Dermal Fillers in Houston, TX

Dermal Fillers

As we age, we lose volume in our skin. This loss of volume leads to either a sagging appearance of the face, fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and thin lips. Fortunately, dermal fillers, also known as cosmetic fillers, can help to rejuvenate our look by restoring lost volume. These injectable treatments can smooth out wrinkles, plump up thin lips, and give the face a youthful, vibrant appearance.

At Bellaire Dermatology in Houston, TX, we are pleased to offer our patients the option of dermal fillers. We work with patients to personalize a treatment plan that meets their goals and needs, ensuring beautiful, natural-looking results. Whether you’re seeking to address the signs of aging or enhance your natural beauty, dermal fillers can provide a safe, effective solution.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that restore volume, smooth out wrinkles, and refine facial contours. The treatment involves carefully injecting a gel-like substance into specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, and under the eyes.

These fillers are composed of safe and biocompatible materials, such as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is found naturally throughout the body. Injectable HA reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds to create structure and framework and add volume to the face and lips.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Quick Treatment

Dermal filler treatments are typically quick and convenient, often taking less than an hour to complete. This makes them an excellent option for those with busy lifestyles, as you can achieve noticeable results without significant downtime.

Minimal Discomfort

Dermal filler injections are typically well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort during the treatment. We utilize advanced techniques and, if needed, apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment.

Immediate Results

One of the most satisfying aspects of dermal fillers is their immediate results. You can see the improvements right after the injections, with the full effects becoming more apparent as any initial swelling subsides.

Types of Fillers

Juvederm and Restylane are two brands of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers we offer at Bellaire Dermatology in Houston, Texas.

Juvederm Ultra XC

Ultra temporarily adds more fullness and plumps lips. Ultra can also help correct and smooth moderate to severe parentheses lines, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the nose and mouth).

Juvederm Ultra Plus XC

Ultra Plus is a thicker version of Ultra and is used to correct more severe facial wrinkles, deep nasolabial folds (smile lines around the nose and mouth), and marionette lines (lines around the mouth to the jawline).

Juvederm Voluma

Juvederm Voluma is typically injected into the mid-face and provides volume, lift, and contour to the cheek area.

Juvederm Vollure

Vollure is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, including around the nose and mouth.

Juvederm Volbella

Volbella is injected into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines”.


Restylane is typically used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the nose and mouth).

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is a HA filler that temporarily adds volume to the cheeks and hands for a smoother and fuller appearance.

Restylane Refyne

Restylane Lyft is a HA filler that temporarily adds volume to the cheeks and hands for a smoother and fuller appearance.

Restylane Defyne

Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines).


Sculptra is not an HA filler; it is a collagen stimulator. It doesn’t produce immediate results. Instead, it stimulates your body’s collagen production, so results appear gradually over a few months. Patients typically need about three monthly treatments to achieve desired results. It can take 4-6 weeks to see the full results. Sculptra is considered semi-permanent, however, you may still need occasional touch-ups.


Radiesse is another type of filler, it is a collagen stimulator. It stimulates the body’s process of generating collagen, encourages growth, and is used in both the face and hands for a more refreshed appearance.

RHA 2, 3 & 4

Revance’s RHA 2, 3, & 4 are the newest dermal fillers used to treat moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. RHA’s unique hyaluronic acid manufacturing process allows it to resemble our body’s natural hyaluronic acid. This filler can last up to 15 months.


Bellafill is a semi-permanent filler that is most often used to treat medium-to-deep wrinkles and folds. It can also be used to fill out pitted acne scars.
