Botox is a fast and easy way to achieve a more youthful look. It is a minimally painless injection that is very effective in reducing the appearance of lines between the eyebrows, lines across the forehead, crow’s feet, lines above lip and horizontal lines on the neck.Botox works directly on the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. When the muscles treated are temporarily weakened the lines will soften and the face will appear smooth, fresh and rested. Botox is made of the botulinum toxin type A, which when used in very small amounts, has been found to temporarily paralyze muscles. On the face this is important because muscles are the culprit behind wrinkles, in this case the wrinkles caused by repeated actions such as frowning or squinting. When injected into the muscle creating the wrinkle, Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscle, stopping the muscle from contracting. With the muscle temporarily paralyzed, the wrinkle on the surface is reduced or disappears. This treatment takes about 10 minutes and consists of a few small injections. Within days this procedure creates a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. The results of this short procedure can last for up to 4 months. Results may vary.

Dermal fillers are a cosmetic dermatological procedure that is used to minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles while also replacing the lost volume which is known to plump lips. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. More than 1 million men and women annually have choose this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime.

Dermal injectable fillers deliver volume and tighten the skin. Their application is used to correct severe facial creases, wrinkles and folds. Dermal injectable fillers are also used for lip enhancement, defining cheek bones, etching chins and jawlines, under eye repair, and non-surgical nose jobs (non-surgical Rhinoplasty).
The simplified approach of “filling” a line in the face can make you look unusual by altering the natural proportion and nuances of the face. Wondermedspa’s skilled physician recognizes the necessity of staying youthful looking, while always remaining natural.

PDO threading is the premier option for non surgical facelift. The threads are composed of polydioxanone which is a safe and absorbable suture that is placed under the dermis of the skin. The suture stimulates collagen production which then fills wrinkles and tightens the skin. The suture absorbs completely in 4-6 months and the results of the collagen formation last 1-2 years.

Smooth threads are used to create a mesh (some placed vertically and some horizontally) under the skin to serve as a foundation for new collagen production. This technique tightens the skin naturally from within. Areas of use include nasolabial folds, marionette lines, tear troughs, smile lines, tighten skin in neck, forehead wrinkling and frown lines between the eyes. They can also be used in other areas of the body to tighten and rebuild collagen such as the abdomen, legs and arms.
Barbed threads are used to create a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have barbs, which provide grip underneath the skin. The skin will build collagen which will secure the lift. Areas of treatment for lift threads include lower face to improve the appearance of nasolabial folds and jowling, define jawline and tighten skin in neck. Lift threads can also be used to lift other areas of the body including breasts, buttocks, knees and other areas of laxity and sagging.
