Although aging is supposed to endow us with wisdom, maturity, and financial security, wrinkles are unfortunately included as part of the ‘package’. The good news is that aging can be made graceful with several in office treatments designed to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
Laser technology has responded with a facial wrinkle treatment that can diminish unflattering lines around the eyes and mouth. The Smoothbeam laser is being used successfully as a wrinkle treatment device to soften the appearance of so-called ‘laugh lines’ and ‘crow’s feet’.
Smoothbeam laser is a new, non-invasive way to treat wrinkles. It treats fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. This laser cools the skin and then delivers a laser beam which targets and heats the collagen in the upper dermis while protecting the epidermis.
4 treatments spaced out every 4-6 weeks are generally needed. Smoothbeam does not produce immediate results. It takes approximately 6 months to 1 year to begin seeing results.
A consultation with Dr. Buhac is required prior to any laser treatment.
Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein injected in small amounts directly into the facial muscle. This temporarily blocks the release of the chemical that causes the muscle to contract, enabling the area to relax and appear smooth. The "11's" or vertical frown lines that appear between the brows are the most common area for injections.
Performed solely by Dr. Buhac Botox Cosmetic injections are a quick, in-office procedure with now downtime. Results typically last for approxiamately 3 to 5 months.
Hyaluronic Acid gel fillers plump up and smooth out mild to moderate facial wrinkles. Great for those lines that appear around your mouth, the filler is injected into the fold to plump up and smooth out the wrinkle. Fillers may also be used to augment the size and shape of lips.

Chemical Peels such as glycolics can help to shed the dead outer layer of skin revealing smoother, radiant more even skin. Glycolics also help to diminish signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. They also help to stimulate your skins natural production of collagen and elastin. They are available in varying strengths and are performed by a licensed medical aesthetician. A series of at least 6 glycolic peels is recommended. For a full list of all the peels offered at Spa City Spa we invite you to browse our brochure.
microdermabrasions are a wonderful alternative to a glycolic and are perfect for someone with a more sensitive skin type. At Spa City Spa we use both the aluminum oxide crystal microderm as well as a diamond microderm machine. This mechanical exfoliation sheds the outer layer of skin and reveals a fresh, new layer skin. With each treatment you begin to see a smoothermore radiant complexion. A series of at least 6 microdermabrasions is recommended.
