These are all FDA approved wrinkle-relaxing injections (Neurotoxins). They all act at the level of the muscle cell to relax muscles. This treatment prevents the formation of wrinkles and smooths out existing wrinkles thereby restoring a youthful appearance to your skin.
This class of treatments can essentially be used on any muscle that needs to be relaxed to have a therapeutic effect.
Common aesthetic uses are:
At LA Wellness Boutique we strive to produce natural looking results which still maintains movement and expressions in the face. Depending on your preference, we can tailor to your needs.
On average 30 minutes. The exact duration would depend on the size of the areas being treated and if you desire using numbing creams prior to the treatment.
The injections are generally very well tolerated but we do give you the option of using medical grade numbing creams prior to receiving the treatments for added comfort.
It depends on the product that is used, but the full effect is seen by 2 weeks.
Results will be seen after one treatment but you may need a touch up appointment 2 weeks later to get the desired effects. Touch up treatments are not included as part of the initial treatment. The amount of product needed will depend on the area being treated.
Again this depends on the product used but it also depends on many personal factors like the rate of your metabolism, your hormone levels, how physically active you are and if you have had multiple prior such treatments. Generally the effects last 3-5 months.
As we age, we lose skin elasticity and have shrinkage, as well as downward displacement, of our facial fat pads, which were responsible for the youthful facial structure we once knew. This progressively results in sagging of our facial structures, change in the correct proportions of our facial anatomy and deep wrinkles and skin folds. The next thing we know, we have lost our prominent cheekbones and have developed a new structure, the dreaded jowel.
Dermal fillers are a jelly like substance, similar to human hyaluronic acid, that help to restore volume that is lost with aging, reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and folds, define certain areas of the face/body and rejuvenate your skin.
Like the neuromodulators, there are many types of dermal fillers, each with its own properties, which helps determine which is the correct filler for the area being treated. For example, for lip augmentation it is best to use a smoother and more hydrating product than a filler used to rebuild facial structures which need to be more firm and less malleable.
Commonly used hyaluronic acid fillers include Restylane, Belotero, Versa, Juvedern and Volume. Radiesse and Sculptra are non-hyaluronic acid fillers and should actually be in a class of their own as these products not only restore volume and augment areas that need it, they also stimulate the body to make its own collagen (which is the skins scaffolding) and therefore their effects are much longer than hyaluronic acid fillers.
On average 60 minutes but this will depend on the number of areas being treated and an additional 30 minutes is recommended for numbing prior to the procedure.
We recommend the use of a numbing cream applied 30-45 minutes before the procedure to minimize pain. Most fillers that we use also have premixed lidocaine to give additional comfort. Since dermal fillers are thicker in consistency they do cause a temporary stretching sensation to the skin.
The effect of filler is immediate with full effect seen in 7 days.
Most patients are able to return to their normal activities the same day. For those prone to bruising and swelling, these should settle in 24-48 hours.
Usually one treatment unless we decide to build up slowly. The amount of product that will be needed will depend on the area being treated and the effect you would like to achieve.
Depending on the type of product used 6-12 months. Longer for the non-hyaluronic acid fillers (Radiesse and Sculptra). Many personal factors may also play a role in how long fillers last, like the rate of your metabolism, your hormone levels, how physically active you are and if you have had multiple prior such treatments.
These treatments use a device that delivers a mixture of nutrients (vitamins) and treatments (botox, hyaluronic acid, skin lighteners, platelet rich plasma (PRP) or other growth factors) through micro channels in the surface of the skin created by tiny needles. This allows for products to penetrate the surface of the skin where they can have a more potent effect in boosting collagen in the face, neck and décolletage. It is a form of superficial micro-needling but with many added benefits. The products used in the mixture are custom picked to fit each individuals needs and skin type.
On average 30 minutes for the procedure and an additional 30 minutes is recommended for numbing prior to the procedure.
The treatment is essentially pain free and generally very well tolerated, with minimum bleeding.
It takes between 3 to 7 days to see the full effects.
Single treatments spread out 4-6 months apart depending on your needs.
Kybella is a non-invasive injectable treatment that uses a naturally occurring chemical called deoxycholic acid, to painlessly destroy fat cells permanently Most commonly used to treat a double chin, the treatment permanently removes fat from this area creating a more slender and youthful neck and face. This treatment works best for patients that are already at a healthy weight but who are struggling to loose fat in specific small areas as an alternative to liposuction.
- double chin treatment is the only on-label use for Kybella
- some off-label uses of Kybella to remove stubborn fat include:
Each session takes about 30 minutes but it also depends on the exact area that is being treated.
Pain from the injection and a temporary burning sensation are typical. We do recommend the use of a numbing cream applied 45 minutes before the procedure to minimize pain.
Initial results take 3-4 weeks to be seen but the full benefits can take 2-3 months to appear.
Swelling of the treatment area occurs secondary to an inflammatory response to the destruction of fat cells. This swelling usually lasts less than a week. Depending on the area being treated, patients can generally resume normal activities the day after the procedure.
A Kybella treatment involves several injection sessions (usually 2-6, depending on the patient’s needs) that are spaced four to eight weeks apart.
In patients that maintain a stable weight, the improvements are considered permanent as the fat will not return once dissolved. With weight gain there is a small possibility that fat cells will again accumulate.
Skin tightening procedures, like Morpheus8 and Forma treatments, often further improve the results obtained by Kybella treatments.
A microneedling device that targets deeper layers than traditional microneedling devices and utilizes simultaneous radiofrequency energy to remodel the fat layer under the skin and stimulate the production of collagen resulting in reshaping and contouring of any area of the face and body.
Morpheus8 also has a skin resurfacing function, by use of more superficial microneedling, to improve the texture of the skin resulting in smoother, tighter skin with improvement of superficial scars and pore size.
A great advantage of this treatment is that it can be used in all skin types as it is not using laser. These deep and superficial treatments in combination are in essence a nonsurgical option to skin rejuvenation and when used in combination with PRP, optimal results are achieved.
On average 30 minutes but this will depend on the size and the number of areas being treated and an additional 45 minutes is recommended for numbing prior to the procedure.
As the procedure reaches deeper layers to allow for fat remodeling, we do recommend the use of a numbing cream applied 45 minutes before the procedure to minimize pain.
Visible results can be seen within a few days and they keep improving for the next three months after treatment.
Generally 2 days.
Typically 1-3 sessions depending on the area being treated and the severity of the problem. These are done 4-6 weeks apart.
The finals results will last for years but as many other treatments, will depend on multiple individual factors.
Depending on the goal being reached, multiple different treatments may be combined with Morpheus8. For example, for melasma and acne scarring, Morpheus8 treatments are often done in conjunctions with chemical peels.
Forma is a skin and tissue remodeling technology that uses subdermal heating and radiofrequency to stimulate the formation of new collagen which will improve the skins elasticity and texture. It can be used on all skin types to give a lifting effect to the face and neck areas.
Forma can be used on multiple areas of the body and face. Depending on the treatment area, sessions can take anywhere from 30 - 60 minutes.
Forma is an essentially painless procedure. You may feel warmth on your skin which is usually very tolerable and often enjoyable.
There will be some immediate visual results and often this treatment is done the day before a big event to give an extra glow and plumping to the skin. But for more long-lasting effects, it depends on the area treated and the amount of sagging or deeper wrinkle to be treated, and therefore it may take several treatments to reach your desired goal.
There is no downtime. Right after the treatment, the skin may be slightly flushed in the treated area that goes away within a few hours, and you can return to your everyday activities immediately after the session.
The number of treatments typically needed is 6-8 sessions, once weekly, but may vary depending on the individual. Individuals with thicker skin may require more sessions. Megasessions are longer treatment sessions which may help reduce the total number of sessions needed.
There will be some immediate visual results but depending on the area treated and the amount of sagging or deeper wrinkle to be treated, it may take several treatments to reach your desired goal.
The flushed appearance caused by the treatment will last a few hours. Moisturizer and/or makeup may be applied immediately after each treatment.
Forma can be used in combination with most other laser treatments, facials, injectables and/or filler. Please speak to our office when considering combining Forma with other treatments.
Chemical peels are acids of different strengths, used either alone or in combination, to improve the appearance of skin most commonly in the region of the face, neck and hands. The acid breaks down the tops layers of skin to expose smoother and brighter skin from below resulting in a luminous glow to the skin. Chemical peels that are acquired by a licensed physician from a compounding pharmacy are of medical grade and have more satisfactory results than widely available peels.
On average the session takes 30-45 minutes.
If you’ve never experienced a chemical peel, you might be worried about the pain factor. But actually, chemical peels are painless. During the procedure, you might experience some mild tingling, but many of our guests describe it as a refreshing, invigorating feeling – definitely not painful. As your skin peels over the next several days, the shedding doesn’t hurt either.
It depends on the type of chemical peels used, but for the deeper peels there is often a noticable change after the first peel in 7-10 days.
Downtime varies depending on the type and strength of the chemical peel. Peeling generally starts 48-72 hours after the treatment is applied and lasts 5 days. The healing process may involve skin redness, swelling, crusting, dryness, stinging and sensitivity.
Typically, we’ll recommend that you start with a series of three chemical peels spaced about four weeks apart, but individuals are unique and so is their skin. The type, strength and number of chemical peels needed to achieve the desired goal will be different for everyone. A personalized treatment plan will be made once your needs are assessed.
Again, generally speaking, it is recommended that treatments be repeated every 3 to 4 weeks for a total of 3 treatments. After that, a maintenance peel plan will be recommended to maintain the beneficial effects. With the judicious use of sunscreen, the effects of chemical peels will last longer.
Depending on the goal being reached, multiple different treatments may be combined with chemical peels. For example, for melasma and acne scarring, chemical peels are often done in conjunctions with microneedling with radio frequency (Morphues8).
Lumecca by Inmode is a breakthrough intense pulsed light (IPL) technology that delivers strong light energy targeting a wide range of skin concerns, including vascular and pigmented lesions (red and brown skin spots), within fewer treatment sessions.
Lumecca IPL directly treats and removes the symptoms of aging such as sun damage, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration. It be used on all areas of the body. The most commonly treated areas are those regularly exposed to the sun such as the face, décolletage, hands, neck, legs and arms.
This will depend on the size of the area being treated, but typically a session can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes.
The treatment produces a sensation similar to that of a light rubber band snap. Most patients find the treatment to be quite tolerable.
Most patients will experience an initial reddening of the treated skin followed by a darkening of pigmented spots within 24 to 48 hours of their treatment. These dark spots will then flake off throughout the following week. Brighter, clearer, and smoother skin should appear within 7 days after treatment with the most noticeable results being seen about two weeks later.
There is typically little to no downtime with our Lumecca treatment. There may be some mild redness and swelling for 1-2 days after treatment, but since the skin surface is not broken, makeup may be applied within 24 hours of the treatment.
The number of treatments typically varies from 2-5 sessions every 3-4 weeks. This will depend on your skin type and on the severity of the skin problem. Pigmented lesions usually require less sessions than vascular lesions.
With the use of recommended medical grade skin care products, daily sunscreen (at least SPF 30) and simple maintenance treatments, the results can last for years.
Often done in conjunction with microneedling with RF (Morpheus8) and/or chemical peels to attempt to treat the root cause of the problem from multiple angles.
Vasculaze is a laser treatment with a specially designed head to pinpoint the vein or vein network, making treatments precise and safe. The technology in the Vasculaze sends pulses of light onto the vein, which makes the vein slowly fade and disappear, preventing the need for unpleasant incisions and needles. It can treat a variety of vascular lesions involving any part of the body, but most commonly facial and leg veins. Varicose veins are larger veins that cannot be effectively treated by laser procedures and often require surgical intervention if indicated.
Vasculaze is a relatively quick procedure with most treatment sessions lasting 15-20 minutes, but this will ultimately depend on how extensive the vein or vein network is.
Using the Vasculaze system incorporates a built in cooling device that eliminates most of the pain associated with laser vein treatment and most patients report the sensation of a light rubber band snap.
Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen even after the first treatment.
Typically 1-4 sessions are needed depending on the severity and extent of the vein problem. These treatments are done 4-8 weeks apart.
The goal of these treatments is to produce longterm results but occasionally touch up sessions my be required.
A hair removal solution offering peak power with optimal speed. Designed with state-of-the-art diode lasers, the DiolazeXL by Inmode offers patients the most effective hair removal treatment by reaching the root of the hair follicle. DiolazeXL has built-in safeguards to ensure that all sessions are comfortable and relatively pain-free. DiolazeXL targets darker pigmented and course stubborn hair, up to skin type VI.
Our laser hair removal technology can be safely used on most areas of the body that have unwanted hair. Most commonly treated areas include: underarms, bikini, legs, arms, chest, back, shoulders, stomach, neck, chin and sideburns.
Virtually anywhere on the body can be treated. The thicker and darker the hair, the more effective the treatments will be. The only exceptions are inside the nose and ears and immediately around the eyes.
Laser hair removal is not the recommended treatment for facial “peach fuzz”.
Areas with tattoos or permanent make-up are not treated with laser hair removal.
Our hair removal technology covers a large treatment area, making treatments convenient and fast. The exact duration would depend on the size of the areas being treated and if you desire using numbing creams prior to the treatment.
Virtually painless due to strong built-in cooling mechanism. We do give you the option of using medical grade numbing creams prior to receiving the treatments for added comfort.
It depends on the type of hair, but improvements in the treatment area can be seen even after the first treatment.
To ensure the treatment of the hair in its active growth cycle, 3-8 treatment sessions may be recommended depending on your skin and hair type and the area being treated. These sessions are typically done 6-8 weeks apart.
The hair reduction effects are permanent, but depending on multiple individual factors, some may require a single maintenance treatment every 6 – 9 months after completing their initial series.
