Add a new regimen to your self-care routine
You’ve tried spin classes, meditation and oatmeal face masks. It’s time to take your self-care to a new level: preventative aging treatments.
“We’re seeing more women in their 20s and 30s doing these preventative treatments,” says Dr. Sandee Lewis, a Benessere aesthetics expert and board-certified family nurse practitioner with a Doctorate in Nursing Practice. “Young women have learned that this is a great way to maintain their skin, prevent wrinkles and boost their confidence.”
Sandee Lewis DNP is excited about the attitude change she’s seen about age management and aesthetic procedures. She says younger women aren’t afraid or embarrassed to talk about their treatments. In fact, they’re excited to share what they’ve done and talk openly about the benefits, namely feeling sexier, looking younger and improved self-esteem.
Suzanne Lilygren RN also brings advanced aesthetic experience to Benessere Clinic.
“This is just a smart thing to do,” Suzanne says. “These treatments can soften wrinkles, plump lips and sculpt bodies that these young women have worked hard to maintain.”
The Benessere Clinic team is here to help you choose the best aesthetic treatment for your needs and goals. Our top 10 treatment recommendations, all available at the clinic, are:
- Microneedling — Also called fractional collagen induction therapy, this is a minimally invasive procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. Microneedling helps generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Results typically last between six and 12 months.
- PRP/Vampire Facial® — A platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial, sometimes called the Vampire Facial®, uses your own blood as either a facial injection or topical treatment to help promote healthy skin cell activity. It’s often used with microneedling and can help treat acne scars and other scars. Results typically last between six and 12 months.
- Chemical Peel — A chemical solution is applied to your face to stimulate rapid skin cell growth by destroying the outer layer of skin. Chemical peels have been used for many years and are an effective way to improve the texture and look of your skin, especially when combined with microneedling. The results from a light chemical peel last a couple of months.
- Botox — Botox cosmetic injections to temporarily reduce muscle contractions in areas of the face that cause wrinkles, like frown lines and crow’s feet. Results typically last three to four months.
- Juvederm — Injectable dermal fillers that smooth facial wrinkles and folds, like smile lines and laugh lines around your nose, mouth and chin. Results last up to two years.
- Laser Genesis — Laser facial that improves fine lines and wrinkles, pore sizes, redness, rosacea and scars. The results can be subtle, but the overall effects can provide dramatic results after 3-6 treatments.
- Latisse — A prescription medication applied to your upper eyelids and/or eyebrows to help increase the length and sometimes thickness and darkness of your eye lashes and eyebrows. For optimal results, you must continually use this treatment.
- Trusculpt — Radio frequency technology that creates heat used for body contouring, body sculpting, fat reduction and cellulite removal. Results seen in as little as 6-8 weeks, but patients continue to see results up to 14 weeks. Studies show about 25% of fat cells in the treated area are destroyed. Trusculpt was developed as a one-time treatment but you can have additional Trusculpt treatments if more fat reduction is desired.
- IPL/Photofacial — An intense, pulsed light-based treatment used for dark spots and mottling of the skin caused by sun damage and aging. One to three treatments are usually enough to see results, but additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively skin damaged skin. Some results are permanent, but some may need maintenance treatments. Sun protection is necessary all of the time to prevent reoccurrence of the blemishes.
- Kybella — Injectable deoxycholic acid treatment that targets double chins. Once injected into the fat under your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
