Summer Break is over and kids from Kindergarten to College are going back to school. This is a breath of fresh air for many parents who are looking forward to some quiet time. It also allows for some more time to take care of the home necessities and even opens up the schedule for those beauty treatments that were neglected in the midst of the activities of summer. Here are some ideas for back to school celebration beauty and rejuvenation treatments for the face.
A Botox treatment is truly “in and out” within a lunch break and requires no downtime, so if you need to take your kids to soccer practice after school or help them set up their dorm room over the weekend, you can get Botox that day and you’re still good to go. By using a tiny amount of botulinum toxin type A that blocks the nerve signal to the muscle, Botox can smooth out frown lines, crow’s feet and brow wrinkles by caused by facial muscles in motion. Other popular treatment areas from the forehead down to the collarbone are those two vertical lines between the brows, nose furrows, smoker’s lines above the lips, and thick lines in the neck. This simple, safe injection can also prevents the formation of facial lines and wrinkles since those muscles won’t be moving to make the creases.
This injectable is a filler that smoothes out lines with hyaluronic acid that restores volume to the area. Perfect for eliminating those annoying parenthesis lines on the side of the nose and mouth. Juvederm is offered in a variety of formulas that offer greater versatility and varying depths of injection. The smooth gel allows for treatment of more difficult folds and less discomfort during treatments. This is another treatment on the go, so it won’t interfere with your family routine. Juvederm XC Ultra and Ultra Plus formulas can help smooth wrinkles for every skin tone and type, since they are the first FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for safe, effective treatment that includes persons of color.
Sculptra is a little bit different than the previous injectables even though it can be done as a “no downtime,” “in and out” treatment, it isn’t intended to be an “overnight fix.” Sculptra is the only facial injectable that offers results that can last 2 years and possibly longer. It restores facial volume that works gradually and subtly by stimulating the body’s own collagen renewal for long lasting results that look natural.
Celebrate the kids or grandkids going back to school by treating yourself to a quick anti aging procedure that easily fits into the every day family routine. While you’re in the office getting your non invasive treatments to rejuvenate your face, we can talk about your other youth restoring goals for remainder of this year and make a treatment plan.
