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.
Injectable Fillers Reviews
"Made me a believer - Dr. Toledo is the best - hands down. I had tried everything for my (I would like to believe genetically driven) double chin - kybella, threads, injectables - nothing was working. Right when Dr. Toledo saw me he said - all you need is a little lipo to get rid of that fat - and he was 100% right. He did exactly that and I could not be more pleased with the results. I feel like a new person. ..."- K. / RealSelf / Dec 27, 2018
"I'm not one to write reviews because I'm very private about my work and who I see for my work. As upset as I am I'm trying to maintain the strength to share my story. First off Dr. Toledo is aware of my financial struggles and I've been very up front about it to him. My family has been put through the ringer so much it's drained me. So I've only wanted to go in for more practical things. Dr. Toledo was mentioning to me he was worried about my sunken in face. I keep going in for filler and Botox and he does it but apparently that's not enough. He said to put a consultation on the books. So I did for getting my eyes done. That day I came in and he laughed at me saying what I needed was to eat a gallon of ice cream. Dr. Toledo made me feel degraded, and I feel the Botox and fillers did not work or last. I spent 3200 on fillers and Botox every few months, and it didn't work. Then he tries to sell me surgeries, while pushing more injections while saying he doesn't like injections. My self-esteem is broken, and well I'm broke! Please do your research and go elsewhere. He is not a skilled or caring Doctor, and the results are not there. So so sad over this.Updated on 11 Nov 2016:I went in again for Botox and filler and all is well. Actually, all is fabulous! I looked great for my daughter's wedding-- I was asked if I was not her mother, but her sister! Glad Dr. Toledo and I gave it another try because it turns out he's amazing!"- K. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2017

If I decide to ever do anything else, I would only come to Dr. Toledo - I tell all of my friends if they want to do anything, make sure to go see Dr. Toledo."- K. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2019

"Ive work in the health care industry for 22 years. I highly recommend DrToledo to all my clients & friends for any plastic surgery or fillers. Dr Toledo has an outstanding talent & gift to see each patients' best beauty with the least surgery or injectables. I read an anonymous review that provoked me to write my hands down best plastic surgeon in Dallas review. This poor gal/gal or undecided made personal attacks and I'd like to clarify. Dear heart, Dr Toledo was simply being ethnical so don't feel rejected or unsatisfied. The 'Hollywood look' u want is code for over pumped & pulled - It's exactly why Dr Toledo is so gifted. He knows that's not beauty -it's tacky drama & desperate. Dr Toledo will never stoop to overdone procedures and it's exactly why I & 99% of his patients have gone to him & have been so highly confident recommending him for years. Funny this 1 bad review choose to remain anonymous but wanted an over done 'Hollywood Look' - the 99% of us would be horrified if Dr Toledo ever did that just to please your poor attention seeking self"- D.P. / Google / Mar 26, 2017
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
How much do injectable fillers cost?
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?
The type of injectable filler chosen for your treatment will be based on the area being treated and your wanted outcome. Depending on whether you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines or are wanting to create fuller, plumper lips, we will understand your needs before determining the best filler for optimal results. 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.
