Aesthetics

How you look is as important as how you feel. Anti-Aging and Functional medicine we specialize in aesthetics with Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins and Juvederm & Restylane dermal filler injections.  There is a Physician’s Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, or medical assistant to perform your aesthetic injections.

Juvederm & Restylane are naturally occurring aesthetics injectable agents used for lip enhancement and to soften facial lines and creases

Facial aging includes things like:
  • Thinning of the lips
  • Deepening of the nasolabial folds
  • Development of lines running vertically downward from the corners of the mouth.

Indeed Juvederm & Restylane aesthetics injections can, in many cases, instantly and dramatically improve these features. Juvederm & Restylane can also improve some depressed scars and also vertical lines around the mouth. Additionally, it can soften other facial tissue abnormalities too. 

Our patients see immediate results following dermal filler injections.  Most popular fillers are temporary lasting 6-12 months.

Both Juvederm & Restylane are dermal fillers that consist of Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that provides the overall fullness and elasticity. Over time skin starts to lose the hyaluronic acid causing the skin to lose volume which in turn can lead to wrinkles and folds to appear from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).

Another type of non-surgical anti-aging method is Sclerotherapy

This aesthetics injectable helps to get rid of embarrassing spider veins. Administration of the treatment is via injection of a sclerosing agent directly into the spider veins. This agent causes irritation to the walls of the vessel resulting in a sclerosed or non functioning vein.  During the healing process, blood stops flowing through the vein and thus the vein is less apparent.  Significantly, one must note that typically riddance of spider veins requires multiple treatments of the same vein(s).  There are many different sclerosing agents available for use. However, at Anti Aging & Functional Medicine, we use Glycerin. And of course, Glycerin is less painful and additionally has fewer side effects.
