Injectables and Dermal Fillers in Houston
As we age, we tend to have common issues including facial wrinkles, creases and folds, thin or flat lips, and hollow areas under the eyes, temples and cheeks. Luckily, there is now a wide range of injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers available to instantly reverse the signs of aging; even giving us the option of doing a non-invasive “liquid facelift”.
These non-surgical treatments work in a multitude of ways to provide volume and lift to targeted problematic areas – smoothing out fine wrinkles and lines, plumping up flat lips, and correcting hollow deep areas such as the temples. Today’s advanced injectables at MD Aesthetica have the power to provide complete facial rejuvenation, giving patients a more fresh and youthful appearance.

Neuromuscular toxins are used for smoothing deep, persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time from movement. These injectables are created from a family of neurotoxins that prevent nerve signals in muscles from causing contracting; they relax the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles enough to smooth the area. The positive effects of treatment by neuromuscular-based injectables usually lasts between 3 and 6 months depending on the power of the muscle and how much it is used.
Dermal Fillers in Houston
Dermal fillers are another dependable trusted option for treating wrinkles and hollow areas associated with facial aging. Today, there are many different types of dermal fillers to choose from:
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based dermal fillers
The most popular and widely injected class of dermal fillers is based on Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a sugar found naturally in human skin responsible for wide variety of functions. By binding water molecules together, Hyaluronic Acid based products magnify in size when injected and add volume under the skin to smooth wrinkles and folds, plump lips, and remove scars. The effects of dermal fillers usually last between 6 and 12 months.
Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic and is used to correct shallow to deep nasolabial folds (i.e., smile lines), contour deficiencies, and other facial wrinkles in a unique and powerful manner. Sculptra functions by both filling in lines and wrinkles and by uniquely stimulating the body to produce new collagen and underlying tissue, thereby creating a fuller, more youthful appearance.
Kybella at MD Aesthetica is the first and only non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA for treating fullness under the chin (double chin). Kybella causes the rapid destruction and absorption of fat, leaving a firm jawline without the necessary recovery time of other treatments like liposuction or neck lift surgery.
Use of Injectables to Correct Medical Issues
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a medical condition that involves hyperactive sweat glands. Sweat is the body’s temperature regulator. In severe cases of primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements. Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis often goes undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and untreated due to lack of awareness in the general population. Botox can treat hyperhidrosis by blocking the nerves that stimulate sweat glands at MD Aesthetica.
Varicose and Spider Veins
It is reported that 80 million Americans suffer from symptoms related to unsightly, painful varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy can be performed safely and effectively to eliminate the veins at MD Aesthetica by Dr.Lyos.
