Dermal Fillers

Our highly skilled team of board-certified physicians at Houston’s Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics understands that every person coming into the office deserves a personalized, one-of-a-kind treatment plan. Everyone’s facial features are distinct and will change with time and the natural aging process. The first signs of aging are the appearance of fine lines and deeper creases, sometimes running across the forehead, around the eyes, the sides of the nose, and the along the corners of the mouth. Volume loss from losing fat and bone is to blame for some of these changes that may make you appear tired and unhappy. Injectable fillers are one of the easiest methods for easing these lines and restoring smooth, youthful looking facial features and skin without surgery.

We offer a large variety of services, including the full range of soft tissue fillers designed to lift and smooth the skin under the eyes, cheeks, lips, jawline, temples and chin. Dermal fillers can create a subtle yet significant improvement in your overall appearance, restoring a refreshed, youthful look. Our Houston, Memorial and Katy based physicians are expert injectors and will offer you their honest opinion and recommendations.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra and Ultra Plus

The Juvéderm family of injectable are the world’s leading dermal fillers. Made from cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Juvéderm’s unique formulation enhances the skin’s structure by adding volume and moisture. As the HA pulls in moisture from surrounding tissues, the skin is plumped, lifted, and the targeted wrinkles become smooth. Benefits of a Juvéderm session are immediate and can last for nine to 12 months, sometimes longer. Premixed with lidocaine (a topical anesthetic), Juvéderm injections are comfortable. Juvéderm comes in a variety of unique formulas, such as Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus, this family of fillers can be right for many needs.

Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus Can Improve:

  • Fine lines
  • Deeper facial creases
  • Nasolabial Folds (from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
  • Marionette Lines (from the mouth to the chin)
  • Age-related volume loss across cheeks and jawline
  • Smile Lines
  • Lips

The unique formulation of tiny HA molecules, with a gel-like consistency, makes Volbella is safe for the delicate tissue around the mouth to also fill in smoker’s lines. Volbella will plump the lips, create symmetry, ease lip lines, and enhance the Cupid’s Bow under the nose. Made with Allergan’s own Vycross™ technology, Volbella offers immediate results that look completely natural. The benefits of one Volbella session will last up to a full year.

With Vollure’s perfect mix of spreadability and durability, it will smooth wrinkles while retaining moisture for age-drying results. Approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment for facial lines and volume loss, Vollure brings results that last 18 months or more.

Juvéderm Voluma is a HA dermal filler, created especially to add volume and restore shape to the cheeks and mid-face region. Our face’s natural internal structure is responsible for maintaining the shape and location of the overlying, Voluma can help to restore structure by adding volume to precise locations. This thicker filler will smooth fine lines and lift sagging skin, as well as contour and shape areas experiencing volume loss, such as the cheeks and under the eyes. While results from Voluma are immediate, as the HA encourages the body’s natural production of collagen, the benefits will continue to improve. Results from one session can last up to two years. As Voluma is premixed with lidocaine, treatment is not considered painful.

Voluma Can:

  • Restore fullness of the cheeks
  • Replenish age-related volume loss under the eyes and mid-face
  • Lift sagging tissues
  • Smooth targeted skin
  • Improve the appearance for up to two years

Restylane® Refyne

Restylane is one of the oldest and most trusted dermal fillers on the aesthetic market. Their second generation of fillers include Refyne and Defyne, both created with XpresHAn Technology™. Although similar, each offers unique benefits through a slightly different cellular makeup. Refyne is a flexible filler, perfect for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Once placed deep in the tissue’s dermal layer, Refyne brings outstanding wrinkle reducing results. After being injected, the filler can be massaged and molded within the skin for superior precision and natural-looking results that last up to 12 months.

Restylane Refyne Will:

  • Improve Laugh Lines
  • Soften Marionette Lines
  • Allow for natural-looking expressions and facial movement
  • Lip Augmentation

Restylane® Defyne

Restylane Defyne is a slightly firmer dermal filler than its counterpart, Refyne. For this reason, Defyne is better suited for deep facial creases and folds. Once injected into the target area, the filler is massaged and contoured by hand, ensuring that it naturally molds within the tissue, achieving the desired results. Defyne offers customized results with long-lasting benefits, including needed support to the facial tissues. Made with Restylane’s unique XpreHAn Technology, the filler will last up to a year and offers results unmatched by any other injectable on the market today.

Restylane Defyne Can Improve:

  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Marionette Lines
  • Deep facial lines

Formerly known as Perlane, Lyft is a smooth, clear gel formula, created using large particles of HA, and designed to be injected deep within tissues. The one-of-a-kind filler is a good choice for smoothing Nasolabial Folds and moderate facial lines, as well as restoring volume loss.

Dermal Filler FAQ:

  • What are dermal fillers?
    Dermal fillers are a unique type of injectable treatment. Injected directly into the target area, fillers have the power to plump tissues, smooth fine lines, lift the skin, and replace age-related volume loss. Often providing instant results, fillers can last from nine months to over two years. For optimal facial rejuvenation, dermal fillers can be combined with other noninvasive techniques, such as Botox Cosmetic.
  • What type of wrinkles do dermal fillers treat?
    Fillers plump tissues and smooth fine lines by adding moisture to the skin and encouraging the body’s production of collagen. For this reason, fillers are the right choice for static wrinkles, or those caused by decreasing tissue elasticity and the loss of natural fatty tissue.
  • Where do Dr. Ravi and Dr. Gopathi perform their dermal filler treatments?
    Each dermal filler session is performed in one of the private treatment rooms at Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics’ Houston office.
  • When can I return to work after my dermal filler session?
    While the treatment area may remain mildly red and tender for the first day or so, patients are normally feeling fine to return to work or school immediately. Prior to the dermal filler session, Dr. Ravi and Dr. Gopathi will carefully explain what to expect from the recovery process.
  • What are the side-effects of dermal fillers?
    Dermal fillers are a safe and dependable way to temporarily smooth mild to severe facial lines or to restore age-related volume loss. While there is little serious risk with fillers, side-effects can include pinpoint bleeding, tenderness, bruising, and redness. These generally resolve after a day or two. More serious complications, including infection, scarring, and allergic reaction are extremely rare.
