too-old-or-too-young-to-do-laser-or-radiofrequency-treatments

[ad_1] This is a good question, because as we age, we want to preserve as much as possible: The shape of our face by preserving volume.  We lose about 250 cc of volume in our faces as we age  (25-90) if we don’t replace it.

micro-botox-dysport-for-flushing-pore-size-etc

[ad_1] I think this term is confusing for consumers.  For example, those of us who have been proponents of a very “natural” look with these muscle relaxers, have been using this approach for years.  It keeps some movement in the face so we can still be expressive.  And…..it prevents that “frozen” look.  Here are some different uses of “micro-Botox.&#...

when-should-you-ask-for-a-refund

[ad_1] This is an important question.  But maybe even more important is …how do you ask for a refund.  This is a tough skill to learn even for some seasoned negotiators and lawyers. Since Clear & Brilliant is 1/2 of a Fraxel (we call it baby Fraxel or Fraxel lite) in our office, it has the potential to aggravate pigment problems. In rare instances, it can cause pigment p...
