Many women and men struggle with prominent signs of aging, such as frown lines and hollow cheeks. These creases and loss of volume are natural, but the process can be sped up by sun exposure, lifestyle habits, diet, or your genetics. You don’t have to have an invasive procedure such as the facelift to reduce these unsightly lines and wrinkles. The “liquid facelift” with Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini uses one or more injectables to restore volume and diminish signs of aging. 

Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will discuss your options and help you determine the best way to achieve your cosmetic goals and provide a luminous appearance. Schedule your consultation at Westchester Surgical Arts today at (914) 295-2662 to see if injectables are right for you. 

Types of Injectables at Westchester Surgical Arts 

Injectables offer a minimally invasive way to reach and maintain a youthful look with no downtime. There are two main forms—Neuromodulators that contain botulinum toxins such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers that restore volume and “fill in” lines and wrinkles. Follow up treatments are needed to improve or maintain all injectable results. We offer a variety of injectables at Westchester Surgical Arts, including: 

BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®  

These products work by limiting or stopping muscle movements that lead to the formation of lines in the forehead, between the brows, and on the outer corners of your eyes (Crow’s feet). BOTOX® or Dysport® treatments take just 15-30 minutes and require no downtime. Results can last three to five months. 

Juvéderm™ Dermal Fillers 

The Juvéderm™ line of dermal fillers uses a hyaluronic acid gel that smoothens out fine lines and creases around the nose and mouth by restoring lost volume. Juvéderm can also be used for lip augmentation for plump lips. Juvéderm Ultra Plus is a more powerful variation that addresses deeper, more severe wrinkles. Juvéderm Voluma XC is the only injectable FDA-approved as a non-surgical treatment for cheek volume restoration. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini often recommends Voluma XC for those who wish for an immediate improvement of profile contour. 

Juvéderm treatments take approximately 15-30 minutes, and the longevity of the results depends on which form of Juvéderm is used. Juvéderm Voluma XC can last up to two years while others may last six months to a year. Follow up treatments are needed to improve or maintain results. 


Radiesse® is a unique calcium hydroxylapatite-based dermal filler that reduces wrinkles and fine lines and increases volume to provide a youthful facial contour. This injectable also triggers collagen growth over time, which makes it an excellent and enduring method of facial rejuvenation. As your body absorbs the filler solution, collagen production increases to preserve the fullness of Radiesse® results. Radiesse® treatments require little time and can be done over your lunch hour, and you can enjoy the volumizing benefits for up to a year. 


Sculptra® is an anti-aging injectable that works beneath the skin’s surface to replace lost collagen and volume. This dermal filler can smooth out deep nasolabial folds, smile lines, chin wrinkles, and flattened temples and cheeks. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini introduces the Sculptra® solution into key areas of the face to steadily restore a youthful appearance over a series of 15-to-30-minute treatment sessions. Sculptra® is an effective alternative to traditional surgical facelifts. After your initial injections, you’ll start to see subtle improvements that ultimately lead to significant, long-lasting facial rejuvenation for two years or longer. 


Restylane® is a clear gel that is designed to act like your body’s naturally produced hyaluronic acid. This dermal filler can visibly correct facial wrinkles and folds (such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds or smile lines) and increase lip volume. The Restylane Lyft® can boost your cheeks and smooth out smile lines by adding fullness to your mid-face region. Your wrinkle-free appearance and fuller lips can last from six months to a year. 

Kybella® Double Chin Treatments

Kybella® is the first injectable that is FDA-approved to target the submental (beneath the chin) fat that causes a “double chin” appearance. This injectable uses deoxycholic acid, which is a natural fat absorber your body already produces. The safe solution works to liquefy and decrease the stubborn fat found beneath the chin without any incisions, scarring, or lengthy recovery. Individual results do vary, but Kybella® can provide our Westchester patients with a long-lasting solution to the double chin dilemma. 

Depending on your cosmetic goals and the amount of excess fat targeted with Kybella® treatments, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini may recommend a series of up to six sessions. Each treatment takes 15-20 minutes and may include up to 50 injections. Kybella® sessions are scheduled around one month apart, and studies indicate the vast majority of patients see significant results after four treatments with this injectable. Results may be permanent if you maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. 

Excessive Sweating Treatments with Injectables

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that brings about inordinate amounts of sweat in the armpits, hands, palms, feet, and face. This condition can be safely treated in the comfort and privacy of our Westchester, New York facility. The same botulinum toxin that makes BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® so powerful on wrinkles is what makes for an effective way to curb excessive sweating. 

The minimally invasive treatment will limit sweat production for three to five months after each treatment. While individual outcomes vary, you’ll start to notice sweat reduction within a few days of your session. There’s usually no preparation necessary, and each treatment takes 15-30 minutes. Follow-up maintenance treatments with further injections can keep your heightened perspiration at bay.

Vaginal Rejuvenation with diVA® Laser Treatments

The diVa® laser therapy improves the internal vaginal walls to address a variety of issues that often happen after giving birth. Women give so much of themselves and their bodies to pregnancy and motherhood and may struggle with vaginal dryness and looseness, incontinence, irritation, and experience pain during intercourse. The diVa® treatments can address those issues and restore your confidence and comfort. The treatments take as little as three to five minutes, and there’s virtually no pain or discomfort. This is a perfect option for the busy mother who is struggling with common vaginal changes after having children.

Laser Skin Treatments with Halo™

This dual laser technology works to restore a radiant complexion and reverse skin damage caused by sun exposure, age, injury, or certain skin conditions. Halo™ utilizes two wavelengths, one of which focuses on the outer layer of your skin to address pigmentation concerns while the other reaches into the deeper skin layers to reverse the damage and promote your body’s natural healing process. The non-invasive treatment comes with little to no discomfort, and many of our Westchester patients go back to their regular activities right away. Stunning results can be seen several days following your Halo™ treatment.

Laser Hair Reduction with Forever Bare BBL™

A lifetime of shaving or waxing can add up to a substantial amount of time and money. The Forever Bare BBL™ laser treatments can get rid of unsightly ingrown hairs and razor burn for good. This technology offers fast, nearly-painless hair removal on multiple body areas from your face to your feet. Most patients compare these treatments to the feeling of a hot stone massage, and they take as little as 30 minutes. Individual results will vary as some may need more treatments than others depending on the area and hair and skin quality.

Radiant Skin with Forever Clear BBL™ Laser Treatments

Acne is a skin condition affecting men and women of all ages, and finding the right treatments takes significant trial and error, which could leave you with more scarring and painful breakouts than before. The Forever Clear BBL™ treatment involves a soothing gel and pulses of light from the handheld device to penetrate the deep tissues of your skin and eliminate acne concerns. The procedure takes 20-30 minutes, which means you can achieve radiant skin over your lunch break. Follow-up treatment sessions are typically necessary and combined with an effective skin-care plan can give you a glowing complexion for many years.

Youthful Skin with Forever Young BBL™ Laser Treatments

Sun exposure, chronic acne, and a variety of skin conditions all cause lasting damage to your face and body. The Forever Young BBL™ technology uses BroadBand Light™ to alter the expression of your genes that are linked to aging and the lifespan, making the quick procedure the only one of its kind proven to rejuvenate the skin and reverse damage down to the molecules. This laser technology can address age spots, acne, skin discoloration, inflammation, and redness on the face, neck, arms, chest, and hands. Forever Young BBL™ treatments take 30 minutes, and you can return to work or your normal activities right away.

Restore Skin with ProFractional Resurfacing

A youthful complexion relies on your body’s natural collagen production, which slows down as you age. We can encourage this production through a variety of ways, including with ProFractional Resurfacing. This skin rejuvenation laser treatment stimulates your body’s healing abilities to address lines and wrinkles, scarring, enlarged pores, skin discoloration, loose skin, and other common skin problems. ProFractional Resurfacing can be combined with other laser treatments such as BBL™ to provide maximum results.

Laser Skin Tightening with SkinTyte II™

Loose, sagging skin is one of the most frustrating aspects of getting older. You’re not only dealing with fine lines and wrinkles but changes to the skin on every area of your body. The SkinTyte II® uses pulsed light technology to fight the effects gravity and aging has had on your skin by utilizing infrared energy to promote your body to produce more collagen, leaving you with tighter skin. This laser treatment is a great way to achieve firmer skin on the face, neck, hands, stomach, thighs, and even the buttocks.
