Unfortunately, these characteristics diminish and degrade as we age. We commonly use Botox to relax the facial muscles, easing out the lines and wrinkles that are caused by excessive use of those muscles, but new evidence shows t…hat Botox does more than this.

How Can We Awaken Our Body's Own Rejuvenating Potentials?

How Can We Awaken Our Body’s Own Rejuvenating Potentials?

Our body has some amazing potentials to heal and rejuvenate itself. When we accidentally cut ourselves, healing pathways are activated and the wound is quickly sealed. With a surge of growth factors, fibroblasts and other stem cells are activated to recruit new blood vessels and form new collagen and other components of youthful healthy skin. You might have noticed that the skin over a recently healed wound often looks healthier, firmer, smoother and brighter than the surrounding skin, an indicator of how our body regenerates new healthy skin during the healing process. Only if we could trick our body to do its magic to the skin everywhere without the need to suffer any wounds!

How Can Dermal Fillers Reverse Years Of Aging In Minutes?

Aging is a complex process that involves interaction of several genetic and environmental factors.

No matter what the causes are, the aging involves certain changes in our skin hallmarked by damage and loss of connective tissue of the skin.
