What are Injectables?

Injectable treatments use specialized solutions to achieve a younger looking appearance. These minimally invasive treatments can add volume to your face, help build collagen, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, or get rid of spider veins. All it takes is a few simple injections with very fine, small needles to achieve your desired result. Because of their effectiveness, injectable treatments are becoming more and more popular.

Common injectable treatments include:

  • Asclera to eliminate spider veins
  • Belotero to add volume and reduce wrinkles
  • Botox to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Juvederm to add volume and reduce wrinkles
  • Xeomin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Radiesse to add volume and reduce wrinkles

Each of these different fillers or wrinkle reducers have different benefits and have been FDA-approved for different treatments. Dr. Lamoureux can help you determine which treatment is right for your appearance goals.

What Happens During Injectable Treatments?

During injectable treatments, a trained medical professional carefully injects the solution into specific areas depending on what type of treatment you are getting. This may include:

  • In your forehead or around your eyes for fine lines (Botox, Xeomin)
  • In areas such as your cheeks, nasolabial folds or lips for a fuller, smoother, and more defined and youthful appearance (Juvederm, Beltero, Radiesse)
  • In your legs to reduce spider veins (Asclera)

They may use a topical anesthetic on your skin to help you stay comfortable during the injections. However, most patients report very little discomfort or pain with these treatments. Treatments are quick; most injectable appointments will take 15 to 30 minutes or less.


What Should I Expect After My Injectable Treatment?

Most injectables have no downtime and few side effects. You can receive these treatments over your lunch break and return to work immediately.

If you receive Asclera treatments, you may have special instructions to wear compression stockings or avoid certain activities after your treatment. Dr. Lamoureux and her staff will go over these instructions with you so you can have the best recovery possible.

Most injectables also offer fast results. Dermal fillers like Juvederm offer immediate results, helping you see fuller cheeks or lips.

Wrinkle reducers like Botox will offer the best results within two weeks.

Injectables also offer long-lasting results. You may not need to return for another treatment for a few months or even more than a year. Maintenance appointments can help you keep your younger-looking appearance long-term.
