Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are natural or synthetic gels of Hyaluronic Acid, a sugar chain molecule which is naturally present in young skin but decreases as we age.

How do Dermal Fillers work?

As we age the collagen and elastin fibres which provide strength and support to the face tissues break down and, as a result, our lines and wrinkles become more visible and deeper.
Dermal Fillers are injected underneath the wrinkle or fold to lift the skin and restore its natural volume. Hyaluronic acid works by attracting and binding water in the skin, providing volume and hydration with the end result of ‘cushioning’ and supporting collagen and elastin fibres to restore your face’s youthful appearance.

What areas can be treated with Dermal Fillers?

The most common treated areas are the nasolabial folds, the marionette lines and the lips. We also use Dermal Fillers in the Max Fax™ Sculpting technique by Dr. Maen (check the flyer for more info!).

Are Dermal Fillers safe?

Hyaluronic Acid has been used for over 20 years and it is FDA approved. The Hyaluronic Acid formulation used in Dermal Fillers is almost identical to the one naturally found in young skin and it is not derived from animal sources, hence there is no risk of disease transmission or allergic reactions.

Do Dermal Filler injections hurt?

Just a little, especially when treating sensitive areas, such as lips. However the application of a topical anaesthetic cream and the use of a cannula (micro-needle) reduce discomfort. After all, Beauty has a price!

How long will the procedure take?

The procedure is quick and simple: the session lasts between 20 to 30 minutes.

How long will the results last?

Usually between 6 to 12 months. Repeated treatments can very often achieve better correction with longer lasting results.
As soon as you notice the effect to wear off you can re-book your next rejuvenation session.

What should I expect after the injections?

You will see the improvement immediately after the treatment, although you may feel that the product is hard, lumpy or asymmetrical. This is normal, and it is due to the initial swelling, which may last 1-2 days. The final result can be judged at the 2 week follow up appointment.

Can Dermal Fillers be used in combination with Botox® injections?

Yes. The combination of the two treatments gives stunning results and it is completely safe.

Max Fax™ Sculpting

This signature technique by Dr. Maen is based on the maxillo-facial knowledge of the patient’s own facial bones features. Since every person is unique, by carefully studying individual aesthetic proportions and relating them to the underlying facial structure (dermal thickness and bones’ position), the result obtained is a bespoke enhanced definition of cheeks, chin and jaw line. The material injected is Hyaluronic Acid, and depending on the patient’s own facial features, Dr. Maen will use different types of fillers. When treating volume loss, Volume Dermal Fillers are injected onto the bone or deeper in the soft tissue; while when treating lines and wrinkles, the injections are performed under the skin, in tiny amounts to obtain a ‘lift effect’. Dr. Maen is the ‘artist’ who will decide which one is most suitable for each case.


Max Fax™ Face Lift

Since the Max Fax™ method is extremely customized and tailored on patient’s needs, Dr. Maen’s Max Fax™ Face Lift technique aims to restore a plumber and more youthful appearance for patients over 40. The technique involves the use of medical threads that are inserted in specific areas to target the sagging of the skin and slow the ageing process. The Max Fax™ Face Lift is the best choice to treat droopy eyebrows, sleepy eyes, sagging jawline and double chin. The technique can be used in combination with the Face Sculpting for a complete profile enhancement.


Max Fax™ Surgery

The Max-Fax Face Sculpting technique is brought to a different level with this approach. The method involves the initial calculation of the patient’s own aesthetic proportions in combination with the evaluation of their facial bones’ structure and position. The case-study might involve the intervention of different specialties in the view to correct specific areas, such as excessive gingival display (gingivoplasty), upper and lower jaw (orthognatic surgery), chin bone (ginoplasty), maxillary bone (jaw implants) or cheeks bones (cheeks implants), or, in some cases, even multiple areas. After the initial correction process has been completed, the Max-Fax Surgery will take place to enhance those corrections through the application of facial implants. Patients enjoy the end result, as it is permanent and completely tailored to their own facial features, meaning that they still find themselves in the mirror yet with harmony and enhanced appearance.


Fox Eyes by Max Fax™

One of the latest trends in aesthetic procedures, created by Dr. Maen and one of the most requested internationally. The target area are the eyes, upper and lower eye-lids, eyebrows. The procedure can be performed with three different techniques, depending on each case. For younger patients, usually the method comprise the use of Botox in specific amounts around the eyes and eyebrows to achieve the “Foxy Eye look”. In patients with mildly sagging eyelids and droopy eyebrows, the method is performed non-invasivally by the insertion of medical threads. For more aged skin, the method is easily performed by tiny surgical cut at the base of the hairline or the eyebrow and the skin is lifted, along with the underlying muscle, to achieve the sharp look. In more advanced cases, in conjunction with droopy eyes, the Fox Eyes technique involves the surgical procedures of upper and lower blepharoplasty, i.e. eye-lid surgery. The end result is the “Foxy Eyes look”, a sharp, sexy, youthful glare, sported by many actors and models around the world.


Lip Laser

This one-of-a-kind procedure was first implemented in the UAE by Dr. Maen Al Khateeb in 2010, thanks to his Master Degree in Laser from Achen University (Germany) and more than 25 years of experience in the field. The Lip Laser procedure aims to reduce the appearance of dark spots on the lips and gums, by specifically targeting melanine pigmentation, and restoring natural lips and gums colour. Although the melanin pigmentation of the gingiva and the lips is a completely benign condition and does not represent a medical problem, yet it represents aesthetical source of concerns for many patients. Laser Depigmentation is based on selective photothermolysis principle. Laser energy is transformed into ablation energy, resulting in cellular rupture and vaporization with minimal heating of the surrounding tissue. Different laser techniques have been used for treatment of oral melanin pigmentation, The technique requires high accuracy and precision and involves the depigmentation of the lips through the utilization of Laser by using specific parameters, different for each case.


Upper Lip Lift

Bothered by a long upper lip that covers your teeth when smiling? In some cases, lips enhancement is achieved not by lip fillers injections, but by a minimally invasive procedure: Upper Lip Lift may be the right choice for your case.


Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal Fat Removal, or BFR, is a surgical procedure that reduces the fullness in the lower half of the face. It is also known as buccal lipectomy, buccalmass removal, cheek reduction surgery, and fat pad removal.

Orthognatic Surgery

Facial asymmetry, retracted maxilla, prominent mandibula, lack of cheekbones, small chin, sloping jawline and malocclusion. Those are some of the problems solved by orthognatic surgery. Orthognatic surgery is a procedure aimed to correct the position and alignment of facial bones, whether due to congenital malformation or to traumatic accidents.



Otoplasty (also known as Pinnaplasty or Ear Pinning Surgery) is a type of a surgical procedure used for the correction of prominent ears. This procedure is also known as otoplasty or ear pinning. This ear plastic surgery is conducted on people of both the sexes and of all ages, who wish to correct their ears that tend to stick out.
Some people may not bother about the “bat” shape of their ears, but, for others, continuous comments from others can lead to distress, particularly during school years. Otoplasty is the best and simple procedure that can solve the problem safely and quickly.
Ear pinning surgery involves making an incision just behind the ear in the natural fold where the ear joins the head. This lets the surgeon reshape the ear by removing some part of the cartilage. The surgeon can then use permanent internal stitches to keep the ears in their new place

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the most advanced way to replace missing teeth: they look, feel and function just like natural teeth.


Bone Grafting

Over time, in an area where teeth have been lost, bone naturally shrinks or resorbs, both in height and width. As a result, new bone must be grafted to create a secure site for placing implants and to achieve aesthetic results.
