It's only natural to want to look your best, but sometimes that requires a little help. Age, sun damage, medical conditions, and weight fluctuations can all lead to physical imperfections that are hard to remedy on your own.

However, that doesn't mean you have to live with deep wrinkles, sagging skin, or pigmentation irregularities. At Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, we offer laser treatments that can improve a number of skin issues so you look and feel your best.

Here is what the laser treatments from our Dayton office can do for you:

MicroLaserPeel:

This laser treatment removes a thin layer of the surface skin to diminish the appearance of scars, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, age spots, or keratosis. This treatment can be used on hands, face, neck, or chest areas.

Skin Tightening:

We use ThermiSmooth to firm loose skin on the face and body. If you are bothered by cellulite on your thighs or abdomen, this laser treatment can help reduce the dimpling and creasing so that your skin looks tauter and more even. For creases and wrinkles on the face and around the eyes, we can use laser treatment to smooth out the skin surface, leaving you looking youthful and rejuvenated.

Laser Hair Removal:

If you are tired of spending time shaving or have stubborn, coarse hairs on your face or body, laser hair removal treatment from our Dayton office can offer you smooth skin in as little as four treatment sessions. Using heat to damage the hair follicle inhibits the regrowth of hair, giving you lasting results. This precise, quick process means that you can put your razor and waxes away. No more worrying about cuts, irritation, or pain from at-home hair removal procedures!

How Botox Can Help You

We've all seen the photos of celebrities in their 40's, 50's and beyond who appear seemingly ageless, with glowing skin, bright eyes and crease free foreheads. For many, the secret to a youthful visage is Botox. The good news is the injectable treatment isn't just available to the rich and famous -- you can freshen up your face and erase your creases right here in Centerville and Dayton at Spa Medicca. Let us help you look natural yet fresh faced with Botox.

What can botox do for me?

Everyone has creases and wrinkles in their faces which are particularly apparent when we smile, frown, raise our eyebrows or squint our eyes. These lines are natural, but as we age and our skin loses elasticity they can deepen and make us appear aged.

Botox uses a chemical called acetylcholine which prevents wrinkle-inducing muscle contractions so your fine lines and wrinkles appear less obvious. Targeted Botox injections can help alleviate the laugh lines which extend from your nose to mouth, the creases between your eyebrows, the worry lines on your forehead and the crow's feet at the outer corner of your eyes. Don't worry about looking frozen-faced or unnatural -- the specialists at our Centerville office, serving Dayton, are skilled at administering the right dose of Botox so you look naturally great.

How is Botox administered?

Botox injections can be done in just minutes at our Centerville, OH, office that also serves Dayton, OH, and require no anesthesia. Your specialist will use a syringe with a small needle and pain should be minimal. You will likely see results in a few days, and can expect the Botox treatment to last up to six months. While Botox may decrease the depth of your creases beyond that time, the injections are not permanent and you will need follow up doses to maintain your results.

If you are yearning to look youthful, well rested, and incredible, call Spa Medicca in Centerville, OH, also serving Dayton, OH, at (937) 312-9212 for a consultation on Botox.

Get all the hairy details about laser hair removal treatment.

Noticing that the peach fuzz on your face is a little darker than you would like? Hate having to shave, pluck, tweeze, and wax regularly? If so, laser hair removal may be perfect for you! Read on to learn about the benefits of this treatment from Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH.

How does laser hair removal work?

During your treatment, we will glide a handheld laser over the area or areas you wish to treat. The light from the laser detects the hair’s pigment, which the light then heats up. This heat then damages the follicle and hair bulb to prevent the hair from growing back. The length of treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area, as the face may only take 10 minutes to complete while the back could take up to one hour.

What areas can I treat with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can be used just about anywhere that hair grows (pretty convenient, right?). The most popular treatment areas include,

  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Bikini line
  • Legs
  • Armpits
  • Back

When will I see results?

Since hair grows cyclically, this means that one session won’t be enough to remove all the hair. You will need anywhere from 6-12 sessions to see the full results, and you’ll begin to see a difference in about two to three weeks.

Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Most people dealing with unwanted hair can benefit from undergoing laser hair removal. Most laser treatments today are safe and effective for all skin tones and hair types (the hair just needs to be dark enough for the laser to pick up its pigment). A simple consultation with our Dayton, OH, cosmetic doctor will be able to determine whether you are right for laser hair removal.

It resurfaces, tightens, and rejuvenizes your skin to help you look and feel younger.

Laser treatment effectively counteracts the breakdown by stimulating the growth of collagen from cells called fibroblasts. Results can be seen immediately after treatment and will continue to improve over time.

3. It minimizes large pores. Some of the causes of large pores include genetics, tobacco use, oily skin, and sun damage. Having enlarged pores can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable, especially in social situations. Halo laser treatment is an effective option that will diminish your pore size while also improving the overall appearance of your skin.

4. It improves acne scars. Halo laser treatment can improve the appearance of acne scarring. Halo laser treatment works best for patients under 50 with mild to moderate acne scarring. You may need multiple treatments to see improvement in your skin. It is typical for a patient to need anywhere from 2 to 4 treatments for optimal results.

5. It's a non-invasive treatment. Halo laser treatment is non-invasive, meaning it can be done on your lunch break and downtime is non-existent or minimal. Halo laser treatment is an optimal procedure for those who are seeking quick results and don't want to deal with a lot of downtime.
