Juvederm Voluma is now FDA approved for chin enhancement

Juvederm Voluma is now FDA approved for chin enhancement

When it comes to improving your profile, there’s good reason to keep your chin up!

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC dermal filler is now U.S. FDA approved for chin enhancement.

It is the first and only filler to receive this approval and is offered at Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano Medspa in Bucks County, PA.

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC was FDA approved in 2013 and was primarily used to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks and mid face.

Since it’s original approval for the mid face, Juvederm Voluma has been used for other areas of the face such as the chin and jawline but those areas were not FDA approved until recently.

Juvederm Voluma For Chin Enhancement:

Today, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is no longer considered an “off label” treatment when it comes to chin contouring and shaping the chin for adults over the age of 21.

The newly approved chin enhancement with Voluma can add volume and help contour the lower face without surgery or downtime.

Juvederm Voluma for Jawline Contouring & Jowl Improvement:

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is the best non-surgical solution for chin and jawline contouring used to improve the overall look and structure of your face.

By filling in the hollow area around the jowls, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC injections soften the appearance of aging skin, strengthens the jawline, and contours the chin.

A jawline or chin filler injectable treatment with Voluma is typically done with a cannula which means less bleeding and bruising, leading to better comfort and a faster recovery.

The injections at Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano Medspa are administered by an experienced Physician or Nurse Injector.

The filler injections to the chin and jawline area with Voluma result in a smooth and natural appearance and are known to last for 12 – 24 month.

Voluma for chin enhancement can improve the profile

A chin enhancement with Juvederm Voluma filler adds definition to the lower facial region without the need for getting a chin implant.

It can also reduce the appearance of a double chin and turn back years to the overall look of your face.

In addition, for those with a longer nose, adding volume to the chin can help make the nose appear smaller and improve the balance of the face and profile.

Voluma chin filler

Why is the chin so important when it comes to your overall beauty?

The chin is a critical feature in the construction of a well-balanced face.

It should match the cheeks and rest of the face for a symmetrical appearance.

Whether it’s genetic or part of our aging process, the soft tissue in our jawline breaks down creating what is known as jowls, or sagging skin below your chin.

The loss of collagen in the lower facial region can cause the chin to look hollow and weak often disrupting the framework of our face.

The results are an imbalanced facial structure, a less desirable profile, and the potential for, now you’re not gonna like this one…a double chin.

Sorry folks, no matter how hard you go at the gym there’s no workout to combat gravity.

Thankfully, we have fillers for that!

5 Trending Medspa Treatments to Do This Fall

The summer sun is warm and relaxing, but too much sunshine can result in dark spots and contribute to aging looking skin. Now that it’s almost fall, you can clear away the sun damaged skin and get a healthy glow with these five trending Medspa treatments:

Hydrafacial: Deep Clean Your Face

Hydrafacial is one of the most popular treatments on the market right now. It offers instantaneous results to patients of every age and skin type. This 30-minute treatment deeply cleanses, exfoliates, and saturates your skin with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow. The Hydrafacial is like a power wash for your face, washing away impurities and dead skin cells while quenching your skin with much-needed nutrients. It’s a combination of a microdermabrasion, chemical peel and facial all in one so you get a lot for your buck! Hydrafacials can also be customized for your skin, giving you the option to add on boosters that minimize the appearance of dark spots, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and signs of aging. As a bonus, red and blue LED light therapy is included as part of the treatment. Blue light therapy targets acne bacteria and red-light therapy promotes healing and reduces the appearance of scars and broken capillaries. The Hydrafacial treatment was named “Best facial” by Newbeauty magazine 2020 and it is a must for your skin care routine.

Clear + Brilliant Laser: Clear Away Sun Damage And Improve Skin Texture

The Clear and Brilliant Laser is one of the most popular minimum downtime laser resurfacing and correcting treatment. Popular among celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore it injures the upper layers of the skin, and replaces the damaged skin with healthier, younger looking skin. It’s a great treatment for to combat the early signs of aging, improve skin tone, texture, reduce sun damage, and minimizes pores. The Clear and Brilliant treatment takes about 20 minutes.

VI Peel: Reveal A New And Fresh Complexion

VI Peels uncover a new layer to your skin, improving the tone, texture, and clarity. This peel treatment is painless and includes a combination of TCA (trichoroacetic acid), Vitamin A (retinoic acid), Salicylic acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C (l-ascrobic acid) that is brushed onto your face, chest, or back, left to set for several minutes, and then gently removed. The VI Peel is safe for all skin types and reduces hyperpigmentation, age spots, wrinkles, and melasma while stimulating the production of collagen. In addition to the regular VI Peel, there is another one specifically that targets acne and reduces blemishes called the VI Purify. Following your treatment, you are sent home with after care post peel products that include a moisturizer, sun screen, and an anti-itch cream as about two or three days later, you will start to see dead skin cells flake off from your face over the course of two to three days. But, that downtime will be worth it once you see your newer and more vibrant skin.

Microneedling: Resurfacing Treatment

Microneedling uses a powerful surgical grade micro pen with tiny needles that creates controlled, superficial micro-injuries which tighten up pores and cause production of collagen and elastin. This resurfacing treatment reduces the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and textural issues making this one of the hottest correcting and anti-aging treatments that is highly sought after. Treatment time is about thirty minutes. Immediately after the treatment, your skin will look red and subside over the course of two to three days. Once this downtime has passed, you will love your newer layer of smoother and younger-looking skin.

Photo Facial: Get Flawless Looking Skin

Photo Facials deliver energy or intense pulsed light (IPL) into your skin using a state-of-the-art device, causing sun spots, age spots, rosacea, and spider veins to fade away. You will notice a clearer complexion immediately after this brief, thirty-minute treatment. The amount of treatments needed depends on your skin’s concerns. If you are trying to treat dark spots, you may need several treatments to get complete clearance but if you are treating facial veins, those can be zapped away instantaneously.

How Does the Clear + Brilliant Laser Facial Compare to Microneedling & Photofacial?

Clear & Brilliant vs. Micronedlingvs. Photofacial Bucks County, PA

A common concern in patients is wanting to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and scars while improving skin tone and texture.

Having younger-looking, radiant skin is now more easily attainable and less painful than ever with today’s technologies.

Some of the most popular skin and facial procedures that don’t require surgery include treatments like Clear + Brilliant, Microneedling and IPL Photofacials.

While all three of these procedures are similar, they also have their differences. So how do you know which treatment you should get?

 

First, you should narrow down your top skin concerns from the broad goal of just attaining “better skin”.

Whether that’s reducing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing pore size, smoothing texture or improving pigmentation or scars, some treatments work better at a specific goal than others.

Here’s what you need to know about how the Clear + Brilliant, Microneedling and Photofacial compare:

Clear + Brilliant

Clear and Brilliant Laser


The Clear & Brilliant treatment is relatively new, yet it’s one of the most popular laser treatments for improving early signs of aging such as fine lines, skin tone, texture, pigment and sun damage while also minimizing pores.

It works by a laser gently rolling across the skin to create microscopic wounds, stimulating collagen production.

The Clear and Brilliant laser treatment has no downtime and works on all skin types.

The Clear + Brilliant can be done on the face, neck, chest or hands. A series of treatments is recommended, and ongoing treatments are needed to maintain results.

Microneedling

Microneedling in Bucks County, PA

 

Similar to Clear + Brilliant, this procedure  works also by stimulating collagen production in the skin, except by using microscopic needles.

It improves the skin’s overall appearance, reduces fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and acne scars.

Microneedling can be done on any part of the body such as face, neck, chest, arms, legs, abdomen and back.

IPL Photofacials

A Photofacial or IPL (intense pulsed light) targets pigment, redness and vessels in the skin without harming any surrounding tissue.

Photofacials are best for treating sun spots, age spots, rosacea, spider veins, capillaries and other similar conditions on the skin.

IPL treatments can be done on the face, chest, back or hands. This treatment works best on lighter skin tones.

So how do the three stack up against each other?

Clear + Brilliant vs .Microneedling vs Photofacial

Clear and Brilliant vs. Microneedling

How the Clear + Brilliant and Microneedling treatments are similar:

1. They both stimulate collagen production with controlled micro injuries
2. They’re both minimally invasive
3. They both reduce the size of pores
4. They both improve early signs of aging
5. They can both correct acne, pigmentation, fine lines, sun damage, skin tone and texture
6. Can do either treatment as often as 3 to 4 weeks
7. Both treatments can be combined as part of a long term skin care correcting treatment plan, spacing them out by at least 4 weeks
8. Both treatments can be performed on the face, neck and chest as well as hands and arms.

How Clear + Brilliant and Microneedling treatments are different:

1. Clear + Brilliant removes top layer of skin
2. Clear + Brilliant has less visible downtime than Microneedling
3. Clear + Brilliant is better for treating signs of sun damage, such as brown spots and freckles
4. Skin is red to pink for 2-3 days following Microneedling treatment
5. Skin is red immediately after treatment but looks back to normal the day after Clear + Brilliant with less visible social downtime
6. Skin feels raw for a few days after Microneedling
7. Skin feels like sandpaper for 3-7 days following Clear + Brilliant treatment

Clear + Brilliant vs. IPL (Photofacial)

How the Clear + Brilliant and the Photofacial are similar:

1. They’re both minimally invasive
2. They both stimulate collagen production
3. They both improve early signs of aging, sun damage, skin tone and texture
4. They both reduce fine lines and minimize pores
5. You need a series of treatments to fully remove brown spots for both procedures
6. Both treatments can be done on the face, chest, hands, and arms
7. Can combine both treatments as part of a skin care correcting treatment plan
8. Skin looks back to normal the day after treatment

How the Clear + Brilliant and the Photofacial are different:

1. Clear + Brilliant is for all skin types
2. IPL is not recommended for darker skin tones
3. IPL improves veins and capillaries on the face
4. IPL does not smooth acne scarring
5. IPL does not remove the top layer of skin

All three treatments for the face can be combined to create a skin care treatment plan for best results.

So if you wanted to correct pigmentation, reduce acne scars and reduce vascular lesions, a series of all three spaced three to four weeks apart maybe your best option to give you clearer, younger and healthier looking skin.

It’s best to schedule a consultation at a reputable Medspa to see which treatment or treatment plan is right for you.

Brotox: Botox for Men

Brotox Botox for Men

Brotox

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures among both men and women.

A common misconception about Botox is that it’s a treatment only for women, but more and more men are taking part in the procedure each year and are enjoying the results from it.

Referred to as “Brotox”, Botox for Men is a popular, nonsurgical treatment used to reduce or eliminate the lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes.

Why are men getting Brotox?

Men get Brotox to soften and remove wrinkles, crowsfeet and 11 lines between the eyes for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

The frown lines or furrowing on the brow area that men develop can sometimes come across as a resting angry or negative emotion that is unintended.

In today’s day and age, men are seeking quick and easy solutions to improve their appearance in order to stay competitive in the workplace, improve personal and professional relationships, or to just appear more desirable in general.

Brotox treatments are used to alleviate this negative-looking temperament in men while also enhancing the facial structure and masculine appearance.

Along with being minimally-invasive nature, the attraction to Brotox is also due to how quickly it is performed and the minimal to no down time afterwards.

Brotox for men infographic

Which areas of the face does Brotox treat?

Men can get treated with Botox on the forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet, or eyebrows.

How does Brotox work?

Brotox injections work by relaxing the muscles by blocking the nerve endings that are responsible for static and dynamic lines or wrinkles involved in facial expression.

The procedure involves a small needle that feels like a pinch at most.

The treatment only takes about 20 minutes, so men can get the treatment on a lunch break and return to work immediately after with little to no discomfort.

The results of the treatment can be seen within two to seven days following the procedure.

Male patients have reported a high satisfaction with their treatment.

It’s effective, predictable, and lasts for three to four months on average.

Botox is also FDA-approved and has been around for over 20 years.

Botox for Men at Healthy Solutions Medspa:

Botox for Men vs. Botox for Women explained:

The difference in Botox between men and women is essentially the dosing, facial structure and overall desired appearance.

Men typically require a higher dosage due to a higher muscle mass compared to women.

Depending on what the patient is looking for, Botox can be used for both masculine- and feminine-looking appearances, which is why men and women can enjoy and benefit from the effects no matter how subtle they are.

New Year Beauty Resolution: Clear + Beautiful Skin

New Year Beauty Resolution: Clear + Beautiful Skin

The new year has officially started, and that means new resolutions!

One of the most common goals we’ve already seen for 2020 is clear, youthful and radiant skin.

There have been countless different beauty and skincare trends in the last decade, and we should definitely be leaving some of them there.

From charcoal and red-light masks to CBD and elaborate 15-step routines, we’ve learned that not everything will work on everyone’s skin (or anybody’s for that matter), and a lot of it can be a waste of money and energy.

New Year Resolution Clear & Beautiful Skin

That being said, it’s time to leave all of that in 2019.

It’s a new year, and we’re basically living in the future: technology changes everything in our lives, no less our skincare.

So, isn’t it about time we have a solution for our beauty goals that doesn’t require an endless period of trial-and-error with skincare products, needles or surgery?

2020 has entered the chat, and she says yes!

One of the most innovative procedures to come our way is called Clear + Brilliant.

Essentially, the treatment improves the signs and effects that time and environment can have on your skin, while also preventing visible signs of aging.

Let’s face it: our skin changes over time. Fine lines, enlarged pores and uneven tone and texture can be inevitable, especially as we age.

Even if you take good care of your skin with a consistent, preventative routine with top-notch products, unfortunately nobody can look like they’re in their 20s forever.

Luckily, we’ve discovered and proven new ways to fix what we don’t like and also prevent them from coming.

Clear + Brilliant could be the answer to your New Year’s resolution, but you probably have some questions:

What is Clear + Brilliant and what does it do?

The Clear + Brilliant treatment is a gentle laser procedure that helps to better overall complexion by improving skin tone, texture, uneven pigmentation and the appearance of fine lines and pores, while also treating and preventing signs of aging.

Using fractional laser technology, the treatment works by targeting the upper layers of the skin and replacing damaged cells with healthy tissue.

This essentially triggers the skin’s natural healing process, leaving you with younger looking, radiant skin.

The procedure does not require any surgery or injections, and is 100% non-invasive.

Clear and Brilliant Laser

What should I expect?

A typical Clear + Brilliant treatment begins with a consultation with a licensed professional to establish that the treatment is right for you and your skin concerns.

Before the treatment, your licensed professional may apply a numbing cream to your face to eliminate any possibility of discomfort.

The procedure then consists of guiding a laser hand piece across the skin and target areas, and takes about 20-30 minutes from start to finish.

You will see both immediate and progressive results over the course of a week or two.

Is Clear + Brilliant painful?

The treatment is non-invasive, quick and gentle. Patients have reported that the procedure is minimally painful, with a slightly hot and/or prickly feeling that is easily alleviated by applying ice to the skin.

At most, minor swelling or redness may occur for a few hours following the treatment.

How much does Clear + Brilliant laser treatment cost?

The average cost of a single Clear + Brilliant treatment is around $450, but can vary depending on location, provider and prior state of your skin.

Is Clear + Brilliant worth it?

A high majority of patients say that Clear + Brilliant is worth it due to the results, minimal pain, quickness and downtime of the procedure as compared to other laser treatments.

Patients report that after just one treatment they noticed softer, younger looking skin, improved tone and a radiant glow, and no need to take time off from work.

Clear + Brilliant Before and After:

clear and brilliant before and after

How often should I get the Clear + Brilliant treatment?

Results can most likely be seen after just one session, however 4-6 treatments are recommended in order to notice visible improvements and achieve the look that you want. It is also recommended to separate each treatment by a month for best results, depending on your skin condition and care regimen.

Can I exercise after my Clear + Brilliant treatment?

A light walk is OK following treatment; however, it would be best to avoid strenuous exercise as is it recommended to avoid perspiring and sweating for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Additionally, you should avoid any sun exposure due to heightened sensitivity.

What is the downtime for Clear + Brilliant?

There is little to no downtime for the Clear + Brilliant laser treatment.

Patients are able to get the procedure while on lunch break on a work day and return back looking and feeling normal.

At most, some slight redness or heat may occur on the face immediately after the procedure, but can be alleviated with ice or a cold pack.

7 Things To Know About Under Eye Filler

7 Things to Know About Under Eye Filler

Let’s face it: you’re tired of always looking tired.

No matter how much sleep you get at night, it seems like those dark circles will never go away.

You’ve tried countless creams, serums and concealers and none of them ever do what they say they will.

 

As we age, the area under our eyes (also known as the tear trough) loses volume which causes hollows, wrinkles, bags and dark under eye circles.

Dermal fillers for the under eye are used to restore volume, fill in wrinkles, and decrease the appearance of dark circles for more youthful looking eyes. These dermal fillers can also create a smoother facial contour in the areas under the eyes that have a hollow appearance.

 

If you lack volume under the eyes and you’re tired of spending money on eye products that don’t work, then under eye fillers may be the solution for you — but before you book your appointment, here are seven things you should know about the under eye filler treatment:

You’ll see the results right away

You will notice a difference in your under eye area immediately after your treatment. Patients experience instant satisfaction as any problem areas under the eyes will be improved with a natural-looking result.

Under Eye Filler Treatment Is Not Permanent

The results from the under eye filler treatment can last around 1-2 years, but ultimately the absorption varies with each individual. You can always get them touched up in the future as well.

Tear Trough Filler Treatments Are Off-Label

Although the dermal fillers aren’t FDA approved for treatments under the eyes, that doesn’t mean that it’s unsafe.

As other areas of the face have been approved for filler treatments (such as the lips and cheeks), the FDA studies have just not yet been conducted for the under eye area.

Under eye filler treatments are done in practice all over the world.

It is important to choose an experienced, certified medical professional to perform the tear trough filler procedure for optimal results.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Are Preferred

Juvederm and Restylane are common types of hyaluronic acid fillers used for the treatment of under eye hollowness.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are most popularly used because they look the most natural.

Under eye treatments with Juvderm or Restylane can be reversed in the case you don’t like the results or want to adjust the treatment.

Reversal can be done by using Hyaluronidase, an enzyme naturally found in the body, which essentially dissolves the filler.

Pain Is Minimal

The treatment area will be numbed, and the pain will likely be mild to moderate. Most patients would describe the experience as just a small pinch.

There’s Very Little Downtime

There’s a chance that you may experience some slight bruising afterwards, but it’s nothing you can’t cover up with some concealer in the meantime.

You should try to avoid drinking alcohol or taking any blood thinners at least a few days before your treatment, as this may cause some bruising.

There’s also no need to take off work or revolve your schedule around the appointment either, as it is a very quick procedure and you can go about your day afterwards.

The Cost Of Under Eye Filler Treatments

Depending on your facial contours, how much volume has been lost under your eyes and how many syringes of filler you’ll need, the treatment can cost anywhere from $800 to over $2,000.

Schedule a consultation to find out what treatment plan is recommended for you and what that will cost.

 

Recipients of the treatment instantly notice a difference in their under eyes and are pleased with the results. Stop breaking the bank on countless skincare and makeup products that don’t work, and take the leap into a longer-lasting, natural-looking approach to brighter, more youthful eyes.

Reverse Sun Damaged Skin with These 4 Med Spa Treatments

Bucks County Med Spa

You’ve had your fun in the sun, and now your skin is paying for it.

Those fabulous afternoons lounging poolside with a mojito in hand, and long weekends at the beach are par for the course when it comes to enjoying summer. Unfortunately, it can wreak havoc on your skin.

Regardless of the amount of sunscreen you apply to your skin or how often you sport that Riviera-style beach hat, the sun makes its way through to your precious skin – leaving sunspots, blotches, and wrinkles! But there’s no need to wallow in a world of regret. Your time spent sinning in the sun can be fixed!

Here are 4 Med Spa treatments to help you reverse sun damage:

Microneedling:

Hold up! Did someone say needle? We did. But they are incy wincy, tiny little needles. We’re talking microscopic – as Taylor Swift says, “You need to calm down!”

Microneedling is a method used to rejuvenate the skin by generating collagen and skin tissue. The minimally invasive procedure involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to brush over the skin to create controlled “micro-injuries.” The skin’s natural healing process prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild. The increased collagen can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and even out your skin tone – leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin. Another bonus: it also lessens the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks, and sun damage.

Patients may experience a few days of redness following treatment, but ultimately settle into silky-soft skin that glows!

VI Peel: It’s time to turn over a new leaf! VI Peel is a medical-grade chemical peel that offers dramatic results with no preparation and minimal downtime. The gentle, pain-free treatment helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles, reverse sun damage, reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and scarring while improving the overall quality, tone and texture of your skin.

The VI Peel at Healthy Solutions MedSpa includes a specifically formulated post peel kit which is essential for your treatment’s success, ensuring optimal and lasting results. VI Peel’s blend of powerful ingredients is suitable for all skin types, including darker skin tones. It is a quick treatment designed to achieve more effective results.

Patients can expect to peel for 2-3 days before revealing a new layer of skin that appears flawless and youthful.

Photofacial:

Also called an IPL (intense pulse light). It’s not a Rave but seeing how amazing your skin looks over the next week may prompt you to break out in a celebratory dance. Before you do, keep in mind this is not an immediate treatment, and depending on how much sun damage you have, multiple treatments may be needed.

Some patients opt for a Photofacial instead of a chemical peel because there is less visible downtime and no peeling! After a Photofacial, your face will appear pink or red. If you have dark spots, they will appear darker- this can last for a few weeks but will lessen with each day. The Photofacial is also great to spot treat sun damage as the device can target specific sunspots more aggressively during treatment.

The Photofacial, also called an IPL (intense pulse light) is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin…unce unce unce baby! This revolutionary facial treatment uses a broad-spectrum light source called flashlight technology. The intense pulsed light warms up the skin and uses heat to activate the body’s natural healing process.

You can use IPL on other parts of the body, not just on your face. Patients often get treatment to correct sun damage on areas such as chest, back, or hands. This type of light therapy is also used to treat age spots, broken blood vessels on your face, and rosacea.

Hydrafacial:
When it comes to gorgeous skin, some of us…want it now! The Hydrafacial offers instantaneous results with absolutely no downtime. Hydrafacial is a hydradermabrasion treatment that cleanses the skin, exfoliates dead cells, extracts dirt and bacteria, hydrates, and protects the skin with antioxidants in one simple 30-minute treatment. As if it wasn’t already perfect, a Hydrafacial is an excellent microdermabrasion treatment for oily skin, acne, sun damage, and to treat wrinkles and fine lines.

Plus, by adding specific Boosters to the hydrafacial, you can effectively target problem areas. BRITENOL BOOST Britenol™ is specially formulated to correct dark spots and sun-damaged areas. Britenol™ is clinically proven to leave skin glowing with a more even complexion. Key ingredients: Alpha-Arbutin is derived from bearberry extract to brighten the appearance of dark spots. Vitamin C exhibits antioxidant properties and gives skin added brightness.

Whatever your skin needs are you can’t go wrong with any of the mentioned treatments. Call (267) 388-4692 today to schedule a consultation with our Aesthetician or to schedule an appointment.

As September comes to an end, our memories of summer begin to fade, hopefully, so will the sun damage to our skin. Here’s to heading into Autumn with gorgeous, glowing skin – and endless pumpkin spice lattes!
