Sagging skin and wrinkles are inevitable signs of aging that can be addressed through nonsurgical treatments.
Dermal fillers are injectables that can smooth your skin and fine lines, giving you a younger appearance.
See how fillers from a plastic surgeon with an artistic eye, like Dr. Ken Smart in Frisco, TX, can make you look more vibrant in one visit.
Your Filler Options at Our Frisco, TX, Office
JUVÉDERM injectables replace hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that keeps your skin plump and hydrated. These dermal fillers last about 6 to 18 months and are absorbed by your body naturally over time.
If you undergo this treatment, Dr. Smart will gently inject small amounts of JUVÉDERM into the targeted areas with a fine needle. The hyaluronic acid in the JUVÉDERM filler quickly treats smile lines, small wrinkles around your lips, and lines that run vertically from your mouth to chin.
Restylane contains hyaluronic acid and can increase the volume and firmness of your skin. The Restylane filler attracts and binds moisture to add plumpness to your skin tissue.
By filling the space between elastin fibers and collagen, the Restylane dermal filler makes your skin supple and smoother.
RADIESSE is a dermal filler that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose. This nontoxic, nonallergenic restores collagen levels in your skin, reducing deep lines and wrinkles. RADIESSE is the first FDA-approved dermal filler for use on your hands and face.
Your body's natural production of collagen is stimulated by RADIESSE, creating long-lasting results.
Look Your Best as You Age
With every passing year, people naturally lose collagen and hyaluronic acid, making their skin appear loser. Dermal fillers from our Frisco, TX, plastic surgeon will smooth out hard lines and give your face a rejuvenated appearance. Patients often see results quickly, and dermal fillers have a relatively quick recovery time compared to plastic surgery procedures.

Understanding the Side Effects
Fillers do come with side effects, including:
Dr. Smart will use the latest techniques to minimize your chances of developing these side effects. Patients who experience some of these symptoms report they recover from them over a short period. Over-the-counter medication can help with discomfort. A cool compress can help reduce swelling and bruising.
Are Dermal Fillers and BOTOX the same?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable treatment that has a different purpose than fillers. Where a dermal filler makes the skin plump, BOTOX relaxes the muscles to smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. A single BOTOX Cosmetic treatment can give you a more youthful appearance and stop new wrinkles from forming.
BOTOX Cosmetic can last three to four months, shorter than dermal fillers usually last.
Like dermal fillers, the side effects from BOTOX injections are minimal. Talk to Dr. Smart today about which option is better for your cosmetic goals.
Enjoying the Results
The side effects from your dermal fillers should heal within a week or sooner, giving you a clearer view of your final results.
Restylane, JUVÉDERM, and RADIESSE can last from 18 months to 24 months, but the total longevity of the dermal filler will vary from patient to patient. Depending on your cosmetic concerns, you may need touch-up treatments every six to 12 months.
Top Skin Care Advice
While dermal fillers can add volume to your face and make you appear younger, taking extra steps to improve your skin will also enhance your appearance. Dr. Smart recommends you do the following between dermal filler appointments:
Eat Healthy Foods
Water and a nutrient-rich diet will keep your skin healthy.
Establish a Skincare Routine
Washing and moisturizing your face daily will keep your skin clean.
You should try to limit your exposure to ultraviolet rays, which can break down collagen and cause premature aging. If you do spend time in the sun, we recommend wearing sunscreen and protective clothing.
Paying for Dermal Fillers
When it comes to cosmetic treatments, fillers are some of the most affordable treatment options. Your treatment price will depend on how many fillers are involved and which brands you choose.
Dr. Smart accepts cash, checks, and credit cards: Visa®, Mastercard®, American Express®, and Discover®.
To help make payments more affordable, Dr. Smart also offers financing through CareCredit®, ALPHAEON® Credit, and United Medical Credit. Talk to our Frisco team today to see which option is best for you.
"Dr. Smart's work is absolutely amazing."
I cannot express enough how amazing Dr. Smart and his team are. I lost over 100lbs and needed my loose skin removed. I had an upper and lower body lift, arms, and breast lift. I had to overnight after my surgery and the nurses took such great care of me. They are always so professional and kind. Dr.Smart’s work is absolutely amazing. He performed a miracle on my body and I couldn’t be happier with the results. There are also constant follow up visits to make sure everything is healing right and when I needed to ask some questions I was able to email the nurse and she got back to me right away.View on Google
Dr. Smart's office is very clean and professional. He and his staff were very informative about the liposuction procedure and told me everything I needed to know to prepare for surgery and the post-op recovery. The surgery went fantastic and I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Smart checked on how I was doing the very next day, and I've had several follow up appointments since surgery that have all gone well. I would highly recommend Dr. Smart and his very capable staff for any of your plastic surgery needs.View on Google
