As you age, the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and repeated facial muscle movements crease your face with laugh lines, crow’s feet, or a network of facial wrinkles. The soft tissue of your face that provides that youthful volume and contour can begin to sag, crease, losing its resilient, youthful quality. These issues can leave you feeling self-conscious, uncomfortable, and dissatisfied with your appearance.

Smooth away the years with injectables

At Hill Country Plastic Surgery, we offer several non-surgical options, including wrinkle-smoothing fillers and neuromodulators such as BOTOX®. Dr. Farber or Dr. Shah will collaborate closely with you to restore a youthful appearance to your face while ensuring the result is not overdone, and you look natural, able to maintain your natural facial expressions.

Why choose Hill Country Plastic Surgery for injectables?

The beauty of the results of injections with filler or neuromodulators such as BOTOX is in the hands behind the needle.

At Hill Country Plastic Surgery, we perform precision injections, focusing on achieving a smooth, youthful look that does not look frozen or unnatural.

Our surgeons are among the most highly trained in the region and the country and have a breadth of knowledge regarding facial anatomy that makes all the difference in the beauty of the results. We are committed to the highest level of personal service and care. We are honored to be known as the premier clinic for injectables in the San Antonio area.

BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin: Smooth away dynamic wrinkles

Neuromodulators (BOTOX®, Dysport®, Xeomin®) are used to treat dynamic wrinkles of the face. These wrinkles are caused by facial muscles that are continually moving when you are smiling, frowning, laughing, and talking. Neuromodulators can help to smooth out these dynamic wrinkles, giving you a more youthful, very refreshed and more youthful appearance.

Dermal fillers Restore lost volume or create a lusher, more attractive look.

Dermal fillers are very popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments for facial rejuvenation and restoration of lost facial volume.

From softening fine lines and wrinkles, to improving fullness and filling in scars, these products can help you achieve a more youthful look. Dermal fillers can be injected for:

  • Plumper lips
  • Fill in lines and creases
  • Restore or create cheek volume
  • Restore lost volume at the temples
  • Fill in under-eye hollows
  • Create more volume at the chin or jawline
  • Correct minor nose imperfections (non-surgical rhinoplasty)

How do neuromodulators work?

Neuromodulators such as BOTOX® and other brands work by weakening specifically targeted facial muscles, preventing the action of neurotransmitters on the muscle. The active ingredient in BOTOX prevents or limits the muscle from constant contractions, which eventually etches wrinkles and creases into the overlying skin. Neuromodulators create a temporary smoothing effect, typically lasting from three to five months. It takes three to five days to enjoy the full effect of your injections.

Where can neuromodulators help improve your appearance?

  • Smooths lines in the glabella (area between the eyebrows)
  • Smooths horizontal forehead wrinkles
  • Smooths crow’s feet (lines on the outer portion of the eyelids)
  • Smooths chin creases, dimples, and creases
  • Lift the downward movement of a nasal tip that appears when smiling or talking
    Treats a gummy smile
  • Treats masseter hypertrophy (overly large, square jaw muscle development)
  • Treats hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

What are fillers?

As we age, loss of collagen, elastin, and the soft tissues in your face leads to skin sagging, wrinkling, and overall volume loss, and a hollowed, gaunt, or tired look. Selecting the right amount and type of dermal filler can help rejuvenate your appearance without looking overdone, leaving you looking restored, refreshed and healthy.

Soft tissue fillers are also known as dermal fillers. The main goal of fillers is to restore lost volume and smooth facial wrinkles. Most dermal fillers are made with a main ingredient called hyaluronic acid or HA, which occurs naturally in the body. HA bonds to water in the skin to provide hydration and volume. As we age, the soft tissues of the face atrophy (thinning, diminishing), which contributes to the hollowed facial look associated with aging. When hyaluronic acid is injected into the soft tissue of the face or hands, volume is restored, leaving you with a very fresh, revitalized, youthful look that is distinctly you – not overdone. 

What can fillers do?

  • Smooth smile lines
  • Smooth nasolabial folds (creases from nose to sides of mouth)
  • Smooth laugh lines
  • Smooth marionette lines (from mouth corners onto chin)
  • Restore volume to under-eye hollows 
  • Cheekbone filler can redefine mid-face contours, restoring volume
  • Correct minor nose shape issues with a “liquid rhinoplasty”
  • Improve the fullness and lush shape of the lips
  • Enhance lip “Cupid’s bow”
  • Smooth vertical lip lines
  • Improve volume in a small chin
  • Improve jawline definition

Natural looking lip fillers can enhance the delicate shape of the mouth and can really improve your facial appearance, regardless of age.

Types of dermal fillers:

Juvéderm® and Restylane®

There are different options in the Juvéderm® and Restylane® filler lines, all of which are made from hyaluronic acid. These dermal fillers can be used to treat wrinkles around the mouth, vertical lines above the upper lip (perioral), hollowed cheeks and temples, thinning lips, and deep folds and lines near your nose and mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). The Restylane line can also rejuvenate the look of aging hands, plumping them to look fresh, smooth, and youthful. Ask Dr. Farber or Dr. Shah which of these will work best for you.

Teoxane RHA®

Teoxane RHA® is the newest dermal filler in the United States and the first and only FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler indicated for treating dynamic (caused by facial motions) facial wrinkles and lines. Teoxane RHA® addresses the signs of aging we see in the face such as wrinkles, volume loss, and loss of definition. It is used to provide volume and smooth the wrinkles created by constant facial motions. It is designed to be resilient and flexible enough to adapt to your facial movements. Fewer chemical modifications are made during manufacturing, which helps preserve the natural structure of the hyaluronic acid, allowing it to more closely mimic the natural HA found in your skin. A designer filler, RHA injections create a very natural looking and feeling filler that moves with you.

You should not massage the face and should avoid compression (including headbands and hats) to the areas injected. You also should not lie down and avoid strenuous activities which increase heart rate or blood pressure for a few hours after injection to decrease chances of bruising.
