A little line here, a sag or wrinkle there-your body may be giving away your age or even making you look older than you really are. Your eyes, neck, and hands could be revealing your secrets. We are here to tackle those trouble areas with in-office treatments and at home care.
The eyes are one of the first features that get noticed. They are also one of the first areas of the face to show the signs of aging.
What we can do: Botox is the only FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines (as well as frown lines between the brows). Receiving Botox injections in the crow’s feet will minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, causing a more awake youthful appearance.
What you can do: Apply an active eye cream to help smooth fine lines and hydrate this sensitive area. We recommend TNS Eye Repair from Skin Medica.
It has numerous active ingredients like the TNS growth factor, Vitamins A, C, and E–all to help combat the signs of aging. It also has boron nitride, which optimizes the optical diffusion effect of light, thereby lessening the visibility of dark circles and discoloration.

Signs of aging creep up on us in the form of age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin elasticity. Our necks are no different. In order for us to maintain a youthful neck, we need to remember to address that area just as often as our faces.
What we can do: The SkinPen treatment helps stimulate collagen production as well as addresses fine lines and wrinkles of the neck. Botox is injected along the lower jaw line to rebalance the underlying muscles, providing a lifting effect in the neck and jaw area.
What you can do: When applying all your medical grade skincare products, be sure to bring the product down to your neck, to ensure that your neck is getting the great benefits your face is. Don’t forget to apply your sunscreen there as well.
Our hands are almost always exposed to the sun, and it’s difficult to keep sunscreen throughout life’s daily routines. The skin on our hands is typically thinner than the skin on the rest of the body, so keeping hands hydrated and protected is key to youthful skin.
What we can do: All skin thins with age, but the hands have very little fat.
Without plump tissue underneath, the skin tends to look paper-thin more quickly, giving hands a sunken, hollow look. IPL will address sun damage, vascular lesions, and freckles on the hands, leaving them more youthful and radiant. Radiesse fills in hollows throughout the hands to make them appear more youthful.
What you can do: Instead of putting product on your fingertips to apply to your face, neck and décolletage, apply to the backs of hands and use the back of your hands as your applicator for all your fancy skincare products. When applying your sunscreen to your face and body, always remember the backs of your hands. Refer to the video below to learn how to get more out of all your products.
