FAQ’s About Fillers

Cosmetic fillers: what do I need to know?

In the world of cosmetics, getting “fillers” refers to a procedure whereby a material is injected into certain parts of your face to create a fullness and/or lift of skin and underlying soft tissue. The goal is to create a more youthful, yet natural appearance. When it comes to getting cosmetic fillers, here are some important considerations that may run through your mind.

ARE COSMETIC FILLERS THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR ME?

An amazing result starts with a careful discussion between you and your doctor. An expert injector will listen carefully and educate you on an individualized plan of injection that specifically suits the shape and contour of your facial structures. Understanding your objectives and guiding you to realistic expectations and contraindications/side effects are a vital part of every successful cosmetic consultation.

IS THIS PROCEDURE SAFE?

Every procedure has its risk, however low that possibility may be. Trust your face to an expert. Anyone can direct a needle to your face, but a true expert will be aware of potential risks of the procedure, how to reduce them and how to deal with potential complications. A big part of injection safety stems comes from your injector’s understating of facial anatomy; including the location of muscles, fat pad, nerves, and blood vessels. An in-depth knowledge facial anatomy ensures that your injector will know where to inject to get a great result, and also where NOT to inject so as to avoid a poor outcome. An expert’s actual injection technique will improve your chances of a beautiful result while minimizing your risk of a complication.

WHAT TYPE OF FILLER SHOULD I GET?

There are many cosmetic injectable products on the market today and every physician will have their personal preferences. An expert injector, however, will be knowledgeable about the material they are injecting into your face and the best choice for your personal treatment plan. For example; some fillers are more permanent, some are reversible, certain products are best suited to specific parts of the face and will produce a more desirable overall result etc. Stick to an expert who is knowledgeable about what is best suited for your specific cosmetic needs. Proper product selection for a given area is a crucial prerequisite for a fantastic result.

WHERE SHOULD I GET MY COSMETIC FILLER INJECTION DONE?

A truly skilled injector can study your individual facial contours and with their knowledge of anatomy, understanding of the filler material and skilled eye for aesthetic artistry, create a beautiful, naturally pleasing result. One reason why dermatologists and plastic surgeons are recognized as experts in performing this procedure is that their basic training includes understanding facial anatomy and mastering principles for reconstructing facial structures, giving them an “eye” for how to best rejuvenate the face. Cosmetic fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments but remember, do your research, ask questions and don’t just consider the price, but rather the expertise, patient care and reputation of your injector.

Cosmetic Fillers/Hyaluronic Acid Injections

Fight fine lines, wrinkles, texture changes, skin laxity, drooping, loss of fullness and volume and wrinkled facial appearance.

Anti-Aging Injectables & Fillers

As we age, our skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for maintaining moisture in the skin. It is this moisture that helps hydrate the skin and creates facial volume. Hydration, volume, and elasticity (from collagen) result in a youthful, healthy-looking appearance. The decreased production of hyaluronic acid and collagen over time causes:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Texture changes
  • Skin laxity and drooping
  • Loss of fullness and volume

Filler Injections can be an effective manner in which to reduce the signs of aging and restore your youthful appearance with little downtime.

A physician consult with our Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Muba Taher or nurse injector is required to discuss your options and determine if you are a prime candidate for this procedure.

Benefits

  • Non-permanent treatment which can be broken down by your body naturally over time
  • Non-surgical treatment with no to low down-time post treatment
  • Results can last up to 6 months, with some patients’ results lasting considerably longer*

Belkyra™ Injection

WHAT IS A "DOUBLE CHIN"?

A ‘double chin’ or Submental fat is an unwanted collection of fat under the chin, which can be caused by weight gain or genetics. Weight loss, however, often does not address targeted fat loss in this area, and as a result, some patients feel self-conscious about this cosmetic issue and further, feel that it results in aging their appearance.

IS THERE DOWNTIME?

Patients will see some localized swelling in the area treated for a few days post-treatment and some small discomfort akin to a bruising sensation. In some patients, some bruising may also occur, however, it can be addressed with makeup application.

What is Belkyra™ injection?

Belkyra™ is a non-animal, non-human, synthetic chemical substance that can be found in small quantities in the human body. This lecithin type chemical can disrupt the cell membranes of fat cells, thus releasing their contents (glycerol and fatty acids) and break them down safely and effectively where they are taken back to the liver and released through the kidneys through elimination.

Does Belkyra™ result in skin tightening?

No, Belkyra™ is not designed to tighten skin. Some patients who have a significant amount of submental fat may wish to discuss tightening options post-procedure.

Cherry Angiomas

A cherry angioma is small blood vessels at the surface of the skin. They appear as bright red, small, circular or oval in shape, smooth and flush with your skin or can be slightly raised. They can be found anywhere on the body. Cherry angiomas are benign (harmless) and rarely evolve into a concerning lesion.

Treatment.

Treatment options are available for the removal of cherry angiomas with minimal residual marking. A vascular laser, such as a Pulse Dye Laser (PDL), is used which constricts the angioma and causes it to turn blue. This color change signifies that the cells of the angioma have been treated. As the area heals the angioma reduces in size.

Skin Tags

Skin tags are small, soft, harmless (but annoying) skin growths that often appear on the eyelids, neck, underarms, face or under the breasts. There are several treatment options available.
