Whatever your summertime fancy may be, looking your best always in good fashion. That spare tire you’ve been carrying or those fine lines you’ve developed may be putting a damper on your mood, but no need to fret! We’ve got you covered with some of the best cosmetic procedures to get you looking your best pronto!
The following are some of the most effective cosmetic procedures that will not only allow you to go out on the town that very day but also give you a new sense of confidence you never thought possible!
This non-surgical procedure can help you reduce fat in those most stubborn of places. There is no worse feeling than to wear a fitted top only to have annoying belly fat throw off your entire look. Body contouring aims to permanently eliminate fat cells and reduce these annoying fat deposits. Body contouring can allow you to finally achieve that slim and toned appearance.
Body contouring procedures are not intended for weight loss. Ideal candidates are typically close to their ideal body weight and simply have a hard time targeting body fat in particular areas of their body. Troublesome areas may include the abdomen, thighs, arms, chin, or underneath the buttocks that despite all efforts, are resistant to diet and exercise.
Non-surgical body contouring and shaping use radiofrequency technology that safely breaks down fat cells and boosts collagen levels in a matter of minutes! With treatment sessions lasting up to 30 minutes and virtually no recovery time needed, you can resume your normal day to day routine without delay.
This form of injectable can be used to instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Not only that but dermal fillers can also restore volume to your facial features, helping eliminate that sunken or flat appearance.
Several different forms of dermal fillers exist, with the most popular variations helping to restore collagen or hyaluronic acid; both natural substances found in the body and responsible for keeping the skin firm and supple. These substances become depleted as we age and from exposure to environmental hazards, such as the UV rays, leading to the development of wrinkles and volume loss.
Dermal filler procedures are quick and relatively painless with results appearing almost instantaneously, with no downtime required. Depending on the type of dermal filler chosen, you can expect your results to last from 6 months to a year.
Having flawless skin can be all for naught if there are pesky hairs ruining the aesthetic. Frequent waxing or shaving can be quite an inconvenience and frankly quite painful. Laser hair removal can permanently get rid of unwanted body hair inhibiting you from looking and feeling your best!
Using intense pulsed light (IPL), laser hair removal permanently damages hair follicles where you detest them the most preventing growth. IPL can be used on the face, legs, arms, underarms, back, chin, chest, and even the bikini area.
Treatment sessions can take anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the area. The procedure is virtually painless and safe to use on your skin thanks to the precision of the device used for IPL and the application of cooling gel to protect the skin’s outer layer.
While sun exposure will need to be avoided for at least a couple of days after the procedure, sunscreen should be applied when outdoors during this time. Virtually no additional downtime is required with IPL laser hair removal, allowing you to resume your normal activities that very day.
