Anti-Aging Q & A

What anti-aging skin treatments are available?

Aging skin shows lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and age spots. It can lose laxity, so you get a sagging neck and jowls. Some people also find their skin texture becomes rough and they lose volume in areas such as their cheeks and lips.

At Quality of Life Medical & Research Center, you can combat these issues with a variety of treatments:

  • Chemical peels slough off old, dull layers of skin to reveal fresh, renewed cells
  • Microdermabrasion uses a diamond tip wand to exfoliate your face and create a brighter look
  • Dermaplaning uses a scalpel to shave off the fine hair that dulls your complexion and reveal a smoother, more radiant face
  • Facials rejuvenate your skin and provide extra moisturizing treatment for dull, aging skin

Talk to the staff about which treatments are best for your aesthetic goals.

How do Botox and dermal fillers combat the signs of aging?

Botox® offers temporary wrinkle reduction by reducing muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles to form on your face. It’s FDA-approved for use around the eyes and on the forehead.

Dermal fillers, particularly Juvederm® and Radiesse®, contain hyaluronic acid. This natural substance adds hydration to plump your skin and fills in hollow contours, fine lines, and wrinkles. Dermal fillers temporarily improve the look of such issues as:

  • Thinning lips
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Smile lines
  • Hollowed cheeks

Botox provides results that last 3-4 months. Dermal fillers offer a revitalized look for up to 18 months. Regular retreatments allow you to maintain your youthful look.

What anti-aging treatments are available for my body?

At Quality of Life Medical & Research Center, you can address common issues of aging that include:

  • Spider veins
  • Stretch marks
  • Cellulite

Laser treatments zap irregular veins and marks, while Cellfina® treats the structural cause of cellulite to give you smooth skin for up to three years.

What anti-aging hormone therapies are available?

Dr. McGettigan is a certified BioTe® provider. BioTe is a form of bioidentical hormone therapy that is inserted just under your skin to provide a constant supply of hormones and balance out your levels.

Declining hormone levels in men and women contribute to the experience of aging, including unwanted weight gain, diminished energy levels, decreased libido and sexual function, and problems with concentration and memory. When you receive hormone therapy, these symptoms disappear and you feel like yourself again.
