Dermal Fillers

At our Houston office, we are proud to offer our clients Juvederm, a family of dermal fillers that includes five different formulations that correct volume loss, facial lines, and folds, and can enhance facial features. These fillers provide a long-lasting solution for wrinkles and other signs of aging. They also allow those who want to create subtle, natural-looking changes to their features the ability to do so.

What Are They?

Juvederm fillers are created with a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that the body uses to help keep the skin hydrated and moisturized from the inside out. These fillers are made of a crystal clear gel form of hyaluronic acid and lidocaine, a numbing agent, that helps create the most comfortable experience during the injection process.

These fillers add volume beneath the surface of the skin to create a natural-looking yet smooth appearance. They are also successful at:

  • Restoring volume to areas of the face that have become hollow-looking
  • Smoothing and filling moderate to severe lines and wrinkles
  • Lifting drooping and sagging cheeks and contouring them
  • Adding volume to the lips and smoothing out vertical lip lines



What Do They Treat?

The most common use of Juvederm fillers is for the correction of the signs of aging, specifically volume loss in the face. However, they can also be used to subtly enhance the features, including augmenting the lips, whether they have thinned as a result of the aging process or you just want to have fuller lips.


Volume Loss

The primary goal of a dermal filler is to treat and correct volume loss that results from the aging process. If you have sagging, drooping, or hollowness in different areas of your face due to the aging process, a Juvederm filler will restore volume to the area to lift, plump, and contour your face for a youthful-looking appearance.

If volume loss has led to the development of facial lines and folds such as nasolabial folds on your face, there is a filler from this collection that will improve the appearance of those folds and lines.

Facial Enhancements

Juvederm fillers also are used to enhance the features of the face to create subtle improvements. Those who want to augment their lips can do so with one of the formulations from this collection. Those who want to improve the appearance of their profile can do so with injections in the chin. Those who want to sculpt their cheeks can add volume to improve their appearance with one of the fillers from this collection.

How Quickly Do Results Appear?

The benefit of dermal fillers is that results appear immediately. The wrinkles and lines that you walked in with will dissipate, smooth, and be plumped immediately following your appointment. Your final results will take a little longer to appear as it takes a little time for the filler ingredients to settle into the skin.


How Long Do Results Last?

All of the fillers within this collection provide long-lasting results. The total amount of time that results will last depends on which filler is used during your treatment:

  • Juvederm XC: lasts up to 12 months
  • Ultra XC: lasts up to 12 months
  • Voluma XC: lasts up to 24 months
  • Vollure XC: lasts up to 18 months
  • Volbella XC: lasts up to 12 months


How Long Does a Treatment Take?

The benefit of cosmetic injectables is that appointments are relatively quick. Once you develop a treatment plan with an injector at our Houston office, you will be ready to schedule an appointment, which will take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes to complete.


Will It Hurt?

Although injections do involve the insertion of a needle into your skin, you can rest assured that we will do everything in our power to make you as comfortable as possible during your treatment. Juvederm fillers contain lidocaine, which is a mild numbing agent that helps you stay comfortable both during and after the injection process.
The needle used to administer injections is very thin, which is another aspect of the treatment that helps create the most comfortable conditions during treatment. Additionally, if needed, we can apply a topical numbing agent to your skin before your injection so that you don’t feel a thing.


Who Are Dermal Fillers Right For?

Dermal fillers are designed for those who want to correct the signs of aging on their face or enhance their features for natural-looking results. If you are an adult in good health over the age of 21 and want to experience all that Juvederm fillers can offer, you are most likely a candidate for treatment. The best way to determine if these fillers are right for your goals is to schedule an initial consultation with one of our injectors.

During this consultation at our Houston office, the injector will review your health history, make sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients included in these fillers, discuss your problem areas, listen to your goals, and then determine your candidacy. If you are a candidate, we will develop a treatment plan that will help you reach your aesthetic goals.


Taking the Next Step

You don’t have to be a victim of the aging process. Facial lines, folds, and volume loss are a natural part of aging, but they can be treated and we have just the way to do so. Dermal fillers provide that solution so that you can temporarily treat aging and still look natural and like yourself, just without the signs of aging.
