The quickest and easiest way to increase facial volume is through injectable fillers. They can fill wrinkles, deep creases and lines, as well as restore the fullness of the face that may have been lost due to adverse effects of time, gravity and aging.
The quickest and easiest way to increase facial volume is through injectable fillers. They can fill wrinkles, deep creases and lines, as well as restore the fullness of the face that may have been lost due to adverse effects of time, gravity and the aging process. Our board-certified surgeons all offer this highly sought after procedure. This non-surgical aesthetic treatment is perfect for patients who want a fast and effective anti-aging treatment. Injectable fillers can help improve the appearance of the following:
- Nasal-labial folds
- Marionette lines
- Wrinkled or sagging cheeks and tear trough
Additionally, fillers can be injected into the lips to make them look fuller and more visually appealing. Before our surgeons inject patients with the fillers, patients are typically locally anesthetized with a cream. Then, our surgeons inject a local anesthetic into the treatment area to reduce discomfort during the procedure. Lastly, we recommend our patients get their second round of injections five to six months after their initial procedure.
Benefits of Injectables
The procedure can:
- Improve the look of lines and wrinkles
- Rejuvenate the look of the face
- Make you appear younger and more energized
Before & After
Types of Injectables
Autologous Tissue Injectables: “Autologous” simply refers to the use of one’s own tissues or fat. Our surgeons harvest fat from the patient’s own body and re-inject it into the treatment region after it is purified. Results vary from one patient to another depending on the body’s re-absorption rate. Two or three fat injection sessions can ensure permanent results.
Restylane®: Restylane® is an advanced hyaluronic acid injectable that contains hyaluronic acid – a natural substance found in the body. Typically, this anti-aging substance lasts approximately six to nine months. Additionally, for patients who wish for longer maintained results, we recommend undergoing a repeat session. At My Houston Surgeons, we offer Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft®.
Xeomin®: As your skin ages, repeated expressions can cause permanent frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions, and allow frown lines to temporarily soften or eliminate. The procedure includes a series of tiny injections into designated muscles of your face that are causing the unwanted lines and wrinkles. There may be mild discomfort during the injection, however Xeomin® is very safe. Furthermore, the treatment takes only a few minutes, requires no anesthetic, and recovery is immediate, allowing you to return to work with no restrictions that same day.
Permanent Injectables: Silicone-based injectables can offer patients permanent results; however, as they are a synthetic material being injected into a metabolizing body, they do not come without a certain risk and complication.
Quality Patient Care
Our surgeons along with the supporting staff at the practice provides full support and care for patients right from their initial consultation stage through recovery. We ensure patients’ safety and comfort by safely and effectively using injectables in a top-notch surgical center.
