Cosmetic Fillers (Injectable Fillers)

If you are considering Cosmetic Fillers

As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped-up begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow's feet or facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs.

Soft-tissue fillers, most commonly injectable collagen, fat, or restylane, can help fill in these lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. When injected beneath the skin, these fillers plump up creased and sunken areas of the face. They can also add fullness to the lips and cheeks. Injectable fillers may be used alone or in conjunction with a resurfacing procedure, such as a laser skin resurfacing treatment, or a recontouring procedure, such as a facelift.

Knowing your Cosmetic Filler options

Injected collagen, fat, and restylane are primarily used to improve the appearance of the skin's texture. They can help fill out deep facial wrinkles, creases and furrows, "sunken" cheeks, skin depressions, and some types of scars. They can also be used to add a fuller, more sensuous look to the lips.

Injectables are usually not sufficient for severe surface wrinkles on the face, such as multiple vertical "lipstick lines" that sometimes form around the mouth. Instead, Dr. Asaadi may suggest a resurfacing technique, such as chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or laser treatments. Rather than filling in facial lines, resurfacing methods strip away the outer layers of the skin to produce a smoother appearance.

Deep folds in the face or brow caused by overactive muscles or by loose skin may be more effectively treated with cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift or browlift. Injectables are sometimes used in conjunction with facial surgery procedures; however, injectables alone cannot change facial contour the way surgery can.

Keep in mind that Dr. Asaadi is a specialist that can offer you the full gamut of the most advanced treatments ranging from cosmetic surgery, refinishing techniques, laser therapy, injectables, and the use of other fillers. You and Dr. Asaadi may determine that a single procedure or a combination of procedures is the best choice for you.

Planning for your Cosmetic Filler Treatment

In your initial consultation, Dr. Asaadi will evaluate your face - the skin, the muscles and the underlying bone - and discuss your goals for the surgery. Dr. Asaadi will help you select a treatment option based on your goals and concerns, your anatomy and your lifestyle. Dr. Asaadi will ask you about your medical history and drug allergies, and check for conditions that could cause problems, such as active skin infections or non-healed sores from injuries. Collagen injections are generally off limits for pregnant women, individuals who are allergic to beef or bovine products, patients who suffer from autoimmune diseases, and those who are allergic to lidocaine (the anesthetic agent contained in the syringe with the collagen material). For more specific information about the contraindications and risks of collagen use, ask Dr. Asaadi for the manufacturer's brochure for patients.
