Provider Administered Services

 

 

McKenzie Family Medicine & MedSpa proudly offers medical grade aesthetic treatments as part of our mission to help you look and feel your best through total body health and wellness. All of our Botox®, Juvéderm®, Kybella® and aggressive nonsurgical treatments are performed only by our board certified physician Heather McKenzie M.D. and our board certified nurse practitioner Crissy Welch DNP, APRN, FNP-BC.

 

Botox®

 

Botox®, onabotulinumtoxin A, is used to relax the muscles around the eyes and the forehead to allow the skin folds to flatten providing younger appearing skin. Botox® treatments are very simple and safe. Botox® is injected into the muscles around the eyes using a small needle which is almost painless. Topical numbing medication can be applied first if desired for a more comfortable experience. Botox® gradually starts to relax the muscle within the first few days and will last 3 to 4 months. We encourage you to follow up with us after the first 2 weeks to make sure that you are happy with your treatment and results. To achieve optimal results we encourage you to re-inject the Botox® before the effect is completely worn off and recommend having it done every 3 months. As with all of our treatments at McKenzie Family Medicine & MedSpa the consultation process is very important as you will work with your provider to develop the best treatment plan for YOU.

 

Botox® is measured in units. The frown lines between the eyes (glabella) typically take between 20 and 25 units. Crow’s feet, the lines around the eyes, commonly will take between 12 and 15 units per side. Wrinkles across the forehead will require between 10 to 20 units. Eyebrow lift requires around 5 units. Bunny lines typically require up to 10 units. Gummy smiles commonly require 4-6 units per side. Lip flip commonly requires 8-12 units. Nefertiti neck lift commonly takes between 40 and 60 units.  There are many other areas where Botox® can be used to help contour and define your facial features. Your initial provider consultation will help direct you in determining the amount of Botox® needed to obtain your desired results.

 

Juvéderm® Collection of Fillers

 

The Juvéderm®collection of fillers is the #1 provider chosen dermal filler in the United States. There are multiple different types of Juvéderm®, each containing Hyaluronic Acid, and each being specially designed to address all of your different individual needs.

 

Juvéderm® Voluma® XC

 

The typical youthful cheek follows the shape of an ogee curve. With age, the curve starts to flatten and the cheeks sag. Juvéderm® Voluma® XC was the first FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area in people over the age of 21. Additionally, Juvéderm® Voluma® XC was the first FDA-approved filler for chin augmentation to improve the chin profile in adults over the age of 21.

 

  • Gives a subtle lift to cheek and midface
  • Helps restore contour for up to 2 years
  • Look up to 5 years younger
  • Non surgical chin augmentation
  • Contains a modified hyaluronic acid (HA), derived from a naturally occurring complex sugar

 

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.

 

Juvéderm® Vollure® XC

 

Over time, your skin loses elasticity, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses, lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Juvéderm® Vollure® XC softens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance in adults 21 and over.

Diminishes the appearance of moderate to severe smile/laugh lines and wrinkles  (nasolabial folds)

Helps restore volume for up to 18 months

Contains Lidocaine gel to improve the comfort of the injection

 

Juvéderm® Volbella® XC

 

Juvéderm® Volbella® XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines in adults over the age of 21. Juvéderm® Volbella® is also indicated for treatment of under eye hollows in adults over the age of 21.

 

  • Diminishes vertical lip lines (a.k.a. smoker's lines)
  • Accentuates the border of your lips
  • Plumps up your lips to make them fuller
  • Enhances the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip)
  • Adds volume to the under eye hollow and smooths the transition from the cheeks to the eyes

 

Juvéderm® Ultra® XC

 

Juvéderm® Ultra® XC is a dermal filler that smooths away deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth and is used to smooth smile lines (parentheses), Marionette lines and vertical lines around the lips. Juvéderm® Ultra®  XC is also used for lip augmentation by adding  projection and volume directly into the lips.

 

  • Diminishes the appearance of moderate to severe smile/laugh lines and wrinkles  (nasolabial folds)
  • Plumps the lips by adding volume, definition and projection

 

Kybella® Double Chin Treatment

 

Kybella is the first FDA approved non-surgical injectable that reduces the excess fat accumulation under the chin and neck area. It’s a minimally invasive, safe and effective non-surgical treatment that provides long lasting results with minimal side effects.

 

Kybella is an injectable that includes a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid that’s found in the body. Kybella is injected under the chin to melt these fat cells, thus improving your appearance and profile of the area while eliminating fat cells from the body. Once destroyed, these fat cells are no longer able to store or accumulate fat. After your series of treatments (typically 2), the results are permanent. Fat cells removed from under the chin area with Kybella will not return. Kybella takes 2-3 vials based off the size of the area. Results are seen within TWO WEEKS and appearance continues to improve for up to 6 months.

 

Thread Lift (learn more)

 

Sagging skin is one of the most common complaints in our medspa and one of the most visible signs of aging. The PDO thread lift procedure is one of the most effective, minimally invasive ways to lift, tighten, sculpt and contour your problem areas.

What are PDO Threads?

 

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are ultra thin medical grade sutures that were developed in the 1970s. Research has shown that PDO relaxes muscles and tendons while the body's natural foreign body reaction causes increased blood flow and oxygen to the treatment area stimulating the production of new collagen in the tissues by a process called neocollagenesis. PDO threads have also been shown to stimulate Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid production. Collagen and elastin are responsible for the skin's tensile strength and elasticity while Hyaluronic Acid adds moisture and plumpness to the skin for a more youthful appearance.

 

There are many brands and types of PDO threads available on the market. We use only Miracu® PDO threads which are on the only threads on the market that are FDA cleared for both the thread and the thread delivery method. The PDO thread procedure enhances the immediate results from Botox® and Juvéderm® as well as stimulates collagen for visible results lasting up to 24 months.

 

Types of Miracu® PDO Threads

 

  • Collagen Building only Threads - These are commonly referred to as "Mono" threads and are excellent to use in the lips, marionette lines and nasolabial folds. This is a "delayed gratification" treatment that builds collagen over time. These threads have minimal downtime.
  • Lifting & Collagen Building Threads - These are the immediate gratification threads! You will see the lifting of the face at the time of the treatment. This is best used in the mid face, lower face, neck and brow. These threads are more intense and will require some adjustments to your daily regimen for 2-3 weeks while the body adjusts to the threads.

 

Physics of PDO Threads

 

It's all about the Vectors! Threading really puts physics into action. Each client will be assessed throughout the process to make sure that each thread is placed at an angle that maximizes the lifting and collagen production.

 

SkinPen® Microneedling

 

The SkinPen® is an FDA-cleared microneedling device that produces controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s collagen and elastin production,  This natural wound-healing process results in improvement in visible fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and overall skin tone and texture. This treatment works to remodel your skin from the inside out, uncovering your best skin so you’ll love the skin you’re in! The proof is in the pen, just check out all the SkinPen awards below! Visit the SkinPen® website for more information.

 

PRP & PRFM

 

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is the platelet concentrated portion of your blood that is rich in growth factor proteins. Platelets are part of the blood that bind together when they recognize damage further releasing growth factors, a process that is thought to stimulate the body’s healing and tissue regeneration process. This process helps rebuild the collagen network that is crucial for healthy skin texture and elasticity. Check out the Selphyl® website for more information.

 

Microneedling with PRP – After a quick blood draw using a small butterfly needle, your blood is placed into a centrifuge which spins the blood rapidly causing separation of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and red blood cells. The PRP is then applied to the area being treated and the microchannels created during microneedling allow the PRP to penetrate deep into the skin which results in enhanced collagen boosting and ultimately more smooth, plump and tight skin.

 

PRP Facial Injections – PRP is injected into the areas of the face which show signs of volume loss and aging. PRP may be injected along with hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvéderm®.

 

PRP for Hair Loss – PRP is injected into the areas of the scalp where hair loss has occurred. This helps to repair damaged follicles and stimulate the follicles to produce new hair growth.

Laser Hair Removal

 

Laser hair removal is the use of laser energy to produce hair removal. The laser produces heat that is absorbed by the pigment, or melanin, in the hair. That heat penetrates the hair follicle, which causes the follicle to become disabled. Damaged hair follicles have difficulty growing hair again which results in the hairless skin which clients are seeking. The hair grows in 3 different phases and only 20-30% of the hair is visible at one time therefore multiple treatments are required. Six treatments are recommended in four week cycles.

 

Skin Rejuvenation (Brown Pigment)

 

Skin rejuvenation treatments are recommended to remove unwanted benign pigmented lesions. We treat brown spots such as those caused by sun damaged skin and age spots. Skin rejuvenation uses the laser to target the melanin (brown pigment) cells in the skin to remove the appearance of aging and/or sun damage to the skin. Once the treatment is completed the body will naturally remove unwanted sun spots and improve aging skin. Skin rejuvenation treatments can be performed on the face, neck, hands, back, legs and the chest areas and may require multiple treatments. 1-2 treatments are recommended.

 

Laser Vein Removal

 

Laser vein removal uses the laser to remove unwanted small vascular lesions such as spider veins, telangiectasias, venous lakes, hemangiomas and port wine stains. Spider veins and telangiectasias are those small red, purple, and bluish vessels that appear on the cheeks, chin, nose and legs. Laser vein removal treatments use the laser to target the unwanted vessels and seal them off where they dissolve which makes these unwanted vessels no longer visible on the skin. It is recommended that clients schedule multiple treatments to achieve optimal results and if applicable to you this will be discussed in your initial consultation. Laser vein removal treatments are performed in 15 minute and 30 minute time blocks. 1-2 treatments are recommended.

 

Skin Tightening

 

Skin tightening is recommended to treat wrinkles and skin laxity. Skin tightening treatments activate the collagen using heat without causing any damage to the skin. It heats the inner layer of the skin which stimulates collagen and results in younger and tighter skin. Skin tightening treatments are recommended on the face, neck and decollete.  During your initial consultation we  will work with you to identify your areas of concern and discuss areas amenable to skin tightening specific to you. Because visible skin tightening requires your collagen to activate it can take up to 6 months for optimal results, however you will notice some immediate results with the reduction of wrinkles. Treatments are done every 4 weeks. Number of treatments vary depending on your individual starting canvas and desired results.

 

Laser Wrinkle Reduction

 

A non-ablative, noninvasive treatment of facial lines and wrinkles without the long recovery time of ablative treatments. Non-ablative lasers selectively damage and remodel the dermis, which is responsible for collagen production, to improve the skin's appearance while avoiding injury to the epidermis. This allows for effective treatment without interruption of everyday life or social engagements.

 

Dermaplane

 

Dermaplaning is a simple & painless procedure to exfoliate skin using a blade to scrape the dead cells (and "peach fuzz") that build up on the face or any part of the body. Exfoliation helps increase efficacy and penetration of topical products and the production of new, healthier skin cells. It stimulates collagen production that slows with time or sometimes even stops when a skincare regimen is neglected. NO DOWNTIME is needed after treatment and you'll notice a smoother, brighter complexion immediately. This is great for those with thin, fragile skin or severe rosacea skin when microdermabrasion cannot be performed due to it requiring suction with a hand piece. It has the same benefits as microdermabrasion but caters to a wider group of skin types and conditions.

 

DiamondGlow® (more information)

 

The DiamondGlow® treatment is a noninvasive skin-resurfacing treatment that uses a unique diamond tip wand to exfoliate, extract and infuse the skin. This treatment gently removes the outer layers of dead skin while simultaneously extracting impurities and debris from your pores and infusing your skin with nourishing SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums. There are multiple diamond tips to choose from, each designed for a specific skin type, texture and location. You will work with our aesthetician to decide while serum is best to target your specific skin care needs.
