A medical spa differs from a day spa in that it is run by a doctor and offers treatments that either use prescription-strength drugs and/or need to be performed by someone with medical training. A medical spa can be independent or part of a larger organization.
The Bougainvillea Clinique medical spa provides services like the following:
- Dermal fillers
- Hand rejuvenation treatments
- Laser treatments
- Kybella injections
- Body contouring
What Do the Hand Rejuvenation Treatments Involve?
In the hand rejuvenation treatments, Dr. Jeffrey Hartog will inject Restylane Lyft into the client’s hand. Restylane Lyft is the only dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid that the FDA has approved for hand rejuvenation treatments. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and connective tissues of the body. It adds volume and thus moves out wrinkles. Most clients need only a single treatment per hand to get the desired results, and those results can last for up to a year.
What Types of Massage Does the Medical Spa Offer?
Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage. The therapist uses a variety of rubbing, stroking, and pressing techniques to stimulate the blood flow in the client’s muscles to release toxins produced by stress and environmental pollutants. Swedish massage also makes the muscles and other tissues less stiff.
In deep tissue massage, the therapist uses increased pressure to reach muscles and tissues below the surface. Deep tissue massage can help relieve chronic pain, stiff muscles, and even improve a patient’s range of motion.
In aromatherapy massage, the therapist uses a variety of scented oils to make the client feel more relaxed. The oils can also relieve depression and improve the skin.
What Sort Of Laser Treatments Are Offered?
The medical spa offers laser hair removal, laser skin resurfacing, and photorejuvenation treatments.
In laser hair removal, the laser targets the pigment in the client’s hair. It, therefore, works best on hair that is actively growing, for such hair contains more pigment. Consequently, most clients need several treatments to get the best results. Treated hair will start to fall out a few days after the actual treatment.
The medical spa uses the CO2RE laser made by Syneron Candela for laser skin resurfacing. It’s a fractional laser, which means the laser emits discrete beams of light that penetrate the skin and create microchannels. It thus leaves small areas of undamaged skin that contribute to a quicker recovery. The laser stimulates the production of collagen, a protein in the skin that makes it firm and keeps it from wrinkling. The doctor can adjust the CO2RE laser to suit the patient’s needs.
