Botox is the most common injectable for treatment of wrinkles, lines, and the aging face. Botox is a sterilized, purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscle to which it is injected. This relaxation lasts for 3–4 months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition.
Juvederm® ultra is a filler that is ideal for correcting skin texture imperfections like wrinkles, furrows, contour depressions and fine lines. It is immediate and lasts for several months.
Latisse is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker, and darker. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for inadequate or not enough eyelashes.
According to studies, Latisse lengthens, thickens and darkens eyelashes via a process that is not fully understood. Like the hair on your head, eyelashes sprout, grow for a while and eventually fall out. Latisse both extends the growth phase and increases the number of hairs that sprout.
You apply Latisse by dabbing it on the upper lash line each night with sterile applicators that are supplied. The drug spreads to your lower lash automatically as you blink. According to the manufacturer, you should never apply it in your eye or eye lid. Before you apply, your face must be clean and your make up and contact lenses removed.
