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. Reach out to our New York, NY location today to learn more about this impressive and effective treatment.

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

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.
