Vitamin B-12 / B-Complex injections
Vitamin B-12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all body cells. Vitamin B-12 is an important cofactor for energy production and plays a role in both a healthy metabolism and immune system. It supports healthy cognitive and nerve functions as well as memory and emotional well-being.
The B-Complex vitamins are essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system and are perhaps the most important nutritional factor for healthy nerve cells.The B-Complex vitamins also play a role in the conversion of carbohydrates into energy, the metabolism of fats and proteins as well as maintenance of muscle tone in the G.I. tract. levels associated with cardiovascular disease, and may also help protect against some types of cancers.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin® and Dysport® are simple, non-surgical treatments that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. These injectables reduce existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. Early maintenance with Botox will ensure your skin maintains its elasticity and natural collagen, reducing your chance for wrinkles as you age. These injectable treatments are used to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. For example: the “angry line” between your brows, “worry lines” on your forehead and “crow’s feet” around your eyes.
Juvederm® is an injectable filler used to diminish wrinkles where there has been volume loss. Juvederm® can be used to reduce marionette lines, thin lips, flattened cheeks, and under eye hollows. Juvederm can also be used to perform a Liquid Face Lift. The filler is placed in specific locations to help lift the face in order to restore its natural youthful contours. Jowls will be diminished, jawline sharpened, brows lifted, and cheeks plumped within minutes! Read More about Juvederm®
Radiesse® is a new generation injectable filler that offers superior versatility for both cosmetic and reconstructive use without surgery. The unique composition of Radiesse® provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. This is because Radiesse® is made of very tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. The microspheres (particles) form a scaffold through which your body’s own collagen grows, and this produces the desired long-term effect. These unique advantages make Radiesse the ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring. Read More about Radiesse®
