Recently our own Dr. Clinton was able to take a few days of downtime and decided it was the perfect occasion for her four favorite skin rejuvenating procedures. Today, she shares her secrets to heading into Spring with a radiant, glowing complexion that you will be excited to show off.
“WHY, you don’t need it, you’re too young!”
This is the most common response I get when I share that I receive cosmetic treatments such as Botox and Fillers. I am a millennial and I have made it a priority to use injectables as part of my skincare treatment plan since my early 20’s. As you start to read this, you may be asking the same question, “Why?” There are a few answers to this, but the main one is aging prevention! And I am not the only one of my peers realizing the benefit of starting anti-aging treatments before lines and wrinkles develop.
I wear sun screen every day to prevent exposure to UVA (aging rays) and UVB ( burning rays). Protecting my skin in this way not only reduces my chances for skin cancer, but is also a tool I use to prevent premature aging triggered by UV exposure.
In a similar way, I use Botox to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming between my brows, across my forehead and around my eyes. Think of your skin similar to a piece of paper. As paper is folded, a crease develops and remains due to the fold. The same is true with our skin. As we frown, smile and squint, our facial muscles cause the skin to crease with these expressions. Over time, we see that the line remains, even if we are not making expressions. With Botox treatments, I can ensure that these lines will not develop in the first place.
Botox is my long term plan to prevent aging, but it is not without some immediate satisfaction too. I love that with treatment I am able to get a brow lift and injections around my eyes give me a more refreshed appearance. I notice that when I smile, my eyes stay bright, and who doesn’t love that when snapping a selfie. While Botox treatments are an investment now, I know treating lines before they occur will serve me well in the long run!

Hi my name is Steffi, and I want to share with you my journey from a satisfied patient to a soon-to-be member of the Timeless team.
In 2008, I began coming to Timeless Skin Solutions because I was having such a hard time finding a way to clear my skin of acne. I have been a patient ever since, scheduling silk peels on a regular basis and have fallen in love with Timeless, their mission and their employees. Now that I am almost graduated from college and looking for a fulfilling career path, I am more than ecstatic to work for a company that has really helped me over the past nine years.
In late 2009, I began helping out at Timeless. Dr. Clinton’s son, Owen, and I would come to the office on the weekend to count the entire product inventory. Following graduation from High School, I have been able to offer my clerical services to others in the office during school breaks. It was at that point, four years ago, I realized I could see myself contributing to Timeless on a full time basis. Now that the countdown until graduation is only 68 days, I am looking forward to starting my career at Timeless in May.
As a patient, I noticed there was something about interacting with the Timeless Patient Care Coordinators and Providers that opened my eyes to see how tight knit the team really was. It was at that point I was given my first opportunity to represent Timeless in a short advertisement video of some of the services provided. Again, the more interaction I experienced with other members of the team, the more drawn I felt to everyone at Timeless Skin Solutions.
Now more than ever, I am delighted to say how excited and privileged I am to be joining the Timeless team. While most may think it is cliché to say this is a “dream come true,” that is how I truly feel about my upcoming employment. I have been given a great opportunity to work for Dr. Clinton and become one of the vital pieces of the puzzle that helps this company provide phenomenal skin care to Central Ohio patients. I cannot wait to see what opportunities await me!

Hello my name is Dr. Mindy Jacques and I am here to take you through my personal experience with the Pearl treatment.
As a teen, I struggled with acne. This continued up into my adult life and has left me with slight scarring and large pores. I decided to have the Pearl™ treatment done to improve the overall texture of my skin as well as the crepiness under my eyes.
Pearl is an ablative, nonfractional laser which removes the top layer of skin, It leaves your skin with a smooth texture, helps with discoloration, and improves the appearance of scars, pores and fine lines.
The day of the procedure, I first had a silk peel done to exfoliate the dead skin and infuse a hydrating solution to help prepare my skin for the laser. Numbing cream was then applied and I waited an hour for this to take effect.
Since one of my main concerns was the crepiness under my eyes, small, protective goggles, similar to contacts were used so that my skin could be treated to my lash line. An IPL laser treatment, used to break down dark spots was done next to further prepare my skin. I was then ready for the Pearl!
The laser made a snapping sound which initially sounded loud and startling but very quickly became less intimidating. It also felt very warm on my skin but was easy to manage during the quick procedure. The entire treatment for my face and neck took about 30 mins. I took ibuprofen prior to the procedure, but there is also an option of taking an oral medication to ease the anxiety of treatment.
Immediately after the laser, my skin felt like I had a sunburn. It also looked very red and I could see the honeycomb pattern of the laser. A treatment cream was applied as well as cool water mist, which I was given along with a gentle cleanser to use at home. I continued to use the mist water bottle throughout the evening and kept it in my refrigerator as the cool water was very comforting. I also began doing vinegar soaks the day of the procedure to help aid the healing process. My skin did feel very warm the first 2-3 hours after the procedure but calmed down significantly after that.
I began using gentle cleanser and treatment cream. My face felt a little warm but it was not uncomfortable.
Day 7 & Beyond!
I had a silk peel one week after the procedure to help remove any leftover dead skin and add hydration. I have had several people comment on how great my skin looks since the procedure was done–most who did not have knowledge I was even doing it. I am very happy I decided to have the Pearl done.

The groundhog may have missed his shadow, but spring is just around the corner! Just as you spring clean your house, your skin could use a bit of TLC for a fresh new start as well.Timeless Physician Assistant, Allyson is here to discuss the importance of setting up a structured skincare routine.
During the month of January, I decided to take the time to sit down with many of my patients – not for procedures, but to discuss our plans and goals for the next “skin year.” During that time, we look at what we have accomplished in the past year and what things they would like to see differently or improved upon in the future. From there, I take some quiet time to map out a completely customized plan to fit each patient’s budget, goals, commitment and timeline. Some patients are prepping for a wedding and others simply want to continue to look their best and continue on the path of aging gracefully (with a little help from Timeless, of course).
After I have developed their plan, we then regroup to discuss and make any changes. We then put everything into a package and get them scheduled for the future. For many patients, we schedule out the entire year. This way we know where we are headed and what lies in front of us. We can always change appointment timing, but it takes out the guess work of “what comes next.” For other patients, we may schedule out 3-6 months if this is what works better for their lifestyle. No matter what the scenario, both the patient and I feel organized, intentional and satisfied that we have the plan in place to accomplish the goal we have identified.
Whatever the goal – Mother of the Bride, High school reunion, or just wanting to feel better when we look in the mirror – we can get there if the right plan is in place. It is just a matter of taking the time to create that plan and then putting it into action!
With the advancement of technology in skincare over the last few years, we are beginning to make great strides in the improvement of the neck and décolletage without surgery. Just as we can make the skin of the face smooth, lifted, and evenly toned, we have many solutions to do the same to other areas of the body.
Even it out
From sun exposure to aging and genetic factors, the neck area can show damage through unwanted discoloration, lines, and sagging of the skin. A study released by SkinMedica shows significant improvement in this area by using an at home regimen specifically targeted to the thick skin of the neck. The power of skin growth factors in TNS Recovery Complex® combined with the antioxidant power of Total Defense + Repair brings a comprehensive treatment with impressive results!At Timeless Skin Solutions, we can provide complementary treatments such as PhotoDynamic Therapy, Chemical Peels, SilkPeel DermalInfusion and Micro-Needling to amplify your results.
Bye Bye Turkey Neck
Additional improvement of both the neck and décolletage can occur with an Ultherapy® treatment. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to directly tighten the skin in these areas. You can combine this treatment with any of the at-home or in-office procedures to boost this to the next level of improvement.
Bust the Fat Under the Chin
Two newcomers to the fat-busting scene are CoolSculpting® and Kybella®. CoolSculpting is useful to reduce extra, large areas of pinchable fat that accumulates around the neck, while Kybella is best for smaller collections of fat. These treatments are safe for all ages and work best alone if additional aging signs aren’t of concern.Take it a step further by pairing these treatments with an at-home skincare regimen or additional in-office procedures to get rid of that extra fat and keep it off!
