EXPERIENCE HOBOKEN’S 1ST BOTOX BAR™
By now men and women of all ages and backgrounds have heard of Botox, the miraculous injectable that erases frown lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet without surgery or downtime. Yet you may still be wondering if this cosmetic procedure is right for you. Have no fear, you have come to the right place. IV Elements certified nurses and injection specialists are here to answer all your questions and concerns!
WHAT IS BOTOX AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
While it may sound strange, Botox is made from Botulinium Toxin, an organism that causes botulism, or bacterial poisoning. Almost 20 years ago, doctors were able to isolate this toxin, then engineer and refine it into a medical treatment that has been revolutionary in the field of preventative aging.
FDA-approved and clinically tested, today Botox is one of the safest and most popular injectables in the world. It works by temporarily and partially paralyzing the facial muscles that cause glabellar folds (harsh vertical creases between the eyebrows), frown lines extending downwards from the nose, crow’s feet (unforgiving wrinkles around the eyes) and “worry lines,”—those horizontal zigzags across the forehead. The result is a smoother, more youthful facial appearance, regardless of facial expression. Additional uses for Botox include the treatment of hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating in the feet, hands or armpits.
Botox is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, so it does not require any kind of anesthesia. The typical client is in and out of the office within 10 minutes. The nurse practitioner will administer a carefully determined dose of Botox through a thin needle, zooming in on the delicate facial muscles that are responsible for causing uncomely wrinkles. Once the Botox has taken effect, the nerve impulses in these tiny muscles are blocked, eliminating their ability to continue wreaking havoc.
See immediate improvements in smile lines around the nose and lips, with visibly more volume and lift in the cheeks and neck areas and a more radiant, youthful rejuvenated appearance. Additional benefits include the following:
■ Smoother and tighter skin
■ Fuller and plumper lips
■ Volume and lift around the cheeks
■ Restoration of even the deepest lines and wrinkles

The VI Peel is not your average chemical peel — it has the ability to dramatically improve the texture of your skin regardless of your skin type. The peel tackles skin problems at the cellular level, rather than just burning the skin off as in a regular peel. It penetrates deep into the dermis of the skin, working to rejuvenate aging skin and help prevent future damage. The ingredients include TCA, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol and Vitamin C.
Each ingredient works synergistically with the others to address a wide variety of skin conditions while minimizing discomfort and downtime:
■ Fine lines and wrinkles
■ Age and sun spots
■ Acne and acne scarring
■ Enlarged pores
■ Overall skin health
This simple and painless chemical peel takes only five minutes and will help keep your skin gorgeous, glowing and healthy!
Fillers are made up of natural acids, synthetic acids, and calcium. These injectables help to fill hollows, smooth wrinkles and fine lines, and plump areas such as the lips. Adding volume lessens the signs of aging.
Getting fillers is super simple. They are injected into the targeted area beneath the skin using a small needle. You may experience some swelling or minor bruising, but it will fade within a few days.
Fillers can last from 6 months to several years and you will see an immediate youthful fullness in area injected!
