Our faces are one of the first places to show signs of aging. AYA Medical Spa offers services and skin care products to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and furrows. Cosmetic injectables are one of the most popular facial rejuvenation treatments to relax facial muscles and reduce wrinkling. In addition to injectables, another facial rejuvenation option often mistaken for injectables such as Botox® and Dysport®, is facial fillers. While injectables reduce wrinkles, facial fillers restore lost volume and fill in sunken areas that create wrinkles or fine lines around the eyes, along the forehead, and on the cheeks.
AYA offers Juvéderm®, Radiesse® and Sculptra® Aesthetic dermal fillers. The majority of our facial fillers such as Juvéderm® and Radiesse® contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in young tissue. Sculptra® Aesthetic uses the power of polylactic acid, created from fruit, to stimulate the body’s own collagen production to help treat wrinkles and improve skin elasticity.
Juvéderm® is an injectable gel to fill or re-plump furrows that develop on the cheeks. Juvéderm® XC is infused with local anesthetic lidocaine to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Like Juvéderm®, Radiesse® can fill areas of lost volume in the cheeks and chin areas, as well as the nose, temples, and hands. Radiesse® uses calcium-based ingredients to boost the body’s ability to produce collagen to increase skin elasticity.
Our last facial filler option, Sculptra® Aesthetic, rejuvenates skin around the nose and mouth of patients. Using the power of polylactic acid, Sculptra® gradually stimulates the body’s ability to produce collagen. However, Sculptra® requires a series of three injections before results fully appear.
All of our facial dermal fillers are non-surgical and can be performed in-office in under an hour by one of our licensed nurse injectors. Local anesthesia can also be applied during treatment to decrease discomfort. Most patients can return to normal activity with minimal to no downtime. If you are interested in one of our facial fillers or another facial rejuvenation treatment, contact one of our two locations to schedule an appointment.
