This temporary relaxation, 3 to 6 months, occurs because of the inhibition of the electrical impulses between the nerve and the muscle. Areas improved include frown lines, forehead, smokers lips, marionette lines, crows feet, jawline, platysmal banding, among others. It is also used to treat migraines, excessive sweating, and some neurological problems.

This 100% natural rejuvenation technique is very popular because it presents no possibility of allergy or rejection from the body. An excellent option for the nasolabial folds, cheeks, and hands.

These proteins, activated by platelets and growth factors firm and revitalize the skin.

When you’re walking through the rainforest and surprise an animal that goes bouncing through the undergrowth emitting panicked, bark-like grunts with every bounce, you’ve certainly startled a Central American Agouti (Dasysyprocta punctata). After 20 years of living here, I finally saw one standing still. Once the hunting was under control on Hacienda Barú National Wildlife Refuge, their fear of humans diminished considerably.
It is not unusual for residents on the South Pacific side of Costa Rica to witness humpback whales swimming along the coast with their newborn calves during migratory whale seasons. For anyone, being able to rescue a female whale and her calf’s life is a once in a lifetime encounter. Innoceana, in association with filmmakers The Vegan Pirates, produced a short documentary “Entangled in Costa Rica.”
It leads to a lifestyle based on sustainability and compassion.
The three pillars of veganism are:
1. Compassion for all animals (i.e. an understanding that there is no difference between a chicken or a dog, a calf, or a cat).
2. The concern and care for environmental issues (i.e. massive land use and pollution caused by life stock farming, pesticides, antibiotics, etc.); and
3. The positive effects on health (i.e., low cholesterol, no lactose intolerance, a pure conscience, etc.).
