Four Ways to Recapture Your Youthful Glow
- Botox – Muscle contractions from frowning, squinting and raising our eyebrows, along with sun damage and collagen reduction, can etch lines deep into our skin. Botox, the only injectable approved by the FDA to reduce facial muscle activity, helps erase them in just one 10-minute session. Because Dr. Jacobs is the number one provider of Botox in the region, she can deliver a transformation that’s subtle, yet stunning, taking years off your appearance with natural-looking results.
- Kybella – If you’ve always had a double chin, you may notice it becoming more prominent in your profile as a decline in collagen and elastin causes the skin on your neck to droop. However, just two to four injections of Kybella can dissolve the fat cells beneath your chin. And once they’re gone, they can no longer store the little pockets of fat that can make you look heavier and older than you are.
- Voluma – As we age, those healthy apple cheeks we spent our 20s bronzing and blushing begin to deflate and flatten, causing our entire face to sag. As the first physician in the St. Louis area to offer the Juvéderm Voluma dermal filler, Dr. Jacobs can restore the volume you’ve lost while lifting and contouring the cheek area for a more youthful appearance. Patients report looking up to five years younger after treatment, and results last up to two years.
- PRP Facial – Collagen is essential for smooth, supple skin. But once we hit our middle 30s, this essential protein breaks down, making our skin thinner and looser. With a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial, Dr. Jacobs’ staff takes a small sample of your blood and extracts the plasma using a centrifuge. This naturally-produced youth serum is then injected into your skin using microneedling to kick collagen production back into action. While it sounds excruciating, the procedure is pain-free, and you’ll see radiant results in just a few days.
