Are Botox and dermal fillers the same thing? Which one is right for me?
Both Botox and dermal fillers are popular injectable treatments that are used to treat lines and wrinkles; however, these treatments work quite differently. Botox injections reduce muscle contractions in the face to smooth lines and wrinkles that appear when smiling or frowning.
On the other hand, dermal fillers such as Restylane add volume to thinning areas of the skin to help plump up the face to make it appear younger. Dermal fillers are great for treating deeper wrinkles.
What can a chemical peel do for my skin?
A chemical peel is a great option if you are looking for a deep-cleaning cosmetic treatment that removes the outermost layer of the skin to reveal healthy new skin. It’s great for treating everything from acne and uneven skin tone to fine lines, wrinkles and superficial scars.
What are the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures?
