“Glow Up” is a buzzword that’s been going around for a while now, and mostly refers to that miraculous moment when a teen overcomes the ‘ugly duckling’ phase – i.e. all the awkwardness of puberty such as acne, skin blemishes, weight gain or braces – and transforms into a swan of near-perfection. But glow ups are possible for anyone at any age thanks to the ever-evolving med spa treatments that harness the skin’s ability to heal, replenish and transform itself.
Glow Up Treatments for Teens
If you’re dealing with embarrassing puberty-related skin problems, you don’t need to suffer through a phase that seems like it will never end. There are med spa treatments that can help nudge nature along and make your glow up happen sooner than later! Some of our treatments are geared specifically toward teen issues such as acne, acne scars, blemishes, uneven skin textures, and unwanted hair. These include:
Teen Mini-Micro – This microdermabrasion treatment is tailored and customized for teenage skin. An exfoliation process using bristle treatment tips & suction gently lifts away the top layer of skin and increases circulation to enhance lymphatic drainage and oxygenation while delivering important nutrients. This helps treat acne, acne scars and reduce any skin irregularities, revealing healthier, smoother skin.
Chemical Peel – This treatment works to remove the top layers of the skin, leaving the skin renewed and smoother looking. The Acne Lift IPeel contains a special blend of alpha and beta hydroxy acids combined with other protective agents that target all grades of acne or acne-prone and oily skin.
Laser Hair Removal – Unwanted hair is a pet peeve for everyone – but especially teens. It is not only unsightly, it traps body odor that can be really embarrassing in school or social situations. A safe solution is laser hair removal. Laser beams target the root of the hair follicle, thereby cutting off the blood supply that allows hair to grow leaving a smooth and hair-free appearance, wherever needed.
Glow Up Treatments for Any Age
There are other times in life that you might need a boost to look and feel better. You might want to revitalize your skin or reshape your body after the birth of a child or major surgery, soften some fine lines after a stressful period in your life or reduce a few age-related wrinkles. Whatever your reasons for needing a change, a med spa can help make your desired transformation possible. Skin-revitalizing and perfecting treatments work their magic to help you achieve amazing results such as:
Injectables – As we age, our skin starts to lose some of its youthful elasticity so any frequent movements such as frowning or smiling can cause persistent lines. By injecting Botox™, Xeomin™, or Dysport™ into the facial muscles in small doses. the muscles that cause those lines to form are temporarily relaxed. Injectables also stimulate the production of collagen, which helps maintain a smoother, more vibrant appearance.
Micro-Needling – Micro-needling reduces fine lines and wrinkles by harnessing the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin. A small, hand-held device delivers “micro-punctures” that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, the substances that give us smooth, supple, and beautifully glowing skin.
Profound® – This new treatment is taking the med spa world by storm because of its amazing results. Profound® deeply stimulates the underneath layers of your skin to naturally produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid – the substances that revitalize your skin and stimulate it to build new, healthy tissue. This safe treatment is clinically proven to reduce the signs of aging and renew your skin, without the use of harsh chemicals or surgery.
Fraxel Laser Skin Treatment – This treatment is great for treating both acne and acne scars. Fraxel 1550 is a laser treatment for skin resurfacing and treatment of acne scars. This heat-based treatment stimulates collagen to diminish the appearance of acne and acne scars giving your skin a smoother, near-flawless appearance.
CoolSculpting – If you’ve tried dieting and exercising and can’t seem to get rid of stubborn fat, then consider the CoolSculpting treatment. This procedure literally freezes away those unwanted bulges by applying controlled cooling to gently target fat cells underneath the skin. You’ll be surprised at the smoother appearance even one treatment can bring.
