What is Micro-Botox?

If you think that Botox injections are just for facial wrinkles and lines, it’s time to rediscover the anti-aging powers of this injection; more specifically, it’s time to discover Micro-Botox!

This innovative anti-aging treatment is brand-new to the States, yet it already promises to be an extremely popular choice with clients who want superior skin rejuvenation without the “frozen” look.

Let’s take a closer look at Micro-Botox and what you can expect from your treatment.

What is Micro-Botox?

Micro-Botox refers to a treatment that combines the anti-aging powers of Botox with skin-hydrating serums. These elements are mixed together to create a concoction that’s then injected into the surface areas of the skin. This is different from traditional Botox treatments, which are injected directly into the facial muscle in order to paralyze it. As Micro-Botox only penetrates the top dermis layer, this means patients won’t have to be scared of that tell-tale frozen look that often accompanies improperly injected Botox.

Why Should I Get It?

Micro-Botox is designed to help fade wrinkles, lines, and even help with acne scars – all within the top layer of the dermis. Micro-Botox can be applied to the […]

What is the Difference Between Botox and Fillers?

You’ve heard about Botox. You’ve heard about fillers. You know that both types of injections can help you look younger. Trouble is, you haven’t heard too much about the differences between the two types of anti-aging injections. That’s a problem, especially if you aren’t exactly sure what treatment you should opt for.

So what’s the difference between Botox and fillers? And how do you know which anti-aging treatment is right for you? View Our Cases

First, let’s begin by exploring the main difference between the two anti-aging treatments: their active ingredients. On the one hand, Botox contains botulinum toxin type A, a type of safe neurotoxin that’s used to block the brain’s nerve signals, which tricks facial muscles into relaxing. As a result, the skin’s surface becomes smoother, which helps erase fine lines and forehead furrows.

On the other hand, dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, usually contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural compound that’s renowned for retaining up to 10x its own weight in water molecules. HA helps plump out key facial areas that have lost significant volume as a result of the aging process. Not all dermal fillers are the same; some contain a […]

What Signs of Aging Do Botox Injections Target?

Interested in learning more about anti-aging injections – but not sure which one is right for you?

It’s no wonder: Lately, it seems as though there are more anti-aging injections available than ever before. From dermal fillers to Botox, there’s a treatment for almost every type of aging symptom out there. The only problem is, how do you know which injection treats your specific aging symptoms?

More specifically, what signs of aging do Botox injections target? VIEW OUR GALLERY

Botox is an FDA-approved anti-aging treatment that uses its active ingredient – botulinum toxin type A – to smooth away the appearance of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. The botulinum toxin (sounds scary, but it’s perfectly safe!) blocks the nerve signals that are sent by the brain to the corresponding muscles. By blocking the nerve signals, the muscles are tricked into remaining relatively motionless.

As a result, the skin above the muscle area becomes much more relaxed, which helps alleviate the appearance of deep lines caused by brow furrowing, squinting, and more.

Botox is perhaps one of the most popular anti-aging injections, and for good reason: it has an almost-immediate effect on […]

Will My Botox Results Look Natural?

By now, you probably know that Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging injectables on the market today. It’s no wonder – even when it was first introduced in the late 90s, Botox’s ability to smooth away the appearance of deep furrow lines on the forehead and around the eyes took the world by storm.

But with its rising popularity came another observation: When improperly used, Botox could lead to an unnatural, “frozen” appearance. From reality television to celebrity gossip magazines, it became all-too-easy to spot who went a bit too overboard with Botox injections. VIEW OUR GALLERY

Perhaps that’s why so many people are a bit nervous about their first Botox treatment. They want to harness the injectable’s ability to take years off of their appearance, but they don’t want to look “obvious” about it. Perhaps that’s why the most popular question about Botox tends to be: “Will my Botox results look natural?”

The answer largely depends on the person who is delivering the injection. Quite frankly, an inexperienced injectionist may end up injecting too much Botox, which means you may end up looking unnaturally frozen. That’s why it’s always recommended […]
