Injectable Non Surgical Cosmetic Procedures
By the time you reach your 40s and 50’s you only have about one-tenth of the estrogen that you had in your younger years. Since estrogen stimulates collagen and oil production the loss of estrogen during menopause and perimenopause can result in very dry, cracked skin and more pronounced fine and deep-set wrinkles. Facial skin begins to sag and jowls may appear as the cheeks and jawline begin to droop. This natural loss of volume begins in the 40’s and continues, resulting in pronounced lines around the mouth, thinner lips, and dark circles under the eyes. Dark spots from sun damage can appear or worsen on the hands and face.
What Are Injectable Cosmetic Procedures?
An Injectable Non Surgical Cosmetic Procedures is a cosmetic facial treatment using an FDA-approved prescription medicine to reverse or improve characteristics of the skin, add volume, reshape, and/ or reduce wrinkles, sagging skin, or dark spots. These procedures should only to be performed by a trained, certified cosmetics professional, preferably one who is a registered nurse and under the guidance of a medical doctor.
More and more women today chose to counteract the loss of facial with cosmetic procedures. At Savannah Age Management we offer a variety of cosmetic facial treatments, including injectables. The treatments we offer are done under Dr. Harry Collins’ guidance by a registered nurse with over 10 years cosmetic injectables experience using only FDA approved materials.
