Injectables are changing how we age

Plump lips, smooth skin, full cheeks — some women are born with these traits while others need a little help, especially as we age. Individuals in their 30s or 40s looking for an anti-aging solution can turn to dermal fillers for help. Dermal fillers are not just used by celebrities but have become an anti-aging solution for just about anyone. Today’s dermal fillers are made to be long-lasting and designed to give subtle results. Dermal fillers are a safe cosmetic option, and with the experts at ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, TX, patients can look amazing. 


Filling you in on dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are derived from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in our bodies. Fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® contain hyaluronic acid to plump up the skin and make it look rehydrated. Topical creams and serums can’t restore lost volume to the skin’s surface, but temporary dermal fillers can. Some aesthetic fillers even stimulate the body to naturally increase collagen and hyaluronic acid production, which helps individuals defy the aging process.


Filler treatment and prevention

According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, plastic surgeons are seeing an increase in patients under 30 getting injectable treatments like dermal fillers, and starting young may have its benefits. Results show that individuals who start small by treating certain areas early are aging differently than those that don’t. Dermal filler prevention help can keep future wrinkles at bay, especially when combined with BOTOX®, wearing sunscreen, and using quality skin products that contain retinol. 


What do dermal fillers do?

As we age, there is a natural decrease in the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, which is why wrinkles and a loss of facial volume occur. Our skin begins to appear less youthful as fine lines and wrinkles take up permanent residence. When combined with other factors like sun damage, hormonal changes, and gravity, those imperfections can become more apparent. Dermal fillers can be the anti-aging solution to address these concerns. Aesthetic fillers can tackle a myriad of issues:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes 
  • Frown lines, also called glabellar lines, between the eyebrows 
  • Scarring as the result of acne 
  • Laugh lines, also called marionette lines, around the corners of the mouth


And dermal fillers are not just for deep creases or wrinkles. Aesthetic fillers can be used for temporary facial contouring, treating hollowed areas around the eyes, and plumping up lips. There is a dermal filler to meet your every need, and the experts at ZO Skin Centre can give you the results you want.


Combining BOTOX and dermal fillers

Together, these two cosmetic powerhouses can combat the signs of aging. BOTOX and dermal fillers work well together to provide patients with an overall facial rejuvenation treatment. These noninvasive solutions provide a "liquid facelift" option for patients who want to forgo surgical options. Fillers can plump the skin in certain target areas while filling in deep creases, leaving patients with a smoother appearance. BOTOX blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Together, BOTOX and dermal fillers can have a dramatic impact on your appearance. After a one-on-one consultation with one of our experts at ZO Skin Centre, they can help you decide the best course of action to get optimal results. 


One filler treatment can make a difference

One of the main reasons dermal fillers have become increasingly popular is the virtually instant results patients see. In one visit, fillers can decrease wrinkles and restore volume. Results typically last 6 – 9 months, but in some cases, your fresher appearance can be enjoyed for up to 18 months. It depends on the person and the injection site, but generally, dermal fillers stimulate collagen production so patients can enjoy a fresh, new look for months to come. The skin experts at ZO Skin Centre in Dallas offer a variety of dermal fillers, and will ensure that you get the treatment plan you need for optimal results. One thing to note: Though fillers are considered safe, there are a few reasons to hold off on an injection. If you're pregnant, breastfeeding, or battling a sinus infection, it's best to wait to schedule your injections — an infection in the facial area could spread to the injection site.
