What are dermal fillers?
When it comes to reducing signs of aging, it's hard to argue against the use of dermal fillers. Cosmetic fillers instantly fill and plump the skin, making your complexion smooth and wrinkle-free. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez and the anti-aging professionals at Beleza Surgery are excited to offer popular products like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and RADIESSE® in Cedar Park, TX. We believe these are among the most effective dermal filler treatments available in the health and beauty marketplace for removing wrinkles and creases in the skin. Call to schedule your next appointment and learn how we produce gorgeous results with injectables.
What are my options for injectables?
JUVÉDERM AND RESTYLANE – HYALURONIC ACID (HA) BASED DERMAL FILLERS
These fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a natural building block of the skin. They are very soft and gel-like, which is ideal for plumping lips and filling small lines. The body breaks them down over time, and they lose their effectiveness. HA fillers can be used almost anywhere in the face, including under the eyes and lips.
KYBELLA® – DEOXYCHOLIC ACID
KYBELLA is made from deoxycholic acid. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, the fat cells are destroyed, leading to a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells are no longer able to store or accumulate fat.
RADIESSE – CALCIUM-BASED MICROSPHERES
RADIESSE is a synthetic filler consisting of tiny calcium spheres in a gel base. It has a much thicker consistency than hyaluronic acid fillers. The gel provides immediate results, but the calcium particles stimulate new collagen production by the skin! RADIESSE is better for deeper lines and heavy volume restoration. It cannot be used on the lips.
SCULPTRA® – POLY-L-LACTIC ACID
Sculptra provides youthful looks by helping your body produce new collagen. This leads to creating a fuller and more youthful appearance. It can be used for nasolabial folds, contour deficiencies, such as cheeks, and other wrinkles. We also use Sculptra for a non-invasive Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).
Injectables and Dermal Fillers Reviews
"If you’re planning on getting lip filler, I have one word for you: VANESSA. She is a true artist and is so passionate about what she does. I saw her for my first time getting lip filler a few years ago (amazing) then sadly moved to CA. I didn’t find any injectors there that even came close to how amazing her work is, so I literally made a trip back to Austin just to get it done by her again and she did not disappoint! I will not see anyone else for filler from now on because of the two great experiences I’ve had with her at Beleza Spa! I feel so much more confident and seen, highly recommend."- S.P. / Google / Jun 20, 2022

We use advanced techniques to minimize the number of needle sticks needed. Most dermal fillers now have lidocaine included, so you should feel comfortable and at ease during the process.
What happens after getting dermal fillers?
After your dermal filler session, you may experience some swelling and occasional bruising. These side effects are mild and should resolve after a few days.
