Dermal Fillers

One of the most popular facial rejuvenation procedures available today, dermal fillers can help sculpt rounder cheeks, fuller lips, smooth facial contours, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and fill that hollowed under-eye look. Used to help restore lift and fullness to areas in the face that experience natural volume loss and sagging over time, dermal fillers have revolutionized cosmetic facial surgery.

Dr. Liebertz has developed a specific “needleless injection” using micro-cannulas to artfully inject the filler in a safer, more controlled manner with less bruising and less down time. He has had extensive training with many different filler products, and was an apprentice to Dr. Louis DeJoseph, one of the pioneers of micro-cannula filler techniques. Dermal fillers are an excellent way to temporarily improve hollowed temples, flattened cheeks, deepening laugh lines, and even “smoker’s lines” around the mouth.

Depending upon the desired result, various dermal fillers may be used in different areas of the face, including Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, Belotero, and Radiesse.

Available fillers include:

Excellent treatment for:

  • Hollowed temples
  • Deepened tear trough
  • Flat or shallow cheeks
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Fine lines around the lips
  • Natural lip enhancement
  • Depressed scars

  • Minimally invasive MICRO-CANNULA technique
  • Minimal down time
  • Can last up to 2-3 years

Liquid Facelift

Until recently, traditional surgical intervention was the only way to restore youth to the aging face. The development of a wide range of dermal injectables has now permitted for newer and less invasive techniques. Deep wrinkles, smile lines, hollowed out eyes and loss of fat in the cheeks can all be corrected with the combination of fillers and Botox. By using various injectables to plump, fill, and smooth deep lines and wrinkles, a more youthful appearance can be gained with immediate results and almost no downtime.

Using a combination of injectables, the face is systematically rejuvenated by injecting Botox into the forehead, frown lines, and crows feet. Restylane is used to expertly fill the hollows beneath the eyes, and Voluma is used to plump and lift the cheeks and midface. Other fillers complete the lift by softening the smile lines around the mouth and by adding greater contour and definition to the jaw line, effacing the jowls.

Dermal Filler Results

The results of dermal fillers are visible immediately after injection. Any swelling and bruising that may evolve usually subsides within a few days. Results can last for six to nine months, and in some cases even longer than a year; however, results are temporary and will vary. Supplemental touch-up treatments may be necessary to achieve and maintain optimal correction of wrinkles and folds.

Dermal Filler Risks

Although dermal fillers are considered safe, there is a small risk of side effects usually limited to the injection site, and include the following:

  • Redness
  • Pain or tenderness
  • Firmness
  • Swelling
  • Lumps or bumps
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Discoloration
  • Infection
