Our skin loses volume and firmness as we age, which can lead to Crow’s feet, laugh lines, and other common signs of aging in the mid-to-lower face. Dermal fillers are a fast and easy way to restore lost volume and appear years younger.
Dermal fillers can smooth away lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips, and add volume to hollow features. Below, Dr. Tatiana Sorkin and the aesthetic professionals at Beauty Medica will explore the different types of fillers available and how they can meet your cosmetic goals in Houston, TX.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers are made of different materials, including collagen, poly-L-lactic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres, and hyaluronic acid (HA). Many of these substances naturally occur in our bodies and play an important role in keeping our skin looking and feeling young. For example, HA is vital for maintaining the firmness and elasticity of your skin.
When injected into the skin, dermal fillers provide volume to correct wrinkles, hollow areas, and deep folds. The process is typically painless and takes approximately 15 minutes. Your aesthetic treatment can last for months or years, depending on the type of dermal filler and the amount used.
How do you choose the right dermal filler?
Choosing a dermal filler depends on factors, like the type of wrinkles you wish to correct, your desired results, and any sensitivities or allergies you may have. Beauty Medica will provide a comprehensive skin consultation and help decide which filler is best for you in Houston.
Selecting the right dermal fillers may seem overwhelming, but rest assured we’re always here to help. Dr. Sorkin is proud to offer a wide range of aesthetic treatments for patients who want to reduce common signs of aging and refresh their skin:
Sculptra®: addresses the nasolabial folds (also called laugh lines) that start outside the nose and run to the outer corners of the mouth
JUVÉDERM®: corrects age-related volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face

How long will my youthful results last?
Most dermal filler products last between 6 – 12 months or longer. However, there are several factors that impact how quickly results wear away after aesthetic treatment. Your age and skin quality, the type of filler chosen, and the amount of product used all determine the length of your results. Our team members at Beauty Medica can help you maintain your outcomes for as long as possible through basic at-home care and consistent maintenance treatments at our facility.
