Aesthetics Q & A

What are Botox® and other neuromodulators?

Botox® and other neuromodulators help to reduce the appearance of unwanted facial creases and wrinkles, such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and the frown lines between your eyebrows. 

The repeated muscle contractions your face makes normally cause wrinkles, as does the loss of elasticity in your skin due to aging. These neuromodulators minimize your muscle contractions, which smooth out your skin and relax your face. This temporary paralysis of muscle activity leads to a rejuvenated, youthful appearance.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers help to minimize the appearance of pre-existing facial lines and restore the fullness in your face. There are multiple ways that dermal fillers can help reduce the signs of aging, including:

  • Softening wrinkles
  • Reducing shallow contours
  • Improving the appearance of scars
  • Reconstructing contour deformities in your face
  • Decreasing under-eye hollows
  • Plumping up your lips

What other anti-aging treatments are available

Holding on to your youth can seem daunting. However, Dr. Kodama can help you feel and look your best. She offers the following anti-aging methods to help trick your biological clock.

In addition to anti-aging management, Dr. Kodama provides lifestyle counseling to ensure that you're taking the best care of your body, inside and out. This includes developing a plan for healthy eating, regular exercise, and encouraging a healthy mind-body balance with a regular meditation practice.

How can bioidentical hormone replacement therapy help with anti-aging?

Hormones play a large role in your daily life. They affect everything from your sexual and reproductive function to your energy level, and even the way your body metabolizes its food. Restoring low hormone levels through customized hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help you feel and look years younger. HRT can improve your energy level, muscle tone, and bone health. HRT can also boost your sexual well-being and your emotional and mental health.

What is telomerase activator 65 (TA-65)?

Telomeres make up an essential part of the DNA in your cells, essentially affecting how you age. Telomere length can indicate your overall health status on a biological, cellular level. Having short telomeres can accelerate the natural aging process, leading to cellular dysfunction.

TA-65 is a natural, plant-based compound which can help maintain or rebuild telomeres that might diminish as you grow older. TA-65 activates the enzyme telomerase to slow down and possibly reverse age and lifestyle-related telomere aging.

Dr. Kodama provides a variety of aesthetic and medical tools to help you fight back against aging. She can help customize a plan for you to look and feel your best. To get started with anti-aging treatments, call or schedule an appointment online today.
