INJECTABLES AND FILLERS
Botox® Cosmetic is the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed for the temporary correction of certain facial wrinkles. Administered through a series of small intramuscular injections, Botox is a purified protein that inhibits muscle movement and reduces the activity of the muscles that cause specific wrinkles.
Most patients receive Botox to treat:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
- Forehead lines
- “Pin Cushion” chin
- Smoker’s Lines
- Vertical Neck Cords
Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable designed to destroy fat cells under the chin (“double chin”) and offer a more defined jawline. Also known as sub-mental fullness, this condition can affect both men and women. The most common factors include age, weight gain, and genetics. In most cases, diet and exercise alone will not get rid of these fat cells under the chin.
Through a quick series of tiny injections, Kybella (comprised of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body) will start to tear down the walls of targeted fat cells allowing them to be safely absorbed and eliminated through the body’s natural inflammatory process. Over the next several months a tight, smooth and youthful looking jawline will emerge.
It is recommended that most patients go through a series of two to four treatments, four to six weeks apart, in order to see the best results. Once the desired results have been obtained, most patients do not need additional treatments.
Juvederm® is the world’s leading dermal filler comprised of a naturally occurring substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). As an important building block of the skin’s structure, HA draws moisture into the tissues, adding volume, hydration, and easing out wrinkles. Over time as we age, the HA in our skin is reduced due to sunlight and other factors. This causes our skin to lose volume, structure, and create unwanted wrinkles and creases.
Juvederm can significantly improve:
- Fine lines
- Deep facial creases
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
- Volume loss in cheeks
- Volume loss across jawline
It is also used to restore fullness to the lips.
The results of Juvederm injections are immediate. As the filler triggers the production of Collagen, these benefits will continue to improve over time. There are several types of Juvederm available. Each is unique in its viscosity (thickness and consistency). G Spa offers Juvederm Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, and Voluma XC. All injections are formulated with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to help with any potential discomfort from the treatment. Patients typically see immediate results and enjoy a rejuvenate appearance for up to one year.

The “light” version of Juvederm, Ultra XC is a gel-like product consisting of hyaluronic acid (HA). Instantly adding volume and smoothing away wrinkles and folds, it is injected under the skin. Juvederm Ultra XC is perfect for contouring and treating fine lines, wrinkles, and folds.

The “heavier” version of Juvederm, Voluma XC is the first and only filler FDA-approved Hyaluranic Acid (HA) injectable gel designed to help restore tissue volume and shape in the cheek area. Over time, skin may begin to sag and volume within the face flatten. Juvederm Voluma XC offers a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile. Voluma is clinically proven to last up to two years.
