The reality is that almost any facial expression – from sadness to worry to excitement to surprise and even smiling – can cause wrinkles in these areas. While you could spend hours learning to talk without moving your forehead at all in hopes of preventing frown lines altogether, we have a better way – DAXXIFY™! Read More

Curbs Excessive Sweating

One of the most exciting new uses for Botox is to stop the excessive sweating caused by hyperhidrosis.

Is a Chemical Peel or Microneedling Better for Acne Scars?

As if acne itself isn’t bad enough, some former acne sufferers have to relive that trauma every time they look in the mirror due to acne scarring. Acne scarring is caused by the inflammation of pores during an acne outbreak and the subsequent breakdown of the pore walls. The severity of acne scarring depends on many factors, such as the frequency of breakouts, damage to the pore walls, and effects on surrounding tissues. Read More

Can Botox Help with Excess Sweating?

Excessive sweating not related to heat or activity, also known as hyperhidrosis, affects about 1% of the population in the United States. Overactive nerve signals are the most common cause. These nerves signal the sweat glands to overproduce, leaving you all sweaty for seemingly no reason. This causes most people extreme discomfort and embarrassment. It can even prevent some people from being able to work or have normal social lives. Efforts to conceal hyperhidrosis are usually futile and put tons of undue stress and expense on the patient.

Why Winter Is a Great Time to Have Your Botox Done

Summer gets all the attention, but we think the winter holiday season is just as important!

During winter, the temperature cools and the humidity falls, while sunlight decreases in angle, duration, and intensity. But why do these changes wreak so much havoc on your skin? Read More
