With several years of knowledge and experience from Josanne Stephens, Owner and Master Injector at Spa in the City Dallas, she was able to build this company based on her integrity and the pride she feels from maintaining honest and consistent results. She stands by her word and is dedicated to keeping her clients from appearing overdone. While dermal-filler injections have grown more popular than ever, there remains a stigma regarding these procedures. With new treatments and technology coming our way daily, Spa in the City strives to consistently provide top-notch results for procedures across the board, especially dermal-fillers.
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that provide a host of potential benefits. These formulations work in the underlying dermal layers to restore support that has been lost as a result of collagen depletion. The dermal filler fills in the gaps in the skin’s structure to smooth away wrinkles and add youthful fullness to nearly any area of the face…most commonly in the lips.
Do Your Research
It is easy to assume the worst and believe you will end up looking like the next overfilled character appearing on Botched. (cue Jordan Parkes…yikes!) This is why it is so important to do your research and find the right person to meet your needs. Cosmetic Injectors should hold themselves and their practice to a higher standard and ultimately know when enough is enough. Most people believe a Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon will provide better results than a Cosmetic Injector and this could not be further from the truth. While not true for everyone, most are not performing injectables as often as an injector who solely focuses on Neurotoxins and Dermal Fillers.
We decided to do a little research of our own and discovered this article by Emily Siegel discussing her experience with “one of New York’s most famous dermatologists”…
“Before committing to injections, I did weeks of research. I wanted to know exactly who would be sticking needles in my face, craving the best possible outcome regardless of price. (Beauty > Rent!)
And so I ended up with one of New York’s most famous dermatologists, a doctor who charges thousands and boasts a months-long waiting list. They spent a mere 20 minutes with me, injecting a combination of Botox (forehead) and fillers (cheeks, under eyes) before sending me home with one ice pack and a four-figure bill.While it takes a week for the full results of treatments to reveal themselves, I immediately knew something was wrong. When I looked in the mirror, my right eyebrow drooped and gave the appearance of winking. The other side lacked an injection, forcing my skin into a new crease when raising my brows. My cheeks were uneven and sharp. I looked worse.”
So you tell us, is a Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon really necessary?
The Future of Cosmetic Injections
Many celebrities (*cough* Kylie Jenner *cough*) opt for that overfilled, over volumized appearance and natural was obviously not the look they were going for. Sure, there are plenty of horror stories of people looking plastic, stretched out and wax-like, BUT for as many bad stories out there, there are twice as many good stories! (Just ask our clients…) Don’t let those over-done faces fool you, we are fortunate to live in a time where these treatments exist! Dermal-Filler injectables continue to grow in demand and popularity for very good reasons.
When done correctly they:-Provide immediate results and satisfaction.
-Plump and hydrate the skin.
-Leave you looking completely natural and youthful! (Good injections look like NO injections.)
Despite the abundance of filler disasters, the cosmetic trend of overdone lips is already beginning to shift to more modest enhancements. Clients are beginning to understand the need for a more balanced approach, along with precision shaping, rather than blind enlargement when it comes to shaping. Shaping is the key factor, not only for lips; adjustments can be made using filler in the cheeks, chin, jawline and more. Results may appear subtle, but they are strategically placed for maximum contouring effects as a whole – which can truly make all the difference in your overall appearance.
Take the time to explore the cosmetic industry around you. There are countless anti-aging and beauty options available to you…some may even be more affordable than you think!
Big Lips Are OUT. Balance Is IN!
We at Spa in the City believe that LESS IS MORE when it comes to dermal-fillers! Don’t fall victim to the overdone “Kylie Jenner” lip trend. Big lips may have been on the rise over the last few years, but simply stated – lips that completely take over your face do not look good, they look distorted. Many injectors haven’t quite caught up to speed with the “less is more” movement, probably due to the stress and pressure of a client demanding more volume, threatening to go elsewhere, or maybe even due to the pressure of social media mass marketing over-volumized facial injections. Whatever their reasoning, Spa in the City is here to show you that natural is better and so much more beautiful! Take one look at Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook and you will see people everywhere that have fallen victim to the idea that “more is more”. One day they might look in the mirror and no longer recognize their own face.
You Have Options
The vast majority of people LOVE their results; however, there are still people who do not have that same experience. That’s where Josanne steps in! Hyaluronic Acid injectables, including Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma and Volbella, are not permanent and can absolutely be dissolved and corrected. A dissolvant called Hyaluronidase — also known as hyaluronan — is an enzyme that works by breaking down the hyaluronic acid, a sugar that is present in the connective tissues. Using Hyaluronidase, she is able to reduce those giant, shapeless lips and rebuild, while working with your own natural beauty.
