With the day to day pressures and busy schedules, sometimes we just need a moment to unwind and perhaps a little pick-me-up. Here are some common grab-n-go cosmetic procedures that can keep you looking your best and maybe put a little pep into your step.
They are as follows:
Injectable Fillers: Good for smoothing lines, wrinkles or folds. Used to diminish nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, fill in under eye hollowness, plump lips, cheeks and hands. Such fillers are Radiesse ®, Juvederm ® XC, Restylane ®, Perlane ® and Belotero ®.
Neuromodulators: What’s a Neuromodulator? Botox ®, Dysport ® and Xeomin ® are used to relax hard creases between the brow, crowsfeet and forehead wrinkles.
Facial Volumizers: A little different from fillers, these injectables are used to bring volume to the face providing amazingly natural results. Adding volume where lost to areas such as the cheeks, temples and jawline can make patients look up to 10 years younger. Volumizers are Sculptra Aesthetic ® and Juvederm XC Voluma ®.
Chemical or Laser Peels: Taking off the top layer of dead skin cells with a chemical or laser peel allows the fresher skin cells to emerge, giving the skin a youthful, rejuvenated look.
CoolSculpting: Reducing a body bulge like in the abdomen, waistline, back, inner or outer thighs can’t get any easier than this non-invasive option. CoolSculpting uses patented cooling technology to freeze the fat cells. Within 3 months, your body will eliminate them as waste and leave you with up to a 25% contoured reduction. No downtime, no sutures and no surgery needed with this option.
