Both women and men would agree that younger looking skin is something they would love to have. But nature is fighting us. Gravity, sun exposure, squinting, smiling and general aging cause a breakdown of the tissues that keep our skin looking young. Over time, wrinkles develop, causing the face to appear older.
You wake up one morning, look in the mirror, and see something unflattering!
It’s as if a crow has been doing the chicken dance around your eyes!
And if that isn’t insult enough, you also notice those “elevens” creases between your eyebrows!!
Relax- and realize it’s unavoidable.
You see, wrinkles are caused by muscle contractions that cause the skin to bunch together and form lines – crow’s feet, AKA “elevens”, are vertical frown lines between the eyes. Elevens, like forehead lines, are a natural result of muscle contractions.
Then, there are the added issues caused by sun damage, smoking, and old age, working against you even if you’re not screwing your face into a frown.
Fortunately, Guyer Institute’s Synergy Spa has ways to scare away the crows and eliminate the elevens with Botox and fillers treatments.
What is Botox and how does it work?
Botulinum is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. At Synergy Spa, we use BotoxCosmetic It is the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in adults. Injections are administered by a certified PA and injector.
After administration of Botox, the muscles that contract and cause the skin to bunch together are temporarily paralyzed, reducing crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead creases. No, you won’t lose the expressiveness of your face, only the lines. With Botox, there is no downtime, and results tend to last 3-6 months.
Now, about those fillers…
Fillers are another popular treatment at Synergy Spa. Using the #1 selling filler in the US-Juvederm, your certified PA injects filler into areas where folds, wrinkles, or deep skin depressions are evident. The injections consist of Hyaluronic Acid, a natural ingredient found in the body. This adds subtle volume, resulting in a lifting and smoothing of the area. Discomfort is minimal and the treatment does not take long to perform. Aesthetic improvements are seen immediately. Treatment lasts between 18-24 months.
At Synergy Spa, our motto will always be…”crow’s feet (and those nasty “elevens”) are for the birds!”
