Feeling and Looking Younger

After I finished having my kids, I knew that I wanted a mommy makeover. My stomach was in terrible shape, my arms looked completely destroyed, and my legs had been carrying weight for years. I wanted a full body overhaul, so I started by doing what I could to look and feel younger. I started exercising each and every day, and then I worked hard on doing my hair and makeup better. It was amazing to see the difference it made, but I wanted something more. I consulted with a cosmetic surgeon, and I scheduled the surgery that changed my life for the better.

3 Treatments To Try At A Medical Spa

If you're interested in starting cosmetic treatments or having cosmetic surgery, visit a medical spa. A medical spa differs from a regular spa in the services they provide and who provides them. A dermatologist provides many of the services you get at a med spa, but you can still get facials and other treatments from an esthetician or nurse. You can get all the treatments you need at a medical spa whether you're new to cosmetic treatments or you like to try different treatments regularly. Here are three procedures you might want to try.

1. Dermal Injections

If you've never had botulinum toxin injections, you might want to start with those. They relax your face so you don't make wrinkles around your eyes and forehead when you make expressions. These injections aren't permanent, so you won't be stuck with a look you don't like. Dermal fillers also wear off. Some are permanent, but others dissolve under your skin as time goes on. Hyaluronic fillers can even be dissolved with an injection, so they're a good filler to start with. These plump up your lips and other parts of your face to give you a youthful appearance.

2. Exfoliation Treatments

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and gives your skin a healthy glow. You might have exfoliation done with crystals or a water jet. You can have mild treatments with facial scrubs or more intense treatments with dermaplaning, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, or laser treatments. If you've never had cosmetic treatments at a medical spa before, you might start with a water facial that exfoliates and infuses serums. These are gentle and give you glowing skin. If you have skin imperfections or light wrinkles you want to remove, you may want to try a more intense treatment that has a short recovery time but gives better results than exfoliation facials.

3. Fat Removal

Fat removal treatments are popular since they remove stubborn fat that detracts from your shapely figure. Liposuction is often used to get rid of unwanted fat on just about any part of your body that you're unhappy with. If you prefer to avoid surgery, you might want a treatment that freezes your fat. This uses a device that applies cold temperatures to your skin to freeze the fat underneath. The fat is then absorbed by your body in the coming weeks. The cold temperatures don't harm your skin or other tissues. Fat removal treatments sculpt your body to give your figure a shapely appearance.
