Am I Too Young for Botox?

 

Some would say Botox®/Dysport® before wrinkles is useless but I beg to differ.  As someone who didn’t start Botox til my late 30’s, I certainly wish I could turn back time!  Botox or Dysport can and is much more frequently being used as preventative maintenance for wrinkles. If you smile a lot (crows feet) or frown a lot (Glabellar or 11’s) these products in your 20’s can prevent the wrinkles from setting in!

By watching someone’s facial expressions you can see where they are most likely to form wrinkles in the future.  Those are the areas where you would want to start these products early. It actually trains the muscle to relax. The good news is you can usually use a smaller dose when using Botox/Dysport preventatively.  You also do not need to be completely frozen for it to work! You can still have some expression while preventing deep lines from setting in! I think it’s a win win!!

Its not too early! Call me to schedule an appointment!

Men, interested in Botox?

 

It’s easier than you think & we’re here to tell you why!

Botox® for men, or as I like to call it “Brotox” has become one of the most requested aesthetic procedures requested. What makes this procedure popular is the fact that it is non-surgical and requires no downtime. It is an easy treatment with proven results.  Why are more men willing and likely to seek this treatment?

1.  Men are result oriented.

This treatment achieves softening of lines and wrinkles within 5 to 7
days post treatment.

2. Younger and less stern looking.

Our society is youth driven. Rarely is aging graceful. Whether in
business or casual men want to look youthful and rested. Deep wrinkles between the eyes can make a man look stern and unapproachable.

3. Minimally invasive.

Facelifts, brow lifts and eyelid surgery require anesthesia and downtime.
Botox is a quick 15 to 30 minute procedure administered with a series of small injections. It is affordable and will soften crow’s feet, lines between the brows and forehead creases.

4.  It can relieve other Health issues.

Botox has been shown to relieve excessive underarm and
hand sweating. Hyperhydrosis can be reduced with Botox injections relieving embarrassing underarm sweat stains. It has also been linked with managing pain for people who suffer from
migraines.

Brotox today is more mainstream then you think and chances are someone in your life has receive it and you may not know but you probably have said “wow, they really are aging well”. Schedule your free consultation with me today and we can discuss how this simple treatment can erase your stress lines and wrinkles.

Bro-Tox Anyone?

By. Dr. Clarissa Kroese, DO, Aesthetic Medicine

Listen up all you men out there that think Botox® is just for Women! Statistics today are showing otherwise. Every year more and more men are getting Botox®, Dysport® or Xeomin®. There are many reasons why but some may surprise you.

Some men are nudged by the “loving” person in their lives while others are realizing the impact aging and wrinkles can have on their daily life. The deep wrinkles between your eyes, also known as the 11’s, can sometimes make you appear unapproachable or even angry. This can be a negative when it comes to business when it can pay to have a softer more approachable appearance. Also it doesn’t hurt to look a little more youthful in the dating world as well.

If you or the man in your life would like to look more youthful, call today to your free consultation 248-524-0620. We will sit down with you and answer all your questions. Our goal is to help you look more youthful and natural.

Botox: Brides are Opting for Medical Treatments Prior to Their Wedding Day

It is becoming more and more common for future brides to consult a plastic surgeon prior to the Big Day! More brides are exploring their options with Botox and other cosmetic procedures to help erase the years of stress, worrying, studying and natural aging. A 35 year old bride can’t look 20 over night, but if she can look younger and more refreshed after a treatment with Botox, then why not? We continue to see an increase in the number of brides exploring their cosmetic options.

Approximately 11 million people have discovered the benefit of Botox since 2002. Botox is a nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, which reduces the movement that causes moderate to severe lines to form.

Looking and feeling good about yourself is important, so it’s obvious why this simple non-invasive treatment is becoming increasingly popular among brides-to-be and mother-in-laws to be! Today’s brides are willing to spend to get the desired results and look more refreshed for their wedding day. Botox is an excellent way to ultimately restore the youthful appearance she once knew.

For those men and women who are looking for a way to restore their fresh, plump, youthful face without going under the “knife” – facial fillers like Juvederm are an excellent option. Whether the patient is seeking fuller lips and cheeks or a more defined chin, aesthetic enhancements like Juvederm make it entirely possible.

Juvederm is the smooth gel filler that is used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose by adding volume to the hollowed areas.

With just one treatment, it is possible to get smooth and natural-looking results that can last up to a year.

The fact that Juvederm is so fast to administer and can be done in a regular in office visit, makes it even more desirable to my patients who are looking for a non-invasive way to restore their youth. And, the fact that the results last for up to a year is an additional bonus!
