Botox:
Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, is the most common non-surgical procedure cosmetic procedure on the market for 19 years and running. Over 4 million Botox procedures have taken place since 2015. Botox isn’t only used by women. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons Reports that Botox treatment for men has increased by 337% since 2000.

In 2002, the FDA approved cosmetic Botox for dermatological three purposes: in-between the eyebrows, the lines around the eyes, and armpit sweating. If properly administered by a qualified, educated professional, Botox can be safely used for other procedures such as correcting post-nasal drip, decreasing skin oiliness, and correcting eyebrow symmetry.

Excessive sweating treatment is a popular use of Botox. To prevent or reduce sweating, Botox is injected into sweat glands, relaxing the muscles, and thus slowing the sweat production process. Treatment areas are not just limited to underarms, additional areas include hands, scalp, under the breasts, or even butt. Another use of Botox is to assist with migraine headaches. When utilized effectively, Botox can immediately reduce the severity and duration of migraine headaches.

Botox treatments are temporary and can be completed in under 30 minutes, lasting an average of 3-4 months. Schedule your consultation today to learn if Botox is right for you.

Injections & Dermal Fillers:
Injections and Dermal fillers both rejuvenate facial skin, but which is right for you?

Injections are dermatological treatments used to temporarily paralyze muscles and prevent muscle contractions, providing the look of smoother skin. There are three FDA-approved injectable neurotoxins available in the US market, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Botox, short for Botulinum toxin, is the most recognizable treatment name. It is best used to reduce facial expression is areas like frown lines, crow’s feet, and between the eyebrows.

Dermal fillers are short to long-term temporary treatments that are administered through small injections on specific areas of the face. Various types of facial fillers are available; each is designed for one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and soft-tissue volume restoration. Some well-known dermal fillers are Juvederm and Restylane. Juvederm, made of hyaluronic acid gel, increases volume and hydrations in the skin. It’s commonly used to correct wrinkling or folds in the skin. Restylane is a biodegradable gel also comprised of hyaluronic acid that improves skin volume, best benefiting wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.
