Who Are the Ideal Candidates?
There is no specific age requirement for injectables since everyone shows signs of aging at different times. Older patients generally get injectables to fill in wrinkles and look younger, while younger patients usually want injectables to have plumper and fuller lips. Injectables are effective for both men and women.
How the Procedure Works
Each of the different types of injectables has their own procedure, but the before-and-after process is similar for all types. Dr. Sikorski will generally apply a topical anesthetic cream prior to using the injectables to create the most comfortable experience for the patient. Once the injectable is administered, an ice pack may be applied to the affected area for optimal results. Patients will generally see results within a few hours following the treatment.
What to Expect Following the Procedure
Dr. Sikorski recommends that patients take the rest of the day off from work when they receive injectables. This is especially true if it’s the patient’s first time receiving an injectable. Any potential side effects should subside within a matter of hours, but Dr. Sikorski also suggests first-time patients schedule their appointment on a Friday, so they have the entire weekend to relax and enjoy the results.
