About Injectable Fillers
Injectable fillers (usually called dermal fillers) are often used to replace diminished facial volume. The face can lack volume for a number of reasons, but age and significant weight loss are the leading causes. The procedure works by injecting a liquid (the dermal filler) under the skin to fill sunken or hollowed areas. Fillers are a great, nonsurgical option for Dallas, TX individuals wanting to smooth fine lines, sagging skin, and/or wrinkles in order to create a more youthful appearance. There are many different types of fillers, including Restylane and Radiesse that may help meet the expectations and goals of each individual. To determine which injectable fillers are recommended for you, we invite you to visit Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center where Dr. George A. Toledo can help you make this decision.

The ideal candidates for injectable fillers would be anyone looking to replace diminished facial volume or decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Typically, individuals who have recently lost significant amounts of weight have areas on their face that are uneven or sunken in. This makes them great contenders for injectable fillers. Injectable fillers are also a great option for those who do not want to risk the scarring that can result from a surgical facelift.
Before your injection, Dr. Toledo will consult with you to learn more about your desired results and determine what product may best achieve them. He will then decide how much is needed and will gradually and evenly inject it through a very fine needle. Depending on the desired outcome, either half or an entire syringe could be used.
What to Expect
Injectable fillers are done as an in-office procedure in a very short amount of time. Due to the numbing agents, the process is typically very tolerable and requires little to no downtime afterward. There may be some swelling or bruising initially, but these symptoms should dissipate within a few short days. Typically, results can last from a few months to a year, depending on the product and the placement of the injection. Touch-ups may be needed periodically to optimize results.
Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of an injectable filler treatment will vary, depending on the type of filler and how much is needed to achieve desired results. During your initial consultation, we will create a customized treatment plan that best fits your needs. We will also provide you with an estimated cost for your treatment.
How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?

With so many different dermal fillers on the market, it can be difficult to identify which one is the best for you, but our team works to ensure you experience a rejuvenated, natural-looking complexion.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, work to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles (mostly in the forehead and around the eyes) by reducing the movement of facial muscles. Dermal fillers restore volume to the face in order to fill in deep lines, wrinkles, and certain types of scars. Injectable fillers can also be used to create fuller lips and cheeks.
How long will the results last?
The longevity of your results will be dependent on the type of filler used and what area was treated. For some patients, results may last up to a year while others may need a repeat treatment after six months. Touch-up treatments are available at our facility in order to maintain your results.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers can address signs of aging throughout your face by either smoothing static lines or adding volume. Fillers can be injected into moderate to severe parentheses, marionette, and corner lines around your mouth and nose. Additionally, they can temporarily add volume to your cheeks and lips.
