Non-Surgical Solutions

When it comes to facial wrinkles and sagging, our biggest enemy is time itself. Skin loses elasticity as part of the aging process, causing once-plump cheeks to appear gaunt and hollow, and repetitive motions and facial expressions start to leave their mark with wrinkles and creases appearing as time passes. Beyond adding years to your appearance, facial wrinkles can also give the incorrect impression that you are tired or in a bad mood, making you appear less approachable, or causing others to misread your expression.

Minimally Invasive Treatments

Injectables are a minimally-invasive, non-surgical facial rejuvenation technique. They typically have a gel-like consistency of varying thicknesses and, when injected directly into the desired site, fill in hollow spaces or alleviate muscular tension. They are used to correct crows’ feet, laugh or smile lines, or wrinkles and creases that have developed on the forehead or between the eyes. They can also be used to add a youthful plumpness to lips or other areas, to correct facial asymmetries, or to diminish the appearance of scars and other depressions in the skin.

Why choose injectables?

Injectable treatments can be used as an alternative to, or in conjunction with, traditional cosmetic surgery methods. Though there are limits to what can be accomplished through injectables alone, their use can minimize or stave off the need for a surgical facelift.

Some reasons why injectables have been increasing in popularity as a cosmetic solution in recent years include:

Immediate Results

While the aesthetic results of cosmetic surgery take some time to fully appear as the surrounding tissue heals, injectables produce results that are immediately visible: you can watch the change take place right before your eyes.

Little or No Down Time

Rather than a surgical procedure that may impact your daily routine for a week or two, injectables allow you to continue to go about your day as usual. Your doctor may recommend that you avoid strenuous activity or direct sunlight for a period of time following the injections, but the disruption to your daily life is minimal.

Lack of Scarring

An unfortunate downside to some cosmetic surgeries is the scarring that can result, although this can typically be managed with topical ointments and careful, effective, post-surgical care. Injectables carry little risk of scarring; at most, you may experience a slight bruising or redness at the injection site that fades within days.

Duration of Treatment

Different injectables stay effective for different lengths of time, lasting from a matter of weeks to over a year. Whether you are looking for a temporary rejuvenation or something more permanent, a qualified plastic surgeon will go over your options to arrive at the solution that best suits your needs.

Deciding what treatment is right for you

Injectables are one of many categories of cosmetic intervention, and include a wide range of products. Only a qualified plastic surgeon can assist you in deciding what treatment is right for your specific needs and desires, and at Sinclair Plastic Surgery, we are happy to help. Some non-specialists such as general practitioners offer to perform injectable facial rejuvenation procedures, but it is recommended that you consult with a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon for any of these procedures, specifically a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Sinclair is not only board certified; he has been serving the Los Angeles area for decades, and is a trusted figure in a wide range of cosmetic procedures. If you are wondering if injectables will bring you a younger, fresher appearance, contact our office to schedule a one-on-one consultation today.

  • We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. Our preventative measures include:
  • Fully training all staff members to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • Appointments will be staggered to avoid congestion in the waiting room.
  • Checking temperatures of every patient that comes into the office.
  • Asking all staff, vendors and ancillary personnel to refrain from coming to the office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Asking every patient to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms and inquiring about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing, as this continues to be the most important mode of prevention.
  • Although it is something that we have always constantly done, we are now doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • Constantly sanitizing all surfaces (which we have always done as an accredited facility).

However, we have now increased this routine and are wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities multiple times each day.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this country even better than it currently is. We are closely monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will update our practice’s guidelines as needed to protect our patients.
