Aesthetics is a branch of medicine that addresses the skin changes associated with aging. It aims to slow the signs of aging by using non-surgical approaches to enhance your appearance.
There are various reasons you may be interested in aesthetic medicine. Some common signs of aging that the team addresses include the following:
As you age, the skin loses fat and becomes thinner, especially in the face. The team offers Botox for wrinkles and fine lines and hyaluronic acid fillers to improve facial fullness for a youthful glow.
Botox is one of the treatments the team offers for treating fine lines and wrinkles. You may know Botox as an FDA-approved medication that comes from the bacteria that causes the food poisoning botulism.
However, aesthetic providers use a purified form of the toxin that’s safe for use in the skin. You may consider Botox if you notice any of the following signs of aging:
The effects of Botox are temporary but last for several months at a time. The length of time the injections work depends on various factors, including how your body metabolizes the toxin and how well you follow the aftercare instructions.
Aesthetic fillers are gel-like injections the team uses under the skin to improve the signs of aging. Dermal fillers are temporary, and the team uses them for the following problems:
The FDA has also approved temporary fillers to improve the appearance of acne scars on the cheeks.
At Puget Sound Medical Associates, the team offers Juvéderm fillers to improve your appearance. Juvéderm fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the human body.
These fillers are temporary because the body breaks down the hyaluronic acid over time, meaning you’ll require repeat injections to maintain the youthful appearance you’ve achieved with Juvéderm fillers.
