3 Low Downtime Cosmetic Treatments to Get You Back in the Sun Fast
Many work throughout the year hitting weights at the gym, grinding away miles on the treadmill, and carefully watching calories so they look their best when summertime finally settles in. We see many patients at AW Plastic Surgery during this time of year who want to use cosmetic treatments to make the chiseled look they developed during the off season stand out even more at the beach, on the boat, and in the midst of the summer nightlife.
If you’re considering cosmetic treatments and spent the winter working on looking good in a bikini, it’s likely you don’t want to spend the summer healing and laying around. You want to get out there and play in the sun as much and as quickly as possible. For these reasons, minimally invasive cosmetic treatments such as Botox® injections, EMSCULPT® body contouring, and the Morpheus8 treatment can be great in the summer because of their short recovery and appointment times.
Treat Premature Signs of Aging Quickly with Summertime Botox® Injections
The story of Botox® as a cosmetic product began nearly two decades ago in 2002 when the FDA approved it for moderate to severe frown lines in the forehead region. In addition to its numerous medical applications, Botox® is used today by doctors and nurse injectors to reduce facial wrinkles, smooth skin creases, and improve the appearance of lip lines.
If you’re wanting to roll back some of the years of wear and exposure on your face, Botox® can be a good summertime solution because of the short, simple appointments—many of which don’t even require anesthesia—and because there’s no downtime after your injections. The only follow-up precautions, in most cases, are avoiding strenuous activity for a few hours after your appointment and taking special care not to apply any pressure to the treatment area for at least 12 hours.
Tone a Set of Sexy Abs and Buttocks with EMSCULPT® Body Contouring Treatments this Summer
Even if you give everything during your workouts and never eat a cheat meal, sometimes age and genetics win in the long battle for a tight tummy and sexy buttocks. The key to having definition in these pesky areas is building healthy muscle tone and burning fat cells, but the way you accumulate fat and how quickly you burn it depend on many factors outside your control.
EMSCULPT® hacks the system and make defined abs and a sexy backside possible for many who have given up after years of trying. EMSCULPT® uses high intensity, focused electromagnetic energy, or HIFEM, to create a series of intense muscle contractions. To put it simply, its like doing thousands of sit-ups or squats without stepping foot in a gym. EMSCULPT® can help smooth some of the rougher edges of your abdomen and buttocks without stealing your entire summer too. It’s non-surgical and only takes about four 30-minute appointments over the course of two weeks to start seeing visible results.
Boost Skin Appearance and Health with Morpheus8 Facial and Body Contouring Treatments
If you’ve ever heard people in your family complain about a stubborn pocket of fat, their mother’s jowls, or a hereditary double-chin, you know that the genetic lottery can sometimes be downright unfair. A simple line of coding in your DNA is all it takes for a cluster of excessive fat cells to make skin sag, cause stretch marks, or bring out premature signs of aging. The Morpheus8 facial and body contouring system combines the science behind microneedling with the fat-burning power of radiofrequency energy to pull skin tighter and help you naturally produce more collagen and elastin—two crucial structural elements in skin.
Morpheus8 is a handheld, gun-shaped device that we run over targeted areas over the course of several appointments, usually spaced a few weeks apart. You’ll want to take special precaution to avoid direct sun exposure for a day or two after a treatment, but as long as you wear a good sunblock with high SPF you should be able to experience the benefits of Morpheus8 without sitting on the sidelines for much of your summer.
