With his extensive experience and unique aesthetic eye, Dr. Arroyo’s goal with dermal fillers is to restore volume and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles to give his patients that refreshed, youthful look they’re looking for. Dr. Arroyo understands that different people’s needs are unique and goes out of his way to create a customized treatment plan for each patient.
Dermal fillers vs Botox
BOTOX and dermal fillers are similar in that they are both designed to make you look more vibrant and youthful. However, there are specific differences in how these approaches work. BOTOX is a protein-based substance that works by relaxing and facial muscles to loosen folds, wrinkles, and lines. It may take several BOTOX injections before you can start seeing results. On the other hand, dermal fillers are purified substances that are injected below the skin to add lost volume, plump up the skin, and promote collagen production. Patients can see results almost immediately after a dermal filler treatment and will only need another injection after the current one has worn off.
Is the treatment safe?
Dermal fillers are a popular choice for minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. Dr. Arroyo makes sure to use FDA-approved fillers whose safety is above board. He will also take the time to administer the treatment in the most appropriate locations to ensure a pleasing, balanced outcome. Keep in mind that filler injections should only be administered in a medical setting by a skilled professional.
Can dermal fillers be removed?
Some dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Belotero, and Restylane based on hyaluronic acid may be dissolved (at least to some degree) if you are not entirely happy with the outcome of the treatment. This typically entails injecting an enzyme known as hyaluronidase to dissolve the existing dermal filler. It is vital to work with a highly experienced plastic surgeon or injection specialist to minimize the risk of unpleasant outcomes with this treatment.
How much will the treatment cost?
The cost of an injectable filler in Houston can vary between $500 to $6000, depending on the extensiveness of the treatment. Get in touch with Dr. Arroyo’s office to learn how much you can expect to pay for this treatment.
