Top Two Reasons to Get Dermal Filler this Summer-Do’s and Don’ts

July 6th, 2017

There are two reasons why summer is a great time to get filler. The first reason is the sun does not affect your aftercare in that you don’t have to worry about being susceptible to sun sensitivity. (Although you should always wear sun protection!)
The 2nd reason is that we have one of our best deals of the year on dermal filler at Belladerm Medspa! (See special offer at the end of this blog). To ensure you have the best experience here are some Do’s and Don’ts of dermal filler treatment and aftercare.

Do’s

1. Avoid planning any important social events for 1-7 days after treatment.  If you bruise easily, you may need to plan for up to 2 weeks to heal.  Most bruises can be covered fairly well with make-up. If you have an important event like a wedding or a reunion, we recommend having fillers done 3 weeks before the special occasion as sometimes bruises can last for up to 14 days.

2. Take Arnica Montana one-day prior and the morning of injections. You can find Arnica Montana at certain drugstores and often at Wholefoods.  Don’t take it if you have high blood pressure or heart problems. This will help to keep bruising to a minimal.

3. Keep ice or a cold pack on the injection site for at least one hour after your treatment and ice as often as you can the rest of the day.

4. Do seek an experienced injector that is a nurse or doctor. The injector’s technique does matter.  An experienced injector will use a gentle touch, which helps to prevent bruising. They will know the right technique to give you the best results.

Don’ts

1. Discontinue these medications 7 days before treatment. Some of these may be needed for medical reasons, so check with your doctor first.  The reason to discontinue these is that they make your blood less likely to clot (“thinner”), which can cause bruising.  If you are on warfarin/Coumadin or Plavix, stay on it!

  • Excedrin, Asprin
  • Ibuprofen (Motrin, Aleve, Advil)
  • St. John’s Wart
  • Omega 3 fatty acids
  • Vitamin E
  • Ginseng

2. If you need pain medication, Tylenol is fine to use.

3. Do not drink alcohol 1-2 days prior to injections.

During Treatment
Discuss with your injector the results you are looking for and how much product you will need.  A 1 cc syringe of Dermal Filler is only about 1/5th of a teaspoon of product, so it would take 5 syringes of Dermal Filler to fill a teaspoon.  Your injector might apply numbing cream or have you ice about 10-30 minutes before starting the injections. This will help prevent bruising and make you more comfortable during the treatment. Some anesthetic creams constrict blood vessels slightly making bruising less likely.

After Treatment

To a large extent your results will depend on how experienced your injector is and how well he or she communicates with you about what you want in your treatment outcome and what are realistic expectations.  If you are both clear and realistic, treatments tend to go very well with amazing results! Dermal filler and Botox are wonderful non-surgical treatments that can take years off of your appearance! There are normally very little side effects and you can expect a more improved and youthful appearance.

Now is the best time to schedule you dermal filler and Botox appointment as we are offering one of the hottest deals of the summer! See below:

Celebrate Summer & Remember your Sun screen!

May 24th, 2017

Screenshot 2017-05-22 13.02.47After a long winter, hearty Minnesotans are ready to get out and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. We wait months for summer to finally get here, so it seems only logical that we want to get outdoors and bask in the beautiful sun. Enjoy the sunshine but be careful of sun over exposure!  Too much exposure to sunlight can seriously damage the skin. Some of this damage is short-term (temporary), such as sunburn. However, allowing your skin to burn can lead to future problems, such as skin cancer due to long-term skin damage.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. UV radiation can also come from tanning booths or sunlamps. The most dangerous kind of skin cancer is melanoma.

The good news? Skin cancer can almost always be cured when it’s found and treated early.

Go out and enjoy the summer sun just don’t do it without sunscreen. Be sure to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, reapply it regularly,  wear polarized sunglasses and a large brim hat to protect your face and neck.

At Belladerm, we can get you set up with the right sun screen for your skin.   For the summer months, we recommend the Epionce Daily Shield Lotion  SPF 50, Tinted .  It is perfect for direct sun exposure and for daily use.  The coverage is amazing!  It feels like a primer!!  Epionce Daily Shield Lotion  SPF 50, Tinted  sunscreen helps protect the skin from UV damage and is expertly formulated with just the right amount of color to provide a flawless finish.  Skin is perfectly protected with a natural glow!

The Key Benefits of Epionce are:

  • Broad Spectrum SPF 50
  • Sheer Tinted Formula
  • Blends Evenly For All Skin Tones and Types
  • Botanical-based Antioxidant Formula
  • Very Water Resistant
  • Paraben Free
  • Fragrance Free
  • Non Comedogenic
  • For All Skin Types

 

By all means go out and reap all of the wonderful benefits of summer but please be careful of sun over exposure! At Belladerm, we can help you with the right products. Stop by or give us a call at 763-494-9905.

Happy Summer from all of us at Belladerm Medspa!

 




Love Your Lips

May 3rd, 2017

Beautiful makeup woman with pink lipstick and long curly hair

Lips are not usually at the forefront of anti-aging efforts but they deserve attention, too. They are often one of the first parts of your face to show aging. It isn’t hard to understand why when we consider the effects of sun damage, smoking and drinking out of a straw. Even if you’ve stayed away from these crease-causing habits, unconsciously pursing your lips can also lead to wrinkles. You may have also noticed loss of lip color, overall lip definition and contour. It is time to love your lips again! 

Now you can help your lips remain soft, rosy and plump with SkinMedica HA5 Lip Plump System. It is a fabulous way to turn back the clock with a simple, 2-product system that enhances natural lip color and volume. Your lips will look firmer, smoother and better defined.

What is in it? The science behind it is pretty cool! You remember the important benefits of water-loving hyaluronic acid? Now they are available to help your lips look supple and more youthful. HA5 Lip Plump System combines the use of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides. Whether you have had your lips enhanced or are just wanting soft, moisturized and plumped lips, the HA5 Lip Plump System is a great addition to your beauty routine. It is a 2 part system: Step 1 is powered by VITISENSCE technology, a proprietary blend of plant stem cells, plant extracts and peptides that supports your skin’s ability to stay hydrated and healthy looking. Step 2’s star ingredient is benzyl nicotinate, a skin conditioner that helps enhance the appearance of lip plumpness and rosiness.

Belladerm is running a special promotion for you to try this out:

PURCHASE A FULL SIZE HA5, RECEIVE 50% OFF THE LIP PLUMP SYSTEM.  (through 6/30/17 – may not be combined with other offers)

What can a full size SkinMedica HA5 do for you?  It delivers both immediate and long term skin benefits, unlike others hyaluronic acid serums that only temporarily moisturize the surface.  HA5 has 5 different forms of HA that work synergistically to provide instant smoothing results and continuous hydration throughout the day. You’ll see the difference for yourself when you experience this new breakthrough. 

So as you can see, together with SkinMedica’s HA5 and the Lip Plump System, you will feel like a new woman and will most certainly be loving your lips (and your skin) again! We want to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day and we’ll see you soon!




CoolSculpting-A Favorite Fat Reduction of Celebrities!

April 6th, 2017

 

Overweight problem

Did you know that the CoolSculpting was voted the number one non-surgical fat reduction treatment? Probably because CoolSculpting procedure is proven, safe, and effective, which is why people, including many celebrities LOVE IT. 

The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is FDA-cleared* to eliminate stubborn fat. CoolSculpting is an innovative way to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat away with no surgery or downtime. With more than 4 million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, people everywhere are getting a better view of themselves, thanks to the one-of-a-kind Cool Sculpting procedure.  Many celebrities  have turned to CoolSculpting to eliminate stubborn fat because there is no down time and IT WORKS!

CoolSculpting Destroys Fat Cells

After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger. However, fat cells after the CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%. These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas. Your body has a fixed number of fat cells that get bigger or smaller as you gain or lose weight. When you have the CoolSculpting treatment, fat cells freeze and start to die off. During the process of cell death, fat cells begin to collapse. Over the weeks following your procedure, other cells consume the dead fat cells, which are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. The Result is the Fat Cells are Gone for Good!

Am I a Candidate?

The CoolSculpting procedure can help both women and men get rid of those stubborn bulges for good. The non-invasive treatment works on those pesky love handles that nobody really loves and even that double chin you see in the mirror every morning. From Hollywood A-listers to reality TV stars, anyone in the limelight knows that maintaining a healthy and attractive look is essential to not just looking and feeling great, but to keep getting contracts for movies, TV shows, and cover spots on national magazines. This is why so many women (and men) pay close attention to celebrity beauty trends, because who better to take beauty advice from than the people whose livelihoods depend on it?

Get Summer Ready with CoolSculpting and Laser Hair Removal

March 2nd, 2017

Woman wearing beach hat as she looks out to the seaThe month of March is the time of year we begin to think about the warmer seasons ahead. It won’t be long until we will be enjoying the warm weather in shorts and sandals! To get beach ready, we recommend CoolSculpting and Laser Hair removal to look your very best this summer!

Get Summer Ready and Slim down with CoolSculpting! CoolSculpting is taken the industry by storm since first being FDA cleared in 2010. Why the undeniable success? Because CoolSculpting targets one of the most frustrating and infuriating issues for many people – bulges of stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet or exercise. It is especially for you if you are losing hope of ever slimming your problem areas even though you are working on the eating and exercise component. This is the boost you have been wishing for because this procedure is non-surgical and results in a permanent reduction of fat cells!

How does CoolSculpting work? Based on the findings that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than surrounding tissue, CoolSculpting provides a way to freeze those fat cells, under tightly controlled circumstances.  Meanwhile, the surface skin is left unharmed and the frozen fat cells are gradually eliminated by the body’s immune system. It is an advancement over other methods of fat reduction that use intense heat, focused ultrasound, or chemical injections. This fundamental difference is important because it virtually eliminates any risk of skin, nerves, or muscles being damaged during the treatment.  

Get Summer Ready and Show off your Smooth Skin with Laser Hair Removal. For the amount of time you have put in to shaving your over the years you could have enjoyed a two week trip to Paris! The question is, why waste your valuable time? The good news is you never have to shave again with Laser Hair Removal! You can achieve soft smooth skin everywhere!

5 Things to Bring Back the Romance With Your Valentine

February 13th, 2017

???????????????????????????????????????????????????

There are some of you who may be shocked that Valentine’s Day is already this week! Others have been planning a special date for months now or have a special surprise up your sleeve, and you can hardly wait. It can be difficult to decide what to do with your Valentine to celebrate, year after year. Do you find yourself stuck doing the same things on your dates because it is just easy and you don’t have to put much effort into it? That sort of thinking is definitely void of romance and spontaneity. We’d like to encourage you to think outside the box this Valentine’s Day in order to bring back the romance with your Valentine. Here are 5 ways to heat things up this Tuesday and for years to come.

  • Nostalgia Date: This is a fun one. Have you ever recreated your first date? Go to places you went when you first started seeing each other. If you now live in a different area you can wear something you would’ve worn, and play music you were listening to back then. Share memories and reconnect on a new level.
  • Dance the Night Away: Nothing says romance like dancing! Sign up for a ballroom dance lessons with your Valentine to really heat things up. Not only will you be having fun and getting close,  you’ll get your heart rate up, too!

    To receive a free Ballroom Dance Lesson for you and your Valentine – just mention ‘Belladerm’s Ballroom Dance Gift”-compliments of Arthur Murray Twin Cities Dance Centers. They have two location, St. Paul 651-227-3200 and Minneapolis 612-920-1900. * New students only. Offer expires 2/28/17. 

  • Don’t Act Your Age: Choose something you haven’t done for a long time…something active and exciting. Competitive, perhaps? Maybe it is laser tag, go-karts, a trampoline park, rollerskating or ice skating. The options are endless but getting out of the “dinner and a movie” rut is refreshing! Try something new this year.
  • Visit a Paint/Pottery Shop: Making something together with your hands makes for a very interactive date and you’ll have a keepsake to take home in remembrance of your fun evening. Getting lost in creativity will help you have some fun, relaxing conversations, too. 
  • Don’t Forget the Little Gestures:  Leaving love notes taped on your Valentine’s steering wheel, decorating the bathroom mirror with lipstick kisses, sending steamy text messages during the day…these all sound like minor ways to show your affection, but they mean a LOT. Don’t underestimate the power of the little things!
    Have fun on Valentine’s Day, and remember: Love is not meant to be given and received just  on Valentine’s Day. Instead, it’s to be practiced every single day of the entire year. Keep it going and be sure to tell your special someone how much they mean to you every single chance you get.

 

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY from all of us here at Belladerm MedSpa!
