Getting a facial doesn’t just have to be a pampering experience. Facials along with other treatments can help you keep your skin beautiful and fight the signs of aging. Microneedling is a great treatment to use in conjunction with facials. There are many benefits to combining these two treatments.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a process in which tiny wounds are made in the surface of the skin to promote collagen and elastin production. An infusion of natural collagen and elastin will help the skin have a better texture, as well as being plumper. Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are all important in the body for keeping the skin healthy and beautiful.

Improved Mental Health

Our bodies come into contact with toxins every day, and most of them are relatively harmless to the human body simply because the body automatically flushes it from the system. However, there are some compounds, such as heavy metals, that do not flush from the system naturally. For these issues, chelation therapy is necessary. It can also be useful for other conditions. Here’s what chelation therapy is and what it can be used for.
What Chelation Therapy Is
Chelation therapy is an intravenous therapy that removes heavy metals and other substances from the body. It is made up of special chemicals that are designed to bond to metals in the blood. They are then flushed from the body through your urine. It can be done very quickly in an afternoon appointment.

As we age, our bodies change dramatically. One of the changes that most men and women undergo is a reduction in sexual hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. For women, this change is called menopause; while for men, it is called andropause. While hormone replacement therapy isn’t necessary all the time, there are some signs that bioidentical hormone therapy might be right for you.
One of the primary symptoms of not having the right levels of hormones is fatigue. Fatigue goes beyond just being tired. When you are fatigued, you feel as though you did not sleep at all, even though you may have slept for many hours. No amount of sleep seems to be enough, you wake up tired, and no amount of coffee helps you get started in the morning.

Most people have heard of Botox because it has been a preferred treatment for celebrities for years. Botox and Dysport are both treatments that contain a specific type of neurotoxin called A botulinum toxin. They both work by relaxing muscles to promote a desired effect, such as reducing lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions. However, Botox and Dysport have several differences.
Differences in Makeup
Botox is made up of a specific type of A botulinum toxin called onabotulinumtoxinA, or ONA, while Dysport is made up of a type of A botulinum toxin called abobotulinumtoxinA, or ABO. Both of these are effective for relaxing facial muscles to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Their manufacturing process is also different, which means that the nontoxin proteins that they contain are different. This difference in makeup means that Dysport has a faster onset and lasts longer than Botox.
