Combination Therapy

by Dr. Brunner |November 2, 2019 | Practice News

You are a unique and precious work of art. So why would you trust your face to anyone who’s less than an artist?


Eugenie Brunner, MD, FACS, is not only a highly trained and experienced cosmetic facial plastic surgeon and skin rejuvenation expert practicing out of Princeton, NJ, she also studied and practiced drawing and painting, and she still has an artist’s sensibilities and skills. So when she looks at your face, she sees the uniqueness of your bone structure, skin quality, and muscle tone, and plans with you how to bring your features into more perfect harmony and symmetry, while improving the health of your skin.


And, just like each work of art requires a specific color palette or special tools to bring it to fruition, Dr. Brunner chooses the right combination of therapies for your goals based on your unique facial qualities and needs. That’s why combination therapy is one of the hallmarks of her practice. By using a variety of techniques — as an artist uses different types of pen and brush strokes — she boosts your confidence and enhances your natural beauty. With each procedure, she brings you, “a surgeon’s hands, an artist’s eyes, and a woman’s touch.”

The right treatments in the right order

Dr. Brunner’s more than two decades of experience as a leading Princeton, NJ cosmetic facial plastic surgeon and skin rejuvenation expert has also taught her how to time procedures so that they work synergistically, rather than canceling one another or increasing the risk of complications. She plans each selected treatment so that you get the maximal benefit from every single one of the selected therapies. She also administers all injectable treatments herself.

For instance, in one of her more popular combinations, she mixes injectable dermal fillers with a laser skin rejuvenation to make your skin tighter, firmer, better contoured, and more glowing and youthful. She performs this type of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation in the following order:

  1. Restylane® hyaluronic acid filler to immediately smooth and lift tear troughs, filling in hollows to make your eyes look bright and youthful again.


  1. Radiesse® collagen-stimulating filler to contour your cheeks and restore lost volume. Radiesse’s microparticles trigger neocollagenesis deep within your skin, so your skin gradually rebuilds itself to be stronger, thicker, and firmer within the next several months.


  1. Clear + Brilliant® laser treatment to erase hyperpigmentation, smooth fine lines, and wrinkles, and tighten your pores. Just one 15-minute treatment makes your face glow with energy and youth again.


  1. Botox® to relax dynamic muscles on your forehead and eyes to resolve frown lines, forehead furrows, and crow’s feet. The neuromodulator is administered after laser treatment to be sure that its active ingredient stays in the muscle that it’s meant to treat. 


By selecting the right products and administering them in the correct order, Dr. Brunner ensures you get optimal results with the lowest possible chance of complications. You can choose to have all of your therapies on a single day or spread them out over time. To learn more about injectables and fillers, visit


Mix and match — today and tomorrow

The beauty of combination therapy is that you’re not locked into a single treatment. Instead, your routine varies over time and with your changing needs. 

Everyone knows that one person who hasn’t changed their hairstyle since 1973; with combination therapy, you never have to be that person. You and Dr. Brunner approach each new treatment session based on your current needs, rather than past results.

You can even have combination therapy that augments your facial plastic surgery. For instance, combining Fraxel® or PicoSure® laser treatments with a face-lift accelerates your healing, and makes your skin naturally thicker, lifted, and toned.

If you’re prone to breakouts, Dr. Brunner may add an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment to your regular rejuvenation. If you have deep lines and creases, she may recommend smoothing them with Restylane® Refyne or Defyne, or a Juvéderm® filler.

Combination therapy can delay surgery

You’re at the point in your aging process where high-quality skincare products containing retinol and peptides no longer rejuvenate your skin, but you’re not ready for surgery. Dr. Brunner from Princeton, NJ may recommend a nonsurgical facelift or liquid facelift, both of which rely on the efficacy of synergistic combinations of treatments. These combination injectable therapies are well tested as indicated by this study.


For instance, you may opt for a laser rejuvenation, plus a thread lift, fillers, and Botox to lift and firm your skin without an incision. Combining SmartLipo® to your chin while creating a nonsurgical chin augmentation with dermal fillers can give you the look of an implant. If you decide you love the look, you may then go on to a more permanent surgical implant.


Find out how to be the best version of yourself

Combination therapy — like all of Dr. Brunner’s treatments  — begins with a face-to-face consultation. Dr. Brunner takes time to listen to your frustrations and your dreams for your improvements. She also wants to learn about any time or budgetary concerns you have. Together, you come up with a plan that meets your needs so you can face the world happily and confidently.
