Botox® is a neurotoxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. When injected into the targeted area, Botox blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscle to contract. This makes the skin appear smoother and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
Botox is most commonly used to treat wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, around the eyes and between the eyebrows. It can also be used to treat other conditions such as migraines, excessive sweating, and muscle stiffness. The effects of Botox typically last for 3 to 6 months before the muscle function returns to normal and wrinkles start to reappear.
Dysport® and Botox are both injectable treatments that are used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines. However, there is a key difference in their formulations. Dysport is more diluted and spreads quickly, making it ideal for treating larger surface areas such as the forehead. Botox, on the other hand, is more concentrated and is best for more precise areas such as crow's feet.
JUVÉDERM® is a type of dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to add volume and hydration to the skin. It is used to smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging on the face.
It can also be used to enhance the lips and cheeks. The procedure is typically done by injecting the filler into the target area using a fine needle. The effects of Juvederm can last for several months before the body gradually breaks down and absorbs the hyaluronic acid.

Carboxy Shots, also known as Carboxytherapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) gas into the skin. The procedure is intended to improve the appearance of the skin and treat conditions such as cellulite, stretch marks, and dark under-eye circles.
The injected CO2 gas is thought to increase blood flow and oxygen to the treated area, which in turn may stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity.
Sculptra is an injectable treatment that stimulates the body's own collagen production to improve the skin's structure and elasticity. It works by adding volume to the face, and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
