Dietary supplements are any products that you consume to improve your health or wellbeing. Vitamins, minerals, and herbs are all examples of supplements. The most usual variety is a pill or capsule. You can also buy them in powder, drinks, and meals. They aren’t intended to cure or treat any ailments or health conditions. An exception would be if the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the product for a health claim.
Path to improved health
Minerals and vitamins are known to as micronutrients. You get vitamins and minerals by eating a healthy range of foods on a daily basis, which help to nourish your body and keep you healthy. This ensures that the nutrients in these items are absorbed effectively by your body.
You should attempt to eat a range of healthy foods, such as vegetables, fruits, fish and lean meats. If you don’t eat proper foods you may not get all of the micronutrients your body requires. Taking multivitamins can help, but there is no evidence that they help you avoid heart disease or cancer.
People who may benefit from supplements include:
Botox is a neurotoxin that works on your facial muscles. This injectable contains an ingredient, botulinum toxin A, that temporarily limits facial muscle movement to smooth lines and wrinkles. Botox also stops you from reforming those lines and wrinkles for several months or longer.
Your Prestige Physicians provider injects Botox into the muscles that cause wrinkles using an insulin-size syringe, making the treatments virtually painless.
Prestige Physicians also offers Xeomin®, an injectable that works by relaxing facial muscle movement. Although Botox and Xeomin are both botulinum toxin A injectables, Xeomin is a “naked” injectable that doesn’t contain any supporting proteins like Botox does.
Some patients develop a resistance to Botox after using it for a long period of time, and this resistance is actually tied to the supporting proteins rather than the botulinum toxin A itself. In those situations, patients can often start using Xeomin for wrinkle reduction instead.
Botox generally lasts up to four months, and Xeomin can last up to three months. But, every patient responds to injectables differently, so your Botox or Xeomin could last longer.
After Botox or Xeomin injections, you can get back to your normal day right away. Your Prestige Physicians provider gives you a short list of precautions, such as not lying down for several hours and staying out of the sun for the rest of the day.
If you have some slight redness or pinpricks at the injection site, you can gently pat makeup on your skin to cover it up if you like. But, avoid rubbing or tugging at your skin after your Botox or Xeomin injections.
If lines and wrinkles make you look older than you feel, Botox or Xeomin injectables could be just what you need. Call the Prestige Physicians office, or use the online scheduler to book your injectables consultation now.
