Dermal fillers offer the chance to create a more youthful facial appearance, and are a popular injectable treatment. Kimberly Johnston and the team at The Total You Medical Spa offer dermal fillers at the office in Houston locations on Business Center Drive, Bellaire, and at The Blossom Hotel. Schedule a visit online or by phone today to learn more about what dermal fillers can do for you.
When you’re young, the skin on your face is padded with a thick layer of collagen. That’s what creates the rounded contouring known as a “baby face.”
As the years pass, you lose much of that collagen, and your body doesn’t produce enough new collagen to make up the difference. That can leave your skin to sag and pool into lines and wrinkles, and cause sagging beneath your eyes and at your jawline.
Dermal fillers work to replace that lost volume. When injected into your face, dermal fillers smooth your skin and refine your facial contouring, creating a more youthful and well-rested appearance.
Many dermal fillers are made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance your body produces naturally. There are many different types of dermal fillers to choose from, each formulated for use in a specific area of the face.
All dermal fillers have a gel-like consistency. Thicker fillers are great for use in larger areas like the mid-face or cheeks. Thinner fillers are perfect for use in the small wrinkles around your eyes or lips.
Once injected into the deeper layers of your skin, the dermal filler material spreads to create a smoothing effect. The skin above the injection is plumped, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
A liquid facelift is a term used to describe a combination of injectable treatments. Neurotoxin-based injectables like Botox® and Jeuveau® work to temporarily reduce wrinkles and lines by preventing treated muscle tissue from fully contracting.
Combining these treatments with one or more different dermal fillers can create noticeable improvements in your overall facial contouring. This is a great option for people who want dramatic effects without the risks and recovery time associated with cosmetic surgery.
An experienced practitioner can use injectables to refine facial contouring and help you look younger and refreshed. While the results are temporary, you can always choose to come back in for another round of injections, extending your results.
