Cosmetic Dermal Fillers and Injectables in Austin Texas

Discover a more youthful appearance with our injectable treatments

Those who are affected by aging often report an increase in fine lines, wrinkles, creases or folds in their skin, hollow areas around their temple or cheeks, and even thin or flat lips. Often many choose to receive surgery although this can result in several weeks of recovery and social downtime.

For those who wish to see results fast without having to go under the knife, there are a wide variety of dermal fillers available today. Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane all help provide a more youthful appearance in an instant by providing volume and fullness. It’s no surprise that these treatments are known as liquid facelifts due to their effectiveness in providing a youthful appearance without having to go through extensive treatments.


Botox®, Xeomin, and Dysport

What is Botox?

Botox has long been known for being an injectable treatment that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. These fine lines and wrinkles appear to vanish from the skin shortly after treatment and often provides those who use it with a younger appearance that would not be possible otherwise.

What is Xeomin and Dysport?

Xeomin and Dysport are similar to Botox, being classified as neuromodal injectables. By blocking nerve impulses, these injectables can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and provide a more youthful look in a similar way. Our practice offers all three, Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport, and depending on your unique case we might use one over the other to ensure that you get the full benefits of injectables.

How does Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport work?

Botox injections work by targeting muscles on your face and neck and blocking signals from the nerves, making the wrinkles relax and soften in appearance. It’s useful for those who desire a more youthful and softer appearance since it helps treat the appearance of fine lines on the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet. It’s also known as the liquid facelift due to its effects on the skin.

How long do the effects of Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport last?

Results from the Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport treatment last for 3-6 months. After the injection is applied it usually takes around a week or two for the full effect, however the injection takes only minutes and often has minimal discomfort if any at all.

Botox will need to be reapplied once the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear, although their appearance tends to reduce in time with continuous use of Botox.

Dermal Fillers


Juvederm injections provide a long-lasting and smooth appearance to skin that is facing moderate to severe facial wrinkles.

How does Juvederm work?

Out of all dermal fillers available on the market, Juvederm provides the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid (a substance commonly found on the body). This results in a smooth gel that flows into the skin easily and creates a more natural appearance and feel compared to other liquid injectables. Other gel fillers contain a variety of particles, which is contrasted by the smooth formula used for Juvederm.

It’s applied by simply injecting it into the desired treatment area and provides often instant results.

How long does Juvederm last?

A single treatment of Juvederm can last up to 1 year.


What is Restylane?

Restylane is a cosmetic dermal filler made of a gel consisting of a clear hyaluronic acid. This gel provides volume and helps rebuild the collagen layer in your skin that has been weakened by sun or smoke damage). It’s also helpful in providing a fuller appearance to hollowed areas of the face, raising the depressions to be even with the surrounding skin. The result is smoother looking skin that allows for an improved texture while providing a more even tone.

How long does Restylane last?

Restylane lasts for up to 18 months. It’s usually applied through the use of a microfine needle which results in minimal discomfort to the treated area and allows for often instant results.

Restylane Lyft®

Formerly known as Perlane®

Similar to Restylane, Restylane Lyft has a higher viscosity and allows for much better treatment in the cheeks and nasolabial (nose and lip) area.
