What Are Dermal Fillers?We believe in natural beauty – so that you look and feel like the best version of yourself. Dermal fillers soften facial lines, wrinkles and folds, and restore youthful facial contours. Subtle enhancements are achieved so that no one will know that you had anything done, just that you look great. Dr. David Friedman is passionate about natural beautification, which is skillfully performed with true artistic vision and attention to detail. Dr. Friedman, a U.S. and Israel Board-Certified Dermatologist, is one of the physician trainers for Allergan Israel and has pioneered a revolutionary approach to non-surgical facial enhancement. Dr. Friedman’s goal is not just to use dermal fillers to augment the face- rather his personal philosophy is to carefully sculpt and enhance your unique features, so that your face has a harmonious, seamless and youthful appearance, with lustrous looking skin. In order to achieve the best results possible, Dr. Friedman uses premium dermal filler (hyaluronic acid) materials for facial sculpting. Not all hyaluronic acids are created equal, and Dr. Friedman believes in using the best materials for natural and longer lasting results.
Dr. Friedman’s Treatment Approach to Dermal FillersSkin aging begins in your late 20’s, and the earlier that you begin the process of preserving your youthful appearance with dermal fillers, the better results you will achieve. You will consequently require smaller, more cost-effective treatments. Aging occurs in all four layers of your skin- bone, fat layer, dermis and epidermis. Dr. Friedman’s philosophy of a total face approach addresses all four layers. Full facial sculpting with Dr. Friedman creates a harmonious, symmetrical and natural look. Improving the balance between facial features is a key part of obtaining an attractive and appealing result. Dr. Friedman may use facial measurement calipers to ensure that dermal filler is placed with precision. Generally, dermal filler treatments with Dr. Friedman are accomplished in 1-2 visits, and touch-ups are recommended annually. In between dermal filler treatments, patients can schedule botox and laser treatments to optimally maintain their restored and youthful appearance. At your consultation, Dr. Friedman will personally tailor a treatment plan for you, so that you can restore and enhance your unique, youthful appearance.
Where Can I get Dermal Fillers?
As you age, you lose volume and bone in the forehead. Filler can enhance your youthful curvature, treat your wrinkles, lift up your eyebrow and most importantly, open your eyes.
A beautiful eyebrow has a certain height, shape, and fullness. Calipers may be used to ensure that the peak, width, and height of the eyebrow are harmonious. Deep-set, hollow eyes can also be enhanced with filler. Treatment is usually performed by Dr. Friedman using a combination of botox and filler.
Aging can cause your temple to hollow, and the outer edge of your eyebrow to droop.
Filler placed in the temple can achieve a younger, healthier appearance, which can lift up your eyebrow and cheek.
Dr. Friedman believes in creating subtle beauty in cheeks, so that the cheeks look defined, yet have a gentle and fine appearance. This is accomplished by placing high quality dermal filler in the correct areas of the cheek. Filler in the cheek can also improve the appearance of other areas such as under your eye, next to your lips and nose.
Between the nose and middle of the eye, very small amounts of filler can take away signs of aging and improve the appearance underneath the eyes.
Dark circles under the eyes have different causes. Lack of volume underneath the eye can cause a depression, which can be treated by augmenting the cheek and underneath the eye.
Veins which cause the skin underneath the eye to appear to be blue or black, can often be treated by laser. Another cause is pigmentation of the skin, which can be treated with a combination of energy-based devices and prescription creams.
Filler and botox, can lift the tip of your nose, correct bumps in your nose, and improve a long looking nose. Dr. Friedman can also treat a nasal valve collapse which can cause snoring and difficulty exercising.
Nasolabial folds are the folds on the sides of the nose. Dr. Friedman believes in placing small amounts of dermal filler to make the folds less prominent.
The lines above your lips can be addressed with filler. Dr. Friedman believes in not filling in every line, but rather in placing filler and intradermal botox to support the skin.
Lips are the hardest area to get to just right. Filler in the lips can create a beautiful shape in the upper lip, and add volume to the lower lip. Dr. Friedman believes in subtle beauty, not very large and plump lips – so that no one will know that you had anything done, just that you look great.
Filler can treat a jawline that is not well-defined or when the face blends into the neck. Filler can create a distinct, straight, feminine jawline. A jowl in the jawline can treated by lifting the skin above the jowl both with filler and intradermal botox, and placing filler below the jowl.
By minimizing the jowl, there be will be a straight line from the side of your cheek until the chin.
Filler can create a beautiful oval shape of the entire face, by addressing the forehead, temple, lateral cheek, and chin. With age, you lose bone and fat in the chin. Filler can add definition to your chin, lessen a jowl and enhance your total facial shape.
Sagging skin in your neck can often be improved by lifting the volume in the face with dermal filler, especially in the area of your chin. In certain cases, the Thermitight procedure can be performed in the clinic, to tighten the skin of the neck and jawline.
Wrinkles in your neck can be treated with a combination of dermal filler, intradermal botox and an energy-based device. Excess fat in the neck can be treated with sodium deoxycholate.
As your hands age, they become frail and skeleton-like. Filler can restore the youthful appearance of the hands. In addition, sun spots on your hands can be treated with laser.
