The Pontius Technique

The Pontius Technique

A surgical facelift is not for everyone. They are costly and result in a lot of downtime. The Pontius Technique is different. This procedure relies on dermal filler injections to contour and lift the face. Get in touch with our Santa Barbara office to learn more and schedule a consultation today.

What Is The Pontius Technique?

Master Injector and Anti-Aging Expert, Allison Pontius MD believes ideal facial beauty results from treating the face as a whole to enhance the balance of all the facial features. After a thorough analysis, Dr. Pontius injects small volumes of filler to multiple areas to bring harmony and symmetry to the face. This helps lift and contour the face. She thoughtfully addresses each area to help you look like the very best version of yourself. By treating the entire face, the filler is undetectable and only your balanced, natural beauty shines through.

Who is a Candidate?

Almost everyone can benefit from optimizing their facial features. This can be customized to each patient’s needs. The best candidates have mild-moderate signs of aging without significant sagging skin. If you have a lot of sun damage or skin laxity a surgical facelift may give you the best results. If the sagging is present but not severe then a non-surgical radiofrequency skin tightening procedure may be recommended first. 

Treatments are customized to each patient and may include the following areas:

  • Forehead
  • Temples
  • Cheeks/midface
  • Tear trough/under eye hollows
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jawline
  • Chin
  • Marionette lines

A great technique to complement full-face rejuvenation is the “Doorstop Lift”. The filler is injected in a series of droplets in front of the small ligaments between the deeper layers of the face and the skin. The filler acts as a doorstop and supports the lower face. It can help with marionette lines and jowling in conjunction with strategically placed filler in other areas of the face.
