Botox can make you look more rested

That's right, Botox can actually make a person look more rested. The patient shown below had a treatment between the eyebrows, relaxing the muscles that pull down the brow, giving her a nice lift. You can also see the reduction in the upper eyelid lag. The sclera (white area) of the eye is more visible. The eyes look larger and she looks rested and rejuvenated.

Latisse special offer

Latisse is a great treatment for what is called eyelash hypotrichosis, which is not enough eyelashes. It is a simple once a day treatment that leads to longer, darker, and fuller lashes. Initial results are seen in as little as four weeks with full results in 12 to 16 weeks. A one-month supply comes with the liquid medication and 30 pairs of applicators, one per day. One drop is applied on the applicator tip and applied to the area where the eyelash touches the skin. Results are sustained as long as it is used.

Allergan, the company that makes Latisse (and also Botox and Juvederm), is offering a special which expires at the end of April 2011. If you buy one bottle of Latisse, you can get another mailed to you for free. Contact us for our current specials: 818-835-1833,

The before pictures are shown on the left and after on the right. Three different angles are shown. The patient is attempting to raise her eyebrows in all images. Notice the lack of lines on the right. Amazing!

This is an actual patient who signed a release allowing use of photography for marketing purposes.

What is a photofacial?

A photofacial is a simple procedure where a laser or light-based device is used for color correction. It works great for dark spots, freckles, and generalized redness. It uses the same principle as laser hair removal, so you may experience hair loss in the area (good or bad). It works especially well when used in combination with bleaching creams such as hydroquinone.

Also, a photofacial is not necessarily limited to the face. It can be used on other areas with age spots or dark spots such as the backs of the hands and arms or upper chest, just about anywhere with undesired pigmentation.

Be sure to consult with a doctor if you have suspicious moles in the area so a potential cancer will not be affected.
