The Normal Aging Process

Over time, the changes in our structure cause changes in our appearance which we call aging. 

As our skin gets thinner, collagen production slows down, and our elastin and hyaluronic acid infrastructure are depleted. This leads to volume loss, sagging skin, and static wrinkles.

As collagen production decreases, the facial fat pads start to redistribute within the face. For example, the forehead and cheek fat pads will lessen resulting in volume loss and redistribute to around the mouth or jaw. This is why folds around the mouth and jowls become more prominent. 

Over time the bones recess in the face which also leads to volume loss. This bone loss removes the structural support for the tissues on top of it resulting in less defined cheekbones, softened jawlines, hollow eyes, and sagging in the neck. 

Importance of Dermal Fillers and Biostimulators

Dermal Fillers are important to restore volume to the areas of the face that have loss of bone and fat. This can create a natural restoration to the face for a revitalized look. 

Biostimulators are facial injectables that targets fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging due to collagen loss, gradually helping restore skin structure and volume. These injectables take weeks to months to stimulate collagen, but last up to 2 years improving the skin quality. 

Combining these two treatments is the secret to long lasting natural results. 

Facial Balancing

If you are looking to get filler or biostimulators, it is important to understand facial balancing. 

Facial balancing considers the proportions of the forehead, nose, lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks to provide facial harmonization for the client. This is recommended for achieving better facial symmetry, proportions, and balance between different features by using injectable dermal fillers, biostimulators, and neurotoxins. To achieve a natural result there is a need to balance all features of the face, not just one part.

Why Combination Skin Treatments Are Important

Aging is a result of several types of changes occurring in all five facial anatomical layers: skeleton, ligaments, muscles, adipose tissue, and skin. To target the structural effects of aging, combined intervention is required to relax, volumize, resurface, and rejuvenate facial skin. No single technology, filler, or neuromodulator can achieve all the results desired in treating the aging face (Fabi et al., 2017). 

Treatment options include: 

Neurotoxin (Botox, Xeomin, Jeuveau, or Dysport) to relax the muscles that induce wrinkles. Dermal Filler(Restylane, Radiesse, Versa) to replace the volume loss of bone and fat. 

Radio Frequency Micro-needling (Morpheus8) to improve collagen loss and skin texture. 

Lasers: Intense Pulsed Light, Hair removal, and Vasculaze for sunspots, vascular lesions, and pigmentation.

What is Versa?

Revanesse Lips +, known as Versa, is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is one of the safest fillers for the area of the lips. This line of filler is rigorously tested to achieve the smoothest form of hyaluronic acid dermal filler for injection to the lips. 

What makes Versa Different?

The technology used is state-of-the-art to achieve a uniform dermal filler that adds volume that is smooth and sculpted for the lips. In clinical studies, Versa had minimal swelling, pain, and bruising compared to other forms of lip filler. This filler also had less long term side effects and lasted longer when compared to other fillers. 

What does getting Lip Filler look like?

The nurse practitioner will have a consultation about shape and volume that is desired. A treatment plan will be constructed including after care and follow up treatments. After consenting to the lip augmentation procedure, we will place numbing on your lips for 10-15 minutes to ensure you are comfortable during the injections. After the numbing is complete, the nurse practitioner will then use a small needle to inject the Versa into your lips. Once the injections are complete, we will place our custom lip balm to promote healing and the office visit will be complete.

What are the Side Effects?

There are no true adverse side effects from Versa per the clinical trials. The common side effects would include: swelling, bruising, and soreness. 

When Can I get Versa?

Morpheus8 (RF microneedling) and Radiesse (Dermal Filler) for Skin Rejuvenation

Normal Aging Process

Over time, the changes in our structure cause changes in our appearance which we call aging. 

Skin: Our skin gets thinner, produces less collagen, and decreases in elasticity, resulting in our skin sagging and the appearance of wrinkles due to volume loss. Since collagen production slows down, our elastin and hyaluronic acid infrastructure are depleted, leading to volume loss.

Fat: As collagen production decreases, the facial fat pads start to redistribute within the face. For example, the forehead and cheek fat pads will lessen resulting in volume loss and redistribute to around the mouth or jaw. This is why folds around the mouth and jowls become more prominent. 

Bone: Over time the bones recess in the face which leads to volume loss. This bone loss removes the structural support for the tissues on top of it. This results in less defined cheekbones, softened jawlines, hollow eyes, and sagging in the neck. 

Why Combination Skin Treatments Are Important

For the most natural rejuvenation of the face, all changes that result from the aging process should be corrected. Aging is a result of several types of changes occurring in all five facial anatomical layers: skeleton, ligaments, muscles, adipose tissue, and skin. 

To target the structural effects of aging, combined intervention is required to relax, volumize, resurface, and rejuvenate facial skin. No single technology, filler, or neuromodulator can achieve all the results desired in treating the aging face (Fabi et al., 2017). 

The different options include: Neurotoxin (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) to relax the muscles that induce wrinkles, Dermal Filler (Restylane, Radiesse) to replace the volume loss of bone and fat, Radio Frequency Micro-needling (Morpheus8) to improve collagen loss and skin texture.

What is Morpheus8? What results and recovery/timeline?

Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge treatment that uses microneedling and radiofrequency technology to improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Morpheus8 is a non-surgical treatment that uses a handheld device to deliver microneedling and radiofrequency energy to the skin. The device has fine needles that create micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response. At the same time, the radiofrequency energy heats the underlying tissues, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin.

Treats: Fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, uneven skin texture, Sagging skin, Dimpling of skin, Cellulite, Scarring and/or discoloration of the skin

The treatment can be customized to target specific areas of the face and body, making it a versatile option for addressing a variety of concerns. Morpheus8 is relatively quick and painless, with most sessions taking less than an hour to complete after numbing for up to an hour. There is minimal downtime or recovery time needed afterward.

After your treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling in the treatment area, but these side effects should resolve anywhere from a few hours to a few days depending on the part of the body that has been done. We apply microbial cleanser and restorative serum that will boost healing prior to you leaving the office. You can use gentle moisturizer and sunscreen to help soothe and protect your skin on the same day of treatment. We recommend refraining from touching the area and applying generous amounts of moisturizer to help with redness and comfort. We will also instruct you to use a gentle moisturizer for the next 7 days as the area is healing. If done on your face, you should be makeup free for 24-48 hours.  

What is Radiesse? What results and recovery/timeline?

Calcium hydroxylapatite, or CaHA, is what makes Radiesse unique as an injectable aesthetic treatment. It’s the first and only CaHA portfolio available that provides both immediate, natural-looking results and long-term improvement.

CaHA particles then integrate into your skin and create a “scaffold” that stimulates collagen and elastin production.


Formed collagen and elastin replaces the correction provided by Radiesse, smoothing lines and promoting renewed skin structure.

Another reason why Radiesse is unique is that it’s specially formulated to treat areas on the face, neck, decolletage, abdomen, thighs, and hands. This allows more areas to be treated where you may have concerns with more immediate results. 

The recovery/downtime is very minimal as you can return to your day-to-day activities with only a few restrictions such as not exercising for 24 hours after injections and limiting sun exposure. 

Why both?

Combining these two treatments allows the dermal filler to replace the volume loss of bone and fat while the Morpheus8 improves collagen loss and skin texture. Treating both concerns at the same time will provide more substantial results that last more long-term.

Are you ready to have that perfect GLOW?

VI Peel + Neurotoxin + IV Therapy = GlowTox 

Our GlowTox event is on Saturday, June 3rd. We would like for you to join us for our Summer Event that is highlighting our VI Peel and Neurotoxin (ie:Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) combination treatment known as ToxBooster. We will be offering exclusive pricing on our ToxBooster treatments for those that come to the event. Read more below about VI Peels!

What is a VI Peel?

VI Peels are a type of chemical peel that is used to further improve the skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. This treatment is a medium-depth peel that targets and exfoliates the top layer of skin. VI Peels also stimulate the deeper layers of skin and help promote collagen growth and elastin production which creates anti-aging effects. This treatment is particularly popular as VI Peels have many of the same benefits as deep chemical peels. However, these peels create less discomfort, pain, and swelling after treatment since they only penetrate certain layers of the skin. 

Why combine a VI Peel and Neurotoxin?

The purpose of the ToxBooster package is to help further refine skin texture, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, improve skin tone, and reduce hyperpigmentation. This is a great combination treatment that targets ALL signs of aging from sun damage to uneven textured skin. 

What to Expect During your Treatment?

During your treatment, the provider will cleanse your face and then apply 3-5 layers of the VI peel solution on your face (and neck if wanted!). You might experience mild tingling, coolness, or a “pins and needle” sensation. The VI Peel is one of the most tolerated applications compared to other types of chemical peels. After the application of the peel, your provider will then inject the neurotoxin. The neurotoxin will be injected in the areas you are wanting improvement in fine lines and wrinkles (between the eyes, forehead, around eyes, around mouth, and chin). This only takes a few minutes depending on what areas you elect to be done. Your practitioner will most likely want pictures prior to injecting to evaluate the results of the peel and neurotoxin.  

What to Expect after your Treatment?

The VI Peel needs to sit on your face for 6 hours. Once those 6 hours are up, gently cleanse the skin and pat it dry. You can also apply some moisturizer or SPF to bring down any swelling and protect your skin from light. Normally the area treated by the peel will look a little darker or appear red and swollen for the next 24 to 48 hours. The peeling will then begin 2-3 days after the application. The peeling can take anywhere from 3 to 7 full days for the top layer of skin to peel off. During this time, your skin might feel dry or tight. Peeling may look like light flaking, sheet peeling, or may be barely visible to the naked eye. The amount of visible peeling you will experience varies greatly. You will peel as much as your skin needs to peel. It is important to not pick, pull, or roll the skin as this could lead to significant irritation and possible hyperpigmentation and scarring.

What are the Restrictions during the VI Peel?

No shaving, waxing, exfoliating, swimming, or hot tubs during the peeling process. Shaving and Exfoliating can be resumed after the peeling process is complete. Waxing can be resumed 2 weeks after peeling process is complete.

How often can I get a VI Peel?

VI Peel treatments can be scheduled every 4-6 weeks for best results. It is recommended to combine this treatment with neurotoxin, IPL, and Morpheus8. Combining the VI Peel with other treatments is important for full face rejuvenation to address all your skin concerns.

During Office Treatment:

During a Morpheus8 treatment, we will first cleanse your skin to remove any dirt or makeup so that we are starting with a clean skin surface. We will then apply numbing cream to the treatment area to help minimize any discomfort. Once that numbing cream has taken effect which is anywhere between 45 minutes to 60 minutes, we will use the Morpheus8 device to deliver the microneedling and radiofrequency energy to your skin. You may feel a slight prickling sensation as the needles penetrate the skin, but most people find the treatment to be relatively painless.

What to Expect after Treatment:

After your treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling in the treatment area, but these side effects should resolve anywhere from a few hours to a few days depending on the part of the body that has been done.

Our New Medical Weight Loss Program

In January we are launching a 12 week Medical Weight Loss program. Our program will consist of:

  • A weekly FDA approved injection regimen of Semaglutide
  • A weekly injection of MIC + B12 (a metabolism boosting combination of vitamins including B12) to boost metabolism and counteract negative side effects
  • Weekly monitoring check ins with our Nurse Practitioner
  • A FREE 12 week virtual workout program provided by Ready Anywhere Fitness

Semaglutide is a medication that has been shown to be effective for weight loss in clinical trials. Below, we’ll take a closer look at how semaglutide works, the potential benefits and risks of using it for weight loss, and some more important things to consider before starting treatment.

Semaglutide is a type of medication known as a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist. It works by mimicking the effects of a hormone called GLP-1, which is naturally produced in the body. GLP-1 plays a role in regulating blood sugar levels and feelings of hunger and fullness. By increasing the levels of GLP-1 in the body, semaglutide can help to reduce appetite and promote weight loss.

One of the potential benefits of semaglutide for weight loss is that it can help to improve other health conditions related to obesity, such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. In clinical trials, semaglutide has been shown to improve blood sugar control and also reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in people with pre-diabetes.

It’s important to note, however, that semaglutide is not a magic solution for weight loss. Like any medication, it can have side effects and may not be suitable for everyone. It also needs to be paired with healthy diet and lifestyle choices. Some common side effects of semaglutide include nausea, diarrhea, and constipation. That’s why it is very important that you are monitored by a healthcare professional.

If you’re considering semaglutide for weight loss, make an appointment to see our Nurse Practitioner. Emily will look at your medical history, BMI, and other factors to see if you are eligible for our program. Semaglutide, healthy diet, exercise and monitoring should give you a very effective plan for sustainable weight loss plan.

Call, text or book online for a free consultation if you are interested in our weight loss program.

Listen to Brittany talk about why she chose our weight loss program!
