Dermal Fillers for Wrinkles
The effects of aging accumulate over time, eventually resulting in deep wrinkles, sagging skin, and discoloration. But long before you get to that point, the subtle signs of aging begin to appear. Many women who come to my Dallas plastic surgery practice are seeking non-surgical treatments for the fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging that make them look older than they feel on the inside. Dermal fillers are an excellent option for patient who are not ready for surgical procedures such as facelift in Dallas. These "injectables" are useful for treating firmly established facial wrinkles or larger lines of facial aging (such as the nasolabial folds). They can restore volume to the face and add structure as well.
Although these injectable treatments are not as long-lasting as surgical correction of age changes, they are significantly less expensive and have a shorter "down-time" for recovery. For patients who are just beginning to show the changes associated with aging, the rapidly expanding repertoire of injectable treatments is perfect to suit their needs. Injectables can be performed during an office visit, rather than needing a trip to the operating room. In certain areas, such as the "smile-lines", topical anesthesia may suffice. In other, more sensitive areas (such as the lips), nerve blocks can be used to make the treatment more comfortable than a visit to the dentist.
Depending on the type of filler and the depth at which it is injected, Dr. Bogdan can smooth out fine lines on the surface of the skin, fill in deep lines (eg: nasolabial folds), augment soft tissues (such as the lips), or even effectively augment facial bone structure. Dr. Bogdan offers several advanced dermal fillers and he has the training and experience to perform these treatments artfully and effectively.

Wrinkle Treatment Options
If you find yourself looking in the mirror and wondering how you can rejuvenate your tired-looking face, dermal fillers might be an effective choice for you. Many of Dr. Bogdan's patients who are starting to consider a face lift actually find that they can "buy some time" with the use of these relatively new treatments. Alternatively, women and men who have visited Dr. Bogdan for facial cosmetic surgery procedures like blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) in Dallas can enhance their results with dermal fillers.
Note: Dr. Bogdan enjoys the finesse changes that can occur with the appropriate use of injectable treatments, and will continue providing this service to his established patients (time permitting). Due to the constraints of his busy surgical schedule, he is unable to accept new patients interested in injectable therapies.
