FAB for Fall event specials include:

$199 Botox (20 units): The wrinkle relaxer that started it all. Botox relaxes facial lines and wrinkles and lasts about 3 months.

$199 Dysport (50 units): Our favorite wrinkle relaxer because Dysport lasts the longest and goes the farthest. Dysport spreads more than Botox and Xeomin, making it ideal for treating larger areas like the forehead.

$199 Xeomin (20 units): The wrinkle relaxer that offers the fastest results and contains zero additives, making you less likely to become resistant.

$375 per syringe Belotero: The only filler that can be used to treat lines around the eyes.

$399 per syringe Volbella: the fine line filler that can subtly plump up the lips, and fill in vertical lip lines and fine lines on the face.

$475 per syringe Restylane: Our favorite filler for plumping up the lips, making them juicy and kissable.

$500 per syringe Juvederm: Great for filling in naso-labial folds and marrionette lines, and for injecting under the brow to create a lift.

$500 per vial Sculptra: Stimulates the production of your own collagen for gradual results that won’t give you away.

$500 per vial Kybella: An injectable treatment that breaks down, destroys, and dissolves fat cells underneath the chin.

$550 per syringe Radiesse: The facial filler that can do it all. Radiesse is our favorite for creating high cheekbones, for filling in lost facial volume and erasing shadows under the eyes, and for defining the chin and jawline. Radiesse can also be used to plump up aging hands, fill in acne scars, and to perform liquid nose jobs.

$550 per syringe Restylane Lyft: Used to lift and plump up the cheeks, add volume to the mid-face area, and to smooth smile lines.

$550 per syringe Juvederm Vollure: A long lasting facial filler used to erase smile lines and parentheses marks on either side of the nose.

$550 per syringe Restylane Refyne: A unique injectable product made of flexible hyaluronic acid that allows it to bend, or “flex” with your skin as you make facial expressions, creating softer and more natural-looking results. Best for treating laugh lines and nasolabial folds.

$550 per syringe Restylane Defyne: Like Refyne, Restylane Defyne is made of flexible hyaluronic acid, but it is sturdier. While Refyne is best for moderate laugh lines, Defyne is meant to plump up and fill in deep lines, without restricting your natural facial movements and expressions.

$599 per treatment AquaGold: An all-over facial smoothing and tightening treatment that is like photoshopping your skin in real life. AquaGold can be used to rejuvenate your face, neck, and chest.

$700 per syringe Juvederm Voluma: The best filler for defining the jaw line and to use in combination with Radiesse for cheek augmentation. Voluma is a long-lasting filler with results lasting up to 2 years.

$1200: Liquid Facelift (2 Syringes of Radiesse + one area of Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin): Creates youthful contours, restores lost volume, and smooths out facial wrinkles.

The hottest beauty treatment at half the price!

Microneedling is the hottest anti-aging skincare treatment, which works by pricking the skin with very fine needles, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin like crazy!

I know that doesn’t sound super fun, but don’t worry because microneedling is virtually painless and incredibly effective, with no downtime.

Check out the 7 benefits of microneedling below:

Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

Lines and wrinkles are caused by the loss of collagen and elastin. The micro-injuries created by microneedling stimulates the body’s natural wound healing process, increasing collagen and elastin production. Microneeedling improves the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles with incredibly natural-looking results.

Improves the appearance of acne scars

Scars are formed from an abnormal formation of collagen. Microneedling breaks up old scar tissue and stimulates the growth of smooth and healthy collagen.

Tightens loose skin

More collagen and elastin equals tighter and thicker skin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for providing your skin with structure and support. Without these important protein fibers, skin starts to sag.

Reverses pigmentation and evens skin tone

Hyperpigmetation is triggered by an abnormal production of melanin from acne, wounds, or sun exposure. Microneedling improves sun and age spots by shedding the top layer of the skin and stimulating the production of new non-pigmented skin cells.

Shrinks pore size

Microneedling stimulates the collagen in and around your pores, making them appear much smaller.

Increases absorption of your skin care products

Microneedling improves product absorption by creating thousands of invisible channels in your skin, allowing your expensive skincare products to reach the deeper layers of the skin where they can work their magic.

Improves the appearance of stretch marks

Stretch marks are caused by rapid skin stretching. Microneedling breaks down stretch mark tissue, fading stretch marks over time.

SKINPEN-WEB

SkinPen is the most effective microneedling device on the market, and when it comes to younger-looking, smoother, and more radiant skin, it’s our secret weapon.

SkinPen can be used on all parts of the body including your face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.

Right now, our SkinPen microneedling treatments are half price ($150 per area, regularly $300)! Purchase one treatment or several, for the smoothest and most radiant skin of your life.

Oh là là: 10 French Beauty Secrets

IMG_1932

French women make it look so easy.  They have a certain “je ne sais quio”, making them effortlessly beautiful, yet so chic and refined.  So how do French women do it?

1. Beauty should be pleasurable

Most American women believe in the idea of “no pain, no gain”, and that they have to suffer to be beautiful.  French women, au contraire, live by the “pleasure principle” , taking pleasure in everything they do.  French women believe that your beauty routine should be luxurious and make you feel as good as it makes you look.

2. Choose only the best

When it comes to beauty products (and food), French women use only the best.  They value quality over quantity.

3. Less is more

French women make “done-but-not-done” look so fabulously chic.  They don’t like to wear a lot of makeup, so they focus on protecting their skin instead of covering up flaws. French women think “skin first, makeup second”.

To master the French no-makeup look, emphasize just one feature at a time.  For example, if you are going to wear a bold lip color, keep your eye makeup very simple and natural-looking.

4. Prevention is key

As a French woman, you are never too young to start taking great care of yourself. French women treat their skin, hair, and body as best as they can so they don’t have to do much to look their best, setting them up for a lifetime of minimal beauty maintenance.

5. Your beauty routine should include your neck and décolletage

For the French, your “face” includes everything from the top of your forehead to your décolletage.  Proper skincare includes the face, neck, and décolletage, and you should use the same beauty products (especially sunblock) on all of these areas.

6. Professional beauty treatments are a necessity, not a luxury.

French women get facials as often as American women get manicures because the French believe that professional treatments are a necessary part of a skin care regimen.  When French girls turn 13, they have their first visit to an aesthetician to learn how to take care of their skin.

7. Drink Wine

French women drink wine every day.  Wine contains polyphenols and the powerful antioxidant resveratrol, which fights the free radical damage that causes premature aging.

Wine is also anti-inflammatory and improves circulation, giving your skin a natural glow.  As I like to say, “a glass of wine a day keeps the wrinkles away!”

8. Wear Red Lipstick

French women are all about making a statement with red lipstick.  When you wear a bold red lipstick, you can keep the rest of your makeup simple and you hair messy.  Then all you need to do is throw on a pair of jeans and high heels and you will look oh-so-French, and oh-so-good!

9. Confidence

For the French, how you feel about yourself is more important than how you look because confidence is the sexiest thing you can wear.

10. The Pharmacy

If you are a beauty addict like me and actually get to visit France, get your fix at a French pharmacy.  France has some of the best beauty and skincare products in the world and the French pharmacy is the best place to stock up!

How to get high cheekbones and contoured cheeks

Have you always longed for high cheekbones and perfectly plump, contoured cheeks?  The kind of cheeks that all models seem to have?

My mom (Carol, AKA Cosmetic Injector Superstar) has really high cheekbones, but unfortunately she didn’t pass them down to me. So, you better believe that I ask her to give me the cheeks that were my birthright with a Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation.

I have to admit, I don’t do a lot of facial fillers (yet), but plumping up my cheeks and having the illusion of high cheekbones is something I can’t live without!

And a huge bonus of a cheek augmentation is that it creates a very subtle and natural looking mid-face lift. When volume is added to the cheeks, everything is lifted up, improving the appearance of smile lines, marionette lines, and jowls, while creating a more youthful facial profile.

U. Med Spa’s Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation includes one syringe of Radiesse and one syringe of our new favorite cheek filler: Restylane Lyft, and is only $1099 for a limited time (regularly $1300).

Cheek AugmentationRadiesse is injected deep under the skin to create high cheekbones and Restylane Lyft is injected on top of Radiesse to give a soft, pillowy effect while volumizing the cheek area. Radiesse also stimulates your own skin to produce more collagen, creating long-lasting results.

In the video below, you can watch Carol (my cheeky mom) demonstrate the Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation.

Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation

Our Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation only takes 30 to 45 minutes and you can return to work immediately afterwards.  The treatment is virtually painless because lidocaine is pre-mixed into Radiesse and Restylane Lyft, minimizing any discomfort.

Results are immediate, safe, and long-lasting (up to 18 months!) due to the collagen-stimulating properties of Radiesse.

Not only will you have beautiful cheeks afterwards, but you will notice that your facial contours appear rounder and fuller, giving you a softer and more youthful appearance.

For a limited time, our Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation is only $1099, regularly $1300!

Keep your chin up with Kybella

Is a double chin and a not-so-flattering profile getting you down?

As we age, fat likes to accumulate underneath the chin. And even if you are eating right and working out, this area is extremely difficult to slim down.

In the past, liposuction was the only option for treating a double chin. Liposuction is invasive, expensive, and can lead to scarring and long recovery times.  Liposuction also doesn’t offer permanent results because if your weight fluctuates, your double chin will come back.

Now, with Kybella, you can keep your chin up (literally) without undergoing surgery.

Below is a before and after photo of one of our beautiful clients showing the huge difference Kybella can make to your profile:

Kybella before and after

Kybella is a revolutionary non-surgical FDA-approved injectable treatment that dissolves fat underneath the chin.

Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid, a natural substance found in the human body that breaks down and destroys fat cells. Once the fat cells are broken down, they are naturally eliminated by the body, gradually revealing a sleek and contoured chin and neck.

Kybella is a much safer, easier, and long-lasting alternative to liposuction. Once your fat cells are destroyed with deoxycholic acid, they can no longer store or accumulate fat.  Therefore, once you reach your desired profile, you will most likely never need an additional treatment!

Kybella PlanoFor a limited time, U. Med Spa is offering $100 off each syringe of Kybella, regularly $600 per syringe. To achieve a perfectly sleek profile, most people will need two to three Kybella treatments, spaced four weeks apart, and two syringes of Kybella per treatment.

PURCHASE ONLINE HERE

Kybella treatments are quick (15-20 minutes) and relatively pain-free. You may notice bruising or swelling at the injection sites but these effects are temporary and should subside within a few days after treatment.

How to raise eyebrows (without surgery)

Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought about how great you would look if your eyebrows were lifted up just a tad?

Going under the knife used to be the only way to lift up the brows.  But a surgical brow lift gone wrong can leave you looking like you’ve just seen a ghost, and these results are permanent!

Do you need a little lift but you’re not ready to make that kind of commitment?  U. Med Spa’s Non-Surgical Brow Lift using a neuromodulator like Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin is your answer!

You may remember from this post, that we have different muscle groups called agonist and antagonist muscles that play a sort of “tug-of-war” with the face when they contract.

Our Non-Surgical Brow Lift can give you a modest brow lift of several millimeters by relaxing the muscles that pull the eyebrows down so that the muscles that pull the eyebrows up can win the tug-of-war, creating a lift.

The result is a more youthful and refreshed appearance.  And for people with brows that are more or less horizontal in shape, a Non-Surgical Brow Lift can even add an attractive arch.

Click on the video below to watch our master cosmetic injector, Carol Robinson, demonstrate the Non-Surgical Brow Lift.

Non-Surgical Brow Lift

On average, results last about three months. During the treatment, a very fine needle is injected into each specific muscle for a few seconds with only the minor discomfort of a tiny pinch.  For sensitive types, topical anesthetic cream or ice can be applied beforehand.

For a limited time, U. Med Spa’s Non-Surgical Brow Lift is only $275.

Why I’m tossing out my table salt

Salt has a pretty bad reputation.  Everyone knows that too much salt can cause water retention, hypertension, and even heart disease.

But sodium is the most important electrolyte, and it’s responsible for regulating the water content in your body.  Sodium is also necessary for muscle, brain, and nervous system function.

So, did you know that most of us are eating the wrong kind of salt?

Regular table salt is about as far from natural as you can get and your body doesn’t know what to do with it, which leads to water retention and health problems.

Natural salt, AKA pure sea salt, contains 84 trace minerals that your body needs for optimum health.  In contrast, table salt is highly processed in excessive heat which strips away 82 of these minerals, leaving behind only sodium and chloride.

Nowadays, it is difficult to obtain the minerals your body needs from food because American farmlands are overworked, leading to mineral depletion in our soil. And if minerals aren’t present in the soil, they won’t be present in the food that we eat.

Therefore, the easiest way to consume these vital minerals is by eating sea salt. Sea salt is produced by the evaporation of seawater and although our land is becoming mineral depeleted, our planet’s seas are still abundant in minerals.

The two most popular forms of sea salt are Himalayan Sea Salt and Celtic Sea Salt, and both contain 84 trace minerals.

Himalayan Salt is a beautiful pink salt that is as old as the earth.  Himalayan Salt dates back to the earth’s creation and is believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea. How cool is that?! Celtic Sea Salt has a grayish-white hue and is naturally harvested in Brittany, France, near the Celtic Sea.

The 11 Benefits of Sea Salt
1. While table salt makes you retain water, sea salt does the opposite by helping your body achieve the optimum electrolyte balance, flushing out excess water.

2. Sea salt improves hydration because it contains many of the major electrolytes like sodium, magnesium, calcium, and potassium.  Instead of drinking Gatorade to replenish electrolytes, I add a pinch of Himalayan Salt to my drinking water (one pinch per liter).

3. Arguably one of the biggest benefits of sea salt is that it provides your body with the vital trace minerals that it needs for optimum health.

4. Because sea salt is so rich in minerals, it boosts your immune system and enhances resistance to infection and bacterial diseases.

5. Sea salt helps allergy sufferers by breaking up mucus, reducing congestion in your lungs and nasal passages, and supporting sinus and respiratory health.

6. While table salt can cause high blood pressure, sea salt has been shown to normalize blood pressure, regulate the heartbeat, and support vascular health.

7. Sea salt eliminates harmful sodium deposits from your body and can dissolve kidney and gallbladder stones.

8. Sea salt is helpful for diabetics because it can help balance blood sugar and promotes blood sugar health.

9. Sea salt eases muscle cramps by providing essential minerals to the muscles.

10. Consuming sea salt promotes a healthy pH balance in your cells, which improves brain function.  Sea salt alkalizes your body and reduces excess acidity, which is a cause of many degenerative diseases.

11. If you are taking a magnesium supplement, sea salt will help the magnesium to be more effective. Find out if you are magnesium deficient here.

How to use sea salt
Even though the benefits listed above are pretty awesome, sea salt should still be used in moderation.  The recommended daily intake for sodium is 2400mg per day, or about one teaspoon.

You can use Himalayan or Celtic Sea Salt instead of regular table salt in your cooking and to flavor your food, and it tastes much better!  Pure sea salt tastes “saltier” than table salt, so you generally need to use only 2/3 of the amount of salt that you would normally use.

And as I mentioned above, you can add a pinch of sea salt to your drinking water to add electrolytes and minerals for increased hydration.  I add a pinch of Himalayan Salt to every liter of my drinking water.  I tend to use Celtic Sea Salt in my cooking and Himalayan Sea Salt in my drinking water.

You can purchase my favorite Himalayan Sea Salt here and my favorite Celtic Sea Salt here.
