Dr. Sajadi, owner and director of Bonus Image Aesthetics, smoothes complexions with carefully administered injections of FDA-approved Botox. With the 20 units of Botox, patients can temporarily free their brows of glabellar lines formed from repetitive frowning and aggressive eyelid clapping. Once Dr. Sajadi infuses foreheads with the prescription medicine, the solution actively blocks nerve impulses to decrease the activity of wrinkle-forming muscles. Frown lines may continue fading away for up to a month after the 30-minute procedure, producing a smoother countenance that can provide patients with up to four months of unquestioned food-ordering from the kids' menu.

Organic ingredients wait to escape the confines of RSVP Med Spa's collection of skincare products from RSVP Med Spa Cosmeceuticals, Neocutis, SkinCeuticals, Epionce, Colorescience, and NIA24.

The physical sensations of being at the beach?the stress-melting warmth, the calm brought on by lapping waves?are what manager Kristen tries to recreate in her jade massage bed studio.
