Wrinkles and fine lines show our age and can make us look older than we feel. Injectable treatments, such as Neurotoxin and dermal fillers, temporarily reduce these signs of aging. At Ethos Integrative Medicine, Dr. Alexandra Mayer provides injections using Botox and Xeomin, two of the most effective these effective, simple, nonsurgical solutions to aging.
Described as dermal fillers, these injectable medicines plump and hydrate your skin to erase lines and wrinkles and fill in hollow contours. As you get older, your face naturally loses the fat pads that exist just beneath the skin. Your facial muscles are then closer to the skin, and their action is then more obvious as smile lines and crow’s feet develop. Plus, as you get older, compounds such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin are produced in lesser quantities, making your skin drier, saggy, and less resilient.
Dermal fillers replace and stimulate the production of these natural compounds in order to:
- Plump thin lips
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of scars
- Fill in contours in the cheeks
