As we get older, our skin slowly begins to lose elasticity and volume. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to take the place of the beautiful, smooth, and firm skin of our youth. Before we know it, what started out as a few laugh lines has turned into a reflection in the mirror that we are no longer happy with. At DSA Dermatology in Plano, TX, we have a wide range of dermatology services available to rejuvenate your skin and improve the physical signs of aging.
As our skin ages, regrowth of new skin cells and collagen slows. As collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down, it causes the skin to lose support. The result is lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Facial expressions such as laughing, smiling, and frowning all cause the muscles of the face to contract. After decades of these contractions, the muscles no longer fully relax, causing the creases to become permanent fixtures on the face.
Wrinkles can also be caused by environment and lifestyle factors. Repeated exposure to UV light from being out in the sun destroys skin tissue and rapidly ages skin. Smoking can also speed up the aging process. Nicotine in cigarettes affects blood flow to the outer layers of skin by shrinking blood vessels. The skin is deprived of nutrients and therefore, it becomes less supple. Chemicals in tobacco also damage the collagen network, leading to premature wrinkling or sagging. Unhealthy living habits such as stress, pollution, poor diet, and excessive drug or alcohol use can also cause premature aging of the skin.
At DSA Dermatology, we offer a variety of dermal fillers and other injectables to address the signs of aging. Dermal fillers like Radiesse, Restylane, and Juvéderm can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, restore volume, and rejuvenate the skin. Other services such as peels, lasers, and medical grade anti-aging products can also kick start collagen regeneration to a more youthful level. .Our team will work with you to help you decide which dermal filler or other services are best for your unique situation. You can also feel confident and secure that you will receive your evaluation and services by an experienced medical doctor.
It is never too late to improve your skin. Call our Plano office today to learn about dermal fillers and our other dermatology services available for total skin rejuvenation.
