The most advanced techniques in Aesthetic Medicine
What sets Jánnha MediSpa apart from other medical spa facilities?
As a trained internist, my years of experience have enabled me to view each patient’s treatment with a broad mindset. I maintain that same philosophy when treating my patients aesthetically. I provide an extensive treatment plan, individualized to each patient, from product selection to skincare maintenance and anti-aging treatments.
At Jánnha, we use the latest techniques, such as needleless injections with a blunt microcannula, which has many advantages over a traditional needle. A blunt-tip cannula is a small tube with a blunt rounded end, specifically designed for the injection of fillers. It has ports on the side, allowing the product to be dispensed more evenly, with great precision. This leads to more natural results with less discomfort, decreased need for anesthesia, and fewer complications. The social downtime associated with the traditional technique is practically eliminated, with little to no bruising and swelling.
Are there other recent trends in addition to the microcannula technique?
Yes, I am also obtaining wonderful results with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, which is an extract of your own blood that contains three to five times more platelets, growth factors, and active proteins for tissue healing and stimulation of collagen regeneration. By injecting PRP, we effectively correct and improve acne scarring as well as treatment for hair restoration and facial rejuvenation. When PRP is placed back into the skin by injection or micro-needling, it initiates a localized stem cell response which recruits collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts over the weeks and months following treatment. Within a few weeks of treatment, an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen. Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next three to six months.
What is your care philosophy?
At Jánnha MediSpa, we have a strong commitment to delivering natural looking results, which is a key component to my comprehensive and health-oriented aesthetic medicine practice. Often, patients are looking for a refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance without looking frozen or over-plumped, without aggressive surgery, chemicals or toxins. This can be done with the right combination of proper diet and lifestyle, skincare products and carefully chosen cosmetic procedures.
I have a unique ability to combine my Internal Medicine and Aesthetic Medicine training to provide my patients with a more comprehensive treatment plan and an enhanced wellness experience.
Is there anything patients can do to optimize their MediSpa results?
Yes, in fact part of our goal is to educate patients about developing an individualized routine, including education about products and ingredients. This is key to our consultation and is imperative in maintaining healthy and vibrant skin. With the goal of having our patients understand what they can do to prevent further sun damage, we save them from intensive intervention in the future. In addition, we provide maintenance regimens with our esthetician, who specializes in HydrafacialMD, that will help hydrate, brighten and detoxify skin with no downtime. We also provide microdermabrasion and chemical peels which can correct mild to moderate skin imperfections and discoloration, refine pores, and reduce the early signs of aging caused by photodamage.
At Jánnha MediSpa, our physicians and estheticians offer powerful anti-aging treatments that are tailored to each patient’s individual skin type. Come in for a consultation along with a comprehensive treatment recommendation.
