Meet Judy and Sheena, a mother daughter duo from the Tampa, Florida area. The two were looking to spend some quality time together and, like many of us, they wanted to give their skin a little extra TLC in the process… just in time for Mother’s Day. A trip to Ideal Image was just the ticket, where they visited the Skin Lab and received a 3D Skin Analysis.
Getting up close and personal… with their skin
The 3D Skin Analysis was the first step in Judy and Sheena’s visit to the Ideal Image Skin Lab.
“Using the Reveal camera, we can see what’s happening under Sheena and Judy’s skin, like fine lines, dryness, sun damage and redness. Based on what we find we can create a customized treatment plan that’s most beneficial for them,” said Nikki Stewart, Ideal Image’s lead aesthetician. The 3D Skin Analysis can reveal skin issues that aren’t yet visible to the eye but will become visible at some point.
Nikki pointed out areas of dry patches on Judy’s face along with some age spots. Sheena’s skin revealed redness and underlying sun damage. Both mother and daughter were taken aback when they caught a glimpse of their fine lines and wrinkles amplified on the screen. “Mom, I think it’s time for Botox,” laughed Sheena. Botox® isn’t just for women who currently have fine lines, though. It can play an important role in prevention too!
Prevention and Correction with Botox®
Dynamic wrinkles or expression lines are caused by repetitive muscle movement over the years. They usually appear as vertical lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, and crow’s feet at the outer corner of the eyes. After a while, these lines, can start to appear on the face even when you’re not making expressions. That’s where preventative Botox® is useful!
Sheena pointed out that the vertical lines between her eyes were starting to become more evident. “These are hereditary in my family, and I want to smooth them out before they start to get worse,” she said. Thanks to preventative Botox®, we can tackle wrinkles before they become deeper.
Botox is a safe, FDA-approved product that blocks nerve signals in the muscles under the injection site. Since the nerve signals are interrupted, the muscle is temporarily relaxed and can’t move. Preventative Botox all comes down to timing. The earlier you start receiving Botox the longer you can keep deep wrinkles at bay.
Additional Correction with Fillers
As we get older, we tend to lose firmness, volume, and moisture to our skin, and fine lines become deeper. But no need to fret, Ideal Image offers an array of injectable fillers that can help change that, by filling in wrinkles and plumping up areas of the face that are losing volume. Judy was eager to see what fillers Ideal Image had to offer, for a nice skin pick-me-up!
One filler that particularly piqued Judy’s interest was Juvederm Voluma. ” I can’t wait to add some definition back in my cheeks,” said Judy.
Voluma is the first filler approved by the FDA to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area of adults over the age of 21. It is a thick, gel-like substance comprised of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic Acid helps your cells retain as much moisture as possible, so that your skin feels and appears hydrated, plump, firm and healthy.
Complexion Perfection with BroadBand Light Therapy
Fillers and Botox weren’t all that Judy and Sheena were interested in. To round out their skin transformation, Sheena and Judy plan to return for their final treatment, BroadBand Light Therapy. BBL is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses short blasts of light to even out skin tone and texture. This treatment will help tackle both mother and daughter’s individual skin concerns. With multiple treatments, BBL will reduce Judy’s brown age spots, and reduce Sheena’s sun damage and redness.
That’s not the only great thing about BBL. BBL is clinically proven to delay and diminish signs of aging. According to a Stanford Study, Forever Young BBL uses restorative technology to help rejuvenate and repair skin’s tone and texture. With regular Forever Young BBL treatments, your skin will look clearer, smoother, and much younger. Talk about a skin refresh!
Moral support can make new experiences and treatments more fun and less intimidating. Judy loved coming in with her daughter Sheena. “I’ve never considered treatments like this, until today. So, it’s nice to have the encouragement and support from my daughter. I definitely felt more at ease.”
Skincare can be a topic that brings moms and daughters together in a special way. Let’s face it, we all deserve some pampering.
