A youthful appearance helps one both feel more energetic and charm his or her way past bouncers at age-restricted bouncy castles. Jump into a younger look with today's Groupon: for $69, you get $150 toward Botox, Restylane, or Sculptra injectable facial treatments from the office of Dr. Mark E. Krugman in Santa Ana.
Dr. Krugman and his team of board-certified plastic surgeons have amassed decades of combined experience turning medical techniques toward bodily beautification. Careful pretreatment evaluation and consultation helps determine the most appropriate treatment plan for each face in their care. Botox ($390 for 33 units, the average quantity needed for best results) stops wrinkle-causing frown muscles in their tracks with a quick, noninvasive injection between the brows and a series of clown auditions. The 10-minute treatment continues its forehead-refurbishing effects over the next few days, perking up countenances for an average of three to four months.
Restylane ($550/syringe) restores the skin’s elasticity and fullness that passing time selfishly takes with it, with a syringe of clear gel that mimics the body's naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Once the substance has done its work filling in the wrinkles that accumulate between the nose and mouth, it will, like a makeshift government run by snowmen, eventually be dissolved by organic processes. Treatment can take up to 30 minutes.
Another method of treating nasolabial folds, Sculptra ($800/session) works deep within the dermis to prop up the body's existing stores of collagen. The biodegradable, biocompatible substance works over time for subtle, natural-looking effects, shielding onlookers from the jarring suspicion that you’ve vacationed in the space-time continuum. The average patient schedules three sessions over the course of a few months for a rejuvenating effect that can persist for up to two years. Groupon purchasers may qualify for additional rebates of up to $100 and discounts if they pair injections with other services.
Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
