How Can Injectables Help Patients Obtain Youthful-Looking Skin?

By: Dr. Jerry Chidester


Wrinkles and volume loss are part of the natural aging process, but they can make you feel less than confident about your appearance. If you want to turn back the hands of time but are not interested in invasive procedures or surgery, consider adding cosmetic injectables to your beauty routine. The Plastics Clinic offers a wide range of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers known for their stunning results.

Below, Dr. Jerry Chidester discusses the injectables offered at The Plastics Clinic and what to expect from this anti-aging treatment in South Jordan, UT. We strive to provide natural-looking results that help you feel like the best version of yourself.

What are wrinkle relaxers?

Our skin becomes more fragile and less firm as we age due to a loss of collagen production. But did you know that making facial expressions also contribute to fine lines and wrinkles?

When we smile, squint, or frown, the muscles contract and cause creases to form on the surface of our skin. Wrinkle relaxers temporarily paralyze these muscles by blocking the nerve signals. The result is a healthier, smoother complexion that appears more refreshed.

The most well-known wrinkle relaxer on the market is BOTOX®, which manages Crow's feet, forehead lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows. The Plastics Clinic also offers Dysport® for patients who want similar results but with a slightly different formula.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers are known for managing areas of volume loss to give our features a fuller appearance. Fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are made from hyaluronic acid and come in a variety of formulas based on your problem areas. Cosmetic injectables can address nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth, plump up your lips, or enhance the contour of your cheeks.

Sculptra® Aesthetic is unique in that it promotes collagen production for long-lasting results. It is particularly beneficial for longer-lasting and deeper volume replacement in the cheeks and mid-face.

What to expect from cosmetic injectables

A skin assessment will help Dr. Chidester and our team members at The Plastics Clinic to determine which products are best based on your goals and areas of concern. Once you decide to move forward with treatment in South Jordan, UT, we cleanse your skin and apply a simple numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the injection process.

Dr. Chidester is experienced in administering injections and will carefully place the needle in the target areas. Treatment only takes a few minutes, although this varies depending on the number of areas being treated. You may experience redness at the injection sites, but any side effects are temporary and should resolve within a few days.

Do results look natural?

Some patients are concerned that injectables will give them a frozen or artificial appearance. However, when administered by an experienced provider, our treatment provides very natural and youthful outcomes. We take care to customize each experience and only use the amount of product necessary to achieve your desired results.
