Silicone Injection Treatment
Silicone is a permanent injectable filler that can be used on its own or in conjunction with facial rejuvenation treatments such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, Botox Cosmetic®, and Dysport®. The precise nature of the silicone injection treatment offered by North Dallas Dermatology Associates in Dallas, TX makes it perfect for giving your skin a natural, rejuvenated look that you’ll love.
The Benefits of Silicone
Silicone injection treatment is useful to:
- Address acne, chicken pox, and surgical scarring
- Minimize smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Even out wrinkles and fine lines around the neck, chin, and mouth
- Fill in the hollows around the temples and eyes
- Give lips a fuller look
Silicone is not absorbed and broken down by the body. This means that whether you are treating your scars and wrinkles, your smile lines or your lips, once the silicone injection treatment is complete, rejuvenation is permanent.
Silicone Injection Treatment for Acne Scars
Acne scars are caused by pores becoming overwhelmed by bacteria, dead skin cells, and excess oil. As the pore swells, the follicle wall may break, leading to the creation of a lesion. While some lesions may not drastically impact tissues, others may affect deeper tissues of the skin. With a silicone injection treatment, the process stimulates the production of collagen to repair the tissues and minimize the appearance of the lesion.
How Does It Work?
A very small needle is used to deposit micro-droplets of silicone underneath the skin. This silicone micro-injection fills in your skin’s defects, and the body will begin to accept the silicone as a part of itself. Collagen forms around the silicone over the course of 4 to 6 weeks, leaving you with natural-feeling and healthy looking skin. This treatment requires little to no downtime, and our clients can resume their daily routines immediately following their appointments.
Am I a Good Candidate for Silicone Injection Treatment?
Any questions and concerns that you have will be answered by the doctor before your treatment. The majority of those who seek this type of rejuvenation treatment are seeking to improve the overall look of their skin. These are a few questions to ask yourself while considering this type of treatment:
- Do you suffer from acne or chicken pox scars or surgical scarring from previous procedures?
- Are your nasolabial folds (smile lines) adding to an aged appearance?
- Do you have wrinkles or fine lines around your mouth, chin, and neck that you would like to see disappear?
- Are there hollows around your temples and eyes, leading to a gaunt appearance?
Would you like fuller, more voluminous lips?
Chances are good that if you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you could be a perfect candidate for the silicone injection treatment. A consultation with our professionals is the best way to determine your candidacy for treatment.
