Spring might seem a long way off (no matter what the groundhog says), but don’t worry — it will be here before you know it, and you may even already have been thinking about how you’re going to look and feel your best once you get back into your warmer-weather wardrobe. Fortunately, Azul Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa can help you get your confidence up to the challenge.
Outer beauty starts with inner beauty, and taking care of your health is the best way to achieve both. A healthy, nutritious diet and 150 minutes of regular exercise each week are vital elements for which there is no substitute. But even if you feel good about how you take care of yourself, time, gravity and UV rays can still undermine all your hard work. Over-the-counter products cannot offer the same concentrations of active ingredients as the medical-grade skincare products and procedures Azul offers. You can check out the full range of Azul’s non-surgical treatments and spa services on our website, but here are five highlights we think you’ll be especially interested in.
HydraFacial MD: This is a four-step process that includes cleansing and exfoliation, a gentle glycolic acid peel, extractions and hydration. In just thirty minutes, your face is refreshed and restored to its smooth, natural beauty.
CoolSculpting: A non-invasive treatment for stubborn body fat? It sounds almost too good to be true, but it’s a very real (and increasingly popular) process that uses intense, targeted cold to damage and eventually kill fat cells. Many patients require only a single treatment to eliminate fat deposits on their hips, thighs, abdomen, back, upper arms and other target areas, others want more to increase the fat removal. The results of CoolSculpting are not immediate — typically needing between two to three months to be fully effective — though they can be dramatic!
Infini Microneedling: Gold-coated microneedles penetrate to the dermal layer, to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This can accomplish many of the same things as other skin resurfacing procedures — reducing wrinkles and scars, removing pigmented lesions — but it has the added benefit of treating vascular lesions and veins as well. It’s even effective for tattoo removal (so you no longer have to hide your ex’s name under a carefully placed towel at the beach!)
Liquid Facelift: Using Botox and dermal fillers together can be extremely effective to rejuvenate the face. Hollowing under the eyes can be treated, eyelids can be lifted, jowls can be lifted and diminished, natural shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas and the corners of the mouth can be lifted, to name just a few benefits.
Ultherapy: The only non-invasive procedure approved by the FDA to lift and tighten the skin of your forehead, chin, neck and even cleavage. Ultrasound technology is used to stimulate collagen production, resulting in tighter, smoother skin in any target area from the chest up.
