- A more youthful-looking appearance
- Smoother skin
- Fewer lines and wrinkles
- A boost of confidence
- Fuller eyelashes
- Reduced fat pockets
Each aesthetics procedure offers unique benefits, and choosing more than one treatment can maximize your results.
How do aesthetics treatments work?
Knowing more about different aesthetics treatments helps you determine which one best matches your needs.
Revolutionary CoolSculpting is a way to get rid of stubborn fat pockets that linger despite achieving a healthy weight, eating right, and exercising regularly. Your provider applies a CoolSculpting device to problem areas, such as your chin or love handles, where it freezes fat cells. The cells get destroyed, and your body eventually eliminates them.
Botox is an FDA-approved injection made of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that blocks nerve impulses to facial muscles. This relaxes the muscles to reduce lines caused by frowning, smiling, and squinting. Botox injections result in fewer lines near your forehead, eyes, mouth, or chin.
Botox injections take just minutes to complete, and your provider can numb problem areas to make the procedure feel more comfortable for you.
Like Botox, Dysport is an FDA-approved botulinum toxin injection that reduces facial lines and wrinkles. The difference between Botox and Dysport is in their formulation and the dosage used. Dysport creates a natural-looking reduction in frown lines between your eyebrows, without looking overdone.
Latisse is an FDA-approved ophthalmic solution that improves eyelash growth if you have inadequate or not enough eyelashes. It’s available with a prescription from your doctor. Simply apply the solution to the base of your upper lashes as directed, and watch your eyelashes become longer and thicker over time.
