Wrinkles, prominent fold lines, and sagging skin can all decrease your confidence and make you look older than you feel. Juvederm injections offered by Dr. Christopher Sesslar of Spa Medicca, your Dayton, OH, medspa, can help you rejuvenate your appearance.

 

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler that plumps up your skin, minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by your body. Juvederm addresses the natural loss of volume that occurs as you age. As your face loses volume, you may notice sagging and more prominent lines and folds.

 

How Can Juvederm help me?

Your Dayton doctor may offer several types of Juvederm, each designed to address distinct problem areas. Depending on the type, results may last one to two years. Injections at contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to ensure that your treatments at our medspa are pain-free.

The injections can be used to:

  • Address Loss of Volume in Your Cheeks: Adding Juvederm to your cheeks lifts them, thereby reducing sagging and the wrinkles that can occur as a result of sagging.
  • Soften Nasolabial Fold Lines: Nasolabial fold lines that extend from your nose and mouth tend to become more noticeable the older you get. Luckily, Juvederm offers a simple way to make the lines much less prominent.
  • Improve the Appearance of the Undereye Area: Loss of volume also affects the tear troughs (aka the undereye area). As volume decreases the area begins to look wrinkled and sunken. In response, Juvederm not only plumps your tear troughs but also smooths the wrinkled skin.
  • Minimize Scars: Scars can be the unpleasant results of acne, and they remain for years after you last had a breakout. However, thanks to Juvederm, it's easy to plump up depressed scar tissue. Juvederm is effective for shallow scars but may not be the best treatment for deeper ones.
  • Erase Creases: Your doctor can also use Juvederm to fill creases between your eyes and around your nose.
  • Increase Lip Size: Thinning lips are an unfortunate consequence of aging. Juvederm restores the natural volume of your lips, helping you look younger.

Has your skin lost its usual glow? A facial can alleviate dullness and improve the texture and condition of your skin. Centerville, OH's Spa Medicca, headed by Dr. Christopher Sesslar, offers a variety of facials that will help repair and restore your skin.

How can facials improve my skin?

Cleansing is an important part of your facial, but the treatment involves much more than simply washing your face. Before your treatment begins, the esthetician will evaluate your skin and create a treatment that addresses your specific concerns. The first step in the facial process is Exfoliation, a treatment that gently sloughs away dead skin cells that dull your complexion, The treatment unclogs blocked pores, makes wrinkles a little less noticeable, reduces the size of large pores and prepares your skin to absorb serums and moisturizers.

After exfoliating your skin, your esthetician will use a special tool to remove whiteheads and blackheads, if necessary. Next comes the massage, one of the aspects of facials that Centerville clients particularly enjoy. The massage improves lymph drainage, increases blood circulation, reduces puffiness, increases collagen production, improves skin elasticity, and helps relax your facial muscles.

Your treatment will conclude with the application of masks, moisturizers, serums, and other products. These products add moisture to your skin, which minimizes the appearance of fine lines and makes your skin feel smooth and soft.

What types of facials are best?

Your esthetician may recommend one or more of these popular facial treatments:

  • Youth Facial: The facial is designed to restore collagen and elastin, tone facial muscles, reduce sun damage signs, improve moisture. and even protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun's rays.
  • Oxygen Infusion Therapy: An airbrush oxygen machine infuses oxygen, peptides, and hyaluronic acid into your skin, reducing wrinkles and plumping your skin.
  • Aqua Facial: The Aqua Facial is an excellent choice if you're concerned about signs of aging, lines, wrinkles, rough skin texture, or enlarged pores. The treatment includes a light chemical peel, hydradermabrasion, and oxygen infusion.

Would you like to get rid of unwanted hair, fade age spots, or minimize wrinkles? Several laser treatment can help you improve yourlaser treatment appearance. Dr. Christopher Sesslar, in Dayton, OH offers laser treatments and other cosmetic services at Spa Medicca.

Halo Laser Treatment

Halo treatment is a good choice if you have sun damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, or texture issues. The Halo handpiece features a built-in cooling device for your comfort. During treatment, you may feel mild warmth or a stinging sensation but probably won't find the treatment uncomfortable.

After your treatment, you can immediately return to your usual activities. Your skin will start to flake two to five days after your laser session, although you won't experience maximum effects for up to six months. Most people only need one to two treatments to achieve their goals, although additional treatments can be helpful in some cases. It's important to protect your skin with sunscreen following your treatment.

Broadband Light (BBL)

BBL is a versatile laser that's used to eliminate small blood vessels, erase freckles and age spots, improve acne, remove unwanted hair, and improve the firmness and texture of your skin. Heat generated by the laser light breaks up pigments and blood vessels that cause dark spots, redness or visible veins, and also spurs collagen formation, which improves the firmness and texture of your skin.

The treatment can be used on any part of the body, including the chest, shoulders, neck, face, and hands. Treatment takes 30 minutes or less and requires no anesthetic. Your skin may look a little red after the treatment, but the redness will soon fade away. Like the Halo treatment, BBL also increases sun sensitivity. Your Dayton med spa will recommend that you wear sunscreen daily to avoid sunburn and new sun damage.

MicroLaser Peel

Removing the top layer of the skin is an excellent solution if you have shallow scars, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigment, or keratosis. The laser removes a thin layer of skin, along with blemishes, fine lines, and pigments. New cells quickly grow, replacing those removed by the laser, which makes your skin look healthier and more youthful.

Because the laser only targets the outer layers of your skin, you probably won't need any anesthetic, although a numbing cream may be recommended if deeper layers will be targeted.

Improve your skin with laser treatments! Call Dayton, OH, med spa Dr. Sesslar of Spa Medicca at (937) 312-9212 to schedule an appointment.

Could Botox be exactly what you need to revitalize your appearance?botox

Do you hate those crow’s feet that dance along your eyes? Do deep forehead wrinkles make you look frustrated and unhappy? Do you hate that laugh lines have burrowed deep around your mouth? These are issues that everyone deals with as they get older; however, there is a simple solution that could smooth away some of these lines and wrinkles in just a matter of moments. Dr. Christopher Sesslar, in Dayton, OH here to tell you about Botox.

Fight Lines and Wrinkles Without Surgery

Most people assume that they will have to undergo serious or even invasive cosmetic procedures in order to get rid of lines and wrinkles. This is simply not true. While Botox isn’t right for all wrinkles, it can be a simple, non-invasive, and non-surgical way to smooth away dynamic lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes and mouth, and neck.

A Fast Procedure, No Recovery Time

Most people have busy schedules and can’t take time out to get an hours-long treatment or take days off work to recover. If this sounds like you, chances are good that you haven’t gotten the cosmetic treatment you want because you haven’t found time in your schedule.

Fortunately, when you choose to get Botox from our Dayton medspa doctor, administering the Botox injections only takes a couple of minutes. Plus, you go about your regular routine immediately after. This is why some patients choose to even get their Botox treatment on their lunch break.

Feed Your Non-Commitment

We know that some cosmetic treatments are a lifelong commitment, and what if you don’t like the results? Of course, our goal as your cosmetic physician is to ensure that you are as happy as possible with your results; however, we know that Botox isn’t ideal for everyone.

Luckily, if you aren’t happy with the way it looks the results are only temporary, fading away over the course of three to four months. Not sure you are ready to commit to more serious cosmetic dermatology? Don’t worry; Botox might just be the perfect option for you.

Boost Your Confidence

Nothing makes you feel tired or grouchy more than lines and wrinkles that make you look tired and grouchy. By instantly smoothing away these facial wrinkles we can give you the refreshed and younger-looking skin you’ve been wanting, which can instantly improve your appearance and skyrocket your self-confidence.

Do you have questions about getting Botox in Dayton, OH? Are you ready to rejuvenate your appearance and get a quick, easy makeover with amazing results? If so, the next step is to schedule a consultation with Spa Medicca.

Looking great means feeling great, especially when it comes to your complexion. Though the fountain of youth is a myth, cosmetic bbl, broadband lighttreatments are readily available in Centerville, OH. Treatments like Forever Young Broadband Light are able to help you reverse aging; firm, tighten, and even out your facial skin; and simply look younger. Find out more about Forever Young Broadband Light treatments and what they can do for you with Dr. Christopher Sesslar at Spa Medicca.

What is broadband light (BBL) therapy? 
BBL therapy is a new technology which focuses on improving the appearance of the skin. The technology uses pulses of light energy to heat the top layers of the skin, which is then absorbed. The heat stimulates the skin to produce increased collagen, a naturally-occurring substance which keeps the skin taut and firm. The increased production helps the skin look younger and renewing its appearance. The treatment also eliminates the super-fine blood vessels which could cause discolorations in the skin and reduces pigmentation to even skin tone.

What can I expect during a Forever Young BBL treatment? 
You will relax on a treatment table at your doctor's office and wear safety glasses during the treatment. Depending on the size of the area in question, your treatment time can vary from a few minutes to a half hour. You may feel a warm sensation often described as feeling like a rubber band being snapped onto the skin. Your doctor may suggest pairing Forever Young BBL treatments with other cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate your appearance. After your treatment, you should avoid the sun for a few days and follow your doctor’s instructions for caring for your skin.
