  • Restylane and Lyft are fillers that can correct moderate to severe wrinkles, replace lost volume, or enhance your look. Results are instantaneous and typically last 6 to 9 months or more.
  • Sculptra encourages collagen growth to add fullness and provide a firmer foundation for your skin. Results can last 2+ years.

Now is the perfect time to register! Enroll today (it’s easy and free!) and you will receive:

  • A $20 treatment certificate towards your next Dysport, Restylane, or Sculptra service. 
  • Access to expert information to help you learn more about your skin from a healthcare professional.

Dermal Fillers in Santa Barbara

As we age, the natural volume and fullness in our face diminishes. While we can exercise to help maintain our body’s physique, there is not an at-home (or at-the-gym) remedy for facial aging. Over-the-counter creams and serums may give a “temporary” lift but they cannot provide the structure that is needed for longer-lasting results.

Fortunately, dermal fillers can replace the volume and fullness that has been lost. In addition to volume replacement, fillers can be used to correct skin imperfections like wrinkles, acne scars, fine lines, and can also be used to enhance the fullness of the lips. Many of the fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA) that is a naturally-occurring substance found in the skin. HA helps deliver nutrients, retain moisture and softness, and adds volume to the skin. Dermal filler results are instantaneous and can last 6 months to a year or more!

Here is information about some of our more popular dermal fillers at Evolutions:

Restylane and Restylane LyftThese FDA-approved fillers can be used for correction of mid-face contour deficiencies and for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles. They are comprised mostly of hyaluronic acid. They can last from 6 months to a year or more. In a clinical trial, patient satisfaction rate was 95.2% two months post treatment and 73% 12 months post treatment.

Juvederm
This HA filler is also FDA-approved and used to treat deficiencies in the cheeks in addition to lines and wrinkles. With optimal treatment, Juvederm has been proven to last one year in wrinkles and folds. When treated again after 1 year, patients needed less product to achieve their results.

Radiesse
This filler differs from Juvederm and Perlane because it is primarily comprised of Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. When injected, Radiesse provides immediate volume and correction. It continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, as the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA, your own natural collagen will be left behind. Radiesse is also FDA-approved.

Scultpra
If you are looking to replace lost collagen, Scupltra is a great option. The main ingredient of Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. Unlike Radiesse, Perlane, and Juvederm, results are not instantaneous. You will see results gradually over 3 to 6 months and they typically last 2 years. An excellent option for those that don’t need immediate correction and are looking for longer lasting results.

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.

Injectable Week at Evolutions Santa Barbara Includes Dermal Fillers, Botox and Dysport

As most of our loyal clients know, Evolutions Medical & Day Spa in Santa Barbara has the Biggest Week of the Year right around the corner! Injectable Week happens once a year with big savings on your favorite dermal filler or wrinkle-reducer (Botox or Dysport). This year it begins on Monday, December 2nd, and lasts until Saturday, December 7th, 2013. We are booking appointments now for Injectable Week!

For those of you who are not as familiar with dermal fillers, Sculptra, and/or the wrinkle-reducers Botox and Dysport, we will happily share with you some information about each of them. Perhaps it will help you to make a decision about getting an injectable treatment or encourage you to add a new treatment to your anti-aging arsenal.

Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport treatments are one of our most popular services at Evolutions, year round. This is not surprising! In 2012, there were over 6 million Botox or Dysport treatments in the US. Botox and Dysport are forms of botulinum toxin type A. They are both injected under the skin to treat overactive muscles in the forehead area. Botox and Dysport block the signals to the muscle that tell them to contract, resulting in a smooth, frown-less forehead. Botox or Dysport can take from 1 to 7 days to “set in” and start working. Both are FDA approved and are deemed safe and effective in the treatment of facial wrinkles. Dysport is a smaller molecule than Botox, so the units are different (i.e. 20 units of Botox equal 60 units of Dysport). Results are temporary and last about 3 to 4 months.

Evolutions Santa Barbara Dermal Fillers Treatment Areas
Possible Treatment Areas for Dermal Fillers

Restylane and Perlane: Dermal Fillers
Restylane and Perlane are in the same family of products. They are both dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid that are formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. These are injected under the skin to fill in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane can also be used to add fullness to the lips. Replacing volume lost in the face can help restore a more youthful appearance. Perlane differs from Restylane in the average size of the particles and the depth of the injection. Your Evolutions clinician will help you determine which product is best for you. Results are instantaneous and can last 6 months or more (in most cases).

Radiesse Dermal Filler
Radiesse is also a dermal filler. It differs from Restylane or Perlane in that it is comprised of calcium microspheres in gel. Radiesse is also injected under the skin to provide volume and structure in areas where volume has diminished. The bonus that Radiesse offers is that it works to stimulate your body to produce it’s own natural collagen. As the calcium gel is absorbed, your own natural collagen will remain behind, giving you volume and structure. Results are instantaneous and have been clinically proven to last one year or more.

Sculptra Aesthetic
Our newest treatment, Sculptra Aesthetic, is a bit different than hyaluronic dermal fillers or Radiesse. This new facial injectable does not give instantaneous results, instead subtle results are achieved over time. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for years in dissolvable stitches. Sculptra works deep within the dermis to gradually restore the collagen foundation that is lost as we age. With a more solid foundation, fullness is steadily returned to facial wrinkles. Results can last two years or more. Most clients require a full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, which is an average of three injection sessions over a few months, for the best outcome. Full results are gradually seen over 3 to 6 months.

A Note About Dermal Fillers and Botox/Dysport Treatments
If you’ve never had a dermal filler or Dysport/Botox treatment, you will have to come in for a consultation with our Physician’s Assistant, Nurse Practitioner or Dr. Perkins prior to your first treatment. Call us today to book your complimentary consultation (or submit a consultation request online) and/or to make an appointment for Injectable Week (805-687-0212).

RADIESSE Dermal Filler at Santa Barbara Medical Spa’s “Injectable Week”

Evolutions Medical Spa‘s most popular event of the year is just around the corner! Injectable Week features “once a year” specials on all our injectables including Botox, Dysport, Perlane, Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse. Botox and Dysport relax muscles in the forehead region to smooth wrinkles while dermal fillers “fill” crevices, wrinkles, fine lines, and folds.  A common place to use a filler is in the nasolabial lines that are present from the nose to the corners of the mouth (see the before and after picture below) however fillers can be used anywhere that your face is lacking volume.

RADIESSE Before-and-After
RADIESSE used to fill the nasolabial lines.

There are dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid molecules that attract water to the area filled which results in a restoration of facial volume. These fillers are Perlane, Restylane, and Juvederm and they commonly last six months or more (depending on the person). Our clients who have used these fillers before have been very satisfied with their results.  There is another filler, RADIESSE, that we wanted to highlight because it has an added benefit that hyaluronic acid fillers do not have – Radiesse can stimulate the production of your own collagen (and has been clinically proven to do so)!

RADIESSE is an FDA-approved injectable filler that is composed of calcium-based microspheres. It acts as a scaffolding under the skin to provide instantaneous lift and fullness while stimulating your body’s own collagen production so that your skin looks better over time. In addition to the collagen production, Radiesse has been clinically proven to last a year or more in clients. Radiesse can be a very affordable wrinkle correction option because the time between touch-ups is longer and you may need less product on subsequent treatments. For instance, if you need 2 syringes of Radiesse at the initial treatment for full correction, you may need only 1 syringe on a follow-up treatment, which could take place one or one and half years later.

A Radiesse treatment is relatively short and comfortable. Radiesse is FDA approved to be mixed with an anesthetic (lidocaine) to significantly improve your comfort level during the procedure. There is no downtime after a Radiesse treatment although exercising after the treatment is not recommended (normal exercise can be resumed the next day). Swelling or bruising may occur and can be treated with an ice pack. Some people do not experience any swelling or bruising.

Popular treatment areas are shown below but Radiesse can be used in many other places, as determined by you and your clinician:

Radiesse-treatment-areas

A great time to try Radiesse is during our Injectable Week where there will be savings and chances to win great raffle prizes during the entire week.

Injectable Week starts on Monday, November 26th and ends on Saturday, December 1st. Appointments book fast during this popular week so call today to get a spot – 805-687-0212!
