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.

Pamper your skin and enhance the way you look with a specialty facial treatment.

Despite the large number of DIY skin remedies and over-the-counter face masks, sometimes there are issues that you just have to turn to facial treatmentthe pros to improve and treat. No matter whether you are looking to reduce acne or get firmer skin, our Dayton, OH, medspa doctor, Dr. Christopher Sesslar, can provide facials to meet your skincare needs.

Here are just some of the top facial treatments we offer at our Dayton office:

Science of Youth Facial

Just as the name suggests, this facial can help repair those early signs of aging and help tighten skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Our age-reversing antioxidant mask can help keep your skin supple and hydrated while also reducing the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and other signs of sun damage.

Oxygen Infusion Therapy

Are you looking to get glowing, radiant skin? If you said “yes” then you may want to consider getting an oxygen facial. This treatment provides intense hydration to the face and neck, while infusing it with botanicals, minerals, vitamins, and nutrients. This treatment also promotes collagen production, which can improve skin’s firmness and youth.

Whether you are looking to smooth away those early signs of aging, wanting to make your skin more radiant and supple, or wishing to heal acne, oxygen infusion facial therapy may be the therapeutic treatment you’ve been looking for.

Dermafiling

This resurfacing facial treatment exfoliates the outer surface of the skin, removing bacteria, oil, dirt, and dead skin cells with citrus enzymes and a diamond-tipped, skin-polishing tool known as a dermafile. Once the skin has been exfoliated, Dr. Sesslar’s Esthetician will apply a blueberry and hyaluronic acid mask to provide intense hydration for luminous results.

Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment that offers a simple way for people to look younger without the use of plastic surgery. Read on to botoxlearn how Dr. Christopher Sesslar of Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, helps his patients improve their appearance through this amazing procedure!

Should I choose Botox?

Botox injections paralyze the muscles that are used to make facial expressions, such as squinting and frowning. When these muscles don't contract, your skin relaxes and becomes smoother, thus minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. You'll begin to notice a difference in your skin about a week after your treatment, although it may take up to two weeks to see the full effects of the injections.

Botox results typically last three to four months, although scheduling regular follow-up injections with your Dayton doctor can help you maintain your results.

Botox may be a good choice for you if:

  • You want to look younger: Botox offers an excellent way to diminish noticeable lines and wrinkles that make you look older. Although it's very effective in treating fine lines and wrinkles, it's not the best option for deep wrinkles.
  • You look tired or angry: Wrinkles and lines, particularly those that develop on your forehead or between the eyes, can make you look as if you're exhausted or perpetually in a bad mood. Botox smooths forehead furrows and "11" lines between your eyes, giving your appearance a noticeable boost.
  • You have crow's feet: Crow's feet, those fine lines that fan out from the corners of your eyes, contribute to the aging effect. Luckily, botox injections can make the lines much less obvious.
  • You don't like the way your mouth looks: Botox also improves the appearance of fine lines around your mouth, softens nasolabial fold lines that extend from your nose to your mouth and minimizes marionette lines that bracket either side of your mouth.
  • You're in good health: As long as you're healthy, Botox may be a good option for you!
