Lip fillers can smooth, plump and contour, creating a picture-perfect pout instantly, making it one of the industry’s most popular treatments. Galderma is a leading manufacturer of hyaluronic acid fillers, and they’ve developed a brand new product, designed to address the two main concerns from providers and patients.
- Natural look, feel and movement. The innovation in Kysse, Galderma’s new hyaluronic acid filler is the use of the proprietary XpresHAn (aka “expression”) Technology. This new product changes the way hyaluronic acid binds inside your lips. It has the ability to bind with your own tissue, becoming one with your lips. So talking, kissing and smiling looks and feels more natural.
- Long lasting results. The second reason this new product is such a big hit is that providers are learning that less product is needed to achieve desired results, and effects are lasting significantly longer than with other facial fillers. Kysse has the potential to last nearly a year, while the standard time frame is 3-6 months.
Kysse is quickly becoming one of Amanda’s favorite products as it allows patients to keep their own natural shape and feel, while delivering the smoothing, plumping results we desire. Fewer treatments due to longer lasting product sweetens the deal. This treatment is especially ideal for those considering lip filler but fearful of looking as if they’ve had their lips “done”.

Anyone else kind of miss the days when summer was really just about getting a super savage tan to impress your friends with upon return to work/school? A good day on vacation was a day spent baking with baby oil, hair spritzed with lemon juice, lounging on a bed of tin foil? Now that we’re all grown up and acutely aware of the sun’s damaging rays, we must never ever think of sunbathing as a summer ‘activity’ again. BUT! We do NOT have to give up on getting a GOLDEN GLOW!
Aquagold® Microneedling. … Aquagold is a revolutionary microneedle device that contains 24 karat needles, each of which is smaller than a hair follicle. This device delivers products such as platelet-rich-plasma, dermal fillers, muscle relaxants, retinol, and antioxidants directly into the skin. It’s the perfect solution for painless treatment of sensitive areas including peri-oral (around the mouth), peri-orbital (around the eyes), forehead, neck, back of hands, and décolletage.
Chances are that this device will become the ‘go-to’ device for boosting collagen and administering products directly into skin due to the efficient and PAINLESS delivery process. For many of us, that’s enough said, we’re SOLD on the GOLD! However, as always, we have the photos to prove it!
You’ve seen our girl Kristi’s beautiful face highlighted here before, and she’s back to give us her daily recovery report after a recent Fibroblast Plasma Therapy treatment. Kristi elected to have multiple areas treated in a single appointment, so her recovery process was considerable. Many patients opt to treat smaller areas over several appointments for a faster and less intense healing process. Some, like Kristi, plan for significant recovery time, and tackle all areas in a single appointment. Patients can talk with Amanda, and find the treatment plan that works best for them.
Why Fibroblast Plasma Therapy? Kristi chose Fibroblast Plasma Therapy to diminish and possibly eliminate wrinkles around her eyes, and deeper furrows between brows. Amanda also treated Kristi’s lower face, jawline and neck to firm and tighten. Fibroblast Plasma Therapy reduces wrinkles and increases collagen production, making it the ideal treatment option for Kristi’s concerns.
What to expect during treatment? Kristi’s session was almost 6 hours long, and she prepared for discomfort with an OTC painkiller. Certain areas, especially the neck, are very sensitive and that’s where she experienced the most discomfort. Amanda will discuss options for pain management (patient comfort is priority for Amanda) as well as determine estimated length of treatment with each patient prior to their appointment.
Kristi took photos for us throughout her recovery. This photo was taken the evening of the appointment. Scabs had formed, swelling had already begun.
The morning after treatment, she awoke with additional swelling.
24 hours after treatment, plenty of swelling, some oozing beginning.
Day 2, she woke up with eyes swollen and increased oozing.
Day 3, swelling persisted, but didn’t increase. Face felt hot throughout the day.
Day 4, slight improvement in swelling and heat.
Day 5, after showering and gently removing loose scabbing. Definite reduction in swelling.
And finally, 2 weeks post treatment, Kristi reported 75% wrinkle reduction!
A microneedling treatment is planned to even the skin tone, and eliminate any slight redness that remains.
We appreciate Kristi documenting her daily progress and sharing it with us. She’s amazed by her results! We’ll check back in after her microneedling treatment for an update.
All around us, life as we know it, has been dismantled. As the world works to manage the Covid-19 pandemic, we wake up every day with a fresh set of worries. Our jobs, our children’s education, the mental well-being of our family and friends, and of course, the big one, physical health. The greatest challenge we face is the unknown. Hope is hard to achieve without knowledge of the future.
The thing is though, we can do it. Whatever tomorrow brings, we will handle it. We’ve already successfully managed things we’d never have thought necessary and we aren’t crumbling. In fact, we are getting smarter and stronger and more resourceful. We can do this. We ARE doing it. It’s going to be okay.
Amanda Rose Esthetics encourages you to be hopeful, and the benefits will be beautiful.
What is NAD+? Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+ for short, is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It’s function is nothing short of miraculous and is essential in fundamental biological processes, including DNA repair, cell renewal, and energy conversion. As we age, NAD+ decreases. This depletion has been associated with age-related illnesses, poor performance in all basic system functions, and increased physical aging.
The scientific research on the anti-aging benefits of NAD+ is extensive, and actually quite fascinating. As we suspect you have one or two or 74 things on your to-do list today, we’ll just summarize some key points.
Why NAD+ IV therapy? The list of reported benefits of NAD+ IV therapy is impressively long, and seems to be growing as scientists discover more about the essential role NAD+ plays in overall health and wellness. NAD+ therapy patients and professionals have indicated the following results:
- Reduces signs of aging, and slows the aging process.
- Restores appearance of skin, including wrinkle reduction.
- Improves neurological function, mental clarity.
- Boosts energy levels, reduces fatigue.
- Restores muscle function and performance.
These are just some of the physical benefits experienced with NAD+ IV therapy. Those who suffer from chronic conditions may also find relief and the lessening of symptoms with NAD+ therapy. Conditions that may benefit from the therapy include:
- Parkinson’s disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Mitochondrial dysfunction
NAD+ IV is also used as a form of addiction therapy, with promising results. Aiding in healing the brain on the cellular level, NAD+ therapy gives individuals a better chance at long term recovery. Experts have also noted the ability of NAD+ to reduce cravings and minimize withdrawal symptoms.
