No matter what your health or cosmetic concerns are, our job at Aire MedSpa in Sarasota, FL is to make you feel like a millionaire. Whether you’re looking to regain your glowing complexion, get rid of some excess wrinkles, or fight a stubborn double chin, we have the tools and experience to help you. Dr. Francesca Walters and her expert team offer a wide variety of innovative treatments at our Med spa in Lakewood Ranch.
When it comes to brand-name products, Botox is the most popular and widely used around the world. The highly effective treatment uses botulinum toxin, a substance that can block the nerve signals that contract your muscles, thereby relaxing them and smoothing out any wrinkles or uneven areas of the skin.
Botox is usually injected into the facial area to get rid of common signs of aging, but it also has some significant health benefits. Many people benefit from it for medical reasons, for example, if they suffer from migraines or severe headaches, excessive sweating, or if they tend to clench their jaw and grind their teeth. This ability to treat a variety of medical conditions is what makes Botox so unique and versatile.
Your Botox Appointment
This Botox treatment can be used to get rid of a variety of conditions, including crow’s feet, smoker’s lines around the mouth, bunny lines around the nose, dimpling in the chin, and thin upper or lower lips. We will discuss with you how many injections you’ll need for the desired treatment and how long the effects will last. In general, you can expect your wrinkles to be smoothed out for 3-4 months before you will need to return for another treatment.
An alternative to traditional Botox treatment is Juvederm, a dermal filler that can also address a wide variety of issues related to your face. The gel-like solution consists of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is also naturally present in your body and helps to enhance your skin’s natural fullness and plumpness. There are currently five different types of Juvederm treatments available, and all of them target slightly different concerns or areas of the face.
While there are anesthesia options for people who are especially sensitive, this is not a surgical procedure, and lidocaine is already included in our XC formulas. This allows you to enjoy a pain-free appointment and minimal downtime after your treatment. Juvederm lasts longer than botox, and you may not need to return for a top-up until 6-24 months after your first round of injections.
The third brand-name injectable we offer is Radiesse and addresses certain areas of your face and your hands. The gel-based substance is designed to stimulate the production of collagen, which is the most important protein in our skin. Radiesse contains calcium-based microspheres which stimulate your body’s natural collagen and help to make your skin look plump and firm.
Over time, the microspheres are expelled by the body, but the new collagen produced will stay behind, so that you can enjoy natural-looking results for up to two years. Like Juvederm, this injectable can be mixed with lidocaine to provide you with a pain-free and enjoyable experience, and you are likely to be in and out of our clinic in under an hour.
No matter how well they eat and how much they exercise, some people struggle with a stubborn double chin due to genetic factors or aging. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that can address this concern quickly and effectively. Like Juvederm, it uses a synthetic version of an acid naturally occurring in your body, in this case, deoxycholic acid. This will melt away your fat cells, so your profile looks lean and beautiful once more.
The biggest advantage of Kybella is that the effects are permanent, as fat cells can’t regrow once we are out of our teens. Although your double chin may return if you gain weight, it will not be as pronounced as before, simply because there are fewer fat cells present in the area. Like the other treatments, Kybella is non-surgical and you will be able to resume your daily activities almost straight away.
If you are struggling with constant fatigue and exhaustion, you could benefit from B12 injections, which consist of cyanocobalamin, a synthetic version of this vitamin. The injections can treat a variety of common concerns, such as a weak immune system, chronic fatigue, and neurological issues. Although the substance is synthetic, it is actually more effective than taking oral supplements as the micronutrient doesn’t have to pass through the gut.
Some of the countless benefits of having B12 injections are improved metabolism, enhanced weight loss, more energy all day, a better mood, and a stronger immune system. People particularly vulnerable to B12 deficiencies are vegetarians and vegans, so this is a great option for those who have made such dietary choices.
Our Med spa in Lakewood Ranch is one of the few places where PDO threads are offered in the Sarasota area. This is an FDA-approved treatment that can act as a lift for your face, neck, and body, without the negative consequences of having a surgical procedure. There is almost no downtime and discomfort, and you won’t have to worry about scarring or looking unnatural as a result of the treatment.
Depending on your goals and the areas you’d like treated, we will use different kinds of threads. While Levo threads work instantly to smooth out wrinkles and lift your skin, Smuth threads will work over time, so that your results appear more gradually. You will be able to benefit from the effects of the treatment for up to two years, as the threads promote the growth of natural collagen in your body.
Aside from the well-known injectables, there is a new and exciting type of treatment called platelet-rich plasma. This injection uses components of your own blood, called platelets, to stimulate the growth of new, healthy cells and the disposal of broken ones. Your body usually sends platelets to injuries to promote blood clotting and regeneration. By injecting them directly to the areas where you most need new cells, we can use this mechanism to our advantage.
You may have heard of PRP technology being used on professional athletes after an injury as a way to help their bodies heal faster and get them back on the playing field. Now, we can use this same method for a wide variety of treatments, whether they are cosmetic or medical. If you have dark spots, wrinkles, lax skin, enlarged pores, or acne, PRP could be the way for your skin to regain its former smoothness.
When your body perceives an injury, it sends platelets and other substances to the area to encourage wound healing. During a microneedling session, we use this fact to our advantage by creating tiny pricks in your skin. The body will start to produce more new and healthy cells in the area than needed, as the injuries are so microscopic. As a result, your skin appears more youthful and fresher than before.
Microneedling is performed with a handheld device and usually takes less than half an hour. Because we will apply numbing cream before getting started, it won’t feel unpleasant. Often, this treatment is combined with platelet-rich plasma, as the microscopic holes in your skin will help your body to absorb the platelets deeper into the tissue. When used together, the two methods are even more powerful at reducing the visible signs of aging.
