One of the important secrets to having beautiful skin is taking care of the issues you can control getting adequate sleep, drinking plenty of water and finding the time to exercise. What many of us find, however, is that this quest for a beautiful complexion can be frustrating and often times, out of our control. Genetics plays an important role in how your skin appears, and stress can significantly impact your appearance by causing breakouts, blemishes and dry skin. If cosmetic surgery is not the best plan for you at this time, there are alternatives available to you, combining laser treatments, skin care treatments and injections. The combinations of these services will result in a better and younger looking you.
We are each confronted by the media with hundreds of alternatives to helping improve our appearance and the quality of our skin. The answer to this lies in securing a professional, medical-grade skin care program. As part of this program, injectables, including; Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, Juvederm and Restylane are continuing to grow in popularity and work well to eliminate facial lines and wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic, and Dysport will smooth frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet. Restylane consists of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already present in your body, working to create volume in the marionette lines in the nasolabia folds, volume in the lips, and enhancing cheekbones. Juvederm, another FDA approved dermal filler is a safe and effective method to temporarily erase facial wrinkles, smile lines and skin folds.
Injectables, coupled with other services including non-surgical skin tightening and laser hair removal can greatly improve your appearance. The use of the latest and most effective Laser system available successfully removes unwanted hair from all areas and can be used on all skin types.
