Summer is for sitting poolside and enjoying the warm, sunny weather — not hibernating in your house after invasive treatments or surgery. But the good news is that with the right cosmetic treatments, you can have your cake and eat it too. Check out these five easy, breazy med spa treatments that are perfect for sweet summertime.
1. Dermal Fillers
Sometimes called “lunchtime treatments,” dermal fillers are great for a summer refresh because they don’t require downtime, so you can get right back to soaking up all the summer fun after your appointment.
Fillers are best for smoothing away lines and wrinkles in your mid- and lower-face areas, such as around your nose and mouth. They can also be used to restore lost volume in your cheeks and lips, creating a fuller, more youthful appearance.
One word of advice, though: If you have a summer wedding or other event coming up, you’ll want to schedule your filler appointment at least two weeks in advance so any swelling or bruising can diminish.
Injectable wrinkle treatments like BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin all fall into a group of botulinum toxin injections that work slightly differently from fillers. Rather than plumping your skin from the outside in, BOTOX and other neuromodulators temporarily relax the underlying muscle contractions in your face that cause dynamic wrinkles. Over time, dynamic wrinkles that used to only form when you made certain facial expressions can become static wrinkles that stay on your face even while at rest.
For this reason, BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin are often used to eliminate wrinkles in areas like your forehead, between your brows, and at the corners of your eyes. As with fillers, it’s best to schedule your BOTOX appointment at least two weeks before an important event.
3. Sofwave Ultrasound Skin Tightening
There are lots of skin tightening devices available, though some laser-based options are not the best choices for the summer because they cause your skin to peel and require you to stay out of the sun until your skin has healed.
Sofwave, on the other hand, uses non-invasive ultrasound energy to gently heat your skin, improving the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin without damaging the surface or deeper layers of skin. Most people only need one Sofwave treatment for optimal results, which should begin to develop in as little as a week after treatment.
Directly after your Sofwave appointment, you can resume your normal daily activities — just remember to wear sunscreen to prevent lines and wrinkles in the future!
4. MiraDry Sweat Reduction
If there’s one thing that can quickly squash summer fun, it’s excessive sweating. If you struggle with hyperhidrosis — the medical term for excessive sweating — you can relate all too well. But there is some good news: MiraDry is an FDA-approved nonsurgical device that effectively eliminates excessive underarm sweating with a single treatment.
While your results should continue to get better and better over time, you should notice a nearly immediate reduction in underarm sweating after getting MiraDry. So by scheduling your MiraDry appointment now, you can start reaping the benefits this summer and beyond.
5. Nonsurgical Body Sculpting
Contrary to popular belief, the summer can be a great time to squeeze in a body sculpting treatment (or two!). Nonsurgical body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting, EMSCULPT, and VelaShape don’t require extensive downtime or recovery, and you can start seeing results in as little as two weeks. So not only can you start enjoying a sleeker physique this summer, but you’ll also be set up for perfect pumpkin patch or holiday photos come fall and winter.
