Minneapolis Facial Plastic Surgeon Introduces Bee Venom Facials to Her Practice
Edina, MN — A new rejuvenation technique known as the bee venom facial has piqued the interest of patients seeking facial treatments all across the United States. Already popular in countries such as Great Britain, New Zealand, and Australia, the bee venom facial utilizes actual venom from a bee’s sting to provide a mild inflammatory effect, ultimately resulting in smoother facial lines and wrinkles. Dr. Jess Prischmann, a fellowship-trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, has recently adopted the technique into her Minneapolis facial plastic surgery practice and says bee venom facials can be a great option for patients seeking a non-invasive, natural facial treatment.
As the only practice in Minneapolis to offer the new facial, Dr. Prischmann says she is excited to add such a unique and natural treatment to her repertoire. She feels it is a great alternative for patients who are reluctant to try more invasive treatments, such as chemical peels, BOTOX® Cosmetic, or fillers. The natural bee by-product is spread across the face as a mask eliminating any need for medicated injections. Dr. Prischmann says icons like Kate Middleton, as well as others from all over the world have had success with the organic treatment, adding that its anti-aging effects can produce more radiance and tighter, firmer skin.
Anti-aging results can often be attributed to slight facial inflammation due to the skin’s defensive reaction to the venom, says Dr. Prischmann. To avoid a severe reaction, all patients opting to receive the treatment undergo a patch test to determine if they have an allergy to bee venom. If no allergy is detected, the Minneapolis facial plastic surgeon says the facial is considered to be a safe and effective rejuvenation technique that can be repeated for optimal results. Dr. Prischmann adds that patients interested in receiving a bee venom facial or any other facial plastic surgery procedures should always consult with a fellowship-trained surgeon. She says fellowship-trained surgeons have the knowledge and expertise necessary to provide the most advanced and ethical procedures.
