Filler FAQs: Where Exactly Can You Get Fillers Injected?

Rejuvenate without surgery! Dermal fillers are an excellent option for restoring youthful beauty without the downtime, scars, and incisions that surgery can bring. Treatment is quick, often 30 minutes or less and many patients can resume their regular activities immediately. Fillers are versatile and can rejuvenate most of the face, and a few unexpected areas too. Where exactly can you get fillers injected? Find out below and then call our offices to schedule your filler consultation with Dr. Dale or Dr. Michelle Abadir.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Today’s modern fillers are some of the best we’ve ever used. Years ago, collagen was the filler of choice, but results didn’t last long and many people were allergic. The fillers we now use are better than ever. Many are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your body that provides lasting and natural looking filler results. Other fillers provide a framework to boost your own body’s collagen production. We also offer permanent fillers.
With so many options, there is truly a filler for most every patient. Our doctors are highly skilled injectors and have worked extensively with the many fillers we offer. We’ll help you find the right options to smooth and perfect your skin.

What Areas Can Receive Treatment with Fillers?

Fillers are versatile and aren’t just for the face. Do you have areas that could benefit from an increase in volume? Find out how fillers can shape and smooth your most troublesome areas:
• Facial Lines and Wrinkles- Lines, creases, and wrinkles are no match for dermal fillers. Many filler options can be used to smooth lines and wrinkles. Each filler has unique benefits and we’ll find the options that are most compatible with your trouble spots. Juvederm is an excellent hyaluronic filler consisting of tiny microscopic particles that instantly treats facial wrinkles. Restylane is also a hyaluronic filler with a larger particle size, more suitable for deeper lines and creases. Belotero is the one of the lightest fillers available and is used on fine lines around the eyes, mouth, and nose. Sculptra can be used to improve appearance of deep lines over time, helping to rebuild collagen levels.
• Chin- Some fillers can provide temporary enhancement, like results from a facial implant, without the need for surgery. We often use Radiesse to enhance the chin without an implant.
• Cheeks- The cheeks are one of the first areas to lose volume. Fillers like Juvederm Voluma XC can instantly restore volume to the cheeks, filling in hollows and restoring shape. Radiesse is another excellent option for restoring volume to facial hollows and sagging skin.
• Lips- Fillers are often used as a non-surgical lip augment option. Just one treatment can leave you with full, sensuous, and youthful lips for several months.
• Neck- Fillers can provide dramatic rejuvenation to the face, but many patients find their necks give their true age away. We’ve developed a unique combination treatment using the filler Sculptra and Thermage to fade wrinkles on the neck and to tighten skin. We can also add in a laser treatment if you a brown or red collar around the neck.
• Hands- If your hands have prominent veins or tendons, a filler treatment can help to restore volume. Radiesse is commonly used for hand rejuvenation and can be combined with other treatments like Thermage or IPL to improve the appearance and quality of the skin.

High school reunion coming up? Make it look like you just graduated!

You want to look mature, without looking old. Fortunately, cutting-edge dermatology centers like Abadir Associates have you covered with their dozens of cosmetic and medical dermatological treatments.

Whether you have two months or two weeks to prep for your reunion, we can help!

Treatments for Two Weeks Before Your Reunion

Juvederm

You want your new self to look effortless, but with this easy treatment it really might be. Juvederm is an injectable, meaning it’s injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles, creases, and create volume in the face. It’s also used to plump lips and fill in sagging areas of the face and eye sockets.

Procedure: You will get a series of injections of the solution, which will be done after around 10 minutes.

Recovery: You might see some swelling for up to two weeks.

Lasts: for about 6 months.

Botox & Dysport

Botox & Dysport are some of the quickest, safest, and most popular ways to get rid of expression lines and deep wrinkles.

Procedure: It’s only a series of small injections, which should be done in less than 10 minutes

Recovery: Almost none

Lasts: 2-4 months

Treatments for a Month Before Your Reunion

IPL Photofacial

Here’s the light side to laser skin treatments: IPL uses pulses of light to treat brown spots, facial veins and capillaries, redness, rosacea and signs of aging.

Procedure: Depending on your type of skin, a series of sessions 2-4 weeks apart is recommended.

Recovery: There is no downtime, but if you do get residual redness it may last for up to a week after treatment.

Treatments for Two Months Before Your Reunion

Sometimes you want your newer, younger skin to be entirely yours. No worries, there a lot of skin rejuvenation procedures that renew the skin using the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion works by physically removing outer layers of skin along with dead skin, oils, and other imperfections. When the skin grows back, you’ll notice improvements in your acne scars, wrinkles, chicken pox scars, lesions and so much more.

Procedure: You will be given a numbing agent or anesthesia to help with any kind of discomfort. Then a device combined with a freezing technique will work on one small area at a time

Recovery: After 7-14 days your wounds should fully heal and after 6 weeks any residual redness should be gone.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels work similarly to dermabrasion, but instead, it uses chemicals to blister and peel the outer layers of skin. Chemical peels can improve skin tone, reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and signs of sun damage. There are actually a wide variety of chemical peels:

  • Micropeels: perfect for mild skin conditions like hyperpigmentation.
  • Dermaplaning: couple this with a light peel to create glowing skin and remove annoying peach fuzz.
  • Facial with Light Chemical Peel: make sure your skin is hydrated with this combo facial and light peel.
  • Acne Clearing Facial: made specially to help with acne and acne scars.

Recovery: Your skin will feel like it’s been sunburned for a few days, and the stronger the peel, the longer your recovery.

After these treatments, your high school reunion photos will look like a high school graduation. These treatments and more will be available to you at Abadir Associates, so contact them now for a consultation.

Fat Dissolvers- Kybella

For the dreaded double chin, we offer an exciting injectable option, Kybella. This injectable contains deoxycholic acid, a substance that aids the body in the breakdown of dietary fat. When injected under the chin it destroys fat cells, providing lasting improvement in the appearance of your profile.

Kybella is completely non-surgical. Downtime is minimal, if any. Most patients need a couple of treatments to achieve their best results.

Lip Injections: A Non-Surgical Alternative to Implants?

Lip implants aren’t for everyone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy fuller lips. Lip injections are a cost effective and less invasive way to fill in and perfect the lips. Yes, the results are temporary, but many of the treatments take just a few minutes and the results are long lasting. Plus, injectable treatments don’t require incisions or a painful recovery period.

If you’ve got questions about lip injections, ask us. We’d love to help you understand how these treatments can help you enhance your lips without surgery.

Botox and Dysport

Many of the lines and wrinkles around the mouth are caused by muscle activity. Botox and Dysport can relax these muscles. The wrinkles fade away leaving you with a younger looking appearance. Results can last up to 4 months per treatment. Botox isn’t just for crow’s feet; it’s a great option for the lips.

Botox and Dysport are both a type of botulinum toxin. This cosmetic treatment is very popular; last year about 6.7 million cosmetic treatments were performed.

Lip Fillers

Dermal fillers are another option for enhancing the lips. We can use fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, and to sculpt the lips, fill in hollows, and lift the skin. Results are often immediate and can last for up to a year.

We offer a variety of different filler options to ensure natural looking, stunning results for each patient. Each filler has a different consistency. We’ll choose the best filler (or combination of fillers) for your problem areas and sculpt your lips to perfection. We also offer a permanent lip filler for interested patients.

Surgical Corrections

As the body ages some changes to the lips require surgical correction. We can remove the overhanging skin at the corners of the mouth and shorten the distance between the nose the upper lip (this distance increases with age) for a more youthful look.
