Whether you’ve had a plastic surgery procedure in the past or are newly deciding if a surgical or non-surgical treatment is right for you, a med spa treatment plan could perfectly suit your needs.
With such a wide variety of anti-aging med spa treatment options, you can both enhance previous plastic surgery results and bring out the best in your face and body without requiring a surgical procedure.
We’ve rounded up five of the most popular med spa treatments to improve plastic surgery, and also shared some tips about how to decide if a med spa treatment could be right for you.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Halo™ laser skin resurfacing utilizes advanced hybrid laser technology to target skin imperfections at various depths using different wavelengths. This treatment works by heating the targeted layers of your skin, which stimulates the natural healing process and production of collagen — an important structural protein within the skin.
Several days after your laser skin resurfacing treatment, your skin will begin to peel, revealing the fresh, smooth layer underneath. This treatment can address common signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, enlarged pores, and sun damage.
Profound® RF Skin Tightening
Profound® RF treatments are sometimes referred to as “non-surgical facelifts,” because they help to tighten and tone the appearance of your face, neck, and jawline. Profound uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen and trigger the cell renewal process. The result is a natural-looking lifting and toning effect without the need for surgery.
While Profound RF can be an excellent anti-aging treatment on its own, some women and men choose to use it as a way of improving their facelift results down the road. Results will develop gradually over the weeks and months following your treatment, and most people are happy with the results after a single Profound RF treatment.
Injectable wrinkle treatments, sometimes called a “liquid facelift,” can be used to temporarily smooth away lines, wrinkles, and creases, as well as add volume to the cheeks and lips. Your injectable options can be broken down into two main treatments: neuromodulators and dermal fillers.
Neuromodulators like BOTOX® and Dysport® work by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that contract to form fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. Over time, these dynamic wrinkles can become static — or permanent — lines on the face. This type of injectable treatment is typically used to combat lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between your eyebrows, and at the corners of your eyes.
There are many types of dermal fillers, with hyaluronic fillers being one of the most popular. This type of filler works by “filling in” lines and creases, resulting in a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. Fillers can also plump the cheeks and lips, offering a youthful glow.
CoolSculpting® and EMSCULPT®
CoolSculpting® and EMSCULPT® are both very popular non-surgical body contouring treatment options. Like other med spa treatments, CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT can offer great results on their own, or they can help to enhance your tummy tuck and liposuction results.
If you are looking to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise alone, CoolSculpting could be right for you. This treatment uses controlled cooling technology to freeze and destroy targeted fat cells. This process does not harm your skin or surrounding tissue and can be used to treat a variety of trouble spots, including your abdomen, love handles, waist, arms, thighs, and double chin area.
EMSCULPT differs in that it stimulates muscle contractions while burning stubborn fat, resulting in a tighter and more toned physique. EMSCULPT can be used on the abdomen or as a non-surgical butt lift on the buttocks.
Many women experience issues such as vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, and stress incontinence related to aging, childbirth, and even genetics. Viveve® offers a quick, non-surgical solution. This treatment uses cryogen-cooled monopolar radiofrequency waves to stimulate new tissue growth, resulting in a tightening and toning effect — all without damaging your skin.
Even better still, there is no downtime associated with Viveve non-surgical feminine rejuvenation, and most women see excellent results after a single treatment.
If you have recently had a baby, wait at least six months to give your body time to heal before opting for Viveve.
