Injectables Q & A

What are injectables?

As you age, you may notice an increase in facial wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging. Although these signs of aging are common, they can chip away at your self-confidence. Injectables can help restore lost volume and smooth away unwelcome wrinkles.

Facial fillers and injectables are a nonsurgical method of skin rejuvenation. These treatments are often used in combination with surgical procedures like facelifts. But they can also provide an excellent alternative for patients who prefer to avoid surgery.

Which injectable is right for me?

Dr. Craig Foster offers a wide variety of injectables to suit every aesthetic need. Injectables provided at his practice include:

  • BOTOX®

Treatments like BOTOX help to smooth out furrows and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. Other injectables like Radiesse are dermal fillers that restore lost volume to your skin. These treatments plump up your skin and reduce the appearance of creases or fine lines.

During your initial consultation. Dr. Foster examines your skin and asks about your aesthetic goals. Armed with this information, he can then help you decide which treatment will best meet your needs.

How are injectables administered?

Once Dr. Foster has selected the right injectable for your aesthetic needs, the procedure begins. Dr. Foster or his team may mark specific areas of your face to show where the injections will be placed. Next, they clean your skin and apply numbing cream to help reduce discomfort. The injectables are then administered using a thin, sterile needle.

Procedures are usually fast and painless. Depending on the type of injectable, you may receive many injections along different areas of your face. But even when several injections are made, the procedure is usually finished within an hour. Some procedures may take as little as fifteen minutes.

What kind of results can I expect?

Many patients experience mild swelling or bruising after their procedure. You may not be able to see your results until after these side effects have disappeared, and full results sometimes take several weeks to appear. But most patients notice a significant improvement within 2-3 weeks.

Injectables often provide results which last anywhere from several months to two years. Dr. Foster can provide regular touch-ups to help you maintain your results over many years.
