Injectables – Facial Fillers

softeDid you know that Dr. Ayala uses Cannulas to inject fillers? While sharp tipped needles are rigid in nature, cannulas are a more flexible option as this means that they can move more freely and easily when delivering precise aesthetic enhancements.

Sharp needles require multiple entry points to deposit the chosen product in a bolus or linear fashion across a given area. Cannulas can be used through fewer entry points to deposit filler in a fan-like or matrix pattern

The images demonstrate the difference.

Although this may be an additional cost to the practice, Ayala ENT and Facial Plastic Surgery’s goal is to provide the absolute best patient experience before, during, and after your visit. Dr. Ayala uses only the best fillers, and the highest quality cannula in SoftFil, to achieve optimal results.


Bellafill is the only dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth long term to help maintain your youthful appearance for up to 5 years. Now, you can look your best without wasting time and money on frequent filler injections.

Restylane Silk

Everyone’s facial structure is different — and so is everyone’s ideal lip shape and size. Silk is designed to provide precise lip shaping and line control, resulting in silkier, smoother lips and natural-looking results. Find your ideal lip shape and talk with a doctor about howRestylane Silk can help you achieve the look you want.


The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. RestylaneSilk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products. Visit our top-rated clinic for cosmetic surgery in McAllen.

Restylane Lyft

Get UpLyfted

Natural-looking volume and definition for your cheeks.

Restylane® Lyft is now approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. This is in addition to treating moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).

What Is
Restylane Lyft?

As we age and our faces lose volume, some of us begin to look for ways to regain more definition in our cheeks without surgery. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face.

Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines(nasolabial folds).

How does Restylane Lyft Work?

Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.

What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.

Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body. This treatment does not require allergy testing, and therefore there is typically no waiting period necessary before the procedure. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® work by attaching its chemical components to the natural moisture of your body, ultimately rejuvenating the skin and smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Dr. Ayala will inject Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® in to the areas targeted for treatment with an ultra-fine needle. A topical anesthetic can be applied to the areas before injection to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® treatments usually take no longer than 30 minutes to complete, and only about 15 minutes in most cases. Newer formulations now have anesthetic in the product, resulting in immediate numbing once injected. The injection itself is helped by the topical “freeze”. Some patients also choose botox for a total makeover. Looking for Restylane doctors?  Visit Dr Ayala serving McAllen TX.

Although you can expect some temporary redness and swelling in the target areas after the procedure, most patients are able to resume normal daily routines immediately following Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® treatment. Individuals who are under the age of 18, pregnant, and/or breastfeeding should not undergo Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® treatment; however, Dr. Ayala can discuss other options that can offer similar benefits.


Dysport® is a new injectable treatment that offers many of the same benefits as BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dysport® is designed to reduce the appearance of frown lines, wrinkles, creases, and other signs of age. Also, partly composed of clostridium botulinum, this non-surgical aesthetic enhancement treatment works in much the same way as BOTOX® Cosmetic, temporarily preventing facial muscles in the areas targeted for treatment.

Injections of Dysport® are performed with a very fine needle. A topical anesthetic can be applied before the injections to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Dysport® treatments typically take no longer than 15 to 30 minutes to complete, and can be performed over your lunch hour.

Although there will be some temporary swelling and redness after Dysport® treatment, you should be able to return to your normal daily routine immediately. Of course, anytime a needle is used, however fine, bruising is a possibility. This is minimized by avoiding aspirin and

non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (eg. Ibuprophen) for 1 week prior and 2 days after injection, when possible. Results are often the most apparent about one week after treatment, and typically last three to four months. Once the effects of Dysport® begin to fade, you can keep the results going with occasional “touch-up” treatments.
