Here is when Botox and other muscle relaxing injections come to rescue

We need muscles to move, eat and laugh, but too much muscle contraction can lead to problems ranging from painful jaws and teeth grinding to all kinds of lines and wrinkles. Here is when Botox and other muscle relaxing injections come to rescue! When injected carefully into the muscles, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are capable of blocking the transmission of signals from the nerve terminals into the muscles, reducing and preventing muscle contraction in a controlled and reversible way. These medications can be used for a number of different conditions including migraines, muscle spasms, excessive sweating (also called Hyperhidrosis), TMJ […]

SculpSure vs CoolSculpting

Treatment and Time: For starters, the laser wavelength used in SculpSure is absorbed selectively by the fat cells while leaving the skin and other tissues untouched, providing precise and predictable results. Our treatments are customized for a variety of shapes and sizes, whereas with fat freezing, the treatments are limited by how much at can be […]

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is among the latest and most advanced non-invasive, non-surgical, local fat reduction and body contouring treatments. SculpSure is FDA-approved for treatment and reduction of stubborn fat in the abdomen, flanks, back, and inner/outer thighs, but can also be used in many other areas of the body as well.

Botox Rejuvenating Effects May Go Beyond Easing Lines and Wrinkles

Botox Rejuvenating Effects May Go Beyond Easing Lines and Wrinkles

A New study shows that Botox does more than just relaxing your muscles and easing out the wrinkles! To be healthy and youthful, our skin should do well in 3 key aspects: strength, pliability (ability to stretch), and elasticity (ability to recoil). Unfortunately, these characteristics diminish and degrade as we age. We commonly use Botox to relax the facial muscles, easing out the lines and wrinkles that are caused by excessive use of those muscles, but new evidence shows that Botox does more than this. According to a new study published in the Journal of American Medical Association (Bonaparte J […]

How Can We Awaken Our Body's Own Rejuvenating Potentials?

How Can We Awaken Our Body’s Own Rejuvenating Potentials?

Our body has some amazing potentials to heal and rejuvenate itself. When we accidentally cut ourselves, healing pathways are activated and the wound is quickly sealed. With a surge of growth factors, fibroblasts and other stem cells are activated to recruit new blood vessels and form new collagen and other components of youthful healthy skin. You might have noticed that the skin over a recently healed wound often looks healthier, firmer, smoother and brighter than the surrounding skin, an indicator of how our body regenerates new healthy skin during the healing process. Only if we could trick our body to do its magic to the skin everywhere without the need to suffer any wounds! The […]
