BOTOX CosmeticThe use of Botox cosmetic is now one of the world’s most commonly performed cosmetic dermatology procedures. It is also one of the safest, most effective & easiest to administer cosmetic treatments available. BOTOX Cosmetic in Austin & the rest of the world, helps millions of people around the world eliminate unwanted lines & wrinkles. People in Austin are very animated. We live large & squint at the sun. Animation lines & wrinkles can appear from facial expression especially on foreheads, between their eyes & around the outside corners of their eyes. BOTOX Cosmetic decreases the damaging muscle movements while allowing you to be very expressive. Most of us don’t realize that we have over 100 muscles on our face, by just shutting down a few of those muscles you dramatically decrease lines & wrinkles.
Chemical PeelsGenerally speaking, chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth the texture, reduce scarring, & remove blemishes. The final product will be a healthy, glowing, youthful & dewey complexion. There are many types of chemical peels, ranging from mild to strong – alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), tricholoroacetic acid (TCA), malic acids, combination acids, salicylic acids, phenols & others. The formula strengths are tailored to meet each patients needs. Patients in Austin & other sunny areas must be careful about post-care instruction & timing to avoid exposing the skin to the harmful effects of sun rays.
Cool Lipo Laser LiposuctionA revolutionary development in the field of body sculpting has occurred, laser liposuction. A laser is used to reduce the fat cells & is less invasive than traditional liposuction. The Austin cool lipo Laser is different than other methods of laser liposuction in that it has a dual mode. One mode is for liposuction & one for tightening. With the lipo mode, the laser liquefies the fat & the fat can be removed or just be absorbed into the body. You certainly get some tightening of the tissues but using the tightening mode after the lipo will tighten the skin even more.
FacialsEvery woman longs for that healthy, glowing look, the kind of skin that radiates w/ youth & vitality & lights up a room every time she walks into it. Our face is the first thing people notice about us & can make a big impression on the people we meet & interact w/ on a daily basis. A beautiful complexion makes us appear healthy & attractive, whereas a dull, ashen complexion can make us look tired & haggard. The look of radiant, healthy skin can be attributed to a variety of elements. Healthy, youthful-looking skin is evenly pigmented w/ a very smooth, velvety texture. This idyllic skin is plump & dewy, & pores are so small they are practically undetectable. The color of the complexion is also vibrant & bright. All of these components make for skin that is so flawless it doesn’t even need a drop of makeup. Sound too good to be true? It’s not!
Fat TransferIn America, & in a fitness-enthused city like Austin, there tends to be this pervasive fear of fat. Our culture has all but waged full open war against this formidable opponent. Constantly on a seek-and-destroy mission for this hated enemy, it’s easy to forget that well, not all fat is bad. When it comes to the face, fat is actually what creates that coveted look of youth & vitality.

Laser Hair Removal

Podiatrists & dermatologists see more cases of fungal infected toenails than just about anything else. At Aesthetica MedSpa, we provide a new technology in toenail fungus removal, known as laser nail fungus treatment.
Laser Tattoo RemovalAt some point in our lives, just about everybody changes their look or tries out a new style to set them apart from the rest of the crowd. But at least your green hair phase or that extreme affinity for body piercings you had that one year can be reversed & the pictures can be burned. But what happens when you get a tattoo that seemed like a really great idea at the time, but a couple years down the road, well, you realize you aren’t as big of a diehard Jonas Brothers fan as you once thought you were. Hair & skin grow back… but ink, that lasts forever.

These treatments work very well on blondes or redheads that would like to have their eyelashes stand out. We offer a variety of medical grade products. We offer complementary consultations in our two AUstin locations where we can customize a skin care regimen for you w/ products and/or treatments.
Lip AugmentationWhen we think of the tell-tale signs of facial aging, we usually think of things like fine lines, wrinkles & sagging facial tissues. While crow’s feet, under-eye bags, uneven skin pigmentation & drooping jowls are all some of the first indicators that may pop into our heads, have you ever thought about the role your lips play in giving away your age? Few people do, but as we age, our lips begin to lose volume & once we reach our mid thirties, they begin to deflate much like a balloon w/ each passing year. Full, plump lips that are soft & supple are a principal indicator of youthfulness & beauty. As we age, lips begin to thin & essentially wilt, losing projection & that desired pouty look. Since the lips play a big role in visually expressing emotion, lips that are thin & deflated can have the unwanted effect of making our expressions appear hard & stern.
Medical Grade ProductsBy FDA law & regulation, there are ingredients in doctor’s office, skin care products that are not available in your local, over-the-counter (OTC) skin care products from your pharmacy or department store. Many of the products you obtain at a cosmetic dermatology office or medical spa, operated by a physician, are actually closer to medications. They may have a higher content of a particular product that you might find OTC, theoretically making it more effective. Often, these products are even lower in price than many department store products.
MicrodermabrasionMicrodermabrasion improves mild to moderate sun damage, scarring, wrinkles & other superficial skin problems. A gentle stream of tiny particles exfoliates the outer layer of skin & provides a fresh, glowing, younger appearance. The particles scrape away the surface layer of aging or damaged skin, which is then brushed off w/ the microdermabrasion vacuum tool w/ no need for anesthesia. Only a small amount of skin is removed, so sensitive areas such as the face, chest, neck, arms & hands can be treated. Results are comparable to a light chemical peel & should be immediately visible. Microdermabrasion is often performed in conjunction w/ other skin renewal procedures, such as laser treatment & chemical peels. Multiple treatments are recommended for full effect.
Obagi Blue PeelThe Blue peel is an excellent chemical peel used in combination w/ the obagi Nu-Derm restoration system for clear, smooth, healthy skin. During the peel process, the damaged surface layer of skin is removed, & soon it is replaced w/ a fresh layer that is smoother, well-toned, more even in color, & has smaller pores. The Blue Peel offers benefits over other Austin chemical peeling methods because it allows the physician to control many aspects of the process, including the depth of penetration, so treatments can be tailored to the individual patient. On average two to three peels are required to achieve full skin health.
Obagi Product UsageObagi product usage can help anyone w/ dark areas on the face in as little as two to three months. The products penetrate below the skin’s surface to correct damage in all layers of the skin. It corrects functions of the skin at the cellular level helping it to look & act younger & healthier.
Permanent Make - UpMicropigmentation, or permanent makeup, can improve a person’s appearance in a variety of ways, from eyebrow, eyelash & lip enhancement to scar & blemish camouflage. FDA-approved, allergy-tested dyes are made of mineral extracts & can be tinted to match the patient’s skin tone as closely as possible.
Photo FacialPhotoFacial™ is a non-ablative & non-invasive treatment that rejuvenates your skin using the remarkable new technology of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL PhotoFacials can improve the signs of sun damage, rosacea, & brown spots on the face, hands & body. It has also been used to reduce the appearance of mild acne scars, dark circles around the eyes & fine lines around the eyes & mouth. PhotoFacials are considered the new non-invasive face lift in Austin.
Professional Make - OversWe offer Austin professional makeovers w/ glo minerals makeup. One of our aestheticians will color match your skin type & instruct you on how to apply the makeup.
RadiesseOur Austin Radiesse treatments give patients an immediate revitalized & youthful appearance by restoring facial volume & smoothing out those telltale signs of aging. When we’re first born, our skin is soft, smooth & possesses an almost silk-like texture. At this time in our lives our skin is flawless, but over time, as we are exposed to years of sun, stress & other environmental factors, our complexion begins to lose its vigorous appearance & is gradually replaced by blotchy, discolored skin that is marred by wrinkles & fine lines.
RestylaneRestylane is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips & shape facial contours. It is a clear, synthetic gel made w/ hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It carries little risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for treatment are the lips, the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) & the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth). With its unique ability to bind w/ water, Restylane remains in your skin for many months.
Silhouette ThreadliftFor patients who desire a younger, more lifted appearance of the face, neck, & brow without undergoing a facelift or brow lift, a new minimally invasive procedure is available. FDA-approved silhouette sutures are thin, flexible sutures that are threaded underneath the skin to rejuvenate sagging foreheads, eyebrows & cheeks. When the threads are gently pulled, tiny absorbable cones & knots lift the sagging tissue into a subtly higher, more youthful position that reflects the patient’s natural facial contours. The sutures are left in place to maintain the effects, which are further enhanced & supported over time as the body produces natural collagen & elastin fibers around the threads. An Austin Silhouette Threadlift takes about an hour under local anesthesia.
Stretch MarksAustin loves the outdoors, but unsightly stretch marks can restrict your choices of clothing. Stretch marks are usually a result of a time of rapid growth, weight gain, pregnancy or even weight lifting & the increased muscle mass that accompanies that sport. At their core, stretch marks are really scar tissue where collagen has weakened, almost like frayed or worn fabric. In order to improve most stretch marks, you must first help improve the quality of the skin. There are two products on the market w/ merit. First, StriaeT by procyte Corporation has shown an overall 80% improvement in clinical observation. Also, Stri-Vectin-SD has shown excellent results for the improvement of stretch marks. Don’t expect perfection! These products only help.
Vampire FaceliftAccording to folklore (and Hollywood), vampires never age. Unfortunately for us mortals… we do. As the years pass, we start to lose collagen – a protein found naturally in our bodies that keeps our skin firm & flexible. This deterioration of collagen causes the face to begin to lose volume & sag. As time progresses, this collapse of collagen & muscles in the face can also make a person’s cheeks look flat & the eyes appear hollow. The skin may also begin to lose its youthful rosy color & instead take on a dull, gray tint. The cumulative effects of facial aging can cause an individual to look tired & worn out, even when they feel completely rested & energized.
