Healthy lifestyle habits like eating right, getting regular exercise and protecting your skin from the sun are vitally important to help you look and feel your best. But sometimes, these healthy habits aren’t quite enough to address your cosmetic concerns — whether that’s stubborn fat and wrinkles or excessive sweating.
These are some of the top medical spa treatments for men and women to help you put your best self forward and feel confident in your own skin.
EMSCULPT is FDA-approved to tone the buttocks and abdomen, helping men and women achieve their unique fitness goals.
EMSCULPT is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment designed to help men and women sculpt and tone their bodies without a surgical procedure like liposuction. EMSCULPT uses HIFEM® (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) technology to induce strong muscle contractions in the targeted area. The intensity and frequency of these contractions are not possible through exercise alone.
Each treatment takes around 30 minutes to complete, and most people require four sessions, spaced a few days apart. Final results typically develop over the course of 2 to 8 weeks.
One of the most popular nonsurgical body contouring procedures, CoolSculpting works by freezing and destroying targeted fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue. This procedure can work on nearly any area of your body where you have small pockets of unwanted fat that don’t seem to respond to exercise.
CoolSculpting treatments usually take around 1 to 2 hours, depending on the size and number of areas you’d like to treat. Most people see excellent results after a single treatment, although a second session might be required in some cases.
While some swelling, redness and tenderness may occur directly after your treatment, there is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting.
Excessive underarm sweating can be an embarrassing and frustrating problem for both men and women. MiraDry is a noninvasive treatment that can help to reduce excessive sweating, a condition known as hyperhidrosis. It uses electromagnetic energy to safely destroy targeted sweat glands in your underarm area. But don’t worry — your body still has plenty of other sweat glands that this won’t affect your ability to cool down.
This treatment takes about an hour, and many people see optimal results in a single session. However, 2 to 3 sessions may be necessary in certain situations.
BOTOX can also be used to help treat hyperhidrosis and is approved for use in multiple areas, including your underarms and the palms of your hands. Although not a permanent solution, this can be a good option for anyone considering other sweat reduction treatments like miraDry.
BOTOX also works as a wrinkle relaxer to help smooth away fine lines and creases, as well as help to prevent deeper lines from forming in the future. Your BOTOX treatment can be performed in 20 minutes or less and doesn’t come along with any extensive downtime. Most people see their final outcome in 2 weeks, with results lasting 3 to 6 months.
5. Injectable Fillers
Dermal fillers are another solution to facial lines and wrinkles, as well as lost volume in the cheeks or lips. These are most commonly used to treat wrinkles in the mid- to lower-face, such as laugh lines and bar code lines. Like BOTOX, fillers do not require any downtime and only take a few minutes to inject. Depending on the type of filler you choose, your results could last anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
