Are you looking for a treatment or procedure to enhance the appearance of your skin that is affected by problems like wrinkles, acne scars, or sun damage? Do you prefer a type of treatment that does not involve incisions and has you back at work or everyday activities immediately after your fast procedure? If so, you owe it to yourself to visit our medical spa in Sudbury.
Benefits of Minimally-Invasive Treatments
Although cosmetic surgery still has its place, many of our patients in Sudbury are turning to minimally-invasive treatment options. Some of these treatments can even rival cosmetic surgery in their effects. They can also help to postpone surgery or extend the results of a previous surgery.
One of the main benefits of undergoing a minimally-invasive treatment like BOTOX® or facial fillers is their ability to offer real results with no need for surgery or set downtime. Most of our patients in Sudbury are able to return to work or normal activities immediately after their quick treatment.
Another advantage to minimally-invasive techniques is that they offer results that are usually quite soft and natural. This stands in stark contrast to some types of cosmetic surgery that some people feel leads to results that are too drastic or unnatural. Minimally-invasive procedures also tend to be faster and involve a lower risk of adverse events.
Are you a Sudbury resident who is bothered by wrinkles on your forehead, between your eyebrows, or crow’s feet? Known as dynamic wrinkles, these common signs of aging are formed by underlying facial muscles, and they can be easily treated with BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is a medical spa treatment involving a liquid that we inject into the face to temporarily relax facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles. The treatment acts as basically a nerve block to prevent the transmission of nerve impulses from the brain to the treated muscle. A muscle that does not receive a message to contract will remain smooth and free of dynamic wrinkles.
BOTOX® is a purified protein solution for use in settings like our medical spa. It has been developed under extremely strict and controlled conditions. The product has an excellent safety profile and has been used for decades.
Once you’ve undergone a BOTOX® medical spa treatment in Sudbury, it is understandable that you will be anticipating your results. Patients typically begin noticing the first effects in the days after their treatment, with maximum results evident within weeks. This delay is because of the time that the body needs to begin reacting to the presence of the BOTOX® solution. Those with especially strong facial muscles may need to wait longer to notice the effects. After you have already undergone multiple treatment sessions, you may notice that your results last longer.
When BOTOX® is used for cosmetic reasons, results typically last for months. You will likely want to schedule follow-up injections at our medical spa in Sudbury to maintain your results.
Facial fillers are extremely popular right now among people in Sudbury who are looking for minimally-invasive treatments that offer real results with no requirement for set downtime. These products consist of a liquid or gel that is injected into the face to promote enhanced facial volume as a method of removing lines and wrinkles. Some fillers can also enhance skin hydration for those who are suffering from both wrinkles and dry skin.
Although fillers offer surprisingly good results, these results are not permanent. Your body will continue aging normally, and the injected materials will be fully metabolized by your body in time. At that point, you may want to schedule follow-up injections at our medical spa to maintain your results.
Facial Fillers vs. BOTOX®
Some of our medical spa patients in Sudbury have been under the impression that facial fillers and BOTOX® are the same thing. Although they both have anti-aging applications and involve injections, that is where the similarity ends. BOTOX® contains a safe solution that, once injected, reduces the activity of treated facial muscles as a way of reducing some forms of wrinkles, while facial fillers work by enhancing facial skin volume, hydration, or both.
Aging skin usually has several culprits. One of them is the age-related loss of substances like hyaluronic acid and collagen that create structure and hydration for your skin. One of the main ways that facial fillers work is by replacing these important skin components to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. The good news is, if you are dealing with both dynamic wrinkles and a loss of facial volume and/or static wrinkles, you can combine facial fillers and BOTOX® for total facial rejuvenation.
Juvederm® is a type of facial filler containing hyaluronic acid. This important substance is produced naturally by your body. It has the unique ability to attract many times its own weight in water molecules. Skin with adequate hyaluronic acid tends to be thick and hydrated. Unfortunately, the aging process leads to a steady decline in hyaluronic acid production. This results in skin that becomes thinner and more prone to wrinkle development. Juvederm® helps to reverse this process.
Once injected into your face, Juvederm® will begin to immediately draw moisture into the treatment sites. It acts like a sponge within your skin to draw in moisture for a nice plumping and hydrating effect. It is almost like having an internal moisturizer that keeps your skin moist and supple. Unlike similar treatments, Juvederm® also contains lidocaine to ensure patient comfort during the treatment process.
Treatment with Radiesse® consists of injections at our medical spa in Sudbury with something called calcium hydroxylapatite, a type of mineral compound that occurs naturally in human cartilage and bones. Once Radiesse® is injected into the treatment sites, it rapidly begins replenishing lost facial volume while also stimulating the production of collagen for a lasting enhancement. The product can be injected in a way that ensures patient comfort during the injections.
Safety and Results
Our patients in Sudbury are gratified by how our filler treatments offer results that are immediately apparent. Depending on the filler used, you will see the improvements before you have left the medical spa.
A filler treatment may be what you are looking for if you need treatment for problems like hollow cheeks, volume loss in various areas, and nasolabial folds that run from the corners of the mouth to the nose.
One of the best things about these treatments is that they are entirely non-surgical in nature. They can be performed during a break from your other daily activities, and then you can get back to your life as if nothing happened. This simply isn’t the case with surgical options that require weeks of recovery and numerous downsides.
BOTOX® and facial filler treatments only scratch the surface when it comes to the services offered at our medical spa in Sudbury. We offer an array of PRP services that can be used for skin rejuvenation, a breast lift, sexual enhancement, and more. We also offer a variety of rejuvenation services like IV therapy, joint therapy, and hormone therapy, just to name a few. We even have customized medical weight loss programs available that aim to help you achieve your body goals.
All of our treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. The process is designed to be simple and easy, but it always starts with a consultation so that we can get to know you and learn about your cosmetic goals. From there, we can come up with a personalized treatment regimen for you.
