Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center
I am so grateful that I found Dr. Shanthala. From the moment you enter her practice, you instantly feel calm and comfortable. The office staff are so friendly and informative regarding the process to put you at ease during your first visit. Dr. Shanthala took the time to sit with me and discuss my current aging concerns and goals without ever making me feel rushed or pressured. She thoroughly explained the anatomy of my face in a way that no other doctor has before and explained the important roles that each muscles plays in my facial expressions. It was obvious from the start that Dr. Shanthala is truly passionate about helping her clients look and feel their best. One of the most unique aspects of Dr. Shanthala’s practice is the fact that she takes the time to consult and educate you prior to completing any treatments or cosmetic procedures. She then takes before and after photos to track your progress and allow you to visually compare your results. Let me tell you, I was BLOWN away. After one Botox treatment with Dr. Shanthala, my face had a more youthful and wrinkle free glow without looking fake or frozen. I can’t tell you how many people came up to me within the first week of my treatment to tell me how healthy and well rested I looked. 5 stars are not enough for this amazing doctor. She treats each person as an individual and helps you to feel beautiful and confident. If you are considering trying Botox or any type of cosmetic treatment for the first time do not hesitate to book your consultation now. I promise, you will not regret it. I walked into Dr. Shanthala’s office looking to do something and ended up doing things totally different then what was planned. And I’m glad I went with her recommendation. She truly thinks about her clients and wants you to spend on your most needed improvement. Your money will be wisely spent if you listen to her.... Dr. Shanthala is truly amazing at what she does! She’s thoughtful and caring. Listens to your wants and needs and advises what she thinks is best. I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I’m an instant gratification kinda gal. Who thinks more is always better! She cares about her patients and would never do anything that wasn't in their best interest just because that’s what we wanted and were willing to pay. The atmosphere is welcoming and everyone is friendly and kind. I always feel comfortable from the beginning of the procedure, to the end. She talks you through and makes sure you know exactly what’s happening and when. I joked with Marciel as I was booking my next appointment that I will always come to Dr. Shanthala until she stops practicing and even then I may beg her to treat me from home! My lips have never felt fuller and I’ve never had such confidence as I do now!... Ever since I was seven, my left labia has always been a bit bigger than the right side, and to be honest, I was going to perform labiaplasty on myself because it bothered me too much. And I didn't even know that this existed until I spontaneously search for other women with the same problem. I was hesitant on paying $2K+ on this surgery because I am only 19, full-time college student, and... Words can’t express my gratitude! 100% satisfied. Wonderful doctor with great bedside manner. Highly recommend! Five star service.

Treatment for wrinkles and fine lines

Wrinkles and Fine lines treatment at ShanthalaMD

What are the causes of fine lines and wrinkles?

There are many factors that contribute to the onset of fine lines leading to severe wrinkles. The following are the most significant causes of Aging.
Wrinkles are a by-product of the aging process. With age, skin cells divide slower, and the inner layer of the skin, called the dermis, begins to thin. The network of elastin and collagen fibers, which support the outer layer, loosens and unravels, which results in depressions on the surface. With aging, skin also loses its elasticity, becomes more fragile and is less able to retain moisture.

In addition, oil-secreting glands are less efficient which makes the skin drier and appear more wrinkled. All of these factors contribute to the development of wrinkles.

Facial muscle contractions

Lines between the eyebrows (frown lines) and lines jutting from the corner of the eyes (crow’s feet) are believed to develop because of the underlying muscle contractions. Smiling, frowning, squinting, and other habitual facial expressions cause these wrinkles to become more prominent. Over time, the expressions coupled with gravity contribute to the formation of jowls and drooping eyelids.

Sun damage

Excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation (too much sun) can result in premature aging of the skin. Premature aging of the skin is called photoaging. The ultraviolet sunrays that cause photoaging damage collagen fibers (the major structural proteins in the skin) and elastin fibers (the protein that causes skin to stretch). Both of these fibers are important components of the skin’s connective tissue and without them, the skin loses its strength and flexibility, leading to wrinkles.

Smoking

Healthy skin perpetually regenerates. While old collagen is broken down and removed, new collagen is being produced and installed. Researchers have found that smoke causes a marked reduction in the production of new collagen. A lack of new collagen results in the development of wrinkles. This may also be due to the lack of blood supply to the skin caused by smoking.

Wrinkle Treatments


CO2 Laser Resurfacing

CO2RE is a fractional therapy CO2 laser for skin resurfacing. Your skin is treated with a matrix of laser light points that vary in intensity, depending on your skin type and desired treatment results. The result is a treatment that is fast, more comfortable and requires less downtime than traditional resurfacing – enabling you to get back to your daily routine much quicker.

Fillers

Injected under the skin’s surface, dermal fillers can be used to plump lips, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and fill volume loss. We offer both semi-permanent and temporary fillers to treat deep wrinkles, frown lines, smile lines, vertical lip lines, marionette lines, hollowed cheeks and eyes, declining lip volume, and acne scars.

Neuromodulators

These solutions are injected into the skin cause certain nerves to no longer tell muscles to contract, thus smoothing the skin.

  • Painless
  • Safe and effective
  • Results in 2 weeks or less

Ultherapy®

This procedure uses safe ultrasound energy to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, resulting in lifted and tightened areas such as the eyebrows, neck, and under the chin in only one treatment

  • Non-invasive
  • Results after one treatment
  • Perfect for both men and women

Microneedlng

Using tiny microneedles, the device creates invisible micro-perforations into the epidermis. The skin uses its natural repair mechanism producing collagen and elastin to repair themicro-perforations. Your skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity.

  • Lifts and tightens
  • Rejuvenates
  • Minimizes pore size

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

A cutting-edge form of regenerative medicine using the body’s own plasma to restore collagen in the skin.

Microdermabrasion

A superficial cosmetic procedure that can improve skin texture, blackheads and whiteheads, and surface hyperpigmentation.

  • For all skin types
  • Safe and effective
  • Fast procedure

Chemical Peels

A mild acid which chemically exfoliates the top layer of skin. This exfoliation signals the cells inside the skin to produce more rapidly, which can help skin turnover faster and prevent pores from clogging.

PDO Threads

A PDO Thread lift is a type of face lift that is often referred to as the “lunch hour lift”. Absorbable threads stimulate collagen growth in the skin, thus creating a lifted appearance.
