We’re not going to lie…sometimes; we’re in need of a little more than skincare to turn back the hands of time. Why yes, we’re talking about injectables. We’re not afraid to admit that once in a while a little extra help in the aging department is mandatory. And you know what? There is no shame in that! We’re going to share with you our favorite skincare clinic AND our favorite nurse! Here at Beauty Coach, we hold ourselves to the absolute highest standard of quality, and that’s why we address all of our skin care needs with all-star aesthetic nurse Jeisyl Aguinaldo at the Kate Somerville clinic!
With 20 years experience, Jeisyl worked as a traveling nurse and has over a decade of experience in Pediatric Intensive Care. Her curiosity of dermatology eventually took her to Kate Somerville where she had the incredible opportunity of being mentored by Kate herself! How awesome is that? Kate’s perfectionist style and keen sense of natural aesthetics enhanced Jeisyl’s already extensive knowledge of medicine and nursing which helped shape her to be one of Los Angeles’s most sought after aesthetic nurses.
She shared some seriously valuable information with us about the most popular and effective injectable treatments available today. The most popular injectables that she offers are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and neurotoxins, which include Botox and Dysport. These treatments last 3-4 months and work by blocking the nerves that cause muscle contraction hence softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are gel-like substances that help restore volume loss from aging, weight loss, lifestyle, and/or genetics. We love these, because they can last from 12-18 months! There are many different types of dermal fillers that can best be used in certain areas of the face and they work in different ways from plumping lips, cheek augmentation/lifting, aiding with under eye hollowness/dark circles, softening smile lines, as well as improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
Jeisyl has been a part of the Kate Somerville Clinic for well over 11 years and is not only one of their injectors, but is a certified laser nurse as well. She offers a variety of other services such as laser hair and vascular removal, Microneedling, chemical peels, Dermaplaning, Coolsculpting, and many others! We asked Jeisyl if any of the other services she offer are okay to do with injectables, and here’s what she had to say!
“Absolutely! Unfortunately, there is no magic bullet to address all aesthetic concerns. Injectables are icing on the cake! I strongly believe that combination therapy produces the best result.
An aging face, for example, exhibits a combination of skin laxity, volume loss, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and sun damage. A case like this will benefit from radiofrequency treatment to address skin laxity, Microneedling with PRP to treat enlarged pores and sun damage, dermal filler for volume loss, and neurotoxin to soften wrinkles. I’m also a big believer in incorporating great products. My holy grails are SPF and retinol (my favorite – Kate Somerville’s Retasphere), or Retin-A. As an aesthetic nurse, I feel so fortunate to work at a place that offers different treatment modalities to address different aspects of skin issues. We are also a team of estheticians and nurses that collaborate to ensure we provide you with the highest quality of service tailored to your skin care needs.”
Regrettably, not all of us have the luxury of booking an appointment at the Kate Somerville Clinic located here in the heart of Los Angeles. NO WORRIES…Jeisyl offered us some VERY important advice on what to look for when shopping around for the right doctor or nurse.
“Always do your research! When choosing an aesthetic provider, make sure to find someone with an extensive background, education, and training in the procedures they offer. It is important to find a provider whose aesthetic sense appeals to yours and is aligned with your goals. Seek out a provider you feel you can trust, will listen to your concerns and has your best interest. Friends and family who are pleased with their results are also a great source of reference. Lastly, please don’t look for bargains! Anti-aging treatments are all about safety and quality results. After all, you only have one face.”
So, what’s next for Kate Somerville? We got the scoop straight from Jeisyl and we’re so beyond excited to try their new products and services! They’re coming out with a product called the Tight’N Cryogenic Tightening Gel. It goes on cool and feels fantastic on the skin while giving you immediate results! Also on the horizon is the NovaThread; these are absorbable surgical threads that are placed under the surface of your skin to help contour and lift your face. We can’t even wait!
To book an appointment with Jeisyl, contact the Kate Somerville clinic! We know that you’ll love her as much as we do.
