When those deep creases around the mouth and fine lines around the eyes are giving away your real age, a facelift isn’t your only option. Wrinkle treatments such as Botox, Restylane and Juvederm continue to be popular anti aging treatments for those that do not want to undergo surgery, and some researchers suggest that the injections are actually good for your skin.
Even though many people think of getting a facelift to rejuvenate their appearance, an extensive plastic surgery procedure might not even be necessary to achieve a more youthful look. Botox can be used to address the issue of lines and wrinkles around key facial compartments to give you an instant “lift” – and all without surgery.

This procedure is ideal for anyone who has some heaviness or droopiness in the brow area and eyelids, and is looking for a minimally-invasive surgery treatment that delivers instant results.

As these PRP growth factors are released, they induce the production of collagen, generate new capillary blood supply and increase retention of moisture, all adding to skin rejuvenation by helping skin to regenerate itself.

The smooth consistency gel helps instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines”.
