You don't know what you've got till it's gone... That's especially true in the case of facial volume.
One day, you realize that your cheek area is flatter than it used to be. You see lines and wrinkles where skin used to be smooth and plump. Your smile seems to have deflated, with a loss of definition around the lips. Skin that once looked youthful has taken on a dull texture.
We all see these signs of aging at some point. Some of us are unfortunate to see them much earlier than others do.
So what happened?
There was a time when you needed surgery to eliminate wrinkles and add volume. Now we live in an age where it can be done with medically-administered injections. In fact, we can even do it on your lunch hour.
Dermal filler injections exist where scientific innovation overlaps with our natural physiology. They consist of pure hyaluronic acid, a substance our bodies make naturally. Hyaluronic acid can hold 1000 times its weight in water - making it ideal for plumping and defining the skin. And because it is a material produced by our own bodies, dermal fillers do not cause allergic reactions.
As dermal filler injections address skin laxity and loss of collagen, they are superb at increasing firmness, making skin more taut, and replenishing lost volume. Wrinkles are significantly smoothed, whether on the face, neck, décolletage (cleavage area), hands or elsewhere.
Within seconds, dermal fillers injected into volume-depleted areas of the face or body replace lost volume. Bonus: Your results are immediate and side effects are minimal to non-existent. While you might see slight swelling in the hours right after your injections, this is normal and will subside within 12 hours. You can expect the results to last from six months to one year.
What you get is a noticeably rejuvenated, well-rested look. What's more, the downtime is almost non-existent. Have your dermal filler injections after work and go to the office the next day. You could even have the treatment on your lunch hour - it's that fast and easy.
What can be corrected? Almost everything: from sunken-in temples, cheeks, and under-eye areas, to thinning lips or ear lobes, or prominent lines that appear to be carved into your forehead.
There's no need to live as a shadow of your former self - especially if that shadow has a face covered in shadows (and wrinkles) of its own. It has never been easier, faster, or more pain-free to address what used to be insurmountable signs of aging.

Why scalp Botox? — This is popular amongst women who are into fitness or sweat quite often along the hairline/head. Botox controls sweating, and receiving it on the scalp also helps to preserve the hair/blowouts. Have you ever heard women joke around about how they schedule their workouts around their Dry Bar schedule? This is the solution. Scalp Botox is great for women who want to go straight from the gym to running errands. It simply preserves blowouts because it helps to reduce sweat gland excretions.
Is scalp Botox painful? — No. We can use ice, and just tiny insulin needles are used.
When does it kick in and how long does it last? — Scalp Botox starts to kick in in about 3-4 days. Typically, by the end of one week after receiving Botox, you usually have a pretty good idea of how effective it will be. It can continue to evolve for two full weeks, so that’s when we would set up a follow-up appointment to evaluate the progress.
How long do you have to wait after the Botox injections if you have a hair appointment or a blowout? — Usually, we would have the person wait about three days.
How much would this cost someone? — It obviously takes more units of Botox because of the larger area that will have to be covered. The average client will need 100 units of Botox. Botox is sold in units, and the price varies by office. We charge currently $8 per unit of Botox for scalp treatments which would cost approximately $800.
