Must-Have Treatments to Get Before Summer
Start Planning Your Perfect Beach Bod Before The Weather Warms Up
Spring’s the best time of year to start getting your beach bod ready!
Beyond hitting the gym, there are more than a few minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that can help you get the look you’re after.
From laser hair removal to the revolutionary new EMsculpt process, you can get the body you want sometimes within just a few sessions!
Here are a few of the top cosmetic treatments you may want to consider, depending on your body goals.
Start Planning for Summer Now
Late winter and early spring are the right time to start planning for your cosmetic treatments. Why? It’s easy—not only are most clinics fully booked come summer, you want to be ready for the season, not halfway through.
Plus, starting early lets you explore your options and get a full consultation to determine what’ll get you the best results.
You can start planning by figuring out which treatments you’re most interested in. There are a number of skin treatments and weight loss treatments available.
Minimally invasive treatments also have the bonus of being non-disruptive: you can often go right back to work after getting one.
You don’t need to plan a lot of downtime, you just need to figure out what you want and where you’ll be getting your treatment done.
Why You Should Book Ahead of Summer
As mentioned, a lot of people try to get their cosmetic treatments done during the summer, either because they want to look good for the warmer months or because it’s the slower season at work.
Of course, this means that they’re getting treatment when the season’s already begun, so they may wind up with a lot of lost time.
If you don’t book ahead of summer, many clinics are going to be all booked up. Plus, you might not get the full results you’re after until the summer’s already wrapping up!
What’s more, laser treatments require that you avoid sunlight exposure. Why not get these treatments ahead of the season known for shirts, tank tops, and skirts? If you’re wearing a sweater anyways, you might as well take advantage of it!
Book early! You won’t regret it!
Five Amazing Treatments for Summer
Freeze the fat away with CoolSculpting, a treatment that targets and removes fat cells through a controlled freezing process. After CoolSculpting, fat cells will shrink and die off, leaving behind only the healthy skin and muscle.
CoolSculpting is ideal for long-term body sculpting and weight loss, as it is one of the very few minimally invasive treatments that can remove fat cells. Other than surgery, you can shrink fat cells but not get rid of them entirely. This is what makes it easy to gain weight again after you’ve lost it.
Millions of CoolSculpting treatments have been completed, along with 5,000 individuals used in clinical studies.
EMsculpt is a new way to tone your body. It isn’t just a fat reduction process, but also a muscle toning process.
With EMsculpt, your muscles contract tens of thousands of times within thirty minutes. Multiple EMsculpt sessions can be used to create long-lasting results, but many patients see results almost immediately.
Through the mechanical contraction of your muscles, muscles start to grow and tone while fat cells are burned off. It’s the equivalent of doing thousands of sit-ups, directly targeted towards problem areas.
EMsculpt is ideal for individuals who want to tone up specific areas of their body and who want immediate results.
Renew your complexion, getting rid of dull, congested, devitalized skin with microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion exfoliates and removes the exterior layer of damaged and dull skin.
This old, dull layer of skin highlights wrinkles and pores and can contribute to skin issues.
By removing the outer layer of skin, you can restore your complexion and set yourself up for further laser treatments. Microdermabrasion is a great treatment to get ready for laser procedures.
Over time, old skin cells collect on the exterior of your skin, leading to a rough and uneven surface. These skin cells collect dirt and grease.
Microdermabrasion treatments buff all of this out in a safe, non-invasive way. The effects of microdermabrasion can last up to twelve months.
The entire process is no more invasive than traditional exfoliation.
4. Laser Treatments
There are a number of minimally invasive laser treatments for cosmetic purposes.
Whether you’re interested in lightening your teeth, removing your hair, or resurfacing your skin, there’s a laser treatment for you. Lasers are high precision instruments that can be used for a wide array of things.
Permanent hair removal can be achieved through laser treatments, by damaging hair follicles so they will no longer produce hair.
Hair removal is a great way to get smooth, hairless skin without the work of having to constantly shave, wax, or pluck.
Laser skin treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles as well as skin discoloration, by removing skin using gentle beams of light.
5. SkinPen Microneedling
Microneedling uses a small roller with needles in it to create very small holes in the surface of your skin. These holes are extremely small: they cannot be seen.
Nevertheless, the agitation caused by these small holes promotes the growth of new collagen. This essentially encourages your body to start to “heal” itself.
After microneedling, skin is plumper and smoother. Sometimes microneedling is done with the needles only, but other times microneedling is done with a topical treatment, which can be deposited on the surface of the sin, or which penetrate into the skin.
Many of the traditional signs of ageing, such as sagging skin and wrinkles, are due to a loss of collagen over time.
Microneedling can help reverse these signs of ageing. There are few issues associated with this process, beyond some discomfort and itching.
Before you figure out which treatments you want, you need to figure out what you want to do. Meeting with a clinic can help you explore your options and pare them down to the things that are most important.
Minimally invasive treatments usually take only a couple of days to fully recover from, and they can have some dramatic results. You may even be able to put together a combined package of treatment, to get everything you want done under a single treatment plan.
