It used to be that if you were not a celebrity, plastic surgery and the like were out of the equation unless you had a ton of money, could travel to get what procedure you had in mind and could afford the several weeks rest period after what could very well be an extensive operation.
Those days are gone.
Med spas are fast becoming as routine as your morning coffee, and plenty of people have taken the plunge to change their appearance in some way with a non-evasive treatment that offers instant results in the time it takes for you to eat a pasta salad.
If you are curious about what you could do on your lunch break, take a look at some of these procedures you can book at a med spa.
Laser Hair Removal
It is summer! And while many of us are loving this warmer weather, it also comes at a price – further extensive beauty regimens.
Don’t get us wrong; If you don’t want to shave your legs or remove your body hair, you absolutely do not have to – you do you! But if you are in ‘team removal’, we know how taxing this ritual can be day in day out, not to mention the razor bumps or the fast growth that proceeds our extensive efforts.
Not only that, but it is a great treatment for those who have acne scarring, dark spots, and other skin issues they would like to see reduced, without the need for using any other serums, injections, or chemicals.
Where needles are involved, there is no denying that it is best to go to a professional, and as the name suggests, tiny needles are used to perforate the skin in order to get the body to ‘rush to heal’ the micro-tears. This forced healing process can help your skin rejuvenate naturally much faster than if you are to wait the 27 days your skin naturally replenishes itself, and also from a much deeper root too, which can show real changes.
Microdermabrasion offers similar benefits to microneedling, including resurfacing the skin, helping with a smoother appearance, and reducing fine lines. Microdermabrasion also unclogs pores and uses a unique mixture of aluminum oxide crystals and what resembles a small vacuum that hoovers up debris in the skin. This runs fewer risks of infection than other med facials as it is a surface treatment but still shows great results.
