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! Say goodbye to bumps, razor stubble, and skin irritation. Laser Hair removal leaves you looking fabulous – all the time! At Belladerm Medspa we offer personalized treatments. Your personalized treatment plan is designed by our trained medical professionals to remove hair from any skin type, complexion and body area. Another great thing about Laser Hair Removal is that it’s quick and easy!  
You’re typically in and out in about an hour. And because the process is non-invasive – there is no down time!

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!

 

 

 




VISIA Skin Analysis- What does your Skin Reveal?

February 2nd, 2017

The first step to finding a solution to your skin care concerns is discovering what your skin reveals. At Belladerm we use a system called VISIA Skin Analysis.  The VISIA system helps us to determine the specific condition of your skin so we can customize a plan to meet your skincare goals. Everyone’s skin tells a story, depending on type, exposure to sun etc. We have all had a different walk of life and finding a customized treatment plan that fits the needs of our clients is what we are all about at Belladerm. The VISIA Skin Analysis is the very first step in the process of correcting skin damage and improving fine lines and wrinkles, among other skin care concerns.

A VISIA imaging session captures key visual information for six areas affecting complexion health and appearance: wrinkles, spots, pores, evenness (color variation in the skin tone), porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in pores), and UV spots (characteristic of photo damage, typically from overexposure to sun).

Our Clients love VISIA

Dez from the KS 95 morning show came in last week for a VISIA Skin Analysis. From there we determined a hydrafacial was the first step in her treatment plan. We chose the HydraFacial for her to detoxify, rejuvenate and protect her skin which was perfect place to start for her.  She loved her experience so much she tweeted about it saying “My skin has never felt better! Thank you so much Robin!! You are the best! Have a great day. See you soon!”

“Xo Dez”

Say Goodbye to Fine Lines with the SkinPen

December 6th, 2016

 

screenshot-2016-12-04-15-40-17

Lucky for us women, we live in a day and age where there are many nonsurgical options available to preserve our skin and reverse the signs of aging. One of the most effective and technically advanced procedures available to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles is the SkinPen. With the SkinPen the results are immediate and there is no down time so you can resume your regular activity immediately following your procedure.

What is so amazing about the SkinPen?

SkinPen stimulates the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. As we age and battle chronic skin conditions such as acne, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates. The deterioration leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture.

How does the SkinPen work?

SkinPen comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This process results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collage and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The end result skin is beautiful youthful looking skin.

What you can expect from you SkinPen microneedling procedure:

  • A comfortable experience
  • A short procedure time, approximately 30 minutes
  • A plan for optimal results, typically 3-6 procedures.
  • Mid post-procedure effects, similar to moderate sunburn.
  • Effective on all body parts, including face, neck and décolletage.
  • Safe for all skin types, light to dark.
  • Ideal any time of the year
  • Quick 24 hour recovery time.
  • Little to no down time
  • Beautiful long lasting results.

We recommend three treatments about 4-6 weeks apart, but you can definitely see results after just one treatment.

So do something special just for you and treat yourself to a SkinPen procedure. You’re sure to love the results and look fab just in time for the holiday season.

Introducing Juvederm Volbella

November 21st, 2016

Beautiful woman portrait face close up studio gray background

We love telling you about new treatments and this one is sure to please! Allergan’s newest filler is for the lip area and it is called Volbella.  It’s also the only facial filler clinically proven to last up to 12 months in the lips with a single treatment. Made from hyaluronic acid using patented technology, Volbella is designed to be soft, smooth, long-lasting and have a greater lift capacity than many other fillers on the market. It can be used to enhance lip shape or restore lost fullness. 

What you’ll especially love: Volbella delivers a smooth, natural-looking result as it adds subtle volume to the lips and softens the appearance of lines, which is very important when treating the lips and surrounding area. In addition, its unique technology allows it to be less hydrophilic than other dermal and lip fillers, allowing it to absorb less water and therefore reduce the amount of swelling that can occur in the lips, compared to traditional dermal and lip fillers.

What it can do for you: 

  • Diminish vertical lip lines (a.k.a. smoker’s lines)
  • Accentuate the border of your lips
  • Plump up your lips to make them fuller
  • Enhance the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip)

What treatment is like: This latest innovation also has built in painkilling lidocaine anesthetic to make the injection procedure as pain-free for the patient as possible and won’t cause you down time.

To find out more or schedule a consultation give us a call at 763-494-9905.

There is nothing more attractive than a pair of beautiful eyes and what better way to show them off then with long, luscious lashes. Now you can have fuller, darker and longer lashes with Latisse. Latisse is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat inadequate eyelashes so if you have never had long lashes now you can with Latisse!

Great eyelashes don’t just happen overnight. That’s why it’s important to note that LATISSE® solution works gradually and remarkably — with full results at week 16. Once you begin, you must continue applying the topical solution each night and follow the directions for best results. If you stop using LATISSE® at any time, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.

Your Lashes will get Longer and more Lustrous 
As the treatment progresses, you’ll first begin to see changes in length. Then, gradually, you’ll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you’re satisfied with your results by week 8, don’t stop there. Stick with the treatment. After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of LATISSE® solution — and so will others. After that, you can talk ask us about the best maintenance  plan for you.

With regular applications along the lash line of the upper eyelid, Latisse gradually encourages growth of longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. Latisse isn’t meant to be applied to the lower eyelid. For full results, you must use the medication daily for at least two months. Eyelash improvements remain as long as you continue to use the medication. When you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will eventually return to their original appearance.

If you start Latisse now you can have longer more beautiful lashes in time for the holiday season! So get ready to bat those long luscious lashes with the help of Latisse. For more information give us a call at 763-494-9905.




Why Fall is the Perfect Time for Chemical Peels

October 3rd, 2016


Portrait of a beautiful girl in sunlight

The colors of fall and crisp air are upon us. You might be surprised to know that fall is the perfect time to get a chemical peel. Summer’s damaging rays have left your skin in need of repair and you’re probably noticing it. Heavy exfoliation is a very important part of skin rejuvenation. A very effective way to remove the built up dead skin cells and stimulate turnover is by getting a chemical peel. Fall weather means we all spend more time indoors and less time in the sun. This makes it the best time to get a peel because you can keep your newly revealed skin shielded from rays of the sun.

We have many different options for chemical peels at Belladerm and we love working with you to select the very best peel for you based on your skin needs. When you come in for a peel, a chemical solution is applied to the face, which removes the damaged outer layer of skin and unveils softer, smoother, more radiant skin. Most procedures take less than an hour to perform, with minimal discomfort during the treatment. Right now is the ideal time to get treatments so you can enjoy rejuvenated skin for the holidays.

So with little downtime and a more vibrant complexion as the result, what are you waiting for? Call us at 763.494.9905 to schedule your consultation or book your chemical peel.

11th Annual Open House – Celebrate With Us!

September 8th, 2016

Belladerm MedSpa, recently voted as Best Medspa 2016, third year in a row has grown significantly in the last 11 years promoting skin care and overall skin health. Robin Bernens, Managing Director and Nurse Injector of Belladerm Medspa, opened the MedSpa in November of 2005. Beginning her career as a registered nurse, she used her passion for aesthetic medicine to begin studying anti-aging techniques. As soon as her husband suggested opening a medical spa, they began planning for Belladerm. Robin built her business focusing on her clients’ needs rather than her own profits. According to Robin, building her business was quite challenging in the beginning but when she began to see the success in her clientele, it became a beautiful and rewarding process and passion. Belladerm continues to succeed because of the intention behind their products and treatments. Belladerm employees are conservative with their treatments and only choose treatments they know will provide the very best results.

Belladerm continues to differ from most other medspas with their approach to skincare and anti-aging.  Robin runs her business through honesty and integrity and will never promote a treatment or product on a client that she has not personally benefitted from herself. To this day, the biggest reward of running her business is her relationships with her clients. “At Belladerm we have some of the most phenomenal clientele. I feel very lucky to have them and they have become our family. We know each of their personalities as they do ours.”

In celebration of Belladerm Medspa’s 11 year anniversary, they will be hosting their annual open house event Tuesday, October 4th from 4-8 pm. The focus of the evening event is to promote the education of skincare products and skin treatments to keep skin looking radiant and younger longer.

So make the date, October 4th and join us for an evening beauty, great food and fun!  We would like to thank our sponsors Mark Micheal Diamonds, Good Things, Alibi Salon, Biaggi’s and Dayton Wine and Spirits for being a part of our event!   For more information on the event please call Belladerm at 763-494-9905.
