Today’s Targeted Fillers Meet Individual Needs

by Stephanie Schlageter

The benefits of injectables and fillers have been making headlines for more than a decade, but the makers of these anti-aging products have more recently evolved them into targeted solutions for specific needs. Rather than a one-filler-fits-all-lines mentality, dermal filler brands like Juvéderm now offer solutions developed to match various areas of the face so that precisely the right consistency can be used to fill lines, add volume, plump lips, and more. As always, dermal fillers offer an immediate solution to the signs of aging and a perfect pick-me-up during the holiday season. ..

Less Sun, Not Less Sunblock

by Stephanie Schlageter

If you think the time change, fall season, and cooler weather mean you can delete sunscreen from your morning skincare routine, think again! No matter what the day looks like outside, if the sun is above the horizon, its rays can penetrate your skin.

Did you know that wearing a product with a physical sunblock like zinc is the best anti-aging practice you can engage in? Because the sun emits UVA and UVB rays, you need to look for a product that is also “broad spectrum,” which means it will protect against both types of rays. You might notice the immediate signs of exposure to UVB rays – think B for burn – but the UVA rays have even more damaging long-term effects – think A for aging. You can meet both of these criteria with EltaMD sunscreens, our favorite. These products are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are non-comedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free. All of the EltaMD sunscreens are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as effective broad-spectrum sunscreens. What we love about them most is that they are non-greasy, not sticky, and amazingly transparent.  ..

Radiance Medspa is a Gem

by Stephanie Schlageter

Radiance Medspa is thrilled to have earned Diamond Crystal Level Status from Zeltiq for the number of successful, fat-reducing CoolSculpting treatments performed. This status is the highest given by Zeltiq, the maker of CoolSculpting technology, and recognizes practices that have provided a minimum of 800 procedures during three months. Few practices in the country reach this level, and Radiance Medspa is the only Diamond Crystal Level practice in the Tampa Bay area.

A non-surgical method of body contouring, CoolSculpting reduces fat by delivering controlled cooling. With this breakthrough technology, targeted fat cells crystalize, but surrounding tissues are not affected. The body then naturally eliminates these fat cells, and during the next 12 weeks, treated areas become visually smaller. CoolSculpting provides permanent results because the body cannot create new fat cells. Even better, CoolSculpting is non-invasive and quick. A treatment takes just about an hour, and with Dual CoolSculpting, we can treat two areas at the same time – that means just an hour to reduce fat on both thighs, hips, or love handles up to 25 percent! CoolSculpting is also a good option for areas like abdomen, buttocks, and upper arms. And thanks to the CoolMini applicator, we can freeze away a double chin, too.  ..

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

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.  ..

A Non-Surgical Solution that Really and Truly Lifts and Tightens Skin

by Stephanie Schlageter

Anyone suffering from skin that sags or has lost its firmness knows that creams, serums, and home remedies can only accomplish so much. Whether loose from weight loss, sun damage, or simply getting older, skin laxity signifies age and can make you look older than your years.

Luckily, there is an effective solution that, just like creams, is completely non-invasive. What’s different is that it actually works!

The cutting-edge treatment called Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to enable you to regain firmness on your face, neck, or virtually any area of the body. By sending targeted heat deep below the surface of the skin, Ultherapy stimulates the body to increase its natural collagen production, which is responsible for providing skin’s firmness, thickness, and elasticity. With just a single treatment, Ultherapy produces significant results that last for years.  ..
