About Injectable Fillers
Injectable wrinkle fillers (or dermal fillers) are often utilized to replenish lost facial volume. Faces often lose volume for a variety of reasons, but weight loss and age are commonly to blame. This treatment works by incorporating the dermal filler under the surface of the skin to fill in the areas that appear sunken or hollow. Injectable fillers are a promising, minimally invasive alternative for Wareham, MA women and men desiring to even out wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin to create a younger-looking face. Dermal fillers can also be incorporated into other aesthetic treatments to reveal the results of a traditional facelift without going under the knife, the risk of scarring, and the required downtime that follows. There are a variety of fillers that can help meet the goals and desires of each patient. To decide which products are right for you, we encourage you to visit Nadomi Medspa where Dr. Nada Zaknoun can help you learn more.
The best candidates for dermal fillers are those seeking to reduce the presence of wrinkles and fine lines without resorting to a surgical facelift. In most situations, those with significant signs of aging or who have recently lost a significant amount of weight have spots on their face that are sunken and shapeless. These attributes make them great candidates for injectable fillers. Fillers are also a promising option for women and men who are not comfortable with the scars that can occur following a surgical facelift.
Prior to your injection procedure, Dr. Zaknoun will meet with you to gain insight into your cosmetic goals and decide which product will best produce them. At the time of the actual procedure, Dr. Zaknoun will administer topical numbing cream as an anesthetic to minimize the discomfort of the injections. Dr. Zaknoun will use her experience to determine the amount of filler that is appropriate and will slowly and gradually inject it via a small needle. Keeping the desired result in mind, either a portion or an entire syringe could be used during the procedure.
What to Expect
This procedure can be completed in our Wareham, MA office quickly and with very few risks. Due to the use of anesthetic, the process is usually pretty tolerable and does not require downtime. You should expect some swelling and bruising immediately after, but these symptoms will fade within a couple of days. Results typically last from three months to a full year based on the type of filler used and the area of injection. To maintain optimal results, Dr. Zaknoun may recommend touch-ups.

What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, work to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles (mostly in the forehead and around the eyes) by reducing the movement of facial muscles. Dermal fillers restore volume to the face in order to fill in deep lines, wrinkles, and certain types of scars. Injectable fillers can also be used to create fuller lips and cheeks and reduce the appearance of aging on the hands.
How long will the results last?
The longevity of your results will be dependent on the type of filler used and what area was treated. For some patients, results may last up to a year, while others may need a repeat treatment after six months. Touch-up treatments are available at our facility in order to maintain your results.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers can address signs of aging throughout your face by either smoothing static lines or adding volume. Fillers can be injected into moderate to severe parentheses, marionette, and corner lines around your mouth and nose. Additionally, they can temporarily add volume to your cheeks and lips.
