If you’re like us, there’s probably one thing you’ve been doing a lot more lately: video chats! These days, we’ve got Zoom meetings at work, Hangouts with friends, video dating, virtual school, church, holiday parties, concerts, happy hours, baby showers, seminars, and anything else you can think of.
During this increased time in front of a camera, we bet you’re checking yourself out and studying your face every day. How do you feel about your appearance? Do you notice you constantly have to crane your neck, suck in your cheeks, mess with the lighting, apply makeup, or sit at a certain angle to hide some features you’re unhappy with?
If you’re ready to stop worrying about your facial features, you’re in good company! Many men and women in the Houston area come to Medical Aesthetics & Laser in The Woodlands seeking non-surgical facial contouring options to sculpt and contour their face and neck. With treatments like jawline, lip, cheek, and chin fillers, we can rejuvenate your appearance and help you look your best—on and off screen!
Dermal fillers are purified preparations of hyaluronic acid (HA) that we expertly/artfully inject into the face and other areas to plump and lift the skin to smooth wrinkles and create a more youthful facial contour.
HA is a substance naturally found in your skin. Together with collagen (AKA “the beauty protein”), HA acts as your skin’s natural volumizer, cushioning the cells and playing an essential role in moisture retention.
At Medical Aesthetics & Laser, we offer non-surgical facial contouring with HA fillers from the JUVÉDERM® family, including Juvéderm XC, Juvéderm Volbella® XC, Juvéderm Vollure XC, and Juvéderm Voluma™ XC. Depending on your exact goals and placement of the fillers, our aestheticians will help you identify the best brand for the best results
Radiesse® is another filler composed of a thicker gel with suspended microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a biocompatible substance that’s also found in bones. When patients want dramatic results that mimic the effects of an implant (for the chin, cheekbones, etc.), we recommend Radiesse injections.
On average, HA fillers can last 6 to 12+ months before you may need another injection to maintain the results. Radiesse does not require additional injections for at least 2 years, as the thicker product dissolves slower and the CaHA spheres stimulate collagen production for long-lasting results.
When injected by a skilled expert and in moderation, fillers produce gorgeous, natural-looking results.
At MAL, we use fillers to:
The best news about fillers? Unlike a permanent surgical augmentation, they’re temporary! If the results don’t satisfy you, you can rest easy knowing that we can dissolve the filler or you can wait until your body reabsorbs the product over time.
So if you’re considering a surgical procedure, you may want to try fillers before you commit to make sure you will be happy with the way you look after surgery.

Thanks to the increased need for video calls day-to-day, many people have noticed areas on their face and neck that could use some improvement.
Besides facial symmetry, the most conventionally attractive faces have wide jawlines and strong chins (for men) or high cheekbones, sharp jawlines, narrow noses, and defined, proportional chins (for women).
If you don’t want a jawline enhancement surgery, fillers are an amazing non-surgical option to achieve similar results. The quick, minimally invasive injection process gently contours the area around the chin and the angles of the jaw with HA gel filler.
Our clients leave our office with an improved jawline that will continue to improve over the next two weeks as the filler integrates into the soft tissue and swelling subsides. Results can last 9 to 18 months before requiring another treatment to maintain the effects.
A small volume of chin filler can make an enormous improvement in your overall appearance. After your consultation with a Medical Aesthetics & Laser injection specialist, you will receive a customized plan to give you the strong chin and balanced features you’ve always wanted.
Using Radiesse or chin fillers from the JUVÉDERM® line, we can effectively perform a non-surgical chin augmentation at our office in The Woodlands. Besides a more attractive chin and improved facial proportions, our clients appreciate a more defined jawline and improved neck contour for 9 to 18 months!
While makeup tricks can help your face appear more contoured, all bets are off when your skin is bare. Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up to the naturally lifted, defined cheekbones you work so hard to create in the mirror?
Thanks to their expertise, our injectors can strategically place fillers to make your cheekbones pop and help you put down the palette. Adding this balance and volume to the midface makes you appear years younger, corrects jowls, and can make you appear less “hollow” for about 9 to 18 months before requiring another injection.
The best nose shapes are the ones that go mostly unnoticed. When the nose’s size or shape is not in harmony with the rest of the face, it can be a source of distress for men and women. The latest aesthetic advancements allow us to provide non-surgical rhinoplasty effects using fillers!
During your consultation with our experienced injectors, we will create a unique plan tailored to give your nose an improved shape. The effects of a non-surgical rhinoplasty are immediate and can last 8 to 14 months.
UNDER EYE FILLERS
Hollow, dark under eye areas can affect the overall appearance of the face, making you look tired or older than you really are. Dark under eye shadows and puffy “bags” are often the result of genetics, and even the most luxurious eye creams are powerless to fight them.
Tear trough correction with under eye fillers is an amazing non-surgical facial contouring solution for a tired and aged appearance. After a quick, in-office injection appointment, clients leave looking better rested and more youthful. Clients can usually enjoy the effects of under eye fillers for about 12 months before another appointment is needed.
Have you noticed your lips are disappearing? Would you like to have fuller, more inviting lips? If lip liner and lipstick no longer do the trick, it’s time to talk to the experts at Medical Aesthetics & Laser about lip injections in The Woodlands.
Our lip fillers use HA that’s already found in your skin to temporarily create the appearance of fuller, youthful-looking lips. With quick, in-office injections every 6 to 9 months, you can achieve the perfect pout you’re after! (And…not to worry, we don’t like the “duck lip” look either!)
Whether it’s paired with jaw or chin fillers, or used alone, Kybella works wonders to eliminate the appearance of a double chin!
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable which uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid (naturally found in the digestive system) to kill fat cells in the submental area and help patients reduce or eliminate a double chin.
Excess submental fat, or double chins, can result from aging, weight fluctuations, or even genetics. Many find that a double chin is difficult (if not impossible) to eliminate with diet and exercise alone. Kybella is an amazing non-surgical solution that helps our clients achieve a much more flattering profile after a series of 3 to 6 treatments.
You can see Kybella results over the course of 6 to 8 weeks post-injection. We space your appointments for Kybella 5 to 6 weeks apart, and you can expect to receive at least 2 treatments before seeing the full results of the injections.
With 12 to 20 small injections per visit, patients can see results that last for years, with little to no need for touch-up treatments. When we eliminate the fat cells, they will not return. However, the fat cells that remain can still expand with weight gain, so it is important to keep up a healthy diet and exercise routine following Kybella injections.
