New Year, New You: Best MedSpa Treatments to Turn Back Timeposted January 01, 2020
A new decade is officially upon us. The new year is a great time to make some ambitious resolutions — but why not gift yourself with one instead? Unlike those lofty new year’s resolutions, our med spa treatments will give you guaranteed results. Here’s how you can turn back the clock for your skin in 2020.
Got some crow’s feet or fine lines that you wish you could melt away? Don’t we all. With a little help from Botox, you can. This non-invasive injection works by blocking muscle contractions, which softens the targeted lines and wrinkles that we naturally amass with age. Botox is an incredibly popular treatment because it’s non-surgical and gives uniquely natural-looking results.
While Botox used to be most common for people in their 40s and up, more and more young’uns in their 30s and even 20s are electing to have preventative Botox, which prevents some lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place.
Cosmetic fillers have taken the beauty and medical industries by storm in the past few years with their ability to prevent and even reverse the signs of aging in a natural and non-invasive way. Patients love how these injectables give them a subtle look with long-lasting results.
If you’ve been thinking about filling in age lines around your nose, eyes, or mouth for a plumper appearance, you can’t go wrong with Restylane or Juvederm. These two FDA-approved filler families use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in all living cells that regulates elastin to keep your skin plump, maintain its moisture, and smooth it out for a natural-looking, youthful appearance.
If you wish you could reverse gravity’s effect on your skin, we’ve got good news — you can! As we age, our skin loses its suppleness because it isn’t able to produce as much collagen as it did in our younger years. But there’s a non-invasive way to improve your skin’s tone, texture, and tightness — and the results are beautifully natural.
At Viva Day Spa + Med Spa, we use the Forma skin tightening device by InMode as a non-surgical way to restore skin elasticity. It’s safe and effective to use for the face, neck, forehead, jowls, underarms, inner and outer thighs, and abdomen. Forma offers a non-surgical alternative to techniques like surgery and liposuction, which means convenient improvement of loose skin and wrinkles.
Got some cellulite or fat deposits that you’d like to magically banish? Welcome to living inside a human body. Body fat is essential for our health, but we don’t always love the way it looks in some places. Thankfully,FDA-approved Evolve Trim Body Contouring is a non-invasive solution for fat and cellulite reduction and body sculpting. It uses radiofrequency (RF) energy, deep tissue heating, and light vacuum pressure to banish unwanted fat deposits.
How does the magic actually work? The Evolve Trim hands-free applicators (6 paddles per treatment) are placed on the treatment area — or areas. The radiofrequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissue to heat. The heated fat tissue contracts, which tightens the skin and melts fat cells over time. This collagen for skin tightening is safe and efficient, with natural-looking results, and it can save you the need for an expensive gym membership and months of grueling exercise!
Got some skin issues you’d like to clear up this year? Welcome to the club. As we age, our skin seems to take on a whole host of issues, from fine lines and wrinkles to sun damage, age spots, large pores, and uneven skin tone and texture. Thankfully, there’s a solution that almost sounds too good to be true.
Traditional microneedling works on the theory of how great your skin is at naturally healing itself. It uses microscopic needles to create micro “injuries” on your skin. As your skin quickly heals those tiny wounds, it creates cell turnover, which rejuvenates the top layers of your skin. This then eliminates surface scarring and reduces the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles.
Morpheus8 RF microneedling adds an extra element to the traditional method by also utilizing radiofrequency for even more dramatic results. By heating the underlying layers of skin, it allows for a deeper penetration into the dermis, which means even better skin tightening and scar and blemish reduction.
It’s a bummer. But the process of aging does its thing on our lady areas inside and out —in the same way it affects our face, neck and other parts of our body. Over time, women lose laxity (tightness) in the internal vaginal canal. Add childbirth to the mix and you can see how easily we get stretched out. Not to mention all of the women who experience stress urinary incontinence as a result. Ever pee when you sneeze, cough, exercise, or lift heavy things?
Then there’s menopause. Vaginal dryness usually come along with it. The good news in all of this is that help exists! Votiva vaginal rejuvenation utilizes radiofrequency to help regenerate collagen which, in turn, improves tightness, sensation, and lubrication. It’s non-surgical, has no downtime, and is painless!
