Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery Koji Pads

At Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery, our team loves the way a simple non-surgical procedure can leave your skin looking nourished and you feeling restored. By sticking to a routine — like cleansing your face every morning and evening, moisturizing, applying sunscreen, and getting regular Botox and filler injections, you’re investing in yourself. At our office, one of our goals is to encourage our clients to make time for relaxation and rejuvenation. Managing work and family responsibilities requires a lot of energy, so it’s super important to make a habit of recharging your batteries and taking good care of yourself. Even small habits, like enjoying a hot bath with a good book, working out, and getting eight hours of sleep can help you feel more beautiful, confident, and vibrant.

Our Team’s Favorite Facial Treatments and Skin Care Habits

Our Aesthetic Department Advisor, Emily Moore has seen amazing results from dermal filler injections, leaving her looking and feeling energized and refreshed. She points out, “It’s amazing what a little filler can do for self for self esteem! I get to feel more like ME again.” Assistant Office Manager, Eva Lara agrees, saying, “Fillers work wonders!”

Our Office Manager, Amanda Troester has turned back the clock and improved her self-confidence through Botox injections, Forever Young BBL laser treatment, and liquid facelift, a minimally invasive way to contour your face, get beautifully pouty lips, and fill in dark circles under the eyes. Laser skin resurfacing is another treatment that will leave you feeling renewed. This rejuvenating procedure can help improve many aesthetic concerns, from lines and wrinkles around or under your eyes, forehead and mouth, to acne scars, age spots, a dull complexion, and birthmarks.

To combat signs of aging and improve her profile, our Certified Medical Assistant, Jill Robbins has received Kybella treatments as well as dermal filler injections. Jill raves, “Kybella has by far been the biggest game changer for me. The filler along my jawline and cheeks was just the icing on the cake to give me an actual jawline and only one chin again.”

Another popular treatment is PRP microneedling, a minimally invasive way to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pores, sun spots, scars, and more. The microscopic needles and platelet-rich plasma activates the body’s cellular response to produce more collagen and elastin. These vital nutrients help firm the skin and give it a youthful glow. This in-office treatment is also a great opportunity to take a break and relax during a hectic day.

Skin Care Products for Healthier Skin

Ask anyone on our team which skin care product they can’t live without, and you’re likely to hear the same answer: Koji Pads. Our Patient Care Coordinators Laura and Brittany, Nurse Practitioner Paige Hastings, Nurse Manager Penny Bowman, and Dr. Jason Wendel all prefer this rejuvenating product that does wonders for lightening and brightening your skin without hydroquinone. Jill also loves Koji Pads, along with Neocutis MicroEyes and MicroFirm, She says, “These are the 3 things that I use daily, without fail.”

To get an extra glow, Patient Care Supervisor, Kim Brown pairs Koji Pads with the HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator by SkinMedica®. She swears by these two products, saying, “They have given me the confidence to go out with no makeup, and I never thought I would ever be able to do that.” Amanda calls HA5, “A God-send as I’m getting older and experiencing dry skin on my face. It’s a hydrator that quenches my skin.” HA5 leaves skin looking smooth, healthy, and moisturized.

Another popular combination is Dr. Wendel’s Weekly and Radiance Pads. Since Emily has begun using them, she has noticed a significant reduction in blackheads and pore size, stating, “My skin ALWAYS glows!”

Other Self-Care Habits

Aside from facial treatments and a healthy skin care routine, incorporating simple self-care habits into your daily life can help you to keep a positive outlook. For example, Kim loves going on a hike, doing a face mask, and baking something yummy when she needs an emotional boost. Emily likes to begin each morning disconnected from the world by meditating, practicing yoga, or running on nature trails. Whether you love taking a warm, relaxing bath like Amanda or you’re like Eva and need to let off some steam at the gym, taking time for yourself is an important part of being your best.
