For those of us who are starting to see the first signs of aging, botox can be a godsend. Botox is a prescription medication that is injected into the muscles of the face. It works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, which causes the muscles to relax. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed out, giving the face a more youthful appearance.
Botox is most commonly used to treat forehead wrinkles, Crow’s feet, and lines around the mouth. The best part about botox is that it is non-surgical and has very few side effects. Most people experience only mild bruising and swelling at the injection site, which typically goes away within a day or two.
So if you’re looking for a way to turn back the clock without going under the knife, Highlands Salon and Medi Spa now offers botox services. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation.
Fillers, also sometimes called facial injectables, are cosmetic treatments that can help to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The most commonly used fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally found in the body. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid attracts and holds moisture, resulting in a more youthful appearance. In addition, fillers can also help to stimulate collagen production, resulting in even longer-lasting benefits. Facial injectables are a popular choice for people who want to achieve a more youthful look without undergoing surgery.
The treatments are relatively quick and easy, and there is no downtime required afterward. Fillers can also be customized to meet each individual’s needs and goals. Whether you’re looking to erase fine lines or plump up sunken cheeks, our dermal filler services that can help you achieve your desired look.
If you are interested in learning more, Highland Salon and Medi Spa would be happy to provide more information during a scheduled consultation.

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to restore lost volume for a more youthful appearance. Fillers can be used on the face to soften wrinkles and creases, restore fuller lips and even smooth out the skin on your hands.
Dermal fillers come in various forms, including Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptra and Bellafill. The most common fillers consist of non-animal hyaluronic acid. Other fillers consist of a synthetic suspended in aqueous gel, but also naturally occurring and naturally degraded by our own body.
Yes, dermal fillers can be used to correct acne scars, however, based upon the scars themselves, they may not be fully cured. An injection could cause a cold sore as the virus that causes cold sores can lay dormant in a person’s body until reactivated, which can be triggered by stress or trauma.
