One of the effects of aging is a loss of volume in your face, which can leave you with sunken cheeks, deep folds, and thinning lips. As part of their aesthetic services, Integrative Primary Care offers dermal fillers to restore youthful fullness to your face. Under the guidance of Dr. Syed Farhat Zaidi and Dr. Imran Baig, the team helps their Houston and Katy, Texas, area patients look their best with cosmetic injectables.

As you age, your skin undergoes considerable changes as it succumbs to wear-and-tear and exposure over the years. Not helping matters is the fact that your skin naturally loses its structural support — namely collagen and elastin — making keeping your skin healthy an uphill battle.
As if these forces weren’t enough to contend with, you also begin to lose the thin layer of fat underneath your skin, which can leave your cheeks hollow as the fat migrates downward into your jowls. Your nasolabial folds also begin to deepen as fat exits, and your lips can thin.
With dermal fillers, the team at Integrative Primary Care restores volume to these areas, drawing your skin back up and restoring a more youthful roundness to your face.
To bring back volume to your face, the aesthetic team at Integrative Primary Care turns to two products:
If your lips are thinning with age, or they’re just naturally thin, Juvéderm Ultra XC is designed to bring fullness to your lips and your perioral area (which is the tissue that surrounds your mouth). Juvéderm relies on hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your body, so your tissue readily accepts the injections.
For those deep parentheses lines that surround your mouth, or your nasolabial folds, Belotero works by filling in these areas with hyaluronic acid to restore volume and structure.
One of the biggest advantages of cosmetic injectables is that your results are immediate. Once the doctors at Integrative Primary Care finish their injections, which usually take under an hour, you walk out with a more youthful face.
Everyone is different, but most patients enjoy 6-12 months of restored (or new) volume with Juvéderm and Belotero. When your results begin to fade, you simply return for a follow-up treatment.
