Wrinkle Treatments in Santa Barbara at Evolutions

Wrinkles are a reality for everyone. They develop earlier for some people or later depending on a combination of genetics, environmental factors and skin care. Wrinkles form because our skin’s ability to maintain moisture and elasticity decreases, which causes sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Fortunately, there are many ways to reduce – or sometimes eliminate – the appearance of wrinkles. Below is a brief description of wrinkle treatments options at our Santa Barbara Medical Spa. (Click on the treatment name to read more on our website.)

Botox / Dysport: Excellent for smoothing frown lines between brows, reducing forehead wrinkles and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet). Typically lasts 3-4 months.

Dermal Fillers: Replace the natural volume of your skin to diminish wrinkles and folds. Fillers can also be used for facial contouring and enhancement of lips. Certain skin imperfections, like acne scars, can also be “filled” in. Results are instantaneous. Results last from 6 months to 18+ months, depending on the product used.

Skin Tightening: Non-invasive skin tightening (no surgery involved) helps to tighten existing collagen and stimulate new collagen production. Results are a firmer, “fresher” look. One procedure can make a difference, but results are optimal from a series of treatments.

Sculptra: A facial injectable filler that helps to replace lost collagen to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles. Results are seen gradually over 3 – 6 months and typically last over 2 years. Most people require 3 sessions of Sculptra.

Layered Liquid Lift: A unique protocol developed by Dr. Perkins layers a variety of injectable dermal fillers to fill wrinkles, restore fullness, and enhance facial contours. Treatment takes about 90 minutes, and the results are immediate and long lasting (usually 12 – 18 months).

Sublative Rejuvenation + DNA Repair: A resurfacing procedure to improve the appearance of acne scars, textural irregularities, and tighten skin. The treatment has little to no downtime. The typical treatment plan is 4 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart but can differ depending on your skin’s condition.

Laser Genesis: Laser therapy treats conditions typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage – such as large pores, diffuse redness, uneven texture, and fine-line wrinkles. The treatment will also produce new collagen. On average, 4-6 treatments achieve optimal results.

miraDry Sweating Treatment in Santa Barbara

miraDry Santa BarbaraIt has been HOT out there this summer but with miraDry, you don’t have to sweat it – ever!

We have been getting AMAZING results from our newest treatment, miraDry. If you are look for a permanent solution to eliminate underarm sweat and odor, look no further than miraDry at Evolutions!

Our Lead Nurse Allison recently had the treatment and here is her testimonial:

I received my miraDry treatment three months ago. Although I was never diagnosed with hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating), I was self conscious of my underarms sweating. It was also costly and inconvenient to launder and/or replace clothing stained by either sweat or antiperspirant. The procedure was very tolerable. The injections of the local anesthetic were no more painful than having my eyebrows waxed. The anesthetic kept me pain-free throughout the entire treatment and for several hours after.  I experienced some tenderness, bruising and swelling that lasted about 2 weeks. I noticed the effects of the treatment immediately and I have not needed to wear antiperspirant since.  I am so glad I did the treatment and I would highly recommend it to anyone who suffers from underarm perspiration…. And that’s everyone!

To book a complimentary miraDry consultation, call us today (805-695-2189)!

miraDry in Santa Barbara – Excessive Sweating Solution

miradry santa barbaraUnderarm sweat and odor can be really embarrassing. Excessive sweating (known as hyperhidrosis) can affect men and women and, until recently, there was little that could be done to permanently stop it. Now there is miraDry – in Santa Barbara at Evolutions – that is an FDA-cleared treatment that eliminates sweat and odor glands in your underarm area. In one to two treatments, you can become dry and odor free permanently!

The miraDry treatment is gaining popularity across the nation. It was recently featured in a news segment in Raleigh, North Carolina. Dr. Cynthia Diehl and her staff explain a bit more about miraDry and show a treatment being done. To watch the video, click here.

Put a stop to your excessive sweating! Call us today at (805) 695-2189 to schedule a complimentary consultation for miraDry in Santa Barbara.

Santa Barbara Medical Spa on 2014 Stats for Botox, Fillers

Botox use is at the top of the charts, again! The American Society of Plastic Surgeons released their stats for cosmetic surgery and minimally-invasive procedures in 2014. Overall aesthetic procedures, such as those offered in our Santa Barbara medical spa, are on the rise. Here are the top 5 minimally-invasive treatments performed in 2014:

There were almost 14,000,000 minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures done in 2014. We believe that these treatments are so popular because they yield great results with little (or no) downtime and are affordable to most.

Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialists in Santa Barbara

santa barbara medical spaOne of the things that makes Evolutions stand apart from other medical spas and doctors’ offices is our commitment to education and training.  Our Medical Director and founder, Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins personally and extensively trains all of our nurses and nurse practitioners so that you can be assured you receive the best care possible.

Additionally, we recently sent two of our clinicians (Allison and Sue) back to Florida to attend an aesthetic conference and take the Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS) exam.  The CANS exam is a rigorous test on medical aesthetics only available to nurses who have worked a minimum of 1000 hours in aesthetics over the last 2 years.  There are currently fewer than 20 Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialists in the state of California, so it is an exclusive group.  We are pleased to announce that both Allison and Sue passed the exam and are now officially Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialists! Though we have always known how skilled and knowledgeable they both are, this is a great confirmation of that fact!  Congratulations to Allison and Sue!

Book an appointment for Botox, Dysport, or dermal fillers with Allison, Sue, or another Evolutions clinician by calling 805-695-2189.
