Medical spas provide a variety of beauty treatments that improve the appearance of your skin, decrease wrinkles, remove fat, and lighten pigmented areas. You can have treatments applied to your face, neck, hands, and body. Many of the procedures can be done on a break from work since they don't need a long recovery time. Here are some procedures you might want to try.
Stem Cell And PRP Facials
Injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells from your body might do wonders for your skin. These treatments are fairly quick to undergo and they don't need any recovery time. They work because they stimulate collagen production in your skin. The results come on gradually, rather than showing up immediately. However, if you want quick results, you could combine your stem cell injections with dermal fillers.
PRP injections use platelets found in your blood. A blood sample is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and concentrate them in the plasma. Stem cells are taken from your fat. The doctor uses liposuction to pull fat from an area such as the love handles.
The platelet-rich plasma or stem cells are then injected into your skin in an area such as your nasolabial folds. They might also be applied right after a microneedling session so the cells can be absorbed deeply into your skin. The results could include fewer wrinkles and tighter skin as the collagen builds in your face.
Your medical spa may provide treatments that tighten neck skin to give you a more youthful appearance. It's common for neck skin to sag with age or after weight loss. A treatment that might help is ultherapy. This procedure uses ultrasound energy to heat the area under the skin so collagen production is stimulated. The doctor can see under your skin using the ultrasound monitor, so the ultrasound can be targeted to areas that need it the most.
The results from ultherapy could take a few weeks to manifest as you need to give your body time to produce collagen and tighten skin. The procedure isn't painful to endure and you can go right back to your routine when the treatment is over.
Besides your face and neck, your hands also show signs of aging. Your hands may appear older than they should due to sun exposure, which causes excess wrinkling, hyperpigmentation, and thinning skin. You might consider having dermal filler put under the skin on your hand to give your hands a plump and younger look.
For this procedure, the doctor injects the filler and then massages the area to spread the filler around just under the skin. This is another procedure that doesn't need any recovery time, and it gives instant results.
