The Non-Surgical Med Spas’ Cosmetic Treatments Trend!
Micro-Needling the Skin needling provides results similar to laser resurfacing and chemical peels but at a fraction of the cost and with minimal downtime. Each fine needle punctures the skin and creates a tiny channel or micro-wound to the dermis. This controlled micro-injury triggers the body to stimulate fibroblasts and growth factors to fill these micro-wounds with the production of new collagen and elastin. In addition, new capillaries are formed. It is called the New Facelift without going under the knife Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive, non surgical and non ablative procedure for skin rejuvenation. It involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury which in turn ‘helps the skin help itself’. Through the use of ultra-fine needles, it is able to trigger the body’s natural healing process, causing the generation of new collagen and elastin. The result can be healthier, smoother, younger-looking skin. The adjustable depth of needle penetration is what allows MicroNeedling to be used for a variety of treatments. The method of controlled wounding prompts the body to return to the healing phase. It can also be used as an effective way to treat mild scars. The micro-needling technique breaks up the dense collagen fibers of scar tissue and repositions them, which can help to reduce the appearance of the scar.
Microblading is a techique of making brow hairstrokes by gently drawing a set of slightly curved needles through the epidermal and superficial dermal layer of the skin. Microblading is the new cosmetic phenomenon that has cut down women’s morning prep time since they can eliminate sketching in those perfect brows. Microblading is a semi-permanent brow treatment. It is perfect for replenishing lifeless, sparse or over-plucked brows, or for simply breathing life into lackluster arches, It’s also a great treatment if you’re experiencing hair loss or have been through chemo.The effects are expected to last between three and six months. Instead of a tattoo gun, a pen is used to draw on individual strokes, which mimic real brow hairs to create a natural-looking finish. This is a new and improved form of tattoo artistry, where pigment is implanted in the first layer of the skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine, which has a cleaner finish. Hair-like strokes do not go as deep as traditional permanent cosmetic procedures, creating very fine brow-like hairs, making this procedure the most natural procedure you can get to achieve your desired eyebrows.The treatment is almost pain-free, but a numbing cream is used on the area. This is ideal for those whose eyebrows have been over-plucked or those dealing with concerns that cause hair loss around that area. It produces hairs that are thinner than what comes about through semi-permanent make-up. The pigment will not change in its color either. The realistic and attractive looks will add something special and intriguing for all to watch for. The results can last up to 2 years and will require a ‘refresh’ boost normally between 18-24 months.

You’re left with new, softer skin and more even skin texture. In addition to surface exfoliation, Microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis, it cleans the pores, and stimulates collagen production that can further improve skin texture. Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands. Microdermabrasion is generally indicated for:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles Age Spots,
- Sun Damage and Hyperpigmentation

Overall, the effect is much like turning back the clock to restore the silky soft skin of younger years.
Botox & Dysport:
Botox is most often used on forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the outside corner of the eye) and frown lines (wrinkles between the eyes). Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox. The Botox procedure takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required, but can be used if patient desires. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles. Botox results are visible typically seven to ten days after treatment, but for complete result we suggested waiting the recommend full two weeks. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.
The effects from Botox will last four to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax. That is why we recommend coming in every 3 months for your next Botox treatment and not to wait until the full effects of Botox is gone, because the muscles are being trained to stay relaxed.
Dysport: Dysport injections work quite well and the results last 3-4 months before the product wear off. Patients often do it again right away. And depending on the patient, he or she can see results right away. But if the wrinkles have been there for a long time, it can take weeks or months for the results to be noticeable. It is always important to make sure the #Botox or other product is injected by a doctor or licensed nurse. By using these products do require a bit of training and things can go wrong. The most common side effect is tiny bruise at the site of injection. Dysport is particularly used in the upper half of the face, where there are wrinkles created over time by moving muscles in the area. Furrowing your brown or scrunching up your forehead may be expressive during conversation, but it also creates wrinkles.
Voluma XC: The first and only FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the midface. Juvederm VOLUMA XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) facial filler specifically made to restore age-related volume loss in the mid-face (the cheeks, cheekbones and around the chin).The product has had great success in Europe and Canada and Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa will be one of the first providers in Arizona to offer this treatment! Juvederm VOLUMA XC was developed to be smoother than other HA fillers, making it easier to inject and resulting in a smooth, natural look and feel. Juvederm Voluma XC, natural-looking results last up to 2 years.
Restylane Lyft: Restylane® Lyft is a new type of injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. It is the first and only FDA-approved filler to restore fullness to the cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth ‘smile lines’ (nasolabial folds). Restylane Lyft is a denser concetration of hyaluronic acid than Restylane.
Restylane® Lyft is the newest product from Galderma, a leading manufacturer of cosmetics and medical products. Formerly known as Perlane®-L, Restylane® Lyft has been reconfigured to allow the physician to more carefully administer the necessary amount for each patient.
Juvederm Vollure XC: Vollure is a temporary facial filler that uses Allergan’s patented Vycross™ Technology. It’s used for the treatment of volume loss, facial contouring of the face and ‘static’ wrinkles in the nasolabial folds.
Juvéderm Vollure XC is FDA-approved to use the Vycross technology in the nasolabial folds, which also happens to be the number-one dermal treatment area.
“What’s exciting about Juvéderm Vollure XC is that it was shown to last up to 18 months from the initial or touch-up injection in a majority of subjects, which is the longest-lasting result shown in a clinical study in the nasolabial folds. This development is major news for many patients who typically get nasolabial folds area treated with fillers, but are looking for a filler that can provide results in the area for a longer time period.
CoolSculpting: CoolSculpting involves the use of a small or large (or both, depending on which areas are being treated) paddle-like applicator attached to a hose that provides the cold. Regardless of size, each device has 2 panels with 3,000 sensors per side. A gel pad to help protect your skin is placed over the area being treated, and then the CoolSculpting device is applied and powered up. Once on, the applicatorsecurely pulls up the area being treated between the two panels where it remains for the duration of the treatment. After a few minutes, you’ll begin to feel intense cold. Don’t be surprised if the cold rush is accompanied by stinging, tingling, aching, or acramping sensation. This is normal and will lessen (if not go away completely) as the area becomes numb. Your practitioner will ensure you’re comfortable and help get you situated, and then leave you alone to relax as the procedure continues on its own. Through DualSculpting™ we can now treat both sides at once to decrease your total treatment time. This great time-saving approach allows our patients to gain back their valuable time while still receiving the excellent CoolSculpting™ benefits.
