Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers not only restore any lost volume, but it also adds definition and soften lines on the face. Instant results with little downtime, this is why this treatment is so popular among cosmetic dermatology. Some dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural occurring substance in the skin that helps retain moisture.

Others contain particles that produce quicker results as well as prompting your body to make new collagen. Central Austin Dermatology & Aesthetics providers will be able to assist you on which solution is the right choice for you.

This is the only place that I know of that you can be told that you have cancer, and be at peace about it – Courtney Scarmado and staff are that nice. Sounds weird, since getting bad news is never good. They are professional, and know all about skin and its care. Added bonus: after you get your face frozen off, you can walk over to Milk and Cookies and feel so much better!

I’ve been a patient at Central Austin Derm for many many years, and specifically a patient of Shirien for many of those years. I never feel like she is in a rush, even if she is having a busy day. She explains what she is doing, listens to what concerns me, and is warmly professional.
