The Dolls are here to share their personal journey while encouraging you to “do you” because the Dollhouse is no-judgment-zone, after all. Caitlin and Danielle have spent countless hours researching, experiencing and working with some of the best in the industry and now they’re sharing some insider knowledge from a doll-approved aesthetic nurse. Keep reading for everything you need to know about the Med Spa world.
We started frequenting the Med Spa together when we turned thirty. Going together has been so FUN and so helpful. We are each other’s best cheerleaders, and another set of eyes has been uber helpful in decision making.
In the past year we met an Aesthetic Nurse whom we can’t wait to intro you to! First and foremost – check her out on Instagram (@jenainjects) for a real life glimpse at her work. Whether you want to look “done up” or natural with a oomph – we have both been entirely comfortable under her care and ecstatic with the results.
You can find Jena at Forever Young Med Spa, a beautiful and brand new location in Lincolnwood. Keep reading for our Q&A!
1. Introduce yourself! Tell us who you are, where you work and what you specialize in.
Hi Dolls! I’m Nurse Jena. I am Aesthetic Nurse Injector who specializes in natural aesthetic enhancements to make you look and feel your best. I have an extensive background in aesthetics and have dedicated my career to learning safe and effective techniques to provide my clients with the best outcomes. I specialize in facial harmonization, dermal fillers, neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport, and PRP injections for face and hair. My specially is lip fillers. I have perfected my own technique to create natural and balanced lips that perfectly fit the individuals face. Everyone should have voluminous, hydrated, and proportional lips 👄
2. What are the most popular med spa treatments for Guys and Dolls right now?
It really depends on your personal goals! Right now winter is coming so it’s the perfect time for people to do lasers, skin resurfacing, and fat reduction procedures. The winter is a really great time to invest in your skin and any treatments that require downtime such as Kybella injections and CoolSculpting for fat reduction. One of my favorite treatments is a HydraFacial which is a medical grade facial that leaves your skin feeling smooth, hydrated, and glowing. I also love skin resurfacing lasers, they can take years off your face and help with skin texture, elasticity, fine lines, and wrinkles.
3. How far out should a client schedule services before the holiday season?
No one wants to look like they had anything done when getting together with family and loved ones. I would recommend giving yourself at least six weeks to recover post any procedure. Dermal fillers (even lips) take time to settle and for the swelling to do down. Procedures such as Botox take about two weeks to settle in and shine through. Microneedeling and PRP procedures also fall into the two-week grace period where your skin is healing and might look compromised. HydraFacial is something I recommend to everyone! It’s an instant feel-good procedure, and we go the extra mile by adding in some boosters to really leave your skin glowing!
4. What Med Spa offerings would make a good gift for the holiday season?
I really love all the procedures and skincare we offer at the spa. I personally would recommend a gift card so the individual can come in for a consultation and discuss with our trained staff what the best plan of action is for their goals. Medical grade skin care is something everyone should be on, and you can never go wrong with gifting this. It really is a game changer, and most people don’t know what they are missing until they try it. We have amazing bundles for skincare for people to try small samples of the best products before purchasing the whole routine.
Our personal, number one piece of advice when visiting the Med Spa is to find a nurse that you vibe with and truly trust. This is your face – we only want to enhance the beautiful and unique features we all have. More questions? Follow Jena on Instagram (@jenainjects) for a real life glimpse at her work.
