A New Filler Available at Dream Spa Medical: Juvéderm Voluma™ XC

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 10, 2014

By: Mary Kelley




As we get older, our bodies experience a decrease in Hyaluronic Acid—a moisturizing acid that helps maintain the skin’s youthful volume and structure. A major sign of aging is volume loss in the face, especially the cheek area. Dream Spa Medical provides fillers that restore volume for a more youthful look and we are proud to add the first and only filler that is FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area.

Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is created by the same makers as Botox® and Juvéderm® XC. Patients who are familiar with Juvéderm® XC know how effective the product is for restoring volume around the nose and mouth. What makes Juvéderm Voluma™ XC unique is that this product is specifically designed for the cheek area and injections are clinically proven to provide volume for up to 2 years.

Most of us don’t have deep wrinkles in our cheeks and chose to focus on smoothing out lines around our noses or mouths. However, adding volume to our cheeks adds a subtle but effective way to look younger. Take a look at these before and after photos from the clinical trial:

This patient had 3.5 mL injected into her cheek area. As you can see, Juvéderm Voluma™ XC added fullness to the apex, apple, and hollow of her cheeks but the result is subtle. The patient does not look like she had work done even though volume has been restored to her cheek area. The clinical trial determined that optimal results are best achieved with an injection of 6.8 mL but our nurses will work with you to find the right amount of Juvéderm Voluma™ XC for your individual needs.

Schedule an appointment with one of our nurses today to discuss how Juvéderm Voluma™ XC can help you create a more youthful look. Many of our patients combine filler and Botox® treatments in one day. Dream Spa Medical is hosting a Botox® Day on February 27th. All Botox® treatments are 15% off on the 27th and Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is a perfect addition to your treatment.

Botox Day and Wrinkle Filler Special

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Another year has come and gone but you can still turn back the clock with Dream Spa Medical’s Botox and Juvaderm specials on January 13th and January 16th. We are offering 15% off of all Botox treatments and a buy 1, get the 2nd at 50% special on Juvaderm filler.

Botox® is used to treat frown lines around the eyes and forehead. Botox® works by relaxing the muscles that contract when you frown. Typically, Botox® takes 2-7 days to take full effect after injections and results last up to 3 months.

Juvéderm® is the smooth gel filler that your doctor or nurse uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you'll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds, like those "parentheses" lines around your mouth. Juvéderm™ injectable gel replaces the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.

Come in and treat yourself to one or both of these amazing specials. If you are getting a Botox® treatment, ask to schedule a HydraFacial and add on a DermaBuilder treatment before your Botox® treatment. The HydraFacial is a perfect treatment for the winter because the treatment exfoliates and hydrates the skin, leaving behind anti-aging serums to keep skin healthy. The DermaBuilder add-on is an additional $50 to the HydraFacial and contains muscle-relaxing peptides that will keep your skin smooth for up to 5 days while Botox® takes its full effect.

Stacey's Botox Testimonial

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 30, 2013

I never thought the day would be here that I would have to worry about wrinkles on my face. I am 37 years old and take very good care of my skin. I constantly stared in the mirror at the folds in my forehead. I feel so young.. yet the folds made me feel so old. I was constantly staring at myself in the mirror thinking.. "I am way to young to look older".

I knew from friends that Botox was an option for the folds. I put off doing anything about it until Dream Spa Medical was established. It is close to my office which gave me the push to take advantage of a free consultation.

The worries I had before my consultation were.

  • Would a licensed professional be injecting the Botox into my skin
  • How painful would it be.
  • Could I afford this "luxury" procedure.

After my consult at Dream Spa Medical I immediately booked my Botox procedure . I cannot put into the appropriate words how happy I am.. and how amazing such a small, non surgical procedure could change how I feel about myself.

The procedure was so easy, so painless, so quick and so affordable. Within 3 days I felt 10 years younger.

My family and friends that knew I was having the procedure done are amazed by the results. The best part for me is that it looks and feels so natural. No one will be able to look at me and say.. "Wow she just had Botox". They will just wonder what my secret is to looking so young.

What is Botox?

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 07, 2013

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic? BOTOX® has been used therapeutically for more than 17 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is approved in more than 75 countries and remains the most-studied botulinum toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. In 2002, the same formulation - under the label BOTOX® Cosmetic - was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65.

What causes frown lines between the brows? The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. When powerful muscles between the brows contract, they draw the brows together, causing the skin to fold or furrow. As skin becomes less elastic with age, those folds or furrows result in stubborn lines.

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work? During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic
are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles responsible for frown lines between the brows. By blocking the release of a chemical that causes these muscles to contract, BOTOX® Cosmetic
enables them to relax. The effects are very localized and, when administered by an experienced physician, do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression.
