The key to success with skin fillers: making the right choices

Published on Jan 24th, 2013 by Michael Kaminer

At the annual dermatologic surgery meeting in Atlanta last fall, I presented new data on filler techniques to improve results. Fillers can now be used on virtually any part of the face, and using them preferentially in the temple region, as well as in front of the ears, can elevate lower facial skin with beautiful and natural results. Another area that offers pleasant results using fillers is on the eyebrows, eyelids and under the eyes, as shown in the videos below.

These new techniques present a significant advantage: they do not cause an overinflated or artificial look. They also avoid the need for any surgical tightening, which can create the well-known and unnatural pulled look.

Virtually any of the superb fillers on the market can be used with these new techniques, but the subtleties of choosing the right filler can often dramatically improve the results. Therefore, the key to success is for doctors to correctly identify the needs of each patient, and then custom choose the filler to address those needs.

Many patients are concerned about having an unnatural look following filler injection. We agree… and see this all the time from patients who come from other offices. The good news is that overfilling, or an unnatural look, are avoidable virtually 100% of the time when proper decisions and techniques are employed. At SkinCare Physicians, our doctors are experts at making the right choices for our patients.
