Heard about injectables, but want to learn more? This month’s Lunch & Learn on May 25 from 12-2 pm will discuss “The Artistry of Injectables.” The event features a live model demonstration with Pam Neitzel, owner and founder of Naples Laser and Medspa. She boasts more than 13 years experience in the industry and is a national trainer and educator on advanced techniques with injectables and laser techniques.

Injectables – What are the differences?

Both Botox and facial fillers are both effective methods of improving signs of aging. People often confuse them with each other and consider them to be synonymous. The truth is they tackle specific and different problems.

Botox’s primarily treats and prevents facial wrinkles. The FDA approved Botox as a cosmetic treatment for frown lines above the eyebrows and wrinkles. Botox reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles.

Facial fillers or dermal fillers get used to prevent or eliminate signs of aging in the face, such as wrinkles. Facial fillers fill trouble areas with collagen, which stimulates collagen growth in the face and also plumps and lifts the skin to replace collagen loss. This helps your skin achieve as youthful a look as possible and eliminates signs of aging that occur as a result of collagen depletion.

The important things to consider when choosing between Botox and facial fillers is what kind of wrinkles you want to get rid of and how you plan to do it. Botox remains the better choice for dynamic wrinkles as it will reduce their motion and visibility. These wrinkles occur when the face is in motion or making expression. They are usually positioned in the forehead and around the eyebrows. Facial fillers are ideal for static wrinkles, which are visible even when you relax your face and make no expressions. These areas appear depleted and sunken in and benefit from the fullness that facial fillers provide.

We offer many different types of injectables, including Belotero, Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma XC, Kybella, Radiesse, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk and Sculptra at both our Bonita Springs and Naples locations.

Brotox increasing in popularity

Brotox is increasing in popularity as men start looking to fillers as a quick way to get rid of wrinkles and look younger. Even male celebrities such as Simon Cowell and David Hasselhoff admit to using Botox to improve their appearance.

According to statistics from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number one non-surgical cosmetic treatment for men is injections of Botulinum Toxin, including Botox and Dysport.

In 2015, more than 400,000 injections were given to men, roughly 10 percent of all injections of that type. The No. 2 non-surgical cosmetic treatment was injections of Hyaluronic Acid, including Juvederm and Restylane.

Vanity is not exclusive to women. In the age of “selfies” there are men who find themselves unsatisfied with their own appearance. Despite attempts to live a healthy lifestyle, elements like sun exposure, gravity, weight fluctuations and aging, all take their toll on the face as wrinkles set in.

Nobody wants to look in the mirror and see a reflection staring back that appears much older than how they feel. Brotox can help men appear younger by diminishing lines and wrinkles that cause one to look older or tired.

Many men also consider Brotox for professional reasons. Research shows it can have a positive impact on confidence in the workplace, which in turn improves odds of professional success. In a highly competitive job market, Brotox could give that extra edge of confidence to land a job or promotion.

It’s just easier to feel and show more confidence if you are confident in your appearance.

Many men become concerned with the “eleven” lines. These vertical creases are formed between the eyebrows when they furrow. As one ages, these lines become increasingly visible but Botox can be used to smooth them out.

Since Brotox is non-invasive and non-surgical, the treatment can be performed quickly—even during a lunch break—and produce immediate results. The treatment appears natural and offers a refreshed, well-rested, younger appearance in just a few minutes.

Don’t miss a chance to learn more about Brotox and meet Dan. Give us a call at 239-228-7491 to reserve your seat.

Can botox make you happy?

Can Botox make you happy?

Can botox make you happy?Can Botox make you happy? A recent article in The Telegraph provides some research to show it can.

Whether you believe it or not, it’s an interesting topic to pursue.

There are apparently a lot of people who get Botox to make them look happier. In return, they feel happier. And, it’s not just one gender running to get a Botox injection. Women and men want to look happier and less sad, especially over  the holidays.

At least one study suggests that Botox actually can reduce depression. According to the article in The Telegraph, “research cited in Aesthetics Journal suggests nine out of 10 patients with major depressive disorder noticed a reduction in symptoms when treated with botulinum toxin, also known as Botox.”

Other experts back up the theory, saying that there is evidence to indicate that if someone looks happier, and they are happier with their appearance, they become happier.

Read the entire article.

So, can Botox make you happy?

 It makes sense that looking happier would make you feel happier. Try just this simple experiment. Stop what you are doing and just smile. Make it a big happy smile, or even let out a little laugh. Don’t you feel a little happier?

Imagine if you looked in the mirror and a happy looking person was looking back at you. How would that make you feel?

Now, imagine if you have frown lines, especially deep ones between your eyebrows, and that’s what you see when you look in the mirror. Does that make you happy or sad?

Happiness can be contagious. When you are around other people in a good mood, it often lifts your mood. If you see someone smile at you, you often smile back. The physical act of smiling can translate to an inner feeling of happiness.

Have you ever had someone ask you what was wrong, when nothing was wrong? It’s the look you had on your face and you didn’t even realize it. You want your inner and outer happiness to show. Perhaps Botox is the way to go.

Botox isn’t something you should just jump into because you think it will make you happier. You should do some research and seek consultation.

We always talk with our clients first to make sure we know their expectations and goals. We want to do what we can to help them achieve their desired results.
