The popularization and easy access to the internet has made people in recent times able to flaunt their bodies for anyone to see. As people view these, they also want these kinds of procedures to get the body types they would like. These changes may be facial, on the skin, or any other body part. Ms. Valerie Calzada San Antonio is a seasoned advanced nurse practitioner with experience and expertise in patient care in the medical spa environment. Some of what medical spas do is discussed below.
What are Medical Spas?
Medical spas are facilities that involve the procedures and expertise of a medical office with the relaxing scenes of a typical day spa. These facilities are headed by physicians such as dermatologists or plastic surgeons. They oversee the operation without necessarily having to perform the procedures themselves.
Different types of medical spa treatments vary depending on the place. The conditions they deal with include:
- Hair removal
- Aging skin
- Scar removal or acne maintenance
- Body contouring
There are, however, some standard procedures performed, which include:
Botox and Filler Injections
Dermal filler treatments and botox injections aim at removing wrinkles and deep lines that form on your face over time. They also:
- Lift the corners of your eyebrows or mouth
- Decrease the appearance of crow’s feet
- Soften the forehead lines
Botox injections relax and refresh your appearance as they also treat excessive sweating and migraines. Filler injections remove your wrinkles and add volume to your skin and lips.
A treatment plan is typically formulated depending on the patient’s desired results.
Chemical peels, facials, and hydra facials
A chemical peel involves placing a solution on a targeted skin area that forces it to exfoliate and peel off. This aims at improving the appearance of your skin on the neck, hands, and face.
Facials typically involve a form of microdermabrasion to assist skin exfoliation. Hydrafacials, on the other hand, use water suction technology to remove dirt and debris from the pores of your face. A unique booster that improves your skin’s natural health is used depending on your skin type and needs.
Body sculpting is a fat removal procedure that does not involve surgery. Fifteen minutes may be enough to target and remove stubborn fat bundles from your body. This technique is permanent with near-perfect effectiveness. A large chunk of your fat pockets may be removed in one go. This procedure may also raise your muscle thickness and mass of the targeted areas.
A 3D body scan may also be available to compare your lean body mass with the amount of fat that is in your body.
Laser Hair Removal
This uses advanced laser technology to aim at hair follicles, thus inhibiting future hair growth and never requiring shaving in areas like the underarms, upper lip, back, and bikini areas.
