Say goodbye to dynamic wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles develop as a result of repetitive facial expressions such as squinting or frowning. Crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and the “11” wrinkles between your eyebrows are all examples of dynamic wrinkles. Unfortunately, these wrinkles can make you appear worried or grumpy — even if you’re not.
Enter: Botox® injectable treatments. Botox temporarily relaxes specific facial muscles around your eyes and forehead, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Treatments are quick (about 10 minutes), and you’ll start to see results in just 24-48 hours.
Botox might be right for you if you:
- Have dynamic wrinkles
- Have severe frown lines
- Have forehead lines
- Have crow’s feet
- Aren’t bothered by injections
There’s only minimal downtime, and it’s best to avoid exercise for 24 hours after your treatment. Redness at the injection site is a common but temporary side effect. This means that Botox can fit easily into your schedule without impacting your busy holiday plans.
Restore a youthful appearance
Dynamic wrinkles aren’t the only type of wrinkles that impact your appearance. Static wrinkles can form as a result of the natural aging process. As you age, your body starts to produce less of both collagen and elastin — two proteins that make your skin smooth, soft, and supple.
Thankfully, dermal fillers such as JUVEDERM® combat static wrinkles and volume loss. JUVEDERM is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid (which naturally occurs in your body) to restore lost volume and promote collagen production.
JUVEDERM might be right for you if you have:
- Wrinkles around your nose and mouth
- Volume loss around your cheeks
Like Botox, JUVEDERM has little downtime. Results can last up to 12 months. And you don’t have to choose between JUVEDERM and Botox. They each combat different types of wrinkles, so you can receive both injections to achieve your desired look.
Get dreamy eyes with Latisse®
Mascara can make your eyelashes appear darker and more vibrant, but if your lashes are thinning, there’s no mascara that can make them longer. Latisse can help though! Latisse, which is a prescription medication, stimulates your eyelashes to grow both thicker and longer.
You might consider Latisse if:
- Your upper eyelashes are thin or sparse
- You’re committed to the process (results dissipate when you stop using Latisse)
You’ll start to see results around four weeks, leaving you with luscious, dreamy eyelashes ready for any close-up!
