INJECTABLES

Give the Gift of Beauty This Holiday Season

Are you looking for a different sort of a gift for that special person this holiday season? How about some pampering time, for you and your bestie? Choose one or more treatment, such as an injectable, and make an appointment for the two of you at Amara Medical Aesthetics!

Here are just a few treatments to choose from:

Injectables

Injectables give a refreshed, youthful look by preventing fine lines, with no downtime needed. There are many injectables to choose from, such as Juvederm, which adds volume to the lips, nasolabial folds, and tear troughs, or Xeomin, an excellent alternative to Botox that removes frown lines.

Facials

Amara offers medical-grade facials, which provide a deep cleaning of the skin, scrubbing the pores and getting rid of old, dead skin. You and your friend will walk away with healthier, younger, rejuvenated skin.

Spectra Peels

A Spectra peel helps to repair skin that has been damaged from acne or skin disease. It also gets rid of wrinkles and fine lines and evens out skin texture.

Microneedling

The microneedle used in this procedure creates a tiny wound, which stimulates new skin to grow. Microneedling helps to tighten skin, removes scars and wrinkles, and diminishes skin discoloration.

Waxing

It may not be bikini weather yet, but who can feel beautiful when you have unwanted body hair? Waxing lasts longer than shaving, can remove large amounts of hair at once, and even helps to exfoliate the skin.

Tinting

Tinting eyelashes and eyebrows with a color that complements your skin and hair can give your eyes, and your face, a whole new look. It gives volume to your eyebrows and eyelashes and means less time spent applying mascara and eyebrow pencil. The procedure only takes a half an hour and will last a month.

It can be difficult to find just the right gift for someone that is special to you. Treating a friend to one (or more) of the spa treatments available at Amara Medical Aesthetics in Bellevue, Washington, makes for a great gift, one they won’t forget! Call (425) 278-9233, and make appointments for you both!

Tired of looking tired? Smooth out those lines in no time

Cosmetic injectables are extremely popular with men and women alike because they offer a non-surgical alternative to a facelift or eyelid lift, with zero downtime. If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge into injectables to smooth out your fine lines and wrinkles, read on to learn more about the various injectables and how they treat different types of wrinkles.

Dynamic wrinkles

The most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment around is Botox, and that’s because it’s a safe and effective way to smooth out or minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face. Botox is effective on wrinkles that form from repeated muscle contractions under the skin when you frown, squint or raise your eyebrows. These are called dynamic wrinkles. Botox temporarily reduces the muscle activity to stop wrinkles from forming.

Botox is the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet and forehead lines. Treatment takes about 10 minutes, and you’ll see results within 24 to 48 hours. Results are subtle as you’ll look like yourself but without the noticeable facial lines.

Static wrinkles

Botox is not effective on all types of wrinkles, and that’s when dermal fillers come into play. While Botox is effective on dynamic wrinkles, dermal fillers tackle static wrinkles. These are wrinkles that are always present, unlike dynamic wrinkles. But dynamic wrinkles can become static wrinkles over time. Static wrinkles result from the loss of skin elasticity and the decrease of underlying proteins. Aging is the primary reason for these wrinkles, but genetics, sun and environmental damage and lifestyle contribute as well.

There are many dermal fillers that can address all kinds of fine lines and wrinkles as well as volume loss in the face. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in the skin. When it bonds to water molecules, it helps plump or “fill” the skin, adding volume and softness to your appearance. Sculptra is another filler that works by stimulating your skin’s natural collagen production to restore the inner structure and increase volume over time. The results from dermal fillers are immediate and can last anywhere from a few months to a few years.

Cosmetic injectables are increasingly popular treatments used on their own or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures to give you the youthful appearance you desire. To schedule a complimentary consultation, call 425-278-9233 today.
