Aging can cause the face to lose laxity and volume, resulting in sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines. Dr. Decherd's San Antonio Center offers a variety of injectable fillers to help reduce the visible signs of aging. An injectable filler is a non-surgical procedure that adds volume under the skin to create a smoother, younger appearance. When combined with treatments such as BOTOX®, patients are able to experience a “liquid facelift” without surgery. Our day spa operates under the direct supervision of Dr. Decherd to ensure that each treatment is administered with the highest degree of safety and expertise. The various injectables can be discussed in detail during the consultation.

"CHOOSE DR. MICHAEL DECHERD.....ALWAYS!!!!! I wish I could give him 10 stars!!! Dr. Decherd is the best!!!! DO NOT be deceived by other surgeon reviews. Dr. Decherd amazingly fixed my problem that another well-known plastic surgeon in San Antonio botched on my hips/saddlebags. I wish I had known of Dr. Decherd and done more research way before I got misled by, Dr. A's reviews. Dr. A. had the audacity of wanting to charge me for his screw up AND wanted to do a thigh lift in the process, which I definitely do not need....NO THANKS. Dr. A. never admitted fault, which it obviously was. Dr. Dechard's results blew me out of the water and he is far more down to earth than the other plastic surgeon that I made the mistake of going to. I will ALWAYS go to Dr. Decherd. He made me look and feel more beautiful than ever. MICHAEL DECHERD ALL THE WAY!!!! Oh and if you're needing any fillers or Botox, nurse Julie at Decherd's office is AMAZING too!! Super sweet, understanding and she has the touch of an angel with a needle and syringe."- C.C. / Google / Apr 14, 2022

BOTOX is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily diminish moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. With minimal downtime, BOTOX delivers subtle yet powerful results that can help you look years younger.
BOTOX is probably one of the most popular nonsurgical facial cosmetic procedures in the U.S. today. It is used by both men and women to treat:
- Crow's feet
- Horizontal forehead furrows
- Vertical frown lines between the eyes
BOTOX can also be used to treat excessive sweating and assist with migraines.
If you have fullness under the chin (submental area) that you're unhappy with, Kybella may be right for you. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to reduce fat under the chin. More than one treatment may be needed to achieve your goals, but once the fat cells are destroyed and aestehtic goals are met, further treatment is not expected.
During/After the Procedure
Prior to treatment, the practitioner will assess various aspects of the face and make marks directly on the skin to note where the injection sites will be. The face will be cleansed and a local anesthetic will be applied to help numb the top layer of skin. Using a syringe with a fine needle, the filler will be injected into the marked areas until the desired fullness has been achieved. Most patients are pleased with their results. While this will vary by filler product, most will produce results lasting from 3 months to a full year.

Injectable Filler FAQ's
Are Fillers Safe?
All injectable fillers on the market today are FDA-approved and are safe to use. It is important to discuss the differences between each filler treatment to decide which is the best choice for your specific situation.
The results of each injectable filler treatment will vary. On average, most will last between 3 months and a full year. Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane are among some of the most common fillers and usually last 6 months or longer. Fat injections will last the shortest amount of time because a portion will reabsorb into the body within several months.
Fillers VS. BOTOX?
Injectable fillers help to decrease wrinkles by adding volume to smooth the skin’s surface. BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin offer a result that looks and acts similar, but with a different approach. These treatments use a neurotoxic agent injected into the skin to temporarily freeze overactive muscles causing wrinkles. When the muscles relax, the visible wrinkles on the outer layer of the skin relax and soften, resulting in a smoother, younger appearance.
