3 Popular Med Spa Treatments To Help Every Mother of The Bride or Groom Look Her Best

Spring is almost in the air and with it comes wedding season. If you are a mother of the bride or groom, you are not going to want to show up to your child’s wedding looking anything less than fabulous. Healthy Solutions Med Spa has everything you need from facials and weight loss programs, to non-invasive body sculpting treatments to help you look like the best version of yourself.

There was a time when a manicure/pedicure and a facial was considered “party prep.” Today, we’ve got HydraFacials, Botox, teeth whitening, IV vitamin therapy, and non-surgical treatments to help you prepare for that significant milestone.

So what are the latest and greatest Med Spa treatments and services getting done in preparation for the big day? Women and men are turning to CoolSculpting, medical weight loss programs, and Kybella to help them look and feel their best – all offered at Healthy Solutions Med Spa.

CoolSculpting:

Think Spanx! But a more permanent body shaping medical treatment. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that permanently freezes away stubborn fat from areas of the body that don’t respond to diet and exercise such as the abdomen, legs, arms, back, chin, and chest.

This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges without needles, cutting, stitching, anesthesia, or recovery time. It is safe, FDA-cleared and effective.

If you’re considering showing up in a super sleek gown but don’t want to spend the day sucking in your gut, CoolSculpting can help you achieve a more slender looking abdomen. It can also create more flattering and toned looking arms as well as reduce that annoying bulge from bra fat – so you can feel confident and enjoy one of the most special days of your life.

Kybella:

Say cheese! If while looking to find your best angle you suddenly discover a double chin, don’t panic. Kybella treatments can help. Kybella is a fat dissolving injectable used on adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin.

The FDA-approved super shot contains a naturally occurring molecule that melts away fat. The acid will destroy your double chin-causing fat cells, and help you attain a tighter and thinner profile. A series of 2 to 3 treatments are recommended. Best of all, the results are permanent. So grab your selfie stick and schedule a free consultation today.

HCG Diet:

Remember those 10 to 15 pounds you meant to lose but didn’t? If there was ever an occasion to finally do it, your child’s wedding is it!

HCG is a hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). In a very small dose, it has been studied to produce dramatic weight loss by targeting your fat for fuel on a low-calorie diet. Patients average 1 pound a day weight loss and a 30 to 42 day course is common.

While on HCG, patients report decreased appetite and increased energy. The HCG diet is a great strategy to jump-start you on the way to your ultimate goals. It is available in injections, oral drops, and a cream. A free consultation is required before beginning treatment. If you are looking for an HCG doctor in the Bucks County area, call (267) 388-4692

Whether you opt for CoolSculpting, Kybella or HCG Diet – or decide to do them all, you will arrive at your child’s wedding looking and feeling like your absolute best self. Just make sure to wear waterproof mascara!

Microdermabrasion vs. Hydrafacial

Sand and sea, together they rouse a feeling of Zen. But, if I had to pick one to exfoliate my face, I’d have to go with water. When it comes to exfoliation, water can deliver the same grade of results that grit can and in most cases, with a better outcome and fewer side effects – which brings me to the question, what exactly is the difference between Microdermabrasion vs. HydraFacial – lets dive in!

To start, Microdermabrasion is an earlier technology. It’s a minimally invasive procedure designed to exfoliate the skin by using an abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin and remove the top layer while a vacuum sucks the removed skin cells and debris away. It is a painless procedure that targets dead skin cells, blemishes, and fine lines. The treatment takes up to 60-minutes and should be performed by highly trained medical personnel.

Common side effects of microdermabrasion include mild tenderness, swelling, and redness. These generally go away within several hours after treatment. Yikes! You may need to push back your dinner reservation. In some cases, patients experienced broken capillaries, acne and flakiness due to over exfoliation.

Overall Microdermabrasion treatment is a bit of a thing of the past, but it does continue to offer benefits as your skin will appear brighter, smoother and more radiant (once the redness and swelling wear off of course).

But if you’re looking for the latest and greatest, HydraFacial is the way to go. The cost of HydraFacial is comparable to Microdermabrasion, both run anywhere from $150 to $300 per treatment, but HydraFacial can be done in half the time and offers more bang for your buck. To be clear, HydraFacial is a Hydradermabrasion treatment. It’s a souped-up version of Microdermabrasion offering the same degree of exfoliation, but with an added chemical peel and facial that won’t wreak havoc on your skin.

It is a four-step treatment that cleanses, extracts, exfoliates and hydrates. Like Microdermabrasion, HydraFacial targets dead skin cells, fine lines, and wrinkles. But, unlike Microdermabrasion, HydraFacial is safe for all skin types and leaves your skin feeling supple and plump – not dried out.

The HydraFacial MD machine is a super exfoliator that uses a smooth vortex-fusion tool to infuse a serum that quenches the skin with vital nutrients like antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid as it exfoliates; by hydrating the skin simultaneously it tempers the exfoliation process and prevents the skin from drying out, leaving you with fully hydrated skin that appears younger, clearer and more luminous – with absolutely no side effects! That’s because HydraFacial removes the dead skin with nutrient based water-like substances rather than just grit, so your skin won’t get irritated.

Bottom line, HydraFacial is a quicker, more gentle way to rejuvenate your skin while providing beneficial minerals that help your skin remain a healthy glow and youthful appearance. It is the Winner of New Beauty Magazine 2018 as the “Go to facial for a healthy glow.” It offers amazing results that can be achieved in minutes.

There are also optional upgrades to a “Signature” HydraFacial that can be customized to meet your skin goals and concerns which may include growth factor with the CTGF Booster that is designed to restore skin health and helps lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. To target fine lines and wrinkles, the Dermabuilder Booster can improve skin tone and texture. And for dark spots and sun damage, the Britenol Booster is clinically proven to leave skin glowing with a more even complexion with key ingredients including alpha-arbutin and Vitamin C that brings out a brighter complexion.

 

Another option that you may choose with your HydraFacial is Lymphatic drainage. It stimulates the Lymphatic system and helps puffiness to go down on the face and under the eyes. With this add on, toxins are moved out of the lymph nodes and circulation is increased giving your face that much needed glow!

And lastly, you may opt for Red & Blue LED Light Therapy.

Red LED light therapy treat wrinkles, rosacea, sun damage and helps patient achieve a healthy glow. In addition, Red LEDs help reduce the appearance of scars, broken capillaries and promotes healing.

Blue LED light therapy is used to treat acne and blemishes caused from clogged pores.

5 Trending Medspa Treatments to Do This Fall

The summer sun is warm and relaxing, but too much sunshine can result in dark spots and contribute to aging looking skin. Now that it’s fall, you can clear away the sun damaged skin and get a healthy glow with these five trending Medspa treatments:

Hydrafacial: Deep Clean Your Face

Hydrafacial is one of the most popular treatments on the market right now. It offers instantaneous results to patients of every age and skin type. This 30-minute treatment deeply cleanses, exfoliates, and saturates your skin with antioxidants and peptides to maximize your glow. The Hydrafacial is like a power wash for your face, washing away impurities and dead skin cells while quenching your skin with much-needed nutrients. It’s a combination of a microdermabrasion, chemical peel and facial all in one so you get a lot for your buck! Hydrafacials can also be customized for your skin, giving you the option to add on boosters that minimize the appearance of dark spots, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and signs of aging. As a bonus, red and blue LED light therapy is included as part of the treatment. Blue light therapy targets acne bacteria and red-light therapy promotes healing and reduces the appearance of scars and broken capillaries. The Hydrafacial treatment was named “The Go To Facial for a Healthy Glow” 2018 by Newbeauty magazine and it is a must for your skin care routine.

Microblading: Perfect Your Brows Without Makeup

Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo that gets you the perfect brows for up to three years. Most people feel that microblading is comfortable as numbing cream is applied prior to starting the treatment. Hair like strokes are drawn on to give you a 3D, more defined, and natural look that everyone will think they are your actual eye brows. Treatment time is about two hours with two appointments spaced six weeks apart. A touch up is recommended about a year after treatment. If you have over tweezed or have sparse brows, then this treatment is for you. No more filling in brows!

VI Peel: Reveal A New And Fresh Complexion

VI Peels uncover a new layer to your skin, improving the tone, texture, and clarity. This peel treatment is painless and includes a combination of TCA (trichoroacetic acid), Vitamin A (retinoic acid), Salicylic acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C (l-ascrobic acid) that is brushed onto your face, chest, or back, left to set for several minutes, and then gently removed. The VI Peel is safe for all skin types and reduces hyperpigmentation, age spots, wrinkles, and melasma while stimulating the production of collagen. In addition to the regular VI Peel, there is another one specifically that targets acne and reduces blemishes called the VI Purify. Following your treatment, you are sent home with after care post peel products that include a moisturizer, sun screen, and an anti-itch cream as about two or three days later, you will start to see dead skin cells flake off from your face over the course of two to three days. But, that downtime will be worth it once you see your newer and more vibrant skin.

Microneedling: Resurfacing Treatment

Microneedling uses a powerful surgical grade micro pen with tiny needles that creates controlled, superficial micro-injuries which tighten up pores and cause production of collagen and elastin. This resurfacing treatment reduces the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and textural issues making this one of the hottest correcting and anti-aging treatments that is highly sought after. Treatment time is about thirty minutes. Immediately after the treatment, your skin will look red and subside over the course of two to three days. Once this downtime has passed, you will love your newer layer of smoother and younger-looking skin.

Photo Facial: Get Flawless Looking Skin

Photo Facials deliver energy or intense pulsed light (IPL) into your skin using a state-of-the-art device, causing sun spots, age spots, rosacea, and spider veins to fade away. You will notice a clearer complexion immediately after this brief, thirty-minute treatment. The amount of treatments needed depends on your skin’s concerns. If you are trying to treat dark spots, you may need several treatments to get complete clearance but if you are treating facial veins, those can be zapped away instantaneously.

Whether you are in the market to repair your skin from the effects of the summer sun or trying to lose weight and looking for a weight loss doctor near Newtown, you can trust Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano weight loss and aesthetic medicine to help you achieve your weight loss and aesthetic goals.

Top Three Medical Weight-Loss Questions Answered

If you’ve been carrying around a few extra pounds, you’re certainly not alone—with an estimated 160 million Americans now being identified as either overweight or obese, the fight against fat has never been more urgent. Unfortunately, many dieters find it difficult or seemingly impossible to shed the pounds on their own. Some have even given up on their journey towards health due to a scale that won’t budge. Fortunately there is a great option for people with a Board Certified Obesity Medicine Doctor called Medical Weight Loss.

 

In seeking ways to lose weight, people in the know have turned to Medical Weight Loss. These medical diet programs are different because they offer guidance and program planning from physicians who have devoted their lives to helping clients maintain a healthy weight. But what is medical weight loss, and how can it help you to reach your goals? Read on to learn three quick facts about medical weight loss.

How does being overweight effect my health?

Carrying around a few extra pounds may not seem like a big deal but living with excess fat can have serious consequences for your long-term health. Doctors have linked an overweight or obese BMI to a host of conditions, ranging from Type-II diabetes to certain types of cancers.

How can Medical Weight Loss help me lose weight?

Medical weight loss differs from other weight loss programs because you’ll have a Physician to help you create a personalized plan that fits your dietary needs and lifestyle. Medical weight loss doctors in our office near Warrington offer personalized consultations, comprehensive medical evaluations, metabolism and body composition testing as well as customized nutrition plans. Dr. Michael Luciano’s Medical Weight Loss programs include incorporating the ketogenic diet, protein supplements, vitamins, lipotropic or b12 injections that help boost your metabolism, weight loss medications, and the options of hormone medications like the HCG diet to help you achieve your ultimate goals. Oversight, accountability, and structure under medical supervision promotes a safe, rapid, and successful weight loss plan.

How will I be able to keep the weight off after I lose it with Medical Weight Loss?

Medical weight loss is more than just lowering the number that you see when you step on the scale—it’s also about creating a realistic plan to avoid post-treatment weight gain. Maintaining muscle mass and focusing on fat loss is necessary for long term maintenance of results. At Doctor Luciano’s office, he monitors his patient’s body composition and metabolism as their weight decreases using the latest technology ensuring that you are on the right track and staying healthy. At Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano medspa near Richboro, PA, Dr. Luciano will work with you so you can have a smooth transition from weight loss to maintenance.

How Microblading Can Give You Better Brows Today

The face is one of the first things that most people notice when they meet someone for the first time. Thus, it’s no surprise that many men and women feel self-conscious about signs of aging seen in the face. In fact, from facial treatments to Botox injections in Doylestown, PA, everyone wants to keep their face looking fresh and healthy. If you have sparse or thinning brows, you may feel self-conscious about how these make you look older than you are. Though naturally perfect brows are rare, a new cosmetic procedure can help correct over plucked, thinning, or unmatched eyebrows called microblading.

 

Microblading is a new type of tattooing technique that uses a scalpel along with pigment that closely matches your eyebrows and brush strokes to fill in or even completely reshape your eyebrows. The microblading technique gives it a “3D” effect that makes them look much more natural and real than filling in the eyebrows with makeup or getting an eyebrow tattoo.

 

Even better, microblading is a semi-permanent solution to thinning eyebrows, which means that you won’t have to apply and reapply makeup throughout the day to keep your eye brows looking perfect. The only maintenance required for microblading eye brows is an annual touch up appointment, which may be required once every 9 to 12 months depending on your skin type, sun exposure, and other lifestyle factors.

Now is the ideal time for anyone interested in falling back in love with their eyebrows to make the call to Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano. Men and women who are interested in learning more about microblading, IV vitamin injections, or Botox injections in Doylestown are encouraged to call Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano today at (267) 388-4692 to schedule an appointment for a consultation.

Everything You Need to Know about Glutathione: The Mother of All Antioxidants

For both men and women, maintaining a youthful appearance and glow is one of the most commonly discussed topics in doctors’ offices around the world. While there is an endless number of wrinkle creams and serums promising younger-looking skin, skincare professionals know that the secret to a healthy skin starts from the inside. Enter glutathione, the “Mother of All Antioxidants” and the new IV treatment superstar being used to help those with aging skin look and feel better.

 

Antioxidants are often touted as the secret to effective anti-aging, but very few people understand what they actually are or why they are essential. Basically, the job of antioxidants is to protect your cells from deteriorating. Every day, when we encounter things like pollution and the damaging rays of the sun, our cells can be damaged and weaken. Eating a diet packed with antioxidant-rich foods (like fresh fruits and vegetables, dark chocolate, and even wine!) can help fend off environmental damage and keep your cells working properly.

Glutathione is a relatively simple antioxidant, but its benefits are so diverse and powerful that many doctors are exploring IV vitamin therapy involving glutathione to counteract toxins in the body. Some patients that are looking for natural and alternative anti-aging treatments choose IV Vitamin therapy with glutathione. Other patients like to receive IV Vitamin therapy in addition to their Botox treatments in Bucks County to enhance their youthful appearance.

With a structure that makes it conducive to the neutralization of many toxins, glutathione is being called the “Mother of All Antioxidants” thanks to its versatility in protecting cells and helping collagen cells (those responsible for skin elasticity) stay fresh and bouncy.

While glutathione can be introduced into the body through diet, the most effective way to see the benefits of this anti-aging star is through IV therapy. For those who are searching for the secret to looking and feeling younger or a weight loss doctor in Doylestown, a call to Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano should be the first step. Call 267-388-4692 to schedule your visit or to learn more.
