Dermal Fillers

One of the major hallmarks of beautiful, healthy skin is the appearance of youthful volume. Facial volume gives the face a lifted, firm contour in our youth. As we age, however, facial fat begins to diminish and the face takes on a hollowed, gaunt look. Additionally, skin gets thinner and fine lines and wrinkles become more visible.

At Personique in Austin, TX, we strive to provide our patients with the best Dermal Filler results in town. If you are interested in seeing what this treatment can do for you, we encourage you to keep reading to learn more about this popular facial enhancement.

Dermal Fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under your skin to create a smoother or fuller appearance or both if desired. It uses Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a natural substance found in all mammals that helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. Many recipients of Dermal Fillers are looking to plumpen thin lips, enhance their shallow contours, improve creases and wrinkles, and so much more.

At Personique, we offer several different Dermal Filler treatments that can help with the early signs of aging or enhance the effects of other facial rejuvenation surgeries.

  • Almost immediate results
  • Can boost your confidence
  • Easily combined with other treatments
  • Increases collagen and elastin production
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimal risk involved
  • Reduces the appearance of scars
  • Subtle but effective results
  • Zero recovery time

Who are the Best Candidates for DERMAL FILLERS?

Good candidates for Dermal Fillers should also have one or more of the following concerns they are looking to treat:

  • A receding chin
  • Deep nose-to-mouth lines
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Minor nose deformities
  • Sunken or thinning cheeks caused by volume loss
  • Thin or unevenly shaped lips

If you are interested in receiving Dermal FIllers, you should also have the following characteristics:

  • Committed to maintaining good skin health
  • Nonsmoker
  • Physically healthy
  • Positive in your outlook and have realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance


If you are in the Austin area and are interested in getting Dermal Fillers, the first step is to schedule your consultation. During this appointment, you will meet with your technician, discuss any concerns you have and what you are looking to achieve from this treatment, and get an evaluation of the targeted area. Your technician will also go over your medical history, during which time you need to be open and honest with them. Everything is kept under full disclosure but your clarity allows the technician to make an informed treatment plan with the least possibility for unnecessary risks.

After your technician discusses their plan and you agree with them, you may receive your Dermal Fillers right then or you can reschedule with our Patient Coordinator for a better time.



After having your consultation with one of our certified technicians, they will begin by cleansing your face and applying either a cold compress to your skin, an anesthetic ointment to numb your skin, or giving you an injection of local anesthesia so you have a more comfortable experience. Some temporary markings may be made that will guide the injector to strategic areas where the filler will be injected.

The injection only takes a few minutes per site, but consists of injecting an appropriate amount of HA filler into the selected sites, then a gentle massage to lightly disperse the gel. The technician will assess your appearance and only add more if necessary.

After all the targeted areas have been filled, you may be asked to wait around for 10 – 20 minutes to make sure you don’t have an allergic reaction to the filler. Once it appears that you are OK, you are free to go about your day.


After you receive your filler, you should be able to return to your normal activities, but you should be careful during the first 24 – 48 hours to avoid swelling or bruising, so we recommend avoiding any intense physical activity. Recovery time varies between patients and for each type of filler injected. You can expect your initial appearance after any dermal filler to include:

  • An “overfilled” appearance in the treated areas
  • Hypersensitive reaction (may include hives and/or swelling)
  • Lumps or hard areas at the injection sites
  • Swelling or bruising ranging from mild to severe
  • Temporary numbness or redness

Most conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and massage and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days. Some reactions may require more aggressive treatment with medications or injections.

Although not common, visual disturbances may occur. When accompanied by pain or weakness on one side of your body, you must contact our office and receive care immediately.

When your fat is then injected with filler, the healing process is longer and may take a few weeks. Get more information about fat injections.



Belotero Balance is an injectable filler unique for its ability to uniformly assimilate into the skin’s existing sub-dermal structure, providing soft and subtle results. This versatile product has been FDA-approved and can be used for both deep nasolabial folds and more delicate areas, including fine lines above the lip line and to fill hollows below the eyes. This hyaluronic acid formula helps add volume to your existing facial contours and also hydrates the skin, creating a more vibrant and brighter complexion.

This procedure is very similar to any Dermal FIller treatment. When you come in, the targeted area will be cleansed and the technician will use a syringe with the hyaluronic acid and inject it in strategic locations. They will lightly spread the filler around, injecting more when needed. They will allow for the filler to sit for a bit to ensure that both of you are satisfied with the outcome.

A Belotero Balance treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish.


When facial volume begins to collapse, injectable fillers can step in to replenish lost volume and restore a look of youthful vitality to the skin. One of the treatment options offered at Personique® in Austin is Juvederm injections. This FDA-approved, hyaluronic acid injectable filler is used to lift the facial structure and fill the folds around the mouth (nasolabial folds). The injectable gel flows easily into the skin to create a smooth, natural look and feel, providing long-lasting correction to add volume to facial tissue and restore a smoother appearance. It is often frequently used to smoothen moderate to severe “laugh lines” from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth

The procedure is performed by one of Personique®’s board-certified plastic surgeons who injects the hyaluronic acid filler into the skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in the treatment area.

The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes after the initial consultation.


For those looking to get rid of wrinkles, folds and some scars around the mouth, Radiesse treatments (formerly called Radiance) are extremely effective. Patients who undergo Radiesse in Austin are typically 35 – 65 years old and often see up to 80% improvement just one week after treatment. Radiesse is highly sought-after by both men and women in Austin seeking a smoother, softer, and more youthful complexion, free of the unsightly wrinkles and creases that form around the nose and mouth as a result of aging.

Injectable Radiesse is a biocompatible, non-toxic, and non-allergenic filler. Most patients can be treated in the comfort of their plastic surgeon’s office using local anesthetic and an antiseptic solution.

The filler is injected under the skin at the treatment site(s) by a board-certified plastic surgeon, the whole process can be completed in as little as 15 minutes after your initial consultation. Though patients are advised to avoid sun exposure, they may resume normal activity immediately after their appointment. Some patients may experience minimal bruising and/or swelling for up to 36 hours after Radiesse treatment.

Radiesse has a broad range of uses and can treat a variety of issues, including:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Smile lines
  • Oral commissures
  • marionette lines

Radiesse can also be used as a form of nonsurgical rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of the nose by filling in nasal imperfections. Radiesse results are longer-lasting than most other dermal fillers so it is often used to fill in hollow cheeks and reshape and contour other facial features such as the chin and jawline. This volumizing filler can also be used to plump up aging hands. Over time, the skin on the back of the hands becomes thinner and the subcutaneous layer of fat also begins to disappear, giving the hands a bony and veined appearance. Radiesse can be used to rejuvenate and restore a look of youthful volume to the hands.



The cost for Dermal Fillers in Austin will vary on a multitude of factors, such as which type of filler you are receiving, the amount being injected, and the location of the injections. When you come in for your consultation, your knowledgeable and experienced technician will be able to create a treatment plan customized to meet your needs and you will be provided with a pricing sheet so you know exactly how much your dermal filler will be.
