If you’ve ever used Botox to erase those pesky wrinkles along your forehead or between your brows, then you know it is a reliable and effective anti-aging treatment. But did you know that Botox actually has some creative and unusual applications to enhance your appearance beyond your wrinkles? The following three ideas can help you harness the power of Botox in unique ways.
A Quick Introduction to Botox
Botox is a purified neurotoxin protein that relaxes the muscles responsible for contracting the skin.

However, it is possible to use the relaxing properties of Botox for other purposes as well. Continue reading “3 Unique Things You Can Do with Botox”

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hand rejuvenation is growing in popularity as people realize how gently and efficiently it restores a youthful appearance to the hands.
How Does IPL Rejuvenate the Hands?
This high-powered technology uses a versatile hand piece to deliver potent broad-spectrum pulses of light that heal a number of skin conditions ranging from sun spots to hyper pigmentation and broken blood vessels.

Changing the size and shape of your buttocks used to require a risky and expensive procedure that could not promise successful results. All of that has changed thanks to the Brazilian butt lift. Using nothing but the fat tissue already on your body, the Brazilian butt lift distributes small fat droplets throughout your buttocks in order to enhance its shape, size, and overall appearance. It only takes a few injections to finally have a sexy, youthful figure you can flaunt on the beach all summer.
How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Done?
A Brazilian butt lift is surprisingly simple. It begins by identifying areas on your body that contain extra fat, like your thighs, flanks, and abdomen. A gentle liposuction treatment is used to harvest viable fat cells in those areas. This means that you begin your Brazilian butt lift procedure by slimming and contouring the biggest problem areas on your body. The harvested fat is then purified using a centrifuge. Tiny cannulas are used to inject and distribute small droplets of high quality fat into the buttocks area. Continue reading “Get Beach Ready with the Brazilian Butt Lift”

If you opt for this filler, you can fill out hollow cheekbones and reverse the appearance of sunken skin. Continue reading “Turn Back the Hands of Time with These Three Cosmetic Treatments”
Whether you call them lipstick lines, smoker’s lines, or vertical lip lines, those wrinkles above your top lip are not your friend. Sun damage, loss of collagen, and the general process of aging all contribute to a loss in the skin’s elasticity. If you further overstimulate the muscles in your upper lip region, perhaps from whistling, drinking through straws, or smoking, those lines can become much deeper.
But don’t worry, because modern cosmetic technology makes it possible to banish those lip lines and enjoy smooth, wrinkle-free skin. Dermal fillers, neuromodulators, and Ultherapy are all excellent treatment options that provide unique benefits.
