Dermal Filler Injections

Dermal Fillers are cosmetic injectables designed to enhance the overall look of one’s face by smoothing out facial wrinkles, restoring volume, and adding more fullness to your skin and lips. 

If you’re hoping to minimize the signs of aging, then dermal fillers may be an ideal choice for you. Our specially trained providers are skilled at helping you achieve the look of smoother and fuller skin.

Read on to learn more about dermal fillers and the benefits they provide.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the surface of the skin. These fillers add volume and fullness, transforming wrinkly and saggy areas of the skin so they become smooth and plump.

These injections treat signs of aging by removing wrinkles and scars to achieve a smoother appearance. Additionally, fillers can help reshape certain areas like your jawline, provide cheek enhancement, and create a fuller look in different areas of the face, such as the lips.

Dermal fillers are fast-acting, with results taking form within the first week of treatment. Often, results continue to improve over the following weeks. However, results will vary based on the individual. 

There are several brands and types of fillers on the market, most of which contain either Hyaluronic acid (HA), calcium hydroxylapatite, or

Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) — with hyaluronic acid (HA) being the most common. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers help hydrate the skin and create elasticity. In addition, they can easily be broken down by the body as their results fade. 

What Happens During a Dermal Filler Treatment?


Here at Houston Injections, we consult with all clients before administering treatment. During this consultation, we’ll discuss the results you’re looking for and determine the best dermal filler to achieve this look. We’ll also review your medical history and determine if dermal fillers or a particular type of filler is right for you. 

Day of Dermal Filler Treatment

The process of receiving dermal filler injections is similar to receiving Botox. We’ll first have one of our skilled providers prep your skin by cleansing the injection site and applying a topical anesthetic. 

Following this, we’ll begin administering the filler in the areas we decided during the consultation. Since fillers are fast-acting, we may make adjustments throughout the process to ensure the desired look is achieved.

Following the procedure, we’ll provide you with aftercare instructions and discuss scheduling any follow-up appointments. 

While initial results can display immediately, full results may be more gradual. Depending on the filler, results can last anywhere from six months up to a few years. It’s important to talk with your provider about how long results typically last for the type of filler you received so you can schedule your next treatment.
