There are many different factors that contribute to the lack of youthfulness, volume, and freshness of the skin over time. A loss of collagen production can increase fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, a loss of skin elasticity, and more.
At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer various facial rejuvenation procedures to help patients achieve a glowing complexion, and completely refresh the skin. These procedures can enhance the appearance of the skin by restoring vibrancy and fullness, leaving patients with a rejuvenated complexion.
Which Facial Rejuvenation Procedures Are Recommended For Refreshing The Skin?
There are a variety of facial rejuvenation procedures and treatments to choose from dependent on the desired goals and specific target areas of each patient.
Dr. Asaadi and his team can help determine which treatment is best for you. There are quick and easy, non-invasive to minimally invasive solutions such as HydraFacial®, Lumecca®, and cosmetic fillers.
HydraFacial® is a specialized facial treatment that restores the skin’s health and provides patients with a youthful complexion. This facial combines cleansing, extracting, and hydration resulting in clearer skin. It is a non-invasive four step process that improves fine lines, wrinkles, vibrancy, congested skin, enlarged pores, and more.
Lumecca® is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses advanced Intense Pulsed Light Therapy to directly target and reduce skin imperfections. Sunspots, spider veins, rosacea, and other skin irregularities are reduced, and the overall appearance of the skin is improved. This is a minimally invasive procedure that requires little-to-no downtime. Lumecca® provides patients with a refreshed, younger-looking appearance.
Cosmetic fillers are used to help reduce facial wrinkles, creases and lines, and add volume to the face. Genetics, sun exposure, aging, and lifestyle choices can all contribute to loss of collagen reducing facial volume and leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Cosmetic fillers can improve the appearance of lax, loose facial skin, add volume, and fill in the lines and wrinkles for a younger-looking appearance. There are many different types of fillers that are available to target different problem areas.
Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have regarding facial rejuvenation procedures, as well as other plastic surgery 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!

Cosmetic injectables not only reverse the signs of aging, but they can also prevent some of the most noticeable signs of aging from showing in the first place.
As a result of taking preventative action against aging, patients will experience fewer wrinkles and an overall smoother complexion as years pass.
It’s a common misconception that cosmetic injectables are highly noticeable, making those who have them appear “worked on” or “plastic.”
When performed properly by an experienced injector, these procedures will yield natural and youthful-looking results.
What are the Benefits of Preventative Injectables?
Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
Lessens movements that causes wrinkles
Combats genetic aging
Provides more subtle anti-aging results
How Can Botox Prevent Aging?
As fine lines and wrinkles can start to appear from repeated facial movements, starting injectables earlier can help to slow down the use of these muscles. But when do patients know when is the right time to start seeking cosmetic injections? Experts agree that when patients begin to see the first signs of facial folds or wrinkles it is reasonable to start considering injectables to prevent further aging. Our NJ plastic surgeon can meet with you to determine what is best for you and if you are an ideal candidate for preventative cosmetic injectables.
What to Expect Before Preventative Injectables
Before receiving any preventative injectables, Dr. Asaadi will meet with you for a consultation. During this process, he will evaluate any signs of aging you present and create a customized treatment plan to effectively address them and take steps towards preventing more from appearing.
What to Expect After Preventative Injectables
Depending on the type of injectable administered, patients will see results in the days following their procedure. Cosmetic injectables are minimally-invasive and require little-to-no downtime. Therefore, patients are able to return to their daily activities almost immediately following their visit.
What Signs of Aging Can Cosmetic Injectables Prevent?
When Should I Start Preventative Injectables?
An ideal age to start preventative injectables doesn’t exist, because everyone ages differently depending on various factors such as genetics, skin type, sun exposure, etc. However, once faint lines begin to appear, it may be the right time to start preventative injectables. These faint lines are likely to later develop into deep wrinkles and preventative injectables are helpful in slowing this process. The age of patients seeking preventative injectables ranges from mid-to-late 20s to 30s.
What Options are Available for Preventative Injectables?
At Asaadi Plastic Surgery we offer a wide variety of cosmetic injectables to prevent the signs of aging. Dr. Asaadi will help determine which treatment is best for you based on your desired results and problem areas. Treatment options include Botox®, Juvaderm®, Perlane®, Belotero®, Voluma®, and Volbella®.

The signs of facial aging are often the most noticeable, causing many patients to seek facial rejuvenation procedures in NJ. While many patients are great candidates for facelift surgery, non-invasive procedures can offer solutions to facial aging without having to go under the scalpel or take extended downtime.
These procedures provide long-lasting, natural-looking results and are ideal for patients looking to combat the signs of facial aging.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is effective in treating blemishes, damaged skin, and other signs of aging. Using precise laser technology, laser skin resurfacing can be tailored to fit the individual goals of each patient.
There are various laser options available to treat different facial concerns. Dr. Asaadi is able to help patients decide which option is best for achieving their desired results. Laser skin resurfacing can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures.
Chemical peels are used to treat imperfections of the skin, often caused by aging, genetics, or excessive sun exposure. Through different levels of exfoliation, chemical peels can correct a wide variety of skin irregularities on the face.
There are three levels of chemical peels; light chemical peels, medium chemical peels, and deep chemical peels. Each peel targets a different layer of the skin and provides different results. Dr. Asaadi will help you decide which level of chemical peel is necessary to achieve your desired rejuvenation results.
Botox® is a cosmetic injectable that reduces the signs of facial aging. Botox® is effective in treating wrinkles that form around the mouth, eyes, and forehead due to repeated facial muscle contractions.
Botox® works by temporarily limiting the facial expressions that lead to fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure takes approximately 10-20 minutes to perform and can easily be tailored to fit the desired results of each patient.
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin-tightening treatment that is used to lift and tone facial tissue that has lost elasticity or begun to sag. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy® uses direct sound waves to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.
Because of its minimally-invasive nature, Ultherapy® patients can return to their regular activities almost immediately after undergoing the procedure. Visible improvements can be noticed following your first treatment, but the results will continue to develop in the months to follow.

As you age, wrinkles and hollows may form under the eyes, making you look older than you actually are. As your skin begins to lose firmness and elasticity, the eyes are often the first feature to show signs of aging. Non-surgical blepharoplasty can refresh the eyes for a younger-looking appearance.
What Is Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty?
Non-surgical blepharoplasty uses cosmetic fillers and Botox® to treat undereye wrinkles, depressions, and volume loss. Because non-surgical blepharoplasty does not require surgery, patients experience no downtime and are immediately able to get back to daily activities. Non-surgical blepharoplasty can achieve long-lasting and natural-looking eye rejuvenation results that can last years before touch up appointments are needed.
Compare non-surgical blepharoplasty and traditional eyelid surgery below:
Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty: Wrinkles and hollows are improved with cosmetic fillers and Botox® with no recovery period necessary. Results are long-lasting, but routine touch up appointments will be needed in the future.
Traditional Eyelid Surgery: Loose skin is surgically removed and repositioned with a recovery period of 1-2 weeks. Results are longer-lasting than non-surgical blepharoplasty.
What Can Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty Treat?
Non-surgical blepharoplasty can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases around the eyes. Additionally, non-surgical blepharoplasty can also effectively treat volume loss that contributes to depressions under the eyes. This hollowness can be corrected with non-surgical blepharoplasty for a fuller, more youthful appearance.
How Long Do Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty Results Last?
In the majority of cases, non-surgical blepharoplasty results can last years before additional treatments are needed. The amount of time between non-surgical blepharoplasty treatments varies on a patient to patient basis. Dr. Asaadi can help determine when touch up appointments are needed.

With age comes a loss of elasticity and firmness of the skin. This manifests itself in our face with wrinkles, creases, and lines, especially in emotive areas, including around our mouth and eyes.
If you would like to reduce signs of aging, cosmetic fillers may help you achieve your goals.
Cosmetic fillers are designed to give the face a naturally fuller and firmer look by injecting hyaluronic acid into areas of depleted volume. Hyaluronic acid, which is produced naturally by the body, retains moisture, keeping the face plump and youthful.
As we age, our body produces less hyaluronic acid, resulting in looser and more wrinkled skin. Cosmetic fillers can restore some of this moisture, filling in wrinkles and creases for younger-looking skin.
Types of Cosmetic Fillers
Juvederm®: Juvederm® dermal filler is comprised of hyaluronic acid and can treat nasolabial folds, wrinkles, and fine lines.
Perlane®: Perlane® is a cosmetic filler that works deep into the skin to treat moderate-to-severe facial lines and folds.
Belotero®: Belotero® is a lighter dermal filler designed to create subtle, natural-looking results in the treatment of facial wrinkles, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and hollowed under-eyes.
Voluma®: Voluma® can treat hollowed cheeks by restoring volume, contours, and shape in the cheeks.
Volbella®: Volbella® cosmetic filler can volumize the lips and create a youthful appearance by smoothing out marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and lines around the mouth.
With so many cosmetic filler options, it is necessary you choose a plastic surgeon who understands your individual anatomy and goals. Dr. Asaadi will help you decide which treatment will work best for you, and assist you in achieving natural-looking results.
Cosmetic fillers can provide a quick facial rejuvenation without the downtime of surgery, or can be combined with surgical treatments for enhanced results. Changes in appearance can typically be seen in the weeks following treatment, with continuing results.
