If you are looking into your options for beauty procedures that help you look much younger, chances are you are considering dermal fillers, as well as Dysport. While they are both delivered to the skin as injections, dermal fillers are generally used to plump up the skin while Dysport is used to reduce facial muscle activity in a way that reduces the appearance of certain wrinkles.

Because they serve different purposes, fillers and Dysport are often used together for the most dramatic results. Here are 5 benefits of dermal fillers and Dysportx:

Dermal Fillers Add Youthful Plumpness

As we age, our skin begins to lose the natural fat under the surface that plumbs up the skin and gives us that youthful, unlined look. This results in more obvious wrinkles, and a hollowed-out appearance that signifies advancing age instead of the healthy, young look we are used to. Dermal fillers help counteract this by plumping up the skin, giving the appearance of fuller cheeks and reducing the signs of crow’s feet and other wrinkles.

Fillers Are Great for Lips

In addition to filling in wrinkles and adding plumpness and volume to your face, fillers can be used to plump up your lips. Using fillers on your lips can make thin lips look sexier and more plump, while also softening the appearance of wrinkles around your mouth. Instead of being self-conscious about your lips, they will soon become one of your favorite features.

Just remember that it’s so important to get your lip fillers (and any dermal fillers) at a qualified med spa like Wright Surgical Arts, to ensure a safe experience and a natural appearance.

Botox Complements Your Fillers

When getting dermal fillers, you may find that there are a few deeper wrinkles on your face (usually on the forehead or vertical lines on either side of your mouth) that fillers aren’t the best approach to get rid of. Dysport is perfect as a complementary procedure to your fillers, temporarily reducing the muscle activity that causes frown lines and other deep wrinkles to appear.

When used in conjunction with each other, dermal fillers and Dysport are a powerful combination that leave you looking much longer, perhaps allowing you to delay a face lift or other surgical option.

Dermal Fillers Reduce the Appearance of Scars

For certain facial scars, a dermal filler can fill in the skin, soften its appearance, and give the appearance of unscarred skin. It’s best to have a consultation with us to determine if fillers or another procedure such as IPL is the best solution for your specific facial scars.

Dermal Fillers and Botox Can Boost Your Collagen Levels

One of the major reasons skin ages over time is that as we get older (and especially if our skin is frequently exposed to the sun without sunblock), collagen production slows down. Collagen is an essential building block of the skin, and when it breaks down and isn’t produced as much, the result is visible aging, including wrinkles and a coarsened skin texture.

One of the amazing things about dermal fillers and Botox is that these injections not only contain collagen, but they can also stimulate your body to begin creating more collagen on its own, just like younger skin does. This enhances the youthful effects of dermal fillers and Dysport in a natural way.

When deciding which beauty procedure is right for you, it’s always a good idea to sit down for a skin consultation with a qualified med spa doctor or nurse injector. They will evaluate your skin and beauty goals and help come up with the best plan. Here at Wright Surgical Arts, we offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical beauty procedures, and are happy to come up with a customized treatment plan that matches your goals and budget.
