One of my favorite med spas in NYC is Skintology. Skintology is a very beautiful and clean medical spa located on 57th and 3rd. They are an amazing med spa because their philosophy is to individually treat each patient by taking a restorative medicine approach. They are owned by Board Certified Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden.
I actually had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. Jennifer Walden herself, and it was an amazing experience!
I really care about my skin and maintaining a healthy and more natural appearance. I feel like every women should do what they want to do to make themselves feel confident and beautiful. But for me personally, I prefer to do subtle beauty treatments that enhance my natural appearance well slowing down the aging process.
Jennifer was amazing because she really respected that I wanted to take a less is more approach tfor my first time treating my smile lines. I have always had smiles lines (nasolabial folds) but I noticed that they were starting to become too pronounced because of minor volume loss. To be honest I have always been insecure about them, but I was too scared to do anything about it. There's so many cases where doctors/injectors either mess up someone's face or they inject way too much for profit. But Dr. Jennifer is not only highly skilled at what she does, she also cares about the individual goals of each of her patients over profit.
When it came to treating my smile lines she recommended Restylane Silk. Restylane Silk is made from Hyaluranic Acid. (A natural moisture- holding component of the skin.) When you use Restylane SIlk you are able to soften your smile lines while maintaining your facial expressions. Dr. Jennifer used about 1/4 of a syringe as a test to see how my face would react to it. I was told to come back in 2 weeks if it wasn't enough. I love that she tested a small amount on me first. It showed she really cared about my goals and my well being. You never know how your body will react to something, so its always good to test it out first.
I actually never came back for the rest of the syringe because I loved the subtle results! For me, it lasted about a little over a year.
I highly recommend you check out Skintology Med Spa if you live or are visiting NYC!
If Jennifer is your doctor, please tell her Lynn Anna says hi. <3
