Botox injections are used for cosmetic enhancements as well as for various medical conditions. While Botox is a neurotoxin or neuromodulator, it’s very safe if used appropriately by a medical professional.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical term for excessive sweating. It refers to excessive and abnormal sweating that may occur even when it’s not hot outside. Those who sweat excessively will often soak through their clothing rendering regular and prescription deodorants useless. Typical areas affected include underarms, hands, and feet.
Botox has been FDA approved to help those with hyperhidrosis by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system would activate your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. However, in people with hyperhidrosis, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.
Revitalizing your face and skin without invasive surgery can be achieved at Advanced Skin Therapy by using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).
Let’s explain by separating the two services for ease of understanding.
A PRP Facial is very much like a microneedling facial/treatment with the exception being that we are using the PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma from your own blood as a serum to be infused into your skin as opposed to using a serum of hyaluronic acid. While hyaluronic acid will infuse your skin with hydration during a microneedling treatment, platelets are the cells in your blood that help to heal and cause new cell growth. Or said another way, platelets will generate new collagen, generate repair to your cells while stimulating new cell growth. When you combine new collagen, new cellular growth and repair of cells, you will combat the cause of so much skin damage and aging over the years. PRP is often referred to as Liquid Gold! PRP is also known as Regenerative Cell Therapy.
PDO threads are fine medical-grade suture material made of polydioxanone; a dissolvable protein compound. At their start, they were used in cardiac surgeries. Later, they would find their way into other uses including aesthetics.
Vein disease is inherited. Although results of treatment are often dramatic, as with all cosmetic procedures, with sclerotherapy we look for improvement—not perfection. If we can obtain 75% improvement in veins, we are doing very well. Improvement more than 75% of the time happens regularly and is excellent.
