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!

Utopia’s Unique Procedure Bundles
Gen-Pen Only at Utopia! Gen-Pen is Utopia’s signature combination treatment that starts with a session of Laser Genesis and is immediately followed by microneedling at a 2mm+ depth. This treatment can be done on the face, neck/chest, arms, or hands to improve skin texture. Helpful in addressing fine lines, enlarged pores, acne scars, and crepe skin. The Gen-Pen can be done as a single session to stimulate collagen production, or in a series to correct more involved texture concerns. Dry skin and redness are common side effects, but you can wear makeup the day after your procedure in order to cover it up. Speak with our Aesthetic Nurse today to discuss how this treatment can benefit your skin!
DermaPeel Utopia’s DermaPeel is a quick dermaplaning procedure to exfoliate the first layer of dead skn, immediately followed by a chemical peel. DermaPeel was designed to improve texture concerns and stimulate skin cell turnover for patients with limited time. You can choose to have a mild chemical peel or a moderate chemical peel for a custom result.
Genesis Facial Only at Utopia! Genesis Facial is Utopia’s signature facial that combines one collagen stimulating session of Laser Genesis with a custom facial by one of our medical aestheticians. Combining anti-aging with skin maintenance, this custom facial is a patient favorite!
Vit-A-Peel Vit-A-Peel is a quick, moderate peel that is easy to add on to almost any Utopia Treatment! With one quick, painless application, you receive a peel that your wear home for about 6-8 hours before washing it off. The peel has a slightly yellow tinge, but is not overly noticeable for running errands while the peel is in place. Be sure to do your workout before having this peel, and expect to begin peeling the next day. Peeling and dry skin persists for 3-5 days, but makeup can be worn during this time.
VI Peel with Precision Plus Utopia is pleased to announce that we now offer VI Peel with Precision Plus, a specialized peel that targets persistent hyperpigmentation that does not respond well to other treatments. This peel is a wear home peel that has to be washed off after 4 hours. It does not hurt, but patients will experience moderate to severe peeling for a week. A custom brightening cream can be used with this peel to further improve results for extremely resistant hyperpigmentation.
Microneedling Microneedling at Utopia is not your standard procedure. Using a top-of-the-line microneedling device, this procedure creates small micro-channels in the skin. These channels, or injuries, to the skin stimulate the skin to heal itself from the inside-out by creating collagen and thickening the dermis. Specific products like Vitamins, Growth Factors, or PRP (platelet rich plasma) is “penned” or penetrated into the skin and then topically applied into the micro-channels to further stimulate skin cell production. Mild bruising and swelling plus redness and dryness are typical side effects that can be camouflaged with makeup on the day after the procedure. The skin stays dry for up to a week, and final results of the collagen stimulation are seen 3-4 weeks after the treatment. Microneedling can be done as a single session or in a series, depending on the severity of the texture concerns of the patient.

Laser Genesis Skin Therapy The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-ablative fractional (non-invasive) laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars. The Genesis is effective at stimulating collagen, thickening the dermis and improving overall skin texture. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without downtime. Makeup can be worn the same day since there is no peeling or open wounds after the Genesis. Treatment is described as relaxing and therapeutic and many fall asleep during procedure! Add Genesis on to any of our other procedures to improve your results!
Limelight Photo Facial Similar to other IPL procedures, this procedure focuses on correcting discoloration in the skin. Targeting red and brown discoloration, this treatment is better for patients with skin types I-III. Post-procedure, your brown discoloration will get darker brown initially, and then fade over the period of 5-7 days. Superficial visible red veins, capillaries and rosacea can also be treated with this procedure. All patients will feel like they have a sunburn after receiving a limelight Photo Facial, but hydrating products and makeup can be worn immediately after the treatment. No peeling is expected with a Limelight, making this treatment a favorite among patients looking for procedures with little to no downtime.
