Many patients who are just beginning to show signs of facial aging may benefit from Dr. LaTrenta's repertoire of injectable treatments. Dr. LaTrenta offers injectables at his Carnegie Hill Plastic Surgery offices in Manhattan and also at Williams & Company in Darien, Connecticut.
With some treatments, no anesthetic is necessary, as the needles utilized are so small that discomfort is minimal. With others, topical anesthetic agents or nerve blocks may be utilized, depending on the patient’s preference and the sensitivity of the region being treated.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, one of our most popular injectables, is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe facial lines.
JUVEDERM® XC, another popular treatment, is a smooth gel filler that Dr. LaTrenta uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around the mouth and nose. With just one treatment, patients achieve smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
Using a fine needle, Dr. LaTrenta eases injectables under the skin. The procedure usually takes about 5 minutes.
There is little or no recovery time. Exercise can be begun that evening.
Within days, you should see a marked improvement in moderate-to-severe lines. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days.
Results last from 3 months to a year.
Dr. LaTrenta recommends that you visit each manufacturer's web site to learn more about these products, their use and potential side effects.
