Enjoy wrinkle reduction with cosmetic injectables
Many adult men and women over the age of 30 often become more aware of the changes in their facial skin.

Everyone wants to maintain their youthful appearance, but the graceful signs of aging can sneak up before we even realize it! Thanks to advances in the field of medicine and aesthetics, professionals can help patients slow the signs of aging without the need for surgical intervention. That can be done with cosmetic injectables, sometimes known as “wrinkle reducers.” Aleta Sloan is a clinician at United Medical and Aesthetics in Wilmington, North Carolina, who can educate patients on how to smooth the signs of aging on the facial skin to turn back the hands of time!
Wrinkle reducer options
At United Medical and Aesthetics, Aleta Sloan is pleased to provide neurotoxins and dermal fillers to combat the unwanted signs of aging.
- Neurotoxins. Neurotoxins such as Botox and Xeomin and Jueveau are popular choices for patients hoping to smooth out the appearance of fine wrinkles and lines. They are commonly used to target crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and the “11” lines that can form between the eyebrows. Xeomin, Jueveau, and Dysport, is very similar to Botox, and all used at UM&A and can be used to achieve comparable and amazing results in the experience hands of Aleta. The main difference between these aesthetic injectables is really in the hands of the injector. They all work, but vary in the amount they spread, how they are stored, how they are reconstituted, but Aleta believes it’s the injectors hands, talent and training.
- Dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are another reliable option for patients who want to achieve a more youthful appearance without surgery. These injectables are best used to add volume to areas of the face that may have become hollow or sunken with age and bone loss. Common areas treated with dermal fillers include the cheeks, jaw, chin, under-eye area, lips, and even the neck. They include brands such as Juvéderm, Versa, Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptura and all are used in the proper area for the patients individual needs and goals. They are made of mostly hyaluronic acid and proven safe when injected properly.
