When BOTOX and Dysport are injected into muscles, it blocks the transmission between the nerve endings and the surrounding muscle fibers and causes weakness in the muscles, reducing the contractions in the local area. Botox/Dysport only work on the muscles that have been specifically injected, which leaves the surrounding muscles functioning as normal. *The end result is softening, or even eliminating lines of expression of the upper face.
The three most commonly treated areas are the Glabellar Complex (central frown lines), horizontal brow lines, and Crow’s Feet (smile lines). This does not affect your actual smile, as those muscles are not injected. Over time, lines at rest may even fully be reversed. The best approach for success is to be re-injected with Botox or Dysport just as the effect is starting to fade (commonly between ten and twelve weeks for most individuals).
Botox: $11/unit when purchasing 40+ unit; $12/unit when purchasing 30+ units; $13/unit for less than 30 units.
Dysport: $4.00/unit 100+ units; $4.40/unit less than 100.
*Botox/Dysport units can also be purchased in advance and banked for later use to save you money.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.
• *Plump thin lips
• *Enhance shallow contours
• *Soften facial creases and wrinkles
• *Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.
For some patients, surgery such as a facelift, brow lift, or eye lift may be the best approach. Non-surgical rejuvenation treatments, such as soft tissue fillers, cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time when consideration of a facelift becomes appropriate. A consultation is best to help you determine which ones are right for you.

Christine – Do you know how good it feels when you feel like you’re glowing? When you look in the mirror with a dash of satisfaction knowing you’re putting your best foot forward? Things are just cookin’. People see and feel this kind of inner radiance and are automatically attracted to it.
Helping you look your best and feel your most attractive is my new career endeavor. Nursing has been a wonderful career for me for over thirty years. The transition from caring for women and families throughout pregnancy and delivery and then into menopause has been a natural one.
Curiosity about anti-aging techniques and modalities has ignited my desire to learn more about skin, our largest organ. As a nurse and a health care educator I have a passion for teaching. Assisting people with their self-image through sharing information and product knowledge is empowering for them and satisfying for me. Through working and partnering creatively with you to improve your self-image and ultimately your self-esteem, I experience the joy of making a difference. Our clients experience a personal shift in how they view themselves when they know they are practicing positive self-care.
It is true that people feel much better when they perceive that they look great. I’m delighted to join Advanced Skin Therapy’s talented team, bringing beauty, both inner and outer, to you, our clientele. It’s a charismatic recipe for success.
