Cosmetic Fillers

Cosmetic fillers can help reduce facial wrinkles, creases, and lines, as well as promote a younger-looking facial appearance. With age, you may begin to notice that your skin is no longer as elastic or firm as it once was. Genetics, sun exposure, repeated facial expressions, and more can all lead to lax, loose skin and the formation of wrinkles. The tissues that keep your skin youthful begin to lose collagen as you age, resulting in the creation of laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, and other facial wrinkles. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer cosmetic fillers for wrinkles to help you achieve younger-looking skin.

What Are Cosmetic Fillers?

Cosmetic fillers can help to add volume to facial wrinkles, lines, and creases, resulting in a firmer, younger-looking appearance. When fillers are injected beneath the skin, they can provide hyaluronic acid to areas of depleted volume to fill wrinkled or hollowed areas of your face. The majority of cosmetic fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is an acid that is naturally found in your body. Hyaluronic acid retains moisture, providing your facial features a fuller, firmer appearance. As you age, your body begins to produce less and less hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid are scientifically designed to fill areas of depleted volume, binding to moisture and filling wrinkles and creases.

Some cosmetic fillers can also be used to shape or volumize the lips or cheeks, creating a fuller, plumper appearance. Many patients also combine procedures such as a facelift, rhinoplasty, or blepharoplasty with cosmetic fillers for even more rejuvenating results. Cosmetic fillers are generally used to improve the appearance of lax, loose facial skin. Some patients use cosmetic fillers as a non-surgical facelift option. Cosmetic fillers can also be used to see what results facial surgery may provide before undergoing a facelift or another procedure. However, patients also enjoy the non-surgical facial rejuvenation that cosmetic fillers can quickly provide. On the other hand, some cosmetic injectables may be used to create fuller, plumper lips for a more pleasing facial appearance. In some cases, cosmetic injections can even help to fill or volumize cheeks that appear hollow due to aging.

What Can I Expect Before My Cosmetic Fillers Treatment?

Prior to your cosmetic fillers procedure, Dr. Asaadi will meet with you to assess the area you wish to have treated. After evaluating any existing wrinkles or creases, Dr. Asaadi can recommend a cosmetic injectable that will be most effective at helping you achieve your particular goals. The ideal candidate for cosmetic fillers is looking to treat mild-to-moderate facial wrinkles and facial lines without surgery.

Cosmetic fillers provide long-lasting, natural-looking results, but continuing sessions are required to maintain results. Because cosmetic fillers are a versatile wrinkle treatment, Dr. Asaadi is able to tailor your cosmetic fillers procedure to best meet your individual goals. While many patients choose to undergo full facial rejuvenation with cosmetic fillers, some patients choose to treat specific areas of their face with cosmetic injections.

What Can I Expect After My Cosmetic Fillers Treatment?

Because cosmetic fillers are a non-surgical wrinkle treatment, there is usually little to no downtime after your cosmetic injections. Many patients are able to resume normal activity almost immediately after receiving cosmetic fillers. Most patients are able to see cosmetic filler results in the first few weeks after their initial treatment, with continuing results appearing in the months following a procedure. While each dermal filler is different, many patients can enjoy natural-looking results for 6-12 months. Because many cosmetic fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, results can be reversed with a simple injection of the enzyme called hyaluronidase, which will completely process any cosmetic filler that is made of hyaluronic acid. Dr. Asaadi is a highly trained plastic surgeon who focuses on providing natural-looking results the first time so that patients are pleased with their cosmetic filler results.

The Importance Of Choosing A Highly Experienced Plastic Surgeon For Cosmetic Fillers

It is important that you choose a skilled plastic surgeon for cosmetic fillers who understands your individual anatomy, as every patient’s facial structure is different. Dr. Asaadi stresses the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced, and board-certified plastic surgeon when considering cosmetic fillers.
