Founded by Dr. Gisele Castelluber, Inspire stresses taking time for yourself and treatments that keep you healthier in mind, body and spirit. I was lucky enough to sit down with Dr. Castelluber to pick her brain about what makes Inspire Med Spa unique:
DA: FOR THE MOTHER OF THE BRIDE THAT WANTS BOTOX, HOW MANY TREATMENTS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND TO GET A REFRESHED, SMOOTH LOOK WITHOUT APPEARING “TOO TIGHT?” WHERE IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE PLACES TO GET BOTOX ON YOUR FACE THAT WILL HAVE THE MOST IMPACT?
Dr Castelluber: For the mother-of-the-bride or mature brides, we recommend Botox and/or fillers that need to be done between 1 to 2 months in advance because of the risk of swelling and bruising that sometime occur.
We can apply botox to the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. The area where the treatment is most effective depends on where an individual has the most lines and wrinkles. Our specialists work with clients to come up with the treatment plan that is best for them. It really all depends on which muscles a client experiences the most tension in.
DA: BRIDES AND BRIDESMAIDS LOVE TO PAMPER TOGETHER! YOU OFFER SPA PARTY PACKAGES - CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THAT ASPECT OF INSPIRE AND HOW THE EXPERIENCE IS BOTH FUN AND RELAXING?
Dr Castelluber: The party brochure includes all the different services we have to offer; however, we have found that every party has different ideas about the services they would like us to offer. We like to meet with the party and ask what types of services they would prefer, including amenities like food or wine that they would like to accompany the services.
DA: BEFORE AN EVENT OR WEDDING, DO YOU MOST LIKELY RECOMMEND YOUR WAXING SERVICES OR LASER HAIR REMOVAL SERVICES? DO DIFFERENT TYPES OF SKIN LEND TO DIFFERENT REMOVAL RECOMMENDATIONS?
Dr Castelluber: Laser hair removal is really only effective when it’s done in a series of 6-8 sessions, so it really shouldn’t be done right before the wedding. The bride will not be satisfied with the results she gets from one or two sessions. Waxing doesn’t require so many sessions, but it should be done a week prior to the wedding. The method you choose should really be based on how the amount of time you’re willing to spend on removing the hair.
DA: I KNOW YOU OFFER FACIAL SOLUTIONS FOR ACNE…ACNE IS A BRIDES WORST FEAR ON THE DAY OF HER WEDDING! HOW CAN INSPIRE HELP ASSURE THAT HER DAY WILL BE BREAK-OUT FREE?
Dr Castelluber: What we can do to help is provide a series of facial treatments, offer advice on the right diet, and teach some stress relieving techniques. The combination of these three things will help combat the leading causes of acne.
