DR. ARMAS AND NURSE KASSIDY ARE GRADUATES OF THE PACIFIC TRAINING INSTITUTE FOR FACIAL AESTHETICS & THERAPEUTICS - AN ADVANCED ANATOMY-BASED TRAINING ORGANIZATION KNOWN FOR IT'S HIGH-CALIBER OF TEACHING AND PATIENT CARE PRACTICES. AS GRADUATES, DR. ARMAS AND KASSIDY JOIN SOME OF THE MOST HIGHLY TRAINED AND QUALIFIED BOTULINUM TOXIN AND FACIAL REJUVENATION PRACTITIONERS IN NORTH AMERICA. 

WHAT IS "BOTOX" OR "DYSPORT"?

BOTOX AND DYSPORT ARE THE TRADE NAMES FOR BOTULINUM TOXIN TYPE A (BONT), A PURIFIED TOXIN PRODUCED BY THE BACTERIUM CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM.  IN EXTREMELY SMALL DOSES, DR. ARMAS AND/OR KASSIDY INJECTS BONT DIRECTLY INTO THE SPECIFIC MUSCLES THAT CAUSE WRINKLES SUCH AS FROWN LINES, CROW’S FEET AROUND THE EYES, FURROWS, PLATYSMAS BANDS AROUND THE NECK, AND MORE.  THESE ISOLATED MUSCLES ARE “FROZEN” BY THE BONT INJECTIONS AND CAN NO LONGER CONTRACT. THE ACTION OF FROWNING IS STOPPED, AND FROWN LINES DIMINISH. A SIMILAR PROCEDURE CAN BE DONE IN THE BROW AREA TO PRODUCE A “LIFT” IN THE FOREHEAD AND PROVIDE A "BOTOX BROW LIFT". BONT CAN BE COMBINED WITH OTHER DERMAL FILLERS, TO HELP RESTORE THE YOUTHFUL FEATURES OF YOUR FACE IN A NATURAL LOOKING WAY.

WHAT ARE DIFFERENT THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS TO BONT?
