Juvederm is a non-invasive injectable cosmetic treatment for smoothing and softening lines and wrinkles on the face. Juvederm can give you younger-looking skin with results lasting as long as one year before additional treatments are needed. Several types of Juvederm are available at Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, where our medspa team, lead by Dr. Christopher Sesslar, can recommend a specific Juvederm treatment to help you achieve your desired results.

Juvederm Injectable Fillers

Juvederm makes it possible to achieve skin that is smoother and more youthful-looking without surgical intervention. It is an injectable dermal filler that can minimize or eliminate lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Additionally, some Juvederm treatments are safely used to treat fine lines around the eyes. The experienced professionals at our medspa in Dayton, OH, can recommend a specific Juvederm treatment that is best suited for the area of skin you wish to target.

Types of Juvederm treatments include:

  • Juvederm Ultra XC
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
  • Juvederm Voluma XC
  • Juvederm Vollure XC
  • Juvederm Volbella XC

Juvederm products contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural protein that is easily and gradually absorbed into the body. Young, healthy skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, which delivers nutrients to the skin and helps hydrate it. Hyaluronic acid is one of the reasons youthful skin appears smooth and plump. Unfortunately, the skin’s ability to naturally produce enough hyaluronic acid diminishes with age, which is where Juvederm treatments can help. Juvederm delivers the hyaluronic acid your skin is missing.

Juvederm Treatments

The Juvederm filler is a gel-like substance that is administered via injection directly into the treatment area, performed right here at our Dayton medspa. For example, Juvederm is injected directly into the skin around the mouth to eliminate lines often referred to as “parentheses.” Treatment sessions typically last only about 15 minutes but could take longer if additional injections are needed or multiple areas are being treated at one time. Immediately after treatment, your skin will be visibly smoother and your results will continue to improve over the following weeks. There is no recovery period so you can continue with your regular activities right away.

Smoother and younger-looking skin is just a Juvederm treatment away. To find out which Juvederm treatment is right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Christopher Sesslar by calling our medspa, Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, at (937) 312-9212.

CoolSculpting is an innovative body contouring treatment for eliminating unwanted fat cells. This non-surgical procedure involves freezing away fat cells in targeted areas of the body. We offer CoolSculpting at Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, where Dr. Christopher Sesslar can determine if you are a candidate for this exciting new body contouring treatment.

How CoolSculpting Works

CoolSculpting can be thought of as a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction for removing stubborn fat that has been difficult to shed through traditional diet and exercise methods. It is an excellent option for individuals who are uncomfortable undergoing a surgical body contouring procedure. CoolSculpting is an effective method for removing unwanted fat cells from various areas of the body, including the belly, buttocks, thighs, and arms. CoolSculpting patients in Dayton use it to treat love handles or a double chin.

The way CoolSculpting works is by freezing fat cells in the area being targeted. This method is so effective because fat tissue freezes at a higher temperature than other tissues in the body. What that means is that the fat cells crystallize more quickly, which allows the CoolSculpting equipment to readily target fat cells without affecting other tissues in the body. The body sees frozen fat cells as dead tissue. Its natural response is to eliminate these dead tissues by gradually flushing the fat cells out of the body over time.

Since it does take time for the body to remove the frozen fat cells, your body contouring results will not be immediately visible after your CoolSculpting treatment at our med spa in Dayton. Most patients can see significantly noticeable results within about two months following treatment. Although, some patients have been able to observe a more contoured body in as little as three weeks. Results can potentially continue improving for up to six months after undergoing CoolSculpting.

If you are interested in a nonsurgical body contouring option, CoolSculpting could be just what you are looking for. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Christopher Sesslar to learn more about CoolSculpting by calling Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, at (937) 312-9212.

In just one appointment at The Fountain Clinic in Centerville, Botox quickly and inexpensively rejuvenates your appearance without downtime.

If the lines in your face aren't quite matching up with your age or your attitude, you might be considering a cosmetic treatment to smooth them out. The "crow's feet" that develop around the eyes and "frown lines" between the eyebrows can make you appear older or more stressed out than you actually are. These inconvenient lines are no match for Botox, a popular cosmetic treatment offered by Spa Medicca, a med spa serving Centerville, OH.

How Botox works

Botox is used as a cosmetic skin treatment aimed at reducing wrinkles and fine lines on the face, particularly those near the eyes and forehead. The Botox solution is administered by your Centerville area dermatologists using a tiny needle containing purified botulinum toxin. This naturally-occurring protein works by halting muscle movement under the targeted areas of the face. Wrinkles happen because the facial muscles are constantly in motion when chewing, talking, even reading, or blinking. When those movements are restricted, however, the wrinkles diminish over a few days' time. The effects of Botox on the muscles usually last between three and four months, but results vary with each patient at Spa Medicca.

Great results

Botox is well-established as an aesthetic procedure, making it a safe, affordable, and minimally invasive procedure at your Cleveland area med spa. While surgery can be expensive with long-term recovery, Botox is an excellent way to achieve similar results without the cost of downtime. Typical results are subtle and the final result leaves patients looking younger and refreshed instead of constricted or "pulled." Recently, a clinical study found that the vast majority of people who chose Botox were very pleased with their results; they all reported that their appearance had improved. This kind of satisfaction is what Spa Medicca works toward each day. They want to bring positive change to all their Centerville area patients' appearances and lives.

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:


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!

Trust the professionals at Spa Medicca in Dayton to find a laser treatment that meets your needs! Call us at 937-312-9212.

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.
