BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.
When a US specialist purchases BOTOX® Cosmetic through Allergan or a distributor authorized by Allergan, it is guaranteed for quality. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a biologic product and follows strict manufacturing, storage, and transportation procedures that prevent it from being compromised.

Recent years have brought enormous technological advancements and one of the hottest trends with real results: the Plasma Pen. The FDA has cleared this device to be used to decrease wrinkles, fine lines and tighten skin (reduce skin laxity) with results for 3 or more years!
Just like the scaffolding of a building then, over time, it will begin to weaken and rust, it will loses its flexibility and strength and, increasingly it will become unable to bear the load it was originally designed to support. It will eventually buckle, sag and collapse. This is similar to what occurs in our skin. As we age, the scaffolding of our skin deteriorates and this causes it to wrinkle and sag. Our dermal layer thins, we produce less and less collagen, we lose laxity and texture and the elastin that underpins our skins elasticity (not least by cross-linking with collagen – like the brackets on a scaffolding) begin to wear out, deform and ‘slide’ over the collagen fibrils. This prevents them from maintaining a solid structure.
The Plasma Pen is entirely designed to dramatically repair, reverse and mitigate all the negative effects of aging by blending our state-of-the-art nitrogen plasma technology with hard science, sophisticated technique, best practice, elite training, world class consultations and the very best pre and post treatment products and aftercare. With stunning, long lasting and completely natural looking results, very simply — the plasma pen is able to significantly tighten, lift, resurface, rejuvenate and regenerate practically any area of the skin. It is a cost-effective and highly compelling alternative to all other medi-aesthetic procedures you may know – including injectables, fillers, microneedling, laser, mesotherapy, dermabrasion and chemabrasion and most (if not all) cosmetic surgery procedures.
