Addressing the signs of aging is often on top of the list for many patients who are visiting with a dermatological team. Fine lines and wrinkles developing on the face can have a negative impact on one’s appearance, especially when they want to maintain their youthful look. While the signs of aging are unavoidable, they can be improved with treatments available at our dermatological practice. Additionally, patients with more severe skin laxity may be a good match for a facelift via a plastic surgeon. However, most patients with mild to moderate signs of facial aging are good candidates for treatments such as dermal fillers in the Plano area.
Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell of DSA Dermatology in the Plano community are committed to providing a wide range of services to patients who are interested in cosmetic treatments that can be used in achieving a more youthful appearance. One of these common services is that of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are safe, effective ways to address facial aging in a more temporary manner.
Dermal fillers are a popular method patients use to address facial aging without having to undergo plastic surgery. Dermal fillers may include brands such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse. These are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a safe and useful protein that is naturally occurring in the skin and known for attracting water. When this gel is administered into the fine lines and wrinkles of the face, it immediately fills them and reduces their depth and appearance. The results achieved from dermal fillers can last several months before reinjection is needed, since the gel will naturally be absorbed by the skin.
Dermal fillers are also used in conjunction with neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport which can relax muscles in the facial area. When combined, patients will notice amazing improvement in their facial aging and enjoy what we like to call a “liquid face lift.” Many patients are great candidates for this and may love to achieve even better results with a combination of injectables at DSA Dermatology.
