Relaxed Expressions

Wrinkles around the eyes, also known as “laugh lines,” “crow’s feet,” or “periorbitol wrinkles” are one of the most common, and early signs of aging.

You don’t need to just accept laugh lines as a foregone conclusion. The Adams Center has non-surgical treatments for crow’s feet that include Botox, Total FX laser , Lux 1540, and the newest additions – Skin Anti-Aging Complex nutritional supplement, and OMNILUX new-U. By selectively combining these treatments we enable you to achieve the best result.

Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport work by reducing the activity of the muscles that cause laugh lines. Botox is a purified form of the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It’s a safe, effective, time proven way to diminish the wrinkles around eyes, forehead, lips and neck.

TotalFX is the “gold standard” for overall non-surgical skin rejuvenation. Part of the UltraPulse system, the TotalFX laser includes both . . .

OMNILUX new-U is the only FDA approved hand-held device that allows you to minimize crow’s feet, and fine lines and wrinkles with both red light, and IR light therapy.

OMNILUX new-U works by stimulating your skin at a cellular level. The light frequency used in new-U stimulates collagen production, increases blood flow to the cells, helps increase tissue oxygenation, and detoxification. Additionally, new-U has the benefit of increasing your skin’s cells ability to absorb topical serums, and skin care products.

OMNILUX new-U is safe and painless. Clinical studies show that new-U produces the best results within 4 – 8 weeks of use. Results can be maintained with 2 – 4 treatments per month.

Don’t Believe the Hype About “Botox Breast Lifts”

Recently there have been several stories in the media discussing a “Botox Breast Lift.” This non-surgical procedure is highly speculative, and has offered incredibly mixed results for the patients who have undergone this treatment.

Botox works in preventing wrinkles by weakening the muscle that has created the wrinkle in the first place. The principle here is similar. Essentially, Botox is used to weaken the pectoralis minor muscle (one of your chest muscles), which pulls the breast down. This causes the rhomboid muscle (a muscle at the top of your back) to pull up your back slightly, potentially giving the appearance of lifting your breasts, and also putting more pressure on your back.

The procedure requires three injections on each breast, and proponents say that it lasts approximately 10 – 12 weeks. However, injecting Botox into the chest muscles is not only dangerous, but . . .
