Injectable Fillers Reviews
"Emily the nurse practitioner who performs the fillers is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! She's very meticulous, detailed, gentle, and kind. Emily is very patient and really listens to your concerns. She injects slowly and takes the time for you to look into the mirror before she injects more. Very careful and listens. You will not be dissapointed when you get Emily to make yourself more beautiful. She is really that talented!!"- P.S. / Google / Mar 24, 2021
"I can’t say enough good things about this place and about Emily! She is a wizard with fillers! After much thinking, I decided to get my lips and marionette lines treated with filler. The entire process was smooth and painless. Emily was very thorough and caring. She explained exactly what she was going to do to achieve the results I was looking for. I can’t stop smiling- I have lips again! The end result looks amazing and natural! If you are looking to get fillers done, look no further. Call and book an appointment with Emily!"- A.L. / Yelp / Apr 02, 2021
"I have seen Nurse Practitioner Emily Taylor at Austin-Weston several times and with each appointment she went over my expectations and treatment options to help me reach my goal. I have had both Botox and dermal fillers with her which have left my face looking more rejuvenated, well rested and more importantly very natural. During our appointments she has had excellent attention to detail, took her time and never seemed rushed. I am so happy that I decided to go to Emily at Austin Weston and look forward to future appointments"- M.P. / Google / Apr 29, 2021
"Update 4/29/2021: Just adding to this as I was back with Emily for more filler and Botox. She continues to do an amazing job every time! She has done an incredible job on my lips over the last couple years and has really shaped them out and created a look I never thought I would achieve (being that my natural lips are so thin they are almost nonexistent). This time she also did some cheek filler -- my first time doing this -- and I'm absolutely thrilled with the results. She's got such an eye for this stuff. It's to the point where I don't even necessarily need to say what I want -- I simply let her look at my face, and I go with her recommendations, as they are always spot-on. I'm almost 40 and people tell me I look 25.... it's all thanks to this girl. I have posted a review for AWC and Dr. Sigal before -- but this one is specifically for Emily Taylor, the nurse practitioner who does much of the injectables (Botox, filler, etc). Emily is so amazing! I saw her yesterday for Botox and also filler in my lips. Botox is pretty straighforward -- I appreciate her quickness with it, because it's multiple shots and she's fast and accurate and it's over in a second (I don't mind needles but for those who do, go to her! It will be over before you know it's happening). And her expertise and perfectionism gave me the most amazing lips EVER! She offered a dental block if I thought I needed it, but I did not elect to do that -- even without it, she's gentle and was always checking to see how I was doing and if I needed a break. You can tell how much of a perfectionist she is, as she works to get every millimeter just right. I am so super happy with the results. This was probably the easiest experience I have had with lip filler without a dental block. Also, she is just such a sweet and kind person. She is a pleasure to be around and makes you feel as if you've known her forever. Emily gets my highest recommendation!"- R.L. / Google / Apr 29, 2021
"I’ve been a client at Austin Weston since 2019. I used to get my Botox and fillers done at another place in DC. When I went for another procedure, Dr. Weston noticed that my fillers weren’t done correctly. I started going to him for my Botox and fillers and he began making me look so much better. One time he was not available, and I want to go see Emily Taylor. I love Dr. Weston but Emily is also amazing. She is a beauty expert. She’s very skilled and she’s always doing continuing education to make sure she is abreast of the latest information on the science of making us look beautiful. She has an awesome personality, listens and will be very clear about what you do and don’t need. I completely trust her. I’m also an esthetician, so I really appreciate her expertise from that perspective. Botox and filler is definitely a science and she has it down pat."- K.M. / Yelp / Jun 15, 2021
What are the Benefits of Injectable Fillers?
Plastic surgery is not always ideal for everyone. It can be expensive, time-consuming, and sometimes even risky. Injectable dermal fillers provide people with a viable alternative to going under the knife. The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers many kinds of dermal fillers to achieve custom results that look and feel great. Our fillers plump lips, fill in fine lines and wrinkles, augment the cheekbones, and even improve the appearance of scars. Read about the types of dermal fillers we offer below and see which one is best for your needs.
Types of Fillers
Our injectable fillers provide amazing results but they are all different and offer varying outcomes. Cosmetic fillers are temporary and if patients want to maintain optimal results, multiple treatments will be necessary. Some fillers like hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are also reversible and can be dissolved. Below are some of the injectable fillers we offer at Austin-Weston:
Juvéderm XC: An HA gel that is FDA-approved, Juvéderm is recommended for correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles, deep frown lines, and folds around the nose and mouth. Results usually last 6 – 9 months. It is used throughout the face including the lips.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus: An HA filler that also contains lidocaine. This option is slightly more plumping that XC and can last longer than 9 months. It is used in similar areas of the face.
Juvéderm Voluma: This HA filler treats age-related volume loss in the mid-face, providing a smooth, natural-looking lift and restoring a youthful contour to the cheek area. Results have been known to last up to two years. This product is typically used along the bony areas of the face like the cheek bones.
Volbella: The first FDA-approved filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to one year with optimal treatment. We also use this filler in other areas of the face including under the eyes in the 'tear troughs.'
Vollure: Another HA gel filler in the Juvéderm family for the treatment of laugh and marionette lines with results lasting up to 18 months.
Radiesse: An FDA-approved synthetic dermal filler that reduces wrinkles by stimulating the body to produce new collagen. Unlike other dermal fillers, Radiesse also stimulates your body to produce new collagen, so you’ll continue to look more youthful and attractive over time. This filler is not an HA and thus not reversible.
Restylane Lyft: This HA filler is used to augment cheeks for a more full cheekbone area that lifts the lower face.
Restylane Defyne and Refyne: These fillers are used around the mouth to erase lines. These are HA fillers.
Belotero: Specifically designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for a smooth look that is uniquely you. Results last for 4 – 6 months and this is a reversible agent.
Bellafill: A dermal filler that is used to address nasolabial folders or smile lines. Bellafill offers long-lasting results that have been known to last up to five years. For long-lasting results, the filler must be injected in 4-5 concurrent sessions and it is not reversible.
Kybella: While not a filler, Kybella is an injectible used to melt fat beneath the chin. This is usually done in several sessions spaced out by 4-6 weeks.
What to Expect
Cosmetic injectables, or dermal fillers, are injected just under the surface of the skin to achieve natural-looking results. During your initial consultation, one of our practitioners will have you make a series of facial expressions to determine the points of injection. Your results will vary depending on the type of injectable you receive. However, the most common side effects are mild redness and/or swelling. Bruising is also possible on a case by case basis.

Injectable Fillers FAQ
How much do injectable fillers cost?
Costs for an injectable filler treatment will vary depending on the brand used and how much is needed. In your consultation, your injector will develop a treatment plan that matches your concerns and goals. After this, your injector will also provide you with an estimated cost and discuss any specials we have.
How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
The injectable filler used for your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your desired outcome. Depending on whether you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or are wanting to get plumper lips, we will listen to your goals before recommending the best filler for optimal results. With so many dermal fillers available, it can be difficult to decide which is ideal for you, which is why our team of aesthetic professionals helps to ensure you experience a natural-looking, rejuvenated look.
What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
A wrinkle relaxer, like BOTOX®, treats fine lines and wrinkles (particularly in the forehead and around the eyes) by limiting the movement of the underlying muscles. Injectable fillers restore volume to the face in order to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and some scars. Injectable fillers may also be used to add more volume to your cheeks and lips plus to reduce the appearance of aging on the hands.
How long will the results last?
The longevity of your results will be dependent on what brand(s) is used and what area was treated. For some patients, improvements may be visible up to a year, whereas others might need another treatment after a few months. Touch-up injections can be scheduled at our practice in order to sustain your improvements.
What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Wrinkle fillers can improve signs of aging by either smoothing static lines or adding volume. Fillers can be injected into mild to moderate parentheses, marionette, and corner lines around your mouth and nose. Also, they can restore volume to your cheeks and lips.
If you are interested in restoring volume in your face or improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, call Austin-Weston today. Our plastic surgeons will personally sit down with you to discuss which cosmetic filler is best for you.
