About Injectable Fillers
Wrinkle fillers (or simply fillers) are often used to replace lost facial volume. The face can lack volume for a number of reasons, but significant weight loss and age are major contributors. The process works by injecting the liquefied dermal filler beneath the skin to fill in areas lacking volume or shape. Fillers are an excellent nonsurgical option for Las Vegas, NV men and women wanting to smooth sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines in order to create a more youthful appearance. They can also be added to other cosmetic services to provide the benefits of a facelift without the need for surgery, the risk of scars, and the required recovery that follows. We offer many different types of fillers that could help meet the requests and desires of each individual, among the most popular — Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Belotero®, Bellafil®, Sculptra®, and Radiesse®. To find out which injectable fillers are recommended for you, we invite you to visit Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness where Dr. Reuben Thaker can help you make this decision.

"I went in for a hydro facial which was the first for me. I scheduled my appointment with Rita. The facility was very inviting and the room was very tranquil. When I laid down on the bed, I noticed it was nice and warm and extremely comfortable. Rita was very accommodating and explained everything that was going on during the facial. This facial was so relaxing and made me feel and look like I was glowing. Can't wait to try this again very soon. Rita even followed up with me the next day to see how my skin was feeling! Great service and even greater customer service!!!"- V.L. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2019
"Amazing facility! The equipment is all up to date and very clean. I had laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and hydration facial (done by Rita) all with noticeable changes before I walked out of the door. Can't recommend this place enough."- A.D. / Google / Jun 07, 2019
"I've been here a handful of times now, and always come out feeling better than when I came in. Dr. Thaker is kind and straightforward, and will work with you to make sure you get the treatment that works for you & your body. If something is not right for you, he won't do it, and I appreciate that honesty; especially in an industry where you may be able to find a doctor who will give you what you want, as long as you're willing to shell out - even if your body won't respond well to it or if could be hazardous to your health. I've come in and had microdermabrasion and hydrofacials done by Rita C., who is a wonderful medical esthetician with a great bedside manner. She always puts me at ease, and the treatments are relaxing and relatively painless - everyone's pain levels are different! But Rita has a gentle touch & I can practically nap while I'm getting it done. The hydrofacials have done wonders for my complexion, and have minimized the areas where I have hyperpigmentation and adult acne. The spa itself is sparkling clean, with all the latest equipment. Their prices are reasonable and they're quick to respond if you have any questions leading up to your appointment. Definitely give them a try if you're looking to treat yourself."- T.N. / Google / Apr 16, 2019
The ideal candidates for injectable fillers would be anyone looking to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without undergoing a surgical facelift. Usually, individuals who have recently lost significant amounts of weight have areas on their face that lack volume and shape. This makes them good candidates for injectable fillers. They are also a great option for men and women who do not want to risk the scarring that can result from a surgical facelift.
Before your treatment, Dr. Thaker will consult with you to learn more about your aesthetic goals and determine what product may best deliver them. For the actual procedure, Dr. Thaker will use numbing cream as a local anesthetic to ease the discomfort of the injection. Dr. Thaker will decide how much is necessary and will slowly and meticulously inject it through a very fine needle. Half or an entire syringe could be used, depending on the desired result.
What to Expect
Fillers can be injected in our Las Vegas, NV office in a brief timeframe. Because of the anesthetic, the process is typically only mildly uncomfortable and requires little to no downtime afterward. You can expect bruising and swelling immediately after, but these symptoms should fade away quickly. Results can last from a few months to a year, depending on the product and the placement of the injection. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do injectable fillers cost?
Your cost for a dermal filler treatment will vary, depending on the type of filler and how much is needed to match your goals. During your initial consultation, we will create a personalized treatment plan that best fits your needs and goals. Then, we will also provide you with an estimated cost for your treatment and discuss any current specials we have.
How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
The type of dermal filler selected for your treatment will be based on the area being treated and your desired outcome. Depending on whether you want to address fine lines or are wanting to create fuller lips, we will listen to your concerns before recommending the filler or fillers that will deliver better results. Now that there are so many different brands of fillers available, it can be difficult to decide which one is better for your needs without the help of a professional so Dr. Thaker will help you to make this decision.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX and Xeomin, treat lines and wrinkles (particularly in the forehead and near the eyes) by relaxing the movement of facial muscles. Injectable fillers restore volume to your face to fill in wrinkles, fine lines, and depressions. Injectable fillers can also be used to create fuller lips and cheeks, as well as to reduce the appearance of aging on the hands.
How long will the results last?
The longevity of your results will depend on which filler is used and where it is placed. For some patients, results may last for a year while others may need a repeat treatment after three months. Touch-up treatments can be scheduled at our practice in order to maintain your results.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Injectable fillers can address signs of aging in your face by either adding volume or smoothing static lines. Fillers can be injected into mild to moderate parentheses, marionette, and corner lines around your mouth and nose. Also, they can temporarily add volume to your cheeks and lips.
