( Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a purified protein that is administered in a non-surgical procedure to temporarily reduce mild to severe wrinkles in people ages 18 to 70+. Botox Cosmetic is most commonly used for wrinkles and folds in the upper third of the face, including the forehead, between the eyebrows (frown lines), and around the eyes (crow’s feet lines). It is also used in and around the lips to improve shape and reduce vertical lip lines, in the chin to improve texture and smoothness, to help up the corners of the mouth, as well as to reduce lines along the sides of the mouth. Often called a lunchtime procedure, treatment is brief and requires minimal recovery. Visible results may appear within 1 to 2 days and have been shown to last up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.
Have you heard of Hyaluronic Acid (HA)? This naturally occurring molecule found throughout the body has a primary function of supporting and hydrating the skin. As we age, the HA in our body decreases and the volume in our face is lost. Juvederm, an injectable filler solution, is made of HA and restores the HA in our skin.
Here at Body by Design Aesthetics, we use Juvederm products for our dermal fillers. Most filler treatments take approximately 15 minutes and are done by using a fine needle used to inject gel into the treatment area. Results last an average of 6-12 months, depending on type of filler used and client metabolism. We apply a lidocaine/tetracaine topical numbing ointment before each treatment to minimize any discomfort and use products that are formulated with lidocaine to keep our clients completely comfortable.
Juvederm is ideal for the following areas:
Lips - to add volume and smooth lines around lips
Cheeks - to add volume, smooth, and lift sagging skin
Smile lines – to smooth the vertical lines running from nose to mouth
Marionette lines – to smooth the vertical lines/folds that run from mouth down towards the jaw
Vertical lip lines – to smooth the lines directly above the lip that can occur from ordinary muscle movement, excessive smoking or exposure to sun
We don’t expect you to know the amount or exact subtype of Juvederm to use. Our certified nurse injectors are experts when it comes to dermal fillers and can offer you advice as to what they believe is best.
*One of the benefits of using a hyaluronic acid filler is that it’s reversible and can be dissolved if for some reason you are unhappy with your results.
Kybella is a (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” This is a permanent treatment that prevents fat from ever returning to the treated area.

Dermaplaning is a simple procedure that is safe and effective for exfoliating the skin and thereby freeing facial areas of fine vellus hair (aka “peach fuzz”). Though dermaplaning has been been used for several years, many estheticians are still unaware of its existence and its effectiveness. Dermaplaning is quite unique and distinct from dermabrasion, which is the removal of superficial layers of skin with a rapidly revolving abrasive tool. Dermaplaning is a simple shaving of the epidermis, and is not associated with infections and/or scarring.
Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has become very popular among men and (particularly) women across the United States. The procedure usually involves only a scalpel and delicate touch and is ideal for women who are pregnant or nursing and are not allowed to make use of peeling agents due to the chemicals involved.
Some have expressed concern that their peach fuzz will grow back after the dermaplaning. However, this concern has been dispelled and has been shown to be merely an “old wives’ tale”. The vellus hair is superficial and will grow back at the same rate and texture as before.
