Hyaluronic acid fillers are derived from a naturally occurring component of the skin that is responsible for its volume, plumpness and smoothness. Hyaluronic acid levels decline with age, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, creases and hollows. Hyaluronic acid fillers attract water within the skin to instantly restore volume and smooth the skin’s surface. Main Line facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom has extensive experience with every family of hyaluronic acid products and can use one or more to improve the appearance of a wide array of cosmetic concerns. It is important to understand that Dr. Bloom’s knowledge and understanding of these products helps him choose the correct product or combination of products to address each patient’s specific cosmetic concerns. It is this individualized approach that distinguishes Dr. Bloom’s approach. Not every product is perfect for every facial area or every patient. Dr. Bloom may often suggest and offer more than one hyaluronic acid product at the same time to achieve the most natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing results.
Dr. Jason Bloom recognizes that some hyaluronic acid filler products are “strong” and particularly well suited for lifting or volumizing midfacial tissue, giving precision, definition, volume and support. However, other hyaluronic acid fillers are “thin” and integrate well into the fine lines and wrinkles around the face. It is this personalized approach and intimate knowledge of the differences between these products that enables Dr. Bloom to deliver comprehensive facial rejuvenation and achieve each patient’s individualized goals.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are typically used are to correct nasolabial folds (the “parentheses” on the sides of the mouth) or fill under-eye hollows or “tear trough” deformities. Some of the more robust hyaluronic acid fillers are popularly used for restoring facial volume to the midface and temples, as well as adding definition to the chin and jawline. On the other hand, some hyaluronic acid fillers were developed for enhancing lip volume and filling fine lines around the lips (i.e. smoker’s lines). Finally, hyaluronic acid filler products can be utilized to lift the brows, improve the appearance of acne scars, plump droopy earlobes and even smooth nasal bumps for an “injectable nose job.” Most of these hyaluronic acid fillers are formulated with lidocaine to minimize discomfort before and after treatment.
Main Line facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom is widely recognized as an expert injector, and is an instructor, educator, trainer and speaker for almost all of the major brands of FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers. He travels around the country and world to train other doctors and practitioners, sharing his unique injection techniques for these hyaluronic acid filler products.
