Spring is in the air, so it’s time to ditch the baggy winter clothes and finally dig out your summer wardrobe again. The thing is, you may have been neglecting your beauty routine a little over the colder months, and who can blame you when all any of us want to do is hide under our cozy sweaters and expose as little skin as possible to the cold? If you want to look your best before summer arrives, there’s still plenty of time to treat yourself to some med spa or laser treatments to help boost your confidence before you hit the beach.
1. Clear + Brilliant
If you’re worried about premature aging or pesky fine lines and bumpy skin that simply won’t be corrected by exfoliation and everyday skincare, you may be interested in adding Clear + Brilliant to your med spa wish list. The expert team at your med spa will be able to assess your suitability for the laser treatment, which can tackle enlarged pores, blemishes and other imperfections on both your face and body.
The non-invasive procedure could be just the thing to add the finishing touches to your spring and summer look. It normally takes between 4 and 6 treatments, taking around 30 minutes each, to get optimal results from Clear + Brilliant. Depending on how careful you are about following a suitable skincare regimen after treatment, the results could see you through the summer.
2. Halo by Sciton
This gentler alternative to traditional laser treatment has the added benefit of being adaptable to meet a wide range of skincare needs. Suitable for most skin types, Halo laser skin rejuvenation can help you to reduce uneven skin tone, sun damage, visible signs of aging and skin which isn’t quite as smooth as you’d like it to be.
Just as Halo is appropriate for a range of imperfections and skin types, the treatment can be tailored to suit your requirements. When you contact your med spa to arrange a consultation, you can discuss whether a low number of deeper treatments or several lighter treatments will be most appropriate. You may even find that only one session is needed.
You should only ever work with a reputable med spa with qualified professionals carrying out laser treatments.
3. Sciton BBL™ Photofacial
Sciton BBL™ Photofacial uses broadband light technology to deliver outstanding results. By stimulating the production of collagen, the treatment can improve the appearance of fine blood vessels, sun damage and dark spots. Photofacial treatments can also go a long way towards helping you to tackle uneven skin tone, skin laxity, acne, enlarged pores and other imperfections which may be affecting how you feel about your complexion. Whatever you’re targeting with Sciton BBL™ Photofacial, it’s normally recommended that you have between 4 and 6 treatments a few weeks apart, with each session taking around 20 to 30 minutes.
4. Laser Hair Removal
While many laser treatments focus on the skin and reducing the appearance of common issues, laser hair removal can also provide great results. It does require a few sessions, normally between 6 and 9, with a few weeks between each of them, but it could be the end of regular waxing, plucking, threading and shaving. If you’re planning laser hair removal, remember that you’ll be asked to stop removing hair around 6 weeks before the first treatment, as it works by targeting the hair follicle. It’ll be worth it when you’re enjoying the results and a far more convenient summer. Bear in mind that laser hair removal can’t be used near the eyes, so isn’t suitable for eyebrows, and won’t work on very fair hair.
Those pesky lumps and bumps don’t need to hold you back from embracing that beachwear this summer, even if you don’t want to go as far as liposuction. Coolsculpting® is a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative, which has been proven to achieve excellent results. Suitable for those who are at a healthy weight and following a good diet and exercise regimen, Coolsculpting® can reduce stubborn pockets of fat standing between you and a streamlined figure.
In most cases, there’s no discomfort involved in Coolsculpting® treatment and no scarring or recovery to worry about. When you attend a consultation to discuss your requirements, a personalized plan can be developed for you by your med spa clinic’s experienced staff.
6. BOTOX® Cosmetic
Polishing your look for spring and summer doesn’t need to be a time-consuming process, as treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic can be done on your lunch hour. Wave goodbye to those crow’s feet, frown lines or wrinkles with no recovery or downtime required. You can go straight back to work or your usual daily activities when you leave your med spa clinic, allowing your BOTOX® results to develop. The treatment will take just 15 to 20 minutes, with results normally visible within 1 or 2 days. The full results can take up to 30 days to become evident.
7. Vein Treatment
Another common complaint amongst those working towards a great spring and summer body is unwelcome visible veins. If you’d like to tackle some veins which are ruining your look and affecting your body confidence, a reputable med spa clinic may be able to help. Sclerotherapy uses an injectable solution to encourage a section of enlarged vein to collapse and dissolve over time, leaving you with legs you’re happy to bare when the weather hots up.
If you’re considering vein treatment this spring, bear in mind that several sessions will be needed, as only a small section can be targeted at once. Normally, each treatment will take around 30 minutes and focus on a number of visible veins. As with other med spa and laser treatment, you should always work with a reputable clinic.
