About Injectables & Dermal Fillers
When it comes to selecting an anti-aging treatment that quickly and effectively eliminates wrinkles and fine lines, it is hard to argue against the use of Facial Fillers. Cosmetic fillers (like Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse) offer a very effective way to instantly fill and plump the skin, making it smooth and wrinkle-free.
While the results may vary from individual to individual, Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse are among the most significant injectable dermal filler treatments available in the health and beauty marketplace today for removing wrinkles and creases in the skin.

Our experienced injectors will provide an individualized and custom treatment plan for your needs.
"overdue five star review for Vanessa and the friendly staff. Incredibly satisfied with my procedure done by the talented Vanessa Bennington. I loved how informative she was during my entire visit but still made me feel completely comfortable to ask any questions or concerns that I had. I left feeling so beautiful and happy!!! We did some botox and two syringes (one voluma, one juvederm) to help enhance my cheeks, lips and chin. It’s been nearly 7 months and I’m still happy with my results. I may be due for my second treatment of botox but that’s expected. I wouldn’t even waste anymore time, look no further. Highly recommend her!!!"- C.L. / Yelp / Sep 03, 2021

"Vanessa is the most talented injectionist!!! She is an absolute artist. Trust me ladies if you are considering treating yourself to a little refresher she is THE person you want to see! I’ve been seeing her for over a year now and couldn’t be happier! She is extremely knowledgeable and will be honest with you regarding the best treatment options."- K.T. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"I love Dr. Hicks & her staff. She took the time to listen to me and really tried to help me. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. I've already recommended them to my friends... and I've left my former cosmetic/dermatology group...and no going back!"- A.M. / Google / Jul 30, 2021
"Dr. Hix-Hernandez and her medical team were absolutely amazing. I recently had a BBL with lipo done and the experience was seamless and everyone was so attentive to my needs. I chose Beleza per a family member’s recommendation and after tons of research. It is so important to stress to ensure you do research and select and board certified plastic surgeon if doing a BBL. Dr. Hix-Hernandez had the credentials and experience I was seeking in a surgeon. I will absolutely recommend Beleza as they were also extremely prompt and professional from beginning to end. Sincerely, A very happy patient 🍑🍑"- M.M. / Google / Jul 24, 2021
JUVEDERM 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 and ideal for plumping lips and filling small lines and areas. The body breaks them down over time and they lose their effectiveness. They can be used anywhere in the face including under the eyes and lips.
KYBELLA – DEOXYCHOLIC ACID
Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin, where deoxycholic acid is able to destroy fat cells, 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 much thicker consistency than the hyaluronic acid fillers. The gel part of Radiesse gives immediate results, but the calcium particles stimulate new collagen production by the skin! So Radiesse is better for deeper lines and heavier volume restoration. It cannot be used in the lips.
SCULPTRA – POLY-L-LACTIC ACID
Sculptra provides youthful looks by helping your body produce new collagen and underlying tissue. This leads to creating a fuller and youthful appearance. They can be used for nasolabial folds, contour deficiencies, such as cheeks, and other wrinkles. We also are able to use Sculptra for a non-invasive Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).
WHAT CAN I EXPECT BEFORE AND AFTER A DERMAL FILLER PROCEDURE?
We will prep your skin with topical anesthetic and alcohol. We will then use small needles to make several injections in the desired areas. We have new techniques using blunt microcannulas that can minimize the number of needle sticks needed. Most of the fillers now have lidocaine included in the filler, so as we inject you are being numbed at the same time! Afterwards, you may experience swelling and occasional bruising. These side effects resolve in a few days. Most fillers can last from 6 months to more than a year. Studies have shown that regular facial filler use causes formation of new collagen, the building block of skin!
WHAT DO DERMAL FILLERS COST?
Facial fillers are priced per syringe. It is a fixed price and includes the expert injection of the filler. The good thing is that we have many specials and discounts to get the amount of filler you need, within your budget.
CHEEK FILLERS AND UNDER THE EYE FILLERS
Our philosophy regarding dermal fillers has changed significantly over the years. Once relegated to just filling smile lines and other wrinkles, the concept of facial volume restoration has evolved. We now know the loss of facial volume in the cheeks, temples, etc., contributes more to the aged look than lines and wrinkles. So we now focus on restoring youthful facial volume by placing fillers under the eyes, cheeks and lips. The new Juvederm Voluma was developed specifically as a cheek filler and offers superior results and longevity.
