Pucker Up With Restylane Silk

Full lips and lip augmentation are all the rage now. The “Kylie effect” is in full swing and everybody (well almost everyone) wants in on the action. But how big is too big? What filler is best used?  Should you go with a doctor or nurse practioner as your provider? So pucker up (pun intended) and let’s get started.

Research. Research. Research.

Before you go to your first appointment, do your research. Browse the internet, ask friends and people you know about their experience, look up before and after photos. The internet is a great place to find information on the different fillers (Restylane, Voluma, Juvederm etc) available on the market today and compare treatment cost.

Determine How Big You Want To Go

Do you want va-va-voom lips or are you more of a natural fullness kind of person? This is an important question to answer before your appointment. It will help you guide the provider in the direction you want to go and ensure you are happy with your results.

Set Realistic Expectations

Be honest with yourself and set realistic goals. The best way is to begin gradually and incrementally go from there.

Set A Budget

The cost of fillers can range anywhere from $400 and upwards depending on whether a doctor or nurse practioner administers the treatment. Side bar – ensure that whoever performs the procedure is board certified. Keep in mind that most fillers on the market today are hyaluronic acid-based and will be absorbed by the body over time. In other words, there’s upkeep involved to maintain your look.


At WellMedica, we prefer Restylane for patients who want lips that look natural and not overdone. Restylane® Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older.

If you’re interested in plumping up your lips for that perfect pucker, call 703.787.9866 to book a complementary consultation with Dr. Dima Ali.

Genveve for Urinary Incontinence image

Geneveve for Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is somewhat of a taboo subject. People have it but many are embarrassed to talk about it. They assume it’s hereditary or a part of the aging process and therefore a lifelong ailment. The good news is, it’s neither, and most cases can be reversed with treatment. Let’s dive in!

So what is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence basically means the loss of bladder control. It can appear in the form of leaking when you sneeze or cough or the immediate, pressing urge to use the bathroom. Urinary incontinence is not only a physical condition – it can take an emotional, social and psychological toll as well.

Types of UI

Stress Urinary Incontinence

This is perhaps the most common type of UI. It is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles that have stretched over time.

Overactive Bladder or Urge Incontinence

Overactive Bladder is another common type of UI. As its name suggests, it is the urgent need to empty your bladder, sometimes before you have a chance to get to the bathroom. Your brain signals your bladder to empty itself out, even when it isn’t full. That’s what causes the constant “urge” to go.

Functional Incontinence

This is occurs when a mental or physical condition prevents you from getting to the toilet in time. For example, a broken limb can delay  your ability to remove your pants in time.

Mixed Incontinence

Experiencing more than one type of urinary incontinence.


When to see a Doctor

  • Causes you to restrict your daily activities or social life
  • Is indicative of an underlying problem
  • Causes related injury (falls, bumps, etc.) while rushing to the toilet

Vaginal Lift and Vaginal Tightening

Vaginal Lift

Many people haven’t heard about one of the newest aesthetic treatments on the market today – a vaginal lift. When it comes to the appearance of aging many people first think of wrinkles, grey hairs, and weight gain – just to name of few. Many, however, do not think about how this can affect the other, more private parts of their body.  Unfortunately, as our face ages, so does EVERYTHING else.  For women our vagina can start to sag, and become looser over time.  It’s definitely a weird concept to think of, but it makes sense as the other parts of us age relatively in the same manner.

Unwrap A Slimmer You with UltraShape Power

The holiday season brings a lot of joy and excitement. With the crisp winter air, the aroma of gingerbread and mulled wine wafting through the air, and jolly cheers all around, the holiday is definitely a festive season. Along with the festivities, also comes quite a bit of hustle and bustle with lots of hosting or attending parties, visiting friends and family as well rounding up the work year. It also a time when you want to look your best while making all these appearances. But let’s face it – in between enjoying all the holiday delicacies and fun-filled activities, who really has the time (or wants) to exercise? Well, UltraShape Power is exactly what you need.

UltraShape Power is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body shaping procedure to use focused, pulsed ultrasound energy to selectively destroy fat cells. It is the gold standard in non-invasive body contouring treatments.

So how does UltraShape Power work?

Unlike other fat-reduction procedures, UltraShape® does not use heat or freeze fat. UltraShape® Power uses gentle ultrasound energy that destroys fat cells in your body which are then released as triglycerides, processed through the liver and flushed naturally from the body. It doesn’t damage any surrounding tissue, nerves or muscles.

What is treatment like?

For optimal results, a series of 3 quick and painless, 45-minute treatments spaced two weeks apart are recommended. This gives your body time to flush out destroyed fat cells in between sessions. Plus, you can drop up to 2 dress sizes!

Are there any side effects?

No. Besides destroying fat cells, UltraShape® Power is gentle and doesn’t damage any surrounding tissue, nerves or muscles.

How long does it last?

The fat cells that are treated are destroyed and cannot grow back. However, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to sustain results and so that fat cells in untreated areas do not increase.

So this holiday season, instead of worrying about looking good in your little black dress or fitted tuxedo jacket, let your hair down and let UltraShape® Power do the heavy lifting for you.
