When you visit our website, one of the first things you'll notice is a button that says EMPOWER at the top of your screen. The idea behind the creation of The Breast Place was to help empower women who have been challenged by all aspects of life, to help boost their confidence, and to restore their sense of normalcy. Today, we are going to be talking about the importance and self restorative power of self-confidence as an adult.
Watching as your body changes over the years, seeing your body change due to cancer treatments and surgeries, and sitting in front of the mirror after a hard week can be incredibly difficult, make it hard to feel like yourself, and can be a blow to your self-confidence. It's no secret that every media outlet and our smart devices that we are glued to also add a decent amount of weight to our everyday moods, decisions, how we see ourselves, and how we feel about ourselves. As we grow older, it's hard to keep up with being your own hype woman and keeping your self-confidence up. As a woman-run and owned business, we understand that completely.
We opened this clinic as a way to empower women who have been challenged with various aspects of life and encourage them to find beauty in all things. We cherish our survivors and want them to feel loved, respected, and beautiful. We hope that by offering services like skin rejuvenation and scar revision that we can boost their confidence and restore their sense of normalcy in life. After challenging life events, we offer total wellness through skin resurfacing with the latest laser technology, dermal injections to subtly address fine lines and wrinkles, body contouring to tackle unwanted areas of fat with non-invasive treatment, and much more. These services include truSculpt iD, secret RF, excel V+, Botox, and products from Environ and Cutera to help with loose skin, stretch marks, and scars caused by acne. We are dedicated to helping you feel your best. Today, we want to talk about celebrating and nurturing your self-confidence!
What Is Wellness?
Wellness goes beyond waking up without a cold, having bad allergies, or a runny nose. Wellness goes into how your feeling mentally and emotionally, all of which can be helped by caring for yourself and taking advantage of all of our empowering services. According to the Global Institute of Wellness, it is defined as the active pursuit of activities, choices, and a lifestyle that leads to a state of holistic health. It is an active pursuit towards a healthy lifestyle and state of mind. It is also an individual pursuit. While it is important to surround yourself with supportive and loving people, you have to make these choices and accept what you need to achieve wellness on your own. Making that uphill climb will be worth the outcome. Wellness is also not a one-dimensional thing, it is a six-part dimensional way of thinking and living! It includes:
What are some of the ways you can work towards your overall wellness?
How do you nurture self-confidence?
Self-confidence is a difficult thing to maintain and have a healthy relationship with as an adult. However, it doesn't have to be something you are constantly fighting against. This is also hard for everyone, not just women. As you go through life, be gentle and kind with those you come in contact with, you don't know what they're going through. To nurture your self-confidence, you will have to put the work in yourself, and please don't rely on others to provide it for you. This is for you by you.
Being kind to yourself in the process of wellness, self-confidence, and empowerment can be the hardest battle. It's easy to make fun of and downplay the importance of each of these elements in your life, but there is nothing like permitting yourself to go after the wellness and self-confidence you deserve. We are here to help you start that journey and inspire you along the way. We believe in each of you and know that you deserve this kindness. If you have any questions about our services, empowerment, self-confidence, survivorship, or anything else, we are here for you! Dear readers, please know we are always here for you with your best interests at heart. Please stay safe, make smart decisions, and be kind to yourself in 2021!

What Is It & What We Do
Secret RF is a micro-needling device paired with fractional radiofrequency designed to stimulate and remodel collagen and address the common signs of aging. Using micro-needles that can be adjusted to penetrate at various depths, Secret RF can deliver energy at the necessary levels of the skin to promote anti-aging by addressing fine lines and wrinkles but also to correct the appearance of scars and stretchmarks. Not to be confused with at-home micro-needling rollers that only go to a depth of 0.3 mm MAXIMUM, Secret RF can penetrate up to 3.5 mm below the skin's surface with minimally invasive micro-needles to spare the epidermis and reduce downtime. One of our skilled medical providers will do a full assessment to provide an accurate treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. Actual results may take up to 3 months to be fully appreciated.
A Little More Background Information
Similar to our laser hair removal procedures (truSculpt ID) Secret RF falls into the noninvasive category of treatment that doesn't give a patient any downtime needed to recover. Non-surgical procedures in the aesthetic world have become very popular, and rightfully so. Who wants to go through a potentially dangerous and painful procedure that takes time to go through and recover from when you don't have to? When it comes to aesthetic procedures, it's hard to justify carving out time in a busy schedule to make anyone happy, especially if it isn't a pleasant experience. Thankfully that is one of the many benefits of Secret RF, it is a non-surgical aesthetic procedure with little or no pain that is followed by little to no down time.
According to Cutera, more than 70% of patients are bothered by signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Secret RF is described as a novel functional radiofrequency micro-needling system for "tissue coagulation and homeostasis designed to stimulate and remodel collagen and address signs of aging" according to Cutera. It is a great tool to also help with the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and scars left behind from acne. How does it work? Sterilized needles are used to create microscopic wounds at precise levels of the dermis while not affecting the epidermis. The heating of the dermis causes collagen production and derma thickness and causes the body to naturally heal around the microscopic wound area. According to Healthline.com, collagen is the most common protein in the body and it creates the framework of your skin and gives the skin its firmness. The production of new collagen can help smooth out unwanted wrinkles and lines in your skin.
The microneedles used in the treatment can be adjusted so it can deliver energy at different depths to the skin, so every treatment is tailored to every patient's treatment area and skin type. The microneedles used and the ability to tailor the depths they go into the skin helps keep it as noninvasive as possible, helps spare the skin, and reduces the patient's downtime after the procedure. There are two different types of needles used in a Secret RF treatment, non-insulated and semi-insulated. Having these options allows treatment on all skin types and treatment in challenging areas to be possible and successful. Patients can receive treatment on both the face and the body, and it is a treatment that you can receive all year round.
