While there are numerous cosmetic surgical procedures that turn back the unwanted signs of skin aging, many patients still prefer non-surgical, less invasive treatment options that are quick, much safer, and come with minimal to no downtime. Dr. Trovato thinks of it as anti-aging medicine, and there are various options depending on your individual needs.
What causes skin aging?
The skin, the body’s largest organ, can really show a person’s age. The skin ages as the body’s collagen production decreases with age and due to sun damage. Your lifestyle, stressors, genetics, and other environmental toxins also play a role in skin aging. Plus, the repeated facial movements that you make each day — to frown, squint, smile, laugh — create lines and wrinkles on the face.
What is anti-aging medicine?
There are many non-surgical treatment alternatives to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin. Dr. Trovato will recommend anti-aging treatments to specifically address various cosmetic concerns, such as mild to severe facial folds and wrinkles, fine lines between the nose and mouth and around the eyes, irregularities in facial skin tone and texture, and the loss of facial volume.

What is Anti-Aging Hormone Therapy?
Many busy professionals desire not only to ‘look’ but also ‘feel’ younger. As we age, our hormone levels change, affecting our metabolism and brain chemistry. By using personalized, proprietary protocols to rebalance hormone levels, patients look, feel, perform, and heal like a much younger version of themselves and much of the body’s aging processes are reversed.
Can Hormone Therapy be used to optimize my healing?
A custom combination of medical and nutritional therapies can be integrated into your surgical plan to accelerate healing, minimize scars, recover faster, and maximize your results.
How does HCG work?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin can be used for rapid weight loss or increasing strength and lean muscle mass, depending on how it is used and the dose that is prescribed. A thorough understanding of your medical history, physical condition, lifestyle, and goals will allow Dr. Trovato to design a regimen that is best for you.
How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® is the most popular anti-aging treatment. Year after year it continues to be the single most performed cosmetic procedure worldwide. BOTOX® uses the botulinum toxin to block the nerve messages that cause muscles to contract. When used in the facial muscles that create dynamic wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead, BOTOX® stops these wrinkles from forming. The results last four to six months.
What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels are forced exfoliation, basically. Different stength chemicals are applied to the surface of the face causing the outer layers to peel. This exposes new, younger skin beneath. Dr. Trovato and his team will recommend various peel options depending on your individual needs.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers instantly add volume to certain areas of the face. When injected beneath a wrinkle, crease, or area that has lost volume, fillers plump the area back up. Different fillers suit different areas of the face, and the results can last up to a year. Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and other substances that are naturally found in the body, so that they don’t cause reactions when injected.
How is fat grafting done?
Fat grafting involves harvesting a patient’s own fat from areas where is it unwanted — the abdomen, thighs, and hips — purifying it, and then reinjecting it back into areas that need more volume. Fat grafting effectively enhances these areas and makes them look much younger and refreshed.
