Fillers & Injectables
Injectable fillers are popular for a reason. They’re safe, non-invasive procedures that are easy to recover from and produce instant results that are better than surgery.
Refine Aesthetics is an Austin Med Spa that offers numerous different kinds of fillers so you can enjoy a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance. You can stop looking for dermal fillers near me, and learn more about the fillers and injectables offered by Refine Aesthetics in Austin.
How Do Injectable Fillers Work?
Injectable fillers are a substance that is injected under the skin to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. They can also be used to add volume to some areas of the face, creating pleasing contours and enhancing features. Most injectable fillers are made with naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. This substance, which already exists in your body, hangs on to hydration under the skin, which counteracts its loss in the aging process.
Fillers address many signs of aging including unwanted lines and wrinkles by smoothing out the skin for a more youthful look. They can also restore a loss of volume which can cause problems in areas like under the eye.
The increased volume that comes from injectable fillers can also help to enhance certain features, such as the lips, by giving them a plump, rejuvenated appearance. You’ll be able to achieve more symmetry, smoother skin, and reverse some of the most common signs of aging with safe and easy injectable fillers.
Your results are long-lasting but not permanent. Depending on which dermal filler product you choose, which area of the face you’re targeting and your own biology, the amount of time your results will last will vary. Hyaluronic acid fillers, generally speaking, last from 6 to 8 months depending on these variables.
What are the Benefits of Fillers?
There are many benefits to choosing fillers over other cosmetic procedures. First, your treatment will be quick and can be done in-office. Injectables are minimally invasive, unlike expensive surgical procedures, and you’ll be in and out of the office in no time at all. Injectables and dermal fillers require little to no downtime.
Most patients are back to daily life immediately after their procedure. Results can be visible right away and there is very little healing required, if any at all. You may experience slight tenderness or swelling, but outside of that, you’re good to go!
One of the best parts about choosing fillers is that they won’t break the bank. Getting injectables is a far more affordable cosmetic procedure than traditional plastic surgery, especially when you consider the fact that there is no downtime.
Which means no time off work and no need to arrange childcare. You’re in and out of your procedure the same day, with just a little bit of tenderness.
What Skin and Aging Issues Do Fillers Help Address?
Dermal fillers are known for their efficacy in reducing signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines, but these treatments offer patients so much more.
From plumping your lips to filling out areas that have lost volume, there are numerous benefits to getting injectable fillers. Here’s a quick list of some of the most common benefits patients experience after opting for dermal fillers:
- Filler injections can help fill in wrinkles and creases on the face.

- Rejuvenation injections can be used to add volume to lips and cheeks.

What Are the Types of Injectables and Dermal Fillers You Offer?
At Refine Aesthetics Med Spa in downtown Austin, we are happy to offer our patients several choices when it comes to dermal fillers. They are:
Each type of filler has strengths in certain areas, so your choice will depend on your biology, your goals, and the area you’re treating. To find out which product is your best choice for lip fillers, lower face fillers, and more, book a consultation with one of our professionals today.
Juvéderm® is a family of hyaluronic acid fillers that are available in different consistencies. Each of these consistencies makes it the perfect fit for certain applications. Juvéderm® is completely reversible, which means that if you’re dissatisfied with the results, the fillers can be removed. This type of filler can last for up to two years, depending on which one you choose.
After this period, it is absorbed back into the body naturally. A Juvéderm® treatment will last, on average, about half an hour. Slight facial swelling and redness may appear for 1-2 weeks but after that, you can expect natural-looking results.
Juvéderm® has different formulations specifically developed for specific uses. These formulations include Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Vollure.
- Juvederm Voluma is perfect for filling lip lines, smoothing out facial lines around your mouth and nose, and adding volume to your cheeks. Juvederm Volbella was designed to make lips appear fuller.
- Juvederm Ultra is designed to restore volume to areas where aging causes fine lines and wrinkles like the mouth, nose, eyes, forehead, chin, and cheeks.
- Juvederm Vollure was developed to smooth out parentheses lines around your mouth and nose.
Refine Aesthetics is proud to offer Juvederm, Austin, so book your complimentary consultation today!
Restylane is another safe and natural facial filler made using hyaluronic acid, however, this product differs from Juvederm in texture which gives it different strengths. Juvederm is a smoother product, while Restylane is slightly granular which enables it to stay in place better. This product also boasts mouldability, allowing your practitioner to create specific shapes with it.
Restylane® takes a little bit more time than Juvéderm® for results to appear, as Juvéderm®’s results are immediate while the results of Restylane® can take a day or so to appear. A Restylane® treatment lasts around half an hour with minimal pain and little to no recovery. Results last a similar amount of time as Juvéderm®.
The Restylane® line of products includes Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Kysse, and Restylane Refyne and Defyne.
- Restylane Silk has been developed as a lip filler.
- Restylane Lyft is great at adding volume to cheeks and smoothing our nasolabial folds.
- Restylane Kysse lip filler plumps the lip as well, but the formula is such that less product is required for the same results.
Restylane Refyne and Defyne is best used to address deeper, more severe wrinkles and folds.

Unlike Restylane® and Juvéderm®, Sculptra® is a synthetic facial filler that prompts your body to produce new collagen. When we lose collagen, which is the structure that gives our skin volume, wrinkles, folds, and fine lines appear. The new collagen can reverse those effects giving you natural-looking results.
Sculptra® can be injected into more than one area of the face at once, resulting in an all-over rejuvenation, leaving your skin younger-looking. Though results last up to two years, they may take longer to appear than hyaluronic acid fillers because Sculptra® induces collagen production.
While that production is ramping up, it could take a few weeks before the full results are visible. You may also need a few treatments to fully treat all of your skin concerns. Like the other fillers, however, there is little to no recovery time.
