Five Most Popular Aesthetic Treatments at Skin Theory
Botox® is the #1 cosmetic treatment for reducing wrinkles and fine lines and is one of the treatments our patients keep coming back for.
What is Botox®?
Botox®, a neurotoxin, is a cosmetic treatment that uses botulinum toxin to relax the muscles in your face temporarily. As a result, it helps smoothen wrinkles and gives your skin a more youthful appearance. Botox® injections are commonly injected on the forehead, around the eyes, and on the lips. Other neurotoxin brands that provide similar results are Xeomin, Dysport, Jeuveau, and DAXI.
How Does Botox® Work?
When injected into the muscles, Botox® works by blocking nerve signals to reduce wrinkles. The results of Botox® injections are not permanent and typically last for 3-6 months. After that, you need another injection to maintain the results.
What Are The Benefits of Botox®?
In addition to reducing wrinkles, Botox® can also be used to treat migraines and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). A popular treatment using toxins is treating the masseters for TMJs and slimming of the face. Botox® injections for migraines are usually given every 12 weeks, and they can provide significant relief for people who suffer from chronic migraines. In addition, Botox® can provide long-lasting relief from excessive sweating by temporarily paralyzing the sweat glands of people with hyperhidrosis.
What Are The Risks of Getting Botox®?
While Botox® is generally safe when injected by a trained professional, some risks are associated with the treatment. These include bruising at the injection site, headache, drooping eyelids, and nausea. In rare cases, Botox® can also cause serious side effects like difficulty swallowing or breathing.
How to Choose The Right Medspa for Your Botox® Injections?
As with any cosmetic procedure, you must do your research before choosing a medspa to get Botox® injections. Make sure to read reviews and ask for recommendations before making your decision. And always consult with an experienced physician or certified injector to ensure you’re getting the best possible care. Now that you know all there is to know about Botox®, you can make an informed decision about whether or not this cosmetic treatment is right for you. If you get injections, choose a reputable medspa with experience administering them.

What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are cosmetic injectables that can add volume and fullness to the lips. There are many different lip fillers on the market, but the most popular is hyaluronic acid. This substance occurs naturally in the body and helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump. When injected into the lips, it can create a temporary increase in volume that lasts for several months. Different lip fillers are available, such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Belotero, and the RHA Collection.
What Are The Benefits of Lip Fillers?
One of the main benefits of lip fillers is that they are relatively quick and easy to get. The actual treatment takes minutes, and there is little to no downtime. You can typically expect results within a week after getting your lip filler injections. Additionally, you can use lip fillers to achieve several different looks.
For example, if you’re looking for a subtle enhancement, your injector can use a small amount of filler to create a natural-looking result. On the other hand, if you’re going for a more dramatic look, your injector can use more filler to achieve fuller lips.
What Are The Risks of Getting Lip Fillers?
Although rare, there are some risks associated with getting lip fillers. These include bruising, swelling, redness, and pain at the injection site. In some cases, lip fillers can also cause allergic reactions or infections. It’s important to note that these side effects are usually mild and temporary. However, if you experience severe side effects or reactions, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately.
How to Choose The Right Medspa for Your Lip Fillers?
Choosing a reputable medspa with experienced injectors is essential when getting any injectable cosmetic treatment, including lip fillers. When researching medspas in your area, read reviews and ask for recommendations from people you trust. Once you’ve found a few potential options, schedule consultations so you can meet with each injector and get a feel for their experience level and bedside manner. During your consultation appointment, ask about the injector’s experience level and what type of training they have in administering cosmetic injectables. You should also ask about their policies on follow-up appointments and what to do if you experience any adverse reactions after getting your injections. By taking your time to choose the right medspa and injector for your treatment, you can ensure that you get the best possible results from your lip filler injections.
Laser Hair Removal
Our Laser Hair Removal treatment using our state-of-the-art Clarity II technology is a favorite of our patients. Clarity II is currently the fastest hair removal technology in aesthetics – it is 40% faster than every other option. In addition, its dual wavelength technology is safe to treat all skin types.
What is a Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a laser treatment to remove unwanted hair. It’s a popular alternative to more traditional methods like shaving, waxing, and tweezing, and Clarity II can do it virtually anywhere on the body.
Laser hair removal targets the pigment in your hair follicles with a concentrated light beam. The light energy is then absorbed by the pigment and converted into heat, which destroys the hair follicle. This process typically occurs over a series of treatments—usually six to eight—spaced four to six weeks apart.
What Are the Benefits of a Laser Hair Removal?
There are many benefits to laser hair removal, including the following:
Precision: Lasers can target specific areas with pinpoint accuracy.
Speed: Each pulse of the laser takes only a fraction of a second and can treat large areas quickly.
Permanent reduction: Most people experience between 70% to 80% permanent hair reduction.
Safety: Laser hair removal is generally safe when performed by a trained professional.
Fewer ingrown hairs: Shaving and waxing can lead to ingrown hairs; with laser hair removal, there is no risk of this side effect.
Comfort: Newer lasers boast cooling systems that help to keep the skin comfortable during treatment.
What Are The Risks of Getting A Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is considered safe when performed by a licensed professional. However, some potential risks are associated with the procedure, such as skin irritation, pigment changes in the skin, and eye injury. A Laser Technologist will provide a pre- and post-care guide. If you are taking any medications, it is also important to discuss this with the Laser Technologist. In addition, it would help if you avoid sun exposure after a Laser Hair Removal treatment.
How to Choose The Right Medspa for a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
When choosing a medspa for laser hair removal treatment, there are several factors you should take into consideration, including:
✅ The types of lasers they use. Not all lasers are created equal, so make sure the medspa uses FDA-cleared lasers that are appropriate for your skin type.
✅ The experience of their staff. Look for a medspa with trained and experienced staff who can answer any questions or concerns you may have about treatment.
✅ Their reputation. Read online reviews from past customers to get an idea of their experience and whether they would recommend medspa to others.
By considering these factors, you can choose the best medspa for your needs and ensure that you have a positive experience with laser hair removal treatment.
You’ve probably heard of microneedling by now. This popular skincare treatment is all the rage, and for a good reason. Microneedling can provide a host of benefits for your skin, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, evening out skin tone, and diminishing the appearance of scars.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skincare treatment that uses tiny needles to create microscopic injuries in the top layer of skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which increases collagen and elastin production. As a result, skin becomes firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking.
Some people perform microneedling at home with a derma roller. Derma rollers are small handheld devices with a roller covered in hundreds of tiny needles. At-home microneedling kits usually come with a numbing cream to help minimize discomfort. However, we do not recommend doing this as it is dangerous and can cause infection by reusing the roller.
Professional microneedling treatments use an Automated Microneedle Pen (or AMP). These devices are much more precise than derma rollers and can penetrate deeper into the skin, which results in more dramatic results. In addition, a professional can tailor the depth according to the result that you are looking for in a safe, controlled, and sterile environment.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling offers a variety of benefits for your skin. In addition to increasing collagen production, microneedling can also:
✅ Improve absorption of topical products
✅ Stimulate hair growth
✅ Reduce pore size
✅ Treat acne scars
✅ Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
✅ Even out skin tone
✅ Brighten dull skin
What are the Risks of Microneedling?
Microneedling is generally safe for most people. However, there are some risks associated with this treatment, including:
How to Choose the Right Medspa to get Microneedling?
To minimize the risk of complications, it’s crucial to choose a reputable medspa or dermatologist to perform your microneedling treatment. Be sure to ask about their experience with this procedure and whether they use sterile needles. It’s also important to follow all aftercare instructions, such as avoiding sun exposure and using sunscreen outdoors.
Chemical peels are popular among our patients looking to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
What is a Chemical Peel?
An acidic solution is applied to the skin during a chemical peel treatment to remove the top layer of dead skin cells.
Three types of chemical peels are light, medium, and deep. Light peels are the most superficial and require little to no recovery time. Medium peels penetrate deeper into the skin and typically result in redness and swelling. Deep peels penetrate the deepest layer of skin and can result in significant swelling, redness, and bruising. It is important to consult with a professional to determine which type of peel is right for you.
What Are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels offer several benefits for both men and women. Peels can treat various concerns such as acne, scarring, sun damage, melasma, hyperpigmentation, etc. Not only can peels improve the appearance of your skin, but they can also help to boost collagen production and make your skin feel softer and smoother.
What Are the Risks Associated with Chemical Peels?
As with any cosmetic procedure, chemical peels have some risks. The most common side effects are redness, swelling, itching, and burning. These side effects usually subside within a few days. More serious side effects include infection, scarring, and changes in skin color. It is important to consult with a certified and experienced specialist to ensure that you are a good candidate for a chemical peel and to minimize your risk for complications.
How to Choose the Right Medspa for Your Chemical Peel?
When choosing a medspa for your chemical peel treatment, it is important to do your research. Make sure that the provider you choose is certified and experienced. Also, be sure to ask about their experience performing chemical peels and the type of peel they recommend for your specific concerns. In addition, check if the medspa uses FDA-approved and medical-grade products.
