Botox Vs. Dysport: What’s The Difference?

Woman with blue eyes looking into the camera from behind a teal sweater, which is covering the bottom portion of her face.

Mark Twain once wrote, “wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.” Obviously, this guy had never been on Instagram before. These days, it’s not just A-list celebrities who seek out age-defying treatments for their faces and bodies. You can scroll through your feed and find pic after pic of all kinds of people, enjoying the good life wrinkle-free.

With derma fillers and non-surgical injectables like Botox and Dysport, more and more people are getting treatments to help reverse and prevent the signs of aging. And why not? The age of stiff smiles and unmovable “Spock Brows” is gone, and in its place is the era of convenient, noninvasive treatments with spectacular, natural-looking results.

Both Dysport and Botox are crowd-pleasing wrinkle treatments because they’re relatively painless and have a lightning-fast recovery time. If you’re considering either of these to help erase some of time’s stamp on your face, here’s a quick and helpful crash course to get you up to snuff.

What is Botox?

A type of neurotoxin — also known as botulinum toxin injections — that works by blocking muscle contractions, Botox is a minimally invasive injectable that smooths facial lines and wrinkles that develop as we age. Because it’s a non-surgical procedure, it doesn’t dramatically change your appearance!

Botox results are so natural looking that they’re a commonplace treatment these days. In fact, 6 million people use it each year. Even more impressive, Botox is the most frequent med spa treatment performed in the US — which means you’ve passed Botox patients every day and never even noticed! The treatment relaxes your facial muscles, so you can still frown, smile, or look surprised as always — just without the wrinkles and creases.

What can you expect from your Botox treatment?

A certified Viva specialist will inject your target area with a very fine needle to relax the muscle. You’ll feel a minimal stinging sensation — most guests rate it a 1 or 2 on a scale of 10 — and will be able to resume your day immediately afterward, with no recovery downtime.

When will you see results?

Within seven to 14 days, you’ll notice a marked improvement, and your results can last anywhere from three to four months. Because our bodies process Botox on a uniquely personal level, the duration of results can vary, but most patients see optimal results after receiving anywhere between two and four treatments per year. Botox treatments are ideal for:

  • Furrowed brows
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles at the corners of the eyes)
  • Bunny lines (wrinkles beside the nose)
  • Smile lines or laugh lines
  • Frown lines
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Eyebrow reshaping
  • Improving facial symmetry
  • Preventing wrinkles from deepening over time
  • Early prevention of the effects of aging

What is Dysport?

Like Botox, Dysport is a botulinum toxin injection, which means that it relaxes the muscles to create a natural and smoothing effect on wrinkles and fine lines. And just like Botox, Dysport is one of the most widely administered prescription cosmetic injectables for softening severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face.

What can you expect from your Dysport treatment?

A Dysport treatment is just like that of a Botox procedure. Your certified Viva injector will administer the injectable into your target area. You’ll experience very minimal discomfort, and you’ll be back to your normal schedule that same day, with no recovery time necessary. Just like with Botox, you’ll see results within seven to 14 days, and your results can last anywhere from three to four months. Dysport is ideal for:

  • Furrowed brows
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles at the corners of the eyes)
  • Bunny lines (wrinkles beside the nose)
  • Smile lines or laugh lines
  • Frown lines
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Eyebrow reshaping
  • Improving facial symmetry
  • Preventing wrinkles from deepening over time
  • Early prevention of the effects of aging

Dysport vs. Botox

The difference between Botox and Dysport is that they’re composed of different formulas. Dysport, while just as effective as Botox, is a more diluted solution, which means you may need more units of Dysport than Botox. However, because it’s more diluted, Dysport is better at treating large areas, whereas Botox is great for smaller fixes. Additionally, Dysport works just a little bit faster than Botox — Dysport devotees sometimes report results in as little as 24 hours, compared to 72 hours for Botox.

Everybody is different though — hooray diversity! — which means that one treatment might just work better for you. Some people who haven’t responded to Botox report that Dysport gives them better results. Your experienced cosmetic injection specialist will help you decide which one is right for you.

At Viva, we believe that every client deserves to feel beautiful — no matter what that means to them. That’s why we’re actively working to reverse the stigma around injectables by offering the best, most cutting-edge med spa treatments in a nurturing, cozy environment. After all, why should you feel ashamed about getting the face you want? As RuPaul likes to say, “only Judy can judge me!”

So stop googling Dysport and Botox near me. If you’re ready to experience the magic of these wrinkle erasers for yourself in a good-for-the-soul environment, we’ve got three convenient Viva locations just waiting to get you started. We offer safe treatments with stunning results in a super chill, non-clinical spa environment. Heck, you can even get your toes done at the same time!

Top Skin Fixes You Can Get From Your Photofacial

Woman with freckles all over her face lying down on her back and smiling directly into the camera.

If you’re like us, you put a major priority on your skincare. After all, it’s no fun to face the world with a face full of fine lines, oversized pores, or discoloration. And while beauty products like leopard print sheet masks and pore strips sure are fun with a glass of wine and Lizzo on full blast, sometimes you need to break out the big guns and address the root of the issue for a more holistic skin care approach. Whatever your issues are — sun damage, aging, large pores, acne, or scarring — photofacials are here to the rescue.

An IPL photofacial, also known as laser photo rejuvenation, is a non-invasive procedure that uses precise amounts of intense pulsed light (IPL) to improve your skin’s clarity and texture for a more clear, even, and youthful appearance. The damaged tissue below your skin’s surface absorbs this light, which stimulates collagen production and causes the blood vessels beneath the epidermis to constrict. The result of this innovative and time-reversing science? Your skin takes on a clearer, smoother, and more youthful look, with noticeable improvement of sun damage, rosacea, large pores, scarring, brown spots, small blood vessels, and fine lines. Best of all, this 30-minute treatment can work its magic on your face, neck, and chest.

Ways To Get Your Photofacial Fix

Each photofacial treatment is specifically tailored to address your unique skin concerns and skin type for a fully personalized treatment. If you suffer from any of the following, a science-backed IPL photofacial is about to become your new best friend.

Rosacea

This common inflammatory skin condition results in redness on the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead, as well as inflamed blood vessels. Photofacials for rosacea use specific wavelengths of controlled light to reduce redness, inflammation, and uneven skin tone. The controlled heat also helps to destroy the inflamed blood vessels that contribute to your skin’s redness. After treatment, your vessels are reabsorbed, and your overall redness and flushing is alleviated by up to 80%.

Acne

Oh, acne. First it was there to make your teenage years as angsty as possible, and now it makes a surprise visit in your twenties, thirties, or even forties. Thankfully, IPL works to remove the excess oil and dead skin cells that clog pores and contribute to breakouts. If you’re suffering from severe or cystic acne, a dermatologist is your best bet, but IPL is a winning weapon to help battle blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Best of all, you’ll be able to say sayonara to daily topical products that dry out your skin.

Signs of Aging

Unfortunately, there’s no miracle serum or cure that can stop time, but IPL sure does help in slowing the effects of time on your face. By treating a deeper layer of the skin, an IPL photofacial stimulates collagen growth, which reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration. Your photofacial results will result in a healthier and more youthful skin texture overall.

Discoloration

Whether you’ve got unwanted freckles, age spots, or dark patches from sun damage, an IPL photofacial helps combat discoloration for a more even skin tone. The light pulses from photo rejuvenation target the pigmented areas — without affecting the healthy surrounding tissue — for  a brighter skin tone that you’ll be happy to flaunt bare-faced.

Dark Undereye Circles

They’re cute on raccoons, so why not on us? These pesky rings are caused by different factors, both genetic and environmental, but most often your blood vessels close to the skin’s surface are to blame. IPL treatments won’t damage the outer layer of your skin, but will close off any vessels or capillaries just below the surface, which will reduce their overall appearance, helping to alleviate dark circles.

Here at Viva Day Spa, we believe that we all should feel comfortable in our own skin — which is why we want to help you make yours look and feel its very best. Our Lumecca IPL photofacial treatments are quick, 30-minute appointments with no downtime, so no matter how busy your schedule, you have time to put your skin first.

If you’re looking for the best photofacial in Austin, you’ve come to the right place. Come visit us at the Viva Day Spa Domain location and find out why we were voted best spa in Austin, Texas, by The Austin ChronicleAustin Monthly Magazine, and the Austin Young Chamber of Commerce.

 

Laser Hair Removal Is For Everyone: Dark Skin Edition

Two African-American woman at the beach hugging each other and laughing, while looking into the camera.

Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin: Is it Safe?

When it comes to beauty products, not all work the same for everyone. From foundations and hair colors to moisturizers and lipsticks, we know that looking and feeling our very best means finding what works best for the specific needs of our skin. What you might not know is that this also applies to certain med spa services, too — namely, laser hair removal.

That’s because hair removal laser technology hasn’t always produced results for everyone, specifically for men and women with medium to dark skin tones. The technology originally didn’t work well or even caused unwanted side effects for these folks. Thankfully, that’s no longer the case. New technologies, as well as an overdue awareness around inclusivity, has resulted in safe and effective laser hair removal for a wide range of skin types.

Why Do Some Laser Hair Removal Devices Spell Trouble for Darker Skin Tones?

You may already know how they work: lasers beams emit light at the follicle, which causes permanent damage so that hair no longer grows there. But that zap comes from the laser targeting the pigment in the hair. When it detects a contrast between the darkness of hair and lightness of skin, it knows where to make its target. Naturally, that means that folks with lighter skin and darker hair have traditionally seen the best results from laser hair removal.

So where does that leave those with medium to dark skin tones? Because laser devices weren’t able to differentiate between the pigment in the skin and the hair, they did a poor job at hair removal — and in some cases even caused dark and light spots, blisters, or scarring in the skin around the follicle. Thankfully, technology has advanced enough to create smarter laser devices that are effective and safe enough for all shades of skin.

Which Laser Hair Removal Devices Are Safe for Medium to Dark Skin Types?

Get ready to love your skin! Here at Viva, inclusivity is a must. That’s why the laser hair removal technology we offer is designed to work its magic to give you smooth skin no matter its shade. Our Triton laser device by InMode is the first high-power laser that offers simultaneous multi-wavelength hair removal firing, which allows synchronized emissions of the three most popular hair removal wavelengths — Alexandrite 755nm, Diode 810nm, and Nd:YAG 1064nm.

In short, the Triton is the best laser hair removal machine because it says hasta la vista to unwanted hair for medium and dark complexions with a high level of power — and without compromising your results.

What If Your Skin Type Is Above a 4 on the Fitzpatrick Scale?

The Fitzpatrick scale is the standard that dermatologists use to measure skin types, with 1 being the lightest and most sensitive to the sun, and 6 being the darkest and least sensitive to the sun. If you’re above a 4 on this scale, the laser energy is delivered more slowly per pulse. Because there’s little room between an effective level and a burn for darker-skinned types, we recommend that you do a patch test before continuing with the full procedure.

A certified Viva laser specialist will happily laser a small area of skin at different energy levels to determine the right level for effective removal without burning your skin. This will also minimize the chance that you could develop the most common laser-related side effects for dark skin — hyperpigmentation, or dark spots, and hypopigmentation, in which the skin pigment lightens.

Here at Viva Day Spa, we want to help you look and feel your very best. Our laser hair removal treatments are quick, painless, and effective, and they give you the smooth skin you’ve been dreaming about. Come visit us at any of the three Viva Day Spa locations and find out how you can get 50% off the price of a series of six laser hair removal treatments.

Swedish vs. Deep Tissue Massage: What’s Your Massage Style?

There are so many reasons why people get massages. Whether it’s an athlete recovering from a sports injury, an office worker who hunches over a screen eight hours a day, or a busy mama who feels the strain from constantly lifting and carrying her kiddos, massages are a perfect way to heal the body from physical and emotional tension. And it doesn’t hurt that they feel downright amazing, too!

Regardless of your background, we here at Viva Day Spa believe that everyone is entitled to self-care and should treat themselves to a massage for full body and mind relaxation. Basically, we believe in wellness for everyone.

Of course, every one of our clients is a unique soul, with their own needs and preferences. That’s why we offer several different methods of massage. That way, whether you’re looking for deep structural release or prefer a more relaxing, gentle touch, you can get exactly what your body needs!

Our licensed massage therapists personalize every massage we give, drawing from the two classic and most well-known massage techniques — Swedish and deep tissue massage. Most people have heard of them because they’re the gold standards for massage. So what are the differences between the two? Are they intended for different purposes, and most importantly which is right for you? Let’s find out!

Swedish Massage

What comes to mind when you close your eyes and think about getting a massage? Probably someone lying face-down, completely relaxed and enjoying soothing music while a therapist works their massage magic. That’s exactly what a Swedish massage offers — it’s even referred to as the classic massage technique. It aims to increase blood circulation and promote relaxation by releasing body tension and improving muscle flexibility.

What Can You Expect During a Swedish Massage?

In addition to stimulating the nervous system, Swedish massage also nurtures the skin, which soothes the nerves and reduces physical and emotional tension. How does it do that? Your massage therapist will use long, kneading strokes and deep, circular movements to increase the flow of oxygen into the bloodstream, which helps flush lactic and uric acids from your body.

Of course, we all have our personal preferences, but overall, Swedish massage is more gentle than deep tissue massage and better suited to anyone who’s looking for a pampering indulgence, or full mind-body relaxation.

Who Is a Swedish Massage Best For?

Swedish massage is great for anyone who wants to loosen muscle tension that results from daily exercise, poor posture, etc. It also works well for people with tension in their lower back, shoulders, or neck or anyone who wants to treat themselves to a luxurious indulgence of self-care!

Viva Day Spa Swedish Massage

Viva’s Swedish massage is perfect if you’re looking for that melted-butter-on-toast feeling. Our licensed massage therapists work to soothe stress and melt away tension, like a warm hug for your muscles. Here’s what you get when you book a massage with us:

  • 90, 75, 60, 45, or 30 Minute Swedish Massage
  • Aromatherapy
  • Warm Neck Pillow
  • Hot Herbal Steam Towel Treatment on Neck & Feet

Make it a day of mega self care with one of these reviving upgrades, available for all Viva massages:

  • Express Magic Mint Foot Reflexology | $12
  • Hot Herbal Steam Towel Treatment | $12

  • 30 Minute Viva Foot Ritual – Magic Mint Foot Reflexology Treatment, Foot
  • Massage with Hydration Treatment & Warm Foot Salt Scrub | $75

It’s everything you need to soothe your entire body!

Deep Tissue Massage

Looking for something a bit more intense than a relaxing and revitalizing Swedish massage? A deep tissue massage is just the answer for those who require a bit more attention — and pressure! — in the deepest part of the muscles.

Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage, but it cranks up the pressure a notch — or three. (Think John Mellencamp’s “Hurts So Good.”) Designed to target the inner layers of muscles and tendons, a deep tissue massage aids healing by relaxing tense areas of muscle and tissue. Because it helps increase blood flow and can help reduce inflammation, it’s the best massage for working out any muscle knots or relieving body tension and soreness.

What Can You Expect During a Deep Tissue Massage?

A licensed Viva Day Spa therapist will dig a little deeper during your deep tissue massage, using many of the same stroking and kneading movements as Swedish massage, but also incorporating a higher degree of pressure. Although this technique is more intense than a Swedish massage, it shouldn’t hurt. Instead, the sensation will be a balance between a satisfying release of tension and the muscles pushing back against the pressure.

You should, however, expect to experience some soreness for two or three days after your deep tissue massage, and your therapist may suggest treating it with heat, ice, or stretches.

Who Is a Deep Tissue Massage Good For?

Deep tissue massage is a favorite of athletes, runners, or anyone else who experiences chronic muscle injuries. And it’s also great for people with chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and lower back pain, or anyone who wants a deeper structural massage to work out the kinks and knots.

Viva Day Spa Deep Tissue Massage

Hello, fascial release! Wring tension and pain from deep in your muscles and revitalize connective tissue with a firm-but-loving deep tissue massage. When you book this treatment at Viva you get:

  • 90, 75, 60, 45, or 30 Minute Deep Tissue Massage

  • Hot Herbal Steam Towel Treatment on Neck & Feet

Ready to experience the deep release of an expert massage? The no more Google searches for “massage spa near me.” Whether you’re looking for a deep tissue massage in North Austin or a Swedish massage downtown, we offer both massage types at our three Viva Day Spa locations, so we’re convenient no matter where you live in the Austin City limits. Come spend the afternoon with us, and let us pamper your hardworking body the way it deserves.

Our Complete Spa Guide for Hot Mamas-To-Be

A woman laying down and holding her pregnant stomach at the top and bottom.

As much talk as there is of the “glow” of pregnancy, the truth is that you’re probably not feeling your best these days. With a baby bump that’s more of a baby watermelon, swollen feet, morning sickness, back aches, and a surprise sprinkling of new hair cropping up in unwanted places, you probably feel more in need of a visit to the spa than ever.

That’s why this is a perfect time to indulge in a much-needed and much-deserved pregnancy spa pampering (hint, hint, significant others!). Not only is your body going through uncomfortable changes that could use a little TLC, but the months ahead are the calm before the storm. You’re about to experience a lack of sleep, late nights, messy diapers, and a schedule that no longer belongs to you. So why not treat yourself while you have the time?

Is Pregnancy Massage Safe?

First things first. You’re a mama-to-be, and your number-one priority is to keep your baby — and yourself — as healthy as possible. If you’re a high-risk pregnancy, we strongly suggest you get the go-ahead from your doctor before a massage treatment. Otherwise, our pregnancy massage treatments are safe and healthy throughout your entire pregnancy.

Here at Viva Day Spa, we love pampering moms-to-be, and our deep and experienced knowledge of massage techniques safely and comfortably address the special needs of pregnant women like you. Our trained massage therapists know which techniques to use, as well as which areas to focus on or avoid to best soothe your aches and pains. They will take special care in checking on you throughout the massage for comfort level and body temperature, as well as special pregnancy bolstering for body support and complete protection.

A study at the University of Miami School of Medicine indicates that massage therapy during pregnancy can have benefits such as decreased anxiety, reduced leg and back pain, and improved sleep. Our licensed massage experts here at Viva Day Spa have specifically designed a full body pregnancy massage to soothe aches and pains and reduce swelling in the body during your pregnancy journey. Our ultimate prenatal pampering pregnancy massage includes:

Your choice of 90, 75, 60, 45, or 30 minutes of gentle, indulgent massage

  • Warm neck pillow
  • Hot herbal steam towel to soothe aching feet and legs

Or even better, hook yourself up with a massage series and get a massage every month of your pregnancy! Buy five of the same treatments, and your sixth visit is on us!

*We also offer you the option of these upgrades for a full-on pampering:

  • Hot Herbal Towel Treatment | $12
  • 15 Extra Minutes of Massage | $25
  • 15 Minute Warm Salt Foot or Back Scrub with Essential Oils | $30

Are There Other Pregnancy Spa Treatments That Are Safe for Me?

Yes! We have a wide variety of spa and med spa services for the mind, body, and spirit to help you feel incredible from the inside out before, during and after you pregnancy. Besides massage, we also offer facials, waxing and more. Don’t worry, Mama, we’ve got plenty of primping and pampering you can do while pregnant:

A Flaunt-Your-Features Facial

Most facials will be safe for you during your pregnancy, including those that are designed to deep cleanse the skin through exfoliation, steam, and gentle serums. Facials with harsher treatments, like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or beta hydroxy acid (BHA) such as salicylic acid, could be potentially harmful to your extra-sensitive skin and should be avoided until after you’ve given birth and are finished with breastfeeding.

However, our Organic Custom Designer Facial is very popular for mamas to be. With all organic ingredients — including a blueberry detox peel and massage for the neck, shoulders, and arms — it’s a safe and natural way to boost your mood and give your body a little extra love when you need it most. The Organic Summer Facial Package includes:

  • One-hour Custom Organic Facial with blueberry detox peel
  • Emollient organic eye treatment
  • Exfoliating organic lip treatment
  • Neck, shoulder, and arm massage with Oh So Coconut-Vanilla body lotion

Manicure and Pedicure for Tip-to-Toe Beauty

This is another indulgent treat you can enjoy safely during your pregnancy. Here at Viva Day Spa, your mani or pedi is done in a well-ventilated and highly sanitary environment. You’ll get to take advantage of your newly strong and fast-growing nails, thanks to those pregnancy hormones and prenatal vitamins. In your last trimester especially, a pedicure can be soothing for aching feet, increasing your circulation and easing your swelling.

Full-Body Beauty-Boosting Bikini Waxing

Let’s be honest. When you’re pregnant, your bikini line is probably the area of your body that’s getting the least amount of love. As the bump in your belly grows, you see less and less — literally! — of the view down below. So why not treat yourself to a little grooming? It’s completely safe, and even something as small as cleaning up your edges is an act of self-care for a mama-to-be.

Looking for pregnancy spa packages? Here at Viva Day Spa, we believe that self-care is a form of healthcare, and we want to help you feel good about yourself from the inside out, always — but especially when you’re pregnant and in need of some extra pampering!

In fact, we have the mother of all spa packages perfect for mamas-to-be! Our Mother Nurture spa package includes the following treatments for some sweet pregnancy relief:

  • 60 minutes of muscle-melting massage
  • A super-gentle body wrap with lavender, grapefruit, coriander, and vitamin E —all pregnancy approved!
  • Cocoa butter foot hydration treatment for those hard-workin’ tootsies
  • Take-home goodies

Not to brag, but it’s basically the most soothing prenatal massage in Austin, Texas! Come visit us at any of the three Viva Day Spa locations and find out why we were voted 2018 Best of the Best Massage in Austin by the Austin American-Statesman. Visit us online to book your visit today! It’s never too soon for a little prenatal pampering!

Everything You Need To Know About Lip Filler

Close-up of a woman puckering her lips

Maybe it was the first time you saw Angelina Jolie’s pillowy lips on the big screen. Maybe you like your lips the way they are but just want a little added definition to your Cupid’s bow. Or maybe you found out the hard way that plumping gloss just doesn’t work after all. (If only!)

Regardless of what brought you here, we’re glad you’ve come. No more Google searches for “lip fillers near me.” If you’ve been daydreaming about making a change — no matter how dramatic — to the shape or thickness of your lips, get ready to flaunt your new pout. We love helping our clients feel and look their best, and we want you to feel safe and educated about every cosmetic treatment you try. Here’s everything you need to know about injectable lip fillers.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?

Unlike some other cosmetic injectables, lip fillers are made from a naturally occurring substance in the body. 

Here at Viva Day Spa we use two brands of lip fillers: Juvederm and Restylane. Both of these gel injectables use hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar found in your skin, to plump your lips for a subtly enhanced pout. We use an ultra-fine needle that employs Vycross technology to instantly and safely enhance the contour of your lips. Both injectables also soften existing vertical lines while augmenting your natural mouth shape, all in a single treatment. Talk about a two-for one!

Because hyaluronic acid is already a part of your body’s process, it has a remarkably strong hold. It also attracts and traps moisture under the skin, creating an unbelievably natural look to your new lip definition.

We offer five different fillers, all of which are in the Juvederm or Restylane filler family. The difference lies in their hyaluronic particle size. The smaller the particle, the more subtle the effects of your injections. Juvederm Volbella, which has the smallest particle size, is best for natural look that hydrates and addresses crepiness and fine lines. On the other end is Juvederm Vollure, which contains the largest particle size and is best for those who want more volume and change in the shape of their lips. One of Viva Day Spa’s Certified Cosmetic Injector will go over each of these options in your consult to help you decide which is just right for your kisser.

  • Juvederm Volbella
  • Restylane Refyne
  • Restylane
  • Juvederm Ultra
  • Juvederm Vollure

Your Viva Day Spa Advanced Aesthetic Injector will administer your lip filler with a local anesthetic to make sure you hardly feel a thing. The whole process is complete within minutes, although it’s important to note that you may experience slight bruising and swelling for three to five days after treatment.

How Long Will My Lip Fillers Last?

Lip fillers are FDA approved to last for 12 months, although it depends on which filler you choose. For example, Juvederm Volbella has the smallest hyaluronic particle, so it lasts closer to 6 months, while Restylane can yield results that last anywhere from 6 to 12 months.

There’s also the issue of metabolism. Depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid, the life cycle of your fillers may vary. Your injector will choose the brand of filler that’s best-suited to your metabolism and lifestyle to make sure you have beautiful and long-lasting results.

When Will I Notice Results?

Once your treatment is complete, you’ll notice that your lips appear slightly swollen. You might even experience slight bruising, along with the swelling, for three to five days after your treatment. You can rest assured that this is completely normal.

The best practice — especially if you have to rush back into the real world immediately afterward — is to ice your lips for no more than 10 minutes per day. Patients can also use our prescription-strength Arnica to help with bruising. Your certified injector can advise you on how to speed up your recovery as well. But no matter what you do, be sure to drink lots of water! After a few days, the swelling will have noticeably settled, and you’ll be ready to rock your new Cupid’s bow. 

How Much Lip Filler Should I Get?

Here at Viva Day Spa, we believe that you should do whatever you need to feel good about your appearance. That said, we do recommend starting off with one syringe and build until you reach your desired goal for your new pout. 

During your consultation, one of our certified specialists will guide you through the process of understanding your aesthetic goals so that your results exactly match your vision. After all, lip filler is an art form, and everyone will want something different and unique to them. Here are just a few examples:

  • Stronger, more prominent Cupid’s bow
  • Fuller, more rounded top lip
  • A slight enhancement to fix asymmetry
  • Increased volume in either the upper or lower lip
  • Increased volume in upper and lower lip to varying proportions (40/60, 50/50 or otherwise)

We offer complimentary lip consultations so that one of our certified specialists can guide you through the process and get to know your aesthetic goals before you schedule a treatment appointment. 

Are Lip Fillers Safe?

Both Restylane and Juvederm lip fillers are completely safe. In fact, both lip fillers are industry standard, used in medical spa offices everywhere. The only situation in which they might not be right for you is if you have a history of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), or if you are allergic to lidocaine. Your certified specialist will go over what to avoid before your procedure (spicy foods, alcohol, excessive working out, etc.) to ensure you’re well hydrated and will experience as little swelling as possible. 

What If I Don’t Like Them?

Our number-one priority is to make sure you feel better when you walk out our doors than you did when you came in. That’s why your certified specialist will thoroughly discuss your augmentation goals before beginning with injections at a complimentary consultation. 

Another added bonus of hyaluronic acid, however, is that it can be removed with an enzyme called hyaluronidase even before it naturally dissolves. So if for some reason you decide against the filler after it’s already been injected, you can purchase a treatment for elective dissolving.

Now that you know how safe and painless the treatments are, you’re probably asking yourself “Okay, great, but how much does it cost to get lip fillers?”

Lucky for you, we’ve got some summer specials to make you feel even better about your decision. Because we’re all about self-care and helping you have confidence in your appearance, we’re offering specials with a 60-minute Swedish massage included (or without if that’s not your thing).

Your Everything Laser Hair Removal Guide

Woman's legs dangling in a swimming pool.

With an annual average of 228 days of sunshine, we Austinites spend the majority of our year in bathing suits — or shorts and short sleeves at the very least. And that means that if we want to keep our skin looking as smooth and silky as possible, we have a lot of upkeep to do. If you’re looking for an alternative to tedious shaving and costly, painful waxing, laser hair removal is going to be your new best friend. 

So throw out those razors and pull up a chair — here’s everything you ever wanted to know about laser hair removal.. 

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal causes permanent hair reduction, to the point that you can stop shaving altogether. Here’s how it works: after each session, your hair growth is drastically reduced, and you’ll notice than any remaining hairs become finer and lighter in color. In addition to decreasing hair with each treatment, laser hair removal will also reduce the number of ingrown hairs and help prevent razor bumps, burns, and irritations so that your skin will be as soft as after a clean shave.

How long does laser hair removal last?

The average patient will need six to nine treatments to notice the major reduction of hair growth. After this, any hair regrowth can be easily managed with a yearly touch-up treatment to keep your skin silky smooth.

Laser hair removal is effective for eliminating hair on all parts of the body, except for around the eyes. Common treatment areas are:

How effective is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can vary from person to person, but on average, patients should expect that it will remove 80 to 90% of hair. 

Our hair grows in cycles, so while some hair follicles are in the growth phase, others are at rest. Because laser hair removal only eliminates hair in the growth stage, multiple treatments will be necessary before you notice permanent reduction. The average person will need between six to nine treatments for maximum results, and one treatment per year thereafter is suggested to maintain your results. 

It’s important to remember that hormonal changes — such as getting pregnant — can increase hair growth, but a maintenance treatment afterward will balance it out and get you back to silky-smooth skin!

How does laser hair removal work?

When you visit us at Viva Day Spa, you’ll have a quick chat with one of our experienced laser technicians so they can answer any questions, and make sure that laser hair removal is the right service for you. Then we’ll get you ready for your treatment so your life without unwanted hair can begin!

During your treatment, laser beam wavelengths travel through the skin to target your hair follicles. The high-energy laser light safely targets the pigment in the root of the hair, converts to heat, and destroys the follicle. This prevents future hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin.

At Viva Day Spa, our laser hair removal treatment is extremely quick. The total time depends on the size of the treatment area. For example, treatment of both legs usually only requires a 30-minute session.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Because some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, it’s possible to feel some mild discomfort during your laser hair removal treatment; however, most people report feeling no pain whatsoever. Traditional lasers can leave a hot feeling over the skin, but Viva’s Triton laser device has a built-in cooling tip that cools the skin before and after each follicle extraction, so even your minimal discomfort is further reduced. However, it’s important to us that you feel 100% comfortable in our care, so we also offer numbing cream (Lidocaine) to ease your stress. 

After your treatment, you’ll notice some slight redness and swelling (a condition called folliculitis) of the skin that will dissipate in a few short hours. Because this treatment requires no downtime, you can return to your daily activities immediately after your session. The only limitation is that you should avoid heat on your skin for the rest of the day, which means no sunbathing, soaking in a hot tub, or working out. 

Is laser hair removal safe?

Whereas many med spas use a hair removal device with only one wavelength, here at Viva Day Spa we use laser technology that’s the first of its kind. Triton by InMode is the world’s first FDA cleared multi-wavelength hair removal device — utilizing 755, 810, and 1,064 nanometers — which makes it high powered and safe enough for all skin types and and able to treat almost all hair colors.

Does it work on all skin types?

While some spas only offer laser hair removal services for lighter skin tones, our new Triton laser hair removal tool allows us to treat clients with a wide range of skin tones and hair colors. This tool obliterates black and brown hair like a boss. The only hair we can’t treat is blonde, red or gray hair (not enough pigment) — but hey, that’s why there’s waxing and sugaring!

Summertime is the perfect time to indulge in a little pampering. And laser hair removal treatment will save you so much time on shaving and waxing, you’ll have more of it to spend at the pool or on the beach instead!

Viva’s Ultimate Summer Skin Care Guide

Good news — summer is officially here! Time for lazy days at the pool, grilling for dinner, and frosé with (almost) every meal. In other words, total paradise, right?

Well, for the most part. But with summer comes the heat, and it’s especially fierce here in the capital of Texas, where temperatures can spike to triple digits for months on end. And to our skin, all that heat and sun isn’t quite paradise. It’s not just the fact that every single pore on our bodies seems to be sweating at once. It’s also that powerful UVA and UVB rays are at an all-time high, with the potential to cause painful sunburns and damage your skin. 

And UV rays aren’t the only culprit. Heat can wreak its own special havoc on your skin, causing rosacea flare-ups, aggravating hyperpigmentation, and worsening breakouts.

That’s why it’s so important to show your skin some extra love this summer and treat yourself to a little seasonal pampering. Think of it like a beach vacation for your epidermis. Here’s how to keep your skin glowing even when the weather is scorching.

Catch Some Rays (But Not the UV Kind!)

Let’s face it, lobster red is not a great look for anyone. And exposure to UV rays can cause long-term skin damage while undoing whatever progress you’ve made with your skin care regimen and facials. Wrinkles, acne, age spots, and rosacea — the list of damages goes on and on. 

The best way to keep your face out of the burn ward is to invest in a quality sunblock. At Viva we offer a variety of different sunscreens from SkinCeuticals and Eminence Organics to keep your face protected while you soak up the sun. For full-body coverage, we also carry mineral and organic sunscreens from Coola. These products come in a variety of different weights and are specially formulated for your skin so you can avoid that greasy feel and the pore-clogging effects of traditional sunblocks. When you book one of our facial services, our skin care experts will get you set up with a sunblock that will perfectly match your preferences and skin type.

“C” Ya, Sun Damage

It’s what’s underneath that counts, whether you’re talking inner beauty or sunscreen. In the case of the latter, a little vitamin C can make a big difference while you’re soaking up that vitamin D. Applying a vitamin C serum like SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic before you put on sunscreen can help minimize environmental damage and may even give your sunscreen a little bit more mileage. Of course, you’ll still want to slather on the sunblock and reapply periodically throughout the day. Our estis know their stuff and can help you create an at-home product kit with all the sun-soothing tools you need to get you through to your next facial appointment.

Go for That Boho Desert Look

Summer is the season of swimsuits and spaghetti straps, but don’t be afraid to cover up sometimes too. The perfect summer hat, paired with a fashionable cotton coverup, can do wonders for your skin — and your beachside look. Plus, covering yourself with a light cotton material will actually keep you cooler than baring it all. Here’s to not being a sweaty mess! 

After Sun Care Is Clutch

Sunblock, sweat, chlorine — a day by the pool can be pretty brutal on your skin. And no matter how carefully you apply your sunscreen, we all miss a spot sometimes. (Or even forget altogether. We’ve all been there!) Spritzing yourself with a hydrating toner throughout the day and especially after sun can soothe your skin from heat-related reactions. 

We particularly love Eminence Organics’s Stone Crop Hydrating Mist. It’s made with the juice of stone crop, a cute little succulent that packs a powerful healing punch. It’s even more soothing for your skin than aloe vera, so it can calm inflammation and ease burns like a boss. Then come in for one of our curated seasonal facials, like our Organic Summer Facial Package, for a little aftersun detox.

Make a Date with Your Favorite Face Mask

Our lives can get pretty hectic during the summer. What with pool parties and beach dates and vacations, it’s easy to get burned out — both literally and physically. That’s why it’s important to schedule regular self care this time of year and treat yourself to your favorite facial mask. 

Masks can go a long way to repair the damage from the summer sun, particularly if you go for a calming, cooling product, like Eminence Organics’s Clear Skin Probiotic Masque or SkinCeuticals’s Phyto Corrective Mask. These masks contain hydrating, healing ingredients, like cucumber, yogurt, thyme extract, and other botanicals that will help nurture your skin from irritation, inflammation, and drying.

So go ahead, put on your favorite chill playlist, mask up, and give yourself some time to unwind and detox from the day. 

Facials, Facials, and More Facials

As if you needed a reason to book a facial, right? A summertime facial is not just an excuse for some warm-weather pampering. It’s also a way to hydrate and rejuvenate your skin — and make a post-summer plan with your esti for future treatments. Your Viva skin care expert can even help you prep for skin-triggering events like vacations. (A full week of margaritas, sun exposure, and indulgent meals? Great for the soul, but not so great for your skin). And we’ll help you plan ahead for more intensive treatments, like microneedling and deep pore cleansing, which are better saved for the fall. 

Basically, summer skin care is all about fighting the elements and beating the sun at its game — while making sure you can enjoy that beach vacay you’ve been looking forward to. But you don’t have to do it alone. Our estis will help you beat the heat with a personalized treatment plan built just for your beautiful face. In fact, we offer several custom facial services perfect for the hot days ahead:

HydraFacials: The Skin Care Treatment You Need

Woman receiving a HydraFacial treatment.

If you’re a skin care addict like us, you’re always looking for the latest fix — and the HydraFacial is it! This treatment basically takes a lot of traditional facial services, like peels, microdermabrasion, cleansing, and moisturizing, and packs them all into one gentler mega-treatment in just 30 minutes! And if you’ve ever seen someone who just got a HydraFacial, you know that they really “glow” the distance. 

Seriously, the results are jaw-dropping: smooth, radiant, moisturized skin that will make you go, “HydraFacial, where have you been all my life?” Here’s everything you need to know about HydraFacial — and why you’re going to want to book one, stat.

What Is HydraFacial, Anyway?

HydraFacial comes by its name honestly: water — along with beauty-boosting antioxidants and moisturizers — are vortex-infused into your skin with a special medical-grade device. This little doohickey can do it all: known as “hydradermabrasion,” this treatment simultaneously cleans and exfoliates your pores, removing toxins and impurities while bathing your beautiful face with healthy, nourishing targeted serums. 

We know what you’re thinking: “Vortex? Seriously?” Despite the space-age-sounding terminology, the HydraFacial is a pretty down-to-earth treatment. The vortex describes the “whirling” motion of the device, which allows it to suck out the bad stuff and replace it with all the hydration and nutrients your skin loves at the same time.

The whole treatment breaks down into three steps. First, we gently cleanse, exfoliate, and resurface the skin à la your traditional facial peel. Then we get down to extracting and hydrating. But unlike microdermabrasion or manual extractions, this gentler technique uses water to deeply clean skin and a suctioning force to “vacuum” out the pores — without the pain. Finally, we bathe your face with activating peptides and antioxidants so you can get that super-healthy, extra-radiant glow.

The great thing is that your esthetician will tailor your treatment to meet the specific needs of your skin. So if you have really clogged pores, our estis can give you a vitamin C enzyme mask. If you’re dealing with problem brown spots, we can give you a dose of patented treatments that will help reduce their appearance. Basically, the HydraFacial has never met a face it can’t fix.

Why We’re in Love with This Service

Okay, so we’re clearly superfans of HydraFacial. But there are some good reasons it’s got us so giddy:

It Helps You Put Your Best Face Forward

Not to sound like a broken record, but the results of a HydraFacial are hard to argue with. It’s great for all complexions and skin types. HydraFacial can even help with skin problems, like acne and oily or uneven skin. It can buff out brown spots, smooth wrinkles, soothe breakouts — the list goes on and on. And it’s gentle enough for even the most sensitive faces. 

Dermatologists Love It

You know it’s a good service when doctors are just as into it as we beauty junkies are. The Derm Review praises HydraFacial’s gentler approach to exfoliation, making it a great alternative to microdermabrasion or laser treatments, since it won’t irritate your skin quite as much. 

It’s Completely Pain-Free

No offense to Beyoncé, but here at Viva we don’t believe that “pretty hurts.” One of the great things about the HydraFacial is that, unlike other intensive facial treatments, it’s completely pain-free. There are no weird reactions, scaliness, or scarring like you might find with some other facial services (looking at you, fraxel laser treatments). 

It’s Super Fast and Convenient

If you’ve got thirty minutes, you’ve got enough time for a HydraFacial. And most people experience little to no side effects, meaning you can walk out the door and head straight to brunch and not feel like Frankenstein’s monster. In fact, you’ll probably have everyone asking how you got your face looking so gorg. Ready to get up close and personal with HydraFacial?

Check out our HydraFacial MD treatment or upgrade to our Deluxe HydraFacial MD with your choice of one of two serums designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and minimize the appearance of dark spots, plus LED Light Therapy to address acne and signs of aging.

Or treat yourself to a super luxe day of facial bliss by adding revitalizing lip and eye treatments, plus a special beauty-enhancing Growth Factor Serum, all included in our Platinum HydraFacial MD service.

The results will be written all over your face!
