Dr. Gerald Pierone, Jr. and the staff at Facial Rejuvenation FL know that choosing the
right professional to provide treatment for your skin can be confusing.
But if you’re seeking impeccably trained medical experts with first-rate credentials,
look no further than Dr. Pierone and Greer Hanson, ARNP, MSN, FNP-BC.
Dr. Pierone, who trained at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City and
received his medical degree from University of Florida, opened his Vero Beach
practice in 1990.
He originally became involved with facial fillers in 2004 when Sculptra was approved
as a treatment, because he couldn’t get local dermatologists or plastic surgeons to
treat his patients with HIV-related lipoatrophy.
Working himself with these patients who had severe facial volume loss, Dr. Pierone
became comfortable with three-dimensional facial reshaping and rebuilding using
large volume fillers.
He has performed clinical research throughout his entire career and is presently
participating in an FDA-sanctioned trial of Bellafill for treatment of HIV-related
lipoatrophy. Dr. Pierone has trained more than one hundred clinicians in advanced
facial injection techniques over the past six years.
Dr, Pierone has performed more than 20,000 procedures with dermal fillers that
include Bellafill (Artefill), Sculptra, Radiesse, Restlyane, Belotero, Voluma and
Juvederm. He is the leading injector of Bellafill in the United States and has achieved
Black Diamond Elite status with Allergan – Juvederm, Voluma, and Botox, a
designation held by the top 1-percent of all doctors.
Hanson joined the Facial Rejuvenation FL team in 2011. She performs many of the
procedures Dr. Pierone provides, including facial injections (Bellafill, Voluma,
Juvederm, Kybella, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse) and toxins (Botox, Dysport), laser
resurfacing, microneedling with PRP, and body contouring (Ultherapy, Exilis,
She’s proficient in advanced injection techniques like the liquid facelift and use of the
minimally invasive micro cannulas for facial fillers. She trains other injectors on the
safe use of Bellafill, the only FDA-approved permanent filler and is a clinical team
leader for Coolsculpting and Ultherapy. Hanson is trained in the use of PDO Threads,
the newest non-invasive lifting procedure for the face and body. Previous career
experience includes Pediatric Intensive Care, Internal Medicine, and Cardiovascular
and Thoracic surgery.
Together, Hanson and Dr. Pierone continue to refine existing aesthetic techniques
and stay up-to-date on innovative approaches.

face over to true professionals, there’s no one like Facial Rejuvenation FL, located at
