As we enter beach season, it’s time to think about MedSpa treatments from Kerin MedSpa & Laser Center to prepare for summer. Since many MedSpa treatments require several sessions to achieve optimal results, starting early is essential. Some treatments may have a prolonged healing time or may need a few weeks to start seeing results, so now is the perfect time for these services.
QWO is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment for cellulite. Cellulite is a condition of the skin where over time, the skin will thin, fat cells bulge, and fibrous bands develop, which create dimples. QWO specifically targets the fibrous bands, redistributes fat cells, and stimulates new collagen growth to thicken the skin. This results in the reduction of dimples creating smooth skin. During treatment, a small needle is used to inject each dimple. QWO requires three treatments spaced three weeks apart, so it is important to get started early and plan.
Another great treatment to consider for the summer is Body Contouring. Body contouring can be achieved with fat reduction, muscle building, or combining the two. Fat reduction can be done non-invasively with our CoolSculpting Elite for smaller bulges of fat or with our minimally-invasive Vaser Liposuction for larger areas of fat.
Coolsculpting works by freezing the fat, causing damage to fat cells, leading to a 20-25% reduction in the treated area. Most areas will need two treatments, spaced one month apart, to get “WOW” results, and it takes 2-4 months to get the final result.
Vaser liposuction works by using ultrasound energy under the skin to help separate the fat cells making them easier to remove by liposuction. Vaser is used for areas with larger amounts of fat or where more contouring is desired. Due to its gentle nature, Vaser is typically performed with local anesthesia and has a fast recovery.
Once all the fat is out of the way, CoolTone can be used to help build muscle tone. FDA-approved for use on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, CoolTone delivers targeted magnetic pulses causing strong muscle contraction. This non-invasive treatment will strengthen, tone, and firm the targeted muscle. Multiple sessions are needed to see results, so a treatment plan needs to be developed to prepare you for summer.
Of course, don’t start summer without neurotoxins and fillers. Neurotoxins, like Botox and Jeuveau, help reduce fine lines and wrinkles by weakening the muscles that create these lines. Results are typically seen one week after treatment and will last approximately three months or more. Fillers, like Juvederm, Versa, and Restylane, are used to correct deeper lines and wrinkles, augment cheekbones, and can be used to add volume to the lips and chin. Various fillers are available, so it is important to discuss your cosmetic goals to choose the suitable filler for your needs.
