Once you’ve Botox’ed away the forehead lines and crows feet, and filled those smile lines with a little Juvederm or Restylane, there’s still one dead give away sign of aging, thinning or drooping ear lobes.
Have no fear – “eartox” is here! Plastic surgeons around the country are now using fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, and occasionally even Botox to take years off the ears. Dr. Jon Mendelsohn, Medical Director of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center is licensed to train other physicians in the fine art of Botox, has been using this technique for several years.
Says Dr. Jon Mendelsohn, “As fillers become more mainstream and continue to grow in popularity, we are beginning to find additional non-surgical uses for these products for everything from excessive sweating known as hyperhidrosis to migraine headaches. Although Eartox has recently hit the national news, I have actually been using fillers on my patients’ ears for quite a few years.”
He adds, “As people age, the tissue in the ear lobe thins out tremendously, they often develop creases and wrinkles, which can be a tell tale sign of one’s age.
