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. Klausner is WONDERFUL (and so is her staff!) My daughter wanted a nose-job by a woman..so we interviewed several female doctors in NYC and Dr. Klausner was by far the kindest, most patient, and most thorough person we saw. We chose to go with her and the entire process was super positive - from the pre-op visits, to the surgery, to the post- op -- Dr. Klausner is wonderfully caring and invested in her patients. I highly recommend her (and plan to use her when I need some work done for myself :)"- A.P. / Google / Nov 12, 2022
"Dr. Klausner is a fantastic surgeon and I'm so glad I found her! I first saw her in 2021 for a consult and needed to take some time to think about going through with the surgery proposed (septoplasty, turbinate reduction, fracture repairs) and explore other options. I ended up going back to Dr. Klausner in 2022 because I felt she was the best out there and I needed this surgery. She is extremely detailed in her notes and explained every little detail to me, which I appreciate. Post-op she took the time to check in and make sure I was okay and even called me at night when she knew I was feeling nauseous. I also had weekly office visits to ensure I was healing properly and we’re both very happy with the results. Overall she's a compassionate and skilled doctor and I would recommend her to anyone."- J.S. / Google / Nov 11, 2022
"Juliana Longoria, an aesthetician in Dr. Klausner’s practice, is fantastic! I’ve seen her several times for dermaplaning and most recently, the Clear and Brilliant laser treatment. She is thorough, thoughtful and conscientious, taking the time to understand what I’m looking for and what I can expect with each procedure. I’m so pleased with the results and trust her with all my future skincare needs."- A.W. / Google / Aug 13, 2022

"I am so thrilled that I chose Dr. Klausner as my plastic surgeon, she is absolutely phenomenal. During my visits for both surgical and non-surgical procedures, she gave me her undivided, focused attention. She attends to the smallest of details - - which is what you want in a plastic surgeon - - and I trust her completely. She and her team have been with me every step of the way during this journey and I cannot imagine seeing any other facial plastic surgeon. I love visiting Dr. Klausner's office and seeing Melissa and Jeslyne, and I am so happy I found the Klausner Institute!"- A. / Healthgrades / Mar 13, 2022
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.
What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
Plastic surgery is not always the answer for patients who want to improve mild to moderate signs of aging. Dermal fillers achieve many of the same results without incisions or downtime. Injectable fillers are also popular because they provide natural-looking results that are custom to each patient’s unique needs and goals.
Some benefits of dermal fillers include:
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
- Increased volume in the cheeks
- Enhanced lip definition
- Diminished under-eye hollows
Are Dermal Fillers Right For Me?
The best way to know if dermal fillers are an effective treatment for your goals is to schedule a consultation with Lee Ann M. Klausner, M.D. An expert in identifying the top needs for your skin and aligning treatment with your goals, Dr. Klausner can help you set reasonable expectations for what dermal fillers can accomplish in conjunction with additional treatments or on their own. Reach out today to the Klausner Institute, and get your burning questions answered about how you can achieve the look and feel you've dreamed of for your skin.
What Should I Expect After Getting Dermal Fillers?
Injectable dermal fillers are done as an in-office treatment session in a very quick procedure. Due to the use of anesthetic, the process is typically very tolerable and does not require downtime. You should expect minor swelling or bruising initially, but these symptoms should dissipate quickly. Results can last from three months to a year, depending on the type of filler used and the injection placement. Touch-ups may be needed periodically to optimize and maintain your results.
Dermal filler FAQs
Are dermal fillers safe?
Dermal fillers are made of biocompatible materials that are generally safe for most people. However, there is always a risk of infection or other complications. Dr. Klausner is a qualified and experienced professional who can minimize any risks associated with cosmetic injections. Our team will also provide aftercare instructions to help you heal quickly.
Is there anything I should avoid after dermal fillers?
You should avoid strenuous activity or exposure to excessive heat or sunlight for at least 24 hours after dermal filler treatment in New York. This will help minimize side effects like bruising and swelling. You should also avoid touching or pressing down on the injection site. We know it can be tempting, but it is important to let the area heal properly.
