The often-indulgent holiday season has passed, and the resolutions have been made. Gym memberships and home workout devices are back in action. As crazy as it may seem, it’s time to start thinking about summer! As you tone those muscles and drop that weight, don’t forget about your skin. Now is the perfect time to address anti-aging concerns when it comes to your body so you can be confident in time for your favorite outdoor activities!
Due to age and sun damage, the skin often loses its ability to snap back resulting in loose, crepey skin, which tends to be more notable after weight loss. The good news is that we have the tools to remodel your skin as you remodel your body. Just like a workout is never a one-and-done solution, the best results are often seen over the course of months. Here are a few treatments we offer at Spa Medical, that can tone your skin and your body!
RF Microneedling is our go-to procedure for treating areas of skin laxity and cellulite. This treatment is not just for the face. With RF microneedling we can address most areas of the body like your hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, as well as above the knees and the arms. This procedure is done in a series of 3-4 sessions done every four weeks. Benefits are typically noticed after the second session and optimal results appear three months after the last session. LaseMD, our newest laser treatment offering, can be added to this procedure if pigment improvement and resurfacing is also desired.
VI Body Peel
Another popular body treatment is our VI Body Peel. This peel solution is specifically designed to treat the thicker skin of the body. A blend of acids works to exfoliate your skin, targeting texture, pigment, wrinkles, and or acne. With this treatment, we also see improvement in the appearance of scars and stretch marks. To fast track your skin fix, VI Body Peels are often performed in between RF Microneedling procedures.
