Medical Spa Services FAQ
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® and other neuromodulators prevent muscle contraction by blocking nerve signals to specific muscles, giving a more refreshed appearance. BOTOX®, Dysport and Xeomin are all neuromodulators that work similarly. We will discuss which product is right for you based on your individual needs and concerns.
BOTOX® and other neuromodulators are used in the temporary treatment of fine lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movement. It is a safe and effective way to prevent existing wrinkles from getting deeper and newer ones from forming. The goal of treatment is to preserve facial expression and give a natural result. Commonly treated areas include forehead lines, frown lines and lines formed by squinting/smiling. The treatment is quick, requires little to no downtime, and leads to noticeable results in as soon as 5-7 days. Full effect is appreciated by 2 weeks and may last 3-4 months. We recommend a two week follow up appointment to assess if further treatment is needed.
What is Filler?
Fillers work by replenishing soft tissue that has been lost due to aging. Lux Aesthetics only carries the highest quality FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that can be dissolved and reversed. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in our body and plays an important role in maintaining tissue hydration. It is a key component to radiant, luminous skin. Lux Aesthetics carries both Juvederm and Restylane fillers to allow for a more diverse selection to meet your individual needs. These HA fillers vary in viscosity, texture and level of structural support. We will determine the appropriate product depending on the area of treatment.
What we perceive as aging isn’t just skin deep, but also reflects changes to the deeper layers of our face. For some, treatment of some wrinkles can be accomplished with BOTOX®. For others, the best treatment course is filler to make the skin appear plump, hydrated and refreshed. Filler can be used in a variety of areas and is commonly used to fill creases and folds, restore the natural contours of our face, and give our lips a fuller, more youthful appearance. Results are immediate but require a healing process typically lasting up to a week. Filler can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months depending on treated area, product and patient metabolism.
What is a VI Peel?
The VI Peel is a next generation peel formulated to provide incredible results without the burning sensation from other peels. This peel can be done monthly then seasonally to keep your skin glowing and healthy. The VI Peel is a medical-grade chemical peel that helps to minimize signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, melasma and uneven skin texture, dullness, and tone. There are six uniquely formulated peels that your provider can choose from based on your specific needs. The VI Peel is a quick, safe for all skin types, and offers incredible results in as little as a week.
Why a VI Peel?
Benefits include improved tone, texture and clarity in your skin. Reduction and possible elimination of age spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation (melasma). Softens lines and wrinkles plus clearing of acne skin conditions and reduces/eliminates acne scars. A VI Peel also helps to stimulate the production of collagen for firmer, more youthful skin.
Chemical peels are one of the easiest skin resurfacing treatments that offer incredible results fast! A single treatment effectively sheds the outermost layers of skin, promotes cell turnover and encourages new collagen production. The skin acts as a barrier and is made up of several layers of dead skin cells. When these cells are not effectively shed, the result is often a dull complexion. A customized chemical peel will dissolve this outer layer and reveal a new layer of healthy, vibrant skin.
