Many people want to explore having facial cosmetic injections, but are worried about the pain and bruising that may be involved. At Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery we take these concerns very seriously and want to make sure our patients have a wonderful experience in addition to having wonderful results. We have curated the best tools available to minimize pain on injections and minimize bruising.
Bruise Free Injections
Smallest needles: We use smaller needles (32g) than the industry standard so that injections are barely perceptible.
Micro-Cannulas for injection: Often our injectors use cannulas which also require less needle sticks and therefore a more comfortable injection with less likelihood to cause bruising.
Ice packs: We have ice packs available for our patients before and after injections to minimize the risk of bruising.
Alastin INhance Post- Injection Serum: a take home serum that helps accelerate recovery from bruising, and also enhances the appearance of skin quality. All done with a cooling applicator to provide a soothing post-injection effect.

My surgery was fast and easy, recovery was also good.
My surgery was fast and easy, recovery was also good. Doctor explained everything to me the before and after. Was very pleased and will definitely come back in the future. [Single best thing is…] I had a blepharoplasty to remove fat from my lower eyes that always made me look like I was tired. Everything was smooth the day of the surgery. My recovery time was very minimal. I had no pain. Everything went just as the doctor [said] things would go.
