Broaden your 2020 Goals to include BroadBand Light™ (BBL) Therapy!

As our skin is exposed to a variety of elements over time, it begins to wrinkle, dull and show damage. BroadBand Light™ (BBL) Therapy addresses a wide range of these skin wellness conditions and acts to restore your skin back to its natural youthful glow!

Do you struggle with skin firmness, freckles or age spots? We here at Florida Aesthetics have just the service for all your skin wellness needs: BroadBand Light™ (BBL) Therapy! Reverse years of aging, sun damage and hyperpigmentation with this non-invasive light therapy today!

How does it work? BBL works gently and safely using light energy. This photothermal energy heats the upper layers of your skin. As the target areas absorb this light and heat, your skin cells will be stimulated and begin to regenerate.

This process works to:

  • Eliminate fine vessels that cause redness
  • Reduce unwanted melanin that produces sun spots
  • Make pores less noticeable
  • Allow uneven pigmentation to fade

What all skin wellness issues does BroadBand Light™ (BBL) Therapy treat?

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Redness
  • Reduce unwanted melanin
  • Small Blood Cells
  • Wrinkles / loss of firmness
  • Freckles / Age Spots
  • Unwanted hair
  • Uneven skin textures
  • Skin damage
  • Hyperpigmentation

What are the benefits of BBL? In addition to being a solution to all your skin wellness needs, BBL is also a non-surgical treatment that requires virtually no recovery time! You will be able to return to work or your daily activities immediately. While results do vary from patient to patient – typically, you can start seeing smoother and more vibrant skin after only one treatment!

Is 2020 your year to look and feel younger? BroadBand Light™ (BBL) Therapy sounds like just the treatment for you! Contact us today and we’ll get your appointment scheduled!

How to plump up your cheeks

How to plump up your cheeks

Are you as curious about the injectable cheek filler “Voluma XC” as I was? I’ve seen friends and co-workers of mine who have had the treatment done and their before and afters were fantastic! With all the new videos of how to do your makeup, beautiful cheeks are everywhere. I did my own research, went in for a consultation, thought about it for a little while, and then decided I have nothing to lose and felt it would be a win win for me.  I got it done about a month ago so now I can tell you how my experience getting Voluma XC went.

Voluma XC is made by Allergan, the maker of Botox and Juvederm. Like Juvederm, Voluma is mainly comprised of Hyaluronic Acid but it’s thicker than Juvederm so it stays in place better, is injected deeper, and lasts longer. I’ve gotten both Botox and Juvederm in the past and for me, the injectables are the way to go to combat the visible signs of aging. It’s FDA approved and it’s supposed to last for up to 2 years!

The reason I knew it was for me was because I’ve always hoped for a way to plump up the cheeks because of how mine work. When I smile, my cheeks aren’t round and smooth, but have a flatness that’s almost an indent. I don’t like to wear my hair up, and I see myself in pictures and I appear to have this long, narrow face with no shape to it. I envy at girls with beautiful high cheekbones, that glow when they wear blush and highlighter. I wanted those pronounced high cheekbones and round apples. Looking in the mirror I would push them high and imagine what they would look like. I attempt to use makeup and give myself the illusion of having pronounced cheeks, but sometimes I end up just looking like a girl with too much makeup on.I considered the other options out there on the market and dove into my research. After much spent time, lots of before and after pictures, and a pros and cons list, I decided I really wanted this for myself.

After my full consultation with Nelia, I was confident and so was she that I would enjoy the results. She decided we would start with one syringe, putting half in each side, then if we decided that another syringe would benefit me, we would be able to split another into both, equalling 2 total.  I was expecting it to hurt more than getting Botox and Juvederm, but it actually hurt much less, and can easily be tolerated without much ice or numbing needed. I loved the way it was looking with the single syringe, but we opted for the second because my cheeks were really flat and needed the help.

Results are visible immediately, and I LOVED the results! I like to stay pretty private about what I change, so I decided I wasn’t going to tell my fiance or anyone else. I went home that day, and I felt he would kind of take second looks at me, but couldn’t put his finger on what was different. We went to dinner with two of our very close friends that night, and my girlfriend complimented how great my makeup looked, but that was it. I am most positive that no one seemed to notice anything was injected into my face. I had no bruising, no swelling, and this beautiful new shape to my face that I was obsessed with! Even putting makeup on became more fun.  A week or so later, we were helping my grandparents pack to move closer to us, and coming across pictures of my late mother, my fiance made the comment “Oh look at this! You definitely have her high cheekbones.” I blushed and my confidence went through the roof. I was very pleased to say the least. I’m someone who has over the years been quite skeptical, maybe even a little judgemental of those girls that go get a face full of botox and fillers, but now I have a different kind of respect for it.

When you talk to the injector, you see the passion, its like its their art and your face is their canvas. Any fears I had, she helped me overcome. Her honesty and personal desire for natural looking results made me forget I was even nervous in the first place. She showed me her work she had done in the past on previous patients who were so elated with results they allowed her to use them.

Now you might be thinking, what if I didn’t like them? Well, I had the same question as you. As I explained my fear of the possibility of hating my new cheeks or being too “fake” looking, it was explained to me that in the event that does happen, the filler can be dissolved. That changed everything. At that point I was ready to get something I really had wanted for a long time. I was so glad that I went through with it and I have ZERO regrets. The cost was so reasonable for something that lasts you 2 years and the process was smooth and effortless.

Overall, my experience with Voluma was what I wanted, and exceeded my expectations. I am 1 month post and am still enjoying the results and look of my new high cheekbones. I think this may be one treatment I may continue getting over the years. If you are thinking about it, go see Nelia and get your free consult! You have nothing to lose and some pretty cheeks to gain!

Collagen, the secret behind healthy skin

Collagen, the secret behind healthy skin

 

Our skin is a complex organ that serves as the first layer of protection against any potential harm.  What keeps it youthful, firm, and toned is collagen.  Collagen is found in the middle layer of skin, as well as in our bones.  It provides structure and support to the extent that it makes up most of the skin.  This protein protects us from wrinkles and fine lines.  As we get older, however, collagens ability to keep us looking youthful diminishes.  Why?

  1. Production slows with age
  2. Sun damage reduces its efficacy
  3. Smoking
  4. Oxidative stress from exposure to pollution and UV radiation

Fortunately, these factors dont mean the end of your youthful appearance.  Different procedures help slow down the degeneration of collagen and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.  Below are some basic facts about two different procedures that address the issue of skin aging and damage.

 

Microneedling:

  • Also known as skin needling
  • Minimally-invasive and non-surgical
  • Uses a pen-shaped medical device with tiny needles to penetrate the skin at very high speeds
  • Rebuilds elasticity
  • Stimulates skin cell production
  • Results in the formation of new tissue layers of collagen and elastin

Laser Skin Tightening:

  • Non-invasive light treatment
  • Little or no recovery time
  • Uses laser to tighten your skin simply and effectively
  • Revitalizes your appearance

 

Both microneedling and laser skin tightening are safe and effective procedures to treat signs of aging that result from decreased collagen production.  If youre interested in learning more about how to maintain a youthful appearance and collagen production, talk to our aesthetician at Florida Aesthetics today! Results may vary depending on the individual.
