The Scientific Explanation of Cryolipolysis: Unveiling How CoolSculpting Eliminates Fat

Healthy Solutions Medspa

Are you curious about the scientific principles that drive CoolSculpting, the revolutionary fat-freezing treatment offered at Health Solutions Med Spa? In this comprehensive guide, we’ll delve into the science behind cryolipolysis and explore how CoolSculpting effectively targets and eliminates stubborn fat cells to sculpt your body.

Understanding Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis, also known as fat freezing, is a non-invasive body contouring technique that has gained popularity for its ability to reduce localized fat deposits without surgery. The process involves exposing fat cells to controlled cooling, which causes them to undergo apoptosis, or cell death while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. Let’s explore the key components of cryolipolysis and how they contribute to the success of CoolSculpting treatments.

The CoolSculpting Process

  • Consultation and Assessment: Your CoolSculpting journey commences with a comprehensive consultation at Health Solutions Medspa. Here, our highly skilled technicians conduct a thorough assessment of your unique body composition and engage in a detailed discussion about your aesthetic aspirations. This personalized approach ensures that your CoolSculpting treatment plan is meticulously tailored to address your specific needs and desired outcomes.
  • Targeting Fat Cells: Once your bespoke treatment plan has been meticulously crafted, the CoolSculpting procedure commences. A specialized applicator, precisely selected to match your treatment area, is strategically positioned in the targeted region. This applicator initiates a gentle vacuum effect, drawing the adipose tissue closer to the surface for optimal treatment efficacy.
  • Cooling the Fat Cells: As the applicator snugly adheres to the treatment area, it begins to administer precisely controlled cooling to the underlying fat cells. This cooling process is meticulously calibrated to reach a temperature that induces a state of controlled frostbite within the targeted fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. Through this specialized technique, known as cryolipolysis, the fat cells are subjected to a cascade of molecular changes, ultimately leading to their demise.
  • Apoptosis of Fat Cells: In the ensuing weeks following the CoolSculpting procedure, the body’s innate metabolic processes spring into action. Recognizing the damaged fat cells as unwanted intruders, the body initiates a natural response mechanism, triggering a process known as apoptosis. During apoptosis, the damaged fat cells undergo programmed cell death, effectively dismantling them at a cellular level. Over time, the body systematically eliminates these defunct fat cells, resulting in a gradual reduction in the volume of fat within the treated area. Remarkably, this transformative process occurs without any disruption to the surrounding tissues, ensuring a seamless and comfortable recovery experience for the patient.

Benefits of Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis offers several advantages over traditional fat reduction methods, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking a non-invasive solution to stubborn fat deposits. Some key benefits of cryolipolysis include:

  • Non-Invasive Procedure: Unlike invasive surgical procedures, cryolipolysis does not require any incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. This makes it a safe and convenient option for fat reduction, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.
  • Precise Targeting of Fat: CoolSculpting, utilizing cryolipolysis technology, allows for precise targeting of specific areas of the body. Whether it’s stubborn fat on the abdomen, thighs, flanks, or other regions, CoolSculpting enables customized treatment plans tailored to individual body contours, ensuring optimal results.
  • Minimal Discomfort: One of the notable advantages of cryolipolysis is the minimal discomfort experienced by most patients during and after the CoolSculpting procedure. Unlike invasive surgeries that may involve significant pain and discomfort, CoolSculpting typically causes only mild sensations of cold and pressure, with no need for pain medication or recovery time.
  • Natural-Looking, Long-Lasting Results: Cryolipolysis facilitates the gradual elimination of fat cells from the body, resulting in natural-looking, long-lasting results that seamlessly blend with your body’s contours. Over time, as the treated fat cells are metabolized and eliminated by the body’s natural processes, patients can enjoy a slimmer, more sculpted appearance without the risk of unnatural bulges or irregularities.
  • FDA-Approved Treatment: CoolSculpting, the leading cryolipolysis technology, has received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the reduction of fat in various areas of the body. This FDA approval underscores the safety and effectiveness of CoolSculpting as a trusted fat-reduction treatment, providing patients with assurance and peace of mind.

Are you a laser hair removal newbie? No problem, we’ve got you covered! We are answering the most frequently asked questions asked by women we see about laser hair removal to make sure you are comfortable when scheduling your appointment!

Why Do Women Love Laser Hair Removal?

Women choose laser hair removal over many other options like shaving and waxing for various reasons. Some of the popular reasons why women choose laser hair removal include:

1. Convenience: This option is a semi-permanent solution compared to waxing or shaving.

2. Smooth Skin: The appreciation for your skin after a nice laser hair removal session is one that definitely needs to be mentioned! Your skin is not only soft, but the regrowth of hair is much finer.

3. Time: No one likes to spend their time shaving or waxing, especially larger surface areas of the body. Laser hair removal can save you time in the long run compared to daily or weekly hair removal routines.

4. Reduced Ingrown Hairs: Let’s be honest… no one likes ingrown hairs. They’re painful and they’re ugly! Unlike shaving or waxing, laser hair removal can help minimize ingrown hairs. 

5. Cosmetic Preferences: Some individuals prefer aesthetics of hair-free areas on the body.

6. Self-Confidence: It’s easy to say that we all want to be the most confident versions of ourselves. Some women may choose laser hair removal knowing that soon the hair they grow back will be minimal.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works in several steps.

First, the laser emits a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the melanin (Aka pigment) in the hair follicles. This gives the hair on our bodies it’s color. 

Next, the absorbed light energy is then converted into heat. Heat is able to damage the bulb and the bulge of the hair follicles and doesn’t harm any surrounding skin.

The heat disrupts the hair follicle’s ability to regrow hair. Depending on the situation and how many treatments you receive, this leads to a reduction of the hair growth.

Laser hair removal systems like the ones we have in both of our offices are designed to target the pigment or melanin in the hair while not harming any skin surrounding it. Certain wavelengths of light are absorbed predominately by the hair, allowing no damage to the skin. 

Who is a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

There are a few factors that go into play when deciding who is a candidate for laser hair removal. 

Normally, it is suitable for many individuals, but there are some characteristics that may make you unable.

1. Hair and Skin Color: If you have dark hair and light skin, you’re in. 

This is because lasers target the melanin in the hair, and the greater the contrast of the hair and skin color, the more effective treatment will be. 

2. Hair Thickness: In addition to hair being dark, having more coarse hair is another factor in getting great results. 

3. Health Status: Certain medical conditions as well as medications may contradict laser hair removal treatments. Let your laser hair removal technician know if you are on any medications or have any medical conditions. 

4. Age: Most clients need to have reached puberty and have a stable hair growth for the treatment to be effective and most facilities require the patient to be at least 16 years old and have a signed parental consent if younger than 18 years old. 

5. No Sun Exposure: This goes for any treatment using a laser, but patients should steer clear of the sun or tanning beds before and after treatment. Sun exposure can increase the risk of complications and reduce effectiveness of the treatment.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

People have different feelings toward laser hair removal, depending on the machine used, their pain tolerance, if any topical anesthetics are applied, if cooling devices are used, and how long the session is. 

A lot of patients describe the feeling to be similar to a rubber band snapping on the skin, but most women find laser hair removal tolerable. 

Does Laser Hair Removal Remove Hair Permanently?

Laser hair removal is often described as a semi-permanent reduction of hair. While the procedure can significantly reduce the amount of hair in treated areas and greatly reduce the need to shave, it may not eliminate hair growth entirely for everyone permanently. Some people may need to do a yearly touch up of laser hair removal on certain areas of hair regrowth. 

The need to do laser hair removal touch ups once in a while after a series of laser hair removal treatments can depend on genetic factors, hormonal factors, and how the hair regrows.

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

The duration of results from laser hair removal can vary among individuals, and factors such as hair color, skin type, and hormonal changes can influence the longevity of the effects. While laser hair removal is often described as providing a semi-permanent reduction in hair growth, the exact duration of the results can differ.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe for Women?

Laser hair removal is generally considered safe for women when performed by qualified and experienced laser technician using an appropriate laser device and protocols. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and considerations.

What are the Popular Areas for Laser Hair Removal for Women?

Some of the more popular areas for laser hair removal for women include the bikini, underarms, upper lip and chin, legs, arms, and face. 

How Long is a Typical Laser Hair Removal Treatment for Women?

The duration of a laser hair removal session can vary depending on the size of the treatment area, the density of hair, and the specific technology or equipment used.

However, here are some typical guidelines for approximately how much time each laser hair removal session takes for each area:

Why Do I Need 6 Treatments of Laser Hair Removal for Maximum Results?

The number of laser hair removal sessions needed for optimal results can vary among individuals and depends on factors such as hair color, skin type, and the specific area being treated. While six sessions are commonly recommended as a starting point, the exact number required may be more or less based on individual characteristics.

What are the Phases of the Hair Growth Cycle and Laser Hair Removal?

laser hair removal
The hair growth cycle consists of three main phases, and each hair follicle goes through these phases independently. The three phases of the hair growth cycle are:
  1. Anagen Phase (Active Growth):

    • This is the active phase of hair growth.
    • During the anagen phase, cells in the hair follicle divide rapidly, and the hair shaft is pushed up toward the surface of the skin.
    • The duration of the anagen phase varies depending on the body location. Scalp hair, for example, has a much longer anagen phase than body or facial hair.
  2. Catagen Phase (Transition):

    • The catagen phase is a transitional phase between the active growth and resting phases.
    • It is a relatively short phase that lasts for a few weeks.
    • During catagen, the hair follicle shrinks, and the hair shaft is separated from the dermal papilla (the structure that nourishes the hair).
  3. Telogen Phase (Resting):

    • The telogen phase is a resting phase during which the hair is not actively growing.
    • The hair follicle is at rest, and the old hair is eventually pushed out by a new hair during the next anagen phase.
    • A percentage of hair follicles are in the telogen phase at any given time.
    • The duration of the telogen phase is variable, and it can last several weeks to months.

Multiple laser hair removal sessions are often recommended to target a higher percentage of hair follicles during their active growth phases over time.

Can You See Results After 1 Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

It is possible to see some results after one laser hair removal treatment, but the extent of visible changes varies among individuals. After the initial session, individuals may notice hair reduction, delayed regrowth, and smoother skin. Individual responses to laser hair removal can vary, and some people may experience more noticeable results after the first session than others. But, even though individuals may see some improvement and reduction of hair growth after one session, a series of six treatments spaced at least four to six weeks apart are still recommended for best results.

The Ultimate Guide to Microneedling 2024

Microneedling 2024

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy is a medical aesthetic procedure that uses very small needles to repeatedly penetrate layers of the skin in order to create a wound healing cascade.

This results in microscopic holes or microchannels in the dermis.

This treatment improves the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tone and texture.

History of Microneedling:

In the 1950’s mesotherapy was discovered by Dr. Michel Pistor. He used a meso device with one needle.

He came up with the concept that pricking the skin would promote collagen formation.

Then in 1995, subcision came around which was a new method of treating depressed scars and wrinkles.

Following subcision, came needle dermabrasion in 1997.

This treatment involved using a tattoo pistol to treat scars.

Patients saw improvement in scar texture, appearance and color, however this treatment was very time and labor intensive due to use of only one needle.

In 1998, Dr. Des Fernandes from South Africa developed a small needling stamping device and presented his study on needling at a conference in San Francisco.

Dr. Des Fernandes microneedling stamp

By the year 2000, the first medical Microneedling device called the Dermaroller was invented by Horst Liebl.

This device consisted of many fine needles on a drum shaped roller.

By the mid-2000’s, Microneedling grew popular in medical offices, medspas, and with patients.

In 2018, the SkinPen Microneedling device was FDA cleared to improve the appearance of acne scars of adults 22 years of age and older.

It was designed for use by licensed healthcare practitioners or individuals directed by practitioners.

The science behind the Microneedling treatment

The skin goes through three phases of wound healing.

First the skin is injured which causes inflammation and releases growth factors.

Then the tissue goes into the proliferation phase where the fibroblasts release growth factors, glycoproteins, and collagen causing the epidermal cells to migrate to the wound.

Then tissue and capillaries form, and fibroblasts continue to proliferate.

In this phase, the dermal thickness increases.

In the last phase of microneedling wound healing, the tissue is remodeled which causes a skin tightening effect by promoting fresh new collagen.

Complete tissue remodeling can take place from 3 weeks to 1 year.

Most remodeling completes after 6 months.

A study by Fernandes, D. Oral showed 400% more collagen was produced after 6 months following a Microneedling treatment.

Microneedling for Wrinkles & Acne Scars

As we age, our skin thins and our epidermal layer of skin thickness decreases.

One study showed that the thickness of collagen in a 2 year old dermis is about 1.37 um vs. the thickness of collagen in a 90 year old has an average of .52 um.

Healthy Solutions Medspa

 

Age-related dermal collagen changes during development, maturation and ageing – a morphometric and comparative study. V. Morcas Garcec, et. Al pg. 101.

The collagen loss surrounding the scar creates a cave like and shadowing appearance

When combining the effects of aging skin with uneven acne scars, the result is a more prominent appearance of acne scars.

With Microneedling, the wound healing process creates collagen and increases the thickness of the dermis to create a more a youthful appearance as well as helps to repair acne scars.

To reduce the appearance of acne scars in adults and improve the appearance of surrounding skin, you must treat both effectively.

Frequently Asked Treatment Questions:

Microneedling near me SkinPen

What is the best and safest medical grade Microneedling device?

The SkinPen is the only FDA cleared and legally marketed automated, non-surgical Microneedling device on the market. It is proven safe and effective to treat and improve the appearance of acne scars in adults aged 22 and older.

What are some side effects of Microneedling?

Dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness and burning are some of the side effects that some patients have seen last from 1 to 6 days post Microneedling.

How will my skin look after Microneedling?

Your skin may have an appearance of a mild sunburn to moderate sunburn.

What are the contraindications for Microneedling or reason why someone should not receive a Microneedling treatment?

Patients who have the following should not receive Microneedling:
– Have active skin cancer in the treatment area
– Have open wounds, sore, or irritated skin in the treatment area
– Have an allergy to stainless steel or anesthetic
– Have a hemorrhagic bleeding disorder or a hemostatic bleeding dysfunction.
– Are pregnant or nursing
– Are currently taking drugs with ingredients of isotretinoin such as Accutane.

What areas can not be Microneedled?

Microneedling should not be done around the orbital rim such as the eye lids.

How should I prepare for a Microneedling treatment?

Avoid excessive sun exposure. No sunburn.
Discontinue to use topical retinoids 24 hours prior to Microneedling.
Avoid treatment if you have active breakouts or open lesions.
Allow 24 hours after auto immune therapy.
Wait at least 6 months before oral isotretinoin use.

What to avoid after Microneedling?

You should avoid sweaty exercise and sun exposure 72 hours post your Microneedling treatment.
In addition, you should avoid other facial treatments for a month after Microneedling.

Which products should I use post Microneedling?

You should use Vitamin C as it is a great antioxidant and helps with rebuilding collagen. Vitamin A is also recommended to use after Microneedling as it promotes cell turnover, decreases collagen degradation, and helps to thicken the dermal layer. Also, copper with peptides as it plays a role in the production of collagen and elastin that the body is not able to produce by itself.
Other products that would benefit are Magnesium, as it is a great atioxidant, Zinc because it helps to reduce inflammation and promotes collagen production, and Ginger Extact because it prevents further damage to the skin caused by UV exposure.

Why are good skin care products so important to use after Microneedling?

They can help reduce inflammation, provide moisture, aid in wound healing, improve and maintain aesthetic procedure outcomes, and reduce the risk of potential complications.

Which products or ingredients should I avoid using after Microneedling?

Ingredients known to increase inflammation should be avoided as well as those that hinder the skin’s ability to repair and remodel.
These include:
– Formaldehyde releasing preservatives
– Silicone/Methicone/Dimethicone
– Dyes
– Fragrances
– Petroleum
– Glycol
– Sulphates
– Mineral Oil
– Parabens
– Citrus derived preservatives
It is best to follow the post treatment instructions and products recommended to you by your medical aesthetic provider.

What is the difference between a Dermaroller and a Microneedling pen?

A Dermaroller is an over the counter needling device and Microneedling pen is a medical aesthetic device only allowed to be used in medical aesthetic practices.

What is better Dermarolling or Microneedling?

Mechanical microneedling with an FDA cleared Microneedling device such as the SkinPen produces more microchannels with one pass than created by a Dermaroller with many passes.

How long does it take for the micro-channels created during Microneedling to close after treatment?

One study showed that microchannels created during Microneedling close after 24 hours.

How deep into the skin does Microneedling penetrate?

The SkinPen microneedling device is able to go up to 2.5 mm which is the highest depth of penetration that is proven safe for patients.

Botox and Dermal Fillers are often used together to rejuvenate the face. It’s best to get a consultation to see if Botox, Fillers or both are right for you.

Botox Daxxify Jeaveau Dysport Xeomin Bucks County Medspa

Botox vs. Dysport vs. Xeomin vs. Jeuveau vs. Daxxify

Which Botox is the best?

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

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.

What is the difference between Botox and Daxxify?

The main difference between the treatments is how long the treatment lasts. Daxxify results last longer than Botox, typically 2 times longer than Botox. The price of Daxxify also costs more than Botox. 

Which neurotoxin is right for you?

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

Get Your Summer Body With The Coolsculpting Treatment

Summer is coming and everyone wants to look and feel their best. But getting swimsuit ready can be a struggle especially during times like these.

Diet and exercise are great but what about the stubborn fat that never seems to disappear regardless of how hard you try?

Some people have tried liposuction but found it can leave bruises or scars.

Our Medspa in Bucks County, PA offers the Coolsculpting treatment and patients love the results they get without the risks of getting an invasive procedure.  

It’s no surprise that the Coolsculpting treatment is the #1 non surgical fat reduction treatment in the world.

Frequently Asked Coolsculpting Treatment Questions:

What is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment for fat reduction. It uses a scientifically proven mechanism, known as cryolipolysis to freeze away and destroy fat cells without harming the skin or surrounding tissue. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, resulting in 20%-25% reduction of fat in a treated area. This treatment is a safe and effective way to reduce excess fat on the abdomen, love handles, back fat, bra fat, chest, thighs, arms, and double chin. Results are long-term and fat cells treated are permanently destroyed.

Is Coolsculpting painful?

Most people find Coolsculpting to be very comfortable. During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, intense cold, and tingling at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb a few minutes into the treatment.

When is the best time of the year to get the Coolsculpting treatment?

Before summer is the perfect time to have a Coolsculpting treatment because it will give you more confidence in a swimsuit. However, cool sculpting can be done any time of the year.
coolsculpting

What areas of the body can be treated with Coolsculpting?

The Coolsculpting Elite treatment can reduce 20-25% of fat from the belly, love handles, thighs, arms, double chin, bra fat, back fat and more…

How long is a Coolsculpting treatment?

It depends on the area of the body you are treating. Most Coolsculpting treatments take 35 minutes. Coolsculpting to freeze away the double chin is 45 minutes. Treating multiple areas of the body can take a few hours to treat. During this time, most people watch TV or take a nap while getting rid of their stubborn fat.

Is Coolsculpting just for women?

Coolsculpting is a popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment for both men and women. Men love getting this quick no-downtime treatment.

Coolsculpting for Men in Bucks County, PA

How does Coolsculpting compare to Liposuction?

Coolsculpting is a non-invasive alternative to Liposuction. There is no downtime, meaning you can go to work or the gym immediately following the treatment.
At our Medspa, we offer WiFi and Netflix available to our patients, which makes it easy to accomplish work or catch up on your favorite Netflix series during the treatment.
Coolsculpting is non-surgical, and therefore leaves no scarring, swelling or bruising, so no one will even know you had anything done.
You can even put a bathing suit on right away following a Coolsculpting treatment, where as post liposuction patients are required to wear compression garments and have to cover their scars if they will be in the sun. Another benefit is that it is done in a comfortable and private medical office as opposed to a very crowded hospital.


In addition, liposuction can be dangerous and there are many risks of complications with anesthesia, bleeding, and infection, which is why cool sculpting is a much safer option.

How many treatments of Coolsculpting will I need?

While you will see up to a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area after a single treatment, it depends on the person and the area being treated. For some, one Coolsculpting treatment is enough to get the best results. While others may need two or three treatments to reach their desired results.
We offer free consultations at our office to customize your treatment plan and determine if additional treatments are necessary to reach your desired outcome.

Can I work out after the Coolsculpting treatment?

Yes. You can resume your normal day to day activities right after treatment and can exercise.

How to choose the right Coolsculpting treatment center?

Is SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® a Filler?

Healthy Solutions Medspa

As advancements in aesthetic medicine continue to evolve, it’s essential to understand the latest treatments and technologies. JUVÉDERM® is a prominent name in the world of aesthetic enhancements, often associated with skin rejuvenation. This article aims to demystify whether SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a filler, exploring this innovative treatment’s science, properties, and uses.

Defining SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM®

What is SKINVIVE™?

SKINVIVE™ is a hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable indicated to improve cheek skin smoothness. It is designed to keep your skin hydrated, healthy, and glowing.

Understanding Dermal Fillers

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that address various concerns related to skin aging and volume loss. These injectable substances, including hyaluronic acid, collagen, and calcium hydroxylapatite, are strategically injected into targeted areas to achieve desired results.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be broadly categorized into different types based on their composition:

1. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers, like SKINVIVE™, are the most common type. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, making these fillers biocompatible and readily accepted by the skin.

2. Collagen Fillers

Collagen fillers are made from collagen, a protein found in the skin. They help restore the skin’s elasticity and suppleness.

3. Synthetic Fillers

Synthetic fillers are made of lab-made substances and provide long-lasting results. Subtypes include polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and calcium hydroxylapatite.

4. Autologous Fillers

Autologous fillers use substances from the patient’s body, such as fat or platelet-rich plasma (PRP). These are harvested and purified before injection.

Is SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® a Dermal Filler?

Not exactly. SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a microdroplet injectable treatment and does not add volume like other dermal fillers. Its primary purpose is to help the skin retain its natural moisture and softness, improving the skin smoothness of the cheeks.

How SKINVIVE™ Works

SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a modified hyaluronic acid gel that’s injected as intradermal microdroplets below the skin’s surface, increasing hydration to improve cheek smoothness.

In conclusion, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable treatment to smooth cheeks and achieve glowing and healthy-looking skin. It is not an injectable dermal filler treatment that adds volume. It is a hydration and skin quality improvement treatment.

Understanding the composition and mechanism of action of SKINVIVE™ allows individuals to make informed decisions regarding their aesthetic goals. For personalized insights and comprehensive consultation on SKINVIVE™ treatments, contact us at Healthy Solutions Medspa, where we prioritize your unique beauty needs and guide you toward achieving your desired look. Unveil the potential of your skin with SKINVIVE™.

Allergan Aesthetics just released the new FDA approved SKINVIVE, the first and only Hyaluronic Acid face injectable for glowing skin and Healthy Solutions Medspa is excited to offer it to our patients.

  • Hydration of the skin
  • Smoothing of the skin

  • Improvement in skin texture

So What’s The Hype?

The Hyaluronic Acid based injectable is said to create smoothness in the skin, especially the cheek area.  There is no other injectable quite like this, providing the amazing outcome like this. 

How Long Does SKINVIVE Last?

SKINVIVE by JUVÉDERM® is said to last about six months, providing the glowy and smooth skin. 

Is There Any Downtime After SKINVIVE?

Just like any injectable treatment by JUVÉDERM®, there is little to no downtime involved with getting SKINVIVE treatments, which is super important to our patients.  Similarly to all other injectables we offer at Healthy Solutions Medspa, we would recommend not working out for 24 hours post treatment, keeping the injected areas clean and try not to wear any makeup for 24 hours. 

Who Should Receive SKINVIVE Injectables?

The awesome part is that everyone is a candidate for this hyaluronic acid injectable, no matter the skin type you are.  Anyone that wants to improve the texture of their skin, or wanting a hydration boost, would be a great candidate.

Stubborn Acne? Try a Vi Peel!

Healthy Solutions Medspa

If you are having a hard time with your skin concerning acne, pigmentation, texture, and tone, a VI Peel may be a great fit for you!

The VI Purify chemical peel is a type of chemical peel used to improve the appearance of the breakouts and acne skin that we offer at our premier medspa in Bucks County, PA.

What are the benefits with a VI Peel for acne?

  • Increases cellular and clears pores
  • Eliminates acne bacteria
  • Reduces redness and inflammation 

What ingredients are in the VI Purify Peel?

The VI Purify Peel uses a blend of different acids, including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), Kojic acid, salicylic acid, retinoic acid, phenol, hydrocortisone and vitamin C. This combination of acids helps to exfoliate the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells, unclogging pores, and promoting cell turnover.

Why is the Vi Purify Peel an effective treatment for acne prone skin?

The salicylic acid in the VI Purify chemical peel is particularly effective for treating acne-prone skin. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that can penetrate the oil in your pores, helping to break down and remove the debris that can contribute to acne formation. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and swelling associated with acne.

In addition, the Vi Peel purify exfoliates the top layer of the skin and encourages the growth of new, healthier skin cells. This can help reduce the appearance of acne scars and promote a smoother texture.

What is the downtime with a Vi Purify chemical peel?

The VI Peel is considered a medium-depth peel, so there can be up to 7 days of downtime. Immediately after the peel, your skin may appear red and feel slightly sensitive. Over the next few days, the top layer of skin will gradually peel off, revealing fresh, new skin underneath. It’s important to follow the post-peel care instructions provided by your skincare professional to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential complications.

What to expect during your VI Peel for acne treatment?

The procedure begins with cleansing your face to remove any makeup, dirt, and oils. This ensures that the peel solution can penetrate the skin effectively.

Following the cleanse, the VI Peel solution will be applied to your skin using a specialized applicator or brush. You might experience a tingling or mild stinging sensation as the peel solution is applied. This sensation is usually temporary and subsides quickly.

After the peel solution has been on your skin for the appropriate amount of time, the skincare professional will apply a post-peel toner and a moisturizer. These products help soothe the skin and initiate the healing process.

When is the best time to do a VI Peel?

You are able to have a VI Peel done at any time of the year.

What is the post care for a VI Peel?

You will receive specific post-peel care instructions from your provider to follow in the days and weeks following the treatment. This includes guidelines for cleansing, moisturizing, and using sunscreen.

After your VI Peel, you can expect your skin to start peeling on or around day 3 to day 5 and 6. This is a natural part of the exfoliation process and can vary in intensity depending on the peel’s depth. It’s important not to pick at or force the peeling skin to come off prematurely.

Sun protection is crucial during the peeling process and beyond. Your new skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so wearing sunscreen with adequate SPF and avoiding direct sun exposure is essential.

If you’re interested in getting a VI Peel for your acne-prone skin, it’s recommended to consult with one of our licensed aestheticians first. They can assess your skin, recommend the most suitable treatment plan, and guide you through the recovery process.
