Aging Skin 101

Aging & wrinkles are truly one of the most upsetting aspects of getting older. So many of us FEEL & THINK the same way we did when we were 22, but now when we look in the mirror we don’t recognize that person!  Our skin starts aging from the day we’re born and it can start to show (incredibly) as early as in our 20’s! Unfortunatly, our skin’s firmness decreases due to both internal factors (genetics and natural aging) and external ones (sun exposure, smoking, stress, etc). The good news is there are services (and products) that can dramatically improve the way your skin looks and feels and that’s what Aesthetics Office is all about!

What can we do about our aging skin?

  1. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity
  2. Hyaluronic acid diminishes as we age, causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear
  3. Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a naturally occurring substance that delivers volume to the skin. Juvederm® is a long-lasting, non-surgical option that contains a modified form of HA. Fillers that include HA are a top choice and over 90% of filler patients receive a Hyaluronic Acide dermal filler.

We have a Wide Varity of Injectables to Suit Your Every Need!

The Restylane Family of Injectables

The good news about aging is that you can do something about it in both the face and hands with products in the Restylane family — to help reveal a younger-looking you.

The Restylane family of Injectables includes Restylane, Refyne, Defyne, Lyft and each specializes in a particular funcction or more. 

The Restylane® line naturally smooths away facial wrinkles and folds (Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne), provides subtle lip enhancement (Restylane, Restylane Silk), smooths the lines around the mouth (Restylane Silk), adds lift and volume to the cheeks (Restylane Lyft), and helps reverse the signs of volume loss in the back of the hands (Restylane Lyft).

The Juvederm Family of Injectables

The Juvederm® family of injectibles is also made up of a very effective line of hyaluronic acid products and includes 5 different products that will easily solve whtaever your concerns are and get you feeling better about yourself today.

Whether you need to add volume to plump your lips, or smooth facial lines, or you need to lift & contour your cheeks—Juvederm can deliver the results you want.

The Ravanesse Family of Injectibles

Ravanesse® Versa™ is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can be used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and foldes, including nasolabial folds.  Versa was designed for safety, immediate results and less sweelling plus it last for 1 year. 

Ravanesse® Lips™+ was designed for use in lips in patients 22 years of age or more.  Lips™ is well liked by patients with a whopping 94.3% rated themselves as “improved” or “much improved” and more than 98% reporting that they had no or very little swelling after their first treatment.  Lips can be enhanced with only minimal downtime, substantially less pain (than competitive injectables) and at a lower price point (because less product is needed to create great results)!  


As we age, our skin’s natural collagen supply decreases (by age 45, we will have lost up to 25% of our collagen!) and wrinkles and facial aging is the result.

Sculptra Aesthetic is an amazing product that activates the skin’s natural regenerative process and help replenish lost collagen. The Sculptra injectable subtly and gradually over time helps restore facial volume.

The Radiesse Family of Injectables

Radiesse® and Radiesse+® are dermal fillers that are used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth, called the Nasolabial Folds. Radiesse® is one of the few products that people love to use for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.


Kybella® is a very special product as it is the only injectible designed specificlly to treat a “double chin”.  Kybella®  is administered as a series of injections to the treatment area under the chin, destroying fat cells and producing gradual results. Everyone’s chin profile is different, so Aestheics Office will tailor your  treatment to your special situation. The number of treatment sessions will vary based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals.
