You can get BOTOX at Image Medi-Spa. Would you like to schedule an appointment?
Botox is a neuromodulator (form of botulinum toxin type A) that is injected into targeted treatment areas using an ultra-fine needle. It works by blocking the nerve signals needed for facial muscles to contract.  Once injected, the neuromodulator relaxes the muscles and decreases their movement to reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles in the area. 
The procedure is not considered painful. Most patients report a brief period of discomfort during the injection, which does not persist once the procedure is complete.
While the experience of each patient may differ, it usually takes 2-4 days to see the effects of Botox or Dysport. For some, it may take up to 2 weeks to realize the final effects.
The results of Botox typically last between 3-4 months from the date of injection. Over time the body metabolizes the Botox, leading to the slow return of muscle movement in the treatment area. 
Some patients may wonder if they are ‘too young’ or ‘too old’ to try Botox. There is no right or wrong age to start using Botox. Patients should be evaluated and receive a consult by a medical professional prior to treatment. Many millennials are starting to use Botox in their twenties when they first start to notice lines, prefer a brow lift, lip flip, and or as a preventative measure.
Yes, Botox is an FDA approved treatment for reversing lines and wrinkles. However, patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have certain neurological diseases should not receive Botox treatments.
Botox can be used to address lines and wrinkles on a number of different facial areas, including the forehead, eye area (crow’s feet), and lip lines. It may be injected to soften dimpling of the chin. Botox can also be injected into the muscles of the jaw to help alleviate pain from teeth grinding or TMJ or for a jaw slimming effect. Some of these treatment areas may be considered off label.  
You can purchase Dermal Filler at IMAGE Medi-Spa in Fargo, North Dakota. Would you like to schedule an appointment?
Dermal Fillers are crystal-clear gels which are the same as a natural skin substance called hyaluronic acid. Replenishing hyaluronic acid rejuvenates and adds volume to the skin, diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and leaving patients with natural looking results.
The hyaluronic acid found in dermal fillers is not actually an acid. It is a “water-loving” molecule found naturally within the human body that keeps skin plump and hydrated. Dermal filler products containing hyaluronic acid provide very natural and safe results.
Dermal fillers are ideal for softening smile lines and plumping thin lips, filling lower eyelid hollows and dark circles, raising cheeks, and lifting drooping brows. Dermal fillers have also been used in treatments to create beautiful nose shapes and profiles, smooth chins as well as acne scars, provide fullness to earlobes, and straighten jawlines.
How long a filler lasts is dependent on how much product you receive, which filler you receive, and your metabolism. Some people break down the filler more quickly than others. Dermal fillers tend to last the longest in areas that move the least. For example, treatment in your cheeks will most likely last longer than those in areas such as the lips.
The dermal fillers used by IMAGE Medi-Spa are reversible and can be adjusted very easily if you have second thoughts after the procedure. A touch-up or reversal can be performed with hyaluronidase, a medication that dissolves the filler.
Over the counter (OTC) products are unable to penetrate deep into the skin where it is being made to see a significant difference.  They are also packed with many preservatives and ingredients are random and not studied.  

Pharmaceutical & cosmeceutical products at IMAGE Medi-Spa are all backed by research and the ingredients are very carefully chosen to actively penetrate through layers of the skin causing more change to the function of skin and its appearance.  

OTC does not change how skin functions and therefor minimal improvement in skin.  

Cosmeceutical & pharmaceutical grades significantly change how skin functions and therefor more improvement to the skin is evident.  

Oh, and by the way… Sephora, Macy’s, Nordstrom, & Saks products (to name a few)… Are all OTC!

IMAGE Medi-Spa offers Laser Hair Removal in Fargo, North Dakota.
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective solution for permanent hair removal. The heat from that laser light disables the hair follicles, which destroys the hair follicle and inhibits future growth. 
Because laser hair removal works by targeting hair in its active growth stage, multiple sessions are necessary in order to treat all of the follicles in the target area. Not all hair follicles will be actively growing at any one given moment, so a series of 4 to 8 sessions can offer the most effective results.
WILL LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK ON MY SKIN TONE?
Thanks to advancements in laser technology, laser hair removal can now work on all skin tones, whereas it was previously only effective removing dark hair from fair skin. However, laser hair removal may not be effective on those with gray, white, or very light blonde hair, so you may want to discuss your treatment options with a trained Registered Nurse at IMAGE Medi-Spa. 
Most men and women enjoy permanent results, you may require a light touch-up down the road. Hair regrowth, if any, will be minimal.
Only those trained and certified to operate laser devices should perform laser hair removal. Even though the procedure is nonsurgical, a careful, skilled professional needs to perform this treatment to ensure your safety and best results. When seeking out the right medical spa, be wary of “too good to be true” prices and offers, because they likely are.  At IMAGE Medi-Spa our highly trained nurses perform all laser treatments.
