Are you feeling the overall stress of life, career, and environment?
Studies reveal that relaxation has the power to stimulate regenerative responses to counteract the physical and mental effects of stress.
There are a host of ways to facilitate relaxation, including meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, and more mindful techniques.
Now, you can add regular medical spa visits to the list.
For example, the Spa Industry Association made an excellent point about the "calming atmosphere" offered by med spas compared to the more "agitated environment" you find in a doctor's office or clinic. Calming spaces have a direct effect on the healing process by mitigating the mental and physical impacts of stress.
Calming experiences also help mitigate the effects of insomnia, a sleep condition that exacerbates stress.
Let's dive even deeper into the benefits of med spa services.
1. Higher Quality Results Lead to Improved Confidence
Another primary reason why people visit med spas is to boost self-confidence through non-invasive beauty procedures.
The most popular med spa services include:
Laser hair removal
Skin discoloration treatment
Body contouring services
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
These treatments are only accessed via licensed medical spas. Following standards set forth by the medical spa industry, clients can expect higher quality, longer-lasting results compared to store-bought treatments.
Spotlighting laser hair removal, in particular, this service has been instrumental in restoring confidence in clients who've struggled for years with unwanted hair. In fact, according to studies, one in fourteen women report having some form of hirsutism, a common condition that results in unwanted hair growth. The numbers may be even higher.
Acne is another common skin condition that affects millions of people in Canada. Like unwanted hair, acne also has an effect on self-confidence. While store-bought cleaners and creams can help, nothing beats the effects of a high-quality med spa treatment and the confidence boost that comes from it.
A sign of a quality med spa is one that uses the latest technologies and treatments. Medical spas that offer a wider selection of treatments target more areas. Clients enjoy confidence transformations without the risks associated with surgeries.
2. Resurfacing Treatments Stimulate Natural Healthy Processes
Think about everything your skin goes through.
Acne, age, stress, sun tanning, and life itself all take a toll on your skin. There's only so much store-bought toners and serums can do for your skin without professional intervention.
Supplementing your current skin routine with resurfacing treatments can even help you cut down on the number of beauty products you purchase, as well.
It's all about long-lasting results. Booking regular appointments help you retain even skin texture without the need for multiple daytime and night creams.
For example, fractional laser treatments help quicken the acne scar fading process as opposed to store-bought serums. Laser treatments also target enlarged pores, smoothing the surface to reveal softer, glowing skin.
Med spas prioritize healing. Microbeams are specially designed to stimulate your skin's natural coagulation process. The newly coagulated tissue generates more skin growth, filling in uneven textures naturally.
3. The Benefits of Combined Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Do you need an extra level of care?
Skin rejuvenation treatments use a combination of med spa treatments, targeting multiple areas. These types of treatments are ideal for clients looking for anti-aging procedures.
For example, a med spa esthetician may start with a chemical peel first. After the peel is finished resting, the esthetician will remove it to reveal fresher-looking skin. You may have to undergo multiple sessions depending on the condition of your skin.
After recovering from your peels, your esthetician may move on to a microdermabrasion treatment. This treatment gently removes your skin's uneven outer layers. This treatment is great for minimizing the look of sunspots, skin discoloration, and stretch marks.
4. Maintain Rejuvenation With Medical Spa Facials
Booking regular facial appointments is an excellent way to keep your rejuvenated skin in top condition. Facials are relaxing for more clients which helps mitigate issues with stress, anxiety, and sleeping trouble.
There are several types of facials available.
If you're booking your first facial, consider starting with a vitamin E/A facial. Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent treatment for skin overexposed to the sun. It speeds up the wound recovery process, healing broken capillaries.
The antioxidants found in vitamin E hydrate your skin, helping to induce softness and fade the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This facial service is also supplemented with the power of vitamin A!
This vitamin is great for managing hyperpigmentation, acne-prone skin, and skin affected by psoriasis.
Do you want to book your first anti-aging treatment?
A collagen facial may be a perfect choice.
Your skin naturally loses collagen as you age. Once you add environment and stress to the mix, your skin could use a healthy boost of collagen.
Collagen-infused facials restore elasticity, hydration, and blood flow back to your face. Together, these benefits produce healthy-looking skin while plumping up uneven areas like wrinkles.
Other facials to consider include:
Standard facials (also perfect for first-time med spa visitors)
Eye contouring treatment to minimize bags
Lift and firming facials
Redness minimizing facials
You can always talk to a licensed esthetician about developing a regular med spa routine to maintain the look of your new skin.
5. The Benefits of Skin Tightening
You're not alone in your struggle with loose skin. This issue is common. You may have loose skin for a number of reasons, from weight loss to pregnancy.
You don't have to turn to surgery, either. One way to reduce loose skin is to book a skin-tightening treatment at a medical spa. Treatments are available for your upper and lower body, face, and neck region.
Skin tightening treatments use multipolar radio and magnetic pulse therapy to stimulate collagen production. It's a heat therapy that penetrates deep into the skin to tone, boost elasticity, and smooth uneven textures.
