4 Essential Med Spa Treatments
Med spas are a cross between a medical clinic and a day spa. Skin by Lovely is considered a ‘medical spa’ given the fact that medical procedures and skin treatments such as facial are performed here. In all med spas, careful medical leadership if provided by a medical director, who signs off on detailed step-by-step medical protocols dictating exactly how everything is to be done, in accordance with state and federal medical laws. All work at med spas are performed by properly licensed and trained medical professionals. Med spas offer a variety of treatments that can make you feel and look better. Plus, every treatment is performed in a comfortable, relaxing environment!
1. Botox Dysport Xeomin (neurotoxin) Injections
During a Botox Dysport or Xeomin injection, a small needle is used to inject the botulinum toxin under the skin to relax overactive muscle activity. This makes the skin smooth and diminishes creases around the eyes, nose and mouth. Results usually last three to four months.
2. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels involve a solution that is applied to the face that dries over time. After three or four days, the top layer of skin will begin to peel off. The new layer of skin will be tighter, brighter and smoother. Different chemicals are used to create a mild, medium or deep facial peel.
3. Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers such as Restylane Juvederm Belotero Radiesse and Perlane use either hyaluronic acid or other FDA approved materials to fill out the furrows and creases of the face that are caused by aging, UV exposure and smiling. These fillers generally last six months.
Microdermabrasion removes the upper layer of skin, exposing the smoother, brighter skin underneath it. This procedure works similar to a chemical peel, except that microdermabrasion utilizes a diamond wheel instead of a chemical solution.
These are four of the most popular med spa treatments, all offered here at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica. Any one of them will leave you looking and feeling better.
