Yes, all first-time appointments require a consultation prior to booking your treatment. The only exceptions are DiamondGlow and NuEra. This allows our MediZen team to meet with you and develop a personalized treatment plan.
When you book your appointment, you are holding a space on our calendar that is no longer available to our other clients. In order to be respectful of your fellow patients, please call our concierge at 614-266-9922 as soon as you know you will not be able to make your appointment.
If cancellation is necessary, we require that you call at least 24 hrs in advance. Appointments are in high demand, and your advanced notice will allow another client access to that appointment time. While consultations are free, you may be charged a $99 cancellation/no-show fee if you provide less than 24 hours notice that you are unable to attend your appointment. We value your time and we ask that you value ours in return.
Here at MediZen, we do things a little bit differently. We take your journey with us seriously, and in order to provide you with the best possible outcomes, we believe in the power of a consultation. During these consultations, our world-renowned experts will have the opportunity to evaluate your unique anatomy, listen to your specific desires and review a treatment plan that will help you achieve the best version of yourself.
MediZen does not offer plastic surgery, but offers other great fat reduction options.
MediZen offers both group bookings and special events upon request. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about Group Parties.
The consultation is meant to provide you and your MediZen team with ample time to review your aesthetics/wellness goals and develop a treatment plan specifically addressing those goals. Should there be availability immediately following the consultation, you are more than welcomed to begin your treatment that same day.
Injectable fillers work by placing the hyaluronic acid underneath the skin strategically to help optimize results by adding support and volume in areas of volume depletion due to the aging process.
We attempt to make filler as painless as possible by utilizing multiple techniques (i.e., numbing cream and injectable numbing), when necessary. Our goal is to always have a painless procedure.
Filler metabolism differs from individual to individual. Fillers usually will last between 6-12 months depending on which area filler is placed.
You will see the results of your filler immediately. It takes about two weeks to fully heal from injections, and therefore your results will be optimal by this time.
In preparation for your filler treatment, attempt to avoid alcohol and NSAIDs (i.e., ibuprofen, etc.) as these may increase bruising.
Avoid exercise within 24 hours of being treated with filler, kissing (after lip filler), as well as massaging of the filler.
Depending on the product, results of your Botox treatment may take anywhere from 3 to 7 days to kick in. All wrinkle relaxers should be in full effect by two weeks.
After your Botox treatment, we suggest that you avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours. Additionally, we suggest avoiding laying down or wearing a headband for 2 to 4 hours, and massaging the area injected.
There is no downtime for wrinkle relaxer treatments.
The forehead, frown lines and crows feet are the most commonly treated areas for wrinkle relaxers. Other areas may be treated as well, such as the chin, “gummy smile” and upper lip to reveal more of the top lip when smiling.
We suggest that you avoid consuming alcohol and NSAIDs (i.e., ibuprofen, etc.) prior to your Botox treatment, as these may increase your risk of bruising.
The results of Botox last 90 days.
Botox treatments are incredibly quick and mostly painless.
Kybella is an injectable that results in permanent fat removal!
During your Kybella treatment one of our trained injectors will utilize a needle and syringe to strategically place the fat removing enzyme into your subcutaneous fat tissue.
You may experience slight discomfort immediately after your Kybella treatment that subsides within about 5 minutes. You may be tender and swollen for 1-2 weeks, but will return back to baseline shortly thereafter.
The pros of Kybella are permanent fat removal.
The con of Kybella is downtime, which can last a while and can be uncomfortable. All clients should expect swelling in the treated area, with the swelling being most dramatic in the first 3 days after the first procedure.
There are always risks with any procedure, which is why we have highly qualified staff who inject with extreme caution and confidence.
The number of Kybella treatments vary by individual and area treated. On average it takes a minimum of 2 treatments to appreciate any results. Treatments are performed 4 to 8 weeks apart.
Kybella results are permanent. The improvement in the submental area is very long lasting and re-treatment is not expected.
PDO thread lifts can be used on the cheeks, jawline, neck, and eyebrows.
The PDO thread lift procedure itself takes about 45 minutes total with numbing included.
Anyone inquiring about a PDO lift should come in for a free consultation to determine if it is the best option for you.
Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling
The downtime for RF microneedling is minimal. You may have redness for up to a week and the most intense redness will last only 24 hours. After 24 hours you will see significant improvement in the proceeding days.
Regular microneedling utilizes controlled skin injury to generate collagen and elastin production. The addition of radio frequency allows for energy to be delivered into the dermis, further encouraging collagen growth and skin tightening.
Yes, RF microneedling is safe, as our staff conducts a thorough assessment to determine if there would be any contraindications prior to treatment.
At MediZen we recommend a minimum of three treatments of RF microneedling.
RF microneedling is a combination of radio frequency alongside controlled skin injury to help bring about collagen and elastin production to help with overall skin rejuvenation.
A good candidate for RF microneedling would be anyone interested in skin rejuvenation, skin tightening or texture improvement.
Laser Rejuvenation – IPL Photofacial
The IPL Photofacial helps to even overall skin tone by reducing spots, uneven pigmentation, and reducing redness caused by rosacea. The IPL will also help to stimulate dermal collagen with additional treatments.
Clients describe the feeling of the IPL pulse as a quick and gentle elastic band snap or short pinprick.
Yes, IPL Photofacial is safe. At MediZen a certified, experienced technician will perform your IPL Photofacial therapy, resulting in a safe and effective treatment.
IPL, intense pulse light, is beams of light filtered through different wavelengths. The pulses of light target pigmentation in the skin (brown and dark spots) as well as vascular irregularities to improve your overall skin tone.
Laser Rejuvenation – Resurfx
The downtime from Resurfx varies from person to person. Redness may last up to a week. Swelling and sensitivity may last up to 5 days, depending on the severity of your treatment. Cold therapy is helpful (i.e., cold cloths, cool water to face).
- Resurfx is a quick 15–30 minute procedure.
- The Resurfx handpiece has a CoolScan scanner, which detects the temperature of the tissue to help prevent overheating and burns. It also offers continuous cooling, which makes the treatment more comfortable.
- Recovery from Resurfx is much shorter than most skin resurfacing lasers.
- Resurfx is able to treat all skin types.
- Resurfx downtime post-procedure could result in potential discomfort and itchiness during the healing process.
- We recommend a minimum of 3 treatments of Resurfx spaced apart about 6 weeks to ensure optimum results.
Resurfx is a laser facial that brings about collagen and elastin production through controlled tissue injury. The collagen and elastin production will help to smooth out skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores, improve skin laxity and also fade acne scars or stretch marks.
Body Contouring – NuEra
Although NuEra Tight is generally considered a safe procedure, it’s not the right choice for everyone. Some of the people who are not good candidates for this procedure include:
- Pregnant women.
- People with active infections.
- People who are heat-sensitive.
- Anyone with new piercings and tattoos.
- In addition, tell us before treatment if you have any metal implants, pacemakers, or injectable fillers.
- NuEra Tight is a revolutionary new way to get rid of some of your trouble spots without the pain or long recovery of plastic surgery.
Lumenis NuEra Tight treatment is often described as a hot stone massage. The heat may be more intense at the beginning of the treatment, but lightens up very quickly after only a minute or two. The recovery process is extremely short. You may experience some redness for a few hours post-procedure, that fades very quickly.
Lumenis NuEra Tight is a treatment that helps to contour the body by destroying fat cells, reducing wrinkles and cellulite through the use of radiofrequency (RF) technology. Heat is transmitted to deeper layers of the skin helping to tighten through the production of collagen.
Exosomes Hair Rejuvenation
Exosomes are extruded mRNA protein packets that provide building blocks and instructions for cellular repair.
Exosomes Hair Restoration is a regenerative therapy helps to stimulate hair follicles and trigger new hair growth.
Exosomes Hair Restoration treatment is highly effective for both men and women. You may be a candidate for Exosomes Hair Rejuvenation therapy if your hair is thinning, have progressive hair loss, are in the early stages of hair loss, are looking for a natural, non-surgical restoration to what your hair thickness once was, or have tried other hair regrowth options previously without success.
