Why Summer is a Great Time for Fillers and Botox

July 10th, 2018

 

Sweet summertime. Beauty is all around with flowers blooming and gorgeous colors painted across the sunset skies. This time of year just inspires us to focus on not only the beauty all around in nature but also in our appearance.  It’s a perfect time to come to Belladerm MedSpa for fillers and Botox!  Why? Because there is no downtime!  You can get right back to enjoying the things you love to do outdoors!  Summer really is ideal for fillers and Botox because unlike many other services, they do not restrict you from enjoying the great outdoors. Treatments using lasers/IPL, BBL and chemical peels DO require that you avoid sun exposure after treatment.

A Reason to Celebrate

You will find so many gatherings and reasons to celebrate in the months of June, July and August. All of them will give you reasons to want to look your absolute best. That is why we recommend fillers and Botox to achieve a wrinkle free, youthful appearance.  Fillers and Botox are quick and easy treatments with BIG results!  Because people are more mobile during the summer means they are more seen! You will undoubtedly see people you haven’t seen for awhile and/or meet new acquaintances at the gathering such as weddings and other summer celebrations.  Likewise, summer is typically when you’ll be invited back for your class reunion, where EVERYONE always strives to look their best.

Another great thing about fillers and Botox is that you will enjoy immediate results! There is no waiting time for it to kick in and no down time where you have to hide out in recovery, so getting a filler treatment won’t keep you from the excitement and celebration. Why not put your best face forward and get in for your fillers and Botox BEFORE the big summer events!

Save on Filler at Belladerm 

We are offering an awesome promotion through the month of August on Juvederm XL filler. BUY 2 Syringes and GET 1 FREE!  This is one of the most popular choices for injectable fillers. If you are not very familiar with what a filler is or what it does, let’s go over the basics. Fillers help reverse the changes associated with aging by utilizing hyaluronic acid to improve the appearance of facial lines, folds – like the smile lines (we call parentheses) that form around your mouth. It smooths wrinkles, restores volume and enhances facial features.

What the Liquid Face Lift can do for you:

  • Fill in wrinkles and fold, such as smile lines and marionette lines
  • Smooth out frown lines, crows feet and forehead lines
  • Enhance and lift cheeks
  • Restore volume to flattening and sagging areas
  • Lift eyebrows up to their youthful position
  • Hide bags under eyes
  • Reduce jowls and create a straighter jaw line
  • Plump lips and smooth out lip wrinkles
  • Lift up sagging corners of the mouth

We Are Here to Help

Remember, consultations at Belladerm are ALWAYS free. We love spending time educating patients on how each service works and might meet their needs. Please call us at 763-494-9905 to chat or schedule a consultation. Fillers have consistently been gaining popularity year after year and they produce beautiful results. We love to see what it does for patients when they see a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Come check it out for yourself!

To make it extra special, here are four fun things to do this 4th of July:

  1. Fourth of July Progressive Picnic Party: Host a neighborhood progressive picnic party. Encourage participants to make a side dish or a summer appetizer. Each participant would open their home to guests and have the opportunity to taste a variety of dishes and then vote for their favorite one. The host could also provide a special prize.  All the participants could chip in to cover the cost. The prize could be a summer theme like baseball tickets and a picnic basket full of goodies.
  2.  Visit A State Or National Park: Why not enjoy the best of the land that the country has to offer?  Scenic views from protected areas are breathtaking. You’re sure to discover something new in the great outdoors.  It is a great time to take in fresh air and get exercise while exploring new places with other like-minded outdoor enthusiasts.

  4. Plan a late night Fourth of July dinner: Enjoy it under the night sky while viewing the fireworks. Pick a spot to watch the fireworks and bring a comfy blanket and pillow. You can go on a date with that special someone or make it a celebration with friends and/or family.

Five ways to Celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day

May 3rd, 2018

 

Mother’s Day only comes but once a year. It is chance for kids of all ages to take time out to appreciate mom for all she does to keep family happy and healthy.

Here are five ideas to celebrate mom this Mother’s Day and make her day extra special.

Take her out for a day of dining and shopping! What mom really loves most is spending time with you!  To make the experience all about her, why not spend the day together doing what she loves? Furthermore, if shopping is not her thing, take her to a play or the movies instead, then hit her favorite restaurant.

Plan a picnic and bring all her favorite picnic foods. Mother’s Day comes at a perfect time of year to picnic!  Everything is in bloom with the fragrant air and beautiful surroundings, why dine inside? Bring along a game of Croquet or lawn darts and get a fun prize for the winner.

Breakfast in Bed. Let her sleep in and serve her an elegant breakfast in bed with mimosa and her favorite breakfast.  Try a new quiche recipe.  She will appreciate your  effort. Bring her fresh cut flowers along with big smiles from the “wait staff.”  Include some additional surprises, like a homemade photo album with fun memories of the past year.

Plant some flowers. If you have some extra space in your garden, you can create a real, live Mother’s Day canvas. First, buy various packets of flower seeds that grow fast and well. Then have your family draw a picture or write a short message (like “We love Mom”) in the garden dirt with a stick. Drop the flower seeds into the dirt lines; then cover them up, and water every few days. Before long, your picture (or message) will be blooming, and you’ll have a Mother’s Day gift that keeps on growing.

Give her a day of pampering. At some point on Mother’s Day, mom may want some time alone for a little rest and relaxation. Make sure you get what she needs—and deserves—by asking for it in advance. For instance, a few days before Mother’s Day, ask her to give you a list of a few “services” she desires. Present her with the first one on Saturday to make it a Mother’s Day weekend experience.

Surprise mom this year with a special beauty and pampering gift from Belladerm MedSpa!  Buy a $150 gift certificate from Belladerm MedSpa and receive a $25 gift card as a bonus to use for yourself or another special mom.

For everything mom does for you, be sure you make her Mother’s Day extra special!  Consequently, she will know how much she is appreciated and truly loved.

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! From your friends at Belladerm MedSpa.

Get Summer Slim with CoolSculpting

April 5th, 2018

Are you battling some areas of bulge?  Are you envisioning a slimmer you before summer? Have you been rocking your New Year’s resolution but still can’t seem to lose the belly fat or those annoying love handles? Have you considered CoolSculpting? CoolSculpting consistently ranks as the top choice for non-surgical fat reduction treatment!   There are so many reasons to love this proven way to wipe out fat cells!  It is a simple in-and-out process with minimal to no disruption to daily life.

At Belladerm we are seeing many patients meet their goals with ease because of CoolSculpting. Women and men alike are enjoying the benefits and are spreading the word to their friends and colleagues. Chances are, you’ve seen celebrities mention CoolSculpting, too. Celebrities have not been shy about their amazing results! CoolSculpting is proven, safe, and effective. It is FDA-approved as the fat-freezing procedure to eliminate stubborn fat.  There have been more than 4 million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide!  This year, Belladerm began using the newest method called DualSculpting, where two areas can be treated simultaneously. You guessed it, that means your treatment time just got shorter!

How CoolSculpting Destroys Fat Cells

After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same. But when we gain weight, fat cells get bigger.   CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25% by freezing them so they die off. The fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. The result is that the fat cells are gone for good! And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas. The result? A leaner, more sculpted you!

CoolSculpting Lunch & Learn at Belladerm 

We know you may have questions or just be a little apprehensive about trying something new. That’s why we are hosting personal, relaxed visits where you can drop in and find out more about how CoolSculpting can help you slim down and sculpt your physique. Every Friday from Noon to 1 PM we’ll host a Lunch & Learn at Belladerm and that will run April 20 – June 29th, 2018. We invite you to join us for lunch and learn something too!

We’re also very excited about the EXTRA savings you can receive as a Brilliant Distinctions Member through Allergan. You will receive a $200 instant rebate towards CoolSculpting treatment packages of 6 or more treatments, plus we are currently offering  15% off all packages through the month of April!  So  don’t hesitate any longer, call and reserve your spot for one of the Lunch & Learn sessions each Friday until the end of June.  We hope that gives you the nudge you need to learn just how this popular treatment can shape your body into a slimmer summer body. Many patients say that their only regret is that they waited so long to try CoolSculpting. You know, winter WILL draw to a close eventually and you want to be ready! We’ll see you soon. Call us at 763-494-9905 with any questions and to reserve your spot.

HALO and BBL – Turning Back Time

January 1st, 2018

Imagine yourself in 5 years looking younger than you look right now. That is a reality that we ALL would love, am I right? Reversing aging and actually improving your skin – not just the surface layer but on a deeper level – almost sounds too good to be true. We’re happy to share that research shows that changes CAN occur in the actual DNA of the skin cells that makes them behave like younger cells. Read on to learn more about what HALO and BBL can do for you.

BBL Laser – Turn Back the Clock 

Having healthy-looking skin can help you maintain a youthful appearance, but there are a host of aesthetic concerns that you may face as you age. For some people, it’s sun damage and brown spots. For others, it’s a red or flushed appearance or broken capillaries. Whether you notice these signs of aging on your face, your arms, your legs, or another area of your body, restoring even-toned skin can make a dramatic difference. BBL treatment can offer this change. Furthermore research done by Stanford University School of Medicine has shown an actual, deep-seated change that literally reverses years of damage does happen. All of this with no downtime, too!

BroadBand Light (BBL) treatment delivers high-intensity pulses of light that target specific skin conditions. It can be particularly effective against damage you may have experienced from a lifetime of ultraviolet light exposure. Skin conditions that are improved by BBL treatments include:

  • Pigmented lesions like freckles and age spots
  • Vascular lesions (rosacea and others)
  • Acne
  • Deeper lesions and darker types of skin

HALO HYBRID FRACTIONAL LASER – Get the Halo Glow 

The Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It simultaneously delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths in a single pass over the skin. Especially noteworthy, the ablative laser is one of the most effective treatments for improving the signs of aging. By removing the outer layers of damaged skin, the skin is forced to heal, increase collagen production and restructure, making way for tighter, rejuvenated skin. In addition the Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser focuses energy on the deeper collagen layer of skin leaving the surface of your skin largely in tact for a quicker healing time. It delivers the results of an ablative procedure with little-to-no downtime, like a non-ablative treatment. As a result you get the best of both worlds!

In the past, you had to choose between a procedure that offered really great results but required a lengthy recovery, or a procedure with a fast recovery but marginal results. Now with HALO, you get the best of both worlds: great results with minimal downtime and customization to fit different needs.

HALO targets:

  • Discoloration
  • Sun damage
  • Visible signs of aging
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Poor texture
  • Fine lines
  • Scar revision

In conclusion, these two treatments pack a solid punch and when you combine them, the results are remarkable! Don’t miss our New Year, New You special happening NOW through 2/28/18 where we are going to offer a FREE BBL* treatment to any patient who schedules a HALO treatment. Aren’t you excited about these options that we have for improving skin? We simply love seeing our patients get their glow on and restore a more youthful look. We can almost see the confidence boost on their faces and that’s so meaningful for us. Thank you for trusting us to take care of your skin. We love our jobs!
