Wedding and beach season is just around the corner and our team here at Radiance Medspa is here to help you prepare to look your best. Whether you yourself are getting married and planning a paradise honeymoon or you are simply planning to attend the ceremonies for your friends, we are here to help you be more confident in the way you look this season. Now is the perfect time to begin working on your summer aesthetic goals as some treatment options require a few weeks of waiting before you will be able to see the full results. For your convenience, we’ve provided information about some of our most popular treatments this time of year that may help you reach your goals for summer.
Spider Vein Removal
Varicose veins (a.k.a. “spider veins”) are small blood vessels that are red, purple, and/or blue that twist and turn. They are easily visible through the skin, making them almost impossible to cover up with makeup. They are typically visible on the legs and face.
For varicose veins in the legs, we offer safe, effective, and fast laser treatment that will drastically reduce the appearance of the unwanted spidery webs. Forget painful treatments and long recovery times as laser vein removal uses energy to destroy the blood vessel which is then absorbed back into the body. Patients describe the sensation as a light snapping sensation on the skin.
Sessions usually take 30-60 minutes depending on the veins being treated. Sometimes, two to three sessions are required for the desired results. There is no downtime and you may resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. Results will begin to show a few days after treatment and will continue to improve during the following weeks.
Cryo Slimming and Toning Treatments
If you have been struggling to slim down or tone your body by diet and exercise alone, you may benefit from our CryoSkin services. This procedure is non-invasive and can help with slimming, cellulite reduction, and toning. This process is done manually in 28-minute sessions using specialized massage techniques to achieve your desired result. Your session will begin with 2 minutes of heat to the treatment area, and the temperature will slowly decrease to -8 degrees throughout treatment. This treatment is very safe and offers no downtime, so you will be able to return to your normal activities directly after treatment. In fact, some people even visit us on their lunch breaks to receive treatment and return to work afterward!
For best results, you will most likely need 5 treatments within a 10 week period. We will also recommend coming in for touch-up treatments 6 months after your original procedure to help you maintain your results. Results will vary patient to patient, but most see improvement after their first treatment with full results appearing 15 days to 3 weeks after the procedure. Patients with successful treatments are usually able to maintain results anywhere from several months to a few years.
Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted or excessive hair growth can leave you feeling down and less confident about your appearance and ingrown hairs can cause a lot of pain and unsightly bumps. Lasers can safely remove hair from almost any part of the body. The most popular areas to have laser hair removal include legs, armpits, face, bikini line, neck, upper arms, shoulders, and back.
However, virtually all areas that grow hair can be treated. At our practice, we are able to safely treat people with virtually all skin types and hair colors.
Before your procedure, we will evaluate your skin and hair type in order for us to select the best laser to suit your needs. We will also thoroughly discuss the possible risks, your expectations, and the best ways to prepare for treatment. Treatment will be performed as an outpatient procedure in our office, and a topical numbing cream will be applied before using the laser for your comfort. Most patients tolerate the procedure with ease and describe the sensation as “light prickling.”
Laser hair removal is performed over a series of treatments to ensure that hair is targeted at different stages of the growth cycle. The number of sessions required will also depend on the area(s) treated. For most people, six to eight treatments spaced approximately one month apart is sufficient. Any re-growths can be addressed with touch-up treatments. Results of laser hair removal will vary depending on the person and the area(s) treated. In most cases, hair removal will be long-lasting. Otherwise, hair growth may be significantly reduced, with new hair showing up finer, lighter, and more sparse.
