Over time, age, muscle movement, fat loss, gravity, and sun damage among other factors eventually take their toll and your face loses volume and sags, wrinkles develop and deepen.
Thankfully, science has allowed for the development of products to mitigate these effects and to correct signs of aging that are beyond what skincare products can do. Injectable treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox are now available to produce a remarkably younger-looking face.
Dermal fillers can be used for:
- Adding volume and smoothing out the deep creases that run from the nose to the mouth (called nasolabial folds or laugh lines) and ‘marionette’ lines (which run from the mouth to chin).
- Plumping thin lips and smoothing out vertical lines around the edges of the lips.
- Augmenting cheeks to enhance their shape, often restoring youthful fullness.
- Filling out depressions (hollows) under the eye area.
- Reducing indented scars to make them more even with surrounding skin.
- Increasing volume to fill out gauntness in the lower cheek or temple area, which most often occurs due to fat pads shifting beneath the surface of skin
Botox can be used for:
- to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- to treat excessive sweating, migraines, muscular disorders, and leaky bladders
Don’t confuse Botox with dermal fillers. Although both procedures involve injections, they are used for different purposes and target different areas of the face. Because they work in different manners, many people elect to get both Botox and dermal fillers in combination for a more effective treatment.
Botox is Botulinum toxin, a natural purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It is a treatment that has been approved by the FDA. It is a simple, non-surgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles.ut if you try it and then decide to stop, what happens?
‘There’s this myth that if you stop using Botox, your face will look wrinkly and your features will cascade into a degenerative state you never had’- but in fact, if you stop getting botox treatments, your face returns to its normal animation, and facial muscles return to normal strength (keep in mind that you have aged slightly since you were injected, which may be apparent when it wears off.)
Another fear that people have is that your face will be erased of all expression ‘Patients say they don’t want to look like they have had too much Botox.’ However, the treatment is not intended to remove every facial expression but rather to temporarily modify or soften expressions so you don’t look angry, sad or tired.
Which facial areas are typically treated?
The most popular areas for Botox are between the eyebrows (the two vertical lines called ‘the elevens‘), horizontal lines on the forehead, ‘bunny nose’ wrinkles (at the top of your nose on both sides), and laugh lines at the outer corners of your eyes (crow’s feet)
Does the treatment hurt?
A very fine needle is used for the 1-3 injections that are usually given per muscle. Some patients report minor and temporary discomfort from treatment.
Is there any downtime?
While there is no real downtime associated with this treatment, it is important to note that you may encounter some slight bruising and swelling immediately after treatment, due to the needle. However, this can easily be masked by makeup.
When does it start to work?
Usually, you will see the effects within three days. The maximum benefit is reached in one to two weeks.
How long does the effect last?
The results you will see from a single treatment will normally be sustained for approximately 3-6 months. You will notice a gradual fading of its effects over time.

Today’s sophisticated fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (or HA), which is a substance that’s found naturally in the body. HA is the skin’s key ingredient in skin hydration, and it creates volume and elasticity. As we age, we stop naturally producing HA. Dermal fillers are designed to reduce visible signs of aging by replacing the diminished HA and filling out the space below wrinkles, fine lines and cheek hollows. The fillers come in various formulations so we can target specific areas and skin types. More viscous (thicker) versions are used to recontour the face, lift and sculpt cheekbones, chin, temples and even the nose. Less viscous formulations are used to plump lips and fill in fine lines and cheek hollows. Dermal fillers are reversible. If you’re unhappy with your results, you can have another injection (an ‘eraser’ called hyaluronidase) administered to remove the product from your body.
How long do the results last?
Results are immediate. The length of results vary person to person, but can last anywhere from 6 months to one year depending on the facial area being treated and the type of filler used.
What is the recovery time for a procedure?
There is no significant downtime and you may resume normal activity immediately after treatment. Howver, you may experience some redness, tenderness, numbness, itching, or bruising at the injection site. This is completely normal and will disappear within a few days.
Following a lip treatment, swelling may last up to a week, sometimes causing an uneven appearance in the day post-treatment. This is not reflective of your “final result” in any way.

B12 VITAMIN SHOT
Vitamin B-12 is an essential nutrient that assists with several processes in your body including cellular regeneration, keeping your nervous system healthy and properly metabolizing food. Not getting enough Vitamin B-12 can affect your nerve function and contribute to some types of anemia.
Metabolism- The Role of Vitamin B12 in Weight Loss
Vitamin B-12 plays a role in metabolism, along with the other B vitamins. The vitamin helps your body convert food to energy, breaking carbohydrates down into more simple sugars. B vitamins also help your body digest proteins and fats. This helps your body use the food you eat more efficiently as fuel.
Understanding Vitamin B12
Red blood cells are made in the bone marrow, and millions are released into the bloodstream each day. A constant new supply of red blood cells is needed to replace old cells that break down. Red blood cells contain a protein called hemoglobin.
Hemoglobin binds to oxygen and transports oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body. To constantly make red blood cells and hemoglobin, you need a healthy bone marrow and nutrients such as iron and certain vitamins, including vitamin B12, which we get from food.
Symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiency
- Common symptoms include tiredness, lethargy, feeling faint, and becoming breathless.
- Less common symptoms include headaches, a thumping heart (palpitations), altered taste, loss of appetite, and ringing in the ears (tinnitus).
- You may look pale.
- Sore mouth and tongue.
If left untreated, problems with nerves and psychological problems can develop. Psychological problems may include depression, confusion, and difficulty with memory or even dementia. Nerve problems may include numbness, pins and needles, vision changes and unsteadiness.
PLATELET-RICH PLASMA THERAPY(PRP)–Facial Stem Cell Regeneration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment involves drawing a small volume of blood from your arm, centrifuging the blood to separate out the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells, and then adding the platelet-rich plasma back into your face-the elixir to youthful-looking skin. For extra absorption, micro-needling can be performed to the face before applying the plasma. The treatment infuses the skin with platelets which contain growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in our body and stimulate new collagen production in the face. PRP has a long history of being used in orthopaedic medicine and reconstructive surgery, and now its benefits are being applied to dermatology and cosmetology.
The treatment has become popularly known as the “Vampire Facelift” thanks to one celebrity, Kim Kardashian, who tried and recommended the procedure and gave it its nickname. Platelet Rich Plasma uses the patient’s natural biology to address skin defects and volume loss, triggering production of new cell growth in the patient’s body wherever it is injected. It helps the body heal itself the natural way and the possibility of an allergic reaction or infection is almost nil because the plasma comes from the patient’s own body.
What type of results can generally be expected?
There is a gradual improvement in the injected area over a 3- to 5-week period. Full correction occurs at 4-7 weeks and can last as long as 18 months. Better results are seen with a total of 2-3 treatments given 3-4 months apart.
For what types of patients is this procedure most suitable?
Any patient who wishes to reduce volume loss, fine lines, and textural changes of the skin is suitable for this procedure. It also for those looking for a natural approach to volumizing the face and treating or reducing fine lines.
How does PRP therapy compare with injectable dermal fillers?
PRP treatment can be combined with dermal fillers, Botox injections, skin needling and laser treatments. PRP builds tissue over time, whereas traditional HA-based dermal filler breaks down over time.
Benefits of PRP-treatment:
- Injected only with natural resources (your own plasma) – no artificial materials
- Helps your tissue regenerate collagen
- Improves skin texture and tone- smoother, brighter face
- No surgery or downtime
- Non-invasive facelift
- Rejuvenates scars-promotes skin healing from the inside out
What is the O-Shot, or Orgasm Shot?
The O-Shot is a simple nonsurgical procedure that uses the growth factors each woman has in her own body to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation to activate the Orgasm System. Female sexual dysfunction is not a small problem: 50% of women experience some degree of low libido and dysfunction. The O-Shot® procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelets are separated and concentrated. The Platelet Rich Plasma containing growth factors extracted from your blood is then injected into an area near the clitoris and into the area of the upper vagina that is most important for the sexual response (the “o-spot”). These areas are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before injection, causing patients to experience little or no discomfort during the procedure.
How does the O-Shot Work?
The doctor injects the PRP into an area called the “O-Spot” –a collection of structures that activate the orgasm system. The process of injecting trigger the platelets to release seven different growth factors that then activate the unipotent stem cells located in the vaginal and clitoral tissues to regenerate and thus become “younger” with improved functional potential. Women often enjoy some effects of the O-Shot almost immediately, as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance the sexual response. Women receiving O-Shot procedure have reported an increase in their sexual response within days and weeks of the treatment – and for many, the increase is dramatic.
What Women Tell Us After Having the O-Shot.

What is the P- Shot?
The P-Shot, is designed to deliver lasting improvements in sexual performance to men, especially those who have lost function from various causes. The reasons can be varied and include but are not limited to an enlarged prostate, peyronie’s disease, prostate cancer, the after-effects of surgery, drug side effects and other conditions such as diabetes.
The P-Shot procedure begins with a quick and easy blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, the growth factors are extracted from your blood and concentrated into the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is then placed into areas of the penis that are most important for the sexual response. These areas are numbed with a powerful local anesthetic cream before treatment, yielding little or no discomfort during the procedure.
How does P-Shot Work?
Platelet Rich Plasma contains many growth factors and healing factors and has regenerative abilities and thus stimulates healing and rejuvenation. The resulting benefits typically include tissue growth that increases growth of new blood vessels and improved circulation within the penis, stronger erections, increased sensation and pleasure and enhanced sexual performance. Some men report changes in girth and length of the penis. Many of these benefits are experienced immediately after receiving the injection. And, because the treatment uses the patient’s own blood derived plasma, it is non-allergenic and free of harmful side effects.
What will the P-Shot do for you?
Although each man’s experience varies, most men report these benefits following the procedure and post-treatment protocol:
- Increases firmness of erection
- Increases blood flow and circulation
- Improved sexual capabilities
- Increase sexual stamina
- Increases sensation and pleasure
