Milk + Honey offers our clients a wide variety of medspa treatments to help them look and feel their best. Ahead, we take a look at some of our most popular procedures, what they’re good for, and how long the results from the treatment will last.
Injectables and fillers
Injectables and fillers are minimally invasive med spa procedures that restore volume and lift the face. These products can be used all over the face to plump, smooth, and minimize the look of moderate to severe wrinkles. Dermal fillers can also be used under the eyes to diminish the look of bags and dark circles.
How long do injectables and fillers last?
The longevity of dermal fillers and injectables depends on quite a few factors, including the type of filler used, the injection location, and even the patient’s individual metabolism. Some fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, while others can last up to 5 years.
For example, Milk + Honey offers a collection of 5 different Juvederm products to treat our client’s specific needs. And while these products all fall under the Juvederm line of soft tissue fillers, their longevity tends to vary as follows:
- Juvederm Vollure – Up to 18 months
- Juvederm Voluma – up to 2 years
- Juvederm Ultra – up to one year
- Juvederm Volbella – up to 1 year
- Juvederm Ultra Plus – Up to 1 year
Laser skin treatments
Laser skin treatments like BBL photofacials and Moxie are corrective phototherapy treatments that are often used to target common skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation. Moreover, spa clients often seek these procedures for the treatment of other skincare concerns, including those associated with aging and sun damage, mild to moderate acne scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.

Again the results of a BBL photofacial will vary from person to person, but generally speaking, one or two BBL treatments will last for a few months. If you’re looking for more long-term benefits from these procedures, you will likely have to do multiple treatments a year.
Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling is a procedure where practitioners cause trauma to the skin using tiny sterile needles. These small wounds, in turn, trigger your body’s healing response, ramping up the production of collagen and elastin. By encouraging new collagen production, microneedling leaves your skin smoother, firmer, and more even-toned.
This procedure is minimally invasive, and it can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration, and even stretch marks.

For clients who opt for a microneedling procedure, it’s worth noting that it takes time to see a difference. This procedure is largely based on your body healing itself, so the results will not come overnight, and it will vary from person to person. Typically the effects of a first-round treatment will last anywhere from four to six weeks; however, that time frame may vary depending on your age, skin type, and your skin’s response to the treatment. It’s worth noting, too, that the effects of microneedling are not permanent. Even once you achieve the results you’ve been looking for, you will have to schedule maintenance treatments anywhere between 6 to 12 months apart.
Also known as microplaning or blading, dermaplaning is essentially a physical exfoliation procedure that uses a sterile scalpel to remove dead skin cells and fine hairs from your face.
This non-invasive med spa treatment reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles as well as the appearance of acne scars.

Like microneedling, the results of dermaplaning are not permanent. While most clients will see brighter, more healthy-looking skin after the first session, dermaplaning is often offered as a series of treatments —continued results will only come with continued treatment.
Whereas dermaplaning is a physical form of exfoliation, chemical peels are, well, a chemical form of exfoliation. With this procedure, a solution of acids is applied to the skin, causing it to peel and blister, making way for new skin that’s softer and smoother. Chemical peels are often used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging, treat certain types of acne, and improve the appearance of scars. Not only do chemical peels rejuvenate dull, tired skin, but they can also help prevent future damage.

Clients will often have noticeably smoother skin and a clear, bright complexion after just one treatment. Although, best results are often obtained through a series of treatments.
Like most med spa treatments, results vary depending on the individual but typically, results from chemical peels will last anywhere from three to six months after a course of treatments.
Kybella is the only non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA for facial contouring, specifically for the treatment of submental fullness — otherwise known as a double chin.
Typically, your provider will choose several injection sites where the deoxycholic acid (sold under the trade name Kybella) works by breaking down the fat in your chin. The procedure is considered non-invasive, and while there may be swelling at the injection site, there is no downtime in comparison to other procedures such as liposuction or surgery.
How long does Kybella last?
Kybella may require multiple treatments. And while the final number will vary from person to person, there should be no more than six treatments given at least one month apart. The good news is once your treatments are complete, your results will last indefinitely.
