I have had two procedures done by Dr. Samra, rhinoplasty in 2000 and breast augmentation this year. There arent even words to describe how happy I am with every single thing about Dr. Samra and his office.
In today’s cosmetically oriented world, Botulinum toxin and facial fillers, or dermal fillers, are a critical part of maintaining one’s appearance. They provide immediate results with no downtime and they can often be delivered in less than an hour. At Samra Plastic Surgery in Monmouth, Middlesex, and Union Counties, our use of fillers is delicate, never seeking to make our patients look like different people. Rather, we use facial injectables to enhance their natural beauty and bring out the very best qualities of their face.
Why facial fillers?
At Samra Plastic Surgery‘s Jeunesse Medical Spa, we use facial fillers—also called dermal fillers—for two primary purposes: cosmetic enhancement and age management. Here are some before and after examples:
Dermal fillers for cosmetic enhancement is done when a patient wishes to enhance or add to some aspect of their facial appearance. As an example, perhaps a patient has cheekbones he or she feels are lacking in volume. By using a facial filler, our plastic surgeons can create the perfect apples in the cheeks while simultaneously lifting the skin. This not only creates heightened cheekbones, but it also smoothes the surrounding skin for a more refreshed appearance.
Facial fillers for age management is more concerned with wrinkles and specific volume loss. As we get older, the collagen in our skin starts to break down. This breakdown contributes to wrinkles, fine lines, hollowed cheeks, and sagging jowls. In order to treat these conditions, facial fillers are used to simply restore one’s youthful appearance. Years of training and experience, our surgeons know how volume loss affects each aspect of the face. This gives them the knowledge necessary to apply dermal fillers to restore youth without drastically altering your appearance.
At Samra Plastic Surgery‘s Jeunesse Medical Spa, we use injectables to correct the following cosmetic issues:
- Crow’s feet
- Loss of volume in the cheeks
- Sagging jowls
- Lack of definition in the jawline
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Thin lips
- Bags under the eyes
- Vertical lines on the upper lip, also known as smoker’s lines
- Fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face
- Restore volume to aging hands
Different facial injectables for different areas
There are many different types of Botulinum toxins and facial fillers and each one specializes in treating different parts of the face.
FACIAL FILLERS: Fillers behave differently. This means different facial and dermal fillers will produce different results when applied to the same area of the face. Our plastic surgeons have a complete understanding of how each filler interacts with the body, allowing them to apply them in the proper areas. During your initial consultation for dermal fillers, our cosmetic plastic surgeons will go over these different types and ensure you understand exactly what will be done.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC®
Hyaluronic acid is used to temporarily ease wrinkles as a filler. It can also be used for lip enhancement. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC can last for 6 months or longer.
A non-surgical cheek lift or a cheek augmentation lasting for up to 2 years.
Delivers fuller lips and treats the vertical lines around the lips for up to 1 year.
Treats nasolabial folds and lasts as long as 18 months.
Radiesse is a calcium-based filler for nasolabial folds and cheek enhancement. Its two-fold purpose works to immediately add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients.
Turn back the hands of time…
In addition, Radiesse is the first and only filler deemed safe and effective by the FDA to correct lost volume in hands due to aging.
Radiesse minimizes the visibility of veins and tendons to reveal a smooth, natural-looking result that won’t give away your age.
Restore a more youthful look to your hands with Radiesse.
Sculptra, a new facial injectable treatment for correction of shallow or deep “laugh lines” and other facial wrinkles gives subtle results over time by replacing lost collagen. With an average of three treatments, this new anti-aging product can last up to 2 years.
BOTULINUM TOXINS: After years of squinting, laughing, frowning, and worrying, the skin around the eyes and on the forehead often develops expression lines and wrinkles that may make you look older, tired, or stressed.
Botox is used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows for about 3 months.
Similar to Botox, Dysport, is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) for approximately 3 months.
Like both Botox and Dysport, Xeomin is used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) for about 3 months.
Jeuveau™ is the newest FDA approved injectable to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines or eleven lines) for about 3 months.
THE DOUBLE CHIN: Rid that double-chin forever.
Affordable, FDA-approved Kybella®, non-surgically destroys fat cells under the chin, permanently, using Deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Most patients achieve desired results with 2-4 Kybella treatments.
