Dermal Fillers in Austin, TX with Dr. Yula Indeyeva

Changes in facial volume are part of the aging process. As you get older, volume in the face diminishes, leading to wrinkles, sunken cheeks, and other signs of aging. Dermal fillers can restore facial volume in specific areas, offsetting age-related changes so you can gain and maintain a youthful appearance.

What are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?

Dermal fillers temporarily restore facial volume and rebuild the deep facial structure as it erodes and changes over time. There are many different types of fillers, each with varying consistencies and properties. One of the most popular classes of dermal filler is the hyaluronic acid filler.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar compound that is naturally produced by the body. It is a primary component of connective tissue and is found in the eyes, joints, and skin. HA fillers contain a synthetic hyaluronic acid in a smooth gel formulation.

Hyaluronic acid is highly biocompatible, meaning the filler will slowly break down through the body’s natural processes. The speed of this breakdown process depends on each individual’s metabolism as well as the consistency of the filler. To maintain results, fillers may be reinjected every few months.

What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Facial fillers can be injected into many areas of the face to:

  • reduce wrinkles, lines, and other imperfections
  • restore contours
  • improve facial symmetry

These fillers are also used in non-surgical lip augmentation.

What to Expect from Dermal Fillers in Austin, TX

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical injectable treatment. This treatment is administered through a series of small injections in a treatment room at our office location in Austin, TX.

Prior to undergoing treatment with injectable dermal fillers, patients first meet with Dr. Indeyeva for a consultation. Here, you and Dr. Indeyeva will discuss your treatment goals and develop a specialized injection plan. We’ll also answer your questions and explain the risks and benefits of this procedure.

After the consultation, Dr. Indeyeva will personally perform your filler treatments. Hyaluronic acid fillers are administered by injection. Patients receive several small injections across the treatment areas. After the injections, patients can immediately return to work and other activities.

FAQs Dermal Fillers in Austin, TX

When injectable treatments are used in combination, better results can often be achieved. We commonly pair fillers with Dysport. These treatments work harmoniously to rejuvenate the entire face.

Some practices call these combination injectable treatments a liquid facelift or non-surgical facelift. Dr. Indeyeva feels this terminology is misleading. While injectables can create stunning results, they are not comparable to a surgical facelift performed by a skilled facial plastic surgeon.

Both hyaluronic acid fillers and Sculptra restore a more youthful facial appearance, but these two treatments accomplish rejuvenation differently. HA fillers fill in wrinkles and volume loss using a synthetic hyaluronic acid gel. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid microspheres that encourage and stimulate collagen growth for a whole-face rejuvenation.

Dr. Indeyeva can help you decide which treatment is the best fit for your individual features and goals.

Patients can return to work and other daily activities immediately after their dermal filler injections. Most patients do not miss any work for their treatment or recovery.

Dermal fillers are injected quickly. The actual injection process typically takes no more than 10-15 minutes. If this is your first filler treatment with us, plan on spending about an hour with us to allow for sufficient time to conduct your consultation and perform the injections.

Patients may experience mild discomfort during the filler process, but most patients find their treatment is easily tolerated. Many fillers contain lidocaine, a topical anesthetic. This can increase comfort during injections.

While most patients are not bothered by the injection process, let us know if you’re concerned about pain or discomfort. Topical and regional anesthetics can be used for a more comfortable injection process if desired.
