Preparing for your treatment is an important step in ensuring that you get the best possible results. Here's what you can do to prepare for your treatment at our medical spa:
- Avoid blood-thinning medications: If you're taking any medications or supplements that thin your blood, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or fish oil, please let us know. These medications can increase your risk of bruising, so we may ask you to stop taking them for a few days before your treatment.
- Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to your treatment can help keep your skin hydrated and make it easier to perform the procedure.
- Avoid alcohol and caffeine: Alcohol and caffeine can dehydrate your skin, which can make it more difficult to perform the treatment. We recommend avoiding these substances for at least 24 hours before your treatment.
- Avoid direct sunlight: Exposure to sunlight can increase your risk of developing pigmentation issues or other complications after your treatment. We recommend avoiding direct sunlight or using a high-SPF sunscreen for at least 24 hours before your treatment.

Botox is a neurotoxin that works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and lines on the face. The duration of the treatment will depend on several factors, including the area being treated, the amount of Botox used, and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle.
In general, Botox treatments typically last between 3-6 months. After this time, the muscles will gradually start to regain their movement, and wrinkles and lines will begin to reappear. However, some patients may notice that their Botox results last longer or shorter than this, depending on individual factors.
To maintain your results, we recommend scheduling regular follow-up appointments to receive touch-up treatments as needed.
Radiofrequency for microneedling is an advanced cosmetic treatment that combines the power of microneedling with the skin-tightening benefits of radiofrequency energy. During the VirtueRF treatment, the device is used to create tiny micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing process and promoting the production of collagen and elastin.
The radiofrequency energy is then applied to the skin through the same device, heating the deeper layers of skin to further stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. This dual approach helps to improve the overall texture and firmness of your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
The procedure is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime, making it a great option for busy patients who want to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin without the inconvenience of a lengthy recovery period. Our experienced team at Augusta Aesthetics will work with you to customize a treatment plan based on your individual needs and goals, helping you achieve the beautiful, radiant skin you deserve.

VirtueRF microneedling treatments help tighten and firm the skin with radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity. Here's how it works:
- Microneedling: First, a handheld device is used to create tiny microchannels in the skin. These microchannels stimulate the body's natural healing response, which helps to produce new collagen and elastin.
- Radiofrequency energy: Next, radiofrequency energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin through the microneedles. This energy heats the skin tissue, causing the collagen fibers to contract and tighten.
- Collagen production: Over time, the body's natural healing response produces new collagen and elastin, which further tightens and firms the skin.

There is minimal downtime with the RF micro-needling treatment. After a treatment, your skin will appear red, almost like a sunburn appearance. This redness will dissipate over the following 4-8 hours.
The recommended treatment plan includes a series of 3 treatments to see optimal results. Each treatment can be performed 4-6 apart. From there, additional treatments occur on an as needed basis following the patient’s general aging process.
Immediately after the VirtueRF Microneedling treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling, similar to a mild sunburn. This typically subsides within 24-48 hours, and you can expect to see some improvement in your skin texture and tone within a week or two.
In terms of full healing time, it varies from person to person depending on the severity of their skin condition and the treatment area. Most patients see the full results of their VirtueRF Microneedling treatment within 4-6 weeks.
During the healing process, it's important to follow the post-care instructions provided by our medical spa. You should avoid using any exfoliating products or treatments for at least 72 hours after your treatment, protect your skin from the sun, and avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs for at least 24-48 hours after your treatment.

Following treatments some patients find improvements in their skin only after a few days. Fine lines and scars may seem less defined and this can be from the skin contracting and tightening.
The real magic occurs over the following weeks to months as the body produces collagen and elastin. Final results are typically seen 4-6 months after the last treatment session.
Dermal fillers can be placed in a variety of areas in the face to restore lost volume and add structure. Treatment areas include cheeks, under-eye, naso-labial folds, lips, chin, and jawline.
The filler treatments are long lasting, but not permanent. Patients can expect results to last anywhere from 6 months-2 years, depending on a variety of factors including the patient’s age, area treated, type of filler used, quantity of filler used, and lifestyle.
We understand that patients may have concerns about getting lip filler if they have a history of cold sores. Here's what you need to know:
Cold sores can be triggered by various factors, including stress, illness, and sun exposure. While lip filler injections can cause a minor trauma to the lips, the risk of developing a cold sore after the procedure is relatively low.
However, if you have a history of cold sores, it's important to let our injectors know during your consultation. It's also important to avoid the injection site if you currently have an active cold sore or if you feel one coming on.

Subnovii Plasma is a cutting-edge treatment that uses plasma energy to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin. The treatment involves using a handheld device to deliver plasma energy to the skin's surface, which triggers a natural healing response in the skin.
The plasma energy works by creating tiny micro-injuries in the skin, which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These two proteins are essential for maintaining the skin's structure and elasticity, and as we age, their production naturally declines. By boosting collagen and elastin production, Subnovii Plasma can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
Subnovii Plasma is a versatile treatment that can be used to address a wide range of skin concerns, from wrinkles and fine lines to scarring and hyperpigmentation. It can be used on all skin types and tones, and is a great option for anyone looking to achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin without undergoing surgery or other invasive procedures.
