Human being are animated and as a result these expressions make their mark on the face..sometimes permanently. ..giving an aged look. Though the appearance gives a look of wisdom not everyone wants to show it that way. Just an incidental finding by a Canadian Ophthalmologist lead to a mullti-billion dollar industry of beauty and anti-aging, Botox being the leader. Billions of procedures have been done with Botox worldwide and it has proven as one of the safest and time tested anti-aging treatments out there, giving a dramatic improvement in the facial expressions. Botox is now heralded as one of the most sought after procedures by folks from all walks of life from celebrities and models to men and women of even the middle class back grounds.
A very tiny needle is used to inject precise dose of a chemical known as Botox in to the various muscles of expression to temporarily relax those muscles and thus obliterating the expression lines. FDA has approved cosmetic Botox for the Glabellar Frown lines for people between 18-65 years of age. All other uses are off label applications of Botox. The results show within a few days and reach a peak by around 10 days. The effect last for 3- 5 months. In general most people qualify for Botox, but for some it may not be suitable. Botox is also not suitable for those whose wrinkles are from chronic sun damage and loss of collagen. . In addition to cosmetic procedures Botox is also used to control excessive sweating in the under arms and palms. Please call us to schedule a consultation with our physician to see if Botox is right for you
One of the common outcomes of aging and expressions in the lower part of the face is that often hated laugh lines, also called parentheses! We can fill them up! At Anara we use Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse to fill these gaps. The most common areas treated are laugh lines, marionette lines and hollows and depressions on the sides of the face. Some deep scars and lipo atrophies can also be treated. Depending on the filler used these fillers last anywhere from 6 months to 18 months. In addition to instantaneously filling the gap, they also help in stimulating the collagen in the deeper layers of skin. Fillers are the third most commonly performed cosmetic procedures. Usually there is no downtime to this procedure. Restylane and Juvederm are cross linked hyaluronic acid that is injected to the deeper layer of skin with a needle to fill the gap. Radiesse is made from Calcium Hydroxyapatiite and placed much deeper in the skin. Many fillers are used in Europe and these 3 are the most commonly used fillers worldwide.

When someone commented to this big guy, “You have to get in shape!” his response was, “Round is a shape!” while jokes aside there are many people for whom this is a serious and frustrating problem. There are some who are able to lose some weight generally but some areas are very stubborn and just does not seem to go away. For some women it is the cellulite that is bothersome. There is a saying:
“ 80% of women have cellulite. And 20% think they have.” We have a new solution to control the stubborn fat in some areas like love handles, lower abdomen, thighs and arms. While there is no substitute for regular exercise, proper diet and a healthy life style these procedures can help you other efforts to give encouraging and visible results. We use a combination of radio frequency energy, infra red light, and vacuum suction to smooth out these stubborn areas, cause circumference reduction and reduce the appearance of cellulite. This is not a weight loss procedure, nor a substitute for traditional surgical or laser liposuction. But those who benefit from these procedures are astounded with the results that they were not able to achieve before. Please visit our website for some before after procedures and schedule a consultation with one of our professionals, who will advise how the procedure might help you.
