Non-Surgical Facial Treatments at Our Long Island Office 

Non-surgical facial treatments at our Long Island office are performed in one of three ways—using Botox, soft tissue fillers, or facial fat grafting.


Botox and other neuromodulators (Jeveau) like it work by paralyzing specific facial muscles, resulting in muscle relaxation and reduced wrinkles. However, it can’t restore volume like soft tissue fillers or fat grafting.

Best for: 

  • Wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive facial movements
  • Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
  • Forehead lines and furrows
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows

Soft Tissue Fillers

Soft tissue fillers like Teoxane RHA, Restylane, and Juvéderm are injectable substances (hyaluronic acid) that restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial features like cheeks and lips. The chosen filler is injected beneath your skin to fill in the target area and will last several months, being safely absorbed into the body as it wears off.

Best for: 

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Thin or flat lips
  • Sunken cheeks or temples
  • Hollowed areas of the face
  • Facial scars or depressions

Facial Fat Grafting

Facial fat grafting, also known as fat transfer or autologous fat transplantation, is a surgical procedure that involves harvesting fat from one area of your body, usually through liposuction, and transferring it to your face. The harvested fat is purified and injected into specific areas of your face to restore volume and improve facial contours.

Best for: 

  • Sunken cheeks
  • Hollowed temples
  • Deep facial wrinkles
  • Loss of volume in the midface
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Uneven or irregular facial contours

How Long Do Non-Surgical Facial Treatments Last? 

Non-surgical facial treatments are a great alternative to surgery, but they aren’t always permanent. Your results can last months to years or even longer, depending on your procedure.

  • Botox: The effects of Botox typically last around 3 to 4 months. However, as the duration is dependent on the paralytic effect, those with faster metabolisms may have less longevity. In any case, ongoing injections are required to maintain your appearance.
  • Soft tissue fillers: The longevity of soft tissue fillers varies depending on the type of filler used. Generally, hyaluronic acid fillers like RHA last between 6 to 18 months though the specific area treated, and individual factors can also influence the duration.
  • Facial fat grafting: Transplanted fat cells have the potential to be permanent as they integrate with your existing facial tissue. However, some fat absorption can occur over time, and touch-up procedures may be needed to maintain the desired volume. The longevity of facial fat grafting can vary among individuals, but the results are generally considered to be long-lasting compared to temporary fillers.

Your activity, health, and lifestyle will determine the longevity of your non-surgical facial treatment. It’s also essential to consider who will perform your procedure. When it comes to non-surgical facial treatments, Long Island has many options, but Harris Plastic Surgery stands out.
