Injectable Fillers Omaha
Over time, our skin begins to lose collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which is what causes you to develop fine 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®, fillers work by restoring volume rather than relaxing into facial muscles.
The Benefits of Injectable Fillers
Injectable fillers are an excellent option if you are looking to revitalize your appearance without getting a facelift. While a facelift may eventually be needed 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, you can:
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
- 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.*
Am I 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 smile 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 aesthetic goals and desired results, and perform a patient screening. In general, the following criteria makes you a good candidate 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 prolong your results

Dr. Ayoub will match you to the filler or fillers that will most effectively treat your concerns. While there are numerous companies that produce fillers, Dr. Ayoub has hand-selected the products he uses in his Omaha office based on their effectiveness and safety.
