It is not uncommon for men and women to visit a dermatologist in the Plano, TX area to learn about ways to address the signs of aging. When wrinkle removal is a concern, Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell of DSA Dermatology may suggest the advantages of using dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are injectables that have been used for many years for cosmetic enhancement. They can take many years off the face without the need for surgery. Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell can help patients choose the injectables right for them. While many may benefit from dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, etc.), others may be better suited for neuromodulators such as Botox or Dysport. Our dedicated team of professionals can assist patients in choosing the treatment right for them.
Dermal fillers that we use are completely safe and FDA approved. They are fabricated as a gel using hyaluronic acid which is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that attracts water. When injected directly into the area of concern, it can dramatically reduce the depth of the fine lines and wrinkles and make them far less noticeable. When injections are used, they can improve the appearance for up to a year, depending on the formula used. Patients can maintain the results with regular injections over time to gradually slow the signs of aging. The more you use dermal fillers, the less often you will need to use them. After using a dermal filler a few times your body begins to generate collagen in the area of the filler as it dissolves the filler, making the filler to appear to last longer.
Many patients love the ease of dermal fillers. They do not require any downtime, can be done quickly in the dermatologist’s office during a lunch break, and can provide noticeable, attractive results. Dr. Achtman administers injections to ensure safety and desired results. We can also educate patients on other injectables used in our practice, as well as ways to combine them for overall facial enhancement. We like to call this a “liquid face lift” when using multiple injections on the face for improvement.
Dermal fillers are popular for patients with mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles who want to achieve a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery. Contact the team of DSA Dermatology to learn about the advantages dermal fillers can provide and discuss which one may be best suited for enhancement based on specific needs and desires.
