Injectable fillers—also known as dermal or facial fillers—are a great option for instantly filling in and smoothing away various signs of aging. Dr. Hernandez recommends fillers for men and women who want to replenish volume in their face to restore a naturally youthful look.
As we get older, our skin begins to lose essential substances that keep it looking smooth, taut, and healthy. This decrease in collagen, elastin, and fat can lead to problems such as fine lines and wrinkles, facial folds, and gaunt or hollow areas.
Dr. Hernandez uses injectable wrinkle fillers to restore volume and reshape the face’s youthful contours. These non-surgical treatments work by instantly adding volume beneath the skin, creating an even surface and smoothing away imperfections. During your consultation, Dr. Hernandez will carefully analyze your condition to recommend a filler treatment that will be right for you.
We currently offer the following wrinkle fillers at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio.
Juvéderm continues to be one of the most popular dermal fillers available today. Formulated with naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm can help to improve the appearance of those pesky parentheses (nasolabial folds) that develop around the corners of the nose and mouth. Results from Juvéderm typically last 6-12 months.
Like Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus, Voluma is formulated using hyaluronic acid. Voluma is an incredible volumizing filler that is best for restoring lost volume to the cheeks to achieve a natural-looking fullness and even a subtle lift. Results from Voluma can last for up to two full years with professional treatment from Dr. Hernandez.
Restylane and Restylane Lyft are clear-gel hyaluronic acid fillers used for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane and Restylane Lyft are best for improving signs of aging in the mid to lower face, or for restoring fullness to the cheeks. Results from Restylane and Restylane Lyft often last for up to a full year.
Using the above products, Dr. Hernandez also performs the following specialized filler procedures.
Dr. Hernandez can create a custom combination of non-surgical fillers and injectables to perform a liquid facelift. Each liquid facelift is fully personalized to the unique needs of each individual patient in order to treat various signs of aging in different areas of the face. An example of a liquid facelift may include a combination of Botox® and Juvéderm to erase crow’s feet while restoring lost facial volume. With her years of experience and artistic background, Dr. Hernandez is able to achieve beautiful outcomes that can fade lines and wrinkles while providing a youthful lift—all without a single incision being made.
Fillers can be used for the non-surgical enhancement of thinning lips. Dr. Hernandez can create a natural-looking fullness for the lips by carefully injecting the right amount of Juvéderm or Restylane into the lips. A lip augmentation with dermal fillers can help to give patients the voluminous pout and gorgeous smile they desire.
