What is filler and how is it used?

Filler specialist Dr. Lee Klausner utilizes hyaluronic acid based injectable fillers, which last approximately six months. Because they are not animal based, there is no allergy testing required prior to treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a protein found in the joints and tissues of all living things. Filler specialist Dr. Lee Klausner uses Restylane® filler because it is soft, holds its shape, and does not form lumps. Because filler restores volume and fullness to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Dr. Klausner uses these long lasting fillers to perform non-surgical procedures including:

  • Non-surgical blepharoplasty
  • Non-surgical jowl lift
  • Non-surgical facelift
  • Non-surgical 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 prior to 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 six to eight months your body absorbs the filler and the injections can be repeated, meaning that the treated area can be adjusted to compliment the changes that occur in your face over time.

Video Transcript

Restylane is hyaluronic acid which is found in our skin and in our joints um that dissipates as we get older. Restylane is synthesized in a lab and it’s used as an injectable material in order to provide volume to the skin where that has diminished or to um provide volume underneath the skin. We used to think that our skin sags and therefore we need to intervene and what we’ve come to realize is that before the skin sags we lose facial volume and so with the loss of facial volume there’s loss of support of the skin and then the skin sags. So, the approach now to restore facial volume with the use of substances like Restylane um is very helpful in delaying progression of aging because we are restoring the support to the skin so we are seeing less sagging long term.
