3 Things You Need to Know About Getting Injectables for the First Time

As an up-and-coming popular choice, injectables are both easy and effective. They don’t take much time, which is very appealing to most with busy schedules to manage who want smoother and younger-looking skin. Acqua Blu Medical Spa’s spa services in Pittsburgh, PA, cover many different injectables to provide ideal, non-surgical and non-invasive results.

  1. Decide which injectable is right for you.
    With so many options out there, it can be hard to figure out which one to choose. Some address different concerns than others and thus yield different results. For example, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines are treated with neurotoxins like Dysport or our Botox injections near Morgantown, West Virginia; whereas, hyaluronic fillers are great for aging skin to restore plumpness and moisture. Additionally, Juvéderm and other gels take care of lines around your mouth and nose.If you’re having trouble deciding, don’t hesitate to ask us for help! Our consultation will ensure that you are matched up with the right injectable for the look you want.
  2. Select the right medical center for the procedure.
    Aside from making sure the doctor is certified, it is also important to make sure they have the experience and the track record to make you feel comfortable. Before and after pictures go a long way and give a realistic depiction on what to expect. See below!pic11pic22
  3. Know that injectables are not once and done.
    All injectables eventually wear off; depending on the type, they can last anywhere from 4 months to 2 years. It is important to plan ahead for another treatment to keep up your youthful appearance.
  4. Follow the doctor’s directions.
    Before and after your injectable procedure it is important to follow the instructions you are provided to ensure a smooth treatment. It is also beneficial to not plan any big events directly following the procedure; give yourself a week. There can be swelling or bruising even immediately following the procedure, so you may want to let the filler fully set in.

Just in Time to Get Rid of Those Sunspots From Summer: Photofacials FAQ

First off, what is a Photofacial?

As an all-new, revolutionary skin rejuvenating procedure, Photofacial uses innovative broadband light technology to target select blood vessels and pigments beneath the surface of the skin while leaving the upper layer of skin cells untouched. Because of this, damage is reduced significantly without affecting the results.

Who is a candidate for a Photofacial?

Those who have discolored skin from:

  • Sunspots

  • Rosacea

  • Brown spots

  • Injured blood vessels

And those who have large pores, other skin conditions, or poorly textured skin can all benefit from this treatment. We recommended that you make a consultation appointment for our spa services in Pittsburgh, PA, to decide if this is the right procedure for you.

Is it painful?

We apply cooling gel to the skin before your Photofacial treatment to minimize discomfort and cool the skin surface.

How long until I see results and will they last?

It takes about 3-5 separate monthly treatments before results become visible. Once the results are clear, how long it lasts fully depends on the amount of sun exposure you endure. Sunscreen and staying out of the sun is a necessity for long-lasting results.

Give us a call today at 724-933-1800 to schedule your Photofacial treatment. We also offer complimentary consultation in Wexford and Pittsburgh for those who wish to learn more about this unique treatment. If you are looking for Botox near Morgantown, West Virginia, you can also schedule your consultation with us!

What is the Perfect First Time Peel?

At Acqua Blu Medical Spa, we recommend the PCA Sensi Peel for virtually anyone who is looking for a peel who has never gotten one before.

What is the PCA Sensi Peel?

This peel is a low-dose, minimally invasive treatment, which provides amazing benefits for your skin.

What is the PCA Sensi Peel Made of?

It is made of a unique blend of active acids, including:

  • TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid)
  • Lactic Acid
  • Azelaic Acid
  • Kojic Acid
  • Arbutin

All of these work synergistically to exfoliate, hydrate, and even out your skintone.

Is this Peel Safe?

Yes! The PCA Sensi Peel is safe for all skin types and conditions.

What Conditions Does the PCA Sensi Peel Treat?

The formulation includes many skin brighteners, treating conditions, such as:

  • Aging
  • Acne
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea

If the PCA Sensi Peel seems like a good option for you, know that depending on your skin’s needs, your treatment can also be advanced, if necessary, to a more aggressive approach.

As the aging process occurs, our skin cell’s natural exfoliation process slows down, requiring some assistance. By receiving regular peels every two to six weeks, you will ultimately help your skin be the best that it can be.

Consider scheduling a complimentary consultation with Acqua Blu Medical Spa to learn more about what we can do to help you. Please call: 724-933-1800 for more details or to learn about our other services, like our laser hair removal in Pittsburgh, PA.
