How to Plan Your Beauty Calendar Like a Pro!
Botox and fillers and lasers, oh my!
Nowadays, there are so many aesthetic treatments that you can use to prevent, repair, and even reverse the signs of aging. Not to mention all the ones that simply enhance or improve some of your least favorite facial features.
The reality is, a lot of these treatments provide similar results: softer lines and wrinkles, more even skin tone, and a smoother, fuller, younger-looking appearance overall. However, many of them work in different ways and, therefore, work best when done in combination.
So how do you choose? And where do you start?
USE VISIA TO ANTI-AGE WITH GRACE
At NEXT|HEALTH we recommend starting with a VISIAⓇ skin analysis to address your overall skin health, identify underlying damage, and pinpoint your exact aesthetic needs.
This cutting-edge 3D facial scanning technology provides imaging and data on all aspects of your skin health: texture, pores, superficial sun damage, deep sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and bacteria. It shows both surface and subsurface skin damage, before it is even visible to the eye.
VISIAⓇ redefines what it means to “age with grace.” It takes the guesswork out of creating a targeted skin repair and enhancement plan.
With your initial VISIAⓇ scan, one of our highly-trained aesthetic nurses can determine your NEXT|BEAUTY skin optimization and anti-aging regimen, based on your unique needs and aesthetic goals. You can use your skin analysis to target and reverse underlying skin damage before it even shows up on your face.
Once you start your NEXT|BEAUTY protocol, you can then use your follow-up VISIAⓇ scans (we recommend 2-3 per year) to track your progress with the advanced skin imaging and data.
With VISIA, you can watch yourself anti-age with grace.
Your NEXT|BEAUTY aesthetics regimen will likely include a combination of regenerative and cosmetic treatments in order to obtain maximum results. Let’s review each of the different treatments so that you know what to expect and how to schedule them in a way that ensures you get the best possible results.
Wrinkle relaxing injections, like BotoxⓇ and DysportⓇ, reduce the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. They temporarily soften the muscle movements responsible for these common signs of aging, smoothing out existing wrinkles and preventing them from developing further.
MICRONEEDLING (WITH PRP)
Microneedling uses tiny, short needles to create micro-channels in the skin. This stimulates your body’s repair and regeneration process and the production of collagen and elastin, which give the skin volume and elasticity. Microneedling can be combined with your body’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) to further enhance the results, due to the addition of PRP’s naturally-occurring repair and growth factors.
Hyaluronic acid fillers like JuvedermⓇ and RestylaneⓇ can be injected under the skin to restore or enhance volume in the face. As we get older, our bodies naturally produce less collagen and elastin, which results in visible signs of aging, like deep creases, facial hollows, and sagging skin. Volumizing fillers are a quick, non-surgical way to take years off in the way of facial aging as well as to provide cosmetic enhancements, like fuller lips, nose shaping, and more definition to jaw and cheek lines.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
This cosmetic treatment uses a laser to target and permanently destroy hair follicles, eliminating unwanted hair and the need to shave, wax, or tweeze on a regular basis.
LASER SKIN RESURFACING
Laser skin resurfacing uses advanced laser technology to repair damaged skin and reduce visible signs of aging. It works by exfoliating the outermost layers of the skin to remove damaged layers, while stimulating cellular regeneration and collagen production.
Our NEXT|BEAUTY advanced laser treatments include the MicroLaserPeelⓇ, a targeted laser peel that smooths and tightens skin and improves superficial irregularities, and the Forever Young BBL™, an innovative technology that uses broadband light therapy to rejuvenate the skin and reverse the signs of aging.
The Forever Young BBL™ is the only device that has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with aging and longevity.
YOUR BE-YOU-TY CALENDAR
To follow all treatment guidelines and ensure optimal results, it is best to plan your aesthetic calendar according to the "seasons." Of course, if your NEXT|BEAUTY regimen includes a combination of treatments, as most do, you can see how it can become confusing to track what treatments to do, when, and how often.
So we are going to take the confusion out of it.
We’ve put together a handy appointment calendar that covers all your aesthetics bases, plans around holidays, and combines treatments into a single appointment, whenever possible.
Use this Annual Be-YOU-ty Maintenance Calendar to plan and schedule your your NEXT|BEAUTY aesthetics regimen. Then use your VISIAⓇ facial scans to see how the most advanced regenerative and aesthetic technology can bring out the best version of you and help you anti-age with grace.
