Botox is an injectable treatments for dynamic wrinkles and lines caused by the contracting of muscles in your face. The active ingredients temporarily paralyze these muscles.
Once the muscles relax, the lines and wrinkles smooth and flatten, becoming almost unnoticeable. Botox treatments take less than 30 minutes to complete and are simple, virtually painless, and the results are natural, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Fillers are a treatment option that uses special injections to help someone improve their overall aesthetic appearance. The natural process of aging will change the way someone looks over time and is a natural part of life.
The chemical peel is a formula consisting of a blend of powerful ingredients that helps improve skin tone, texture and clarity. It softens fine lines and wrinkles, and restores a more even skin tone by reducing age spots and sun damage. This peel is sub-dermal which means it peels more than just the top layer giving the client “baby skin”. It “peels” away surface damage and lightens underneath damage. It improves texture by smoothing away rough skin to reveal a more youthful, glowing complexion.
In the same way that shaving works, dermaplaning uses a painless blade to gently scrape away facial hair (often referred to as ‘peach fuzz’) and rids the skin of any build-up of dead skin cells, all which can contribute to making your skin look dull or uneven. Just like an exfoliation, it removes any barriers which would stop your skincare from penetrating – meaning your products often work much more effectively after a treatment.
