BOTOX® is a neuromodulator that is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment. Neuromodulators serve to block the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscle, thereby limiting muscle activity (i.e. a muscle relaxant).
This ultimately helps to improve and/or prevent the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles associated with aging cosmetically.
Dermal fillers are made up of a naturally occurring compound, hyaluronic acid, that is injected under the skin to replace volume loss due to aging. During the aging process and continual exposure to environmental stressors such as the sun, pollution, and smoking, our natural hyaluronic acid levels will gradually decrease. Dermal filler serves to replace this, providing a full, youthful, and contoured look.
This treatment can smooth lines around the mouth and nose, enhance size and shape of lips, restore tear troughs (adding volume under the eyes), reduce crow’s feet and laugh lines, volumize cheeks, smooth and contour the jawline, fill temple areas, and non-surgical rhinoplasty.
A thread lift is a cosmetic procedure used to lift and tighten sagging skin in the face. It’s a minimally invasive technique that aims to produce a more youthful appearance by addressing signs of aging, such as sagging skin and wrinkles.
During a thread lift, a cosmetic nurse inserts biocompatible threads under the skin using a fine needle or cannula. These threads have small cones or barbs along their length, which grip the skin and are used to lift and reposition it once they’re in place.
The threads create a subtle but noticeable lift, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, which can enhance skin elasticity over time.
