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’s “Needleless Injection” Technique
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 one of the pioneers of micro-cannula filler techniques.
Dermal fillers are an excellent way to temporarily improve a number of issues. They can address 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, Restylane and RHA product families. Each filler option is specifically designed to offer unique benefits. Some are better for restoring lost cheek volume, while others are better for filling deep or moderate facial wrinkles.
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
Ideal Candidates for Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are appropriate for patients who have moderate to severe signs of aging. Patients who do not want to undergo a surgical procedure like a facelift are ideal candidates for dermal fillers. Healthy people with realistic goals are excellent candidates. Patients who are committed to maintaining proper skincare after their session are the best candidates for a filler treatment.
During your dermal filler consultation, we will discuss your signs of aging, along with your goals and expectations. We will ask about the different skin-rejuvenation treatments you have tried and the results they provided. Additionally, we will evaluate your medical history.
We will examine your skin, especially the areas with prevalent signs of aging. We will then recommend the suitable dermal fillers for your situation and customize a treatment plan that can provide the best results.
Finally, we will tell you how to prepare for the filler injection session and then set a date for your session. It is important to ask questions if you have doubts at any point.
The 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 like the Liquid Facelift.
The Liquid Facelift is a combination of multiple injectables that is designed to deliver comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Deep wrinkles, smile lines, hollowed out eyes and loss of fat in the cheeks can all be corrected with the combination of fillers and neurotoxin, an injectable muscle relaxer used to treat contracted muscles.
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. No scalpels or incisions will be necessary.
Using a combination of injectables, the face is systematically rejuvenated by injecting neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport into the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Restylane is used to expertly fill the hollows beneath the eyes, and Voluma or Contour is used to plump and restore volume to 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, reducing the appearance of the jowls.
Dermal Filler Results
The results of dermal fillers are visible immediately after injection. Because this is a non-surgical procedure, almost no downtime or recovery time will be necessary after the treatment session. Patients will be free to go about their regular daily schedule.
Any swelling and bruising that may evolve usually subsides within a few days. Make sure to wear proper sun protection and avoid heavy sun exposure while the swelling and bruising.
Results can last for some cases even longer than a year; however, results are temporary and will vary depending on the types of fillers used. 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. These include the following:
- Pain or tenderness
- Lumps or bumps
Dermal Filler Cost
The cost of your dermal filler procedure will depend on the type of filler products used during the treatment. The overall price will also be affected by the number of injections used for the treatment.
