Aesthetic medicine is an industry that combines art and science. It’s helping people by addressing concerns like collagen loss, bone structure atrophy and loss of jaw definition. What are the biggest trends and most popular procedures and products? This week we talk to Family Nurse Practitioner and Founder of Radiant Medspa and Wellness, Allison Woodworth.
HRT for women is very nuanced and it takes years for a practitioner to refine their skills. Allison Woodworth, RN, MSN, FNP-C
Listen to the full episode: At the top of the show, we got some background on Allison and her path to her career in aesthetic medicine and age management. In terms of the breakdown of her patients, it is 80% women and 20% men, but the number of men continues to increase. Men are interested in procedures like dermal fillers that help to improve the jawline by sharpening it or replacing lost volume. We then discussed neuromodulators like Botox which are used to control the effects of muscular activity in the face, which often lead to creasing and wrinkles. Botox works to relax the muscle groups, and is something that can even be employed to prevent the onset of wrinkles. Allison said, “If you try to start after the fact, it takes a lot longer for the crease to go away.” Allison also shared information on other neuromodulators, Xeomin and Dysport. What the right one for you? She says patients have found Dysport to work faster and not be as stiff as Botox so it allows you to maintain natural facial expression. “The point isn’t to have no facial movement, it’s to have no wrinkles.”

We went onto to discuss dermal fillers and how they combat the yearly loss of 1% of collagen from the age of 20, pain control and what your practitioner has to do with it. Towards the end of the show we talked about a new molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat under the chin. We also discussed HRT for women and the overprescribing issue in the medical industry right now. Our facial expressions form lines, creases and wrinkles, and paired with the loss of facial collagen-this causes bone and fat pad atrophy. Neuromodulators like Botox, Xeomin and Dysport relax very specific muscle groups and can be employed to sculpt the face again. Dermal fillers are also effective in controlling the effects of skin aging. These procedures are meant to enhance natural beauty and masculinity, not leave your face looking stiff.
