Anti-Aging Q & A

Why do you lose facial volume and develop wrinkles as you age?

Aging is inevitable. And as you get older, your body produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid, compounds that give skin a taut, smooth, and lifted look. With time, skin becomes more lax and thinner, and areas of your face look hollow instead of plump and smooth.

External factors such as sun damage and pollution exposure can hasten the aging of your skin. And if you have an expressive face, continued muscle action etches lines and wrinkles into the areas around your eyes and forehead.

What anti-aging treatments are available?

Elite Wellness Weight Loss offers the dermal fillers Restylane® and Juvéderm® as well as Botox® to reduce the signs of aging. The dermal fillers restore levels of a natural compound known as hyaluronic acid that naturally plumps and smooths the skin. The fillers also stimulate collagen production to strengthen the structure of tissue, too.

Botox softens lines and wrinkles that are caused by expression. By temporarily halting the muscle activity, you look less worried and distressed. Rather, your appearance softens and eases to make you look younger and more relaxed.

Are anti-aging treatments invasive and expensive?

Dermal fillers and Botox are considered minimally invasive treatments. They’re administered via injections given right in the office. You’re in and out of your appointment quickly, and because you don’t have to schedule downtime, you can go back to your normal activities afterward. 

Results of dermal fillers are evident immediately, and those from Botox show with a few days.

At Elite Wellness Weight Loss, the team works with you to offer affordable anti-aging treatments. Prices are competitive, and they offer price matching.

How long do the effects of anti-aging treatments last?

The effects of dermal fillers and wrinkle reducers are temporary but repeatable. Dermal fillers can reduce wrinkles and fill in lost volume for up to two years. 

Botox softens wrinkles for 3-4 months. When the effects wear off, you can come in for additional injections to maintain your look.
