With age or weight loss, we lose volume in some areas of the face. Fillers are injectable products that allow us to “Plump back up” without surgery. Fillers can also be used to soften wrinkles and, of course, to create bigger, fuller lips.
How does it work: Most fillers are gel type products that can stay in our bodies for long periods of time and eventually do get absorbed, but at a very slow rate. Until the fillers are fully absorbed, they will create volume and keep the shape of the treated area. Correct placement and good massage after injecting it will be key!
All fillers are not the same! At Refine by Dr. Nazia, we offer hyaluronic acid fillers because these products are the safest to use.
Hyaluronic acid is our first choice because it is an essential substance that naturally exists in our body. It is one of the main components around our cells and it helps to keep them in place, like the scaffolding of a building.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the only ones that are 100% reversible, which means there is a reversal agent we can inject in case of any problems or if you change your mind. This is a safety net that only these fillers can offer. Remember, safety first!
Perfect timing: Schedule the treatment after work or during a day that is not that busy. Results will be immediate, and you can expect area swelling. You will need to ice the treated area several times that day. The day after your procedure there is a possibility of bruising, but at that time you will be able to use makeup.
Ideally, plan for your procedure 2 to 3 weeks prior to a special occasion, this will allow enough time for resolution of bruising and touch-ups if needed.
Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts use a biodegradable polyester suture. They’re best suited for rejuvenating your skin while some newer types of thread lifts are better at lifting sagging skin.
The presence of these sutures in your skin triggers cells in your body called fibroblasts to produce more collagen. Collagen is the protein that gives your skin its structure and elasticity. Loss of collagen is one of the main causes of aging skin.
Some uses of smooth PDO Threads:
- Smooths Crepey skin
- Pops up acne and/or other scars
- Outlining of Lips for a natural look
- Smooth neck
- Can be inserted into deep, fine, lip lines, forehead, and to fill “11’s”.
We offer all neurotoxins in our practice, Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Jeaveau. The use of neurotoxin is. One of the most cost effective and safe rejuvenation treatments available in the market currently.
How does it work: Botox is injected into specific muscles to keep them relaxed. The muscles in charge of creating unwanted wrinkle patterns are targeted and those lines will fade or even go away. Everybody is different and every muscle is different, and because of that the dose required for each patient is different and the amount of botulinum toxin required is customized to each patient.
Results: You will be able to see results around 7 days after treatment. Unfortunately, the effects are not immediate but is worth the wait! We always start with a standard dose known to work for a specific area, 2 weeks later we meet again, and we evaluate the results. If needed, we gradually inject more to achieve optimal wrinkle treatment without overdoing it.
The effects will last approximately 3 months.
Perfect timing: If you are doing botox for a special occasion, plan your treatment at least 3 weeks prior to your special day. This should allow us enough time for your initial treatment and tweaking. If there is any bruising, 3 weeks will allow enough time for it to resolve.
Safety: This procedure performed correctly has a low risk for complications and if happen, most complications are temporary. This is one of our favorite treatments because of the results you can achieve and the high safety profile, especially if performed by a professional doctor Nazia Faiz-Qadir.

LASER SKIN REJUVENATION
Refine by Dr. Nazia offers nonablative laser treatment for fine wrinkles, also referred to as laser skin resurfacing. This treatment is based on the principle of creating a controlled wound in the skin using heat and evoking a healing response. The healing process stimulates collagen remodeling with fibroblast production of new collagen, elastin, and other extracellular matrix components that thickens the dermis. In addition to wrinkle reduction, dermal remodeling also improves rough skin texture, pore size, and scars. We recommend about 6 to 8 sessions. 4 weeks apart.
LASER TREATMENT FOR PIGMENTED LESIONS
Refine by Dr. Nazia offers treatment for superficial varicose veins via laser.
