Liquid Injectable Treatments using Hyaluronic Acid Filler
Dr. Kam offers liquid injectable treatments in Voorhees, NJ. Many consider dermal filler injections an ideal option to refine or enhance their features without the cost of downtime associated with surgery. These cosmetic injectables offer long-lasting, shape-changing, sculpting results.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance and the most common filler to enhance the lips, nose, and under-eye area. Juvéderm and Restylane are FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers, made from the building block of our body’s natural collagen. These fillers add structure, volume, and shape to improve features.
Injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers cause minimal bruising and swelling, and any lumps and bumps can be dissolved easily. Because hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, patients are less likely to have an allergic reaction. Some products contain lidocaine, a topical anesthetic, to numb the area during the injections. Although rare, lidocaine can cause an allergic reaction.
Significant cosmetic improvements are possible without surgery using innovative techniques and dermal filler procedures. Adults who want to improve their appearance without surgery can reshape their lips, correct under-eye hollows, alter the shape of the nose and restore facial volume with dermal fillers at Kam Facial Plastic Surgery.
What is Liquid Rhinoplasty?
Dr. Kam implements powerful injection techniques to change the shape of the nose using only hyaluronic acid filler. For example, she may place the filler to create the illusion of a smaller nose, camouflage a bony “hump”, correct a slightly crooked nose, augment the bridge, lift or add projection to the tip, improve the appearance after a failed surgical procedure, or camouflage a scar after an injury.
What about Lip Augmentation?
Dr. Kam offers several popular options for patients who want to increase their lips’ volume, hydration, size or shape. Hyaluronic acid filler offers natural-looking, beautiful results without surgery. The results typically last 6 to 8 months and provide fuller, plumper, or more shapely lips designed to each patient’s unique goals. Many fillers are available for lip augmentation, each with specific benefits. Ask Dr. Kam which might be best for your cosmetic goals.
What is Under-Eye Correction?
The under-eye area may appear hollow due to genetics, aging, health factors, and habits such as smoking. Injectable filler adds volume to the site to create a more vibrant appearance. Hyaluronic acid fillers are malleable gels that are easily molded and customized to fill the tear troughs under each patient’s eyes. The procedure takes minutes and the results typically last 6–9 months.

Dr. Kam is an experienced facial plastic surgeon specializing in facial rejuvenation, including surgical procedures like facelifts, neck lifts, rhinoplasty, and eyebrow lifts. She recognizes that some patients aren’t ready for surgery and achieves clear results for her patients using liquid injectables instead.
During the consultation, Dr. Kam performs an examination and learns her patient’s goals.

Dr. Kam’s precision and skill are phenomenal, and her patients receive excellent results without surgery.
Preparing for Liquid Rhinoplasty, Lip Augmentation, and Under-Eye Correction
During the consultation, in addition to a medical examination, Dr. Kam discusses possible allergies, skin irritations, and current medications. She recommends avoiding for several days before the treatment ibuprofen, vitamin E, aspirin, blood thinners, and other herbal supplements and drugs that thin the blood.
Arrive at the appointment with a clean face. Avoid applying perfumes, makeup and lotions on the day of the procedure. Patients should plan to avoid strenuous exercise in the hours after the first cosmetic treatment.
Liquid Nose, Lips, and Under-Eye Treatment in Voorhees, NJ
Dr. Kam performs liquid nose, lip, and under-eye treatments in Sewell and Voorhees, NJ, at Kam Facial Plastic Surgery. She discusses the dermal filler products and liquid treatment plan during the consultation.
The experienced injector may address several areas during one session, depending on the patient’s concerns. She typically uses hyaluronic acid fillers during liquid rhinoplasty, lip augmentation, and under-eye correction but may combine the treatment with other injectable options.
Dr. Kam strategically injects tiny increments of hyaluronic acid gel and carefully shapes the area. Once injected, the filler supports and shapes tissue in the nose, lips, or under the eyes to add volume and create natural-looking, subtle changes.
The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes and is pain-free. Dr. Kam may pace the treatment over several appointments to achieve the desired results. Most people can return to work or resume their regular schedule on the same day as the treatment, but Dr. Kam will give personal instructions to the patient based on their treatment.
Combining Injectables at Kam Facial Plastic Surgery
Dr. Kam customizes the liquid transformation to match the patient’s unique needs. Radiesse, composed from a form of calcium, may be injected to smooth deep folds and dynamic wrinkles. Dr. Kam may suggest Botox or Dysport injections, which can smooth the deep lines between the eyebrows, improve the crow’s feet and smile lines, and erase forehead creases to create a youthful appearance.
Liquid Nose, Lips, and Under-Eye Recovery
The recovery after liquid rhinoplasty, lip augmentation, or under-eye correction is typically mild. Bruising and swelling in the injection site are usually well tolerated, but patients are encouraged to postpone some normal activities requiring physical exertion for 24 hours.
After the cosmetic procedure, Dr. Kam recommends using an ice pack to reduce swelling and bruising around the injection area. An ice pack should be applied to the face for 10–15 minutes at a time every few hours for several days after treatment. This helps soothe facial skin and reduce any inflammation associated with the procedure.
Most patients can wear makeup after 24 hours. Dr. Kam provides patients with personalized post-treatment instructions to encourage a smooth recovery and ideal results. Contact Dr. Kam at Kam Facial Plastic surgery with liquid treatment questions or concerns.
