Before and Afters

*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.

Surgeons at the Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery offer Injectable solutions for men and women in Austin & Sunset Valley, TX. Dermal fillers are a temporary solution, and while they can deliver excellent results, they will require routine touch-ups in order to maintain the naturally young and rested look they offer. Dermal fillers may be used as the only anti-aging therapy or as an addition to other non-invasive treatments or surgical procedures. The following links will provide additional information about each of the products available at the Buckingham Center.

As people age, they begin noticing facial imperfections, such as wrinkles and fine lines. These are the most noticeable aging signs when looking in the mirror, but they may also see other changes as well, such as a decrease in volume in the cheeks and under the eyes.

Dermal fillers may be used in addition to other non-invasive or surgical treatments.

The facial changes that develop as we age do not always reflect our inner vitality. Nonetheless, with aesthetic treatments, people are rejuvenating their faces to appear more vibrant.

While cosmetic surgery is one way to restore the youthful appearance of the face and deliver long-lasting results, not everyone is interested in the more invasive approaches. A popular alternative is injectables. Muscle-relaxing injectables, such as BOTOX and dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM, are injected into the soft tissue of the face in areas that can benefit from smoother skin texture and/or added volume. There are many facial enhancement options, each of which offers its own benefits.

INJECTABLE FILLER OPTIONS AT BUCKINGHAM CENTER

BOTOX

BOTOX is a popular wrinkle treatment comprised of a natural, purified protein produced by botulinum bacterium. Over 11 million patients have safely received injections of very low doses in the muscles of the face that cause unwanted wrinkles from repetitive contraction, such as frown lines. Within days, the lines are temporarily smoothed, and the face looks naturally relaxed. Results can last for up to 6 months.

BELOTERO

Belotero is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. HA attracts moisture to the skin and adds youthful volume. Belotero restores the appearance of the face after wrinkles and lines have begun to develop as production of hyaluronic acid diminishes. This filler is ideal for superficial lines around the mouth and nose. Results typically last for up to 6 months.

DYSPORT

Similar to BOTOX, Dysport is a second product composed of botulinum toxin. Dysport temporarily paralyzes the muscles of the face used to frown or squint, eliminating the wrinkles formed by these actions. Patients look younger and happier after treatments with HA fillers. Maintenance treatments typically take place every 3 to 6 months. Dysport is an alternative to BOTOX and may be used in men and women who have built a resistance to BOTOX.

FROWN LINES

Frown lines are formed by lax skin and/or the repetitive use of certain muscles in the brow region. These lines become more noticeable as people age. The furrows between the eyebrows can be treated in several ways, depending on the severity and cause of the lines.

Treatment options for frown lines depend on the cause and severity of the furrows. At Buckingham Center, each patient receives an individually tailored treatment plan that specifically addresses his or her concerns. For some patients, minimally invasive options like BOTOX therapy are sufficient to soften the scowling appearance of the overactive brow muscle. In addition, younger patients are increasingly seeking this minimally invasive therapy to rejuvenate their look or to prevent aging.

Deeper wrinkles may require injectable soft tissue fillers, such as Restylane or Radiesse in order to achieve the best cosmetic outcome. Other patients who have significant brow droop may be better served with brow lift surgery. The surgeons at Buckingham Center can employ a combination of methods to correct the complex nature of frown lines.

To determine if an individual is a good candidate for this procedure, our surgeons recommend a private patient consultation.

JUVÉDERM

Wrinkles caused by aging skin, overactive muscle use, and sun exposure are aptly treated with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM. JUVÉDERM is a non-animal based clear gel filler comprised of a substance natural to the body. Injections result in the immediate improvement of facial lines, the lips and other areas of the face that have lost volume or areas that the patient would just like to be fuller. Results may remain for up to one year.

RADIESSE

Deep facial wrinkles may be corrected with Radiesse, a dermal filler comprised of calcium hydroxyapatite. This substance is naturally found in teeth and bone. Radiesse is used for a variety of purposes. For example, it may be injected into soft tissue to help build collagen in a desired area. Radiesse is long-lasting, averaging about 18 months, and it is often used to address deep creases, nasolabial folds, marionette and frown lines, as well as to add fullness to facial contours.

RESTYLANE LYFT

As we age, our faces lose volume. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L, is a dermal hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face.

RESTYLANE SILK

The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging. This often results in lip thinning, loss of shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed for meticulously precise lip definition and line control for the silkier, smoother lips you’ve been looking for.

VOLBELLA

JUVÉDERM Volbella is an injectable filler consisting of HA. Volbella can improve the contour, volume, symmetry and vertical creases (i.e., smoker’s lines) that develop above the lips. Volbella can also be used to lift other areas of the face (e.g., crow’s feet).

VOLUMA

Over time, your face changes in many ways. This is part of the normal aging process, but genetics and environmental factors can also play a role. JUVÉDERM Voluma XC is the first FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area in people over the age of 21.

Frown Lines Questions & Answers

Is there any filler that can be used to improve marionette lines, lip lines, and other superficial facial wrinkles?

Hyaluronic acid fillers are the only ones that we inject into the lips. HA fillers are also very good at marionette lines as well as other superficial wrinkles.

Is it better to use different facial fillers for different problems?

While you can use other fillers for areas other than lips, it is not necessarily better. We usually utilize Juvederm, Restylane or Restylane Lyft for all the areas.

What facial filler is recommended for a longer result?

We might recommend Radiesse if the patient desires a longer result.
