These are considered Neurotoxins (Botox ™ and Xeomin ™) and Fillers (Juvederm ™, and Restalyne ™). Numerous changes occur as we age. Loss of muscle tone and thinning skin gives the face a drooping appearance. Fat loss from the upper and lower face gives the eyes a sunken look with bags, frown lines and wrinkles around the lips and eyes (Crow”s feet). Loss of bone mass also creates a drooping effect in all areas.
The Neurotoxins (Botox ™ and Xeomin ™) are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause muscle contraction. When certain muscles are relaxed the appearance of wrinkles are markedly diminished. Neurotoxins alone last for approximately 3 months but with continued therapy the targeted muscles will become weaker resulting in decreased amount of toxin needed or a decreased frequency of the treatments needed to produce the same effect. The Fillers (Juvederm ™ and Restalyne ™) help to restore the tissue loss that occurs with aging. Using a combination of Neurotoxins and/or Fillers (as recommended by you're A Vita Nova Specialist) we can give you a noninvasive facelift that can last for months with little or no downtime.
