Did you know that with Bellafill, the body is able to reverse backwards and re-grow lost tissue which is the actual cause of the aging face?

Although temporary fillers provide beautiful results, they are simply are not effective in the long run. The hyaluronic acid is absorbed by the body and requires repeated injections to maintain the benefit.

Bellafill is not absorbed into the body due its unique patented microspheres. The beads act as a bio-stimulant simulating your cells to make new tissue and collagen creating a longer lasting and natural method of reducing wrinkles.

Formal FDA studies have shown that Bellafill will last at least 5 years. Bellafill is extremely safe and well tested. It is the only FDA approved “permanent” filler. In essence, patients “own” their new youthful looks rather than renting them as with temporary dermal fillers. While Bellafill’s effect does not last forever due to the natural aging process, it continues to be a strong structural base to build upon.

Our Nurse, Jill has worked a lot with Bellafill and is one of the top 1%  providers in the US. She would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about this treatment. Contact Jill.

Bring a friend and join us in our clinic on Wednesday, 2/15 from 12-1pm to learn more about Bellafill. RSVP here:

Restoring Lips with New Hyaluronic Acid

A new product just came to the market for restoring the lips! It is called Juvederm Volbella XC and it is unlike any other product I have used for enhancing the lips.

 

vobella

 

Vobella contains an advanced formula of hyaluronic acid. It is a smooth gel that has been specifically made to give the lips a soft, natural, hydrated feel while smoothing the lines in the body of the lip. The fill can last up to a year and contains lidocaine as an ingredient making treatment more comfortable.

My personal experience with Vobella:

I have naturally fuller lips and did not want to add more volume to them. However, I do have etched lines in my lips that peel and crack even with numerous application of lip balms. I injected Vobella into both my upper and lower lips. I was very impressed with the outcome. My lips do not look bigger or pouty, they look smoother and restored. I was very happy to notice when I wore lip color it did not gather in my lip lines! In addition, I did not have swelling the first day as I have seen in my clients with the other lip fillers! (Please keep in mind every person’s inflammation response if different).

I am very excited about this product! It is FDA approved to last up to a year and can also be used in the lines around the lip.

If you want a subtle smoothing of lip lines and softer more hydrated lips, this is the product for you! Make an appointment to come see me and together we can take a look and see if Vobella would be a good option for you!

Slim Your Chin – Removing Extra Fat

liposculpture-collage-cleddyAccording to a survey conducted by the America Society for Dermatologic Surgery in 2014:

“68% of people say they are bothered by submental fullness “chin fat”.

 

Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, a double chin or jowls may not go away, and can make you look older and heavier than you actually are.

We have a non-surgical solution for you – LipoSculpture!

 

 

 

What is LipoSculpture?

LipoSculpture is a soy formulation of phosphatidyl choline and deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat.

When injected is causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Is LipoSculpture right for me?

LipoSculpture may be right for you if:

  • You’re bothered by fullness in your lower face and chin area
  • You prefer not to have a surgical treatment
  • You eat well and exercise, but the jowls and neck fat do not go away

How is LipoSculpture Administered?

LipoSculpture is typically a 30 minute in-office treatment. After a soothing ultrasound treatment to the area to improve the liquefaction of the fat cells, our nurse injector gives a series of injections into the fat under your chin and/or in the jowling areas. Most of our patients only need 1 treatment to achieve desired results.

Is There Downtime?

There is a significant amount of swelling that occurs the first few days after the treatment and some tenderness. Often, patients have the treatment on a Wednesday or Thursday and return to work by Monday. After the swelling subsides, the fat gradually breaks down and is excreted out of your body creating a smoother jawline, a slimmer chin and more youthful look. Patients frequently tell us that their friends and family keep asking them if they have lost weight. Patients return to our clinic 10-12 weeks later to review the slimming results.

For more information about LipoSculpture and how you can schedule your appointment, call our office at (952)922-2345 or email info@idinhealth.com.

Fountain of Youth for the Face

KSTP TV Twin Cities Live Reports

You have choices when it comes to smoothing out your skin. Twin Cities Live TV Reporter, Kelli Hanson, investigates Bellafill, a promising treatment on the market. Find out why, Innovative Directions in Health’s Injector, Jill Porter says Bellafill offers permanent results lasting over 5 years and how it provides the most natural looking results on the market for wrinkles and replacing volume.

Could Bellafill be the “fountain of youth” for the face? 

Bellafill is unique – not only does it immediately fill out your skin, but it’s specially formulated to ensure the injections don’t disappear through absorption into your body. Instead, it is a dual-acting filler and its microspheres vitalize your own skin to produce more collagen, which continue to lift up the skin to its natural height, fading lines and wrinkles and restoring skin texture. This is the key to Bellafill’s long-lasting results – new collagen that is yours to keep.

Long Safety Record

The microspheres are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), a biocompatible material that has been used in medical implants for 65 years. Bellafill has been proven safe through 5 years in the largest and longest dermal filler study ever conducted.

FDA-Approved for Acne Scars

Acne scars are very difficult to treat. Bellafill stimulates collagen at the site of scars, filling them in. Small scars can also be released using our subcision technique. This helps free the root of the scar allowing the depressed area to be released. We often recommend combining the treatment with MicroNeedling to restore the skin’s texture from the inside and out.

Finally a Beautiful Option for Difficult Areas (under the eyes and lip lines)

One of the most difficult areas to treat is under the eyes and the vertical lip lines above the mouth. With Bellafill, we are able to inject in those areas and grow your own collagen. The results are smooth and natural! The new layer of collagen not only gives you volume but improves your skin tone, firmness and texture brightening complexion.

Should I get a Bellafill skin test?

Before your first Bellafill treatment, you will receive a skin test.

 

A very small amount of Bellafill will be injected into the skin of your forearm with very minimal discomfort. This test is to confirm that you are not sensitive to lidocaine or the collagen in Bellafill. If you see any redness, swelling, hardness and or itching to the injection site, you should contact your Injector. If it is negative and you do not notice any reaction symptoms, you may receive your Bellafill treatment. Risk is less than 1% for possible reactions. This video shows how simple a Bellafill skin test injection / treatment is.

Innovative Directions in Health offers a free Bellafill skin test injection to all patients interested in receiving a Bellafill treatment. Our Injector, Jill Porter, is very experienced in injecting a wide variety of dermal fillers. She is a national Bellafill Trainer. Innovative Directions in health is a Bella Diamond Bellafill Provider which is awarded to the top 1% of Bellafill providers in the USA.

Bellafill Before & After Picture

“I don’t want anyone to know”.

 

Women often tell us this when they come in for a consultation looking for a non-surgical lift. Our goal is to provide a natural looking result, not an overdone look you see quite frequently in the tabloids or on tv. We like to call it a refresher. You still look like “you” but refreshed, confident and with something different about you that your friends and family notice but can’t quite put their finger on it – just that you look good. 

We hear this story a lot actually and it is such a compliment and testament to a job well done. We recently held a Bellafill seminar. Bellafill is the newest filler on the market that lasts 5 years and grows your own collagen. The collagen structure it lays down is uniform to your own. It naturally creates volume in your dermis and stimulates circulation which improves your skin-tone. The new collagen growing changes your skin to thinking it’s younger and improves texture, pores, fine lines and wrinkles. 

Our Injector Jill Porter, injected a model during our seminar. Guests were able to watch how easy injections were and learn how and why Jill placed the Bellafill where she did. We recommend a Bellafill Kit for those looking for a natural look that will help fight gravity and help hold the face in place as we age. Placement is key with any filler, however there are areas where your dermis thins and fat pads spread apart and migrate downwards. This is where we like to create a framework with collagen for a longer lasting youthful look.

This picture of our model was taken immediately after injecting a Bellafill kit. She looks great! Stay tuned for more pictures as her collagen starts to grow and she continues to radiate youth and natural looks. 

Request a consultation with Jill, our Bellafill Injector and Certified Bellafill Trainer.

Treat Yourself to a Worry Free Service

Susie Ries update2

I AM SO EXCITED!!

 

You may say….what what what is so exciting?? Let me tell you! One month ago I treated myself to Bellafill at Innovative Directions in Health!

That’s right! I treated MYSELF, and the whole experience was a TREAT! Here is why!

1) WORRY FREE! Jill administered the injections so beautifully. She is a true professional taking meticulous care of where the Bellafill should go, stepping back to study my face after each fill, and always being so very gentle with the tiniest needle I have ever seen. I felt like she was an artist at work! Worry free on my part!

2) IMMEDIATE RESULTS! I went to lunch with friends right after my appointment and they all mentioned how wonderful I looked! When I told them I just came from and hour of tiny injections they simply couldn’t believe it. When I told them that Bellafill keeps working for 5 years, and my own collagen will start to take over and work more on it’s own…they all wanted to call for appointments. And they did!

3) LONG LASTING RESULTS! Everyday when I look in the mirror, I am still thrilled with the results. My eyes are lifted, my skin is soft and clear, and I can’t believe it will continue to get even better.

TREAT yourself. You will be as thrilled as I am!!!

Warmly,

Susie Ries
