Just like a single diet and exercise routine does not suit every body, fat reduction treatments should be tailored to your individuals needs and lifestyle. With non-invasive methods that freeze or melt away unwanted fat over time and a minimally invasive technique that provides immediate results with the bonus of skin tightening, at Radiance Medspa, we work with each client to develop a customized plan to treat your trouble spots in just the right way with one or more modalities.

Our options include CoolSculpting, which uses a process called Cryolipolysis that was developed by Harvard scientists and cools fat cells to the point of rupture. During the months following treatment, your body naturally eliminates these damaged fat cells, and all you’ll notice is a slimmer shape. With DualSculpting - using two applicators to treat two areas at one time - your in-office visits can be faster, and with the MiniCool applicator, we can treat small areas like submental fat below the chin.

(1) Yes, BOTOX is still the world’s No. 1 non-surgical cosmetic medical treatment. Even during a stressful holiday season, BOTOX injections will make you look relaxed by smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines on your forehead, those between your eyebrows and crow’s feet. Results typically last three months, which will take you right through to the New Year!

(2) Dermal filler injections offer a quick way to fill in lines and wrinkles around your mouth – from parentheses to lip feathering – or to handle circles under your eyes as well as providing a lift to upper eyelids. We use Juvéderm Ultra Plus, made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that adds volume and hydration. Results from this “next-generation” filler last six months to a year.

Now that summer is officially over and we are settling into cooler weather, it’s the perfect time to do a handful of beauty treatments that most experts say to put off until this time of year. “There are several reasons for doing these treatments during the fall months versus summer months, like more flexibility in terms of scheduling for recovery,” says Las Vegas plastic surgeon Terry Higgins, MD.

Laser procedures like Fraxel should almost always be performed when you know you’re not going to be in the sun. “Most patients don’t realize just how important it is to avoid direct and indirect sun exposure for at least three months after your treatment,” says Omaha, NE, dermatologist Joel Schlessinger, MD. “Sun exposure post laser can make or break your results. Sun exposure can undo all the benefits garnered from a laser. For that reason, it’s best to schedule laser treatments during the fall and winter months when you’re less likely to be outside.”
