Microneedling 101 with Kari

February 14, 2024

 

What exactly is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a safe, non-invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create controlled injuries to the skin. This ultimately triggers a natural healing response within the body, stimulating the production of elastin and collagen.

 

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling has a ton of benefits. This treatment can improve the appearance and texture of your skin. It can target concerns like hyperpigmentation, scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and pores – just to name a few!

 

What should I expect during my treatment?

Expect to relax while the numbing cream gets to work! The treatment will feel like vibration on the skin, and can even tickle in some areas. Your skin may be slightly sensitive and rosy after but don’t worry, the redness will only last between 1-3 days!

 

Am I a good candidate for this treatment?

This is something we will chat through thoroughly during your complimentary consultation. Everyone’s skin and goals are unique, so we create personalized treatment plans for each of our clients.

 

How do I optimize my results and minimize potential side effects?

Avoid using retinol for 72 hours before your appointment. You’ll also want to skip excessive sun exposure and any sunless tanners. Sunscreen is your best friend!

What to Expect From Your Lip Filler Appointment?

January 29, 2024

Lip fillers are not a ‘one size fits all’ treatment; whether patients are looking to refine lip contours, address asymmetry or proportion, restore volume, provide hydration, or just add that extra ‘oomph,’ our array of dermal fillers caters to every need.

So what are dermal fillers…

Let’s start first by understanding what these fillers consist of! Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance already found within our bodies. It plays a vital role as it is a primary component of what gives our skin structure, and is responsible for keeping our skin hydrated and plump! Common hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, like Restylane, Juvederm, and RHA products, are often also infused with lidocaine to minimize discomfort during and after treatment. Once injected, patients can expect their results to last for about 6-12 months, depending on the specific product used and the body’s natural metabolic processes.

What to do before and after a lip filler treatment:

Pre Care 

  • Avoid taking any blood thinning medications or supplements, this includes over the counter medication such as aspirin and ibuprofen for at least 7-10 days.

  • Avoid drinking alcohol at least 24 hours before your appointment.

  • Take arnica supplements a few days before your appointment to help minimize your chances of bruising and swelling.

  • Eat a small meal or snack before your appointment.

Post Care

  • Avoid strenuous exercise or extreme heat for at least 24 hours

  • Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol for at least 24-48 hours following treatment

  • Apply ice or a cold compress in 15-minute intervals for the first 12 hours. Always place a thin cloth or towel over the ice to prevent direct contact.

  • Stay hydrated, drink lots of water!

Patients can also expect swelling and bruising following their treatment, this is completely normal and should subside within 1-2 weeks. Final results are also not seen immediately as it takes 2 weeks for dermal fillers to fully settle.

Cost: Pricing varies based on the type of dermal filler used, and can range from $675-$875/per syringe. Our medical providers will conduct a personalized assessment to determine the most suitable product based on their patient’s individualized goals and needs.

This month enjoy 15% off (1) syringe of any 1ml Juvederm or Restylane collection of dermal fillers. Use code LipLove15 when booking.

Get Ready To Glow: With Skinvive

January 15, 2024

What is SKINVIVE?

Get healthy, hydrated, glowing skin from within! SKINVIVE is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable within the US designed to improve skin quality and smoothness of the cheeks. This treatment is often referred to as a ‘skin booster’ rather than a dermal filler as it adds hydration vs. adding volume or definition.

SKINVIVE will ultimately leave your skin looking hydrated and more radiant!

Who is an ideal candidate?

SKINVIVE is intended for patients looking to combat dullness, enhance overall skin quality or just replenish skin hydration. This treatment pairs perfectly with our Hydrafacials/Facials, BBL/Moxi, Microneedling or Injectables/Dermal Fillers services and can be performed on the same day allowing us to simultaneously target a variety of skin concerns in the same visit!

What does the treatment entail and is there downtime?

Our medical providers will conduct a personalized assessment to determine if SKINVIVE is right for their patient. Following this, our providers will first apply a topical lidocaine cream to the treatment area and allow that sit for about 15-20 minutes. Once the area is numb, the provider will then inject the product superficially into the cheeks in a grid-like pattern. The treatment itself typically takes 30 minutes. 

One of the greatest benefits of this treatment is that there is little to no downtime! Patients can expect to experience mild swelling and/or bruising and should refrain from heavy exercise, makeup application, or prolonged sun exposure 24 hours following their treatment.

When can I expect to see results and how long will they last?

It is important to recognize that this treatment is not a dermal filler and will not add volume to the face. In clinical studies, patients who were treated with SKINVIVE reported high satisfaction with how glowing, hydrated, refreshed, and healthy their skin looked through 6 months. Patients can expect to see a slight ‘plumping’ effect following their treatment however full results can take up to 4 weeks to see. Some patients may also require multiple treatments based on overall severity and their goals – this will be determined by their medical provider.

What is the cost of this treatment? 

$700/per area.

Schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our medical providers to see if SKINVIVE is best for you!

Setting Self-Care Goals for a Year of Radiant Transformation

January 4, 2024

As we embark on a brand new year, let’s make a promise to ourselves – a promise of radiant transformation and personal wellness. In a fast-paced world that often leaves us feeling overwhelmed and drained, it is essential to prioritize self-care to fill our mind, body, and soul. So, let’s begin this journey together by setting intentional self-care goals for the year ahead, allowing us to bask in the blissful glow of total rejuvenation.

  1. Nurture Your Body:
    Our bodies are our sanctuaries, deserving of tender love and care. Start by indulging in luxurious milk + honey spa treatments that embrace the healing power of touch. Imagine the sensation of a soothing CBD massage, expertly tailored to release tension, melt away stress, and promote deep relaxation. Treat your body to a transformative experience, leaving you feeling refreshed, energized, and radiantly vibrant.
  2. Cultivate Inner Peace:
    True transformation begins from within. Take time to cultivate inner peace and serenity through practices that resonate with your soul. Consider incorporating regular meditation sessions or trying something new, like a sound bath.
  3. Embrace the Power of Nature:
    Nature has an incredible ability to heal and restore. This year, make it a goal to immerse yourself in the beauty of the natural world. Whether it’s a 10-minute walk outside or planning monthly hikes, take the time to just reflect.
  4. Rejuvenate Your Soul:
    Nurturing your soul is just as important as caring for your physical well-being. Dedicate time to activities that spark joy within you.  Make it a priority to schedule things that generally make you happy and don’t let anything else get in the way.
  5. Prioritize Mindful Movement:
    Movement is a powerful form of self-care, fostering strength, balance, and a sense of accomplishment. Set a goal to incorporate mindful movement into your routine, whether it’s with calming yoga practices or invigorating fitness classes.

Setting self-care goals for a year of radiant transformation is an act of indulgence and a necessity for our overall well-being. Let’s commit to ourselves, promising to prioritize self-care and honor our bodies, minds, and souls. You deserve it.
