Age Gracefully with These Tools

Posted on July 03 2018

We asked awakenMD what medspa offerings are available for common aging concerns. Here's what we learned:

Crow's Feet, Forehead Furrow: Botox or Xeomin are purified forms of botulinum toxin. They temporarily paralyze small muscles, preventing lines from forming and becoming less noticeable.

Under-Eye Bags, Rings or Dark Circles: Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, made from a sugar that naturally occurs in the body, trigger the production of new collagen (the protein fibers that give skin firmness and strength) reducing moderate to severe wrinkles.

Jowls or a Double Chin: Ultherapy uses heat and ultrasound waves to tighten jowls and neck wattle as well as lift brows.

Smile Lines or Lines around the MouthA hyaluronic filler called Juvederm Voluma has very successful results. Injected near the cheekbones and temples or along jawbones, it contours the face, instantly lifting and tightening several areas at once.

Sallow, Blotchy Skin: By removing outer layers of skin with a controlled focused light, fractional nonablative lasers spur collagen production; smooth wrinkles; zap spots, broken capillaries and scars; and, in general, improve skin texture.
