As we age, our skin begins to lose collagen and volume in areas such as the face and lips. This sunken appearance gives us the wrinkled, depressed and darkened skin we dread. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to combat these effects of aging. There are many different types of fillers which can be used in specific areas such as the cheeks, nasolabial folds and lips to help restore our skin’s youthful appearance. Recently, there have been additions to the line of Juvederm products (Volbella, Vollure and Voluma) that use the latest in crosslinking technology for longer lasting and smoother results. Typically, fillers are used on deeper wrinkles on the lower face such as those surrounding the mouth and cheeks; while Botox is used for wrinkles created with facial movement. When used together, filler and botox can give you the smooth, youthful skin you have been dreaming of.
Life seems to be crazy busy and always moving at warp speed and every one will agree that it becomes even more rushed at the holidays. It’s no surprise that we don’t end up getting to take all the time we need to treat our skin to the all the benefits that peels, microdermabrasions, and facials can offer.The quickest way, and my favorite way, to sneak all three of those treatments in is with our Ultimate Microdermabrasion. It offers the benefits of light chemical exfoliation with the liquid enzyme, the physical exfoliating wonders of the microdermabrasion and finishes it off with the soothing and hydration benefits of a spa facial. It offers instant gratification and a glow that can’t be beat with minimal to no downtime and only an hour and a half of your time. You won’t be sorry and you will sparkle through the holidays! –Toni Wentz, Esthetician
