Shape It Up
When your body needs just a little reshaping and you don’t want to go under the knife, it might be time for a trip to a medical spa. Packing more "punch" than your average day spa, medical spas offer procedures performed by trained medical professionals, such as cosmetic surgeons and nurses with certifications in BOTOX® Cosmetic injections or VelaShape cellulite treatment.
Body contouring is both an art and a science; an experienced professional is needed to help give your body a natural shape. Medical spas can provide self-enhancement without surgery.
VelaShape cellulite treatment is just one of many procedures than can reduce the look of fat deposits on your body. A combination of BiPolar Radio Frequency, Infrared light energy and vacuum and massage techniques, VelaShape can help sculpt a smoother, tighter skin tone on your thighs, buttocks or arms. It is also helpful for sagging chins, gynecomastia and circumferential fat reduction.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Juvederm are two non-invasive injections that can give you a more youthful appearance. BOTOX® helps to smooth wrinkles by reducing muscle signals. Technically called Botulinum toxin, this injection relaxes facial muscles and eases the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
Juvederm can also be injected to smooth wrinkles, though it works best with deep furrows. A collagen-like filler that is made of the same hyaluronic acid found in the body, Juvederm can also give you a fuller lip line that lasts up to a year.
Experienced Medical Staff
Instead of employing the average massage therapist or aesthetician to perform superficial skin or muscle therapies, medical spas have staff that include nurses, doctors and surgeons who go through years of schooling and specialization to use cutting-edge, advanced technology and techniques. Lasers, light energy, injections and chemical peels can have side effects if not used properly. Though some spas may offer these treatments, be sure to research staff experience before trying them out. Medical spas are a better bet for receiving top-notch care.
