BOTOX for Browlift
Botox is a muscle-paralyzing injection into or near facial muscles to temporarily weaken or prevent it from working. It is used for wrinkles, eyebrow lift, excessive sweating, migraines, muscular disorders, and some bladder and bowel disorders.
Facial Autologous Muscular Injection (FAMI) is a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure to reverse the loss of volume due to aging. It involves removing adult stem cells from another area of the body and inject the living fatty tissue into specific muscles in the face. The addition of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) enhances the desired fat transfer outcome.
The best area of the body to harvest fat from for facial fat grafting is the inner thigh and knee.
Vanquish is a revolutionary, non-surgical and FDA-cleared treatment for body contouring. This procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat and melt fat pockets. It heats the skin to 101 degrees, and the underlying fat cells to 120 degrees. Vanquish fat removal works on core, abdomen, hips, back, and buttocks. The therapy can result in the circumferential reduction of 2 inches for the abdomen without downtime or discomfort.
KYBELLA (previously known as ATX-101) is a non-surgical procedure to reduce moderate / severe fat on the upper neck. To break up fat cells, injections are made in the chin area (Double Chin). If you try diet and exercise, and you do not lose the turkey neck, you are a good candidate for this treatment. Patients may need several sessions to be effective.
