Facial Injectables (Wrinkle Reduction)

Facial Injectables Overview

One of the earliest signs of aging is a loss of facial fullness and the development of wrinkles. These occur as a result of sun exposure, heredity, and natural aging changes. With the use of injectible fillers, these wrinkles can be softened, and fullness restored.

The ideal candidate for facial injectables for wrinkle reduction would be:

  • Physically healthy
  • A non-smoker
  • Someone with a positive outlook
  • Someone with realistic goals
  • Someone with moderate wrinkles

Final Thoughts

Injectable fillers are not a permanent treatment for wrinkle reduction as they do not stop the aging process. They are simply used to help delay the time before surgical interventions becomes necessary. Injectible fillers can be used in conjunction with other surgical procedures such as a facelift. Dr. Chahin will discuss with you these procedures, and what is mutually felt to be the best method of treatment to aid in achieving optimal results for you.

Facial Injections FAQ

There are generally two types of injections

  1. Muscle paralytic
  2. Volume restoration/fillers

Generally the downtime following any injection (paralytic or filler) is minimal. Sometimes bruising, swelling, or temporary numbness can be present following injections. Typically these will resolve relatively quickly.

Generally we recommend avoiding any herbal supplements (i.e. fish oils, garlic or garlic based supplements) as well as any Advil or any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory over the counter medications. Patients are generally recommended to also stop any blood thinners unless medically indicated. If you have questions about specific medications that you take, please contact our office to go over these. Generally, the time frame is 7 days prior to any injection that the medications are recommended to be stopped.

Each specific type of injection is different. The typical time frame for Botox is 90 days before re-injection, whereas, injectable fillers can range anywhere from 6-18 months depending on the product that is used. If you have questions about specific products that will be used please feel free to contact our office.
