Look Your Best With Dermal Fillers
Has your skin lost volume with age, resulting in sagging, folds, and hollows? Or do you have certain features like your cheeks or lips that could use a little boost? Fillers are injectable substances that can add volume to enhance certain features or restore youthful contours. Dr. Ablavsky offers dermal fillers from the JUVÉDERM® family at his San Antonio, TX, practice, and he personally performs injectable treatments to help women and men look their best.
Are Dermal Fillers Right for You?
Both women and men of varying ages can benefit from dermal fillers. Fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic are the world’s most popular nonsurgical aesthetic procedures because they create results that look natural when injections are performed by a skilled provider.
People who can benefit from filler injections are concerned about:
- Nasolabial folds framing the mouth
- Vertical marionette lines on the chin
- Hollow or flat cheeks
- Thin or wrinkled lips
Fillers can be used to enhance contours on virtually any part of the face. Patients who have firm, elastic skin get the best results from filler injections. If you’re skin is too saggy, a facelift or eyelid surgery might be more effective.
Fillers or BOTOX?
One of the questions patients often ask is whether they should get injections of fillers or BOTOX. The answer depends on what the patient wishes to accomplish. The injectable treatments address different concerns. Fillers such as JUVÉDERM®, which we use at our San Antonio practice, are smooth gels that work by adding volume to areas such as the cheeks and around the mouth. BOTOX, on the other hand, works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles that cause expression lines, such as crow’s feet, worry lines, and forehead wrinkles.
Depending on the patient’s goals, fillers and BOTOX can address an array of concerns.
Dr. Ablavsky is a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon whose patients trust him for beautiful, natural-looking results from face, breast, and body procedures. He listens closely to his patients' concerns and takes the time to answer their questions with honesty and compassion.Meet Dr. Ablavsky Request Your Consultation
