In the battle to restore your skin’s youthful look, Juvederm is an effective weapon to fight age lines and wrinkles and to fill in deep creases. Juvederm is a highly effective gel filler consisting of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced in the skin that can hold up to a thousand times its own weight in water. That added water creates the plump look of younger, more supple skin.
How Does the Procedure Work?
After discussing your needs and expectations, our staff will determine the proper injection sites that will best target the area in need of treatment. While most patients experience only slight discomfort during the injection itself, our staff will work to keep you as comfortable as possible with the treatment and can discuss anesthetic options with you prior to the procedure.
Who Can Use Juvederm?
Generally speaking, anyone in need of smoothing out wrinkles can use the fillers. While there can be some mild side-effects, such as redness, swelling, bruising or itchiness, they usually disappear within seven days. Patients with severe allergies should consult with our staff to determine if treatment is right for them.
Juvederm enhances the skin’s plumpness, thereby filling in wrinkles and age lines. The results typically last between nine months and one year. Touch up injections can extend those benefits further, with the injections only about half the amount of the original injection.For more information on how Juvederm can restore your skin’s youthful appearance, contact our offices.
Juvederm Voluma® corrects aging-related symptoms by adding volume to your cheeks, resulting in a more youthful-looking complexion. Shoreline Medical Offers this exciting injectible treatment as a non-surgical, minimally-invasive alternative in our large arsenal of aesthetic enhancement treatments that will reduce the signs of aging.
What Does Juvederm Voluma Do?
As your cheeks flatten over time, you lose your suppleness, which can make you appear older than you feel. Skin can sag as you lose your ability to produce collagen. This volume loss process in the cheek area is completely natural, and largely inevitable for most of us, but it doesn’t have to be set in stone. Juvederm Voluma is injected into targeted areas of the face, adding volume beneath your skin’s surface, adding contour to your features.
How Long Does Juvederm Voluma Last?
As opposed to common injectables that 9-12 months, Juvederm Voluma has been proven to last up to 18 months! When patients come back after their first injection after 2 years, they have been found to need less Juvederm Voluma product to achieve the previous results they’ve enjoyed.
Benefits of Juvederm Voluma
Juvederm Voluma corrects age-related volume loss in your cheek area. It also corrects the facial tissue and reduces moderate to severe sagginess. The procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive. It is possible you might experience some amount of tenderness, redness, bruising, or firmness that can be uncomfortable for 2-4 weeks, but there is no actual downtime, and you’ll be able to go about your life.
Contact Shoreline Medical Spa today to schedule your initial consultation. We’ll discuss with you how the Juvederm Voluma can benefit you along with your exciting array of prove-to-work injectables. Together we’ll help you achieve more youthful-looking contours and complexion.

Before performing the treatment, the doctor will select the optimal places for injection as well as sterilize and, occasionally, anesthetize the area being treated. Following that, the doctor determines the correct amount of Radiesse needed and then injects it beneath the dermis and subcutis layers of the skin.
Radiesse is highly effective, showing full results within a week, and the benefits generally last over a year. For more information on how Radiesse can help you, contact our offices right away.

More on Collagen
You hear the word a lot, but it helps to know what collagen is. Collagen is a key structural component of smooth, supple, healthy-looking skin. It’s a natural occurrence that, as you age, your body’s collagen production will decrease over time. It’s inevitable. Put it this way; you lose close to 1% of your collagen supply each year after you turn the age of 20. For some, this is the point where you might start noticing wrinkles. This is when you may start to notice the formation of wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic can help promote your body’s natural production of collagen, even after decades of loss.Sculptra delivers fantastic results. 80% of patients in a conducted study who underwent the treatment are still satisfied with their results 25 months after their procedure.
Kybella (Double Chin Treatment)
Shoreline Medical Spa specializes in Kybella treatments, a non-surgical alternative to diminishing unwanted fat. Excess submental fat in the head and neck area can create an out-of-shape, lethargic-looking appearance, even in patients who exercise regularly and are in otherwise good physical condition. This can cultivate body issues and diminish self-confidence. That’s where Kybella comes in.
The Only FDA-Approved Injectable of its Kind
Kybella is the one-and-only FDA-Approved injectable treatment that diminishes and destroys unwanted fat cells under the chin to contour your profile, to reverse the appearance of the dreaded double chin.
Factors that Lead to a Double Chin
A double chin can show its unwanted face as a result of several factors. Genetics, weight gain or weight change, and aging tend to be the main determiners of the structure of the chin. Strict exercise regimen and proper diet don’t always get the job done in this stubborn, elusive area. You can’t go to a gym and work out your chin, after all.
How Kybella Works
Kybella injections dissolve stubborn fat, restructuring, recontouring your profile, balancing out the rest of your facial features. Kybella has been rigorously tested, a clinically-proven option specially designed to assist in achieving patient’s beauty enhancement ambitions. Those who do not wish to undergo surgical treatment for submental fat (liposuction) can now choose Kybella as a non-surgical alternative.
What is Treatment Like?
In total, your in-office Kybella treatment will only take up 15 to 20 minutes of your time to perform by Shoreline Medical Spa. Number of injections required to achieve desired results will vary from case to case. Shoreline Medical Spa does treat any situation or procedure as a one-size-fits-all sort of scenario.You'll start to see results after an average of one to three Kybella treatment sessions, each treatment one month apart. In select cases, up to six treatment sessions are requred to reach desired results. After we've achieved the patient's desired degree of change, no more treatments will be necessary. After treatment, some patients have might experience a certain degree of bruising, swelling, or numbness, possibly even a combination of these side effects. However, symptoms are temporary and fade quickly.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
What is PRF?
PRF service offers an incomparable experience that is 100% natural. Using your own growth factors, and stem cells, new “younger” cells are generated while converting existing, dormant cells into more active anti-aging “warriors” functioning at optimal proficiency.
Known to be the second generation of PRP, the platelet-rich fibrin matrix obtained during your service, is made up of growth factors and stem cells, from your own blood. Drawn and centrifuged in a newer process, that is both highly efficient, and proprietary, PRF requires a very specific centrifuge system, that uses a slower, longer spinning process to separate the fibrin and growth factors from the red blood cells. This allows us to keep all active cells and growth factors intact for immediate use! Instantly the stem cell cascade effect is set in action.
PRF can be done as a standalone injection (with a cannula or a needle) or blended with a compatible hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. In most cases, the PRF will be administered without fillers, offering a 100% natural approach allowing the body’s own natural resource to support cellular regeneration and repair. PRF is beneficial in eliminating acne scars, minimizing pores and blemishes, improving disparities in complexion, smoothing uneven texture, and increasing tone.
With the cannula injection method, there is virtually no visible damage to the epidermis, while underneath, immediate activation of longer term release of the stem cell cascade stimulates keratinocytes that activate the production on new collagen and epidermal growth factors yielding the best anti-aging result from the cellular level.
Areas most popularly injected with PRF: tear troughs (under eyes), fine lines around lips, nasal labial folds, and marionette lines, in addition to supporting hair restoration for both men and women.
Immediately following the treatment, inflammation, redness and/or other discolorations are minimal, and usually resolve within 1-2 days.
The product can remain in the layers of the dermis for several days. Do not be discouraged if you love what you see on day 1 but it dissipates when swelling minimizes. As swelling subsides, the PRF matrix will work to build your own collagen in its place.
Follow up visits at 4-week intervals are highly suggested, at which point we can assess the skin’s condition and take photos to compare your results. PRF can have up to a 4-6 month benefit, from each treatment, which is twice the benefit you could get with standard PRP.
How Does PRF Differ From Traditional PRP (platelet-rich plasma)?
PRF is a second-generation version of PRP therapy. PRF has a higher concentration of platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells. In addition, PRF has a small percentage of stem cells, which cannot be found in traditional PRP. PRF is 100% natural with zero additives. The treatment works by forming a gel after 15 minutes to hold a nice form, which makes PRF especially effective when used in conjunction with a number of fillers, including:
Each of these fillers offers a unique benefit, depending on your preference and aesthetic goals. We recommend discussing facial filler and PRF treatments options with our doctors to create a customized plan for you.
