Get Long Lasting Results with Sculptra

If you have deep nasolabial folds, contour deficiencies, or other facial wrinkles, you may benefit from Sculptra treatments. As we age, collagen production in the body wanes. Collagen production actually begins to decrease as early as age 25. Over time, this lack of collagen can result in deep folds around the nose and mouth as you lose volume in your face. Sculptra is one long lasting option that will help you get back to the look you want.

How Does Sculptura Work?

Sculptra is not your average dermal filler. Instead of aiming for fast correction of lines and folds in the face, Sculptra aims for longer lasting results. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen growth in the face to reduce folds and wrinkles in the skin. Over the course of several treatments and about three months, you will notice more and more collagen in your face, which reduces the appearance of nasolabial folds and wrinkles.

Summer is a great time to get together with friends and family, travel the country or abroad, and enjoy outdoor get-togethers. If you want to look your best for summer, now is the time to start preparing your face and body for these outings.

Facials

The ultrasonic facial uses high frequency sonic waves to cleanse and repair the skin, and to promote new skin growth. The waves remove dead skin cells, clean out pores, and restore the natural electrical charge to your cells.

You can also opt to get a HydraFacial. These facials are a three-step treatment, and not only cleanse and repair the skin, but can also decrease fine lines and wrinkles. The three steps consist of a cleanse and peel, extracting debris and hydrating the skin, and fusing the skin with nutrients and protecting it against sun and other damage.

Why Vitamin Infusion Therapy is Good After the Holidays

liquividaHolidays can be a difficult time for the diet. Whether your family celebrates throughout the winter months or you are thinking about the upcoming Easter holiday and spring break, there are a lot of good reasons to consider Vitamin infusion therapy after holiday seasons.

Your Diet is Lacking

During holiday seasons, you may eat more than you normally do. But the problem is with what you are eating. Most people eat comfort food during the winter months, which doesn’t have a lot of nutrition. Candy, baked goods, and the other goodies that come with the holidays can also be a problem and are not giving you the vitamins you need.

Vitamin infusion therapy will help you replenish your body with the nutrients it has been missing during these times. Although you can take vitamin supplements during the holidays and winter months, IV vitamin therapy is much more effective. Because the vitamins don’t have to go through the digestive tract, your body is able to absorb more of the nutrients it needs to be healthy.

CoolSculpting To Eliminate Cellulite

Cellulite is one of the most dreaded and hated skin imperfections. Women of all ages, sizes, and skin types are vulnerable to cellulite, and until recently no effective treatment was available for this condition. Fortunately, CoolSculpting has finally broken the barrier to offer a simple and non-invasive way to target unwanted cellulite. Here’s everything you need to know about CoolSculpting for cellulite.

Why Do You Have Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by enlarged fat cells that become trapped right below the surface of the skin. Since the texture of the fat is visible through the skin, it causes the skin to look dimpled instead of smooth.

Connective tissue changes, hormonal fluctuations, and genetics all play a part in the formation of this condition. Cellulite creams and “miracle cures” have been on the market for years without delivering any substantial results, but CoolSculpting is scientifically proven to reverse and minimize unsightly cellulite.

What Is CoolSculpting?

During a CoolSculpting treatment, controlled cooling is applied to unwanted pockets of fat on your body. The thighs, stomach, back, and buttocks are just a few of the most popular areas that patients choose.

As the controlled cold is applied to your skin, it penetrates the fat cells under the skin without causing harm to the surface of your skin. When enough cold is applied, the targeted fat cells actually crystallize and die. Over the span of a few weeks and months, the fat is naturally filtered out of the body as a waste product, leaving your body slimmer and more contoured.

Your Best Weight Loss Options

We all know that losing weight is the most popular New Year’s resolution made by men and women alike every year. However, achieving that slim, contoured body isn’t always easy. Many people find that cutting calories and hitting the gym don’t work as efficiently as they had hoped.

If you have been trying to lose weight through diet and exercise alone, there are other tools and techniques that you can leverage to reach your ideal body weight. HCG and vitamin B12 are both injections available at Bella MedSpa that will accelerate your weight loss and place your aesthetic goals within reach.

HCG: Kill Your Cravings

Are stress-eating and overeating the enemies of your weight loss efforts? It’s really challenging to control your portion sizes when all you want to do is eat, eat, eat. This is why HCG offers such a powerful weight loss solution.

HCG reduces feelings of hunger and cravings, so it supports a low-calorie meal plan that can lead to significant weight loss. Beyond killing cravings, HCG also places the body in an anabolic state that supports muscle-building and prevents muscle-breakdown.

This is critical because rapid weight loss often causes muscle loss as well. HCG can fix this problem by maintaining important muscle and forcing the body to burn pure fat instead. A body that sheds fat while retaining muscle will enjoy a stronger metabolism that further propels weight loss. Continue reading “Your Best Weight Loss Options”
