Turn Your Frown Upside Down

Turn Your Frown Upside Down

A Botox or Dysport treatment can turn that frown upside down!

While Botox and Dysport treatments are famous for removing lines from the face, the injections are also used to turn up the corners of the mouth, a frown that could be turned upside down. 

The Depressor Anguli Oris is a muscle that can pull the mouth corners down, giving a person the appearance of looking sad or mad. Botox or Dysport injected in these muscles will help release the mouth corners to a straighter appearance.

If there is loss of volume around the mouth corners, dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm can help rebuild tissue structure in this area.

These cosmetic products can achieve great results making people appear refreshed, relaxed and happier. Turning a frown upside down with Botox or Dysport costs typically less than $75, that’s icing on the cake!

Our Injection Nurse will help decide the best treatment for you. Contact Sarah or Jill.

Innovative Directions in Health Offers Micronutrient Testing

What is Micronutrient Testing?

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells.  Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies.

Be Proactive, NOT Reactive

Achieve a higher level of wellness. Eating a balanced diet, exercising and taking a multivitamin is simply not enough. Each person’s body is unique in its own way. Due to the complexity of the human body, an individualized healthcare approach is the only way to guarantee optimal results.

Why test Micronutrients?

Nutrient status is a vital foundation of health. Each micronutrient plays an indispensable role in promoting optimal cell function. When some cells do not function at their best, the foundation of our health is compromised, setting the stage for the development of disease. Identifying and correcting nutritional deficiencies is an important step in the long-term maintenance of optimal health.

Vitamin deficiencies aren’t just a reflection of diet. Since we are all biochemically unique, nutrient deficiencies will vary from patient to patient, and do not necessarily correlate directly with nutrient intake, even among those with similar health conditions. Many factors beyond diet determine whether nutrient function is adequate. These include biochemical individuality, genetic predisposition, absorption and metabolism, age, disease conditions and medications.

What results will I see?

Lab results include an overview page with all deficiencies listed, numeric and graphic reports easily identifying deficiencies and repletion and supplementation recommendations, such as the example above.

FUDGE ANYONE? I LOVE CHOCOLATE! I LOVE DESSERTS! I LOVE SUGAR! I have always loved sweets..and always will. The only problem…I am just too busy for the sugar crash I get within 30 minutes of that delightful treat…It's simply not worth it. Needless to say, I have been on a mission to find Fabulous REAL chocolate treats that have everything good for me in every bite. If you love sweets like me…give this one a try! They are so rich..I can only eat a max of 2! Shocking!       Fabulous Fudge Recipe:

  • Cut a piece of parchment paper to line the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish
  • Chop 8 oz unsweetened chocolate (the best you can find)
  • Melt in a double boiler, or microwave stopping and stirring every 15 seconds
  • In a mixer, beat 8 oz cream cheese and 3/4 zylitol, erythritol, or I enjoy suzanne somers somersweet (NO Aspertame products!) Beat til creamy.
  • Add the cooled melted chocolate and mix well.
  • Add 6 Tablespoons heavy cream, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp sea salt and 1/2 cup organic no sugar added peanut butter, almond butter or sunflower seed butter.
  • You may also add 1/4 cup nuts if you enjoy nut fudge!

Now Offering VOLUMA

Now Offering VOLUMA

DEFY GRAVITY. A MORE YOUTHFUL PROFILE STARTS WITH THE APPLES OF YOUR CHEEKS.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel instantly adds volume to the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss.

It can give you contour and a subtle lift for up to 2 years with optimal treatment.

Here is what our Nurse, Sarah has to say about Voluma….

“My favorite area to fill for clients is cheeks! As you age, it’s not just about wrinkles, there is nothing more youthful on a woman than full cheeks!

Filling in this area also tightens up the lower face that begins to sag as we age. The best part is that no one knows what you had done, just that you look refreshed and beautiful!

Check out these pictures from MY Voluma transformation.”
