In the age of selfies and Zoom conference calls, we are seeing ourselves like never before. And not everyone likes what they’re looking at.

Whether tired-looking eyes, new wrinkles on the forehead, sagging jowls or thinning lips, both men and women are looking for ways to enhance their appearance. As a result, the demand for Botox and filler injections, along with other minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, is on the rise.

“Our goal is not only to help you look your best, but, just as importantly, feel your best,” says Dr. Kathleen Fearon, one of the founders of Skin Care Solutions Elite MediSpa. “Facial rejuvenation helps you age gracefully and makes you look rested. It gives you a confidence that radiates to others. It does not change you, but just makes you glow.”

As skilled master injectors, Dr. Fearon, along with Dr. Dana Bonezzi and Dr. Debra Fast, offer an arsenal of techniques to replace lost volume in the face or lips.

More than just getting rid of the “elevens” between your eyes and “parentheses” around your mouth, there is an art to using injectables and fillers. At SCS Elite MediSpa, the medical professionals combine female artistry and advanced techniques for the best results.

“We combine the newest techniques, the latest products and an artful eye to contour each individual’s facial pattern to achieve natural-looking results,” says Dr. Fearon.

The classic go-to product in facial aesthetics, Botox works by inhibiting muscle contractions.

“More clients are using Botox for prevention and not just as a treatment,” notes Dr. Fearon. “If you are not contracting the muscles, you are not creating lines, so more younger people are using it now for prevention. Botox is ideal for any age.”

SCS Elite MediSpa also specializes in the Liquid FaceLift. Using injectables, the doctors lift the jowl area by creating strings of dermal filler. Clients see a dramatic tightening and lifting of sagging jawlines, without surgery or sutures, making this non-invasive procedure one of the most requested services.

“Fillers are a great option for restoration and volume loss,” says Dr. Fearon. “There are so many unique products all targeted to treat different areas of the face, and when you fill in the deficits it gives you such a youthful contour and lift.”

Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Fearon became interested in aesthetics because so many of her patients were looking for ways to age more gracefully.

As a medical spa—with offices in Medina, Green and Wooster—SCS Elite MediSpa is a place where physicians work side-by-side with aestheticians who are well-versed in medical-grade facials, chemical peels and exfoliating treatments, such as microdermabrasion and dermaplaning.

The MediSpa also offers body rejuvenation, including CoolSculpting body contouring and laser hair removal, as well as hormone pellet therapy.

“We are grateful to all of our clients who have helped us grow into three thriving locations,” says Dr. Fearon. “We are all dedicated to meet every patient’s goals in the most budget-friendly way. Everyone is different and has different needs, so we customize every treatment to get the best results.”

Skin Care Solutions Elite MediSpa has three offices: 410 S. Court Street in Medina, 330-636-1608; 1840 Town Park Boulevard in Uniontown/Green, 330-933-6493; and 3727 Friendsville Road in Wooster, 330-465-0670. You can find out more, including hours for each location, at SCSSpa.com.
