Cosmetic injections can help you look your best in time for the holidays! These injectables can reduce the signs of aging and promote a more refreshed appearance with no healing time required. A variety of cosmetic injections, including Botox®, Juvederm®, Perlane®, Belotero®, Volbella®, and Voluma®, can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and facial furrows while also volumizing areas that have lost definition. Learn more about your cosmetic injectable options below.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® is specially designed to reduce nerve impulses and relax muscles. Made from the botulinum toxin protein, Botox® can be injected around the mouth, eyes, and forehead to improve the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet for a smoother, more rested appearance.
How Do Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid—a natural substance found in your body. These fillers, including Juvederm®, Perlane®, Belotero®, Volbella®, and Voluma®, can accomplish numerous procedure goals. Cosmetic fillers can replenish natural-looking facial volume, correct hollowing, fill-in superficial fines lines, and reduce deeper wrinkles. The choice of filler(s) depends on your procedure goals. Voluma® can enhance cheek definition, Volbella® can volumize the lips, Belotero® can target marionette lines around the mouth, and Juvederm® can reduce eye wrinkles.
Which Areas Can Be Treated With Cosmetic Injections?
Cosmetic injectables can treat the upper, mid, and lower face. Popular treatment areas include the brows, forehead, cheeks, lips, smile lines, chin, and jawline.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Cosmetic injections can be completed in minutes and require no downtime or recovery. Patients can resume their daily activities upon finishing treatment.
What Kind Of Results Can Cosmetic Injections Achieve?
Cosmetic injections can achieve natural-looking enhancements to your facial profile. Botox® and dermal fillers are designed to temporarily reduce the signs of facial aging. Results can last over a year before maintenance treatments are required.

Calf augmentation can add natural-looking shape and definition to the calves for a more sculpted lower body. Many patients are not satisfied with the size of their calves, even after consistent exercise; this is because genetics play a large part in determining overall calf shape. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer calf implants as a long-lasting solution to a lack of calf size. Your calf implants can be customized by shape in order to best complement your individual proportions. Learn more about calf augmentation below.
How Does Calf Augmentation Work?
During calf augmentation, your plastic surgeon will place either 1 or 2 silicone calf implants, depending on your leg size and shape. Incisions are made at the back of your knee and a pocket is created. Your calf implants are then placed into this pocket.
What Can Calf Implants Achieve?
Calf implants can increase calf size while also enhancing calf definition for a more contoured lower body. Calf augmentation is designed to achieve long-lasting results that fit in with your overall profile. Ideal calf implants should add natural-looking size and shape without seeming disproportionate to your thighs or quads.
What Kind Of Downtime Can I Expect?
Calf augmentation patients should expect moderate swelling and bruising to occur for a few weeks following the placement of calf implants. Strenuous activity should be avoided for 1-2 months to allow for optimal healing, but patients can usually return to work and normal walking within 2 weeks.
Who Are Ideal Calf Implant Candidates?
Calf implants are not just for men! Both male and female patients can undergo calf augmentation to accentuate calf size. If you are dissatisfied with the shape of your calves and would like to add natural-looking definition to your legs, then calf implants may be right for you.
Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about calf implants, as well as our other body contouring treatments. Contact our New Jersey office at 973.731.7000, our New York office at 212-938-0158, or you may request an appointment online today!

Rejuvenate your eyes and restore youthful-looking eyelids without undergoing surgery. Dr. Asaadi’s Young I Rejuvenation is a non-surgical blepharoplasty technique that uses Botox® and cosmetic fillers to improve wrinkling and fine lines around the eyes. Unlike traditional eyelid surgery, Young I Rejuvenation can achieve natural-looking results with no downtime or recovery. Learn more about non-surgical blepharoplasty below.
Young I Rejuvenation Overview
During Young I Rejuvenation treatment, Botox® is injected around the eyelids to target crow’s feet and fine lines. Botox® can temporarily ease facial wrinkles caused by muscle activity, leading to a smoother-looking appearance. Next, cosmetic fillers are strategically injected into deeper wrinkles and hollows under the eyes. Dr. Asaadi typically utilizes Juvederm® as his filler of choice for Young I Rejuvenation. Juvederm® is injected into lower eyelid wrinkles using a small cannula to allow for increased precision. Juvederm® can fill in hollows to add natural-looking definition to the eyelids.
Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty Results
Non-surgical blepharoplasty can yield temporary, natural-looking results. Young I Rejuvenation can ease crow’s feet, wrinkles, and hollows around the upper and lower eyelids. Results can typically be seen immediately. Non-surgical blepharoplasty can last years before follow up treatments are necessary.
Young I Rejuvenation Recovery
Since Young I Rejuvenation is completely non-surgical, there is no healing time required after undergoing treatment. Non-surgical blepharoplasty patients can resume their daily activities immediately. Slight swelling or inflammation may occur for a very brief period of time immediately following Young I Rejuvenation before subsiding.
Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty Candidates
Patients who are looking to reduce wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes are generally considered candidates for non-surgical blepharoplasty. Additionally, patients seeking a non-invasive alternative to traditional eyelid surgery may be Young I Rejuvenation candidates. Dr. Asaadi can discuss if non-surgical blepharoplasty is right for you during your consultation at our New Jersey or New York plastic surgery offices.
Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about Young I Rejuvenation, Botox®, and cosmetic fillers, as well as our non-invasive treatments. Contact our New Jersey office at 973.731.7000, our New York office at 212-938-0158, or you may request an appointment online today!

Are you looking to improve your complexion and skin texture? Over time, a variety of factors may affect your skin tone, including sun damage, blemishes, acne scarring, wrinkles, and fine lines. Recent skin care advancements have led to an effective anti-aging solution – microneedling and PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment. When used together, micro needling and platelet rich plasma therapy can improve skin texture and elasticity for youthful-looking results.
Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, creates microscopic holes in the skin using a COSMOPen tool. These tiny punctures stimulate a natural healing response from your body, resulting in the production of new collagen and elastin fibers to reinforce skin structure. Micro needling can be performed on the face, neck, and arms, as well as other areas of your body.
PRP Treatment Overview
PRP treatment, also known as platelet rich plasma therapy, uses the platelet rich plasma found in your blood to aid healing. During your PRP procedure, a blood sample is taken and your platelet rich plasma is isolated and spun in a centrifuge. Your PRP is then injected into the treatment area to aid your body’s natural healing mechanisms.
How Do Micro Needling And PRP Work Together?
Micro needling and PRP can work together to improve skin tone and texture while stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. Microneedling can help the skin absorb platelet rich plasma injections, while PRP therapy can further accentuate your skin’s healing response following micro needling.
What Type Of Results Can I Expect?
Combining micro needling treatment with platelet rich plasma therapy can achieve natural-looking enhancements to your complexion. Microneedling and PRP can treat a variety of different conditions, including sun damaged-skin, wrinkles, acne scars, and blemishes. Microneedling results are usually seen after 1 treatment, but 3-6 sessions are typically recommended for ideal improvements to skin texture.
Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about microneedling and PRP, as well as our non-invasive treatments. Contact our New Jersey office at 973.731.7000, our New York office at 212-938-0158, or you may request an appointment online today!

Would you like to improve the appearance of your eyebrows? Many patients are not satisfied with their eyebrows due to a sparse, thinning look. Microblading is an innovative non-surgical treatment to enhance your eyebrows for a more defined appearance. Asaadi Plastic Surgery provides microblading to help patients achieve fuller, beautiful eyebrows. Learn more about microblading below.
What Is Microblading?
Microblading, also known as microstroking or eyebrow embroidery, uses permanent makeup techniques to emulate your natural eyebrows. During your micro blading procedure, a specialized micro-pen is used to create symmetrical strokes on the skin. These strokes are colored and shaped to closely match your eyebrow hair.
Micro Blading Procedure Overview:
The initial part of your microblading procedure involves drawing the desired shape of your eyebrows with a removable pencil liner, as well as finalizing the desired color. Next, your eyebrows will be carefully enhanced using a micro-pen, which delivers strokes onto your skin. A topical anesthetic is usually administered during your microstroking procedure to minimize any discomfort.
Is There Downtime?
There is no downtime necessary after undergoing microblading and you can resume your daily activities immediately. Your eyebrows will heal over the next 2-4 weeks. Patients are encouraged to avoid exposure to the sun, as well as certain creams, for the initial weeks following microblading. You will be given specific aftercare instructions following your microstroking treatment.
What Kind of Microblading Results Can I Expect?
Microblading can achieve natural-looking, pronounced eyebrows. Patients can typically see final results after 1 month. Microblading is designed to yield long-lasting results.
Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about microblading, as well as our permanent makeup procedures. Contact our New Jersey office at 973.731.7000, our New York office at 212-938-0158, or you may request an appointment online today!
