Many factors contribute to facial lines and wrinkles such as aging, bone loss, sun exposure, smoking and even years of muscle movement. The good news is those lines caused by muscle movement can be improved with neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. These products relax the muscles that lead to lines and wrinkles. Over time, if not corrected, scars will form, therefore, it is beneficial to start using neurotoxins before wrinkles become permanent at rest. Some clients are afraid of using a product that has toxin in its name. This is a common comment. Neurotoxins do not contain the bacterium Clostridium botulinum that causes botulism. Neurotoxins are injected very superficially into the skin, therefore, do not penetrate the bloodstream sufficiently to cause the symptoms associated with botulism. The amount required to cause symptoms of botulism exceeds approximately 100 times the amount injected into the skin during cosmetic treatments. There are many reasons why people should not be afraid of this wonderful low risk treatment. Continue reading “Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin: Which Should I Choose to Erase My Lines?” »

Therefore, we use medications that address T3 and T4 such as WP Thyroid, Nature-Throid, Armour, and Cytomel. Diet also can aid in thyroid and other medical issues. Eighty percent of symptoms can be healed through the gut. So, here at Hermann Wellness, we have detox and anti-inflammatory diets for our patients.
