Eliminate Wrinkles and Saggy Skin Caused by Sun Damage

July 15, 2014

While basking in the warm rays of the Phoenix sun may feel nice, it can cause long-term effects which are often harmful to your skin. People see a sunny day as a chance to tan and take a dip in the pool, but without the application of sunscreen, this can cost you smooth wrinkle-free skin. Sunburns and mottled pigmentation are some of the beginning signs of too much sun exposure with little protection of your skin. If you haven’t stopped to consider the amount of sun exposure you receive daily, reading the information below may have you taking an extra second out of your day to apply sunscreen before leaving your home! Believe us, it can save you a lot of heartache as you age.

How Does The Sun Cause Wrinkles?

Beautiful skin is not only a way to avoid spending hundreds of dollars on age-rewinding products, but is also a way to reduce the risk of major health concerns. If you don’t spend long amounts of time in the sun, more serious causes of sun exposure, such as skin cancer and benign tumors may not be a high concern for you as others who do spend lots of time in the sun. However, fine coarse wrinkles caused by Elastosis (the destruction of the elastic and collagen tissue) are produced by normal sun exposure without the regular application of sunscreen. Let’s talk about how these wrinkles form in the first place by ultraviolent (UV) light produced by the sun.


The sun’s ultraviolent light damages the collagen in the second layer of skin, called the dermis. As collagen begins to break down, it loses the ability to support your skin’s structure. Once the structure of your skin begins to weaken, it begins to sag, stretch, and wrinkle. Gross, right? In addition to Elastosis, exposure to the sun’s ultraviolent light can cause:

  • Skin Cancer
  • Sallowness (a yellowish color of the skin)
  • Freckles
  • Sun poising
  • Sunburn
  • Dehydration

Wrinkle-free Services

If you suffer from facial wrinkles and saggy skin caused by recent or past sun exposure, you are not alone. Particularly in the Scottsdale and Phoenix areas, men and women suffer from earlier indications of aging, typically caused by the high amount of sun exposure. DreamBody offers two services that can help diminish wrinkles and fine lines in the face. Botox and Fillers add volume, and provide smoother skin to the targeted area. Take a further look into the benefits both services can provide for you and your skin to see which service may be best for you!

Botox for Eliminating Wrinkles

In just 10 minutes you can eliminate the fine course lines caused by sun exposure. Botox is a purified protein that helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The process can be completed on nearly any area of the face you desire. Not only does Botox eliminate wrinkles and saggy skin, but helps prevent further development of these problems. To help sum up your Botox treatment, we have organized the process and benefits of Botox into four easy steps.


  1. Simple Injection
  2. Smoothens out fine course wrinkles
  3. Noticeable results in a few days
  4. Results last 3-4 months

Fillers for Saggy Skin

The loss of collagen when exposed to the sun can result in saggy skin, typically around the eyes and cheeks. The hyaluronic acid in Fillers binds with the water in your skin to bring volume to your face. Fillers restore elasticity to the collagen that was previously damaged by the sun, making this service the perfect solution for sun exposure. Below is the Filler process summed up in a few simple steps.


  1. Simple Injections
  2. Fills in wrinkles and fine lines
  3. Immediate Results
  4. Results last one year

Don’t invest your time and money into buying cosmetic products that don’t seem to work. Most people confuse the acceleration of wrinkles as a normal process of aging, but could have easily retained smooth skin by taking the appropriate steps to protect their skin.

How to Protect Your Skin from the Sun

Protecting your skin from the sun’s ultraviolent rays can have countless benefits alongside smoother and healthier looking skin. Although it is recommended you avoid sun exposure all together, we have chosen simple and easy-to-remember ways to avoid the ultraviolent light while outside.

Use Sunscreen

You don’t have to be headed out to the beach to apply sunscreen. Anytime you risk sun exposure, always remember to apply a sunscreen with and SPF of at least 35. Apply a thick amount of sunscreen to all areas of the skin (avoiding the eyes). Not rubbing the appropriate amount of sunscreen can reduce its effectiveness by up to 50 percent!

Put on a Hat

A hat with a wide brim can help protect your face, head, ears and neck. These areas are exposed to the sun more frequently than others, so a hat can reduce the risk of damaged skin greatly. Choosing a hat with tightly woven fabric will block additional light from penetrating your skin.

Find the perfect hat to protect your skin from the sun while staying in style this summer from the fashion experts at Elle.

Wear Sunglasses

Some sunglasses are made especially with UV protection. This helps reflect ultraviolent rays from your eyes, which are highly sensitive to sunlight. Many people forget that eyelids and the surface of the eye are also at risk for skin cancer.

Avoid Tanning

Whether you are tanning by the pool, in a tanning bed, or incidentally, all types of sun exposure can be harmful to your skin. The UV radiation damages your skin while it takes on a bronze glow. The risk for skin cancer and melanoma are more likely to develop whether tanning outside or indoors.

Why Should I Get Fillers in My Face?

February 26, 2014

Why Should I Get Fillers

An anti-aging treatment that doesn’t include incisions or anesthesia sounds too good to be true, right? Filler injections help rejuvenate and refresh your face by using a naturally occurring substance found in our skin. With so many available treatments out there, it can sometimes get overwhelming when trying to pick the best option for you and your skin! Like everyone else, as we age we lose collagen in our skin leaving unwanted wrinkles behind.

Fillers are an easy way to add volume to your face, plumping and lifting cheeks making you look like you did years ago. Since fillers stiffen the collagen in your skin, they also help to prevent more wrinkles from forming.

For those patients who don’t want a dramatic change and want to avoid the surgical table, this is the perfect solution. The filler process is quick and easy using simple injections to give you a younger, more full look. Once completed, you can go about your day and even plan a night out to show off your new look! There are no instructions needed for after care, so say goodbye to the usual “recovery time”. If it’s not age that you’re worried about quite yet, filler injections are a great way to bring volume and fullness to your lips. Still not convinced? This quick and simple treatment shows results the very same day. Don’t let the aging process slow you down from getting the look you want. Watch those deep lines and wrinkles disappear instantly, leaving you with more confidence than ever before.

Did we mention that it’s not just women finding interest in this miracle makeover? Men are just as cautious about the wrinkles that come along with aging, so it’s never shocking to see men in the DreamBody office.

Fillers can be mixed with other treatments as well, such as Botox, which DreamBody also offers as an anti-aging treatment. Both are used to help renew the look of your skin and smooth out those annoying lines. We even offer both the services at the same time if needed; now that’s efficient!

Repeat treatments are needed for many non-permanent solutions to skin. Depending on the type of filler, results tend to last up to one year before you’ll want to make an appointment for your next visit. To schedule your filler consultation, click here.

At DreamBody we offer Juvederm fillers. They’re pretty much the same type filler, just different name brands. Patients do have preferences and we’ll inject accordingly. Candidates for fillers are someone with very deep lines that are not able to get injected through BOTOX. Generally below the nose is the most common area to get a filler. Around the lips or in the lips as well. The benefits of receiving filler is pretty much an instant result. You’re going to see the area plump up and the lines decrease right before your eyes. Fillers can definitely go hand in hand with BOTOX. You can do both areas below your nose for a filler, above your nose for BOTOX on the very same day. Fillers tend to last about a year, depending on which filler we use and what area we use it in. If you use a lot of filler in one area, it’s going to last longer than if you spread one syringe of filler in multiple areas.

Fillers are a money-saving alternative to expensive facial creams

December 21, 2011

We are bombarded with ads for creams and lotions that promise a miracle cure for wrinkles. The ads are everywhere – in magazines, on TV, online, and in the aisle of every grocery store and department store. The makers of these creams, lotions, and gels tell us that they contain secret formulas and advanced scientific ingredients that will make us look years younger in a matter of days. Some of these products do actually help, but they are expensive and must be used on a regular basis for an indefinite period of time. A better way to achieve wrinkle free and plumper, more youthful looking skin is to invest in fillers.



Dermal Fillers

instead of

Expensive Creams

give you longer lasting results. While anti wrinkle creams are, in general, less expensive than fillers, you use more and it you need to replace the creams on a regular basis for an indefinite amount of time. The creams also don’t work as quickly as fillers. Creams can take weeks or even months to produce results, while fillers refresh your face in just days. In the long run, the facial creams are more costly than fillers.

Fillers are simple injections that add a fullness and elasticity to the face and skin, bringing back the youthful glow that used to be there. There are three types of fillers offered, and they each consist of slightly different components that affect the skin in slightly different ways.


is a gel made of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in your skin and binds with the water in your skin to add more volume.


is a calcium-based microsphere gel. It is injected into the skin and adds volume, but also stimulates collagen growth to help keep you looking youthful.


Is a collagen injection that is long-lasting and erases wrinkles while supporting the skin.

So, the next time you are considering trying the latest expensive wrinkle reducing cream, considering saving money by looking into facial fillers! Contact a cosmetic medical professional to find which type is right for you and say good bye to those expensive creams and lotions while saying hello to a new, refreshed looking you!
