Get the lift you’ve been looking for with the dermal fillers. Injectable gels instantly smooth away facial wrinkles and folds with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that provides fullness and elasticity. Fillers may also be used for improving the malar (upper cheekbone area) and smoothing out the jaw line. As your skin’s own supply of hyaluronic acid begins to diminish, lines and folds begin to appear. The body loses a teaspoon full of volume each year after age 40. This is equivalent to 5 syringes of filler. Injectable gels such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm and Voluma correct this loss, improving facial wrinkles and folds with a clear natural gel that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid. The result is a fuller, younger looking appearance. All these injectables are available with added Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which will make the procedure more comfortable for the patient.
Botox and Dysport can help you look as young as you feel!
Botox (botulinum toxin A) and Dysport (abobutulinum toxin A) are FDA-approved nonsurgical facial injectables which temporarily reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Wrinkles of the glabella (vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows), forehead, and/or crow’s feet are most commonly treated with these injectables. Botox and Dysport block the actions of acetycholine, a neurotransmitter, reducing the activity of the injected muscles. This causes relaxation of the muscles responsible for the unwanted wrinkles.
All injectable treatments are performed by our plastic surgeon and dermatologist as well as our physician assistants. No two patients have exactly the same distribution or severity of wrinkles, so rather than following the manufacturer’s standardized chart of injection sites, our clinicians customizes the injection sites and dosages for each patient. He will mark and photograph the areas to be injected to make the results more consistent and reproducible with each subsequent visit.
In addition to Botox and Dysport, Acqua Blu Medical Spa offers a variety of dermal filler options including Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane which will complement your Botox or Dysport treatment.
When you visit our medical spa, our clinicians will discuss your specific concerns, outline the available procedures and help you decide whether Botox or Dysport is right for you. Clinicians will also show you a variety of “before and after” photos of patients who have had injections performed by our providers.

Results last 3-4 months. The procedure is easily repeatable, so you can always keep your youthful-looking results fresh.
