Injectables

Facial volume loss that leads to wrinkles, thin lips, and undefined facial features doesn’t require extensive, invasive correction. Most patients with visible aging don’t want to undergo procedures that require extensive recovery periods and may result in associated surgical scars. Injectables are facial enhancing procedures with minimal downtime performed in Dr. Lickstein’s office. With a variety of injectables to choose from, you can rest assured that your treatment will meet your specific needs.

Benefits of Injectables

What Can Injectables Treat?

Upper Facial Wrinkles

Upper facial wrinkles include crow’s feet, forehead lines, and furrows between the brows. Upper facial wrinkles are typically caused by repetitive facial movements, which can be smoothed out using injectables that relax the facial muscles.

 

Injectable Options:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Results visible within 24 to 48 hours
  • Results last up to four months
  • Dysport®
  • Results visible within 48 to 36 hours
  • Results last up to four months

Lower Facial Wrinkles

Lower facial wrinkles around the lips and nose are caused by the breakdown and loss of collagen that occurs as we age. Hyaluronic acid fillers stimulate collagen production to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. These injectables fill in the depressed areas to give an improved appearance.

 

Injectable Options:

  • JUVÉDERM® XC
  • Results visible within 24 to 48 hours
  • Results last nine months to one year
  • Restylane®
  • Results visible within 24 to 48 hours
  • Results last up to six months

Lip Augmentation

Patients with naturally thin lips or lips that have lost volume over time may desire youthful, attractive plumpness.

  • Results visible immediately

Cheek Enhancement

Volume loss in the cheeks can result in a hollow appearance or a lack of facial definition.

Frequently Asked Questions

Facial lines and wrinkles can make you look older than you actually are and cause you to lose self-confidence. If the thought of undergoing invasive procedures like a facelift is intimidating, injectables are a quick and easy solution.

Whether your aesthetic concerns are with your crow’s feet, forehead lines or thin lips—injectables can help to restore your appearance to a more youthful-looking state.
If you have skin laxity, an injectable can be combined with a facial procedure, such as a facelift, brow lift, or eyelid lift, to restore facial firmness.
Yes. Since injectables are only temporary, many patients undergo repeat treatments to maintain their results. Some products build upon themselves, producing results that last longer after multiple treatments.
Absolutely! Each of the injectables offered at our practice is completely FDA-approved.
Some patients may experience prolonged bruising and swelling. While rare, you may experience temporary facial numbness. Most side effects are mild and resolve within a couple of days.
Because an injectable treatment is non-surgical, your recovery period should be pretty minimal. Many patients experience some slight swelling, redness or bruising around the injection site, but these symptoms are only temporary and will subside within a couple of days.

You are free to return to your everyday activities immediately following your treatment, but we do suggest avoiding direct sunlight for a few days.
The kind of results you receive, as well as how long they last, will depend on the type of injectable used.

Depending on your unique problem areas, your results will vary from others—but most of our patients are excited to notice dramatic changes within the few days following treatment.

For those receiving Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport® for their facial wrinkles, results are generally visible within 24 to 48 hours and last up to four months. If, however, your facial rejuvenation needs are with your thin lips, you will likely be given JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC—which offers immediate results that last up to a year.
Dermal fillers are an affordable alternative to the more invasive, costly surgical procedures like facelifts and brow lifts. The final price of your injectable is going to depend on the specific kind you receive, as well as the severity and location of your needed treatment areas.
As a non-invasive procedure, injectables are generally pretty painless. We want our patients to feel as comfortable as possible during treatment, so we provide a topical numbing agent to ensure an easy and relaxing experience for you.
