There’s No Need to Worry:
Many women get nervous at the thought of facial injections, but let us assure you, there is no need to worry. We will talk you through every procedure and make sure you understand every aspect of the wrinkle-refining treatments. We also provide a spa-like environment so you feel pampered, relaxed and happy about your procedure.
Injectables are typically used to get rid of lines and wrinkles between the eyes, across the forehead and around the eyes.
Botox® and Xeomin®
This is how it works: Botulinum toxin injection works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles and blocking muscle contractions under the skin. This eliminates or drastically reduces lines and wrinkles from your face. Botox® and Xeomin® are some of the most popular injectables used. They reduce wrinkles around the mouth, between the brows and on the forehead.
Collagen keeps the skin plump and firm. When we’re young, we naturally produce collagen. However, as we get older our natural collagen production dwindles. This leaves us losing volume in our face. Luckily, cosmetic fillers can restore the collagen of our youth.
Juvederm® and Voluma®
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) are used to treat medium to deep facial wrinkles. Many people use these fillers in the area below their nose that leads to the corners of their mouth. They can also be used for your forehead and to contour your jawline. HA fillers typically last around a year.
Here are the Hyaluronic Acid fillers that we offer:
– Juvederm® Ultra
– Juvederm® Ultra Plus
– Juvederm® Voluma XC
This collagen booster tells your skin to naturally make its own collagen again. This type of filler contains calcium-based microspheres. They work super fast and you’ll start feeling and looking younger right away!
Synthetic wrinkle fillers work best with deep wrinkles. They’re typically used for areas around the mouth. This procedure leaves your skin looking and feeling younger for up to a year.

Walk it Out:
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, walking helps you stay positive and, relieves symptoms of depression and can even make you look and feel younger. Walking can also reduce stress and help you sleep more deeply and restfully.
Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants and can prevent the formation of early aging. It’s a natural skin moisturizer and contains emollient, which helps reduce wrinkles that have already developed. Massage coconut oil into your skin before bed each night.
Our skin is a combination of proteins, water and fats. It only makes sense that we need to eat healthy food for replenishment.
- Almonds have skin-plumping and hydrating fats with vitamin E and powerful antioxidants.
- Blueberries have a powerful combination of antioxidants and collagen.
- Tomatoes are also a great source of vitamin C. They also have lycopene, which protects our skin from sun damage. Tomatoes improve our vascular system, giving our skin that natural glow due to the extra blood circulation.
