Have you heard of the liquid facelift?

Liquid facelift bucks county

You may know someone who had a facelift, but have you heard about something called the liquid facelift? It’s a term used for a certain non-surgical treatment that can provide the benefits of a facelift without incisions, anesthesia or any downtime. Let’s cover the basics so you know why the liquid facelift has become a popular treatment for so many people. 

What is a Liquid Facelift?

A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation. These dermal fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds, leaving you looking years younger in the process. Generally Botox injections and dermal filler injections such as Juvederm or Restyalne are used for liquid facelifts.

What can you expect with a Liquid Facelift?

During a liquid facelift, dermal fillers and Botox are used to add volume, lift, contour the midface.

These dermal fillers are then used to sculpt and refine the jawline, chin, add volume to lips and reduce wrinkles from the forehead with Botox. 

The liquid facelift is highly customizable and four syringes or more of dermal fillers may be needed depending on the areas of your face you want to focus on.

It’s  best to get a consultation at a reputable medspa with a certified medical injector who will create a liquid face lift plan for you. 

The results of a liquid facelift can last anywhere between a year or two, depending on the dermal fillers used.

To see if you are a candidate for a liquid facelift, it’s best to start with a consultation.

If you are looking into doing a liquid facelift or searching for a provider that does lip injections, jawline contouring, or would like to reduce wrinkles from your forehead with Botox and you live in or around the Bucks County, PA area, request your free consultation at Healthy Solutions Medspa online, or give us a call at (267) 388-0300.

Everything You Need To Know About Eye Filler

Tired of looking tired? Others feel the same, and far more than you’d think! If you dislike your under eye bags, under eye filler may provide a solution.

Why Get An Under Eye Filler Treatment?

“Dark circles” under your eyes, or “under-eye bags” are both umbrella terms that can describe a wide variety of under eye issues. 

If you are self-conscious or struggle with the appearance of the skin under your eyes, you typically are not speaking generally about something that “bothers you a little”. Under eye dark circles can be blindly apparent. 

With the stigma that comes with dark circles, not doing anything about them can really do some damage to your everyday confidence. 

The stigma that has, and sadly will always, walk hand in hand with under eye bags, is exhaustion. 

No matter how much information we are aware of, we will still find ourselves assuming the woman across the room with dark circles didn’t catch enough sleep the evening before. 

Even though we are aware the causes of dark circles have nothing to do with our energy, without the best concealer makeup, we find ourselves being asked if we are sick, tired, or working too hard.

Basically, when it comes to under-eye bags, there is no limit to how much time and money we will spend exploring products, treatments and types of makeup to address the issue. It is exhausting work to not look exhausted. 

Thanks for the irony of Mother Nature… always a jokester. 

What Is An Under Eye Filler Treatment?

An under eye filler treatment is when hyaluronic acid is injected into targeted areas under the skin beneath the eye or tear trough in order to minimize hollows, dark circles, and to correct age related volume loss. 

Is Under Eye Filler Treatment Safe?

The use of dermal fillers for tear troughs have been done “off label” by many practitioners over the years, but recently, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC was FDA approved for the improvement of infraorbital hollows.

With an under eye filler treatment with Juvederm Volbella for under eye bags, you won’t need to hide behind concealer any longer.. 

How Long Does Under Eye Filler Last?

You can expect the results to last for up to one year with Juvederm Volbella for the under eyes.

What Areas Can Be Injected With Under Eye Filler?

Tear troughs – Filler may be used to smooth out the curved line under your eyes that starts at the inside corner of the eye and runs down toward the cheek.

Under eye bags – Filler may be used to erase or soften any other fine lines and wrinkles underneath the eyes. The skin underneath the eye is very thin and prone to wrinkles.

How Much Is Under Eye Filler?

The treatment price can vary depending on how much under eye filler you will need which is established during your consultation, but typically can range between $800 – $1600. 

Where Can I Get Under Eye Filler?

It’s important to find a reputable medical office or medical spa that offers FDA approved dermal fillers like Juvederm Volbella and that have a great reputation.

Always do your research about the practice on Google and read their reviews. And, if you live in Bucks County, PA and looking for a provider that specializes in under eye filler, contact us at (267) 388-0300 or fill out a form online here.

Botox vs. Dysport vs. Xeomin vs. Jeuveau

Which Botox is the best?

There is only one Botox but there are other similar neurotoxins on the market called Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau.

What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?

Botox was FDA approved in 2002 and was the first neurotoxin used for cosmetic purposes. Botox Cosmetic treats moderate to severe lines on the forehead and crows’ feet.
Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It was FDA approved in 2009 in the United States. Dysport may act quicker in some patients than Botox in seeing results. The biggest difference between Botox and Dysport is the quantity of units needed due to the potency of Dysport. Dysport requires 2-3 units to 1 unit of Botox so if an area requires 25 units of Botox, you may need 50 plus units of Dysport. While Dysport maybe cheaper than Botox, the quantity of units of Dysport physicians need to use is more than Botox and thus there is not a big difference in price. In addition, Dysport has been shown to drift more than Botox causing relaxation of neighboring muscles. Unlike other toxins, Dysport contains cow milk protein and therefore cannot be used for those that are allergic to milk.

What is the difference between Botox and Xeomin?

XEOMIN® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults for a short period of time (temporary). FDA approved in 2011 in the United States. The cost of Xeomin is about the same as Botox and the number of units needed for treatment is the same as Botox. Xeomin is said to have a slower onset at day 4 vs Botox is 72 hours. It is a pure form of botulinum toxin and can be used for patients with resistance build up to other toxins.

What is the difference between Botox and Jeuveau?

Jeuveau™ is the newest neurotoxin also know in the market as Newtox. The prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs injection is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). FDA approved in 2019. Jeuveau can cost less than Botox but with Botox running promotions, they typically are similar in price. While Botox is approved for therapeutic and cosmetic treatments such aseyelid spasms, severe underarm sweating, migraines, overactive bladder, pediatric upper limb spasticity, and relaxing wrinkles, Jeuveau is only approved for cosmetic purposes. Since Botox has been on the market the longest, there are more clinical safety studies than Jeuveau.

Which neurotoxin is right for you?

It is best to discuss all your options with a physician during your consultation.

More on Botox…

Does Botox improve your mood?

Beginner’s Guide to Lip Filler

A Guide to Lip Filler

So, you are a lip filler newbie! 

We all know that in a perfect world, we would take a Med-Spa vacation with no scheduling conflicts and unlimited down time. 

The reality is, however, is that this is not plausible by any means (if it is, we applaud you, and please share your secret). 

Between holidays, birthdays, work events, weddings, recitals, graduations, and even simple social gatherings (we could go on), it is important to know what you can expect before, during and after finally taking the plunge for the perfect pout. 

Let’s check it out! 

I’ll TAKE ONE LIP FILLER TO GO PLEASE!

Okay – you are excited. We completely understand. 

Excitement, however, is very different than impulsive or impatient. 

When it comes to Dermal Filler Treatments of any kind, it is important to take the time to discuss your options with an experienced and certified dermal filler injector. 

This means, seek out a professional who provides you with proof of certifications, is willing to show you before & after successes, and whose name either starts with “Dr.” or ends with “R.N”. 

Take your time, schedule a consult, and do not be afraid to ask any and all questions that come to mind. 

Luscious lips should not be a spur of the moment decision. 

Stay away from the fast food version of dermal fillers and spring for the steak house. 

Now is not the time to cut corners – We are talking about your face!

LIP INJECTIONS FOR A FILLED CALENDER?

Searching for the perfect pout? A lot of our patients are. 

Therefore, it is no surprise that we are asked quite often about the aftermath of Lip Filler . Appointments for Lip Filler are on average 30 minutes, however if it is your first time, it may be somewhat longer. 

This time would include having before photos taken, speaking with the Doctor or Nurse about your expectations, numbing the area and then having the filler placed.  

The lips have somewhat sensitive skin, so many find it is slightly more painful than the average Botox injection.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER LIP FILLER?

You already know, the skin on your lips is far more delicate and sensitive than the rest of your skin. 

Sensitive skin means swelling will come easily, but after the first 72 hours, you will find you have seen the worst of any unseemly aftermath. 

This also means that you may have bruising, however it will subside after 48 hours. 

Your medical professional will most likely want to wait 2 weeks for a follow up visit, so that the filler can be completely settled and the full effect can be seen. 

WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON MISCONCEPTION?

The most common misunderstanding regarding lip fillers, is actually thinking that your professional made a mistake and over-puffed your pout. 

You may think that your lips are far too big from what you and the doctor or nurse had discussed. 

Good news? You most likely don’t have anything to worry about! 

Try to remember that although the initial swelling went down, it can take up to a week to see the full effect of the filler making a home in your new smile. 

So don’t give in to the urge to panic the next day assuming something is wrong.  Time heals all swelling!

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER LIP FILLER? 

Just like with any type of dermal filler, you should avoid laying down for at a minimum, 4 hours. 

This will help minimize the chance of the filler migrating to unwanted areas of the face, or even just to another section of your lip. 

You should also follow the same rules about not working out for 24 hours after injections. 

Flushed skin will increase your chances of bruising, and sweat on open skin, even on the smallest of points, can lead to infection. 

I’M A FILLER PRO – A LIP INJECTION IS NO DIFFERENT, RIGHT?

Your new lips require a little more extra care than the average Botox injection aftermath you are most likely use to. 

Most obvious, but most commonly forgotten, your lips look temping right after treatment, but sorry! 

Tell those boys to keep the smooches at bay for 24 hours.  

Aside from the fact that you may be submitting your injection sight to unnecessary germs, the amount of muscles used when stealing a kiss, are far more than you realize. 

You may unknowingly shift the shape of your lips that seemed so desirable. 

What else should you look out for? 

It’s best to keep the toasts of the mock-tail variety for now. Alcohol acts as a blood thinner. 

This can increase your likelihood of visible bruising, swelling, and inflammation. 

Not to mention, alcohol can really dehydrate you! One of the benefits of Lip Filler is that your lips will be far more moisturized. 

Hyaluronic acid, a main ingredient in lip filler, is also naturally found in the body. 

Dehydrating yourself means altering the actual compound of the filler. 

Smoking has been shown to increase your risk of infection after getting lip fillers, so it should be avoided. 

Smoking also causes your lips to pucker, which can apply pressure on the lips and be painful after injections. 

Try to avoid smoking for at least 24–48 hours after getting lip fillers.

 

WHAT IS THE TAKEAWAY?

Lip fillers are an amazing way to plump up your smile, fix any asymmetry, or restore youthful moisture to your pout.

The Ultimate Guide to Laser Hair Removal for Men in 2022

Laser hair removal has become one of the most popular methods to remove body and facial hair. While you could shave, trim or wax, laser hair removal is the only way to get permanent results when grooming and managing body hair. 

While laser hair removal is sought after by both women and men, everyone’s interest and reason for it may be different. 

Why men love laser hair removal?

Men want to remove body hair for many reasons, such as managing ingrown hairs, getting rid of unwanted body hair, achieving smoother skin and more muscle definition, going fully bald, reducing folliculitis and taming inflamed hair follicles and bumps on the skin. 

Why do male athletes turn to laser hair removal?

Athletes love laser hair removal because it helps with less friction, chafing, and less to no shaving for better performance and muscle definition. 


Others who may just have excessive hair growth like laser hair removal to thin out or get rid of the unwanted hair in areas they have to regularly shave or wax in order to feel most comfortable. 

Those that regularly shave and experience razor burn or folliculitis, the inflamed hair follicles and bumps that appear after shaving, like it to calm these skin problems and get rid of it for good. 

No matter the reason for wanting to remove hair from the body, laser hair removal is the best and only option for achieving all of these results. 

How does laser hair removal for men work?

Laser hair removal works by light beams targeting the hair follicles underneath the skin to essentially disrupt the hair growth cycle, without damaging the skin. The light from the laser destroys the hair shaft to inhibit or delay future growth. 

It is only guaranteed that results will show permanent hair reduction instead of growth – however, depending on the number of sessions and your skin and hair type/color, permanent removal can also be achieved. 

Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?

Those with lighter skin and darker hair usually experience more drastic and permanent results. It is recommended that patients do around 6-8 sessions of laser hair removal to see more permanent results.

Why the Hydrafacial is great to do in the Winter

Best Hydrafacial in Bucks County

The Hydrafacial is quickly becoming one of the most sought after skin treatments available. With immediate effects and no downtime, it became obvious that this elite but affordable treatment was going to be a patient favorite. When is the perfect time to give this treatment a try? Right now, in the winter! Why? We are here to tell you!

THE IMPORTANCE OF HYDRATION

We all know that staying hydrated is important to our overall health, because our bodies are made up of 70% water! What is the human body’s biggest organ? Believe it or not, it is the skin!  Therefore, the skin stands to gain the most from hydration. That means, we not only need to drink enough water, but that external steps such as getting treatments like the Hydrafacial are also necessary in keeping our skin hydrated.

 

WHAT HAPPENS TO DEHYDRATED SKIN?

The outermost layer of the skin is responsible for flushing toxins and carrying nutrients to skin cells. Without the proper amount of moisture to do so, dead cells remain on the skin to clog pores and create uneven texture, and healthy cells become thinner, resulting in low elasticity and more wrinkles. Dehydrated skin can not only be visually unappealing, but it can have fairly uncomfortable and sometimes painful effects. Not taking the extra steps to treat our skin to some well deserved moisture can lead to cracked and even bleeding skin.

 

COLD WEATHER AND DRY SKIN

Chillier temperatures combined with lower humidity levels is a recipe for dry air, which can draw moisture directly from your skin. Even with avoiding the cold, harsh, winter winds outside, your skin is subjected to the dry elements of winter with indoor heat. Not only that, but our pores will contract in cold temperatures to preserve warmth, limiting the ability for oxygen to reach skin cells and help them regenerate.

 

BUT DOESN’T DRY SKIN MEAN LESS BREAKOUTS?

This is probably the biggest and most commonly believed myths regarding the skin. People often mistake drier skin, to less oily skin. However, when skin becomes dry, it actually reacts by over producing natural oils to compensate for the lack of moisture. These oils sit on the skin and form blemishes. Without excess moisture to form new and healthy skin cells, dead cells will camp out on the face and clog pores. Excess dead skin paired with excess oils can result in a full on break out! 

 

MASKNE IN THE WINTER

Unfortunately, many of us are all too familiar with the term “Maskne”. Acne caused while wearing a face mask, aka “Maskne”, happens when our pores become clogged as a result of friction from certain materials, alongside heat and humidity under our masks. Exfoliation is key in preventing breakouts, but the ingredients found in at-home exfoliants, such as acids and retinol, have the ability to dry skin out. With our skin already susceptible to being parched and flaky in the winter, this is hardly ideal.

 

WHY THE HYDRAFACIAL IS THE SOLUTION

 

The common factor in all winter skin problems is a lack of hydration. Facials have obvious benefits for all skin types throughout the entirety of the year which includes the removal of dead skin cells, the cleansing of clogged pores and the relaxation of facial muscles. The Hydrafacial, however, uses a tool that makes extracting dead skin and ‘gunk’ non-invasive, and that manually infuses your skins special serum, which is customized based on your skins specific needs.  This means, that your skin becomes more hydrated than it would with a regular facial, and during a time when it needs it the most. That means you can schedule your treatment regardless of any holiday commitments!

The New Coolsculpting Elite at Healthy Solutions Medspa

New Coolsculpting device bucks county

Coolsculpting Elite is the newest Cooslculpting Device

You may have heard of Coolsculpting, but now there is Coolsculpting Elite with even better fat-freezing technology and it is now offered at Healthy Solutions Medspa in Bucks County. 

Coolsculpting Elite is the latest and greatest in body contouring.

What makes Coolsculpting Elite better than the original Coolsculpting device is that it can freeze away fat in half the time.

For those who want to reduce any stubborn fat in areas that are resistant to exercise and a healthy, consistent diet, Coolsculpting is a way to successfully target those areas and shrink fat cells.

What makes Coolsculpting Elite different than the original Coolsculpting device?

The Coolsculpting Elite system is a new, re-designed treatment option that can treat the abdomen, bra line, love handles, double chin, inner and outer thighs, arms and distal thigh/knee areas.

With faster and better results, Coolsculpting Elite targets two treatment areas at the same time.

Previous Coolsculpting machines had only one applicator, allowing only one area to be treated at a time.

The new Coolscultping Elite machines now have two applicators – with two of these machines now available in our office, we can “dualsculpt”, “trisculpt” and “quadsculpt” in one session to treat two, three or four areas at a time.

More machines and more applicators means more results in even less time. 

The new and redesigned Coolsculpting Elite applicator has more surface area for even more fat reduction.

The applicators are up to 18% bigger than the previous applicators.

In addition to a change in the overall shape of the device.

The new C-shaped applicators complement the body’s natural curves for improved fit and comfort during initial tissue draw and features up to an 18% larger cooling area as compared to the previous generation CoolSculpting applicators.

The new applicators successfully cover 97% of the tissue inside the cup, as compared to the old version’s 67%.

This larger contact area means more tissue can be cooled to freeze the fat cells more evenly and consistently, resulting in more significant reduction in less time. More coverage equals better and faster results!

QWO: The New FDA Approved Cellulite Injection

QWO cellulite injections bucks county, pa

Did you know that nine out of 10 adult women suffer from cellulite?

Having cellulite is one of the most frustrating things about being a woman, and there has never been anything we could do about it – until now. 

There is finally a cellulite injection treatment available for women that has been shown to treat and reduce the appearance and severity of cellulite. 

First off, what is cellulite?

It is commonly thought that cellulite is solely caused by fat, and that losing weight is essentially the only solution to reducing its appearance. However, this is not the case. As women age, the skin gets thinner, fat cells get larger, and the fibrous bands that are underneath the skin’s surface get thicker and cause tension — all of which cause that dimpled appearance in certain areas of the body, especially on the butt. 

Women are more likely to have cellulite than men, and it affects those of all shapes, sizes, ages, races and ethnicities. Women are more prone to developing cellulite because they have thinner skin than men, more fatty deposits in the thigh and buttock areas, as well as different orientation of the collagen and fibrous bands. Essentially, women’s bodies are more prone to having the ability of fat lobules to bulge through the areas of the body that have more fatty deposits, most commonly the thigh and buttock areas. 

Introducing the first-ever cellulite injection treatment called QWO

my lobster | phoebe x joey [completed] - Chapter 16: The one with the hair  - Wattpad

For the first time, we are ready to say hello to QWO and goodbye to dimples and cellulite.

Pronounced like “whoa” (insert Joey Tribbiani reference here), QWO is the first treatment of its kind, specifically for adult women. 

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved cellulite injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in women’s buttocks. 

How does QWO work?

QWO is made from enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes are thought to treat dimpled areas by targeting the bands and other structural causes under the skin where the cellulite starts. Essentially, the injection is thought to break down fibrous bands and old collagen particles, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate the growth of new collagen. This results in a smoother surface to the skin, with the possibility of eliminating dimples in the treatment area.

How many QWO treatments will you need?

QWO is a non-surgical cellulite injection administered in a doctor’s office. Patients should have three treatment visits with 21 days in between each QWO cellulite injection treatment. 

How much time is needed for a QWO treatment?

This minimally-invasive procedure is appealing as it is, but to make it even better, the lunch break procedure only takes about 10 minutes or less, and there is no downtime — so no need to take off of work, and in just 2 months you will have improved and smoothed out your cellulite.

Is there downtime with QWO?

Bruising is to be expected and possible redness at the injection site, but nothing is unbearable following the treatment, and you can return to your day as normal.

Women have been eager for a cellulite treatment for a while now, and QWO is an exciting new treatment.

It looks like we can finally stop wasting money on topicals, scrubs and other products that claim to reduce cellulite (when they do nothing in reality).

Just in time for wearing a bathing suit on the beach this summer, we are ready to say “whoa” to QWO!

In this new virtual way of life, we seem to be constantly on screen. 

While you may not have to leave your house to attend work meetings or talk with family or friends anymore, you might be feeling the need to improve your appearance on camera.

Are your forehead wrinkles the only thing you see during your video call?

Are your “11” lines making you look angry?

Ditch the “Dad Bod” with CoolSculpting!

What do Leonardo DiCaprio, Jon Hamm, and Seth Rogen all have in common aside from being famous celebrities?

Well, they all are known for boasting a “Dad Bod.”

What is a “Dad Bod?”

The term, which was coined in March 2015 by a 19-year-old Clemson sophomore named Mackenzie Pearson, describes a male body type that is “softly round.”

Coolsculpting for men

Furthermore, men don’t necessarily have to be a Dad (even though it was built upon that theory) to have this body type.

The term has been used to describe men who work out moderately but also have a beer gut.

While the dad bod is a new body trend that a lot of women (according to Pearson are “crazy about”) we know that some men still prefer having that traditionally masculine or chiseled physique.

Plus, not all men who have been labeled as having a Dad bod indulge on beer and pizza every weekend, and go to the gym just a few times a week.

Many men that work out every day and eat healthy, still have those love handles or that spare tire on their belly that will not go away, and thus make them appear to have the dad bod.

Want to help get rid of your Dad bod?

Consider CoolSculpting!

If eating right and going to the gym are not giving you that trimmed, and sculpted look you desire, one non-surgical and clinically proven procedure we highly suggest you consider is CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is one of the latest and most innovative treatment options that diminishes unwanted fat without injections, incisions, or surgery. It is a great alternative to liposuction.

How does Coolsculpting work?

A controlled cooling is used to selectively freeze stubborn fat cells (in the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and now chin area).

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.

Is Coolsculpting Permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

Aside from helping to remove fat and achieve that more sculpted physique, the procedure takes only one hour, is completely painless, and will not require you take any time off from work!

Even though men with chiseled abs (like David Beckham) and bulging muscles (think Chris Pratt post Guardians of the Galaxy) are no longer the “latest” preferred male physiques, men with huge beer bellies and excessive flab are not in either.

And, if being labeled as having a “Dad bod” is not for you, CoolSculpting can be exactly what you need when diet and exercise is not enough.
