Raleigh, NC, December 27, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Erika Mangrum, president of Iatria Medspa, a new division of Iatria Spa and Health Center, has announced that the firm has added injectable medical treatments, including Botox®, Restylane® and Sculptra™, to their client services. Botox Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. Made from a purified protein, Botox injections block nerve impulses, weakening muscles to relax wrinkles and give the face a rejuvenated look. Restylane is a filler for correcting skin texture imperfections like acne scars, wrinkles, furrows, contour depressions and fine lines that works immediately and lasts long by providing volume and fullness to the skin. Sculptura is a safe, synthetic and biocompatible material that corrects the effects of fat loss by promoting production of the body's natural collagen in treated areas. Sculptra provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas long after the course of treatment.
“We are happy to offer these three injectable treatments,” said Mangrum. “Our medical doctor will be more than happy to help customers determine which of them works best for their individual needs.”
