with Anti-Aging Solutions
Injectable Solutions to Keep You Looking Young
Reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and more with anti-aging injectable treatments! With a variety of available options, a consultation is key in determining which treatment is best for you.
As an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment, BOTOX© Cosmetic temporarily treats and improves moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, creases between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet caused by repeated muscle contractions over the years. The 10-minute injection treatment reduces this muscle activity by working beneath the surface of your skin. Results typically start appearing within 24-72 hours and last up to six months or longer.
Treats and Improves: crow’s feet, eyebrow frown lines, forehead lines, underarm sweating, migraines
Chronic headaches and migraines are type of another uncomfortable, painful condition that can be treated with Botox; the injections can prevent headaches and migraines before they start! Results are typically seen as soon as four weeks after the first treatment, and two treatments are encouraged spaced 12 weeks apart. On average, Botox prevents 8-9 headache days per month, making it the #1 prescribed branded Chronic Migraine treatment!
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION & APPROVED USES
BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours to weeks) after injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic:

BOTOX® Cosmetic dosing units are not the same as, or comparable to, any other botulinum toxin product.

Forever Young BBL©
The name says it all—Forever Young BroadBand Light (BBL) is a light treatment that slows down the aging clock and keeps you looking young! Sciton’s Forever Young BBL is a sophisticated technology that optimally delivers infrared and visible light, penetrating the outer and deeper layers of the skin to stimulate changes at a molecular level and visible improvement to the outer layers. The gene expression of older, damaged skin cells changes to more closely resemble the genes expressed in younger skin cells. The cells are reinvigorated, and over time, the result is an improvement in skin firmness, elasticity, and appearance. Patients who receive regular treatments experience clearer, smoother, and more youthful skin. Urban Effects owner Susan Cross was the first to bring this Sciton technology to Des Moines in 2012!
