How do Dermal Fillers Work?
Just as their name implies, dermal "fillers" actually fill your skin. These products contain collagen and substances that plump your skin, so you're left with fewer signs of aging. Beaird Dermatology offers filler products such as Juvederm® and Restylane® which instantly smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Similar injectables including KybellaTM and Sculptra® also refine, define, and lift your skin. These products either contain hyaluronic acid to improve your skin's appearance and elasticity, or help destroy fat cells to achieve a more toned look. Because you have so many options for fillers and injectables, your dermatologist thoroughly covers all of your options, so you get the resu ts you expect during a cosmetic consultation.
Interested in Botulinum Injectables
Beaird Dermatology proudly offers Botox® and Dysport® botulinum injections, which gives you options for these types of treatments. Each time you smile, frown, or have any sort of facial expression, your facial muscles tense up and cause your skin to wrinkle. Over time, repeated expressions start causing permanent lines and wrinkles as your body naturally loses collagen.
Botulinum injections work by relaxing your facial muscles instantly. This smooths out your skin that 'gets stuck" in those positions after making repeated expressions. Botulinum injectables improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles:
• Around your mouth
• Across your forehead
• At the corners of your eyes (crow's feet)
• Between your eyes
Do Injectables Last For a Long Time?
Yes! Depending on which type of injectable works best for you -like a filler versus a botulinum injectable -you should expect to have long-lasting results. Some dermal injections last for several months, while others last close to a year.
During your consultation, your practitioner lets you know what you should expect from your specific type of injectable. Because it's safe to have injectables more than once, when they do wear off, you can get them again.
It's also common to mix injectable treatments. For example, you may need a filler around your lips, but opt for a botulinum treatment in your forehead. Fillers tend to last longer, so the area you had treated with a botulin um injection may require another treatment sooner.
Since many injectables provide immediate results, you can have visibly more youthful looking skin before you leave the office. Schedule your consultation today by calling, texting or using the on line booking feature.
