Facial Aesthetics  //  the science of graceful aging

Face is the only part of our bodies that is always naked. It also has the most underlying muscles pulling it in different directions. As we mature, prolonged sun exposure and repeated mobility of the skin lead to appearance of unwelcome lines and wrinkles.

While there is a lot to be said for ageing gracefully, overwhelming majority of men and women consider facial makeup, hair removal and various skin rejuvenation treatments as socially acceptable, and even required behavior to enhance their appearance.

I'm of the opinion that you should always look as young as you feel and invite you to consider the following advances in facial aesthetics as addition to your current anti-ageing regiment. After all, grace is more than skin deep.

Botox® Cosmetic

What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Produced by the bacterium C. botulinum, Botox is a purified form of naturally occurring neurotoxin that is officially authorized by Food and Drug Administration for treatment of facial wrinkles.

Contrary to common misconception Botox is NOT a poison. Just like alcohol, and oxygen it is a toxin, and can be harmful only in large quantities, similar to salt, aspirin and even sun light. A lethal dose of Botox would consist of over 2500 units, which is over Botox treatmennt options100 times more than a recommended dose per area.

How does it work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is introduced into muscles of the face to reduce their activity and prevent further deepening of obvious, unsightly wrinkles such as 'frown' lines, crow's feet, etc. By relaxing selected muscles, the skin is allowed to recover from repeated creasing and folding caused by them. Long-term, regular use of the product obtains best results and often patients will note increasing duration of the effect.

Are there any side-effects?

BOTOX has a record of safety in over 20 years of clinical use. Side effects are commonly restricted to bruising and slight tenderness at the site of injection. Improper placement of Botox can also lead to effect on the wrong muscle group. The side effect of Botox can be controlled if it is administered by a professional and when appropriate care is taken – pre and post treatment.

How long do the effects last?

Visible results have been proven to last up to 4 months. After the Botox® treatment, the product is naturally metabolized by your body, and is completely gone within 6 months. So if you don’t like it, you can welcome those wrinkles back with no strings attached.

With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why BOTOX® Cosmetic has been chosen by millions of men and women.

Top Dermal Fillers

What is Juvéderm?

JUVÉDERM® is a product manufactured by company called Allergan and is most commonly used to lift, fill or smooth away wrinkles and sagging lines in the lower part of the face. With immediately noticeable natural results that typically last for up to one year.

How does it work?

As part of the aging process our skin continuously loses naturally occuring substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This allows for loss of skin support and resultant unwanted lines and wrinkles.

Introduction of dermal fillers underneath selective facial features is a safe and effective way to replace the lost skin volume and structure. Treatment typically takes about 30 minutes with immediate results and minimal post-operative discomfort.

In addition, multiple research has shown that dermal fillers have a tendency to stimulate natural collagen production, rejuvenating the skin which results in a natural-looking youthful appearance.

Why Dermal Fillers?

Dermal facial fillers allow for a subtle enhancement of your facial features quickly, safely, effetively and less costly than plastic surgery. They are a reasonable answer to your facial aesthetic needs.
