Versa/Lips & Juvederm
We offer Versa/Lips+ and the Juvederm suite of dermal fillers. All are non-surgical procedures which involve the injection of hyaluronic acid into cheeks, lips, or the area around the mouth. Your technician will discuss your health history with you, as well as the areas you wish to focus on. A tiny needle containing the hyaluronic acid gel is injected into specific areas of the face. Depending upon the area(s), a session may take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions About Versa/Lips & Juvederm

Most patients are able to tolerate the procedure with minimal discomfort. The most commonly reported sensation is a slight burning in the treatment area. Treatment products may contain lidocaine to manage any pain or discomfort.
Patients report that swelling and pain are minimal, as is downtime.
Botox and Fillers
You’re probably familiar with the term “Botox treatment” and that’s likely because Botox was the first injectable botulinum product to arrive on the market. Today there are several other brands available, each as effective as the original. At Massage Bliss and Cryo, we primarily use Botox and Dysport.
Botulinum is a neurotoxin made from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. This toxin temporarily interrupts nerve signals to muscles, allowing the muscles to relax. Doctors use botulinum injections to treat neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), overactive bladder, chronic migraine and lazy eye conditions. Given the drug’s remarkable ability to relax facial muscles, it’s also considered one of the best non-invasive cosmetic treatments available today. Not only do these neuromodulators deliver fast results (typically within 3 to 5 days), with regular use they are proven to reduce the likelihood and severity of future wrinkling. That’s true anti-aging treatment!
Frequently Asked Questions About Botox and Fillers
Botox treats moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults. Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
For Botox, you may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with full results in 30 days, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.
For Dysport, the majority of users see improvement in just 2-3 days after treatment. It may help to improve the look of your frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 5 months.
Some patients report that injections feel like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
Our facial movements and expressions are driven by a complex network of muscles. As we age, collagen breaks down, our skin sags and facial muscle activity changes. Pulling from a thorough understanding of the facial muscle system, our trained technicians identify specific muscles to relax with botulinum to obtain desired results. There are numerous ways botulinum can be used to effectively combat the normal signs of aging. Some of the more popular applications include:
- Smoothing out the forehead by removing the horizontal wrinkles running above the eyebrows.
- Relaxing the muscles of the glabellar complex to smooth the wrinkles between the eyebrows (commonly called frown lines).
- Relaxing the wrinkles around the sides of the eyes (often referred to as crow’s feet).
- Lifting the center of the top lip (cupid’s bow) to provide a more youthful appearance.
- Giving a lift to the eyebrows to combat sagging.
- Technician skill set and experience make a difference when it comes to botulinum treatment. At Massage Bliss and Cryo, we prioritize training in order to deliver the results our clients seek.
