At Petra Medi-Spa we administer Botox/Dysport/Xeomin that are neurotoxins and can relax the muscles of facial expression. Neurotoxins are used primarily for reducing the appearance of the wrinkles caused by years of smiling, laughing, and frowning. The areas that respond the best to toxins are the smile lines around the eyes (Crow’s feet), the frown lines between the eyebrows (Glabellar lines), and the forehead lines (Frontalis lines).
At Petra Medi-Spa Dermal fillers like Restylane/Juvederm/Radiesse/Belotero are long-lasting cosmetic fillers that provide dramatic results for improving the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles and folds. This is a non-surgical solution used to soften facial lines and wrinkles, restore volume and fullness to the skin and also can fill in scars. The cosmetic results are visible immediately, leaving you with a more youthful and invigorated look.
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.”
How does KYBELLA® work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat again.
How many treatments will I need?
You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatments. Up to 6 treatments may be administered spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Who should not receive KYBELLA®?
Do not receive KYBELLA®:
· If you have an infection in the treatment area.
· If you had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin
· If you had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin
· If you have medical conditions in or near the neck area, or have trouble swallowing.
· If you have bleeding problems
· If you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant or breastfeeding
· If you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine).
Most common side effects of KYBELLA®
· Swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness around the treated area.
· Nerve injury in the jaw (which can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness)
· Call your doctor for medical advice if you are experiencing trouble swallowing, open sores (ulcers), damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site.
Hyperhidrosis is a common disorder which produces excessive sweating. An estimated 2%-3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start around puberty, while palm and sole sweating may begin earlier, often during childhood. Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life. Severe cases can have serious practical consequences as well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a steering wheel, or shake hands. Although neurologic, metabolic, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause excessive sweating, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all the time, regardless of their mood or the weather. At Petra Medi-Spa we can effectively treat Hyperhidrosis with Botox injections.
Sclerotherapy is a standard treatment for spider veins on legs also known as telangiectasia or star burst blemishes. A special solution like hypertonic saline, glycerin or Sodradecol is injected into the blood vessel, which then collapses and gets absorbed by the body.
Local swelling and bruising may occur at the injection site and along the vessel. Swelling usually lasts 24 hours, bruising fades within several weeks. Alternative treatment includes NdYag laser for more superficial, fine veins and also some bigger, deeper blue veins. Please make an appointment for a consultation to discuss your options.
There is nothing that reward more than investing in your body. If you care about your looks, go for sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is one of the medical procedures used to get rid of spider veins and varicose veins. Basically, Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a salt solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates blood vessel lining, such that it causes the lining to collapse and stick together and the blood clots. The vessel turns into a scar tissue over time which then fades from view. The sclerotherapy procedure is proven and has been practiced since the 1930s.
How Sclerotherapy is done
During sclerotherapy procedure, a saline solution is injected directly into the vein using a very fine needle. During the process, a person may experience cramping or mild discomfort for a minute or two if the larger vein is injected. The whole procedure is carried out for approximately 15-30 minutes. It’s hard to determine the number of veins injected in a session though it depends on the size and where the veins are located, and the generic medication of an individual. The procedure can be carried out by a dermatologist in a doctor’s office or equipped medical spa. A patient is required not to get involved in any aerobic activity for some time after the procedure.
Candidates of Sclerotherapy
Normally, a patient will have an initial consultation with a specialist before the sclerotherapy. The specialist will decide if you are a good candidate for sclerotherapy. The ideal candidate is those who are healthy and do not smoke. Pregnant women are not eligible for sclerotherapy services. Those who take birth control pills can have sclerotherapy. The eligibility of patient who had a blood clot in the past is decided on an individual basis and mainly depends on the health of the specific area needing treatment and the reason for the clot.
Benefits of sclerotherapy
Many people go for sclerotherapy with a goal of reducing the appearance of varicose veins. These veins are not harmful or dangerous, but they can be embarrassing or very unsightly. Sclerotherapy sessions are short and sweet as they take 15-30 minutes and is pain-free. No sedative is administered during the procedure and therefore the entire therapy session doesn’t disrupt your schedule. Another benefit of sclerotherapy is the fact that it is great for all ages. It is a proven effective and safe procedure for individuals of all ages with the majority of patients between 30-36 years old. Sclerotherapy produces great aesthetic results as the unsightly veins diminish. Serious complications of the procedure are rare when performed by an experienced vein physician.

Do you want to undergo Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment PRP? Your blood contains platelet plasma. This component helps your skin to treat and heal burns and skin injuries. During PRP treatment, small amounts of blood are taken from your arm. This blood is then put in a centrifuge which spins the blood at high speed to separate platelet plasma from the blood cells.
The separated platelet plasma then gets injected into an area, for example, your face. That signals this area to form new blood cells. It also helps to produce Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen. The result is that your skin improves in color, volume, tone and texture.
Doctors can use this process in any part of your body including the face. In this guide, we look at 5 benefits of undergoing PRP treatment.
