Addressing the Face as a Whole
Dr. Asaria believes firmly in taking a global approach to enhancement of the face. Just what does this mean? Most often individuals tend to lock their focus on one feature that bothers them or that they would like to change. Rather than fixate on just that one thing, Dr. Asaria always starts out by helping the patient to step back and view their face as a whole. “It is important to look at the overall balance of the face. When you get to the bottom of it, our goal is never to fill a single line or shadow or fix one crease. The purpose is to look and feel better about ourselves.” With this philosophy in mind, Dr. Asaria works with each patient to help them achieve a balanced and natural overall appearance. As he stresses, “It starts with an in-depth understanding of the right application for each filler product.” Beyond that, he stresses that the clinician applying the filler needs to have a good understanding of how to bring about a balanced and harmonious appearance to the face. "That’s how truly excellent results are obtained."
Dr. Asaria and Dr. Alexander personally administer all fillers and injectables in our practice. With their extensive expertise in the area of facial fillers, they do more than simply alleviate wrinkles. Using products that truly fit your needs, they can accent the cheekbones, smooth out the jawline, accentuate the lips, soften hollows in the cheeks and refresh the eyes at will. Most importantly, anything they do is done in a manner that contributes to overall balance and beauty of the face.

A Private Facial Filler Consultation With Dr. Asaria or Dr. Alexander
An injectable treatment with Dr. Asaria or Dr. Alexander begin with a private consultation. Patients who come to Drs. Asaria and Alexander benefit from the expert input of an experienced specialist. As part of the consultation process, Dr. Asaria and Dr. Alexander take the time to educate each patient. “Through advertisements and pop culture, patients have been misinformed on the topic of facial fillers.” says Dr. Asaria. “Some of the products out there have almost become household names and so we tend to think of them as something we can just order off a menu,” but, as Dr. Asaria points out, “Just as an artist selects his tools, it is the job of an experienced cosmetic expert to select the product or products that are going to accomplish the results the patient desires and in a manner that looks natural and balanced.”
With this approach in mind, Dr. Asaria and Dr. Alexander begin the consultation process by putting aside product names and shifting the focus to you and your needs. Once the doctors fully understand the aspects and features you most want to address, they can then prescribe the proper treatment to accomplish subtle, refined results. In some cases Dr. Asaria or Dr. Alexander may even inform a patient that they simply do not need any injection or fillers, in order to help them avoid bringing about an unnatural or imbalanced appearance.
Using small quantities of one or more filler, Dr. Asaria and Dr. Alexander work with each patient to bring out about a restored appearance that is natural to their face. Dr. Asaria and Dr. Alexander will select different fillers to address specific areas of the face including:
- Beneath the eyes
