surgical, allowing you to enhance your facial appearance if you are not qualified for invasive surgical procedures. Injectables are also a good option if you want to avoid extended recovery periods or if you have mild to moderate aging signs that do not require facial surgery.
You’ll also need to have the following qualities:
- Good physical health
- Committed to maintaining good skin health
- Have realistic goals for improving your appearance
What Are My Injectable Options?
What Are My Injectable Options?
There are several injectable options to choose from in your pursuit of youthful, healthy, and amazing skin, as highlighted below.
This is an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that relaxes the muscles that cause lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic addresses common wrinkles like crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.
Dysport® is a fast-acting cosmetic injection that works similarly to BOTOX® Cosmetic and smooths moderate to several frown lines that appear between your eyebrows. This procedure leaves you with a natural look.
Similar to Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic, XEOMIN® is an approved treatment option for glabellar lines (frown lines). XEOMIN® can soften moderate to severe frown lines between eyebrows or even remove them.
Jeuveau®, also referred to as Newtox or new Botox, is a neuromodulator that treats dynamic wrinkles (lines caused by repeated facial expressions). Jeuveau® works by blocking nerve signals so that your brain cannot instruct the treated muscles to move.
This is a non-toxic formula containing hyaluronic acid. JUVÉDERM® Ultra smoothes deep wrinkles, acne scars, and nasolabial folds around your eyes and lips.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus also contains hyaluronic acid and helps treat the areas with deeper lines.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC
This is a unique facial filler that contains hyaluronic acid. VOLUMA™ treats volume loss around the cheek area.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC
VOLBELLA™ is made of JUVÉDERM® and uses hyaluronic acid to correct wrinkles and fine lines on your lips. This not only adds volume to your lips but also smoothes wrinkles around your mouth.
Restylane® is a clear gel formulation that contains hyaluronic acid and corrects facial wrinkles and folds. This also includes the line running from your nose to the mouth’s corners (nasolabial folds).
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a facial injection that temporarily smoothes out facial wrinkles and etched-in lines around the mouth. BELOTERO BALANCE® quickly adapts to your skin for a soft and even correction.
This injectable cosmetic treatment eliminates nasolabial folds and facial wrinkles by causing your body to produce more collagen.
The RHA Collection is the new line of dermal fillers available today. RHA stands for resilient hyaluronic acid and it combines the benefits of dermal fillers with the benefits of neuromodulators. Not only can this injectable add volume, it can also treatment dynamic wrinkles (lines caused by repeated muscle movement).
KYBELLA® is a cosmetic injection used on the submental area to eliminate excess fat beneath the chin and improve the appearance of a double chin.
How Are Injectable Procedures Performed?
The first step in any injectable procedure involves a facial assessment by a cosmetic surgeon and trained nurses. They will evaluate all your areas of concern and review your medical history to ascertain that there won’t be any adverse effects after the injectable.
They can also mark strategic points as the appropriate sites for the injections.
The sites are cleansed and numbed (some injectables already contain lidocaine).
Your provider then injects the solution into the appropriate areas, which can take up to an hour, depending on the treatment option and number of sites.
Many patients combine various injectables into one treatment for total facial rejuvenation.
What Is Injectable Recovery Like?
During recovery, you may encounter minor side effects like swelling, redness, bruising, and tenderness on or around the injection areas. This should resolve within days or a week.
Therefore, avoid strenuous tasks within this time.
What Results Can I Expect From Injectables?
Many dermal fillers show results immediately (which continue to improve with time). Neuromodulator results usually take up to one week to develop.
Here are the results you should expect:
- Fewer vertical lip lines
- Tighter skin
- Restored facial volume
- Younger-looking skin
- Fewer wrinkles and lines
- Improved facial symmetry
Injectable treatments are not permanent. Dermal fillers usually last between six and 18 months; neuromodulators last between three and six months. You can undergo repeat injectable treatments as needed.
