Botox is a muscle relaxer and the most commonly performed, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in North America. Botox comes in the form of a purified protein and is traditionally injected into facial muscles, causing them to relax rather than contract. Muscle contractions are what cause the lines, or wrinkles, on our faces.Botox, through a process called cosmetic denervation, is injected into muscles that tense up and cause wrinkles. Botox blocks some of the transmitters in the muscles, preventing them from contracting and essentially causing them to relax.Botox treatments require just one 5-15 minute appointment, and results are almost immediate. The effects of Botox usually last 3-4 months.
The biggest difference in Xeomin’s formula is that it doesn’t use certain proteins that Botox and Dysport use. Those proteins make Botox and Dysport ineffective in patients after a while since their bodies develop antibodies against the formula. For this reason, Xeomin is a great option for long-time Botox or Dysport users who need a new solution. Also, because of its formula, Xeomin doesn’t need to be refrigerated and some patients report that injections tend to be more comfortable.
Intravenous Nutrition Therapy is a form of IV treatment that supplies the body with necessary vitamins and minerals to replenish deficiencies or aid in healing. Nutrients are delivered through a liquid solution from an IV line, PICC line, or port. The IV drip delivers nutrients directly to the bloodstream.
IV vitamin treatments can be used to improve skin health, relieve stress, and provide a general sense of well-being. Every day, the body is slammed with toxins that come from food, drinks, and the air. While human systems are designed to eliminate these toxins, it becomes increasingly difficult to do so in the face of stress, caring for homes and family members, and going to work. Overload commonly occurs, producing such symptoms as diarrhea, fatigue, and runny nose. These serve as signs the body needs a little help, and vitamin infusions can provide relief and rejuvenation.
Dysport is for those who would like to reduce the wrinkles between the eyebrows, or on the forehead, and who want to maintain a natural look. In just a single ten to twenty minute treatment, If you have “dynamic” wrinkles, such as those that form when facial muscles contract repeatedly, forming creases across the forehead, at the outer corners of your eyes (crow’s feet) and between the eyebrows, A small injection of Dysport in just the right places weakens those muscles, allowing them to relax, and greatly reduces the wrinkle.

Juvederm injectable gel is a smooth-consistency, synthetic gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvederm works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds. It is used most effectively for those wrinkles and folds in the lower third of your face, like “laugh lines,” “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds), and “marionette lines” (oral commissures).
In the Juvederm injection process, the gel is eased under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis — the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis — to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. The procedure takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate, with minimal recovery or downtime, and last six to twelve months.
