1. What makes Spa Jouvence a Medspa?
We are Physician owned and offer Physician services that surpass the results of a day spa, by providing medical attention, with Dr. Edmond Wood. All of our suggested treatments are designed to improve the condition of your skin, either through in-office procedures or at home skincare. We design each patients treatment plan, based on their individual needs, not a set routine. Medspa services include: Neuromodulators i.e Botox, Fillers i.e Juvederm, Laser Resurfacing, Vampire Facelift, Micro needling, Hydrafacial MD, Chemical peels, Hormone therapy, Sclerotherapy for spider veins and Weight loss programs.
2. What are some of the most common concerns people come to you with?
The most common concern our clientele comes to us with is age related issues: looking tired, sagging skin, and concerns about pigment uniformity or fine lines and wrinkles. Our patients love that we have different options to choose from to assist them in achieving their goals. The next most common concern is a need for relaxation. We have a beautiful treatment room filled with soothing sounds and relaxing aromas filling the air where our therapists melt your stress away.
Is there a particular treatment you recommend for anti aging? It would depend on the patients concerns, but for wrinkles, combining spa services, like chemical peels, with Dr.Woods’ procedures Botox and/or Fillers. We offer a CO2 Fractional laser, for skin resurfacing, which has been the gold standard in facial rejuvenation for many years.
3. What is the best way to get rid of hyperpigmentation?
There are several ways to address hyperpigmentation. We like to address it from several angles. First, we put our patients on a 4% hydroquinone, which is a tyrosinase inhibitor, its job is to go into the cells and regulate the melanin production to even out the skin tone. Second, we recommend in-office treatments from light to dermal chemical peels, and laser therapy. Finally, always remember sunblock is the best prevention tool we have. Everyone, everyday should be wearing sunscreen. We do carry a line of skin lightening agents without hydroquinone, if that is a preference
4. What is a Vampire Facelift?
The Vampire Facelift offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue. Vampire Facelift helps with volume loss in aging skin, and re-establishes collagen depletion.This is done by a 3 step process.
1. The physician uses Hyaluronic acid fillers to create a beautiful shape.
2. Next, Dr. Wood isolates growth factors from the patients own blood, onsite using a centrifuge.
3. After the growth factors enter the face ( via injection ) the stem cells activate new tissue growth ( new collagen, and new blood vessels for smoothness and a healthy glow) If you prefer no filler, you can choose the vampire facial, which also uses patients blood, but thru the micro needling process, the growth factors are absorbed into the skin.
5. What is microneedling? Who is a good candidate?
Needling is a minimally invasive, in office, skin rejuvenation treatment that improves fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, texture concerns,hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and other conditions. By stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Your skin will look and feel healthier with little or no downtime! Needling is done in a series of 4-6 treatments for optimal results.
6. What is a Hydrafacial?
This treatment is a patient favorite! It merges soothing and invigorating spa therapies with advanced medical technology to achieve instant lasting results. Combining a wet microderm with a light chemical peel and extractions finishing with an infusion of vitamins and hyaluronic acid. Your skin instantly feels fresh and alive, leaving a beautiful glow that lasts days.
7. How do you determine the best treatment? Botox or Filler? What is the difference?
These are two vastly different procedures. Filler i.e Juvederm, reestablishes volume or correction of asymmetry to face or soft tissue defects to body, particularly face. Neruomodulators, i.e Botox, is used to smooth out wrinkles and unwanted muscular prominences in face and neck. Dr. Wood accomplishes this by injecting precise amounts to specific targeted muscles to smooth out wrinkles created by the muscle, or to correct facial asymmetries. Dr. Wood utilizes modulators to lift the neck, known as “Nefertiti”neck lift. He can also correct vertical muscular bands that develop in neck, known as “Paltysmal bands”
Dr. Wood can determine which is best and what amount is needed to achieve the desired look. Both Botox and Fillers treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Botox temporarily reduces the activity of muscles, whereas, facial fillers temporarily smooth moderate to severe wrinkles. We offer free consultations prior to all procedures
8. What does the future hold for your business?
We are very excited to say, our future is now!! We are relocating to a larger facility, staying on Metairie Road ( above Glenn Michael Salon ). We will have much better visibility and plenty of parking. We are so grateful to our loving patients who have supported us, given referrals and helped us grow. To achieve completion of our vision, We will be using this opportunity to rebrand from the place you CAN’T find with the name you CAN’T pronounce, to the place you CAN find and the name you CAN pronounce To reflect our expanded capabilities and services, we feel a name change will highlight our achievements and vision of enhanced capabilities.
We will have exciting new services to offer ( Laser hair removal, digital skin analysis, airbrush tanning) and Dr. Wood will be launching his own medical grade skincare line!
