The introduction of hyaluronic acid (HA)-based dermal fillers has been, literally, a revolution in the world of facial rejuvenation. Thanks to this amazing technology, men and women seeking to correct the signs of advancing age around the eyes—fine lines and wrinkles, increasingly hollow and prominent bony structures, and a perpetually tired, worn-out appearance—can now enjoy dramatic rejuvenation without the need for invasive facial surgery. HA-based fillers such as Restylane work by adding natural-looking volume to the face, while helping the skin maintain a plump, healthy, youthful appearance. Yet even this minimally-invasive rejuvenation technique carries risk: when performed with sub-optimal techniques or by a practitioner without sufficient knowledge of the delicate anatomical structures of the eye, use of dermal fillers can lead to results that look unnatural or “worked on” and in the worst cases, poorly-placed injections can damage the delicate vascular structures around the eye.
Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir, a world-renowned, board certified ophthalmologist and fellowship trained oculofacial surgeon known around the world for his advanced and innovative treatment techniques, is pleased to offer his patients yet another highly innovative facial rejuvenation procedure known as the Periocular Hyaluronic Acid Filler Deep Fill Technique. This precise, deep fill technique enables Dr. Steinsapir to deliver consistently beautiful facial rejuvenation while minimizing the risk of damage to vascular structures around the eye. This specialized injection technique involves careful placement of the HA-based filler (usually Restylane) deep within the tissues below the bony rim of the eye at the top of the cheek, starting at the teardrop area and carefully working outwards following the shape of the bone. The placement filler below the orbital rim is accompanied by equal treatment of the brow area to ensure balance and symmetry across the upper face. Once small amounts of the filler have been injected across the bony rim, Dr. Steinsapir carefully shapes the added volume with his fingers in order to avoid a lumpy, over-filled appearance and to ensure smooth, harmonious, naturally-beautiful results.
Superior results require superior technique!
