Botulinum Toxin A, commonly referred to as ‘Botox’ are injections that use a toxin to prevent a muscle from moving for a limited time. These injections are often used to smooth wrinkles on the face. They are also used to treat TMJ, sweating, lazy eye and other conditions.
The medicine in botulinum toxin A injections is made from the same toxin that causes a type of poisoning called botulism. However, the forms of purified botulinum toxin used by licensed health care providers meet medical standards. These standards were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. As a rule, the bacteria toxins used for medical purposes are not harmful if used correctly.
At VCI MedSpa we use Xeomin and Dysport. Xeomin uses the proprietary XTRACT Technology to double-filter the toxin. This results in a more purified protein with an active ingredient that contains only what is needed for desired treatment. Dysport is recommended for clients that seen to metabolize other toxins more quickly. It is also typical to see results from Dysport about 1 week sooner than with Xeomin. Both of these brands have reward clubs that can provide a discount on your treatments. Ask us how to enroll at your next visit to VCI MedSpa!
PCDC Lipolysis is administered by way of micro-injections which are injected locally into the subcutaneous fat found in the targeted treatment areas. This treatment is currently used in treatments of the unwanted fat found in the submental (double chin) and other small areas.
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.
