Some say age is just a number, and you’re only as old as you feel, but if your face is lined, wrinkled, and saggy, it’s tough to hide your real age. Like many people, you may have turned to jars of cream to fix the issue, only to be disappointed. Now, you’re wondering what to try next. If you’ve been curious about dermal fillers, you’ve come to the right place.
We say that because although dermal fillers are very popular, and it seems as though you can get them everywhere, you should think twice about who you let inject your face.
At A to Z Dermatology, Jayshri Gamoth, MD, our CEO and medical director, is one of Arizona’s leading dermatological surgeons and skin cancer specialists. Kate Joyce Forest, MD, is our board-certified dermatologist who specializes in diagnosing and treating all types of skin conditions. Our entire team of medical professionals is highly qualified to administer your dermal fillers based on their vast medical knowledge and familiarity with facial anatomy.
We offer dermal filler injections at all five of our Arizona locations in Chandler, Mesa, Casa Grande, Gold Canyon, and Sun City. A one-time treatment is quick, and the results are instant, but we think you’ll want to add regular dermal filler appointments to your overall anti-aging skin regimen. Here’s why.
Skin care is a very individualistic thing, and rightly so. No two people are alike, and each has unique needs. That said, some people do more than others to nourish their skin.
A good basic skin care routine starts with knowing your skin type and its needs, followed by daily cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection. But an anti-aging skin care routine goes a few steps further and includes protecting your delicate skin from the trauma of daily habits, including harsh products, aggressive rubbing, and sleep wrinkles. It may also involve the use of specialized skin care products formulated for aging skin.
But no matter how diligent you are, time eventually catches up with you, and you need a little help to reset the clock on your face. That’s where dermal fillers come in.
When you consider the main reasons your face looks older — crepey texture, deep lines, sunken cheeks, thinning lips, and droopy jowls — you realize that there’s nothing in your current skin care routine that can correct them.
Dermal fillers address each of those problems by restoring the volume you’ve lost under the surface of the skin over the past several years. The reason your face looks older is that you’ve been losing fat and collagen since your 20s. Without that structural scaffolding, your skin shrivels like a deflated latex balloon, and gravity tugs the loose skin downward.
The solution is to replace the lost volume, and that’s exactly what dermal fillers can do for you. At A to Z Dermatology, we love the Juvéderm® line of dermal fillers for their versatility and effectiveness.
Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance that your body already produces, so it feels right at home when we inject it under your skin. The entire line of Juvéderm products is FDA approved and safe, so you can use it again and again as part of your regular anti-aging routine.
Once we strategically fill the thinning areas of your face with Juvéderm, the hollows of your cheeks regain their youthful contours, your lips plump up, and your wrinkles fade away. There’s no downtime required, so you can go straight back to work, run errands, or anything else on your to-do list.
Your results last up to a year, but when you start seeing the signs again, just make an appointment for a quick touch up, and you can start all over again with a smoother, fresher-looking face.
If you want to add dermal fillers to your regular anti-aging routine, give us a call or request an appointment online at any of our five Arizona locations today.
