Injectable and Liquid Facelifts
At Utopia MedSpa, we offer FDA approved, non-surgical facial rejuvenation injectable treatments, including Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport, and Dermal Fillers.
Kybella Injections to Dissolve Fat
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine (deoxycholic acid) used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” Treatments with Kybella involve a single session or a series of sessions of injections that target and destroy fat cells permanently. Submental fat is a genetic type of fat that typically doesn’t necessarily improve with weight loss, so many men and women are enjoying their new and improved chin and neck profile that they may not have been able to achieve without Kybella. Side effects include bruising and swelling. It is important to see a good provider offering brand-name Kybella to ensure a safe and effective result. Schedule a consultation with our Nurse Practitioner today to see if you are a candidate for this procedure.
Botox and Dysport
Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are both examples of neurotoxins used to treat wrinkles and lines caused by movement of facial muscles. Both products involve a quick and minimally invasive office visit with results that last approximately 3-4 months. Used by both men and women of all skin types, patients who use Botox or Dysport generally have a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
Our Aesthetic Nurse specializes in providing a custom plan for your unique skin needs. Examples of areas treated with Botox and/or Dysport at our location include frown lines in between the eyes, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet wrinkles, upper lip wrinkles, strong masseter muscles, platysmal (neck) bands, and depressor muscles pulling down at the corners of the mouth. Schedule a consultation to get a good idea of how many units you need to address your facial concerns.
Dermal Fillers are injectable products made of hyaluronic acid that are used to replace volume loss in the face or to fill in deep wrinkles or gaps. Unlike Botox and Dysport, which relax facial muscles, fillers will replace the volume under the wrinkle and plump the skin to appear more youthful and smooth. Dermal fillers can be used in areas like the lips, temples, chin and cheeks for correction or augmentation, as well as in the smile lines and corners of the mouth for fold/ deep wrinkle correction. Swelling and bruising for several days are common side effects, so speak with our Aesthetic Nurse ahead of time to learn tips on how to avoid bruising. Most fillers last 6-18 months, depending on the area that is being treated.
Sculptra Aesthetic Injections
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable Poly-L lactic acid that stimulates your body to produce collagen, thickening the dermis and subtly volumizing areas of volume loss. Sculptra injections are very subtle and natural, so it takes about 4-6 weeks to see the results after each injection. Some people see improvement after one session, whereas others need several sessions to achieve optimal correction. Sculptra is also used in combination with dermal fillers, neurotoxins, and lasers to assist in Liquid Facelifts. Because the subtle nature of the product, Sculptra has become a favorite in patients wishing for a natural anti-aging experience. Also, men and women who are extremely physically fit will use Sculptra to naturally enhance unwanted fat loss in the lower cheek area. Bruising and swelling are common side effects of a treatment with Sculptra Aesthetic. Schedule your consultation today to see if you are a good candidate for this procedure!
Sclerotherapy (Spider Vein Treatment)
Sclerotherapy involves injecting small, visible purple or red “spider veins” on the legs with a saline mixture. This process breaks down the lining of the vein, eventually collapsing the vein and reducing the appearance of the vein. This procedure is used only for the small spider veins, and is not recommended for the larger blue or budging, painful varicose veins. Bruising is likely after each procedure, and compression hose are recommended for several weeks after each session. Patients see results after one session, but may need a series of sclerotherapy sessions to see optimal results. Schedule a consultation to see if you are a candidate for sclerotherapy!
