Introduction to Dermal Fillers

At our boutique practice in Austin, dermal fillers are some of our most popular treatments. As we age, our lips and cheeks can feel like they are naturally losing volume. Whereas they were once plump and full, they begin to shrink a little each year. While it’s normal for our face to lose volume as we age, it doesn’t have to be something you must put up with. With the right provider, you can simply recreate natural contours and definitions without the need for invasive surgery. Using cosmetic filler treatments such as Juvederm, Voluma, Belotero, Radiesse, and Restylane, we can use fillers to inject the tissues to gently plump the skin and create a more youthful facial profile.

At Aesthetica MedSpa, our expert team will ensure that you are a good fit for Dermal Fillers in Austin, TX, and if not, we will help guide you through other cosmetic and medical treatments. We want you to feel good about yourself, look great, and be healthy.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are often used for treating deep-set facial wrinkles, and they can also add volume to hollow areas such as the cheeks, temples, and under the eyes, all of which are common effects of aging.

A major sign of aging, these lines are sometimes referred to as “smoker’s lines” because they are common in those who smoke, the process of puckering the lips repeatedly around a cigarette being the cause. Perioral rhytids (often referred to as perioral lines) are wrinkles around the edges of the lips. They can consist of very fine horizontal lines or deeper set wrinkles, and most commonly begin to make an appearance after the age of 40. However, perioral rhytids can also occur in nonsmokers. Sun damage can increase the likelihood of lines appearing, and some people are simply more likely to develop them as a result of their genetics.

There are three different types of dermal fillers available:


HA fillers are the most popular option since they are designed to bind water molecules to add volume beneath the skin. They’re regularly used to plump lips, smooth wrinkles, and folds, and remove scars, with their effects lasting between four and six months. We have a range of HA dermal fillers available, including Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, and Belotero.


Dermal fillers made from poly-L-lactic acid tend to be used to correct nasolabial folds the smile lines at each side of the mouth – and other contour deficiencies. These types of fillers help to stimulate collagen production to create a fuller, younger-looking appearance. Learn more about poly-l-lactic acid treatments like Sculptra.


Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is one of the most well-studied dermal fillers worldwide and is used to correct moderate-to-severe facial lines and folds, and to replenish lost volume. It uses a naturally occurring mineral form of calcium apatite and is biodegradable and will be reabsorbed naturally by your metabolic process.

Aesthetica MedSpa is proud to offer our Austin, TX patients the full line of Juvederm and Restylane, as well as Sculptra for facial filler and non-surgical butt lift.

Juvederm® in Austin is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and facial wrinkles, crow’s feet, thinning lips, and loosening skin. This anti-aging treatment can also “plump up” the lips, sculpt the cheeks, and restore a youthful oval shape to the face. It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. Because it is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible, no pre-treatment testing is needed. JUVEDERM in Austin comes in three formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Results generally last for two years and can be made to last even longer with follow-up and supplemental treatments.

Our Austin Juvederm treatments and other tissue fillers are proven skin volumizers. We can add needed volume anywhere on your face, as well as your lips. Revolumization can be a powerful tool in creating a more youthful, healthy appearance. The folds between our nose and mouth, at the angles of the mouth and chin, and especially the cheeks are all prime areas for adding volume. The results are immediate and side effects are minimal.

*Results will vary based on multiple factors

Juvederm Volbella XC is a revolutionary filler from Allergan which is transforming the way we treat “smokers lines”. With soft, natural, and incredibly long-lasting results, Volbella is FDA-approved for treating perioral rhytids and is the injectable of choice for those who want to gently and subtly enhance the shape of their lips. If you are looking for Juvederm Volbella in Austin, you can get in touch with our med spa experts, who will help give you the full, natural-looking lips of your dreams.

Juvederm Volbella XC has been specifically designed to alleviate perioral lines in a way that other fillers cannot match. Our Austin Juvederm Volbella treatment works by gently increasing the volume of the lips, which works to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, without creating an over-enhanced pout.

Loss of volume in the lips is a very common effect of aging along with perioral lines, which is why Volbella is an excellent choice for those who feel they have lost the natural shape of their lips, as a result of unsightly lines and volume loss. By carefully injecting Volbella into multiple areas of the lips, it is possible to restore the natural shape of the lips, minimizing the appearance of undesired lines and creating a more youthful-looking pout.

Since Volbella has such a soft consistency, it can also be used to gently smooth out crows feet, add a touch of extra volume to nasolabial folds (the lines which run from the outside of the nose to the outside of the mouth), and even smooth out other fine wrinkles on your face.

What makes Juvederm Volbella XC such a pioneering lip filler is its unique formulation which gives an incredibly smooth, natural finish. For those who want to reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth, but do not want their lips to be dramatically enhanced with too much volume, Volbella is the perfect compromise, as it allows our clinicians to create a more subtle, naturally plumped pout and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the lips.

The key to Volbella’s natural results is the inclusion of Vycross, a filler technology that Allergan has produced to create incredibly smooth injectable products. Vycross was first introduced to the market in 2013 when it was included in the formulation for Juvederm Voluma, a filler that is designed to alleviate volume loss throughout the face. The same natural results that Voluma provides can now be achieved for the lips, too.

By blending different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid in Volbella, Allergan has managed to create a filler that provides results for just as long as other well-established and popular Juvederm fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a key substance in fillers because it attracts and retains moisture that leads to lasting results. Although Volbella contains lower concentrations of hyaluronic acids, it can still provide a plumping effect for as long as 12 months, an impressive feat compared to other fillers.

From the makers of Botox and Juvederm, Vollure is Allergan’s solution to wrinkled, sagging skin. Whether you are looking to reduce the look of moderate to deep wrinkles, or you are looking for a healthy, youthful appearance, Vollure can help your skin look radiant for up to 18 months at a time.

While other Juvederm products last up to a year, you’ll experience longer-lasting results when you follow the optimal treatment plan provided by the Vollure experts at Aesthetica Med Spa. Get in touch with our friendly team to get started on your journey to smooth, youthful skin.

Vollure is a non-surgical, long-lasting solution to deeper wrinkles. Your Aesthetica Med Spa professional will use a series of deep injections that are placed throughout the treated areas of the face, such as the nose and eye areas, where deeper wrinkles tend to be found. Juvederm Vollure is gel-based, making it safe for use on most of the face.

Because the Vollure line of products includes a pain-reducing medicine called lidocaine, additional injections to prepare the facial areas for treatment are not necessary. Our team utilizes a combination of treatments that can be administered quickly and efficiently. Patients do not feel any notable degree of discomfort, and the numbness generally subsides within hours of the treatment. If you are fearful of needles, you may want to inquire about numbing creams that can help to make your visit more comfortable.

The Vollure treatment system by Allergan is not a surgical procedure and can be administered in as little as 15 minutes, depending on the amount of work to be completed; this will be discussed between you and your Med Spa expert. Longer treatment sessions may last upwards of 60 minutes, and results are typically seen after one treatment. There is no need to return for follow-up treatment until about 18 months later, when you’ll receive a facial analysis, and a new treatment strategy will be laid out.

Some patients ask if cosmetic products can be used to “plump” up wrinkles in other parts of their body, but Vollure has been approved for the facial area only. Juvederm offers several products for various regions of the face and neck. Be sure to consult with your Med Spa expert to choose the one that is right for you.

It’s not only perfectly natural to experience wrinkles as we get older, but also to lose tissue volume, resulting in a loss of definition in the apples of our cheeks. Voluma, a product of the Allergan Corporation, is an innovative, FDA-approved gel cosmetic filler that is designed exclusively to plump the cheeks and create a more youthful profile.

The fantastic thing about the Voluma treatment is that it doesn’t require surgery; the gel is simply injected deep into the tissue of the cheek area, giving you a natural-looking, 3-D lift. There are no scalpels, stitches, or scars; just a healthy, refreshed look with results that last up to two years. It is a first-of-its-kind cosmetic dermatology method, which is why many people are choosing to have our Voluma treatments in Austin. Get in touch with our expert med spa team to begin your journey to beautiful cheeks.

When you visit our med spa in Austin, you can expect to have a full consultation with a member of our experienced team and establish whether the treatment is right for you. Voluma is administered via injection, deep into the tissue, to support and smooth the overlying skin. You can expect an immediate result and will walk away from our office with a natural and younger look.

Voluma contains the local anesthetic, lidocaine, in each syringe, so that there is immediate relief for any discomfort felt during the injection progress. Complete recovery time from the Voluma treatment is around seven days, and you might experience some swelling and have the potential for a bruise. Some patients might experience mild side effects such as swelling, itchiness, bruising, and discomfort, however, once the area has fully healed, you can enjoy a youthful profile for up to two years, with no need for follow-up treatments during that time.

Our Austin Voluma treatment is designed for people over the age of 21, who would like to add more definition to their faces. While Voluma is designed mainly for the apples of the cheeks, it is also often used around the cheekbones and jawline to improve the natural contours of the face.

Restylane® is injected deep into the tissue via a fine needle which also contains lidocaine to help you manage any discomfort. This is so that it successfully adds volume to the area to support and smooth the overlying skin. A small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is included in the filler to minimize discomfort during the procedure. The treatment can take anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes, varying on the treatment area. Whilst mild tenderness, bruising, and swelling may be visible after the procedure, these side effects wear off within 2-7 days.

The volumizing effects of Restylane last between 6 to 12 months depending on the location of the injection. When you have Restylane in Austin at Aesthetic Med Spa you can speak to one of our cosmetic dermatology experts about the procedure and get a better understanding of how long your treatment will last. We are one of the most experienced injecting offices in Austin, having worked with Restylane in Austin since it first was introduced in the US.

Restylane products are the only fillers on the market that allow movement with natural expression while reducing wrinkles.

Defyne is one of the newest dermal fillers from the Restylane product line, produced by Galdarma. It works to smooth out those pesky nasolabial folds (from nose to mouth), and marionette lines (from mouth to chin) that come with age as our skin loses elasticity. Defyne does this with a specially formulated hyaluronic acid dermal filler combined with XpresHAn Technology™ as a clear gel.

Restylane Defyne is unique for the natural look it leaves you. While other fillers leave skin tight and stiff, unable to move or make a natural expression, Restylane products let you smile and laugh as normal, allowing you to express yourself comfortably, but without wrinkles!

Defyne aims to reduce the look of wrinkles while maintaining a natural look. When asked if the dermal filler did just that, 97% of people treated agreed that it did after one month of treatment and that they would have treatment again.

The Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale is often used to determine the effects of dermal fillers from a grade-1 (no wrinkles) to grade-5 (severe wrinkles.) Restylane Defyne has been shown to bring wrinkles down one grade in 79% of people after only 6 weeks of treatments. What’s great is that these results will last for up to 18 months as well.

Are nasolabial folds and marionette lines getting you down? Does the thought of not being able to move your face put you off from fillers? Then Restylane Defyne is for you. The formula is designed to allow for natural movement while smoothing out those mid-to-deep wrinkles.

Aesthetica Medspa is thrilled to introduce Restylane Kysse™ by Galderma, the newest FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler, designed specifically for the lips!

Restylane Kysse™ is made with XpresHAn Technology™ which gives the hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler more flexibility and tissue integration than traditional fillers on the market. Restylane Kysse™ offers unique cross-linking technology that gives the substance a balance between structure and flexibility, which is great for the lips and areas of the face with lots of movement. It can move along with the tissue seamlessly – giving it a very natural look and feel. Another reason we love Restylane Kysse™? The filler’s effects are long-lasting!

Restylane Kysse was specifically designed for the lips and has particles that are smaller than other dermal fillers on the market, the effects were shown to last up to one year as opposed to six to nine months.

Restylane is approved by the FDA to correct volume deficit in the back of the hands, for cheek augmentation, and correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. This is in addition to treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).

Treated with 1 mL of Restylane Lyft in the midface, 1 mL of Restylane-L in the nasolabial folds, and 0.7 mL of Restylane Silk in the lips and perioral (lip) lines around the mouth. 3 weeks after treatment.

In a clinical trial, subjects treated with Restylane Lyft reported improvement in the appearance of the midface area following treatments, with one treatment providing 95% improvement in just two months, and 73% improvement over 12 months.

Restylane Refyne is designed to be a more subtle treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. The product itself is more flexible, providing minimal support to the area in which it is administered. Restylane Refyne is designed to be less flexible and provide more substantial support in the areas in which it is applied. The depth of your wrinkles and the level of smoothing needed will determine which product is best for you. Using the Wrinkle Severity Rating Scale, where grade- 1 is the absence of wrinkles and 5 is very deep wrinkles, 79% of those treated with Refyne went at least one grade up after six weeks! With full treatment, you will see these results last for up to 18 months.

Refyne is a specially formulated hyaluronic acid combined with a dermal filler made with XpresHAn Technology™ in the form of a clear gel. It targets those marionette lines that run from the corner of your mouth to your chin and line from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds.) What’s great about Restylane Refyne is that not only does it reduce the look of those wrinkles and fine lines, but it also does it in a way that looks natural. You’ll be able to maintain the natural movement of your face, which is good because you’ll be smiling a lot with your new look!

Refyne is the only filler on the market that allows movement and natural expression. 97% of people treated with Restylane Refyne agreed, saying they were satisfied with the product and would also do the treatment again. Unlike treatments such as Botox, Refyne doesn’t cause paralysis of the muscle tissue, resulting in a more natural-looking wrinkle treatment.

Restylane Refyne is ideal for anyone with defined nasolabial or marionette lines who wants to get rid of them but still be able to have natural facial expressions.

If you are looking for an FDA-approved cosmetic solution to your wrinkled or thinning lips, then look no further than Restylane Silk. Produced by Galderma, Silk is used exclusively to improve the appearance of moderate to deep wrinkles in the nose and lip area as well as to improve the overall appearance of the lips themselves. This product is approved for people over the age of 21 and offers long-lasting results to get fuller, more natural-looking lips.

Restylane Silk works by targeting specific areas of the lips to make them appear fuller and larger in general. A few key areas that are treated are the corner of the mouth to make it appear longer, the “cupid’s bow” or arch of the lips to make them appear wider, and the middle of the lips to make them appear more symmetrical.

The product will be injected directly into the lips to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Restylane Silk comes in ready-to-use, sterile packaging that is for one-time use only, so there is no risk of cross-contamination or sterilization worries for the patient. Patients need only one session to begin seeing amazing results within 14 days of your treatment. Results can last up to 3 years, which is remarkable considering other lip-plumping products on the market only last 3-6 months or less! Of course, every patient is different and dependent on their habits and biology.

Patients may experience a variety of minor side effects that last about two weeks, but otherwise, the cosmetic treatment plan involving Restylane Silk is non-invasive and easy to tolerate for most people. This product has been approved for treating lines and wrinkles in the lip area only. It has not been determined how the product impacts other areas of the body. The good news is that Restylane offers a complete lineup of cosmetics all over the face and neck. Talk to your med spa staff about your options today.

Sculptra® is designed to perform subtly and gradually over time, to revitalize your skin and give you a smooth, youthful appearance. In contrast to other fillers, Sculptra works to stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. Utilizing poly-L-lactic acid, we work to address the underlying issues of aging skin. Our Austin Sculptra treatments rebuild lost collagen and give you a more youthful appearance that can last up to two years. Our treatments are fast, safe, and designed to work with most budgets, meaning that you can enjoy the benefits of renewed collagen and revitalized skin for years to come. By increasing collagen production, we can help restore your skin’s inner structure and increase facial volume that has diminished from aging.

Our Austin patients love Sculptra because they don’t need to devote an abundance of their free time to lengthy procedures and numerous follow-up appointments. Our Sculptra skin treatment in Austin only requires three to four quick and easy applications, to show significant progress and revitalized skin. We space each of the treatments out over a three-to-four-month window, to provide safe and consistent results. You will continue to see progress throughout the process, with many patients seeing improved results up to 24 months after the initial treatment.

What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are a suitable cosmetic dermatology treatment for a wide range of people who have lost the definition of facial features due to aging. It is suitable for plumping and softening cheeks, improving the look of cheekbones, or redefining the chin and jawline. It is also useful for minimizing lines around the lips and mouth. Further, if you were not born with the contours you always wanted, they can be created if you are being injected by a master injector, such as the practitioners we have at Aesthetica Med Spa.

Who are the Best Candidates for Dermal Fillers?

The dermal filling agent is designed for clients with moderate wrinkles in the cheeks or moderately severe smile lines (nasolabial folds). This treatment can also help to define your lips by making them appear fuller. Unfortunately, we can not recommend Dermal Fillers for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or patients who have allergies or skin conditions.

The best candidates for Dermal Fillers in Austin should be interested in improving their complexion by reducing lines and wrinkles from aging, and have the following characteristics:

Dermal Fillers Recovery

Though Dermal Fillers should not significantly impact any type of exercise or physical activity, it can help to wait 24 hours before doing anything too strenuous. Heightened physical activity can cause increased swelling and bruising, due to increased blood circulation and heart rates.

How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost in Austin?
