A few weeks ago my friend let me into the biggest secret that the OC crowd have been keeping from us up here in LA! Instead of taking the drive up to LA to visit, what most consider the capital of cosmetic treatments, they have instead been driving to Irvine to visit the OC’s little hidden gem, Forever ageless Inc. and the house wives of OC secret weapon, “Dr Joe”.
Dr Joe has a reputation of being personable, gentle and not overly pushy, (unlike some doctors that insist on pumping you full of botox and fillers just to make more money) and is called the ‘best Shooter in town‘ by his loyal clients. The coolest part of this “dirty little secret” is that the prices are more than half that of clinics in Los Angeles. As the hubbie was playing a gig nearby, I decided to book an appointment and got dropped off at the private clinic, a gorgeous townhouse discretely tucked away in the heart of Irvines central business district
My skin specialist, the stunning Bronwyn, sat me down in the reclining chair and after thoroughly examining my skin, to determine what treatments would suit me best, we decided on the Pellevé treatment which rebuilds the collagen in the face. As we get older the collagen in our skin stops renewing itself so quickly causing sagging and wrinkles. What Pellevé does is to heat the deep layers in your skin using advanced radio wave technology causing the collagen in the skin to contract and tighten. After the treatment the skin starts to produce new collagen thus firming and improving the skin quality. Bronwyn covered my face in gel and started to heat each area to the required temperature that causes the collagen to be damaged thus the renewal process. I was warned it might be uncomfortable as it can get quite hot, but I actually found it very relaxing, like lying on a beach in the sun. After half my face was treated I looked in the mirror to compare the two sides of my face, and I swear my skin looked plumper and tighter. It really works! no wonder both Cher and Madonna both purchased pellevé machines for their homes.
Many people do see results immediately but it takes approximately six weeks for the collagen to begin to renew itself so you see the best results in three to six months. I was recommended to do at least two more sessions four to six weeks apart to get the result I want. Some people replace having a facial, that only cleans the surface of the face (keeping you looking good for two hours), and instead have a Pellevé treatment every month. Bronwyn is passionate about treatments that really work and show definite results.
“A pellevé treatment trumps a fou fou facial any time. It makes sense considering the price of a treatment is the same as having a facial at an up market spa”, she says confidently.
Forever Ageless also does the newest techniques of fillers, botox, chemical peels and Vi peel (a moderate peel that reverses the effects of sun damage, acne etc. in about one week). They also offer nutrition and weight control, microdermabrasion, photo facial, acne and pigmentation treatments, laser skin resurfacing, body contouring, mesotherapy, and laser hair removal, all at amazing prices.
I absolutely loved my treatment and am looking forward to my next OC visit. I mean $20 in gas or $400 in prices, go figure! I’m sorry but I am blowing the lid on this place, its too good a secret to keep from us LA girls. Dr Joe, you rock!
