Why spend another holiday season hiding your sweaty pits or extra hair in awkward places. Don’t let concerns like thinning hair, wrinkles and scars keep you from enjoying the annual holiday parties with your friends and family. These four med spa treatments can help you put your best foot forward and have everyone turning heads this holiday season.
1. BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX Cosmetic is a versatile treatment option that can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscle activity responsible for those creases. Simple injections offer a youthful appearance without the downtime of surgical procedures.
While BOTOX is known for its cosmetic benefits, it offers so much more and is now FDA approved for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating under the armpits. No more worries about sweat stains on your favorite shirt or dress. A 30-minute treatment involves targeted injections that block the nerve signals responsible for the excessive sweating.
2. Diolaze XL Laser Hair Removal
Do you have body hair in places where you would prefer it not to be? Tired of shaving or plucking and want to find a more permanent solution? Diolaze XL laser hair removal may be just the solution you have been looking for. The laser energy can safely target unwanted hair on most areas of the body including the face, bikini line, legs, arms and chest. Most men and women need a few sessions in order to achieve optimal results. How many sessions will depend on your hair color, hair type, body area and your skin tone.
3. PRP Hair Therapy
When your hair starts to thin or you experience balding areas, it can reduce your self-esteem and make you self-conscious, keeping you from enjoying the holiday parties. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair therapy uses the platelet-rich plasma from your own blood to nourish your hair follicles to help stimulate new hair growth.
4. Fractora Skin Resurfacing and Scar Treatment
Fractora skin resurfacing and scar treatment is a great treatment option when you have multiple skin concerns to address. This non-surgical procedure uses to bipolar radiofrequency to treat the appearance of wrinkles, skin tone and acne scars.
The holidays should be a time to enjoy yourself with family and friends. These med spa treatment options can have you feeling confident and ready to take on the holiday season.
Everyone wants to look their best when it comes to a big event or special day, and med spa treatments are a popular way to help you look your best in less time. Treatments such as body contouring and laser skin treatments are excellent options to help you improve your appearance, but timing these treatments right is essential.
No one wants to show up for their special day all swollen and puffy! The right timing of each treatment ensures that you achieve the best results just in time for your special day.
Six or More Months in Advance
If you have at least six months before your special day, you have many med spa treatment options available. While some of these treatments provide immediate results, many require multiple treatments in order to achieve your desired goal. If you are considering any of these treatment options, plan to schedule your first appointment at least six months before your big event.
- Body Contouring/Cellulite Reduction with VelaShape — This procedure can help reduce the volume in the upper arms, love handles, abdomen and other areas. While results can vary, it’s possible to reduce the circumference of the targeted area by as much as 3 inches. While you may notice results after the first treatment, 6 treatments are usually recommended for optimal results.
- Laser Treatments — Laser treatments, such as CO2 fractional laser resurfacing, can diminish wrinkles, pores, acne, scars and skin discoloration through a series of minimally invasive treatments. This can require multiple treatments to achieve your desired results. Just make sure your last treatment is a month before your big day.
- Laser Hair Removal — Laser hair removal typically takes multiple treatments, so starting early helps ensure you have smooth, hair-free skin for the big event.
Three Months in Advance
When you are down to three months before the big event and want something to restore the youthful appearance of your skin, microneedling may be a good option. This procedure uses tiny needles to puncture the skin and trigger a healing process, which helps stimulates the production of collagen — a protein responsible for smooth, youthful looking skin.
One Month Before the Big Day
As you get closer to the big event, many med spa treatments are still available. Dermal fillers and BOTOX® injections provide quick results and are a great way to reduce wrinkles and add volume to your face. With BOTOX, optimal results are usually seen after 30 days, so one month out is a good time to consider this.
A Silhouette InstaLift is also another option as you get this close to the big day. This is a noninvasive procedure that helps lift the face and contours the midface and cheek area. While you can experience swelling and bruising, it typically resolves within a week.
Once you’ve decided to go after your goals, there’s not much that can stop you. But when you’re deciding the best way to achieve your ideal body, you have a few options to consider. What’s the best method of body contouring to get you to your goals? Nonsurgical options like VelaShape®? Or is traditional liposuction the best route?
VelaShape is a non-invasive option for body contouring and cellulite reduction. It uses a combination of infrared light, bipolar radiofrequency energy and a vacuum to heat fat cells, surrounding connective tissue and collagen fibers in the skin. This is designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production to help you achieve a more taught, toned figure. VelaShape can be used on the neck, arms, thighs, backside, flanks and abdomen.
You should be able to gradually see the results of your treatments, but most clients opt for 3 sessions for best results.
Nonsurgical Body Contouring vs. Lipo
Where liposuction and VelaShape differ is largely in their invasiveness and their recovery time. With VelaShape, each treatment takes about 30 to 40 minutes and you can resume your normal activity right after. Liposuction, on the other hand, is an invasive surgery with significant recovery time.
The best way to determine which is right for you — nonsurgical body contouring vs. lipo — is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Moein. In your consultation, you’ll discuss your goals, what you can expect to achieve and ultimately which procedure is right for you.
