Wrinkle ReductionAt Elysian Med Spa, the options for treatment of wrinkles are many. Read on to learn which may be best for you, and call to schedule a consultation.
Botox® Cosmetic for WrinklesDo you have frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crows feet around the eyes? A popular non-surgical injection, Botox temporarily reduces or remove frown lines, forehead creases, and crows feet near the eyes. The medicine blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
What are Botox® Uses?Facial line softening of the upper half of face: forehead furrowing, eye lines (crows feet) and frown lines between the eyes. It can also be used to treat excessive sweating, (hyperhydrosis) of the underarms, hands and feet. Studies have also suggested that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
How is Botox® Administered?Using a tiny needle, a very small amount of Botox is injected into locations on the face. Because the needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is used, the discomfort associated with the injections is minimal. Most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. No sedation or local anesthetic is needed, and you can resume normal activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to the office.
Who is suitable for Botox®?Anyone who is not pregnant, breast feeding, taking antibiotics or suffering from severe neuromuscular disorders. Thousands of women and men have already discovered the benefits of BOTOX®.
Are the injections painful?Most people only experience a mild momentary discomfort. There is a slight swelling immediately after which settles within a few hours and application of ice helps.
When will I notice a difference?It begins to work in about 5 days. The greatest effect is seen after about 2-3 weeks.
How long will it last?3-6 months depending on each individuals response. Repeat treatments have been shown to last longer. Treatment with Botox can typically be repeated indefinitely.
Restylane®Restylane® is a revolutionary solution to wrinkles and thin lips. It gently smoothes away fine lines around the lips and mouth and on the forehead, leaving no scars at the injection sites. Restylane® is completely biodegradable and contains no animal proteins, so it is natural and considered extremely safe. Restylane® is primarily used for lip definition and enhancement (especially to prevent lipstick "bleeding") and wrinkle correction. It is particularly effective in filling fine, superficial lines in the chin and cheeks and for shaping facial contours and for lip augmentation. Performed in 60-minute sessions, Restylane® treatments are long lasting and can be repeated as necessary, typically every six to 12 months. If you have questions about Restylane®, Elysian Med Spa staff members are always available to answer your questions.

Regenique Medical Skin RejuvenationYou don't have to experience pain, spend thousands of dollars or stay home for days or weeks recuperating. Régenique in three medically-proven steps can do it all for all skin types and all skin colors.
Your Régenique treatment will include these steps:
1. Prepare: the world's best medical skin rejuvenation treatment.
It's safe, therapeutic, and the very best way to smooth and polish your skin. The medical microdermabrasion system treats the skin by removing the resistive stratum corneum layer (top most layer) skin with no-pain and a lot to gain.
2. Experience: the effects of deep heating & massage.
The ExcellaWave revolutionary ultrasound and electrical stimulation device increases circulation and promotes improved elasticity in your skin. The medical ultrasound treatment deep heats the layers of the skin, while the electrical stimulation creates a deep therapeutic massage to the tissue. This step is essential to the maximum absorption of the skin specific topicals for the next step.
3. Relax: your treatment is topped of by skin care products and a mask that produces deep results.
You'll rest while your medical professional applies luxurious skin specific nutrients to your skin and then applies a medical grade silicone mask to cover the skin creating a seal that super-hydrates each layer and enhances absorption. ExcellaPure's safe, non-allergenic skin products may be combined for treatment of multiple skin conditions.
This process forces toxins in the dermis to rise to the epidermis in the form of perspiration. The toxins burn off, the remaining water grabs the skin care nutrients and drives them into the dermal layer, creating super hydration to the layers of the skin and treating the skin condition where damage begins and where the effects of new collagen production begin.
Elysian Med Spa is proud to be the exclusive provider of the Regenique System in our area. This is fast becoming one of our most popular treatments in light of its immediate results and affordability!
