Using Cosmetic Fillers to Achieve a More Youthful Appearance

POSTED ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2020 AT 5:10 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

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.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about cosmetic fillers, as well as our other facial rejuvenation treatments. Contact our New Jersey office at 913.731.7000, our New York office at 212.938.0158, or you request an appointment online today!

These fillers, including Juvederm®, Perlane®, Belotero®, Volbella®, and Voluma®, can accomplish numerous procedure goals.

Reduce The Signs Of Facial Aging With Volbella®, Voluma®, & Belotero®!

POSTED ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 06, 2017 AT 10:51 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Rejuvenate your appearance with the latest cosmetic fillers! Volbella®, Voluma®, and Belotero® can each reduce the signs of aging in different ways. Voluma® can treat hollowing of the mid-face, while Belotero® and Volbella® can address smile lines, as well as wrinkles around the eyes. These treatments can be completed in-office and require no recovery time. Learn more about these cosmetic fillers below.


Volbella® is a specially designed dermal filler that can add volume to the lips and improve smile lines. Made from hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring substance found in your body), Volbella® can be safely injected into the lips to add volume and achieve a more plump appearance. Additionally, your plastic surgeon can inject Volbella® into wrinkles around the mouth, including smile lines, to add natural-looking fullness to the mid-face.


Voluma® is a hyaluronic acid filler that can add definition to the cheeks. Voluma® has a firmer consistency than other cosmetic fillers and can be injected deeper into the skin to provide longer-lasting volume. Voluma® can be inserted into the cheeks to reduce hollowness and lift flat cheeks.


Belotero® is a lighter cosmetic filler made from hyaluronic acid that can improve fine lines and marionette lines around the eyes and mouth. Belotero® is softer than most dermal fillers, making it an ideal option to smooth superficial facial lines found around the mouth, lips, and eyes. Belotero® can be injected close to the surface of the skin to add natural-looking volume.

Which Cosmetic Filler Is Right For Me?

Your plastic surgeon can discuss which dermal filler will best fit your procedure goals during your consultation. Choosing a skilled, experienced plastic surgeon is important when considering cosmetic fillers in order to achieve ideal results. Each patient’s facial structure is unique and an advanced understanding of the facial anatomy is required to administer dermal fillers.

Volbella®, Voluma®, and Belotero® can each achieve natural-looking results that may last years. Follow-up treatments are required to maintain your youthful-looking results.

How To Age Gracefully: Cosmetic Fillers To Sustain Facial Rejuvenation Results!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2016 AT 2:31 PM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

For patients who have undergone a facial rejuvenation procedure in the past, it is important to maintain results in order to sustain a youthful-looking appearance. Regular touch-ups with cosmetic fillers can guard against fine lines, hollowing, or wrinkles caused by aging and sun exposure. These non-surgical injectables temporarily restore volume to different areas of the face, enhancing the results of a previous facial rejuvenation treatment for years to come, including a facelift, neck lift, eyelid surgery, brow lift, rhinoplasty, or facial implants.

How Do Cosmetic Fillers Work?

Cosmetic fillers are made from a naturally-occurring substance known as hyaluronic acid. These injectables are carefully injected into facial areas that have lost volume or definition to add fullness. Cosmetic fillers can smooth fine lines, improve the appearance of hollows, and reduce facial folds that form naturally over time. In addition to hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Botox® can be utilized to improve facial wrinkling; this substance is made from botulinum toxin and stops nerve impulses by relaxing facial muscles.

What Types Of Cosmetic Fillers Are Available?

There are a variety of cosmetic injectables available to treat specific facial conditions. Juvederm®, Restylane®, Voluma®, and Belotero® are all hyaluronic acid fillers that can achieve youthful-looking results. Botox® is another option to maintain natural-looking volume.

What Areas Can Cosmetic Fillers Treat?

Cosmetic fillers can treat the upper, mid, and lower facial regions. Fine lines and facial furrows around the brows and eyelids can be corrected, as can hollowing around the mid-face. Injectables can also reduce smile lines and wrinkles above the lips. Patients suffering from a loss of jawline definition can undergo treatment with dermal fillers to enhance contours, as well.

What Is Treatment Like?

Cosmetic injectables are a completely non-invasive treatment option, meaning there is no surgery involved. Fillers are carefully injected into the treatment area(s) in less than a half hour. There is no downtime associated and patients can resume daily activities upon completing their procedure.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

After undergoing your cosmetic filler treatment, you can expect to see results in the following days. Results usually last 6 months to a year. Follow-up treatments are recommended to maintain your youthful-looking results.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about cosmetic fillers or Botox®, as well as any of our other facial rejuvenation 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!

How Dr. Asaadi’s “Botox® Test” Can Properly Diagnosis Malar Mounds And Festoons!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2016 AT 9:45 AM by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

Under-eye bags often present aesthetic concerns for patients, as they can result in a tired or older-looking appearance. Two specific conditions—malar mounds and festoons—both present themselves as severe under-eye bags that can affect confidence in one’s look. At first glance, it is extremely difficult to tell the cause of these troublesome conditions.

As a result, Dr. Asaadi has pioneered the “Botox® Test” to discern the true cause of malar bags and festoons. Botox® is a cosmetic injectable that temporarily relaxes muscles and prevents nerve impulses. This simple test is used in order to correctly diagnose your under-eye bags so that a proper treatment plan can be formulated. See how it works below!

Undergoing The Botox® Test

In order to find the root cause of your malar mounds, Dr. Asaadi will carefully inject a small amount of Botox® into the orbicularis oculi, also known as the muscle around your eye. One possible cause is the presence of excess fat around the eye and upper cheek, which is causing your puffy appearance. Another possible reason for the occurrence of malar bags is muscle laxity around the eye that leads to sagging skin around the area.

If your Botox® injection causes your malar mounds to temporarily get worse, then this is a sign that your under-eye bags are caused by muscle laxity. However, if there is no change in the appearance of your festoons after your Botox® Test, then this shows that your condition is caused by excess fat around the eye.

Upon finding the reason for your under-eye bags, Dr. Asaadi can then formulate a proper treatment plan to improve the appearance of these issues. The Botox® Test is an important tool in the correction of malar mounds and festoons. Here at Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we aim to provide solutions to these issues that yield natural-looking results, as well as inspire confidence.

Dr. Asaadi and our staff welcome any questions you may have about malar bags and festoons, as well as our Botox® 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!
