Injectables Q & A

What are Injectables and Fillers?

Injectable fillers are a safe and effective way to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, enhance certain features, or slightly change your facial anatomy. They create a fuller look and reduce the appearance of sagging and aging skin.

BOTOX and dermal fillers are injectable medications that offer a quick and convenient way to improve the appearance of sunken cheeks, crow’s feet, and frown lines. BOTOX is typically used to resolve unwanted lines and wrinkles that form on the forehead and between the eyes.

Fillers on the other hand add volume or replace lost volume to different areas of the face. Injectable fillers, commonly referred to as soft-tissue fillers, face fillers, or dermal fillers are FDA approved products that typically contains three basic ingredients:

  • Biosynthetic polymer
  • Collagen
  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA) 

These ingredients work together to increase facial volume while naturally increasing collagen and elastin production. In addition, fillers often help the skin accumulate and retain moisture resulting in a healthy and vibrant glow.

Injectable Fillers are a low-risk, non-surgical procedure performed by a qualified Injectables Specialist. Dr. Nazam is our in-house Injectables Specialist at Chantilly Medical Center.

He will work with you to create a treatment plan and schedule for the best results. There are many options available such as BOTOX, Restylane, Juvederm. Sculptra and Radiesse. Dr. Nazam will handpick which product will work best for your end goals.

What areas do they treat?

Fillers can be used all over the face to treat a variety of areas. Injectable fillers are a minimally invasive way to shape and smooth the contours of your face. This is accomplished by targeting areas where the structural proteins and subcutaneous fat has been lost.

Patients may wish to use filler in the upper face in the tear trough, and dark under-eye area to restore volume and vibrancy to the face. Adding volume to the cheeks and cheekbones often improves the appearance of lower wrinkles around the mouth.

Patients who still maintain youthful volume and elasticity of the skin often use dermal fillers to enhance certain features, most commonly adding volume to thin lips.

However “Liquid Rhinoplasty” is quickly becoming a popular non-invasive alternative to surgery for improving the appearance of the nose and harmony with the facial anatomy.

Fillers are commonly used by Injectables Specialists to:

  • Smooth out crow’s feet
  • Improve the appearance of frown lines
  • Worry lines
  • Reduce the appearance of scarring
  • Add volume to an area where there are depressions
  • Increase volume, collagen, and elastin
  • Even out facial skin texture from acne scarring
  • Improve nasolabial creases
  • Adding volume to thin lips
  • Liquid Rhinoplasty
  • Deep Fillers to create a more defined jawline, chin, or cheekbones

Some patients may choose to pair BOTOX or injectable fillers with our Venus Legacy Skin Tightening treatment options for a complete facial rejuvenation plan resulting in powerful natural collagen and elastin production, and therefore glowing, plump skin.

Who’s a candidate?

Candidates for injectable fillers at Chantilly Medical Centre include a wide range of patients, from those looking to soften the appearance of crow's feet to those looking to change their appearance using precisely placed deep fillers to contour the face.

While most candidates for BOTOX and fillers are in the early to mid-thirties age bracket, with obvious signs of aging.

Derma fillers are quickly becoming popular in all age groups for the ability to subtly change and enhance specific facial features. In 2020 alone more than 13 million non-invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in the US. BOTOX and dermal fillers were the most popular procedures listed.

Dr. Nazam, our Injectables Specialist in Chantilly, VA will be happy to arrange a consultation with you to determine if you are a good candidate and create a treatment plan to achieve the natural look you are aiming for.

How long do treatments typically last?

Each cosmetic injectable product on the market has a different consistency, is used for treating different areas of the face, and metabolizes in the body, at different rates. This is why it is imperative that you choose a certified Injectables Specialist to fully evaluate your facial structure and choose the product and technique that will give you the natural results you desire.

For deeper injections used in the treatment of loss of structure and support in the cheeks, forehead, and temples, treatments may last as long as 12 months - 2 years.

Injections given closer to the surface of the skin with a thinner product, such as those used for fine lines and wrinkles, metabolize much quicker and will last 6-12 months.

Lip fillers due to the increased amount of movement in these muscles break down and dissolve at a much faster rate and need to be maintained more frequently.

If you are not happy with your results, hyaluronic acid fillers are reversible! While most patients absolutely love their new look. It can be a shock for some - or simply not what they were expecting Dr. Nazam can inject an enzyme that dissolves your fillers until you are happy with the outcome.
