BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults. You can get treated in both areas at the same time—that’s the beauty of BOTOX® Cosmetic.
The treatment your aesthetic provider trusts
#1 selling product of its kind in the world*
How does it work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes—called the orbicularis oculi muscles.
For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into 2 muscles—the corrugator and procerus muscles.

The Ideal JUVEDERM Candidate
Anyone who is unhappy with the early signs of aging may make a great candidate for Juvederm. The treatments can benefit both men and women; it is safe for any skin type or ethnicity. The ideal patient will be in overall good health, understand the Juvederm process, and hold reasonable expectations for their results. Those with a history of an allergic reaction to dermal filler injections should not undergo a Juvederm treatment. A consultation appointment will be held before beginning Juvederm injections, to determine if Juvederm will meet each patient’s unique needs.
The JUVEDERM Procedure
The Juvederm procedure will take less than half an hour complete. Juvederm XC contains Lidocaine, an anesthetic, which keeps discomfort to a minimum. For added comfort, patients may request a topical numbing cream or local anesthetic. Once the consultation and anesthesia have been completed, the wrinkle-reducing filler will be applied with a very small needle, just above the underlying muscle and bone tissue.
Results from JUVEDERM
The benefits from Juvederm injections can be seen immediately. Lines and folds will be eliminated, the skin will be lifted, and healthy volume restored. Over the next two to three weeks, as any residual swelling or redness resolves, the results from Juvederm will continue to improve. The Hyaluronic Acid contained in Juvederm will also encourage the body’s natural production of collagen, giving the face further improvement.
The results from Juvederm can last from six to twelve months, sometimes longer. This will depend on the treatment area, the extent of correction, and the type of Juvederm used. After this time, a repeat treatment can be used to maintain the results.
Dermal fillers are delivered by injections to add volume to the face or to plump up scars, marionette lines, laugh lines or lips. They are a popular form of skin rejuvenation to soften fine lines and restore youthful contours. Using the latest state of the art technology, our professional, experienced and skilled staff will always provide an excellent, appropriate and natural-looking results. Wrinkles are only part of the aging equation. Volume loss in the cheeks is a major reason we lose that youthful profile over the years. If you are looking for a non- surgical face lift or you just want to smooth out a few fine lines or fill in deep set wrinkles, injectables are for you. Millions of people use dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression.
As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle – that’s where dermal fillers come into play.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area in people over the age of 21.
Gives a subtle lift
Helps restore contour for up to 2 years
Look up to 5 years younger
Contains a modified hyaluronic acid (HA), derived from a naturally occurring complex sugar
The Ideal Candidate for Juvederm Voluma XC
If you are over the age of 21 and are looking for a nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatment to restore facial fullness and volume, you may be a good candidate for Juvederm Voluma. Since the treatment is FDA approved and contains a modified form of the hyaluronic acid your body makes naturally, it is considered a safe treatment for men and women. Ideal candidates for Juvederm Voluma are also in good health, have realistic expectations of what to expect following treatment, and fully understand the treatment process.
The Juvederm Voluma Consultation
When you come into our office for your consultation, one of our expert providers will discuss your medical history and perform a full examination of your facial anatomy and overall skin health. After explaining the Juvederm Voluma procedure and discussing your aesthetic goals, your provider will create an individualized treatment plan that will meet your needs.
Juvederm Voluma XC Injections
During a Juvederm Voluma treatment session, your provider will make a series of injections to your cheek area. To ensure Voluma is evenly distributed, your provider may gently massage the treatment area. The number of injections you require to achieve optimal results will be determined by your provider. After treatment, ice may be applied to reduce swelling and redness.
As we age, facial tissues will begin to lose elasticity, causing the skin to sag. The natural fatty deposits under the eyes, along the cheeks, and toward the jawline may also start to disappear, causing the features to become sharp and sunken. These changes can make the face appear ‘hollow’, looking tired and unhealthy. However, a fast visit to MedSpa CA in San Ramon, can turn these early signs of aging around, resorting a refreshed, youthful appearance with dermal fillers like Radiesse.
Radiesse is a well trusted dermal filler, used to replace lost the lost facial volume that occurs with age. The thick, calcium based gel creates a foundation for the lower layers of facial tissue, raising and plumping the skin. Radiesse is also ideal for eliminating dark hollows under the eyes, creating more prominent cheek bones, filling in deep facial creases, and creating a more prominent chin/jawline. Radiesse is composed of a substance called Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA). These tiny microspheres of CaHA will improve the skin’s natural scaffolding, and provide long-term improvement in the skin’s appearance.
Eliminate dark hollows under the eyes
Create more prominent cheekbones
Fill in deep facial creases
Provide symmetry and shape to the jawline
The Ideal Radiesse Candidate
The perfect candidate for Radiesse can be anyone who wants to improve the signs of early aging, but does not want to commit to a surgical procedure. Patients should be in good health, show a clear understanding of the dermal filler process, and hold reasonable expectations for their upcoming results. To determine if Radiesse is the right treatment for an individual’s needs, a consultation appointment will be required prior to scheduling a treatment.
A treatment with Radiesse will take less than an hour in the MedSpa CA office; it is perfect for a ‘lunchtime lift’. A local anesthetic or dental block may be administered before the session, to increase a patient’s comfort level during the injections. The Radiesse is then applied to the predetermined areas of the skin with a very thin needle.
Results from Radiesse
The benefits of Radiesse are immediately noticeable. The skin will be lifted and smoothed, with improved shape and volume. In the coming weeks, as Radiesse encourages the body’s production of Collagen, the appearance will continue to improve. The benefits from Radiesse generally last between 18-24 months, sometimes longer. To maintain a youthful appearance, a repeat treatment can be performed as the results begin to fade.
Unfortunately, once the early signs of aging begin appear, they are not easily reversed. These can include fine lines, sagging skin, and a loss of facial volume. Sun damage, smoking, weight fluctuations, illness, and genetics work against us, as well, speeding up these tissue changes. The skin can start to loose collagen, decreasing the healthy fullness in the cheeks and jawline. Smile lines will start to appear, as do deep creases around the nose and the mouth. While there is no way to halt the normal aging process at home, MedSpa California can help slow things down with Restylane.
Restylane is an innovative dermal filler, designed to plump facial tissues and restore a youthful appearance. Restylane was the first dermal filler on the U.S. market to be made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a natural component of healthy human tissues. As an important structural building block in the skin, HA is responsible for ramping up the body’s collagen production. The HA also naturally draws in water from the body, plumping tissues for long-term benefits. A Restylane treatment provides immediate volumizing to the tissues, and while the body’s collagen stores are being rebuilt, the benefits from treatment can last for months. This unique family of dermal fillers includes Restylane, Restylane Silk, and Restylane Lyft; each is purposefully designed to treat specific areas of the face.
Restylane-L was the first of its dermal filler family to hit the market. It is used to fill in moderate to deep facial lines and wrinkles caused by the aging process. Restylane is best used to treat static wrinkles, or those resulting from lax tissues and skin. The injectable can dramatically improve the appearance of scars, either from acne or trauma to the face. Additionally, Restylane’s smooth and similarly sized particles of HA make it excellent for replacing lost facial volume under the eyes, across the upper cheek, and along the jawline.
The first product to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lip enhancement, Restylane Silk can safely and effectively restore a youthful shape to the mouth. The small particles of HA make Restylane Silk’s smooth, creamy gel perfect for meticulously filling in the delicate lines around the mouth. The benefits of Restylane Silk are unmatched by any other product. Natural-looking full lips provide a healthy, more youthful appearance.
The only injectable approved by the FDA to improve the both deep smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds, as well as replace lost volume in the cheeks is Restylane Lyft. Restylane Lyft can restore a healthy contour to the mid-face, enhancing hollow cheeks. With a single in-office application, patients can regain healthy cheek definition without surgery. Volume loss resulting from fat depletion and diminishing collagen can see an immediate improvement with Restylane Lyft.
As people age, their tissues can begin to lose elasticity and shape. This can eventually make the face look unhappy or angry, betraying how good someone may feel inside. On top of the natural increase in laxity, issues like stress, chemical exposure, weight fluctuations, and genetics can compound these wrinkles. While there are lots of over the counter products that claim to eliminate facial lines, none can actually make much difference. However, dermal fillers are a family of injectables designed to restore a youthful, lifted, taut look in just minutes. MedSpa CA has the newest filler on the market, Belotero, in our arsenal; we are ready to help patients win the war against wrinkles.
New to the world of dermal fillers, Belotero can significantly improve the appearance by eliminated fine lines around the mouth and eyes. Comprised of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Belotero will plump the existing tissues to even out facial creases. The filler will also replace lost volume under the eyes and along the cheeks. The shape and contours of healthy features can be restored after one treatment. While the benefits of Belotero are seen right away, as the body’s collagen supply is grows, the results will continue to improve.
Belotero can significantly improve:
The Ideal Candidate for Belotero
Anyone who is experiencing fine lines around the mouth or eyes, as well as hollow areas underneath the eyes and a loss of volume along the cheeks, can benefit from Belotero. The injectable is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. Patients in good health, who understand treatment with dermal fillers, and hold reasonable expectations for their results, can make an excellent candidate for treatment with Belotero. Patient with an active skin condition, such as pimples, rash, cysts, cold sores, and hives, should postpone their Belotero treatment until it has completely cleared.
The Belotero Consultation
Before scheduling a Belotero session, an initial consultation will be scheduled with one of the professionals at MedSpa CA. At this appointment, a brief exam of the skin and facial anatomy will be performed, and the patient’s medical history will be reviewed. The Belotero treatment process will be fully explained; the benefits and potential side effects will also be discussed. When Belotero is determined to be the right procedure for an individual patient, a unique treatment plan will be created.
A Belotero session will take less than 30 minutes in one of MedSpa CA’s luxurious patient rooms. Once the treatment area has been determined, the Belotero will be administered with a very small needle. The injections are not considered painful, although a topical or local anesthetic may be applied before treatment, to maximize patient comfort. No downtime is necessary after a Belotero treatment. That same afternoon, patients can return to work or school, as well as all other daily activities. Immediately after the injections, minor redness, swelling, and mild bruising may be seen throughout the treatment site.
One of the most common problems men and women notice with their appearance is the development of a double chin. Over time, this prominent layer of puffy tissue, below the jawline, can make the face look older and take away from the other, beautiful features. Also referred to as submental fat, the double chin can be the result of weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, and the normal aging process. Unfortunately, genetics can also play a large role in the development of a double chin, meaning that exercise and diet often do little to improve the area.
Until recently, the only successful way to improve the fullness of a double chin has been through liposuction. However, not everyone is ready to undergo a semi-invasive procedure. Luckily, a new alternative to liposuction is available at MedSpa CA: Kybella.
Kybella™ is an innovative, nonsurgical way to eliminate the double chin, dramatically improving the appearance and self-esteem, in a quick office visit. As the first and only injectable approved to eliminate unsightly submental fullness, the results from Kybella are unprecedented. Kybella™ is made from Deoxycholic Acid, a chemical naturally produced by the body, used to help absorb fats. When injected directly into the tissue under the chin, Kybella destroys the walls of fat cells. As this tissue slowly dissolves and is safely metabolized by the body, and the tissue under the chin bounces back to its sculpted appearance. The Kybella treatment can permanently restore a youthful, contoured chin.
The Kybella Consultation
Before beginning a Kybella treatment, a one-on-one consultation will be scheduled at MedSpa CA to determine if Kybella is an appropriate treatment option for you. At this time, a brief physical examination of the facial anatomy will be performed. The Kybella treatment will be explained in full; and the benefits and limitations will be reviewed. If Kybella is determined to be the right treatment for restoring smooth facial contours, a personalized treatment plan will be designed. At this time the number of Kybella treatment sessions required, and the exact cost, will be determined.
The Kybella Procedure
The Kybella treatment is performed in one of the MedSpa CA treatment rooms. During the consultation appointment, the target treatment area will be determined, as well as the number of sessions required for optimal results. Then, once the patient is comfortable, a series of tiny injections will be applied underneath the chin. The procedure may include up to 50 injections, depending on the degree of submental fatty tissue.
Results from Kybella
The benefits of Kybella can be seen in as few as one to two treatments; but for maximum benefit, up to six treatments may be recommended. Once the fat cells have begun to dissolve, the chin will slowly become smoother and more sculpted. As the injectable permanently destroys the fat cells in the treatment area, the results from Kybella are long lasting. Patients can enjoy the improvements without any further maintenance treatments.
