Body contouring is a nonsurgical medical procedure that targets and removes body fat. This procedure uses a tool (such as a laser or freezing device) to destroy fat cells under the skin’s surface without changing the appearance of the skin. Most people need several body contouring sessions to achieve their goal results, but many individuals see a difference in as little as one 25-minute procedure. Each body contouring session is quick and non-invasive, allowing patients to see real results without the painful recovery period that usually follows weight loss surgery.
Botox® is a treatment to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look better in adults. So you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines.
It’s a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
Less known is Xeomin. Botox® and Xeomin share the same active ingredient, and can perform equally well.
Facial filler, also known as dermal filler, is an injectable solution that fills the soft tissue under the skin. The filler can be synthetic or natural. Fillers are ideal for filling in creases and lines, plumping up the lips and cheeks, improve acne scars, minimize circles under the eyes, and enhancing facial contours. There is minimal pain involved, and usually patients can resume normal activities immediately. Fillers cans be combined with treatments such as Botox® to mimic the effects of a face lift without the scars and extended recovery time.
