At ICLS, we offer a large selection of top cosmetic injectables – from neuromodulators to dermal fillers and beyond. Often counted among the most popular non-surgical options for aesthetic enhancement, injectables can achieve a wide range of benefits, especially when administered by an experienced provider. We frequently recommend injectables for patients who wish to enhance their facial aesthetic without the need for surgery or extensive recovery.
Neurotoxin injectables are primarily composed of botulinum toxin, a substance that can temporarily inhibit facial muscles. By doing so, these treatments can create a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that helps maintain collagen and hydration. These products can replenish volume in the cheeks, lips and elsewhere on the face, and address a variety of age-related concerns.
RADIESSE® contains calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, which can stimulate the skin’s collagen production. As a result, RADIESSE® can effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and folds.
Unlike other fillers, Sculptra® is made of poly-L-lactic acid, which deeply penetrates the skin to prompt the creation of collagen. While Sculptra® typically works more gradually than other injectables, its results tend to be much longer-lasting.
Short for “platelet-rich plasma,” PRP is a versatile treatment using a patient’s own plasma. The platelets found in your plasma contain growth factors that can stimulate tissue regeneration and healing, which can in turn improve skin texture and appearance. PRP is frequently performed alongside other skin rejuvenation treatments, namely microneedling.
At ICLS, our HA boosters (or “hyaluronic acid boosters”) are administered in a series of treatments over three months. The uncrosslinked hyaluronic acid contains cosmeceuticals which hydrate and brighten the complexion.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my facial fillers last?
The amount of time you’ll enjoy your results depends on how quickly your body processes the filler and which products we decide to use. Hyaluronic acid fillers typically last for 3-6 months. Radiesse lasts longer. With this treatment, patients can enjoy results for up to two years.
How is Sculptra® different from other facial fillers?
Unlike hyaluronic facial fillers, the main ingredient in Sculptra® is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It’s classified as a collagen stimulator helping to gradually restore fullness to facial wrinkles and folds. Sculptra® can take months to take full effect, but patients experience long-lasting, natural-looking results that can last up to two years.
How much do fillers cost?
Injectable filler pricing begins $600 per treatment. Sculptra® injections begin at $1,000. Fat transfer pricing is highly personalized to each patient’s needs and considers accompanying procedures, such as when fat transfer is done during a tummy tuck. Contact ICLS for more information.
Aftercare and Recovery
Patients can help to reduce the possibility/amount of swelling by using ice packs on the areas that were treated. Also, if you have a history of cold sores, Valtrex may be prescribed for you to reduce the risk of an outbreak.
In the event of a bruise or redness, your nurse can apply an anti-microbial make-up to limit the appearance of post treatment symptoms, and topical arnica applied to the treatment area can sometimes shorten the duration of any bruising.
