Featured Image

Injectable dermal fillers offer more options than ever for men and women to reinvent their look, restore more youthful features, and otherwise enhance their appearance with natural-looking, long-lasting results. With all the fillers available today, many patients have questions about where to start and which fillers may be the best choice for them. At Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe and our team of Dallas, TX injectable specialists are here to help you better understand the many possibilities that dermal fillers have to offer and guide you toward the specific filler products that may be most suitable and effective for you. Here, you'll find a helpful introduction to some of the most compelling ways fillers can be used to enhance your facial features.

What do fillers do?

Generally speaking, injectable dermal fillers are designed to add volume to certain areas of the face — and body, in some cases — to plump up deflated features, boost natural contours, smooth away lines and wrinkles, and otherwise create a more attractive and/or youthful-looking appearance.

How do fillers add volume to the face?

When injected into certain areas of the face, dermal fillers add instant volume to the area, helping to boost and improve contours while improving facial harmony and balance overall. Each collection of fillers contains a unique set of ingredients that are designed for a specific purpose and/or area. For example, Sculptra® contains poly-L-lactic acid that lends itself well to restoring volume in the mid-face, while Restylane® Kysse relies on hyaluronic acid (HA) to add soft, natural volume to the lips.

Another unique way that fillers can be used is to shape and sculpt certain features, like the jawline and nose. In a nonsurgical nose job, for instance, fillers can be strategically injected into certain areas of the nose to correct asymmetry, reduce a prominent nasal hump, project the nasal tip, and more.

Which filler do I need?

Because each filler has a unique purpose and application, it is important to consult with an experienced injector to better understand how your concerns may be best addressed with fillers. During your initial consultation for dermal fillers in Dallas, TX, our knowledgeable team will discuss your available filler options and help determine which one may be most appropriate for your individual concerns and goals. Among the most popular filler products offered today are:

Can fillers and wrinkle relaxers be used together?

Absolutely. Although wrinkle relaxers do not impact facial volume specifically, they can certainly be used to complement the volume enhancements made with fillers. For many patients, a combination of injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX® or Dysport®, and dermal fillers provide the most complete, natural-looking, and longest-lasting transformation possible that keeps them looking youthful and fresh.
