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.
