Beyond Facial Treatments: Your Checklist for a Beach-Ready Bod

These winter months can leave all of us dreaming of sunbathing and sand between our toes. And while we don’t have the power to make summer (or spring break, if that’s when your vacation plans begin) arrive any faster, we CAN provide you with cosmetic treatments that will get you looking beach-ready so you can lounge with confidence when the time finally comes. And here’s a tip: many of these procedures require several sessions, so now is the perfect time to start!

Beyond Facial Treatments Your Checklist for a Beach-Ready BodLaser Hair Removal

One of the few luxuries of cold weather is that it can take away the pressure of keeping your body hair in check, but when the season of shorts and bathing suits rolls around, all that shaving and waxing can be a real pain (literally), and the worst part is that it only takes a few short days before the stubble returns and you’re right back where you started. Laser hair removal can be a much more long-term solution, whether you’re looking to maintain silky smooth skin on your legs, chest, back, underarms, bikini area, or nearly any other part of the body.

Viora Reaction™ Skin Tightening & Cellulite Reduction

Viora Reaction™ is one of those treatments which can solve a number of problems. It can be administered to nearly any area of your body (most popularly the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks) to minimize cellulite, lax skin, and even your circumference. The other bit of good news is that all this multi-tasking is pain-free. In fact, most patients compare the gentle use of RF energy and suction to a deep tissue massage. But for the best results, you’ll probably require anywhere from three to eight Viora Reaction™ appointments depending on the level of treatment you need, so start now if you want to be ready to hit the beach looking great this summer.

Spider Vein Removal

Despite the stereotypes, spider veins aren’t just your grandmother’s problem. They can (and do) affect anyone of any age, and while there are steps you can take to keep them from getting worse (like breaking up long periods of standing or sitting, and exercising more often), it takes professional help to get rid of them once they’ve reared their ugly heads. Our specialized laser uses targeted light to close off the troublesome blood vessels, allowing your body to naturally absorb and eliminate them. But like many laser procedures, you’ll probably need several sessions and post-treatment sun protection is crucial, so the earlier you get started, the better.

Back Facials and Chemical Peels

For obvious reasons, most people think of facials as being solely for the face, but between sweating and simply day-to-day exposure to dirt, the skin on your back can take a beating, too, and this tends to show up in the form of pimples (or bacne, as the problem is so affectionately nicknamed). Our back facials use a blend of relaxing and cleansing methods to get your back smooth and clear, and for more comprehensive improvement, we also offer chemical peels your back and other areas of the body. While the back facials can be great last-minute solutions for all you procrastinators out there, they’re most effective when performed at regular intervals to give your skin time to clear up and to keep looking top-notch.

Beach vacations can be the perfect way to relax, enjoy the outdoors, and simply take a break, but for men and women alike, vacations are at their best when you don’t have to feel self-conscious in your bathing suit.
