Injectables

Facial rejuvenation can be achieved without invasive surgery at our plastic surgery office serving Cleveland and Mayfield Heights. BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, and fat injections are just a few of the injectable treatments we offer that can treat lines and wrinkles and add volume to facial features. Dr. Jason Leedy and his team of professionals at the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute can make your skin look younger and smoother with these effective treatments.

At the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute, we provide the latest non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments in addition to our cosmetic surgery options. Our facility serving Cleveland and Mayfield Heights-area patients offers BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, and other injectables to help enhance your skin’s appearance and bring out a more youthful glow. These popular treatments are designed to quickly reduce facial lines and wrinkles and add volume and contour to areas of the face. Although the results may not last as long as those of more invasive aesthetic enhancement options such as face lift or brow lift, occasional touch-up treatments can maintain results for years to come.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Our patients favor BOTOX® Cosmetic because it provides immediate relief for the lines and wrinkles that appear on the forehead, at the base of the nose, and crow’s feet crinkles at corners of the eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived from botulinum toxin. The solution works to reduce facial signs of aging by temporarily weakening specific muscles in the face, preventing them from contracting, and therefore causing wrinkles to disappear. Dr. Leedy administers BOTOX® Cosmetic via several tiny injections in a procedure that can take as little as ten minutes.

The skin-smoothing effects of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment can last as long as four months. Our Cleveland, Canton, and Akron patients report that BOTOX® treatments require fewer injections over time to achieve the same exceptional results when treatments are regularly administered. This is confirmed by BOTOX® Cosmetic patients worldwide.

If you are a resident of Mayfield Heights or Cleveland who has considered BOTOX® Cosmetic but have hesitated because you are unsure of its safety, it will be helpful to know that BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment of its kind approved by the FDA.

Restylane®

Restylane® is a multi-purpose dermal filler designed to add volume to the lips and to reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines. Areas including the forehead, chin, and cheeks can be significantly rejuvenated with Restylane® treatments for a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Restylane® is also an excellent method of lip enhancement, providing a fuller, more sensual aesthetic to the lips that can enhance facial appearance.

The solution that composes Restylane® is made from a naturally-occurring substance in the human body, therefore it requires no allergy testing and no waiting period. Restylane® treatments typically last 30 minutes or less, depending on the number of areas being treated. This makes Restylane® another one of our effective cosmetic rejuvenation procedures that can be performed in the time it takes to go to lunch!

Results of Restylane® are frequently long-lasting, lasting from six months to a year in many patients. Follow-up Restylane® injections can help to maintain results for an even longer period. There is no recovery time, so patients can resume normal routines immediately after treatment.

Patients in the Cleveland area who receive Restylane® treatments may also consider other procedures, such as liposuction, rhinoplasty, or tummy tuck, for a more complete aesthetic makeover.

Sculptra® / Radiesse®

Sculptra® is an innovative new treatment primarily designed to add volume to facial features, such as hollowed-out cheeks. The loss of fat in areas of the face, or lipoatrophy, creates a sunken appearance that often accompanies natural aging. Lipoatrophy is also a common condition suffered by people with HIV. Sculptra® can help; Sculptra® is injected under the surface of the skin and works to stimulate cells to produce their own collagen. The collagen can then gradually thicken the skin and restore facial volume. Sculptra® can also reduce wrinkles and the appearance of eye rings, as well as correct skin depressions and scars. One of the chief benefits of Sculptra® is that the results are extremely long-lasting, and can last up to two years after a single treatment. Sculptra® is not derived from animal proteins, and therefore does not require allergy testing.

Radiesse® is another long-lasting deep dermal filler and is suited for improving deep grooves between the nose and mouth, giving pleasing results for upwards of one year.

Fat Injections

Fat injections, also known as liposculpture or fat transfer, provide effective lip augmentation, in addition to filling in wrinkles and creases in the face. This aesthetic enhancement procedure involves taking fat cells from one area of the body, typically the back or buttocks, and injecting them into the lips or other areas of the face. The substance is from your own body, so there is no need for allergy testing. Fat injections are often desirable methods of facial rejuvenation because they are known to have long-lasting results, some patients maintain original results for years. Follow-up treatments can keep the aesthetic benefits of fat injections going for many more years to come. Fat injection typically takes less than an hour to complete, and there is no recovery time.
