Back To School Means Time for You



It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to a close, and it’s time for the kiddos to head back to school. As the lazy days at the beach are traded in for packing lunches and getting to the bus stop on schedule, it means you should be able to steal a bit of “me time” while the little ones are off learning math and writing. Take your own lesson in science, and find out what advanced aesthetic medical treatments can do to improve anything from wrinkles and sun damage to unwanted fat that crept up while you were enjoying those summer barbecues.

Smoothing Lines & Wrinkles
Keep your post-vacation look going with wrinkle releasing treatments and those that add fullness back to your face. With the world’s most popular cosmetic treatment, BOTOX, you can relax lines and wrinkles around and between the eyes, as well as on the forehead. A targeted range of Juvéderm hyaluronic acid fillers can soothe a tired look, plump your lips, or fill lines around your mouth. And by combining a Micro-Needling and PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment series, you can minimize everything from lines to pores while achieving a glowing skin surface.

Contour Your Body
Does back-to-school season have you longing for your high school figure? Recapture that svelte physique with non-invasive CoolSculpting®, which freezes away the fat, or SculpSure, which melts it. Minimally invasive Laser Liposuction also gets rid of unwanted fat, and it has the added benefit of tightening the skin. Speaking of skin tightening, you can achieve firmer skin anywhere on the body or the face with Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound technology to stimulate your body’s own collagen production, leaving you with stronger and tighter skin. This treatment is especially popular for tightening skin under the chin and along the jawline. And have you heard about the cellulite treatment that truly offers effective and long-lasting results? Cellfina, treats the cause of cellulite, so you’ll look great from any angle. After all, bathing suit season might be coming to a close, but shorts and skirts are always in style.

Tackling Sun Damage
Most importantly, if the summer sun has taken a toll on your skin’s tone and texture, it’s time to reverse the damage. When the kids head to class, make sure you head to the medspa to start a series of Laser treatments to eliminate brown spots, red spots, and any other blemishes you developed thanks to those trips to the beach. The ICON Laser and IPL Photofacial Treatments offer a non-invasive method of smoothing the skin’s surface and eliminating the negative effects of those glorious summer rays.

Typically, all of these safe and effective treatments can be performed in short office visits not longer than an hour or two. With instant effects or those that occur gradually over time, injectables, body contouring, laser treatments and other advances in aesthetics can give you a boost now and prepare you to look and feel more youthful and refreshed throughout the school year.
