Dermal fillers and injectables are best-suited to those individuals who desire facial rejuvenation without the commitment of plastic surgery. When administered by an experienced professional, these products can soften the face very subtly, producing a youthful vibrancy. Dr. Guyuron offers a range of injectables and dermal fillers to meet the skincare needs of a diverse group of patients.
In addition, the use of high-quality, physician-grade skin care products and skin resurfacing procedures in combination with injectables and dermal fillers will enhance and extend the results. Shawn Guyuron is an aesthetician with Zeeba Clinic and works closely with Dr. Bahman Guyuron. She has comprehensive experience in skin care and facial skin resurfacing.

- Anesthetic may not be required
- Can be administered in-office (as opposed to a surgical facility)
Dr. Guyuron evaluates each patient’s facial skin and assesses his or her needs before selecting the best treatment option. His recommendations will be based on factors like the skin’s condition, any areas of sun damage, the thickness of the facial muscles and the patient’s age.
Dermal fillers and other injectables such as Botox can be combined with each other or with a plastic surgery procedure, such as rhinoplasty (nose surgery) or eyelid lift, based on the patient’s desired outcome.
Dermal fillers are used in several different applications. As the name would suggest, they fill small or large, deep lines and wrinkles.Dermal fillers will not replace surgical tightening treatments.
Juvederm, for example, is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that maintains the moisture of the skin. As the body ages, the production of hyaluronic acid diminishes, causing loss of volume, lines and wrinkles. Juvederm replaces the hyaluronic acid to reverse the side effects.
In addition to treating frown lines and wrinkles around the face, Juvederm may be injected into areas that look “sunken,” such as the cheeks. Fillers can also be used to plump the lips and fill in skin depressions and scars.
Several dermal fillers trigger the body’s natural production of collagen, which improves the quality of the skin over time.
Injectable products such as Botox are commonly used to relax facial muscles, thereby smoothing and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses that cause the muscles to contract and cause wrinkles. Botox effectively reduces the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, creases along the forehead and even vertical bands across the neck. Other applications include treatment of migraines, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
The effects of dermal fillers and injectables will eventually wear off, so repeat treatment is recommended.
