Combining Non-Surgical Procedures for the Best Results

The holiday season is upon us, which means gatherings and parties are approaching quickly! While everyone wants to look and feel their best when spending time with friends and family, not everyone wants to undergo procedures that require downtime and recovery. Med Spa procedures, however, are nonsurgical, and therefore require little to no downtime while still addressing your “problem” areas. Read on for popular combinations of non-surgical procedures that can help you shine this holiday season!

Neurotoxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin)

Lines and wrinkles often pop up as we age and our collagen production decreases. Botox can help to diminish the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that are caused by repeated facial movement over time, which are usually on and around the forehead. Dermal fillers can soften the look of line and wrinkles around the nose and mouth and restore lost volume in the mid-face. These two treatments are often combined to help rejuvenate your entire look.

Chemical Peels + PRP

Sun damage, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration can be treated with chemical peels. Peels come in three different strengths, superficial, medium, and deep, to address different levels of aging. PRP treatments, which uses your own platelet-rich plasma to help stimulate collagen production in the skin, can be done after chemical peel treatments to help further improve your skin strength and radiance for a beautiful complexion.

CoolSculpting + Skin Tightening

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical procedure that uses controlled cooling technology to freeze and kill unwanted fat cells. While this procedure can eliminate stubborn fat pockets, it cannot address sagging skin. This is why laser skin tightening is a great treatment to add to CoolSculpting! Laser skin tightening heats deep tissues to stimulate collagen production to tighten sagging or loose skin. There is little to no downtime needed for both CoolSculpting and laser skin tightening treatments, making them great options for those with busy schedules.

How to Contour Your Body Without Surgery

Has diet and exercise failed to give you the slim figure you’ve wanted for so long? Stubborn fat could be the issue! Pockets of stubborn fat can be nearly impossible to get rid of on your own, often requiring plastic surgery to treat. In the past, invasive procedures like a tummy tuck or liposuction were the only way to do this, but now you can benefit from these nonsurgical, noninvasive procedures to eliminate stubborn fat for good!

Freeze Fat Away

CoolSculpting uses the latest fat freezing technology to destroy stubborn fat cells for good. Stubborn fat on the abdomen, back, upper arms, thighs, under the chin, and more can be treated with CoolSculpting. Besides some intense cooling in the first few minutes, your treatment with CoolSculpting will be completely comfortable, allowing you to sit back and relax while the applicator targets your area of concern. After a few hours, your treatment will be complete, and you are free to return to your normal routine, unlike a surgical procedure that requires downtime and post-op care. Over the next several weeks, your body will naturally eliminate the destroyed fat cells, never to return.

Ultrasound Energy to Destroy Fat Cells

UltraShape uses gentle ultrasound energy to target fat cells, causing them to release fat. The fat is then processed and eliminated naturally through the body. The process is completely comfortable, with no anesthesia, incisions, or needles involved! After about an hour or less, your treatment session is complete, and you can return home with no required downtime. A few weeks from your first session, you can begin to notice your target area shrinking as destroyed fat cells are processed. Like CoolSculpting, once these fat cells are eliminated, they won’t be returning! We recommend two to three sessions for optimal results from treatment with UltraShape.
