Different fillers have different properties of lifting capacity, smoothness and depth so it’s important to choose which combination will benefit each patient.

In a recent article published on June 19th to Mail Online, skeptics of a popular cosmetic procedure known as a liquid facelift, which is a combination of Botox™, dermal fillers, and lasers, weighed in regarding the treatments true effectiveness. According to Kimberly Butterwick, MD, a top dermatologist in San Diego, there are several ways a person can ensure they receive optimal results from their non-surgical facelift.

“One of the best ways to make sure you’re going to be happy with your results is to visit a practitioner who is specifically trained in laser treatments and injectables. Doing this lowers the risk of not liking your results. When patients do not visit a knowledgeable dermatologist, they can end up looking ‘overly done’ with too much volume and a frozen face,” said Dr. Butterwick.

Aside from making sure to always visit a dermatologist who is an expert injector and laser specialist, Dr. Butterwick believes that each patient should receive a customized treatment plan when undergoing a liquid facelift. At Goldman, Butterwick, Fitzpatrick, Groff & Fabi Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, Dr. Butterwick tailors the liquid facelift treatment to the unique needs of her patients.

“It’s very important to customize the treatment for every individual. No two people are ever the same, and in doing this, I’m able to inject just the right amount of Botox and filler to bring patients natural results,” said Kimberly Butterwick, MD. “Different fillers have different properties of lifting capacity, smoothness and depth so it’s important to choose which combination will benefit each patient."

In addition to Botox and dermal fillers, Dr. Butterwick believes that adding lasers and a skin tightening device to the treatment can improve results dramatically. Botox and fillers address movement wrinkles and volume loss, two very important components of aging. However, adding laser and energy treatments into the mix can provide the final surface rejuvenation and tightening effect..

“Botox and fillers like Juvéderm™ and Restylane™ are fantastic treatments alone and together. But if a patient is looking for total facial rejuvenation, I often recommend treatment with an IPL, laser skin resurfacing to brighten, tone, and smooth the skin, or Ulthera to tighten for ultrasound to a non-surgical facelift,” said Dr. Butterwick, world-renowned San Diego dermatologist and Diplomat of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

Kimberly J. Butterwick, MD, is a world-renowned skincare specialist and board certified dermatologist in San Diego. A graduate of the highly-regarded University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Dr. Butterwick has made a name for herself as an ‘expert injector” and is a current member of advisory boards for Allergan, Valeant and Merz, the makers of top dermal fillers Juvederm and Restylane as well as Botox Cosmetic. Aside from her unique and specialized knowledge of injectables, Dr. Butterwick is considered a leading authority on laser treatments and minimally invasive body contouring and liposculpture procedures.
