Dr. Isaacs is an expert in facial fillers and injection techniques. He lectures and teaches in regard to injection techniques and the various and novel uses of fillers.
Fillers have revolutionized therapeutic options for both aesthetics and non-aesthetic conditions. They have led to paradigm shifts and have become a game changer in certain conditions. Consult with an expert when considering this procedure. Fillers can be performed in an off-label use manner, and can be discussed more during your consultation.
Not just for your hair anymore.
Facial aging is more than just a sagging or gravitational effect. It can cause two changes. One is indeed a gravitational change, whereby the structures appear to droop, sag, or become “ptotic.” The second is a 3-dimensional change of deflation. To better understand this concept, think of your face as a balloon. When a balloon is fully inflated it is not only elevated and higher on a vertical axis, but also expanded or lengthened on its z-axis. There are no lines, wrinkles, crevices, or hollows. Now imagine some of the air being let out of the balloon. When a balloon deflates, which in this example would be analogous to the aging face, there is not only descent, or sagging, or “ptosis,” but also a deflation or hollowing that occurs. You can start to see lines, wrinkles, crevices, hollows, and even a gravitational change take effect.
Understanding these concepts in facial aging can shed light on treatment paradigms. A thorough understanding of the facial anatomy and how the structures and relationships change with age is used to help guide treatment.
There are various types of facial fillers. These are injected into the face and can achieve various goals. They can last for various amounts of time.
Facial fillers can add volume, plump up the skin, fill hollows, contribute to a youthful appearance, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, provide symmetry, provide definition, accentuate and enhance areas, and highlight your natural beauty by providing more contrast.
Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Isaacs to learn about the variety of fillers. The type of filler recommended can depend on the location the filler is injected into and the patient’s desired results.
