Hi I’m Lauren! I’m a Physician Assistant and cosmetic injector at LUX Med Spa.
Whether you’re interested in getting rid of your wrinkles or preventing wrinkles, Botox may be what you’re looking for. Botox is an injectable that temporarily inactivates muscle movement. One common area, is the are in between your brows termed the glabella. The area we call the glabella is made up of the corrugator and procerus muscles. When you activate these muscles, you likely form the “11s” or you may just for a single 1. This area is easily treated with Botox and I typically recommend anywhere from 16-25 units depending on how you activate these muscles. It usually takes about 3-7 days to kick in and lasts about 3-4 months. Come in and make it your goal to lose your frown lines in February!

Hi! My name is Abby. I’m a Medical Aesthetician at LUX Med Spa, and I have melasma. Even as a licensed skincare professional, I am faced with many of the same skincare concerns as my patients. For those of you not familiar with this less-than-desirable skin condition, melasma is hormonal hyperpigmentation. Once it shows up it’s always there, and is almost guaranteed to rear its ugly head in the summer, even with the proper use of sunscreen (reapplying every 2-3 hours) and a hat. It can even be a problem year round without the daily application of sunscreen.
So, you have melasma, and it’s darker from sun exposure. Now what?
After two beach trips, I decided it was time for a Perfect Peel, and had wonderful results after ONE peel! The Perfect Peel is a medical grade TCA peel designed to treat melasma. Once my skin was finished peeling, I started my annual routine of applying Obagi Blender (4% hydroquinone) and Obagi Tretinoin on a nightly basis. For daily sun protection, I like Skin Medica’s Daily Physical Defense Sunscreen, Broad Spectrum SPF 30+.
As you can see, my melasma was on full display after returning from the beach. The Perfect Peel gave me fabulous results! On a side note: Once you start a skincare regimen like mine it’s time to hang up that bikini and stay out of the sun! Melasma is stubborn but you have options, so take comfort in knowing that it is manageable! For a complimentary consultation at LUX Med Spa call 404-465-1234!
Sun damage is very common, especially after the summer. Wrinkles, fine lines, and pigment spots are bound to show up after excess time in the sun.
Luckily, our Atlanta plastic surgery practice can combat this damage with skin resurfacing techniques. That doesn’t mean you should sit out and bake to your heart’s desire though, especially when it comes to tanning beds.

It’s not uncommon that prospective patients visit me in my Atlanta plastic surgery practice for a liposuction procedure in hopes that lipo can help rid them of fat. Well, liposuction does eliminate fat, but not every kind of fat, and not fat located just anyplace in the body. The fat I can’t eliminate with liposuction is what this article is all about: visceral fat.
Chances are that you, your friends and neighbors are fighting an enemy you know little about. Answer the following, and please prove me wrong.
