Many have heard the term med spa, but few people know what it is and what happens there.

What are medical spas? The American Med Spa Association (AmSpa) has defined a medical spa as a combination or hybrid of a day spa and an aesthetic medical center. Each spa will have four core elements. CoolSculpting New YorkFirst, the spa cannot engage in invasive or surgical medical services. Every medical spa will have a licensed physician that will be the general supervisor of the entire operation. All technicians performing any procedure must be trained, experienced, and qualified practitioners. Lastly, there must always be onsite supervision from licensed healthcare professionals.

What can you do to determine if your medical spa meets all the above standards? The sole focus of the AmSpa organization is to develop and implement the best operating and safety practices for all Med Spas to follow. Ask to meet doctors before treatments to get a feeling for how the spa is run. It is also okay to ask about documentation to show they can legally treat you. Lastly, do your research. Our medical spa values safety and transparency above all else. You can trust our spaces for CoolSculpting in NYC.

What are some typical procedures that you do at your medical spa?

  • Dermabrasion
  • CoolSculpting
  • Laser hair removal

CoolSculpting and Liposuction: Which is Right For You?

When it comes to removing fat from the body, individuals have many different options to consider. Some promise fantastic results, but some of them are risky for a person’s health and wallet. CoolSculpting NYCFor those trying to remove fat from specific parts of their body, like arms, thighs, or bellies, dieting does not work well. Diet and exercise make people lose weight, but the weight loss is not targeted to specific areas of the body. Therefore, many people who eat right, and are active, still have love handles or a muffin top. Two of the most commonly used weight loss procedures for people with fat in unwanted areas is Liposuction or Coolsculpting. Liposuction is a surgical treatment that takes out fat directly from the body. CoolSculpting is a method of freezing fat in the body so that the body can naturally process the excess fat.

CoolSculpting uses cold applicators to freeze away fat from the body. It is a relatively painless way to reshape your body. There is no need for surgery, hospital stays, or medication required with going for CoolSculpting. This procedure is ideal for candidates that are close to desired weights but need a little extra help.

Liposuction is an invasive medical process that requires a recuperation period. It is the quickest way to remove fat from the body, but that is because the process requires the body to be opened and for fat to be directly taken out. This method of weight loss is for those that have trouble keeping with a healthy diet and exercise regiment.

To discuss what your options are, you should visit us at one of our medical spas in New York City. We specialize in CoolSculpting NYC.

Freeze Out Your Fat: Coolsculpting Gets Rid of Pesky Fat Areas

For most, dieting and exercise are not enough to sculpt the body they desire. Those same people usually have at least one complaint about their physique that they wish they could change. The problem for these people is that fat tissue has grown in their body at a young age and exercising, and dieting does not help much with fat loss.CoolSculpting NYC

When working out, people are shrinking the size of the fat cells in the body, not getting rid of them. You can only shrink the cells so much, which means that extra help is needed.

To help lose weight under the chin or behind the arms, some people will resort to surgical treatments or experimental medications. The two above options are not ideal for any person because they can be unsafe and leave people’s bodies worse than when they started.

Would you consider a non-invasive, FDA approved fat reduction treatment? If so, then come to our medical spa in NYC to learn more about Coolsculpting.

Coolsculpting uses cold temperatures to freeze out fat cells in the body. The cold kills the fat, and the dead cells are naturally flushed from the body over the course of the next several months.

Coolsculpting is not designed for those who need to lose over twenty pounds of weight. Coolsculpting is for those who are having trouble shedding the last few pounds before achieving their goal for body image. Another benefit of the treatment is that it only presents minimal side effects (soreness and minor bruising).

Cryolipolysis is done to specific parts of the body that have more than the desirable amount of fat. The procedure can be done on chins, arms, legs, and stomachs. It is like liposuction, in that you are spot treating, rather than fully slimming. In fact, CoolSculpting can not help you lose a ton of weight. It probably will not take off more than twenty pounds.

What Is a Medical Spa, and What Can They Do for You?

Have you ever heard of medical spas? In recent years, medical spas have become more popular for both men and women. A medical spa is sometimes referred to as a med spa or medi-spa. Med Spa ManhattanSimply put, they are spaces that combine traditional day spas with medical clinics. At our medical spa, we work to blend the best of both worlds. We offer a relaxing spa atmosphere that provides procedures only available in a doctor’s office.

All medical spas are run by and affiliated with medical doctors. Having doctors on the premises allows us to perform a wide range of spa and medical treatments. Although a doctor is on the staff, not all procedures are done by them. For instance, Coolsculpting is performed by a technician who is under the strict supervision of a doctor.

Not all medical spas provide the same services, but in general, patients are most likely to find treatments for hair removal, acne, aging skin, and weight—treatments typically located at a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Non-medical therapies consist of massages, seaweed wraps, and facials.
