Do you have a big summer vacation planned that you’d love to look your best for? Or maybe you’re just planning on lounging by the pool or catching some waves. Whatever you have planned for the summer, these three med spa treatments can be the perfect complement to your beach-ready look. And best of all, they take only minutes to perform and you can see results quickly.
We’ve all been there — you’ve worked so hard in the gym to be beach-body-ready for summer, and then swimsuit season hits and you feel like you somehow fell short. If this sounds like you, EMSCULPT® might be the perfect solution.
This nonsurgical body contouring treatment uses non-invasive high-Intensity focused electromagnetic field technology to stimulate supramaximal muscle contractions, which are impossible to achieve through exercise alone. The company likes to say that the treatment is the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches or squats within a half hour. This process burns fat and builds muscle at the same time, so you can be well on your way to rocking your beach bod.
Excessive sweating can really put a damper on summer fun — literally. If your underarms sweat so much that you can’t wear certain clothing or are embarrassed to spend time outside when it’s warm out, you could be a great candidate for miraDry®. This is a nonsurgical treatment that can help you boost your confidence and get back to enjoying summer activities.
MiraDry eliminates targeted sweat glands in the underarm area without surgery or downtime. It works by using electromagnetic energy to destroy the glands. The procedure, which takes about an hour, is very comfortable and you should only experience minor swelling and soreness in the treatment area afterwards. Once the sweat glands have been disabled, many people are able to stop using antiperspirant altogether after their miraDry treatment.
If you want to put your best face forward this summer, consider giving BOTOX® a try. What’s nice about this treatment is that it usually takes around 20 minutes or less to perform and there is no downtime at all afterward. You’ll see results in about 4 to 5 days as the treated wrinkles gradually fade out. So you don’t have to put your busy summer on hold to erase pesky lines and wrinkles.
