Preventative Botox Can Preserve Your Youthful Look
There’s nothing fine about fine lines and wrinkles; they make you feel and look older, adding to your self-consciousness and decreasing your self-confidence. If you don’t have these undereye wrinkles yet, or fine lines elsewhere on your face, you can stop their destructive power before they start, with preventative Botox from Refresh. If you live in the areas of Rittenhouse, Center City, or Southampton, Pennsylvania, there’s no need to worry about wrinkles if you take steps to prevent them early on by visiting Refresh.
Botox is short for Botulinum Toxin, but in spite of the negative connotation of the word “toxin,” it’s not harmful. Botulinum Toxin is available in any one of three common-name types:
- Botox (the most common)
All three have been approved by the FDA and are recognized worldwide as effective cosmetic treatments.
The Benefits of Botox
By relaxing the muscles in the face, Botox smooths all kinds of unwanted fine lines, frown lines, and wrinkles for a more youthful look for men and women alike. This works in all areas of the face:
- Eyes (crow’s feet and under eye wrinkles)
- Nose (“11” lines, bunny lines)
- Mouth (smoker lines)
Whether you’re a man or a woman, improving the appearance of your face can improve your mood and boost your self-confidence. Additional benefits of Botox include its use as a treatment for migraines, reducing excessive underarm sweating, smoothing the neck, contouring the jawline, and as a TMJ treatment.
Other Options to Improve Your Appearance
Microneedles are injected into the deep layers of skin to increase your body’s production of two bodily proteins, elastin and collagen, both of which help your skin become healthier and look younger. This noninvasive procedure helps heal scars, reduce acne, and remove stretch marks for a rejuvenating effect.
Reduce the presence of your double chin (or submental fullness, the more technical term) with this FDA-approved injectable designed just for jaw-slimming. Weight gain, genetics, and aging can all cause your jawline to lose its thin, tight, youthful appearance, but the jaw-slimming effects of Kybella make it the noninvasive alternative to liposuction procedures. The key ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which naturally absorbs the fat in the submental fullness and dissolves it. For the most permanent effects (even if you put on weight and acquire fat in other areas of the body), we recommend two or three treatments over the course of a three- to six-month timespan.
If the top layer of skin is unhealthy, ravaged by wrinkles, acne, or discoloration, we apply a safe chemical solution to the face to peel away this top layer and allow healthy cells, previously beneath the surface, to become the new top layer. The chemical solution lingers in the skin, unclogging pores for long-term rejuvenation, and is engineered to be gentle and suit the needs of each patient. Our medical-grade chemical peels don’t leave the painful raw skin that earlier versions of this treatment often caused. To make your skin look and feel healthier, visit the leading source of integrative medicine in Rittenhouse, Center City, and Southampton, PA. We offer preventative botox and all the other treatments listed above, as well as dermal fillers, non-ablative laser resurfacing, and life-coaching.

The natural aging process, outside lifestyle factors and genetics can all be causes of wrinkles and folds in the face.
