shutterstock_123714850Wrinkle formation is one of the most common, most visibly obvious signs of aging.  As we age and our skin loses vital nutrients such as collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA), and our skin is exposed to environmental damage such as the sun and pollution, the underlying structures of the face begin to sag and the face loses its youthful fullness.  Wrinkles and folds begin to form, and are aggravated by repeated movements, especially around the forehead, eyes, and mouth.  Luckily, signs of aging such as wrinkles and lost facial volume can be easily and cost-effectively corrected with the use of prescription-strength injectables, such as neuromodulators and dermal fillers.  Although these two types of injectables work very differently, the final results are similar: a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance with smooth, plump skin and minimal wrinkles and folds.

Neuromodulators work by weakening the musculature surrounding the wrinkles in the forehead, eyes, and mouth.  By relaxing the muscles and temporarily inhibiting muscle activity, treatments with this category of injectable serve to immediately smooth wrinkles and to inhibit the formation of additional wrinkles by preventing repeated muscle contractions that lead to fold and wrinkle development.  Dermal fillers work by replacing the skin’s lost nutrients, restoring volume and filling out lines and wrinkles.  Biological rejuvenation treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and L-Glutathione (GSH) activate and energize the body’s own healing capabilities to provide your skin with a youthful vigor that is both stunning and subtle.  These treatment options are often performed in conjunction with each other to maximize both immediate and long-term rejuvenation.
