Injectable treatments are one of the most desirable ways to quickly enhance the appearance, whether you want to smooth away wrinkles, or add the cheekbones you never had but always wanted. These treatments offer a broad range of benefits in a single procedure that involves little discomfort and virtually no downtime. Whether you have never tried injectables before or are a regular fan of the products, the staff at Lickstein Plastic Surgery have plenty of good reasons why you should love these treatments from Allergan this February, and all year long.

Say Goodbye to Wrinkles with Botox®

Ask someone what comes to their mind when they think of anti-aging treatments, and a large number will likely say Botox®. This prescription formulation has been used for decades for both medical and cosmetic purposes, demonstrating an extensive track record of both safety and efficacy. Botox® continues to be a first choice for reducing the appearance of the following symptoms of aging:

  • Deep vertical lines that form above the nose between the eyebrows, known as the 11s
  • Short, horizontal lines that develop across the top of the nasal bridge, known as bunny lines
  • Horizontal creases that appear across the forehead sometimes referred to as worry lines
  • Subtle lines that tend to fan out from the outer corners of the eyes, known as crow’s feet
  • The early signs of a drooping brow line that produce an appearance of fatigue or sadness

All these lines and changes have one thing in common – they are caused by repetitive motions in the face when certain expressions are made. Known as dynamic wrinkles, treating these facial creases requires a different approach than what is typically offered with filler solutions. Botox® eases the muscles that lead to the formation of these aging symptoms, which in turn reduces the appearance of the lines. For those in their 30s who have a habit of frowning or pursing their lips, Botox ®can also be used to prevent the formation of deeper wrinkles in the future. Botox® injections offer a more youthful appearance for up to four months before a subsequent series of injections may be necessary.

Address a Myriad of Concerns with Juvéderm

The Juvéderm family of dermal fillers features a wide range of formulations that can address many different cosmetic concerns, from reducing the appearance of wrinkles to restoring youthful volume, and correcting minor imperfections and asymmetries. All the Juvéderm products contain hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that promotes hydration, and a smooth supple appearance to the skin. This substance tends to get depleted through the aging process, which leads to dryness, loss of volume and skin laxity. Restoring hyaluronic acid to the dermal structure reverses these signs of aging, producing a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Juvéderm products can address the following concerns:

  • Creases appearing from the nose to the mouth, known as nasolabial folds
  • Small vertical lines that form around the corners of the mouth referred to as smile lines
  • Wrinkles extending from the corners of the mouth to the jawline also called marionette lines
  • Loss of volume in the mid-face, leading to hollowing and lack of cheek definition
  • Fine lines and dark circles that develop underneath the eyes
  • Depletion of volume in the temple area
  • Reduction in lip volume and definition or asymmetry in the lips

Juvéderm injections take just minutes to complete, and the results can be seen almost right away. The enhanced appearance may linger for anywhere from six to 18 months, depending on the treatment area and the formulation used.

Treatments to Grab on a Lunch Hour

One of the most significant benefits of either of these injectable treatments is the speed of the procedure. Depending on the number of concerns you would like addressed, many of these sessions can take 30 minutes or less to complete. There is no anesthesia required with this procedure, which dramatically reduces both treatment and recovery time. If you do opt to have a topical numbing cream before treatment, you will need to add time to your session to allow the numbing medication to take effect.

Quick treatments allow you to schedule these procedures on your lunch hour and head back to work with almost no indication you just had an appointment with your plastic surgeon. The convenience of the procedure makes it easy to keep up regular treatment sessions to maintain your positive results.

No Pain, No Downtime, Fast Results

Injectable procedures using Botox® or Juvéderm products are quick and relatively painless. While you might feel a pinch when the injection is administered, any discomfort is minimal and fleeting. You can resume activities right away, which means these treatments don’t take away from your ability to maintain your active schedule. Preliminary results are evident almost as soon as the injections are completed. Most will continue to improve in the days following the procedure. Unlike surgical options, you won’t need to wait weeks for your recovery to be completed to see the fruits of your investment.

Enhance Your Look, Get Diamonds

While injectable treatments are beneficial any time, the month of February makes them particularly attractive at Lickstein Plastic Surgery this year. We are offering patients the opportunity to treat themselves to diamonds if they purchase any of these Allergan treatments throughout the month:

The Brilliant Distinctions® program, available at Lickstein Plastic Surgery, allows patients to collect points with qualifying Allergan treatments or products they purchase. These points can be redeemed for discounts that can be applied to future procedures. The program offers three different levels: Silver, Gold, and the coveted Diamond status. Patients that achieve Diamond level membership get to enjoy the most benefits, including reward points that never expire.

Throughout February 2018, any of our patients who achieve Diamond status in the Brilliant Distinctions® program will also save 10 percent on all diamond jewelry at Golden Anvil Jewelers. In addition, patients who make a donation of at least $25 to support Impact the Palm Beaches and purchase an Allergan treatment during this month will be entered in a drawing to win a pair of double row halo diamond earrings designed by Golden Anvil Jewelers, valued at $4500.

February is the month to celebrate love, so why not make that celebration even more beautiful with an injectable treatment to pamper yourself? With diamonds and other benefits waiting, now is the time to schedule your procedure at Lickstein Plastic Surgery. Give our office a call today at 561-571-4000.
