Find out what Botox could do to help you look younger.

Are you noticing that those lines between your eyebrows are getting deeper? Want to smooth away those lines and wrinkles before they become more visible? If so, Botox may be the simplest and easiest way for our Dayton, OH, doctor Dr. Christopher Sesslar to target those early signs of aging.

What is Botox?

Botox is a simple cosmetic procedure that injects a purified form of botulinum toxin into the muscles of the face to prevent them from contracting. Once Botox has been injected into the muscles, it stops the signals from the nerves to the muscles that tell the muscles to contract. Since the muscles cannot contract, it helps to smooth away certain lines and wrinkles.

What can Botox do for my appearance?

Botox can be an excellent solution for anyone looking to take years off their appearance without the need for invasive measures. Our skin doctor understands that not everyone is ready to take the plunge into getting cosmetic surgery; however, by choosing non-invasive measures like Botox, we can easily give you excellent results without downtime. So, what wrinkles can our Dayton, OH, team treat with Botox?

Botox works by reducing the appearance and sometimes even eliminating dynamic lines and wrinkles. These lines are the ones that appear when you make facial expressions like smiling, frowning or squinting. If you have crow’s feet, lines on your forehead, or around the nose or mouth, then Botox may be able to help you.

What is involved in getting Botox?

This fairly simple procedure only takes a few minutes to complete. It’s so fast that people often choose to get it done during their lunch break. Plus, there is no recovery time with this procedure. You can immediately go back to your daily routine after getting Botox.

The needles used are very thin, so you won’t feel anything more than a slight pinch when the needle enters the skin.

When will I see results? How long do results last?

It will take a couple of days for you to see the full results of your treatment. Also, results are only temporary, lasting for about six months. Luckily, if you are happy with your results, you can continue to get Botox treatments to refresh your look.

Are you interested in what Botox could offer your appearance? If so, turn to our trusted Dayton, OH, cosmetic team at Spa Medicca. Call us at (937) 312-9212 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sesslar.

If you’re interested in facials in Centerville or Dayton, Ohio, Dr. Christopher Sesslar of Spa Medicca can provide the best option for your needs.

How to Choose the Right Facial

Choosing the right facial revolves around picking one that is best for your skin type. The following are the five different skin types and the best type of facial for each type:

Normal

Normal skin means that the pores are of normal size and the skin isn’t dry or oily. If you have normal skin, simply washing your face keeps it looking fresh and youthful. The good news is that if you have normal skin, your options for facials are pretty much wide open.

Dry

Dry skin is usually made up of small pores, and it often feels tight. Many people with dry skin have issues with peeling and cracking. Washing dry skin typically makes it feel even tighter and, usually, uncomfortable.

The dryness is due to dehydration. As dehydration hampers the body’s ability to naturally exfoliate, dead skin cells tend to stay put and impact the skin’s appearance. A gentle exfoliation facial that includes moisturizing is best for dry skin.

Oily

Oily skin is quite the opposite. It, of course, leads to an oily face. It’s accompanied by large pores, which clog easily, leading to blackheads and acne. Regular face washing gets rid of the oil for a moment, but the oil quickly comes back.

If you have oily skin, you need a facial that helps deep clean the pores. These will typically include glycolic or salicylic acid.

Combination

Some people have skin that has dry patches and oily areas. Often, they have small pores on most of their face and large pores around the nose.

Combination skin requires a comprehensive facial which will address both the oily and dry areas of the face. If you live in Centerville or Dayton, Ohio, and are looking for facials, Dr. Sesslar at Spa Medicca can ensure you get the best facial for your combination skin.

Sensitive

If you have sensitive skin, you are likely to deal with a great deal of irritation, stinging, and red spots. It might be due to a skin condition or environmental factors. In either case, washing it usually brings no relief but amplifies the irritation.

To prevent further irritation, people with sensitive skin require a gentle facial that is free from harsh chemicals and fragrances. It will need to include only mild cleansers and enzymes.

There are many types of Juvederm and, they vary in their function. It is injected on the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin supple. When we age, its production decreases, leading to loose skin and wrinkles. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that can smoothen lines, give fuller lips and plump skin.

Doctor massages the injected area to distribute the filler evenly. The results of Juvederm treatment in Dayton, OH, are immediate. The duration of the procedure is around 15 minutes. The number of injections required depends on the patient's needs. Juvederm can also give fuller lips and cheeks by increasing tissue volume.
