Improve your facial appearance by diminishing fine lines, filling out your thin lips or flattened cheeks. Younger faces are fuller and rounder. As we age, not only does our face become longer, the skin sags and becomes deflated due to facial fat loss. Fillers are effective at replacing this volume loss and lifting the skin. Dr. Carpin will offer a precise, and graduated approach to restore your youthful face, so the results are natural and beautiful, without looking overdone.All injections are performed by the Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kimberly Carpin. The downtime is usually minimal and most fillers can be placed in less than 30 minutes. Patients experience some discomfort during filling, but the discomfort is minimized with topical or local anesthetic. Bruising can occur, often concealable with make-up application. Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Carpin to discuss which is best for you.

What Cosmetic Concerns Can Injectables Treat?

Injectables are versatile and can effectively address a wide range of cosmetic concerns. They are commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet, giving your face a smoother and more youthful appearance. Additionally, injectables can help enhance your natural facial contours by adding volume to areas such as your cheeks, lips, and chin. They can also be used to minimize the appearance of acne scars and correct asymmetry. Plus, fat-dissolving injectables can eliminate a double chin for a slimmer and stronger jawline. Whether you want a subtle enhancement or a more dramatic transformation, injectables offer a non-surgical solution to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.


What are the Most Popular Cosmetic Injectables?

Some of the most popular cosmetic injectables include BOTOX® Cosmetic, Kybella®, and Radiesse®. BOTOX® Cosmetic is widely recognized for its ability to temporarily relax facial muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is particularly effective in treating frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Kybella® is a revolutionary injectable specifically designed to target and eliminate stubborn fat beneath the chin, commonly known as a “double chin.” Radiesse®, on the other hand, is a dermal filler that helps restore volume to the face, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance. These popular injectables, when skillfully administered by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Kimberly Carpin, can yield remarkable and natural-looking results.

How Often Do You Need Injectables?<


How Often Do You Need Injectables?

The frequency of injectable treatments depends on various factors, including the type of injectable used, your unique anatomy, and your personal aesthetic goals. Typically, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are recommended every three to four months to maintain optimal results. However, the effects of injectables can vary, and some patients may find that their results last longer. Dermal fillers like Radiesse® generally last a year or more, depending on the specific product and treatment area. Dr. Carpin will guide you through these and other considerations, ensuring that the frequency of your injectable appointments is tailored to your needs.


When Should I Consider Injectables Over Cosmetic Surgery?

While cosmetic surgery can provide transformative results, injectables offer a non-surgical alternative that is often preferred by individuals looking for quick appointments, minimal downtime, and a lower price point. Injectables can be an excellent choice if you have mild to moderate signs of aging or specific cosmetic concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss, or a double chin. They are minimally invasive, typically requiring only a brief office visit, and the recovery time is minimal, allowing you to resume your daily activities almost immediately. However, for individuals with more significant facial aging who want the most dramatic improvement, cosmetic surgery may be a more suitable option. During a personalized consultation with Dr. Carpin, she will assess your needs, discuss your goals, and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan.


Which Injectables Last the Longest?

he mileage of your injectable results will vary depending on the specific product used. Generally, dermal fillers tend to provide longer-lasting effects compared to wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® Cosmetic. Radiesse®, for instance, is known for its longevity and can deliver results that last over a year in some cases. Other dermal fillers, such as Juvederm® Voluma XC and Sculptra® Aesthetic, can also offer long-lasting results, typically ranging from one to two years. However, it’s important to note that individual responses to injectables can differ, and the longevity of your results may vary based on factors such as your metabolism and lifestyle habits. Dr. Carpin will work closely with you to determine the most appropriate injectable.
