INJECTABLES & DERMAL FILLERS
Injectables and Fillers
Under the direction of Dr. Candice DeMattia, SKIN 101 offers various injectable filler options to achieve a revitalized appearance at our professional practice in Spring, Texas. Our health providers will recommend the best product or products that are best suited for you to help you achieve your desired result.
As we age the face skin loses volume which can make the face look hollow. To restore youthfulness, dermal fillers are injected into the face. Fillers are used for the treatment of wrinkles and folds as well as lip plumping. At SKIN 101 we can employ fillers to treat nasolabial folds (parenthesis around the mouth), marionette lines (the lines just below the corners of the lips), cheeks, tear troughs (dark under-eye circles).
Injectables are generally referred to as “liquid facelift.”. Generally speaking, they are office-based procedures, easy to administer, long-lasting, and affordable. No one product is perfect, and many times, products can and should be used together to achieve the best results. As with all cosmetic procedures, results are a direct reflection of the injectable and the injector’s technique. Be cautious, all injectable products carry some risk.
RESTYLANE®, RESTYLANE LYFT, RESTYLANE KYSSE AND RESTYLANE SILK
Restylane® restores volume and fullness to the lips and skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Silk replaces the lost hyaluronic acid and reduces the appearance of very fine lines and wrinkles.
Refyne is a Restylane filler that uses XpresHAn Technology, which is designed to give a more youthful, smooth skin appearance while maintaining control of your natural facial expressions. While some facial treatments freeze facial muscles or make ordinary facial expressions more difficult, Refyne is particularly effective at helping to restore a more natural look when treating moderate to severe facial lines such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Also relying on XpresHAn Technology, Restylane Defyne is designed for use in your nasolabial lines, between your nose and mouth, and marionette lines, from the corners of your mouth to your chin. While Defyne is just as effective as Refyne, each one is more suitable for certain applications due to the particular muscle and skin movements of each area.

About Your Injectable Dermal Filler
At SKIN 101, our dermal filler treatments for both men and women take about 30-45 minutes to administer, after which the patients return to their normal daily routines. Some of our patients need no further treatments after the first injections and other patients will elect to return in several weeks. The filler is eventually absorbed harmlessly by the body because each product is composed of natural ingredients. Results are immediate and can be fine tuned on the spot as required. Benefits of injectable fillers include:
No pre-testing is required
Most people experience no side effects
