Dermal fillers offer a safe and reliable solution for several skin concerns. The fillers available at our Houston office have been carefully selected for their efficacy and can be used to treat a comprehensive range of issues including:

  • Loose and sagging skin
  • Fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Ill-defined jawline
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Hollow eye sockets
  • And more

The best way to learn what a dermal filler may be able to do for you is through a one-on-one consultation with board-certified anti-aging and cosmetic physician Dr. Swapna Gopathi at our comfortable Houston office.

What You Need to Know About Dermal Fillers

  1. Different Fillers Have Different Ingredients. Common active ingredients in dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid, synthetic calcium hydroxyapatite, poly-l-lactic acid, and bovine collagen. Active ingredients influence the ways a filler works
  2. Some Fillers Last Longer Than Others. Some fillers can produce results for six to 12 months. Others may produce results for as long as 24 months. Touch-up treatments can help to extend results
  3. Not All Fillers Are Good for Lip Augmentation. Lip augmentation is a specific procedure that requires fillers that have been formulated to enhance the lips. Not all fillers will do this. Some may actually cause asymmetry, uncomfortable lumpiness, and excessive swelling
  4. Your Choice of Provider Matters. In the wrong hands, fillers can result in infection, asymmetry, and other complications. Choosing a provider who is trained, experienced, and trustworthy is essential for the best results
  5. You Might Bruise. Even with a gentle and experienced provider, bruising, redness, and slight swelling are all possible. Proper aftercare will help to speed recovery and improve comfort
  6. Select Fillers Can Be Reversed. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®, can be reversed if the results are displeasing. While not commonly needed, this option allows treatment to be risk-free, providing the ability to return to your natural look quickly and without risk when desired

We are pleased to offer products containing hyaluronic acid from the Juvéderm® and Restylane® families. We also offer Sculptra®, a poly-l-lactic acid filler that offers remarkably long-lasting results.
