  • Why I choose Bellafill® to treat the scars on my face

    It seems silly that a small collection of scars could be the source of so much distress, but for me it was all I saw in photos and in the mirror for years.  When I was a child, I had the chicken pox and like most kids, I couldn’t resist the urge to pick at my skin.  Unfortunately, I had no idea that would leave me with scars on my face, the most visible part of my body.

    A little over a year ago, I started to get MicroNeedling treatments to help reduce the appearance of scarring.  Although I did see some improvement in my skin, my scars were deep and I wanted to do something more.

    I started researching other options and learned about Bellafill®.  Now, to preface, I am an all-natural kind of girl. I wear minimal makeup and when I am not working I am hiking, skiing, or running.  While I do care about my appearance, I have never considered receiving any kind of injectable treatment in the past, in part because of the negative stigma that surrounds the whole industry. I didn’t want to look like a Kardashian or look overdone.

    Bellafill® seemed different from other fillers though.  For one, Bellafill® helps to replace lost collagen by working with your body’s natural process.  This comforted me A LOT as I didn’t want to look or feel fake in the process of getting rid of my scars.  Essentially, Bellafill® is made up of collagen and PMMA microspheres. The collagen gel provides immediate volume and lift while the PMMA microspheres bind with existing collagen to form a strong base for structural support.  In simple terms, Bellafill® is like a fertilizer that promotes collagen growth and the overall health of your skin as opposed to a filler which is temporary and fills empty pockets space.

    Rather than being a temporary filler, Bellafill® has been proven effective with results lasting through 5 years, with many patients saying that the effects are permanent. The price per syringe is higher than most other fillers, but given the lasting results it is a much cheaper option for clients looking to treat acne scars or volume loss.

    On Saturday, I came to AOB Med Spa and I got my treatment.  Although I had done my own research, my provider went over the treatment with me, explaining what was going to happen and how I would feel. My provider also answered any remaining questions that I had. Numbing cream was applied to my face to reduce any potential pain or discomfort and I was given stress balls to squeeze during my treatment.  Overall I didn’t experience much pain, just a small pinch and a bit of a weird tingle.

    The treatment was quick and easy, and I was able to return to normal activities immediately after treatment.  When I got home, I immediately could tell the difference in the depth of my scars. They look shallow and are barely visible except under close inspection.  What is more amazing is that over time, my results will get better as the PMMA microspheres remain in place and create a base that provides critical structural support for my skin.

    I can’t tell you how happy I am with my results and it’s been less than 48 hours!  I highly recommend coming in for a free consultation to learn more about Bellafill®! Give us a call at 303.731.2149 today to learn more!

  • Celebrity CoolSculpting®

    If you follow celebrity news, you may have seen the recent episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians that aired May 22nd where Kris Jenner and her daughter, Kendall, were in a doctor’s office for CoolSculpting®. While it wasn’t Kendall who was being treated, it did appear that her mother/manager, Kris, was being treated along with a friend.

    KrisJenner

    But what is CoolSculpting®?

    If you are unfamiliar with CoolSculpting®, it’s an FDA-cleared procedure designed to reduce body fat by using the cold to target and kill the stubborn fat cells that cause belly fat or love handles.

    While it’s no substitute for liposuction and was never designed for major weight loss, it’s great for people who are already maintaining a steady weight but want to target the areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is appealing to many because it is non-invasive and requires no needles or downtime.

    And while, thanks to the Kardashians, CoolSculpting® is being newly discovered by many people, the treatment is far from new! Many Hollywood celebrities have undergone CoolSculpting® over the last several years including Super Model, Molly Sims. For Molly, CoolSculpting® was a solution to help her loose stubborn fat after having her baby.

    Hero2-450

    Kim Kardashian, like Molly Sims made headlines back in December when, in an attempt to lose weight after having her second baby, she visited a cosmetic surgeon.

    While Kim knew her husband would never have tolerated her undergoing liposuction, she sought CoolSculpting® as a great, non-invasive alternative.

    Anyone who knows anything about liposuction understands that it’s not a gentle procedure. During liposuction, the surgeon uses a suction tube to quite literally suck the fat out from under your skin through small incisions. Some surgeons also will insert a metal rod that delivers an ultrasound in order to break up the fat and make removal easier.

    Not only is the procedure incredibly invasive, the post-procedure pain, swelling, bruising and numbness can last for weeks.

    Liposuction is also risky. Not only because of the need for anesthesia, which always carries a risk, but also because the surgeon could potentially damage an organ. There’s also the risk of infection and bleeding. And if that isn’t enough, you have to be careful and choose your surgeon wisely since liposuction can actually make the area look worse.

    Kim and Kris aren’t the only CoolSculpting® fans either. Kloe, who has been very adamant that she hasn’t had any plastic surgery, openly admits that she has had CoolSculpting® treatments.

    That said… you don’t have to be a celebrity to benefit from CoolSculpting®! At affordable prices, CoolSculpting® is perfect for anyone looking to slim down!

    Good candidates are those who are at or close to their ideal body weight but have stubborn fat cells on the abdomen, flank (fat we commonly refer to as "love handles"), thighs or chin.

    While liposuction is a more complete fat reduction treatment that can offer immediate results, it’s also far more invasive… and not everyone wants to undergo a surgical procedure! CoolSculpting®, on the other hand, provides great results with zero downtime. And while the results aren’t immediate, this amazing treatment HAS been proven to work! If you’re interested in CoolSculpting® in Denver, contact us today at 303-305-4343 or info@aobmedspa.com.

  • A Runners Guide to Skincare

    I just ran my first marathon over the weekend and it got me thinking about skincare for athletes.  As athletes, we do so much to prepare physically and mentally for a race but are we thinking about our skin in the same way? A non-elite runner takes anywhere from 4-6 hours to complete a race and that right there is a LOT of sun exposure. Below are a few tips to help you protect your skin while running this summer. Whether you are running a marathon or going for a 30 minute jog take precaution and protect your skin!

    blog photo

    1. Know your route

    Understand that there are many factors that will put you at risk for dangerous sun exposure.  Consider elevation, time of day, and amount of shade on your route. If you are doing a training run, take these factors into consideration when planning where and when to run.  If you are running a race, research these factors ahead of the race so you can come prepared.

    Full-Marathon-Map

    2. Hydration

    We need to hydrate every day for both physical health and skincare health.  Prior to running a race it is essential to fill your body with hydrating fluids to prepare for the course ahead.

    2. Anti-Oxidant

    On the day of your run or day of the race, apply an anti-oxidant serum in the morning before your race. This will help to protect you against free-radicals.  I personally use SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF.

    3. Sunscreen

    This is essential in protecting your face and the rest of your body.  Use a physical blocker with zinc to increase protection against UVA and UVB rays. I ran with the Obagi Sun Shield on my face and I was very pleased that when I sweat it didn't run into my eyes. While no sunscreen is truly water proof, try a sunscreen like Elta MD UV Aero Broad Spectrum SPF 45 fothat is water resistant and can protect you despite sweat. This is great for use on the body.

    4. Wear a hat

    This will help to minimize the exposed skin to the suns harmful rays and can protect you on some longer runs.

    4. Reapply Sunscreen

    If you are running a race and cannot control things like time of day and shaded route, keep in mind there are opportunities to reapply sunscreen. All of the aid stations along your race route will have sunscreen available for runners.  If you are doing a longer race and will be exposed for more than two hours its a good idea to plan to stop at an aid station to re-apply. Check the race route the night before and plan out your stops accordingly.

    Or, if you are running in Colorado, stop by one of our AOB locations and we would be happy to give you a few sample sized packets you can bring along and reapply throughout the course.

    5. Seek Shade

    Post race, find some shade to stretch and re-hydrate. It is essential for you cool down and get some fluids back in your body.

    6. Cleanse & Moisturize your face

    After a run it is important to cleanse your face removing any dust or dirt you may have picked up on the run so that you don't clog your pores.  I suggest using a gentle cleanser such as m.pulse Oxygenated Cleanser. After washing your face apply a moisturizer to hydrate your skin.

    7. Treat yourself to a HydraFacial MD®

    A HydraFacial MD® is perfect for an athlete that has just finished a long race.  It will remove any skin impurities, unclog pores and hydrate your skin.  A single treatment will leave your skin nourished and restored after a run, hydrating thoroughly and giving you a radiant glow!

  • 10 things you need to know about protecting your skin this month

    Did you know that May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month? Here is what you need to know going into the summer about skin cancer and ways you can minimize the risks of sun exposure.

    1. Melanoma or skin cancer is the most common form of cancer found in the United States.

    2. It only takes as little as 15 minutes of exposure to damage your skin.

    3. You need to protect your skin even on cloudy and overcast days because UV rays are are still able to penetrate through the clouds and damage your skin. Studies show that only 20% of UV rays get blocked by clouds, letting 80% through.

    4. Any change in the color of your skin is an indication of UV ray damage.

    5. In order to best protect yourself from sun damage sunscreen should be reapplied at least every two hours.

    6. You can get a sun burn while driving your car.  You may think you are safe with a rolled up window, but UV rays will come straight through the glass and cause sun damage on your skin.

    7. There is no such thing as water proof sunscreen - only water resistant.  If you are swimming this summer, reapplying your sunscreen needs to happen frequently as no sunscreen is truly water proof.

    8. In a 2013 study, only 13% of high school girls and 7% of high school boys reported using sunscreen on a regular basis when exposed to sun.  Compare this to 73% of adult women and 67% of adult men.

    9. Individuals with light or fair skin burn more easily and need to take extra precautions against the suns harmful rays.

    10. To best protect yourself from sun damage, you should take as many precautions as possible including: wearing sunscreen, avoiding tanning beds, wearing protective clothing and hats, checking the UV index prior to sun exposure, and seeking shade when outdoors.

  • Meet Emily, AOB Client and Skin Cancer Survivor

    Sunscreen.

    That’s right. Sunscreen.  As we move into the warmer months, wearing sunscreen remains as important as ever in our daily skincare routine.  Living at high altitude means that we are so much closer to the sun and need to apply sunscreen every day.uvclearairless_hr

    In the world of skincare we talk so often about protecting our skin and how to avoid things like premature aging and permanent skin damage.  What we don’t always talk about is the big C word. We all know it’s out there. Many of us know someone who has been diagnosed. We all think, “It could never happen to me”.

    Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States.  The rate of diagnosis in Colorado is 15% higher than that of the national average, putting all of us who live here at a higher risk than our friends across the country.  It may be winter, but that does not mean that we should stop protecting our skin, especially if you are like me and enjoy being outside all summer.

    Meet Emily, one of our All Over Beautiful clients.  Emily is a beautiful, smart, fair skinned woman in her early 20’s.  As a recent graduate from Johnson and Wales University in Denver, Emily spends her time as a nanny and personal chef for a local family. Emily always wore sunscreen, never tanned – yet today she is a survivor.

    It was Emily’s dad who first noticed a mole that had started to look unnatural.  He asked her to get it checked out at the doctor and, after a few tests, they found out it was indeed cancerous.

    Through it all, she couldn’t stop asking, “Why did I get cancer?  Why me? Why am I going through this?”

    While the experience was challenging, Emily said that going through it made her more aware of what is going on with her skin and inspired her to take better care of her skin as a result.  “It was a wake up call,” she explained, “I never did anything wrong to my skin or exposed it purposefully, but I wasn’t helping it either.”

    aobmedspaPost cancer, Emily’s daily skincare routine consists of a gentle exfoliation followed by m.pulse m.mortal hyaluronic acid serum and two layers of m.press day cream to keep her face moisturized.  She then applies sunscreen before putting on makeup for the day.

    Once a month, Emily visits AOB to see Seabron, Medical Aesthetician, for a facial, which really helps with her dry skin and she laughs as she tells me that it’s really nice to relax for an hour given her busy schedule with the kids!

    Emily describes her experience with AOB as relaxing and professional.  She explained that, before seeing Seabron, she had been seeing another aesthetician and was nervous to switch providers. Seabron made her feel really comfortable by checking in with her and walking her through the treatments.

    When I asked Emily about what All Over Beautiful means to her, she said, “Inner beauty and inner happiness coming out makes you look and feel the most beautiful!” Throughout our meeting, I could see Emily’s inner beauty and happiness shine through in our conversation.  She truly is All Over Beautiful!
