Natural Results with Dr. Kassabian’s Injectable Techniques

blog-nat-results

There are many injectables and fillers available that aim to fill lines and prevent wrinkles, caused by aging or overly-expressive facial muscles. These injectables include Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Perlane, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse and newcomers like Xeomin. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are all botulinum toxins and are injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe lines between the brows, on the forehead, crow’s feet, nasal wrinkles, perioral lines, and lifting of the nose tip. Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane are smooth gels containing hyaluronic acid that come in several viscosities for various wrinkle depths. Sculptra is a synthetic poly-L-lactic acid which, upon injection, stimulates collagen production and Radiesse is a collagen based product, which uses calcium hydroxyapitate microspheres suspended in a gel that act as a filler while spheres stimulate natural collagen production. While it is important to know which filler is right for you, technique is just as vital for a successful treatment.  Dr. Kassabian of Lift MD Aesthetics® is renowned for his injecting techniques and prowess and is sought by some of Hollywood’s brightest stars.

We all feel like we could use a little help from time to time, especially as the years pass by more and more quickly. However, it is crucial to be informed when making a decision about the first thing people notice about you, your face. Both men and women can experience the benefits of non-invasive fillers and injectables, and Dr. Kassabian’s masterful techniques will help you achieve a more youthful look that is right for you. Over 10 years of experience combined with a board-certification in plastic surgery sets Dr. Kassabian apart from the many nurses and other medical professionals who attempt to achieve the same results with their patients.

Dr. Kassabian has spent years perfecting his techniques for injecting and can ensure a profound, yet subtle result with minimal invasion and nearly no downtime. From Liquid Facelifts to Eye Contour Rejuvenation, Dr. Kassabian’s techniques are a simple solution to looking more youthful without going under the knife. At a fraction of the cost of a surgical procedure, now may be the right time to explore your options in facial rejuvenation and feel rested in the hands of Dr. Kassabian.

Read for yourself what some of Dr. Kassabian’s patients are saying…

“The best place to get your Botox………the price per area is so reasonable and Dr. K invites you back a week later so that he can make sure that everything is perfect and if you feel like you need a little more he doesn’t charge you an additional fee. His technique is so natural, no one will know you have had anything done; you just look fresh and rested : )”

I was amazed at the way my face looked immediately after my procedure last week. It took such a short time to take away at least 10 years of the aging process from my face. The lines around my nose and mouth have disappeared and the corners of my mouth are no longer turned down.  Nothing was ever swollen and I didn’t have to hide myself for a single day.

The Men’s Liquid Face Lift

Injectables for men are more popular than ever as more and more want to look their best at work and socially. The Liquid Facelift for Men is the perfect, non-invasive solution to a younger-looking you.

The use of injectables like Botox, Juvederm, and Perlane is the easiest and quickest way to achieve a more youthful look with no downtime.

By simply injecting this gel into areas like the naso-labial folds and frown creases, signs of aging disappear.

Radiesse and Sculptra add subtle volume to give a more youthful and taut appearance to the face.

Check out Dr. Kassabian’s “Guide to Injectables” to learn more about your options:

There are many injectables out there that aim to fill lines and prevent wrinkles, caused by aging or overly-expressive facial muscles. But which injectable is right for you? Everyone could use a little help, especially as the years pass by more and more quickly. However, it is crucial to be informed when making a decision about the first thing people notice about you, your face. Both men and women can experience the benefits of non-invasive fillers and injectables, and Dr. Kassabian’s guide below will help you decide the right fit for your face. These are Dr. Kassabian’s favorite, hot on the market, fillers and injectables with minimal side effects and lasting benefits.

Botulinum Toxins:


Botox:

Dr. Kassabian’s motto is “the best plastic surgery goes unnoticed”.  With his expertise, the combination of Botox® and other injectables will address your concerns and give incredibly natural results.

Botox® is a botulinum toxin and is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe lines between the brows, on the forehead, crow’s feet, nasal wrinkles, perioral lines, and lifting of the nose tip. Common but typically unknown uses include injections to combat sweaty scalps, armpits, palms and soles, correct bunny lines on nose, soften lip and chin puckering, and minimize neck bands. It is commonly injected into the masseter muscle to reduce the width of the face and give a more V-shaped look. With no surgery and no recovery time, this is a safe option for first-time cosmetic enhancement users.

Who it’s best For: People with moderate to severe wrinkles. Botox is also used to prevent headaches and TMJ.

Dysport:

Dysport has been used in Europe for the past 18 years and is now available in the U.S. and can be used in the same manner as Botox®. Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, crow’s feet, nasal wrinkles, perioral lines and neck bands in adults. It can also be used to treat headaches and migraines. It is commonly injected into the masseter muscle to reduce the width of the face and give a more V-shaped look. Like Botox®, Dysport is also used for TMJ relief.

Who It’s Best For: Adults with moderate to severe wrinkles and for treatment of migraines and TMJ.

Dysport VS Botox: What is the difference?

From a clinical standpoint, Dysport and Botox® appear to be equivalent in their time of onset, duration of activity, and efficacy. Botox® and Dysport may treat the majority of headaches and can usually allow the patient to go off medication within 3- 6 months. It is safe to say that Dysport and Botox® are more similar than they are different.

Hyaluronic Acid Gels:

Juvederm®:

Juvederm® is a smooth gel containing hyaluronic acid that comes in several viscosities for various wrinkle depths. Use the stronger gel for nasal labial folds, cheek bones and under eye, and the softer gel for your lips. Available with or without Lidocaine, which is a numbing agent used to eliminate discomfort during the injection. Lasts up to one year.

Who It’s Best For: Those seeking to improve the appearance of facial lines or plump the lips, as young as 18 years old.

Restylane:

Restylane is one of the first hyaluronic-acid fillers to hit the market. The particles are medium sized which make this versatile filler, the more you use it, the longer it lasts.  One treatment lasts up to eight months and is best for use for under the eyes, nasolabial folds, lips and medium-depth wrinkles. Also available without or without Lidocaine.

Who It’s Best For: Used mostly for under the eyes, nasolabial folds, lips and medium-depth wrinkles. Lasts about 6 months.

Perlane:

Perlane is essentially a thick form of Restylane and works best for deep wrinkles, general lifting and straightening the jawline. This can also be used to treat facial scars and skin depressions.  The FDA states that Perlane lasts 6 months, but some have experienced the effects for several years in less mobile facial locations. Also available without or without Lidocaine.

Who It’s Best For: Those with more prominent wrinkles, nasolabial folds and lips. Best for problems involving the lower third of the face.

Juvederm VS Restylane VS Perlane:

The difference between these products is simple; particle size. Perlane has larger particles which makes it thicker and better for adding volume to cheeks and filling in the nasolabial folds around the mouth and also lasts longer. Restylane and Juvederm are great for adding volume to the lips and tear troughs around the eyes and filling in nasolabial folds.

COLLAGEN STIMULATORS:

It’s all about volumizing the face. In addition to targeting specific wrinkles and plumping lips, collagen stimulators allow you to achieve a more youthful look by stimulating your body to form collagen, which translates into volume thus improve the appearance of aging skin folds, indented skin surfaces, hollowed cheeks, and sunken eyes. Collagen stimulators are more popular now than ever before. Here are Dr. Kassabian’s leading favorites:

Sculptra:

Sculptra is a synthetic poly-L-lactic acid which, upon injection, stimulates collagen production. Most effective when injected in several sessions over several months and can last up to 2 years. Sculptra is best for replacing volume over large areas and is also known as the “liquid facelift“.

Who It’s Best For: Those suffering from facial atrophy, the filler of choice for more mature men and women. Used mostly for the cheeks and temples to add volume.  Sculptra is great for those with minimal facial muscle pads and for athletes.

Radiesse:

A collagen based product, uses calcium hydroxyapitate microspheres suspended in a gel that act as a filler while spheres stimulate natural collagen production. Best used for filling facial atrophies of the cheekbones and jaw lines. Also used on hands and for nose reshaping. Radiesse can last up to 1 year.

Who It’s Best For: Used mostly for the cheeks and temples to add volume. Results are immediate.

Marie Claire Pays Lift MD Aesthetics® A Visit

We can all use a little help here and there and shouldn’t have to seek drastic measures to achieve a desired appearance. A Marie Claire UK corespondent needed a little rejuvenation and plumping in her face. She describes her face as long and often gaunt-looking. It is common that as we get older, we tend to lose volume in the face. She decided it was time to pay a visit to Dr. Kassabian and Lift MD Aesthetics® after hearing that he would be able to help her with this problem with the use of Radiesse, an injectable filler that lasts up to a year. She learned that the change would be subtle and even revealed that although she knew she looked better, younger, fresher, many of her friends, post-procedure, thought she simply “changed her blush” or “colored her hair”. Needless to say, she was thrilled with the results and Dr. Kassabian is thrilled that another person left Lift MD Aesthetics® feeling and looking great. Both men and women alike can enjoy the benefits of Radiesse because the results are subtle enough and will not drastically change one’s appearance.
