Botox and Dermal Fillers
Botox and dermal fillers are used to rejuvenate the face where wrinkles and fine lines appear. Dermal fillers can also be used to augment, or enhance, features of the face for a desired look.
There are a variety of fillers available to you, including lip fillers, depending on what area of the face is being treated and the amount of correction needed. Our Master Injector, Naunie Maddox, who is a former injector trainer, has over a decade of experience, and she has the unique ability to use Botox and dermal fillers in our Franklin, TN, office with advanced techniques.

Each person reacts differently, but there may be some swelling, that will subside. Because these treatments can take several visits to perfect your look, we do not recommend having these treatments performed too close to a special event, especially if you have not used Botox or dermal fillers in the past.

As we age, we lose collagen, fat, and bone in our face resulting in loose, sagging skin. If you want to subtly improve your appearance, without undergoing a facelift or liposuction procedure, a thread lift can help you reach your aesthetic goals. Often, thread lifts are combined with Botox and dermal fillers to achieve a natural, rejuvenated look.
Ritz Med Spa is one of very few offices in the Nashville area to offer thread lifts. Reach out to us to learn more about how thread lifts can help you achieve your beauty goals.
Threads also stimulate a selective inflammatory response, which triggers the body’s natural healing process. As part of this healing process, the body produces new collagen proteins and strengthens of existing ones. Collagen is one of the most important components of the skin and is responsible for how smooth, tight, and youthful-looking the skin is. As time passes after your initial treatment, the results of this selective inflammatory response gradually produce beautiful, more dramatic looking skin rejuvenation.
A thread lift is an excellent way for you to improve the appearance of your skin without surgery or extensive downtime. Contact the team at Ritz Med Spa to determine if you are a candidate for thread lift.
Venus Viva is a Radio Frequency Micro-needling treatment that improves the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin textures, acne scars, stretch marks, and some hyperpigmentation. If you want a skin resurfacing treatment without a lot of downtime, a series of three Venus Viva treatments may be right for you. For no additional charge, we add PRP, which significantly improves the treatment results and recovery.

The downtime after a Venus Viva procedure depends on how aggressive of a treatment you and your aesthetician determine will meet your beauty needs. Your downtime will also depend on how sensitive your skin is, but most of our clients are red for only 24 hours. For the first 24 hours after your treatment, you should avoid sun exposure, rigorous exercise, saunas, and your regular skin care routine.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing delivers highly focused beams of light and intense heat to resurface the skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, scars, sagging lax skin, small blood vessels, and other skin concerns. This type of laser skin rejuvenation stimulates the body to start making new collagen. As a result, over time deeper facial folds and scars will be filled in, creating a more smooth and youthful appearance.
For moderate to severe skin issues, Ritz Med Spa uses an ablative laser system, called the SmartSkin CO2 Fractional Micro Ablative Laser. For mild to moderate skin concerns, Ritz Med Spa uses a non-ablative laser system, called the Icon 1540 Fractional Laser.

As with most laser treatments for your face, you should avoid sun exposure and harsh chemicals on your face for two to four days. Our aestheticians also recommend that you use high-quality moisturizers to protect your skin as you heal. Most of our clients are ready to return to their normal beauty routine in two to four days.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Intense pulsed light (IPL), also known as a Photofacial, is a broad-spectrum light that treats pigment, especially brown spots and sun damage, redness, rosacea, and broken capillaries. Intense pulsed light is a very common laser treatment that many of our clients request all over their bodies, including the face, neck, décolleté, hands, and arms. Contact our team for more information or to schedule a consultation.
For instance, if you are treating brown spots with IPL, after your treatment, the brown spots will darken in a few days to a week, eventually revealing a more even skin tone. Or, if you are treating rosacea and broken capillaries with IPL, the skin laser treatment will cause your body to break down and remove the damaged tissue.
Pellevé is an aesthetic skin treatment used to improve the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. Our Pellevé treatment uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of skin, prompting fresh collagen production and skin tightening. Pellevé is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that requires no downtime, which makes it a popular solution for our clients with aging skin. Contact our team to learn more about Pellevé, or to schedule a consultation.
A small handheld treatment wand is then applied to your skin, causing you to feel a deep warmth. Most patients find the warmth quite comfortable, but if you start to experience any discomfort, just let your practitioner know, and she will make changes to improve your comfort.
When the radiofrequency energy reaches the deeper layers of your skin, the body will be encouraged to create more collagen. This new collagen production will begin right away and will continue over the coming weeks.
The entire skin treatment is complete in under an hour, and it may be as short as 30 minutes.
Most Ritz Med Spa clients experience the greatest benefit from three treatment sessions, but you may see some significant improvements after your very first session. Each treatment is planned about one month apart to allow time for new collagen growth.
No. Pellevé requires no recovery time, because this skin rejuvenation treatment is able to access the deeper layers of skin to start the repair process without harming the top layer of skin in any way. Some clients report mild skin irritation and temporary swelling, but these symptoms will usually resolve within just hours. Most of our clients can go on with their days immediately.
Most of our Pellevé patients maintain positive results at six-months post treatment. To maintain your best results, our team recommends that you schedule touch-up Pellevé sessions once or twice each year.
