Injectables

Have you noticed deep creases across your forehead? Has your skin lost its elasticity as you've aged?

Injectables are a minimally invasive alternative to plastic surgery that can smooth wrinkles, add volume, and reduce signs of aging.

Dr. Christopher R. Hove serves Main Line, PA, from Paoli and can help you choose the correct injectable for a more youthful appearance.

Why Choose Injectables Over Plastic Surgery?

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and begins to wrinkle and sag. While plastic surgery can create dramatic results, injectables are often effective enough to give patients the aesthetic look they wish to obtain without having to undergo surgery. Injectables offer many benefits, including:

Natural-Looking Results

When performed by a licensed plastic surgeon, injectables restore your youthful appearance in a way that looks natural. You can discreetly achieve your desired look so people may not realize you’ve had work done.

Quick Procedure

This minimally invasive procedure only takes a few minutes to administer. Your entire injectables appointment, from arrival to departure, will take less than an hour.

Minimal Downtime

Injectables require no incisions or sedation. You can resume your daily activities as soon as you leave our office; however, you may have to avoid strenuous activity for 24-48 hours.

No Scarring

These injections are given through a very thin needle, so unlike many plastic surgeries, you will have no permanent marks or scars following your treatment.

Which Injectable
Is Right for Me?

/

Our Paoli, PA, office serving Main Line and beyond offers several injectables, each of which has its own unique benefits. Before receiving an injectable treatment, you will have a consultation with Dr. Hove where you will discuss your aesthetic goals. Dr. Hove will then be able to determine which injectable will best suit your needs and decide where the injections will be performed to create your desired results.

The Types of Injectables Our Practice Serving Main Line, PA, Offers

Botox

BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are forms of injectable botulinum toxin that work by temporarily relaxing your facial muscles. Dysport and BOTOX can effectively smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and slow the formation of new wrinkles around the eyes, lips, chin, and anywhere else on the face that needs youthful regeneration. Dysport is typically used for larger areas as it spreads quicker than BOTOX Cosmetic; however, BOTOX Cosmetic is great at targeting smaller areas like crow’s feet and lines around the lips.

JUVEDERM®

JUVÉDERM

JUVÉDERM® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the human body that aids in skin moisture and elasticity. Injecting JUVÉDERM under the skin adds volume to areas of the face that have begun to sag, giving you a more youthful appearance.

RADIESSE

RADIESSE® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable dermal filler that uses calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) to provide immediate, natural-looking results that can last for a year or longer. CaHA stimulates the production of your natural collagen and elastin, giving you youthful-looking skin that lasts long after treatment.

Restylane®

Restylane

Similar to JUVÉDERM, Restylane® is a filler that uses hyaluronic acid to correct moderate to severe wrinkles around the corners of your lips and nose. It can also be used to restore fullness to your lips.

Revanesse

Revanesse® is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid dermal filler that creates natural, long-lasting results. The particles within the Revanesse formula are uniquely spherical to create smooth, natural-looking results. The particles are designed to be accepted by the body, so they are broken down slower than the ingredients in other dermal fillers.

Sculptra®

Sculptra

Similar to RADIESSE, Sculptra® stimulates natural collagen production deep within the dermis. This helps restore the underlying structure of your skin, minimizing wrinkles and restoring volume. The effects of Sculptra can last up to two years.

Restylane Kysse

Restylane Kysse™ is a lip filler that adds volume, enhances the color, and smooths the lines of your lips without sacrificing flexibility. The effects of this filler look natural and can last up to a year.

JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® XC

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC

This injectable gel is used to enhance the lips and smooth fine lines around the mouth. The key ingredient in JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is hyaluronic acid which allows your lips to retain moisture and have a natural, plump feel for up to a year. This dermal filler can also be used to plump undereye hollows.

What to Expect DURING TREATMENT

The effects of injectables can last for more than a year, but only take a few minutes to administer.

Dr Hove and his team are tremendous.  They are extremely accomdating and caring.  As a physician myself, I am very particular about who I let operate on me.  Having said that, I felt completely comforable letting Dr Hove perform my septoplasty (correction of deviated septum).  He called me the night of the procedure and the following day to check in on how I was doing.  I would recommend to anyone in need of facial surgery.

See The Difference Injectables Can Make

Injectables are a great way to subtly rejuvenate your appearance. As you can see, the patient's features stay the same, but time is reversed in problem areas as wrinkles are smoothed and volume is added.

How to Make Effects Last

You've invested in your fillers and BOTOX and want the effects to last as long as possible. Keep your skin looking fresh by maintaining your fillers and BOTOX and following these tips:

Hydration

Keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Drinking plenty of water can help you retain a glowy, plump complexion long after your injectables. 

Sunscreen

The sun can dry your skin and cause wrinkles to appear faster. Stay out of the sun and use sunscreen daily when outside or sitting near a window. 

Stop Smoking

As said above, smoking breaks down the collagen in your skin and can make injectables less effective. Stop smoking to help make the effects last. 

Skincare Products

Invest in skincare that works for you. Medical-grade anti-aging skincare can help you boost your skin's radiance. Consider starting with a retinol product. 

Tone Down Your Expressions

This may be difficult if you're prone to large facial expressions. Still keep your personality, but try to reduce furrowing your brows and scrunching your nose to limit frown lines and other wrinkles. 

Cost of Injectables

/

The cost of your injectables treatment will vary based on where you're getting the treatment, what type of injectable you're receiving,  and how much is administered. We offer CareCredit® to help break the cost of treatment into affordable monthly payments.
