Restore Youthfulness with Dermal Filler Injections
At Houston Dermatology Associates of Houston, Texas, our team serves patients in and around the community with a wide selection of services for the skin, hair, nails, and body. We provide dermal fillers as a way for patients to help restore volume to the aging face. They can be used to restore cheek definition, fill dark circles or even fine lines around the lips.
What are dermal fillers, and how do they improve skin appearance?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances used to fill in folds and lines, and add volume and fullness to areas of the face that have lost volume. The fillers that are usually used at Houston Dermatology Associates are Hyaluronic Acid fillers. HA fillers are temporary dermal fillers, and unlike other fillers, HA exists naturally in the body.
What can dermal fillers accomplish?
These substances can also be used to enhance facial features such as lips, cheeks, and chin. Results from dermal filler injections typically last 1-2 years before needing touch-ups. They can restore facial volume and smooth lines that contribute to an aged appearance on the face. They cannot fix sagging skin but instead fill lines and add volume for a youthful, finished look.
What can I expect from my dermal filler appointment?
First, we will consult with you to determine if you are a proper candidate for dermal fillers and decide which one fits your needs best. Then, the targeted areas are cleansed, and a topical numbing cream may be applied before the injections take place. The process is relatively quick, with minimal discomfort and downtime afterward. Results can be seen immediately but continue to improve over time as the filler settles in. Patients are encouraged to book their next appointment for injections before they leave to ensure they can maintain the results with time.
