Injectable Fillers Omaha
Over time, our skin begins to lose naturally occurring components such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which is what causes people to develop lines and wrinkles. Injectable fillers are injectable gel solutions that help reduce deeper lines or wrinkles and plump up uneven areas of your face. Unlike BOTOX®/Xeomin®, fillers work by restoring volume rather than relaxing into facial muscles.
What Are the Benefits of Using Injectable Fillers?
Injectable fillers are an excellent option for Omaha patients who want to revitalize their appearance without getting a facelift. While a facelift will eventually be required to restore your youthful appearance, injectable fillers will keep you looking young and refreshed until a facelift is absolutely necessary.* By beginning with non-surgical treatment, patients can:
- Smooth deeper wrinkles and lines.
- Revolumize and soften deep creases.
- Enhance lips and cheeks.
Fillers can be applied to any area of your face to reduce the telltale signs of aging or create the shape and volume your want.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Injectable Fillers?
Virtually anyone who would like to improve the appearance of their facial signs of aging can benefit from injectable fillers. Whether you would like to plump up your thin lips, decrease the laugh lines running from your nose to the corners of your mouth, reduce the appearance of horizontal lines on your forehead, or renew lost volume to the apples of your cheeks, there is an injectable filler for you.
Before choosing an injectable filler, we recommend visiting our practice for a one-on-one appointment with Dr. Ayoub. During your meeting, he will review your overall health history, talk to you about your overall goals and desired results, and perform a patient screening. In general, patients who meet the following criteria will be considered good candidates for injectable fillers:
- You are in good overall physical health
- You do not smoke or use tobacco products
- You have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance
- You are committed to maintaining good skin health to maintain your results
Types of Injectable Fillers
In the last few decades, several companies have refined the formulas for injectable fillers that address specific issues and areas of the face. Dr. Ayoub matches each Omaha patient to the filler or fillers that most effectively treat their concerns. While there are numerous companies that produce fillers, Dr. Ayoub has hand-selected the products he uses in his office based on their effectiveness and safety.
Botox is great for improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, fine lines above the lip, crows feet around eyes, heavy forehead furrows, and skin bands on the neck.*
An injectable filler that temporarily restores volume to correct facial wrinkles, deep folds, facial lines, enhance the lips and reshape facial contours. Juvèderm is hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar found in the skin. It retains water to add fullness and reduce wrinkles and lines. Juvèderm is suited for the “parentheses” lines around the mouth (in the nasolabial fold or the marionette lines,) around the lips, or along the jaw line to minimize the “jowling” effect. It lasts up to one-year.*
Voluma contains a modified hyaluronic acid that is used to add volume to gently lift and contour the cheek area. It gives the appearance of the youthful “apple cheek” in a subtle, natural way. It lasts up to two years with optimal treatment.*
What Will Happen During My Treatment?
These injectable fillers are performed at Dr. Ayoub’s Omaha office in a procedure that normally lasts no more than an hour.* After administering local anesthesia Dr. Ayoub will:
- Locate the areas to target during your treatment.
- Gradually inject the filler using a superfine needle.
- Observe results and communicate with you until your have the results that you want.
The results of your treatment will be noticeable immediately.* Although you may have some swelling and minor discomfort, you can return to work the same or the next day.
Recovering from Your Treatment
Most Omaha patients experience little to no symptoms following their procedures.* However, the following symptoms are normal for the first few days after your treatment:
- Temporary numbness
Dr. Ayoub recommends ice packs for the first 24 hours following injections to minimize these symptoms*. It is very rare for Omaha patients to experience any adverse effects from treatment, but you should call Dr. Ayoub immediately if you have swelling and pain that lasts for more than one day.

If you are not ready for a facelift, these simple office procedures can give you great results that are seen immediately.*
