Botox Cosmetic is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. This relaxation lasts for a number of months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition.
Botox is a simple, FDA approved, physician administered treatment for temporary correction of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles (those caused by facial expressions).
Popular treatment areas include frown lines between the brows, horizontal lines on the forehead, and crow's feet around the eyes. When injected with a very fine needle into the area of concern, Botox causes the muscles to relax, giving the face a more youthful appearance.

Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Voluma XC
Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Voluma XC are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers. JUVÉDERM® XC may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas. From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
All of the cosmetic dermal fillers used at MED Spa of Virginia are FDA approved, non-animal, biodegradable gels, based on hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance found in human cells.
Commonly treated areas include the nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth) and "marionette lines" (the creases that run from the corners of your mouth to the bottom of your chin). Fillers are also often used to add volume to the lips and to effectively smooth away wrinkles around the mouth, as well as smooth out bags and wrinkles under the eyes.
Using a local anesthetic for your comfort, the gel is injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. The result is immediate and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement that is gentle and safe to your skin.
Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Voluma XC are long-lasting, but not permanent. Juvederm could last up to one year and Voluma XC usually lasts up to 2 years. Any of these treatments may be touched-up sooner to extend the results.
More than 27 million patients have been treated with dermal fillers safely and effectively. Side effects may include temporary bruising, localized swelling, infection or cold-sore like eruption at injection site. Rarely patients may have an allergic reaction.
