Your skin plays a critical role in shielding you from the outside world, which also means it takes the brunt of the damage. From exposure to the elements — such as sun and wind — to battling the bacteria all around you, your skin has done its job well over the years.
However, those efforts ultimately begin to take their toll. Over time, your skin’s ability to repair itself and bounce back becomes increasingly difficult.
Now add in the fact that your collagen and elastin production begins to wind down as your hormones (namely estrogen) wane with age.
To top it all off, gravity steps in and puts the exclamation point on aging skin. As your skin loses its elasticity, gravity takes over, and your skin begins to droop and sag.
There are measures you can take to slow its progression and even turn back the hands of time to some extent. To that end, Dr. Jones offers several anti-aging services, including:
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, specifically the frown lines between your brows, the lines on your forehead, and the crow’s feet around your eyes. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that contract to form these lines.
Dr. Jones delivers key nutrients -- such as vitamin B, vitamin C, and amino acids -- directly into your bloodstream, giving your skin cells a boost and allowing them to regenerate faster.
Dr. Jones offers numerous skin care products that help hydrate and rejuvenate your skin, including Obagi® and SkinMedica®. Each of these professional lines of skin care products contains specialized formulas that can erase years from your appearance.
The results of a Botox treatment are both immediate and gradual. Typically, two to three days after your injections is when the Botox is in full effect. These results usually last up to four months.
When it comes to vitamin therapy, you’ll notice results almost immediately. The therapy not only leaves you looking great, but it also makes you feel great.
The skin care products that Dr. Jones offers provide ongoing benefits as you use them.
