Lip Filler vs. Lip Flip: Which is Right for Me? | New Canaan, CT

February 15, 2024

It’s the month of love, and there’s no better time to achieve the lips of your dreams! As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to a loss of volume that can appear in multiple areas of the face, including the lips. Whether you’re dealing with thinning lips, lost volume or lost contours, we’re here to help! We offer two different lip-enhancing treatments: lip filler and lip flip.

Wondering which is a better fit for you? It all depends on your aesthetic goals! Let’s break down their differences:

The material

  • Lip flips are performed using small, precise amounts of Botox®, a tried-and-true injectable that’s often used to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles on various areas of the face. During a lip flip, Botox is used to relax a muscle in the upper lip, causing it to flip upward.
  • Lip fillers are one of the most popular types of dermal fillers, which are designed to add volume to the skin. They are ultra-smooth gels containing a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps skin cells retain moisture.

The results

  • Lip flips make your lips appear fuller without adding any volume, creating subtle, natural-looking results and enhancing upper lip definition.
  • Lip fillers are formulated to plump the lips and smooth out lip lines. Since fillers add volume to the lips, you can achieve more noticeable results.

The timeline

  • Lip flips can provide a subtle enhancement that lasts about three to four months, thanks to the effects of Botox. You may choose to undergo a lip flip as often as every three to four months once your previous lip flip wears off.
  • Lip fillers can provide a more dramatic augmentation that lasts up to one year, depending on the lip filler used and the individual being treated. You may choose to undergo a touch-up treatment every six to 12 months as needed. We will work with you to determine a treatment timeline that suits your needs and goals.

We can’t wait to help you determine which lip treatment best suits your unique needs and goals! Call 203.594.1890, request a consultation online or book your appointment now to get started today.

How to Embrace Self-Care This February | New Canaan, CT

February 1, 2024

With the most romantic day of the year upon us, we wanted to remind you that expressing love is not exclusive to your relationships. You can show that same care and compassion to yourself through self-discovery and self-expression — find what brings you joy and make time for it. At Intentional Self Aesthetics, we believe that true beauty is not limited to youthfulness or external appearance but encompasses confidence, self-love and acceptance.

We offer a wide range of self-care treatments to empower you to feel more confident in your skin, including:

Hydrafacial®

Treating yourself to intensely refreshed, glowing skin is a perfect way to indulge in self-care. Hydrafacials are not only relaxing and invigorating, but also effective in meeting your skin’s unique needs with personalized ingredients. In just three simple steps — cleanse, extract and hydrate — Hydrafacial can address fine lines and wrinkles, congestion and acne, pore size, elasticity, dark spots and more. Best of all, Hydrafacials offer instantly noticeable improvements to skin with no downtime or irritation. You can even attend a big event that same day with a glowing, show-stopping complexion!

Microneedling

There are so many self-care benefits to generating new collagen growth from within, including the look and feel of smoother, firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Microneedling is the ultimate collagen and confidence booster, creating thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing response and prompt tissue remodeling. We proudly use SkinPen®, the only FDA-cleared microneedling device clinically proven to be safe and effective. With a series of SkinPen treatments, you can elevate your skin health and beauty by improving the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and more.

Chemical peels

The healthier, more vibrant skin you seek is just beneath the surface, all you need to do is peel it away. Ranging in intensity to address your unique needs, chemical peels use non-invasive exfoliation to remove dull, damaged skin cells and reveal an overall smoother and brighter appearance. In the process, facial peels help reduce the appearance of acne, acne scars, fine lines and uneven skin texture and tone with minimal to no downtime. You may find a fresh, glowing face to be the confidence pick-me-up you need to shine brightly at every stage of life!

It’s time to discover new ways to embrace self-care in your life! Call 203.594.1890, request a consultation online or book your appointment now to get started today.

Reach Your Body Goals with Semaglutide and EMSCULPT NEO® | New Canaan, CT

January 15, 2023

What if we told you there was a way you could lose weight, burn fat and build muscle with just two treatments? The ultimate combination for weight loss and body sculpting is here at Intentional Self Aesthetics with semaglutide and EMSCULPT NEO®! This dynamic treatment duo not only has the power to elevate your confidence and physical appearance but can also improve your health and well-being.

Let’s look at each treatment’s benefits and explore how they can work synergistically to take your body goals to the next level:

Semaglutide: Medically supervised weight loss

Within our medically supervised weight loss program, we offer semaglutide injections to help curb hunger and reduce caloric intake. Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. As a prescription medication for chronic weight management, semaglutide helps diminish food cravings and promote a sense of fullness in adults who are considered above a healthy body mass index (BMI) and/or have a weight-related health condition such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol. In tandem with a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise, it’s important to stay committed and consistent with your series of self-administered semaglutide injections. If you meet the health requirements for treatment, semaglutide can offer significant long-term weight loss results. However, semaglutide does not have the same effect on targeted fat loss and muscle building.

EMSCULPT NEO: Fat reduction and muscle building

Here’s where EMSCULPT NEO body sculpting comes in. This revolutionary treatment is FDA-cleared to build muscle and burn fat simultaneously without downtime or invasive measures. What sets EMSCULPT NEO apart is its unique combination of radiofrequency (RF) and high intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®), designed to permanently damage fat cells and contract muscle fibers at high intensities, respectively. In just four convenient, 30-minute treatments, you can experience an average 25% muscle mass increase and an average 30% fat reduction. Plus, since EMSCULPT NEO can treat a BMI of up to 35, a broad range of body types can benefit.

Semaglutide + EMSCULPT NEO: Synergistic results

While both treatments are highly transformative on their own, together they steal the show, providing total body and wellness benefits. EMSCULPT NEO targets specific areas of the body, building muscle mass and reducing fat, while semaglutide provides overall weight loss. This duo also encourages a long-term commitment to physical activity and healthy eating. With EMSCULPT NEO, as your strength and stamina increase from each treatment session, you may find it easier to follow a fitness lifestyle. On the other hand, in addition to curbing hunger, semaglutide can decrease cravings for unhealthy food options. These consistent dietary choices can influence sustainable eating patterns. Together, EMSCULPT NEO and semaglutide offer a path for healthy weight management and total body confidence like we haven’t seen before.

We can’t wait to help you on your journey toward a happier, healthier you! To learn whether a combination of prescription weight loss medication and non-invasive body sculpting aligns with your individual health needs and goals, call 203.594.1890, request a consultation online or book your appointment now.

Kickstart Your New Year’s Goals with Us! | New Canaan, CT

December 15, 2023

If you already know what you’d like to achieve next year, there’s no reason to wait! Kickstart your New Year’s goals with Intentional Self Aesthetics now and keep that momentum going all throughout 2024. If you’re struggling to set goals, we recommend focusing on ways to take care of yourself. That can mean eating healthier, prioritizing your mental health, creating more room for exercise or keeping your skin healthy and glowing.

Whichever way you decide to live your life with intention, we’re here to help you see it through by:

Focusing on body confidence and healthy decision-making

Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin. If you’re not quite there yet, we’re eager to help you feel beautiful inside and out with these proven treatments:

EMSCULPT NEO®: If there’s an area of your body lacking muscle definition or holding onto stubborn fat, we can help you tone and trim your physique without you having to lift a finger. It’s called EMSCULPT NEO, the first and only non-invasive body sculpting treatment to combine simultaneous fat reduction and muscle building in one convenient treatment. After just four 30-minute sessions spaced five to 10 days apart, you can experience an average 25% muscle mass growth and 30% subcutaneous fat reduction without any downtime. The secret is in EMSCULPT NEO’s unique combination of radiofrequency (RF) and high intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®), which work simultaneously to permanently disable fat cells and contract muscle fibers.

Medically supervised weight loss: Helping you stay healthy and motivated on your weight loss journey is very important to us. Our medically supervised weight loss membership program can help you not only lose weight but also keep it off. Under the guidance of a medical professional, each personalized plan is designed to keep you disciplined and driven to achieve your goals. Your customized weight management program may include:

  • Medical assessment for weight loss, including labs (A1C, TSH, CBC, etc.)
  • Gut health evaluation (if indicated)
  • Weight loss medications, including semaglutide (GLP-1) among others (metformin, Wellbutrin, etc.)
  • Nutritional assessment and program recommendations (consultation with a nutritionist)
  • One-on-one mindset coaching (monthly or bi-weekly)
  • Bi-weekly group coaching
  • Recommendations for exercise and sleep

Elevating your skin’s health and beauty

Your skin is the largest organ in the body, making it extremely important to take care of. Whatever concerns you may have, we have the cutting-edge technologies you need to address them, including:

Halo®: You can glow like never before with the one and only Halo hybrid fractional laser. Halo combines non-ablative and ablative wavelengths of energy to target skin concerns on multiple levels and deliver remarkable improvements to sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, skin dullness and more. Plus, Halo is more comfortable and involves less downtime than traditional fractional resurfacing. All skin types can achieve renewed, healthier-looking skin with noticeable results within days and continued benefits over time. The best thing about getting your Halo treatments done now is your results can last for years!

BBL® HERO™: Renowned as the most advanced form of IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy, BBL HERO can correct the appearance of age spots, sunspots, freckles, redness and rosacea, dullness, small veins and broken capillaries and more without downtime or invasive measures. Its BroadBand Light energy combined with High Energy Rapid Output allows us to treat sun damage and signs of aging on the face and large areas of the body within mere minutes. As the BBL HERO device breaks down pigmentation in the skin, it also triggers the body’s natural healing response to stimulate new collagen and elastin. We recommend coming in for seasonal maintenance treatments to maintain your newly revitalized skin from head to toe.

We can’t wait to help you bring your goals to life! Call 203.327.5299, request a consultation online or book your appointment now to get started today.

‘Tis the Season for Luminous Skin! | New Canaan, CT

December 1, 2023

With holiday lights aglow and festive decorations shimmering, don’t you wish your skin could be just as luminous? At Intentional Self Aesthetics, it can! This holiday season, we can help you bask in brighter, more radiant skin in no time. Even if you’re in a state of last-minute prepping, these quick, no-downtime services can get you glowing on the go.

Let’s look at all the ways you can keep your skin merry and bright:

Botox® and dermal fillers

Aging on your own terms has never been easier with Botox and filler. Botox, a tried-and-true injectable neurotoxin, works to hit the pause button on aging by temporarily relaxing underlying muscle activity responsible for facial wrinkles. This allows the skin above to smooth out, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines and frown lines. With optimal treatment, results can last up to four months. Fillers, on the other hand, plump the skin with an ultra-smooth gel made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid. Whether you’re looking to smooth marionette lines, diminish nasolabial folds, smooth vertical lip lines, restore lost cheek volume, plump the lips, define the jawline or improve overall facial symmetry, we can find a long-lasting Juvéderm® filler for you.

Skin care products

Even if you’re not a skin care savant, it’s easy to feel like a pro when you’ve got the experts at Intentional Self Aesthetics by your side. We will help you choose the right clinically proven products for your skin’s exact needs, selecting from an assortment of formulations by iS Clinical® and SkinMedica®. With your perfectly curated regimen of products and our professional guidance, you can enhance your at-home routine AND your glow! Medical-grade skin care is formulated with optimal levels of active ingredients to brighten your complexion and correct your concerns while maintaining optimal skin health and beauty for the long term.

How to get holiday ready: All sound amazing? If you’re interested in a more refreshing, youthful appearance by the holidays, schedule a consultation ASAP. It may take up to two weeks to see the full effects of your Botox and filler treatments, and you’ll want some time for your skin to get familiar with your new products.

Don’t wait any longer to enjoy luminous skin! Simply call 203.327.5299, request a consultation online or book your appointment now to get started today.
