Like many people her age, Anna Reznick, 49, had recently begun to notice that the wrinkles on her face and hands had become more pronounced over the last 10 years. While she was not necessarily unhappy with the way she looked, she couldn’t help but think there must be something that could be done to slow down the effects of time just a little. Having sat through a consultation with a plastic surgeon the year before, she knew that a face lift was going to keep her out of work for at least several weeks. As a single mother, this was not an option.
Anna knew there had to be another way. She began asking around in her community and was thrilled when she heard about Fountain of Youth.
Always on the forefront with new technology, and with the addition of its new fractional radio frequency micro-needling system—Secret RF by Cutera, Fountain of Youth had exactly what Anna needed…a timely, much less painful solution to her problem.
By way of micro-needles, Secret RF delivers fractional radio frequency energy into varying levels of the skin, including the deep layers where treatment is most beneficial.
“Secret RF delivers energy below the surface where it’s needed most to help revitalize and regenerate the tissue. This unique delivery of energy allows us to achieve optimal results with little to no downtime on all skin types. It’s skin remodeling from the inside out,” said Sue Alderson, R.N. and owner of Fountain of Youth.
Secret RF provides tissue coagulation and hemostasis to stimulate and remodel collagen and revitalize and refresh the appearance of all skin types. A licensed esthetician will administer the treatment that takes roughly an hour and a half total to complete.
“To begin, numbing cream is applied to the treatment area. The patient will feel some heat and pressure during the treatment that most patients find tolerable. Your physician/esthetician will work with you to maximize comfort level,” said Meagan Luginski, Fountain of Youth esthetician.
After the treatment, the skin will be red and feel tight, similar to the feeling of being sunburnt. An esthetician will apply a topical directly after the treatment and the patient is asked not to touch or apply anything on their face for four hours after. The esthetician will then discuss products to use for the days to follow. And that’s it! Just what Anna needed—simple.
The treatment should be done every four to six weeks with a total of three to four easy treatments and little to no downtime. Most clients report seeing improvement after the second treatment but optimal results appear three months after the last treatment. Treatments are tailored to meet individual needs and customized to address specific skin concerns. Secret RF is safe, effective and suitable for all skin types. Results vary based on the individual. To maintain results, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12 to 18 months.
Once the process was explained to Anna during her free consultation, there was only one more thing to consider—payment. Through Fountain of Youth’s in-house financing, she was able to set up manageable payments that didn’t break her bank.
“This is exactly what I was looking for, and I could not be happier with my results. The day after I received my treatment, I could already see a difference in the way I looked and felt. My confidence is higher and I just feel happier in general. I feel like my skin is glowing—literally,” explained Anna.
The Fountain of Youth gave Anna the extra confidence she was seeking, and there is a broad range of other services that can do the same for women of every type including body sculpting, spider vein removal, waxing, tattoo removal and much more. The Fountain of Youth also offers top-of-the-line medical grade skin care products that will maintain progress and enhance results.
“At Fountain of Youth, we make your beauty and confidence our priority. Whether you are looking to reduce the look of wrinkles, eliminate fat, or just looking to exfoliate your skin, we are here to help,” said Alderson.
