Facial Rejuvenation Procedures

Dr. Reza Movahed & the Mid America Oral Surgery & Implant Center are St. Louis’ experts at performing cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedures specializing in injectable facial fillers designed to improve overall appearance and confidence.

What are Injectable Facial Fillers?

Fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to smooth lines, soften creases, or enhance facial contours.

Here are just a few common problems injectable fillers, casually known as “wrinkle fillers” can address:

  • Smoothing of lines around the nose and mouth (commonly called marionette lines, smile lines, and parantheses)
  • Enhance volume to sunken cheeks or temples, achieving a more youthful appearance
  • Minimize the look of vertical lip lines
  • Plump the lips
  • Smooth out that chin crease
  • Improve overall facial features by achieving symmetrical harmony

Restore Your Image with Cosmetic Fillers

Did you know that many visible signs of aging, lines around the nose, mouth, and cheeks, can be restored with dermal fillers?
As facial tissues naturally thing out, lines become etched around areas on our face, and cheeks begin to look a little hollow. Dermal fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance.

Which Facial Filler Do I Need?

With so many options available, and depending on your specific concerns, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you without a Cosmetic Consultation. Each injectable facial filler product is uniquely formulated to have certain texture and density, which means certain products work better for certain areas of concern. Schedule a Cosmetic Consultation with our office today.

What Should I Expect During Derma Filler Treatment?

Facial fillers are non-surgical and are completed during an office visit. You will initially consult with our staff to discuss your concerns and goals. We will evaluate the areas of concern and review medical history. All risks and benefits of any possible facial rejuvenation procedure treatments will be discussed in detail with you.

It is our goal to ensure our patients understand all procedures they undergo at our office. You will need to fully disclose your medical history, including all allergies, to ensure your safety and results.

After a cosmetic treatment plan is designed and agreed upon, you may proceed with the treatment that day. The areas will be cleaned, a topical anesthetic to numb the area prior to injection may be given. Many facial fillers contain a mild anesthetic, intended to minimize discomfort during and after treatment. Your provider will then inject the filler beneath the skin in the areas of concern.

You should notice results immediately, depending on the areas being treated.

What Should I Expect After Treatment?

All patients react differently when receiving cosmetic treatments such as facial fillers. Some patients experience mild bruising or swelling, but this is temporary and will go away over the days following treatment. You may go back to your normal activities right after treatment, but take notice of any symptoms you experience that seem to hinder your routine and contact your provider.

How Long Will My Results Last?

The effects of facial fillers, and the length of time they last, will depend on the product, the area treated, and the patient themselves. The denser or “thicker” the product and how deep it is injected, will typically last longer.

To maintain the results you are happy with, simple repeat treatments can be scheduled. Each visit will give your provider the chance to readdress your concerns and optimize your results.
