What to Know Before Getting Botox


Wanting to turn back the time on our skin is nothing new to human nature, but with the invention of Botox came the ability to do just that without surgery of any kind. Botox has only been used for cosmetic treatments in the U.S. for 17 years. It was approved for this purpose by the FDA in 2002, but it has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures ever, with billions being spent on the treatment every year. The treatment works by injecting botulinum toxins, which eliminates wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles in the face. It sounds scary, but if done correctly there are often little to no side effects. Here are some things you need to know if you are considering Botox for yourself.

Aged Hands? Here’s How to Revitalize Them!


A lot of things change as we become older. That youthful glow that once eminated from our very pores begins to dim, leaving us feeling like life is leaving us behind.

The 411 on Fillers

If you’re considering dermal fillers or botulinum toxins to turn back time (or at least slow it down), you’re not alone. Cosmetic injectables were up over 8 percent in 2016 from the previous year, and there’s no sign of that demand decreasing at Dr. Peterson’s office. These procedures are popular because they’re a minimally invasive way to reduce or erase fine lines and wrinkles, can be used on many areas of the face, and can give patients the results they want pretty quickly. But exactly how fast do they work and how long do they last?
