Signs of aging
As we age skin loses volume. This results in wrinkles. They can be anywhere on the face – between the eyebrows or at the corners of our eyes. Dr. Pentel and her team offer injectable neuromodulators and dermal fillers to rejuvenate the appearance of skin.
Treatments to help restore a youthful appearance
Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, Juvéderm, Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane, and Sculptra are treatments available to restore vibrancy to your skin. We offer the following:
- Injectable neuromodulators – Botox and Dysport are prescription injections. They target muscles that contract when we make facial expressions. Neuromodulator help to relax muscles, leaving you with smoother looking skin. That result lasts about three to six months.
- Dermal fillers – Juvéderm, Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane, and Sculptra fall into this category. These fillers add immediate volume, and stimulate natural production of collagen, a protein that keeps skin firm. Dermal filler treatments are non-surgical procedures.
Juvéderm, Restylane, and Perlane contain a substance found in the skin, hyaluronic acid, which keeps skin hydrated and serves as a cushioning agent. These products treat facial lines and add volume to the face.
Sculptra and Radiesse are collagen stimulators. These gel formulations contain microspheres composed of calcium hydroxyapatite. After an injection, the body absorbs the substance as the spheres break down. We use Sculptra to treat folds between the mouth and nose, chin wrinkles, and mouth-framing lines. It takes several months for full results. However, with Radiesse and Sculptra, you could enjoy the outcome for two years or more.
