REFRESH YOUR LOOK WITH BOTOX® TREATMENTS
Botox® is a non-surgical injection that is popularly used to temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet and thick folds in the neck.
Botox® works by blocking nerve impulses, which temporarily paralyzes wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a fresher, smoother appearance to the skin. It also blocks the nerve impulse that triggers muscle hyperactivity. Excessive sweating is another problem for which Botox® is an effective treatment.
Each treatment generally lasts up to 6 months, at which point further injections may be used as long as you are responding to treatment.
REFRESH WITH A VITALIZE PEEL®
The Vitalize (chemical) Peel® involves the use of solutions such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to temporarily improve and smooth the texture of skin by removing its damaged outer layers. AHAs, such as glycolic or fruit acids, can be used on specific body regions but is most common in helping those with acne scarring, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Chemical peels can also be used to treat areas of dry skin and even to control acne.
SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS WITH JUVÉDERM®
When you want to look as young as you feel, a Juvéderm® treatment may be the way to accomplish that. This non-surgical cosmetic enhancement is easy and instant. It reverses the signs of aging by smoothing wrinkles and restoring volume. It also can enhance your lips and cheeks. Made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring sugar, Juvéderm® mixes with the water in your skin to instantly smooth lines and wrinkles. The process is simple enough that you can be treated, then continue with the rest of your day.
SOFT LIFT™: A COMBINED APPROACH TO FACIAL CARE
With each passing decade, the skin on our faces undergoes texture changes, develops droopiness and loses volume. Cosmetic doctors have learned that sometimes the best approach to improving your facial appearance is to combine two proven non-surgical forms of enhancement: Botox® and Juvéderm®. When the two are combined, the process is called Soft Lift™. With this approach, Botox® treats the upper facial lines including crow’s feet and forehead lines while Juvéderm® treats the volume loss and fold in the middle and lower face.
VOLUMA: A GREAT WAY TO RESTORE A FRESHER, YOUNGER LOOK
As your face ages, sunken cheeks become more common. Juvéderm® Voluma® offers a solution. This new smooth, long-lasting filler is formulated to restore deep volume where it’s most needed – around the cheekbones and in the chin. Because the middle of the face is one of the first areas to show aging, Juvéderm® Voluma® is a great way to restore a fresher younger look. It will smooth the mid-face, fill in sunken areas around the cheeks and restore contour to the chin.
