Paying for Quality

Do  you  shop  for  Botox  and  fillers  by  price?  
Don’t. All too often, we get calls asking how much our Botox is… Although we love that potential clients and current clients are inquiring about Botox, we hate that question… Here’s why:
It’s  much  more  important  to  shop  for  skills  and  expertise  versus  price.
Have  you  been  out  and  about  and  seen  women  whose  face  looks like a deformed Barbie doll?    Maybe  one  eyebrow  is  higher  than  the  other,  or  their  lips  are  so  big
that  they  look  like  someone  blew  them  up,  don’t  scare  your  kids  and  others.
When  I  see  that,  I  feel  sorry  for  them  because  obviously  they  went  to  the  wrong
person  and  the  wrong  med  spa.
So,  what  can  you  do  to  keep  that  from  happening  to  you?
Here  are  some  tips  to  ensure  you  are  in  good  hands:  
1.  Do  your  homework  –  check  out  who  is  the  best.
2.  Research  their  reputation  and  reviews.
3.  Call  them  and  reserve  a  consultation – this gives both you and the injector time to go over your expectations, goals and budget.
4.  Ask:
a.    How  long  they  have  been  performing  injections,  and  to  see  their
credentials.
b.    In  addition,  ask  to  view  before  and  after  pictures.
c.    And,  if  they  are  licensed  professionals.
5.  Do  they  offer  a  follow-­‐‑up  visit  and  provide  before  and  after  pictures  for  you?
The  whole  idea  of  getting  Botox  or  Fillers  is  to  help  you  look  fresh  and  younger-­‐‑
looking  without  appearing  as  if  you  had  any work done. Botox and fillers aren’t meant to create a new appearance, they are meant to enhance your already beautiful appearance. You  don’t  want  to  look  plastic,  fake,  and  frozen. You  don’t  want  your  practitioner  to  overdo  it.

That  is  why,  when  shopping  for  someone  to  administer  your  injections,  don’t  seek
out  the  cheapest  price.  Instead,  find  the  most  skilled  professional  with  the  best
reputation  and  skills.    After  all,  it  is  your  face  we  are  talking  about  not  how
much  you  can  save.
And  remember,  you  want  to  find  an  expert,  a  professional  who  will  give  you  a
healthy,  natural  look  that  does  not  appear  plastic and frozen.

Too Young for Botox? Think again

People may think Botox at such a young age isn’t necessary, but those people are sadly mistaken. Botox in your 20s in actually a great investment in present and future self. Studies have shown that using Botox as a preventative measure against wrinkles can help increase the longevity of youthful skin.

In 2015, more than 6.7 million Botox procedures were performed, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, about 30% of those 6.7 million are used as a preventative treatment.

As a society, we are learning that prevention is key to a happy healthy life where your body is concerned, your skin is no different. “Think of your skin as piece of paper,” says Julie Russak, M.D., a dermatologist and associate professor at Mount Sinai Hospital. “The more you crinkle that paper, the more lines will be there. The less folding and crinkling, the smoother the paper will be.” Recent research shows that over time Botox can help the body “heal” existing wrinkles,and smooth the skin, which gives a more youthful appearance.

Though research is ongoing, studies suggest even more potential benefits to going under the needle, from improving hard-to-treat depression to decreasing excessive sweating to treating movement disorders.

Some are concerned that it would be highly noticeable that you have had a procedure done, however; that is not the case. Botox is a relatively quick and painless treatment that can be done on your lunch break! No one would even know you have had this procedure done!

With all the added benefits of having a Botox procedure, your next investment in yourself should be Botox.

A new take on Energy Shots!

Vitamins are essential for healthy living, because the body doesn’t naturally produce vitamins, we must supplement or consume nutrient rich foods to survive.

Having a vitamin deficiency could be setting you back from your weight loss goals, therefore it is imperative to have these injections to help level your body’s systems.

Vitamin B12 (known as Cobalamin) is a water-soluble vitamin that helps with a multitude of normal functions of the body. B12 helps maintain the brain, nervous system, blood formation, metabolism of cells, DNA regulations and is highly involved with the metabolism of fatty and amino acids. If you suffer from, low energy, fatigue, mental fogginess, concentration difficulties, low blood pressure or muscle weakness, you could be B12 deficient.

For people struggling with weight loss, the low energy levels and fatigue can be what is preventing losing weight. The B12 injections stimulate the body to convert carbohydrates into fuel and energy at a faster rate. This enables the body to fight through the afternoon slumps, high intensity works, burn calories and melt fat to shed the pounds!

The effects of B12 should be almost immediate, unless you are B12 deficient. You’ll notice a spike in energy, without the worry of crashing or feeling on edge. The metabolizing role it plays in every cell allows it to put energy when and where it needs to go to get you through the day without feeling sluggish.

B12 helps your body extract other key nutrients from the foods we eat. If taken while maintaining a nutritious diet, your body will stop craving processed, unhealthy foods.

B12 is a complicated vitamin, its absorption and distribution process can be complex due to the digestive system. Taking B12 by injections allows for the vitamin to immediately enter the bloodstream, which allows the body to fully utilize the B12. With oral B12 supplements, most of the nutrients will be lost before your body can utilize it.

Historically, B12 was used to help cure pernicious anemia, an often deadly disease. Other than B12 deficiencies that have treatable symptoms such as fatigue, poor memory and depression, there can be other serious symptoms and illnesses such as psychosis, mania, Imersund- Grasbeck syndrome, Crohn’s or Celiac disease. However, after studies were done in the 1960’s, it was determined that B12 could help with energy, weight loss and weight control.

B12 has a very low toxicity level, because of this, side effects of B12 and large doses pose no threat or harm to the body. What can’t be used, will be expelled from the body. Side effects from B12 are extremely rare, however if anything feels “off” seek medical care.

There are different types of B12 shots depending on your needs. At Premier Med Spa, we use methylcobalamin Lipotropic injections for several reasons. Methylcobalamin B12 is a more bio-active shot than Cyanocobalamin, which means your body doesn’t have to work as hard to utilize the B12. Smokers’ bodies have a hard time converting cyanocobalamin into methylcobalamin due to the toxins in their bodies. Methylcobalamin is able to help increase the metabolism and ensure the body receives optimal nutrition to sustain and maintain normal functions. This helps the body burn up its fat stores which reduces the body’s fat circumference and lowers the pounds reflecting on the scales.
Premier Med Spa utilizes the B-Lipo shot, which has a combination of essential vitamins, amino acids and minerals to provide additional support for the liver. The natural ingredients are vitamin B12, Methionine, Inositol and Choline which promote overall wellness and aid in metabolic processes. B-Lipo shots enable clients to get the nutritional support they need to shed the pounds while supporting the normal functions of the liver.

Liquid Face Lift

Daily we get asked for anti-aging solutions, so we are proud to introduce Bellafill, the filler with long-term results. It’s permanently turning back the clock and reversing the signs of aging.

“This is the first thing I’ve gotten my hands on that actually reverses the signs of aging,” Premier Med Spa owner, Katy Armstrong said. “There are a lot of things out there that prevent or delay the signs of aging, but this actually is reversing the aging process by reformulating the production of collagen.”

Bellafill, a long-term injectable filler, has been FDA approved after a 5 year study to test the effectiveness of the product. With a high satisfaction rating, Bellafill is indicated for correcting nasolabial folds and acne scars for longer than any other dermal filler.

Using a new technology that mimics natural collagen and helps promote collagen growth, Bellafill gives you a natural looking youthfulness for longer than other fillers. Immediately after the injections, you will notice a smoother appearance of wrinkles, that will continue to improve and diminish wrinkles over time.

With the help of Bellafill, you can be happy and smiling without giving away your age. Bellafill will help fill in the smile lines, leaving you with a naturally younger looking smile.
