What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

They’re known as “dermal fillers” because they do just that: these formulas actually fill the area just underneath the skin to create youthful plumpness and hide wrinkles. Facial fillers are FDA-approved and safe to address a wide variety of concerns, including:

  • Soften lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases
  • Volumize sunken cheeks and/or hollow temples
  • Fill in tear troughs (dark under-eye circles)
  • Enhance facial contours
  • Lift sagging skin
  • Plump and contour thin or dull lips
  • Treat laugh lines, marionette lines, and smoker’s lines
  • Restore volume to the backs of the hands
  • Stimulate brand-new collagen production in the skin

Am I a Candidate for Dermal Fillers? 

Dermal fillers in Austin are ideal for those patients who seek a safe, non-invasive, and non-surgical solution for age-related cosmetic issues. Injectables are ideal for treating wrinkles and lines, volume loss, poor definition in the jawline, tear troughs, deflated lips, and a hollowed appearance in the cheeks and temples. In addition, dermal fillers can be useful for improving the look of scars and indentations. 

Ideal candidates are comfortable with the short-term results dermal fillers provide, and they have realistic, positive expectations for their outcome based on a private consultation with our caring and experienced team.

How do Dermal Fillers Work?

No one is exempt from the signs of aging, no matter how well we take care of ourselves. As we age and lose facial volume, the contour of the face changes, causing shadow patterns to develop, while youthful highlights fade. Over time, the skin begins to turn hollow, sag, or becomes wrinkled. We lose our youthful, plump, firm skin and it becomes thinner, showing the underlying blood vessels. The lips thin out and lose their shape.

In our youth, facial features are defined and well contoured. This is commonly described as the triangle of youth. As aging occurs, the triangle becomes inverted. Generally as we age, facial bone changes, soft tissues (like muscles) fall due to gravity, and skin sags and droops downward. Facial fat-pads shift, while the fat-pads beneath the chin can increase in prominence, causing fullness between the neck and chin, also known as a “double chin.” The effect of the lower face getting fuller can be described as the pyramid of age. Dermal fillers work in different ways, but one of the primary ways they work is by providing hyaluronic acid to the areas where our body is no longer producing it or is lacking volume.

The goal of facial aesthetic treatment is to help temporarily restore facial volume and correct age related shadow patterns inherent to the aging face. Talk to your aesthetic specialist today about a facial assessment and discuss customized treatment options for your facial structure, genetics, and aging process, and learn how you can increase your satisfaction with your appearance.

Gaining a better understanding of how your face becomes altered over time may help you and your aesthetic specialist decide on the best treatment options to address your individual concerns.

What Exactly is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural, powerful component of the skin that does the following:

  • Retains moisture 
  • Holds collagen and elastin together 
  • Assists in tissue repair 
  • Protects the skin against microorganisms

Everyone is born with hyaluronic acid, but it starts to subside more and more with age. This is why hyaluronic acid fillers work so well. When injected, they have the ability to replace our lost hyaluronic acid — providing a rejuvenated, more youthful look.

Treatment Details

We will numb you before treatment with topical anesthesia, and Pro-Nox™ is an optional upgrade for anxiety. Fillers are administered with a very fine needle to reduce bruising and swelling, and also include lidocaine in the product itself for added comfort. Our Registered Nurse will inject in exactly the right areas to achieve the results you want. With treatment times at approximately 15-20 minutes, dermal fillers in Westlake, TX, are very convenient, and you will be able to go right back to your regular day after treatment.

Downtime and Results

Different facial fillers have different side effects, so during your consultation with us, we will go over what you can expect once your specific dermal filler has been chosen. Overall, dermal fillers can cause bruising, swelling, tenderness, redness, and itching for a day or two. Different facial fillers also have varying onset times and longevity of results. Again, after your filler has been selected, we will go over the details of onset and longevity with you.
