Botox, Dysport, Xeomin: Top Cosmetic Treatments in the US

Last year there were over 7.4 million Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin treatments in the US. 

According to the 2018 National Plastic Surgery Statistics report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Botox, Dsyport, and Xeomin are up 845% from a mere 786,911 treatments in 2000.

Why is Botox so popular? At our Santa Barbara medical spa, our clients tell us they love Botox/Dysport because:

  • It’s a quick treatment with no downtime
  • Botox / Dysport is affordable (in comparison with a plastic surgery procedure)
  • Great results!

Botox and Dysport are primarily used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet (around the eyes). It may be used in other areas of the face (only recommended if your nurse is trained and experienced). Injected Botox blocks the signal from the nerves to the muscles which prevents them from contracting. The result is a softening and relaxing of wrinkles in the injected area. A Botox/Dysport treatment takes about 30 minutes and there is very little discomfort. Most people see full results one to two weeks after the appointment. Results last 3 to 4+ months.

If you are considering Botox/Dsyport, call us to today (805-695-2197) to schedule a consultation or request an appointment online.

Featured Day Spa Treatment: DermaSweep MD

As our skin ages, the natural exfoliation process slows down. Exfoliating treatments at Evolutions work to speed up the natural cell turnover and help you to achieve and maintain clear, healthy, youthful-looking skin.

DermaSweep MD is our most advanced exfoliation treatment. It uses a variable-level vacuum system to gently lift the skin as the device “sweeps away” the dead skin layer quickly and painlessly. Increased blood flow in the treated area encourages collagen formation, toning, and firming of the skin.

A DermaSweep treatment also includes an Epi-Fusion. You aesthetician will help you choose a skin specific topical solution that is designed to treat common concerns such as photodamage / sun-damaged skin, acne, dry skin, and hyperpigmentation. The solution is applied under vacuum pressure while the system gently removes dead skin cells.

The treatment is relaxing and designed to improve overall skin health and you will notice the difference in your skin after one treatment. DermaSweep MD is $165 per treatment or purchase a series of 6 for $825 (1 free).

Contact us at (805) 695-2160 to schedule your DermaSweep MD appointment.

Rhonda was the first employee hired when the Perkins family decided to start Evolutions Medical Spa over 13 years ago! She also works at Cottage Hospital (in the Oncology Unit), so she typically only works at Evolutions one half day per week, but she is a great aesthetic nurse and has an extremely loyal following.

What is your favorite treatment to perform?  Why?

Neuromodulators (Dysport and Botox) for the (relatively) immediate results and the impact it has on my clients’ appearance and confidence.

What is your preferred treatment at Evolutions to have done?

Ultherapy – the results can be dramatic for the appropriate client.

What is your #1 home care product that is sold at Evolutions?  Why?

Luzern Force De Vie Creme Intensive. What they don’t list in the ingredient deck is the “magic” it contains. I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT!

No matter what is going on in my life, I often hear my grandmother’s voice saying, “Lila, it could always be worse…”

Evolutions Employee Spotlight: Polly Dursum, R.N.

What really makes Evolutions special is our wonderful employees. When we started Evolutions Medical Spa back in 2005 we had 5 employees. We are now up to 30! They are all great people and they work very hard everyday to make your experience with Evolutions the best it can be. Each month we are featuring two employees to let you know a little bit more about the people that make up the Evolutions team.

Meet Polly Dursum, R.N., our lead clinician!

Polly Dursum, Evolutions Medical and Day SpaPolly has worked at Evolutions for almost four years and has been the lead for the last two. She does an amazing job with treatments, training, and other administrative tasks.  She’s also studying to become a Nurse Practitioner.

What is the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had (prior to Evolutions)?

I traveled for two years around South East Asia and worked as an English teacher and piano teacher during my travels. 

What do you like about working at Evolutions? 

Evolutions is a family-owned business and that is one of the unique and best aspects of working here. Dr. Perkins is one of the kindest and most hardworking doctors I have ever worked with. His unwavering compassion and dedication to his patients sets the standard of patient care and our culture of care at Evolutions. I’ve always candidly joked that Dr. Perkins is Mr. Rogers meets Santa Claus! I’ve never worked in a place before that I truly enjoy and love working with everyone – both staff and my patients. The Perkins makes Evolutions an extension of their family and, as their staff, we make our patients and clients an extension of our Evolutions family. 

What is your favorite aesthetic treatment to perform? Why?

Dermal Fillers! Even though I am an RN, I majored in music and piano performance in college and I am a classically trained pianist. I love the fine arts and any form of artistic expression. Dermal filler is the fusion of art and science and what makes aesthetic medicine truly an art. I like to compare dermal fillers to sculpting and painting. Every face has its intrinsic beauty and balance that requires respect. My job as an aesthetic nurse is to restore and bring that unique aspect to light. My patients often see me get excited when I do their dermal filler treatment! 

What is your preferred treatment at Evolutions to have done?

Getting pampered in the day spa side. I’ve often called the Day Spa and the Medical Spa the “Ying and Yang” of Evolutions, respectively. My favorite treatment is the Deluxe Oxygen Facial and I recommend it often to my patients as a day spa treatment. It’s my “red carpet ready” facial and leaves your skin glowing, plump (even your lips!), and smooth for days. 

What is your #1 home care product sold at Evolutions? Why? 

I am going to pick two. I never travel without my Luzern Serum Absolut V15 (antioxidant Vit C serum complex) for morning application and NIA 24 Intensive Retinol Repair for evening application. I tell my patients Vitamin C serums “lightens, tightens, and brightens” and it’s my skin’s OJ in the morning. Retinols are great for your skin because they unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discoloration and smooth skin. I particularly like the NIA retinol because it’s less irritating on my skin and not overly drying. 

What is your favorite quote?

“Love is the bridge between you and everything.” – Rumi 

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

I’ve won a foosball championship. I’m awful at sports but for some reason undefeated in foosball (well, so far!).

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love to read, do yoga, listen to and play music, and hike.
