At Personique On The Spot in Austin, TX, dermal fillers are some of our most popular solutions to helping our patients have a more youthful apperance. We all have areas that we wish were different, but that doesn’t mean it needs to stay that way. Whether it be bigger, poutier lips, firmer skin, or fewer wrinkles, there is a non-surgical option for you! Personique On the Spot in Austin, TX offers our patients a quick and easy way to improve all of those issues with Dermal Fillers!
Dermal fillers can help diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. It uses a soft tissue filler that is injected at different depths of your skin. Depending on where you inject the filler, they can plumpen thin lips, enhance contours, improve recessed scars, and even help those with early signs of aging.
While there are different types of fillers used for different effects, Hyaluronic acid is one of the most commonly used. Also known as HA, hyaluronic acid is a natural component found in your body that is found in your skin’s connective tissue. There is also Calcium hydroxylapatite or the ability to use your fat taken from another donor location on your body. While fillers, unfortunately, won’t last forever, they will last you anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on which you use.
At Personique On the Spot, we offer our Austin patients the best Dermal Fillers on the market. Below, we have listed and described what each one is capable of doing. When you come in for your consultation, our knowledgeable staff will be able to help you determine the best option for you.
Juvederm is an FDA-approved injection that is filled with a water-binding natural ingredient known as “hyaluronic acid”. This ingredient is already found naturally in the skin and works wonders in creating a fuller, more youthful complexion without requiring any harsh chemicals or dangerous additives.
One of the keys to having beautiful-looking skin is the presence of youthful volume. Unfortunately, as we get older, our skin naturally begins to fall flat and lose this volume, bringing on wrinkles and fine lines. Juvederm is one of the best solutions to reduce the signs of aging that we are forced to deal with. This treatment can instantly add volume and create fuller, plumper & healthier-looking skin around the face. Also, the fluid consistency of Juvederm creates some of the most natural-looking results that our patients love.
When Juvederm is injected into the skin, it attracts water, which creates a cushioning, skin-plumping effect. Juvederm injections work great on instantly diminishing deeper facial folds, restoring volume to the cheeks and chin, the grooves between the cheeks and nose, and around the outer corners of the mouth. The lips are also a popular place to inject Juvederm since the hyaluronic acid provides a soft, natural-feeling consistency to successfully enhance the volume of thin lips.
Radiesse is a volumizing filler that contains tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. These calcium microspheres are very similar to the natural minerals found in our bodies. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving only natural collagen behind. This treatment is unique in that it stimulates the production of new collagen, so even after the filler material breaks down, newly replenished collagen remains around the injection site to maintain a firm, smooth complexion.
Once injected, Radiesse starts working immediately to restore volume where the effects of aging have caused the skin to grow slack and hollow. The filler acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structural support that lifts and plumps the skin while stimulating your natural collagen to grow. The production of fresh collagen continues for several months after treatment for long-lasting results.
Restylane and Restylane-L are for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane and Restylane-L are also indicated for injection into the lips. The Restylane® line of hyaluronic acid fillers provides natural-looking results.
The Restylane line smooths away facial wrinkles and folds, provides subtle lip enhancement, smooths the lines around the mouth, adds lift and volume to the cheeks, and helps reverse the signs of volume loss in the back of the hands.
Voluma is a new hyaluronic acid filler by Allergan (the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic). Voluma is from the Juvederm family and is designed to treat large-scale volume loss. Voluma has shown to be very effective in restoring volume loss associated with aging cheeks, cheekbones, and the chin area.
Voluma works to plump up deflated facial tissues by replacing lost hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring element in human connective tissue. It is one of the essential structural components that provide support and volume to the skin. When we are younger, our bodies produce an ample amount of HA, which is why in our earlier years skin is soft and supple. As the years pass though, HA (along with collagen and elastin) begin to diminish, causing the skin to become lax and dry and the face to lose its youthful volume.
Voluma is unique in that it is the only dermal filler made specifically to address volume loss in the cheeks, chin, and jawline. Its unique formulation, made of hyaluronic acid, allows it to be injected deeply into hollow areas with a small needle. The gel works with your natural collagen and elastin to smooth and plump skin instantly with long-lasting results.
Our Austin patients have discovered some of the many benefits that Dermal Fillers can offer. We have listed some of them below:
Any adult can be a good candidate for getting Dermal Fillers in Austin, TX, but the best candidates are those who:
Dermal Fillers are great for those who are dealing with the following issues:
The first step in getting specialty Dermal Fillers in Austin is to contact our office and schedule your free consultation. When you come in for this appointment, your technician will answer any questions you have about the treatment, listen to your desires, and give you a detailed evaluation. Once they come up with a plan for you and if you agree with the assessment, then you will be able to schedule an appointment with our Patient Coordinator, who will also provide you with a pricing breakdown for your treatment and any instructions you will need to follow before you get your Dermal Fillers.
Your experience may differ from another patient depending on what Dermal Filler you’re getting, however, the steps in the treatment are very similar. On the day of your injection treatment, the technician will begin by marking strategic points on your face for the injection sites for the filler. There may also be a few photographs taken to be able to compare your before-and-after appearance.
Next, the injection sites will be cleaned with an antibacterial agent to prevent infection. To reduce any pain from the injection, the technician will use a very cold instrument to chill the skin, anesthetic ointment to numb the skin, or an injection of local anesthesia, depending on what was discussed during your consultation. The injections are typically considered to be tolerable by most patients, although some do feel the slight pinch of the needle.
The injection normally only takes a few moments per site, with the technician injecting the filler, gently massaging around to evenly disperse it, and then evaluating the result, only adding more filler when needed.
When you and your technician are satisfied with your results, any markings made will be cleansed off. You will be offered an ice pack to help reduce any swelling and alleviate discomfort.
You will probably feel a bit tender for a day or two near the injection sites, but it usually won’t require any medication.
The whole process can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as an hour, depending on how many injections you are receiving.
Every Dermal Filler will have a different recovery time, and even then, it can vary from patient to patient. Regardless, with any of them, you should be able to resume most activities right away. We do recommend avoiding any intense physical activity for at least the first 24 – 48 hours so that there is minimal swelling or bruising.
You should bear in mind that your initial appearance after receiving any dermal filler may include:
Most of these conditions can easily be alleviated with topical icing and gentle massage, improving within a matter of hours, but can take up to a few days.
The cost of Dermal Fillers in Austin is completely based on the type of filler being used and how much is used. When you come in for your consultation, your technician will be able to discuss what method is best for you and how much they think you will need.

No. Dermal Fillers are not painful, however, some patients do feel the pinch from the needle as it is inserted. Our technicians will typically use ice to numb your lips before the insertion, so most patients barely feel anything
How many appointments will I need?
Dermal Fillers will last you a while with even just 1 session, so you will only need to have repeat appointments once your body begins to naturally dissolve the filler and you wish to maintain the appearance.
When you first get your Dermal Fillers, you will be able to notice a change in your appearance almost immediately, however, you may also notice your skin to be slightly irritated or swollen. Once your filler has had a chance to settle in place and the swelling goes away after a few days, you will be able to enjoy the full results of your treatment.
Certainly! If you are interested in additional areas of treatment, please discuss this during your consultation. Many of our Austin clients will combine their Dermal Fillers with BOTOX or other fillers such as Kybella to enhance their facial features, or may even combine it with a Chemical Peel for a smooth, youthful appearance.
Our technicians are very skilled and have plenty of experience to ensure a safe and positive experience, however, there are some possible risks and side effects associated with Dermal Fillers which can include:
Most of these reactions can be avoidable or are temporary, yet if you experience long-lasting or concerning side effects, please contact our office immediately.
