Facial Fillers

While you may not want other areas of your body to be plump, a little plumping may be just what you need to make your face look younger and more attractive. It might be time for you to try facial fillers, a nonsurgical way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and add volume to thin or hollow facial features.

Many men and women in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC have found that Restylane® and other facial fillers are effective treatments for achieving a more youthful look. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Houtan Chaboki has spent his career providing his patients with the best options for facial rejuvenation.

Dr. Chaboki uses a variety of facial fillers to reduce the signs of aging. These include:

Are Facial Fillers Right for You?

Thanks to their incredible versatility, dermal fillers are appropriate for a variety of people, especially those bothered by lines or wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid‐based fillers, such as JUVÉDERM, are well tolerated since hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. If you're looking for a simple, straightforward solution to many types of wrinkles but aren't yet ready to undergo surgery, or you'd like to complement or maintain the results of your surgery, fillers are likely right for you.

JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel

As we age, our skin changes. The natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish over time as wrinkles and folds form. But, with JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel (from the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic), you don't have to just sit back and let it happen. Recently approved by the FDA, JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is a "next‐generation" dermal filler that, like Restylane, is made with hyaluronic acid. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and hydration to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, such as "smile lines" or "parentheses."

Restylane®

Restylane is a popular nonsurgical option for those in Maryland and Northern Virginia who desire facial rejuvenation. The human body maintains healthy skin and firm underlying tissues by producing hyaluronic acid, which bonds with water in the body to maintain the volume and smoothness we associate with youth. Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient in Restylane, which is injected into the skin with a very fine needle.

Restylane bonds with the body's own moisture to smooth the skin and replenish volume. It helps reduce the lines and folds that develop around the mouth, eyes, nose and forehead. By returning lost volume to tissues beneath the skin, Restylane can also strengthen the chin, sharpen the cheeks, and, as some Maryland patients have discovered, enhance the lips.

Your beautiful new look will appear immediately and last longer than collagen. A maintenance procedure can retain your more youthful‐looking results.

Completely biocompatible with the human body, Restylane requires no allergy test. The most common side effects are temporary redness and swelling, which usually subside in just a few days.

BELOTERO BALANCE®

BELOTERO BALANCE is another dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. It provides immediate improvement of facial lines, folds, and wrinkles, with results that last several months. BELOTERO BALANCE was developed to better integrate with your skin and adapt to your unique facial contours. Patients love the smooth results.

RADIESSE®

Young, healthy skin contains plenty of collagen to maintain its volume, strength, and elasticity. The face gradually loses volume over time with the natural aging process. RADIESSE wrinkle filler stimulates collagen production. Results are immediate and potentially last up to one year in some patients. RADIESSE has also been approved to be mixed with lidocaine anesthetic for enhanced patient comfort.

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Sunken cheeks and facial volume loss caused by facial aging and sun damage can now be gradually improved with Sculptra Aesthetic, a safe, synthetic injectable material known as "poly‐L‐lactic acid." This injectable filler stimulates collagen production gradually for long‐lasting results.

Similar to other facial fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic is quickly administered in the office using local anesthesia. Improvements appear gradually as you naturally produce facial collagen, which takes approximately 6 weeks. Optimal cosmetic results usually require at least 2 treatments or more, each spaced at least 6 weeks apart.

While the cosmetic improvements can last up to 2 years, Sculptra Aesthetic is not permanent. Many patients return periodically for maintenance treatments.

These fillers can be used alone or in conjunction with other facial cosmetic treatments, such as BOTOX Cosmetic, other dermal fillers, or facelift surgery near Maryland.

Your Experience

Although each product is unique, their treatment experiences are relatively similar. Administered right here in our office, you can expect to be done with your treatment in less than an hour. Your practitioner starts by cleansing your skin. You may then be asked to make certain facial expressions to help your injector visualize exactly where your treatment will be most effective. Finally, you'll feel a brief stinging sensation as your practitioner makes the injections. Most patients compare the sensation to that of an insect bite.

Immediately following your visit, you can safely return to your regular daily activities, although you may experience swelling, bleeding, bruising, or itching around your injection sites. These symptoms usually go away on their own within a day or so.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can injectables be "mixed and matched"?

Absolutely. It's not uncommon to undergo treatment with more than one type of injectable product at once. In fact, this approach even has its own name — the nonsurgical facelift. BOTOX Cosmetic is also a popular complement to injectable fillers. During your consultation, you and Dr. Chaboki discuss your specific concerns as well as good solutions for each.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

We price our dermal fillers by the unit, so the cost of your own treatment depends on the areas you'd like treated as well as the products we determine are the best fit for you. During your initial consultation, we discuss pricing to help you make an informed decision.

How often can I have touch‐ups?

There's no evidence that having repeat procedures is harmful, so it's safe to come in for touch‐ups when you begin to notice your results fading. The results of hyaluronic acid‐based fillers typically last between 6 months and over a year, depending on the specific product and its placement. We discuss the likely longevity of your results during your consultation.

Only after a comprehensive evaluation can Dr. Chaboki determine the appropriate option for you. To learn more about facial fillers and other med spa services, request a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Chaboki online or call his office at (202) 800-2085.
