Importance of Hand Rejuvenation

Importance of Hand Rejuvenation

Face is often the first point of attention when we meet someone, and it’s no wonder why we spend so much time and attention on face rejuvenation, but many people forget how quickly the eyes roll towards the hands, and… more often than not, we are in for an unpleasant surprise! The truth is, our hands are exposed to the same harsh environmental factors that our face is and worse, but while we all know about the importance of sun protection and treatments using lasers, IPL, Botox, Dysport and various fillers to repair and rejuvenate the damaged skin and aged face, we often forget about the hands. The result can be quite shocking: We all have […]

With all the talk about losing weight, eating too much fat or not enough protein, many restaurants have began gearing their menus toward a healthier way of eating. More people are becoming conscious about what they eat; therefore, finding items on the menus of their favorite restaurants is no longer difficult.

Here is a list of some […]

4 Reasons Why Botox or Dysport Do Not Work

4 Reasons Why Botox or Dysport Do Not Work

Botox is a wonderful medication and an integral part of any effective anti-aging and whole-face rejuvenation strategy. For years, injection of Botulinum toxin type A (including Botox and Dysport) have remained the number one non-surgical cosmetic medical procedure in the US and around the world – even more popular than dermal fillers, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion or IPL! But being so popular does not mean that Botox and Dysport will always work and yield the desired results. Here, we look at some of the reasons why Botox or Dysport fail to do the magic to smooth out the fine lines and wrinkles! But first, […]

Attention Deficit Disorder & Your Child’s Diet

Attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are neurological conditions characterized by developmentally unbalanced levels of attention, concentration, activity, distractibility, and impulsivity. Glucose is the brain’s main source of energy. With ADD and ADHD, brain regions that normally inhibit impulses and control attention utilize less glucose; this decreased activity in the brain leads to inattention. Iron and Zinc deficiency cause abnormal activity in the brain which is another implication of ADD/ADHD in children. Also, children with ADD/ADHD may have low levels of certain fatty acids (including EPA and DHA) in their bodies. Most ADD/ADHD cases are identified by age […]

During your consultation, we will discuss your specific needs and beauty goals to determine an injection schedule that is right for you. BOTOX works by blocking nerve impulses to the affected muscles. This helps the muscles in the injected area to relax, leaving you with a reduced appearance of wrinkles in the treatment area.
