IV Vitamin Infusions vs. Daily Vitamins By Mouth

With the start of the new year comes many who are pursuing healthier, happier and a more productive 2018. Did you know that over 50% of the American population admits to taking a vitamin or supplement daily? Whether it be to correct deficiencies, boost our immune system, lose weight or to promote general health and wellness, most of us are guilty of taking vitamins by mouth on a regular basis. But are they really "working"?

Vitamins and minerals have different absorption rates, but on average a mere 20-30% of the vitamins you are taking by mouth are being absorbed by your body. Most of the vitamin and its nutritional value are being lost in your GI tract. This means that you are getting approximately 20% of the benefits of your vitamins! How do we fix this?

Well, at Omni Sculpt MD: Anti-Aging and Wellness Spa, we offer IV Vitamin Infusions that are 100% absorbed into your system. By administering vitamins directly into your bloodstream, you are not losing any of its value to the process of digestion. IV Vitamin and Nutrient Infusions can provide necessary vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids FAR MORE effectively than pills alone can. Vitamin infusions allow higher dosages of targeted supplements, with better absorption, and faster delivery to the cells throughout your body.

Botox or Fillers...What do I need?

"Would I get Botox or Filler?" It seems to be the million dollar question . These two are very different treatments which are used to do different things.

Botox or Dysport can be used in many areas of the face to relax the targeted muscle, and soften wrinkles or lines. The injectable treatment Botox/Dysport is the best choice to address the lines and folds that are caused by facial expressions. These wrinkles that are produced by facial movement are called dynamic wrinkles. Botox/Dysport is used to temporarily block the signals from the nerves to the muscles, which reduces movement in the affected area. In turn, the skin is smoothed which reduces that appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botox/Dysport is a fantastic way to prevent the formation of dynamic wrinkles. It works to atrophy the muscle so that these wrinkles are unable to form as you age.

Fillers are also an injectable treatment; however, instead of impeding muscle movement, they act by replacing lost volume and plumping up the skin by replenishing natural hyaluronic acid and collagen which has depleted with time. This reduces static wrinkles (wrinkles which are visible without facial movement) and also restores youthful fullness in the cheeks and lips. Commonly, patients believe Botox is used to plumps lips, but it is fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane that produce a plump set of lips.

In certain cases, such as deep forehead lines or deep glabellar (between the eyes) lines, Botox/Dysport and filler can be used in combination to get rid of the line completely. For smile lines around the mouth, a hyaluronic acid filler works well to fill in the area and get rid of the line. Smile lines around the eyes respond well to injections of Botox. Botox can last from 3-4 months and the duration of fillers depends on the specific filler used. They can range anywhere from 8 months to 2 years.

Perfectly Imperfect: Scar Correction

Botox and Lip Fillers. Two of the most common phrases associated with the word "Med-Spa." A common misconception in the world of cosmetics and aesthetics. Botox and FIller. Just the outer layer of what can be done in a medical spa.  At Omni Sculpt MD, we had the opportunity to take a woman's deepest insecurity and correct it, and quickly. Here is her story....

As we walked in and greeted this beautiful woman, her eyes were focused on the ground, her voice was soft, with her hair covering her eyes. She slightly glanced up at us with a soft "hello." Her arms were crossed at her chest and she was squeezing her purse tight to her body. It was obvious that she was uncomfortable. "I saw that you all do Botox and I hope it can help me." She didn't care about the wrinkles on her face. She was much more concerned with the "hole" in her forehead. This was not a corrective issue that Botox could fix...

A few years ago, she slipped outside, fell face down onto ice and split her forehead open. She had many sutures to correct the laceration but what resulted left her feeling insecure and ashamed to show her face. The fall resulted in a very obvious, concave dent in the middle of her forehead. We brainstormed, contemplating what would help her most. After her consultation, we decided upon dermal filler to “fill” this area in her forehead. We used 0.6 ml of Restylane Defyne to fill the hollow area in the center of her face. The procedure took approximately 30 minutes and THE RESULTS WERE AMAZING!! She joyfully cried after the procedure, exclaiming “I never thought I would be able to fix this.” No more hiding behind bangs and no more insecurity. Our procedures are not only making our patients look great but they’re making them feel INCREDIBLE!
