Fillers Q & A

What Causes My Skin to Age?

Aging can do a number on your skin because of several factors. First, as you get older, your production of collagen and elastin begins to wane. While perfectly natural, the loss of these important structural proteins means that you have less elasticity and tone in your skin.

Without the structural support that collagen and elastin provide, the thin layer of fat underneath your skin can begin to migrate, leaving you with a loss of volume in your lower face and deepening folds. This leads to sunken cheeks and a more “jowly” look.

Rounding out the list of anti-aging problems are the marks etched in your skin by the dynamic wrinkles around your eyes, brows, and forehead. Every time you smile, frown, or squint, your muscles contract to form lines on the upper half of your face and these lines become more permanent as your skin loses its natural support.

How Does Dysport® Work?

Dysport contains abobotulinumtoxin A, which is a neuromodulator that relaxes the muscles that form your glabellar lines. Dysport smooths out the frown lines that give you an “angry” look, while still allowing other muscles to work in the area so that you still have freedom of expression.

How Does Juvéderm® Work?

Juvéderm is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your body. The providers at Dr. G’s use Juvéderm to:

  • Restore volume to your cheeks
  • Fill in your nasolabial folds (the deep lines that run down either side of your mouth)
  • Plump your lips
  • Diminish the small, vertical lines around your lips

Since Juvéderm relies on hyaluronic acid, your body readily accepts the filler and naturally processes the ingredients over time.

When Will I See Results From Cosmetic Injectables?

One of the greatest advantages of cosmetic injectables is that the results are incredibly quick. With Juvéderm, the results are immediate, while Dysport requires two to three days to take full effect.

Your Dysport injection typically lasts up to four months, at which time you return to Dr. G’s for a follow-up treatment. And the dermal filler can last up to 12 months.
