Patients in Plano, TX who visit DSA Dermatology to learn about the ways of reducing the unwanted signs of aging may find out there is a wide selection of injectables available through our practice. However, each injectable has unique advantages, and some work in different ways than others. A common consideration in our practice is Botox.
Botox is a neuromodulator. This medication has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use. It works by relaxing the muscles in which it is injected. This keeps these muscles from contracting and resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the upper third of the face—most noticeably above the eyebrows. Once Botox is injected, patients may notice within a week the visible improvements due to relaxation of these specific muscles around the eyes and forehead, which were contributing to the visible signs of aging.
Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, work a little differently than injectables such as Botox. These fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring protein that can attract water. They are injected into the problematic lines, wrinkles, and folds to add volume to the skin. The results are noticed immediately, allowing the dermatologist to provide accurate, precise improvements for patients.
Many patients want to consider both options, and this is a wonderful way for them to notice optimal results. Botox and dermal fillers can be used together for the ultimate “liquid face lift.” They provide both immediate and long-term results, and when patients maintain touch-up appointments, they can slow the signs of aging. Patients are encouraged to visit a dermatological team they can trust, such as those at DSA Dermatology in Plano, TX. Drs. Achtman and McConnell provide both men and women with the skin, hair, and nail solutions they require to look and feel their best.
