Injectable Facial Fillers

In your face, round and smooth contours are a sign of health and vitality. Loss of facial volume, sagging tissues, thinning lips and new lines or folds in the face are characteristics of aging. In studies of identical twins, observers rate the twin with rounder facial appearance as looking younger. The new generation of facial injectable fillers allows us to restore fullness and vitality to your face, as well as your chin and cheeks, during a simple office visit.

Safe, effective and long lasting results can be obtained from any of the three commonly used categories of facial fillers: Hyaluronic Acids (Restylane, Juvederm, Beletero), Calcium Hydroxylapetite (Radiesse) or Poly-L-Lactic Acid (Sculptra). The products each have slightly different indications, injection techniques, duration of action and cost. Dr. Khosh has had extensive experience with each product, which allows him to discuss the most appropriate product choice based on your particular needs.

The full line of injectable facial fillers available through Dr. Khosh include:

Injectable Neuro-Modulators

Neuro-modulators are terrific, long-lasting, office-based treatments that erase wrinkles and frown-lines in the forehead and upper face. Frown lines in the forehead and wrinkles around the eyes develop from over activity of the underlying facial muscles. These injectable medications act as immobilizers that keep the muscles from contracting and forming the lines and wrinkles. Dr. Khosh offers the following neuro-modulators:

In addition to facial fillers and neuro-modulator injectables, Dr. Khosh also offers fat dissolving injections. These are used to break down fat under the chin. The brand available through Dr. Khosh’s office is Kybella.

Injectables and fillers can help reduce the signs of aging and improve many common facial issues that can detract from a person’s natural beauty. For more information on these products, contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Khosh to see if any of them are right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fillers

There is minimal discomfort from injection of facial fillers. In our practice, we minimize that discomfort by applying numbing cream to the face prior to injection. Some of the available facial fillers have anesthetic as an ingredient.

Bruising rarely happens as a result of facial filler injection. We recommend that patients refrain from using Aspirin, Motrin, Advil, or related products to minimize the risk of bruising. The supplement Arnica-Montana, taken by mouth, can help resolve any bruising. Additionally, makeup can be worn immediately after the injections.

Dr. Khosh will help you choose the best facial filler based on your physical anatomy and desired aesthetic outcome.

You may want to avoid heavy exercise immediately following the injection. However, you may resume full physical activity after several hours.

Related Procedures

Filler injections add volume and erase lines and depressions that develop in your face as a result of aging. Other cosmetic treatments can be performed to enhance your aesthetic results. Fractional laser treatments are a wonderful way of refreshing the facial skin tone and color, and erasing patchy discolorations. Botox treatments can help erase fine lines around the eyes and the forehead. Neck liposuction will rid you of unwanted fullness in the neck. Blepharoplasty will remove skin redundancy and heaviness in your eyelids. In select patients, a facelift operation will be significantly more effective than repeated injections of facial fillers. During a consultation visit, Dr. Khosh will review any appropriate procedures that can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.
Leah G.
Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.
Frieda S.
i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
