At TLJ Aesthetics MD we know life can come at you fast. Between world news, personal struggles, and increasingly busy lives, it can be hard to catch your breath. The last thing you want is for visiting your “medspa” to feel like just another chore on your list.
As a medical aesthetics practice in Issaquah, TLJ was founded on understanding how looking good and feeling good are two sides of the same coin. Dr. Jacobson noticed over the years that when patients feel empowered in their appearance, healthier lifestyle choices follow.
On the blog this month, we wanted to spend some time reflecting on our community of patients and providers and the positive culture we strive for at TLJ.
From your first consultation and beyond, we’re here to help you on every step of your aesthetics journey. Whether you’re new to aesthetics or just wanting to try a new treatment, you can trust that you’ll have a positive experience with our team.
Trust is arguably the most important positive vibe that you should be getting from your aesthetics provider, whether you’re visiting a medical spa in Issaquah or anywhere on the Eastside.
You wouldn’t want to trust your aesthetics care to just anyone. Many cosmetic treatments are medical procedures and should be performed by medical professionals.
Dr. Jacobson, the founder of TLJ Aesthetics MD, is a board-certified medical doctor specializing in both internal medicine and aesthetic medicine. She also has utilized the expertise of physician assistants for over 20 years at TLJ.
At TLJ we have a small but mighty staff that has been working together for years. We’ve been able to create a welcoming and familial culture that spills over into our work with our patients.
We offer multiple treatment options, sometimes for the same types of concerns because every patient is unique and deserves care that is specially designed to meet their needs. When we’re developing a treatment plan, we create one that is unique to your individual goals.
It all comes back to the fact we value the relationships we are able to build with each of our patients, and that’s why the consultation process is such an important part of our practice. It’s our opportunity to get to know you as a person first and a patient second.
Communication and time spent understanding the needs of our patients has always been the cornerstone of our services at TLJ,
At TLJ it’s important to us that our patients feel educated about the options available to them. During your consultation with us we discuss your specific needs, review your medical history, and answer any questions you have about your treatment plan, including specific procedure questions.
Empowering our clients is also part of why we offer TLJ Magazine, where we write monthly articles about the treatments we offer. It’s another way that we can share more about our process at TLJ and give you the inside scoop on our methods for aesthetic care.
It’s important to us that our patients have access to resources about the treatments they’re considering.
We also offer a virtual consultation tool as a way to further support our patients on their aesthetics journey. It’s a self-guided experience that allows you to receive customized treatment recommendations before you even visit the office.
At TLJ, we’re not here to tell you what to do. It’s your body after all, we’re simply here to make sure you have the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your personal wellness.
Believe it or not, our Beauty Secrets reward program is also built with empowering our patients in mind. We know that aesthetic care is often a financial as well as a physical investment. But mostly, we just think you should be rewarded for making a commitment to your wellbeing.
With 4 different levels, our Beauty Secrets program is designed to help you feel empowered to navigate your regular treatments, knowing you’re saving money along the way!
As a medical spa in Issaquah, TLJ Aesthetics MD knows how important it is to know your neighbors and be invested in your community.
No one wants to visit a medical spa where you feel like just another patient on the assembly line. We’ve made it a point to listen to our patients and build our practice around meeting their needs and desires. Everything at TLJ has grown out of a response to a patient expressing a need we weren’t meeting yet.
Some of the things we’ve built specifically for our patients:
We created our annual fall event as a chance for our patients to gather and celebrate. It’s also a great chance to learn more about a treatment you’re thinking about trying. The event is always a casual, open house style, you’ll hear lots of stories (usually very candid!) from our patients, get useful information, enjoy friendship, conversation, food, and beverages.
There are great drawings and savings to be had, too! We usually have them for Botox, fillers, and laser treatments. Some lucky guests get their treatments live at the event as part of a demonstration.
It’s hard to underestimate the power of accountability or the support that can come from a friend. And at TLJ we understand there’s no greater honor than when you trust us enough to recommend us to your friends and family.
When you refer a friend or family member, you both have the opportunity to receive complimentary Botox or save on your aesthetic care in other ways.
Our newest event was developed specifically because our patients have requested this kind of experience! Once a month we host a happy hour event where you and your friends can come get your Botox treatments together. You bring new friends to TLJ and we do the rest!
These happy hour events are smaller, usually capped at below 20 people. This is a great opportunity for those who are looking for a calmer atmosphere that’s different from our larger events.
Learn more about this particular event by contacting the office!
You know the old saying: laughter is the best medicine. When you visit TLJ you can often hear us laughing and joking with our patients and staff. It’s because we know that joy is such an important part of life!
What are we doing all this for if it’s not leading to happier patients living more fulfilled lives? We’re not interested in shaming people into getting aesthetic care, every treatment plan is patient led and supported by our expertise.
Early on in her practice, Dr. Jacobson saw the clear connection between looking good and feeling good. That’s why dermatologic care and aesthetics became a prominent part of her practice. When patients were supported in making efforts to improve their appearance, healthier lifestyle choices tended to follow in other areas. That’s why TLJ is not just a medical spa in Issaquah, we also offer primary care services for many of our patients.
Aesthetic care is about enhancing your natural beauty, not turning you into a makeover project. And at TLJ, we firmly believe you should be having fun along the way!
We know that it would be impossible for us to do the work we get to without the support of our wonderful patients. It’s humbling to get to make a difference in your lives and you should know that you make a difference in our lives at TLJ, too.
Every day we come to work grateful to continue building relationships with our patients. Every consultation, every treatment, every follow up appointment—we never want to take those opportunities for granted.
Our team at TLJ prides ourselves on providing excellent patient care and the highest quality aesthetic technology in the region. Whether you’re new to aesthetics, or just looking for a new provider, we welcome people of all ages to discover the TLJ difference.
We aim to be more than just another medical spa in Issaquah. We’re a professional medical practice dedicated to providing our community with the expertise they need to look and feel like the best version of themselves.
Take the next step in your aesthetics journey and schedule your consultation with us.
