Non-Surgical Facial Aesthetic Treatments

Restoring confidence with Natural Looking, Non-Surgical Facial Aesthetic Procedures is what we provide at Medical Arts Clinic. What happens to the face as we age? As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen thickness and this is where you begin to notice more fine wrinkles and we also see a loss of elastin. Elastin is a protein that allows your skin to stretch and bounce back so as we age it stretches and doesn't bounce back as well. We also see a loss in redistribution of facial fat so you begin to see a change in the formation of the face. When we're young, fat in the face is evenly distributed, with some pockets here and there that plump up the forehead, temples, cheeks, and areas around the eyes and mouth. With age, that fat loses volume, clumps up, and shifts downward, so features that were formerly round may sink, and skin that was smooth and tight gets loose and sags. Fortunately there are numerous Anti-Aging procedures available today to help reverse the signs of aging.

Medical Arts Aesthetics offers injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers to help remove wrinkles, rejuvenate skin and restore your face back to a more natural, youthful appearance. Our Anti-Aging treatments are more than just restoring your own natural beauty, it's really about the confidence that is instilled when you have these procedures done. 

Botox


Botox is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin, a neurotoxin in the form of a purified protein. The mechanism of action for Botulinum Toxin (Botox) is really quite simple; it is injected into facial muscles but really doesn’t affect the muscle at all. Botulinum Toxin (Botox) works by blocking the transmitters between the motor nerves that innervate the muscle.

The areas typically treated with Botulinum Toxin (Botox) for wrinkles are the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region), around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and around the lips (smokers lines or gummy smile). There is no loss of sensory feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract, causing wrinkles in the skin to smooth. The effects of Botulinum Toxin (Botox) last approximately three to four months, at which time the patient will require retreatment.

Dermal Fillers


If you are looking for a non- surgical face lift or you just want to smooth out a few fine lines or fill in deep set wrinkles, injectables are for you. Millions of people use dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression. As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle - that's where dermal fillers come into play. 

 Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers add volume to weakened facial features and can stimulate collagen growth. Each dermal filler is unique in its own way but similar in two. First, they plump skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss due to the normal aging process. Secondly, dermal fillers motivate the body to create its own natural collagen and restore your face to a more natural, youthful appearance. 

 Dermal Fillers are used to treat fine lines, wrinkles and folds; especially in areas where lines are not caused by muscle contraction, such as lines below the nose and around the mouth and chin, and can also be used to restore facial volume and for lip enhancement.
