What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal filler specialist Lee Ann M. Klausner, M.D. utilizes hyaluronic acid-based injectable fillers, which last approximately six months. Because they are not animal-based, there is no allergy testing required before treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a protein found in the joints and tissues of all living things. At the Klausner Institute, we use Restylane® filler because it is soft, holds its shape, and does not form lumps.

"Dr. KlausnerMD is amazing, I’m a middle age woman and I had a few procedures done with her. I wanted to look as natural as possible. Dr. Klausner took her time, and listened....given my skin complexion ( I’m prone to keloids) we worked together regarding what would be my best options. Each procedure produced gratifying results, and I still remained looking like myself. Dr. Klausner makes you feel comfortable and assured...her service is exceptional."- L.M. / Google / Mar 15, 2021

"Dr. Klausner was one of many surgeons I met with for a revision (third) rhinoplasty. I met ten surgeons and traveled to Burlington, Boston, Albany, and New York City for consultations. At each appointment, it was impossible not to compare everyone to Dr. Klausner. Her ability to gather information, formulate a plan with options that met my needs, and offer feedback on how she could improve my quality of life allowed me to move forward with the procedure. While tertiary surgeries carry higher risks for complications, Dr. Klausner’s expertise and skills will enable you to have a positive outcome. I had several face-to-face appointments with her, phone calls reviewing other providers’ feedback, and a detailed review of prior surgical reports, which led to a thorough plan of care. Dr. Klausner is caring, smart, articulate, and, most of all, genuine. I was concerned that I might not be completely satisfied with improvements versus perfection. Still, with her help, I chose a plan that allowed for satisfaction both functionally and cosmetically. Once I had settled on a surgeon, the difficult challenge of cost and insurance coverage for an out of network provider became another obstacle. Dr. Klausner worked with my insurance company for countless hours to explain and provide evidence to cover the surgery. Choosing an out of area surgeon is unsettling; however, it was worth every bit of time. The aftercare I continue to receive from Dr. Klausner contributes to the success of the procedure. For anybody going through this process, it is the healing process that is the most difficult. Dr. Klausner is there for you every step of the way and not only with the healing process but with treating your skin to look and feel your very best. I am forever grateful to be a patient of Dr. Klausner and look forward to working with her for many years. She is truly a gifted and talented surgeon trained in treating even the most complex cases. My family and friends who have supported me along this journey have also noted how lucky I am to have found her. I highly recommend Dr. Klausner in all aspects of care."- T.A. / Google / Dec 15, 2020
"Dr. Klausner is an amazing doctor/surgeon. She takes time with her patients, listens, makes sure she explains everything in detail, follows up quickly, and is overall amazing at what she does. Her diagnosis was beyond accurate and I didn't even notice I had breathing issues until she brought it up to me. The surgery went well, I had minimal bruising, and my follow-up appointments have been great. I'd recommend her to anybody!"- M.H. / Google / Dec 15, 2020
How do dermal fillers work?
Because filler restores volume and fullness to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Dr. Klausner uses these long-lasting fillers to perform nonsurgical procedures, including:
- Nonsurgical eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)
- Nonsurgical jowl lift
- Nonsurgical facelift
- Nonsurgical or liquid nose job
Restylane injections cause no significant pain, swelling, or recovery time. Treatments typically take about 30 minutes. A topical numbing cream is applied before treatment to ensure patients are comfortable during the injection. Small amounts of Restylane are injected into precise locations, and in most cases, you will be asked to give feedback so that you have control over your final look. The result is a soft, pliable, filled area that gives patients a rejuvenated, youthful look. After 6 – 8 months, your body absorbs the filler and the injections can be repeated, meaning that the treated area can be adjusted to complement the changes that occur in your face over time.
