What causes the skin to age?
The younger you look, the better you feel about yourself. But age is an unstoppable process and, as the body ages, the appearance and characteristics of our skin change. Age, hormones, sun exposure, and smoking all have part to play, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Skin becomes more fragile and less elastic. As our age increases, the hyaluronic acid (HA) content of our skin (important for water retention), collagen, and elastin (which provide tone and elasticity) decrease. The oil-producing (sebaceous) glands become less active, and your skin becomes more dry. The skin also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth and it also loses its youthful color and glow. While all these changes are taking place, gravity is also at work, pulling at the skin, causing it to sag.
There are two major components of facial aging:
Treating both of these main components of facial aging leads to natural, balanced and refined outcomes:
Botulinum Toxin relaxes hyperactive muscles and therefore treats facial lines, creating a smooth and more relaxed appearance. Our Botox NYC and Botox New York specials offer different treatment options targeting each area with specific needs. Botox is administered by tiny injections of the purified protein solution in desired areas to either create a brow lift, and or reduce/eliminate wrinkles on the face and neck. Botox is also used for the treatment of excessive underarm perspiration.
Juvederm® ULTRA – a HA filler range – replaces volume and treats static facial lines by replenishing the natural hyaluronic acid content of the skin. It is also injected in different areas of the face for lip augmentation, cheek augmentation, chin contouring and nasal contouring.
Radiesse, a Calcium based dermal filler works deeper in the dermis to replace volume. Therefore it is used for deeper areas of depression and furrows. It is also a great choice for the enhancement of cheeks, or contouring of the nose and other facial areas such as the jowls.
