It’s hard to believe that 2023 is already more than half way over. But the plus side is that summer is just beginning and there’s still time to get that perfect summer look. We’ve already seen some trends in what people are looking to get done this year and in todays post we wanted to share some of the top procedures we recommend this year.
1. Vampire Facelift
The Vampire Facelift is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that has become a popular trend in the world of anti-aging. Unlike surgical methods, this outpatient procedure involves extracting platelets from your blood and creating a customized dermal filler to help you achieve a more youthful appearance. Instead of using foreign substances, this procedure harnesses the regenerative potential of your own blood and reinjects it into your skin. By utilizing regenerative cells found in your blood, the Vampire Facelift can add volume to your skin and stimulate the growth of new tissue. The result is a radiant and youthful appearance.
Other names for this non-surgical cosmetic procedure include:
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
- Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM)
- Selphyl, “Vampire Filler”
- Dracula Facelift
The Vampire Facelift has been shown to be a successful procedure in replenishing volume in the cheeks, lips, and under the eyes. It also works to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead.
2. BOTOX Upper Lip Flip
James Christian Cosmetics offers the BOTOX® Upper Lip Flip as a great alternative to fillers for individuals seeking a more subtle improvement to their lips. This procedure utilizes Botox to gently roll the upper lip outward, producing the appearance of fuller lips without the need for injectable fillers. By administering only a few quick injections, the BOTOX® Upper Lip Flip treatment effectively relaxes the muscles of the upper lip, causing it to slightly curl upward and expose more of the lip surface.
To achieve a BOTOX® lip flip, the experts at James Christian Cosmetics administer a number of injections above the upper lip into the orbicularis oris muscle, which surrounds the mouth. This relaxes the muscle temporarily above the upper lip, resulting in a subtle upward roll of the lip, creating a fuller and more defined look. This muscle relaxation also aids in reducing the appearance of vertical lines around the lips.
In the majority of patients, they will start seeing the effects of the treatment within a few days, and the results will be fully visible after approximately one week. The impact of a BOTOX® Upper Lip Flip usually persists for around three to four months.
3. BOTOX Neck Bands
As we age, our neck develops two vertical bands called platysma muscle bands. These bands can become more distinct over time as they are constantly in use and tend to enlarge from excessive activity. Moreover, as our skin loses volume and becomes looser with age, the neck bands become more noticeable and contribute to an aged appearance.
In English language, the following paragraph can be paraphrased as: When BOTOX® is administered into the muscle, it hinders the transmission of certain neural signals, which in turn relaxes any excessive muscle activity. When injected into the vertical bands of the neck, BOTOX® has the ability to relax the muscles, reducing their visibility and resulting in a smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking neck. Typically, the effects of BOTOX® on neck bands last for about 4-6 months, and similar to any Botox treatment, it can be repeated once the initial results start to fade.
You can enhance the tightness of your neck bands, elevate the neck, and revitalize your overall look by opting for a specific treatment on the neck bands using BOTOX® from James Christian Cosmetics.
AQUAGOLD® is a system that utilizes micro-infusion, micro-needling, and micro channeling to enhance the effectiveness of injectable treatments such as Botox, fillers, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
AQUAGOLD® employs a handheld vial with 20 micro-needles, measuring a mere 600 micrometers (0.6 mm) in length and 130 micrometers (0.13 mm) in width, to
AQUAGOLD® offers a new and exciting way to rejuvenate your skin using the same injectables (such as Botox) or PRP as traditional treatments, but with a different outcome. By combining the benefits of the injectable with a micro-needling delivery system, you can improve your skin tone, reduce acne scarring, brighten and smooth your skin, minimize pores, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles more effectively than with just a regular facial injection.
5. Lash Lift & Tint
A Lash Lift & Tint service provided by James Christian Cosmetics offers an easy and effective solution to enhance your appearance and instantly enhance the brightness and openness of your eyes. This treatment is fast, painless, and reasonably priced, giving your lashes the attractive curl and flutter you have desired.
Think of it as a way to permanently curl your lashes and have mascara that never fades. The Lash Lift & Tint treatment consists of two separate procedures, both aimed at giving you beautiful and fluttery eyelashes that last for weeks. The Lash Lift procedure imitates the effect of using an eyelash curler, making your lashes bend upward, resulting in a longer and more open and bright appearance for your eyes. In the meantime, a lash tint is comparable to tinting your eyebrows or applying multiple layers of mascara. This gives your eyelashes a darker, thicker, and fuller look. It is particularly striking for individuals with naturally light-colored lashes, such as blondes or redheads.
