Dr. Brunner understands that pain and discomfort may deter patients from seeking desired cosmetic treatments. Fortunately, nerve blocking, a procedure that prevents pain signals from reaching the brain, allows patients to experience the transformative benefits of cosmetic procedures without discomfort. With over 25 years of experience in facial plastics and expertise in nerve blocking, Dr. Brunner can perform procedures at a leisurely pace for perfect, natural-looking results. Dr. Brunner’s nerve-blocking technique, along with topical numbing creams and Pro-Nox™, is a game-changer in aesthetics.

Dermal Fillers At Our Facial Plastic Surgery Practice

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to smooth away some wrinkles and restore youthful volume to areas like the midface and along the jawline. These formulations offer quick improvement without downtime, and results that can last for many months, depending on the filler used. Dr. Brunner features a wide range of filler options that allow her to customize all her treatments to the precise needs and goals of each patient for the best possible results. She can also enhance the efficacy of these treatments with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), natural blood components that stimulate collagen and accelerate healing. By adding PRP or PRF to your Radiesse or other filler, Dr. Brunner can boost the collagen production, improve your skin quality, soften fine wrinkles, and minimize sun damage.

Dr. Brunner proudly offers EZ PRF gel, a one-of-a-kind filler that uses growth factors in your own blood to improve your skin’s tone and texture, minimize the appearance of dark circles, plump up hollow under-eyes, and enhance your cheek hollows along with other areas of your face.

Our two most popular types of fillers are biostimulators and volume-enhancing injectables:

Biostimulators vs. Volume-Enhancing Fillers


Volume-Enhancing Fillers

Biostimulators boost collagen production over time to enhance the skin’s elasticity and preserve its youthful structure.

These facial contouring fillers, usually made with hyaluronic acid, increase volume, shape and define facial contours, and enhance the skin’s dermal structure.
















Neuromodulators / Wrinkle Relaxers in Princeton

Neuromodulators are also an injectable treatment, but they work differently than dermal fillers. These products target facial muscles responsible for creating lines and wrinkles when you make certain expressions. Treatment areas include the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. As the treated muscle relaxes, lines smooth away without impacting your ability to make natural facial expressions.

Dr. Brunner uses neuromodulators to treat the following concerns:


  • Smooth away horizontal forehead wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of glabellar lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows, also known as frown lines or the 11s)
  • Improve the formation of crow’s feet in the outer corners of the eyes
  • Contouring and slimming the jawline
  • Teeth clenching and grinding

In addition to the cosmetic applications, Dr. Brunner might recommend neuromodulator injections to treat medical conditions like teeth clenching and grinding, chronic migraines and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). In fact, neuromodulators were first used as a medical treatment, indicating their long track record of safety and efficacy.

Like dermal fillers, these treatments are quick, relatively comfortable, and require no downtime afterward. Patients do not typically require any numbing prior to the procedure, as Dr. Brunner uses a very fine needle at her Princeton medical spa. Unlike fillers, results can take up to two weeks to fully develop, although you might begin to see changes sooner than that. Once results are evident, they usually last 3-4 months before another session is needed to maintain your improvement.

Dr. Brunner uses these modulators in her Princeton facial rejuvenation practice:

Botox vs Dermal Fillers

Although neuromodulators and fillers are often used interchangeably when discussing injectable treatment options, they are actually quite different. Dermal fillers contain active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, while neuromodulators feature trace amounts of the botulinum toxin. As the name suggests, fillers fill in areas, adding support and smoothing out wrinkles from the inside out. Some fillers, like RHA, contain special formulas designed to move with your expressions for flawless, natural-looking results. Neuromodulators target muscles, reducing the appearance of lines by relaxing the muscles that form them.

Both neuromodulators and dermal fillers are effective when used as stand-alone treatments, but they can offer even more dramatic results when they are combined. Since the two products work on different areas of the face, you can undergo a Botox treatment on the forehead and a dermal filler in the nasolabial folds together to address both aging symptoms at the same time. Dr. Brunner will carefully assess your specific concerns to create a treatment plan customized to your precise needs and desired outcome.
