Frequently Asked Questions about our Medspa in Durango

What is Tox?

Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a purified form of botulinum toxin into specific muscles to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, causing them to relax and smoothen the skin's surface, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Is Tox Safe?

When administered by a qualified and experienced healthcare professional like Ashley Sutton, Botox is considered safe by the FDA. However, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with Botox injections, such as temporary bruising, swelling, or mild discomfort at the injection site. It is essential to consult with a trained practitioner and discuss your medical history to ensure the treatment is suitable for you. You may request a free consultation with Ashley to go over any questions or concerns you may have!

What’s the difference between Xeomin, Dysport, and Botox?


Xeomin and Dysport are both similar to Botox and are approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Just like Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are injectable treatments that contain botulinum toxin type A. They work by temporarily relaxing targeted muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines. While there are slight differences in their formulations and dosing, Xeomin and Dysport are used for similar purposes as Botox and can be effective options for those seeking wrinkle reduction and facial rejuvenation.

What is IPL or Photo Rejuvenation?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, and it’s a non-invasive cosmetic procedure commonly known as Photo Rejuvenation. IPL uses high-intensity pulses of broad-spectrum light to target various skin concerns such as sun damage, age spots, freckles, and uneven skin tone. The light energy is absorbed by the targeted areas, stimulating collagen production and promoting a more youthful, even-toned complexion. IPL Photo Facials are typically performed in a series of treatments, with minimal downtime and relatively low risk when performed by a skilled professional like Ashley Sutton.

What are the best facials in Durango, CO?

When it comes to facial treatments and aesthetic wellness, the best choice depends on your specific skin concerns and desired outcomes.

IPL targets sun damage, age spots, and uneven skin tone, promoting a rejuvenated complexion. Microneedling stimulates collagen production, improving skin texture, scars, and wrinkles.
