Here’s a look at a few of our essential summer prepping treatments to start ASAP:
Laser hair removal
The top of our summer prepping list is laser hair removal, of course. This non-invasive laser treatment disables targeted hair follicles with intense heat. To achieve your goal of hair-free skin, you’ll need a series of treatments, typically spaced four to six weeks apart. This is because laser hair removal only works on active follicles, and your follicles are not consistently active. A series of treatments spaced over several months will ensure we treat every last unwanted hair. It’s important to keep in mind that hair growth is an unpredictable process, which means dormant hair follicles can be reawakened from hormone fluctuations and other causes. This means you’ll likely need touch-up treatments in the future. It doesn’t mean the laser hair removal treatment didn’t work — it just means you are human! For all these reasons, we prefer to think of laser hair removal as an ongoing process for most people, not a one-and-done treatment.
QWO® cellulite injectable
Skin texture can be another confidence robber if you happen to be one of the many women with cellulite on your buttocks. Fortunately, we can help reduce the appearance of cellulite with QWO, an injectable treatment that takes just 10 minutes to administer. QWO contains enzymes — called collagenases — which are believed to target a structural cause under your skin. Though scientists are still working to understand the exact role QWO plays, it’s thought to work by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
You’ll want to start QWO treatments now because it typically requires a series of three treatments, spaced 21 days apart. Your improvements will be gradual, but you should start noticing benefits within 10 weeks after starting your QWO regimen.
FDA-cleared CoolSculpting literally freezes away targeted fat cells, which means you can whittle away a muffin top, thigh fat or belly pooch without surgery. The catch is timing because it can take up to three months to see the results of one treatment. For your best results, we also recommend a series of treatments. This means your best bet is starting CoolSculpting at least six months before you want to start seeing benefits. We can help you devise the best regimen for you during your personal consultation.
FDA-cleared EMSCULPT is a muscle toning treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM™) to deliver impressive body contouring results on the abdomen, buttocks, arms and legs. EMSCULPT requires a series of at least four sessions spaced two to three days apart. We have found that you may love your results so much that you’ll be inspired to undergo another series to enhance and maintain your benefits.
The wintertime is great for hibernating by the fire, but it’s also an ideal time to treat yourself to life-changing aesthetic treatments at your favorite medical spa (that’s us!). To discover your summer-prepping regimen, call us at 918.948.9639 or request a consultation online today.
