Skin Tightening Ultherapy in Santa Barbara

We are always looking for the best non-invasive and minimally invasive technologies to offer our clients. For skin tightening treatments, we have been offering Total Tightening (a combination of ReFirme and Titan technology) for a number of years and we continue to get great results with it.

Dr. Perkins recently completed an extensive evaluation of another skin tightening technology that uses focused ultrasound called Ultherapy (he even got a treatment himself!) He is impressed with Ultherapy’s ability to do foundational skin tightening in the layers underneath the skin itself. With only one treatment, clients can see lifting, smoothing, and tightening of the skin on the face, neck, and/or chest.

Even better, Dr. Perkins has created a package called Ultherapy PLUS which combines an Ultherapy treatment with two Total Tightening treatments. Ultherapy PLUS will provide our clients with the most complete and effective non-invasive skin tightening package on the market today.

If you are interested in looking younger without surgery, call us today (805-695-2189) to book your consultation and see if Ultherapy or Ultherapy PLUS is right for you.

Santa Barbara Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk Filler Special

PERLANE IS NOW RESTYLANE LYFT 

Restylane Lyft Santa BarbaraMany of you are familiar with Perlane, which has been our most popular filler for many years. We are pleased to announce that Perlane has received FDA approval for correction of mid-face contour deficiencies.  This is the same area that Voluma is approved to treat.  Perlane is now the only filler approved to treat both the mid-face area and the nasolabial folds (the lines from the corner of the mouth to the nose).

With this approval, Galderma, the maker of Perlane, has changed the name of Perlane to Restylane Lyft.

Due to costs associated with receiving an additional FDA approval, Galderma has instituted a price increase on the new Restylane Lyft. Consequently, Evolutions will also be instituting a modest price increase ($25) as Perlane changes to Lyft. We placed an order just before the price increase, so our new pricing will not go into effect until September 1st. Call us and book before the end of the month to lock in old pricing.

INTRODUCING RESTYLANE SILK

Galderma also recently launched Restylane Silk, a filler designed specifically for the lips and lines around them.

Restylane Silk in Santa BarbaraSince this new filler was designed specifically for the lip area, it contains smoother particles so it can give a more natural-looking result. Restylane Silk is not just for those who want plumper lips. It also works extremely well to restore aging lips (those that have volume and/or shape loss and an increase in vertical lines above the lip). We have been working with Restylane Silk for a couple of months now and our clinical staff loves it. If you want natural-looking, full, soft, luscious lips, book an appointment to try Restylane Silk.

FILLER SPECIAL AT EVOLUTIONS

As part of the launches of Restylane Lyft and Restylane Silk, we have received a limited number of discount coupon codes from Galderma for clients who receive multiple syringes of Galderma filler (Restylane, Perlane/Lyft, or Silk).

Clients receiving 2 syringes will receive an instant rebate of $120 off! 

Clients receiving 3 syringes will receive an instant rebate of $180 off!

These rebates are in addition to the normal $200 off on second and third syringes, so it really is an amazing deal.

We only have 20 coupon codes available, so call now (805-695-2189) to take advantage of this amazing deal.

Please note that you must be in the Galderma Aspire program to receive the rebates. It is free and easy to sign up and those in the program will continue to get great rewards on all Galderma products (which also includes Dysport).

Health Benefits of a Santa Barbara Massage at Evolutions

Santa Barbara Massage at Evolutions Day Spa
Santa Barbara Massage at Evolutions

Part of our philosophy at Evolutions is to offer services and treatments that yield a “return”. Our medical spa services offer superior results and our day spa treatments offer relaxation and rejuvenation. When we added Evolutions Day Spa to our Santa Barbara Medical Spa business, we were very excited to offer massage services to the people and visitors of Santa Barbara because the benefits of a massage are abundant – both immediately and afterwards.

During a massage, most people’s heart rate slows and their blood pressure lowers, lulling them into a relaxed state. Massage is also known to lower cortisol levels (the hormone that is produced in response to stress). When cortisol declines,  there is an increase in serotonin (which plays a role in people’s moods, appetite, digestion, and sleep). An increase in serotonin can remain, even after the massage is done. A decrease in cortisol also allows for an increase in Natural Killer (NK) cells. These cells are the frontline of the immune system. An increase in NK cells can indicate a boost in immunity. In addition to boosting immunity and decreasing stress levels, studies have shown that people who receive massage on a regular basis spend more time in deep sleep – the most restorative stage of sleep for your body – which is the optimum time for your body and skin to repair and regenerate.

Some people see massage as an “indulgence” while others treat it as a “necessity”. Whatever the reason is that brings you in for your Santa Barbara massage, know that you will reap the benefits even after the massage is over.

Evolutions Medical & Day Spa Santa Barbara Thanks You!

Evolutions Medical and Day Spa Santa Barbara2013 was an exciting year for us! We had just settled into our new location on Chapala and Gutierrez Streets when we decided to seize the opportunity to add to our medical spa business and open up an adjoining day spa. Evolutions Day Spa in Santa Barbara opened in March 2013 offering the community a new luxurious retreat to indulge in relaxing spa services. It is the perfect complement to our medical spa facility.

On our medical spa side we offer medical and aesthetic treatments that address skin concerns such as wrinkle reduction (Botox, Dysport, dermal fillers), chemical peels, laser services (laser hair removal, tattoo removal, nail fungus treatment), acne care, skin tightening and more. Our day spa services focus primarily on taking away everyday stressors through massage, facials, and body treatments (wraps and scrubs with the Vichy Shower). Many of our clients have told us how pleased they are that they are able to fulfill all their spa needs under one roof.

As we close out 2013, we want to take a moment to say “Thank You” to all of our clients and friends. We are grateful for your support and loyalty.  We look forward to continuing to provide you with top notch medical and spa services in 2014!

Santa Barbara Medical Spa Featured Treatment: Sublative Rejuvenation + DNA Repair

Smooth and youthful-looking skin can be yours with our new and improved medical spa treatment: Sublative Rejuvenation + DNA Repair! Sublative Rejuvenation is one the of the best skin resurfacing procedures available and involves little to no pain and now includes DNA CryoStem Therapy to enhance your results.

Sublative Rejuvenation + DNA Repair is clinically proven for ALL skin types and can effectively treat and improve:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles (mild to moderate)
  • Textural irregularities (such as acne scarring)
  • Sun damage and age spots
  • General tone, texture, and color of skin
  • Skin laxity (face and chest)

How does Sublative Rejuvenation work?
Sublative Skin Resurfacing Santa Barbara Medical SpaSublative Rejuvenation uses Radio Frequency (RF) energy that is applied to the skin to induce a skin “injury” in tiny matrix spots. The skin “injury” is bigger under the surface (like an inverted cone) than on the surface. This helps the skin heal faster. As the skin heals, levels of collagen will be increased and new healthy skin cells are produced.

How does DNA Repair enhance the treatment?
 Adding the DNA serum immediately after the skin resurfacing treatment supercharges the rejuvenation procedure because the CryoStem Therapy serum is packed with collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin, DNA, RNA(I), fibroblasts, lipids, antioxidants, vitamins and embryonic bovine stem cells. These building blocks of the skin maximizes skin renewal. The DNA CryoStem Therapy consists of 100% natural, chemical and preservative free formulations.

Is there downtime with this skin resurfacing treatment?
There is no downtime with Sublative Rejuvenation + DNA Repair. Clients may develop tiny scabs (smaller than a pin prick) from the matrix spots that are barely visible and can be covered with makeup. These usually slough off quickly.

Does the treatment hurt?
30 minutes prior to the treatment we apply a physician-strength topical numbing treatment. With the topical numbing, clients report little to no pain.

Santa-Barbara-Sublative-Rejuvenation-Evolutions

How many treatments are recommended and when can I see results?
The total number of treatments depends upon your skin’s condition. Your Evolutions clinician can help determine what is right for you at your complimentary consultation. Typically, clients have 4 treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Results are noticeable within 1 to 2 weeks after the first treatment and are cumulative, therefore we encourage clients to stay on schedule with their treatments.

How much does Sublative Rejuvenation + DNA Repair cost?
 Price can vary according to the number of total treatments and the areas treated. For the month of January, we are offering an Introductory Special of 25% off Sublative Rejuvenation + DNA Repair Treatment and PackagesThe promotion is good until January 31, 2013 so call today to book your treatment or consultation at Evolutions Medical Spa in Santa Barbara – 805-687-0212.

Evolutions Wins “Best Medical Spa” and Announces New Location

The Santa Barbara Independent Readers’ Poll “Best of … 2012” was published on Thursday and we are delighted to announce that Evolutions Medical Spa has won “Best Medical Spa” for the 4th year in a row! We are honored to receive this award and thank you for voting for us!

Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins started Evolutions Medical Spa for clients who wanted medically-advanced, results-driven aesthetic treatments in a “day spa” environment instead of a physician’s office. A sampling of our skin care services include facials, anti-wrinkle treatments such as Dysport, Botox, and dermal fillers, the treatment of sun damage and other skin concerns through laser facials and Foto Facials, laser hair removal services, skin tightening treatments, chemical peels, stretch mark reduction, and, more recently, laser tattoo removal and laser nail fungus treatments. View a complete list of our aesthetic and medical services here

We opened our business almost seven years ago and have continuously grown over the years – adding more clinicians, nurses, and recently a Physician’s Assistant, all of whom have been extensively trained by Dr. Perkins. We have also added more innovative and effective treatments for a more robust menu. In so doing, we have outgrown our current location and are excited to be moving to a much larger building. We will be closed for the move from Wednesday, October 24th, to Tuesday, October 30th. Our new location will be open for business on Wednesday, October 31st, at 350 Chapala Street, Suite 103 (on the corner of Gutierrez and Chapala), in downtown Santa Barbara.

Thank you for your years of loyalty and support and we invite you to come see us at our new location soon!
