  • Fight the signs of aging

What are Neurotoxin and Xeomin®?

Neurotoxin is an injectable purified toxin that temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Throughout life, as you smile, frown, and pout, muscle activity etches lines and wrinkles into your face. Neurotoxin halts these muscle actions to reduce the appearance of these signs of aging.

Neurotoxin is FDA approved to treat:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Vertical worry lines between your eyebrows

The treatment lasts three to four months, after which you can repeat injections to maintain your look. The injections do pinch slightly, but treatment is fast and requires absolutely no downtime.

Xeomin also fights frown lines caused by continuous expressions. This injectable prescription medication blocks your body’s release of chemicals that cause these frown lines, softening your appearance and making you look younger. The medication is highly purified and contains no unnecessary proteins, giving you the most refined treatment possible. Xeomin’s effects last about three months, after which you can have additional treatments to maintain your look.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables that correct age-related volume loss in your cheeks and lips to fill in lines and restore a more youthful expression. These usually contain a compound called hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance your body produces in greater volume in your youth. As you get older, production of hyaluronic acid slows down and your skin grows drier, thinner, and less resilient.

With dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid is replaced into key areas of your face, depending on what issues you want addressed. Dermal fillers can:

  • Plump hollowed cheeks
  • Fill in thin lips
  • Reduce the appearance of lines around the eyes, lips, and nose
  • Improve the appearance of mild-to-moderate depressed scars

Discuss your goals with your provider to find out how dermal fillers can address your needs.

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical compound to your skin to cause it to slough off and reveal a fresh new look. The peels also induce the production of collagen, a natural skin-strengthening compound.

Chemical peels can help:

  • Illuminate your skin
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Unclog pores
  • Even out your skin tone by minimizing age spots
  • Smooth out rough skin texture

Ethos Integrative Medicine provides a variety of IMAGE Skincare® signature chemical peels that reverse the visible effects of external skin damage by wiping away dead, dull cells. Their iS ClinicalⓇ Prodigy peel features a proprietary blend of ingredients that address numerous skin concerns with shorter downtime and less inflammation than other aggressive peels.

When you come in for your consultation, talk to the team at Ethos Integrative Medicine to determine what type of chemical peel treatment will best target your skin’s individual needs.

What are the benefits of a facial?

At Ethos Integrative Medicine, you can take advantage of a number of different professional facials to revitalize your complexion and give you a radiant glow. A facial is a multi-step process that gives your skin the care it deserves so you look your best.

During a facial, the technician cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes your skin to promote a clear, well-hydrated complexion. You’ll also get information on the best ways to care for your skin.
