How Many Botox Treatments Will I Need to See Results?

By now, you probably know that Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging injections available on the market today. Botox is an FDA-approved injectable that uses a safe botulinum toxin protein to effectively intercept the signals being sent from the brain to muscles at the injection site. The result of this treatment is the skin at the injection site becomes much more relaxed, resulting in an almost-overnight disappearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and even crow’s feet. But what you might not know is: How many Botox treatments will you need to see results? The answer is that it largely depends on your skin, as well as the degree of aging you’re showing. For example, clients with significant wrinkles and fine lines will need more Botox treatments to see results than, say, [...]

Is Kybella Permanent?

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new fat-dissolving treatment in town – one that delivers permanent, life-changing results. Kybella is a brand-new, FDA-approved treatment that’s exclusively designed to dissolve fat underneath the chin.

Courtesy of MyKybella.com If your chin fat is a constant source of embarrassment for you, it may be time to learn more about how a Kybella treatment can help.  Here’s what you need to know about this exciting new treatment: Kybella is comprised of deoxycholic acid, a [...]

Radiesse Injections to the Hand – A New Anti-Aging Treatment

You know that if you want to look younger, it’s important to take care of your facial skin.  That’s why there are so many treatments out there that promise to minimize wrinkles, fade dark spots, and help reveal radiant, youthful-looking skin. But what about the other parts of your body that can be a dead giveaway for your real age – like your hands? For far too long, the hands have been overlooked in the typical anti-aging regimen.  It’s a real shame, too: since the skin of the hands is thin, wrinkles and fine lines often appear here first.  Add to the fact that aging hands often show bumpy veins, it’s no wonder that aging hands can often be a source of embarrassment. That’s why South Coast Plastic Surgery in Irvine, California is so excited to [...]
