As a dermatologist in Dallas, I understand that my patients want results that look natural – not overdone. Heredity may be one factor in your ability to have smooth, youthful-looking skin, but it’s not the only one. A skilled and experienced dermatologist can use skin rejuvenation treatments to turn back the clock on visible aging. Here are 3 of treatments I offer that are effective enough to make a visible difference, but so subtle they can be passed off as “good genes”:
BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®
Your facial muscles contract each time you smile, frown or furrow your brow, eventually causing what are known as dynamic wrinkles. Injections of BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport smooth out these wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that caused them. In the hands of an experienced practitioner, these injectables achieve results that can fool even your grandparents!
Young skin is smooth and elastic – not only because of superior hydration but because of healthy levels of collagen that create volume in underlying tissues. Factors like sun damage can diminish volume and hydration in these areas, causing the skin to age prematurely. Incorporating natural materials like hyaluronic acid and calcium, dermal fillers restore facial volume by promoting hydration and in some cases, collagen production.
Laser skin resurfacing is like pressing a “reset” button for your skin. Whether you need to correct brown spots, fine lines, rough patches or scarring, this technique removes the outer layer of damaged skin. The healthier, more youthful layers underneath are revealed, giving you an even, smooth complexion that defies your years without a “worked on” look.
