Popular Med Spa Procedures for Mothers in New York City
For New York City mothers looking to indulge themselves in a little more high-octane beauty treatment than a massage and facial, Med Spas offer a deluxe menu of services to beautify, lift, and tone those areas that could be just a little bit better. JustMelt Med Spa in NYC offers nonsurgical procedures under qualified supervision to give moms the look they want. Some of the treatments include skin tightening, weight loss, and body contouring.
Skin tightening treatments for the face and body may use laser or ultrasound to minimize sagging jaw lines and cheeks, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and contour the body. The major benefit to these treatments is that they are nonsurgical, can be done in less than two hours with little to no recovery time, and most show immediate improvement. Some even continue to work over time!
Thermage™ is a laser skin tightening treatment and requires virtually no recovery time. The procedure is done using a special hand device which delivers a radio frequency laser application with mild heat in conjunction with a special cooling spray. This helps production of new collagen for a fresher, more youthful appearance. Although results vary, most clients see an improved appearance right away. Benefits of Thermage™ are tightened skin, smoother texture, and reduction of crepiness. Thermage™ may be used for body contouring as well, refining trouble spots such as the tummy, buttocks, and cellulite patches.
Another type of treatment is Ulthera® which uses an ultrasound treatment to tighten loose facial skin. During this treatment a hand device/wand and a gel is used much like in other types of ultrasounds, and a topical anesthetic may also be used to reduce any sensitivity to the treatment. Again with this treatment there is virtually no recovery time, results are usually immediate, and then continue over a period of time. Initially there may be mild redness, swelling, or tingling but this is normal and will go away in a few hours.
Weight loss treatments include the HCG Weight Loss Diet. HCG is a hormone produced during pregnancy which controls the mother’s metabolic rate. A synthetic version of this hormone is administered via injection and used in conjunction with a “Very Low Calorie Diet” (VCLD) for dramatic results. NYC clients can lose up to a pound a day or 30 pounds in a month.
Body contouring treatments help with those problem areas which do not respond as desired to diet and exercise. Some of these treatments include Coolsculpting®, Lipomassage®, and Zerona®. Coolsculpting freezes fat cells which then crystallize and are eliminated naturally through the body’s waste. Coolsculpting uses a vacuum-like device on the skin and is cool to the touch. Results are usually seen in 2-6 months. Lipomassage is another procedure to eliminate stubborn fatty areas and requires minimal pre and post care. This procedure uses a combination of rollers and vacuum to eliminate fat cells. The treatments take approximately 35 minutes each. Results can be seen in as little as 6 treatments. Zerona uses a cold laser to eliminate fat. The client lays under the special Zerona lights for a 40 minute treatment which is done up to 3 times a week for best results. Results may be seen after 4-6 treatments for NYC clients who had body contouring treatments.
