Some treatments provide immediate results, but many others take a few weeks for the full effects to appear. If you’re looking forward to the first holiday party (perhaps in person!) in nearly two years, we have you covered at VIDA. We are much more than a medical day spa. Led by Medical Director Dr. Glen Jarosz who trains every staff member to the highest standards, our team of experts are here to help you look your best as the holidays approach. This includes injectors Dr. Kim Thompson, Kseniya Trofimchik, RN, and Ashley Stinger, RN. Our CAEs are also here to help customers in all their skin care needs.
Botox is a favorite year-round, but this year why not branch out beyond the standard 20 units between the brows? There are many ways to use Botox to revitalize the face, from Botox for a slight brow lift to the lip flip in which Botox is injected into the upper lip to “flip” it out and reduce a gummy smile. This can also help you achieve a fuller-looking lip—but of course we also have dermal fillers.
Fillers and More this Holiday Season
VIDA carries all of the best dermal fillers for all of your needs and goals, from enhancing the lips to filling in the hollows below the eyes or defining the jaw. You can even use some hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers to restore good fat to the tops of the hands. Dermal fillers provide immediate results, but it can take a few days for swelling, redness, and bruising to subside. Like Botox, you’ll see full results about one week after your treatment.
Kybella is another injectable that works wonders, permanently dissolving submental fat that causes a double chin. However, unlike Botox and dermal fillers, Kybella’s results take longer to appear. You will need multiples sessions (3 – 6 on average) spaced about one month apart. That means that if you start Kybella now, you’ll be well on your way to final results by that New Year’s party! Kybella works by injecting deoxycholic acid directly into the targeted fat cells, which are then dissolved and naturally absorbed and expelled by the body.
Full Body Rejuvenation
Microneedling has long been a staple treatment that works fantastically by itself or can be paired with most other treatments. Microneedling works by “telling” your body to start producing more collagen—exactly where you want it. Tiny micro-injuries are created with a specialized device only available to medical day spas like VIDA. Your CAE will “roll” the device over the treatment area(s), which most often include the face and neck but microneedling can be performed just about anywhere. Although tiny needles are indeed used, they are so small that this treatment is quite comfortable. It feels a bit like an exfoliation.
Microneedling is similar to Kybella in that results are not immediate, because you are harnessing your body’s own healing powers. You’ll see results in about one month, and most clients opt for sessions every 4 – 6 weeks to keep those results. Microneedling is great to pair with treatments like DiamondGlow because it goes the extra mile in opening up the skin for product infusion.
More Treatments for Those on the Nice List
DiamondGlow is a patented system that uses a real diamond tip. The 3X1 Technology simultaneously exfoliates, extracts pores, and infuses the skin with medical-grade SkinMedica products. The exact diamond tip for you and your skin is selected by your CAE, as is the SkinMedica products that will give you results you’ll love. This makes every DiamondGlow experience one of a kind—just like you.
Laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels are two of the best ways to achieve total revitalization. Lasers and energy-based therapies like BBL turn back the clock, penetrating to the exact skin levels necessary to achieve clarity, brightness, and anti-aging. Chemical peels use a chemical concoction to peel away the top layer(s) of skin, which reveal more youthful skin below the surface while also stimulating collagen production. Results for chemical peels and lasers can be either immediate or reveal themselves in the weeks following the treatment depending on the laser, light, or peel type.
