Dermal Fillers - San Antonio, Texas
BOTOX® Cosmetic can help reduce the appearance of newly formed wrinkles, and potentially slow the progress of future wrinkles. However, it does have its limitations when it comes to eliminating deep wrinkles and folds that have developed over time. Simple smoothing and relaxing of the skin will not affect deep wrinkles and folds. Fortunately, there is an effective alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic in the form of dermal fillers. At Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A. of San Antonio, we provide dermal fillers for patients who are looking to minimize the appearance of deep wrinkles and age lines in the face. Dermal fillers may also be used to accentuate the contours of the face and enhance the lips, without the need for invasive surgery. During a personal consultation with plastic surgeon Sheryl Pilcher, she can help you determine whether treatment with dermal fillers is right for you.
Dermal Fillers Injection
At Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A., with the assistance of our highly trained medical aesthetician, we have helped many patients achieve their desired results through the use of dermal fillers. Treatment with dermal fillers requires only a single visit to our San Antonio practice. Depending on the case, the procedure consists of one to several injections throughout the affected areas of the face. Based on the depth of the injection and the type of filler being used, even long-established wrinkles can vanish. Dermal fillers can be either synthetic or natural, taken from the patient or a donor. Different fillers offer different benefits, and once you contact us, Dr. Pilcher will be able to further explain the procedure and address any questions or concerns you may have during a personal consultation. The injections take a matter of minutes, requiring no anesthesia, and results are often apparent almost immediately after treatment. Dermal fillers are not a permanent solution; however, results typically last anywhere from three months to a year. Treatments can be repeated as necessary, so results are sustainable with routine injections.
