The effects of stress and aging take a toll on your skin. These effects commonly include crow’s feet, laugh lines, and frown lines. When these telltale signs of growing older make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, North Texas Plastic Surgery can help you freshen up your look with no downtime with injectables treatments at our Dallas office.
The effects of these injectables will vary since they target different types of wrinkles, such as dynamic or static wrinkles. Therefore, it is important to consult with a nurse or aesthetician in order to discuss your cosmetic concerns, ideal treatment results, and the differences between the different products we provide. If you live in the Dallas, Southlake, Plano, or Fort Worth areas and would like to achieve a healthy, youthful look without surgery, give us a call today to discuss treatments such as BOTOX®, Jeuveau™ or dermal fillers.
Aging skin forms wrinkles, fine lines, folds, and sagging areas due to declining collagen and elastin production, resulting in decreased volume. But we can rejuvenate the skin by restoring volume for a tighter, firmer, and smoother appearance. In addition, the treatments are an excellent option for preventing the development and worsening of wrinkles and loose skin.
Both BOTOX® and dermal fillers help to reduce wrinkles, but they work differently. BOTOX® is a toxin that minimizes the appearance of wrinkles by blocking muscle activity. When a muscle doesn’t contract, it doesn’t affect the skin to form wrinkles.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, fill spaces in different skin layers, correcting wrinkles by leveling the skin’s surface from beneath the epidermis. Injectable treatments can fill wrinkles, soften creases and give flat, thin lips more volume.
Dynamic facial wrinkles form due to repetitive facial movements, such as smiling, frowning, squinting, and smoking. Injectable treatments for these wrinkles include Botox and Dysport injections, which reduce the signals between facial muscles. After treatment, the muscle movements that usually cause specific wrinkle types will minimize, allowing the skin above to smoothen out.
However, many patients worry that injectables for dynamic wrinkles will stop muscle movements completely. In fact, the injectable treatment reduces only some of the nerve signals between muscles, so facial movement should not be substantially affected. Typically, Botox results last between three and four months, while Dysport injections could work for up to five months.
Dermal filler injections for patients in Southlake reduce loose skin and wrinkles by restoring volume underneath the skin, typically with gel-like materials. For instance, dermal fillers injections offer several varieties to enhance lip size, plump the cheeks, and reduce wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Possible treatment choices could include Juvederm (including the Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, and Voluma varieties), Restylane, and Sculptra, which use hyaluronic acid-based gel material.
Dermal fillers utilize hyaluronic acid because the substance is primarily responsible for maintaining the skin’s moisture and is safely absorbed over time. In addition to reducing aging signs and tightening the skin, dermal filler injections could stimulate collagen production for naturally healthier and firmer skin. However, in most cases, the effects of dermal fillers are visible for up to two years and require additional injections to maintain results.
Injectable treatments we provide in Plano and our other facilities have non-invasive body contouring options that reduce minimal amounts of excess fat. For example, Kybella injections contain an acid to reduce excess fat underneath the chin that is responsible for a double chin appearance. However, the results will vary based on individual lifestyle habits, exercise routines, and body composition.
In addition, QWO injections could reduce the appearance of cellulite on the thighs, which results from tightened collagen fibers and localized fat pockets. These injections work by breaking down the affected collagen to release the excess pulling on the skin, which is the primary source of cellulite skin dimpling.
We offer several choices for reducing wrinkles and loose skin caused by a combination of several factors, including aging and environmental irritants. Primarily, injectable treatments in Dallas include neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and body contouring injections for treating different cosmetic concerns. However, since each type of injection targets a different cosmetic issue, you could combine treatments for the best possible results. You know better than anyone what you are looking for, so it is important to schedule a consultation to identify your cosmetic goals and determine the best method for achieving your desired look.
