Do you want to turn back the clock on aging? You can restore your youthful appearance with dermal fillers, also called injectables. Our dermal fillersdermatologists at Southeast Dermatology in Pasadena and Houston, TX, offer a variety of powerful dermal fillers to meet our patients' individual needs. Read on to find out how dermal fillers could help you.

#1- Treat Acne Scars

While acne scars may fade over time, they often don't go away completely without help. Acne scars can be treated with certain dermal fillers. The best dermal fillers for treating acne scars are fillers made of hyaluronic acid such as Belotero, Juvederm, and Restylane. Dermal fillers fade acne scars by adding volume to them.

#2- Erase Facial Wrinkles

Injectables, like Restylane, Sculptra, and Juvederm, eliminate wrinkles by injecting hyaluronic acid into the face, adding structure and plumpness to the skin. Injectables will smooth wrinkles by replacing the collagen lost due to aging or skin damage. Most injectables will fill fine lines, hollows, and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from four months to more than one year. 

#3- Treat Smile Lines

Smile lines, also called nasolabial folds, are nothing to smile about. These creases and lines run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth, and are the result of skin elasticity and the loss of facial volume as we age. Dermal fillers smooth fine lines by filling in deep creases. For smile lines, you can opt for hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Radiesse, Scupltra, Juvederm, and Restylane.

#4- Plump Your Lips

Some people have thin lips and want to make them bigger. Other people have noticed their lips thinning over time. Your Pasadena and Houston dermatologist can also use dermal fillers to increase volume in your lips. Injectables can enhance the appearance of your lips by adding volume, shape, and structure. The effects typically last several months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.

#5- Enhance Your Cheeks

Fine lines and wrinkles aren't the only signs of aging. Over time, the skin may begin to sag and the cheeks flatten. This is caused by a loss of volume in the cheeks. Using a dermal filler, your dermatologist can enhance your cheeks without surgery. Dermal fillers add volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a youthful appearance.
