Refreshed with Juvly

What makes you feel confident? 

 A new pair of shoes?  Wearing a bold color?  Bright lipstick?  A good hair day?  Sometimes it's the little things that can add a little pep to your step.  Sometimes maybe you need a little extra boost.  












This past Summer, I turned 40.  I don't feel "old" at all.  In fact, I'd still consider myself quite athletic, healthy, and young.  I've started to notice, however, some changes in my face.  It's honestly causing me to be a little self-conscious.  Especially since I'm in front of the camera everyday.  I'm not expecting to still look 25, just close to it!!  haha.  

I'm so excited to be teaming up with  Juvly Aesthetics to share some options in reversing the signs of aging.  What I love about Juvly is their non-surgical approach to helping you feel rejuvenated.  Whether that be a facial, microblading for your eyebrows, chemical peels, microneedling, latisse for your eyelashes, laser hair removal, or waxing - there are so many options at a variety of levels.  

The first step is a 30 minute consultation to discuss the treatment options that suit your needs/wants.  My main issues are lines around my mouth, forehead creases, lines around my eyes, and overall skin texture looking dull.  During our consultation I learned about Sculptra.  Sculptra is a new method to combat the lines around the mouth by lifting instead of filling.  This creates a more natural look. 
The plan we created to give me the best results, included SculptraBotox and Microneedling.

Sculptra is the treatment I decided to start with.  The lines around my mouth are probably what makes me feel most self-conscious.  
When I arrived, they applied numbing cream to my upper cheeks and temple area.  20 minutes later I was numb.  The process was to inject a collagen stimulator into my upper cheek area and around my temple area.  It really did not hurt.  I mostly just felt a lot of pressure ( kind of like at the dentist.).  A couple times there was a small zing but nothing painful.  Trust me - I'm really not a fan of needles so if I can handle it, it wasn't bad.  The end result makes it all worth it!
As the numbing wore off that evening, I started to feel a little sore and have jaw tightness.  Here's the kicker.  You have to massage your face 5 times a day for 5 minutes for 5 days.  That's tough to do when your face is sore.  Day 2 was the most sore and even tricky to eat as it was sore to open my mouth wide to eat.  I'm currently on day 3 and it's so much better.  It's still a little sore when I open my mouth wide but barely noticeable.  Overall, I'm hardly sore at all now.  I did bruise a little on my left cheek so that is still there.

As I mentioned, Sculptra is a method that boosts collagen creation.  That takes time.  Day 1-5 you are a little puffy, maybe bruised, and a little sore.  Weeks 1-6 you won't really see a difference yet.  Weeks 6-8 you are looking a little better and it's time for another treatment.  (Generally it takes 2-3 treatments.) By week 10 you'll love the results you're seeing!  The best part about Sculptra is that the results last 2-3 years!  I'll be sharing my results in an updated post at 10 weeks.  

I know treatments like this aren't for everyone.  But that's the great thing about Juvly.  They are a full-service medspa.  If you are just interested in a facial, you are guaranteed a high-quality facial.  

Juvly Aesthetics has 5 locations:
Downtown Columbus, OH //  Polaris, OH // Downtown Cincinnati, OH // Midtown Manhattan, New York // Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Here are a couple pictures from my first session.  Not the most glamorous, but it's real life.  





A big Thank You to Juvly Aesthetics for sponsoring this post!
