Multiple factors influence how your face ages, including genetics, sun exposure, weight loss, lifestyle choices like smoking and nutrition, and hormonal changes. Age-related hormonal fluctuations and weight loss later in life significantly affect the facial aging process, causing volume loss, laxity, lines, and wrinkles. That’s why Rejuvime Medical offers aesthetic treatments such as BOTOX® and dermal filler injections as part of our overall approach to wellness.

How Do Hormones Affect Facial Aging?

One of the primary hormones involved in facial aging is estrogen, particularly in women. Estrogen is crucial in maintaining skin hydration, fat, bone, collagen production, and overall skin thickness. As women enter menopause, estrogen levels decline, leading to a decrease in collagen production and skin thickness, as well as fat and bone loss. This contributes to sunken or flattened facial contours, plus the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, particularly around the eyes, mouth, and jawline.

In men, declining testosterone levels contribute similarly to facial aging. Testosterone plays a role in maintaining muscle mass and overall skin tone. As testosterone levels diminish, muscle atrophy may occur, leading to a loss of facial volume and definition and the formation of wrinkles and folds.

Environmental factors such as exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can accelerate the skin’s aging process by breaking down collagen and elastin and causing age spots and uneven tone.

Creating a More Youthful Appearance

To combat the signs of aging caused by hormonal changes and other factors, both women and men often turn to nonsurgical treatments that don’t require downtime.

At Rejuvime Medical, these include:

BOTOX & Dysport®

BOTOX and Dysport are neurotoxins, a category of anti-wrinkle injectables. They work by limiting the movement of muscles used for certain expressions. BOTOX and Dysport minimize dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers

Another popular anti-aging treatment is dermal filler injections. Fillers like the JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® product lines help restore lost volume and improve facial contours. These injectable gels, composed of hyaluronic acid, can replenish lost volume in areas such as the cheeks, lips, under eyes, and nasolabial folds. By restoring volume and structure to the face, dermal fillers can soften wrinkles and restore a more youthful appearance.

Hair Loss and Skin Treatments

Along with aging skin, hair loss is another aesthetic condition we treat with prescription medications such as dutasteride or finasteride. Our hormone specialists also use medications to improve the appearance of your skin, including treatments for adult acne.
