Injectables and dermal fillers keep Plano, Frisco, and Dallas faces youthful
As time passes, skin loses elasticity. Volume in the form of fat, hydration, muscle, and bone diminishes. Wrinkles and hollows develop. In the past, your only option to reverse the signs of aging was a face lift. That procedure is effective, but it carries the risks and recovery time of a surgery. Today, injectables and dermal fillers can be an ideal alternative to surgery for patients in the Plano, Dallas, and Frisco area.
Each time you squint, frown, or purse your lips, underlying muscles pull skin into folds. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are formulations of purified protein. They are injected at precise points just beneath the skin to interrupt muscle contractions, allowing wrinkles to soften. Neuromodulators are ideal for “elevens” between the eyes, horizontal forehead furrows, crow’s feet, and smoker’s lip lines.
These products add volume to fill hollows, reduce wrinkles, plump lips, and lift facial features. There are basically four types:
- Hyaluronic acid – Brand names like Juvéderm and Restylane have made smooth gel fillers household words. They add immediate volume, and HA attracts hydration for additional benefit.
- Poly-L-lactic acid – Sculptra Aesthetics stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen for firmer, smoother skin over the course of several treatments.
- CaHA microspheres – Radiesse is infused with tiny beads of biocompatible calcium. Results last a year or more.
- PMMA – Bellafill is a collagen-based filler with polymethylmethacrylate microspheres. It is cleared by the FDA for improvement in nasolabial folds and depressed acne scars. Results last up to five years.
