Mindful Beauty: The Top 3 Things You Can Do For Yourself That Will Make A Big Impact In 2021

With 2020 behind us, these are a few things that you can be doing to jumpstart your self care journey in 2021!

1. CoolSculpting

Now is the PERFECT time to start your CoolSculpting journey. Are you close to your ideal body weight? But, you just have those few problem areas you cannot get rid of? Then you are a great candidate for CoolSculpting!

CoolSculpting is not your run of the mill body-contouring procedure. Most fat reduction procedures require lasers or surgery, which can damage the surrounding healthy tissue, causing deep bruising or bleeding. Traditional procedures you have seen in the past are great, and have amazing results, but do have drawbacks. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical technique that is used to reduce fat in areas. It uses cold temperatures to freeze stubborn fat cells. This procedure was created to address certain areas of stubborn fat not responsive to diet and exercise. 

CoolSculpting is a case by case procedure. You will see up to 20-25% fat reduction after a single treatment, but it depends on the person and the area that is being treated. We will communicate with you before treatment on if we think additional treatments are necessary to reach your desired goal. You will start to see changes as soon as 1-3 months post treatment. Final results may take up to 6 months of more!

2. Join Our Skin Club Membership For Total Skin Rejuvenation

Let’s take care of our skin in 2021! During these winter months is a great time to give your skin some extra TLC to protect and reverse any damage that has been done to the skin.

Mindful Beauty: THE “BIG FIVE OF SKIN CARE”

Ask a Provider at Ashley McFarland Aesthetics for help with any Skin Care Concerns or Starting A New Skincare Routine

Building and sticking to a new skin care routine can be intimidating.

Are you tired of trying products that don’t work, break you out, or just overflowing your product drawer? Unsure of what medical grade products are and what ingredients are best for anti-aging?

We have done our best to simplify the process for you! If you are serious about having great skin, want real results & to use ingredients that work, we have your answers!

At AMA we have simplified the perfect anti-aging Skin Routine to the “Big Five of Skin Care” that every routine needs to include for optimal skin care results!

Here’s our guide to the “Big 5 Of Skin Care” to get you started on the essentials!

1: Daily Sunscreen


 
Using a daily sunscreen is essential for your skin’s health. It is the best & easiest way to protect your skin’s appearance at any age. For our acne prone patients we recommend Elta MD (Clear). This  sunscreen helps calm and protect sensitive skin types prone to inflammation while preventing breakouts. Another favorite is Skin Medica’s Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen especially for heat induced melasma (think Hot yoga & Hotworx). Other Key benefits of Total Defense + Repair include: Protecting the skin from harmful infrared rays, Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and Improves the appearance of sun damaged skin.
 

2: Retin A/ Retinol/ Retivance

Retin A/Retinol/Retivance eliminates and reduce signs of aging, improve appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture! We recommend Obagi Tretinoin Cream, which is a prescription strength product. Tretinoin is used for treating acne and sun-damaged skin. It can also help improve the appearance of surface wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. ZO Skin Health Wrinkle & Texture Repair is another staff favorite of ours. Wrinkle + Texture Repair is a deeper penetration retinol that reactivates the process of skin renewal to restore natural hydration, visibly improving the appearance of wrinkles and refining skin texture.

3: Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV exposure. It also helps to lighten hyperpigmentation, discoloration, even out skin tone, and enhance skin radiance. Obagi Professional-C Serum is a great option as well as ZO Skin Health Vitamin C. We recommend ZO Vitmain C to our pregnant & nursing patients to give that extra pregnancy glowy skin.

4: Glycolic Acid/AHA/BHA/Exfoliant

As we mature, our cell turnover rate slows down. Which means that our body is slower to shed dead skin cells and generate new ones. When we have old skin cells still on the surface of the skin, it can begin to make the skin look dull, rough, and dry. The ZO Skin Health Enzymatic Peel is an at-home peel formulated to create a softer, brighter, skin appearance. (Use 3x a week!) Another option is Obagi Exfoderm Forte, which is a chemical exfoliant. This product reduces the visible signs of aging. Using Glycolic and lactic acids to remove dead skin to promote new cell growth, diminish hyperpigmentation, and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.

5: TNS Growth Factors/Hyaluronic Acid

Growth factor products are essential for overall skin health & to help our skin function at its greatest capacity. Growth Factors are one of the best active ingredients for total skin rejuvenation. We have 2 growth factor products that we love!

SkinMedica’s TNS Recovery Complex uses growth factors to visibly smooth, tone and firm the skin. This product rejuvenates the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhances skin’s texture and tone.

ZO Skin Health Growth Factor Serum is a lightweight gel that strengthens skin, supports skin rejuvenation and protects against future signs of aging.

Growth Factors are a MUST for all patients who are ready to take their skin to the next level!

Client Testimony

At 45, I began my journey to health…emotional, spiritual and physical. Many things needed healing and as I walked through the process, I realized this included my skin. Sadly, I had NEVER had any form of skin regimen or discovered products that I loved.

I remember hearing so many positive comments about Ashley Mcfarland Aesthetics and Ashley herself that I became curious. I ran into Ashley one day in town and thought, I am kind of nervous because I do zero for my skin, but I have to meet her and ask for an appointment so we can discuss the health of my skin. She immediately put me at ease and scheduled me an appointment as we stood there in the middle of a store!

As people say, “the rest is history!” Once I met with Ashley and her team I immediately trusted them to care for my skin. They were warm, friendly, honest, extremely educated in skincare, not product pushy, and realistic about what would work for me considering my age and lack of skincare in the past. Due to my history, Ashley started me out slowly with fabulous skincare products and amazing skincare treatments. For the first time in my life, I started a DAILY, healthy skincare routine. It has become a part of my daily self-care, I cannot start or end my day without it!.

I did a complete 180 which meant my face did a complete 180! I remember my first peel was horrible because I had neglected my skin for so long. Damaged and neglected skin came off by the layers. Today, when I do a peel there is hardly anything peeling away. It is all due to Ashley and her team. Their skincare education runs deep and I am thankful they share their knowledge and expertise with the women (and men) of Murfreesboro and me.

And my daughters!!! They, too, have set up wonderful skincare routines, thanks to AMA giving me the ability to role~model healthy habits for them. My girls feel so comfortable with Ashley and her team. They love the AMA beauties as much as I do!

Have you met Ashley? She is such an intelligent woman. She is also a brilliant business leader who cares deeply for her clients and her team. Every detail of the AMA day matters…from the spectacular customer service to the individualized treatment and the beautiful environment of her space…she pours her heart and soul into it and as a client you feel it.

So thank you to Ashley and the entire team! I always look forward to my monthly skincare treatments (I highly recommend joining their skincare club) because I know I am practicing good health and much needed self~care. I also look forward to it because I recognize that time spent with the lovely women on the AMA team in their soothing space, brings a dose of good health to my soul as well!

Mindful Beauty: CoolSculpting

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is not your run of the mill body-contouring procedure. Most fat reduction procedures require lasers or surgery, which can damage the surrounding healthy tissue, causing deep bruising or bleeding. Traditional procedures you have seen in the past are great, and have amazing results, but do have drawbacks. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical technique that is used to reduce fat in areas. It uses cold temperatures to freeze stubborn fat cells. This procedure was created to address certain areas of stubborn fat not responsive to diet and exercise. 

What Happens During My CoolSculpting Treatment?

You will first have a consult to discuss the areas you are trying to address. During the treatment the applicator will be placed on the treatment area and there will be a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your body, followed by the cooling effect. You may experience slight pulling, mild pinching, intense cold, aching, or cramping on the treatment site. The sensations will calm down as the treatment area becomes numb. After the applicator is removed the provider will briefly massage the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance fat reduction.

How Long Does A Treatment Take?

Each and every CoolSculpting treatment is different. It solely depends on which areas of the body you are wanting to treat and how many areas you plan on doing. Depending on the area, treatment can be done in as little as 35 minutes. However, if you are treating multiple areas expect to spend more time. Here at Ashley McFarland Aesthetics we make sure we are as efficient as possible with your time in our chair. 

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

CoolSculpting is a case by case procedure. You will see up to 20-25% fat reduction after a single treatment, but it depends on the person and the area that is being treated. We will communicate with you before treatment on if we think additional treatments are necessary to reach your desired goal. 

What Will I See Results?

You will start to see changes as soon as 1-3 months post treatment. Final results may take up to 6 months of more!

Is CoolSculpting For Me? 

Here at Ashley McFarland Aesthetics we take pride in giving you the best service possible. You will have a consultation before-hand to determine if you are a good candidate and can get your desired results.

Are There Any Side Effects After A Treatment?

Typical side effects range from temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity. As with any medical procedure ask us if CoolSculpting is right for you.

Mindful Beauty: Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

What are injectable dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers or facial fillers are products such as collagen and hyaluronic acid that help to rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through facial injections. With age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Exposure to sun and years of muscle movement ( squinting, chewing, smiling ) contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin requiring intervention. Facial fillers are a great way to combat the aging process in a natural way.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin. It helps keep skin plump and hydrated. HA fillers are typically soft and gel-like. The results are temporary, lasting 6 to 12 months or longer before the body gradually and naturally absorbs the particles.

Which dermal fillers do you offer?
We offer several different types of facial fillers at Ashley McFarland Aesthetics. Depending on what area you are concerned with or your desired look may be, we are able to determine which filler would be best suited for you. Currently we offer these fillers:
Juvederm® Facial Fillers: Made of a hyaluronic acid gel, Juvederm® is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that contributes to volume and hydration. Juvederm® is designed to temporarily correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® is made by Allergan, the same makers of Botox®. Juvederm offers a wider branch of fillers under their name such as Juvéderm Ultra Plus, VOLUMA, VOLBELLA, and VOLLURE
Restylane Facial Fillers:
A biodegradable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is a soft tissue dermal filler that adds volume to the skin through tiny injections; smoothing facial folds and wrinkles in areas around the mouth and eyes. Under the Retylane family there are Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne.
Sculptra Aesthetic: an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cell and tissue.

How can facial fillers help rejuvenate the face?
*By smoothing out lines around nose and mouth (marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses)
*By enhancing & restoring volume to sunken cheeks or temples
* By diminishing vertical lip lines
*By plumping & enhancing the lips
*By smoothing out chin creases
*By improving symmetry among facial features

 How long do most fillers last?
You can expect on average for most dermal fillers to last 6 months-18 months depending on the area treated and which filler was injected. 

Are different fillers designated for specific areas?
There are several fillers that are specificaly designed for certain areas of the face. Yet, there are also certain areas such as the lips where there are multiple options. Here are some examples:
*Lips: Juvederm Ultra Plus, VOLBELLA, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne*Cheeks: VOLUMA, Restylane Lyft
*Marionette Lines, Laugh Lines: VOLBELLA, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Sculptra
*Temples: Sculptra, VOLUMA
*Chin lines: Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane Lyft, VOLUMA, Sculptra
*Nasolabial Folds: Restylane, Juvederm Ultra Plus, VOLLURE
*Jawline: Juvederm Ultra Plus, VOLUMA, Restylane Defyne, VOLLURE
*Under-Eye: Restylane, VOLBELLA, VOLLURE

Would I be a good candidate for facial fillers?
The best way to determine if you could benefit from facial fillers would be with a consultation. From there, we are able to create an exact plan based around you and pinpoint which filler would be ideal for your aesthetic desires.

What is the cost associated with dermal fillers?
At Ashley McFarland Aesthetics, we charge by area rather than by filler type or by syringe. We encourage you to call the office or make a consultation to get an exact quote. 

Is the treatment painful?
We try to make your time in our treatment chair as comfortable as possible. Not only do we topically numb the area you are treating, but we also utilize a vibration device that eases discomfort during the process.

What can I expect after receiving facial injections?
Recovery time varies for each patient and for each type of filler injected. You can resume most activities right away, but we generally recommend that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising.Your initial appearance after treatment with any dermal filler may include:
*An “overfilled” appearance to treated areas
*Swelling or bruising
*Temporary numbness or redness
*Palpable lumps or hard areas at the injection sites
*Hypersensitivity Most conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and massage and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days.

Mindful Beauty: Micro-Needling

What is Micro-needling?

Microneedling is a cutting-edge anti-aging treatment that improves the appearance of many common cosmetic concerns like: fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven texture, and dull skin tone. During your treatment, one of our medical professional providers will use a handheld device called a SkinPen, gliding it across the surface of the designated treatment area. The tip of this device has 12 microneedles that create a series of micro-injuries to the surface of the skin creating open “micro-channels” in the skin. This stimulates a natural healing process generating an increase in collagen. This treatment improves skin quality at the cellular level, leaving you with supple, youthful looking skin.

What is PRP?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP, aka the body’s “liquid gold”, contains healing properties and has many natural and long-term benefits when used medically as well as cosmetically. PRP is highly concentrated growth factors to help tissue heal and repair, which can help solve a variety of skin related issues. These platelets contain bioactive proteins and growth factors that serve to accelerate tissue repair and regeneration to activate stem cells. This age-defying wrinkle treatment stimulates collagen production and cell turnover, resulting in fresh, healthy, younger looking skin. Research studies on PRP has shown improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, hair loss, texture, and scarring when topically placed and/or injected underneath the skin.

Where do you use PRP?

PRP is most commonly microneedled into the skin, injected or both! Depending on the patient’s goals and needs, our providers will identify which process of PRP microneedling and injection will best meet the goals. Injecting PRP can address volume loss, acne pitting, laugh lines, and under-eyes (darkness and circles).

Whichever treatment process is right for you, the goal of using PRP is to cause a natural reparative process, sending signals to your body to produce more collagen and improve skin quality.

PRP with microneedling + injections

For even more collagen boosting (brightening under eyes or targeting those deep smile lines), you can add PRP injections to your treatment. Prior to micro-needling, we will inject some of your PRP to areas of concern. We can inject the PRP in any area of the face that you’d like to tell the body to boost collagen. The most common areas include under eyes, smile lines, and scars anywhere on the body. We also see great results with PRP hair restoration for thinning hair.

What are the results of PRP?

After having a PRP microneedling treatment done, your collagen production will be a continuous process up to a year after your initial treatment. PRP will leave you with ultra-soft skin, reduction in darkness under eyes and soften any scarring you may have. You’ll be left with the healthy, glowing skin you’ve always wanted that not even makeup can give you.

Who is a good candidate for PRP?

Microneedling, PRP, and PRP injections are excellent treatments for the vast majority of people. From acne to anti-aging, incorporating microneedling and PRP with any skin treatment regimen will yield gradual, natural results. We always recommend that our patients and future patients schedule a consultation regarding microneedling and PRP. No patient is the same and all have different skin concerns. Making a consultation gives our providers a good idea of how to customize the patient’s needs. This allows our providers to pin-point some root causes and establish a treatment plan going forward that is best suited for the patient to yield the best possible results.

PRP Hair Restoration!

If you’ve been noticing worsening hair quality, decreasing hair volume, or other symptoms related to hair loss, PRP hair restoration might be a viable treatment option for you. PRP hair restoration uses plasma which is isolated from your blood. This plasma has a high level of platelets, and this serum is injected back into your scalp. The scalp is numbed with lidocaine and then injected while simultaneously using a scalp stimulator to confuse pain signals to further minimize discomfort. Although it is effective and safe, we always recommend that you schedule a consultation and evaluation to determine whether or not this procedure is appropriate for your hair loss problems.
